    I really messed up my medical issues yesterday. My lower back has bulging discs, lumbar stenosis, sciatica and so on. I was hurrying to get to the refrigerator and Badcat was hurrying to get out of his paper bag. I tripped over him, flew up then crashed down. Oh, I hurt.
    And, poor me, I'm having some miserable trouble in my mouth --- So I'm taking some miserable Amoxicillin that is so hard on my stomach I have to take a probiotic with it, then go to the endodontist (sp?) . I'm tired

    Clouds I doubt your medical issues are boring and as far as I can recall I am not sure exactly what those are but I am interested. I remember when we use to do check ins for the new people and would do a quick synopsis on our history so they would know they are not alone.

    Jingle! Good Lord I hope you are okay. I tell ya sometimes they wander under foot and there is no stopping it once it happens, it's like a horrible comedy of errors. My Bella likes to race ahead of ya then lay down right in front of ya where if ya don't take an extra big step she's applesauce or you are down.

    Been a while I am glad to see some one finally posted. I also noticed that more forums were posted in since I was here last. I hate the thought of this site sinking.

    Having some funky sleep patterns lately. Waking at 4 or 5 and getting up instead of laying back down then napping, sometimes, in the afternoon. Bella spends her nights alone with the run of the house and as soon as I get back from my early morning trip to the bathroom she is chewing and meowing at my bedroom door. Not conducive to sleeping. Changing my night time meds. After much trial and error I have discovered that of all the ways to consume MMJ smoking is a fantastic way to help me sleep. medibles just aren't strong enough. I have to eat two and most caregivers try to give ya a little brownie or something and tell me to cut it in half. They don't know my tolerance levels and some times it just isn't as good as they think. those who take a lot of meds and have a history with drugs tend to have a higher tolerance level to some meds. Like a Norco does nothing for me but a Percocet xr works great. If I take a Norco I have to take two but not with the percs. Medibles are just too expensive. For new inexperienced people these are perfect. Those who have a lower tolerance can eat them sparingly.

    Well the beginning of my dream to foster dogs is about to come to fruition. I have the applications and two rescues that I am going to apply at. They're so desperate for fosters it is sad. I've already been in contact with a few and they are just waiting for me to make it official. Now that I am so close i am getting cold feet. What if it is too much for me. What if my disabilities make it hard to do this thing and I have to stop. I wish I had a helper, well I kind of do and he knows I am going to foster. Cold Feet hell I'm scared to death. I have such a terrible history of starting things but not finishing for whatever reason comes up. I am supposed to talk to one of the groups leaders and do a telephone application so I don't have to worry about sending it in or delivering it.

    Going to cancel my homebound library services. now that my leg is healed and my heart attack stuff is almost over and i have transportation I need to get out more and the library use to be one of my favorite places to go.

    Cardio appt today. I get the results of all my tests but he doesn't know that I already know them. I also want to see about getting off of some of these heart meds. I look forward to it. I need to call and reschedule the appts I had to miss due to my leg and my meds and my heart. Pain management is one of them. Back injections soon. I can't wait.

    I take such a ridiculous amount of medication my death certificate is going to list renal failure as cause of death. I have had so many caregivers and patients tell me that they used MMJ to get of their meds except for what they considered necessary like thyroid meds. I am scared to death to try it. Mostly psych meds and now heart meds. I wish I had a true MMJ specialist to help me titrate down using MMJ. The withdrawals terrify me. I hate being suicidal. Maybe I could Craigslist it lol.

    I get the back injections about every 3 months. For me they are miracle drugs I really love those things. Here's hoping they work so well for you.

    Jeannie, I'm so sorry about your ex. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

    I'm weaning myself off one of my anti-depression meds. At first the withdrawals were horrible but it got easier as I dropped more pills. I'm still on one because it's suppose to help with weight loss and smoking. This was done at no thanks to my pysch nurse. She gave me no instructions how to withdrawal from the med. I had to research how to withdrawal myself. Everything is going good. Everyone things I'm going to go back to where I was three years ago. I have no fear of it.

    My daughter might be moving back to Minnesota well actually to Wisconsin. I just hope everything goes right with their inspections. It would be nice to be able to see my granddaughters.
    Take care,
    Dawn

    I have a lot to say. 10 inches of snow!!!! What happened to the groundhog's prediction. He stated 6 weeks of winter was left. We are now at
    least eight weeks out from that. WTH......

    I'm suppose to go camping in 3 weeks. This has to stop. Also, where is the spring rains bring May flowers. I think it's going to be June flowers springing up.

    OK rant over for now. I need to go clear snow off the driveway and then wait for the plows. I know I said rant over but I tried to go out last night and I should of had my ice skates on.
    Take care,
    Dawn

    Krikey Dawn ten inches! I do not envy you. I am already disgusted with this dusting we keep getting every night. I wake to snow by the end of the day it is gone.

    Another gray day though what do I expect in spring in Michigan lol. Will be warming up a bit soon and I will be more inclined to be out getting the yard ready. Cleaning the patio.

    I have sort of forgiven the neighbors and their dog. I went over there to meet the dog that killed Brody and sadly she is a sweet heart. I can talk to them but it is not without a tight feeling in my chest as though I am going to start crying any minute. I don't want to forgive them, I don't want to be friends with them. I want to be mad at them and for them to pay. But that is just not me. I still cry about it, I have never lost a dog before. It is a sadness that is between losing my mother and losing our Sweetpea.

    I have withdrawn Jared from the K12 program, he was failing miserablly. Both our faults. He wants to go back to school. Well it is called the Academy in our school district. Attend 2-3 days a week and the rest is done on computer at home.

    I didn't know what I was getting myself into with home online learning. I was his learning coach and my job was to make sure he stayed on task 6 hours everyday. Teachers and staff texting me at least 6-8 a day. It was an incredible stressor. Lots of tears and frustration on both sides. I got tired of the fight. Think that the stress contributed to the stress the contributed to my heart attack. So after spring break this week he wants to physically attend the required two to three classes a week though he qualifies for homebound under his anxiety and encopresis label. The program is a dual program it lets students work at their own pace so if a child is falling behind or is ahead of the rest of the class they have a program they can join to help them succeed. The head of the program is very cool and his students love him. Probably cause he loves his students and it shows.

    Posted some stuff under my pity party in Depression. Planned to go out today but checked my account and there just aren't enough funds. Gas has gone up. Easter prices they will slowly work their way back down.

    I am going to meet my first possible foster tomorrow. Little pitty mix. Named Panda, he is white with two big black circles around his eyes. He is adorable. If he does well with my Dash and Bella I will be able to foster him until he gets adopted and he already has people looking to possibly adopt him. He will be vetted first and neutered. The rescue pays for everything. He is being rescued from an owner who keeps him chained up behind his trailer so he doesn't even have to look at him. The rescue has been keeping straw in his doghouse, food in his belly and off the giant chain he had around his neck and gave him a proper collar and tie out, for over a year. Owner wants a fee for them rescuing him if you can believe that. A lousy $40 for his year of taking care of the dog. Stupid people.

    I am excited. Have been getting the house in order and digging out all of the pet supplies I have collected over the years. Quite a bit. I don't know if this is a double or not. I logged in and it said I had saved content so I just chose it and finished the post lol.

    I am so bummed that there are so few here and so few forums running.

    All I have to say is that I feel like I'm in a snow globe. 17 inches of snow from saturday to sunday. I'm done with this weather.

    This is not helping my depression. Going on day 4 without leaving the house.

    Chris, how exciting about getting a foster dog. I would have a hard time giving them up.
