Improvement is slow, but there is improvement and I feel so much better. I still suffer from mental impairment and that is scary. I hate having to have everything explained to me. I was a straight A student and could have been valedictorian if I cared enough about it. Now I am lucky if I figure out what 2 plus 2 is.
I have to ask for my pills since the psyche nurse at the hospital told my children not to let me have them on my own. I have to ask all the time. What those dumb drs and nurses don’t realize and I talked this over with my psychiatric nurse who does my meds and she agrees.
- no one watches me take the pills, I could be saving them
- I have used a knife before
- I can wrap my car around a tree or into a bridge abuttment
- We have tall buildings around here
I am easing back into the computer. I will restart my devotions again soon, maybe even tonight.
I got my insurance set up, but this year it will be more expensive. I have it, but after paying for it won’t be able to use it much. Stupid. Hopefully I won’t lose my extra help from the state.
This year the government gave us a raise in SSDI. None last year. I got 4 dollars and part B Medicare went up $5.00. Wow! Should I grovel at Trumps feet. God only knows what he will do. My son finally got insurance through Obamacare, he paid the fine last year. From what I hear Trump is going to get rid of Obamacare as soon as possible.
I am freezing. I am also at the end of the heating system. I will have to get a new electric blanket. My dad put it down to 66 degrees because of the bill. Shiver.
