Or me too....Liz
05-07-2012, 09:35 PM
Liz your not invisible to me... I have you in my heart. Your daughter needs you too.
Oh. Thank you, Becky. Im just tired of all the emotions. But I guess I should be happy that Im not completely numb, and can still feel something...
05-07-2012, 10:24 PM
Liz, your cloak of invisibility has fallen off, and now we can all see you... hey, walk away from that brownie, it's mine! Besides my figure is shot, and yours is so fine you don't need it.
Question: how's your daughter's night terrors doing? Hopefully gone?
yes Helen- she hasnt had another since the other night. Im hoping it was just a fever thing.
I need MORE brownies.

You might just be experiencing P T S D. Especially after reading how traumatic the events played out. Is there a free clinic somewhere where you can go and talk to someone? Will your doctor give you a prescription without seeing you? We can only do so much, I wish we could do more. But we are content to sit and listen to you any time of the day or night. I will pm my phone number if you want it. I have free nights after 9 and all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday . I love to talk, much easier than using this voice stuff on the phone.
If you are feeling vulnerable, then I say understandably so. You are venturing into uncharted waters. We can and will be here for you when you have decisions to make. I hope I haven't confused you. Suffice it to say your forum moms are here for you. We will pick you up when you fall. We will praise you with every new step you take. I'm so glad to know you and to be part of your life. I am honored that you ask any one of us for help.
My CHEESE: Having Liz in my life!

Wine......my iPad broke
Cheese........it was the charging cord, worked it out when my iPhone didn't charge. Duh
Cheese........ All of my wonderful magnificent extraordinary splendid incredible friends on this forum
05-08-2012, 12:54 AM
Wine.........my inability to put commas in my post
05-08-2012, 01:07 AM
WHINE: Today is my anniversary. 6 months ago I died and was brought back.
CHEESE: I'm here!
05-08-2012, 03:04 AM
whine...nobody is getting me any brownies...:-(...Wish my family could understand I need more than food and water...**sigh**
Cheeze......I SEE you Liz and you are Beautiful! Love you girlfriend! I care what you think and say. You have helped me thru so many tough times as well as all of you. Thank you so much!
Cheeze....Yay! Toto Is Here!
Toto- did you know that every time I post something on the forum, there is a little FB thingy at the bottom of my post that says YOU like my post. How the hell do you like it, if I just posted it? LOL. Silly computers.
05-08-2012, 09:23 AM
You got me Liz? I'm psychic and know what you are going to post before you do? I haven't a clue.
05-08-2012, 12:46 PM
Whine, I feel like i'm on house arrest. I hate not driving
Cheese, not just any old cheese but nice, fresh mozzarella, Liz :) you rock sweetheart.
You too Toto.
I had PTSD after my mom died. it's rough. I was almost nonfunctional
05-08-2012, 01:08 PM
The FB like thing is if anyone has ever clicked the like on any of your posts it shows up usually when it as at the borrón if the page. I wish they would remove it as it always puts friends who have died saying they like my post. Then again it does being a smile to my heart in remembering them
05-08-2012, 07:17 PM
I go between being creeped out by the fact that it shows up, and remembering them fondly... I think I'd prefer to remember them without fb's help.
05-08-2012, 07:24 PM
Yes, it loves to tell me Felica likes my post... still hurts every time :(
05-08-2012, 09:44 PM
Whine.......Did I say how much I Hate ALS.........
05-08-2012, 10:56 PM
Di, even if you did you can say it again
Can anyone tell me how to turn it off? The F B Like thingie, not Di.
WHINE: I'm selfish and human
05-08-2012, 10:58 PM
Susan, its been over 6 months for me. It gets easier with time. I just hate to be at the mercy of others.
05-08-2012, 11:41 PM
Whine: None other than the BIG ones....we all got.
Cheese: I think I finally have a house keeper that will suit, been looking for 3 months, she just left after interview, we clicked and wait for it.......her name is Sally!
05-09-2012, 02:27 AM
whine...i am done.................................... ........................................ .....................
05-09-2012, 12:43 PM
I just thought of something....Your island is what 24 or 34 miles wide? And how far can you go on 1 charge on your loaner chair? I would hate to see you lose control or the joystick get stuck and we see you on the 5 o clock news speeding like a jet to the mainland. Since I never got to see Diane's high speed chase from the cops, you're up next on what's to watch on the news today. Gee tv would be nice.
NO WHINE, I JUST WANT ALL THE CHEESE I CAN GET+!
05-09-2012, 01:51 PM
Sally.....Glad to hear about Sally :)
Di....did you get pwc yet?
Toto.....I guess I need to sprinkle you with some parmesan cheese ;)
05-09-2012, 02:37 PM
Whine: I've been a bit down but I've been checking on you still!
Whine: I am giving up driving. Can't quickly step on the breaks anymore which is dangerous. I hear you Susan!
Cheese: I love you too Liz! I love all of ya!
05-09-2012, 02:41 PM
Whine: Pie is blue.
Whine or Cheese: Di's chair? Not sure yet......
Cheese: I just love Toto!
