Insomnia or is my sleep schedule off?

Once I started to limit my activity’s, I started sleeping all day and waking up in the middle of the night after everyone else is gone to bed. Not spending as much time with my daughter as I would like but even she knew I either needed to rest or go to Urgent Care. I decided to rest. This is day three or four days of basic bed rest. Luckily her father can make sure I have everything I need up the stairs.

The swelling is almost completely gone at this moment. The more I try to do, the more swelling I have and the pain from just a slight touch is too much for me. I can’t really even touch my own foot and my daughter stepped on it and so did her father. Of course from the sounds I made, they were very apologetic. They were accidentally stepping on it or laying on it. I haven’t really done much elevating for the swelling. I have been doing everything from the bed. It is still swollen from trying to sit up in the daytime. I am going to prop myself up with some pillows and then elevate Saturday and Sunday. I am ready for the game but have no idea what we are cooking. Living with a diabetic and a child with food allergies makes dinner a huge decision since we all need to be on different diets.

My weight is up instead of down for a change. I feel better but I need a lot of stuff to take care of my health properly and it cost money. I am going to take it one day at a time. Since he quit his job, he is home all the time temporarily. He feels better as a person but taking a loss in income at anytime is hard. We got big plans but I don’t want to have to struggle. Even though it would be for a moment. Like we got all this chicken but nobody wants to eat it. Need some more recipes with chicken in them. With him here, the heat turned down and the window be open. The light be on all the time and I can barely get to this Playstation. We are adjusting and luckily he is looking for work instead of just laying around all the time. He basically quit his job when his boss replaced him with his uncle. I don’t blame him but miss the income.

I am back to braiding hair after years of retirement. I only braid my hair and my daughters’. She likes beads, what they call BoBos, and berets. I don’t do beads and if I did, I would need a beading tool that comes with the beads. My hair is already braided thankfully. Her hair is clean but sucks up moisture very quickly. And our hair is growing. Once I wash my hair and add the oils to it, it stays moist. My daughter has eczema and her hair and scalp stays dry. I changed my Twitter profile picture to the hairstyle that I want to try. But by me not using too many products in my hair, I don’t have to wash it every two weeks like I used to which makes things easier for me. I am considering adding some weave to it soon. I want some color and the person who was dying my hair is too busy. I could try to do it myself and let it come out in more than one blended color but I will wait until it gets dirty to do the dye. Plus the dye that I am going to use is a powder which makes it more intimidating. I need a list of all the stuff I need to do it and you can get the list of things you will need from the website. Why powder you ask? Because I want Strawberry Blonde and I couldn’t find that color online when I was shopping except in the powder form. Braiding my daughter hair would be easier if she would let me freestyle but at her age, she wants specific hair styles like I mentioned before. Either way, I don’t have to stand up and braid since she is a kid and I need to get her some hair products from the beauty supply store.

The reason why I was posting so much about the games we are playing was because that is all I have been doing while in the bed. Playing games and writing. I posted a few poems here and noticed that this may be the wrong place to put that kind of poetry. What they call dark and explicit. No one liked the two that I did put up but I know a lot of people that enjoy reading my poems. When I had this site the first time, I posted a lot of poetry. I am working on a book of poems by me that has a warning label on it that says Mature like these games and CD’s do. The book is coming along fine but I haven’t been working on it at all this past week which was a rough one but it went by very fast. I ran out of cigars, right after I ran out of Pepsi. Single income family now basically until further notice and yes I am on him but also giving him some time to rest and think. He is a lot easier to deal with now that he is no longer working for that lady. He is drinking less too. I didn’t realize how bad it was for him until he quit. It was like he was finally able to exhale or something. We got our worries but not that many. These bills need to be paid right away as we all know.

For the new followers of this blog, thank you and please look around the site a bit. There is a lot of missing content but not because we are lazy. Because we have been busy and now we were resting up for today. I do not feel like going anywhere but I have that appointment today and really can’t reschedule it. So while I am out today, I am going to grab something to smoke on for a week or so. I know the doctor is probably going to tell me to take them opioids for the pain in my feet but I would rather smoke which they do and don’t have a problem with. However, my lungs and heart sound good. My thyroid test should be in a few weeks because I will not over book myself this month. That’s probably where the swelling came from. Doing too much running here and there in this cold. And it is not going to warm up anytime soon. It is 10 degrees right now with snow on the ground. I have to figure out how to get my feet into a pair of shoes but they are so sore that I am scared to try on some shoes and walk in them even in my own house. I have two pairs of comfortable shoes but I am taking my house shoes with me just in case. If the doctors are worried about inflammation, they will prescribe something like Motrin or Naproxen. I prescribe myself with small doses of marijuana for this pain. Just need to get up and go. I will be sure to wear my glasses so they can’t tell my eyes are red. Good morning to whoever took time to read this. It’s going to be a busy day for me.

