A Full and Busy day!!

I had another busy day today! This morning I slept in, which was nice! Then we didn't do much, until about noon. I had to drive my daughter to the beach in Summerside to meet a friend and her friend's family. After dropping her off, I had to run to the bank to get some cash then drive to a building around 45ave and 94st area. It was where a lady worked and I was buying her plug-in cooler from her. We wanted a small one for the car, although this is smaller than it looked in the photo. Still, it's big enough to hold a couple drinks and some sandwiches, which is all we wanted it for. It was only $30, so the price was right!! From there we went to South Common. We had to go to Michaels, where I bought some watercolour pencil crayons (they had some ranging from $12.99 to $139.99. I just bought a cheap pack, the quality may not be great, but hopefully they'll do until I can afford better ones or I find the ones I already own!!) and a picture frame. My daughter bought a couple books, a colouring book and a sticker book and some good markers, for colouring. From Michaels we went to Walmart. There I bought the kids some water shoes, for BC, as well as a bottle flipping game that my son's been wanting and I bought a learn to draw Disney characters book, just for fun, it was cheap! My daughter got a whole lot more than I did!! She bought herself a new pair of runners, which she could use, some towels, they're nice enough for the price! There were a bunch of movies that she's been meaning to buy, like Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Logan, so she bought those! Also, she bought her brother a couple of Pokemon chapter books. She found a really great deal for Sharpies and bought a set of them as well. After Walmart, we drove back to Beaumont.

Once in town, before we could go home, I had to pop into Sobeys and No Frills, to get supper. By the time we got home it was after 4:00! It took us a lot longer than I thought it would. I played my son's new game with him, for about a half an hour or so, then we had to start supper. We couldn't eat late tonight, because my son had his soccer practice after supper, at 6:45. By the time supper was cooked and we actually ate, it was time to go!! Tonight my hubby and I went to watch. My oldest was tired and works early and wanted to stay home to get ready for bed. My other daughter has one of her friends from dance over. They spent the afternoon together at the beach, then came to our house to have a sleepover. They wanted to walk up to the store, so they didn't come with us to soccer.

After soccer, when we got back to the house, I went through another bin in my room!! Yay me!! That's two days in a row I attempted to tackle the disaster known as my room! You can now see the entire runner carpet at the end of our bed. It's by no means finished, I still have a great deal to go through, however, baby steps will get me there! It is better than being so overwhelmed that you just do nothing at all!! I feel better all ready and ready to tackle the next part! The dresser! I have piles everywhere, because it won't fit in the dresser! So, before tackling the piles, I have to tackle the dresser! That way, I'll have somewhere to put the stuff as I go through it!! Hopefully, well…that's my plan anyway!!

Tonight I am able to talked the full dose of my new medication that Dr H gave me for sweating buckets!! So far there hasn't been even a little change, nope! Nada! Nothing! I'm still gross and sweaty, rain or shine. He told me to call him if these pills aren't working! So, I'm going to give it until Friday, then give him a call. He said there are other meds that can help with sweating and he'd just phone or fax in a new prescription!! He only works on Tuesday's and Friday's, so it probably makes sense to call him Friday, not Tuesday. This way, if there are any problems with the new med, I can still call him on Tuesday to tell him about it. Fingers crossed that the next one he tries helps!!!

Until tomorrow, Night All! 💤😴

Getting Things Done

I finished my project today! Yay!! I didn't expect to be finished so soon. I thought for sure that I'd be working on it right up until I leave next week. But, nope! I worked on it all day today, other than a run to Sobeys, that's all I did today!! I added the final details and coloured dots today. I'm going to take a picture of it and post it on here once I give it to the person that I made it for. Until then, I'm not going to say much more about it. I hope they like it!!

