Too Long since writing

Oh my! It has been a long time since I "blogged". I didn't think I had any readers so I was surprised to see that I had a comment. Thanks for that.

Anyway, I've been so busy. I started a new job on June 6 and I've been so busy there. I work tons and stress a lot and it's probably the worst environment for me, but I actually like what I do.
Aside from it keeping me from my family, it's not too bad. Oh, and the fact that it's like a frat house there.
"Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how'd you like the play?"

My MS is okay at the moment. I'm a little sore and tired and feeling all sorts of weird things lately, but I'm trying not to go back to my current neuro. I'm waiting to get in with a new one. My goal is to go to someone who gives a crap and who's staff actually give a crap and who actually have an education.
I needed some insurance paperwork to go through and it took them about TEN weeks to get it. Ridiculous!

Anyway, I'm worried about my husband who's had a health issue come up yesterday, as a matter of fact!! I am a little scared! And with our small kids, this just isn't the time.
But other than the health stuff, I'm happy and in love with my husband and my kids. And yes, even when my nearly 5 year old daughter is driving me absolutely crazy, I still love her!!
My son isn't walking yet, but he's getting closer. He's 13 months old now and just cute as anything. He's a real snuggler!! What can be cuter?!?!

Oh... the shots, sometimes just really hard to do, but I've resorted to having a glass of wine before hand... sometimes I even skip that.
I have recently started doing a trick my husband and I taught my daughter for when she got her shots recently. Take a deep breath and blow out really hard! It kind of works, believe it or not. Anything to take the edge off and get my thumb to push the dang button! :-)

For anyone reading this and wanting to know how hard it is, I just have one thing to say, "Just do it!!" And again, my diatribe of switching sites!! It's important!! I couldn't imagine being even more pin-cushiony in areas just because I didn't switch off!!
So go for it and good luck!!
Oh... and since I'm not doing too badly, I'm thinking, hey, it's working!!
I'm signing off... I have to go enjoy our new, big, lovely bed!!
Good night!!

The joys of the insurance hassles. Just enough to make the MS even more fun! :-(

Never had much of a thing for wine, but maybe some malt liquor on injection night will be the way to go! ;-)

Take care, and glad things are going well for you!

Gotta loves those kids. They will keep you sane! :-)

Sorry for your insurance and doctor hassles. Those are the worst. And who can afford anything to do with MS without insurance?

Thanks for blogging!

That first piledriver of realized mortality really spooked me too. All I could think of was 'what about the kids' ... not, 'how do I get better'. It get better, honest!
