Morning ladies,

Cristy, good news about Robert and your labs.  I'm glad what you have is nothing more than a simple cold. 

Drag, sorry you're having another period.  I haven't had one for a couple months since starting the Depo shot.  I really don't understand how a bank could get away with taking money out of people's accounts just for someone having an account.  It makes no sense.  That's why I like credit unions.  Like I told Wendy, I used to belong to a bank, but they were really some bitches.  Truly.  The credit union I belong to has been terrific. I've never applied for a credit card through them, but that's because my credit is a shambles.  The ironic thing about me belonging to the credit union I do is because it's Notre Dame credit union and I despise Notre Dame University.  There's way too much wealth at that school that doesn't get funneled like it should.  They won't give any money to the ASO here, which makes no sense. 

Well, not much to report this morning.  Today I'm going to the ASO for the volunteer thing.  I wonder what's going on with people who don't post here.....Cindy, Wish, Snow (just haven't heard much out of you lately), Camms, Keeping, anyone I'm missing, chime in sometime.  We miss you guys.

Good Morning Ladies!

Cristy- :)
Drag-How was the wedding?
Win-I totally know how you feel. Even though it is a small amount it adds up. Keep an eye on them! ;)
Queen-I hope you get in there soon. Have you tried calling the primary doctor to see when he/she is going to call the specialist?
Veritee- I have tried to use that but I can't find my house. I am not technologically advanced though...
Tendai-Sounds like a lot is going on

Well I am still trying to stay cool. We are getting new roofs and along with that the Home Owner's Association has decided to provide us with a "deal" on new air conditioning units. The ones up now are very old...perfect timing right? Well the "deal" is $1550! That is just for the basic unit. Yeah, like that is going to happen. I am soooo irritated! I am going to have to call the ac guy who fixed last year to come out and do it again. He told me then I am probably going to have to get a new one...add that to the list. I just want him to do what he can to get it work so I can get some relief. Of course this happens right before summer. It has been cooling down a little so that is nice.

Yesterday the kids were really good. We are finishing up state reports so they are working really hard. We also have Open House this Thursday so we are trying to finish everything we can. The kids last day is June 12th and mine is the 13th....can't wait!!!!

Good morning ladies!  I am here and I am alive, barely.  I woke up this morning with one massive crazy headache.  It's cold and rainy and if I don't see sun soon, i'm running away.  I've been on breathing treatments since Sunday - 4x/day - and they help.  I'm still taking zertec, but I've been able to stop all the other stuff since starting the albuterol treatments.  I'm looking into the possibility of some other "stuff" that it could be, so I'm hoping for a nice, full, recovery very soon.

Win: aren't kids great - especially when you can send them home :P  I've got about 14yrs before our youngest is 18.  I've already told my oldest that he can't have kids till at least 10yrs after that (he'll only be 34)...lol..i need some "baby free" years.  I keep reading about everyone's holiday horrors and still can't wrap my head around the fact that Mini's doc actually suggested we stop her meds for the summer. 

Drag: sorry about your ex, your parents cat, and your period.  I know how you feel. 

Cristy: good news about Robert's arm.  You did everything right and he's healing up nicely.  He is a big boy, especially when I compare him to our #6 who is the same age.  She weighed in at 26lbs and 32 inches.  She'll need a nice strong boy to protect her  ;D

Queen: I feel you pain, hun.  I've quit looking.  Maybe one day I'll be suprised...maybe...one day.

Betty, tendai, wish, cindy, and everyone else...much love to you all for a wonderful week.

Mum

My date with the liver specialist in Pittsburgh is scheduled for June 3rd. Now I am trying to figure out how I will get there. I am hoping that I might be able to rent a car for the day or something. I have to do some research on that and see if it is possible.

My case manager and her boss showed up for a home visit today. They sang their praises of me being so proactive with things and what a strong individual I am for the issues I am dealing with..yada yada. I expressed my wanting to move from where I am to someplace else. I updated them on Section 8 which is I am still waiting. Other than that, not much going on here.

Keeping-- I never did get those pics to my email. Resend them again if you like.

Betty-- Hope you are having a good day at your ASO.

Tendai-- Hmm, your Aunt sounds like my sister who depends on a man and puts a man before everyone and anything. But I treat my sister with a long handled spoon anyway.

Cristy--Glad you and your son's appointment went well.

Mum-- I am worried about you. Those doctors don't sound like they know what the hell they are doing. And is trying to suck your purse strings dry. Freaking Quacks.

I need to go grab something to eat. I will check in later with you guys.

Why would they want her to stop meds for the summer? It cant be to give her a sense of normality. For her taking meds should be normal to her.

Is this doctor a HIV specialist?

Hi everyone-
I finally got my stimulus check yesterday, I don't have much left after I pay some bills. I had to pay 69 bucks for the trip  lets graduation gowns.....what a waste, like they are ever going to use those again.  As I was leaving the school late last week with the just the trip  lets, there were 6 or 7 young boys sitting on a bench and they started calling me bitch, white bitch, slut?  At first,I couldn't believe what I was hearing but they were all staring at me while 2 or 3 of them called me names.  I mentioned to one of the teachers upstairs on Friday because her granddaughter goes downstairs too and when I came in yesterday, the head of the daycare wanted to talk to me and get me to write a letter.  I guess, a young boy wouldn't let a mother in the school one day.  What the hell is wrong with these kids?  I hate confrontation anyways but especially having 3 small ones it makes me really nervous that I won't be able to protect everyone.
SB's court date got continued until June 10th, he is going to court tomorrow but in a different town for the same charge.  I was talking to his daughter today and she said his soon to be ex-wifes lawyer is saying he might get two years.
I have been feeling so discombobulated lately, I have been tired and moody and tired some more.  I am not sure what it is from?
Mum- I don't understand them wanting her to take a drug holiday either?  What was thier reasoning?

cjc- I am glad Roberts infection is clearing up. Your counts are great!

Queen- What the hell does your case manager do?  She should be driving you to your appt, that is what happens around here if someone needs a ride or assistance.

Viv- Over 1500 for an air conditioner, good googly moogly, hope that thing has a warranty for like 25 years and includes all repairs.

