 Okay Patti, I really hate when you are feeling down one day, then I like don't hear from you for like 2 or 3 days. What's up? Write back, or I am taking the next flight out to Florida, and you know I hate busy places and rude people . That could really be detremental (sp?) to my health. (((((((((((((((  Thinking of you))))))))))))))))))))
I will ramble a little more, procastinating the laundry.lol Anyhow, did ya notice I have been using the like alot more? Hmmmmmmmmmm....... interesting. I hate the word, it sounds dumb or at least make you sound dumb. Had to take out a student loan, for my 6 , repeat 6 classes. It's all good. Classes start, MOnday. You haven't seen manic with me yet.

I was wondering the same thing - you tend to do this when you're down, and worry us all!  Is Kevin still there?  Have you made an appt with the doc yet?   If he's gone, do you think maybe that's the ol' comedown after something fun is over?  I know, it wasn't all fun, I am sorry about that, did you guys make up?  If he's gone did he leave on an OK note or not?

Well, one good thing about Nickie being a little "hyper" is that she is a crack up, right?  Just go read all her posts today, I bet you laugh!  She even made me laugh when I was really pissed today, not an easy task!

God, 6 classes???????  How?  That's a hell of a full plate, hon, I just hope the mood swings don't make it too hard.  I beleive you'll do fine, tho, you're very strong when you have to be.

Hi ladies. Kevin is still here and I AM TRYING MY BEST TO TALK TO HIM...but he is a man, so u know what the heck I am dealing with. The reason I am feeling so bad is an issue on the UC (ulcerative Colitis) Forumm. I am really sorry, as if I were u ladies I know i would want to now ALL the details. Which I promise I will tell, however I have been having unbearable headaches via side effects of my UC meds, which I started a month ago u would think they were gone by now..but NO!!!!! Anyway, I just want to apologize for all I put the both of u thru. You both mean so much to me, I really want u to know that. Now, I must get back to putting the pillow over my head, turning off the lights, and asking God...WHY ME!!! Havent I been thru enough? Cant I TRY to enjoy my husband??????? I will try to tell all tomorrow if i can see. Shannon, I am sorry u r having a problem. And Nickster, you are the bomb handling 6 classes! It is a miracle if I can put make up on...LOL!

Love you both Lots,
Patti ;~)

Hi, Patti - are you doing some better today?  How about maybe going to lunch and a matinee with Kevin?  I love doing that - we try to go every weekend (if there is something worth seeing), it really picks me up and doesnt take any effort or energy, yea!

I know your headaches are bad, can't you take some pain reliever?   When I had chronic, crippling migraines I took Fioricet and they helped, not to mention made my "mood" a little better if ya know what I mean!  YOu're sooooo lucky, Kevin could just set up up, no doctor visit required!  I would totally take advantage of that!  Or vicodin, yum. yeah    (Not trying to be a drug pusher, you understand, just trying to help you feel better so you two can actually enjoy some time together!)  You NEED to do something enjoyable together.  Or play cards or a board game if you don't want to leave the house.  At least you aren't chained to the toilet with diarrhea!  Your bladder infection should be gone by now, it's been over a week, so how's that for some er, opportunity! devil

Try to think of something good to do, instead of dwelling on what's wrong.  I know it sounds stupid, but you really need to take advantage of the time he's there, I promise if you will just do something good, anything, you will feel better. :-)

Don't worry so much about people on the board, I know it's upsetting, but Kevin is oh so much more important!

