you know! I thought I had all the prescription/pharmacy stuff, worked out. Noooooooooot! I was told that CVS in Scottsboro would be sent all Ronnie's prescriptions. they only received 3 of the 5 they should have received. they were told thay 2 would be sent back to me. I have not received then but was told by e-mail that they just received them and they would be proscessd in 3 to 5 days

Got a delinquent bill notice today. I thought I paid it. I cancelled my pestcontrol service in March and I still got another bill in May. I guess I didn't handle Ronnie's first month home very well. I thought I paid it. While checking my online "bill Pay" I noticed that my emergency money is gradually dwindling away. I must start using more of Ronnie's Money for to help pay the monthly bills but I was trying to keep it all for therapy expenses. Medicare and Ronnie's secondary insurance falls short in providing enough therapy, in his case. Guess I must rethink hoe I'll handle things. I hope soon to cloister myself in the sewing room and forget my troubles.
I hope you all are getting on well. Gina, I am glad your business is going well. Marty, I like the thing you put the initials on. It looks nice. I still read some of the posts here when I can. Keep encouraging each other.

If you cannot spare but 15 or 30 minutes, I promise you will feel so much better just taking that few minutes. Even if you only sew 1 seam, or pick out 1 pattern, or sort a pile by color or size, you will feel better. You need to rejuvenate yourself each day for a few minutes so that you don't collapse from overload. Hugs to you ! ! !

Libby, When I can spare a few minutes I usually catch 40 winks but perhaps sewing a few minutes would make the 20 winks I can still get, more restful.

Friends, I just need to whine for a bit. I have been crying since Tuesday. Ronnie had a neurologist appointment that day and though he had a gastro intestinal virus, the doctor saw some improvement in his condition. He said he was surprised at the improvement and gave him the diagnosis of Alzheimer's. No one else has even suggested this possibility. Now to backtrack a little. I have had him tested for Alzheimer's 5 years ago and 2 years ago. Both times the doctors said their was no sign of it. Ronnie's mother and sisters had it. He never was the brightest crayon in the box, but for at least 10 years I suspected a decline in IQ and cognitive ability. That was the reason for the testing. Now I am permanently locked into a conservatorship and guardianship. The government control over how I manage our/his finances and property is leaving me with a huge weight on my chest because I can't seem to get my ducks in a row to get all the financial records gathered up and the proof of how I have managed his bills and accounts so far. I also have to provide an inventory of his possessions/assets ant their fair market value. What with getting Ronnie back and forth to therapy and keeping his diabetes in check and working full time, I am a basket case. I took Ronnie to his favorite breakfast spot and I cried there and then I cried a the grocery store. I have a psychiatric appointment on July 16. Its not soon enough. Am I foolish to hope the diagnosis is wrong and keep running myself ragged going to and paying for therapy? Should I keep hoping I have been wrong for years? Alzheimer's is misdiagnosed 50% of the time. I truly wish he and I could exit this awful situation. I must get this financial paper work gathered up but I am in a state of paralysis. I need suggestions based on anyone's research or experience.
1. The paperwork has to be turned in to the court by the lawyer on July 8. The house appraisal wont be ready till the 6th.
2. The IRS is holding Ronnie responsible for $32,000 in taxes +16000 in taxes owed by my son's business. The deadline to appeal this is July 15. My son has finely consented to release records for the appeal because his attempt to get them paid has failed. He helps with his Dad around 6-8 hours a day.
3. I haven't filed our personal income taxes and they due April 15. I did get an extension but I was trying to get all the paperwork together for that and began sorting it out on the Living room floor any keep getting sidetracked and forgetting what I had in mind to do.
4. I do not have any available time I can take off with pay. I am drowning and becoming more depressed by the minute. I lost my bottle of antidepressant.
5 I don't have anyone that can physically come help at the times I can use the help. I need someone to help with Ronnie a few hours and someone else to sit with me and help me stay on task. And I need help now!
