Thanks Win! I would start a new thread but I am not really sure how to do it. Today at our staff meeting we found out the projected enrollment for next year and it looks like 5th grade will end up with at least 36 students..... :o :'( I don't even want to think about it....CRAZY! I guess I will deal with it next year.

Have a good night!

I guess I am glad I spent most of the day and night gaming....It took forever for a new thread to pop but thanks Wini. The title did make me laugh....Nothing interesting happened at all for me today. My son called and spoke to him for a hot second, wondering why he didn't get the money order I dropped in the mail on Friday. Maybe he got it after he talked to me, I'll ask when I talk with him again. He said he wrote me a letter so I hope I will get it today sometime.

Wini---I do agree your son looks very much like you but I like the blonde better. Is the darker hair natural or colored? A friend came through today with his hair colored and looked like a Dennis Rodman reject. I looked at him but was shaking my head to myself.

I need to go to bed. I have my MRI in the morning and then my ID in the afternoon. Maybe I'll have something to report. I'll check in after the appointments. Sweet Dreams....

Wendy - u are too funny,-"charged with battery"

Queen good luck at the doctors today.

last night i was supposed to go for a movie with a friend, so i knocked off late at work and it was too late to get in. what does he do?  i thought we were going to grab some food and sit and talk or something, instead he drags me shopping for his groceries. and he didnt buy me anything! not that im complaining or anything coz everything is damn expensive its ridiculous.  takeways for $800mil. ha! i bumped into my little sister by the takeaway, and when i got home with just some eggs we'd chanced in a supermarket and no takeaway, she's like "Chicken Inn too expensive huh?" She was also empty handed thank you very much. Wonder why these men ask us out when they cant afford it. Anyway we ended cooking supper at 8pm otherwise we wouldve gone to bed hungry.
I cant find underwear to buy in town.  For real.  Its either ridiculous expensive lacy tiny g-strings or horrible cheap Chinese made panties which fall apart at anytime.  My aunt once bought a lacy pair of Chinese underwear. She only wore it once. When she wanted to wear them again she noticed a thread hanging loose so she pulled it.  The whole thing just unravelled in her hands and she had to throw it away, there was no way to sew it back together or anything.  Its crazy. I'll go hunting again today after work , see if i can find a proper shop with normal underwear that i can actually afford.

Keeping - im so excited for you.  I hope everything is going well for the wedding.

Good morning ladies!  Spent all stinking day yesterday seeing doctors and getting Mini's labs.  We (me, Mini, and #6) left the house at 5:30am and we finally got home around 1:30pm.  All I wanted to do was crawl in bed for a few hours, but i wasn't that lucky.  I caught up on the laundry, and got supper ready early, then we all headed off to #5's t-ball game.  Got home, baths, bed, then I fell asleep in my rocking chair.  #2 decided he wasnt' going to sleep and was up all danged night.  I'm in a very foul mood today so I'm trying to stay away from everyone - which is pretty futile.  Hoping to get our onions and herbs planted today. 

No rejection letter yet.  We did get a letter saying that I had to prove my citizenship.  Hubby took pity on me and brought everything to DHHR for me when I got home with the girls.  The lady wasn't there, so the secretary made copies of everything and said someone will call us "soon" - I'm not holding my breath.  Friday, we go back to Morgantown to see Mini's PID.

I'll write more later, I'm really tired and my brain is having problems putting thoughts together.

Much love to you all!

Morning ladies,

This site is seriously screwing up.  It's taking forever to get things pulled up, posted etc.  And when I tried to get on, the first few times, I couldn't.  I hope it gets taken care of soon.

Queen, I'm thinking about you.  Good luck.

Tendai, I'm heartbroken every time I read about something else in your country.  Please know you're in my thoughts as well. 

Mum, I'm in a foul mood myself, but it's because of the frustrations of this site right now. 

Housing is supposed to do an inspection today.  Other than that, I'll probably read.  Nothing else to report right now.  I'll try back again later.

Hi Betty - i was also having trouble with the site,  a couple of my posts seemed to have disappeared or somthing.
I'm not reading much these days, its either tv or movies.  last book i read was Jackie Collins 'All the men are married' or something like that. Not exactly a thriller... we were talking yesterday with my friend after the aborted movie and he was saying the international community is going to end up just watching and waiting at us coz we're just too tame and peaceful. we're not rioting in the streets or burning buildings or destroying property or anything and we are allowing all this shit to happen to us. people just talk and complain and yet we continue to go and buy the overpriced commodities and use the overpriced transport. okay so we dont have a choice. we should just boycott everything or do something drastic and effective, but non-violent of course ::).

Mum - i hope u feel better soon, cant imagine what u go thru every single day with the kids. i'd probly go crazy. u should probly change your name to Supermum.

i had a visit from a guy who works in one of the other doctors' rooms. just to chat. he looks like that TV guy from the comedy "All of us" the one who's living with his ex-wife, but he's got a wider nose and thicker lips but the resemblence is there. its so sweet the way he just walked in. i really dont know what to do with him. but he's nice.

Well we got the name and license of the man that ran into him, the police have a lady who is witnessed it and called the police herself!The cop is going to be repremanded for not doing his job! Throwing an object at a moving vehicle is a felony!!! anyhow sis is getting a lawyer to handle the case.
Queen-
 I hope you get a stimulus check!, I have yet to get mine in the mail. your camera takes good pictures!
Keeping -best wishes on you're wedding!

Wini---I do agree your son looks very much like you but I like the blonde better. Is the darker hair natural or colored?
He was foolish enough to color it black just to see what it would look like. I took him to a beauty supply store earlier and bought stuff to strip the color off his hair. My house smells like ass now but his hair is kind of a caramel blonde now. We will wait a week or so and recolor it blonde.
He will wind up bald so it doesn't matter to me if he experiments with his hair. His hair is already thinning and receding. His natural color is a dark blonde like mine.


tendai - I have taken it for granted how easy it is to get underwear here. I'd rather wear plain old cotton underwear than those lacy things. G strings make you want to pick at your butt all day. and lace can be itchy.

Hi Ladies

Win - great title, thanks!

Queen, how did the MRI and ID go? Hope it was OK. What a day for you...

Tendai I don't know the guy you mentioned but good luck!! why wouldn't he come talk to you, your sweet and gorgeous. Shame about last night though. What a mess. I wish I could send you some undies. I hate those cheap Chinese ones or thongs b/c both are usually synthetic and give me an itch at best and yeast infection at worst!

Mom what a nightmare, I hate sleeplessness.

Viv - 36 is a lot, however in all my years at school we were at least 40. But I have never had a good teacher, and with that amount of students no wonder none of them left a mark. I hope you will get some assistance.

Moon hope you're OK.

Snow I dunno if you may have missed my last post, but THANK YOU for the lovely necklace, it's gorgeous and I absoltely cherish it, thanks so much!

It's evening and quite warm here, summer's here and I am so not ready for it. I feel like my body's changing so much and my face too, my hands and temples are getting skinny, but for the first time in my life I am getting a double chin and I am not even that fat - I mean this is not my heaviest ever but I have never had that before. I pray that this isn't lipo. I know if it is I'll probabaly handle it but I don't want to.

I have to work a lot on the upcoming weeks and months but I am procrastinating again, I really worry about my lack of motivation, it's a threat, but its like, if there's so much to do, I just freeze in panic.

Oh well.... Hugs to my sisters, all of you have a very special place in my heart.

