Glad to see you back here, JB. You know, you can come here and talk about anything you want to talk about. This board isn't just for you to spill your guts about what's ailing you unless YOU want to do that. I think we all got a bit confused when you started this topic (at my prompting Embarassed ) that this is what we wanted from you. Your illness and treatment can be as private a matter as you want it to be. I think everyone just wanted you to know we were concerned.

So please - post whatever makes you happy on whichever topic you feel like posting on. We always enjoyed your input on any of the topics. Are we good now?

Jeane, as I already said, thanks for talking about your experience as much as you had so far...would have wondered if you had just stopped posting on the Muttsblog altogether. The decision to move back here to Lansing took over a year to make. Your wisdom and advice helped me to get back here...thaks for that! Smile I'll be looking for you in the other topics Smile

Glad you're back Jeane! Please accept my apologies if I said anything that bothered or upset you.

Which Jim Carrey movies have you rediscovered? I thought he was a scream in Liar Liar. And Bruce Almights was great. Barely recognized him in Earth Girls are Easy....until his character had his fur all shaved off. And he did quite a bit of funny stuff on In Living Color......

glad to see you back, jeane. If you don't want to talk about certain things you certainly don't have to. We were concerned because we heard you were in the hospital again.
I mentioned FB because i've been getting postings on my email. Unfortunately as you know I cannot access FB at work and don't have the time at the library, .

Please don't forget we love you, and are concered about you but don't drop us Muttsies all together. there are lots of things to post about.

very fast cuz i really have to get it together in my head and haven't...onocologist says radiation inside and out....gastro doc says why don't they operate. more ultra sounds and blood work Fri and supposedly seeing the radiation doc the day after christmas.
have to start trying again to get in touch with the surgeon cuz i need the paperwork done so i can get paid for the 8 wks we want me off work. (i neverf get through to a person only a machine and nobody has answered back from any of these calls)
have to find and get to a dentist because beyond the tooth i lost when i was in the hospital 2 wks ago i have a broken tooth and another tooth that the crown has pulled off ot and ic an't get the crown back on.
i can't keep track of all these doctors anymore.
gastro doc also wants me to a go to ANOTHER liver specialist in Newark and the people upstairs refuse (i mean REFUSE) to take me there. ...as much as i keep telling the doc i can't get there he still wants me to get there. and i've given up even mentioning that this is supposed to save my life. who cares...they just want their money. but when i'm dead all they'll have is all my stuff that they can either throw in a big dumpster or sell on ebay.l

On top of is all? my pyscho sister is back to bugging me on FB...gawd...i just want to crawl in a hole and rot and not have to worry about all this anymore.

I'm also a bit stunned.......if the folks upstairs want their rent money so badly you'd think they'd want to help save your life and give you that ride! Can the doc's office help you arrange that ride since they want you to see that specialist so badly? They must have resources to hook you up with a ride......

If you don't want your sis or them to get your stuff make out a will and leave it all to be sold and proceeds go to an animal rescue! That's what my mom did to stop my sis from being p*ssed about me being executor. The ASPCA gets it all.

well i had been contacted by a law firm back home about a week ago. said i was due an inheritance but they needed some paperwork and info. i didn't say anyting about it cuz i didn't want people jumped all over me. And I was 99.9% if was the same crap as i got earlier this year where i spent a month back and forth with a bank back home only to be told that since i wasn't the 'black widow's' kid i got not a penny. same this time as well..and this law firm was nasty to me from the start.
for a brief fleeting second i had a little hope i would be able to feel a bit more fiancially safe..that money wasn't huge but it would have paid off a good chunch from the other hospital stay and tests.
now i've got to get my paperwork together (the stuff i have int he envelope now its a coupole months old)and get a ride to go beggin at the hospital for charity care and to social serves to get whatever i can. the big hindrance is that my paychecks look bigger than they normally are because the 'discount health plan' isn't taking their money out every week (which is around $100 a month)and i'm gettin more hours in sick time than i work in real time working.lf that makes any sense. i really would like to get about 8 months to checks together to show them...this is what i get paid when i'm working and they take the money out and this is the illusion i have as a check now.
in the meantime i'm trying to eat better and trying to eat the food out of the frreeze. found a corned beef that had expired two years ago...but it cooked up okay. and yeah,i know its full of salt but i soak it for about 6 hrs changing the water 4 times...and then changed the water twice when it was cooking so its not very salty now. Kinda hard to eat though...with all these broken and missing teeth.