I do hope you feel some better, and I'm sorry if I sound like an idiot, lol. eyes

Hi hot chicks. Sorry it has taken me sooooooolong to get back to you all, but my head was killing me so friggin bad this a.m.I was almost going to the ER for a shot of Demerol. And,Shannon, I take Fiorecet w/codeine for my headaches (30 years of grand mal seizures have done a number on my head, and I have headaches daily) even before I was geting these side effects from the Entocort EC. But, at lest it is working (the entocort) as I am having bowel movements like a normal person, no more side aches, etc. Anyway...here is the story, and Nickie if you tell me that I dont have to tell u if I dont want to I WILL BE ON THE NEXT FLIGHT TO MICHIGAN!!!! You know you ladies can ask me ANYTHING you want,I love you both and consider u my friends, so why the heck wouldnt I want to talk to you both about it??? Dingbat! There is this guy (Mark aka musicmork) on the UC  board who is really down and out and got a script from his doc for Entocort, and he started a thread asking about it, so I went into all the ins and outs of the drug thinking I was helping him. Well my friends, tht is where my mistake began. He started emailing me privately telling me that KNEW he had Cancer..late stages and a bowel obstruction, and to please help him get thru it. So, like the butthole I am, I was just trying to help him. Then he tells me that he has issues with his Gastro, the doc never has time for him, etc. So, I tell him that he should look for a new Doc as the Doc should handle his needs, and the Doc works for him, blah, blah, Now understand that this man has NEVER had a Colonoscopy. So, I am not understanding how the Gastro can treat him when he hasnt done the proper tests (peed a few members off at me, why..u tell me)Then he tells me that he has done the prep and gone to the surgical center 4 times and chickened out (he is 51 y/o by the way).So I thought it was time for some tuff love...so I started asking ? that apparantly a few members didnt like...so the Forum Moderator closed the thread. Trust me u both can look if u think I am wrong, but I swear there was NOTHING from my end that was against the rules, not to mention I think the worst thing I was guilty of was helping a fellow UC person!!! Then (before she closed the thread) one of the members, who thinks her crap doesnt stink, not to mention she thinks she knows EVERYTHING somehow makes it so I cant read her posts (answers to the threads)and I didnt even say one thing to her, but for some reason that is beyond me EVERYONE treats her like she is an online Doc (prior to this the Moderators made her state at the bottom of her posts/threads that she is not a Doctor, so I just want u both to know it isnt my opinion, only) and ALWAYS asks her opinion over the other members and treats her with the utmost respect. I cannot even begin to tell you girls how hurt I was. I was pacing, couldnt sleep, wondering what I did wrong. So, I then decided that I was DONE with a forum where people can get away with that. I then began re-reading Mark's threads and I swear to god you guys it was the same thing over and over. Asking people for help, then they would give him their advice, he ACTED as if he would take it, then ask another member the EXACT same thing and so on. Anyway, a couple of the Forum Moderators (emailed meprivately) and asked me not to quit coming as everyone has the right to help, and I help a lot of people. I do not know if that is their "job" or they did it because they cared. As u both know, my email is on my profile, and after all this Mark dissed me (trust me, he has NEVER helped or had words of wisdom for the other members)  and so has a couple members. You are correct, there are A LOT of people that I have helped and do not want me to stop, but darn it I cnnot handle the "mean" members. You guys know how sensitive I am. But, Shannon u r so right in that Kevin is more important. tongue   All that said...let me move on to us. Shannon, Kvin PROMISES that he will attempt to find a pic of all of us and email it to you both. And honey u cracked me up yesterday w/ your post about the Linenes and things experience. I feel the same way...WHY DO U HAVE TO HAVE MY PHONE NUMBER WHEN I AM BUYING LINENS, so I give them a false number as I know it is just for marketing purposes devil Nickie, my baby I am worried...please do not get mad, as I know u r SO intelligent, but 6 classes is a lot! Especially with that precious lil girl of yours and Jason. And u better send me and Shannon some pics ASAP! Now onto the Kevin issue. OK, he doesnt think I am BiPolar 1 or 11! His reason is that he says "I have never seen the "manic" side of you!" Maybe I am wrong, but I do know that I have a severe chemical imbalance. Not that I WANT to be BiPolar (please dont think I am disrespecting either of you nono ) But, I think I am BiPolar, and if he is right then why am I the way I am? It cant be depression, or I would have gotten better by now. And Shannon, I havent made my appt. as he (the pdoc I was referred to) will not be back for another week. But, u know me well enough by now that I will be on the phone next Thursday making an appt. Unlike some people, I ask for advice and TAKE IT. Why the Heck would I want to waste other members time? So, I think this long enough to have pissed u both off yeah which is, of course my intention! Please analyze this story and tell me what u guys think I should do. Please? I know it is a pain in the butt, but I value both of your opinions so much, it would mean a lot to me.

