Jeeze...I mean my doctor was worked up about the number...especially when it dropped to a 77...but I haven't really thought much of it to be honest.

I wasn't honestly all that concerned, but now maybe I need to be.

My doctor told me he'd personally make a call to the place that does sleep studies around here (a town 30 miles away)...they're tough to get appointments with I guess which is why he wants to set it up personally...they wont give him as much grief.

Not to keep making lame excuses...but I ended up skipping my last sleep study, because it was scheduled just as my mom passed away last may and things were just a complete blur to me for that week. I knew I had the appointment, and I knew I could've kept it...but I was just not with things at all that week and decided to skip it.

thats not a lame excuse buddy, sorry again about your mom

as a friend, you do need to be concerned about the blood oxygen

please do what it takes

stay on your tank for now, do not get lax with it

when we went through this a few months back i talked to sevral specialists and did hundreds of hours of legitimate research on it

the good news is it is very likely something you can fix

Am I being over sensitive to get annoyed when people do that? haha cause people tend to do that a lot with me when I try to explain it to them.
So I had to stop her and explain to her that EVERYONE experiences the symptoms of adhd throughout their lives...but what separates it for those who do, and those who don't have it...is the severity of those symptoms and the persistence of them. I don't just procrastinate once in awhile on certain unpleasant things...but then get myself up and move on. I procrastinated ALL the time on MANY things to the point where it severely disrupts my life.
I told her that I don't just experience the symptoms sometimes, but on a non-stop daily basis and that that it's been an absolute "disability" to me and has effected every single part of my life. It's not just a "once in awhile" thing for me that I can move on from.
No, it's not being oversensitive to be upset when someone who should know
better makes such a comment. Good on you for educating someone who is
supposedly already educated.

And no, it's not a lame excuse that you didn't do the sleep study right after
your mom died. I wish you'd realized the need to reschedule it though.

The finger oximeter thingy that checks your pulse and oxygen levels.

Gout is more common in older, overweight males, and poor diet does tend to
lead to being overweight.


Psycho ... I bought a pulse oxometer at Walgreens pretty cheaply. Just in case
you want to monitor your blood oxygen levels.

My doctor wrote a prescription out for one for me he's pretty sure my insurance will cover it for my (I'm INSANELY lucky to have the insurance I've had my entire adult life...they've covered almost everything ever for me).

...
I'm not entirely convinced it's gout after doing some research. The pain from gout comes from joints...the pain I was experiencing felt like it was radiating from the middle of one of my bones in my foot (as well as a couple of other places to a lesser degree). That's why I though my bone was broken or fractured.

I asked him a couple of times what I should do about my foot...but he didn't answer me. He just said he thinks it might be gout...I think he was more concerned with my oxygen and getting me another appointment for a sleep study set up to fuss over the foot for now. If it's still hurting, or if I have another flare up with the pain...I'll let him know again next time I see him.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

Ugh! I don't know what happened at the emergency room before we got there
but that nurse was totally on edge.

He came to get my daughter as I was filling out her paperwork for her and told
me he'd be back to get me in a few minutes. 20 minutes later paperwork was
all done and I was still waiting. I heard them talking down the hallway.

So I got up and went to help her answer questions. Who can remember clearly
when they are in a LOT of pain? Especially someone with adhd? We've always
gone to the doctor or the ER with each other to help answer questions or to
remember the instructions for aftercare.

The male nurse tried to get me to go back to the waiting room even though my
daughter said "Please, I want her here." I just stood my ground and said "I'm
the mommy and I'm staying." The guard from the front desk came to the door
and I said "You'll have to call the cops to make me leave." Total turnaround.
Nice as anything and taking time to explain things.

They both left the room for a minute and I didn't know what was going to
happen, but then the nurse came back and it was like Jekyll had turned to Hyde
(or whichever way that story went).

She had another kidney stone, may have passed it when we got back home.
I sure hope so. That is truly terrible pain. But it seemed different than her
previous kidney stones so until they did the CT scan I wasn't sure that she
wasn't dying.

DON'T EVER GET BETWEEN A MAMA BEAR AND HER CUB
Even when her cub is all grown up and a mama bear herself.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

((((((((((((((Big Mama Lunsy))))))))))))))

WTH? I don't understand why they wouldn't let you be there with her in the E.R. Maybe my hospital is different because it's (relatively) small in a small town...but I've never had issues being up in the E.R. with my mom or dad (who've both spent far too much time there).

So glad you stood your ground. So glad your daughter had you there! I don't believe you could've gotten my mom to back down either...and sometimes when I was in a hospital I was a bit embarrassed to have my mom there all the time with me...cause she'd 'baby' me a lot haha...but you know something? Deep down inside, beneath all the eye rollings and such...I longed for that. I needed that. I loved that.
I miss having my mom at my side when I'm sick. /sad

Thank you for being such a loving Mama Bear to your daughter Lun-Luns <3

You had a great mama, psycho! No wonder you miss her so much.


