Some here and and other forums came around trying to figure out what was going on. They are not to sure yet but it almost killed me the other day. When i got to the hospital my BP was 50/33 My blood sugars were in the basement. They Put three different meds and never followed up on anything...Nothing!!! I am lucky to be alive i guess. Right now i am all over the scale with all kinds of mixed up feelings and I don't know what will happen yet. Thanks to the fact that i let a friend drive i would maybe killed someone or myself...
I am just thankful to friend and several on this forum put up with me. Happy motoring or what is your thing

You are in my prayers. Keep fighting. Keep your chin up.

An old family Doctor told me years ag that the way they were taught to be a Doctor was:
1. Examine the patient and based on his symptoms, general health and age, pick what ever illness was closed to his problem...provide meds for this illness and wait.
2. If the patient was still having problems a few days later, you move to the next most likely problem on the list.
3. Wait and see if the patient is improving and if not, move to the next most likely item on the list.
4. If the patient was still alive at this point, hopefully he was cured or worst case is he might die.

This old Doctor refered to those in the profession as a bunch of Witch Doctors.

Hang in there Dan,

Have your Doc check to see if any of your med's is working against another med of yours. It might be that easy of a fix.

Good Luck keep us updated, Mich60

So far see no change. Last night was up till around 5 am or so and got back up around 10 so it didn't help there but it may need a few days to take effect and work better. I still am having a dizzy like spell when I get up and want to do anything. Need to do work on coach and truck but I can just see me doing the back ladder to the roof! Under truck is easier.Guess I will see what gives there. Will see how it goes. I have to go back next month and see if there is any changes at that time.Seems to be low yet. don't seem to have much get up a get with it. Take it one day at a time,dan

It took most of the afternoon to do a GOF and get all the squeaks out!! There is several connections that I have to use a needle and that gets the tie rod ends and some of the other things lubed.other places like the rubber bushings on the arms can be quieted down with white lube or silicone. Sounded like a different truck with the noise gone for awhile!! Thats all I did today and will be looking at the kitchen as I get my stuff together. Have most but want to wait till after court first.

Well, Campers, Tomorrow is d-day!! I have agreed on a plea bargain but in this state the district attorney can be overruled and he can change it for time and probation or anything he wants so if it is no good sometime in the next 30 days i will know and then my attorney and I may have to have a jury trail. Won't know till it happens. Very interesting how the laws have been changed!! You can no longer protect your wife or home with a gun even if you are disabled. ... Anyway be warned!! Dan

Thumbs up

yes, I am back!!!Am doing better. I have done something that some one else told me to try. I got a list of all the meds I was on... Took them to the wally world and had a talk with the Pharmacist there! She looked at the med list and told me that there are two that are real bad ones. One I have been off now one full day and took me two weeks to get off slowly. Methadone!! Man that stuff is bad news!!! I feel better!! The other one will be started in aa couple of days as I still have the dizzy spells if I turn to quick. Not near as bad as before. I have been working in the kitchen area but slow. I hate this!!:(

On the new doctor list..come on down wednesday!!! Will see what he thinks should be done...Just can't wait!! Wonder if you can drag a doctor out back to give attiude adjustment!!! Just kidding. I see one of the clinic doctors on friday for the right arm and shoulder. I had rotator cuff replacement back in 1990...Think i may have worn this one out. Will find out.
