@hopeful33250 I am grateful to you for introducing me to biggeekdad as it has provided me with lots of laughter as well as some helpful information. This morning I viewed "The Three Little Pigs" by comedian John Branyan. I laughed and still chuckle at the thought of it. Sounds so like me at times. His delivery is excellent. Worth the watch if you have not seen this one. Thanks again cyber friend!!!

@candrgonzalez Can totally empathize with the spine pain. I love drawing and painting and can only do so for short periods of time on a good day. Hoping to get scheduled for a rhizotomy in the near future for my neck pain.

@gingerw It is interesting and amusing how we condition ourselves. Chuckling to myself.

@imallears I like extra dark chocolate and find it sweet. I like making chocolate, chia pudding. Sometimes I even make it with all natural peanut butter. Tastes like a reeses cup and no sugar added!!!

@hopeful33250 Hello back. If it were not for cleaning and keeping things done I surely would feel an utter and complete failure. My daily goal is to keep clutter off of my counters and sink. At least I can see where I have been. At times it seems pointless. Seeing clutter take over is horrifying for me. Laundry is my downfall as I use the community laundry and dread the chore of guarding my laundry as well as cleaning up after others. Maybe they are depressed too. thankful I can do what I can for now.

Sun, Aug 25 7:28pm · Staying Motivated for the Long Haul in Healthy Living

Had the last treatment of BCG and now another biopsy on 9/30. As many know it is the waiting. Trying to keep busy and attempting to be motivated about something. Thyroid has dropped to the bottom of the chart. I thought the TSH had plummeted again. Keep requesting The new dosage. I have been doubling the thyroid medication I have on hand. Throwing up my hands in that "I give up" and nigh on to appearing there in person and realize that is pointless as well. This slipshod/slapdash way of dealing with patients is absurd!! Feeling like I have made a quantum leap backwards and motivation is a challenge. Also in that "why bother?" frame of mind.
At least I have stopped by for a while. A start…

@hopeful33250 We played with the paper mache scenes I have made for his reptiles, etc. Yesterday he incorporated the military to help with the invasion!! I so enjoy his imagination and company. Gives me incentive to keep trudging onward.
@sandytoes14 You are spot on with my pleasure in my little guy. He is so accepting of my limitations. Heartwarming.
