    Hi Everyone,

    Weather: Rainy and windy.

    Sleep: 4 hours!

    Mood: Irritable.

    Plans: Today is a rainy day and I have already planned what I am going to do today ...... nothing! I love rainy days because it gives you that excuse to roll up and read a good book. So today | will be reading a book called God, Dreams, and Revelation - by Morton T. Kelsy.

    Nice relaxing day....

    Hello my new friends

    Weather: May thinks it's March.

    Sleep: Pretty good but lots of chaotic dreams. Definitely one nightmare.

    Mood: Trying to hold it together. Big family drama is making it really difficult. My wife and her mom aren't talking and we're supposed to stay with them for two weeks in June. Yay!

    Plans: Help my son make a volcano (fun!). Clean.

    Anything's possible now that scientists have discovered magic.

    We are just buddy buddy lately huh? Weather, mood, weight talk...LOL! Love you girl. Yeah, it's apparently genetic, at least in our family...unfortunate for sure. He gets treated by an alternative med MD with high concentrations of vitamins and minerals, and we have ALL (as of 5-6 years ago) began really watching what we eat, cos Dad's diet had to change dramatically when he was dxd finally. His got so bad that he had open sores cos his immune system had shut down, he was sleeping almost 24/7 cos he literally had no energy. It was awful.

    MattB: YAY your first Daily Post Weeeeelcome! ROFL "May thinks it's March" it really does...gross. I hear you on the dreams too, I seem to be having nightmares lately and don't tend to remember them, I just know I wake up freaked. Hope tonight is better, & enjoy the volcano project

    Good morning my dahling Beepers

    Weather: very hot

    Sleep: very good

    Mood: right now its ok, but last night I started having asthma probs again. I was doing so darn well for the past 2-3 days and all of a sudden my asthma acts up again. The only thing that I did was different was, drink two heineken beers (I dont normally drink that beer. Wondering if that may have caused it.

    Plans: clean the oven, do the dishes, clip coupons. Tonight is the final for Survivor. (Come on Boston Rob, you can do it.). Me and my hubby loves that guy, he is a crack up.

    You all have a wonderful day. smoochie

    Dyanne48jj replied to BipolarDisorder2's response:
    LMAO BP2, I was thinking that earlier, we have always 'chatted' but not like lately. I'm loving it!

    Well my CFS was the result of a long illness. Try to short story here: stomach ulcerations so bad they had their own ulcerations and had attached to my esophagus, and literally rearranged my other inners ie intestines.

    In USA ins wouldnt allow surgery, pushed drugs that didnt work notwithstanding my specialist told them in his 30 yrs of expertise I had one of the worse top 10 cases he had EVER seen.
    Finally, here where i live in Canada, the surgeon freaked that it hadnt been done. The surgery took several hours and til this day he wont even tell me all the details and his face goes ash just speaking of it so you know it had to be bad eh. He had to manipulate the intestines etc back into their original places.
    Well while waiting on this surgery my over all health completely decline to the point where any of my organs could shut down at any time. When I went under the knife, my chances of surviving the surgery were Less than 40%. So, I'm blessed to be alive, but the trama and shock my body sustained internally could not survive it. Dont get me wrong, my hemoglobin etc are all back up to 'liveable' JUST this year, but the damage was done leaving me with lifetime CFS.
    I have every symptom too (some peeps just have a majority of them) including the sporatic sore throats and sporatic fevers. I can not plan anything . Actually do not know ONE minute to the next how I am going to feel, much less day to day.

    Well, that wasnt a short story was it? lol I guess a long health prob has to have a long story.

    Hi Everyone,

    Weather: Had a heavy rain last night. It was so loud on the barn roof! Yes,I was in the barn last night really working on a mare who was readying to foal. Got in the house about 7 a.m.. I'm having some tea and planning out the rest of my day.

    Mood :Great.

    Sleep: I told my husband I was fine at 7 and he said oh just go lay down for a bit. I just woke up! So not like me.

    Plans: Monitor the new foal very closely. Mama has been kinda not into this little girl. I hope she doesn;t orphan it.

    Have a fun Sunday Everyone what ever you do!


    BipolarDisorder2 replied to Dyanne48jj's response:
    A long health has to have a long story- absolutely! Glad that you lived through everything CFS sucks hugely, but thankfully it's treatable, yeah? Major life changes for sure, but treatable and tolerable (although that is arguable ;p).
    I've had a lot of surgery too but it was for my legs, not my innards...IDK which is worse ;p

    Love ya girl!
