      hehe, Grats on your new toy, Vader! I don't know how it would be for what you're using it for. But gosh, 17 is even bigger
      I guess it would mostly come down to your vision, preferences, and distance from the screen. The further away, the better for those larger screens. At least for me. If you're using it in a reclined position or sitting at a desk, it might be awkward. If you're standing, it would be better lol. But you MAKE music on apps and stuff right? Synth (?)?
      It might be better to use it as the laptop.
      If you're used to a smaller screen, be prepared for an adjustment period

      Rave: PT put me through the wringer today. It was wonderful They added more strengthening exercises. They're simple things, but boy I still couldn't fully do some of them!!
      The ones they added were "boxes" and "rainbows". You use a resistance band against a wall. For the "boxes", you start out (1/2 an arms length against the wall) with your hands together and the band looped in each hand. Then you bring your arms out, down the wall, then bring them together again; having worked a box-like shape.
      For "rainbows", you work in segments. Same distance from the wall, but your arms at about the 9:00 position. You pull your right arm to 12:00, bring the left up; then move to 2:00. Then you reverse it.
      I was feeling very lightheaded, at the end, because I always forget to breathe

      I'm pretty sure I'll be using my TENS unit tonight!!!
      I'm still having A LOT of muscle spasms during PT. My arm definitely does not like being raised to the side (like when you raise your hand when you have a question), nor being raised in a similar way but at 2:00.

      Rant: I slept like poo last night. I played on my iPad until nearly 6AM rofl. I tried waking up at 9:30 but I told myself to think again Ended up sleeping until 11:30. It was very poor quality sleep though

      Rave: My "cape" is getting a lot of wear this year. I like wearing tank tops and shorts to PT. I just put on long socks and throw on my cape and I'm good to go. It's amazing how warm it keeps me. I get a lot of strange looks but a lot of compliments too.

      **EDIT**
      This is great. Weird, but great. You might enjoy this, Vader https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ph5OW9p-GHM

      Rave: I just watched one of the greatest friggin things ever:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM70TROZQsI
      Which may be a testament of just how sleep deprived I am (especially seeing that I never even saw Shrek )

      Meh: I didn't sleep last night. I just didn't feel like it, truth be told. I finally got my laundry done... but GOOD GOOGALLY what a friggin hassle and a half that was.
      I had to wash the washing machine 4 times before I could wash my clothes in it. My son washed momma dog's blanket and the amount of shed fur is concerning for our septic tank and pipes and longevity of our machine! I did 2 quick washes, finding lots of hair after each. Then I did another and it looked like a felt blanket disintegrated inside the drum So no. I actually did FIVE empty quick washes.
      Never again. I'll have to buy a vacuum or something to clean her blanket beforehand.

      Question: When sharing the Shrek remake to FB, I stumbled over a word I use a lot... but I don't think it's the right one.
      An artist can draw on paper, or create something digitally, act, or write. I call those "creative medians".
      I googled the word before I shared it and it doesn't seem to fit (at first glance?).
      What's the word I actually mean to use?

      for everyone.

      Angry

      RAGE: Today was supposed to be of taxiing, PT, Shopping, Taxiing. I didn't wake up until 5PM yesterday, so I didn't really feel like sleeping last night.

      By 10AM, lol, I HAD to sleep and managed to get in a couple of hours. Then I got up, wasted time for 20 minutes, then took the girls to work. Came home for 20 minutes then went to PT. I began PT in high spirits. I was chatty and felt fine... ASTYM, assisted stretched, 1 pound weight in various ways for some 15 minutes, stretches, curls. Felt fine. I did the pullies for 3 minutes, the band exercises for some 5 minutes. Fine.
      Then I did the "boxes, rainbows, steamboats" against the wall. Then I started to do another very basic wall exercise and NOPE.

      I suddenly felt extremely light-headed, nauseated, chilled yet hot, and my bowels felt loose. Friggin great. It felt JUST like a vasovagal syncope episode. But why the heck? I tried sitting for a couple minutes, but that wasn't happening, so I laid right down on the floor. My therapist brought over a foot stool, which wasn't nearly tall enough, so I could elevate my legs. My eyes welled with tears because I was so flipping embarrassed. But I laughed and smiled at everyone to put them at ease.
      After some 5-10 minutes, I was okay enough to leave.

