Babs I have been getting frequent uti's and since in older women the symptoms are more silent, in the beginning I wouldn't go in for testing untill I began to get dizzy, and I felt as though my mind had stopped working a d I felt like I had the flu. Is not uncommon for elderly women with dementia I nursing homes to die from a UTI because their symptoms are not recognized. I don't have the typical burning but I now recognize the symptoms so I begin treatment ASAP.
Joy, I'm turning my memory loss into funny stories. We've bought a new house in order to downsize and make my life more manageable, but the process that goes along with having one house to fix up and one to sell has really been too much. I went to the new house on a cold day and asked the workmen why they hadn't turned on the heat & thet said they had tried but couldn't get it on. I called an HVAC guy who came out & told me the gas valve was shot & he could replace it for $400. I said no thanks and called the Inspector who had done our inspection prior to closing. He said he had turned it on & it worked fine. So I called our home warranty co who said that since I couldn't prove that it had ever worked after we purchased the home, they wouldn't cover it. During all of this I was also talking to our realtor and her assistant. Finally called another HVAC guy who came out and said there was nothing wrong, but the gas was not on. I had kept my cool to that point but wanted to jump down someone's throat at the gas co. Thankfully I didn't because when I calld to ask why they hadn't turned on the gas after I had established service, I was told that we had an appointment but that I had stood them up. I could have cried, but laughed instead.
