Betty and Queen: Mini goes to see her lipid doctor on May 5th.  I'm going to mention it to him and see what he says.  Without insurance, the testing is going to be expensive.  I'll see if he'll write me a lab slip for the blood work (YIKES!!!) and take it from there.  I never thought about it before, either.  I just assumed it was a case of my head being connected to my stomach.  I wonder, too, if has anything to do with me having an ostomy.  I'll have to talk to the lipid doc about that, too.  Thanks for mentioning it.  Betty, good luck on your final exam today!!  You're almost FREE!!!!

I need a vacation, too.  Actually, I'd love a day at the spa with full facial, hair, massage (preferrably by a nice young tan lad in a loin cloth), nails, and feet, while sitting in front of a huge picture window overlooking the Meditarranean sea (and other loin clothed young lads). And don't forget the tiarra and satin robe.  *sigh* But, in reality, I'm in my cotton house dress, sitting in my rocking chair over looking a pathetically neglected livingroom, a small mountain of laundry, listening to screaming kids.  My hair is in disarray, in need of a style and a bottle of color.  My toenails are painted, but need cut and my fingernails are nearly non-existant.  I have a list of things that I'd like to have done before the end of May and, so far, I'm behind on that, too. 

Ok, excuse me while I go back to my scantily clad fantasy...hope to see you there!

Mum, I like your idea of a vacation.   Now, what would we do with those scantily clothed lads? ;)

Good Morning Ladies,

Not feeling to good this morning. I think I may have a sinus infection. Head hurts like the dickens, stomach sick. Everything. I have been off of my blood pressure pills for 2 weeks. I need to get back on them. Anyways still planning for the wedding. I'm getting my menu together right now. SO lost his job. I think that is some of my stressing also. I pray he gets another one really really soon.

Shouts out to all my girlfriends on here. Catch up with you all later.

Keeping, I agree that you should be back on your BP meds ASAP.  You don't want anything really serious happening. 

As we all know, emotional hardships make our bodies much more vulnerable to infections.  You're going through a lot right now, planning a wedding, SO losing his job etc.  All these things contribute to other health issues. 

Take care of yourself.  We're here for ya.
  Luv,
Betty

Morning Ladies---

This thread will be brief since I just got up and has a killer headache. I rushed to check my sugar and it is at 162. I wonder if it is a side effect of the stuff they gave me yesterday for that cat scan? Nothing planned today but to go do some laundry since I have been putting it off. I just hate laundrymats,ugh.

Mum-- It sounds to me like you may have low sugar but as I like to say I'm not a doctor, I just diagnosed myself on the internet...hehe. But definitely something to look into. Here at one of the hospitals, if you don't have insurance, they have something called charity care that covers the bill, nothing like that there?

Keeping-- Girl, if you don't take that BP medicine, I am going to find you and make you take them... ;) Sorry to hear that your man lost his job, that has to suck considering the wedding is coming up. You don't need the stress though it can't be helped so please take your BP pills.

Betty-- Yeah, Drop It Like It's Hot was the shit. You should hear Beautiful by Snoop too. I will send those songs soon as I finish here.

I got to go, my head is pounding. I'll check back later.

Good Day ladies, hope everyone is well. I have been really down lately. Bored and broke. I am ready to go home, but I will be bored at home too. I have to wait and get my  ticket on the first of the month. I am really mad at myself, for not learning to mind my business when it comes to my best friend. I came here to help her move out of her house and into her new apartment, but I have been getting so pissed at her man and the way he treats her, that I think I should go home. Let me explain, we have been friends over 30 years. She is a really good person, works hard and has a man that won't even take out the trash, let alone work!! They have only been together a few months,also he cheats on her and I know this because our other friends (a couple man and woman) see it. She is moving because her house was goinng to be in forclosure,while shes at work, her man sits and talks on phone and plays on his laptop all day. Luckily she had sold the house before they foreclose. She complains about him and how she is not letting him move in with her, but still gives him money and takes him out to dinners etc. Sunday we had a pow wow with  some close friends who talked to her in love about how she doesn't need him bringing her down and that she can do better and even about the other woman, his ex .But I think it went in one ear and came out the other. Her man  is not violent or anything , but very childish. I over heard him talking very loud on the phone yesterday to his x who has recently move away ,about some personal shit, lets just say, I hope he has not given my friend an STD ! So I have been minding my business, I would never tell her anything because I am suppose to be staying out of it and minding my own business right. She is very stressed lately and
had been snapping at me and other friends. She has admitted this and apologized. She has to move on Thursday and has not one box  in the house yet!.I can't do anything to help her pack until she gets some boxes and allows me too. Of course he has not lifted his hand to do anything, nor has he moved his stuff yet. So I am sorry for ranting ladies, but i just had to share, B is like a sister to me and I am protective of her. If this man is what she wants then so be it, but don't complain to me, right ? Minding my own business for now, peace ladies.

