These past few months I've been feeling listless, easily confused, unhappy and was generally uninterested in anything other than sitting. Anyone who knows me personally knows that this is very uncharacteristic. Hubby was always amazed at how much I would accomplish in a day. Well, that had come to a crashing halt this past Spring. The doctor I was using then seemed more interested in data-entry into her computer during my visit than listening to my ailments. That would not do! So, I decided to try another General Practitioner. Guess what, I like this guy. He's a bundle of energy AND he left his cotton-pickin' computer in his office! Everything is written down like in the old days. He actually listened to my concerns. First visit the nurse drew so much blood I thought I was visiting Dracula. :) After a series of tests, it showed that one of my ailments can be contributed to a B-12 deficiency. Since I'm Medically Challenged, I had not heard of such a condition. "Sounds like voodoo to me", I griped. Well, after hanging up the phone I checked the conditions on the Internet: "confusion, mild dementia, etc. etc." BINGO! That convinced me. I had the first shot over 3 weeks ago and, lo-and-behold, what a difference the right diagnosis makes! I'm now a bundle of energy and full of my usual quick quips.
And B-12 Rocks!
After I get control of this annoying joint and muscle pain, I think I'll be good to go again. Another doctor recently visited suggested X-rays and MRI. All that going back and to doctors produced the analysis of arthritis and bone spurs in the right hip. Now I'm scheduled for a "procedure" (they didn't bother to give me the technical name) next Wednesday to hopefully get rid of that pain. Get this, though, I have to be sedated and the shot injected accompanied by an X-ray machine to get to the exact spot! Yipes! I'm not looking forward to that. At least I'll be in La La Land during the procedure.
Anyway, stay tuned Sports Fans, Sparky is back!
