    Hello dahling

    Weather: hot

    Sleep: so so.

    Mood: ok for now unless something happens to mess it up.

    Plans: I have lots of plans but I'm sure I won't do any of them. Need to finish a bracelet, need to finish a hat, need to finish a purse and some other projects that are half way done and just sitting around. I must do some house work, thats if I can walk. *rolling eyes*. Yup, I have another pain issue. My outer thigh and the area where the hip joins the leg, has been very painful. I did not fall, or injure it in any way. When I walk it feels like the muscles or tendons are really tight and it feels like I'm about to tear something from the leg bone. Of course this is not the case, I hope, it just feels that way. Have any of you peeps had this same pain issue before?

    Later I will watch The Walking Dead. Ohhhh the season finale was sssoooo good. Dizzygirl, your the one who watches it, right? What did you think?

    Anyways my dahlings, have a good day. muahs

    Cookie - sorry there are more pain issues. Maybe you just need to try some slow stretching exercises and that might help. I hope it's nothing more than that.

    Weather: Sunny and hot

    Sleep: restless and almost non-existant. Worried and missing dh

    Mood: Depressed now. Out of shock zone and anxiety thru roof.

    Plans: Did OT and they dropped it back to 1x/week. YAY. Went to pcp and told him pdoc said not conversion disorder. He still disagrees. Butt hole. Explained weekend events with dh and the traveling and raised anxiety. He refused to up my klonapin until we make a definitive decision about what's wrong with me. smh. I've been on the phone most of the day with case managers, nurses, insurance specialists, and the insurance co. They want to discharge dh from rehab on thurs. Both of us think way too soon. He wants to do full 28 day program. At first they said it was an insurance issue, but i called ins and they said they auth'd 90 days inpatient this morning, so that's BS. The want him to do intensive outpatient thru their program. I'm like we live 55 miles away how do you think that's going to happen. Dh hasn't been completely honest and I now have to request a family therapy session to give my input with his therapist because dh has admitted to me he hasn't told them EVERYTHING about the history. 2 days isn't enough to stop it and of course the therapist is gone by the time i call. Talked to his work so they stop calling to send him out, but left out the substance abuse part. Even if he comes home, I'm still going to have to put him in the hospital to stabilize his cardiac issues (blood pressure is high enough they're limiting his movement around the unit) and sugar issues cause he;s either hypoglycemic OR almost hitting coma levels. PCP is gonna wanna control that cause his "specialty" is diabeties so that's going to be a major fight. I still have laundry yet to do. And pack so I can head up that way Wed. Things are just way out of control. The only good thing about this is ex has been amazingly supportive and has even apologized for having filed the whole order to take the kids away. He promised this will have no impact. And admitted that I could have taken the kids away last summer when he had his issues and didn't. So basically in a roundabout way told me I was a better person. He's trying to be there for me and promises to make the extra effort to keep a close eye on both the boys. Made me promise to take care of me and stop worrying about the kids and to take care of Scott. You could have knocked me over with a feather after that convo.