This evening I decided that I should start going through some of the piles of clothes in my room. If I'm going to be packing soon, I need access to my room. The way it is right now, you couldn't fit a suitcase in here no matter how badly you wanted to! I'm kind of accustomed to the piles, but I know that they drive my hubby up the wall! So, tonight I went through clothes for a couple of hours. I got through two big bins. I got rid of a garbage bag worth of clothes! There's still a lot to go though, but you gotta start somewhere right?! Afterwards, I had a shower to cool off and to wash away the dust I stirred up! So so much dog hair!! Our one dog sheds like mad, especially during the spring and summer. But those bins have been taking up space for over a year now!! So just imagine the accumulated dust and dog hair!! I found a couple of pairs of capris that I have been looking for since the spring. I found a bunch of stuff that no longer fits or that I know I'll never wear. Those are the things that I got rid of. It feels good to finally go through stuff! I also found one of my favourite t-shirts that I haven't been able to find!! All in all, I got a lot done and made some good finds!

It's getting late, so I think I'm going to keep this short tonight. Until tomorrow! Night All! 💤😴

Packed Up My Watercolour Supplies!

Today I woke up and played games,

On the iPad with my son.

It was a new game we just got.

It was really fun!

Then we flipped for my coffee!

We tossed the pod up and in.

He turns anything into a game!

So creative I don't know where to begin.

I filled in lots of the colours,

Working on my project today!

It's a slow process,

That much I can say!

I gathered all of my watercolour supplies,

For my mom and dad to take to BC.

Now I don't have to take them on the train

My parents will have them for me!

They're starting on their way tomorrow,

But stopping in Calgary on their way.

There they'll visit with my aunt and uncle,

And keep going the next day!

I had to drive my stuff to their house,

Since tomorrow's when they go.

My younger daughter joined me for the ride,

We stopped for gas you know!

I couldn't think of anything better to rhyme,

So I wrote that there.

I probably don't need to explain myself,

You likely don't really care!

The words on my post are coming up strange,

When my dad opens up his copy.

I don't know why it's happening to him,

It looks really sloppy!

Every, single apostrophe looks something like this: &amp!!

And I don't know why!!

So I can't fix the problem for him,

Even if I try.

It makes it impossible to read,

What a pain in the ass!

That just seemed the best description,

Sorry I lack class!

We had leftover spaghetti for supper,

When, from my parent's, we got back.

We even had garlic bread!

The food certainly didn't lack!

It's probably not the best for me,

I keep forgetting about my points!

If I don't watch myself carefully,

I'm going to do a number on my joints!

I couldn't find my watercolour pencil crayons,

It's really bothering me!

I hope I can find them before I leave,

I don't know where they could be!

They weren't on the list of supplies to bring,

But they're something I like to use.

I find they work great for detail,

It's the only white I have to use!

So now I don't have any white paint,

In all the stuff I brought.

I hope I gathered everything,

I feel like there's something I forgot!

If I think of anything else to bring,

It'll have to come with me.

Because my parents have my stuff now,

It'll be ready and waiting in BC!!

I'm going to run to bed now.

To sleep I'm about to fall!

So this is the time and place when I say,

Night All! 💤😴

Another Project Day!

For some reason, I haven't been able to share this on Facebook the past couple of nights. I don't know why not. It's not working. I'm doing the exact same thing that I always do, but it's not sending it to Facebook. There's probably another way that I can do it. I'm just not sure how. The current way was simple though…it gives you the option to share it immediately after you publish your post. You just hit "share" and then "Facebook" and voila! it will automatically be there. But now it's not working and I wish that I knew why. I know that I actually have a few people who only read it in Facebook, they aren't subscribed and receiving my posts in an email. I feel bad that I can't figure out what the problem is. I'm trying to think back to when it started and if that coincides with the new update to WordPress. Because, then it could be a glitch with the program and nothing I'm doing or not doing. There used to be something in the settings that I had set up so that all of my posts automatically went to Facebook. However, that stopped working and they added the share page that pops up right after you publish your post. Weird weird weird…

