hey Ducky!
Hope you are doing ok, please know we are all thinking of you! Sending hugs your way.
Was wondering if it's possible to move the "happy monday" thread I posted today over to this one?  
Boo, I got something really neat in my e-mail today, made me think of you.  Was wondering if it was ok if I send it to you?

Hi all,
Know that Ducky is going through alot right now, so, until the new "moanin" thread gets going, just wanted to post something for all my pals!  Hope you all had a good weekend.
Boo, read your post, and you are really something!!  Are you a writer?  If not, you should be, the way you describe your horse...awesome...you see right to the soul. I need you to give ME therapy!!!  Did the baby arrive from China? Have you gotten to see her yet?
Erin, never could sit through those scary movies...just can't handle the suspense..jump right out of my skin when something happens...but my boys LOVE them all. What part of Florida did your hunny visit?
How you doing, Yally? Hope your shoulder is behavin'
Guess I will NEVER say I am feeling better, ever, ever again.  The very next day after seeing the doc, felt the familiar burning in my wrist,  which then moved up the arm and into the shoulder, then down my leg into the foot, etc.  By Saturday the whole right side was on fire and achin.  So strange the way you can feel that stuff creeping it's way through your body.  Then, in an unprecedented move of style and agility, I managed to fall going UP the stairs ( do not try this at home!) Landed right on my knees on the tile floor, bracing my fall with the already sore wrists.  hubby was right there, guess I scared the **** out of him, cuz he grounded me yesterday, wouldn't let me do a single thing.  Ok today I guess, some bruised knees (and pride), and jarred my wrist and shoulder, nothing serious it seems.  Thankfully, don't have the littlest baby this week, and the others can walk, so not too much lifting to do.  Think my new name is Grace....
Bear, how is the hip doing? Want to try that google thing, I've heard my boys talk about it, so when they can help me figure it all out hopefully I can give it a whirl.  Never have been the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to all of the technical stuff...but I do like to try.
CaMama, hope you are doing better do, thinking of you all the time.
Well, again, happy monday all...Hugs all around.
Jody

Jody, you can use my e-mail address anytime.  Grace, huh?  Hope you figure out that wrist/arm stuff soon.  Maybe carpal-tunnel????  Probably broken after the fall.  Just kidding.  And, yes, I write all the time.  Keeps me sane.  A couple of things published in the local newspaper (if you can call it a newspaper).  Mostly just rantings of a not so sane woman.  Good thing hubby was there to catch you.  I think mine would step aside if he saw something this big coming at him.  Not really.  He's caught me a few times but I almost weigh as much as he does now.  I can just see the headlines, "Husband Crushed By Wife's Fall".

Ducky, get better, Darlin'!  Been worrying about you.  I know sometimes when I get down it seems I'll never get out of bed again.  Hope you get to feeling better soon.

We don't hear many sirens out here.  They usually turn them off before they get to the hillibilly house.  I guess they try to sneak up on them.  

Rheumy appointment today, if I make it.  Employee took off yesterday and after I locked the front door, I turned the boiler back on and pressed clothes another 2 hours.  I'm thinking she'll have some excuse to not show again today.  She always does this when I've got appointments.  She's been working for us too long.  She's the one who gets her hair cut every time I do, buys the same clothes I do, can't let hubby and I have a conversation, etc.  I've got to hire new people.  No recent offers on the place so I need to go on as if I'm not dying to get rid of it.  My body is screaming today and I walk like a question mark.  Ugh! 

