Me again,still...

My grandson would have gone with me but he recently went to school and had a switchblade and an unloaded gun in his backpack.We are hoping his obsessive girlfriend is framing him because he dumped her.
Ruby started to cry last night and said don't leave me here Mom and I told her I was gonna try to hang on until she graduates and then she can go with me.She will be 18 in 5 years and is in the 7th grade right now.
So what Do I tell theses people ?I don't have anyone now but I will sometime?
Low cost transplant housing is sixteen hundred and some odd dollars per month,I get 1260 monthly.This doesn't match up.
I am going to try to contact the state tommorrow to seee if I met my spendown yet.I should because of my brand new  present from the local hospital of owing around 800.00 Medicare did not pay.
Does anybody else have a life so full of s--t like I do.It sounds like a sick soap opera.I am blessed still because I know the love and comfort of  Yahweh.
Can't wait till the first week of March BABIES! WOO HOO!!I love the new baby goats.I get to help them be born and dry them and watch them stand for the first time and find Mom's teat.They are so funny, looking for that teat.I will video it to share with you all.
On the wind I send you all big hugs.Go run outside to catch it.

   Yes, my life is just like yours, and so are many, many lower income peoples'.   They are just too self-concious to speak up about it, and stay quiet.
   I sometimes wonder if they ever think about what it's like for me, a poor person;  I make $11. an hour, work 35 hrs a week, and if my pay-check comes late, I have to go to the Check Center, and get an advance, and pay something like 25% interest.  My children never go hungry, but I never seem to get enough food, because of the fact that I buy organic, etc.  I havent bought a new article of clothing for myself for years and years, but go to The GoodWill Store.  I dont have enough money to get my teeth fixed, and I am in pain all the time. My daughter is now in  the mental hospital again, and my nephew was caught at his middle and high school (twice now) , for bringing guns to school.
    None of my friends or family ever even actually acknowledged that
I was going thru a difficult medical treatment, when I was on the
Triple Treatment, taking 18 pills a day, with serious anemia, and barely able to walk. I still had to do all the house-work (my husband is an amputee with other medical issues, joint pain in his arms now) while on Tx, shop, do the laundry, walk the dog, prepare all the meals, etc~
   My advice is to tell the Transplant Team you DO have a support system:  you do have your step-daughter, and give them her name. If they ask where she is, just say she had a personal emergency, but that she is always there for you, like you mentioned in your last post.
   What I figured out is this:  nobody is really going to care about us as much as we care about ourselves.  For people like you and I, who are caring people, something always works out for us in the end, and I do think it is because of our Spirituality~  
    There are tons of people on these waiting lists, and they will be more than happy to bump you to the bottem, or off, if you arent very assertive about the fact that yes, you do have support~ this is a life or death matter.

Hope ya dont mind me just opening my big living room window to catch that big wonderful hug... it is bitter cold right now (dont mind the snow one bit - dreaming of a hundred feet but???)!

Would love to see that video of those newborns! Not what it is about folks like yourself, with so much love to share, getting the soap opera from hell that seems to get deeper and deeper. A couple of years ago a sibling, who has lost that title since, decided she wanted her inheritance early (the little that my dad had saved up) refusing me any contact with my parents then kicking mom out of her house leaving dad to (nearly) die in her house before we rescued him but having mom get so sick from all the stress & getting so sick putting her in a coma etc etc etc - and the witch still thinks she did nothing wrong...

I am still trying to recover from all the energy spent to bring my parents back from the edge sooooo if the weather permits hugs back at ya!

How thoughtless of me to assume that I am the only one on here with problems...it's just that you all seem so together and I seldom hear complaints.I have always been so tough and positive in my life and this all has caught me off-guard.I have always love our somewhat solitary lifestyle but now it has huge diadvantages.4 years ago we bought this property after living in the mountains ,off-grid at the top of primitive road that wasn't for the faint of heart.Outhouse and a night chamber pot in the winter months.The water heater was the wood stove,well you get the picture.It wasn't till we moved here (still rural but 6miles from Oroville and 10 from Tonasket),that I learned how to use a computer or a tv remote,appliance noises drove me insane.
All of this is no excuse I should be well educated on HCV by now but I did well for so ling that most of the time I actually forgot I had it.
Anyway rambling again.
Boceprevirgal I wish that I could share the abundance of produce and fruit available to us ,all organic and homegrown(one of  the man's other obsession is gardening.At least I have that I even makke organic Louisiana style hotsauce.
Thank you all for being there and being real.

  Thanks, Snow, and dont worry about me. You are inspiring me: our new rental has a large flat backyard, so I should learn how to take all these table scraps, turn them into compost, and start making a vegatable garden this early spring.
   Last early spring, I was on Tx, so I was afraid of getting my hands dirty,
but I did manage to do plant some beautiful daisy bushes (orange and gold) and a lavendar plant that just took off. Also some succulents and I collected many large and small stones, from the beach.
   This Hep C just sneaks up on us. I will  be praying for you, as I do everybody on here. Sometimes I get right down on my front stairs and pray for all of us, with many tears.  
    You are being really brave, and have gotten so much accomplished.
I would be so over-whelmed, if I were you. I know what you mean about people on here being organized~
   Have you made any progress with finding a dentist?  I think making a list, and then checking off your goals as you go, may help with the over-whelming part.

Ooooh, I am so not looking forward to oneof those, but it is recommended for all of us, at age 50 yrs.
  Go forward bravely!

I have to do it whether I want to or not.I guess the Prep is worse than the procedure(Diarreah (diarrhea) and cramping.Everyone else survives so..I will take it with the Grace of a Woman!(pretty good at that I am!)   More hugs on the wind.!

I had my first colonoscopy in July. The prep was hard for me. I got weak, shaky, and cold. But the procedure was easy. Go in, lie down, talk, listen, bye bye, and then it's over. No pain. Just tiredness for a day.
