The second month in 2019 and not much has changed in my life. I made two roasters full of Holopchi the other day. They turned out really well, even if I say so myself. However, the day after I made them, I slept for almost 24 hours. I should be grateful that I was able to make them.
January was a month of temperature and barometric pressure fluctuations. Along with that came pain, horrific, debilitating pain. It often amazes me that I manage to plug along day after day without too many complaints. I do, however, carry anger inside, anger against the doctors who want to make it their goal in life to take away any form of pain control that allows me to survive.
As I mentioned in a previous blog entry, my family doctor sent me to a rheumatologist in November 2018. I asked for and received the report that she sent to my family doctor after my appointment. She basically attributed my pain in the mornings as merely stiffness and made the suggestion all I needed was an exercise to deal with this stiffness. After much deliberation, my husband and I decided that this could not stand as the truth in my medical records. We wrote a letter to both the rheumatologist and my family doctor reporting the falsehoods in her report. My end of February appointment with my family doctor should be an interesting meeting. I have been penalized before when trying to set the record straight with a doctor so who knows what will happen. Just another stressor in my life.
Tomorrow afternoon, my sister and cousin will be coming to my house for an overdue visit. The three of us try to get together once a month. Going through some of my mom’s papers that I had not had the energy to go through before this I found a letter written by my cousin’s grandmother. It was written in the Gothic script. My husband was able to translate it into English for her.
During the month of January, I managed to set up an online store selling collectibles, and art using my prints and watercolours. The store URL is Luella’s Originals. Check it out.
Well, it is time to try to sleep. Hope you all will have a pain free sleep.
