Thanks for you kind thoughts. I agree with you CFS is really not well understood, only diagnosed through exclusion and basically has no treatments. I guess I latched onto it because of the fatigue I have experienced which has been going on for years now and nobody can figure it out. We all have our own struggles, I've sort accepted that this is the way it is, but I never want to give up on making things better.
hi Marie, yes so sorry, I haven't been around much either, work mostly. they are laying off 16,000 - my company will affect the national unemployment rate! well I will keep that in mind, but I just purchased a new car about 12 months ago. thanks for the update. Yes we picked apples and went up to NY for the Pumpkin Blaze, James had a blast. thank you!!! hope you are well take care Marie!
Marie, SGT is the army abbreviation for my son's last name of Sargeant (diff spelling but we will say it is poetic license). Started using the abbreviation after a trucking company in Canada SGT Trucking donated hats to our team. I love the idea of our students doing the big blue test. I will run it past admin, sometimes they are awfully hesitant to do new things but are always anticipating I will ask to do them. How awesome that would be!
Thanks for your thoughts Marie. For some time now I've had high blood results for hematocrit, mcv and mch. I've asked repeatedly why they are out of range, but this is the first time any doctor bothered with it. I've now had a hemoglobin electrophoresis test ordered which can detect certain abnormalities in my blood cells. Those abnormalities, if present, would essentially make my A1c and glucose meter readings useless. Of course I read up on stuff, and this abnormality is associated with CFS and of course I've had long standing issues with fatigue. But I'm not sure I even believe in CFS. So, that's my story and I'm sticking with it.
Good Morning, Marie. It poured all day yesterday and into the night. Every bone in my body ached. I could not sleep so I did things went to bed at 2 slept until 7. BG 106. Waiting for the BUG MAN here in Florda you have them 2 times a year. Got enough stuff to do a Program tomorrow. Speaker canceled. How are things with you? you baking today? What? I hope your Readings are good. Give my best to Ed. You take good care of yourself. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning, Marie. I cannot seem to get myself going this morning. Kinda in a funk. Tom stayed overnight and left at 6 this morning. Got home to a leak in the ceiling in his living room. Called upstairs no leak. The association will send a plumber between 1 and 4. My BG 106. Gorgeous day. I might get $1 in SS Cola but then they might raise Medicare and I will get nothing. Put somewhere Donna having knee replacement Nov 12 needs our prayers. My best to Ed. Is your Mother behaving these days? I hope so. Take good care. My speaker for Wed canceled so I need to whip something up. Take care. HUGS,Reed
Oh Marie I caught the RR interview too. I think he is quite egocentric and that Levon really despised him. Muscle Shoals was extraordinary - a town of 8000 that had 2 recording studios turning out dozens of gold records. They said it was from the magic of the energy of the Tennessee River. They interviewed Gregg Allman and oh mercy, the years have not been kind to him....also described what a risk it was to record Lynryd Skynrd;s "Freebird" because no DJ would give 9 minutes of airtime to a single. Fascinating.
Hello Marie. I had an awful night. Nothing on my mind. I woe at 3 tossed and turned got up at 5 and did the B and W;s. Tom left at 6 to go running. He did 16 miles. He is preparing for a race Nov. 16th. Got him his lumberhack breakfast, He weighs 188 and tall. I have been hearing this funny noise like a dying animal. looked everywhere. A little kid visiting his grandparents and blowing this god awful horn. Going shopping later. Then footfall. I need later to make a meatloaf for dinner. My legs a little rocky today. The sun is out and it is cooler. BG 108. Beaver Toyota new here just gave $100,000 to the schools. Give my best to Ed, Try to have a good day, HUGS,Reed
Hello Marie. I fell asleep reading the paper and I had a good night too. BG110. The clams were elegant. They closed 2 weeks and did the whole place over new tables new chairs new decorations. Clams were $19,95, Tom loved the Haddock. Later that night I brought out the birthday cake with butter creme frosting. It is gorgeous here makes you feel alive. A/C off doors and windows open. We paid over $300 for a holly tree scale got into it and killed it so Tom and Russ will have to dig it out as I have ordered a Butterfly bush with purple flowers. How is Ed? Selling anything? How is the baking going> We finally are getting a Dunkin Doughnuts on the Island. I am doing fine. Trying to keep my mind clear. Do you get the flu shot? They say#4 the best. I see my PCP next week so I will get mine. Take good care. HUGS,Reed
Good Morning to you, Marie. I did not hear from you yesterday so you must have been baking up a storm. BG102. Hope your Readings good. Finally shut the A'/C off it is in the 60's. Today is Tom's 46 birthday. He is on his way. We are going to Bettes. I wanted to take him out Sat night. Guess what he said? I would rather have your meat loaf,I need to gain. I lost 2 yesterday.How is Ed? Give him my best. Another friend will gets word today if he stays or go. I think it is awful. They bring in the young and get rid of good reliable workers. Any plans for today? Take good care. I care. HUGS,POPS
