Quick note - don't know if you all got the news but I live in Lansing, IL which got hit with a "Micro Burst" - screw it - to me it was several tornados. WE are doing fine - but our entire little Village was pretty much devasted with wind damage and hail damage - trees uprooted and driveways, etc. - houses damaged. We had no power from 5:30 p.m. on Thursday until Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m. Our basement flooded and we were up round the clock trying to bail into the sink. I went grocery shopping and lost all our meat, etc. BUT....NOBODY WAS HURT! Neighbor was helping neighbor and our Village is one of kind in Illinois.
I know we made National News and today the Governor Declared Lansing, Illinois a Disaster Area.
Thank god nobody was hurt and we got power back. My husband and my son left to visit my husband's parents today in MO and Monday - Tuesday my husband is out of town in MO for business and they will both be back on Wed night.
So, again, I'm alone with the beautiful crazy dog and two fat as* cats. We cleaned the trees in front of our house and the Village came and took everything away from our basement and trees etc. So today I cleaned the house and my best friend (manic one) called at 9:00 a.m. and said she would be here soon. It's 3:00 p.m. and of course, she's not here. I will try not to shut myself in the house and I will try to get out and do something so I'm not alone for the next five days. I don't work until Wed.
Enough of me crabbing like usual.....
Nyia - I'm so happy to hear from you. I have been thinking about you, and I'm happy that things are getting easier for you and your husband is continuing his support. Yahoo on your daughter's grades, that's awesome!
I'm doing okay - had 3 old fillings redone and my teeth deeped cleaned and was terrified because around 20 years ago I had trigeminal neuralgia which was something painful caused by a dentist. This wasn't too bad, I had an excellent doctor who gave me gas and it seems that dentistry progressed a lot.
As far as my hands I met with a surgeon at the clinic I go to on Thursday, and I have to go to a hand specialist. I have moderate to severe carpal tunnel in my right hand and very light carpal tunnel in my left. He thinks I have a circulation problem in both hands (Reyenolds Syndrome or something like that) and he thinks I have other things wrong besides the carpal tunnel. My wrists hurt so bad I can't write sometimes, so besides the carpal tunnel there is something else wrong and I need a specialist for hands. I have an appointment with Orthoepaedic Specialist on Saturday the 26th.
Susy, I'm glad you are going to call the Therapist that Zinya recommended. I hope that the therapist can help you with Mobbing. Mobbing - i'm not sure what it means - but, I think its just a person who is a complete as* and tries to be a big guy and intimidate others. Don't take crap from nobody, that's my motto and I will keep that motto until I die. I've been beaten, raped, abused, but I said no more. I'm still depressed and a bit crazy, but I torture myself enough I'm not taking crap from anyone else - i make myself miserable enough!
Well, I see there are new people posting. Please keep posting, someone on here is bound to find the right words, encouragement, understanding or help for you.
Hug and Lots of Love,
