in a galaxy right here. Wow. Looking back it seems not much has changed. Only it has. I’m now legally disabled. We own our home free and clear. Christopher will be 5 in a few days. I did in fact say 5 years old. “Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.”
My health hasn’t gotten any better since I last blogged. I had a tumor removed from my brain in August of 2011. I still haven’t seen a Rheumatoid specialist. None in my area will take Medicaid. Jon and I are still married. I’m still crazy, however, topamax seems to be helping me. My new therapist is very good as well. Tata for now. I’ll be back soon. I promise.
We’ve just been cleaning and getting the house ready for Spring. It’s been a little crazy because my mom is out of town in NC. She’s visiting her sister who has terminal lung cancer.
My dad’s sisters have been watching the baby while she’s out of town. So the schedule has been a bit odd. The baby has been a tad sick the last few days. I’m going to call the peds office tomorrow to see when they can get him in. I’m going to have them run a lead test just in case.
That’s it in a nutshell.
It’s been a crazy 4 days since I last posted. J went back to work on Monday and we’ve been busy everyday since. C had his 9 month checkup and he’s doing wonderful. 20lbs 10.5 oz. 28.5 inches long He’s going to be very tall.
While I was there I weighed myself; 380 lbs. I’ve lost another 6lbs in a month. I started at 396 so that’s 16lbs total. I’m still working out at least 4 times a week. This weekend I hope to get to the Y to swim some. I enjoy the water and it makes my body feel so good.
We’re having a hard time with bills, but then again so is everyone right now. It’s hard but we’ll get through it and we’ll be better and stronger in the end.
The last few days have been a blur. We’re slowly reclaiming our house from the chaos and negative energy. We’re literally working from the ground up.
There has been a setback with the progress of getting myself healthy. I got an appointment to see a rheumatoid specialist but they want $250 up front. TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY FUCKING DOLLARS!!!! Yeah, we don’t have that and won’t have it for a couple of years. I call the office back on Monday to see if I can get in without the money. If not, then I’m calling a social worker at the hospital. There has to be a way for me to go to the doctor. I have something wrong with me and I have every intention of finding out what.
The hubster and I went out on a date last night to a local pizza joint. It was fun and man did we have some great sex afterwards. We’ll never listen to Justin Timberlake in the same way ever again. /ohyeah
As far as my ‘workouts’ I’ve been doing crazy amounts of house work and errand running. So I’m not really behind it’s just not been structured exercise.
And that’s it, in a nut shell.
A change of eating habits. It sounds so much better than diet and to be honest it doesn’t feel like a diet. Now lets hope that it is good on my sugar.
The hubster and I have set up a ‘Chore Chart’ so that we can stay on top of things. I’m a visual thinker so having the chart reminds me of what I need to do it and when. It makes us much more accountable for our actions.
Today has been a good day! (Unlike yesterday, which I need to do a retro post about.)
