   OK, I've been ordered to post something, but don't expect happy and fluffy.

     Like a lot of people, work is sucky. Friday, just before break, my bosses boss ordered me to go outside and move my car (it was in the way of where they wanted to snow plow). This also necessitated getting the snow and ice off my car so I could see. After that, I went on my break.

     When I got back to my station, the Supervisor (my immediate boss) was waiting for me.  She was angry and demanded to know why I left my station. I explained what had happened with the manger (who was both mine and the supervisor's boss) ordering me to leave. She said no, that she was the one who covers my station when I'm gone (which was news to me. Sometimes one of the other workers will cover my station, other times there is a whole bunch of customers waiting for me to get back so thet could be processed).

     Today I did what she said I was supposed to and worked until she showed up to cover my station so I could take a break.. She never bothered to come over, so I had to work my station untill the shift ended.

     I'm a diabetic. There is a reason that need to take a break and grab something to eat during the day. By the end of my shift, I was having a problem. I never should have tried driving home like I usually do. But thinking isn't always easy to do when you have low sugar.  Walking was difficult and arms were sort of jerking.

    Going home was a series of driving, stopping when the jerking got to bad, then continuing on when I was able to hold the car steady in the lane again. It was a long ride home. If I was thinking normally, I never would have even tried it.

     I'm not sure what I'm going to say to her on Tuesday, but the supervisor can't keep doing this. Maybe it would matter if I mentioned that by making me work during my unpaid break, she actually should be paying me overtime? Not sure if I want to go that route. Retaliation from management can be bad.

Dead Cat
I was driving today. There was a large dead cat at the side of the road (At least I think it was dead). I pulled my car a little to the left to go by it.

I looked in the rear-view mirror and could see the pickup behind me. Instead of going left like me, he turned right so that he (or she) could drive directly over it. I suppose the driver got a big kick out of it.

What is wrong with people?

I forgot to mention how glad I am that Scott and Sarah have been having me over their house for dinner. It's good to get away for a while, ya know? Well, I went to the Neurologist and came back. Mary was nice enough to bring me. He wants more testing down. I get to wear a heart monitor for 24 hours starting Tuesday {twirls index finger in circle. Sarcastic "Whoopee"}. He also wants to have a sleep study down to check if the settings are right on my CPAP machine. (I have sleep apnea. CPAP is a machine that blows air down your thought so you don't (momentarily) stop breathing). What the heck that has to do with anything is beyond me. So, basically I'm still in limbo. The Neurologist is getting a better set of pictures from the people who did the MRA. The cat scans did show signs of a stroke {Well, Duh!!! Why does he think he was called in, anyways?). So, I'm doing OK. I've survived worse. I'll survive whatever happens. Would be nice not to have the headaches, though. And to be able to drive (I think Mary is getting tired of being a chaffer. She keeps trying to get me to drive. She says not to listen to the doctors, probably nothing will happen. I get tempted, but if I zone out like before, driving a multi-ton vehicle is not the place to be.) Well, enough winning and moaning. Mary is going to drive me somewhere to eat. (Yeah! No cold cut sandwiches tonight. Although, my mayonnaise and bologna sandwiches aren't bad. They just get boring after a while.) That's to all the people (family and friends) who've offered help and supported. I probably would have gone off the deep end without you.

Wish me luck, peoples
Wish me luck, peoples. I go to the Nurologest today and get the results of my brain scans.

I had a good time at Madaline house a week ago (back in the short time I was alowed to drive). It was great to see her again. After dinner, me and her went into the living room to chat and catch up with each others lives while Bob disapeared. It was a good time.

Then Monday happened. I was seeing a Doctor about getting that thing on my neck removed (It's going to be yet another 2 week waite). I had to stop at my Regular Doctor's to rearange an appiomentment and to get a glass of water so I could take a Tylonal afterwards. They didn't like the way I looked and one of the staff went looking for me to make sure I was OK. (This was after I had left). She found me sort of walking around the office building looking for a place to sit. I had been pushing a headache and I guess I pushed to much.

