    That is so neat how God intervened this week. I love hearing stuff like that. I am also happy to hear how you are also taking care of yourself. If our government will pay for the holiday I will give you a call. Having a terrible time with the new meds. It isn't strong enough and I am in withdrawal from the other meds. I have trouble with my hands so I am having trouble getting the patch to stick. At the same time I am coming down off the prednisone. So my body and emotions are so screwed up. I end up crying watching a sappy commercial. Oh yeah want to hear something neat? A friend of mine ( he is a Pastor that I cover) that same night I was awake praying for him. Long story short, he has hemophilia and arthritis and hep.b. He went to the specialist the other day. We knew what they were going to say but I was praying that God would do something that would amaze him. So he gets there and they pull out his file and they said with your hemophilla you are rated severe. He said no I am rated moderate. They said no. Long story short that means that by now he should either be dead or have aids/hiv. Isn't that neat? God is so good. I didn't fill the rx. for antibiotics. It seems to be hanging on a bit. Sorry to hear about your neck. Lord I speack healing into that neck right now and that everything lines up in Jesus Name. Thank you.
    Take care. Keep in touch. You are a precious person and well loved on this board.

    I was beginning to think everyone was out of town.LOL I am sort of lonely tonight. Sometimes when something big is over then I have a huge letdown. I hate these shorter days too. I am sorry to hear you are still struggling. I have been on predisone a few times but only for a week or two. Yes, it would be hard getting off of it. I am assuming you read my post to you. It got bumped downward from today. This board does move faster than I remember when I first found you all here. I so much appreciated your prayers and even in the middle of the night. My neck is really bad and I am not sure what the deal is. My juicing has really helped and I had to miss several days in a row this week and that does make a difference. I did get to juice this afternoon. Some of what I am juicing are natural anti inflammatory veggies. I even saw my chiro yesterday and had electric stim and that always helps and it didn't. Usually a good nights sleep will do the trick and I thought when I got up this morning it was better but as I went about my day it kept getting worse. The really bad headaches have not returned and am so thankful for that. I am glad you don't have to do the round of antibiotics yet.

    That is a neat story about the pastor. God is good all the time isn't He? I still need to go to the grocery store. My dreaded Saturday night ritual. I now do a daytime trip to another town in the afternoons on Saturdays to get my organic stuff. Then I do the regular shopping at night to avoid the crowds. I hate shopping during the day. It takes twice as long and twice as frustrating when I am in a hurry. Well take care, my friend. I will be lifting you up even more to help get you through this awful transition. You are a special person and I appreciate you so much.

    Love,
    Nancy

    Ihope you get this. I just wrote you a long post and my computer crashed. I have spent the last hr. trying to get it back. Thanks for your post and kind words. I am feeling a little better today. The patch isn't strong enough so I have to use my breakthrough meds till I see him next week. The prednisone is making me really edgy and restless today. I want to be alone, don't want to be alone. I am amazed don't know why at the goodness of God in watching over and helping you last week. I hope you are taking a down day and pampering yourself. Just soaking in the tub with your favorite cd. I miss being able to soak in the tub. My balance is awful and my physio won't let me get in the whirlpool and not even the pool unless it is warm and I have at least 2 people with me. Bummer. I hope you neck pain settles down soon. We were at the Christian bookstore last week and they were having a sale. Picked up 2 books in one called the Cape Refuge Series by Teri Blackstock. They are murder mysteries. So I am hiding in it. Beats some of the junk on tv. I agree with you this board changes so fast it is hard to keep up on the posts. I forget who I responded to and who is who. I suppose that is a good thing. There seems to be a bonding happening which is neat. Wouldn't it be neat if we could have our own chat room? I wonder if we could ask them. I will think about it and maybe put out a post and see how many might be interested. What do you think? I usually do my shopping first thing Sat. morning when there aren't any crowds. I can't handle them either. We are having a terrible time in our city with expired products. It isn't just one grocery store. My son was livid the other week. When he got home to put away his groceries everything was expired in about 2 days and that is a high end store. Are your grocery stores open 24/7? Some of ours are. The problem is after 11pm you can't get deli meat or fresh baked goods. They are also more expensive. Can you believe it the flyers are already out for Christams!! I am in heaven discovered Baileys Haagen Daas ice cream yesterday. Oh man it is sooooo good. In my other life I used love Baileys. I am not supposed to have it but you have to splurge once in a while. Well take care keep in touch. I forget where do you live? Like I say great memory awfully short. Praying for you.
    Talk soon.

    I am wolfing down my salad at school and trying to type all at the same time. I have this funny picture of you with ice cream all over your face and the glow of heaven on your face at the same time. LOL Last week was amazing considering that before and after that week I felt horrible. My neck was killing me all weekend until Sunday night. I don't what is going on. I got in a bad car accident in June and was rear ended and spent all summer in therapy dealing with whiplash. What a way to spend my vacation! I don't know if any of that is still affecting my neck or not. Anyway I am very thankful that today it doesn't hurt. I live in a suburb of Chicago. The chat room sounds interesting since the other boards seem to have theirs. I am not too much into chat rooms as the very little experience I have tended to drive me crazy. I love emailing but the idea of instant messaging or chat rooms never has appealed to me. I think if I wasn't working full time I might have a different feeling about them. I am on such a tight schedule I can always type in a quick email but can't do that when chatting. Does any of that make any sense to you? LOL I do think it is a good idea to promote if the interest is there.

    How are the meds coming along. Changing meds is such a pain isn't it? I sure hope you can get straightenend out and not go through a long withdrawal. I am still praying for you in that regard and to just get healthy period.

    They have murder mysteries in a Christian Book Store??? I don't have lots of time to read and in my spare time that is too much mental effort and not relaxing for me. I end up falling asleep and defeating the purpose. I need to finish my salad before my next class. This is a very busy week for me. I seem to have many of them during the school year. Most of the after school stuff is related to controling my FM. I see my myotherapist on Tues, I get an IV on Wed., teach at home on Thursday, see the chiro on Friday and have an allergy shot on Sat. Gee to I HAVE a life? LOL Sometimes I wonder. Well take care my friend. Your words are always encouraging and uplifting to me and those things really keep me going on a Monday like today.

    Love,
    Nancy