When the nurse came back the doctor was with him. After the doc left I told
the nurse that both of us have adhd so we always try to go with each other
to help remember things. He said it's good to have a smart phone so they
can look at your ICE list to see what meds you take in case you can't talk or
can't remember. But we left Jenn's phone at home in case Nove woke up or
we needed to call her.

The nurse said he had PTSD ... not sure how that's appropo to having adhd,
but he seemed to relate. And he had said something to Jenn about them having
been "slammed" earlier. So I do sorta wonder what happened before we got
there. All was quiet when we arrived. Emergency medicine doesn't seem like
a great choice of jobs if you have PTSD that bad?

Psycho your therapist was totally dismissive and invalidating. It shows that degrees dont always make you experts.

Ah well...I only see her 1 on 1 once a month as needed...I'm only seeing her cause I need to keep my case open so I can attend a group that just started at the facility (which she and several other staff members are running).

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

Here's another thing she said about ADHD that you'll like (hehe)...

She was going on about how upset she gets that so many parents are against letting their kids take stimulants for adhd...and how effective they are. And I was agreeing with her for the most part...but then she said something like...

If you give a kid a stimulant like adderall...if they do have ADHD you'll notice that same day how big of a difference it makes. If it doesn't make a difference, then that means they don't have ADHD.

I'm not kidding lol. She actually said this to me. >.<'

I told her I didn't agree with that at all because it took me 5 or 6 months to find a dose that worked for me with my adderall as an adult...and also not all meds work on people in the same ways and just because one med like adderall works for one person, doesn't mean it'll work with another.

I'm not upset about her being uneducated with adhd. I was upset with my old therapist for not being so...or not putting any effort into doing some research on it for me...but that's cause I had a long 10+ year professional relationship with her.
This new therapist being clueless isn't a big deal to me...I'm actually kinda looking forward to being able to help her gain a better understanding of what ADHD-PI is.
I feel better equipped now then I ever have on explaining what it is and how it effects me. lol there for the longest time after being diagnosed I didn't even know really wtf it was or how to explain it xP.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

Cleaning the budgie cage. long overdue. It's usually a 2 day job (for a spring clean. I clean the dishes and wipe surfaces more frequently) but since I've left it for so late I've only got 2h. Today is really the last day I can do it till summer when the parents come and look after fuzzling. I used to do a spring clean once a month. Now the last one was in April.

I know..I'm horrible. It's not like super filthy or anything because I wipe the poo off the surfaces, clean the lining and change the dishes every day but once a year for a spring clean is definitely not enough.

I'm genuinely thinking of trying to find a budgie sanctuary. They'd probably be happier in an outdoor aviary with lots of other budgies. I just feel so guilty about it. I've always said they are part of the family and I'd never give them away but I'm just not able to provide them with the care i think they need. I do the basics but I honestly think they'd be better off in a sanctuary. There are some good ones though they are rather far.

One of the budgies though has a chronic infection for which I need to give her antibiotic injections every day. The vet said it's not really infectious but I doubt anyone would take her like this. I don't think a sanctuary would risk it or want to take that job upon themselves. It's quite a difficult procedure.

Anyway gotta run. In already tired but that might be because I ate the rest of the cookies. 16 days I made it withiut having anything with added sugar...

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part IV

This may sound crazy (imagine that), but it helped my husband a great deal with pain when he was dealing with gout.

He's not overweight and eats a mostly healthy diet....his frequent beer after work...occasional "toddy" before bed...and his meat/seafood-heavy diet of days gone by seemed to be the culprits in his case, according to the doc he saw....but as with every other potential diagnosis available today, each individual and each doc's opinion can differ greatly.

Take the outer leaves of cabbage..purple/red is most suggested, but green works, too...wash them well, roll over the "spine"/stem part of it with a rolling pin or big round can or something so it will be pliable and more easily wrap around the foot, then wrap your foot, secure with an ace bandage or some press and seal, and sleep with it there overnight.

First time hubby got it, he went to the ER and was given meds that took a while to help ease the pain. Second time, he tried the cabbage leaves, slept soundly through the night, wrapped his foot again with some thinner leaves before going to work, just in case, and the pain didn't return.

I've tried it on my knee that I fell and injured at a concert and it's helped that pain a great deal, too. Food really is/can be medicine, in many ways. Hippocrates was truly onto something, apparently.

You can easily google "wrap cabbage leaves around foot for gout" for more info on why it's helpful and to see if it's something you'd like to try. I can't share the links here as most of them contain advertising/ads/other links and such. Wishing you wellness and pain relief.