Think of me today, driving 40 miles in the rain to rheumy's office.  Not looking forward to that.  Not a good driver in the rain.  But my Beetle is a sure thing so I'll be ok.  Boo

Not moanin', not cursing, not in pain any more. Walking to the shop and back - about 200 to 250 yards or so - each day, but still not happy with my rate of progress. But at the end of the day I thank smeg that I will get there eventually and read the threads and reality check swings in. I don't have the sword of damocles hanging over my head like Ducky is with her job which she so clearly loves; I can climb stairs without heaving on my lungs or stopping for breath on the way up, [it's slow and I ache afterwards but its cool]; my partner drives me mental at times but she is a caring and supportive person who I love to bits; I no longer have the worry of caring for young ones like some of you out there and dealing with my own crises at the same time; I don't have to go  to  work one handed etcetera, etcetera, etcetera [King of Siam impersonation there] and I don't rely on a cocktail of drugs to make my life bearable - excuse the pun - and shift my body into gear each day. I'm sure you all recognise bits of this??? 
But I thank you all for putting up with this sometime malcontent for some day in the future all that I mentioned above will apply to me in a different dimension and I hope that when that day comes I can be a prop and support for and to others in a similar situation in the way that you all are to each other. [I have only had one infusion of the fermented grape juice so this is still the bear talking].
Keep the strength going ladies/girls/women/ hermaphrothingies for in your strength lies the future.
 
Sleep well

Oh Bear!  You are so precious!  I love reading your posts with or without the fermented grapes.  You don't complain half as much as I do.  But that's what we're here for, right?  You cutie patootie!

Just got home from rheumy's.  Didn't change anything, just had to give the vampire some blood and go back in 6 months.  Was almost late as "employee of the month" had to run an errand before I left and didn't come back when she said she would.  She always does %#@! like that.  I left her twice as much work to do by herself as I had to do yesterday.  So there will be wailing and gnashing of teeth tomorrow and I'll laugh and say, "Oh so sorry". 

I'm feeling especially onery today myself, Jody.  And it's not raining yet.  I don't see how you do it with so many little charges. 

I'm going to act like the Queen of Siam (?) et cetera, et cetera, et cetera...... and go to bed now and it's not even dark yet.  Yesterday did me in and still hurts.  I read some good stuff in rheumys waiting room about taking care of one's self.  Pretty good stuff.  Why didn't I think of that?

Oh Bear, don't you know how much your words mean here?  You have such a gift, I love to read your musings, look so forward to them every day.

Feel like I need to be the one to thank all of you for letting me be a part of all of this, I'm the rookie of the group, but you always made me feel welcome. Honestly don't know what I'd do without you all, you've become like family, maybe even better sometimes, because you truly understand...

Well, needed to do a baking marathon, sore wrists and all. 4 batches of different kinds of brownies for hubby to take to work.  He's having a tough time this week..works for the parks dept here, and has been moved after 5 years at one park, thanks to budget issues. Has been at Ft.DeSoto Park, anyone ever here of it?  If anybody watches Prison Break, they are filming parts of it on the beaches at the park, and a few years ago, there was a movie called The Punisher with John Travolta.  That was also filmed at the same park.  Just beautiful beaches there, ranked #1 in the US several times. Tough job, huh, work on the beach in a tropical paradise, and get paid? Anyway, new job will be much closer to home, but he will sorely miss the people he has grown to love there, and of course, the park itself. He tries to be a tough guy, but he's very sentimental and tender-hearted. His turn for some TLC.

Wrists are still a throbbin' and knees are a lovely shade of deep purple...oh, makes me think of another song "Smoke on the Water"...should have had that on my island list! 

Guess morning rest is over, back to the kids.  Was able to get them outside today for a bit, they love that, as long as the bugs and the rain co-operate! Mosquitos and no-see-ums like to carry us away sometimes..think the bugs here are immune to OFF.

Hugs to you all,

Jody (aka Grace)

Hey erin,

Guess we were on at the same time...."thankles" that's a hoot!!  I have those and it has nothing to do with edema...more like cellulite!!~  I sure do hope you feel better, fast..glad you're at your Joe's, sounds like he takes good care of you, exactly what you need.

Hugs,

Jody

Hi all. I never got an updated post notice, so I missed all your funny posts! I just scanned about 4 pages - you guys truly are the reason I'm still sane and alive. Thank you so much for being on this thread consistantly and listening to my whining!

