I've been unusually busy and haven't been posting or even reading the posts and I really miss all of you. I've had a long spell of feeling real good even though I've been overdoing it a bit. The past two days have been a little rough so I'm trying to reign myself in a bit. Please let me know how you are all doing. There appear to be lots of new folks and I look forward to getting to know you too.

(((hugs))) to all.

Pat, we've missed you too!! It's so great to hear that you have had such a long stretch of feeling good and I hope that slowing down these next few days will have you up and feeling good again. I've recovered from the wasp sting and the rash and am feeling pretty decent which feels nice.

Thanks for checking in and letting us know how you are. You are right that we have a lot of great new members.

Make sure you are taking good care of yourself so you can continue to feel good.

Love and hugs

Missed you to Pat and I have been busy/wiped out. Seems these days if I take my pain meds I can do more but can't sleep, but if I don't take them I'm useless and can do nothing. I just need to be able to take them and sleep too. I hope your days away have been more interesting! Glad you are feeling good!
Love, Marji

Hi Patty!
Nice to have you back again.  Although, not because you're feeling badly, but because you're a sweetheart!  I hope this current setback clears up quickly for you.  I went through a long remission, 4 years.  Just hit the wall this past summer with a near death experience from a seizure medication allergy.  I was MESSED up bad.  So my remission was over.  I'm doing much better now though.  Mostly dealing with fibro these days.  If it isn't one, it's the other, right!
Talk to you soon!

Hi Patty! I can relate to your missing everyone on HW. When I get super busy with school, I miss everyone, too! Just know that when you are not posting, we are all still thinking of you and sending our prayers!

Hi Patty, I hope you are rebounding from this most recent crash. Isn't great to have those times of almost human feeling? There is always the little nagging in the back of the head saying How long will this last?. I hope you are out and about again real soon before the weather turns to snow and we all get snowed in! burrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
love and hugs
God Bless