      I got to the car and it occurred to me that the only thing I ate yesterday was 2 slices of chocolate (5:30PM), a 2 cheese burger with bacon and medium fries (7:30) and 4 hot fries (11:30PM). Perhaps I was just hungry. So I got an Arby's Roast Beef and a large frozen coke... but I didn't take even a single sip until I could check my sugar.... which was completely fine at 94.
      My BP was slightly elevated at 143/98

      I've eaten and have had plenty to drink, but I still feel weak, shaky and fuzzy-brained. Gah!

      Sleep deprivation has never been a trigger before. Is it one now? Or was I just in more physical pain than I was registering (pain is THE #1 trigger for me)? Or, do I truly need to get off my butt and have a stress test or something done? This is unacceptable!

      Unhappy

      Everyone's disappeared on me again

      Rave/Rant: As much as I HATE having to drive the girls, I do enjoy the scenery. I have "eagle eyes" and use my periphery way more than I probably should But because of that, I've seen 3 hawks in the last 2 days.
      Because all the trees are barren of leaves, and because the hawks (that I see, at least lol) like to face traffic, their white bellies give them away.
      I LOVE seeing them. The rant is that there's never anywhere to, safely, pull over so I can take their picture
      Also, yesterday, I saw one of the largest crows ever. It was bouncing around the parking area near where the girls work.

      Rant: I'm still not 100%. I woke, same as yesterday, feeling just fine. In fact, I woke at 8:30AM (I actually managed to conk out little after 1AM). As soon as I started moving around, though, the lightheaded feeling returned.
      I checked my pulse on the drive home, and it was staying below 75. My resting pulse is NEVER that low unless I'm sleeping
      By the time I picked up my frozen coke, I felt shaky and STARVING- like someone punched me right below where my ribs meet (also classic "duodenitis" symptoms I get). So I picked up some BK as well.

      I only ate 1/2 of my large fries. Haven't touched the sandwich yet (3 hours later). I've drank almost the entire 64 ounce frozen coke though I bought another insulated cup just for the occasion (my butt nowadays- big and way too bouncy )

      Just for curiosities sake, I took my sugar a little while ago: 120. I'm going to have to take it tomorrow morning before breakfast. Maybe 90 is too "low" for me? I may even try to give myself a sort of "stress test" tomorrow. I'll walk around normally, then take my pulse and BP... then do heavier exercises and try to trigger the syncope and see how the numbers change.

      All that said... part of me thinks it's just pain. My shoulder just doesn't feel quite right. I tend to acclimate to certain pains in that the severity of it doesn't quite register (boy but how I wish I could choose WHICH pains to "turn off" rofl- like my back!!)
      I see Ortho on the 21st. Don't know if I'll make it that long if this keeps up!!!

      **EDIT**
      Oh yeah...
      RAGE: Some of my webpages are refusing to work. CNN and my Fitbit login. For CNN, I ran my internet diagnostic tool and it says my DNS server may be unavailable and to contact my internet provider (earlier it said http instead of DNS )
      The Fitbit page is just all messed up... sort of like it's all HTML only.
      I ran Malwarebytes and everything was okay... cleared my cookies and history etc, restarted my machine 3 times... updated the router, restarted again. They're still messed up

      My machine *acts* like it has a virus, but none of my programs are finding it if there is one. I'll run Spybot when I leave to get the girls. Hopefully, that will do the trick...

      Rage/Rave: I got suckered into taxi duty again today. Their ride didn't go to work because the powers that be, in our State, decided to run with Trumps idea to make today a Government holiday Schools were closed, so the ride was stuck at home with her son
      BUT... twice, on the way there, I saw 2 more hawks in different places. Only, they were closer to the road and I saw their bellies were actually a reddish brown color
      I could have sworn the others had white bellies. Now I'm going to have to turn to Google

      Rave: I treated myself to a McD's big breakfast with hotcakes. So, so, yummy... but my stomach is going to revolt soon

      I don't think I have the energy to work myself up today... maybe this weekend? I am extra sleepy.

      Rant-ish: My zombie dreams have evolved because of the mechanical game play changes made in 7D2D I need to re-strategize how I survive the game and my dreams will quickly adapt. But it still sucks lol. I loved the way everything was BEFORE But Noooo, The Fun Pimps, had to go and make the zeds smarter and gave them digging and jumping abilities to match an improved tracking AI.
      Bah!


