BETTY AS SHE IS NOW CALLED IS KEEPING ME BUSY!WE REALLY SHOULD HAVE NAMED HER FLOOZY AS IN FLOWER FLOOZY!SHE EATS MY FLOWERS!
ROSES, JASMINE, Santa Barbara DAISIES…………..she likes ALL OF THEM!
I tried to garden this weekend but my ASSISTANT kept running off with my flowers in her mouth!
IN THE 6-PACK!
Once she even carried my SPADE AWAY!
ALL of a sudden I am having a hard time going down to my knees and standing back up!I use to do it without even thinking!
Now it’s an EFFORT………again I feel I am too young for this CRAP to be happening!
AT WHAT AGE DID YOU NOTICE A CHANGE IN YOUR DAILY ACTIVITIES?
IT REALLY IS AN EYE OPENER!
ONE DAY YOU CAN DO………… AND THE NEXT NOT SO WELL!
“MOTHER……………BETTY IS EATING THE ROSES AGAIN!” Says Theodorable!
Pointing to the EVIDENCE!
“I TOLD YOU SHE WILL GET UPSET!YOU MUST STOP THIS NONSENSE!”Theodore exclaims!
BETTY SAYS “REALLY! It’s so FUN!”
“NOW LETS HAVE A CHAT BETTY!I HAVE LIVED HERE MUCH LONGER THEN YOU!”
“OKAY, I’M LISTENING Theodore!”Betty pipes up!
“SORRY ROSE!YOU WERE TOO PRETTY AND TASTEY!”
THEODORE SAYS:”I TRIED MOTHER BUT I DONOT THINK SHE UNDERSTOOD!
SHE IS STILL BITING MY EARS AND TAIL!”
THEODORE has been STOIC through out this whole process!AT first he disappeared for a week!Most likely thought she was visiting like the GRAND DOGS do on occasion!Then I found him and got him to come in the house.HE PURRS and does not BAT AN EYE!Betty is calm for a moment than gets too excited putting a paw on his back and bites his ear!AT that moment THEO says enough and GIVES BACK THE SAME HARSH TREATMENT THAT HAS BEEN BESTOWED ON HIM!
HOWEVER after THEODORE BITES he licks BETTY where he has bitten her!!!
A LESSON PERHAPS……….
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS ALL TO BE OVER AND WE ARE ONE HAPPY FAMILY!
ON ANOTHER NOTE I FINALLY CHANGED MY GENERAL PRACTITIONER!
TOOK ME LONG ENOUGH……….I KNOW.
I changed my doctor at KAISER as I was not getting THE CORRECT ANSWERS OR HELP I needed.
I’ll spare you the details of our last correspondence!
New doctor phones me at home and I ask her to repeat her last name…….(IT WAS LONG)
She comes back with “HOW MAY I HELP YOU?”
THESE CAPITAL LETTERS = NOT A NICE TONE.
MY CAPS ARE ENTHUSIASM.Just so you know the difference!
I said,” Have you looked into my file on the computer…..?”
I reply maybe you should do that as I have been sick for FIVE YEARS!Then we can make another phone appointment!
SHE BECAME VERY DEFENSIVE!
I was NICE in my request.Maybe a bit FRUSTRATED!
SHE SUGGESTED I HAD MADE THE APPOINTMENT THAT MONDAY MORNING.
My response. Made on Friday morning. It’s now MONDAY morning at 9:30 AM.
WHAT DOCTOR CALLS ANYONE LET A LONE A NEW PATIENT WITHOUT LOOKING UP THEIR MEDICAL INFORMATION?
I gave her a SYNOPSIS of my health AND THE REASON I HAD PICKED HER!She had gone to an OSTEOPATH SCHOOL which a few of YOU DEAR READERS have mentioned I needed to see in the past.I could not find B-12 lab tests under my name or medical number.LAST LAB KAISER DID was 2019 she said.MY OLD DOCTOR HAD TOLD ME THEY HAD BEEN DONE RECENTLY!THE MOST RECENT LABS I have HAD DONE WERE in January OF THIS YEAR 2021, but NO B VITAMIN.
MENTIONED TO her ADRENAL FATIGUE was a cause that the FUNCTIONAL DOCTOR had come up with she said KAISER will not call that legit. She knows if she puts a referral into an ENDOCRINOLOGIST they will not approve it!I told her I had seen an Endocrinologist four years prior and she too had ZOOMED in on THE ADRENALS and Vitamin B four years ago.I had done this on my own outside of KAISER.
I complained of neck pain. She told me I had spoken with a SPINE SPECIALIST a few months ago!I had no re-collection of that!
GEEZZZ is the brain FOG THAT BAD I THOUGHT?
After our phone call I went into messages……..YES I DID ON 9/11/2020!!!!!!!!!
That would have been about my osteoporosis as it was referencing C5 C6 with NO INSTABILITY in the neck.
We ended with her wanting to see me in person if the VERTIGO was still an issue.