Today I spent a great deal of time working on my project again. I'm getting pretty into it and far. I started on the colours today!! It's starting to look good, if I do say so myself! I admit that I'm awfully biased…and so are my kiddos, and they say it looks good. My hubby is indifferent, but he knows it's important to me. I wish I could show it on here, but I can't. So, it's just as difficult as I thought it'd be. There are so many little fine details that are important overall, but easy to mess up. Very fine little shapes and stripes and dots and zig zags. It's difficult getting them all right or making them look like they're meant to lol like. Also, the way one of the names hangs drives me crazy, but it's too late to fix it, so I have to live with it!! It's going to have to be good enough, because it's permanent – it cannot be changed!! I just hope it's not so obvious to everyone else as it's painfully obvious to me!! We are our own worst critics after all!!

I took a break from my project and my hubby and I cleaned off the top of our dresser. It wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be. Usually, cleaning with myhubby is difficult, because he wants to throw EVERYTHING OUT!! I truly mean EVERYTHING!! He doesn't grasp the concept of sentimental value. Period! Doesn't get it, doesn't understand it, doesn't feel it, it doesn't exist in his eyes …period! He grew up rough. He moved all the time, his childhood was extremely transient. He didn't have a lot of "things". And, even if he did have something, heaven forbid you get attached to it, nothing is forever and it's here today, gone tomorrow. They left with seconds notice, often with the clothes on their back. Nothing would've left to be attached to. It's pretty sad, I think, so now he's this big fake hard ass (because he's a big softy on the inside!!) When it comes to "stuff" he truly has a hard time understanding how something can be meaningful. He's like, "just take a picture of it!!" So, I thought cleaning the dresser would've sucked, but it wasn't bad. We went through stuff quickly and most of it was easy to get rid of. I even went through a stack of papers that's probably been there for three or more years!! Easy peasy!! Now our dresser is cleaned off. There's a few books. A picture, the wii, the tv, my doc and just a couple other things.

Afterwards, I went back to my project while my son played a video game. My hubby had a little nap. Then, once he woke up, he played a video game with my son. I made spaghetti sauce and pasta for supper. We drove my daughter and a friend to her other friend's house. Then, around 10:00, we picked them up. When we got back we got ready for bed , which is what I'm about to do right now!!

Night All! 💤😴

Still Sweating!!

So far, the pills that Dr Hauptman gave me, to help with my sweating issue, aren't helping at all!! I'm still gross! I'm only at half a pill until one week and then I go up to the full dose. So, hopefully the full dose helps. If not, he said there are other medications and he'd start me on one before I leave for BC. I still have my fingers crossed that these will work, but so far I've noticed no change whatsoever. It's good to know that there are other options and it's not just this or nothing!!

I worked on my project some more this morning. It's starting to look good, I think I'm going to like it! Once my oldest came home from work, we watched the second Descendants movie. It's a Disney channel movie. It aired last nights and the girls PVR'd it, since my oldest had to go to bed early, because of work. The first one came out last summer, I'm pretty sure. It's a fun concept. It's about the children of classic Disney movie heroes, princesses and villains. The villains have all been captured and contained on an island to live out there lives. But the new young prince (the son of Belle and the Beast) convinces his parents that the children on the island deserve a chance. He believes that they don't deserve to be punished for the actions of their parents. So, as a trial, he picks four of the children to come off the island and go to the fancy boarding school that he attends. So, the daughter of the wicked queen (from Sleeping Beauty), and three other villains children are taken off the island and brought to the school. The story goes from there. It's about fitting in, finding yourself and becoming an individual and not being defined by your family, but by who you are etc etc. Of course there's a love story, etc. The new one starts not long after the old one ends and tackles the same topics. It was fun. There's singing and dancing and it's good, fun family entertainment. My oldest just finished reading three books that go with the movie. The first one is supposed to be read first, then the first movie comes next, then the next two books and, finally, the new movie that we watched this afternoon. She said the books are really good and fun to read.