      Meh: I've been googling muscles and anatomy and muscle impingement. That words popped into my head last night, but I'm not sure if it fits or not.
      Make a straight triangle shape from your chest and across your armpit- just to the point your fingers make skin contact. That's the muscle in question, but the area is about 3-4 fingers wide. Would that be the "short bicep"? That's where part of my plate is (but continuing to the shoulder head). It's STILL rock hard. I was told it is NOT the plate itself. So could the plate have, sort of, trapped the muscle? Is it dangerous? Will it work itself out? Will I HAVE to have friggin surgery again to remove the plate?
      The 21st is too far away
      It's not painful. But when I work it, I do have a lot of strange discomfort and tightness- except on the opposite side of it

      I hope everyone is okay out there in Lurkerville

      **EDIT**
      Oh yes... the saddest update of all. I had to put one of the kittens down last night. I think he was one of the triplets I liked the most: Chatty, because he was the most vocal cat I've ever met.
      I took the kids to the store last night. When we returned, the baby was on Momma dog's blanket on the floor. He was limp and dying. No signs of obvious trauma. But he had dried slobber around his neck and upper back.
      1) He was accidentally trampled while the dogs rough-housed, then one of the dogs moved him.
      2) He was "snapped" (sort of like shaken baby syndrome in the animal world), then dropped onto the blanket.
      3) He was dying of the illness, that inevitably kills 90% of all kittens, and one of the dogs moved him.

      I'd *like* to think it was 1 or 3. The dogs behave very lovingly towards the kittens (clean them like moms etc). BUT, they are still dogs. The puppy likes to chase them and play, and Momma is sickly and can get cranky.
      So, we're going to have to start locking them up in the bathroom whenever we leave the house or go to sleep.

      I'm just peeking in after my long break from Dreamviews. It's a slow work day so I'm just poking around and looking at old entries. So hi again!
      But honestly I just have one thing to complain about....corporate decided it was a good idea to start playing Christmas music the week before Thanksgiving. It's been the same list, sometimes the same song (different artist) back to back, and I hear the same song several times in 8 hours. It's so annoying and it's too loud to tune out and it's making me so irrationally angry.
      I swear to god, if I have to listen to Jackson 5 yelling about Mommy kissing Santa Claus one more time I'm going to murder someone. =D

      That would make me angry too!
      My favorite radio station does that with commercials and it drives me bananas. They'll play the same 2 commercials 3 times. I'm like, "Come on! I know you have other companies for ad slots. Mix it up a little!!!"
      That only last, 4 minutes or so, a few times an hour. I would beat someone up if I had to listen to it for an entire day lol

      That's hilarious, I love it XD

      I have trouble listening to the radio for that reason. And the fact that it seems like a set playlist. There was a month where I was 10-7 just about every day, and on my way home they were always playing Royals by Lorde. I got so sick of it I took a long break from the radio lol.

      I grumble about that as well- the whole "playlist" thing.
      I tend to switch between 2 different stations- ESPECIALLY now that Christmas music is nonstop lol. So, I'll leave one station for the other, get out of the car for a moment (gas stop or whatever), and when I get back in the second station is playing the last song I heard from the other one. What's on one seems to be on the other in short time.

      BUT... that's just the nature of music and stations. They'll play whatever's most popular at the time. I listen to Pop, so I run into that everywhere. Those back to back 2 commercials, though, are just on my favorite station and there's no excuse for that

      I'm a weird bird. I love music.... but I only make time for it whenever I'm driving somewhere. Which is why traveling with my hubby is so frustrating. He doesn't really get music. He hates having it played in the car (or in restaurants lol).
      I always tickle him when we eat out- especially when the music is very faint. I'll tilt my head to the side and say, "Ooh, I really like this song." He always asks how I can tell because he can't hear anything.

