I just wanted to take a few minutes to update all of you on how things are going now. The Zoloft is working pretty good. And my Physiciatrist said I could take an extra Klonopin for anxiety or worse depression. And our IM Dr. said he can't take me off any of my meds he has me on. Mentally I am having a few more good days. As for the pain it is worse. In fact when I saw my Physiciatrist he said I should use my scooter more than my walker to save some energy. He recommended a book that will help Mike and in safety, understanding, ADA for ramps for my scooter. We just can't afford to buy a new ramp. I also got a pamplet on all ADA requirements and measurements. So actually we don't need as long a ramp as he thought and I will not have to change anything in my garden. And the ramp will not be in the middle of the walkway that goes through our garden to the 2 cottages behind us.
My hubby Mike had an appt. with our IM Dr; and he was prescrbed Klonopin also. And was referred to Physiciatrist for his anxiety and depression he has had since we have been married. He also has been referred to see and Orthopedic Surgeon for his knees ( No Cartilage in knees). And on 10-29-09 Thursday he is going for some tests, Endoscopy & Signoscopy . I need to find away to get us to the hospital and back home because our car is broken. The good news is he Klonopin is helping his mood, and he is calmer and more like the young man I married. I feel bad he is in so much pain from his knees. Please keep Mike & I in your prayers. He will see his Social Worker Nov. 3rd. I go see my new one on Nov.10th.
We are really working on living with our medical issues together. We are doiing better everyday so far. I just can't seem to pace myself. Any suggestions? I start doing 1 chore and then end up doing more house cleaning. I am trying to do only one big chore a day, that is what my Home Health Care Physical Therapist told me to do. If I do laundry, she said that is it for the dayl boy this not easy. I am the kind of person who just wants to get ii all done.
Doctors are telling me I need to save my energy, sleep, take naps rest. I am really trying. It is my fault that I am is so much pain and exhausted. So starting tomorrow I seriously am going to work on pacing myself.
I am trying to get on MH everyday, because I miss you all. I am here if anyone needs to talk or visit. At the moment we are just taking our days minute by minute, day by day. Mike knows that there are days he needs to help me more because I just can't do anything or barely use my can or walker in the house. I may have use my power scooter inside. God will be there for us I just need to quit closing the door on him and all of you. I need you and I need to be there for anyone who needs help. It helps me if I can help out also. I want to come back I am so lonely without you. I am emotionally better so what do you say?
I do have a question has anyone else with Fibro. have had trouble focusing with their eyes. By the middle of the day and at night is very hard to focus, everything blurry. I just got new glasses.
Okay my MH friends & family I need to get into bed. Hope all of you sleep well:) I will check in with you tomorrow or Monday.
Hugs to all.
