Two Months Later

Two months later I am still feeling the effects of the automobile accident. The wheel feel off the car. Thank goodness we weren't going too fast! It happened in front of a dealership who actually give me money for a trade in on a used car. A car payment was NOT in the plans! Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do. It's an 09 Hyundai Accent. It would not have been my first choice but it will do. I am still a nervous wreck every time I drive. Two accidents that close together would make anyone nervous.

I had two MRI's this week and both showed damage. My left knee is really messed up and my neck has disc damage.  My doctor said we would discuss surgery at my next appointment. This accident keeps on giving and giving. Funny thing is that I thought the pain I was having was just my "normal" pain.

I have been so hyper and anxious the last several days. My psychiatrist order a lithium  level on me to see if that is OK, Well between PT and my doctors appointments that is all I do.

I really have to be thankful that things were not worst.

Does anyone else have trouble with call centers? I have had to call three times for the same problem and they still can't get it right! On top of that you get someone you can't understand. Finally I asked for a supervisor to see if the can fix the problem.

It is so muggy today. We went to some garage sales today and only spent  only13 dollars for a nice computer desk.  Such a deal!

I fell today. I don't understand why but when I'm having a lupus flare I have trouble walking.

Gas Prices

I knew I should have filled the tank yesterday.  It went up 15 cents a gallon over night! It has gone up 25 cents a gallon in a week. Is anyone else having this problem?

Sun Light

The sun is shinning to day so I spent a little time outside. Sunshine is good for the mood so I went for it. I'm getting more range of motion back in my shoulder and hip since I have been going to PT.  My left knee is still very stiff and sore. I still can not fully straighten it. Over all I am getting better.

Thankful today that a group from church are moving my grass.

Where My Mind Is


Saturday, May 04, 2013


I have been struggling the last several weeks. It has been hard to blog or do anything that I really enjoy. I have been in a lot more pain since the two motor vehicle accidents. I think that is playing on my emotions. They are starting physical therapy next week on my shoulder and hip. I am hoping to get back some range of motion in both.  I took a short walk today. I think that was good for me. It was very cool, almost cold, outside today. It is good to get out of the house.

The weather has been crazy this spring. It's 80-90 today.  Tomorrow it's only going to be in the 40's. Our air conditioner is out so the cool front will be welcome. My allergies have been going crazy! It is Spring.