Hope to hear from u both before the day is over.

All my love to the hottest chicks,

Patti scool

Hi, Patti!  I went and read that thread (took me forever to find it!) but I totally and completely agree with you.  The guy is totally feeling sorry for himself.  Not to be mean, but i have seen WAY more of those kinds of patients than I care to.  Nothing you do helps.  They complain about everything, they are so negative they don't even give meds or other advice a chance, and they are alarmists, always thinking they have cancer without even getting tests, because they dxd  themselves online.  Thanks for letting me rant.  These patients have more psych issues than medical in most cases.  But they don't want to admit that, they just want the attention.

I think what you said was spot on, even if it was a bit "brusque"?  I remember a certain someone who shall remain nameless that I tried the tough love approach on.......... :-)     But seriously, you tried to help and you give good advice.  I just don't think he wants help, only wants people to listen, adn that;s fine, that's what support groups are all about, but it's also about letting fellow sufferers help you - after all, sometimes I think the sufferers are better experts in some ways than the docs!  I truly love this forum because I have never had BP friends that could understand all the subtle nuances never published in journals.  It's great!  If someone told me something worked great and I hadn't tried it, I would darn sure try it!  Try not to fret too much.  I didn't see anyone getting on you after you posted, were they removed?

So, you didn't say, are you and Kevin going to go do something together?  I hope you do. 

Oh, and you better quit stringing me and Nickie along with this "Kevin's going to send a pic" stuff!  *teasing*

Also, if I EVER get obnoxious like that person you were talking about ("online Dr."), tell me or shoot me in the head!

Ya know, I have seriously had my doubts about your dx of BP.  You just do not sound it at all.  If you haven't had at LEAST one true manic episode lasting more than 4 days, you are not BP.   I think you need a second opinion from the pdoc, which if he's good he will give you anyhoo.  IMHO you have depression/anxiety disorder with possible panic as well.  That doesn't resove itself, either - it is also a lifetime thing and needs the right combo of meds, just like us!  But either way, please stay here! yeah

Hey Shannon. Why must u make me cry? I know u do it out of love...but be a *****!!! (kiddin) No one else would have done what I asked u and Nickie to do..read my lips NO ONE!!! Isnt it amazing how we (or me for sure) can love someone so much, when we havent even met???? Trust me that girl is a pshcho *****...nothig like any of us. But I would tell you. I admit and am so sorry that I thought u were not so nice (do NOT get mad at me) in the beginning. But, Shannon I didnt know you...I know u know who! I feel confident enough enough now to tell you without the fear that u would abandon me. But, I highly doubt that would EVER happen again. You were trying to help and I took it the wrong way, we worked it out like adults and now even tho we havent met I lean on you more than anyone else (except Kev). Anyway, being that I am retarded, Kevin wants my computer...TO SEND YOU AND NICKIE THE PICTURES. One thing about me is when I mke a promise, you can count on it! Let me know if u get it, and if it is in color.

Lots of Love,
Patti ;)

 Okay I am not even about to attempt to go threw and look for some persons pathetic attempt to lay out his life story and not even consider one persons' opinions. What a fruit! Anyways, lets do lunch guy if ya beg to differ. I see it all the time. It's sad ,because some of us really value another person's opinion especially, if asked. Whatever! eyes OMG, total frustration do you remember Patti what I told you to tell your neighbors, when you first started the forum, tell that dude the same. he he. Gosh Nick, settle down.lol Shannon vented , I wanted to.

Ok, about the pics , I believe you, I am going to get a new one, unless you want a few years ago, I am still hot now, but really thin then. That's about the only difference, but I am not about to do no false advertising.lol   It's confident.... not conceited.lol I am cracking up. What goes up must come down, mood changed again? Don't ask me I just live in my body!

about the classes Patti, ahhh...... I will be fine, I work great under pressure, this is my only semester like this, then it's just my surgical classes. Are you doubting me, sometimes I do, but don't tell anyone.