She got concerned because I didn't recognize her. (This is someone I normaly call by name when I see her). She eventually convince me to follow her back to the office and had me 1st sit down and then lay down as they got one of my family to pick me up. I was sorta OK after laying down (20 min, maybe). But the Doc said driving was deffinatly a No-No. :>(

The strange thing was that I didn't just not recognize her, bit that she looked wrong (I didn't mention that to the Docs. I wasn't really questioning things. Like I said, I was sorta ok). I couldn't quite get the features on 1 side of her face. The other side looked like an oil paitning that someone had smeared. There were no winkles on that side of her face. just a smothsmear of skin with no features except a mouth an eye and a sort of squiced nose. Very strange. I never had that happen before.

Any way, I get to see the results of my MRA today. Maybe by the time I get back I'll be able to drive again. Of course, that will also probably mean going back to work again. I'm not looking forward to a 12 hour shift on Thurday. I haven't been awake for 12 hours straight since everything started happening to me. When the headaches hit hard enough, I go lay down. It's about the only thing I've found that stops them.

Anyway, I took a test on a friends LJ about intellegence (on of those Blog tests that people make up). I got a math score of Genius. Of course, I was actually counting on my finger to do it. I couldn't seem to make the multiplation work right. Anyways, it was nice to get things right. I couldn't do that a while ago. I know it wasn't a serious test and at no time did the numbers past 2 digits (including the answers). But I did it!!!! And it made me feel goog. Elated in fact.

Well, I've got to get going. I have to get ready. Mary's going to pick me up soon and drive me to the Doc.

My Doctor Called
I talked to my Doctor today. She said I could drive if I thought I was able to (i.e. not going to pass out or become disorientated behind the wheal).

I can Drive!!!!!!

I am so happy! :>)

They got my MRA results back. She (my doctor) said that, having looked at the scans, she wants a Neurologist to see them. She couldn't immediately point to anything to have caused a stroke, but there were things in my she hadn't come across before. Maybe I should change my name to Last name Normal, First name Abby. :>) It's been a year and a half since I saw him last (the Neurologist). I thought I never would have to see him again. I wonder if he'll remember me?

My friends Scott and Sarah had me over their house for dinner Tuesday. They had to pick me up at home and drop me off later. I had a great time. My friend Madeleine has invited me to her house for dinner Saturday. She was going to pick me up, but now I can drive myself. (This is so cool!) I'm really looking forward to it.

Mary took me food shopping this week and to the doctor's (different Doc, this was for the arm infection, which is finally cleared up). I bet she and my sisters (who also ferried me to doctor appointments) are going to be relieved not to have to play Taxi. No one's complained, but that had to have been a pain in the butt for them.

To celebrate my doctor's clearance, Mary and I went to dinner at '"On The Border" (A local Mexican Restaurant). I got to drive. I am so happy!!

Pity and SG1
OK. I know this has been my own little pity party. Which no one wants to hear and it isn't going to change anything. But it does make me feel better. I don't know why, but it does. Call it venting or catharsis. I'll probably stop it in a post or 2, but not yet. What I will do is hide it behind Cut-Outs, so people can just skip over them if they want. So, the whining isn't over, but at least it's in a box in the closet. This is assuming I get the cut-out to work. I'm breaking down and using a program called LochJournal to do the coding for me. {hangs head in shame} I know it's simple coding, but I just can't get my mind around it. Anyways, here goes nothing..

Me and Mary watched the 1st episode of "Star Gate SG1" last night. It was cool. And she liked it. Maybe another SG1 fan in the making?

Well, it's been a fun 6 days since I last updated.

My regular doctor saw me as an emergency appointment Monday. That was nice of her, because it meant both her and one of her staff had to stay after closing hours to take care of me (She was already booked solid for the whole of her work day). She got me an appointment for an MRA (a specialized form of an MRI). Also put me on an antibiotic for the very painful infection in my arm from the IV in the hospital.

Tuesday I had to call work and explain what was going on. I told them I would be out at least 2 weeks. They said OK. This was the 1st time I ever had to tell anyone what was going on. Every-one either was told by the doctors, or by my family, or read about it in my LJ. I did alright talking to them, but after I hung up the phone, things went crazy. I found myself curled up in a ball, crying. I don't know were that came from. I'm putting it down to my head being messed up for a while due to the stroke.