After we watched the movie, we went to my mom and dad's house for supper. My son wasn't even with us. He went with his friend and friend's family to K Days. My mom and dad live in a condo complex for adults only. Their condo backs onto a path and Millcreek. My uncle and aunt, (my mom's brother and his wife) moved into one of the condos in the same complex just a week or two ago. They're trying really hard to get settled, but it's a lot of work and neither of them are in the best of shape right now – they both have injured backs, which makes moving and unpacking, etc. very difficult. This afternoon my aunt called my mom to see if my dad could help them move a shelf, but my dad just hurt his back the other day. So we all went over to pop in and see their new place and, while there, my hubby moved the shelf with my oldest daughter for my uncle. My dad had to make some wedges to go under the corners of the shelf to keep it from tilting forward. They also secured it to the wall. So it shouldn't be going anywhere any time soon!!! Once we got back, my mom prepared supper and my dad BBQ'd it once it was ready to go on. We had steak, potatoes, sweet potatoes, beets, bread and fried mushrooms. It was very good!! After supper, we went into the basement and watched the dances that my daughter was in from the year end show. Afterwards, we went home.

I'm Beaumont we picked up my prescription and we picked our son up. Then we came home. My son and hubby briefly played a video game, so I worked on my project for a while. Then I briefly played with my son, got our water bottles filled and voila!! Here we are!!! I'm driving off to sleep as I write this, so I'm going to stop writing now and get some sleep. Night All! 💤😴

Working Hard!!

Today I worked for hours on the project that I'm working on. The one I'm not going to talk about on here, because I don't want to ruin anything. That probably doesn't mean much, but when the time comes, I'll take a photo of the finished product and put it on here to show you. Although, it has my kids names on it and I've never said their names on here! Hmmm…I will have to figure something out!! I could just describe it…this gives me something to ponder. I don't think saying there names would be a huge deal, because I'm pretty sure that all of the people who read this know my family, so it's not exactly big news or anything!! Well, anyway, I worked on it almost all day! This morning, when I first got up, I played a couple of iPad games with my son on the bed. However, as soon as we got up, I started working on it and I continued to do so until we had to go to camp, we left at about 6:00, to pick up my daughter. My son played a video game with my hubby and then went and played at a friend's house for a few hours. That's why I had so much free time to work on my project. (I just about said what it was!!! I have to watch myself!)

We didn't get supper ready on time, and then we had to leave to go get my daughter from camp, right at supper time! So, we were all starving while driving there, it's about an hour drive, with no where to stop on the way!! So, we picked her up and by the time we were driving home, we were sooo hungry!! We ended up picking something up in Leduc, but it was a pretty late and unhealthy supper!

My daughter had a great week at camp! She had sooo much fun! She actually said that this was her best week at camp ever!! She has been going to Camp Wohelo since she was about 10months old and I took her to mom and kids camps!! Then she went to all girls camp and many others, more recently, she's been doing the teen leadership camp for the past few years. She told them her availability for the rest of the summer. She will be going back to be an LIT (leader in training) for 2 more camps this summer. She could've done more, but she told them that she can't this week, because there's a going away party for a friend that she doesn't want to miss. Then we'll be gone for a week or so in August and there are no camps the lady couple weeks of August, because they rent the camp out privately. So, with when she's available, she's going to be there. She was already missing people and saying she wants to go back sooner, before we even got home. She was also saying how bored she's going to be. But, she's the one who said that she couldn't go this week, because of the party. That was her choice!