So Shannon, are you worried you sound like Dr. Welby? Lol I am rolling on the floor laughing my a**off! Yeah right, you give great information here, you have facts, sites to back them up, oh and that other small thing... YOU ARE A NURSE?   GEEZ..... Not to mention you have BP, and have been through it all and are now stable, and to remind us , or let us know, you still have not so great days yourself. It's informative, knowledge, from a respectable f****** BP. Get it the " f" word. To anyone else, this is a joke in one of the lastest threads. ( Please no hate mail, it really is a joke, who says the f word more, me or Shannon). Anyways, alot of people including myself wouldn't know what to do without ya girl.

Okay last but not least, about your dx, of BP. I have never really witnessed your manic side either, Kevin would know more than us here. Unless you sign off when your manic, I am opposite I think, of course I am just all over the place. I think if your not, great. Maybe with all the problems going on, it is causing your depression or attacks? It's a possibility. You do have alot going on. If you are only a doc will know, although your husband is one. Still keep your appt. , you will want to get treated for whatever it is you are experiencing. I hope you are not , and I am soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo glad Kevin is there with you right now. If you are not , you better stay here though. Well at least drop us a few lines, ya know.One more thing, Shannon, is it possible you haven't noticed my manic side. I am being serious, I often wonder if people notice. Do you think my dx is right, you know I question it, and go off my meds,but I have to go right back on.If I was normal , could i just stay off them? Holy s****, did I just right all that? OMG..... I need to do something else, like clean ...oh wait that's done!!! BYE scool

Hi, Patti!  You cried about that?  You're so silly! :-)
 
how ya doing today?  Paul made me stay up late, we were watching "stupid videos.com) - you should go there and watch them - they are super short little videos that are just hilarious, well most of them.  It feels so good to just laugh!  We do that a lot for entertainment (small minds are easily amused, lol!)  Here's the site:
 
Nickie, of course I don't think I've seen your real hypomanic self, just a little hyperness, it's funny!  You're kind of all over the place and sometimes your writings are a little hard to follow - that's when I worry because I'm afraid your going to get full blown, but then you usually "crash" a little.  you're almost stable but not quite, I think maybe your swings are more severe than mine.  But since you rapid cycle, they don't last too long.  I'm rapid too, different moods all in the same day.  Unfortunately it's the hardest one to treat, beside being type I, it's hard enough!  But I try to loook on the bright side (there I go, f****** optimism, lol), and remember how BAD the extremes are!  And that it will change soon if I'm down.  And, as for your query, yes, your dx is spot on -   mad    ( i just love that one, for some reason it cracks me up, esp when you do it!)
 
Have a nice efing day :-)