Betty- I have been around just feeling blah and missing a lot of what people say unless someone else mentions it.  How are you doing?  I am glad you like volunteering so far.

Veritee- I googles my house too, that is really scary, thier is a people finder thing that if you put in names it will come up with a persons name, age, and relatives....kinda freaky.  How are you feeling?

Tendai , Keeping, Wish, Win, and everyone hugs to you all.

Evening ladies,

Mum, the doctor wants Mini to go on a drug holiday?!  That's crazy.  I wouldn't do it.  I didn't have good results when I took one for three months.  My CD4s went from 600 down to 300 and my viral load went from undetectable to 314,000.  I've never heard of a doctor actually recommending one; not since all the new studies have come out against it.    I hope you get to feeling better.

Viv, that's a deal, aye?  Yeah, tell them you got a deal to put a shoe up their asses.  I know you're counting down the days.

Queen, did you ask your case manager about getting you to that appointment on the 3rd?  They should help out in some way; that's part of their job.

Snow, I'm sorry you had to hear that kind of language out of such young minds.  That's terrible.  I would have said something also.  No, you won't be able to protect everyone.  But don't worry about that now.  Time takes care of itself in these instances.  I'm sorry you're feeling blah.  Tired and moody?  It's not PMS?  Talk to your doctor if it doesn't improve and don't let him brush it aside.  You might be having some kind of hormonal imbalance.  Really.

The volunteering went well today and I was able to get some food from the ASO's food pantry.  So, I'm set for the rest of the month, food wise.  Nothing unusual happened today. 

This weekend I'm going away for an NA convention.  I paid for it back in March when I got some pell grant money from my school.  It's at a place called Camp Mack.  It's outdoorsy, but they do have indoor plumbing and showers, and we don't sleep in tents.  I would not do that, puh-leeze.  There's indoor sleeping facilities.  But, it's on a lake.  I'm looking forward to that.  I'll probably see some people I haven't seen in a long time.  My bff is going, and a few other ladies I've known for years. 

Nothing else to report this evening.  I hope you ladies are having a good one.

I googled for a people finder out of curiosity and came up with http://www.intelius.com/ I put my name and state and sure enough it listed all my relatives with my last name except my son and it even had my mother on there who has a different last name.

For a small fee they would show anyone with my first and last name all sorts of personal info about me. Fortunately for me the addresses given are not my current one. They have my former step mother listed as a relative. LOL she hasn't been married to my Dad in over 15 years.

Bizarre...



Speaking of punk kids. Seems like there are more of them now than when I was a kid.
Girls are more aggressive too. It surprises me how many kids I've had to remind over the years that I am a mom and they need to watch what they say and not cuss in front of me.

I'd never do that when I was a kid.

No, my case manager did not even suggest driving me there herself and when she did the home visit today, her supervisor was there with her. And she did not suggest it either. Instead my case manager is trying to call my welfare case worker and see if they will dispurse any funds to get me there. I think that is unlikely and the same thing goes for medicare.If my old case manager was still alive, he would've driven me there. Now you see the kind of stuff I have to endure with my current case manager. The only option I see available to me is renting a car to go. I went to the train website too but no trains run early enough to get me there on time. Well, one leaves at 7 am but doesn't get into Pittsburgh til 12 hours later at 7 pm.

With a car rental you need a credit card, I have a pre-paid one but they may not accept it even if I put the money on there for it. I asked a friend if he would let me give him the money and use his card. I am waiting to hear back from him. If he says no then I am pretty much fucked.

And girls are just as aggressive as the boys, 3 girls here all around 11 years old broke another 11 year old girl's hip a few weeks ago. I think the girl got out of the hospital a few days ago. The girls are being charged with assault. Yep, the world we live in is pretty fucked up.

I'll be back later. I am frying some chicken so I got to go keep an eye on it.

Win, yes, Mini's doctor is an HIV-specialist who deals mainly with peds.  Mini is her youngest patient, but she's seeing more and more teenagers.  She suggested back in January when she had the reaction to Viramune that we stop Mini's meds for 3mths and let Mini get a viral load so that we could re-do her genotyping to include the new drugs that have come out since she was diagnosed in 2000.  I was suprised since Doc was so stinkin' against even changing her susteva to viramune.  We really had to push and THAT turned out to be a disaster.  If her labs this time showed a VL or a significantly decreasing t-cell (it dropped, but from 1394 to 1207), then we would have considered it.  But, her labs are WONDERFUL on only a 2-med regiment, so stopping meds is totally off the table.

Docs called in yet another prescription for Bioxin.  It's 500mg / 2x day for 10 days.  The 20 pills cost me over $80 out of pocket.  I'm not sure it will work, but I'll try anything at this point.  And, if it doesn't work, I'm calling the doc and telling them to call in an oral med for a yeast infection.  I have a very sneaking suspicion that what i actually have is a yeat infection in my lungs.  The tests, though, are VERY extensive and expensive.  We just don't have that kind of money.  So, this is my 2nd antibiotic, and I've been on an anti-viral, steroids, and albuterol.  If Bioxin doesn't work, I'll use it to backdoor a prescription for Deflucan. 

I spent most of the day today having a good cry.  I'm so tired of being sick, out of energy, not sleeping, and generally feeling like crap.  I feel silly complaining to you ladies about something so trivial.  And, yes, i feel guilty about letting it get to me.  You ladies conquer bigger beasts than this everyday.  Thinking about your collective strength got me over my funk.  Here's to much better days ahead - for all of us.

Queen: does medicare in your state offer non-emergency medical transportation (nemt) reinbersement?  Here, we also have a medical transportation service specifically for people on medical cards.  It's usually a mini-van with a driver.  We have one here called 5-star medical.  It may be worth calling your local DHHR and asking.  We've had our share of trips to Pittsburgh with Mini.  Both to Pittsuburgh Children's and to Allegheny General.  Make sure that they will take your medical card as payment since you'll be traveling out of state.  Children's took it, but Allegheny wouldn't and we had to pay $500 before we ever saw the doctor. It took them 4mths, and LOTS of phone calls and threats, before they returned the money we didn't use.