Hi Guys,
Drag- I did see your post, I am sorry I didn't get a chance to reply, it has been crazy around here lately, for some reason.  I think actually it is always crazy around here but it is finally catching up to me.  You are very welcome, Drag.  I am so glad you like it.  I totally understand the procrastination thing, I have been having a lot of problems concentrating lately myself.  Maybe if you promise yourself something you always wanted ,it will help you to get motivated :)

Queen- I hope your day went well and you found out what is going on or hopefully not going on. 

Win- Great title!  I love your new poses!

Mum- Are you feeling better?

Tendai- I hope things get situated over thier soon, those prices are just ridiculous.  I would have sent you undies :) at this rate though who knows if you would ever get them.

Betty-  How are you doing?  Was it this week you were going to see about the volunteer work? What did you end up getting for your grandson?

Hi Wish- How are the kids and work? 

Viv- 36 kids, good googly moogly, I hope you have a classroom helper. 

cjc- Hope you and Robert are doing well.

Netta- Anything happen after the police report was filed?

Moon- How are you feeling?


I have been playing catch up since my son was home from school sick last week.  I haven't really got much stuff done for myself.  I went and started raking the lady I volunteer for yard and got a call from the alarm co. , that something was happening at my back door ...again.  I got home and found nothing...which I guess is better than something.  I feel like a huge weight has been taken off my shoulders with my sons father being in jail.  It will give me some time of not having to worry about the safety and well being of my son.  He is sad for his father which is to be expected but I think it will all work out in the long run.  He is such an old soul.  For being 9 , he is very caring and compassionate.  My parents came out this weekend and he had everyone come in his room and hold hands so he could say a prayer for my mothers dog that had passed away.  Where he gets that from I don't know, he did the same thing around my Grandfather when he passed 4 years ago.

Hope everyone is doing well.  I apologize if I missed anyone.

Evening ladies,

It seems like everything's alright here again.

Tendai, you guys over there must really be terrified of your government. If that were happening here, believe me, there'd be riots galore.  But of course here, people have access to all kinds of weapons and a lot of people don't show much fear. 

Netta, I am so glad that your sister filed a report and something's actually being done about it.  Good luck to your nephew.

Drag, if you're getting lipo, you'll be in an exclusive club (hee).  I've been dealing with it for years, mostly the belly and skinny legs.  I procrastinate all the time.  It's amazing I ever get anything done.

Snow, I go to my ASO tomorrow to talk to this guy about starting probably in the next two weeks.  My grandson, granddaughter and their "mother" will be coming for a visit this weekend.  I got my grandson a few educational coloring books (numbers, letters) and some crayons. Your son sounds adorable. 

Queen, I'm thinking about you and wondering how your appointment went.

Housing did their inspection today.  The guy seemed really picky.  Of course, I don't know what he was writing down, but when he was done he said "well, everything looks alright."  So, hopefully, that's the end of that. 

Besides going to my ASO tomorrow, I also have a doctor's appointment.  I'm getting a pap/pelvic/depo shot.  I'm having some troublesome irritation right now down in the vaginal area.  I don't know what it is and I'm not jumping on the diagnosing bandwagon.  I'll see what the doctor says tomorrow.  I'll also be getting labs done, so I should know sometime next week where everything's at.  I always have the lab send me copies of everything. 

Other than that, it's been a quiet evening.  I'll check in later, to see if Queen has anything to report.

Edited to add:  Wendy, I like the thread title.  I would have posted about it this morning, but I was in too much of a tizzy (pouting).

Good evening ladies.  I think the fog has finally cleared from my head.  I'm feeling a little bit better.  I think I've figured out a regiment that doesn't knock me out, but helps with the cough.  It's supposed to pour the rain tomorrow, but my head says it's coming tonight.  I posted Mini's labs from yesterday in LW.  I think I posted that already, but I can't remember.  Maybe some of the fog is still hanging around..lol.

We planted onions today.  The doors are open and with the wind, our whole house smells like onions.  Made some marinated baked chicken tonight and thought about you, Betty.  ;D I made a pudding pie with a sugar cookie crust and thought about you more :-*  Got the laundry done today and all the matresses lysoled.  Tomorrow is grocery shopping and #2's ball game (if it doesn't get rained out).  His great-granny is coming to watch him.  He's playing against 2 of his cousins ;)

Drag, I haven't tried the open onion.  My eyes pour when I cut onions to cook.  I'm glad you had a good time on your holiday.

Queen, been thinking about you a lot lately, hun.  How were your appointments?

Everyone else: just because I didn't name you doesn't mean that i don't love you :-*

Evening Ladies----

I went and had the MRI done, I guess the specialist will get the results back in a few days. As for my appointment with the ID doctor, my viral load wasn't back yet but my cd4 count was at 705 which my ID doc thinks could be a mistake since I didn't take my meds for a week. I don't think it is a mistake just from going by my previous counts...in Sept 07 it was 215...by February 08 it was at 401 and now 3 months later it is saying 705. To me, I would think it is accurate. My percentage also went up from 22 to 26 so we decided to do another cd4 and viral load in a month's time to see who is right. He also told me that if I don't get in to see a therapist that he will take me off of Atripla because he still wants me to take the Celexa for the depression I had in January and I have not gone back on it. I explained that I was fine before the depression and am fine now. So, he says that if the therapist says I don't need the Celexa then he will keep me on the Atripla. Next up is the lung specialist on the 12th and I might just have to get another MRI for that though I hope not.

My son keeps relaying messages to me from his gf and I got a letter in the mail from him today. Now he is stressing about being locked up and swears if he gets out of this that he will be good. Sadly, there is no getting out of it due to the seriousness of his crime. I think he is listening to some jailhouse lawyers, I will write him a letter tonight or tomorrow explaining this to him. But he seems to think that I can go to his hearing and wave the custody papers I have and they will reduce it to juvenile. And I am suppose to go down there and lie and say that he was living with me when he was not. I refuse to go down there and lie to the court. I am not sure that I will even go to his hearing to be honest about it. I don't want to see him in chains and my being there I don't feel will make a bit of difference. But I will say all this in the letter I plan to write him. What I am concerned about is that he still didn't get the money order I put in the mail on Friday. I am going to call the jail tomorrow and the post office.

Other than that, nothing happening and still waiting to see if I am going to get this stimulus check. I would comment more but I am a bit tired from being up early.

I had my blood work done today. But I forgot to ask them for an appointment to see the doctor to get the results when they get them next week. I'll have to remember to call them and set one up. Hopefully I wont forget the appointment. I've missed a couple of appointments this year because I forget. Oh well. Eventually I'll find out what my new numbers are and when I do I'll be sure to tell you all.

Hang in there Queen.

Morning all!