I'm hanging in there. After 4-6 weeks of just feeling 'unwell' I do feel a bit better as a whole, though the joints are still bothering me and I'm still having unbelievable abdominal issues. No, I never started Enbrel, Erin. I did start Arava instead back in the spring time. It does help, but I'm loosing my hair and I'm started to wear down more and get sick easier.

Jody "deep purple" wrists do NOT sound fun! I hope you heal quickly.

Feel better everyone! I gotta go eat breakfast, I'm fading fast.

****

Well, I don't know what to say. I'm totatlly numb with shock and fear. I was offered a full time job today out of the blue. It's only (supposedly) for 3 months, but it requires a small commute and probably some OT. <sigh> It's for a prominent company here in SoCal and was difficult to pass up.....I eventually said "yes" with much trepidation and concern. One half is worried the job is not what they say they are offering the other half is worried about my health and sustaining a full time position for that length of time. (I landed in the hospital and lost the last 2 full time job I had due to illness/infection, severe flares, and my liver going toxic both times because I was not able to handle "it all.")  
 
I've been enjoying being a full-time mom not to mention my I can barely handle life as it is w/all my issues. It's only for a few months, it'll really help us out financially, and I guess if what I'm told the job entails isnt' really true - I can leave (though I probably won't because that would look bad, but I guess you never know.) Hey, it'll get me out of the house and the stress here, right? tongue THings have been tolerable around here since late last week - who knows what this will do, hubby and I will barely see each other while I work, so our few times together will either be strained, better, or as they are right now (somewhere in between.)
 
I start next week. <sigh> I'm filled with mixed emotions.  I guess we'll see how next week goes and decide from there if I should continue.
 
Thanks for letting me rant. ***

Yes camama, way to go. I can fully understand your trepidation but as you say it was an offer you couldn't refuse [and I bet you could do with the money]?]  best wishes to you and who knnows, it may be the saving of whateveer remains of your partnership - if this is waht you really want? How much time will there be travelling as it can be this that is the back breaking straw of the came? Whatever, there is nothing to fear but fear itself - go forit!!!!!!!
I have just spent a mainly sleepless night just dozing off for the odd hour here and there but there is noquality sleep at all and that is without getting up and watching TV for any length of time - maybe therein lies the answer, watch tv and get stunningly bored to sleep - man I do love those shopping channels.
How you feeling ducky? Hang n there girl and you will come through this the stronger I am sure. Easy for me to say though.
Erin, thanks for the mail but the connection isn't recognised so I have to google it and see waht happens but I am really interested to see what channels and stations the web site hosts. Muchos gracias senorita.
 
I'm gonna try and get some shuteye now so laterz y'all.

cool  moanin' moanin' y'all...
90 Degree! 90 Degree? confused whoo-hah...October 4th and 90 degrees outside today (near my parts that is) too bad they've locked the pool. scool
 
hmmm...post image? post image?....hmmm...nope! don't know Bear.  1 of the more PC-literates are better suited to help you with that problem. 
oh goshdangit...i probably wrote the wrong web address. nonetheless you have all of the pertinent stuff...maybe it's "XM sattelite radio"?...with a google i'm sure it'll eventually lead you to the right page.
 
CONGRATULATIONS CAMAMA!  i think this is just wonderful.  know what?...stop thinkin' about it and JUST GO!  like Bear said, fear will be the monster here; anxiety & fear may inhibit to the point where your esteem goes way south.
jump in with both eyes closed! seriously!  when i was soooo afraid to return to school after my 4th leave of absence...i literally was bound by doubt, constantly thinking of "ah God what if i'm sick next week!"...
as awful a condition i was in...and had absolutely no business being there...i JUST WENT.
the adrenaline kicks in...ya' start rolling with the punches...
before you know it, the 3 months will be over.
 