Snow, I know what you mean about kids now a days.  It's downright scarey.  I just read in the paper today that child and teen crimes are up in our state - a state that 10yrs ago had towns with NO crimes since recorded history.  Our evening news used to be a joke because all of our "bad" news was imported from other states.  Now we have our own crap and it's insane.

All of you have wonderful Wednesday!

Ohhh I understand now. But I don't see why they want to do a genotype if the meds seem to be working. As a mother I wouldn't want to mess with anything if it wasn't broken.

Your being sick isn't trivial. I know how terrible it is to be sick and not have a clear diagnosis and treatment. If you feel like venting about being sick then by golly you vent. I hope you feel better soon.

Hey ladies,
Things are going well for me this week. Working all week, then have a three day weekend. Lately, I have been confusing myself with what to do with my life. I used to go to grad school for occupational therapy and had to drop out a year ago when things were not going well at school and in life. I had about a year and a half in when I dropped out. 6 months before dropping out was when my lymph nodes started bothering me. At that same time, I started losing focus and concentration and started doing very poorly in school. That lasted until I dropped out in April. My program director thought it was best for me to quit because of my behavior in school. I just wasn't able to pay attention and I had no motivation to try. At that time, I had no idea what I was going through was the disease taking over my body. I just thought it was me and my dislike for ot. But now that I know that that's what I was going through during that time and now I am fighting the disease, I feel like if I went back to school things would be very different. But would that really be the case? Was doing that really the best thing for me? Should I go to nursing school, like I have been thinking? Because I also would love to be a nurse. So now I am over analyzing everything, what I would really want to do, and all that crap. I really only have 6 months of clinicals left if I went back to ot school. I would probably want to take a class or 2 over again if I was able. If I did the nursing thing, I would have to wait another year more than likely. So now I am weighing the pros and cons I guess.
So that's what going on in my head right now.
I wish I would get my stimulus check already. Mine will not come until June 20. I didn't work much last year, so I am only getting 300 bucks, but I will take it.
Hope you all have a good evening

hi ladies,

Snow, OMG. I dont know what I would have done, i'd want to kill the little f***ers, but usually today its the other way, they're waiting to be provoked so they can jump on the adult and even film it on their mobile. The other day three young teenagers tried so scare me when I was on my bike, one pretended go crash into me only to swerve and laugh, I just yelled f*** you, not very mature but I couldnt help it. But the kids here are still quit timid compared to kids in the big cities, the UK, etc. Oh where are the days where you could just tell the prinicpal and he would drag him by the ear and slap him a few times. if any teacher but lays a hand on a kid he is in for a huge lawsuit.

that kind of thing makes you feel so helpless. there's a lot of it everywhere though.

Queen, 12 hours?! I didnt realize it was that far, I thought it was like 2-3 hours. how can they refer you to a hospital 12 hours away? you might as well fly there.

Betty enjoy the camp, sounds like fun. Glad you liked volunteering and about the food.

Mom, I understand Mini is on one of the most toxic drugs there is, Zerit, which pretty much no one takes anymore if they can help it, and I guess with her numbers so good the doc wants to see what other options are available, b/c if she is resistant to something and switches to it, that's when things can get bad. Her CD4s are really so high, and you only need a VL of about 200 to do a resistence test nowadays, which is nothing. i know it's kind of going against the grain of what everyone says, but basically, if you don't understand the logic behind a doctor's idea I'd take it straight to the doctor cos no one can answer your concern better then her, and I am sure you can write her an email or even a letter which would make things more organized in terms of Q&A. Most people here took drug holidays with a CD4 that wasn't high enough, I have heard that if you do it when you are over 1000 and in a supervised way there is no cause for concern.
Hope you feel better soon with your lungs and and all.

Tendai, how is it going? did you hear anything from your brother?

Viv, glad the class is well behaved, what are you planning for the holiday?

I'll check back later, hugs for now.

LOL@Dragonette..No, it takes 12 hours by train, 3 hours by bus and an hour and half if I was to drive. That is why I am considering driving if I can afford to rent a car. I would write more but I just got done blogging and on my way to bed. I will check in later. For now all I will say is that I restarted my ad on Poz Personals and a few other sites. It's all Wishful's fault with that damn, "Where the Poz men at?" thread. I decided to cut my losses and try again. For now I have the pic up that I had for my avy but I will work on taking a better one soon.

I'll chat more later, I am barely keeping my eyes open.

[quote author=minismom link=topic=20903.msg269014#msg269014 date=1211333509

Docs called in yet another prescription for Bioxin.  It's 500mg / 2x day for 10 days.  The 20 pills cost me over $80 out of pocket.  I'm not sure it will work, but I'll try anything at this point.  And, if it doesn't work, I'm calling the doc and telling them to call in an oral med for a yeast infection.  I have a very sneaking suspicion that what i actually have is a yeat infection in my lungs.  The tests, though, are VERY extensive and expensive.  We just don't have that kind of money.  So, this is my 2nd antibiotic, and I've been on an anti-viral, steroids, and albuterol.  If Bioxin doesn't work, I'll use it to backdoor a prescription for Deflucan. 

I spent most of the day today having a good cry.  I'm so tired of being sick, out of energy, not sleeping, and generally feeling like crap.  I feel silly complaining to you ladies about something so trivial.  And, yes, i feel guilty about letting it get to me.  You ladies conquer bigger beasts than this everyday.  Thinking about your collective strength got me over my funk.  Here's to much better days ahead - for all of us.

Pink, good luck with making the decision about school, i missed your post for some reason. I was also sinking slowly with this and getting very strange for a long time but thinking "that's life".

Cristy that's a good definition of children.

I am so tired today, I am nodding off at the computer. grateful to have this job though

hope you all have a good day, it's just about to start over there and 14.00 here & in Zimbabwe - exactly the same time zone

Morning ladies,

Wendy, I'm going to try that site out that you have in one of your posts to see what information they have on me.  I've been on different ones and looked up my 2nd ex's name, and my 1st husband's brother (because I used to have a major crush on him).  

Queen, your case manager sounds lazy.  Their damn job is to transport people to medical appointments who otherwise have no transportation.  I don't understand her not offering a doable solution.  Good luck on the personal sites.  

