Doin' Good

Some improvements in the house!

I started taking enebrel almost 2 weeks ago now...I am feeling so so so much better. I no longer feel like I have the flu. I still am having some problems in my wrists and fingers, but almost no problems in my shoulders and knees. My feet feel better also. Some side effects are scary... but not using the medicine was also getting very scary. I have not had anything serious thus far... I get a headache and become itchy... so I started giving myself the injection just before I go to bed, and take tylenol PM about 30 min before the injection. Last weeks worked out pretty good... much less itching and I was asleep so who knows if I had a headache,lol.

Money is still an issue, but since I am feeling better I am going to try to find a way to pick up a PT job, or do something to make a lil extra, and I am going to do some cuts to the non essential budget areas to try to help that out as well.

Today I stopped and grabbed a pint of Ben and Jerrys Ice Cream- my favorite flavor-Coffee Heath Bar Crunch. Its my dinner,lol.

The supervisor that was making me crazy was terminated, so that has made work a lil easier for me. Now I will probably go ahead and apply for that job when the opening becomes available.

tough time

So I am going to whine. I am feeling like doing it... and since this is my blog... even though I try not to...I am going to do it here.

I am sick. My RA is not responding well to medication, and I am most likely going to have to take something that the side effects scare me as bad as RA does. I also have a related, not often seen type of anemia that is making me feel tired all. the. time. It just really really sucks. I am going to live, and people have it so much worse...but I am sick of being sick.

I have more month than money lol... and that also just really really sucks. I work hard, and I am good at my job... I don't really care about material things...just want enough money to be able to pay my bills and support myself and help my kids the way I have committed to.

I am also getting very frustrated with people. People are very selfish, people are unkind, judgmental and some people really delight in hurting other people. How does that happen? I honestly wake up every day and try to be kind and helpful to everyone... how does someone else wake up and look for ways to hurt people? I don't get it. I am trying to not criticize things I don't understand... but I'm gonna criticize that,lol.

Today's facebook status... in no way related to my whinefest... just thought it was funny... When you start your day...remember that you have the right to remain silent...anything you say can and will be misinterpreted and used against you... haha loveit!

Blessings today include:

an awesome best friend
diet coke w/ chocolate from sonic
good kids who love their mama
good food
satelite television
an 11 day vacation from work coming up beginning Saturday!