are you able to be seated? will you get a lunch break?  i'm a true believer in things happen for a reason and if this SURPRISE of an offering came to you? i've reason to believe you ought to open the door to it. :-)
ya' might not think it...but this just may make you "feel better".  not so much physically maybe, but in general...perhaps this will bring about a "general sense of well being".
worse case scenario?  ya' leave!  if you think about it....if it proves to be just too much for you to tackle, the worse that can happen is that you resign gracefully.
the 1 thing i'm picking up from you is this "the job doesn't turn out what it's supposed to be?"  is there somethin' foggy? or unclear about your duties/position?  maybe getting that cleared up right away will help ease your mind.
 
man i had a bum night too!  shoulders were actually throwing off heat (felt like a space heater) & it took  4 hours to fall asleep, then up every hour. ugh!...as much as my honey's bed helps, it can't trump steroids & joint pain. redface
my "thankles" are slowly deflating Jody! :-) i can now see my knees...and what looks like a thigh muscle? can it be?
people don't believe me, being i'm a bit on the small side...that I HAVE WRETCHED CELLULITE! tongue God awful it is. LOL. and streatch marks! oy!  i think they came about from dropping 30 pounds rather quickly when the Crohns disease was at it's worst. eyes the rich being he or she will be who discovers the remedy for cellulite & stretch marks.
 
peace/love

Wow, CaMama.  That's great, self-confidence building, "I've still got it and can take care of myself" stuff going on there.  Just try it.  Every day when you wake up, you have choices.  You're not locked in to anything.  You'll kick yourself if you don't go for it.  At least you can say you tried.  And if it gets to be too much...you're #1 and have to take care of the only body you have.  Good vibes coming your way [[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]]

So happy it's Friday.  This has been a challenging week to say the least.  I'm beat and need a rest.  Physically and emotionally.  Hubby Man stepped over the line and I'm reeling from it.  Trust issues and very bad judgement on his part have me thinking it's time to go.  I'm not even mad.  It just hit the well part of me this time.  There was an OW a few years ago and he's been "associating" with her family, a direct violation of the terms in which he would be able to continue to have a place to live.  I have no tolerance these days and don't think I should have.  Anyway, I'm in a mode of being exhausted and thinking like Scarlett O'Hara, "I'll worry about that tomorrow".  I hate to dump all this kind of stuff here but I'll not see my therapist for another week.  I know that you can't tell me what to do nor do I want you to.  It just feels good to get some things off my chest.  My brothers and my sister would have a U-haul truck at my door tomorrow (as would my children) if they knew.  So I'm keeping quiet.  I've spent many years going off half cocked and regretting my decisions made in haste.  I need to weigh the options. 

Joints are in pretty good shape right now.  Just fatigue.  I plan to rest the weekend away and maybe see some grandkids.  I need to slow down.  This week has done me in.  A weekend at the lake house would be a good idea.  "Cept it's supposed to rain.  I'll be checking in over the weekend.  Again, so sorry for the dump session.

moanin' scool
Boo i do hope you get to rest the weekend away...sounds as though it's vital to do so.  one can only take so much.  hey...when you're away this weekend: rent "Bubba-HoTep" tongue tah...it's bound to make ya' feel better.  "Stranger Than Fiction" was another one of my favorites this week.
anywhoos...i can not offer psychotherapy....BUT I CAN OFFER CINEMATHERAPY"In America" is another film that just leaves ya' warm & fuzzy; it's cathartic...you'll have a cry.
yeah huh?...you're past the point of anger...and it seems like your family is ready to jump when you say go.  you're a smart woman...you'll do what's right.
 
so who get's off for Columbus Day? anyone w/ a 3 day weekend?
 