Mum, what you're going through is a big thing.  Don't think you're bothering us, you're not.  I would be screaming.  I sure hope they give you something that works soon.  I see the doctor's reasoning behind wanting Mini to take a drug holiday, but I still wouldn't mess with what's working.

Drag, how are you doing?

Cristy, how's your cold?

Pink, I decided to go back to school a year and a half ago.  I went because I wanted to have an accomplishable goal.  Good luck deciding what it is you want to do.

Nothing on tap for me today except volunteering this afternoon.  My gay bff is coming by this evening to get the keys to my place.  He'll be taking care of my cat this weekend.  He always does when I go away.  He's such a dear.  

I've had this (very small) grill for almost 3 years someone gave to me.  It's been outside this whole time, so it's seen a couple winters.  I've never used it.  I've never grilled in my life.  I'm thinking this summer I'll fire it up.  I've been given grilling instructions from a couple friends.  I don't want to start a bonfire or burn anything too badly.  But, I've been hearing from some people about them grilling different things and it sounds so good.  It can't be too hard, can it.

You ladies have a good day.  I'll be back later.

Good morning my sweeties!  I am feeling somewhat better today and hopefully I can get stuff done around the house.  Yesterday I was confined to either my bed or my rocking chair and did exactly nothing.  It's sunny outside now, but the clouds are supposed to be rolling in and yet more rain is supposed to fall.  High today is 58 and tomorrow is 60.  After that, though, it's supposed to be getting warmer until Monday we FINALLY hit 80!!!!  The rain is also supposed to stop after tomorrow and give way to beautiful clear blue skies.  I can't wait!

Drag, you want to hear something even more messed up?  The genotyping that was done in 2001 showed that Mini was resistant to Zerit and yet that's the ONLY med that has never changed.  The only drug in that class that she's not resistant to is Viread and her Doc won't switch.  I JUST found out about it a few months ago and have made a ton of noise, but Doc will NOT switch from Zerit to Viread.  Any switching I'd like to do over the summer when the weather is better, she can get out in the sunshine, and there's not much going on so dealing with side effects will be easier.  In the fall, she'll start dance, football, and school.  To me, the side effects would be worse with so much more on her plate.  

But, then, we run into the memory of switching her susteva to viramune.  Other than her nasty reaction, seeing her deal with the side effects was heart-breaking.  She cried all the time, she stopped eating, she slept nearly 24hrs / day.  All she did was sit on the couch or lay in bed and cry.  Making changes of any kind really worries me.  Taking her off meds completely scares me out of my skin.  At this point, the only thing we're considering is switching to Viread.  If it was me, the decisions would be easy.  Having to make them for my child is gut wrenching.

Win and Cristy, thanks for the encouragment.  I'm feeling better this morning.  Hubby has clients so it's just me and the kiddies today.  Our #6 is all cruddy.  She suffers from horrible allergies that actually makes her skin peel off.  She also has a sun allergy, so when she goes outside, we have to keep her in long pants, long sleeves, socks, shoes, hat and gloves.  We get some pretty crazy looks to say the least.

Well, I've put off life for long enought this morning.  I need to eat something so I can take my medicine.  Then, I need to finish my ever-growing mound of laundry before we have to turn into a nudist colony.  Know that each and every one of you holds a very special place in my heart.  Even when I'm not around, you all actively in my thoughts and prayers.  Make today the very best you can.

Mum

Mum- Don't feel bad about venting. If more people would let out their feelings we might be better off. Once you figure out what is making you sick and treat it you will probably feel better. Also, you shouldn't feel that your problems are less than anyone elses. It is all a matter of perspective. You can't compare it to anyone else and you shouldn't. Hang in there!!! Better days are to come...

Well I just could not get to sleep last night. My mind was going a mile a minute. There is SO much to do at school I keep thinking about what I have to get done. There are a couple of kids who are just making me want to scream. I have one who rarely does his homework and comes to school without his backpack so he doesn't have ANYTHING with him. I get so aggrivated. My principal told me just to let it go and not let it get me down. She has called the parents a few times (this is not the first time) and they just are not responsive. The family has had several kids come through the school. Anyways....I keep telling myself to move on.

Have a great day!!! :)

Drag - no word from my brother, im just praying he's ok. u know i'd forgotten  that Nyasha's also in south africa. what time u knock off? im leaving at 4pm which is about an hour from now. the weather was so cold and misty today like we're in UK or something i'm just glad i dont live in a cold climate, i'd never get out of bed! i cant wait to go home..

Tendai, I will leave around 18.00. so there is no contact # for your brother? if you have something send it over and I will try to call him cos I know your phone system is down a lot.

Mom, Viramune has the worst reaction/allergy of all the meds I beleive, it doesnt mean that she can never switch, don't give up...

I swear at times people really get on my last fucking nerve. I have been trying to keep people in the loop about what is going with me and getting to the specialist in Pittsburgh. After reading some of the responses in my thread in LW, I think people really are thinking I am making up excuses which is pissing me off. I don't have to make up excuses, this is my FUCKING life here and with no one really knowing what is going on with my liver why in the hell would I make up excuses anyway. It's not like I am trying to blow off getting to the GODDAMN appointment. I have done the research and none of the normal options work. The bus and train schedule would not get me to my appointment on time but people are acting like that is my fault. Then someone asked why I can't get the money the night before. Honestly, I wanted to go the fuck off on the person but I didn't because I like the person but I am not him...My check for one doesn't come in til the wee hours of the morning and our greyhound station is not open 24 hours. Secondly, I am not made of money like him who can jet set every where like Brazil and troll for men. I mean WHAT THE FUCK!!!!! I do not have anyone who would drive me there or let me use their car to drive myself there. Maybe I should do a grand theft auto and blame it on the fucking video game!!!!! See how far that gets me. And after doing the research the only thing I can see is renting a car, the only problem with that is that you need a credit card. I have a pre-paid credit card and I don't think they accept those. It's not like I am asking anyone to send me money nor have I. I am willing to go into my bill money to pay for the FUCKING car myself. My health is more important to me than my bills. If I am dead the bill collectors can't get paid.

