Focus On The Good

I know I have neglected this for a while.
My Husband recently got laid off, completely unexpected and blindsided us all.He has worked underground in the coal mines for the past 10 years as an electrician and a foreman. I know it's a tough industry with all of the changes going on with the EPA and our lovely President. I am more than grateful that he has had a job this long. He is so use to working 6 and 7 days a week,  I have to admit a huge part of me is enjoying him being home for a is our boys. They think he is on a long Thanksgiving break :) He has applied for other jobs, I know he will find something else soon.
As of right now I am enjoying my boys being home on Thanksgiving break and decorating for Christmas.

 I am hard on myself about things that I have done in my past, but it's called past for a reason, everyone has one... some people need to realize that. I have made a pact with myself to only focus on the good, I have so much in life to be thankful for I can't dwell on things that I can't change, my past & my health I cant change neither of those.  
But I can and will change my future by only focusing on the good.

The List Dosen't Define ME

I haven't updated sense my Doctors appointment. It all went well at the Huntington's Disease Center of Excellence at OSU. Every Wednesday they have a HD clinic and each patient has a 4-hr appointment, meeting with a Social Worker, Physical Therapist, Medical Students and then your Doctor. I was really impressed with the whole process and how in depth and understanding they all are. I was so happy that my Husband was able to take off work to go with me.

I was put on two medications, one for during the day the other at bedtime. My Dr told me to start taking the bedtime one first for one week then start the day one. I have had issues with the dosage, but I talked it over with my Doctor and it's now fixed. I literally didn't sleep any four nights straight. Tomorrow I start the day pill, and I am anxious to start it. I know with new medicine you are not going to get the correct dosage right the first time, I just hope and pray I don't have any side effects and it helps me.

One Step At A Time

I have been busy, we got so much accomplished this weekend with the move. When I say we, mostly the husband  . I don't know what I would do or be without him, honestly.
I have had a lot on my mind lately but I think it's just because I have a doctors appointment coming up Wednesday in Columbus, Ohio. I had to find a new Neurologist because my previous one stopped practicing medicine. I am a little nervous to start the process over but I hope and pray to just get some answers and a little more insight of why I feel the way I do. I will post an update sometime after my appointment to let everyone know how it goes, being that I have so many that read this ha-ha :)

Until next time