Netta - he's taking so long, we'll probably be old and grey by the time he gets around to asking me out or anything! almost feel like doing the asking myself, i'm of the life-is-too-short-to-waste-time school of thought.  u want something - go for it. he seems shy and i dont want to scare him off. so innocent. i can imagine the shock on his face if we ever get to the point where i have to disclose to him :o   wheres the smiley of someone fleeing leaving a huge cloud of dust? :D

Drag - i'm also hoping its not lipo. good luck with work, i also tend to procrastinate, then i sometimes overdo it and my boss yells at me ::). Can u believe he gave me cheque dated 2006 for my salary? after standing for an hour in the bank the teller pointed it out to me. i was so pissed off. i shouldve noticed it myself in the first place.  I jsut realised realised i havent had yeast infection for some years now. honest.  i was having lots of them around the time when i got diagnosed which i why i so strongly suspect that UK guy to have infected me but since then i havent had them. i wonder if theres a connection or if its all in my head 
 
Queen your numbers look good. i hope its not a mistake

Mum - i'm glad u feeling better now

Betty - yes we're terrified. u should see pictures of people who were beaten up by ZANU thugs. whipped all over their backs, limbs broken, buttocks burned. men women and some children who were unfortunate enough to get in the way of a flying boot or something.  my boss has been doing a lot of surgery on some of these guys (making a lot of money by far).  Theres a woman who got an arm broken and both buttocks burned. its sad really. thank goodnesst theres some organisations who are paying for their treatment cos thier bills are totally horrendous. imagine a bill of over $250Bill for surgery only. and this person doesnt work and lives in the rural areas.  The government is just waiting for us to turn violent they're so prepared.  It might be soon. On Monday we got into town paying $70mil, last night on Wednesday we paid $100mil.  Bread is going up tomorrow to $160mil.  thats about $16US. We just pay quietly or complain quietly but we pay. What can we do? starve or pay.  >:(

Snow - u're right, they'd be in a black hole somewhere with the necklace, its crazy.

i found some cotton underwear but the shop was closed, they were going for $320mil.  Went to Truworths, they only had g-strings going for $2billion. As if.  ::)

I last had my labs done in January.  i probably should get new ones done now that 3 months are up. fortuatnely for me i can just write out the request form and the results will be delivered to our rooms in about 2/3 days. i'll only go to the doctor if my boss says i need to go though.  i'm still afraid of going to gt the blood drawn here in our building coz i work here and they would know my status and all. But it would be so convenient, the lab is just a few metres away. can even get them the same day if we mark the request urgent  :-\

Hi Ladies,

Great #s Queen and hope they're not a mistake, I don't see why they should be. I'm sorry about your son, is there maybe a free legal consultancy service available in your area, or some kind of hotline/website (I know it would be easier for you online or face to face than by phone)? It's hard to know if he knows anything that would really help, it might end up doing him more damage than good, lying that is. I understand why you wouldn't want to be there. My heart goes out to you.

Tendai, let's hope he wouldn't run away - from my very limited experience, not just with the BF but with friends, it's actually the jaded "experienced" ones who judge and disappear, b/c they've got dirty minds and judge you to have been really nasty - whatever than means (of course that's a generalization). The inoccent ones, they'll be the ones to sit and listen, and not make assumptions. With the HIV rates in Zim, I doubt he is completely unaffected by the disease, he must know plenty of people who have it, as you do even if you weren't poz.

Mom it your family sound like "little house on the prairie" to me, you guys do everything yourselves. Planting onions!

Snow I can sense your relief, it must be such a menace to have someone like your ex around, hope he stays locked up a looooong time.

Netta it sounds like there are two parallel systems of law enforcement and justice systems in America... nuff said. Good on your sis for standing up for her rights!!

Betty good luck with the PAP and all. I hate it!! actually back home my male doctor didn't do it too badly, OK it was never fun, but when I came here, the women do it really painfully. My British friend has had the same experience. You'd think that a woman would be more gentle than a man with your most tender bits, not necessarily...

Wow the week is almost gone (admittedly it started Tue) and I managed to do extremely little... if my bosses only knew, they'd kick me to the curb. It's like the more I have to do the less I do.

Be back later ladies, give us a shout those of you who are quiet, I feel like there's an echo in here  ;)

Morning ladies,

Mum, the chicken and pie sound so good.  I had a frozen dinner yesterday.  I don't cook hardly ever since it's just me.  I'm glad you're feeling some better.

Queen, it sounds like you had quite a day.  I'm assuming the doctor would take you off the Atripla because of the depression factor of the Sustiva.  Has the appointment with the therapist come through yet?  You just keep hanging in there.  About your son, well, you have to do what you feel is right.  I personally wouldn't lie to the court. If they ever found out different, I wouldn't want them coming after you.  It's hard to see one's child in chains.  That's how my daughter was when she was in trouble years ago-shackles and cuffs.  It was heart-breaking.  Good luck tracking down that money order.  I think it might take a few days to get the money on someone's books.  But it's worth checking out.

Tendai, it's too bad weapons can't get into the hands of the citizens over there.  I mean, I'm not really one for rioting etc., but desperate times and all that.  Now, what's going on with this new love interest? ;)  

I think I already posted about what I'm going to do today.  The doctor and the ASO.  But that's not until this afternoon.  Until then, I'll probably do some reading.  I talked to a guy last night who lives in Baltimore.  He contacted me on pozpersonals.  He's like 45 and Italian.  He told me that a couple of his grandfather's relatives had been shot by the mob.  Of course, who knows if that's true.  But, talking to him was alright.  He's into politics (liberal) and seemed to know what he was talking about.  Of course, one never knows about people one connects with on the intawebz.  But, I don't mind talking to people on the phone.  Of course, he never knows about me either. ::)  

Other than the doc's and ASO, nothing else going on.  I hope you ladies have a good morning.  I'll be back a little later.

Edited: Drag, you posted when I did.  I hope you have a good weekend!  Anything exciting planned?

Good morning Ladies. Getting ready for a double shift but thought I would check in.                                           Good luck with your doctor appointments, Betty. Also good luck with the Italian man on the personals. I have been contacted by a few recently and am messaging a coupole of them. One lives in Greensboro, which is only 40 miles away. I might meet him for coffe soon.                                       Queen, those #'s sound great. I hope you get good results from the MRI.  I got a letter from my oldest yesterday.  We went through that, I'm gonna be good stage to and your son might really mean it bvut hopefully you can make him understand. Yes, I skipped most of my oldest's court appointment. Hate going to the courthouse and seeing him in cuffs would just  hurt.                                                               Mum, you sound like a great cook. Pudding pie with suger cookie crust, mmmmmm. Yummy. My grandma used to make that just for us kids.                                                                                            Dragonette, Good luck with the lipo.  Don't work too hard ;D                      Win, great thread title. I agree, your son will look better blond.                Snow, glad sb is locked up. I know it's hard on your son but better for both of you. Hang in there                                                      Tendai, if you want him, go for it. There sounds like too little pleasure in your life, grab what you can.                                                 Anybody I left out   , hope you are all well. TTYL, Cristy

Dear All

I have to apologise for making a very distressed post about my daughters relationship with me  - and then disappearing for over a week from here.


I am very sorry I should not have done that, I should have at least let you know I was OK and also that everything that everyone said in response was right and that i appreciated the replies you gave.

Partly I have not been online because the next day I went down with some horrible flu/cold/bug! that even now I am not yet fully over. I do nto think I have felt so ill for years. I do not know if this was due somehow to the HIV or it being a very nasty virus or the fact I was also on my first few days of HIV medication when I caught it. But I did feel awful and weak and spend very little time at my computer anyway

But it was also that I realised that I needed to go and sort a few things out urgently in 'real life' and not jsut offload on forums. I really appreciate the value of forums like this and value this forum very much

But I realised also that in my case and at that time I was using forums as a way of offloading and not sorting out stuff with those concerned - in this case mainly my daughter and to a lesser extent my husband.............


So I just had to go away for a while, stay off forums and the Internet and sort things directly with my family.
I am not saying it is fully sorted, my daughter can and still does have a lot to learn - but then she is only 18-

But I think she understands more now what it is really all about and that she can not, and has no reason to disrespect me as she has been doing and I have my husbands support to step in and help me if and when she does. As before he has just been unassertive, been pleased she always likes him and not helped me at all with her behavior towards me.

Anyway so sorry  I used the forum to offload and then disappeared.

