Well it seems that with work I am more prone to getting the colds..Except I got a nasty flu bug. That hung around for 30 plus days. Then I finally recover from that to end up waking up one morning to have problems with my left leg from the thigh down. The foot possibly has a planters cyst. The outer side of the ankle is sore; the bone from ankle to knee feels like its scraping the knee joint. The knee of course doesnt want to work; It either locks up or gives out; hurts to straighten it out or to bend; do the hop skip and hobble when getting up on it. Plus the pain pills either work or knock me out. So go figure I am pretty much laid up in bed. No one else who is here in the house wants to clean up or whatever. So its driving me up the proverbial wall with the cleaning waiting to be done. Nor does anyone want to help me with walking the dogs. So if I get surgery done on the foot who is going to do what? This is what I have been dealing with. Plus cant find my meter. Ugh! So taking a pain pill to get the work done. If I dont plant my face on to the floor while doing this I will be a happy camper. Otherwise, love my job. Just need more hours or another job to make the money to pay the bills. Also noticed there is a Diabetic Connect on Facebook that doesnt hardly get much notice. I dont know why though. So I am hoping all my friends on here are ok as can be expected right? LOL That life is doing ok for all of you. So please forgive this Lady for the curves Life has been throwing me. I pray for all of you daily! Hugs

Right now two idiots cause they have to stay here according to the law. Both have problems of their own from being stupid with the local cops. FIL is in the hospital from A-Fib of the heart; 20 pound weight loss and severe case of the gout in the feet. Otherwise, its just me for the most part. No diagnosis yet other than the word degenerative! Ortho doctor just stuck a needle with maybe cortisone in it. Nothing else. Walking with a cane and foot wrapped up in an Ace bandage although the 2nd ER doctor said to take it off. I did but the pain intensified. Pain meds aka tramadols 50 mg dont work at all. Just keep me awake and in lots of pain. I have dont heat/cold treatments and etc nothing works. Up four or more times a night and I have to be up by 5 a.m. for work. Plus house showing the repairs I need before next winter. Plus got to get a job for the summer. Ugh! Otherwise sos! Hugs

Well You can choose not to provide them an address for the law. However since they are there you might consider using that to get them to do the repairs etc… or lose the ability to call your house a home for their probation officers

Yep sounds like a plan…only one is doing anything but the other doesnt do nada. FIL is home but now is being an arse about eating which he needs to do so he doesnt die which i think he wants too.:(

But if it starts out yucky now, it can only get better. If I lived close I would walk your dogs for you. I wish I could have a dog. I have 3 cats. I found Connect thru facebook. Every one I know who has had a cold has kept it forever. so you are right on course for that. I am sorry I know how bad knee problems can hurt. Lost meter ? lol. I did that for 2 months. Not a good thing. It will show up. Sending hugs and prayers.

Hang in there! Once you get that knee fixed, start kicking butt and taking names! I'm so sorry to hear that no one seems to want to help out. Kind of know that feeling. Hopefully things will start to swing in the other direction. Life has a funny way of balancing itself out, you know? God bless and I'll keep you in my prayers!

Thank you ShellyLargent! It just seems that this year is starting out so crummy on my health. I have the drive and motivation yet limited right now due to my leg. Hugs