When we got home, my oldest was just getting ready to shower and go to bed. She had a rough day at work. So she wasn't in the best spirits today. Hopefully tomorrow is okay or at least better at work for her. My hubby and my son decided to play another video game. So, I got back to work on my project. All I know is it's going to take hours and I'd really like to have it finished before I go to BC, in two weeks from today! On the expensive train, because of the mistake that I made when booking it. I'm super excited about the train, I just wish I had purchased the economy escape ticket. If the stupid bank had let the payment go through the first two times that I tried booking it, I would have gotten the right price!! But the dumb arse bank thought it was fraud, because I've never purchased a train ticket before! I tried again, right after talking to the bank and that is when I ended up spending the $300, instead of the $188 plus GST!! Too frustrating!! That's $100 difference!! A lot can be done with $100, like I could eat on the train, with money to spare!! I better enjoy myself, for that much money, I could've flown for less and been there in 1hour – the train leaves at 7:30am and arrives at 11:00pm!!! That's 15.5 hours! That's probably BC time, the 11:00pm. I would think so. I have a lot to do still to get ready and my parents said that they'll take my art stuff with them ahead of time, so that I don't have to travel with it. That is good, because some of it is awkward to carry. Although, I am allowed 2 checked bags. The problem is, my mom and dad are leaving Monday and none of my watercolour stuff is together yet. We're going to their house for dinner tomorrow, I'm going to try to get it all together beforehand. Hopefully I can. Otherwise, I may have to drive it over to their house on Sunday. If some of the things that I need overlap with what I'm using for this project, I'll just bring those with me. It should only be a couple things that will need to stay until I'm finished my project. Most of the watercolour stuff can go with my mom and dad. Tomorrow will be busy!! So, on that note, I should get some sleep. Night All! 💤😴

Supply Shopping To Show Watching

This morning my son had a birthday party at Gateway Lanes to go to. They played laser tag. While he was at the party, I had a couple of hours to kill. I decided to go to Michaels to get the rest of the supplies for my watercolour class. I found everything that I needed. I'm not sure about the quality, but I should be fine. I know it's more of a craft store than an art store, but it does have a couple of isles devoted to painting and drawing. It was enough for what I needed!! I already have a bunch of things at home and I already bought the few things I talked about the other day. Today I got one more paint brush, the angle brush or dagger. I searched it and they seemed to be the same thing. Hopefully that's true, so that I have the correct brush!! I already have a good, expensive round brush and the brush for doing the wash. I have some others, but I have the three good ones now. I also bought another sketch book – only because it's beautiful, not because I needed another one, lol! There's a picture of a beautiful watercolour tree on the front and I fell in love with it. I bought the masking tape, a new eraser, a cool eraser guard thingy for the thing I'm currently working on, (I've already used it!!) it is super thin and if you need to erase a tiny spot, it has different shaped slots cut out that you can erase through without accidentally erasing too much or the wrong thing!! I got the basic white wax crayon, that was easy, as my son has a gazillion crayons, it's even a trustable!! I got the specific permanent black, India ink mark .05 tip. I think that was everything. I feel like I'm forgetting something. She's supplying the paper and you can always use her tools if you don't have something. There's also an art store in SalmonArm where I've bought last minute things before. I'm sure I'll be fine though. I probably have more than enough!!

Once I was finished at Michael's, I went to Old Navy. I tried on a dress that I really liked, but I was looking for another pair of shorts, preferably denim shorts!! I didn't find any shorts that fit right, their selection was diminished. I did find a pair of jeans that fit, they were even on sale for $17.99. I figured I could buy the jeans and cut them into shorts!!

Following Old Navy, I drive back to Gateway and popped into Dots when I got there, because I was early. I didn't actually think I'd find anything, but I found a pretty tank with a navy and white print in it, for only $9.99. So, I bought that too!! Then I went inside Gateway Lanes to pick up my son. I arrived just as they were about to come upstairs!! Perfect timing!! He had lots of fun playing laser tag!! He wanted to stay and play longer or go bowling or something, but I didn't really few like it. So we drove home from there.

Once we were home, I was starving!! So I had something to eat. Then I searched through a pile of medical receipts. I remembered that my hubby accidentally moved one where we were supposed to get $100 back if we mailed it in. We need it now, with the cost of the train!! So I found it. I just have to fill out the form and mail it away and usually within a week, we get the money deposited into the account. At least it should be here by the time we go on our trip!! Every little bit helps. My

Hubby is freaking out about money. Now he said he found the leak (something has been leaking in our laundry room) he thinks it's the hot water tank. Not good!! We need to figure it out and it's not something we can afford right when we're going to BC in two weeks!! Argh!!