All I can say is I apologise as I know this can upset others on forums - but that I really HAD to do it- I had to not come back until I had sorted soem things face to face

You are all great here - I so hope I did nto upset anyone
I am sorry not to address you all individually - I will try to catch up later

If you give us an address and your size - Why can't we just post you some underwear?
Really, I would so much like to do at least that for you :)

As good cotton underwear costs so little here, less than a pound per item in some places
If you want me to send you some - PM me with an address I can safely send some cotton pants or whatever you need.

It is the least I could do when living in such comfort when some of my sisters with HIV are living in such dire situations

I think you are right about the UN and all us other nations thinking that as you do not take up arms the situation can be left ......this is how it is seen here - but it so obviously needs intervention.
Let me at least send you some pants, a basic and small thing to do  - but it would make me feel better if I could

Hi GFs~

I am running on fumes, but constantly reminding myself to slow down.

Everyone at work loves me except for my mgr and another bitch in my dept.  Both are as moody as hell and I am sick of being nice and getting no response or being stepped on.  Today I realized that no matter how great the benefits, I am not staying there forever.  I just keep doing my great work (yes, I am incredible, lol) and these other two look at me like I have it all.  Grace under pressure, I say, if they only knew how the stress of this job was affecting me.  I put in for a personal day on 5/22, so ha!

Iceman called late yest and asked if I wanted Chinese food for dinner.  He drove over, got us dinner and I actually ASKED for a back rub which I never do.  I was down in storage at work the prior day, unloading boxes of crap and dusting away dry dead spiders from filing cabinets, DOZENS of filing cabinets in a long narrow room, about 10' x 120'.  Yeah, no room to wiggle in that place.  So anyway my back was hurting and Ice rubbed me down last night.  We had a great evening together just RELAXING.  Ahhhhh.  He knows I am spent with the commute and the work and now the bitches whose moods change like the wind.  I just keep saying HI and smiling at everyone at work.  I think that's what pisses them off.  Fuck them.  I can't help it if they were born stupid.  I have started ignoring one of them, its so much nicer when I pretend she just isn't there.

OK, I am done venting, but I can't believe how Jr High it is at work with these people.  Frikkin dumbass redneck bitches.  If I only spoke my mind, oh Lordy I'd be fired, lol.

Yes, I am still wobbling and feel unsteady, but I have cut out caffeinated sodas and have started popping Xanax.  I go see my Primary on my personal day to ask about SSRIs.  I don't know what else to do.

I'll be around this weekend, more then.  :D

Love you, GFs.

~ Cindy

Ladies,

Cristy, good luck working that double.  Are you feeling better?

Wish, it sounds like you had a blast at the wedding and amusement park.  Good for you!

Veritee, it's alright that you had to get away and take some time for you and the situations there.  They sound like they are working out a little.  Good luck.

Cin, I don't really know what to tell you about your work.  I don't know of any job where everyone will like you.  I suppose you just have to weigh the bad against the good.

I went to the doctor's today.  He said what I have (down below) might be an irritation, but he did a herpes smear.(!)  I really hope that's negative.  But if it's not, oh well.  I didn't insist on using condoms with the last guy I was screwing.  I know condoms aren't 100% safe against herpes, but I should really practice what I preach there.  It's probably nothing (here's hoping, anyway).   

Then I went to my ASO and filled out the necessary paperwork for me to start volunteering, which I will do next week.  I'll be there Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1-5 answering phones.  That will at least give me something to do with my time.  I also talked to my case manager and signed the paperwork that I do every 3-4 months (releases of information for the doc, food stamps etc.).

Other than that, I've just been moping around.  Sunday is mother's day and this wil be the first one without my mother.  I miss her terribly. I still want to call her when something happens and tell her about it.  I suppose I can talk to her, but it's not the same.  I wish she was still here.

Nothing else to report.  Have a good one ladies.

Hello all! It sounds like everyone had an ok day. My partner teacher and I took the kids to the public library to get books for their state reports. The library is only about a mile down the street so it is a nice walk. We go there every year because the library at school does not have enough reference books for all the 5th graders. I always wonder what the people driving by in their cars think when the see 63 students walking down the sidewalk...LOL! Well it was nice exercise and the kids were able to get a lot of books. We are working on a Mother's Day gift, needle point key chain, and I am worried we won't get it done in time. I guess we will be "sewing" all day tomorrow!

Yesterday I got a call from my mother, who is out of town, and she told me that my dad called her and told about a dog coming into the house. The little doggie came in the house and jumped on the couch with my dad and sat in his lap. Well I went over to take a look and see if I could find the owner. He was sooooo cute! I wanted to take him home! I walked to couple of houses that I thought he might live at and then ended up taking him to my vet. He had a chip in him and that gave the information of the owner. Turns out he belonged to my dad's neighbor. They didn't even know he got out! I was kind of shocked. I am an absolute dog lover and I would definitely know if my dog was missing. I told them they need to put a collar on him so he doesn't get taken and need to make sure he doesn't get out again. Anyways...my sister called me today and told me that they brought a pie over to thank me...YUMMY!

Well, that's all I've got. Tomorrow is FRIDAY...gotta find somewhere to go.... :)

Hi Veritee - long time no hear.  i'm glad u're sorting things out with your family.  i for one am not offended that u took time off to do real life. u got to do what u got to do. thanks for the update.  and thanks for the offer to send underwear. unfortunately for some reason parcels take forever to get here just ask Snow, i still havent received the necklace and its almost 2 months since she sent it. I dont know where the problem lies, at the border  or the delivery people or what, but thank you, its really sweet of you :-*

Ooh Betty i do hope its not herpes. if its anything like shingles oh my gosh. hopefully its just a mild infection that can be treated easily.

Viv - im just picturing you with a crowd of children walking in the street. i bet u look like u're holding a demonstration or something.   :D

Hie Cindy - just ignore those bitches, u certailnly dont need their negative energy. U're so lucky u have Iceman to be rubbing your back and all.  U hold on tight to that man. i hope you feel better soon with all the wobbling

ShyGuy just paid me another visit. sold me some sweets. asked me what i was doing over the weekend i said i dont have plans. he said ' so why dont u take me out?'.  almost invited himself to my place. cant do that no way. i'd rather go catch a movie or something. anyway i gave him my number and i'll wait for his call but he's not coming to my place no way. maybe he's not as innocent as he seems.....

Morning ladies,

Viv, good luck with the Mother's Day presents.  This is the first mother's day my mum has been gone (she passed away last August).  I miss her terribly.  People tell me I can still "talk" to her.  But it's not the same. 

Tendai, so, are you going to go out with Shyguy this weekend?  I think you should and if you do, good luck.  I don't blame you for not wanting to invite him back to your place, especially when you don't really know him.  Some guys turn out to only have one thing on their minds.

The only thing I have to do today is get bloodwork done.  I'm in a particularly foul mood and I don't know why.  I got 7 hours sleep, so that can't be it.  I can't come up with a reason other than the usual (sick of being broke, I'm never successful at quitting smoking etc.).  I did exercise a little yesterday-this abdominal routine and today I'm in pain.  So, I either have to exercise more often or just forget about it. 

