Red face Real Life Meeting. kinda backfife on me :O

Real life meeting today, for extra aid, it when well but, the stress backfired on me, I've been following a something on local transportation and were we've move to good thing, we have extra help for we are going to need it Weston votes to end bus service http://www.wausaudailyherald.com/art...81&located=rss
Its the area only line, so when the bus service ends we are going to have to depend on the suport goup we are working with for riders for both Dan J. and I. We don't drive. Good thing we got back up.

Well it when a bit better than I hoped, outside of the dang stress, its level trigger a batch 'attack' in which one spot in my brain miss fires, they know were not why it dose it. Irking, and its shows in a good/bad way, for its making my own balance bad, if I understand things, I can get a loan cane with four legs on it base to aid me till my body gets it self together, I'm aware of what is going on around me, just can't respond, and only thing is anti something, and rub a spot to stop the dang 'attack'.

I'm wiped out, tired, and got a migraine, so, we are hopeful to get more help!
Its also making the translating to thinking gone between kinda like Lessa in All the Weyrs of Pern.

At least you have support and can find rides. Focus on that. Some people don't even have that much.

Hope it all works out. It sounds like the support group will be helpful.

Yes, I might just have tap into them more, then we were thinking, but they do have folks here in the complex, six building and they are in one bullding on the north side of us, we are in the south part.

Two staffer live only a few biocks in either way, so if we need HELP we can call them, another group I'm a member of is well to find out they can help blind outreach center, and before this medication side effect hit me, I asked for a meeting.

http://shop.aph.org/webapp/wcs/store..._11051#addinfo

This is one thing that might just help me out, evern more than I thought.
More later.

Bingo, I found it, what my father has Dupuytren's contracture http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dupuytren%27s_Contracture

Its something related to his Polish roots, ever he couldn't say what it was. Something about being, second generation to be born here in the USA, after moving from the 'Old Country-Poland' Also I think, a freind of ours had it too, she came from the 'Old Country-German' Before the war, she was 100 and passed away shortly after turning it.

The cold weather here effects him, badly,

I just hope, that my own, bloodline is good, for its a rare one.

Re: Real Life Meeting. kinda backfife on me :O

Spoke with my case manager today, and she said that she would working on getting me a paid assessment, for my low vision, and this new place, I'm hoping to pick up a few more hours to get the rest of stuff moved out of our old place.
Also this area is kinda hard for me to navigate, even if I know kinda were I'm at. My low vision, combined with the stress trigger problem, making it hard to get around.
More later.

I have a 'loan' of a support cane, marked in white and red low vision, its not fold able, but I think I shall get use if I have too, they do have foldable type, and willing to help buy one if I needed after the loan.
I had a bad attack, last week with the snow 'lighting' storm, 'light blinding me' and Dan J. had to hold me to keep my self up. I have a friend that has two canes, her 'seeing long white cane' and her support cane. She reminds me of Lerri, for she like her stubborn.

Red face Re: Real Life Meeting. kinda backfife on me :O

Well government backfire with money on Dan J. my other half. Has boomerang big time. For two months last June/July we had problems, starting with one check not getting covered 'spooked us' I end paying for most of what we needed, and now they say they misread how they re did his benefits, and now we have extra money. For we combine our money to share expenses easier. i also was trying out a health supplement, which was aiding me in many ways, so I stopped for two months, now i have to rebuild it back into my system.

This has some stuff related to other threads but some also related to how things are going.

We have some odds and ends that can help out more way then one.
