Hello there.

So, I know it has been quite some time since I have even posted on this site. But I have had a lot going on in my life for the last few months.

I have been trying to see my Dr. since September but since my job doesn’t give you time off for that it hasn’t been easy. I have made...

I am so sorry to read. I know how difficult doctors can be and i wish you all the healthy vibes i can send. And that things get better for you

I moved down here primarily for medical reasons, but the harsh reality of financials also kicked in as well. We're at the point that dad basically sits in bed all day and doesn't help much at all anymore. He flat said he's not comfortable handling the dogs if one of us goes anywhere. He won't do things that would help the household because it's not how He wants to do it, even though it wouldn't be a bad direction to go (two houses both "breaking" equally and we live in one). I couldn't attempt to move out if I wanted to both financially and the sanity of mom. I do quite a bit around the house as well as probably more than I'm supposed to outside the house. It's appreciated, but it also tends to cost me every now and then (new tools, etc). I remember the first time we moved Back to the states. once we got past year 3 we were all at each other's throats because we were cooped up in the same house. I can't believe we survived the remaining two years after that. It's not quite the same now, but he still pisses everyone off 'cause he's bull headed.

Well I have been super busy for the past month.

I started a full time job on June 18th. So I went from having all kinds of time on my hands to have none at all hahahha! I love my new job. I'm a call center operator :D Our computer systems haven't been working all that well. We also don't even have...

how are you doing?

Hello all.

Well a lot of things have happened in the last few weeks. I've gotten a full time job. I love it. It's a call center jobs. We have to dress nice but we can have tattoos and I can keep my red hair. I'm also still dog sitting at the same time. The extra money is going to help. But...

I'm super glad you like our call center job. I did that for 4 years. Loved it and hated it at the same time. I really hope they figure out your back and make you all better, stronger, faster. hehehe Love you! <3 
motherofdragons:
Good luck! If you get scared or anxious at all ask them to give you Versed. Don't be afraid to ask. Everyone gets nervous. It can be loud. 

I have been MIA for a bit now. I have been crazy busy for the past few weeks. I just finished a pet sitting job on Sunday and I start a new one on the 5th. I'm also in physical therapy three times a week. So far the physical therapist says I'm making progress. Though my spine was moving better, today it was...

Yeah, to save power, my AC is set to no higher than 80, but it sure doesn't Feel like it. >.<

Thoughts and prayers are with you. As for the heat, I'm just the opposite, anything under 60 and I hide under the comforter. :) 

So this week I started physical therapy. The first day was kinda pointless. She just poked at my back for a few min then said she wanted to see me three times a week. Yesterday was my second appointment but my actual fist session. She worked with my shoulders and gave me exorcises to do at home. So far the pain seems to have calmed...

I'm not sure exactly what it is you have but I have scoliosis. It doesn't usually cause much pain or discomfort but I can definitely feel my back and shoulder are twisted. Sounds like you've got the worse deal, hope it's fixable. I don't think mine is 😕
pyromethious:
*snickers @ "but my actual fist session"*  I wish they'd pay for more than 12 lifetime sessions for me. Even then they only pay part of it. :-/  Overall, movement does tend to help out the muscles, but I prefer water working to dealing with gravity while I stretch n stuff.

Well tomorrow is my last day of pet sitting with Mr. Henry. While I don't mind sitting him, I'm glad to be done. I miss my bed and my Xbox.

Also I have no idea what I did but I messed up my back. I tried to just chill and take it easy but after a week in pain I couldn’t handle...

Have you been sleeping on the couch? I have a bad habit of sleeping in poor positions or simply laying in poor positions and then it hurts like hell later
sugarcunt:
It started before I started sitting 

This is Henry.


He is the fur baby I'm currently pet sitting. He's the sweetest little thing. He's super easy to take care of. He does take meds but they're no big deal. I'm only sitting him for a week. So that makes him an even easier client lol. After this I'll have three weeks until my next sitting

That's what I figured too lol

So I'm a week in to pet sitting. I have a week left.

He thinks life's too short for matching socks. He now comes when I call him and loves to sit behind me on the couch.

This is Mia

Oh sure, you get the fun job. ;-) 

Well tomorrow starts my busy season for dog sitting. I’m pretty much booked until august. I have like a week break in between each client. I’m glad to be making some sort of money :). It’s also kind of stressful. I have to continue to look for a regular type job and I have some tests set up for jobs during this time...

Good luck with job hunting. I'm a bit the same with my birthday these days. Become a bit introverted over the last few years. I might be a bit late on this post but i've been away on holiday

So let’s see.......

I saw the dr on Wednesday and I got new meds. Usually my meds are free. While that seems really cool and all my actual Dr visits are expensive as hell. I have so much debt because of the visits alone, having my meds completely covered by my crappy insurance helps a great deal. That being said. only one of the...

Hopefully they'll kick in and you can score some income in the process.

I always love/hate getting new meds... or even new batches of my meds...  had a checkup recently with a skin doctor, who observed that I'm currently taking 7 times the recommended dosage for celebrex... did i mention i have twelve broken vertebrae?  I wanted to respond "no, really? I had no idea!" ..  -- good luck with your dog-sitting and job hunt!!!
