ummmmmmmmmm Happy Friday?

4 Comments

You know some Fridays start off fantastically! While others seem to start with a whimper… you know what I mean. It’s like, oh yeah, it’s Friday. Um woo hoo.

Course mine is somewhat understandable after the little health scare yesterday.
And thank goodness my boss let me leave to go to the CBOC. I had been feeling light headed and dizzy. Almost fainted three times in my office. And then OMG! Category off the charts migraine hit me, that suddenly. I normally have a buildup, or I can feel one coming on. This was just “BLAM!” and I was nearly out of it. Sounds, smells, and the light…I’m really light sensitive. The location was completely different as well. So yeah, I left work and drove myself to the CBOC. No one here volunteered, hubs was at work. I couldn’t reach any family to come and get me. So I drove the back way that way if something did happen, I’d crash in a field and not into anyone else. Yeah, that’s somewhat dramatic of me, but I do think like that. Keeps everyone else safe, I mean I was impaired. IN PAIN!

so anywho I get there, my awesome nurse got me in, turned off the lights, got me an ice pack and after checking my bp which, duh, was up. Told me to lie down and relax while staffing with my doctor. Good news, the symptoms I was having are fairly close to a woman’s symptoms of having a heart attack. But It was NOT a heart attack! Bad news, It was the worst migraine ever!! So I’m up for some more neurological tests! can we say, Woohoo?? LOL I swear I have to keep a sense of humor, and mine is mainly smartassery! It kind of makes sense. ๐Ÿ˜›
So I received some good meds, and they called hubs to come and retrieve me. I was NOT allowed to drive after ingesting the meds, talk about impaired. Woooo! I was all wonky and loopy, and dudes! I swear I could sing…. okay, very loud, and I was making up my own lyrics, but I didn’t care. LOL
Hubs got me, was brave enough to stop and we ate dinner at IHOP, apparently he doesn’t care if I might have embarrassed myself at IHOP. He’s amused easily. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€ After that we made another quick stop, and then home! Where he tucked me in to bed, gave me a cup of tea, my next dosage of medication, and put Stargate SG:1 in my DVD player. I was allowed one ep and then sleepy time. Okay, so he conked out first, and I watched two eps. Turned off the dvd player And then I was loopy enough to fall asleep.

So after that excitement, I’m just a little meh this morning. I’ll probably get back to the perky perky moi after a bit!! I’m just easing into it. Or lulling my co-workers into a false sense of _________! LOL Oh yeah, I can feel it start to wake up. OOOH! More coffee should do it!

Ya’ll take care! Keep Calm and Keep Groovin’ ON! *Wiggle wiggle wiggle*

And what a Friday it looks to be…

The dark clouds are moving in slowly, there’s a line of them outside of my office window. I think it’s beautiful in a way. A little unknown fact about me, I Love Storms!! I do. And I can feel the energy building up inside of me. The migraine is slowly receding. So it’s looking to be a beautiful day for me.

and one small lil teeny rant; If you have ‘unlimited’ data, how can you reach a limit?? I’m not able to post on twitter, facebook or even here from my phone. waaah ๐Ÿ˜ฆ the wifi in the building is centralized to one location and it blocks the fun stuff, i.e. facebook and twitter. ๐Ÿ˜›

And I’m looking at my gravatar, think I need to change it… oops random thought there. lol

the calendars have all been posted, and I’m not going to password protect them. I believe we’re all adults here. If something offends you, then don’t look. Otherwise, enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

till later, Have an Awesome Friday!!
~Peace~

Doobie Doobie Dooooo

title is from a facebook post I did yesterday, and received some funny comments…

anywho, it’s been a week… I really haven’t felt like writing. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Which is sad for me. Rarely do I feel like that. But when dealing with things that I deal with it, sometimes I need a breather.

It’s not been bad. Busy, maybe?

And I can’t talk about it. so…”Let’s keep moving.”

