I was just thinking about those on the board and haven't seen a post by Stray in awhile and wondered if she is doing ok? Did I miss a post by her saying she would be away for awhile?
 
Just letting you know we are thinking of you and missing you as you give such wonderful advice and shoulder to lean on..
 
Will say a prayer that you are doing well and just taking some needed time for you!!
 
Hugs!!

Snowbunny, thanks for asking I am alive and kicking. Been busy, then some days of not feeling good just a combo of things hitting at once, the usual grind.

How are you doing? I may be getting you confused with someone else, but will ask the question anyway, were you the one that had trigger point injections and was having a rough time? Sorry, brain fog sets in and the brain stops being clear, lol.

Dealing with crazy Tx weather,. We had 70's one day and then snow the next. Causing major allergy problems, everything is in full bloom, including my nose. Take care.

Sorry to hear of the bad days...I'm having one of those today, myself...

No worries on the brain fog, happens to all of us!! LOL...I am the one that just was told by my Dr. to go on disability...and you had written some great advice (along with others:) to help me get started...I haven't been on the boards long so I am trying to learn everyone's stories too...

Happy to hear that you are doing ok and certainly respect needed time away from here when it's just too hectic or not feeling good enough..Just wanted to let you know you were missed!!!

We have been having some crazy weather in VA too!..I actually lived in Dallas back in '95 for about a year...and have great friends in Galveston that just moved there...


Take care of that nose!! HAHA....and the rest of you:)....
Sending big hugs (( ))

Ok got it now, lol, I do remember you being told to get on disability. I do hope that you have the ball rolling in that direction. I always tell folks to do it immediately, mainly because it is so hard to get and it can be quite some time before knowing if you are going to get it or not. If you are like the rest of us you need money now not later. Not only that, you really need to do it with things fresh in your mind too. It turns our world upside down when told to do this , I know, it did mine. But, I back burnered those feelings and dealt with them later simply because we were a two income family not one. I was not about to lose everything we had worked so hard for because I could not pull myself together long enough to fill out forms, that was simply reality for me. I truly did not want to be 49 yrs old and home less.

I am dealing with some problems with my legs and swelling is a big issue for me. So I am limiting my time sitting at this desk with these throbbing fat legs. Hope you are ok and having some low pain days.
