As soon as I administer my last eye drop, I am off to bed.

Sunday, September 29, 2013

Today was a really weary day. My head and neck still ache.
DH and I took a stroll along the rail trail The trees are turning fast by now.
I am hoping to be able to do my usual Leaf Peeping and Apple Picking.

My eyes are both still very sore. I was advised to use baby shampoo to wash my eyelids and eye lashes.
It is a really good procedure for me to do often, since some days in the fall my eyes are red and uncomfortable and drops were never the solution, just like these drops they make my eyes very sore.

The shampoo helps a great deal. I anticipate I will be doing that a lot this fall.

My head and neck pain I feel sure it is tension. I am so sure of it. I have made an appointment with my acupuncturist.

I have tried several headache remedies but so far it just nags at me all day long. I feel sure the needles will help, they have brought relief often.

My buzzer just went off so now I can go to bed early again and see how I am feeling in the morning, We have a class at senior college and I am looking forward to the topic.
Tomorrow afternoon at the eye Drs. will be the outcome that tells us the Prednisone is working or not. I was told even if it is not it has to be withdrawn in increments so it gets over slowly.
Thanks for keeping up with my blogs.

I get lots of feedback some days.

(((((((HUGS))))))) emoticon emoticonit helps me to get through it and it relieves my whining to poor DH. Many Thanks.

    That accupuncturist will be the ticket!! After that, a nice rice bag around your neck, a soothing warm bath.. ahhh.. thoughts of a snug winter with DH, all of your surgeries over with and now your peepers are done...
    you can be relieved that your DS is starting his new job, is moved and making his new life there. DH has been moving around nicely..

    We have the back pain thing, I pulled a muscle at work pulling something across the desk,,never should have done it.. but our rice bags and the Minigan salve is wonderfully relieving the pain.

    You will do fine at the eye docs...

    Pat, I am so, so, sorry to hear that your headache is not going away and that it is causing your neck to hurt as well. I think that it is tension that is causing the pains. It is always hard to do things that are suppose to help you and then it turns out that it is causing some other kind of pain. I really hope that the needles help you get rid of that awful pain in your head and neck.

    I am happy that you and DH went for a walk and looked at all the trees that are turning all ready. I really hope that you will be able to do your Leaf Peeping and Apple Picking. My fingers are crossed that you will be ok to do those things.

    The Baby shampoo souds like a good thing. I have never heard of that before, so thank you so much for sharing it. I usually get dry eyes and that makes them sore too.

    Hope you were able to get a good nights sleep. Hope that you will be able to go to your class and then to your eye doctor appointment. I really hope that the news is good. I will make sure that I am praying for you to be ok.

    Best wishes,

    Love Dot

    Glad that the baby shampoo is helping. Hope that the Pred has done it's job. Yes, the Pred drops do have to be tapered, but that's a step in the right direction for you.

    HUGS and hope you slept well.

    My hubby is having headaches and neck aches too.

    No leaf changes here yet but it will start soon.

    Maybe you have Fall allergies. I seem to have allergies all year now.

    I hope the news at the eye doctor is good.

    Pat, I will be honest. I am worried about you. I'm sure the headache, etc. is stress over the eyes. I so hope that all works out for you. I feel like your mother---are you getting enough rest? are you on the computer too much? are you being too active? and on and on. emoticon I worry. Take care. Good luck at the eye doctor!! I'll be thinking of you today.

    There are days when we just need a little bit more support than others. You have always been there for others, now it's your turn. We don't think of it as whining, we want to know. I hope you get the relief and news you need.

    Pat, I'm so sorry you're going through this but you're doing a great job and we all appreciate the updates. Thank you for your note letting me know about your eyes. I'm sorry I haven't been around. I worked 6 days this week but thought about you all 7 days. I hope tomorrow goes very well and you enjoy your class and accupuncture! emoticon

    We all need someone we can vent to. Our DH's do get tired of listening sometimes... just as we get tired of listening to them. The baby shampoo is a great idea.

    Enjoy the course tomorrow,I wish we had something comparable here, although we're probably 25miles from the nearest college/university.

    Take care,

    You don't whine, you's just frustrating to not be your normal 100% self.