 

 

 

Me – I am a real person

I wear a lot of scarves. All different colors and designs. I also keep my Natural Hair braided during the night. I made this in 5 minutes using Google photos. Everyone liked my hair in that picture but it is too cold to wear it like that. Just wanted to share. I am using my phone to post while the AT&T Primetime tablet is on charge. It still hasn’t ran out of energy. I put it on charge twice now. For shorter post, I just use my Galaxy Note 5. I love my phone but it is old and the battery will not stay charged even if I am not even using it. I can file an insurance claim but it would be a waste of money at this point. Almost time to upgrade to the Note 8. I can’t wait.

Check out “Statusbrew: Schedule Posts, Know Twitter Followers”

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=me.unfollowers.droid

This is the app I use to manage my Twitter account. I think you can get a free trial or you have to upgrade to paid. It works very well and you can schedule your tweets. Something that I like about this app. If someone unfollows you, they appear on a list of new unfollowers. You can simply use the app to unfollow them. It also has a feature for your fans. That way you can follow them back. It works with other Social Media accounts as well.

If you like Twitter and need to manage it, download this app in the Google Play Store.

Good Morning

I can’t take it anymore. I need to go to the Urgent Care and have them look at my feet and ankles. The swelling is worse than it was. The picture was just me playing with the camera on this ATT Primetime tablet. It takes great pictures and I like it so far. When you just basically on bed rest, you find things to do while in the bed. Of course you can watch movies and use your devices but you can’t sit or stand too long. Walking is even worse and I may not be able to put my boots on and go out in the snow.

I don’t know how much snow we have because I was resting all day yesterday. I had an appointment with the doctor but she was sick. I have to reschedule but I need medical evaluation right now. I am not scared but do wonder all day long what the cause of the swelling is. Rather than laying around and resting all day, I need to go see about my feet. They feel almost numb. I soaked them in hot water this morning really early and put some Peppermint oil on my feet and ankles. They feel better right now but you can’t deny something is wrong.
There are a lot of post here but like I said, trying to keep new content is easier if you schedule your post. I can even schedule a good morning post to Twitter everyday. I haven’t really been able to change all the settings on this tablet yet. I was so tired that when it arrived, they opened it and took a peek. I was sleeping so well again that they tried not to disturb me. This swelling got worse again when I braided my hair. I had to wash it and blow dry it first. The next day I braided it and haven’t did anything else. My daughter immediately looked at my feet and told me I needed to go somewhere soon. I am going to the Urgent Care that she goes to. I don’t think this is an emergency but I can’t keep wondering what is going on. I need to know something right away.
If I don’t post for a few days or so, it’s because I am getting more rest and my only excercise is going up and down the stairs for water and food if they are sleep of gone somewhere. I would have took a better picture but I need to relax for a minute. I have to get up with my daughter every morning before school. I am exhausted from trying to fix me some breakfast and soaking my feet downstairs in really hot water and Dawn dish washing liquid. They look a little better. Need another pedicure. Hopefully we go early enough this morning so I can get back home and get in the bed. That NordVPN is what was causing all the devices to run slow. I did a test without a VPN and one with a new VPN. The devices worked much better for me. I am using a VPN on all my devices except one which is his laptop. That is how I figured it out. It wasn’t the internet speed so no need to call Customer Service. Just needed to completely uninstall that NordVPN app from everything. I will tell you which VPN I am using now soon as I get a chance.

It really hurts to even move my right ankle. It feels like a strain or like I twisted it which I didn’t do. Because he is at home more now, we fighting over space and the PlayStation. We don’t have to fight about the laptop anymore now that I have the tablet running smoothly. I actually fixed all the devices before I went to sleep. I woke up at 6:30 in the evening. And still felt tired. I think I may need to eat something else because I am still hungry. Maybe he will cook us some bacon and eggs for breakfast if he is feeling okay. He is an insulin diabetic. His sugar has been high the last few days but he does check it regularly which makes me feel better about it. But it also makes him tired sometimes. Depending on what he has been eating or if he really ate at all.

My seven year old daughter is now reading as much of what I write as she can which is good sometimes but bad at others. I realize now that we can’t share a tablet which is why I had to get another one. She bores easily. From the Switch, Netflix, PlayStation 4, and Cordy 2 on the other tablet. This one didn’t come with those stock games which is also good. I managed to take a look outside and there is quite a bit of snow. He said that it snowed all day while I was sleeping. He was right. My feet are going to be really cold in house shoes. I may do what they used to even though it looks tacky. Cover my house shoes with a plastic bag or two so my feet stay warm and don’t get wet. There is no possibility that I can get any other pair of shoes on. It would hurt too much. I have what I am going to wear already picked out. All I need is some food and a quick nap, and I will be ready to go.

  

 

 

Dystonia: Get the Facts on the Syndrome and Treatment

We get most of our information about Dystonia from the Dystonia Medical Research Foundation but this article explains it well. “Syndrome” is correct but I refer to it as a disorder. It is rare and this is general information. I have Myoclonic Dystonia or Myoclunus which is the sudden jerking like movements you see in my videos on YouTube. The link to my channel is in the menu. https://www.medicinenet.com/dystonia/article.htm#
