Boo, thanks for the input on the 'biotics.....I'll have to do some research on all the meds I'm on. I'm having a new theory - you know, I went 13 months w/o getting the least bit sick...I'm on Arava for 2 months now and I've been sick twice, coincidence? Doc said my white cell count was down a little after the 1st month....I wonder.....
I'm a total lightweight myself. 1/2 a glass of wine and my mouth goes numb.
Erin, if you can, let us know if they're checking you in - we don't want to worry! HEY! I'm a rusky as vell! Grandfather is from Byelorussia (sp?) and my grandmother.....not sure, possibly Moscow. I minored in the Russian language as well (not that I remember a lick of it after all these years of illness beyond das vydanya!) Not sure why I can't drink....must be the disease knocking me under the table so fast!
I'm sorry you are so sad about the kitties - but they will have such a good home, it sounds! This is a good thing, trust me!
Bear, it was my throat before, it still is my throat....plus a sinus thing this time around, the cough is probably due to the itchy throat and sinus drainage. I took some mucinex-D yesterday and it helped, today I tried Allegra-d and boy did it make me loopy (but it helped as well)! I was afraid to leave the house today. Luckily, I didn't have to other than dropping off and picking the kids up from school. I think taking care of my son's sinus infection (after I finished my antibiotics) as well as a few other things, probably got me sick again. I tell ya, they need to invent the antibiotic stay with ya bubble!

moanin all! I feel miserable. My toes hurt,they kept me up last night along with being itchy, stress, and some anger...now I feel worse and am in an awful mood. This cold/whatever has moved in to my chest and my throat is hurting where it tickles and is making me cough terribly. My son woke up congested - ugh....he only has 5 more days of school and a bday party tomorrow....hopefully he makes it thru w/o getting sick. The rashes are still present. I put some cortizone on them as they are so itchy.
I remember growing up, the schools made us get check ups, including getting weighed. It was so embarrassing! I always thought I was fat because my mom was always on a diet (I wasn't then, but am now...and now my mom is really thin)....and they had us stand in line and get weighed. Then they'd say how much we weighed outloud! Not knowing was was an acceptable weight or not, I figured I always had reason to be ashamed.
I'm still here. Just crazy busy. Had psych appointment in the city this week. Long drive in the rain, of course. Felt like that stupid cloud was just running along on top of my car all the way. And to a Psych appointment! And wouldn't you know the sun was shinning when I got back to town. Little down this week. Didn't want to have to resort to treatment for depression with everything else that's wrong with me but I suppose that's all part of the magic that is ME.
Pool sounds wonderful. I used to do water aroebics (sp) on a regular basis and it really helps. We talked about putting in a pool but our well isn't a very good one and I just want to move to a newer house with easier access and more land. Maybe I can find one with a pool. Of course hubby would have us living in a junk yard like Sanford and Son. He seems to be happy with "stuff" in the yard like the hillbillies across the road. Have to keep on him about that one. He's got it all cleaned up now and moved the stuff to the corner of the pasture in a shed. He comes from a family of pack rats. His sister lives in a new home, very nice. One room is full, FULL of stuff from probably the '60's that she can't part with. I told him I'd kill him if he ever did that. That's what garage sales and Goodwill are for.
Helping a friend with a wedding today and tonight. Will probably sleep all day tomorrow. Good to get back on here and talk to you guys again.