      Or, if the radio is heard by him, I'll say that after the first couple seconds. "How do you know, it hasn't even started yet."
      What's weird, to me, is how I'll know lyrics to songs nearly perfectly... as long as the song is playing. Once it's ended, I usually can't recall most of the words

      I've always made my kids laugh by the way I try to remember things and especially lyrics. I cover my ears with my forearms, close my eyes and then put my head down on the table or whatever. It's as though I can't tolerate any other sort of input or it will crowd out the memory

      Rant: It's my time of the month again. I'm pretty sure I'm late. My back is killing me this time; and since yesterday, I've had to run to the restroom several times because of stomach upset... which I guess is how my body interprets cramping lol.
      My mind is all floogally- as if I'm about to have a migraine. The lighting seems off- not bright enough... too bright... not in the right direction... not crisp enough Plus.. I got a solid 8 hours of sleep after skipping night before last. I am exhausted. Can barely keep my eyes open I'm also very hot, even though it's only 73 (I'm usually comfortable- when sedentary- at 77). If I turn it down though, I get cold

      Rave: I'm glad I have my iPad back to I can start using my period tracker again lol.

      Meh: I have to drive hubby to the city to have an emergency root canal done tomorrow. I think he said we have to be there at 9... which means we have to leave the house by 8-8:15... which means I would have to be awake by 7:30. Do I even bother trying to go to sleep tonight then? Perhaps I should just give in to my sleepies now and then tough it out tonight...

      Rave: I see the bone Doctor on Friday Hopefully, HE can explain my new bone weirdnesses. I'm compelled to rest my arm in front of/across my stomach, lift my elbow and lean my body back. Doing so tightens the muscles on both sides of my upper arm. My arm FEELS like it wants to pop BELOW my shoulder dimples. Would that be part of my shoulder blade? That would be a very weird thing to pop!
      I even wake myself up, trying to pop my arm. (which reminds me, I really should take some ibuprofen lol)
      My arm feels exceptionally bruised and sore along that area.
      (PT workers tell me that in all their many years there, they have never run across someone with joints as noisy and painful-sounding as mine )

      Rant-ish: But I think I'm doing okay. Which means I won't be able to pawn off the dogs on the kids for much longer
      I can keep putting it off, though, until they clip the overgrowth across the second set of porch stairs. My eldest fell through one of the steps at the primary stairs. The porch is rotting- those stairs especially so. I couldn't, safely, wrestle my way down them with the dogs. SO, I guess that could incentivize them into getting some chores done It would take them less than 10 minutes to do it all

      ^ Oh fun... Hope you don't have your "Time of the Month" on Christmas or New Years. Nothing like a gift that you can't take back.
      Rant: My right leg is killing me. I think I pulled a tendon.

      , IC. THANKFULLY, I do not celebrate the holidays. It's just another day, for me. BUT... I think hubby's kids are only in town during Christmas, which means we'll be having dinner with the gang. Which means, the Stonecoal restaurant and a 30-40 minute drive each way.
      Bah! My hormones should be winding down by then.

      I hope you feel better soon! Remember RICE- rest, ice, compression, elevation. And Ibuprofen I hope you're well enough to enjoy what ever festivities you have planned

      Rave: The drive to the city went exceptionally smoothly. Minimal traffic and SUPERB gas prices ($2.35). He was done right before 1:00. Hubby could also speak afterwards and didn't feel much until we arrived home.

      Rant: But I had to take his scripts to Walmart, and Wally World was an absolute zoo I became extremely overheated, so I took my arms out of my sleeves, and wore the turtle neck fuzzy sweater as a scarf lol (I had a tank top on underneath it ) I looked like an idiot, but I barely cared. I was on the verge of passing out.
      ... I felt that way partially because of dear Mr. Monthly, but mostly because I'm in pain with my shoulder today. More than I've been in a long time.

      Humorous: I was still wearing my shirt that way when I gave hubby his stuff. I complained of my shoulder and he exclaimed over the dimple. I told him I've always had shoulder dimples and showed him the other shoulder. Seriously, dear. We've been together for how long now?
      BUT, the one with my broken arm IS much more pronounced. Hmmm...

      I am doing nothing for the rest of the day Elder Scrolls Online is calling my name....

      Huh.. I thought I posted here after my Dr appointment...
      It went very well. He said my bone has completely healed... but I should still take it just a bit slow so I don't over tax my muscles and such or dislocate anything lol. He said my dimple is more pronounced and my shoulder is more "concaved" because my deltoid muscles aren't quite strong enough to keep everything in place.
      He also said the huge knot is probably soft tissue over the plate

      Rave: I just watched one of the best friggin movies that I've seen in a very long time. It's called Bird Box, from Netflix. I was enthralled throughout the entirety.

