Cortizone Shots...

In My previous entry I told you guys that my shoulder is killing me.. well I have been doing the same repetitive work for about 8 years, so I think my shoulder is telling me to STOP hurting it.   And I am hearing him loud and clear, I have soreness and my neck even hurts, the worst part was that now I am having pain even when I sleep. So I am taking Friday off to go and search for some relief , and I am fearing that I may need a Cortisone shot.  I have had one before in my right wrist for the same stress related inflammation and it helped a great deal. But I hear that those shots are not good for our bodies. I am going to do some research, I must admit the last time I had one was about 4-5 years ago and well my wrist hurt so much that I didn't think twice about getting it. And it did help a great deal. So if I have the option , I think I will end up taking it.. I just want the pain to go away.

Have you guys had a Cortisone Shot before and if so, let me know what you think? and If you refuse to get them also please let me know..I want to get some feedback on it.

 I fear that I have a Shoulder Bursitis and that  I will need some major thing done to my shoulder. But one thing I know for sure.. I can't stand the pain any longer, At the beginning I just thought I was sore and tired from all the manual lifting and typing.. but I get no relief even when I am not at work.. so its bad now. Also you may ask why didn't you go to the Doctor sooner... well I was working a Full shift at my Job, but was still considered a Part time Employee...which translates to NO INSURANCE.. I barely got it about 5 months ago. But was trying to wait for beginning of the year to get all the Doctors Visit and to save on having to pay my deductible twice within 4- 5 month time. I know I should have Not done it and boy do I regret it.. =(..

My Guinea Pig is in Heaven

I am so sad and I feel so bad, one of our Pet Guinea Pigs died this morning.  We have 2 little Pet guineas and they love to eat, and make funny sounds, but yesterday when I got home, I checked in on them to see if they had food and to change the water and our Damien Michael Sniffy ( that's her name) was not her happy bouncy self. It was about 8:30 pm, so I changed their bedding and gave them fresh water and food , but she was not interested, she just wanted to lay down. She moved 3 times , very slowly and refuse to eat. That's when I knew something was not right. I thought it might be the Cold that was bothering her, So I put some Warm t shirts inside their home. Her baby stayed with her all this time and did not move. I figured she would be ok, and we would take her to the Vet today. But at 4:45 am when I got up to check on them, She was no longer alive she was still warm , but had no heart rate and was stretched out =(...

The baby Guinea, that's  her name my nephew just named her that, she isn't a baby anymore she is now full grown  was laying next to her mother and did not move until I removed her from her bedding. I changed the bedding and put DM Sniffy in a Black Shoe box. We will be laying her to rest this evening. My nephew is sad this was his pet and does not understand why we have to die.

To many people this may sound weird and I know some won't understand, but we are Pet Lovers as long as I can remember we have always had some kind of pets. We have had dogs and Rabbits,  Parakeets, Cockatoos and Snakes, Fish ( all types) and  Doves, and even a cat for a brief moment , I am allergic to them.  They become part of our family and they even take on our last names, so when one of them dies, it's  a loss to the family one of its members is gone and we have to deal with the loss.  3 years ago I loss my Floppy he was my Dog and I felt horribly, my co worker didn't understand why I felt so sad, I told him, you obviously have never had the pleasure and privilege to know unconditional love that dogs or pets in general give. They become our play mates when we don't have one, our siblings when the ones we have are too busy to spend time with us and our guardians when our parents are away and we are home alone. And the hardest thing to do is to see your beloved Pet slowly leaving and you not being able to do anything to help them.

As always even on their last breath they teach us a lesson, both my Floppy and Sniffy were so peaceful, all they wanted to do was sleep, and they just kept looking at me.. and all I could say was.. I am sorry you don't feel well and rub their back. And tell them Thank You for being such great Pets and for Loving me. The pets that remain  also teach us a lesson, they teach us Love and Fidelity, Compasion and Empathy. Both My Dog Brownie and the Baby Guinea stayed next to their friend  until they expired, not leaving their side to eat or drink, and not moving even after they were gone, keping them warm by just laying next to them. That is devotion and Love and friendship until death a qualities that the majority of us  humans are incapable of  giving.

Many in this world put their dying parents into homes and are not at their bed side when they breath their last breath. But Animals they do , they stay there with you till the end and they truly mourn you and feel the loss.
Here is a Video of our Babies, Damien Michael Sniffy is the one with  the brown and white face they other one is her baby.

Happy New Year..2011 Here we Come

My number one question for all of you is.. What will you do this year to make your life a Bit better???

I am going back to school to get a Certification and hopefully make more $$$$.. then I will be able to work part time and enroll at least 1/2 time to school to work on my Masters.  I want to learn so much.. and Like I said School to me is for Learning and Knowledge. work is for $$$ so I will work to get more Education.

If that makes sense.. anyways this year I will continue with my exercise plan and hopefully I will be back to my ideal weight in July in time for My Cousins Wedding.. =) .. I am a Medium right now.. so I just have a little hump to go.

Also I plan to spend more time with JC, my Family and Myself. I need to find a class either an Art or Dance Class.. I need some Me time.
Last year  I only worked and worked and have nothing to show for .. except a tired body.. Not this year...

See the Picture on top .. that's my Nephews Drawing.. that's Him and I on a diving adventure, he has such a great imagination.. so this year I want to make that drawing a reality. We have been busy with a Super thick Homework package and we have fun writting the stories and drawing our adventures.

So for 2011 I want Adventures, and the great outdoors and Physical Activities and School and Knowledge.

may your 2011 be filled with what ever your hearts desire.
