Oh horazontal -- what a horrible run of events!! It won't help, but I too was on dial up for a while and then realised that I had developed an internet habit that I couldn't afford without broadband (lordy, the bill!!)! -- I'm glad that broadband was an option for you! What I'm trying to say is that I don't think that's just a bp mistake to make!

I'm so so glad you feel better -- great to have you back! :)

missed you here - thought you had taken a holiday to the bahamas or tahiti.  (don't we wish - lol).

i had the same dolling out of my meds after my last stupidity in 2001,  my wife was the gate keeper.  when my back hurt so badly that i couldn't stand up or walk, she dolled out a pain pill.  it wasn't really that bad, nut it feal like it at the time. 

remember, "this, too, shall pass."  it helped me through the worst of my bad times.

glad you're out of hiospital.  nut how did you manage that horrendous internet bill?  when i lived in england (1976 - 1984)  and was lecturing 750 pounds was a month's salary!  i knew inflation would get bad bad once maggie got out of office :-) .wasn't it michael foote who succeeded her?  memory gets hazy you know.

hang in there, horizontal.  you're stronger then this diseaase.  and smarter, too (what do brain chemicals know, anyway?)

Hello. My name is Sukay. I've been away from the boards for 2 years! But I found my way back again too. So glad to hear you are doing better after all you've gone through.
Welcome Back.
