Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!! I know it has been a long time since I have blogged. I have been crazy busy with all of my doctor appointments and my continued battle with social security. I understand that I just have to be persistent, and I shall be awarded at one time in the future (We hope)! Today was a good day for me. I actually got out of bed and took a shower, which is huge for me. I even left the house which is very uncommon for me. I went shopping @ one of my favorite stores. I was so disappointed...I had ten dresses/items to try on. Not even one looked okay. I just looked like an overstuffed sausage. It was just horrid!!! This isn't a New Year's resolution, but I have decided to at least lose 10 pounds. I want to be realistic about losing weight. My husband wants me to lose 20 pounds & my daughter seems to think that I can lose 30! They are both nuts! There is no way, I just want to be realistic so that I won't be so disappointed. I am sure some people know what I mean, right? I just called my pharmacy because I just realized that I was supposed to pick up some meds on Monday. I have supposedly already met my co-pay because I was taken to the hospital for an emergency and I am almost positive that I am probably going to get a huge bill that will cover my high deductible. I was trying to avoid that, but what can I do? I asked not to be taken...but of course they would not let me go. After that incident, I now have to be religious on wearing my Medic Alert jewelry. I was totally passed out and was unable to speak. I guess I just missed a few minutes or up to half an hour of time. Of course there were many questions. But after I woke up, I was able and coherent to say my husband's work number and that I had Lupus. Of course they checked my blood sugar...but I ate breakfast and lunch already. So they gave me some medicine to empty out my stomach. Ugh, this is the second time that I have had that done. It is just awful and pretty gross. Oh well, happy new year to everyone out there :)