Some good news, though.  I have lost four lbs.  The nurse informed me yesterday when I was at the doctor's.  I don't know how I managed to do that.  It's not like I've been on a diet.  But hey, I'll take it where I can get it.  So, that made me happy.  I'm not going to worry about possibly having herpes.  The doctor told me "condoms are really a good thing."  I looked at him and said "I know, I tell people that all the time.  But with herpes, condoms aren't 100% effective."  Then he went into some long drawn-out thing about the skin shedding during sex and one being able to become infected that way (at least, that's what I remember, who knows).  I just looked at him and said "I know. If I have it, I know it's my own fault for not insisting condoms be used."  He just smiled and patted me on the back.  His office should also be scheduling me for a mammogram.  Last year I had to have a needle biopsy done on a lump I had in my right breast, so it's time to get another mammo done. 

You ladies have a good morning.  I'll be back later, hopefully in a better mood.

Keeping it short and sweet today. I don't know what's wrong with me but I am sick as a dog. I had a terrible headache yesterday that was so bad I was in tears. I couldn't keep anything down including my meds. I don't know where this came from because I was fine most of yesterday. I had an appointment for a ultrasound this morning but I didn't go so I have to reschedule it, well I called and left a message. I am suppose to get my tb shot read today but it doesn't look like that is going to happen either.

I am pissed because today is the day I am suppose to get my stimulus check according to their freaking schedule and nothing is there nor have I gotten a letter saying I wasn't going to get it.So I am wondering what the hell is going on with that but then again, not surprised because life seems to take a shit on me whenever possible. I can relate to not being in a good mood, Betty.

I'll be back later. >:(

Hi Gf's....

Queen: As soon as u stop looking for it , it will come (stimulus chk)..i want mine to surprise me in the mail..i  know when im to expect it but i aint lookin for it cus ill just get disappointed...and im broke so i should be looking for something but...whats the saying..a watched pot never bolis or wateva...Maybe youre nerves got u sick and with all the stuff youre dealing with, i wouldnt be surprised...you need a vacation gf!

Betty: Hopefully its not HPV , but shit cant be no worse than what we already have...i have been tested 2x for that cus for one it was rumored that baby daddy had it..and 2 i used to get a painful pimple that took days to go away and was always on the same side...but each time it was swabbed it was negative..i still thought i had tho...but  just has my gyn pointed out..the pimple always came around that time of the month so it was related to that...but it used to burn like the dickens!

Viv: Any suggestions on keeping a 14 yr old interested in learning????...Im having the hardest time with my teen..she is so unmotivated....you would think i was an absent parent or something the way she behaves in school....

Tendai: did u aske him why dont HE take YOU out instead...??he musta bumped his head..lol

Good to hear from you Veritee...hope all is well...

Hey Drag: hows it hanging GF?? (do people still say that..lol)

i can relate to the funky moods as well....nothing really significant but im a lil pissed that bd hasnt contacted the kids..does he think he is hurting me??..only thing he is doing to me is making me mad and more ready to send them damn letters off..im tryin to hold off..then that idiot gonna send me 200 when he was sending 450..i guess to make me even more pissed but im not going to say anything yet...im still waiting..i am goin to see if he contacts me with regards to getting the kids for the summer...if he doesnt..then no mercy is goin to be my middle name.....

Besides that everything is all good..BF got visitations for his son so his retarded ass baby mom cant hold that against him any more..Im happy for him about that..he was stressed out and in turn stressin me out when im already goin thru my own baby daddy issues...now he gets him every monday and thurs night and every other weekend from friday to sunday...NOw the lil man can get to know me as well..and stop lookin at me with them crazy eyes..(like his daddy)..lol

hi ladies

swamped so keep it short, try anyway.

hey Wish, u always bring a smile to my face with your lively posts. the BD is one screwed up bastard. i dont get, i just dont gt men like that. why would he want to hurt his own kids? i guess if he is capable of hitting a 3 year old, there's not much in his favor, not to mention what he did for you. crazy... and scary to think someone like that could be in law enforecement.

tax is a huge mess here too, I have my debts and some returns I filed for, both completely lost in the system. I havent even paid my 2007 taxes yet. at least you guys know where you're at with those lists, you can know if things are late.

Queen with all the pressure lately no wonder you're having a headache. Hope it ends soon, try some towels dipped in cold water on your forehead 9couple with strong painkillers of course...).
 Betty I hope it isn't herpes, I have never had it, only yeast infections which are not an STD per se but do tend to appear after some action, so maybe (hopefully) that's all youre dealing with. wouldnt that other person notify you if he was poz for herpes?
Viv, if you can control 30-something kids, your own would be a breeze. I was teaching once too, but the most I had to deal with were 25 of them. I didn't speak much of their language though - it was in Japan. I taught them English, or something. The kids over there are very well behaved, I dont think the teacher not knowing the language would work anywhere else.
Moon, not long ago I was totally resentful of people i work wtih, feeling used and bitter. That changed at some point... I remeber that time, I was just looking at the woman whom I hated (also named the Bitch) the most while she was giving a presentation made up mostly of my ideas that she and my boss have stolen while I was sweating blood trying to do the work and writing in my notebook everything I had against her, every name, every rant (luckily, not in a language she can read, but she wouldn't get her hands on that notebook anyway). At some point during her talk, everything shifted for me, I saw her as she really was, a weak, obsessivly driven, haunted person who will never relax and never be satisfied - otherwise why steal people's ideas. I saw how her whole prestige was based on manipulation, and how insecure and defensive she was. All the hate and anger left my body, I still resent when she asks something of me but I just play the game, smile, look cooperative and let it slide off me like water off a duck's back... it's really changed my perspective, cos I used to lie awake gritting my teeth about those people, but I havent done that in a long while and hope I won't.

Tendai, it's the weekend already, somehow Friday flew past. Too bad I didn't get to with you a nice weekend, hope it will be a peaceful hassle free one at least.

Veritee, glad you got things somewhat sorted with the daughter. One foot after another...

Cristy hope the double shift was bearable. Is that like 12 hours?!

I am just going to enjoy the weather here, maybe cycle to a nearby lake, its a long weekend again but I'll work as well cos am way behind, but there are DVDs and books lined up too.

Hugs to anyone I missed this time, have a great weekend. Thanks for being there, love ya

Not so short in the end...

It's more than a headache, I was barfing most of he night too. I had to wake up my roomie for an IB 800 to knock out the headache. I called my clinic nurse and she said I prolly picked up a bug but from where? I haven't been anywhere but to freaking doctors appointments. I feel tired and frustrated but what else is new. Wish, I have been saying for a long time I need a vacation but I guess no one believes me or that I'm just talking shit. I am still not in the best of moods and did I mention that the postal money order I sent my son has now ended up lost somewhere. Yeah, I called the jail and the post office. The jail said they never got it and the post office says I have to wait 60 days to see if it comes back to me and that they can't track it cause I didn't put insurance on it, WTF!!!! So, someone has my money order and it pisses me off to no ends because I actually scraped to come up with the money to send my son. My thoughts are either someone at the jail or the post office has it because they are the only ones who could cash it in. So add that tidbit to my list of frustrations that is just pushing me a little bit further to the edge.

All this stuff has me to the point that I am not saying much to anyone, not blogging or anything. I hate to consider myself as whining but what the fuck. I feel like if it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all. So if you don't see me post much after this then you know why. I just want to crawl in a hole and disappear. And everytime I think about it all, it just brings me to tears. I guess it's bye for now. I'll be lurking but not saying much because I feel I am out of words.

Well ladies,

I'm still in a bitchy mood.  I just want to verbally and physically abuse some poor bastard.  

Queen, I agree that it might be your nerves with everything you've got going on.  If it gets too bad, I would call your doctor and see maybe if you could get something for your nerves.  You are dealing with so, so much right now.  I didn't get my stimulus payment either, there's no record of it on the IRS's website, and when I called them (IRS) I couldn't get through (too many calls).  Which I figured.  I'm sure they're swamped with calls, and probably will be for awhile.  It's just so damn frustrating.  

