Please Slow Down Life…

I have seriously had no time to blog. Life is going at the speed of umm…life.

In short I still haven’t started Humira. It’s such a process with the Ins Co. and the Co pay Co. to get on it. I’m now approved, fully covered and it will be ready for me (I hope) to pick up after the long weekend.

I won’t start until next weekend when Mr. CrankyPants is home. I don’t like to be alone when I start a new med.

We have been working hard to get our house ready to put on the market. We wanted it on by now but, we’re getting new counter tops put in and there was a two week delay do to a mistake the store made. I really hope they go in next week.

While we’ve been waiting for that, I’ve been doing some more painting. We bought new sinks and taps and cupboard door knobs.

We have some trim to put up in the bedroom I just painted, gardens to plant, a house to purge of as much as we can before the town clean up next weekend.

And the list goes on.

Three days ago you probably wouldn’t be surprised to hear I went into a bad flare. My neck is in so much pain I can hardly hold my head up. My whole back is in spasms. One day I let myself rest more then not but only because I couldn’t hold my head up without intense pain.

I’m still in a lot of pain but aside from a nap, I don’t have time to stop. I truly wish I did.

This coming week I have a docs, appointment, a dog to take to the vet and I’m sure more. It’s so hard to drive when I can’t turn my head but I’m the only one who can do this stuff. Mr. CrankyPants is in busy season at work, so he’s  working long hours. That means I have very little help at home and boy could I use it.

I have no family up here and even if I did, they wouldn’t be in my life. So…I have to keep going as though I’m well when I’m not. Fatigue is always a battle as well and I think I might be getting a cold.

Aside from all the above there’s also been some personal hard ass battles we’ve been fighting. I’ll just leave that there other then to say one of them involves a neighbour again a different one then the one next door. It’s so stupid what people will fight over.

I’m so tired. I want to know what peace feels like again. I just want to move to a place where home feels like home and I can be at peace when I’m home. Where I could actually sleep in my own bedroom again.

I will end by saying we’ve been enjoying a wonderful long weekend. The weather is perfect, Mr. CrankyPants actually got the entire long weekend off and as a result we are able to get a lot of things done. We’ve also enjoyed dinner out last night.

Mr. CrankyPants is in his happy place because he’s gotten to do some gardening. He’s a summer man through and through. And we’ve taken a nice walk in our local conservation area. So they may be small things but in a tough situation up here they are huge.

I hope you all have been able to enjoy your weekend to some degree.

P.S. don’t forget about my FB autoimmune disease support group. I’d love to see you HERE

Summer Days & Sunshine,

CrankyPants

  1. I am so glad to hear your weekend is going well! I am so sorry that you had to deal with so much pain. I really hope your new meds work well once you are able to start them. I completely understand the frustrations insurance companies can cause, but happy to read it worked out. I also understand the stress of selling a home. We are getting ready to put our townhouse on the market. It’s been difficult because of my health issues and trying to work, but my husband has been battling depression. It has been incredibly stressful. I wish you the best of luck, but please don’t forget to take care of yourself ♡

    1. Awe thank you Alyssa! Sorry you’re struggling too. Both you and your Hubby. I hope your house sell quickly and for what you want to get out of it. I hope the move is a good move for you. This weekend while busy has been a reprieve at the same time. Having Mr. CrankyPants home for the entire long weekend give me a break in some areas. For that I’m so thankful. It will be hard to have him go back to work Tues. I hope you’re able to get some rest in between the busyness and some fun too. ❤

      1. Thank you so much! I do know the townhouses next door sold for a pretty decent price, so if we can get close to what they got we will be happy! I hope you have a great week and take care of you!!!
