This so freeing!
The ability to write whatever I care to!
Now that that is out of the way…
Allow me to think about what I want to say…
No rush here…
How would it be if we discussed what has been going on since we have been reopened?
You know the government?
All the people who held us hostage for sixteen days felt they needed a rest.
Yep, the house and the senate took a big warranted vacation for all their hard work they felt that they deserved it and of course with pay!
Unfortunately, they will be back on Tuesday, so I have been told… I suppose sixteen on four off is that how it works?
Now does this seem right, they furloughed 800,000 people for sixteen days without pay and they think that this is saving us money, but in reality costs us all 24 billion dollars and one million additional jobs?
Oh well, what’s done is done, but then they reward themselves for this act of internal terrorism?
I just don’t get it, do you?
Any-who, back to me …
Today, I had made an appointment under duress to have a nurse come out from Shared Solutions the support company for my Copaxone that is my daily injectable medication for my Multiple Sclerosis. It’s my fault I suppose; I have been on the stuff for just over three years this past July16th.
And I have given myself the injections for all these years and then about two weeks ago I had two injection site issues, one was some bruising on my right thigh and the other was a bit of bleeding, more than usual on my left arm.
So I called when I already actually had figured out the problem; the depth of the automatic injector had to be changed either due to weight loss or just tightening of my skin in those locations due more than likely to my consistent exercising program. And I did adjust it and had no issues after, and foolishly called for validation of what I had done to correct the problem.
Since now they are saying that they should send a nurse out to help me learn the proper way to inject, since I had, had a problem, after doing it for more than THREE YEARS?!I said I don’t think so, since when I adjusted it was fine.
But they called the nurse and she called me to make an appointment and again I said I don’t think that I have a problem anymore and I don’t need you to come over, but she insisted that I did, since I DID have a problem and shamed me into making an appointment at her convenience, not mine.
You see, she works another job all week and wanted to come here at our dinner time and so I said no, then she offered a Saturday and I said late morning and she agreed to this Saturday, today at eleven a.m.
But during the week she called again and said that she would have to make it next week in the evening and I said, no, and again tried to tell her that I didn’t need her to come at all that I have no problem! She again tried to bully me into an appointment I can come on this Saturday, meaning today, but at one p.m.! I ridiculously said, okay, since she would not listen to me saying NO!
But the more I thought about it the more I realized that I did not need her to come to show me anything since I have NO problem with my self injections!
So I called both of the numbers she had given to me that say her name and on the home one her husbands as well and on her cells just hers’ and told her that she was CANCELLED and that it was me with my phone number to verify it was me! I did this at ten A.M. this morning!
Fast forward to one fifty P.M. today she showed up at our home, I asked Hubby to answer the door and he went outside to tell her that she had been cancelled on both of her phone lines and he came back in the house and left her standing out there, still talking ... Hubby reported back that she said that she had not received either voice mail!
Hubby was right there when I called her and as I said they both said her name, ‘Rene’ and the one with her husband said his as well with their last name!
Persistence, I do usually admire in people, but not when it is this ridiculous!
What would you have done, really?
Last Saturday night, my glucose was up to 199, two hours after eating and so I still have insulin in the house/frig that is good till next year 11/14 and so I took what my neuro said on her list/sheet from when I had to take while on the IV steroids of 1000MG. Solu Medrol for those last three days in April, my fourth time, 2 units with the syringe I still have several left thankfully.
I seem to feel rather yucky with weird headaches and tummy aches when my glucose fluctuates like that, it’s been all over the map… and yes, since the scare a week ago I have been testing more often, the highest its been since was 170, but I did nothing that time. It has not been below 115 hanging out around 139 or so…. What would you do? I will be seeing my GP in early December after my next blood work the week before.
On that note of what’s up with me, allow me to be the very first to wish you a very happy good night and ask you kindly to count all your blessings and share all your overages with you know who and we will too!
And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