Wish, I agree-"no mercy."  BD isn't stepping up to the plate at all.  Too bad he's not here, or I'd kick his ass for you.   My doctor said it didn't look like HPV, so that's why he screened for herpes.  I'm glad your bf got visitation again.  

Drag, no the person wouldn't have told me if he has herpes.  He's a spineless cunt, pure and simple.   If you do cycle to the lake, have a good time, and relax.  

When I went to my doctor's yesterday, there was a 4-year resident there who was doing the exams and ordering the labs.  So, when I went to get my labs today, she wasn't in their system.  Then, she ordered one of the tests wrong.  It's for the viral load.  Anyway, next to the order, she wrote "ultrasound" instead of "ultrasensitive."  So they couldn't figure that out.  I told them it was for the viral load (god, I hope they got it right).  Then the lab tech couldn't figure out how many and which color vials to use for the blood.  So, from the time I went into the registration room until I left it was over an hour.  Needless to say, I was livid.  But, I just kept smiling and saying "it's alright."  I did, however, send an informative e-mail to my doctor.   I would hate for someone else getting their labs drawn to go through that.  Of course, it might not bother someone else.  I just woke up in a shitty mood and that didn't help.

I'm definitely going to take a nap today.  Maybe that'll take some of the anger away.  The guy I was seeing (and ended it with) sent me a pm this morning.  He said he wanted to call me last night but "was in an extremely depressed mood."  Well, boo hoo fuckin' hoo.  He said he wants to call me soon "to hear my voice."  Well, if he does, I feel sorry for him is all I can say.  I don't know when the test for the herpes will come back, but if that's what it is, I will beat him with a bat (not really, I just want to).  I don't have time for people who have problems but won't do anything about them but whine.  Especially when their life is good compared to so many people I know.   Oh well, I guess I just have to let it go.  I should have insisted on condoms, so that's my fault.  I know that.  If he does have herpes, he wasn't having an outbreak when we screwed.   He's just very annoying.  

OK ladies, I've ranted long enough.  Anyone else?

Queen, I just see you posted the same time I tried.  I don't think you're whining at all.  You have every reason to bitch.  I hope something happens with the money order.  It's always something else, isn't it.  I'm thinking about you.

Just back from Mini's PID appointment.  Her appointment was at 9am, we got there about 8:50am.  We got in a room at 9:15am, ok, not that bad.  A medical student FINALLY came in just after 10am.  He asked all his mundane questions which I let Mini answer for herself.  After a couple minutes of back and forth, she let out a very loud and exaggerated sigh and said, "Will you go get Dr. Moffett, you're boring."  I had to cross my legs before I peed on myself!  He gave me a desperate look like he wasn't sure what to do next.  I just shrugged my shoulders.  If he's going to work in peds, he'd better get used to working WITH peds.  He asked a few more questions, which were answered with long, hefty sighs and rolling eyes.  I tried hard not to laugh.  He listened to her heart, looked in her nose, her ears, her eyes, her lungs, yadda yadda... He told Mini that he was going to get Doc, she never looked up from drawing and said, "It's about time."

Doc didn't come in until close to 11am.  She didn't have both feet in the door before Mini let her have it about that "boring boy" in the white jacket and why he needed to keep asking her the same questions over and over.  Then, if Doc asked her any of those questions, Mini would just tip her thumb and say, "ask him."  I know as a good mum who is trying to raise her children to respect her elders, I should've put a stop to it, but, honestly, I was feeling the same way and, at least, it sounded much more innocent coming from a 7yr old.

10 minutes later, with a suggestion for a Hep-A shot, an appointment scheduled for September, and a lab sheet, we were walking out the door.  Maybe I should start charging THEM rent - an inconveinance fee.  70 miles later, we're home. WHEW!

Drag: we try to do what we can ourselves because it's just too danged expensive to pay someone else to do it for us.  For some very odd reason, our kids will eat veggies that they plant that they won't eat if we buy them from the store.  They're odd, but whatever gets their veggies in them.

So far, nothing happening here.  The girls and I are going to a mother's day luncheon tomorrow at our church, then off to another baseball game.  For mother's day, oscar and the boys are BBQ-ing steaks and boneless/skinless chicken.  My parents will come over for the afternoon. We have dance practise everyday next week, and our final concert is next Saturday at 6:30.  I'll take some pictures of mini and our #4 and post them.  They are so cute!

Much love to all of you!
Mum

I am soo pissed right NOW!!!!  this guy we are going to call him "Thad" became my friend especially when he found out I help run an up and coming media company here in Columbus. We talked about possibly doing a project for him and what he wanted and such. I let him know that the board would need to conversed on it and we would get back to him. Well I got sick i just got my voice back this week!! and My partners had family emergencies I let him know the status of the decision and he would begin to rush me and then basically sent me a scathing email and we hadn't even signed a contract with him. In the email he sent to me he said that I run my personal life reflects how I do business and from what he sees i do nothing but procrastinate and give excuses!! and he is a get it done type of guy who needs a get it done type of team and If he is wrong  about my character I can show him by breaking procedure and  and give him the producers number! I sent him back an email letting him know that I would have a decision by today. So he calls and berates me!! And I had to let him know that my partners decided not to do business with him after seeing the email he sent me in the first place. Thad now decides that he is now going to continues to insult me and the company as a whole because he did not get his way!!!
I am soo Livid right now!!

Queen, I must admit I shed a little tear reading your post. WTF about the money order, I have done them before quite a few times to dodgy places, via the post office using western union, they always told me if it doesnt get picked up within a week I can retrieve it. WTF do they mean, "lost"? either it gets picked up or it isnt. Hang in there Queen, sometimes you just gotta duck and wait. It is just painful for you lately what can I say(((Queen)))

Betty, kudos to you patience at the unit. I have done my fair share of complaining at mine, you've every right to. About herpes I am not 100% sure but I think it can still be trasmitted also with a condom. And I think if its not active, it cant be, but am not sure. Its not as preventable as HIV, I think. He reminds me of the poz guy I shagged before my BF, he was in denial about his sexual activities, when I found out I had a fit too... also he was in perfect health, money, etc but didn't really stop fretting (I know I mentioned someone like that before but those were 2 different guys, one with whom I had sex the other was just an aquiantance). But anyway after a while I calmed down and forgiven him, at the end of the day he didnt pass me anything but he very well could have, even though I begged him to be honest because I had aboout 90 T cells and I was scared of HPV and herpes. I forgave him cos I realized that he was weak and unhappy... I hope your weekend turns out ok. that's hard when you're itching - but anyway.

TreDai, didn't fully get it, but is it worth it (yeah I'd be furious as hell though if someone said that about me, i did get what the idiot said, I am not very calm & collected though I'd like to be).

well I am off to have late dinner, like 27years, wishing for some peacfullness for all...

Ladies,

Well, I'm a bit calmer.

Mum, hee.  I had to chuckle when I read Mini's responses to the medical student.  Gotta love kids.

TreDai, I would be furious as well.  He had no right to send you that e-mail, then to call you and act like a jackass.  I would blacklist him, if that's possible.

27years, I hope you have as good a weekend as you can.

Drag, the doctor told me that skin that flakes off during sex can pass herpes, even if there's not an outbreak.  So, no, condoms are not 100% effective.  At the lab, well, it wasn't really their fault. I did send my doctor an informative e-mail, however, about the medical student's fuck-ups.