Hey girls.I WISH we could all do lunch...picture that...hey wait I sent YOU some pics. Talk about hot, Nickie
PROVE it! You are all talk...we dont care how old or new it is..WE JUST WANT TO SEE YOU! Shannon, ever notice how the biggest frights think they are hot, then attractive women like you and I think we are not attractive..ITS PICK ON NICKIE DAY yeah OK ya' got me, I finally got lucky last night. All infections have checked out skull ! This is the first a.m. I woke up without a frekin' headache. So, Kev is at Home Depot and I just dont get it! Ever since the Hurricane he friggin' lives there! Even when he is over here in Lauderdale, And it just cracks me up...he is just so not a "Home Depot"kind of guy, if u know what I mean. That is why he is there constantly...he is clueless as to what he is doing tongue  , then he comes home and orders whatever he went to Home Depot for and orders at another place online...I swear to u guys it is an ongoing joke w/my sister and I. Oh yeah..'fore I forget, Nickie I wanted to send u the pics also, but dont have your email addy, I know u sent it to me, and anyone's addy that isnt already in my laptop AOL automatically sends it to my address book, but for some reason, yours isnt there. So, please either post it, or email it to me. Shannon have u EVER in your life seen anything as cute as Shera? I swear she is human. She gets sooooo mad when Kevin and I kiss, touch or anything! She abuses her sister CoCo, and she is so little she cant fight back. The other night (I know, how pathetic, can I get a life, blah, blah) i was torturing her. I was playing w/her and I was calling her CoCo, telling how she is Mommy's baby.....but where is Shera (meanwhile it was Shera in case u r not following), "CoCo, where is Shera u r so cute...but where is Shere" I swear to u that she was so mad she wouldnt let me touch her until today! She is very jealous devil  . Sometimes when she wants attention, and I am on the computer she stands on the keys so I cant type!!!! I swear I will go POSTAL when this dog goes bye bye 4-ever. As far as my dx, Kevin isnt a pdoc. I mean it is not that I hope I am Bi Polar, I am just trying to be realistic. But, shannon your dx makes a lot of sense also. Now as far as my opinion, I think EVERY mental problem I experience is hormonal, but we shall see. And Nickie if u think u r getting off as easy as me "dropping a line"...not gonna happen. I love you girls wether u like it or not, and u r STUCK with Pats (a nickname my friends call my boobs). And trust me I am counting the days until I can go see this pdoc and find out what the hell it is! I have to go water the plants and put a load of laundry in...I will be back soon to see if u got the pics Shannon and hopefully get Nick's email addy. Be well and Ill see ya' soon. Oh yeah, lastly Shannon kev thinks u r a babe! He luvs redheads, and he LOVES your doggies too. I talk about u guys and he says "Shannon is so pretty, loves dogs, Nickie is a riot, why cant u find friends like that to hang with confused " I say.....I WISH!!! The good ones are only in cyberspace!

Funny , funnny Patti! Okay, I will send you something. I swear I don't know how. But after my surgical meeting , will get a picture it's not an old one, actually I think it was last year. I know it's been since my daughter and since my dx, which happen to be right around the same time. So within the last 2-3 yrs. , ok boobs. You guys are a hoot, I am just getting you all pumped , so then I can send you my pic , and your like well she can loose a little weight. Whatever. Anyways, here's my addy jstruth777@comcast.net. Congratulations on your luckyness. I know it's not a word but hey I didn't know what to say. tell Kevin I am a brown haired chick always pretending to be blonde. I will send the pic . I never said I "thought" I was hot, although, kidding really. It's always good when your self-esteem isn't the greatest to tell yourself you are. tongue So I hope you won't be disaapointed! hehe Your right about not finding friends like this in the real world, cause if you put us three in the real world that could be hazardous to a normal person's health. LOL Sorry I am amusing myself, gotta go to my "important meeting". Ha             Nickie

Patti, horned in on your post with your friends, sounds like you have some great people here, I just wanted you to know that everyone, or me didn't get the impression that the thread was locked because of you, several of the posts were locked, and not all involved you, and I'm sure the moderator emailed you because she wanted you to know that.....hope you do well

Hey, Patti, your hubby is soooo right.  What I would give to be in the same city as you guys! 

Your dogs are soooooo much like mine, I swear.  The jealousy bit - Sophie can't stand Gerhardt, I can't pet him, and she doesn't approve of Paul and me sitting on our club chair together.  They both come up there and start whining and staring us down.  We have to sit on the sofa with them, or be harassed all night, haha!   She is my baby, we are joined at the hip, it's totally ridiculous.  If Paul wants to love on her, she pulls away all the while looking at me like "I can't get away from him, I'm sorry!", then when he's done holding on to her, she makes a mad dash for me and kisses me feverishly like she's apoligizing!  there's more, like I'm sure you have tons more stories, too.  My theory (proven, in fact) is if you spend all day every day with them and treat them like people, they are just like people.  Only better, IMAO!  (Friends and family excluded, of course!)

