Dear Marcy @MarcyW882921 , my thoughts are with you dear friend that you find a SOLUTION for your migraines.

 

So sorry your present medication is SO EXPENSIVE!!!  😤😤😤

 

It is time for Medicare to COVER these meds so old folks can FUNCTION. Gosh, who can hire a maid to do what needs to be done on a DAILY BASIS???

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗

🐈  It is 8:30am for me here in Cave Spring, Virginia and Mr. has been IN & OUT since 6am. He is here NOW.

 

📸  Attachment  📸

 

6am is OUR usual time for him to come in. I even have my 2 alarms set for those mornings I actually slept.

 

Lol, he thinks I DO NOT know - but he is KEEPING AN EYE on Ms. Geraldine's porch.

 

Not sure what the deal is, but rumor says she has moved and son moved in. Anyway, I will keep OUR MORNING routine as this seems to be the time NO ONE ELSE is feeding him.

 

Lol, AFTER that - one NEVER knows WHEN he will EAT the food I have for him. He likes people food which OTHERS give him. Nope, NOT ME.

 

In fact got to pick up more FRISKIES from Walmart TODAY for him.

 

Now to encourage him to leave so I can go SHOWER. So NOT leaving my door open.

 

Nicole  🐈

I am "weathering the heat" try to light chores in the a.m. before it heats up ..Follow the sun by closing shades/curtains/windows have indoor fans on as I am not an A/C fan as the p.m comes around and I have windsocks outside so I can see visibly that there is a breeze I begin to draw the curtains and open screened windows for the night so one can sleep ..Drink plenty of fluids through out the day and eat light cucumber and watermelon and tomatoes are good ..Don;t forget if you start to feel lightheaded cold cloths  and something with a little salt even soup which is usually salty will help besides gatorade ..Also at night a cold wet cloth helps keep the body temp down by moving around the body ...Time to enjoy that book you have wanted to read and take it easy...

Nicole @SummerIsTooHOT ,

After reading a piece in the newspaper about a young woman who received significant relief from migraine headaches through auricular therapy administered by an acupuncturist, I decided to try it. Of course it is not covered by Medicare, but I still thought it was worth a shot. My latest medication prescribed by a neurologist is quite expensive even with prescription coverage and even at about 50% savaings in Canada it is still expensive. My next acupuncture follow-up is Tuesday.

(1 comment) Cadee  , I am sitting here TRYING to figure out the BEST solution to my ever INCREASING living accommodations from h.ll. 😭😭😭

 

Gosh, I still MARVEL at you picking up and leaving your h.ll in California.

 

NOW you are in Idaho, yes - dealing with getting your medical stuff set up BUT finally SAFE!!!  💃💃💃

 

Anyway, I will update you guys on my MOVING PROJECT. If Cadee did it, so can I!!!  👍👍👍

 

Luv you ALL,

Good afternoon. Got up early today then spent the morning working my daily puzzles. Took my walk and then checked my mail. HMPH! Nothing from AARP. Checked junk mail and there they were. All my lovely messages got sent to junk! So I sat and fixed them all. I did not tell my mail client to send AARP mail to spam so I have no idea how that happened. 

Anyway here I am checking to make sure my new friends are all ok. 
l will be busy tomorrow getting myself out the door for my eye appt. I’ll be using Uber because I always get dilated for a retina check. That will make it hard for me to read my mail until sometime in the afternoon, so do not panic if  I’m a bit late tomorrow. I will see you all tomorrow. Until then LUV TO ALl.

(1 comment) Dr. Diane @DianeB887812 aka Dr. Walker, hope you ENJOYED your walk THIS MORNING. Do you change routes? When I walk, I do to eliminate the boredom

 

It is nearly 7pm for us BOTH (you in Florida, me in Virginia) and AFTER a much needed ALL DAY NAP  🙄🙄🙄,  I am headed to get my soak ready.  👍👍👍

 

Was TOO TIRED before nap to do the soak = falling asleep.

 

The NAP was possible as UPSTAIRS neighbors from h.ll have been GONE since Friday.  💃💃💃

 

Need to check mailbox and take trash to dumpster way in the back TONIGHT. Hate this chore, but....

 

Luv you my friend,

Nicole  🤗🤗🤗
