Third Party Presidential Debate!

I just finished watching the third party Presidential debate from C-Span. It was very interesting! The only candidates participating were Chuck Baldwin and Ralph Nadar. I had to watch it from the website. If you choose to do that, look under video archives.

On the verge of Osteoperosis

I had a bone density scan done today, and it showed significant bone loss in my lower spine, and I'm on the verge of Osteoperosis. Going to start taking Calcium with vitamin D.

I have learned something about the Fibromyalgia, DO NOT USE ARTIFICIAL SWEETNER! It makes the symptoms worse. The arthritis doctor had some blood work done, and one of the things he is looking for is Rhumatiod Arthritis. No word yet on the results.

I will update when necassary!

I went to the Arthritis Doctor this afternoon, and he seems to think that I have Fibromyalgia, although, I do not get the headaches that are associated with it. Personally, I think all my problems are stemming from all the blasted medicine I'm on.

Family Television

I have been thinking about family television lately, and the fact that there is nothing decent to watch these days on the "Boob Tube" as I like to call it. However, there are decent programs if you wish to go back 20 to 30 years.

My son and I have been watching "The Walton's" lately, as I have bought seasons 1,2,3 and 5, so far. And, yesterday, I sat and watched an entire episode on you tube. There is also "Little House on the Prairie" which I also liked to watch when I was a girl.

These are very good family programs.

Follow-up Doctor's appointment

I had my Drs. appointment this afternoon, and he wants me to see another doctor, an arthritis doctor as I do have arthritis in my back. And my Dr. mis-spoke when he told me that I had a partially collapsed disc, it is a partially collapsed vertebrae. No wonder it hurts!

He forgot about the Bone Density this week, so I will have that done in 2 weeks.

I am also on a different Cholestrol medication, as I cannot take Lipitor. That's what was giving me the Vertigo symptoms. I feel much better without that.

I go back to my Doctor in 2 weeks.