So Kevin likes us redheads, huh!  People either love us or hate us, usually, even our hair color is controversial, lol!  The only thing worse than a BP is a redheaded BP, mad    I am so flattered, you know how us 40+ girls need the ego strokes!  You're totally gorgeous, no wonder a doc married you!  yeah They don't marry the ugly girls! nono    I'll send you both some pics of me and Paul - we're having a friend who's an amateur photobug do them on Saturday.

OK, Nick, time to put  up or shut up.  I want that pic by 09:00 hours tomorrow.  You're dismissed. tongue    Seriously, if you have a digital camera, you just take a snapshot, download it on the computer and put the file in an email.  It's hard if you don't know what you're doing, Jason probably will.  I don't mean to insult your intelligence, I don;t know if you mean you're going to try to send a regular photo, not digital!!!!  I had to learn all that from Paul, and it's still a challenge - I'm about as illegitimet as you can get.  (Catch the joke there?)

I am sooooo happy to hear of your "luckyness" (good word Nick!) - IMO it makes EVERYTHING better. :-) :-) :-)   :-)   devil   devil   devil   devil devil devil devil devil   devil  

Home Depot?  My hubby lives there, too, he can do absolutely anything there is to do with a house!  He has actually turned me into a convert - I love doing projects, it's fun!  Not to mention the great benefit at cost!  We tiled the guest bathroom a few months back, and I was actually the tile cutter!!  It was a blast, and looks totally professional if I do say so.

Well, gotta run and actually do some semblance of responsibility now.  Paul has tomorrow thru Mon. off (Yay!!!!!!) so I won't be on as much, but I'll check in for sure, OK?

Talk to ya later babes

Shan

Hey Roseanne! First off u didnt horn in, u r welcome here...u r nice, that is the ony pre-requisite...LOL! Like I own the place..NOT! Yes, I have made some TERRIFIC friends here. We give and take advice and love. How are you doing? Are u tapering off the Entocort? I am down to 2 pills/day, still have BAD headches, but I am keeping the faith that they will subside. My email is on my profile, shoot me one and let me know EVERYTHING about what YU are doing. And send Samantha my love! I know the thread wasnt stopped because of me. Mark (musicmork) is a mental case. He asks for advice and never takes it. Then he has the nerve to start a new thread "about the future of us all" and once again..ITS ALL about HIM!!! He doesnt care one bit for any of us, and Roseanne if u think he does u r sadly mistaken. And I cant believe u believe that he will have the Colonoscopy. He has done the prep 4 times and left the surgical center because he was scared!!!! WA,WA,WA! I just loved having my colonoscopies. I may have all the time in the world, but I dont have time for people that are that uncaring. He was emailing me privately crying, and I fell into his trap, and where did it get me, to a place where I no longer feel comfortable. Yes, the Moderators have been emailing me daily (hmmmm...wonder why???) as they know I have something to offer. I am glad u found me, I missed you too, I miss sammy, Bob....many people, but honey I am too sensitive or people that cut u off (Quincy) I mean talk about pathetic. Anyway, this too shall pass. I promise. Thanks so much for being the caring soul tht u r. It isnt Goodbye...just see ya' later!

Love,
Patti

Back from meeting, wow, that was um....scary. Anyways, I don't have a digital camera or the plugs that you use or whatever to download. So I am trying to get my friend to email a digitial picture she has of us. then I will get the pic to you. You guys are seriously making me feel bad. Really, I am asking for a dig. camera from my parents this year, even though they make my car payments, maybe they will still buy me one. So if she sends me the pic via email. How do I send the pic to you, just forward it or what. Honestly I don't have  a clue, and Shannon you are not insulting my intelligence. I am computer DUMB!!!! I haven't checked my mail yet but will. Can I send a pic if it's not digital? I am really going to try and have you one by MOnday afternoon. All depends on my friend, she's busy, owns a happening bar. Warning now, this picture will be when I am a little lit. Talk soon.  Nickie

Pattiand Shannon, you guys both look great. Neither of you are how I imagined . Patti, I absolutely love your top. You and Shannon are both so thin, anyways, hope when I send the pict, you guys think I am as pretty as you too. Kevin, is not at all , how I pictured him, he has a more roughness look, much better than the docs I know. They are so sophisticated even outside of work. The other docs wives probably don't like you, not because your crazy, because you are so pretty. Anyhow, I am overwhelmed right now and need to go and think. School jitters setting in, always happens. I am okay though. Can you say nervous about mock surgery? Bye for now. Love the dogs too. Jason and I cannot agree upon which dog to get , so we will wait for now. Plus jaylynn is enough.

