Recently, I heard on the news that sometime in the near future they may stop manufacturing incandescent light bulbs because the newer fluorescent bulbs last much longer and are more energy efficient. I'm sure this is true. However, fluorescent light bothers me because of lupus and so I'm starting to buy the old fashioned bulbs from time to time when I'm grocery shopping and stocking up on them ! Just thought I'd mention this for others who may be adversely affected by fluorescent lights.

thanks. I know we all likely need to stock up. I sit in the dark most of the time now because light is giving me headaches.
