Sounds like you suffered a traumatic incident my friend.  I love your attitude, you have to take it a moment at a time.  I'm sorry this has happened to you, whatever it was/is.  Remember sweetie, prednisone has terrible mood-altering properties which will improve the longer you are finished with it.  Wish I could say more. Let us know how you make out in the days/ weeks to come, ok?

You sound so much better than last year.  We have so much in common.  I'm just waiting for Linda to get ready for one of several appts this week.  Makes it tough to split off time to visit my ailing mother in WV, all she does is complain on the phone and wishes she were dead. I think Weds I'll be able to get there and do shopping, etc.

I got my bike together again and now a cold/rainy weather front moved in for at least the next 7 days.  I get out when I can though. Anyway, take life as it presents itself, right?  Take care and talk to you soon. Remember, anytime you want to chat drop a note ;D

Oh it feels great not needing a smoke anymore.  I still remember going outside 6 or 7 times while my daughter was on the way in labor ;p  Gads, that's the one thing I'd not do if I had a life do over.

Hmmm, according to the calc I saved $35K from quitting eight years ago. What a terrible addiction.

Hi Rich, 

Has been awhile since I have been on the forum.  Congratulation on the 8 years - know I am late in posting, but better late then never.

I passed my 3 years in March, so we are making it.

Will have to catch up on your post but see Linda has some more issues, sorry to hear that.

Hi Triff, 

Yes I am still around but do not get on the forum much these days.Took me several days to find this thread on the new layout.

We had a long cold, icy winter. I had to put on YakTrax just to take my dog out in the yard - solid ice covered with snow.

I am just now getting over a cold not helped by allergies, but otherwise doing pretty good. Better then everyone else here on the forum, sounds like has been rough for you and others.

My pulmonary doc is pleased with how I am doing. He says looking at my x-ray and CT Scan and looking at me seem to be 2 different people.. He says unless life or death he does not want to see me on any prednisone as already have thin bones. So far has not come to that.

Take care and hope you feel better.

Hi Triff,

Sounds like things are coming together regarding servers you need. Hope it all works out as planned.

Our weather is still a yoyo, mostly cool and wet. The farmers can not even get their crops planted as their fields are still very wet or under water from all the rains.

Take care......sue

Wish I could help you in some way. I hope you're going to get better soon.  Is it going to be winter or summer in your hemisphere?

I've been riding a lot, have been drowned a few times in the rain.  Just like ripping up the asphalt on two wheels again.  About the only enjoyment left in life.

Keep us informed of your progress ok??
