Update on me

Thank you for your comments on my last post. I am doing slightly better tonight. One of the meds that the doctor gave me is making me extremely sleepy - it's an anti-histamine for allergies - I think I'm going to ditch it. I can't function being so extremely exhausted. I called the office and they got back with me tonight saying that I need to be seen in the office tomorrow by the nurse practitioner - if I can't get in to see him then I will have to go to the ER. Yeah... right. Wait until tomorrow to go to the ER. I don't think so. LOL I'm going to see if I can get in to the office to see the NP and if not then I'll try to schedule for next week. My doctor is out of the office until Aug 8th. I am going to ask for a referral to see a rheumatologist and see if we can get on top of this fibro thing.

I called the computer place and they were able to help me retrieve my email addresses. wOOt! I am able to find the saved emails but it won't let me import them to outlook express and of course I can't open them... so I'm not sure what to do about that. Anybody?

My good buddy, Dan, helped me figure a couple of other annoying things out on my computer so yay for him! He may be AWOL on his blog but was there for me in my darkest moment (hey, email trouble is life-threatening! ---- I was threatening my children's lives... lol)

Thanks again for your loving support. I just might make it through this summer... but considering where I live and that we have at least 2 - 3 more months of it, that is still yet to be determined. And for those of you who live in the humid areas... I concede.... a dry heat is much better than a humid heat! Even if it does feel like an oven at times! My body just doesn't like the humidity AT ALL.

I'm glad you are feeling better today - I hate humid heat too. I am also glad that at least you have been able to retreive your email addresses - I'll ask Paul about the emails - he might have an idea. :) Hope the humidity eases up and that you continue to feel better.

Humidity sucks. It gets really bad around here!

Ugh! I'm having computer issues too. I feel ya there. I'm glad your feeling a bit better and hope you get the allergies figured out. Sometimes after a few days the drugged sleepy feeling goes away with the antihistamines, or at least for me. I still hate taking them, though, because they do make me irritable, and that doesn't seem to go away.

I can't imagine living in the heat all the time . . . it's supposed to be 65 here today. And I'm taking the kids swimming!

I hope you recover some of your lost computer stuff. I've lost everything before in a crash and it's such a bummer!

About a month ago our 3 year old computer died. We lost everything including 3 years worth of photographs that I did not back up and a spreadsheet that listed every "yes" company that gives donations. Ouch!

Nancy, I hope you are doing OK. I've been thinking of you often and praying for you every time the Lord brings you to mind. And it's OFTEN! Sending hugs and prayers.
