    Hi everyone,
    Long time since I've stopped by, sorry about that, but life has been crazy over here, been trying to ride the wavess and not fall off.
    I think of you all often and always am hoping everybody is doing okay.
    Sorry I'm not a better friend or consistent in anything, so hard for me to keep my thoughts clear enough to remember much of the time anything at all. Some of you may understand that. I seriously feel I'm losing my memory lately, short term memory anyway...
    Hope you all are having a good weekend.
    I've got to run and get dressed as I'm expected somewhere soon but I already dropped off the food I was supposed to bring so they're not all waiting on me to eat or anything.
    Hopefully will pop by and talk to yoou all some more real soon!
    When nothing's going right, go left!

    I am so terribly terrible and keeping up with things lately. I think in the background I've been very mentally/emotionally overwhelmed so I've been keeping very busy physically.

    I really have too. I've been working out a lot and busy going crazy with my kids, all of whom are teenagers now and just...i don't even know how to describe. Going to the doc, trying to get set up with a new neurologist, I joined a new "better" health group, and the doctors ARE better but the wait to see them is insane. I have yet to see my new primary as she was booked solid for like almost 6 months, my appt isn't until the end of September, after the bad experiences with my last doctor I wanted to make sure I had a female this time so there are no problems.

    Other than that, just living life, it's summer now so I have a little bit of a break, honestly though I think I get a better break when kids are in school, lol.

    Hi honey, good to see ya. Hope you can get in to see your Dr. sooner. 6 months is way way too long to wait. Glad you have been working out. When I was working out, I never felt better. You take care sweetie. muahs

    To see the actual doctor, I did get in really quick for an appt with a nurse practitioner who was able to rx me my inhalers and migraine meds and put in for a referral to neurology and then, theres also urgent care, but to see my actual new doc, the wait is really long!
    So....I'm just waiting...working out does help me feel better and for sure it helps me sleep a lot better.

    Hope you've been ok, I miss all my buds