So, I have concluded that I will no longer speak about the trip or how I am going to get there, if I get there. I swear some people are just assholes. Thanks for letting me vent.... >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(

Vent away hun.

Its difficult for some people to see things from your point of view because many have never been in your shoes.
I wish I could find a solution for you. I recall once when my son was a baby the hospital would send a cab to pick me up to get to his appointment. Those where tough times and I was grateful for the help.

Oh boy, looks like everybody has something to vent about lately :)

I wanted to post last night but the dog got sprayed by a skunk and the office stunk to high heaven.

I talked to SB's soon to be ex-wife on the phone.  Good Lord that man has not changed at all.  He never told her about being infected either, she found his pills and asked what they were and he told her he would tell her someday?  I think it was a year or so after they met?   Luckily, she never got infected with HIV but she did get Hep C from him.  He lied to her telling I got tested when I was with my son which in fact I got tested about 5 yrs earlier and I was saying everything I said in court because I still wanted to be with him?  He started abusing her before they got married, threatening her like he used to threaten me with calling her job and her family. The kicker was when she was taking to the district attorney she found out he had gotten charged with statutory rape charges in 03 that she never knew about?  Hopefully if she goes through with the charges he will get 2 years.  The things that she was telling me last night just shows me that he has not changed at all.  I am going to fight tooth and nail to keep my son away from this piece of shit.  I have no trust in the court system and thier psychologist, he obviously played that man like a harp.

Oh and my therapist is leaving so I no longer have someone to talk too :( her commute was too long which I don't blame her for.  I just wish I could meet someone around here to talk too

Mum- Glad you are feeling a little better. I think of you as one of us, you can vent whatever you want, whenever you want.

Queen-You are a grown women, you know how to do you, fuck the people who reply to your post with negativity, that is the last thing you need right now and they obviously don't have a clue.

Betty- LOL- when I first read grill I thought you were talking about gold teeth  ;D  Had myself a good laugh when I realized you were talking about a cooking grill. See how pre-occupied I am :)

Viv- That kid is lucky to have you for a teacher and his parents should be shot.  I am sure you will get everything done.

Drag- WAKE UP, Sleepyhead!!!!!! ;D

Pink- Good luck figuring out what you want to do.  I was thinking of going back to school too but don't have a clue what to do?

Evening ladies,

Queen, fuck those people.  I haven't read your thread yet in LW, but no one has walked in your shoes, as someone said.  It just seems that your case manager would be more proactive in this and get you transportation there. >:(

Mum, I'm glad you're feeling a bit better.  I'm so sorry about your #6's allergies. 

Viv, calm down.  Take one little thing at a time.  And good luck.

Tendai, I'm not sure about your brother's situation; I can only imagine.  I hope you get some kind of word on him soon. 

Snow, I've never heard of someone getting hep C through sex (not heterosexual sex anyway, not sure about gay sex).  Does she shoot up?  I'm just glad you're not with that asshole anymore. 

The volunteering went well.  I came home and was thinking of what to make for supper, and my gay bff came over to pick up my keys.  He's taking care of my kitty this weekend while I'm away.  He took me out to eat; he's so sweet.  He rails on me about my smoking though.  He used to smoke and quit cold turkey years ago.  I'd like to be able to do that, but if/when I quit, I'll be using the patch. 

I just had my yearly re-evaluation with housing (section 8).  My rent went up $20/month, due to my social security going up $20/month.  Unbelievable.  Every little extra, some government agency takes.  It's really unnerving.  I guess they don't take into account the rising cost of living. 

Other than that, no other news to report.  I'm a bit tired and I'm thinking of going to bed early.  You ladies have a good evening.

Edited to add:  that's supposed to be section 8.

hi ladies,

it's a beautiful morning here.

Queen I havent read that thread either, I know you want to bang your head against the wall with frustration. People don't understand what a catch 22 life is sometimes.

Snow, he sounds like a complete creep, he really makes me shudder. The poor woman, poor you,not that I feel sorry for you but I feel sad that you got mixed up with someone like that, people like that are very manipulative and seductive though, the lie and scheme and drag people into their net without a second thought, b/c they are real psychos - absolutely no interest in anyone's feelings. Thank heavens you are not with him anymore.

Viv, sounds like the school's got your back, it's the kid's problem, what can you do you can't change his parents, or maybe you can try to talk to them, but its not your responsibility, you can only try to help but that's all... dont take it on yourself. Breathe... I get overwhelmed like that often too, when everything just becomes too much.

I have to cut this short b/c I need to leave right now, be back later... sleep tight

Knock on wood, but yesterday I only needed 1 breathing treatment.  I've been on 4 /day since Sunday. Too leary to say that I'm fully "better".  My last round of meds cured me for a whopping 3 days before the danged elephant moved back into my chest. I'll be convinced when it's been a couple of weeks.
 I FINALLY finished the mountain of laundry, but it started again last night when everyone had baths.  It never ends.  I need to replace my clothes line, but suddenly no one sells them.  I use the kind that goes up like an umbrella.  I got my last one from Walmart but they don't have them anymore.  Niether does K-mart, Home Depot, or Lowes. 

I have an IEP (individualized educational plan) for #6 this morning at 9.  Even though she won't be registered in school, they still have to provide therapy if she qualifies, we just have to take her.  She had a speech eval last Friday and the meeting is today.  There are only 6 days left of school here, so she won't start until next school year, but at least everything will be in place.  Next year we'll also do an OT eval and add it to her plan.  We just didn't have time before the end of school.  I'll let you know how it goes.

That's about all that's happening.  It's only 7am, so I'm sure something will happen soon :P.

Take care, Friday is almost here!  According to the weather man - SUN IS ON THE WAY!!

Morning ladies,

Mum, I guess we can be thankful for small miracles (regarding your upswing).

I have to go in and sign the new contract for section 8 today.  I think I'm going to ask the lady why housing doesn't consider the rising cost of living and feel that they have to take the raise in social security one gets.  That kind of makes my blood boil.  But I'm glad I don't have to pay full rent, so maybe I should just keep my mouth shut. 

