Another shot taken.
I'm sleepy today. I've been sleepy every day for a week or so now.
I keep needing naps!
Hope its not a bad sign...tho I have been extra busy making Christmas presents so maybe I'm just tired from that! LOL

Now I Wait

Phew that was a busy, busy week!
Tues. afternoon our appt. at disability. Wed. morning an appt. with Dr. to sign my papers.
Thurs. give the Dr. my portion of the papers. All put in envelope and I hope mailed on Fri. like they told me it would be. And NOW I wait to see if I am going to get help.
I HOPE it is a yes and it doesn't take 6 months like they say it can.
I have had a lot of stress and I'm hoping it is done for awhile now! I napped almost every day this week! I've also had headaches a lot. :(
Trying not to worry and just to accept that what will be, will be but I worry.
So I take a deep breath. AND I believe.

Tuesday

Tuesday hubby and I have an appointment...FINALLY.
I've only been waiting two and a half months now. :S
I didn't want to even do it. I tried to avoid it as long as possible but, the facts are the facts.
I need help.
So, cross fingers the appt. goes well and everything goes forward for me to receive disability help.
My medications just get more and more added trying to keep me in line and more and more expensive. Also, more dosages of insulin, and sooner or later I will also have to deal with dialysis of some sort.
I am trying hard not to be scared and worry about what's coming later.
What will be, will be.
I will face my decisions when they come and in the meantime try to stay positive and keep working on the things that I CAN do. No matter how difficult, no matter how frustrating, no matter how depressing, no matter whether or not I want to give up or not....just KEEP ON!
KEEP trying.

But...it is done for another 3 weeks! ;)

Proper Menu

It's been a long time since I could work on proper menus for the week because we ran into some money issues from hubby's lack of work back in August and got behind.
We're still not caught up. I HAVE applied for disability and I'm waiting for an appointment so I can
actually send the information and get my doctor to sign for me.
If I don't get my appointment soon I have an appointment next week with a social worker who will advocate for me and try to hurry the process.
It was hard enough to admit and accept and ASK for help in the first place and what I get is hassle and SLOW process? I'm frustrated for sure. I NEED the help and if I don't get it before hubby gets laid off for the year I won't get it at all. :(
At least I know my diabetic nurse can help me with insulin in case of emergency. Thank GOD for that!
I DON'T want to know what happens when I stop taking it!!
Anyway, from now on I'm just going to keep track of what I'm eating no matter how crappy it is.
I will do the best I can and n the meantime hope for better than this.
