Do I need a Sign on My Head???

Thursday, March 13, 2014

Went yesterday to the Ortho Doc.

O.K., do I need to put a sign on my forehead saying: 'I am not stupid, I know I am obese. I have mirrors in my home.'

Of course I know that obesity can cause or contribute to a lot of the problems I am having. DUH!!!

I told him, all of that information is great, but I am not going to lose 100 pounds today. What can we do TODAY to fix me.

I told him that I was working on a weight loss solution, but I need answers today.

Ice and heat were finally my answers.

Medicare will not let them give me the shots I need in my knee, unless I suffer for three months. Nice system we have here.

As you might guess, I am frustrated. Of course, along with that frustration, I ate, and am still eating this morning.

Calming down now. Working on what I want for lunch {LOL}.

Starting on a new program today. I will do my chair exercises, then use the electric massage vibrator on my legs. Hoping that will help with the leg pain. I have constant leg pain.

Oh yes, I do remember the Doc saying: 'It is kind of hard to exercise when you are in so much pain.' Maybe there is a real person under that Doc face after all.

    The Dr. have to blame something but that doesn't help you now. Medicare IS a joke to us seniors. I'm sorry for your pain. Saying a little prayer for you. emoticon

    Can you back-date the beginning of the pain so you are closer to hitting the three months?
    Time to re-group your efforts. Look for the sugar-free jello! It helped me get through my last stress episode.
    Is the weather good enough to get outside today? That always helps my mood and there's no food outside.
    Be sure to try the ice and heat too.
    I'm sorry you are having so much pain. Hang in there!

    They blame everything on smoking or weight or both.... It's a copout on their part!
