Thank you Gillian,
You are so special to me. I love reading your posts. So you have to give yourself a little more credit. I know how much you have been going through and you always manage to say something nice and helpful to people.
I wish for you the most lovely day. Or could be night where you are. I am doing okay, just catching a little cabin fever. But I will be okay, thanks to you and all of the other fine people here.
Luv and hugs,
The winter blues are a sure bet to put many people with depression in the dark hole. I am glad so many come here and meet new people and have received help.
Bless each and everyone of you.Kitt
I am glad that I feel like a big sister to you. That makes me feel so good. You are very sweet too.
I do like puzzle books. I like crosswords and word search. I can sit there all day and do them. I try not to cheat.LOL.
I hope that you are having a good day today. Did your football team win or lose. That was a playoff game wasn't it? My husband watched it but I wasn't sure if your team won or not.
take care and keep in touch.
I love reading your posts.

Thanks for the tip on the puzzles. That way I wont accidently see the answers. I really try hard not to cheat. Some days the puzzles seem easier than others.
We are getting snow today. Kind of wet looking. I am so sick of the winter, I think that it is because I can't get outside much with these cold temperatures.
Did you get your appointment for your mamogram? I keep forgetting to call. I think that I conveniently forget. I just don't like going in to get that done. I have to have them every year. I will try to call today. Maybe I can get appointment for in a couple weeks, hopefully the weather will be better by then. I shouldn't skip this appointment. But I hate them. They don't hurt, it is more of a pressure feeling.
I hope you have a great day. It was nice talking (writing) to you, and getting your post.
I made my appointment yesterday for my mammogram. It will be in a month. I am so bad about going so I make them for as far off as I can. Though I understand why you would want to be checked sooner being that you hurt there. Hopefully our weather will be better by then also.
How are you doing today?
I am so glad that you will have an interpreter at your appointment. I know how much that it helps you. Not only for you to understand but for moral support also. Just try not to be afraid, I have had many of the mammograms, I have to get them every year. Some places have newer equipment and they are a lot more comfortable now days.
I remeber my first time, I ask what if there is a fire? The lady showed me a button to push to release my breast. She thought I was funny. But I knew what to do if I couln't take it. But It is mostly pressure, not pain.
I hope that you have a good day Michelle. I will try also. It is sunny here and not quite as cold, but still cold enough. Tomorrow is suppose to be much warmer.
Hi there Michelle,
I am sure that you will be so relieved when you get your test done. It is nerving when you are waiting for them though. I try not to think about it, but to remember not to wear deodorant that day. I will still forget and wear it anyway.LOL. They usually ask you not to.
What kind of work are you looking for? What is it that you like to do? Are you looking for full time, or part time. I can't work with the fibromyalgia and depression. I hope you get something that you love to do.
My arms ache today. I think that the cold weather is catching up with me. I guess tomorrow is going to be warmer. Or less cold. There is nothing warm about this. Sometimes in February and March it can be below 0 here. Plus March is windy.
It is nice how we can communicate on the forum. I feel like it is kind of a miracle. You get to meet nice people like you.
Have a wonderful evening,
I have to take my truck in to the repair place so I wont be on much today.
I hope that you are having a good day today.
I will write again when I come home.
Love and hugs,
Hi Another day,
It was in 2000 that I had to get a fine needle biopsy done, I had microcalcification in my left breast. They said whatever it was, it was benign. But I have to get yearly diagnostic mammograms, what a pain. But they will catch things early. They also said that I had fibrocystic breast disease. But I think that just means I have dense tissue. So maybe it makes them a little harder to read, the xrays that is.
Like another day says, the first one is the most uncomfortable because you don't know what to expect. They are a lot easier to tolerate now than they were at first for me. And if it does get too uncomfortable to the point of bad pain, let them know. Unless you get a sadistic technition, you will be okay. LOL.
I hope that you let me know how it goes. But remember to relax and it wont be bad at all. They use to give me a rose afterwards, but they don't do that anymore. We will see. I think we deserve something nice especially the first time.
I am glad that your mammogram went easy. See it isn't that bad, but it isn't much fun either. It is always nice when it is over though.
When I had surgery on my breast they numbed it. Then put this really thin long needle (wire) in to find the spot that they wanted to take out. Then they put me to sleep and cut the spot out. I have a scar, but you can hardly see it. It was wierd to have the wire sticking out of my boob. LOL. I was scared but then I fell asleep and it was over with. The doctor said that they got it all out. Then they did a biopsy on it and said it was benign. I was glad.
I hope that you enjoy getting your hair cut. It is nice to get pampered at the beauty shop once in a while. It makes us feel good and we deserve that.
I hope that you have a great day,