I cut my jeans into shorts and I sat fraying the ends while my oldest and I watched the final two episodes of the series we've been obsessed with!! And, just like that, it's over!! There was a big big twist at the end…something you couldn't have predicted at all!! Crazy who AD actually is!! That's all I'm saying. I'd hate to ruin it for anyone!

I got the kids Rotten Ronnies (as my hubby calls McDonalds) for supper. I had a salad from Sobeys. After supper, my son and I played Guess Who for a while. Then he played a video game with my hubby, while I worked on the thing that I'm not talking about on here, so I don't ruin any surprises! And, after that… bed time, here we are!! On that note, as my eyes drift shut, I think I'll stop for the night!

Night All! 💤😴

Train Mistake!!

There was an update on the WordPress app. I don't know what's changed. It said that there's a new editor. I'm not sure what that means…I guess I'll see if anything, either than the font size, is different. Backspace isn't going to change, so it doesn't save me from falling asleep and accidentally backspacing over what I've written. I wish that even if you accidentally backspace, your last save still had the things you typed. Then I'd just save more often, so if I do the damn backspacing bullshit, whatever I accidentally got rid of is actually saved. It would make sense. If I delete this sentence, but had already saved it prior to accidentally deleting it, as long as I don't do a new save of those changes, the sentence should be there. That wasn't very clear, so hopefully you understand what I mean. I'm going to test it. I'm going to save it now, then backspace this sentence away. As long as I don't save those changes, this final sentence should still be here!! Here goes!! Ha!! It worked!! I was right!! I finally figured out what to do! As long as I'm up to date with hitting "update"(which is how this program saves) and I don't "update" when I've accidentally backspaced, the stuff I've written will be back!!! YAY!!! I'm so happy! I just have to be on the ball with updating my progress as I write – which is easy to forget when I'm tired. I guess I need to form new habits while writing!

Hmmm…it also doesn't automatically double space!! So, today I did a big "bleep" up!! I really really did! I screwed up big time! I was buying my train ticket for BC. The last few times when I've checked the price it's been around $200, we'll, $188 plus GST. So, today I went to buy it. I filled in all of the information did everything had "economy" selected and purchased the ticket. Then I looked at the receipt and boarding pass. The receipt was for $302!!!! Not $188 plus GST!!! I went back to figure out what I did wrong, as I have looked at it a gajillion times and I filled everything out the same way. Well, I figured out that the difference is that before it was showing me the price for "economy escape", but I bought the "economy" ticket. Turns out "economy escape" was sold out, so I was bumped up to the next cheapest ticket!! And…if I want to change it or cancel it, to take the bus or something, there's a $70 charge!!! I could have flown there for that price!! That's what we originally looked at, but the train was cheaper!! Now I don't know what to do. No idea at all!! I'm going to have to figure it out, it's only 2 weeks from now, but I do know that we didn't want to pay that much. Do I call VIA rail and explain my mistake? Do I just go? I don't know at all what to do. The only difference between the two tickets is that for the cheaper one, you have to pay a 50% service fee to transfer tickets and you can't cancel it Arizona all. With economy, you pay 25% to transfer and the same to cancel…argh!! I don't know what I'm going to do. You have no idea how thrilled I am about going on a train through the mountains. It's something that I have always wanted to do!! Sigh…

Other than that royal mistake I made, I had a pretty calm day. I got all of the towels washed and folded. I worked on a drawing that I'm scrambling to get finished before BC. I also watched a bit of our show, with my oldest daughter. This evening was my son's soccer practice, so I watched that. My mom wanted to go shoe shopping this afternoon, but that didn't work out. I was going to get my oldest to watch my youngest while I went with my mom, but my daughter was really tired after work and ended up napping for a few hours once she got home. Also, my hubby doesn't get paid until tomorrow and even though I need new ones, I can't really afford to go shoe shopping… especially after my train ticket fiasco!! Well, I think that is all for tonight. I'm going to head off to bed! Night All! 💤😴

