all that moving is hard on a family, but especially the kids

it just works that way, sprite. maybe because of the way the injuries altered my brain?

most literally on the cusp then, Dee. Tough place to be.

3:52 am

I hate trying new meds... have so many medication allergies; hate to try anything new until it is absolutely necessary
3:52 am
tygerbryght

oh, volley, I SO identify with that. just last month I had a reaction to Cipro - had taken it before without probs
3:53 am
sprite

might be, tyger. Usually the clues on babanon are the same as lickety's: first 2 letters, length and points. Is there a way I could organise them for you so you can use them?
3:53 am
clownfacedhunter

keep it clean & safe I agree.. do what u can on what u have.. eat clean and be healthy.. if & when u can find good food
3:53 am
tygerbryght

I don't think so, sprite, but it's really sweet of you to offer. don't worry about it. I'll live without doing this grid :D
3:53 am
VolleymomDee

know that feeling... unfortunately one of the probs is they change the binding agents, so may not actually be allergic to meds, but the binders instead... bet that was ghastly tyger

new meds set up the entire balance. I know.

all pain is bad. I had a doctor friend describe it like a teeter totter; you can handle so much pain, then a little bit more comes and you are out of balance and in a mess...

Hi clownfacedhunter, I too have RAsawn
4:01 am

RA is one of the things I'm SO thankful I don't have. chronic pain is bad enough, without having all that remodeling, inflammation, etc., on top of it
4:01 am

Sorry.

praise God; many medical strides in treating RA; many worse things to have
4:02 am

VMD .. I fell and had to have surguery.. and a metal plate to support the bone..
4:02 am

that is very tr4, Dee. I once fell and hurt my knee, about 8 years ago and the spot is still tender. But at that time I couldn't handle that knee on top of all the rest... while the rest was worse, lol.

Before I was diagnosed I thought RA was just a touch of rheumatism. Far from it. I get angry sometimes because I have worked hard all my life and it seems unfair but then I snap out of it.
4:03 am
clownfacedhunter

one with the metal plate and one hat I don't thing is healed yet!
4:03 am
tygerbryght

that's another of the nasty things about RA, the slow healing
4:04 am
clownfacedhunter

the dr.. can't quite believe it...it will be clsoe to a year.. and ya.. I still feel it..
4:04 am
tygerbryght

easy to understand, pat. I think most of us with chronic conditions have to yank back from the start of a pity party every now and again
4:04 am
sprite

Pat, I think being angry is very normal in this situation. Great of you to be able to snap out of it again too.
4:04 am

and now with the metal plate.. when it gets cold.. IT GETS COLD!!!

there are several here with chronic pain of some kind; very helpful to share when you are hurting. I read Psalms when pain is at its worst. If David and Job can tell God how angry they are and then be uplifted by Him, I feel I can do same...

Hisprite, cos I added a grid word to my message - not concentrating, which is another effect of RA. Nuff said re RA now for me

Brrrrrrrr. I can just imagine. I'm very sensitive to cold. are you able to keep it well wrapped?
4:06 am

so true about concentration pat... glad to hear it is not just me; tend to repeat things which daughter hates. I forgot about plates getting cold.
4:06 am

ah, I did much worse earlier today, Pat, don't worry about it ;)
Nice to see you in chat, I hope you feel free to chat more whenever you want. About anything.

we have had terminal illnesses amongst friends lately - 2 cancers and lou gehrig's disease, so thankful not to have those...
4:07 am

Just a mo I have to ask questions now. My legs are always cold and I wrap them in everything but clingfilm, maybe I should try that. Is it bad circulation and if so what's godd for that?
4:08 am
clownfacedhunter

me too.. VMD.. thougt it was just u & I .. sorry to bore the rest of you!!!.. now let's get on with the game.. thanks for all ur advice.. nice to have people that can relate...!!! :)
4:08 am
tygerbryght

pat, have you tried insulated things, like down-filled?
4:08 am
VolleymomDee

not sure, I am usually hot (inflammation often causes higher temps)... so I am rarely cold.. might also try silk long underwear
4:09 am
tygerbryght

and how about other kinds of layering?
4:09 am
VolleymomDee

not a bore clown; very helpful to share and support one another
4:09 am
tygerbryght

silk underwear is *very* warming
4:09 am
sprite

I second that wholeheartedly, Dee. Have seen much worse pains and conditions than mine lately. I try to be at peace with mine and make the best of it. Though sometimes I am angry, pathetic and rebellious about it, lol.
4:09 am

not at all boring, just sharing, clown. Chat has room for silliness and pain, good ne4 and bad.
4:10 am

if you don't know where to find silk undies locally, try searching online. I have some I bought years ago, and used when I lived in Michigan
4:10 am
Patxxx