      Meh: But yesterday, on the other hand, I watched The Predator (2018) and... it was THE cheesiest, most profanity laced gorefest that I've seen in memory It captivated me, but in a different sort of way. Almost like watching a train wreck and not being able to look away

      Meh: I've caught up on my sleep but I still feel exhausted... AND I think I'm going to stay up all night to tackle my room. I HAVE to get this TV and Xbox set up before my step-daughter comes to town

      Raves: My e-juice arrived today, in record time! And I'm still thoroughly enjoying Elder Scrolls Online. It's not EQ2, but I still love it. A guild invited me to join while I was still trying the game for free- which makes traveling to different areas a breeze. Yet, I don't know how to travel to other areas of the map any other way I can't wait for the Holiday Event to be over so I can play the game normally and fully immerse myself. For the Event it's travel here and do this, travel there and do that. You get exceptional rewards for completing tasks, so I'm focused on that and getting places the fastest (and cheapest) way.

      Hope everyone is well and enjoying any time off from work or school y'all might have.

      **EDIT**
      Oh yeah. Humorous from yesterday or the day before:
      I was nagging my daughter Miley because she still hadn't taken care of the literbox in the bathroom. I was in my bedroom, my eldest was in my doorway talking to me, Miley was in the next room playing video games.
      We were kind of arguing back and forth, then Miley ended something with "Bitch, please!"

      I then got out my "serious" voice and said: "Excuse me, what did you just call me?! I NEVER talk to you like that, so why do you think it's okay to say to me?!"
      To which she replied: Blah, blah, blah "It's just an expression! I wasn't calling you anything..."
      The face of my Eldest was beet red. He was embarrassed for us.
      Miley continued arguing about semantics and Ray defended me, saying a person just never speaks to their mother that way.

      The humour in all of this is that Miley actually got right up and took care of the job. Semantics or not, she KNEW she crossed a line and didn't press her luck any further. I was secretly glad she said what she said because it saved us from days of back and forth and the job from getting worse and worse.

      Rant: It took me almost 3 minutes to recall the word "semantic". Synapsis? Semaptic? No and no... grrr... FINALLY, I got it

      Welcome back Yuppie. I was beginning to wonder where you disappeared to.

      Rants: I am EXTRA sleepy and in extreme discomfort today. I only managed to get about 5 hours of sleep last night. The top of my thighs is what's causing me so much grief. Sitting on my feet has NOT been cutting it, these last couple of days. The heating pad helps a bit... but not nearly enough!
      I've fallen asleep about 4 times while wiring this

      I'm still pooped today. I got 11 hours of sleep last night though
      I woke up okay, then went out for dinner and barely ate anything and *WHAM*!- I was overtaken by sudden and extreme sleepiness.
      After that, I dropped hubby off at home then rushed to Walmart to pick up meds and then to Speedway to get a Frozen Coke. They were out of Coke though I'm somewhat forcing down Frozen Mt. Dew mixed with Cherry. Meh.
      The Frozen Coke won't be available until Saturday. I'll try to soldier on til then

      I've finally woken up a little which is both a blessing and a curse. I have PT at 2:15 tomorrow, so I really should try to get to sleep at a reasonable hour. I'm feeling fairly "meh", so that shouldn't be too difficult. Nothing really sounds all that interesting enough to keep me up.

      The weekend should be pretty relaxing because his son will be taking his family to DC to visit some of his wife's friends or relatives. We're going to go eat at a fancy place on Monday. We might get together a couple more times, but hubby goes back to work on Wednesday; his daughter leaves town on Tuesday and the rest head home on Thursday.
      All this socializing is exhausting me

      I hope everyone has survived their holiday.

      *Semi-coherently* What?? Who me? I was surprised that I was able to type this semi-coherently. Thanks... Still in pain.

      Rave: Christmas was okay, we went over to my sister's house, watched movies and stuff. The dinner was good. I did some magic card tricks and stuff. I even made my niece laugh so hard that the soda came out of her nose.

      Cry/Complain: My lower back hurts. It's uncomfortable to stand up straight so I end up hunching a little, even though I know that's not actually better. And I have two lumps? Right next to each hip? They are sore to the touch and I don't know what the fuck they are. I suppose they could be knots. I'm too awkward and dumb to have health issues, no one taught me how to deal with them so I hope it just goes away, because otherwise I have to figure out what doctor to go to? And go to new places with new people? Where I don't know how to talk to them or what questions to ask. That sounds AWFUL. No thank you.

