Hi, and good morning, everyone:-) Got your coffee/tea/etc.? Good.
Yep, I'm still living in a whirl of panic about Mr. Leo, AKA Hubby. I am being optimistic with such enthusiasm 12 hours a day that I spend the other 12 exhausted and scared. I suck at all this "I'll be fine" routine. Too much PTSD (diagnosed) involved.
But I survived the dentist!
EDITED B/C DS MESSED UP FORMATTING AGAIN!!!!
Famous last words:
"The safety catch is pointless." (referring to the one on a gun)
"Hold my beer."
"Anyone can do that. Watch."
"The ice looks safe." (Where I grew up, alas, often someone's last words. At least till they were defrosted...)
"Of course, it's unloaded." (Admittedly, sometimes the last words someone *hears*, having trusted the speaker.)
"I don't need a map." (PRobably not the actual last words, bu tthe last ones known before someone sets off and is on an episode of Missing People..)
"They can't hit an elephant at this distance." Actual last words of US General J Sedgwick, when warned by an aide of enemy snipers. A sniper got him within moments of his saying that.
In 1808, Harvard University formed the first college orchestra in the US. And still, nobody pays much attention to these things. Poor college orchestras. *sigh*
Happy Birthday to Toronto, Ontario, Canada --- sort of. Today in 1834, it was renamed from "York" to Toronto.
In 1886, the first nursing journal was published. It was titled "The Nightingale" for famed nurse Florence Nightingale. More modern ones include "American Journal of Nursing" and similar.
Remember the ALamo! No, seriously. Today in 1836, the siege of the Alamo in San Antonio, Texas, ended. The army of 3,000 under Santa Anna finally defeated 189 very stubborn men. Nice video and stuff via this link, if you can get your video to work. Mine won't. http://www.thealamo.org/
In 1960, Switzerland finally got around to granting women the right to vote in municipal elections. Yeah. National, sure. Local, no. Wait, what? *headdesk*****
And now to pretend I'm okay. Whee. Healing to all, and hugs as well....
I really hate when DS stops recognizing line breaks/enters unless doubled.... ARGH.
Hey everyone,This is my first time posting here. After going to the 10-20 doctors and specialists over the last 3 years they finally drew a conclusion that I have fatigue and fibromyaglia. I've been thru hell and now they have me on cymbalta which is the devil in a capsule form. I had to stop taking it and what did I do that for omg! the pain, nauseaousness, fingers and toe tingling, brain zaps,...
Good morning!I apologize for the brevity but we had stormy wweather last night and I had to, despite agony, make usre all drainage worked (it did) and at one point I was putting an umbrelaa into the bushes to shield a cat that wouldn't even budge into the porch during a downpour. Yes, I'm nuts. In fairness, so was the cat.And I have an app't with physio doc in 24 more hours. (Me, count down?...