I’ve come up with a brilliant idea for my uniform, and I’d like to have it done by the time Gen Con is here. Debut, anyone? LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

And I’m going to remain tight lipped about it for now, as I’ve never seen any like what I’m planning. So… mum’s the word! ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s still pretty out, it’s raining a bit, and hopefully the weather system passes through, my sinus migraine is starting to get a little annoying, it’s still at a 3, but it’s trying to form into a full blown migraine at any moment. I’ve been trying to stay stress free, HA! So I’ve been reading some Stargate:Atlantis fanfic, and I found a really cute story. Still reading, so at the mo, it’s cute. Depends on how they end it, if I’ll share it or not with my friends. And that reminds me, omg! I’ve read two or three really amazing stories, spelling errors aside, if the story is ‘that’ good, I’ll ignore spelling issues. Only to come to the next chapter, and it’s NOT Complete!! OMG!! I want to know what’s happened?
I can’t even figure out which way it’d go in my brain to calm myself down, they really had some brilliant evil characters that I can’t wrap my brain around. ARRRGH! I’ve written the author, please continue! I’ve got to find out how this ends.

Which then makes me feel guilty, as I have posted a story on Plot Bunny that is a wip… I really need to get back to the wip’s and re-write a few bits, and then see if my co-writer wants to write. And I’ve been trying to coax my one bunny out to write on the challenge fic I’m working on. but like me, he just wants to veg a bit longer. So I’m not going to force it. Forcing yourself to write, never ends up in a good way for me. But perhaps… just perhaps… I might go out this weekend and find a nice spot to do some writing. The old pen to paper writing, that always seems to help. I’ve always preferred ink to digital, there’s just something really relaxing to me about writing longhand across a blank sheet of paper. ๐Ÿ˜€ Plus I get to doodle in the margins. LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

Have a beautiful Thursday! Donate to the Red Cross if you can for the families in Oklahoma. Again, I’m not a journalist, and you’re already undated with all the news.

Peace! ~*~

Thank you!

Thank you to those that have been ‘liking’ my posts and then following my blog, that’s outstanding!! ๐Ÿ˜€

And it’s another beautiful Monday morning, a little chilly out, but it hasn’t deterred me from wearing my sandals. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m so ready for the nice Spring weather. Including wearing my daisy wristlets, not quite a full arm warmer, but enough to comply with the dress code and cover up my tattoos, on my arms. Some days, I just don’t get it, they aren’t rude, crude or obnoxious. My right arm is Jeannie, from I Dream of Jeannie, and my left arm is Samantha from Bewitched. Both really cute little art pieces that were designed for me by two awesome artists. However, I do follow the rules, easier than being cranky about it.

If you noticed, there were no blogs Thursday and Friday, so let’s do a recap. LOL

Thursday; I woke up at 3a with a migraine Category OMG! I give them category ratings, 1-5 I can maybe deal and work through, 6-8 questionable about work, see what I can do, and if necessary go home early. 9 & 10, no way, I’m calling in. The OMG! Category, I’m about to go to the ER to get a shot, as soon as I can focus to drive. But I was never able to focus, I took what meds I do have for migraines, pulled down the black out curtains, turned off the heat, and turned on the fans. I prefer cold and dark. No lights, no smells, no noises. The pounding of my head is more than enough, however occasionally I have turned on some classical. Just no 1812 overture. Nature sounds….if they have repetive noise, no way. I have found an interesting little app, Omvana that has a nice relaxing channel on there, and I was using that on Thursday. I think by 8pm, I was able to sit up without falling over, or covering my head.

Friday; Got up early, was getting ready to fix the morning coffee, when Hubs informed me we had to stop for blood/labwork for him, before going to his procedure. So no coffee…he was fasting, and therefore I was fasting. ugh ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
Made it to the place that did his labwork, and he was out in fifteen minutes. Phlebotomists love him. Me, I’d be there for longer than fifteen minutes. And next stop was coffee at Starbuck’s before going to Indianapolis for his procedure. Which went well. He only whined for a few hours after.
While down in Indianapolis, and after having multiple packets lost, I decided to hand-deliver my application for testing for my Licensure. YAY! It was taken, and then I was informed that there is still one more step. ack ACK! I’ve been attempting since October to get the date for my test…okay, okay…I’m calm. And this morning I scheduled the last thing I needed for my application. A full Criminal Background Check, this is not a problem for me. I’ve had oh lets see, since I started the schooling for this profession, I’ve had five of these done, and I’m good!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Just one more little hurdle, and then it’s Exam time!!
After dropping that off, and receiving that news, we decided to go to TGIF’s for lunch, love their new less expensive menu options. Still an excellent meal, at a lower price. Plus going before 4p you also get a break on pricing.
And Hubs was feeling better, and wanting to go walk around the Mall before we headed home. So off to Castleton Square we went. For Mall walking, and people watching it’s a good mall. I did however go into a few of my favorite stores, and um…yeah, I found a pair of Hello Kitty hoop earrings for 50% off, and if I used my card-an additional 20% off. I couldn’t resist, okay, I probably could have, but I wanted them, and 70% off total, for a girl, that’s a D E A L! I know, guys are thinking, I could have saved 100% and not buy them. Yeah, yeah…whatev. LOL I’ll see if I can find a really good clear picture of them.
hoop earrings