i don't know if it's the altitude or what...but i absolutely am LESS STIFF & LESS IN PAIN in the mornings here @ my hunny's. even despite having a lousy past 2 nights w/ trying to sleep.
can't seem to get past the 10mg of prednisone. mad dangit! aiming for 5mg today...i hope.
hunny's BDAY is Oct.9th (my 1 year Remicade Anniversary too!)...no clue as to what to surprise em' with confused ...hmmm? he says to me "I don't want anything from you besides a card, that's it."  i hate that!  mad mad mad yes he knows i'm strapped for $$$...but still. i feel awkward.
my 5 year anniversary gift i picked out for em' is a bit more significant...i'm getting him a timepeice! an INVICTA watch. think it's Swiss?  it's beautiful, something more dressy than his old one. and February should gimme' enough time to save up.
 
i'll shut up now! :-) have a safe & happy weekend all!

Moanin..I don't post too often on here but I read often and so much going on here. I think about you often and Camama, I hope so much that your job goes well and all works out for you, I know it will take some time to get into the swing of things but you can do it. Reading about your job made me think about my return to school. Hopefully your husband and children will be on board and supportive of you since this will go a long way in helping to take some of the burden off.

Ducky...I just want you to know I think of you often, even if I haven't been posting here very much.

It's very frustrating that stress is a huge trigger for this RA...and I really hate RA! Not much going on here just trying to keep my family going. My oldest son is really going through a difficult time, seemed to come back from his dads angry and bullying and our house has been turned upside down by it, the school even sent home emails because his behavior is so severe. Finally had to take him back to the doctor, and we have not had to do this in several years. Looks like we are back to counseling/psych care for him and it makes me sad that his childhood with his dad was so tramatic, and we still need to deal with it. Last Saturday, we decided to take a drive and see the leaves changing colors, take the kids 4-wheeling, and on the way back stopped at a rest stop, and while taking a picture, a car pulled up and my husband who was supposed to be in the picture kept staring over at the girls getting out of a car...finally that night he told me one reminded him of the girl he always wanted to date, the same one he was e-mailing for an entire year without telling me. It has just been an unpleasant few months in our family needless to say! I am pretty certain I'm hanging on by a thread.

The Ambien CR is not working! and my insurance will not cover it since they just filled the regular ambien..I feel like Alexander in the book It's Been A Horrible No Good Very Bad Day!

Yalinda...I'm sorry, I hope I didn't offend you about the snoring!

Boo, Jody, Erin, Bear, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Oh my heart is breaking for you ladies...almost feels like I can touch your hurt.  I'm always incredibly saddened by the ability human beings have to hurt those that they have vowed to love and protect.. be it children, spouses, parents...why does it seem so easy to do? Seems to me that when crisis or stresses come along, those closest to us either rise or fall to the occassion. One extreme or the other, no middle of the road   Show either the best or worst of themselves, depending on what they've got..  Wonder sometimes if those are issues that were there all along,  bound to show their ugly face at one time or another, but the pressure cooker of life brought it out sooner.
Some people just don't seem be able to see beyond their own needs, and if we are at a point where we are unable to meet those needs...well..we're on our own. But. all of you know that you are not alone here!!
Anyway, I know that Bear will come along and dispense his wonderful insight and wisdom..and I mean that wholeheartedly Bear.  You have a gift, and you really do need to hang your shingle!!  From the other thread, do I think you are capable of analyzing us?  Most difintely, you always seem to be able to see right to the heart of the issue, and you are most respected.
Erin, I'm so very, very glad you are feeling better, and that your 'thankles' are dissappearing....hope your Joe has a happy, b'day...you in yourself are quite a gift..sounds like you have a wondeful man who apprecitates you!! Sending healing hugs to you...keep us posted on the good movies, always looking for some good ones.
Ducky, hope you feel the hugs and love everyone is sending your way...
Yally, isn't this the weekend you go visit your girl?  Hugs to you and have a safe trip..Enjoy!!
We're hot and rainy here, 90 degrees or so forecasted for the next week at least.  Oh, I'm so ready for fall!
Just two kids today, so feels like a vacation....funny little 2 1/2 year-old girl I have just cracks me up..Stomps her little foot, crosses her arms and says "NO FAIR" when she doesn't get her way...Don't know who put a teenager in that little body.  But what is worse....that I have a two year old arguing with me, or that I am actually arguing with a 2 year old???
Love to all,
Jody