Other than that, my therapist will be over.  I really don't have anything pressing to talk about.  I'm going to try to get him to get his motorcycle out this summer and take me for a ride.  He's got a BMW.  I know, not a Harley, but one really can't say anything bad about a beemer.  I went for a ride on it a few years ago and it's smooth.

Queen, I've been thinking about whether or not your pre-paid credit card would work.  I would think it would.  As long as there's a "Visa" or "Mastercard" logo on it, I don't know why it wouldn't.  But, I'm no expert on this.  As for what that person posted in your thread in LW, I think he was assuming you would have the money in the bank.  Sometimes it's irritating when people just "assume" things, though.

Ladies, have a nice morning.

Hi GFs~

I took a day off from work today.  Things are looking up.  I have a contract to get my roof done, just have to wait until they call and get me on their schedule, sometime in the next two weeks.

I think it was Snow who said some kids were harassing her?  Well I had some "kids" harassing me at the office.  God sure put me in the right place at the right time Tuesday evening.  I walked down the office corridor just in time to hear my name sarcastically thrown into a conversation.  I was a smart-ass and said, "What?"  because, of course, I heard "BB" (as I call her) say my name.  The look on her face was priceless when she turned her head and saw me walk by.  The two women, in their late 40s mind you, snickered as I turned the corner.  I sarcastically snickered back at them over the cubicle wall, making sure they could hear it. 

Then I had a MOMENT.  Scorpio stinger came out and gave me POWER and courage.  I walked back past that cubicle, BB had gone home, but Halfwit, as I have dubbed her (whom I have had probs with for months now) was sitting at her desk.  I took her by surprise, walking past and burned a fucking hole through her with my stare.  She immediately looked away.  I felt bad for being mean but I had had it. 

I immediately walked over to HR girls' office and said I needed to vent.  I shut the door and proceeded to lose my composure as I talked about being taunted all of the time.  I threatened to leave the position that no one else has seemed to be able to stay in, if this shit didn't stop.

So, yesterday BB and Halfwit got called into HR and were reprimanded.  It was great.  All day long I was being my nice self and they had no idea what was coming.  Both of their mgrs were spoken to, one of them is my mgr as well. 

Oh and I got my own cubicle with some quiet and privacy on the other side of the office.   ;D   ;D   ;D   ;D  Bitches.  ;D   ;D   ;D   ;D   I tell you, after Halfwit came out of that HR meeting she was livid.  I acted like nothing had happened, taking the higher road and being friendly.  I am happy in my new space, I am ordering a new chair for my bad back and I will be even more productive, having a private space in which to work, next to some professional, mature nice women. 

Keep the dumb asses over in their area, I say, lol.

Went to my Primary today and yes, he still insists that I am bleeding somewhere, so I am going for another iron level draw as well as a GI consult.  Shit, its prob just an ulcer from stress.  Iceman said he would help drive if I needed an "invasive" procedure done *yikes* down the line.

My mom's best friend's husband is going to pass any day now from prostate cancer that had been in remission but has now spread.  This friends' daughter and I went to elem school together back in the day, and our families have known each other for 30 years.  God bless you, "Clyde."  He's not even 70 yrs old yet.

Cheech got a buzz cut, I mean really a BUZZ cut today, and thinks he is cool.  He is snoring in the hallway.  Maybe I'll post a pic later.

Sorry about everyone's trials and tribulations, but hang in there.  I was SO SCARED to speak up and ask for help, a solution, at work, and already things have turned around.  Tomorrow we get off work at 230 pm cause we're on summer schedule with early leave on Fridays.  Sounds good to me.  I may have a service to go to if the family friend passes, but otherwise I am planning to cook out with Ice on Sunday and Monday.  It will be 39 degrees here tonight but 86 degrees here Monday afternoon.  Oh my white legs!

Kisses to all......

Cindy, I'm SO glad you got things straightened out at work.  It took some real guts..you go girl! *High five and a little dance*

We're finally on an uptrend to warmer weather.  Monday is supposed to be 82, 78 on Sunday.  But, rain is returning by Tuesday.  We certainly shouldn't have a drought with all this rain.  I know our well is full.

My cough is back today and it looks like I'm going to need a breathing treatment right out of the gate.  I got away without 1 yesterday and now I'm paying for it.  The elephant hasn't returned, but my lungs are full and "wet".

I keep forgetting to post this, I thought it was funny.  Last week we were talking about pets that have died.  When he was growing up, our pastor's mom owned an old folk's home.  Their house was next door and they owned a mamoth Airdale that they took over to visit the residence everyday.  The residence loved the dog so much so that when he died, they asked Susan if he could be buried in the gardens of the home. She thought it was a lovely idea. After Charlie (our pastor) dug the hole, the residence gathered to have a make-shift memorial service.

WELL....later that afternoon, they were invaded by a horde of police cars, the local corinor, and the health department.  Susan was served with a warrent to check all records and interview all the residence.  The corinor and health inspector began to exume the dog.  Apparently, someone had called 911 and told the dispatcher that a patient had died and Susan was burying them in the gardens!!  After matching all records, ensuring that all the residence were accounted for, and the corinor reporting that the patient was canine, everyone left...leaving Charlie to bury the dog again.

See, things could always be worse!

Love to you all,
Mum

Morning ladies,

Cindy, I'm so glad you got things straight with those bitches at work.  And let us know how things go with the docs trying to find out where that bleeding is coming from.  Good luck with that.

Mum, that story was hilarious.  I haven't heard something so ridiculous in a long time. 

Well, it seems we're not getting much traffic here lately.  At least not yesterday.  I also wonder how Netta is doing, besides others (Wish, Camms, any other ones I forgot).

Well, this afternoon I'm off for the NA convention.  I'm looking forward to getting away for a couple days.  So, I won't be back again until Sunday night (other than probably this afternoon). 

My bff made me promise that I'd go in on a no-smoking pact with her this weekend.  So, I'll be putting a patch on today after taking my shower and I packed two for this weekend.  This will make the millionth time I've tried to quit.  My therapist was telling me yesterday that his wife quit using acupuncture.  I had to remind him that not everyone has the luxury of being able to afford that.  I remember years ago, when I went through a detox in Grand Rapids, MI, they used acupuncture on the patients.  They would put five pins in each ear.  I didn't do it at first, then a couple people talked me into it.  It was the most relaxed I'd ever been, and I even had a high for a couple hours.  They told us that where the pins were placed represented different places in the body.  On a few of the chronic alcoholics, when they put the pins in the areas of the ear that represented the liver, the pins popped out.  Anyway, my therapist did say, however, that he will be getting his bike out this summer and he would be happy to take me for a ride. 