back to it, Have an Awesome day!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Happy Friday o.0

And so another round of wintery mix has been dumped into Indiana. It started last night, with an icy sleet. I was reading on my news feeds about slide-off’s and other accidents in Indianapolis. And then I started hearing it hit my roof. Wow, it was definitely loud. I fell asleep quite well listening to it.

Then this morning I get up, and it didn’t look that bad from the windows. It wasn’t until I had to pry my car door open and looked at the pretty ice buildup on my windows that it struck me, “Oh Hell!” lol ๐Ÿ˜›

So I started up the car, and the defrosters, found my ice-scraper and got to work. Until my fingers started getting all tingly from the water and the cold. I let the defroster do the work, and then used the windshield wipers to push it all away. Oh yeah, you have to love really good defrosters! well, I do.

I’m at work, and I’m wondering who is really going to be brave and go out in this weather? The roads aren’t iced over, but the snowy sludge is making them slick and difficult to drive on in areas. Personally, I would’ve stayed home myself. However my job, I am a ‘key’ personnel, and they will send the police to bring me in to work. No state emergencies for me. That is a mixed thing.

I’m thinking it’s time to bring out the ipdad and do some creativity. I downloaded a really cool new app, and I’m dying to try it out. It has a lot of functionality, but so far, the learning curve is a bit annoying. For free though, I’m willing to put up with the annoyance if it truly does what I want it to do. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; if you have an iPhone, please download the AppsGoneFree app, you’d be amazed at what apps are offered for free!! Seriously, it’s worth it and it’s FREE!!

okay, time to watch people slide across the sidewalk in front of my window. It’s sad, but it’s still slightly entertaining. What? If they really get hurt, I’m right next to a phone, and then I’ll go help them too!! I’m a little evil, but not that evil! lol ๐Ÿ˜€

laters, and I probably will be posting the valentine’s day cards on the photo blog, I need to get them off my phone, and I really want to keep them. So when I can get to a laptop, I’ll organize them all. We’ll see if I can get them all in one post, but that’s highly doubtful. So just enjoy them!!

HUGS, stay warm, stay hydrated, and stay off the roads unless you have no choice otherwise.

Happy Fiday and an Update on moi…

Leave a comment

So for those not in the know, the day before Halloween I had a bad accident that resulted in a TBI, aka a concussion. I have suffered some brain damage- memory loss, mainly three hours prior to the accident and some other wacky stuff. I actually had forgotten my name. yeah…

and my blood pressure was skyrocketing. So I got permission to leave work, went to see the hubs and asked him what my name was. That went over really well. So he had the lovely pharmacist take my bp and he got permission to take me to the ER. Where it was determined I needed a CAT scan and an IV. woo…yay…

Before/after, I don’t know…the Cat Scan, it was determined that my brain was swelling. And that wasn’t good. So they gave me some medication in my IV to reduce the brain swelling and some morphine to reduce the pain, and hopefully my bp. Well it kinda worked. BP is very stubborn, the diastolic- your bottom number, was not going down, quite the opposite really. The Systolic-top number, was going down. So more pain medication to help me and my body to relax and I started to use my DBT skills to also help reduce my stress/tension and fear. UH, Yeah! Honestly, not knowing your name, losing three hours of memory-not recalling how you had recieved the TBI, and then finding out your brain is swelling-along with the fact I have permanent brain damage. so not very good.

Twelve hours later, after some food, the IV of meds, and Hubs helping calm me down, I was able to leave. I was off work for a week. not good, but I didn’t argue. I was scared.

That Monday I was due to go back to work, I received a phone call, the MRI that I was to have was due that day! So…called my boss, explained the stitch, and called hubs to drive me to FT Wayne VA for my MRI.

