Yes I am!! This is yet another sad day on TV. I've been logging onto CNN & MSNBC all day here at work. My DH is self employed so we have the same worry.
With the holidays right around the corner, fuel prices this winter, food prices...it is going to be scary. I just pray we continue to get by the way we are.
Tell your DH to hang in there and not to stress as that does bad things for our body!

Marlee, I hope your husband will be okay and all tests come back good. I do understand what everyone is trying to say, certainly money isn't as important as our health, but I think with most men, it is hard for them to not be concerned. After all, for most of them, they have had to support the family. It's just a part of them and it is a difficult thing for them to not view it as important. Of course, staying away from the news channels certainly helps and that he CAN help .
John, you do not know me, as most here, I am relatively new to this board, but not new to FM. Dx 20 years ago. I was, however, glued to CNN during Ike's destructive path over your area and I was thinking of you and said some prayers for you. I hope you are managing okay and will continue to keep you in my prayers.
Chuzzle, what you are going through...well, it certainly does put other issues in perspective. My very best wishes to you and your family and I will also keep all of you in my prayers. My heart goes out to you.

Marlee- I just read about your DH this morning. Hope everything turns out just fine. I know it has to be hard on your hubby to see what is going on. He, I'm sure has worked hard all of his life and with retirement around the corner, it has to be disheartening. It is nice to hear that your cousin's chemo is helping to shrink the tumors.
Chuzzle- My thoughts and prayers are with you and your daughter as she starts her treatments.
Jev- Hope this flare goes away soon- you have been through alot.
