... So very well said Lil!!!! I began to feel utterly useless when I realized I wouldn't ever be working again. I think for me the feeling was really reinforced when wc attempted to make me work and having to go in, sit there and then leave an hour later in agony and tears didn't help those feelings. Seeing my hubby work 2 jobs just to pay the bills, doc and meds gets to me as... (12 replies)

... Hello Lefty, my name is Kim. I have had RDS Type II since 1995. I was attacked during a training episode (PPCT pressure point control tactics). I now have full body RSD. It even moved into my chest cavity and has put me in the cardiac ICU for a week. I HATE RSD!!!!! My youngest twins were only 1 when I got hurt. They learned to walk by holding my crutches. I wasn't... (12 replies)
... Hi everyone:wave: Gosh I can't believe the last time Ivisited was on August 6th.:eek: The owner of the shop that I work for under the table went on vacation, so I was working 35 hours a week.

... Hi Karen, Thanks for telling us about your kitties. I love to hear about them. I love them so much. My little Lily is on my lap right now...too cute.

Annie is black and white and came to my sister's house, but they have two boy kitties (Flynn and Charlie) and... (12 replies)
... Thank you all for your good advice. I forgot to mention that I do have two dogs - two mini-dachshunds. One is older (12 1/2 yrs) and needs extra care since she is going blind in one eye and is now partially deaf due to her advancing age. The other is almost 7 years old and has the attitude and temperment of a slightly psychotic adolescent. :blob_fire They do keep me... (12 replies)
... Hey Sharon! :wave: Thank you. If Seamus keeps eating like he does he'll be overweight too! LOL I think it's because he's a growing boy that he's not already overweight. :D They're not sister and brother though they definitely act like it. They were in the main viewing room with a few other kittens. The last few months have been kitten season here and they had an over... (12 replies)

... Hi Friends, :wave: Well, it's late as usual and I can't sleep b/c of the pain. Have had many nights like this lately and my pain clinic just pushed back my appt for another month b/c my doc is taking time off to have a baby.