I wasn’t allowed to drive at that time. Still wasn’t medically cleared to put myself behind the steering wheel of a vehicle. Totally understood that concern.

So anywho, we made it to the MRI appt on time. Yay! And wow! Have they changed. Hubs was pacing the entire time I was in the tube. What should have been a 15 minute scan, turned out to be a 25 minute scan. Not that big of a deal, but enough to have Hubs freaking out. The techs told me that they had asked him if he was okay, and then offered to sit on him. LOL He’s very claustrophic. Which??? Okay, I was the one in the tube, not him. But I guess I really have scared him.

After that we got some food, and then back home. The first couple of days back at work, was interesting, and annoying- me personally. I kept double and triple-checking my work. Thank goodness, repition of a task, really does help you remember it. And this week I’m still not quite at 100%, more like 75-80% but, that’s still good in my book. I am driving, doing my job, and the smart ass level is finally coming back. As I’ve said previously, if I lose my sense of humor. I’m doomed! Doomed, I say! LOL (See!)

So that’s why I haven’t been posting in the past couple of weeks, resting and recuperating. Plus…memory issues, I had to remember some things. oops ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Oh and the change in the seasons, the temp has been dropping, causing some Fibro issues. I’m used to that now, but the migraines from the barometric pressure- yeah, never use to those. Ugh.

Internet is back down at the house as well, so…that will make some future posts sporadic again. Dangit, I am calling someone! No, not ghostbusters…LOL I want my net!!

Ya’ll have a safe and happy Friday!! Enjoy the weekend. Here in Indiana it’s supposed to be pretty nice, chilly-it’s fall, but still nice!

ugh….

so I made it to my appt this morning…had my blood pressure taken multiple times, I think I counted seven times..and then yay, the vampire was able to get my blood in one stick. My pulse was up, and the migraine was still really really bad. And, omg, I was right, my elevated blood pressure was causing my migraine.
since I didn’t have a driver, I wasn’t given the migraine shot. The doctor did give me the day off from work, with the order to RELAX!!
she also cancelled my old bp medication, as obviously it’s not working. And I got a pneumonia shot. cool. And yay, her bedside manner has improved! That’s always a plus. I was going to fire her in the past…because she wasn’t personable, and she treated me as if I was an annoyance in her day. Just because, I get free medical, due to my service in the ARMY and I’m a DAV, doesn’t mean, I put up with bad treatment. I deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Same as how I treat the people that see me.

so, I’m hoping to find my co-writer, and see if he wants to write. I’ve added in some more to the wip. And I’ve decided to do my ‘status’ updates on Google + if you have my email addy, send me a request.

till later, I’m following doctor’s orders and relaxing. Writing to me, is very relaxing!!
He has such a beautiful smile!! ๐Ÿ˜€

sick…migraine was over 20, on the pain scale…

I pretty much stayed in bed, trying to keep it cold and dark, smells would set my stomach off, and I was getting sick. which then would cause my fibro to act up. damn…I hate it when it’s this bad.

then I received this tag as a present from a friend, simply lovely!! Thank you, Alyssia!!

and good night, taken my shot, as the ibuprofen still wasn’t cutting it. Migraine has receded to a bad headache, but still couldn’t get to sleep.

Happy New Year!! 2012

I’ve had a very quiet day today!
Fibro pain has been a 2 on the 10 pt scale. So that’s a good start to the New Year. At least imo.
And I’m being a bad Irish descendant, I’m having Zataran’s Dirty Rice! LOL They are available in microwavable form. YAY! Know what I’ll be buying for Mardi Gras’ night! LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

other than all this excitement. I’m still proofing the story. Fibro pain down, migraine on the rise. Wish my head and body would get on the same wavelength. And I’ve been playing on my facebook page. Yeah, I know. Never say never. The only way I’ve been able to keep in touch with some people. And keep up with what’s going on in their lives. As they don’t seem able to open up an email???? I can open up and do a status, but email?? NO! sighs! oh well. Better to have some contact then none at all. ๐Ÿ˜€

Look for that silver lining! ๐Ÿ˜€

so I hope everyone has had a good first day of 2012! ๐Ÿ˜€
I truly hope all of my friends and family are still safe and sound.
Take care! till later, PEACE & HUGS