My bff called me about 3:00 and was in a bitchy mood herself, so we had a bitch session for an hour and 1/2.  I really needed to.  She invited me to go with her to one of her co-worker's graduation party tomorrow (the girl got her master's).  So, that'll give me something to do tomorrow.  She also invited me to a cookout at her brother's Sunday.  I told her I'd go, but then I remembered that my grandkids are supposed to come over, so I don't know if I'll be able to.  I had told my bff about how much I miss my mum, so I think she doesn't want me to be alone on Mother's Day.  The pain is all too fresh. 

I'm a bit calmer now.  I still would just love to bitch someone out though.  Maybe some stupid-ass will cross my path.  I need to adopt more of a live and let live attitude I suppose when it comes to other people.   But, when it comes to institutions fucking up, well, that gets on my nerves.  I did get a letter in the mail that my apartment passed the housing inspection.  So, that's some good news I guess.  Still no stimulus payment though, and no information about it.  I know the IRS is getting swamped with calls.  I can only foresee disaster, but maybe I'm being too gloomy.

Anyway, have a good one ladies.

hey ladies

i work up at 5.50, huh?! Its already 7.30, i should be doing something. maybe jog. a friend of mine just tore her achilles tendon playing soccer and the doc told her that after 30 it can just happen like that, so since then I am scared of jogging. a non-HIV related scare  :)

Queen,  I just wanted to say that its really important you keep writing or at least blogging. dont shut yourself off just cos things are rough. let it out, whether here or with your friends. im like a cat and i always retreat to lick my wounds alone, but its not good, its isolating and makes life harder. i hope you feel better with the migraine/virus, there are so many bugs going around here too right now.

Betty glad things are calmer... you made me laugh with the "wish some poor fucker would get in my way" (indirect quote). I am fully distrustful of organizations too.

Mom when I said that you guys are like the Little House I meant it as a compliment. I am sure I could use training in how to save money, even if I am unable to grow my own food (no garden, and if I had one I'd kill off all the veggies like I killed my plants), I should learn to shop cheaper, its amazing how much you can save with a little planning.

I know this doesnt belong in this thread but I feel more confident expressing myself here - I have been thinking about the LTS vs. "normal" poz division. Reading the "how were you told" thread I came to one conclusion. The main difference between LTS and people like me is that no matter how low on Tcells people like me are (with the exception of very extreme cases of advances AIDS), we heard optimistic encouraging words: "you will have a normal lifespan", "you can carry one as normal", "you can have kids" - even if some of us had a very hard time believing them. LTSers have heard (or knew anyway) that they would die. That seam between the terminal and the chronic defintion of the disease is where the difference lies. The level of fear is simply incomparable, in most cases. Any thoughts?

I'm off for my jog - ciao ladies

Drag, hun, I knew you meant it as a compliment.  I was just saying that the reason we plant and stuff isn't necessarliy because we love it, but more because I'm cheap ;D.  I'm sorry if it came acrossed wrong, I NEVER meant for it to sound mean or harsh.   :-*

I just read where the Duggars are going to have baby #18 on New Year's Day.  Now there's a woman who could teach money management.  I read that they live ina 7,000 square-foot house and are totally debt-free.  Must be nice!  All her kids do chores and the parents have NEVER raised their voices?  Ok, not sure I believe that one.  Mom always does seem happy and calm - maybe we should call HER doctor, Betty, and get a prescription for whatever she's on because it must be really good! :P

I got up this morning and colored my hair.  Nothing too dramatic, just a nice warm brown.  It looks really natural and is close to my hair color before I went bald in '91.  My "new" natural color is a mix of dried-mud dull brownish ick and gray. 

Nothing much going on today.  The girls and I will go to the Mother's Day luncheon in a bit.  After, I'll come home and do laundry (YEAH! :-\) Then, I have a couple of closets that need cleaned and the baseboards need dusted.  YIPEE! 

School is officially over for us.  We do work on things during the summer, though.  They have workbooks and reading books that they work on starting the 2nd week of June, so they have a couple of weeks off.  We work mainly on skills that they have had problems with - like math, reading, comprehension, and writing.  They also pick a project that they want to learn like sewing, needle work, wood working, and cooking.  #5 has asked if he can learn to read over the summer, so that's the project he'll work on.  OK, Drag, I'm going to fetch my bonnet and apron...LOL.

Hope all of you are having the very best weekend ever.  For all the mommies, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! Much love to each and every one of you.

Morning Ladies.  Got me a nice cold going on.    I will get through it.     Tre, it's good that your company decided not to do business with that ass. Imagine how hard he would be to work with if you had signed a contract.                                                                                                   Dragonette. A normal double for me is 12 hours. For most people it is 16 hours but I only work parttime .                                                   Betty, Glad you are in a better mood. It might just be irritation but if it is Herpes, he should have told you cause that can be passed even if there is no outbreak. I hope it's not, I'd hate to have to beat a shithead down cause he did you like that.!!!!!.   I am usually feeling violent, I just don't normally act on it.                                                     Queen, that is fucked up about the money order. When I send my oldest anything, I put his Id number on both the envelope and the money order.    I imagine you knew to do that but just in case you didn't try that next time.                                                               Mum, your mini is one in a million. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at that appointment. Gotta go. My own mini is clamoring for his breakfast and to be dressed. Hope everyone has a great day TTYL.   Cristy

Morning ladies,

Drag, yes, I remember being diagnosed in '89, but it was in a treatment center, and they had no doctor in there that could give me all the info or run the necessary tests.  So, when I got out and got into see the doctor that saw the majority of HIV patients in my area, he basically told me that there wasn't any "cure," so to just live out the rest of my days yadda yadda.  I did go to school in '89 and got a degree in executive medical assisting, and even worked for a few years in medical transcription.  The doctor I was seeing for my HIV was actually one of the doctors I transcribed for.  So, I learned a lot just by him dictating on all of his HIV patients.  And it was downright scarey.  I also remember all the "cures" that came out back then.  In particular, I remember books by Louise Hay.  My best friend at the time (who was a woman with AIDS) used to tout those books around and practice everything Ms. Hay suggested.  She (my friend) died a couple years later.  I also remember when my ASO was in a church office (long before case managers etc.) and they used to have people come through every once in awhile with "miracles," most of which consisted of continual colon cleansing etc.  When I went through the bout of wasting and had Hospice, I'm just glad I was seeing a doctor who wouldn't give up (and a mum).  It was a miracle I pulled through that, but all of the LTS's on here have amazing stories.  I don't want to go on and on.  There is a huge difference between then and now, that's for sure.

Mum, school's over, aye?  I'm sure your kiddos will keep you busy all summer.  You know, I really don't know if I have a lot of grey or not, since I bleach my hair every month.  It's been a long, long time since I had my hair natural. 

Cristy, take care of yourself and that cold.  If it gets too bad, see the doctor so it doesn't turn into something nasty.  This isn't a continuation of the cold you had earlier on, is it?

I have nothing exciting planned today other than going to my bff's friend's graduation party.  I'm a bit down about tomorrow (mother's day) and not having my mum.  I know I talked about it before, but it doesn't stop hurting.  I even cried for a bit the other day.  I so wish she was still here.  I guess as we get older, it's a fact of life that we all go through losing our parents. 

Well, nothing else to report right now.  I'll be back later.

