Just cannot get WELL, C.DIFF BACK AFTER ONLY 5 DAYS, broken collarbone and shoulder blade,, weeping Eczema spot after all almost well begins weeping again..am I hexed???

BETWEEN MY OWN ILLNESSES AND MY HOUSE DETERIORATING I feel CURSED, HEXED!!!


 I am sick and tired of getting "well" only to become ill again within a week! The (C.Diff or whatever) came back after 6 days of going away... I still cannot pinpoint what the hell is causing it. And the one tiny spot (after just about ALL of the weeping Eczema is gone) suddenly the top came off of it and it began slowly seEping AGAIN!!! As I said only son's pot, think honestly I am "cursed", hexed... or something that... I know that sounds almost insane not a usual "human issue" in health. 

But, to have SO MANY THINGS HAPPEN within a short time after Jim left in the wind back to Seattle, I have had nothing but grief and heartache... my Mom passed away, i lost my teeth and had to have dentures made, I fell and broke my hip and spent 5 weeks in inpatient rehab...lost both Tazzy and Bub's suddenly, got this C. Diff or WHATEVER THE HORRID STUFF IS, but it goes away and is back within weeks, broke my collarbone and shoulder blade, it seems it just continues on and on... I FEEL HE HAS SOME KIND OF HORRID GRIP ON ME EVEN FROM THE GRAVE! Hard to explain how MANY THING HAVE GONE WRONG WITH ME, AND THEN THE HOUSE... hot water leaks, then ruined laundry room with mold, toilet still need to be reseated, my lawn is horrible, and I can't get out and work on it as usual, too hot,, then all the illnesses etc, .... praying, praying praying yet iI feel hexed, cursed, punished for "something" and I have no clue what or why!🥲😢👎🔥💔☣️❓❓

 So Much to Do, to Say, To want to do, NEED to DO!!! Yet, the battle of it All goes on.. from COVID-& Variants to pseudo-gout, to THIS HOUSE falling Apart! Where are the plumbers, electricians, Handy Men & everyone when you REALLY NEED THEM! HELP!!


This is a couple of posts from Facebook I have posted & due to all of my own health issues especially with my Hands, Wrists, fingers - the RA Flares, the Pseudo-Gout and as it goes on.. I wanted to play catch up here a bit..


Oh Yes and INSANITY IN TEXAS WITH OUR WEATHER (and as it seems every place else in the Nation)


thy said on the news that ALL 50 TATES HAVE SOME FORM OF COVID - EXCEPT ANARTICA?? AND WE WONDER WHY...


Back to the house needing to be repaired! In am no good at making dumplings. They tend to be like "rubbery balls of mush" LOL! Honestly, after baking a small hen for Christmas rather than turkey or ham. Then having more chicken left over than I thought, all 3 of us I think are "tired of chicken"... I decided yesterday to go to something completely different. I did some fish portions, which were good, some regular fries, and a couple of onion rings. Then I made "Ranch dip/dressing" of my own, had yogurt, small orange jello with the cool whip inn it & Voila' something different... Even the fur-babies Bella and Peanut were thrilled... LOL!!! Well, the holidays are past, which seems crazy. The temps went from 80 degrees night before last to 25 degrees up in the day yesterday.. of course my poor plants on the front porch are beyond "freezer burned"... & that wind and wind chill plus the temps yesterday kept me from barely walking on the porch, it was SO BONE CHILLING COLD! Typical TX - 80 and shorts and in less than 3 hours 330 and headed down to 25. Thank goodness, I DID get bth the inside and outside of my A/C window unit covered up, got the water loose from the outside spickets, got the hummingbird feeder and my new bird feeder cleaned up, washed & put up for the winter. I am still working on the research for which "Tankless Water Heater to buy for the house QUICKLY!!!" Getting research and which "walk in shower" (WITHOUT DOORS JUST A SHOWER CURTAIN) that has to be done. I have got to get at least 1 set of rails for my front porch up. I just cannot carry things up and down even as "not steep" as those steps are in the front, they are danger to me and everyone. I thought at 1st I would do metal BUT, that would be HOT in the summer and freezing in the winter. Plus between rain and humidity that metal would be useless. SO, I thought I would use treated SMOOTH lumber and just stain it. The steps are concrete so those rails can be anchored into the concrete steps. I really only need ONE set. I use only the right hand side coming up and going down, so for now 1 set would be fine. I had forgotten but those ROTTEN WINDOWS IN MY LAST "BEDROOM" in the back have to go! No repair, they just need to be removed & I am going to put a couple of windows like my neighbors. Theirs are a bit wider, but shorter. Plus they are perfect in that area for where plants sit, and they will get the sun they need. I have a total of SIX big of the old windows that were "weighted" like most of the homes that are especially wooden are around here built in the 50's. But. the people that owned the house I bought it from must have not had good renters, the windows just were not propel managed, ... they have breaks in some of them, they tend to stay wet, where that part of the house is more shady and so forth. Plus, my neighbor and I are talking about letting him do the work (which is most of it) he can do. He has been doing all kinds of hand-man things from showers, to light fixtures, doors, and you name it for people here in town. So, he is good, he is very TALL! LOL! Actually most of the time he can stand on the floor and put a ceiling in without needing a ladder. By the way, I am STILL GOING TO SELL THIS HUGE SAUNA/TUB/JACUZZI/WATERFALL, RAINFALL, & YOU CAN EVEN ADD ANSWERING YOURB PHONE, IT HAS A STERO BUILT IN, TWO SHOWER HEADS AND THE RAINWATER FROM THE TOP.It can be taken apart all glass doors, and then set up again wherever someone may want to set it back up. I supposed you could take it and put it into the wall. I left mine on the legs, put tile under it so I could move it if I ever need needed to. A "walk in shower" will be PERFECT" for the pups and me. They can't climb into and out of the tub either. Not with their hips and legs. I am going to buy one of the already ones with all of the surround walls, get the bottom one, which will fit where my drain is, & will have PLENTY of room left for either adding more shelves in the bathroom, or adding more onto one side that goes into the closet of the bedroom, so I have ore walk in & storage space.