Sweating Spider-Man

My dr gave me a new medication to help with the sweating!!! Yay!! I’ve never been so happy to be adding a medication to the list!! Usually it’s all about trying to get off meds. This time it’s like, yay a new medication!! He said it’s a safe med for long term use. He also said that excessive sweating is one of the most common side effects to the types of meds I’m on. At least two, if not three of my medications can cause excessive sweating. He also said that we should know in a couple weeks or so if it’s helping or not. If so, great! If not, we try a different med. I’m very happy. He also gave me a prescription for orthotics for my stupid plantar Fasciitis. I have no idea where I take the prescription to actually get the orthotics. I’m going to search online tomorrow and figure it out. He also said that if they don’t help, that he can prescribe a cortisone shot into my heel (ouch!!). He said that people find a lot of relief with the cortisone shots. However, it does really sting when being injected with the cortisone. But, if nothing else works and that will help, I guess that I’ll go for it.  

After the dr’s office we (my hubby, my oldest, my son and I; my dancing girl is still at camp!!) went to the matinee of the new Spider-Man movie. It was entertaining.  I enjoyed it. I liked how he was figuring things out, learning how to be a superhero. He didn’t have these powers and then bam! He’s suddenly the best fighter, taking down the bad guys etc. I liked how he was just a kid figuring out what to do with these new found powers of his. He struggled, it wasn’t automatic or easy. He had to figure it out. Anyway, it was a good movie!  

On our way home from the movie, we stopped to drop off my prescriptions at Rexall and we went to Sobeys and bought stuff to make sandwiches for supper. The sandwiches really hit the spot!  

It’s only 9:15 and I keep falling asleep as I stare at my phone. I think I’m going to go get ready for bed now. A nice, long sleep will do me good. 

Night All! 💤😴

Sweaty Issues!

Tomorrow is my Dr Hauptman appointment.

It fills me with excitement!

I’m going to find out if there’s anything,

We can do about my sweating!

I’m sick of always feeling wet!

How gross can you get?

I can’t wear makeup on my face,

It drips away, leaving a disgrace! 

The back of my shirt always feels wet and gross,

That’s one of the things I hate the most! 

On hot days it gets so bad,

It’s starting to make me really mad!

I need to shower all the time,

Using up water like a crime!

It’s from my pills, my Dr said.

There’s something I can take, this is what I read:

(Taken from the International Hyperhidrosis Society’s website)

There are a number of oral (taken by mouth) prescription medications that may be used to manage certain types of excessive sweating. The medications work in a variety of ways to systemically (in your body’s whole “system”) limit sweating. They do this by helping to prevent the stimulation of sweat glands and thus decreasing overall sweating. 
 Oral hyperhidrosis medications are best suited for patients with certain types of excessive sweating such as excessive facial sweating (cranio-facial hyperhidrosis), generalized hyperhidrosis, and those who have not had success using other therapies such as clinical strength antiperspirants, iontophoresis, Botox, or a customized combination of these. People who have compensatory sweating from ETS surgery, sweat over a large body area (such as the back or chest), need temporary relief from sweating every once in a while for a special event (such as a performance or presentation), or have excessive sweating secondary to a medication or medical condition may also find success with oral medications.

Anticholinergics:
The most commonly used medications for managing excessive sweating are anticholinergics. These include medicines such as glycopyrrolate, oxybutynin, benztropine, propantheline, and others.

Tomorrow I’m going to ask him about these meds.

It even talks about sweating as a result of meds!

I’m tired of lying waking up soaked!

This whole sweating issue has me choked.

He’s mentioned a solution in the past,

I’m sure he’ll give it to me if I just ask!

That’s why I’m so happy I’ll be seeing him,

Because this sweating is super grim.

To be able to wear makeup again would be nice.

Now I try, but I have to think twice.

Even mascara ends up making a mess!

Who knew sweating everywhere could cause such stress?