Morning Ladies---

I guess it is just too hard for me not to say anything... ;D I am known for trying to have the last word especially when I feel I am right about something though this is not the case here. I am writing because I don't want you guys to be worrying about me. Another night of barfing, this time I woke up around 5:45 this morning, ran to the bathroom just in time. I don't think I have a bug but it is more my nerves with everything going on around me. I don't even look forward to Mother's Day for obvious reasons. Last night I was shaking uncontrollably but I guess that was my nerves too.

I was trying to be quiet and not say anything because all I have been doing lately is bitching and whining. Frankly, I am getting tired of bitching and whining so I know you ladies are tired of hearing it, that's why I have not been saying anything at all and just reading. And I am in a very foul mood.

Still no stimulus check but my gay bf got his yesterday by direct deposit and his last two numbers are 27. So am I to assume that is far as the IRS has gotten? I don't know why they even made a schedule if they are not following it because I have not gotten a letter from them saying I wasn't going to get it. It would've been a nice surprise to wake up and see it in my account.

I have gotten a laugh from you ladies, thanks for that. I just feel like I want to fuck something up. I haven't written anything in my blog because I am at a loss for words right now. I have thought of things to write about but lost the urge to write them I suppose.

Just letting you know I am still around...

I have been reading but not able to post.  I was at my mothers and her computer brings new meaning to slow.

Queen-  I am sorry things have been so ruff for you lately.  Hopefully, it will get better soon when you find out what is going on with you and your son.  I hear you on the getting away, I would invite you hear but it is total chaos in my house right now, and there is nothing to do here  :-\  Unless you like Six Flags New England, that is like 20 minutes away and don't mind a bunch of shorties running around.  I hope your nerves have calmed down.

Keeping- 32 minutes and you will be walking down the aisle.....Here comes the bride....I hope you are having a wonderful day!!!

Betty- I think you will like volunteering, it will be nice to get out of the house and be able to help other people. I was close to my  ex-boyfriend that passed and I believe that they are still with us.  I am sure that your mother is proud of you and what you have been doing with your life, not that it makes it any easier.

cjc- I hope that you feel better.

Mum- Mini is hysterical!!

I am being summoned :)  Drag sorry I didn't get to reply.  Wish- your outfit sounded adorable, you have any pics?

Happy Mothers Day everyone !

Evening ladies,

Queen, I for one am not tired of hearing of what you have to say.  I do my share of bitching.  You're going through an extremely hard time.  We're here for ya, you know that.  I have not received my stimulus check either.  And when I check the IRS website, it says it has no information about it.  WTF is that about?  I hope that doesn't mean I'm not getting one.  This whole thing has me nervous.  I sure would like to get it.  I had it direct deposit also, so what's taking so long?  Unless they got more backlogged than they thought they were going to get.  Like I said before, I will call those fuckers.  I want my damn money!

Snow, I think I'll like volunteering also.  I have to do something other than just sit around.  I can't stand that.  I get edgy. 

Well, I went to my bff's friend's graduation party.  It was alright.  There were chicken fajitas, veggies with dip, and fruit that had a chocolate fountain where you could collect some chocolate to dip the fruit in.  That made it all worthwhile. 

Then we went to an NA (Narcotics Anonymous) meeting tonight.  There was a guy there who had previously been clean, who now has 9 days clean and lost his 5-year old son due to his addiction.  He's living in the big homeless center here.  There was also a young couple there who are desperately trying to stay away from IV drug use.  The girl's arms are all scarred up, and she's waiting for them to heal over.  I remember that well.  Ugh.

Other than that, nothing new.  My grandkids are supposed to come over sometime tomorrow afternoon.  Then I can give my grandson his b.d. present.  I got him a couple coloring books and some crayons.  I hope he likes them.  Have a good night ladies.

hey ladies

Queen I dont consider speaking about problems and letting it out bitching. bitching is something spoilt 16 year olds do when daddy buys them the wrong color car. I don't consider anything that goes on here bitching, how can it be bitching when the problems are so real?

Mom i didnt think you had taken offence but I guess I was aware its not a lifestyle choice for you but a necessity to do everything on your own. still a lot of people would not be as tough and determined. personally i wonder if I had a choice between doing everything myself or being in debt, hungry etc if I would have the stamina to live such an independent, "pioneer" life. Of course 50 years ago it would be completely normal, my dad grew up with chickens in the yard and ice bought in a cart pulled by a horse for the icebox (early fridge)... oh how the world changed...

Betty sounds like a nice party, and today the kids... NA is tough with having to see people relapse, but also a reminder. It's so scary.

Cristy 12 hours waitressing sounds plenty!!! 12 hours at work makes me dizzy and doesnt involve anything physical or any stress asides from my inner one...

Happy Mother's day for all the beautiful mothers here - so many I will not list you - and happy WEDDING DAY (belated) to Keeping.


I have a bit of a sore throat but will go to the lake anyway, its such a nice day.

I have been feeling sentimental, crying a bit, reading about peoples experiences with the first decade of HIV (those who lived to recall it) in my country (isra el - please note the gap, dont want to be searched here, have revealed info that can identify me, learned that trick of dividing a word you dont want to be searched from Snow). There are only about 5 openly out poz people there (outed in the media that is). One of them is a woman. I dont know where these people take the courage. It's a mixture of homesickness, not so much for home but for my culture... and some very obvious truths that were staring at me in the face that I didn't see.

People are incredible, amazingly adaptable and resilient creatures. Thank God.

That includes you ladies most definately

OK I hope I didn't burden anyone with this post, hope you're all having as best a weekend as possible

Hugs,

PS am eating a DURIAN! does anyone know what that is? I bought it frozen and defrosted it, I think BF wants to kick me out of the house. It smells like a fungy sock, but I love it...

Morning ladies,

Drag, I hit the link to that Durian that you provided.  I'm not really sure if I would try it or not.  But, we all have varied tastes.  What are you doing this weekend, btw?

Cristy, happy mother's day to you also.  Good luck on the job today.

Nothing to report here.  I did have a dream last night that I was dating a doctor, though.  It was a nice dream, although there was no sex in it (darn).  Today I'm going to go to church.  Then my grandkids are coming over.  Other than that, I got nothin'.  I hope you ladies have a nice day.  I'll be back later.

Good Morning! Well, I read the post everyday but I don't always have time to post and that makes it hard for me to respond and keep up. I need to get better at that...
I don't remember who asked me about their 14yr old and motivation but that is a hard one. That is a tough age and I am not sure what really motivates teenagers to do what they do. What about the friends? Are they of like mind? I know at this age the rely more on what their peers think and say then there parents.

Queen-I am sorry about all the mess you are dealing with. I know you talked about going to therapy before...have you continued that? I know it has really helped me.
Betty- Herpes huh? That totally sucks! I hope it isn't that. My Mr. Wonderful gave me that gift too. I had no idea he had it. I will tell you this though, the pain of the initial outbreak is soooo bad. My doctor gave me pain medication to deal with it. It lasted for about 2 weeks. Shortly after that I was diagnosed with HIV. I hope that is not what you have.
Mum-Your kids are homeschooled right? How does that work with grades and stuff? Do you just teach according to their level or are they in "grades"?

If there is anyone else I forgot to respond to I am sorry. Today I am going to church with my grandmother and mom. Usually my mom and grandma cook the lunch so today I am providing it. I went to Marie Callendars and bought a family meal and a pie. That way no one has to cook! I hope all you mothers have a great day! My sister got a text from one of her friends that I thought was funny. It is for all the ladies w/out kids..."Congratulations for making it through another year without getting pregnant" Of course my sister is 18 so that is a good thing!

Have a great day ladies!
