Roomie was supposed to leave today. She didn't. Now I don't know when or even if. I don't get it. She's raised havoc since she arrived and disrespected almost 90% of the staff. She told me she's disregarded but that I get preferential treatment.... Read more
I'm kind of stuck

One morning last week a guy came from the lab and drew a vial of my blood. Okay, no problem. Then, in the afternoon, a woman came from the lab. I told her my blood had been taken that morning. She told me that he "hadn't taken enough" and drew ... Read more

One of the CNAs here constantly has her earbuds in. Not surprisingly, she has trouble hearing what's said to her. The other day I asked her to throw away a plastic cup on my table. She picked up my phone and said, "Where's your charger?" I may b... Read more

Roomie is leaving Monday! I hope I get at least one night to myself before they reassign the bed. Meantime, this morning the plumbing is on the fritz (again), so the dishwasher is unavailable. The tree-hugger in me seriously HATES having to... Read more
It just gets weirder

On the plus side, roomie has been told that she has to leave by next Tuesday. I hope they give me at least one night to myself before they reassign the bed. But what's weird is, the regular CNA has become one of her more vocal defenders! Ro... Read more

At least I get to spend the day with my Ted! I'm very unfocused and scattered today. I have a shawl and a second sock to finish, and a partiall... Read more

Yesterday was my kid brother Larry's birthday. He ended his life 33 years ago. It's really weighing on me right now. This weekend has been tense and not happy. Someone passed away in another room yesterday. Half of the staff has called in s... Read more

I have been miserably sick for almost a month. It's only in the last few days that I feel even faintly normal, whatever that is. Now roomie isn't leaving until the 17th. Two months at a place she said on the first day was a "death trap" she... Read more

What a long, crazy several days I've had. I'm still having the pain in the left side of my face. The doctor keeps increasing the dose of a medicine that isn't working because he's afraid I'll get a rash from the medicine that might actually work... Read more
It's official

I'm officially old. Today is my 65th birthday. Tomorrow is my great-niece Angie's tenth birthday. I knitted her two pairs of socks (I never do just one pair, always two). I hope she likes them. She's a seriously awesome girl! ... Read more

Sometimes I think I'm in a bad comedy movie. Sunday night roomie howled that someone had stolen her teabags. A laptop and iPhone have sat untouched on my table for months, but they want her teabags. Right. They tell me I'm stuck with her until A... Read more

I have been sick for quite a while. I've had terrible pain in the left side of my face, bouncing from sinuses to ear to teeth to tongue (the tongue seems permanently damaged, although the Nurse Practitioner says she can't see anything on it). Th... Read more

This morning roomie called me too noisy because the headphone plug on my TV came loose. She said it was "blasting" her. This is the same person who has granted me roughly twelve hours of sleep in the last five nights because "I have important th... Read more

Yesterday was my Margaret's 36th birthday. I miss my feisty little redhead, even after all these years. I have had about eight hours of sleep in the last three nights. Roomie not only doesn't sleep (seemingly ever), but she spends all night... Read more

I got a new roommate yesterday. She says she's allergic to tap water, that the air here is toxic, she demanded "organic, cold-pressed coconut oil," and right now she's out on the patio lying on a mat (they DO have chairs). She's demanding to lea... Read more
