About anglhrt48 I think I need a horse and buggy

anglhrt48 started this conversation

Hello to all,It is now August 31 2011. I am hoping that all is well and you"re safe in your life.I am searching for a good samaritan/mechanic that will help me. I have severe health problems,and desperatly need my car.I've no way to get to the Doctor's,Church,store or anywhere.I need someone to help me fix my car. I am 4th stage terminally ill since 2001.I am sick but I do know that there are others out there worse off than I am. I can breathe on my own and walk on my own(for now anyway, now the walking hurts me badly, But Thank God I can still until the pain takes me to the loveseat,where I am alot at this time.), point here is, I can still walk on my own.I have high spirits in spite of it all. My need is to find someone that will assist me in fixing my car.I fix it and then it breaks down again.I reckon if I am able to continue fixing it,at some point I will have all new parts,and it will stop breaking down.LOL!! Wouldn't that be great? Well On June 22 2011, I had to put  a new starter and celanoid, and have it inspected and they said they did a partial tune up which I had asked for a tuneup,But for the life of me can someone tell me what is a partial tune up.Anyway, It stayed at the garage for 2 weeks after it was fixed and once I had the last $180.00 of the charge which was $400.00 they let me have my car to bring home, I do have a great name when it comes to paying my debts off. Anyway you will never guess what happened. I drove it twice and the fuel pump went out.This saddens me and makes me mad at the sametime,know what I mean.Frustrated is a more precise word for my feelings than mad!!! So AGAIN it is sitting and waiting until I can save the money to get it fixed.Good thing my Dr. is so understanding.LOL I just do not have the money to keep putting toward repairs. Oh my! I am sure the Good Lord will supply my need.Thank you for listening to my need and May God Bless Each of you that is reading this. Hello to everyone I have not been in touch with for awhile now.My health prevents me from getting on here much any more. God Bless All. anglhrt48               Sincerely,anglhrt48

It is always great to hear from you! I am glad that you are still able to check in from time to time! I myself have not been on here as often as I would like. My health issues are still interfering with my life! Two weeks ago I had to have two more implants removed. It has been actually FIVE YEARS now that I have been struggling along trying to get my dental work done!
I had the bone graft preparing the upper gum line for the implants. After it healed, I had the implants put in. I am suffering from mal-nutrition (protein, Vit. D3 50,000 units, Vit. A, C and some B's & Iron). I was doing better for a few weeks, now my feet & ankles are so swollen I can't find shoes to fit them. Would you believe I use to be an aerobics instructor? Many moons ago when they still had step aerobics, cycle aerobics, and the different size balls. I loved that job, but it didn't pay as well as a legal assistant. However I was healthier! Just broke! LOL
It's 5:55 am...I better try and get some sleep. Love Ya! Thanks for the prayers. I need all I can get! (smile :)

That is high vitamins. I learned from a news story to make my bed in the morning as some spider got in bed and bit her. You really need to get the clutter out and clean as I find weird bugs coming in from the border of rug or from outside.. I hate spiders too and smash them if I can get them fast enough.
I take only vitamins I can chew, break open or smash and put on food.

 in response to Starshine...   Hi Starshine,
I am suppose to take D3 30,000 IU's. I wish they were chewable. They help A LOT! Mine are $56. and I have to get them through the pharmacy. I had been taking them for 3 mos. and then my van broke. So I, like you, wasn't sure how much good they were doing and they wound up on my list of 'Let Go's' to get my van repaired. The Lab test, my MD went over with me on Thurs. pointed to my need of D3 , Iron, Calcium, A, E & etc.
I take another lab Tues.   Hopefully, I will replace my vitamins this coming month!
I don't think things would have been so bad, had not a spider bit my toe! I now realize I have never been bit by a poisonous spider before! I ignored the stabbing pain in my foot. I did not associate the dizziness, & nauseous feeling an hour or two later. Then the headache began. Hot then Cold. This went on for two days until I realized I was limping with both legs now! My toe and foot pad hurt & was swollen. I soak my feet every night and put tea tree oil on them due to swelling. I decided to get a 6X mirror and see if I could see anything, like a sliver or something. Due to it being BLACK & BLUE now I figured I stumped my toe and didn't recall doing it.....; /
It was black and blue on the pad too! My doc seen it last Thur. and he ID it as a spider bite. He just said to go to the ER if it starts oozing and gets bigger or I get sicker.
It is much better today! Thank God! My immune system being as it is right now.....I think that is why I reacted to the bite so badly. I DO NOT LIKE SPIDERS. I know they have their purpose...but, I am afraid of them. I'm ashamed to say that, but it is the truth.
Thanks for sharing your Kal chewables. I think chewable would be easier for me to digest. Maybe they need to make 'gumable'.