Hi babyplace yes I will come along for those who wait long enough but it isn't any form of wisdom i can dispense just bewilderment and anger that Boo and momto3 can still hold on to some form of 'loyalty' to men who clearly to me at the least - judging from the posted info - have no longer got any loyalty to their partners who carry the family duties alone and carry their RA plus with dignity and integrity. Everybody will have their own views I am sure and are far too sisterly to say public what they may feel inside. [no criticism meant here]. Booo and momto3 please tell me if I am speaking out of turn here, but I can well imagine what say a man's reaction to his wife behaving in the same or simillar way. Boo you sound like you have al the building bricks ready to rebuild - go for it girl you have nothing to losebut your dignitty if you stay, enough already. But Babyplace put it much better than I ever could  - young boys grow up to be men only to grow back into boys again.
 
Erin - what a radio station!!!!!!!! we have nothing of the kind over here and it caters for just aboout every form of insanity that passes for music. Thankyou thankyou thankyou. tongue
Ducky, how are you keeping good lady? Hang on in there. yeah
 
Bar cub has decided to play mommy bear off against daddy bear but came very unstuck when the united front came together and read him the riot act. The root cause of his aggravation? The internet. We had decided that he was spending too much time on the net at the expense of his homework and general social isolation from us and we restricted his hours to 2 per night of his own choosing but off by 10 - even though he is 16. Well the explosion came and went adn he couldn't keep up his angst for very long - but he is a big sod and I should ever hate to see the day that I would have to fce him down.
 
Yally have a wonderful time withyour daughter - send her the Bear's best wishes.
 
God, it's nealr y2 in the morning time for attempted shuteye  loveto you al from the bear pit in Apsley.

Not speaking out of turn, Bear. I love your insight. As I told Jody, I'm ok. I OWN this place, the horses, tractor, barn land, trailers, etc. Everything's in my name. I'm sorry I put that on here. Not appropriate.
All I'm doing this weekend is sleeping. Headed there now. Looking at my crooked fingers and wondering how I'm able to use this computer. We're a resourceful bunch, aren't we?
You know, Bear, we didn't have a computer when my kids were still at home. Always heard the pleads and groans about being the only kids without one. There was enough trouble to go around with three teenage daughters. Of course they all have their own now and not enough time to use them.
Rain is coming in this weekend and I can tell. I'm a good barometer.
Have a great weekend. Boo

Boo, You've all always told me not to apologize for venting...please don't you.  You've been here to support the rest of us, let us return the favor..don't think you were inappropriate at all.

I'm sort of embarrassed by all my babbling on my last post..when I read it back just now, I sort of went What? My heart was just hurting for all of you who have posted about the times you've been let down, by fathers, husbands, whoever.  at various times of my life, have been where you are. Was left alone with two tiny boys  by a man who was so focused on someone else, he never looked back. Don't need to go into details, but have had my share of ups and downs, as we all have, and can relate.  Why do women stay, Bear?  Age old question....but think maybe one reason is that women as a rule, think of others first, especially if they have kids. It's the way they are raised.   They live their lives for their families, and have to weigh out how their choices will effect those around them. Divorce is hard on kids, not saying it's wrong, just hard, brings it's own share of problems. There is alot to consider. The very qualities that you admire so much in those women are the ones that make them able to hang in there when others would throw in the towel.  Do I think they deserve better ?  Absolutley!!!!  Hurts me to think of them hurting.

Well, I'm babbling again, so will say goodnight.
Jody

Two Wolves - A Cherokee Parable

An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life...

"A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

"One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.

"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

"This same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather,
"Which wolf will win?"

The old chief simply replied,
"The one you feed."
