Today is thrift shop day.

Why?  Because I have the checkbook and the OK to take some money out for myself.  I know.  I know.  The ridiculous OK to take some money.  But those who have been long time know of Chuck's control issues.  I could use the relaxation of just wandering the aisles of the shop.  And to go somewhere without being able to get something.......well, I will never understand why people would "window shop."  I could never do it.

And now for prayers.  I am very worried about my 13 year old grand daughter.  Dawn did finally get her to the doctor.  He isn't worried about her dizziness.  He says it is positional vertigo.  He did a CBC and will also run a Thyroid test too.  He does want her to see a neurologist regarding her constant shakiness.  Then after they get the blood test results and see the neurologist....she has the name and # of a psychiatrist.  This girl is hurting so much.  Dawn's oldest is an angry/sort of mentally uninvolved boy. But he is super intelligent and not in trouble of any kind.  He is kind of withdrawn like his dad.  Perhaps undemonstrative is a better word. They have all been through so much and with parents who do not present a stable attitude, who do not make the kids feel safe and loved-even though they are-they are all suffering.  Jeremy still hasn't heard about whether or not he will be given a position in maintenance with the wind farm.  Dawn said the reason so many people working on these wind farms have lost their jobs due to something the government did but she didn't have any details.  DAMN OBAMA! 

STILL no snow.  Really?  My son in Nevada says they have been having temps in the 20' through the 40"s.  Somehow that sentence sounds wrong.  We will be having super cold temps this weekend and posibble be breaking/setting another record.

Happy, Happy!

Hope the doctors figure it out so she feels better. I like the no snow! I'm all OK with rain and nice weather. Maybe I should move to Hawaii...

That's horrible news to hear about the vertigo, I wouldn't wish that on anybody and hope she gets well soon, she's so young too! Enjoy your day having a shop, you deserve a little you time anyway.

When I was younger, I would get ridiculously dizzy out of nowhere and it would last for a few seconds to literally hours, sometimes with or without shaking. I had several doctors try to put me on stuff but I never took anything. But THEN, I got pregnant with Olivia and it turns out I have like literally the lowest iron levels ever. I'm not anemic, but damn near. They actually told me at one point with her I was at the level they would do a transfusion. They didn't because I felt totally fine, but when my iron levels go way down, it brings on the dizzy/shakiness. Very weird. So now I just take a small iron vitamin and am totally fine. Let's hope it's something easy like that. :)

Thrift store day is always a good day for me. I have never understood the concept of window shopping either. I have had vertigo and it puts me in bed on Antivert and anything else I can find. Vertigo is intense. I have also cared for patients with it. It usually has to do with salt intake. Limit sodium for her if it turns out she has it. That would be better than the other alternatives.

Hugs to you during this time. Glad you have a thrift store day to be a diversion of some kind.

Here in Western Oregon, the temps are barely hitting 40-if that. I'm so sorry about your grand daughter.