I hope your liver improves for you. I take D3 but don't know what I pay for them. They are made by KAL 1,000 IU's chewable. I don't know how much they help. I think you need blood work or at least I ask for it when I go to the doctors.
Hugs and feel better

Hi Anglhrt48,
How are you doing these days? I did check out the place you told me to about car repairs, but I have not heard anything. When you said it took a long time for them to get back with you, how long were you talking about? I like you, live in the boonies. Since I can't walk very far due to lungs and spine, a vehicle is a blessing! I managed to get the tie rods repaired and it was going to cost $1400. But the guy gave me a break and charged me $1100. instead. Bless him! Still, on a fixed income...I did without the expensive vitamins (D3) and some others to make it happen. This past Thurs. my doctor said my labs were off. He said that my Alkaline phosphatase was too high. He said that tells him that my liver is over taxed and something is shutting down. If it hasn't improved in two weeks, I will have to go to the hospital and be put on a drip. I wish I had a laptop (lol).
We can only do what we can, huh? My van needs new brakes & tires now. Remember me in your prayers as I remember you kind friend :) You still haven't told me where things are with your health! I hope I will be back on here more regularly as I have taken on a new attitude! (actually it is one of my old ones I misplaced) I just have to work harder finding solutions to my problems as they appear! I use to play softball while my two boys were on Little League! I use to tell them that they just had to keep getting back up to bat and they would find that eventually, it would get easier & easier! :)
Hugs,
Sandy

 in response to Sandav1...   Hey there Sandav1 I am so happy to hear from you always. Go to www.cars4christmas.com and maybe they will help you with your van. I am so tired of asking for help that I am ready to just give up. Yes my car needed a new set of two tires and a new battery and new wipers and an oil change but Sears in Frackville Pa. destroyed my car in many other ways. So there I have no more money I can put to fixing the new problems, so I am just without. I can’t even get there insurance company to get in touch with me of course. Get this, the auto center manager offered me a $50.00 sears card if I call it even. Sounds like they may be admitting they did wrong in a round about way don't you. Got to get to bed and try to get a bit of rest. Good night and God Be with you always Sandav1. Sincerely, Linda 12-01-2010 Aidpage

Happy Thanksgiving mommy12345. I hope you and your children have a glorious and happy day.I am in need of a car or a very good mechanic who can fix my car.It took me a bit of time to save up and to send my car to shop but when it came home it was worse than ever.Was told they was gonna rectify all that happened while Sears had it.Now of course the auto center will not take responsibility for the things that they have done to it that made it worse than ever.Surprise Surprise Right? My Dr's are far away cause I live in the boonies and I have no way to get there. This car is not responsible to get me to the store or church much less a long trip 2-3 times weekly to the Dr's you know? So far in the North I have had a hard time finding help from anyone except this one nice man a few years back. I so wish that I was not sick but i am and to be sick with no way to get to dr. is really bad.This car may now be beyond fixing thanks to sears in this case I just need another one.Thank you for asking and May the Good Lord Bless and keep ya'll happy healthy and wise. Sincerely,Linda Use to be I could find a mechanic so easily and trustworthy but that was in Tennessee and my family members plus the mechanics in my hometown. I can't even find a fund raiser; listed up here in Pa. Thank you for asking me of my need.What is yours by the way

