Haven't seen you around in awhile and was wondering how you're doing. Are you still working? Would you believe there's a job ad I SOO want to apply for but it's full time and demanding. One minute I think hey, yea, maybe...and then I'm collapsing on the bed. shakehead

Anyway, you missed the Beach Party and the Wilsons! If you want a laugh go read the two Beach Party threads. We do need another party thread soon. idea

PAlady--thanks for the post. Yeah, haven't been around for awhile b/c I give myself "breaks" from getting too caught up in CP/illness/diseases, etc., if that's possible at all; sometimes I just don't want to talk about it/read about it/discuss it. Now, if I can just figure out getting away from the physical part of it some days, now that would be the ticket--maybe I'll write a book! I have today off from work and feeling very fatigued, tired and overwhelmed so I decided to cruz HW to read the empathy. Still working FT, can't say it's not without its challenges, have to be very regimented, plenty of sleep, rest, etc. All the advice I can give you about going back to work FT is that you have to be very disciplined about giving yourself what you need without guilt. For instance, one day a week I do absolutely nothing--I rest--I don't do chores, don't talk to anyone, just rest--sometimes it's a little challenging b/c I think we are socially programed, I blame talk shows--to "take on the day!" you know, that live life to the fullest dogma crap we're are all fed. As much as I understand I have limits, that propaganda plays in my head and I need to keep on reminding myself that I'm doing the best I can for ME. Oh yeah, my house could be cleaner, I sleep approx. 10 hours a night and I'm starting to do more things that only give me pleasure, it all centers me to be able to work FT. Could life be better, absolutely, but, it could be worse.

I'll check out the beach party, but I won't stay long, I'm kinda a vampire, the sun bothers me, hate sand and laying out bores me. Now if you ever have a nighttime BBQ w/host bar, karaoke, and dancing till dawn, count me in. Hugs.

As you'll see, this party kinda went round the clock! We were also all in virtual bodies with no pain, no limits, so it was deliberately a fantasy world for healing and fun purposes. Plenty of food (I've found this group is very good at coming up with favorite desserts!), drinks and musical guests. Dancing til dawn...hmm....wonder if we missed that one! We came close though!

How does chilling in chocolate hot tubs sound?

Hugs back at ya! And believe me, if I was working I wouldn't be here very often. I so miss having my mind stretched but sometimes wonder if I really could think sharply again. My life is the pits and I'd so like to have a part of it back. Trade offs, trade offs.
