  1. Well, thank God! What a relief! I thought you were depressed, you silly girl; didn't know you were thinking about your bones! Fosamax is what I take for osteoporosis, plus vitamin D. I've never heard that prozac could help; must be something new. I won't yell at you about cutting the lexapro dose in half, considering the circumstances. Maybe you could get it cheaper in Canada. I don't know how that works, but I assume it isn't too difficult a process, since a lot of people do it. Love you much! Cissie
  2. Susie, I echo everything you said about Prozac! Don't know why you're hungry all the time. Maybe you're getting better??? I love you dearly also! Cissie Look who's calling people crazy, Esteemed Goofiness! I emailed you earlier today. Did it get lost in the ether again?
  3. One of my sisters has taken it for years, with remarkably good results. I just emailed you, so read and heed!!! I love you dearly! Cissie
  4. Guess what! I took my socks off, and no more pings! Good night all! I love you! Cissie
  5. I'm sure he would consult Modigliani. Shhhhh. Listen. Do y'all hear those pings?
  6. I beg your pahdon!!! To whom are you speaking? Granted, Madame Celia is a bit of a nutcase; I, however, am considered quite crazy in all but the best of society! WHAT? CROP CIRCLES? Celia must leave poor Jim alone so he can investigate immediately!!! Although, on second thought ..... have you been drinking faucet water again? I have it from an unimpeachable source that faucet water causes hallucinations in Clairol-free women. Oh, yes, always thinking of Jim, Jim, Jim! Since you asked, the digits will be in the high 100's until midnight, at which time they will plummet to 120.
  7. If Jim had bothered to ask I would have told him. The twinkies were a lure for your dadgoned lizard! I didn't just send sympathies, my dear; I acted! It's not my fault that he turned green! It would never have happened if he had come out of his hidey hole and eaten the darn twinkies. Yes, the sponge situation seems to be unretro and protonic at the moment, not to mention reciprocitous. However, we must be patient; Jim has promised to stay out of the sun this evening and rectify the error.
  8. Listen here, Miss Imbe-CELE! My slippers are black, not blue! How many times do I have to tell you that! I slink around the house every night in my black negligee and sexy black slippers. Only Aaron knows that I wear long woolen underwear beneath all that glamour, and he's not telling! I'm trying to seduce him away from the Commie News Network, which, as everyone knows, was conceived by Red Ted's celiac-maddened brain. The sponges you sent me arrived today, but unfortunately I can't use them, as they are soaked with pure, clean, unadulterated, spring water, and are, therefore, rendered useless for cleaning butts and toilets. I have emailed a duplicate complaint to Jim, with the suggestion that you all check the water content of the sponges before shipping them to Robbin's bottom-impaired husband. Sincerely yours, Madame Cissie
  9. Well said, Ravenwood. Amen. God bless The United States of America. Cissie
  10. Beware Of Dasani Water On Your Flight

    So ... we've gone from water to terrorists. If I can't take my own water aboard a plane, I just won't fly. No problem; it's such a tiny sacrifice. I know, however, that many people don't have that option. Is it possible to call ahead of time, and request a specific water for someone on a restricted diet? I really don't know. Any thoughts on that? Ursula, this is not a good day, September 11, 2006, to suggest to Americans that the people arrested for plotting to blow up planes might really be innocent, misunderstood, little darlings. Perhaps you should gather information from sources other than "Hate-America/Hate-Democracies" web sites. There are people out there, people with Dark Ages mentalities, who want to wipe us from the face of the earth. September 11, 2001 Let us never forget. God bless The United States of America. Cissie
  11. Just a drive-by. I'm finding it difficult to understand what some of y'all are saying about the connection between gluten intolerance/celiac disease and bipolar disorder. Anyone care to enlighten me? Is this just a theory, or has it been scientifically proved? What about all the people who are bipolar and don't have celiac? I believe it could be very dangerous to go on a gluten-free diet, and at the same time quit taking meds for a brain chemistry problem like bipolar disorder, or panic attacks. Look at what folllowing such bad advice, without consulting a doctor, has done to our Susan! Darlin' Susie, feed your brain by taking your meds; and please consider joining the Daily Strength forum, where you would have access to doctors. Love you! Cissie
  12. ANDREA, you don't have to have celiac disease or gluten intolerance to have a B-12 deficiency. It's an autoimmune disease, separate from any other autoimmune disease. Maybe you should get re-tested. If you have it, you have to take shots the rest of your life. Cissie
  13. CARLA, please DO get a B-12 test! If you need B-12, you probably would need a lot more than what you've been taking sublingually, at least at first. Cecile was so low on B-12 that she had to have a shot every day for a while, to get her built up. So did my sister. Any doctor can help you with this - he doesn't have to be intelligent!!! Cissie
  14. Good morning, all! I haven't been on since Friday afternoon, so I'm too far behind to try to catch up. LEAH, I am so sorry to hear about your friend. I know there's nothing I can say right now to ease the sadness and aching, but I send you prayers, love, and hugs. My mother used to quote something that perhaps, when your grief is not so raw, you'll think of, and smile. "God gave us memory, that we might have roses in December." Cissie
  15. Hi, Deb! Very brief synopsis: White Russia/Belorussia/Lithuania - a principality in the northwest, next to Poland on a map - under Russian control at time of the Socialist Revolution (1917) against the Tzar and his government; the Revolution was almost immediately afterward taken over by the radical Bolsheviks (Marxists/Communists). A counterrevolutionary movement arose, in 1918, to attempt to overthrow the Communist government; and the Russian Civil War began, lasting for years. For various, somewhat vague reasons, this counterrevolutionary army was called the White Army. It was composed of cossacks, army officers, the bourgeoisie, educated young men, and members of various political parties. Most intellectuals either joined the White Army, or gave it their support; thus they were called White Russians. (Think "Doctor Zhivago") The Red Army prevailed, as we well know, and wealthy, well-educated White Russians fled, mostly to Paris. French was the language of the Royal Court of Russia, and of all educated people. The White Russian father of my friend in Paris was definitely an intellectual. As I said, this is a very brief synopsis. I hope it made sense. Have a lovely weekend! Cissie