I MADE THE APPOINTMENT WHICH HAPPENED on JUNE 2, 2021.
TO BRIEF YOU AS I HAVE NOT MENTIONED THIS I had my first VERTIGO EXPERIENCE on MARCH 29th, 2021.
WORSE than my EPISODES of losing my vision and feeling faint!
HAD TWO VERTIGO EPISODES IN ONE DAY on MAY 22,2021.
(I was washing the pots in the kitchen sink so was looking DOWN for awhile.
Second came closing French doors bending down to lock in place.)
ALWAYS the head is looking DOWN!
I HUNG UP THINKING WHAT A HORRIBLE CONVERSATION……………I was better off with MY DOCTOR BEFORE!
(Phone call lasted 13 minutes.)
TODAY IS JUNE 2, 2021 and I have had my visit with the NEW DOCTOR!
THIS NEW DOCTOR IS HANDS DOWN 10 TIMES BETTER then what I HAD EXPERIENCED FOR THE LAST 6 YEARS!
Let’s just say we got off on the WRONG FOOT……..Maybe me asking how to spell her name or asking if she had looked into my file?Who knows……….what matters is she listened and I had VERY HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE UPON ARRIVING.Perhaps, I was NERVOUS about meeting her face to face?NO NOT AT ALL………quite the contrary!I had absolutely zero HOPE of finding answers.So, this is a pleasant outcome!
She is sending me for an MRI of the BRAIN as the last one was done in 2017!
Referring me to an ENDOCRINOLOGIST.
Looked in MY EAR……..ONE EAR ONLY!Said it looked fine so hopefully THE VERTIGO has gone BYE BYE!
MEANWHILE,I’m SEEING A FUNCTIONAL DOCTOR AS WELL…………………who has me on all kinds of herbal remedies.
My FAVORITE being THE SEAWATER GLASS VIALS!
HER DIAGNOSIS of Me:
Kidneys were off and lungs were congested.Heart was OKAY!
SO, was digestion!
A theory of a virus being at the base of my skull causing inflammation and she mentioned a hormonal imbalance but did not specify which hormone.
Blood pressure was okay.
Except for it going DOWN when I sat up quickly from a flat lying position.
ADRENAL GLAND WAS STRESSED.
I AM TO eat Dinner for Breakfast because she thinks that by eliminating processed grains TOAST & CEREAL my system will start to heal.I am to EAT ZERO GLUTEN FREE ITEMS and NOTHING WITH SUGAR!If you start looking at labels EVERYTHING HAS SUGAR!Even the non-diary yogurts…..and vinegar as well!
(SO, WE ARE BACK TO FOOD AGAIN BEING THE CULPRIT.HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I BEEN THROUGH THIS?)
She found my second vertebra was inflamed and I have a virus!
HOW ABOUT THAT FOR A DIAGNOSIS IN A FIRST MEETING!!
I ACTUALLY HAVE HOPE WITH THIS LADY for the FIRST TIME IN YEARS!
I will let you know how I progress…………
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT BY BUYING A FOUNDATION/CONCEALER FROM INSTAGRAM THAT I WOULD SEE MYSELF LOOKING BACK AT MYSELF ; SCROLLING THROUGH FACEBOOK!
I KNOW I DIDNOT USE A FILTER!
I seem to have some pink lines showing up?!!
The photo on the Left is from a short video I did for them.
The photo on the Right is a SELFIE I took after the video with make up on.
I ADORE THEIR PRODUCTS.
THE CONCEALER is used as a foundation and put on with a brush.
The more you use it the softer your skin becomes and this I can VERIFY AS ABSOLUTELY TRUE!
IT’s a small tube so GREAT for Travel whenever we get to do THAT ACTIVITY AGAIN!
The price point is VERY GOOD AS WELL……..$39.97 for a tube.
A LITTLE BIT GOES ALONG WAY!
THIS COMPANY is a TAP AWAY! Fiera Cosmetics TAP HERE!
THEY ONLY SELL FIVE PRODUCTS!
Which I like.
I have tried ALL their products except the neck cream which is en-route to me this moment
SO, I can report in on that say in a months time?
Would you like to hear about THAT REPORT?
I have had a difficult time so far this year………..with Health issues and just not feeling right.
I hope with SUMMER upon us that will change!
MY ITALIAN is headed to MAINE this weekend for a wedding which I had to back out of………….
LET’S SEIZE THIS SUMMER WITH A HAT, A CAFTAN AND A BASKET BAG!
Don’t forget to be WILD AND WONDERFUL!
HAVE FUN PEOPLE……….FIND JOY IN THE DAY TO DAY TASKS!
I know it can be hard sometimes!
PS. The ENDOCRINOLOGIST CALLED!I HAVE A VIDEO APPOINTMENT TOMORROW!
ANY QUESTIONS I SHOULD ASK………….I SO VALUE YOUR OPINIONS AND EXPERTISE!
WOMEN HELPING WOMEN AND A FEW MEN TOO!
THANK YOU WONDERFUL READERS!
