WOW, Time Is Flying

I can't believe we will be leaving in less than a month. Where did the summer go? Oh, wait, I know, it went to remodeling houses and ugly scabby rashes and terrible physical pain and losing a best friend in the blink of an eye.

I am kinda glad this summer is over, it was a very hard summer to live through. Now we are gearing up for the trip across the country to Arizona for the winter.

I am going to do a quick weekend trip to Mississippi for a family reunion and then I will be in list making mode.

It is going to be an interesting weekend for Jay. Not only will he have Izzie, he will have my sister's dog Heidi for the weekend. Now that will probably be a story to write about.

Saw the Dr. today and we decided I will continue to use the Oxytocin slow release with a quick release supplement to handle the pain going forward. Possibly some trigger point injection in my elbows when I get to Arizona. When I get back here in the spring I am going to a Pain Specialist to see if there is anything else I can use to get off the narcotics.

It is going to be an interesting winter in Arizona staying out of the sun. My skin is slowly starting to improve but , I will have to be vigilant about the sunscreen and staying out of direct sunlight.

But you know, you do what you have to do, right?


  1. Hi Joyce, Reading this post made me think this is what I love about blogging. What I love is the way you are you, meaning there is nothing pretentious about your blog and I so much respect that. I feel like I know you by the things you share.

    Anyway, I'm glad you have something to deal with the pain for now and I hope you won't have to always depend on the stronger stuff. Have a great family reunion!

  2. Joyce, thing sound just a tiny bit better for you and that makes me happy! I have been reading about Cymbalta for pain...it does seem like they are touting it more for pain than anti-depressant now. I do know my sister took it for six months finally...she just had no other choice. It helped her alot and she no longer takes it...just a thought...

  3. The months to come are going to be great for you, I just know it. You will meet new friends, keep in touch with the old ones; and we will Skype on Sundays. Just think positive and take it one day at a time. Love you.

  4. Oh darlin - I'm really too exhausted comment much, other than to say you are pretty amazing. Look at all you have had to handle, and look how great you are at it.

    Hugs. Really. :)
