Edge Walking – Part Two

They’re not going to let me get away with not having a nurse and nurses aide. I so tried. I did to tell them no but…….I mean come on…… the doc chuckled and said, “Faith, they won’t all be crazy. You need the help. Let them help you.” The main reason they’ve got to come is because I can’t screw up the med regimen. I can’t screw it up.

And food. I want some real food. I’m so hungry I can’t see straight. I want real food not easy canned soup or cold sandwiches. I need a meal. I’m hungry! I want a baked potato,  baked chicken, steamed broccoli and steamed carrots. I want a roll beside it. No more processed foods. I want real food……oh and a nice cup of Lapsang souchong.

Alright well, the rest of the day is for relaxation. The weather is good today. It’s wet but its nice so my windows are open and my ceiling fan is going.

    here’s hoping you get a real meal! for me, there are days where that can make all the difference. eating on a slim budget… i can do it but dang if i don’t want a big piece of meat, some good veggies, some potato and dessert if i choose!

    peace & quiet are so nice and can be so healing. i read your posts in awe because you know so well what it is you need at any given time. you really do. you know exactly what to do in order to get off the edge… sometimes i know it can take a bit overload to realize it’s time to change things but at least you have it figured out. i envy that :)

    take care of you my friend….

    I think you should be able to go through the roster of available workers, interview them and find the one that is the right match for you….

    I had the meal of a life time is what I had. My friend Betty and I went to the Clay Oven and had authentic Indian food. I can’t say enough about it. We then went over to the ‘foreigner’s market’ where I found every sort of authentic tea and food I could think of. I think my friend and I were the only American’s in there. There were African’s, Filipinos , Hispanics, Turks and then a white girl and a black girl.
    Today was what I needed. It was exactly what I needed. I did my doctor appointment, accepted that I’ll have staff and then I went to hang out with Betty. Now I’m sipping Arabian tea. Yeah, real Arabian tea. I don’t even know what to think of myself! :-)

    I’ve never tried Arabian tea… how is it? Indian tea I love… curious about Arabian.

    I’m glad you have Betty there. She is a good friend. And accepting that you’ll have staff… I know that is a biter pill but in the end probably for the best eh?
