Oh, my goodness everyone! You can't know how encouraged I was by your hugs and notes this week! Thanks so much.
Tony - I'll take off my fake mustache, okay? tee hee...
PaLady, thanks so much for your sweet words. Scarred & Skeye & everyone else, it's good to see you all again too. Susie, you are right that work is just taking it out of me. I've also had some additional health issues on top of my back problem lately, and my back has been just awful these last couple of weeks - I think mostly that's because of work. I got the "we can't help you" write off from yet another doctor but the pain meds are less and less effective... I'm starting a new med tomorrow that is supposed to help with the issues I've been having with numbness in my fingers and toes. It would be great if they could make that go away, but sometimes I just feel so frustrated about
adding yet another pill to the mix, ya know?
Gracious, I need to stop whining now.
I just wanted to thank you all so much for your kindness. I was uplifted this week. Please know that I am reading your posts too and thinking of you as well. I will try to pop in and post some replies here and there soon.