 in response to Sandav1...   Hello Sandav1. I am so glad to talk with you.Well I saved and saved and charged some to get my car in travel mode and trust it.UNTIL I took it to the closest to me Sears Auto Center.Boy have they done a job on it.They somehow caused a quick empty of the freon that was in my working (freeze you out) air conditioner.They sold me 2 tires that went flat within 4 months and so instead of replacing those new tires with other new tires they just patched them.They lost one of my center hub cap the part that says Taurus and I purchased 3 wiper blades two in front 1 on rear window but do not need it now cause once they touched the working rear wiper it seased to work anymore.Now my check engine light comes on and stays on (never before did this) and my engine has a click click click and hum to it and boy after changing oil and stuff my car also smells of gas something awful.Of course they are not gonna admit to fault and so what is a very sick woman to do.I was looking so to being able to get to the drs when I needed to.They blame all these things on the age of the car.Now I know that all these things do not go bad all at the same time.I had diagnostics done on rear wiper motor and grounding it back there the diagnostic showed it to work.But my button up front no longer would get it to work. His diagnostic did not so he said. Even the isurance that covers sears and the working they do on cars and all other issues I spoke with the woman 1 time on Oct.15 and then no one at all has called me and haven't still to this day.I finally called the auto center to see if they in fact did have my car and I inquired why no one has called me.I know why cause they knew I would not be satisfied with only what they had done.Hey even the front wipers I bought did not touch the see thru area when I was driving it one day and it started raining.I have never in my life been so upset and aggravated at anyone as I am them.I haven't much energy to fight.Shhh ! Don't tell them ok ?LOL.I give up I do believe.Things are gettting worst now and to top it off I am breaking out more with places on my skin and I fear it may be cancer.They will not heal and they will spread although. Have not gotten to dr to have Biopsy done.If only we did not live so far out in the middle of nowhere you know. Well how are you doing these days.I wish you all great things and may the Good Lord carry you when you can not carry yourself anymore. I will say bye for now must lay down for a few hours so keep in touch O.K. Later Linda

Hello teeteemes thanks for writing back. Hon I do not have Cancer!!!!!! I am 4th stage terminally ill(since2001) with Cirrhosis of the Liver ( due to acetaminophen poisoning) which was in my pain meds and when the ambulance got to me and got me back from te brink of death 4 times from here to hospital, when I got to the E.R. I had to have a tranfusion and the wrong blood they gave me was dirty with Hepatitis C and then all those other probs I wrote about. Hon I did check with Human Services they must have 2 -3 week notice of appt. and this bus is so rough to ride my patches can't keep up with the amount of pain. It takes all day to get to and by the time everyone is thru with there dr. appts it is about 4-5 in the evening. I have such a shot immune system if anyone is sick with bactreial or viral I get it and it really takes me wks longer than someone with an ok immune system takes to get over it.I am not able to go thru many infections I loose alot of weight each time and I need a car so I do not have to wear a mask and gloves until I get to the Dr or the clinic at the Hospital. Those things are hot and I know why it is so cold in the surgery rooms.Yes I would love to talk with you and so give me ur # and I will give you mine. Hon just a 10 minute time at store when I get to go to it puts me on the couch for hours and hours afterward due to the amount it takes out of me. I can not stand a whole day on a rough riding bus and be on it all day long my immune system is in bad shape and I get sick at a moments notice if anyone is around me with bacterial or a viral infection.    And I really have tried every where for help, and as of yet  to no avail. I'll keep pushing on you know give me your number my email address is anglhrt48@comcast.net until then happy Holidays sincerely, anglhrt48 aka Linda