My ASO will be having massage therapy on the first Wednesday of every month from 11-1.  I know the girl who will be giving the massages.  I was in a "watch dog" Aids organization with her years ago.  I never really did like her.  She was just very creepy.  So, I don't know if I'll be getting one or not.  I don't know if I want her touching me.  That sounds petty, doesn't it.  Well, when it comes to people touching me, I'm pretty picky I guess. 

Ladies, I hope you all have a good weekend.  Be good.  I wouldn't want to come back and find out someone misbehaved (ass-kickin time). ;)

Good Morning!

Cindy- Good for you! I hope things continue to work out well!
Mum- Take care of yourself...I think about you often.
Betty- Enjoy your weekend!
Queen- Any news?

Well you all are talking about good weather this weekend and I think we have gotten all the rain you've been having. At the beginning of the week we were in the 90's and yesterday we had a downpour! It just let loose. There was even a tornado in the inland area. It is supposed to rain all weekend. We are having the strangest weather for the end of May. CRAZY!
Open House was last night and it went really well. The kids made movies on the computer from pictures that we took on our overnight field trip and I had 9 different computers up and running and everything went smoothly. I was so proud of the work they accomplished. The parents were impressed. I also got to see some former students who came back to visit. A lot of them are starting highschool and I just picture them when they were little with me... :) It was a nice evening. Today we are going to the middle school to take a tour. I will get to see most of my former students there so it will be nice. I am so looking forward to the 3 day weekend. I wish the weather would cooperate!
Have a great day everyone!

Viv- That is so cool that you take the kids on a tour of the middle school, what  a good idea.  I wish they did that around here.

Betty- Hope you have lots of fun this weekend.

Tendai- I am glad you were able to hear from your brother and he and your cousins are all well.  How cold does it get there?

Yesterday I took my oldest and one of the trips to the doc.  My oldest had poison ivy and the trip has strep.  This morning I took the other 2 and they have strep too.  When it rains, it pours :(

Hi GFs~

Well, Clyde passed late last night (today) on my brother's birthday.  His wishes were to have a big Margaritaville-type celebration, so my parents and I are heading down to the Chesapeake Bay this weekend.  Clyde's family has a place right on the water.  We've been told to wear our Hawaiian shirts, so it should be a festive celebration of Clyde's life.  He took me to my first concert in 1980.  I was 10 years old and he took his daughter and I to see Bruce Springsteen.  I put my Sirius radio on the Springsteen channel today on the way home and thought of Clyde.   :'(  I feel so bad for his wife and kids.  They are very distraught.

I am doing OK, just solemn, thinking about Clyde and the memories I have of him from my childhood.  Going to group tonight and just relaxing.  Oh, and here's Cheech. He had a "plume" tail before and now it looks like a rat tail.  He was actually chilly last night!

The first pic was last summer when he had long hair, the other pic was taken today.  He's so cute, my BEST buddy!  Have a safe weekend.

~ Cindy  :)

Sorry, I haven't been posting the last few days. This situation with getting to Pittsburgh has me frustrated and then my roomie pissed me off so I left the house for a few days. I got back a few hours ago. I spent a few nights at my bf house. Me and the roomie had a screaming match and I took off. I think this situation is not going to work and I'd be better off living by myself. Fuck, I am not anyone's damn maid and if I am going to be the only one cleaning then I need to be by myself.

I called the car rental and if I were to use my pre-paid card, I would need to produce 2 bills with a zero balance as well as pay a deposit on top of the rental charges. I don't have that kind of money and hoping I will still be able to use someone's cc, if not then it doesn't look like I will be going. My case manager is trying to contact our bus company, not greyhound. They have a program that gets people to doctor appointments locally but has never heard of them driving you out of town. My sister knows more about it so I will have to contact her, she usually has them take her to her appointments.

I am just majorly frustrated and I have been trying to stay away from the house. I need some kind of distraction.

Hi Queen~

I have been keeping up with the thread as best as I can, and I have read about your crappy situation.  I am hoping that SOMETHING comes through and things work in your favor.  Hang in there, GF.

I'm tired so this will be short.
We got started moving Aaron today. Cleared out a few things from my garage too. I'm beat. Its like 95 outside or something. Super hot.
You'd think we could move him all in one day since its a one room apartment but it didnt work out that way. We got most of the work done though. Now its just odds and ends and cleaning up the old place.

Moonlight-sorry to hear about Clyde. He had the right idea of having a celebration like that.
Queen- that stinks about your whole situation. I am sure something will come up eventually to help it out. And I know how it is with roommates. I was forced to move out of my best friend's apt because she had issues. Hope that works out as well.

I went today to talk to the program director of where I went to grad school. I just wanted to know what my options are if I did go back to occupational therapy school. As soon as I started talking with her, I realized what turned me off of occupational therapy so much---that school and the teachers! She pissed me off so much....telling me I need to take initiative and junk about what I want to do with my life. No kidding-that's why I was there-taking initiative to figure out if it's something I could do now that I know what was going on when I was in school the first time. She made it sound like I was there for her to tell me that I should come back to OT school so that I didn't have to make the decision. Not at all. I just needed to see what it would take for me to go back to finish my master's. Apparently, I would have to reapply and start all over with classes. Mind you, I have a year and a half of classes. There is no way I am going to start all over again.
I am sticking with nursing. I think for the most part I wanted to see about going back to finish OT school was because I wanted to finish what I started. And because I am swimming in loans. But those aren't the reasons that I should be doing it. Also because I can't start nursing school for another year, I think that's why. I just want to get something going. I gotta be patient. :)

Cindy: Cheech's haircut makes him look young - oh, that I would be so lucky ;D 
 
Queen: I'm still praying that something will work out for you to get to your appointment.

Betty: I hope you are having the time of your life this weekend!

