One-Liner Wednesday & #JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 17, 2018


One-Liner Wednesday & #JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 17, 2018

Since today is Wednesday, I challenge you to make your JusJoJan post a one-liner. If you don’t care to, or if you’ve already written your post, no problem. Remember, with One-Liner Wednesday you can write anything – it’s only a prompt to write one line, not necessarily to keep to the same theme as mine. 

 

Medical conditions getting worse and had to get an earlier appointment for the liver condition.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 16th, 2018


#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 16th, 2018

Your prompt for January 16th, 2018, brought to you by the multi-talented Cheryl, is “Contemplation.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Cheryl at her blog, “The Bag Lady” to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://rugby843.blog/

I spend a lot of time contemplating things I shouldn’t be. Some things are best not contemplated. Things like my drs declaration that my liver is in a life-threatening condition. I can’t stop thinking about it. I am just in the first step, an abnormal live test. From my research there is a lot it could be and it might not be anything except I might have to stop all pain medication. I am in so much pain while taking the meds I can’t imagine what it would be like without them. And then there is the big “C” (cancer) and and a lot inbetween. I don’t drink so that should eliminate those possibilities. I was diagnosed probably close to 10 years ago with a fatty liver. I know all this contemplating over something I have no control over at this point is pointless. I have an appt with the gastroenterologist on Feb 6. There the journey will begin.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 14th, 2018

Your prompt for January 14th, 2018, brought to you by a new-to-me blogger, Itinerary Planner, is “Ultimatum.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Itinerary Planner at her blog, “Travel Itineraries: Travel the World for Less” (sounds good to me!) to read her post and say hi! Here’s her link:  https://traveltinerary.com/

 

I detest ultimatums. When I was in Kindergarten we had to drink our milk or (here comes the ultimatum) we could not go out at recess.

Now everyone in my class, but me drank their milk and went outside everyday. One teacher of course had to stay with me. Everyday I refused to drink the milk and everyday the teacher and I sat inside. Didn’t bother me I am not an outdoors person and milk makes me sick to my stomach.

They finally contacted my mother about my not drinking the milk and keeping a teacher inside with me. My mother knew I didn’t drink milk (even as an infant) and after wondering about the stupidity of the teachers she finally told them I was allergic to it. From that point on everyone was told that I was allergic to milk to preclude them from starting another situation like that. I DO NOT DRINK MILK!

The only way I will drink milk is if half the container is chocolate. Just smelling milk makes me want to puke.

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan Daily Prompt, Jan. 13th, 2018


The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan Daily Prompt, Jan. 13th, 2018

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is as follows: read closely. When you’re ready to sit down and write your post, look to the publication (book, newspaper, permission slip from your kid’s teacher, whatever you find) closest to you, and base your post on the sixth, seventh, and eighth word from the beginning of the page. Enjoy!

Well the 3 words just happened to be on my dr’s notes and instructions. “Advocare DelGiorno Endocrinology.” I already got my words out on this dr visit for Friday’s JusJoJan so I haven’t much to say. I did notate his new instructions and put it in my purse for when I am out.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 12th, 2018


#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 12th, 2018

Your prompt for January 12th, 2018, brought to you by Fandango, is “Aggravation.” (EDIT: I screwed up–the word is “Aggravate”! Apologies to Fandango and anyone who has already written their post.) Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Fandango at his blog, “This, That, and the Other” to read his post and say hi! Here’s Fandango’s blog: https://fivedotoh.wordpress.com/

Right now I am aggravated by my doctor. He got my bloodwork this morning and then blurted out that the results on my liver were life-threatening. My heart just about stopped, all I could utter was “WHAT!” He realized too late that he shouldn’t have said that and especially the way he said it.

He didn’t mean I was just going to drop dead right there, but the results were undetermined as to cause and that they could be life-threatening if they were determined to be cancer for one thing. Hours later and I still cry every time I have to talk about it or permit it to enter my mind.

Chances are it is nothing. I have had issues with my liver before and it was nothing. Too much NSAIDS could be a cause and I take an NSAID for arthritis and now percocets (also mentioned as a possibility) are taken every 6 hours for months now.

I contacted the rheumatologist and asked about my arthritis medication. I need more and with the liver reading he won’t give them to me. He told me to stop taking them for 2 – 3 weeks and retest. Monday I will try to get in to see the gastroenterologist as he was the dr I was referred to.

Those of you who know me, know that my medical health both mental and physical is not good and this is just one more thing to pile on. My anxiety is rising and that is not helping my diabetes.

My diabetes is completely out of control. He just changed my insulin so that it is based on the actual carbs I eat.

#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 11th, 2018


#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – January 11th, 2018

Your prompt for January 11th, 2018, brought to you by the very wordy Jim Adams, is “Humiliate.” Use it any way you’d like in your post. And make sure you visit Jim at his blog, “A Unique Title for Me” to read his post and say hi! Here’s his link:  https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/

When I think of humiliate I think of the time I was first pregnant and had made a summer maternity top to wear swimming. i didn’t realize that the elastic would stretch in the water and when the wave hit me, I came up and my top went down and there was one of our male friends.

I ducked back down searching for the top of the top so I could pull it up, but the waves in the ocean were hindering me. Now that is humiliation.