Hello Linda, Thank you so much for  your lovely note. You are a special woman. I do use duragesic patches along with many other pain meds including fentora for breakthru pain and oxycontin (I was on dilaudid, we just switched to see if thisworks better). I go to the pain clinic at Stony Brook University, they take care of all my pain, depression issues. I love that Dr. Now on to you. I am so sorry you are so ill. There should be some kind of a cancer center at your local hospital that would provide you with rides to Dr. appts. At the local Catholic Church they have a charity/foundation called "Human Resources" and they are run by a social worker and they help get financial resources as well as rides to drs. appts.  I have a laptop (I highly recommend) if you type in your town, with key words like human resources, financial help etc. you should get some info. The hospital should also be able to help you with some phone #'s. Also, you should call Social Services and get a Social Worker. They will DEFINITLY  be able to help.  There are alot of local cancer charities, you just need to get in "the loop". Especially at your stage. I am so sorry for what you are going thru. My email is teeteeme@optonline.net if you want to contact me I will give you my phone # and we can talk if you feel up to it, or just need a friend. I know most, well all but 1 friend have abandon me since I got sick, my therapist says it is too threatening, it hits to close to home and it makes them think it can happen to them. Just know you are not DISPOSABLE you silly lady!!! and I will hear no more of that!!! I am going to try to do some research to see what I can find on line as far as support for you. I need to know the name of the hospital you use..   Merry Christmas,  Angel Heart,   Theresa

Hi Linda!

Wow!  I am SOOO Glad to hear from you!  I have wondered about you so often.  You can't imagine the smile you put on this face!  Thank You So Much for letting me know how you are doing.  You are such a special lady to me!  I believe you were the very first person that moved me to respond to!  I will write more later.  I'm having a bad pain night.  It is almost 4:am and I feel my meds starting to kick in.  There is so much I want to ask and share with you.  I just had to let you know what a joy it was for me to hear from you.  I feel very blessed!  I will talk more soon.  You are ALWAYS in my prayers!

Hi there Sandav.

    I hope you are doing better (at the least, not any worse although) right? Merry Christmas to you dear. Are you ready for this season of our Savior's Birth? You know it seems that each year it comes around faster doesn't it? I hope you will be with the loved ones in your life and I will try to always continue praying for you and your needs. Not that I forget you, it is that I set down and in a moments time I can be waking up never even knowing that I had been sleeping, weird; huh?

     Must be apart of my sickness altho my Daddy was the same way he and I sure are kin, "or were kin," ,that is a certainty. He passed in 1980, and my Momma passed in 1987, my little brother in 1990, and my 1 half sister, and 2 half brother's, passed in the 80's. Sure does get lonely when everyone is gone except one full brother . He is a nice guy but he fusses and yells at me too much ( I must say I do not like it ) and I do not think he understands the disease 's I have. In 2001-2008 he must have said to me that the liver does not hurt, around 9-10 times. I assume he also meant that everyone's Lver was a non feeeling part! I would like to know were he got his information? Don't you know? If he just knew the pain it causes, I am sure he would shut up, about it. I pray he will never physically, feel it, although!

       Well Sandav, Thank you for always showing that you have visited my site, and that you remember me, it makes me feel alot less Disposable. I hope for you that our Savior will provide for you all that you need and you will be back to your old self. Not that you are old just the past you before the world started falling apart. I must get to bed after I check for one more thing and try to rest. God Bless You and all you Love. Have a wonderful holiday and God Bless and Keep you safe.

                                                         Sincerelyy, your new friend ,

Hi anglhrt48, I have read your blogs a couple of times. At first, I didn't know how to respond. I thought about it for awhile and realized that I felt small in my dispair compared to yours. You are such a good person to reach out to those in need when you are suffering perhaps more. My grandmother raised me and she always would point out that there is always someone else who has it worse than you. Infact, I do more reading than responding. Not because I'm not moved...but because I become so Humbled in those presense of needs. I just lost my father this past year to Cancer. I couldn't be with him, but I called everyday. So, I know how sick you probably are at times and yet you want to reach out! Bless you, you truely are an angel and I will pray for you that your needs with come forth. Let us know how you are doing. Hugs, Sandav