Glynda Cooke not yet. The issue with ALL of them s they are still either swamped from the blizzard last year OR some of them with COVID and other went to doing "contractor" type jobs, SO many of them don't do a "residential type job" like mine. I've called all of them that I used before and were very good and just about everyone went to doing contract work. I think with the housing boom they feel thy are making more money doing the larger jobs, like apartments, or a new residential section with more than one or two homes. Of course we have also had lots of new buildings & the downtown stuff, so no one is wanting to take on a job, which mine is NOT small! I intended to do the toilet of course, but i was going to do the walk-in shower, the tankless water heater, and a couple of other things so it is not like it is s tiny job. This COVID issue along with last years horrible blizzard really made a mess of things in this county. I would try someone like Lowe's or Home Depot. I know thy DO have some things they get professionals to come in and install things such as the water heaters, walk in showers etc. I think my best bet is to actually make a trip to those and look at the water heaters, showers etc... and ask questions. Plus find out what thy do, where they have installation that can be done. Calling won't work, not when I really need for them to HE TANKLESS WATER HEATER, AND THE WALK IN SHOWER, AND EVERYTHING THAT GOES WITH THEM. I got to thinking when I bought my kitchen appliances my fridge, stove etc. I went & picked them out and they brought them and took off the old ons and put in new ones... same way with my washer and dryer. They took the old ones away, and brought the new ones to put in, and that included some new piping that had to go in. Also, I have a separate breaker, it is still just a 125 not like the dryer 250, but it is with this huge tub I have now. So, I have a separate breaker the shower can be wired to, along with all of the lights, bath fan etc in the bathroom. I was wondering rather than have the new water heater put back in the old spot, it may be better to put it where the shower will be. I will have lots of room once this HUGE TUB of mine is gone! That reminds me and I will post more pics of it BUT IT IS FOR SALE!!!! And I paid almost 3,000.00 for it. And other than a couple of pieces that need to be ordered to replace where some "flaky" spots are on some of that looks like chrome, it is in perfect shape. But, I am going to ask GREAT GREAT DEAL LESS HONESTLY THAN IT IS WORTH.Now one like mine with everything are way over 4,000.00 almost 5,000.00. It comes apart easily, the glass is heavy but the bottom of the tub with all the jets, jacuzzi etc is also. Yet, we installed it ourselves back then. When it is gone I will have loads of room for the walk in shower and probably either cabinets or another closet.