Oh, Nick, thank you!  don't get all worked up about how you look - I'm sure your not the hunchback!  It's just so great to put a face on cyberspace friends!  I think you can send a non dig pic, but you need a scanner and it's complicated - much easier dig.  All you have to do is forward the email with your image on it, easy as pie. 

Try not to wig out too much about school - and if you bit off more than you could chew, you can always do a couple of those classes later.  I am kinda concerned about that - it can unbalance you considering you're also a parent, so be careful, OK?

Hi foxy ladies! Can I please stop saying "foxy"! Especially being that Nickie is a youngin, she probably doesnt even know what the hell it means...LOL! (it means, hot, pretty,etc.). Thank u for the compliment. I hope u dont think Kev is a fright, we both just dont play the "doc and doc's wife appearance game. He used to have LONG hair!!! But ya' know you would be surprised how different ER Docs are than Docs are that have their own practices/speciality. I think they think its more important to "look" the role. Nickie..DO NOT GET UPSET...but honey I have been worried about all your classes also. It isnt tht we (I am sure Shannon agrees with me) dont think "Nickie" can't handle it, but ANYONE! Not to mention your lil girl. Please dont tell me u work also or i will really FREAK!!!!!!!! Anyway, we are here to help to get thru it, and one thing u can count on from us (Shannon and I) is you will NEVER have to hear an "I told u so". I would kill over that phrase! Like Shan says, you can always drop some if need be. But, I will miss you. Not tht u ever have time for us anyway WA,WA,WA, (I am crying in case u didnt know what the "F" I was doing...LOL). I am saying later for now as I am famished then have to watch CSI and Without a Trace. Wish I was a detective or a CSI...poor, patti...LOL.

Love and hugs my buds (hey I am a poet and dont know it...cant stop, I am all that......IN MY WET DREAMS!!!!!>>>>LOL),

Okay first of all, I am going to be fine, this is not my first rodeo! 2 classses end pretty early in the semester, like Oct. and early Nov. (Classes end in Dec.) about dropping a few, don't count on that, I have a pell grant, so I would be in some big trouble , possibly have to pay those dropped classes back. Not to mention I still had to take out a student loan to cover expenses. I do not work, i wouldn't have time. My parents help out by paying my car payments, my grandma is pretty loaded and spoils me rotten. Jason is the only person that works for now in this household. We do just fine. Jaylynn has everything under the sun, and we never go without.  So I will be ok. At first it's always overwhelming. I have 2 math classes, 1 computer class, 2 physics classes and my surgical class plus lab. The only petrifying thing is the fact that at the end of the semester you perform a mock surgery and have 3 instructors watching you, waiting for you to screw up. If you don't do well and have an A in the class, you fail both, the lab and the class. We are getting prepared for real life and I understand , but wholy s***! That is my only concern but I am a great visual learner, so I should be alright. Practice makes perfect. Lots of students take a full load of classes the only difference is I have a little more trouble dealing with the time and stress. I met some of the people in my class, and know that at least 2 other women have children. So I just have to make a time table and stick to it. Getting up at 5:00 am everyday, should help. I do loose a little bit of sleep while in school, but my doc knows better than to give me anything for it, I can't miss class. Strict they are!

My friend has a scanner, tried to reach her last night, was unable. So I 'll try her again today. I really am not that concerned how I look. I think I look great, just need to loose a few more lbs.At least that's what people tell me. So enough about that.

Anyways, I really am not in a good mood today, so I probably won't be on much. Plus I have alot to do. Shannon thanks for the email. I do understand all of that, but thanks for reiterating it. Sorry if I sound a little down and out, well I am. So bye for now.