Nothing like being on an emotional rollercoaster, that lawyer doesn't help with his attitude. If you can get that ride to the hospital and social services.....take your last tax return and all the checkstubs from this year neatly organized to plead your case. You might need to make a graph showing how your income rises and falls for the social services people....they seem to be purposely dense about finances rising and falling. If anything, they can take an average of your earnings to determine what if any help you'll get. I wish you loads of (((((((((((((((good luck vibes))))))))))))))) in getting all the financial help you can manage. I know hospital, insurance, and government red tape is hell to deal with.

How goes your writing and crafting? How are the kitties? And you? (((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

oh i don't think they go so far as needing a graph here...the charity care only wants i think your last two or last month's pay stubs. i'll see how many i can get but God only knows what all those things are scattered around here. between not having a place to put things and having to hide things as best i can i have no idea where all those stubs and bank statements etc are.
i have a zippered binder that i have all my medical stuff in and i STILL keep forgetting to put the names of the medication i'n on in there.
after the new year..when they go on sale..i hope to get one of those big data calendar things..li have one this year only because i got it free from some woman's health thing on FB. it works reallly well....but i need to get one that states in JAn..and hopefully has some pages in the back to put phone #s...right now i've got stuff scattered al over in there on any page i could fit it

Keeping track of the medications has got to be a nightmare. I know when I was sick in
November I had a hard time keeping track of what little I was taking.

My mom had trouble once with multiple meds, kept forgetting them and sometimes taking them twice because she forgot she'd already taken them. Ended up making her a checklist with times/days/meds on it. She had to check them off as she took them. No more taking them twice and ending up in la-la land floating off in the ozone somewhere. Didn't have to do that anymore once she had the routine finally memorized.

Just had a thought.......your last paycheck of the year is coming soon......it should have on the stub your year-to-date earnings on it. That proves how much you've made in the past year....they can take an average from that. Take as many of your paycheck stubs as you can, or can you get a printout from the company? You shouldn't be penalized for bigger than usual paychecks because of the sick leave, the charity care folks should know that situation won't last forever.

Try to have a good Christmas with the kitties. ((((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))))

i'm only on two pills...i just can't remember what they're called..i always say one starts with an S and one starts with F...and one of those is generic lasix. i just need to find the paperwork that's stapled onto my bag when they give it to me and put it in my notebook.

i need to get the prescriptions written up and handed to me again cuz i want to get one of the pills at walmart...i did a seach and supposedly i can get 3 months worth for $10....i swear i've got to be reading it wrong..$10 for three months together???? i pay more than $10 every month at cvs even with the 'discount' my 'plan' is supposed to give.

by the way, i don't know if i put this in here before or not...but for my bd this past year i commissioned a piece of art from a cartoonist at MoCCA ArtFest..this was when i was sick but before i knew how sick i was. I worked it up for a christmas card...at least a digital christmas card...and that's what my avatar is at the moment.

Your avatar looks great! I hope you find a good cheap plan for the pills. I have trouble even remembering to take one when I have to. May 2013 truly be the dawn of a new era for all of us...

well i found that one i can get at walmart i THINK three months worth for $10 where i get them now its more than that for one month. but i've got to wait until i get a new prescription i think...and get a ride to walmart to get it filled IF what i read was correct. the other one they doin't have a cheaper price for..the price is the same everywhere. right now the two of them together are around $50 a month.

as for the avatar it was my bd present to myself this year...the artist who did it as a commission was at the artfest this year and i was working the artfest on my bd. it was about the only thing i bought so i had the money...and it was before i found out what was wrong wiht me and all the bills came pouring in. i had wanted someone to do all the guys but nobody did...this year is on deviant art and i looked through her portfolio and liked hger work...we started talking ahout Nudie suits (cuz she had a drawing of a flaimingo in a cowboaw hat and boots) and she came up with this. LilRed and the BigGuy are characters in a series of stories i've been writing since this summer...somethin gto keep my head busy and my mind off all the crap that is going on right now. there have actually been a few people trying to get me to publish them...but i doni't think i have the time or energy to even try something like that.

i got a little manicure set from scotland and a couple little monkees things from one of the friends i met last April.
