Cody's S. A. D.
Kitty S. A. D.
I think Cody has Seasonal Affective Disorder. Remember, he is my gardening buddy and my front porch relaxing partner. Now, he is restless, and irritable. He snacks and naps and walks to the door and meows. "Hey Mom, shouldn't we be pulling weeds and walking around the yard and sitting in the sun? Hey, why is there a tree... Oh no, it's Winter again!?!"
Yes, I know that sad little tree needs to be decorated. I hoping before Christmas. sigh...
I still think the flu shot gave me a touch of the flu. The Methotrexate made me queasy and weak and still very tired. I know it's job is to reset my immune system and in the process it's going to kill some white blood cells and just generally make me feel worse before I feel better. Gee, I hope so! I would hate to have to feel like this only to have it not stop the joint damage. There's a part of me that wonders if putting something so toxic in my body is not a good idea. But, to be able to function without pain is a goal I need to aim for. I miss looking forward to gardening and baking and well ,even getting out of bed is rather painful. I will give it a try. I can try the injectable method, which may be less "hurl" inducing. We shall see.
The kitties have of course been very patient. As long as they get food and attention they are happy. Stinky Goodness a few days ago was not fun to open! *o*
Billie seems to be a bit more tired. She eats fairly well in the morning and evening, but naps all day in between. She's never been a hyper cat and she is 13, so I will not worry much yet. She's due for a check up soon, so maybe the Vet will reassure me. She does seem to miss sunning on the enclosed back porch, so maybe she has a bit of S. A. D. too. I wonder how much those sunlight lamps cost?
I know I am so behind in visiting. Thank you all for visiting me. I just adore all of my bogosphere friends! Special Prayers and Purrs for Kelly. She is Scotchy, Sugar and Stryder's mommy. She is having major surgery today and will be very sore for awhile. Hugs Kelly!
Hugs to Everyone!
