    Mike, we got you. We are here for good and bad.
  2. I have no idea. There are many clued up people here who may be able to answer that. All I’m going to say, is if you are doing all the right things, don’t dwell on the possibility. The stress won’t help.

    Mike fatigue is not fun. Praying you will find a solution that suits both you and your employer.

    I feel for everyone with PBA. I cannot even begin to imagine...glad people are finding ways to help.

    Heather the dreaded kids question! So rude! My brother is 48 and single (always has been) and people ask me if he’s gay. It’s like there always has to be a reason. And like that reason has to be explained. It is what it is.
  6. Tarina it is so hard, this becoming a new you. I have found contentment with the new me, but it took a while. You may not remember your young bloke’s birthday, but you were there and he will remember that.

    Gosh. What a nightmare for you all. Kelli I cannot believe Walgreens...is there anything to be done?
  8. So we've been in Perth for way too long, 5 nights. Country roads are taking us home today! We all can't wait! We've caught up with some friends down here. Once at a cafe, then at a park. I find if I'm sitting down, I can have water and a milkshake or coke or hot chocolate and I'm fine. Once I stand up, I need the toilet. NOW. Both times I have gone to the loo, but by the time I shut the door and pull everything down one handed (and wipe the toilet seat because eeewwwww)... Too late. Not a lot, but I can't hold it in. Going to have to wear some kind of protection when I'm out. It's happened a few times when I have been out in town, too. My mum reckons it happened to her recently (at home, long story). Ok, so she's 70, and not disabled. I'm 46!! This should not be happening! Sad days ahead.

I always think I'll be right...yeah, nah. Never. PS Yeah, nah = no Nah, yeah = yes Yeah, nah. No idea why we say it either!

    Nicole still having sight issues. I see my doctor in January so will ask him what he thinks regarding the brain trying to comprehend what it's seeing.
  12. Biting into the hand...that's where I'm at. Not painful as such, but uncomfortable in many places from the palm right up to the shoulder.

    Hi Tarina Yes, struggling with the dreaded D word... Took me probably two years to accept that Disabled is now a big part of who I am. It's a badge I didn't want to wear, but now I wear with pride. I take disability issues seriously and write to politicians constantly about improving accessibility etc. Apply for your disability payment, you are entitled.

    Phil your flag is American..I was confused for a minute there! My husband and I took our kids to Canada two Christmases ago...what a beautiful magical country you live in.
