...of a chocolate addict. I'm feeling really stressed today & I have turned to chocolate. I'm so mad at myself.
Last night was Senior Night at my sister's soccer game & they lost. Not unheard of for her team, but it was still sad. The refs made a lot of bad calls that effected the game.
My neck & shoulder felt better today & thought I'd make it the gym. It so didn't happen. I did get in a little strength training today.
My mom is over weight, a diabetic, who refuses to check her blood sugar, has high blood pressure & is in Stage 3 of Chronic Kidney Disease. Her back has been hurting for a week now. Last night she finally got to where she couldn't stand at all. We had to call an ambulance last night to take her to the hospital. The X-ray looks like she has arthritis in her lower back. She also has a bladder infection, her kidney function is worse, she's anemic, she's dehydrated & her blood sugar is way to high. They held her in the ER all night waiting for a bed & they finally got her a room this afternoon.
Our dog, Shadow, who lives next door with my parents, is almost 13 years old & the vet thinks he has cancer. The tests are expensive & the treatment would probably kill him. We may have to put him down. He has lost control of his bladder & my dad is having a really hard time keeping the carpets clean.
I have to work tomorrow & Friday. I see my psychologist tomorrow. I really haven't worked on the biofeedback like I should have the last couple of days. Too late now. I think we have one more approved session left. I see my pain doc Friday & I'll find out where he wants to go from here. I'm pretty sure I have more nerve blocks in my future. I'm still waiting for a referral to a new neurologist. It just seem to take so long for anything to happen.
I know we don't have more thrown at us than we can handle, but I'm a little tired of being tested. And it's okay guys I have backed away from the chocolate.
