Sharing Myself – #Weekend Coffee Share


If we were having coffee, I would try sharing myself and my week with youI would acknowledge that this is really late as it is Monday evening after dinner, long past the weekend coffee share, and I am drinking a diet coke instead. It’s been a really rough week and weekend for me. First, my computer has not been working well and has been down a couple of times. Seems the mousepad on the laptop is sticking and not working and no matter what I do to clean it, I can’t get it to function much better except for an hour or so and then it is back down again.

If we were having coffee or diet coke, I would tell you that I have been ill also. I have a flare of my fibromyalgia with lots of pain in my back and abdomen and hips. Add to that my usual pain I have from arthritis in my knees and hips and all I want to do is take my pain medication and sleep to escape the pain. It’s not much of a life when I am having a flare up like this so I just take it a day at a time, pray, take my medication and sleep and blog what I absolutely have to blog.

If we were having coffee or diet coke, I would tell you that part of the reason for the flare up is emotional because I found out last week that I have to foreclose on my home in Florida. My ex-husband and his friend, John have been staying there but it has developed a serious leak under the slap part of the house and will cost way too much for me to fix it. This is expecially true because I am losing $1100/month from my disability next month so all I will have to live on is my Social Security check monthly. I have a small amount in savings but that is just for emergencies to pay for medicine at the end of the year when Medicare won’t pay because I’ve hit the gap period. So my gift to myself is a flare up of my fibromyalgia.

If we were having coffee or diet coke, I’d tell you I need to keep this short tonight since both my computer and I are not doing too well right now. I hope that your week has been a pleasant one and things are going well for you.

See you soon.