I continue this later. Right now my computer is starting to act crazy and I don't want to lose what I've already written.

     Well, it's been a while since I updated this. Thought this would be a good time.

     I had a very busy Wednesday. I wasn't feeling well at work. Every-one just assumed my sugar was off (I'm a diabetic). That is, until things got worse. They called 911 and the paramedics showed up, followed by an ambulance. Everyone seemed to overreact. They kept thinking I was having a stroke. I kept telling them they were wrong, that if they just let me rest a while, I would be fine. But no one would listen to me (After all, It was just MY BODY. What would I know about how it worked?). I only realized later that no-one would listen to me because they couldn't understand what I was saying. Hmm, problems making recognizable word, unable to focus eyes, and unable to use any part of the body other than opening and closing eyes. I admit, those were the classic signs of a stroke.

     God, I had a stroke. Again. I managed to block any feelings on the subject for the last several days, but suddenly everything is hitting me. I'm so scared. And I don't even know what I'm scared of. I mean, everything came back on-line OK. I can use my body, I can talk. The only left over effects are being tired all the time, headaches and some problems with my memory. I'm assuming that these, given a little time, will self correct.

     Technically, I had a TIA mini-stroke. A severe mimi-stroke. The severe was added in by my Doctor. All the Doctors involved were greatly surprised when the blood-clot in my brain dissolve and appeared to leave no lasting damaged. Shock would be a more accurate term to use.

     Anyways, they took me to the hospital with the ambulance sirens wailing and lights flashing. I didn't have to wait and take a number, either.  As soon as the ambulance stopped, I was hauled out of the ambulance and rushed inside. I was surround by a ton of medical people (Doctors, Nurses and who knows what else). I'm not sure how many because I couldn't turn my head to look around. First class treatment all the way.

      I know I was only in the hospital a few days (entered Wensday and was released on Saturday afternoon).  And I know people had a lot to do in their lives at that time, and some just have a phobia about hostpitals. Still, it would have been nice to have had a vistor. Sometimes the phone just dosn't cut it. Just once it would have been nice to hold someone's hand who was not doing it just to gage how well my muscel control was doing.

     OK. I'm going to try and break out of the self pity mode I've seemed to have gotton in. Being whiny doesn't help anyone and is just annoying. On to the happier parts of this inciddent.

     Mary picked me up Saturdy afternoon from the hospital. She took me to my niece's wedding reception. (I missed the wedding, but my sister help a cell phone up so I could listen to it). I didn't stay long, just long enough to make an appearse and hug my niece. Just doing that had me so exhausted I felt like I was going to drop. Then me and Mary went home. She stayed the rest of the day with me. Not that I was the best of company (just laid on the couch and fell asleep on her several times.) But it was so good having her there. It made me feel good, Much less stressed (I didn't even releazed I was stressed until it went away). We watched the first episode of Dynasty (it was great!!!). Mary owns the 1st season and we are going to watch the whole thing together. I'm really looking forward to it.

     Well, that's it for now. I'm tired and am going to go lay down (again!!!).

Part Time Asshole/Bitch.
I may think I am an asshole or a bitch, but the truth is I am a good person at heart. Yeah sure, I can have a mean streak in me, but most of the people I meet like me.

I am 17% White Trash.
Not at all White Trashy!
I, my friend, have class. I am so not white trash. . I am more than likely Democrat, and my place is neat, and there is a good chance I may never drink wine from a box.

I am 50% Internet Addict.
Total Internet Addict!
I am pretty addicted, but there is hope. I think I'm just well connected to the internet and technology, but it's really a start of a drug-like addiction. I must act now! Unplug this computer!

Well, I'm here.
Not sure what I'm going to talk about, so read at your own risk! It's probably going to be a hole lot of meaningless drivel.

I'm male. I like Computers, reading books, reading on-line fan-fic and original fics. My favorite show is Stargate SG1. And the thing I mostly like is my girlfriend!

Talk more later.
