New Medication and Still Attitude

Hello everyone, been a few days since I have posted but that is nothing new as I don't often post over the weekend, I am busy watching telly and doing nothing much. I don't think I have mentioned that I have been back to see the specialist about my tremor, still can't say what it is or what it isn't but I have been put on a new medication “Kinson” I have been started on only half a tablet morning and night and over the next few weeks it will increase to 1 tablet 3 times a day. At this stage can't see any difference but we will see how things go over the next few weeks.

We has both Blain and Leo here last night, oh what fun that was there was a lot of fighting and dobbing on each other and both Natasha and I lost it a few times with them but since Jessica had agreed to pick her friend up from the train station at 4am, she didn't want to have Leo as she would had to wake him to go with her and she didn't want to do that.

This morning Natasha took both boys to the park for an hour or so then I drove Leo home before I went to the post office to post off a few letters and get a couple of aerogrammes as I have a few overseas letters to write and send off and the aerogrammes are cheaper then writing a letter and buying a stamp, they are about 35cents cheaper and it may not sound like much but when you have a few to do it all adds up.

Natasha has now just gone to work so it is just me and Blain home for a while both Natasha and Tim should be home by 8pm tonight.

We still are having problems with Blain and his attitude, when asked why he has attitude he will say it is because of Leo which I said is not a reason it is an excuse and he is trying to make a scapegoat out of Leo. Then he said it was because his mum has to go to work, we said she has been working for a year now and since he is now 10 he should be able to deal with his mum working as most parents work, it is part of life so that is not a good reason also when his mum is at work he is fine most of the time so I do not think it is the reason for the attitude. Natasha feels there is something bothering him that he will not tell us about. She has talked to his father and if his attitude doesn't improve he may have to go and live with his father for a while but we are not there yet but we are getting there.

I am still going for a walk most mornings even though Tim has said why do I torture myself as often by the time I get home I am exhausted my balance is terrible and my back is throbbing, I continue to walk as it is good for me, even though it doesn't feel like it at the time.

So now I am going to post this and spend the rest of the day watching telly and answering letters

  1. I do hope there is a good solution to the root cause of Blain's attitude. And the new medication will work well for you too. Have a great new week!

  4. I, too think that walking it good. Once your fitness level improves you won't be plagued by the exhaustion and pain as much. Be sure you wear proper walking shoes though.

    Hope you figure out what is going on with Blain. That is a mystery.

  5. At this point, I think you can just read any of the above comments over again and say it's from me. Unless you just want me to repeat the. 10 year olds never know how to let out what's bugging them. I hope he slips enough to let one of you in.

    1. We all hope he let's slip something so we can figure it out although to be honest I think he is just going through a stage and after a while he will come through the other side and all will be good maybe his mum is looking for something that isn't there

  6. Jo-Anne I am grateful you have been to the Dr., and I wish they would be more caring about the cause of the tremors. That worries me.
