I did a dumb thing

Yes, I did, I did a dumb thing. Can you believe that???
 
I'm sure you can't!


 
My cell phone has a BIG green notification light, so at night, while it's charging, I flip it on it's face so I don't have to deal with a green blinking light all night long.
 
But 2 nights ago, I woke in a stupor, green light blinking. So I responded to the notification.
 
It was an email. A stupid spam email!
 
In my stupor, I responded to the email. I read it, it was about sex offenders in our area. Oh no, I must take a look because someone in the neighbor hood went off the deep end a few days ago about some weird sex stuff going on at his house! (he has dementia & the word of  what happened got back to us here) Nothing really happened except 3 patrol cars showing up at his house for questioning, nothing serious other than the poor guys lost grip on reality.
 
So anyhow, I respond to this email, thinking it was an amber alert instead. Stupid, stupid, stupid. I clicked on the link & put in my email address!!! STUPID! Now I'm getting spam mails like mad!
 
Did I mention how STUPID this was! I should put my cell phone outside at night....with my pain meds! Actually, I think it's the sleeping pills that are making me do dumb things at night. I don't take them very often. In fact, I still have a nearly full bottle that was given to me (prescription by my doctor) from several months ago. I wouldn't take them because I didn't want to stay groggy the next day. But she suggested I take them for a few nights because my pain was keeping me awake at night & yes, they have helped me sleep better....and do dumb things.
 
 
2 more days of Pred & I'm done with that. Which will be good because I'm hungry again!
 
I really don't know how people get hooked on meds. I'm following protocol right now, but soon, I'll be back to taking them ONLY when I need to. I'm guessing the dependencies are probably more due to chemical dependencies some people develop? I don't know. But I don't like taking meds much at all.
 
So no need to worry about me!
 
Oh & today, I've started wearing my clog type of shoes, just around my friends house for little trips to the kitchen or bathroom. They feel good as they have formed, structured inserts that curve with my feet. But for any bigger walking, I still put the boot on. I hope I'll be out of it soon. I think it creates pain too because it's so clumbersome & heavy.

I took Ellie out today & got her a little exercise too. She went to the dump station. She claims she feels much, much better & she needed her feet exercised too! (Ellie is my motorhome for those that don't know). Her tanks were FULL! I wish I had access to dumping here, but then, it's good to get her out every so many weeks to exercise the engine & tires.

Have a wonderful evening everyone!

  2. The only good thing is you can blame your dumb things on the meds, at least for the next few days. I don't have an excuse right now.

    1. Oh hell no, I've had this account for way too many years & have too much connected to it. I've not gotten p o r n spams. Just the typical type of spams. I'm sending them to the spam folder to block each one.

      Houston thanks you!!!

  4. Your title scared me! I thought you had damaged your healing foot or something. Of course, spam is no picnic but still .... Sounds like you are making great progress!

    1. Oh, I didn't think of that. But I could easily see where you thought that! Sorry. Yes, I'm doing well. Especially considering the surgery was only 3 weeks ago. I started using the TENS unit 2 days ago & started doing foot massage with topical medicine on it. I think that's all helping. Soon, I'll be in PT. I'm excited about your plans! Congratulations!!

  7. I'm with you on meds - hate taking them. I think it may be emotional dependence that gets people hooked, as those that NEED to take them for legitimate medical reasons usually don't get hooked on them. Glad you are making progress. So sorry about the spam thingy. I hate those stupid spammers.

  8. I have absolutely not excuse (liked meds) for doing something stupid with a credit card. Took forever to get it all straightened out. I hated the boot I had to wear because it was so big and clumsy. But it did help when I had to walk any distance.

  9. I am just getting around to reading blogs again since my computer has returned from the dead. I am glad you foot surgery went well and I wish you the best on your recovery. Don't blame you on the steroids I don't do well with them either. Hopefully you will be back to 100 percent soon. Well at least 99 LOL
