Well needed night with the hubby

OK, so it’s been a bit, but lotta stuff has gone on. I’ve dealt with people through our bank for two weeks, gotten some other stuff taken care of thru the bank, so that’s a good thing. Hubby’s work schedule was off this week, which threw me off, but he’s now home and things are, hopefully back to normal.

I stayed home from church on weds, wasn’t feeling great, kids went, thank God for friends. Health issues aren’t any closer to being figured out. I had a Dr appt with my gastroenterologist last Friday, 1-13-17,I explained to him that the meds he had put me on almost a year ago were helping, until I couldn’t afford them anymore and quit taking them. Lots of other things have been diminished out of my diet, and if he was still waiting on things in my guts to”calm down”, he was gonna be waiting till I ended up on the hospital, not something I’m waiting for, but possibly on the horizon. So, he took my suggestion and got the process going of scheduling me for an EUS, or endoscopic ultrasound, to see in the guts more than just what a regular ultrasound or cat scan would. It’s now a week later, the Dr doing the test still hasn’t called to schedule me for it. My wonderful rib and belly pain really flared up yesterday, somewhat did today, but I curbed them with pain pills and muscle relaxers. I hate being addicted to those stupid things.

I’ve been on pain pills and muscle relaxers for just shy of nine years due to an auto accident that, didn’t “cause any damages outside of a concussion and whiplash”, but yet, nine years later, I’m still having major issues and starting to lose weight, I’m feeling pain in my neck and back more so than even 8mos ago. 

Tonight, hubby is home, we are kid free, and so gonna hang with the hubby and have married people time. Everybody have a great night, safe travels, later.


About me, part 2

Good evening, I’m back. To continue my about me, in my first about me post,I touched on my health issues and some other issues I’ve been dealing with lately. As far as our banking dilemmas, I think we’re on track now, on the gut/digestive dilemmas, I saw my Gastro Dr yesterday, initially, my blood pressure was taken and told to me:150/100. Now, if I was pregnant and had toxemia in pregnancy like I did many years ago, that would be understandable, however, I had walked earlier that morning after dropping off my children to school, went home to have a small breakfast and clean up and I thought, I was fairly relaxed, outside of the fact that while getting my family ready for the day before dropping everybody off Friday morning, I had bashed my head pretty good on my freezer door and so I was hurting pretty bad. They never did retake my blood pressure, we all forgot to mention it. This morning, my daughter woke me up close to noon, wondering if I was gonna sleep all day. So today, I just hung out with the kiddos and read and binge watched different shows. Hopefully tomorrow, I’m a little better than I was today. 

I did my switchell and juice cleanse around noon, after getting up for the day, had a grilled cheese for brunch and a v8,a handful of nuts for snack when I wanted to munch, and a small dinner. I had popcorn for a snack tonight with my shows and, mental note to self, I won’t be having popcorn again. It has requested the fast track out. I’m hoping that they schedule my endoscopic ultrasound soon, so we can know what’s going on with my insides and hopefully a way to fix it and maybe regain part of my diet that I’ve lost so far. 

In the near future you’ll start seeing some of my writings, some of my craft endeavors and foods and recipes that I’ve tried and their failures and successes, and of course books and magazines that I’ve read and gained knowledge from. I’m gonna admit something to you all, I’m an information junkie. I love to know and learn stuff. Being I love to learn and know stuff,I also love to help others with my knowledge and help others by finding out stuff that others can’t, don’t want to bother with our aren’t sure how to go about finding.

I’m looking to become a freelance writer, a virtual assistant/personal assistant, proofreader, editor from home, while still being available for my family. If anybody can help me out, even if I’m hired to do jobs for free on a trial basis to gain me some experience/practice, I’m OK with that. I can be contacted here or by email at haskids2009@gmail.com. Have a great night everybody and prayers and blessings to all.

About me, part one

Good evening, I have returned. I haven’t gone far, but just haven’t posted in awhile. For a long time, I’ve contemplated what to do with this blog, I love to write, my passion is reading and writing, and of course helping people. So, I’ve decided, after in depth conversations with God, that I use what I have, and write what I know. 

For anybody who hasn’t read my blog before or read any of my posts, I’m a happily married wife of a truck driver, I’m a homemaker, momma to four beautiful children, home administrator and personal assistant. I have had a rough upbringing, and a rough young adulthood, my adulthood hasn’t been as rough, although it’s been how I’ve reacted to it and who I’ve had by my side to help me get through it. In the past three years or so, I’ve been having some pretty extensive gut and digestive issues, that, I’m still working on getting figured out and hopefully controlled. My issues started out with symptoms that mimicked gall bladder issues. That led to me calling my Dr., who did some testing, sent me off to a gastroenterologist, who, alongside a colleague, did some tests, to find out, I’ve got a fatty liver and chronic pancreatitis, IBS(irritable bowel syndrome),GERD,(Gastro esophageal reflux disease), but absolutely nothing wrong with my gall bladder. By that time, I was having my consult with a surgeon, who said, I had a 50/50 shot of having surgery and it helping or not. 

Back to the drawing board we went. I dealt with alot more pain, less and less in my diet on which I can eat and tolerate, a 50/50 shot of whether I’m gonna have to be close to a bathroom or not each time I eat. I’ve started a juice cleanse ritual each morning, a slightly different lunch and dinner routine, and still, haven’t gotten any closer to figuring out what’s wrong. I was in an auto accident almost nine years ago, which caused extensive neck and back issues. My neck issues, even a year and a half post surgery, haven’t done anything. I haven’t been brave enough to get my back issues on the track to getting figured out yet, because, I still have yet to go see the post concussion center for a concussion I endured on my own last may, while on the road with my trucker hubby. He thought he was gonna have to catch me from falling out of the truck, after whacking myself hard enough on the door jam of the truck to almost knock myself out. I’ve since bashed my head a number of times, including today. Now, for anyone who’s given themselves a concussion whether to knock themselves out enough or not knows, that once you’ve bashed your head, it’s worse each and every time afterwards. I bashed my head this morning on the corner of my freezer door, and I almost knocked myself out. I, moments later, started feeling pain radiating from my forehead down the sides of my head to my neck and shoulders. It affected my vision also. 

It apparently, affected my blood pressure also. My blood pressure is usually normal at 120/80, or close to it. Today, at my Gastro appt, it was 150/100, quite a bit higher, one, because I was fighting another concussion. I’m not a big fan of Drs, or lawyers, or any other high authority figures. I’ve been dealing with our bank in regards to our mortgage, and to have patience with people who, seems like all they seem like they’re doing is trying to piss you off, takes the sheer grace of God and his mercy.
