Welcome to my world. It has been my turn for many moons. I am getting used to it. There is a good side to everything. You just have to hunt for it though.

I don't have a hunting license. Dang!

I think the answer to this is to keep moving.

Well, I just got back from seeing my doctor. He is very happy about the final result from my gall bladder episode. And I also got my report on my Cholesterol levels. It was an excellent report, and according to the results, everything is normal. One less thing to worry about.

So now I should eat something. Egg salad sounds good. A little onion along with some finely diced celery will make it perfect. A cup of coffee will make the finishing touch.

Glad to hear you're going to live, Addie.

"A body in motion STAYS in motion." Yup, got that. It's just that I haven't so much as pulled a weed all summer and the muscles I used must be ones that aren't used for lifting, walking, etc. Not much will help those muscles hiding in the flabby upper thigh area until the ache goes away. Besides that, I have a hip that gives me "issues". My parents each had arthritis; my Dad ended up needing both back surgery and a hip replacement. I'm sure it's just a matter of time before I need it replaced. I just have to tough it out and get the gardens all prettied before we put the house up for sale so that IF I need surgery I'm back home in OH. Cleveland Clinic is one of the finest hospitals in the world. In fact, they ARE one of the hospitals "in the world". They used to get so many rich Middle Eastern sheikhs in for surgeries that they build a hospital in Abu Dhabi!

Before I Was A Mom

I had finished two loads of laundry and was going through my files looking for something. I found this. It was sent to me a number of years back. I thought the mothers and also fathers would appreciate it.

Before I Was A Mom

Before I Was A Mom
I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I Was A Mom
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed On.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I Was A Mom
I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do their tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I Was A Mom
I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put her down.'
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I Was A Mom
I didn't know the feeling of having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I Was A Mom
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every ten minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never knew the warmth, the joy, the love, the heartache, the wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much, before I was a Mom.

I don't know who wrote it. There is no name on it.

He wouldn't let me answer his questions and basically said that I was not suffering from stroke symptoms and should take more of my antidepressants. We are going with the recommendations of the doctor at OUR hospital and taking it to my GP. I got so stressed that I almost had another mini-stroke that day.

Right now I am up because I can't sleep, even though I am exhausted all the time.

I'm so sorry to hear that, LP. I've only had one doctor who was that arrogant and I quit seeing him pretty quickly. Can you see a different neurologist? Sometimes it takes seeing more than one to find someone who is a good fit for you.

Have you asked your GP about a sleep aid? Getting enough sleep is so important to good health.

Oh no! That's terrible. (((Hugs)))

I doubt you have the energy to deal with reporting him, but could your husband? That is totally unacceptable behaviour from a doctor. He is endangering you. He is a danger to other patients as well. Does he think the doctors at the OR are incapable of diagnosing a stroke correctly?

How old is this guy? Is it possible that he doesn't believe there is such a thing as a TIA? I know that doctors refused to believe my mother when she told them she was having "mini-strokes", back in the 70s. They claimed there was no such thing. But, we know better now.

CG,
You sound just like me a few weeks ago.The Chiropractor didn't help.My body is too small to be put on one of those rolling tables.5 minutes with that at the lowest setting that party was so over! I got off of it.

This product has helped me tremendously.I no longer go see the Chiropractor.After 2 sessions my back spasms were over.My legs felt so much better as well.

Gotta check it out.Highly recommend it.
P.S. You can roll over and get those upper thighs.

Thanks for the suggestion, Munky. I do have a massaging heating pad - never thought to use it. My biggest problem is that I feel the muscles the first time I put them to work after not using that particular muscle group. Sunday was rough, yesterday was better - then I spent three hour on my feet playing in the kitchen. The legs were tired, but not sore. By today I was running up and down the steps like I was...64. I can run downhill faster than up!

What I really need to do is go out and buy a new pair of shoes. I hate clothes shopping, especially shoe shopping. But my old tennis shoes ARE old. Oddly enough, my feet and legs feel the best when I wear my summer flip-flops, a thicker-soled, contoured version. Himself says that's a prime indicator that we should move to FL! Nope, nope, nope.
