just stuff

I joined an online Yahoo support group for people with TN. It helps me to know others out there are going through the same things I am...loss of social life, intolerance of heat, light, cold, activity, smells, sounds...I felt really isolated for a little while there.

I go see Neurologist #3 on Monday. I'm hoping maybe he will be the one who I can stick with and who won't treat me like a moron. I'm no dummy. I've researched these conditions and I know my body well enough to be aware of what I do and do not tolerate. I know him from the hospital I used to work at so maybe that will help.

The ringing in my ears won't go away. It keeps getting louder and more annoying. Yesterday I had the tingly-scalp headache again. I let hubby drive to his post-op appointment. I would have stayed home but there's no way he'd have made it to the office without getting lost. He's good at going from point A to point B but when it goes in an out-of-the-routine way, forget it. I rode along and then took a nap in the car while he went in to see the doctor.

I need to find a way to make money while I'm sitting here. I'm thinking of online writing classes once my disability kicks in. Maybe I can do some freelancing.

I'm almost done with the mystery quilt top. I need to get on the ball so I can make the new grandbaby a quilt before the shower. I also need to fill out the invitations and stuff this week and get them in the mail.

My head hurts again today. I'm trying to lay off the Vicodin but it's about the only thing that helps other than sleep.

It's time for a nap.
