    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Beep Beep....Morning

    Weather: Humid enough to cut it with a knife. Hot as he double hockey sticks

    Sleep: I'm typing this at 5:30ish. Restless.

    Mood: Depressed, full of anxiety, exhausted mentally, emotionally, and physically.

    Plans: Get the boys ready to go to their dad's for the next few days. Ds1 comes back early Saturday morning and Ds2 comes back from his Scout camping trip. More phone calls but keeping it to just a few. Too tired of dealing with it. Probably grocery shopping to replenish the pantry and freezer cause the boys have literally eaten us out of house and home. Our little Gigi (dog) is also going back with the boys to visit with her big brother so I will get a break from my shadow who has been guarding me. Needs to be somehow be sitting on me. She's a Yorkie but still, after a while it gets to be too much. If I am feeling up to it, shop for a really good headset and mike combo for the computer and book library machine. In other words - not a whole lot considering my schedule lately.

    Hello my dahlings, uuuggghhh, its only Wed.? beep beep

    Weather: too hot

    Sleep: sucked

    Mood: anxious and up and down

    Plans:dishes and play with my dog Chewy. Watch a movie.

    I was told yesterday, by one of the nurses at my Drs office, that since Im having surgery next Tuesday, that I need to stop taking all pain meds, even over the counter pain meds, until after the surgery. She said it would thin the blood. Oh for goodness sakes. I take pain meds for a reason, because Im in PAIN!!!!

    Anyways, I will be using the Ipad mostly because sitting at my computer hurts. So if everything is misspelled and in lower caps, thats why. muahs

    Hi friends! Melly and Cookie, I am thinking about both of you and wish there was something I could do!

    Weather: high 80's, not too hot!

    Sleep: Not too bad

    Mood: Manic but getting under control since I've started sleeping better...also highly anxious on and off.

    Plans: I am getting bored, a bored housewife, lol. The boredom is wreaking havoc on my restless mind because I have all this energy and a mind that won't shut up and nothing to do with it. Needless to say, I've been reading and writing a lot (and not all of it makes a whole lot of sense, lol). Anyway, I just wanted to drop in and say hello. I hope everyone is well!
