Days like today.

Days like today are meant for sleeping in and vegging out on the couch all day. I wish I could but I’ve got these two little stinkers that are always on the move. Well, Eli not so much but he sure can roll! It amazes me. I’ll leave the room for only a second and he’s in a completely different place ans direction than what I left him. Sneaky, sneaky kids!

Today’s been a “brother” kind of day. Jude has been paying way more attention to Elijah these days. I’m not complaining at all. As a matter of fact, I love it! He just needs to learn to go a little easier with him, that’s all. He’s been randomly kissing him and hugging him and loves to bounce and swing him when he’s in his Johnny Jumper. It just melts my heart! One of my biggest hopes is that they become super close as they get older. They are only two years apart so we’ll see. My sister and I are four years apart. There are times that her and I are close but then other times we’re not. She just hasn’t matured yet and doesn’t have any aspirations in life and to me, that’s a bog downfall. Who doesn’t want to succeed in life?

The only bad thing about today has been the phone tag with doctors today. I finally have a set appointment with a neurologist on February 15th at 10:00am with Dr. Bunch. From there, what I was told, is that he’s then going to refer me to a pain management specialist. I don’t understand why we can’t just cut out the middle man and skip to where I’ll end up anyway. But I’m doing what they say so there are no arguments, no drama, no nothing. They filled my last script and told me to make it last for two weeks. I can do that. It’s not an issue. It’s going to be hard but I can and will do it. It just really bums me out that this is my condition. I’m only twenty-four years in age and I already have arthritis? The pain, without ANY medication is just almost unbearable. I try not to take the pain meds everyday because of addiction but some days, I just have to. I hate relying on anything so this whole situation is just one big bummer. I’m going to start up physical therapy too to see if that helps at all. Hopefully it does. I’d even settle for a little bit of relief. This whole situation doesn’t help with my depression at all and actually makes me have episodes even more frequently. I refuse to act that way infront of the kids so on really bad days, I just wait until their nap time, put them in their beds and cry, cry, cry. It makes me feel so weak. I never used to cry as much as I do now, if it all. I’m just lucky the situation isn’t as bad as it could be. That I don’t have a worse medical condition. It’s still stressful none the less.

We’re just waiting for the husband to get home from work now. I’ve decided that I’m just going to make hamburgers tonight for dinner. I told you, it’s just one of those lazy days. Jude loves hamburgers so I’m sure I won’t hear any complaints from him.

That is all. Until next time friends. ♡

    Oh my gosh I feel bad for you. 24 does sound so young for painful arthritis that you describe. Is that what they told you? I hope your neurologist can figure out how to help. Wishing you the best!

    • My general practitioner told me that my scan showed that I have arthritis in my lower back. Which definitely explained the pain I’m having. She’s sending me to the neurosurgeon for my guidance with this, I suppose. I’ve never had to do any of this stuff before in my life so it’s all new to me. Thank you so much for your kind world. ♡
