Hey, Tiara, glad your training is coming along! Too bad about the other instructor though.
Shann, so hard to lose our furry friends. Glad you're home, though. Hope you're getting some rest.
DJ, I've been in three studies. Only one of them helped me, but I'm always glad to help out research any way I can. Sorry yours started out so slow but hope it goes well now.
So Monday I was supposed to go to two different family events for different sides of the family but halfway through the breakfast I got all dizzy and my legs went weak and I could barely even get out of the restaurant and then had to spend the rest of the day in bed. That's the third episode like that I've had in the last three weeks and then had another more minor one the next day. Weird. It seems to be my pulse dropping so whatever the tachydardia is trying to prevent usually, was happening. Oh well, maybe it'll stop once I get more rested up from the trip and everything.
I started a new med today that we're hoping will keep me more awake... maybe I can even write again!
No I don't, as a matter of fact. I have a belly lent collector. It also works for cookie crumbs.
CONGRATULATIONS BECKY FOR RANKING 9TH in the challenge!! Check her out here. It's a great story!!

If you want me to remove the link Becky, I will but I think mNY PEOPLE WHO POP IN HERE WOULD LIKE TO READ IT, THEY MAY NOT COMMENT BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN THEY DIDN'T READ IT. Man!! Chris got a new keyboard and my fingers get stuck more in this one than the ergowhatever one. I'm going back to bed to rest. Insert red heasd stomping off to bedroom after stopping off in kitchen to get rice cakes and yogurt but before stopping off to bathroom to..I can hear my kids yellimng TMI so I'm just stomping off. Mutter i probably should call the neurologist since my right side is weaker and weaker but I'm too busy stomping
WHAT? You mean I didn't HAVE to read it?
Ummm.. lead normal lives?
Wasn't wasted and you know it.
What no comment on my clever little quip? I thought that was quite good and actually even quite funny so TAH
Shalom all my little munchkin peeps!
My heart sunk a little at all of the trials so many have endured lately. However, glad to hear that you (short-stuff) are recovering well from your hip surgery. I soooo sympathizse with you in your recovery. It definitely takes detemination. My roommate has had both knees replaced, one houlder, and is now waiting for both hips to be replaced. She is like you tho....a trooper!
And Shannikins....so sad about your kitty passing on. (It was a kitty, right?) Either way...I hurt for you not be able to be there for him or her. I had to put one of my 15 year old kittys down a couple of months ago and then an old-timer dog of one of my clients and I was very attached to her. When I took her into my vet, they had a bunch of blankets on the floor with the one I donated from my kitty on top. It made me instantly start blubbering and the office felt so bad, but I told the it actually made me feel good to have Princess (the dog I had just brought in) use it. Bittersweet moment. Anyway, moving on...are you working on seeing a neurologist?
As for you back Miss Leahkins...having back problems myself...can soooo relate. Wise decision to see the WCs Dr. You never know what can creep up on you later from that one incident. I used to work in Workers' Comp for a school district and it's nice to hear that your employer followed the correct protocol to protect them as well as you.
DeeJay...nice to see you around, and although your trial beginning was lengthy, glad you will be able to benefit from the payment. Also, glad to hear you are taking challenges in stride with a positive attitude.
Jaybird...did I read your post right? You are okay and just gave everyone a little scare with heart palpitations? If so, do you know what caused it?
And Missy-Prissy Beakers....I read your story and found it sooooooo sweet. It revealed what a tender little heart you have.
Amykins...praying that your new med will do the trick. I can imagine how frustrating it is to have to put things you really want to do on hold....ESPECIALLY writing.
Okay....as for me....got me new laptop (using it now) but have been working on my roomates laptop she just got at a state auction and figuring out the hard disk drivers and reloading windows and GEEEEEEEEESH....you name it. Anyway, almost all done now but have to force windows to update all of the updates today, so decided to check in on y'all first.
Luv and appreciate you critters! Like for REAL and TOTALLY. I know "luv" is a strong word but you really are dear to me own little heart!
Okay...mes didn't forget pictures...just wasn't gonna chance loosing my loooong post. :mrgreen
K...this one's just for Sunshine!
Okay, here's what happened the rest of the day after I was at the research center. I finally get to the library, use my 1 1/2 hours on their computers--or try to--the computer had problems, so I quit with 17 minutes to go, and switched to my netbook. Around 3 p.pm. I got the dangedest pain in the middle of my chest. It was steady, but came and went from time to time. One of the side effects of the approved medications I'm taking--if I'm not taking a placebo--is chest pain; the other med is being tested, but I could also be getting a placebo for that too. It's a double-blind study, so neither I nor the research center know whether I'm taking the generic form of Zetia orally or a placebo, or if what I'm self-injecting every 4 weeks subcutaneously is the trial medicine or a placebo. Anyway, I often get chest pains when I have a lot of gas, but usually it's to the side, in "the girls" and sharp; this was in the middle and dull, though I have also had dull pain with gas. I had a hard time sleeping that night; if I yawned or tried to take a deep breath through my mouth, the pain went lower and got worse; taking a deep breath through my nose didn't do this. I'd taken simethicone and eventually it helped, but the next morning I used a menthol stick on the middle of my chest hoping it would do something. Fortunately, by the time I got to work, I was fine. I didn't feel bloated or anything, but I'm sure all that high-fiber stuff in the snacks they gave me was the culprit. I will tell them at my next appointment Mar. 6th.
Luckily, I haven't had any "accidents" since then, so I'm okay, but doing quite a bit of "degassing" from time to time. I'm fine.