Hi Tyger, I have tried lots of things and most of them make me look so unsexy and elephantine etc etc, which sometimes makes my kids laugh. It is funny sometimes.
4:10 am
VolleymomDee

I think that is human sprite. When you see folks older who can do many more things, it is hard not to be furious.
4:10 am
tygerbryght

sprite is SO right. we have some pretty strange conversations on here sometimes
4:11 am
tygerbryght

hon, comfort has to come first, when your health is involved - and it is, in this case
4:11 am

This place is a true blessing. I am so thankful for my babble, friends!@
4:12 am

I just got a "Wintersilks" catalog in the mail yesterday.
4:12 am
tygerbryght

silk undies are quite thin, and you just we4 them under normal clothes. but they come with long sleeves and long legs, just like men's longjohns
4:12 am
sprite

when the legs are really cold, insulating doesn't help much, I have found. There must be some heat to BE kept within to start with. When sitting still it may help to put your feet on a hot water bottle. And insulate, of course. But on the walk, I wouldn't know.
4:12 am
loredana

so grateful you are here volley

I bought some thermal leggings at M&S. Great, I thought, but whilst they work the fit is so bad. I went to the supermarket and by the time I got home they had stretched big enough to fit the veggie section in.

Hugs and much love to each of you! You are very dear. My favorite prayer: from Ps 143... "Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have placed my trust in you. Show me the way that I should go, for to you I lift up my soul." He is our refuge, our stronghold in time of trouble ... let Him bring each of us rest and peace and preserve us to the morrow!!!

well, mkg... i am pretty sure no one could be worse... so at least there is that. and i think the one we will have is bright, motivated, and will surround himself with intelligent people

Hi Pam
9:21 am
mkg

he is also questionable as to corruption............there were many links with stuff i find awful. for example this organization that paid people to sign up voters and then were found to be corrupt. and his reverand was an issue. you dont spend 20 years hearing that stuff and come out unscathed.
9:21 am
mkg

and his chief of staff is someone i hear is very corrupt and has shading dealings.
9:22 am
pam

hhi, kje, LOL
9:22 am
mkg

his chief of staff is some jewish guy. and i heard he is extremely corrupt.
9:22 am
kje

mkg... there are multiple sides to everything, and i think there are differeing news reports out there.. but one thing i feel confident of is that he beats the alternative
9:23 am
pam

His chief of staff served in a civilian position in Israel druing Gulf1, think he is in intelligence...googled him all night when the announcement was made, saw no corruption, just tenacity, must do more research
9:23 am
JBV

mkg, I don't know what you have been listening to or reading but I urge you to have an open mind
9:24 am
pam

I agree... i think the whole guilt by association thing is dangerous.... McCain's former ministerial counselor said hitler did god's work... no one thinks McCain thought that....
9:24 am
JBV

the McCain campaign was nothing but mudslinging at the end - Obama took the high road and did not sling back, that's probably why we haven't heard about "corruption" etc on the other side
9:25 am
pam

I am hopeful that bridges to all from all can be built... I am hopeful that hate takes a back seat to teamwork, that religion and race will soon be characteristics and not criteria, I am hopeful that talk bests bullets...
9:26 am
pam

I am hopeful....
9:26 am
kje

we have heard of it though... he bungling of the campaign funds, palin's 2 ethics violations charges, mccains involvement in bad political dealings in the 70s... whatever! the point from here is that we have a new president-elect and we should at least give him a chance... there is way too much fear mongering out there and it can get dangerous if people don't cool down a bit (like all the recent reports of guns selling out)... chill US.. that is what i say
9:26 am

BerniceQ

I have been lurking but I feel I have to respond to MKG's statements. ACORN is not corrupt. Anyone who registers voters gets money for each registration they get. People ACORN found to register voters filled out false registrations to get the money. ACORN saw they were false, but are legally bound to turn them in. They turned them in but alerted the election board to the several they thought were false, because they were legally not allowed to discard them themselves. The individuals who wanted to be paid for each registration were the ones at fault, not ACORN, which made every effort to remove the false registrations from the rolls.

mkg, perhaps you misunderstood, voters were not paid to register, but the workers who go out to collect signatures were paid

(not that i can help with clues personally, i haven't done the grid today! just hanging out here.)
9:33 am

i chalk it up to fear mongering on the right, harp... obama did not run on gun control, hasn't actually mentioned it too much... but gun owners are convinced that their right to own guns will be abolished... i find it somewhat fascinating (in a sad way)
9:33 am

I think the run on guns is fear, harp......

