I visited the clinic yesterday. Town was full of people out and about, the only ones with masks on at the clinic were my provider and her tech and maybe one other. Our county now has 45 cases of Covid, less than 700 have been tested. I am not of the ‘get on with living or get on with dying‘ wagon. I have enough trouble with one chronic illness!!
Anyway, I shared the last two months with the person I spoke to. She first decided to focus on chest pains and then tummy pains and get me meds for being dizzy. She didn’t want to be concerned with the neck pain til she poked it and I dropped into dizzy. So, now she wants and EKG thing for me to wear for a day or so, the meds, and an xray. However, I am not supposed to drive and I need to be careful with walking and so forth. I didn’t go back to town today. I drove home yesterday about ready to toss cookies and in a lot of pain. I didn’t sleep well last night, my eyes are not focusing properly, and the person yesterday said she’d call me back. In my own research, cuz I think this will be up to me, I found different kinds of neuropathy that might cause most of the symptoms I’ve been having. (and why does spell check want to keep changing that to osteopathy??) Unfortunately, most of the medical helps are drugs that cause sleepies. Which I refuse to take unless it is bedtime! Perhaps I should look into magnesium supplements?
I did find, through a Diabetes educator, a site I am in love with. (follow the link!) I’d make memes using her t-shirt slogans, but alas…I need to find out just how to do that. I particularly like her MILF: Managing Insulin Levels Fiercely and this one: I’m so alpha, my beta cells have stopped working. So much fun. The creator has a blog and tells a story about her having Covid and how she felt being a person with T1Diabetes helped her.
Moses is feeling better, except for a lot of sneezing. He was outside in the sun and a sweet fluffy youngster came to visit. Moses wasn’t taking visitations and I ended up booting the grumpy feline back inside!! This young one had a harness on last week and today he scampered up one of the locust trees so fast! He ended up higher than any of our own cats have been and managed to jump down from the squirrel feeder! Oh to be that young and energetic! No wonder Moses was grumpy!!!
The starlings have finally emptied out the suet feeder. The woodpeckers were trying to get in, but as you can see from the sharp yellow beaks on the starlings, it is a dangerous game!!! (I could only get the back of one and the front of another in this photo) Now the suet feeder is empty and the starlings are not around, the little birds are back at the seed feeders again. I also had to take a photo of Meepette with her festive flowers. (Little Bear made me Meep and Meepette a few years back, they are roadrunner like metal birds made from farm implements)
Friday is May 1. I need more flowers than the dollar plants in the yard to give away. (I almost fell into them posing here and those things have stickers like nettles!) These are my last tulips, I think there are probably about a half dozen, and the chokecherry is thick with tiny flowers, scent, and a lot of stinging creatures..this one is a wasp.