Disability filing


I REALIZE DUE TO COVID, THE FURTHER ISSUES OF THE PANDEMIC, THEN EVEN WORSE, THE DIFFERENT VARIANTS that are following, I haven't been able to keep up with a couple of my groups that are extremely important! One of them is this one on Medicare, Medicaid & all that goes with these vital parts of our nation and people! years from now our kids, grandkids, and great great great grandkids, will not be able to have a "retirement" because all of the money for these have been wasted.... SO ANY OF YOU THAT HAVE INFORMATION, ARTICLES, HAVE AN OPINIONS, or know things that are coming through crucial to especially Social Security and MEDICARE!!!... Send me a message with the information so I can "vet" it & get the word out to so many... more ad more I continue to see people trying to file and get their total disability and it is taking not months but YEARS LIKE 2, 3 YARS TO GET IT APPROVED! that is after doctors and doctors, medical records sometimes even needing to be 12 r more years old,, hospital records and so forth.. things we may have to even "pay for" (not so much anymore they are in most hospital , clinics etc allowing people one copy of their medical record without having to pay for it. A HUGE PLUS IS NOW MANY OF OUR HOSPiTAL, CLINIC ETC HAVE "PATIENT PORTALS" where all of your information on visits, medications, dates, times. vaccines, are in that portal. f you sign up, you can get your records, see them even print them, make changes to your phone numbers and so forth without having to go through red tape to get it done... I WENT THROUGH 1 FILINF, WAS DENIED, WHICH MOST ARE the 1st TIME, I filed again MYSELF, the 2nd time, and was denied, so that is when I went to the Dept. of Human Services in the state I was living in at that time, and my caseworker there had a list of GOOD "lawyers who specialized" in nothing but "Disability cases"... he took mybcase after I talked wth him on the phone for a bit, and since I already had MOUNDS OD PAPERWORK where I had been filing, I sent all of it to his Assistant. Boy did she ever appreciate seeing how much of the "leg work" I had already done for her... doctors notes, letter, medical records, operative reports, ER records, times, dates, everything I could get my ads on, I had copies of also and sent it all to her. It took months for her to sort through and then she would call me and ask me about certain things that I could answer... and ALL THEY ASKED ME FOR WAS, a $200.00 case file money that went into an escrow acct for me. they used it i they had to pay for further records, phone calls, or anything they may get to help my case. I was to go through the disability judge once all of my paperwork, and my lawyers and paperwork was all ready. I filed myself the 1st time in 2003. Then I filed a 2nd time in late 2004. By the time we heard that my case was ready to goin front of the judge, it was 2005. I went in front of the judge with my lawyers assistant, and 3 other people, a physician who had been in charge of going through my medical records, a "psychologist" whi went through all of the mental evaluations they did on me during all of this & a gentleman who was there to make sure both sides were impartial & all was in order. I did not get an answer that day, which was disappointing.. I thought I would get a determination that day BUT it was about 6 weeks later I got an official letter from the judge telling me I WAS APPROVED!, why he judged my case approved etc. He gave details of what I would get etc, and also how far back my disability started. They began mine back in 2004.

And more about COVID, Illnesses and the list goes on..

What has Happened to Our Society & the Control Over Pain Management with INTERFERENCE FROM CONTROL from Govermental Entities!?

 It's not often that I REALLY GET FROM FRUSTRATED TO PLAIN MAD AS HECK with any of my doctor's! But;. as MANY of us that are "chronic Pain patients" know, there is a "rotten egg" in the basket between pain specialists, the FDA, the CDC... and so forth, also the Senate and House.... This has been going on for years, the old thing about "we are all "addicts", and really don't ned the pain meds... and the old story continues. I have heard so many horribly SAD stories abut how p atients have had their meds suddenly without cause jerked away from them, doctors up and moving, and so forth BUT!!! there is definitely ANOTHER SIDE TO THE STORY! That is the "home made meth, the "so-called "Fentaynal patches" that are NOT real from a Pharma co, people mixing cold meds, or all kinds of concoctions, and selling them to people, AND because MANY IF OUR SPECIALISTS THAT ARE LEGITIMATE (MY DOCTOR HAS BEEN IN THE NAVY AS A DOCTOR FOR MNY YEARS, THEN SPENT ANOTHER 22 PLUS YEARS IN SPECIALIZING IN PAI MANAGEMENT! I've beenseeing him for over 12 years and inf act really the ONLY "pain doctor" I have ever seen. I "trusted" him and He "trusted" me... so we had a great "patient/doctor relationship that I NEVER QUESTIONED... We went througha couple of things when i 1st got my pain pump which the 1st one was over 10 YEARS ago, that one went haywire after about 5 years to the date, so he had to replace it, & that WAS ALMOST 6 YEARS AGO, THIS COMNG OCTOBER OR SO. I als always had a very small amount of "oral meds" I kept from him, so in case the pump went out or something happened that I quickly needed more meds for some reason, I had a few pills to carry me through, like when the 1st pump went out. Itwas on a Friday NIGHT of all times and a "holiday weekend" s the pump was "beeping" every 10 minutes, and I could not turn it off... I could decrease the sound some thank goodness but I could not completely all the way. So, it was like from Friday night till the following Tuesday before I could even speak to his office. What irks me though, is the pump was "gone and I had to have out completely replaced. So, that week i had to have an outpatient surgery to take it out & put a new one in. But it was a day procedure & I went home that afternoon... THEY WERE (THE COMPANY) WAS SUPPOSED TO TELL ME "WHY IT WENT OUT" LIKE IT DID WHICH WAS VERY UNUSUAL, BUT I REALLY NEVER GOT A STRAIGHT ANSWER... THE point is I "caught" something very "odd" about 6 months ago about my doctor, and his office... things were strange, they no longer got the medication filled & sent to me from a pharmacy in Dallas, which they had done for years. So, I had to call them, they had to physically send me a script, I had to take here to my local pharmacy... so it took longer, with al of the cal, the send to me which the mail is so slow now, then the pharamacy may or may NOT have the meds ... and then suddenly my doctor MOVES FROM AN OFFICE HE JUST A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO BOUGHT AND REMODELED! It was like he didn't tell us anything, just moves, sends out a post card with a "strange new address on it"... which was horrible to find! Then suddenly all of the employees almost were different. After years some of them suddenly were gone ... and the ONE HEAD WOMAN I COULD CALL & leave a message and she would call me I ALWAYS LEFT A MESSAGE FOR AND and she always returned my calls, just stopped calling me back. t was just nuts. Then all of a sudden my doctor for no reason, just in a "chicken" move "halved" my medication! BUT rather than explain it, he kind of just mumbled a few words that was not like him and more or less, made the "assistant" take the heat for the sudden change. So, I go in yesterday after driving in pouring rain, water over the road, to get my refill for my pump... and now he is ONLY IN THE OFFICE on Wednesdays! So, if my pump n a fill on a Friday, I either have it refilled days EARLY or I take a chance and wait an extra 5 or 6 days & hope it does not get too low that it beeps again... so I go in make a darned horrible weather trip & find out (due to their own equipment that is flawed and I hłd know it & told them many times) I had enough medication in the pump to last me at least another 7 days. So I go in and he pulls out enough (as always) that I could have waited another 5 to 7 days and not have to come in earlier than necessary. But. he "jumps" me and says "You are not using the meds you have" & I said wait a minute this had been a "flaw" from day one. It happens every time we fill it. It "says to come in on like the 15th of a month" BUT when he pulls i out it is NT my fault. If they had equipment correct it should have told me to wait and use up more of what was in there. I HATED THAT TRIP YESTERDAY!! HAD I KNOWN I could have waited till Next "week" in better weather before making that dreadful trip u there! As He is waking out & that was another thing 'HE ALWAYS CLOSES A DOOR WHEN HE COMES IN TO SEE A PATIENT! YESTERDAY HE WALKED IN LEFT THE DOOR STANDING WIDE OPEN WHERE EVERYONE COULD HEAR & SEE ALL GOING ON IN MY ROOM! The nurse got up and had to come shut to door... he was just going to leave it wide open! Then he said several things that sounded "off".... and when he began to leave the room, I asked him about my refill for my meds and he said "I a



























































































































































































