    Morning everyone....

    Weather: Hot and humid and expecting the usual rain late afternoon or evening.

    Sleep: Not so good.

    Mood: Still depressed and anxiety filled, but beginning to drag myself out as I start gaining professional help to give me back my independence.

    Plans: Kiddos left for a 3 day vacation with their dad. Hubs is at work. This is the first day I have had alone in a long, long time. I plan to enjoy it. I have some laundry and dishes to do. We buy meat in bulk quantities so I have to separate them into reasonable portions and freeze them. If I feel brave enough, I might try to finish the painting of the mural. There's only a tiny bit to do, but I have to climb a ladder to do it. Today is hubs and mine anniversary, so I am also going to plan a special dinner.

    Have a good day everyone!

    Sleep: Excellent

    Mood: Normal, woohoo

    Plans: Hubs was in the hospital with an allergic reaction to some unknown substance. He is home now and returning to work tomorrow or the next day. Having him here has been nice the last 2 days even though he is still in pain and has hardly left the couch. The kids have been rotten all day, fighting and arguing with each other and talking back to me. I'm hoping they are done with this nonsense because it is wearing me out. Later today we might go look at couches because we are getting a new one before baby Vivian makes her arrival in mid Sept.

    Hello dahlings and humid



    plans....stay in bed. Im still sick also (trigger-ish) the womansurgery that I had done was healing nicely, like its supposed to but now it started to bleed again and isnt clotting like it should. I never have any luck when it comes to that part of my body. I just knew that something wouldnt go right. So, thats why Im still not on the board very much. uuuggghhh. Always thinking of you guys. love to all, muahs

    Weather - mid 60's

    Sleep - ok

    Mood - depressed, Ok, depressed, fine, disappointed in self, ok, depressed

    Plans - was going to go grocery shopping first thing this morning, but it's currently 1:20 p.m. and I still have my jammies on and have been going back to bed, get up, go back to bed, ever since this morning at 6:30. I had my 2nd dose of intravenous iron yesterday, I would think my energy levels would be at least a little higher.

    Tomorrow i finally see my Neurologist for follow up re my peripheral neuropathy in my feet and lower legs. It's been getting worse, and the soles of my feet hurt so much at times that it hurts to walk. Also, want to discuss if neuropathy of the tongue is what the problem has been with me over the past 4 years, the same time neuoropathy started in my feet/legs. Also, if newly diagnosed levoscoliosis in thoracic area of my back is causing more numbness and tingling in my feet. He will likley order another nerve function test (electromyography) and compare with last one to see if any significant change.

    Anyway, the day is not over, so hope to be able to force myself to get my grocery shopping done - i really need to go!
