Stormin' Norman died and Bush, Sr. is in the hospital. It's like the 90s are dying!

I am in awe of my awesome self! : ) I have gotten so much accomplished these last 2 days while off work. I am anally organized to begin with but I have been an even crazier OCD girl!
Christmas decorations put away. Holiday decoration and gift closet organized. All the cupboards and closets and drawers in the house cleaned out and put in storage closet with other stuff for sale or charity. Ads put on craigslist. Receipts and records and other end of the year paperwork all done. Photos all taken out of old containers and organized in one container. Giant 'memory box' cleaned out and organized (stuff from school, ticket stubs, political stuff, old drawings, and I must have had a few thousand old favorite bday and xmas cards). Old family 8mm movies (from 1957 -1972) all organized and boxed up to take to the photo shop to be put on DVDs for my dad for his 80th birthday this year. It's gonna cost me a freakin fortune but it needs to be done before they disintegrate. And my dad will love it. Cooked a bunch of meals for the freezer, went to the gym, did some after Xmas shopping.
I think I might have gotten some sleep, too. : )

Jeep, you're headed to my house next, right?

My pantry is a mess.

as a christmas/holiday gift, my best friend got me a jar of nutella and a spoon "because you'll just eat it out of the jar".

it's so great when someone just gets you that much.

According to the doc today, she's in the waning stages and has probably turned a corner now (towards recovery). She first became ill Saturday night/Sunday.

I'm in the process of applying for financial/indigent patient assistance with the hospital system I work for; and will probably qualify for it, so I will be hopefully be able to get my inhalers...but WHY can't calamity just hold off for a second, until the boat is on an even keel??? WHY???

Household rule #1 for both of us from here on out: Flu shots every flu season. We usually get them every year. There was just so much going on these past few months. *Deep, weighty, heavy-laden, 75-second SIGH*

/rant, just had to get it off my chest (and may MY chest remain clear and infection-free!!!) It's just that I'm just so terrified I'll get it; catching a cold lays me SO low with the ensuing asthma, and I've never even had the flu...
I have viral induced bronchial asthma. I came down with the flu the first week in December. It was pretty brutal. I still can't shake the cough.

OMG, I am so sorry

What medications are you on?

The Symbicort usually helps but I've used my last sample. I have no medical insurance and I seriously hoard my inhalers. If I get the flu I am up Sh*t Creek *lays head down*

The specialist I used to go to used to put me on Prednisone when things got REALLY bad. But I only get an attack maybe once a year, if even that....I've only been on Prednisone for an attack twice since I was diagnosed at age 25 (I'm 42 now)

I have some trouble getting Prednisone when I go to other doctors. I mean I KNOW the risks and side effects of Prednisone.......but Robitussin, or codeine cough syrup, and my Proventil inhaler just doesn't cut it when that coughing is really, really bad. I don't even bother to get the codeine cough syrup Rx filled--when that cough sets in, it's like drinking water. No effect on the coughing at all, and then I just feel dizzy. Total waste of time and money getting it filled.

I have pulled abdominal muscles (omg--excruciating pain) from unchecked coughing and the recovery time was worse than the quick on/off course of Prednisone.

As soon as I can get this form done I can possibly get followup care as an indigent patient.....Lord, please give me one break and let that happen....

Ive been on albuterol, flovent, and robitussin dm. I have a Vicks personal steamer that i use sometimes with sea salt. A few times I had to use albuterol solution.

Many many years ago I had a new doctor refuse to refill my meds bc she said having asthma wasnt in my chart. I was diagnosed 30 years ago. I've survived on using my pediatrician and random samples for years. Yes, its scary getting sick. I wonder at what age i will be on oxygen. I keep reminding myself I NEED
to get a pcp.

My bronchials were so constricted I had no control over the coughing spasms. My stomach muscles were in so much pain i had to crouch down and fold my body over whenever i coughed or sneezed.

I'm getting better. Not on inhalers as often and no more cough medicine. Thank God. I was getting mouth sores and so irritable from the steriod.

Hope you dont have issues. I know how bad it sucks.

There are public beat downs going on for not staying on topic from an original post in a thread now?

I love y'all, but my annoyance level with moderation is reaching its limit, so don't worry when I disappear again. I'll be back sometime.... Hopefully XCPTNL will, too - I don't know what the FEMBOT thread was, and think it's sad she's gone.

Does someone owe NC.com for using that post from the boards without permission? Absolutely hilarious....



My horse is off to boot camp! The trainer came to pick him up and worked with him here today, and it was good to see how quickly he went from "you're a stranger so I'm terrified you'll beat me!" to "oh, you make sense and aren't beating me, so I'll think about maybe doing what you want..." And then he progressed to "oh, I like doing what you want!"

Did you misplace your syllabus again? You have to stick with the course writing outline or you'll get put into time out...and no pie!

It's time for the Baby Calvin to make a wardrobe change. Away with the manger and in with the diaper, banner, and father time.

Am I the only one who isn't bothered when people unfriend her on FB? I have plenty of FB friends who are basically acquaintances I no longer keep up with or have much in common now that we don't work together. I go through maintenance and unfriend these types every once in a whole. If they beat me to it, so be it. *kanyeshrug*
However, if any of you NC.com friends unfriend me, I will cut you. You're stuck with me forever, so deal with it, 'k?

#that wasn't really a question
