I went to my uncle Ralph's service yesterday and I'm trying to process all that happened! It was great to see cousins I haven't seen in so long, just trying to think of what was said and done is so hard for this survivor!
KJ was over and it was a great home visit! I usually create a notepad of things I could use help with but work my memory trying to remember it all without referring to it! This is part of always trying to work my brain! Oh and I do well with this too! I had to call my care manager at CCA about some dental work that was denied! I don't have her email so I had to call, now I gutta WAIT for a return call! KJ thinks she's got it, she'll mail it to me then I'll send a mail to my care manager and have nothing else I can do about this matter until she responds :)!
I got in to a discussion on a friends page about Mikael McCarthy being found guilty of 2nd degree murder! I just believe anyone who hurts a defenseless child should be persecuted to the furthest extent of the law! Now I gutta do dinna.
Today I've got a podiatrist appt. then Peopod is delivering my food order btw 5-7 pm! This survivor is still in mega pain :(! Hopefully I get rid of some this morning but I'm still bothered immensely by my busted ribs :(!
I'm still dealing with mega pain :(! I've still gutta get to Wg's to get my vitamins, alive and v c 1,000 mgs! I did book all my trips for the week today and this wks trips cost almost $30! I've got a podiatrist and dentist apt this wk! I am a higher functioning tbi survivor! I'm living a very successful independent life and I know how to use my supports and tools that keep me independent:)!
I was reading a fb friend's page and they were talking about "the ride" so I had to chime in my opinions! This guy had to use it to get to his appts and had said how unreliable it is! I asked what he has for ins. He is a vet and on vets insurance but he's gonna get Mass health so I told him they would pay for trans to and from docs appts! My experience though it's not any more reliable but it will be an option for him! Now to make a late dinna.
I've been busy today! First I needed to add value to my "the ride" account to book the rest of my trips for the week! Then I had pt and worked on walking without an assistive device (walker) and did well! Then did laundry after putting it all away lied down on my bed and zoned out for a few hours, took a much needed nap! I fired up the ac and it's very comfortable here :).
Today hics had the spring fling @ Florian hall in Dorchester Ma. I couldn't do as much dancing as I would have liked to cause of my busted ribs and sore toe but I did get some! KJ owned the dance floor! She never got down from it. I was a little disappointed the dj didn't play many songs from my playlist but still good tunes! An old staff member came too! DM my former case manager! It was great to be able to talk with the man responsible for me regaining my freedom :)!

Tomorrow I've got the spring fling at florian hall in Dorchester Ma. These are some tunes I wanna hear :)
I had an ot and nurse come here today! Ot was an evaluation! My therapists just try and think of ways of making my independent life easier! These people know it must be very hard for me to do all that I do so they offer ideas and show me products to help me with my struggles :)!
I've been to the scooper bowl in Boston today. That was so much fun, all the ice cream I can eat and hics paid :)! I've got some issues getting a med for these sharp rib pains! They can't call the script in to Wg's cause it's a narcotic, it's ready at granite medical but I'd have to book rides here to get it! All I've got to ease my pain from busted ribs is Motrin and Tylenol! I'm hoping I can control my brain to ease it now :(! Now I gutta make something to eat.
I've been busy this morning. KJ was ova for a home visit then a pt came over to evaluate me. It seems after I had that bad fall my insurance wants to make sure I'm safe! Renee is gonna start coming on Mondays @12.30pm! That's great, it is another way to work on me :)!
I've got some orders being delivered today! I think one is coming via UPS, maybe all! I hope so cause the driver has a key to the blding and leaves the package by my apartment door! My ribs still are causing me a lot of pain :(!
I had a nuked pizza for dinna :)! Ive got two deliveries I'm told are coming tomorrow!One from Walmart.com, and one from amazon.com! I was speaking with MR and she told me that her computer got taken at the group home she lives at. She has a birthday coming, I was able to get a notebook at Wm for $115! Now I gutta get over there to give it to her. I've got a cordless drill with a bit set and Amy Zelmer's book coming from Amazone!
I've been resting my ribs today watching the sox win! I can't really get comfortable though! I try and find a position that's comfortable then move slightly and get these awful sharp pains in my rib cage :(! Now to make some dinna.
My ribs are still causing me a lot of pain:(! I've taken a vike (pain med) hopefully that will help! It sux though, I've got a minimally fractured rib on my right side then four busted ribs on my left! Life is a struggle but I know struggles! I've asked a friend to go to Lenard Skinner with me but no response yet.
I'm still in pain from my busted ribs :(! I sleep okay though thanks to a 800mg IBUPROFEN! Today is some anniversary of the Beatles sgnt peppers album! It's weird, I remember it 1st coming out and I have issues remembering an hour ago :(!
I missed my podiatrist appointment this morning now my right little toe is causing me lots of pain! I can deal with this though, rib pain makes my brain focus on my ribs. The nurse was over and cked all my vitals, they were all good, my breathing sounded great too so I'm on the mend :)! I took a scoot to the store too!
I had an appointment with my podiatrist this morning but my rib pain was making it so it is way too painful to even sit still:(! I'm praying I get some sort of relief soon! I do have to get to the store but I've got a nurse coming at 10.30 am!