      I'm also going to complain that I'm at work and large, capable men, always ask me to load up their cabinets. I'm a tiny woman, fuck off please.

      Brief rant -- I was rear-ended on December 19th and my neck and lower back are still quite stiff and sore. Some mornings, it takes a bit of work to get out of bed. I was hit by a 17yo who decided that texting on the cell phone was more important than the life, safety, and health of their own self and others around. Luckily for the other driver, her car got hung up on my trailer hitch instead of going completely under my truck. I sure do hope that she's ok as she was also hauled off to the ER. My cervical spine discs C5 and C6 are compressed as found by CT images in the ER and I'm sure there's another couple in the lower back. I need to get some images of my lower spine. Christmas and New Year's are putting delays into scheduling radiology appointments. It's crappy, but not bad enough to go back to the ER for images. I'm writing letters to the states and federal gov't to increase the enforcement and penalties for distracted driving. People's misuse of cell phones are causing a lot of destruction to people's lives, not to mention the cases where lives are completely lost. ...I want a large bumper sticker on both of my trucks, "HANG UP AND DRIVE!"

      Brief rave -- I've finally pulled myself out of a funk I've been in for the last 9 months. I was laid off in March and started a new job in July. The new place started as a nuclear war and slowed down to just lopping grenades at each other. I don't understand why there has to be so much drama and politics in business. Finally, things have settled down as the company moved into a new office building and has picked up a couple of new contracts. I think we're on the uphill climb now, though the company is not utilizing me to the full extent that they can. I sure hope that it keeps going uphill because I'm about to show some of my good cards to them. ...cards I do not show to someone unless they are able to build some trust and respect. Trust and respect are earned, not assumed.

      Brief broadcast to all -- Please do not let the cell phone distract your driving. It may seem like the car went only a little over the line or whatever now and then, but it can seriously impact or terminate your life and the lives of others. Whatever the reason for the text is, the response/reply can wait. If something is important enough to require immediate attention, the other person will call you instead of texting. A phone call is a lot less distracting than texting as you, the driver, may keep your eyes on the road instead of the phone.

      Wow AnderJ! Glad you're reasonably okay. I hope the doctors can get you completely fixed up SOON after the holidays. The holidays throw everything into chaos and back logs
      And, thank you, for the timely reminder about cellphone usage. Here's a bumper sticker https://www.zazzle.com/stop_texting_...26349067965852

      Also happy to hear you're settling into your new job. I detest politics (and chaos and anger) so I wouldn't have lasted a day

      Amurehna, I hope you feel better soon. Can you take ibuprofen? If it's muscle related, the knots could be from inflammation and the meds could help bring it down. Also, a hot bath or shower and a heating pad could help.
      Don't feel bad about not knowing stuff. I'm still learning new things. And remember that Google is your friend : I have to get off my butt and look into things too. Like, what the heck sort of Doctor do you see for TMJ (jaw pain)?

      IC, Wow, what a dream! You really should write a book. Details, in dreams, are incredible. I'm rarely ever able to recall them to the level of your post, though.
      Glad you had a good time with your family

      Rant: Hemorrhoids. Seriously? What the heck? I've not been constipated or anything; haven't done any heavy lifting that I can think of. Just boom!- showed up out of nowhere last night. It's considerably larger than any I've had to deal with in the past. I actually broke down and used my cellphone to take a look What the heck? So, then I turned to Google: "rectal Hemorrhoid cyst or tumor" Found a bunch of blah, blah, blah, so I then turned to Images. My goodness! I thought I had it bad
      But, yeah, just hemorrhoids
      If it doesn't go away or shrink soon, I'll be turning to a rubber band. Hubby gave me some cream.

      So... I'm sitting, as best I can, on a heating pad

      Otherwise, everything is fairly peaceful and quiet today. Hubby's going to send me out for food later, but that's it. I hope the Coke man made it to Speedway today. I seriously need 64 ounces of Frozen Coke. Yes. I NEED it

      Rave: I finally got a bit more of my bedroom sorted out last night. There's now an acceptable path to my bed
      I got one level of my metal shelf cleaned off and have 2 containers there for clothes. But, I'm done with clothes. I have 50 articles of clothes hanging up- Summer, Winter, a couple sweaters, a shawl, 1 for scarves. I wear nearly none of them. Then, I have about a dozen cammies/tank tops and some 6 pairs of shorts. I do NOT need all of those clothes.
      I'm going to try on a bunch of stuff later and whatever I don't like, I'll give to my kids or donate. I can no longer tolerate pressure under my armpits . If it's not baggy, then, it's going!

