I think we got about a foot of snow here in Central PA since Tuesday. Ugh. Memphis got thunderstorms, and I think I prefer those – though, no doubt, my cats would disagree.
Still seriously planning on moving back south. I want to be around my new granddaughter, and I really don’t like it here. It’s boring.
The healthcare is ok, and it’s easier to access here than in Memphis. Also, as much of a hassle as the buses are here, at least they have frequent ones that go where I need to go. Memphis, unless it’s changed drastically, isn’t so great for mass transit.
On the other hand, Memphis is a bigger place and it has pockets of activism. That gives it a huge advantage in my eyes, despite the obvious transportation issues involved (I would still have to find rides to demonstrations, etc).
Anyway, I am not going to post about anything important today, just health news.
I broke my toe about 2 weeks ago, and it still hurts, so my Planet Fitness plan is on hold until I can shove my foot into my Skechers. Right now, I am hobbling around with a hard-soled sandal-type shoe that the orthopedist gave me.
I went to the endocrinologist also, and she is convinced that the hyperparathyroidism is due to the vitamin D deficiency. As for the facial flushing, hypertension, diarrhea, and nausea, she says “we need to look elsewhere”. She wants me to continue to track symptoms and see her in 6 months.
I am not as sick as I was 2 years ago, so ok. I am tired of pursuing this. As long as I don’t land in the hospital, I will just keep on keepin’ on. For now.
I still have other (political) things I want to write about, but I will save them for the week after next – seeing as how next week is the last Wednesday of the month (“good news day”).
So, for those of you snowed in, I hope you dig out soon. For those in the southern states, I hope you don’t get any more tornadoes.
Weird news of the week: What could possibly go wrong? “Ax Throwing Gains in Popularity as Pastime, Sport”, Robert Bumsted, Associated Press via the SFGate website, 3/21/18. Oh, those wacky New Yorkers!
Recommendation of the week: LowIncomeRelief is a website that lists discounts you can get if you’re poor – of particular interest is ways you can use your EBT card (no, not for paying for non-food stuff, you use it to prove you’re low income so you can get discounts). Discounts include $6.95/month for Amazon Prime, reduced admission to museums all across the USA, and cheap internet service.
Be good. Be kind. No more snow!!
