Here it is again Friday, another week gone. Really glad it’s over as it has been a brutal week. I cannot believe I was able to care for my mum after her stroke-while it was not easy, she made it as easy as possible and she was confined to a wheelchair, paralysed on her right side, very difficult to understand as the stroke affected her speech. This woman was a bright, independent woman who loved life and loved people. the middle third of the left hemisphere of her brain was gone, destroyed by the stroke. The hardest aspect of that was the role-reversal. Your parents are supposed to be indestructible, invincible. To have her rely on me as I once did on her as a child was the hardest aspect. I got no help with her either. As much as I tried to get it, couldn’t. But we made it work. My father , OTOH, Asperger’s Syndrome and dementia…I’m going out of my mind, he is killing me in the process-I cannot for love nor money get help so I’m trying to file complaints against his physician and the social worker. What the hell kind of society are we living in????? I’m never going to make it this summer if I can’t find a doctor to put me back on Valium. I’m so happy they take a vow not to harm us but by denying me a medication that has saved my life, that’s exactly what they are doing-harming me. This is about ME, not them or their profits. I never abused it ,I never became addicted to it but was ripped off it cold turkey for no reason other than idiot doctor wanted me on SSRI’s and I wasn’t going there. I saw no reason to play pill bingo. Valium worked for me. He forgot he told me he wanted to get out of medicine and retire to Key West with his wife and open a tourist bar. Not on my dime he wasn’t. I would have had his license for that-his wife actually cut me off-a woman with NO medical training or understanding of what she was doing…she was a “secretary”. Not even sure that’s what she was but surely that has to be illegal and unethical for a secretary to deny a prescription refill.
Anyway, I got some new thread in the post earlier in the week. Never would have bought all this had I still been on my Viking. I never had luck with metallics until I got my Bernina which I go pick my 830 LE up Sunday at my dealers. Had some work done to fix tension. Can’t wait. I still use my Bernina 530 but have grown very close to my 830LE and am more comfortable with that. I have an idea for a steampunk art quit I’m hoping I can work on. Using dupioni silk for this, just have to figure out what I want to do.
I saw this on Goodreads and thought I’d do it.
1) Favorite radio station?
When I had Sirius XM, I loved Ozzys’ Boneyard and 1st Wave. Since I cancelled that, I no longer listen to the radio.
2) What’s a song you could (and do) listen to over and over again if given a chance?
Lita Ford’s Close My Eyes Forever. So many good memories attached to that and was so very hypnotic to play when I was playing guitar.
3) Who is a relatively new musical talent (this decade)that you like?
This decade? I haven’t really listened to a lot of new music that moved me since the metal scene was killed off in the early 90’s. Not sure how new they are but I find myself playing Ride’s From Time To Time a lot. I listen to some trance stuff that helps me over the rough patches. Not sure how new Ride is, as a band.
I guess if I don’t publish this, I’ll end up sitting here until its time to get dinner rolling. Have to get busy. Happy Friday everyone!
