Bottle of Pills, Calms Nervous Nelly, + best friend= eye exam and treats!
Get up in the morning and take one Lorazepam 1 mg...proceed to clean house...feel self slowing down a bit, but turn to art quilt and find threading invisible thread seems easier than last nights attempts; also able to sew on remaining pieces until all pieces are now sewn on to NYP art quilt. Feeling drowsy...take one piece in need of hand embroidery and go sit to do this with ease. Return to sew it in place. Able to sew standing up some shiny buttons with sparkly beads to flower centers for more pizzaz and sparkle. Hamsa sewn on and arm in place.Tried couching green yarn for vines but found this task needed a clearer mind so will put it off one more day. A few repairs made here and there. Stood quilt up. So big and rather heavy. Will need strong curtain rod to hold it well. Back continues to look clean with invisible thread barely showing, and now a few dark green stitches for couching of vine work. By 2:40 I took the second 1mg pill and became more foggy. And figured it was not a good idea to continue quilting. Best friend Patty arrived to drive me to my appointment. I've been promised by the pharmacist that I will be good an loopy from pills as not to c are what doctors will do to me. (This Time) Well I am able to follow most instructions and pass test without too much resistance. Dr might not have said it just like that, as I did have some cringing reactions and demanding waiting periods between torturous things done to me. He seemed to have a tad more patience than previous docs. He was able to complete all tests. And he did tell me he could find no more tears in my eyes THANK GOD. I'm good until next year. He told me to please take three pills before next years visit. Patty held my arm as I stumbled out of his office. And we easily found our way to Fenton's. I still had my unused Gift card for this Grand Ice Cream store in my purse. A gift from Patty for Christmas. So in we went to assure all discomforts and traumatic events buried deep in my mind. She had a root beer float and I a small hot fudge sundae with coffee ice cream. I'd hope it would bring me out of my sleepy, drowsy, state! But I write this now through blurry eyes (probably from all the drops poured into my poor eyes earlier in the day. I dare say I Will sleep well tonight...and drats what the scale says tomorrow. I earned this treat! ! For now all physical tests are behind me and it seems to me i have passed all with flying colors. Good to go for another year! The only things I have not gained in aging so far is a sense of bravery and courage. They continue to elude me at least in terms of the physical body.
