Finally got in to see my family doctor. My GI never called me back about the flu shot, so one nice thing about Facebook is all the groups. Went on the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada group, and asked what everyone else did about their flu shots and Humira timing. No one was told to do anything different. I was due for my Humira last Thursday, but went in Friday for my flu shot, so I am holding my Humira off until this Thursday instead. I have literally not even had a sore arm, and am so glad I have the flu shot in me. For me personally, it makes all the difference in the Winter months!
I also talked to her about my allergies being so bad. She said I could take two extra strength Reactine, but I can’t afford that! As it is, it’s about $30 a month not including my vitamins, etc. I have to take too from being low on them, so I just can’t afford it. She gave me a prescription for a nasal allergy spray to take as well, that’s covered thankfully. Since the worse of my allergies are in my sinus’ and eyes. Hopefully that will help! So far no difference.
I got a beautiful new bed frame off Kijiji! I love it! Sooo pretty!
My aunt Kelly is down visiting. She went out with the boys trick or treating on Friday night and I totally boycotted Halloween. I thought it must have been my depression bc I usually have decorations up at the beginning of October, and I never did put any up weirdly enough, but I think it’s just bc of all the horrible stuff on the news lately, and the weather being so off, I just didn’t feel like it even was Halloween. I’m also still excited for Christmas, etc. so I think it’s just one of those off years for people, bc a LOT of people didn’t seem into it.
I told my mom I wasn’t in it, so she said to hide at her place and just hang out. So I got my garbage out in the morning, and then went grocery shopping with Holly. I got picked up by Grams and aunt Kelly and went to the doctors, and got a ride back to mom’s after to get my laundry done. After dinner mom and I went to the pet store for me to get the guinea pigs their food, etc. and stopped at Walmart for the rest of the groceries. I was POOPED by the time I got home!
Yesterday mom and I went and got Grams a microwave stand used for her, and snuck it up as a surprise at her apartment. I fixed her computer while we visited for a bit, then I came home. We are having a big turkey dinner tonight with aunt Kelly, since she wasn’t down at Thanksgiving and she is going home to Toronto tomorrow 😦 BOO!
Now I am reading “Gone Girl.” I want to see the movie eventually, so figured I had better read the book first. I’ve been so exhausted I just start to fall asleep when I read, but so far I am enjoying it. The atmosphere I feel when I see a commercial for the movie, is the same feeling I get reading the book. Next I am going to read “Gone.” That the movie with Amanda Siegfried (sp?), is based on.
>Mom has the dog cage I usually plop the girls into while I am doing their cage… so I have nothing to put them in lol. I have a fairly big enough box that I can through so bedding into for now just while I clean their cage up, I’m just afraid they’ll get out of it! lol.
Will write again soon!
PS I got the dog sit a wonderful sweety for the afternoon last weekend! I was so glad I was well enough to do it 🙂
