I feel so good...well, my rn home health care nurse came in today, & asked me how I feel, & I said "if I felt any better, I'd be twins" that's exactly WHY I wanted prednisone!!
that link goes to one of the funniest videos I EVER saw!!
I' m making a huge attempt at humor lately...because all I'm doing is laughing, anyway...
My home health people are connecting me with everybody I need in my life right now...I never even knew that there are "transport services" to take me to any doctor's appointment. They come here & come in & help me get in my scooter or wheelchair, all the people I've had as drivers are very nice & helpful...they drive a van with a lift on it, & they take me to the dr's office, then they go & do any other running around they have, & I call when I'm ready to get picked up! Having a chronic illness, and having to depend on others for everything is a huge wake-up call for somebody that never, ne-vah, ever wanted help from anyone! I remember some of my first words were "No! I do it MYSELF!!" ...somebody up in heaven is laughing every time you think that...
I was talking to Bro last week, & I remembered how Mom always was encouraging me to read & write...I remember one of the first stories I ever wrote...it was a scary story...I was about 8, and I was writing about how to make the best "witches brew", & I specifically remember one line I wrote. It was in the ingredients list...some bones, not old dried-up bones, fresh, bloody ones'....gaaahhhh...can you even imagine what my Mom had to have thought?? She handled it well, though...explained how there were veins & arteries, and, no, your bones weren't just floating in a "bag of blood"...that right there explains a phrase that Mom used when she wrote her grandmother's book for Chief..."Tiffany, your mom always had such an indomitable spirit."
Okay, I'm tired...have a lot more funny stuff that's been happening lately, but I'll get to it...
