    Thanks Nonna for the clarification. I had no idea Rx meant prescription - now wonder I was getting confused. I assume that DX means diagnosed, well that is what I thought it meant. It is around 8:30pm Sunday night at the moment in Western Australia - Not sure what time it is there for you.
  2. Good Morning or whatever time it is for you Linda.
    You're right a out PCP, the insurance companies add that one instead of GP. Rx is short for prescriptions.

    The ER visits happen because our doctors have limited hours and usually no hours on the weekend. My ER visits usually happen on Saturday night. Also some specialist offices are so heavfully scheduled that they tell you to go to the ER.

    Glad I can help

    Hi Nonna, just a quick question. In some of your posts you say "RX" and I am not sure what that is. Perhaps it is an American saying.

    Does "PCP" mean Primary Care Practitioner? In Australia we have a GP - General Practitioner. We go to the GP for all our medical problems and if he/she thinks we needs specialist care writes a referal to a specialist in that particular field. The GP prescribes a lot of medications and looks after our general medical care.

    It seems that in a lot of posts, many people go to the ER alot. We only go to the ER for serious problems, and possibly at night time when we think we cannot wait to see a GP in the morning.

    Hi Nonna, I am a grade 6 teacher. It must be exciting escaping into a world of make believe when you write. Have you ever let anyone read your work?.

    I wrote a VERY short book for my kids based on my 11yr old daughter (the oldest child). It captured so much of her manerisms and personality. My kids kept pestering me when was I going to write the next chapter. Anyway, I typed it on my old computer and it died, so the book also died with it.

    This new lupus thing has me really stumped. I don't know if I am just terribly unfit and feel yuk, or if it is because of the lupus. At the moment I am feeling a bit down because after 29 years of marriage, and never taking my rings off, I need to get them all cut off because my fingers have swollen up so much because my kidneys are not functioning properly. Hopefully you are well at the moment.

    Tell me about your creative writer's mind - are you are writer?

As the world turns, do I?

by Nonna on 04-19-2014 at 09:47 AM
I'm feeling out of sorts at the moment and can't figure it out. My health is pretty stable but I think I'm unhappy, tired of coping. Coping with everything, tired of dealing with my Mother's idiosyncrasies, tired of dealing with my Father's spurts of temper because he believes I'm ignorant. I know it's just a mood and I'll get over it.

It's just this trapped feeling, I'm working around it, getting rid of it. But still, every now and then it gets to me...... Like today. I just

Hang in there

by Nonna on 02-12-2014 at 06:27 PM
Hang in there, that's all I seem to hear. Besides my father's heart condition, now my mother has one also. Her stay in the hospital shocked her so much that her mind is really deteriorating. I'm having a bad day physically and she keeps repeating herself. She also said she couldn't find her hearing aids, so in the middle of trying to cook lunch, I had to go look for them. Couldn't find. Them anywhere. 2 hours later we discover that they were in her ears. This evening while I was cooking dinner,

Eeyore Days Part 2

by Nonna on 12-10-2013 at 08:19 PM
Where do I begin and how do I say this. I don't know if it's selfish or not. We had a beautiful day today no problems at all, then I made the simple mistake of going into the kitchen, Mom walked away and left me there to watch over what was on the stove. According to her I took it off the stove too soon and dinner wasn't hot enough to suit her. Mind you the food has to be hot the plates warmed and everything on the table at six. She then proceeds to spent the entire evening harping on everything

Here I go again

by Nonna on 09-15-2013 at 10:26 AM
Well, here I go again. I've been in Florida since April, I finally got the insurance stuff straightened out and am running low on meds. Now I have to tackle new docs. I'm trying to put together my med history and med list. Googled docs and I'm ready to start calling.

I feel ok, hardly any pain, but my stress levels are back through the roof. My Mother's mind is going and I have to deal with outbursts now.

I'm caretaker now 24/7, but I get an hour or two to myself

I'm feeling very alone right now; I know it's just a downer because I've been flaring and can't seem to get back on my feet. The pain in my hip and leg was unbearable today but I pushed through it as usual. Now myshoulder and arm on my good side is acting up. I hurts much I want to cry but I know it will do no good. Every one just wants me to be healthily. At least as healthily as I can be. But I hurt too much to exercise . I still try though. But I hurt and I want to cry and I feel so alone-