Good evening ladies,

Queen, I think what you had done is called something like a dye-contrast (but I'm not sure).  I hope your head's feeling better.  Yeah, it was probably the dye that caused it.  I hear other peole say the same thing who have been through that.

Netta, sorry you're bummed.  It's hard to stay out of something like that.  It seems that we women have to learn on our own.  Outsiders can see perfectly what's going on; but we seem blind sometimes.  You're wise to stay out of it.   Getting too personally involved would probably only cause problems.

Well, tough bitches, I am officially done with school for the summer.  Yipee!  The final only took me like 40 minutes.  I don't know how I did on it as there were a couple questions I didn't think would be on it, therefore I didn't study anything about them.  Oh well.  The professor told me everyone would get a good grade.  If I wasn't diabetic and an addict, I would surely go out and get good and soused to celebrate. 

This afternoon for dinner, I got bbq pulled pork, baked beans and seasoned red potatoes.  I ate 1/4 of it and felt like I had just ate a whole buffet.  And my sugar shot way up.  Someone in a thread in Living With mentioned that bbq made his sugar go up.  It must be there's a lot of sugar in the sauce.  Anyway, the rest of the dinner is in the frig and I don't know if I'll eat anymore of it or not.  It was delicious, but I hate feeling so full that I have to lay down. 

Nothing else planned this evening.  I might watch the new episode of 'Law & Order, SVU.'  I really like that show and have not kept up with it like I usually would.  Have a good evening ladies.

I got a girlfriend like that Netta. Not the boyfriend drama currently but we have been friends, kinda like sisters since we where in elementary school. So I've seen my fair share of drama.
She lives out of state. Her husband is decent. Likely the best man she'd ever get. She is not good to her men. Never has been. Growing up with her she was a knock out with a woman's body while mine was still like a boys.
Sometimes I'd think some of the guys got what they deserved dating her just because she was sexy.
There was only ever one fella who ignored her and preferred me. Of course he turned out to be flakey. But what the hay I had one guy pick me at least LOL
Likely because I didn't give a damn that he drove a nice car and wasn't interested in him buying me anything.
Hell maybe he just wasn't shallow. who knows.

Anywho, hope your visit gets easier and your trip home is a good one.

Ladies---

Yep, my headache is gone but I have a headache of another kind. There is a weed drought in my town because of a major bust in Cleavland. Anyone who live around there? So, I am whining... :'( Keep in mind, no weed and I don't eat.I'm going to have to force myself to nibble. Anyhoo, my clinic nurse Leah called me back about the messages I had left her. She told me my ID doc may not switch my meds because he has to see my liver elevated 5 times. I'm thinking, huh? This is the second time, I got scared and haven't taken my meds for about 3 days. Now I am wondering if I should stay off them or start back up. Not sure how long it takes for the virus to mutate but has missed doses before. I am expecting to be detectable but I didn't tell Nurse Leah that. I figured that damn stuff from the scan gave me a headache but I guess that beats the runs which is what they warned me could happen.

Me and the roomie got the laundry done. I am glad that is over and I am wiped out. I am still procrastinating about my hair so I have been wearing 2 pigtails. Before laundry, I invited my oldest sister over to chill. She actually acted like it meant a lot to her, I dunno, maybe it did. She's a homebody like me except she goes to the Y every day to work out. But Goddess knows she can talk my deaf ears off. Not to be mean but I have to take her in doses. But I have been calling now and again.

I must admit that I am worried about the results of this scan. Cause I know something is wrong because the lumps weren't there before. I am just wondering what it is and what is causing it. And am praying it is not cancer or something. But for the moment I am trying to put it in the back of my mind.

Netta---I don't blame you for staying out of your friend's love life. A hard head makes for a soft ass as my Mama use to say. Your friend needs to see things on her own and ain't no telling what her sorry ass man is feeding her. Just wait for the day when she says she should've listened to you. It'll be coming. And aren't you healing up that leg? What you doing trying to help her move? Girl, if she ain't doing nothing to make that sorry man do anything, why should you? Girl, go home.

Someone needs to step up and start the next thread....Any volunteers?