m no longer giving that to you" you don't need them"... AFTER 10 YEARS & NOW SUDDENLY I DON'T NEED THEM???!!! I HAD TO LITERALLY GET UP AND LEAVE THAT OFFICE BEFORE I TOTALLY SOUNDED OFF WITH THE DOOR OPEN!!! THEN I LEAVE, PULL INTO A PARKING LOT DOWN THE ATREET TO DOUBLE CHECK MY PUMP REFILL & HE HAD CHANGED IT WITHOUT EVEN TELLING ME, WITHOUT DISCUSSING Anything..... NEVER, NEVER EVER HAVE I HAD THAT MAN ACT LIKE THAT! Had the weather not been so bad still and I saw there was another wreck , then water over the road... I would have turned around & went back to ask him what his issues are! BUT, when I left the waiting room was FULL, packed!!! Late, weather bad, I-30 had water over it in places, so I just wanted to get SAFELY back HOME. I DID LEAVE A MESSAGE WHILE I WAS STOPPED THAT TOLD HIM I WOULD BE WAAB ANSWER, MY PUMP ADJUSTED TO BE FILLED CORRECTLY & I HAD BETTER HAVE a CALL for an appt NEXT WED! because if they don not call me I AM coming anyway & will just in the waiting room until he fixes his Mistake! NOW I MORE UNDERSTAND WHY CHRONIC PAI PEOPLE, ,EVEN CANCER PATIENTS ARE TERRIFIED THEY WILL NOT GET ANY MEDICATION FOR PAIN RELEF! I am also going to send an email to our HOUSE and SENATE from our state to let them know just how horrified people are that are in chronic pain. They fear having to live a life to This should NOT be a "issue involving political gains etc"... it should be about physicians & their personal patients severe pain while the government tells our DOCTORS HOW TO TREAT PATIENTS!! I want to say "don't get ,e started BUT after what I went through this week already has me way than just started. I am to the boiling point not for just myself but FOR SO MANY severely ill patients that causes intractable & unrelenting pain. Nw they can no longer depend on their own physicians because f "governmental interference".... I've said for years, you give some of these up in the "world of government" a week of severe and intractable pain & they would be rushing to ER screaming in pain, begging for anything to help rid them of the NIGHTMARE THEY WERE IN.