Ten: Glad you heard from your brother and cousins.  I know that takes a huge burdon off of your heart.

Win: I don't even bother painting my nails anymore.  The polish never stays more than a couple of hours.  I cut them when they are long (past the ends of my fingers) and don't even bother filing them.  I do keep the tootsies trimmed and painted, though.

Snow: Sorry to hear about your babies being sick.  Is there someone who can take care of them while you are at work, or do you have to call off?  It's so close to the end of school, too.  Poor things!  Big hugs to you, too.  Sick babies are hardest on parents, I'm convinced - and 4 at the same time can't be easy on you.

Vyv: Thanks for the thoughts, hun!  Your summer vacation has to be getting close, yes?  Do you have any plans other than staying as far away from children as humanly possible? :P  That's my plans...LOL...but it never happens ;D

Today promises to be a beautiful day!  We're still trying to fix our lawnmower.  We bought the 3rd belt yesterday hoping it's the right one.  Hubby thinks this one will FINALLY fit, but a spring popped off and he can't figure out where its supposed to go.  I'm afraid we'll have to get out there with machetes if it doesn't get fixed soon.  I've already had 1 breathing treatment today and it looks like these meds aren't working.  Or, maybe they aren't working fast enough.  I spent a lot of the day yesterday discouraged and depressed.  I want to BREATHE!

We took the kids to see Prince Caspian yesterday and it was such a great movie.  Much more intense than the 1st one, with battle scenes that reminded me of Lord of the Rings.  But, it was exactly like the book and very well done.  We bought National Treasure 2 yesterday, but haven't watched it yet.  It got mixed reviews, but my anal husband can't stand owning 1 movie in a series without owning ALL of them.  I'll let you know how the movie is. 

On the agenda today, I plan on making a table cloth for our new table.  Well, it's not new, but it's "new" to us and bigger than our old one so that we can all finally fit around a table.  The "new" one will actually seat 10 so that when my parents come over, they can fit, too.  I'm going to dig through my buckets of material and make a "fake" quilt table cloth.  I made 6 pairs of shorts and 4 dresses for the girls the other day and have 1 more pair to make today.  I found the material for $2/yd - I can't buy a pair for less than that.  It takes me about 15 minutes to make them, so It's not "costing" a bunch of time, either.  Ive got a couple loads of laundry to do and still can't find the drying line I want.  I also need to clean out and organize my kitchen cabinets and pantry, but that'll probably get done Monday.

 I'm still not able to do a whole lot at one time.  I get tired too quick and then I just get pissed off.  Hubby and I leave for vacation in 15 days - I do NOT want this crap hanging around until then.  I've had it for 7mths.  It needs to go, or start paying rent.  I'm determined not to let it get me down.  Sounds good, but it's getting harder and harder.

So much love pouring out from my heart to each and every one of you! :-*

You have pretty eyes Queen.

Thank you Cindy

I paint my toes but LOL I am such a klutz I always manage to break a corner off one of the big toes at least. I run into things all the time.


Today was the garage sale day for my street. This street has a bunch of people who like to organise events like block parties and garage sale days. We called the lady who organised it and told her we would participate. We invited a girlfriend over and she brought some of her stuff to sell too.
It was so freaking hot. I went out this morning and bought several different kinds of soda and bottled water and sold them for 75 cents a can for sodas and a dollar for water. I didn't make quite enough in drink sales to pay for all of them but we will drink them anyway so it doesn't matter.
Plus today we watched the baby all day.
We put everything up around one o'clock I guess. It was just too hot. Its about 90 outside but the heat index says it feels like 99.
Me and the baby went in the pool for 15 minutes or so to cool off. I just stripped to my underware and she was naked of course. LOL little booger peed on me. I knew it would happen. You just cant hold a naked baby without getting peed on.
 I am beat. Billy just went to pick up the daddy and take him and the baby home. He is going to stop and buy me some soup or something.
He's so nice to me. I'm glad to have a nice guy.

Thanks for the compliment, Wini. It is appreciated. Nothing has changed with getting to my appointment and at this point I have given up. It doesn't make a difference if I reschedule because it will be the same problem no matter when they schedule the appointment.

I am amazed that some people would consider riding with a complete stranger even if it is someone from Craig's list. There are nuts in this world and I just won't risk it. Plus I remember someone getting a room mate from there and they turned the person's home into a trick house. Uh, yeah, stand up people on Craig's list, uh huh. So, I decided that I am just going to forget about the appointment because the stress behind it is not doing me a bit of good. And if my liver becomes the death of me so be it, I tried. Some may consider what I say as a cop out but I don't think no one can say that without knowing what I deal with.

The situation is starting to make me depressed. For most of today, I have been sleeping and when I am awake I am in tears. I have been trying to keep things to myself because of people's attitude that I am making excuses for everything. It must nice not to have to struggle for anything.

HI Ladies!, good to be back online. I have been under the weather with asthma and had to go to the doctors cause i had no meds for it. I rarely have it, for some reason it is acting up and I use an inhaler.It is very warm here and I had to fight to get an airconditioner in a central airconditioned apartment! I finall got one Tuesday and it seems to be helping.I really missed you all. My cable and internet were cut off when I got home from va.I am just now getting it back on, since I got my stimulus check. I paid some bills but did buy myself a digital camera from wallmart. I have been aching all day . My right knee and leg feels like someone pour scalding water on me when I touch it and my whole bodyaches. I am glad to have internet and cable again,because I am an avid couch potatoe, andwatching tv takes my mind off the aches. I hope all are well and I will write more tomorrow tired now going to bed. luv to all.

Hi Netta~ 

Take some Aleve or Advil, maybe that helps?  From one couch potato to another, you know?  ;)  Have fun with the camera, the pics look superb!  Glad to see you smiling and to hear that the asthma is under control.

"My name is Doreen and I live in Sayreville. I have been poz for 17 yrs. and haven't ever been sick. My husband died March 24th and soon after I had 3 mini strokes. I go to welfare to try to get help and met a woman who needed a place to stay. I told her I was pos and we moved into an apt. together and I find out she is a craigslist hooker."

Just setting the record straight on Dorjus not having found her long former roommate via Craigslist.