Walter has announced that he would like to help set the table. That's my little trooper! For those who missed it he fubmbled a heavy stoneware plate onto his foot last night and scared me to death, but he's escaped with only a vivid blue line and doesn't mind shoes and socks on, so, whew. Glad he wants to get right back on the horse!

12:17 pm
Uneaixoise

oh, that makes me nuts . . .
12:17 pm
hurshy

and he doesn't have access to the info i want because live chat is a new feature for them and they haven't got it fully up and running
12:18 pm
nancethefan

don't you hate when that happens hursh?
12:18 pm
hurshy

and he is so so so apologetic
12:18 pm
nancethefan

i always need money, but i don't always have any :o(
12:18 pm
hurshy

and he's worried because people give him low satisfaction ratings
12:18 pm
Uneaixoise

aw, poor guy!
12:18 pm
hurshy

and he's tripping over himself to talk about how he wants to make his customers happy, we are their bread and butter and he honors and respects us
12:19 pm
nancethefan

why are you rating him?
12:19 pm
hurshy

(gee, how did i figure out he was in india)
12:19 pm

you know, when you do live chat they do a little survey after to see if you got the help you needed and whatnot

12:20 pm

ok - i know what you mean - i always try to give people a good rating unless they are mule butts
12:21 pm
cybernan

ha -- just noticed my name is in the grid (real name as well has cyber name)
12:21 pm
hurshy

they haven't given him the info he needs to do the job and then he gets low ratings bc of it... so i told him if his bosses give him a hard time, tell them [my real name] says they are idiots
12:21 pm
cybernan

found it
12:22 pm
nancethefan

have him tell his bosses to come into this site & we will handle his rating - lol
12:23 pm
hurshy

and i hate to think how little they presumably pay him
12:23 pm
nancethefan

i know - that's why the jobs are overseas & no longer here in the states
12:23 pm
Uneaixoise

relatively speaking, those jobs pay "well" . . . and are considered high-prestige . . .
12:23 pm

and you know, it's one thing to hire them and yeah they are good jobs over there and so forth but the fact that they ARE trying to "hide" it with english names is beyond irritating
12:29 pm
hurshy

i mean, at least be transparent about your business practices
12:31 pm
nancethefan

yes it is - it must be company policy - we need to send msgs to the company telling them we know what they are doing & to quit having there CSRs select their nonethnic games
12:31 pm
hurshy

esp if you really believe they are ethical
12:31 pm

they all have "English" names and go through intensive training, including role play, etc. to make them "American"
12:32 pm

well - they need more work at it - lol
12:32 pm

i'm sure i don't speak for everyone, but i for one do not wish to be kept in this imaginary bubble where only Americans exist and we're encouraged not to think about what the rest of the world faces

And being young, naive artists at the time we settled on Amsterdam, partly because one could learn the language after arrival. In th eyears since we have matured and settled down and abandoned Amsterdam for more sedate and comfortable Haarlem.

Planning.... hmmm. Well, yes an dno. We picked teh destination, sold everything we owned for $3000, packed up some backpacks, and bouight one way tickets.

Well. We were illegal for 7 years, had to collect bottles in the park to return for money for food, had no heat for a couuple of very hard winters, Iw as seriously injured at two illegal manual labor jobs...

UGH, that sounds really hard, monkey!

But now we are citizens, my husband works full time, and I am ten weeks away (all going well) from a Bachelor's degree in social work (in Dutch). But it has NOT been a breeze.

Now we have our beautiful son, have scrabbled our way into quite a decent neighborhood in a great city, and are starting to feel a shred less morally exhausted. But the years have FLOWN by... I'll be 40 in January! How the heck did that happen???
1:21 pm
MonkeyGames

Right now I am I admit frazzled out of my mind. Getting this degree in Dutch has been at least three times as hard as I thought. Started out with a class of 32 and now (including three new people) we number 7, as well, and they were all native speakers! But tenmore weeks... ten more weeks... then I may start behaving like a sane person for a change.
1:22 pm

That is amazing, to get the degree in Dutch!!!!!

Dutch is a deceptively difficult language. But Walter (in the icon pic) is being raised bilingually, which provides a cognitive advantage. He's been speaking some English with Dutch grammar lately-- cute as heck!

Now we are fully naturalized. Dual citizenship is not allowed except in rare cases, so we are JUST Dutch. Walter's never been American.

back - just played a little Bubblez at gatorarcade. it is a fun mindless game to play if your brain begins to hurt from seeking words on the grid. i learned a new method in bubblez - you have to have 3 or more of the same color bubblez to eliminate them. i found, by accident, that you can bank a bubble off the sides to make 3 or more of the same color hence eliminating them - lol - it really is a brain relaxation game - LOLOL
