Took my Home COVID Test and it’s Negative. If I still feel like this tomorrow night, I will take the 2nd one. It’s probably the Flu.
All, I know is, I am tired of this. Tried to sleep and sweat on and off almost all day, Had a Double Migraine, and the Nausea was ridiculous. Just finished a mug of Soup, though and sucking on a Candy Cane now.
I remember when you were sick and you would see the doctor; if he couldn’t actually diagnose you, he would say it was a Virus..
In my case, it doesn’t help that with my Metabolic Disorder and weakened Immune System, when I do get sick, it lasts longer than most.
I was thinking though, and I am thankful to be able to feel pain, and to be normal enough to handle it. A lot of the children born with my Metabolic Disorder are unable to take care of themselves due to extreme physical and mental issues. I have surprised all the doctors for being as old as I am having been born with it,yet, being so close to Normal. The Disease I have is hereditary yet can skip generations.
For the last few days, Cin and I have both been sick with sinus issues. Hers is mainly a runny nose, while mine is a scratchy throat, sinus headaches, fatigue, sweating,… Last night Cin called to tell me Ben’s family have COVID. I haven’t seen Ben since Christmas but Cin has and he spent time with his family the day after we got together with him for dinner. I have spent time with Cin. Needless to say, she is getting a COVID Test per her doctor and I bought a Home Kit which should arrive in a few days.
The other issue I am having is my old Primary who is Not filling the Anti rejection I Need! I have signed up with a new doctor and Pharmacy so I am going to call the Pharmacy and double check the price of Home Delivery before calling the new doctor. I pray he will simply call it in.
I got the toilet unclogged today. It’s funny the little things you can do by yourself when you have to. I borrowed a tool from the neighbors. Turns out it was actually the pole for their awning. But, I ordered an actual Toilet Snake.
Someone asked, so I think I might have forgotten to update:
Cin’s surgery went well. She was home the next day. She gets pain in her left arm so can mainly use her right, but, the Pacemaker seems to be working well.
As for me, I have a new Primary! I can’t get in to see him until March but I have 5 refills on my headache meds ( plus, I ordered some CBD Gummies) so I should be okay until then.
I am also getting a form in the mail to fill out as a Grievance. I feel for a Doctor to do what she did was seriously Unprofessional and she has probably done it to other patients, so it needs to be reported!
Lastly, I signed up for the Mail Order Pharmacy which might even lower the cost of my prescriptions!
So, all is good, there!
Then, I went to Cin’s to help her with her phone and watch Sister Wives.
Your Relatives Or Friends To Visit ( if you really like them).
A Trip To Get Started.
Or, in my case:
A Prescription To Be Authorized and News Of A Friend Who Is Having Or Had Surgery.
I don’t know why my doctor is flaking on my prescription. I can’t see a Neurologist until I get it filled because I want a new Primary. Not because of this situation, but because I am a lot further away from her office and I don’t have a car. If I get someone closer, I can use the medical transportation on my plan. My doctor has really become witchy lately though, and I just don’t get it.
As far as the second issue, Cin is in surgery. for a Pacemaker. It was scheduled for 3:00 and it’s 6:00 now. Hopefully, she is almost or completely finished and waking up. I am concerned because she has some major issues with her Weight, Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Heart… Plus, I don’t think she is a Christian. We have talked about it and she leans more Atheist or Agnostic. Being a Christian, this concerns me.
I would like to say that all will be well since she is a fighter, but, that has nothing to do with anything. There is no real fight, if it’s your time.
In my heart and gut, I really think all will be well, but in the back of my mind.. for how long? Cin is not good at following doctors directions especially when it comes to diet and exercise.
I will probably do a quick update when I hear something.
Woke up this morning to the dumb heater alarm going off, again. Apparently, the WD 40 my Handyman (well, his Assistant) used didn’t last with the rain we’ve had; so, it’s back to my portable heater and cold nights.
Took my last Imatrex this morning then slept for 4 hours. That type of sleep messes me up though because it’s constant weird dreaming so I stayed in pj’s the rest of the day.
I texted my doctor since I don’t know why she isn’t refilling my prescription. I will need to find some new doctors closer to here so I can use medical pickup since I don’t have a car.
Cin’s surgery has been rescheduled for tomorrow. Prayers for her, please.
My place is really starting to take shape. At least the shape, I want.
The Handyman came and fixed the heater, took out the stove, replaced an outlet, and added a bench among other things.
There is still a bit more to go, though.
We are expecting a major storm in the next few days.. well, at least Las Vegas is..so that will put a damper on some organization, but it was really nice tonight.
I got my Jury Dismissal from the doctor and they actually Did fax it, so that’s a relief. I still say they should have told me I needed to pick it up. I might just get a new doctor closer to here. I like mine, but it’s a drive.
For those who are new. This is the part of my Blog where I share what I have learned or relearned this week and you all can participate in the comments. You can share about Anything. I don’t grade harshly but I do encourage participation.
That being said:
You definitely need to stay on top of your own medical issues. You cannot depend on doctors or staff to give you needed information. I need to find a way to get to the doctor on Monday to pick up my Jury Summons Dismissal Notice and fax it to the court. Then, I will need to call on Tuesday and explain the situation. Nobody told me I had to pick it up from the doctor after dropping it off..not even a reminder call and it has been there since the first. The doctors office does not fax, call or mail things for patients.
It’s good to be grateful for little things in life like flushing toilets, actual toilet paper, privacy, having your little family together (me and cats), being able to afford a portable Heater (my other one doesn’t work) and having a roof over my head.
FS took me to Port-Of-Subs for lunch today which was nice. Then, we went to Walmart since I was out of bottled water. With my immune system issues, I don’t drink tap crap.
I discovered my doctor signed the form releasing me from Jury Duty but I was supposed to pick it up! Nobody told me that and it is 7 days away! I am now panicking because I don’t want to just not go and have a Warrant for my arrest. Plus, I don’t have a car and am not healthy enough to deal with it. I immediately called the doctors office to see if they will send it directly to the court house or overnight it here so I can get a picture to do the court to solve this! The doctors office should have texted or called me to tell me this, NOT just put it on their App that I don’t check that often.
