I’m in a funky mood about the whole carseat, rear facing until at least age 2, thing.  We turned Lexi when she turned 1.  We consider her safe.  She is almost 2 and I’m not turning her back around.  I don’t understand how a child sits with their legs crossed, or up on the seat back, or hanging over the edge of the carseat.  I understand they are saying this is safer, but I also feel like if we turn Lexi back around now she will have a massive freak out.  I guess it will be something I have to do if/when I have future children, but for right now this is the decision I’m making.  I don’t like feeling like I am being judged for this decision either.  “Mommy” forums are so hateful and hurtful.  Reading through a forum I’m not even a member of, and seeing the way they were berating others who didn’t have their same opinion just floored me.  They actually went off on a lady for not having a 5 star crash test rated car.  Telling her she shouldn’t have her children in it at all.  It was a decent car…newer model year, not driving around in some clunker with no seatbelts or roof.  I couldn’t help but feel like I was being judged and I’m not even a member there.
IDK, I’m in a depressed kinda mood.

 

Drs appt February 25, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Danielle Brigance @ 9:36 pm

I got there and the nurse was super nice. She was really thorough taking my history. I got to see the PA since I had an after hrs appointment…they are open from 8-8. She was really nice also. Listened to all my problems and gave me mire than I thought i was going to get. She gave me a new prescription for birth control since I can’t get back to the health department to get my refill..and since pcos is a pain in the ass. She gave me a new prescription for thyroid medicine since I haven’t been able to afford to go back to the ob to get a refill…and since pcos is a pain in the ass. She gave me a new prescription for amitriptyline for my head, and a prescription for maxalt for my head. She asked me several times if I needed a refill of my lorazapam, which I don’t right now because I don’t need it hardly at all. But it was great that she asked. I go back in 2 months to see the dr for a full exam. He will probably request bloodwork, which I will have to work out in the budget, but needs to be done. Hopefully I can find some kind of assistance program for the maxalt because it’s really expensive without insurance. Overall I am very pleased with this new office. Now if I could only get a permanent job with insurance.

A new dr February 24, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Danielle Brigance @ 8:55 pm

Tomorrow I have a drs appt. I decided to try out a new dr because I don’t feel like my old one was taking me seriously. I just want someone, one person to believe me. To not think I am exaggerating, being over-dramatic or trying to get attention. I have kept a calendar of the past few weeks, marking every day that I have had a migraine. This week is the worst. I have had a headache every.single.day. That is unacceptable. I have been dealing with this for over 5 years now. It makes it unbelievably hard to get out of bed in the morning. And I continue to pray that it’s not partially depression creeping back up on me. I am also going to talk to the dr about my inability to sleep for more than 2 hrs at a time. That makes it hard to get out of bed in the morning also. So once again praying that is it…no depression. I just want to feel better. To feel normal. To not want to spend every second of my day in bed. So that’s it. I will update tomorrow.

Random thoughts February 12, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Danielle Brigance @ 8:53 pm

•I wish I could go back to the psychiatrist. I don’t always feel depressed, but I feel anxious and overwhelmed a lot of the time.

•I wish I could find a dr who truly believed me when I say i don’t sleep well. Seriously, I’m not trying to scam drugs off of you. I just don’t want to wake up 5 times every night and stay awake for 30 minutes each time.

•Lexi is growing up way too fast.

•Most of my anxiety stems from the lack of control in my life.

•I want to have a blog that people follow.

•The guys (Jacob, Brandon, and Dad) had to shoot a skunk tonight and that’s all I can smell.

•I would give up a lot of things in order to be skinny…food doesn’t seem to be one of them though.

•I want another baby…like now.

I guess that’s all.
