Omg...i Might Be On To Something

Recommended Posts

actually had time to read up on lyme today. is it ok to be terrified? :(

Yes, but only for a minute .... once you know the face of the monster making you ill, you will only then be able to fight it.

I'm feeling pretty tired today myself ... I had a little energy this morning, but all the activity is catching up with me.

Yes, I'm going to a doc in NY in January .... I'll have to find that name again.

It will have been two weeks that Igenex rec'd the blood on Tues. I expect that with the holiday it may take a little longer.

Then I went to buy some new shampoo ... they added wheat and oats to Alterna ... jerks ...

Jerks!!! Why do they have to change a perfectly good product...I just don't understand it.

As far as I know there was no extra cost....you can also bring in any supplements or meds you want to have tested.

Making bracelets and lying on the couch sounds sooo peaceful and relaxing to me. I've been up since 4...had to go in to work....filling up milk and eggs. Not fair. :angry:

Thanks! Well, I woke up at 4:30, but just didn't get out of bed until after 5:00, lol. Hopefully you'll get to relax soon!

Doggies licking your fingers.....I have that every day here. :) I don't know what I would do without my girls, and they were allowed to go to my brother's (their stinkiness usually deters social invitations :lol

very humourous indeed! :lol: and crazily sad...... :huh:

Yes, I'm so happy my cousin brings hers to all family functions...they are beagles...rescued from a research lab, and they are adorable.

it's just SO cold here today! (well, we are wussies in California, it's probably 50 degrees and that is freezing to me, to go hiking :lol: )

Yep, I had a long sleeve tee-shirt, a sweat shirt and the space heater on today...we really are wussies, we Californians, lol. :lol:

lyme ladies...today was a bad day for me...couldn't even make it into work. actually had time to read up on lyme today. is it ok to be terrified? :(

I'm sorry you had a bad day! Yes, I'd say not only is it okay, but I'd go so far to say that I might be worried if you weren't terrified! :(

You big babies! It was 68 and sunny here today!!! Very unusual!

:lol: I'm the first to admit, I'm a big baby! :lol::lol: I did have some small excuse though...I needed to get some stuff together for the trip--hadn't even begun to think about packing...it's hard to think about what to take to the caribbean when you're shivering, lol. :lol: I am now mostly packed though. Gotta love those space heaters. :lol:

Sure, for a minute but then remember you are in the company of Lunatic Laughing Lyme Ladies and you are going to be just fine. We are fearless, capable of exploring voodoo magic, confronting idiot doctors, investigating and treating ourselves, and very importantly we can laugh at the Lyme Monster. :ph34r: This is not bragging. :rolleyes::lol::lol: We are surrounded by friends here in Rachelville and we know that here is a place.... now I need the Cheers lyrics. :wub:

I must say, that is why I was supposed to go. I needed to hear that. I felt like I was being wrapped in a big hug.

That's one of my favorites!

Laura, what comforting words--I tell ya, I felt like I was wrapped in a hug as I read it. Just beautiful :) I was reading what you said about your decision to stay with the doctor at JH. It sounds like a good idea. He seems to be open-minded and realizes that you know what you're talking about. You are going to get this all worked out :)

Rinne, I hope you are feeling better today--you do sound more positive! I bought the tea you suggested--Tension Tamer. I haven't tried it yet because I bought it on Wednesday and didn't want to feel too relaxed while I needed to cook for Thanksgiving! Going to have a cup tonight, though :rolleyes: Thanks! Oh, glad you liked the Cheers theme--it just goes through my head sometimes :D

Rachel, How did you do yesterday? It about broke my heart that you were spending the day alone. I even told my husband that it must be some kind of cosmic joke that I can feel so close to people who are in reality thousands of miles away. You know that if we were closer geographically, you would have been invited to our table with us having whatever you could manage. :)

Donna, How was your resting day? It sounded very nice, actually! :D How cute do your cousin's beagles sound?

Sorry to everyone who's cold and can't seem to get warm. I always ran hot--to the point where the slighest exertion would make me sweat, even in the dead of winter. Now, I get cold easily--but today, it was georgeous, sunny and warm enough to open a few windows. It's supposed to be nice through the weekend. I hope we don't pay for this with a harsh, cold winter.

Susan--How you doin' today, Sweetie? Did you have to work? :unsure:

Carla, you look like one of the kids in your new picture--very cute! Your son is very handsome.

Wierd not having Andrea here :unsure: I hope all is going well for her with her dad and all.

I bought new napkins and placemats for Thanksgiving ... I've always had not enough, and with our new dining room table, I thought it was time for new ones. So, I washed them first and took them upstairs ... hubby asked what I was doing, and I told him I was ironing them. He couldn't comprehend that they needed to be ironed! Now, if I started ironing pillow cases, I don't know what he'd do!!

I'll be glad to get an update from Andrea.

:lol: Carla--I bought a new tablecloth and napkins! I lucked out--they're not cotton so I ran them thru the wash and put the tablecloth directly on the table from the dryer and folded the napkins quickly! No wrinkles and no ironing, either :D Bone lazy :ph34r:
