Just an area for what I’m doing on an everyday basis.

New Primary

I finally found us a new primary.  

Appointment is not until June 1st. =( But when setting up with a new primary, the appointment is longer and harder to book.

The new doctor is closer, female (requirement for both of us), and use to serve in the Army Medical Corp…..a huge plus.  

Hubby deals with PTSD and anxiety… that fact that she served and is used to dealing with vets that deal with those issues, even if his is not service related.  It is a major helpful factor. 

Hubby & I do our appointments together, helps us on remembering what is covered during the visit and bring up things the other might forget or the other one notices.

He really needs a skin check, I’ve been stressing that for awhile, and I already posted some of my issues that I need to address.

Everyone was a huge help on encouragement and ideas on my last post.  I really appreciate it.  It helped to feel that I am not going crazy.

Some have reached out with more detail information and I will be taking that with me.  Every little bit to help figure things out, I’m grateful for.

Feels good to make a step in the right direction.

Life Changes

I’ve been having issues the last few months on lack of motivation, energy, coping, trying to stay out getting into funks…slides into depression.

Things that were never a struggle, now I have to force my through it.  I just don’t seem to have the energy, not even to do the most basic things, I need more sleep.  I just want to shut down and hide from the world.  

I’m not interacting on FB like I use to.  I’m missing it, but at the same time, just don’t feel like getting involved anymore.

Oh, I post articles I’ve read, but I’m not “following” my family and friends like I use to.  

I’m going to try and cut down on the articles….try to stick to posting more personal stuff….because if I’m not interacting, who wants all those articles.

I’m just trying not to slide into a funk. =(

This feels like it has come on so suddenly….I wasn’t feeling this way, this time last year.

There has to be a reason….so I’ve been trying to figure out what the hell has changed.

Well, the only thing I can think is that I’m going through the “change” or menopause.  I haven’t had a cycle since June of last year.  

I use to be very, very regular and a few years ago, that changed and when I got my hormones tested, they keep telling me that I was normal for a woman my age.  But NO one would tell what the hell that means!  

Seriously, doctors don’t tell a woman that….tell her what the fuck that means!  

I’m so f’king annoyed by that….took me a bit to realize that if it was “normal” for a woman my age…that it means it probably has changed…eye roll.

I started researching it….because no one was telling me what it meant.

Some of the crap I’m going through that comes with it:

  • Fatigue
  • Night sweats & Hot Flashes (Had those a lot last summer/fall)
  • Mood swings and irritability.
  • Difficulty sleeping.
  • Cognitive changes (difficulty remembering names, directions, losing focus/train of thought)
  • Weight gain and slowed metabolism

I’m so over this….I just want my energy and thinking back.  

So sorry everyone on not being around as much as I use to, even if was just to like your post.  I loved to keep up on everyone, even if I didn’t comment.  But I seriously just want to hide from the world at this point and anything I do, I have to make myself do.  

I think I got this from mom….lol

48th Birthday

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes!!

I love and appreciate them more then you know!

Since I went to the gym yesterday, I skipped it and spent it doing things around the house with hubby.

After I opened all my little gifts from hubby, I took down the tree.  It was going to be the only day I had before the new year and I never have my tree up twice in one year.

I took more time putting my ornaments away then when I put them up, but when I put them up it was a spur of a moment thing.  It felt good through them, I haven’t really gone through them since 2012, the last time we had a big tree.

I need to get 4 of our cat ornaments engraved with their final year  =(  Need to get ones for Anastasia and Gimil 

Where the tree was, put up a new shelving unit and we did some rearranging. Freed up space, feels nice….after 3 years finally looks like we are “living” here…lol

I went and picked up gyros….so tasty.  =)

We actually got some snow today….doesn’t seem to be lasting.  But the concern we have around here is that we are suppose to be getting into some freezing temps over the next few days and that makes the roads scary.

It was a good both relaxing and productive birthday  =)

Now I need to get things ready for work tomorrow.

Current Happenings

We got our boosters yesterday, it is a relief.

1st time over a year, only got gym twice this week….not happy about that. Changing that next week, one way or another.

Annoyed that that when I had to go in to work yesterday to get the pcs online, that I rolled my ankle on a dang pine cone….it is swollen and means I have to figure out something different at the gym….eye roll

After being together for over 28yrs, we are clueless about what to get each other or even what to tell the other to get…..frustrating. I think we are going to get ipads….won’t be delivered until Jan/Feb…but the kindle fires we got last year due are ok, just don’t feel quite right.

Too much of apple users….need to get back to ipads…our current ones are ipad 2…..pretty old…time for an upgrade. =)

Hubby’s BIG 50!

It is hubby’s BIG 50! =)

Got him a few more t-shirts…..? Star Wars action figures & a Funko Batman, picked up his birthday Starbucks =)
Just spending a quiet day at home currently watching the #MichiganWolverines & the #OhioStBuckeyes.

Have #Purdue Basketball later today.

As the years go on, things get both more simpler and more complex in the gift giving. Simpler in that you aren’t wanting much, complex in that you don’t know what you want anymore, since you usually just get what you want when you want it.

So I was happy that I was able to think of a few things that he would like to have =)

From 2yrs ago…..

After hubby opened the t-shirts I got him.

Me: Now I know why Mom gets Dad t-shirts all the time (as I watch him put on a Batman one & thinking of the last pic of Dad with his torn up t-shirt)

Hubby (chuckles): It becomes even more clear as the years goes on