      Rant: My CPAP machine isn't registering my hours

      Wow, anderj101! Hope you feel better!!

      Zhaylin, I'm okay at it. I'm used to writing dreams that are long just not sure if some of them make sense. I can't say that I'm a novelist, I would doubt that a publisher would even look at my work. They would probably just the door in my face. I am hardly a Tom Clancy or a Michael Crichton. New post I hope it isn't confusing or something like that: https://www.dreamviews.com/general-d...ml#post2231174
      Other Giant: https://www.dreamviews.com/dream-int...all-dream.html
      I've written movie scripts before that is about 110 and 120 pages. I remember writing one in college with my friends Boothy and Kevin...

      Rant: I'm a half asleep. I went to bed at 4:20 am. Why I'm up right now?? I don't know. And I think I have a fever from the shit that is going around... Crap!

      Took a fainting spell in the shopping parking lot today... I'm fine now, though. Thanks. Just a bit tired, just tired. Coffee will not help. Rant: My heating blanket is broken. It fried and I just got it for Christmas.

      Sorry to hear about your Sig, Gordan. I hope you can get it repaired or replaced quickly and inexpensively.

      IC That sounds very scary! Perhaps you should see a Dr?
      Sorry about your blanket. Can you take it back to have it replaced if nothing else? There's no reason it should just up and die so quickly!

      Rant: I got no sleep last night. I had taxi duty early, so once 5:30 arrived, I gave up on even trying. I had the girls dropped off and was back in town by 9:30... at which time I went to a walk-in clinic. When the receptionist asked the reason for my visit, I told her I wasn't sure they could help me and told her my problem. She called the back and was told if it was severe, they'd just send me to the ER, but the Dr would see me if I wanted. I told her that would be best because I just didn't know/couldn't tell if it was an emergency or not.

      The Dr took a look at me and said 'Yeah, that's a really large hemorrhoid... Don't get me wrong, I've seen bigger, but yours is up there... and the problem is, I think it's thrombosed [blood clot] so you should see a surgeon ASAP.'

      Great... But no one could be reached today, so now it's the waiting game. He called in a script of Lidcoaine (sp)/swelling relief but when I called Walmart to price check it, they said they told the Dr's office, they didn't have any and have yet to hear back from them.


      I just know, with 98% certainty that I don't want to be rubber-banded. Lance and drain the sucker and be done with it. Wearing a rubber band for a couple of weeks sounds like torture.

      As it is, I'm supposed to chug a ton of water every day, avoid foods like cheese, not lift anything and stay off my feet as much as possible for the next few days.


      When it rains, it pours I wonder just what else my body has in store for me

      Curiosity: Since the problem presented itself, I've been in a heightened state of sexual arousal It hurts. It's NOT sexy, so what the heck gives rofl? My guess is it has to do with nerve bundles and the blood vessels being engorged? I mean, I know men have pleasure sensors in their bum, but do women? It's all very weird but interesting

      I find out on Monday whether or not I need surgery for this new problem I'm glad I'm not dying. Monday was the earliest I could be seen .
      I can already tell 2019 is going to be a major pain in my butt

      Rant: My body is finally saying NO!!!! to frozen cokes. It's causing acid reflux

      Rave: Everything else is fairly fine and peaceful. All of the guests left by Thursday, and hubby went back to work on Wednesday... so everything is slowly getting back to normal. I also found a new forum (the layout is almost exactly like DV lol- down to many of the same smilies, "Quick Post" and "Go Advance"). It's about MBTI and other personality tests/results.
      I've discovered Enneagrams and Sociotypes, which has been very interesting (and immensely sonfusing And, yes, I realize I typed that wrong, but that's JUST how confusing it all is )

      Meh: Hubby's sending me out for a healthy fish dinner at 4:15 (an hour from now). I can't recall the last time we ate together at his house. It's been a while because he kept me at arms length while I had "the plague". It'll be nice to share a meal with him, but that involves leaving the house first

      I hope everyone has been well.