05-09-2012, 03:24 PM
Love you my little Sally Pie!
05-09-2012, 04:34 PM
Whine: Some jerk from down the street came down here, ringing my doorbell repeatedly until I got to the door and opened it to find him on my doorstep, wearing a wife beater and shorts hanging off his rear-end, smoking a cigarette and blowing it in my face, to ask if he could mow my lawn for fifty bucks. End result is I had to sit here and have a nebulizer treatment because of his smoking and now I'm jittery and feel bad.
Cheese: My dad is bringing me a Subway Smokehouse BBQ sandwich and a cheese pizza for the wee man for dinner. Yea!
05-09-2012, 07:07 PM
Marta, I wondered where you have been. Its not so bad, the not driving part. Just make sure you and brad work out your meal menus in advance. And always buy a few goodies to have when that crave hits. And from now on, ask your friends to come by and pick you up for a lunch date et cetera. I'm. Not sure how close you are to town, but remember the aging department for transportation and the old stand by the dreaded taxi. You could always do what helen does and scoots on downtown to do whatever. I see a lot of older people with those hover rounds hovering the edge of the roads here. We also have a lot of golf cart drivers. And they are legal here. Might just have to sell the car and get a tricked out golf cart. Lotsa bling, baby. So much you won't need headlights. Just make sure its too girly for brad to drive.
And remember marta, don't be bleu for long. I'm allergic to bleu cheese and I would hate to cut you out of my diet!
Y'all have a good night, I'm heading to bed.
05-09-2012, 08:25 PM
Gray skies are gonna clear up, Put on a HAPPY Face
After so much WHINE and rightly so
There's some CHEESE in the house!
05-09-2012, 08:40 PM
Cheeze....................I GOT MY PWC!.................the barge made it safely, picked it up this morning, it is awesome! Thanks for all your prayers everyone.....:-).........I bet I could drive it around the island except I am not allowed in hiway, thoose are our 2 lane roads..........LOL......If it only had wings!.........I found some brownies too when I got home.............:-)
05-09-2012, 08:40 PM
Where's the cheese Toto? I could use some good news, did you get your pwc yet? Also, did Di get her pwc? That is definitely cheeseworthy...
05-09-2012, 08:42 PM
Wow, talk about timing, Di, your post just popped up as I was typing mine! That is sooooo wonderful, now you are gonna need to watch out for the doorways you're going to be customizing!!!!!
HOOOORAY FOR DI's PWC!!!! Bout time.... Yay!!!!
05-09-2012, 09:04 PM
Whine.........., Non what am I going to whine about?...oh ya,..getting into Bathroom!
Cheeze............Liz, your kindness seem to have gotten people over on the move after a call from ALS Gaudian Angels, I can't thank you enough, your my angel!
Awww! Im glad I could have a little part in it.
Thank you Ray.
05-09-2012, 09:21 PM
"BIG PART", both You and Ray, I will never ever forget, you will be blessed for your love and kindness.
I already am... ive got YOU for my friend.
05-09-2012, 10:01 PM
Awwww.....*blushing*...........I am honored to be your friend!
I think we may have girl crushes on each other, Di...
Too. Many. Brownies.
05-09-2012, 10:22 PM
A toast to our precious Liz!!! Congrats to our Di! Good news this week is great...
05-09-2012, 11:03 PM
*clink*. Toast to Liz, Ray and Di!
Thank you Toto. I'm cheered up. Some what anyway. Still have a little ways to go. Love you!
Marta Pie! I love you! Im sad that you are down, but I understand- and its ok. I will send you lots and lots of computer hugs and kisses and just know that no matter what you are still beautiful, wonderful Marta. We know it... youve just got to find that in you again.
Until then, you take it easy dear. Love you.
05-10-2012, 01:27 AM
Helen, you were joking that my chair was here right? No such luck. BC BS approved the chair within 72 hours. Now the problem is the customized parts of the chair. They all have to be itemized and insurance approves it. This takes no more than 30 days. I got the phone call on Monday from d m e lady and she sent a letter out for me to sign. Got it yesterday, someone signed it and out it went in todays mail. Hopefully since they approved the other quickly, this will get done quickly. Then they order it, it comes in and then they have to put the chevy parts with the dodge parts and a few ford parts. Hopefully it won't take long. Dave knows how important it is to me. Still cheese!
Sorry, no real offer on the house. There's a reason its not selling. GOD has a plan. Maybe its the h g t v shows green home give a way. Have you been entering? Can't hurt. I started entering every contest out there or on my phone or tablet. I'm desperate.
Have a good one. If I'm gone for a few days, I will pm 1 person and we can play the tele game. Nothing major.
My Love to All,
05-10-2012, 01:58 AM
Teleport or telepathic, or telepathic television?
Enjoy your sojourn in Oz my sweet. Are you taking the yellow brick road? I suppose that depends on how much oxycodon you take:)
I've been watching 3 episodes of Dr who with son.......have science fiction on my brain, stirred with a bit of fantasy.:)
05-10-2012, 02:15 AM
Sorry, Aly. The telephone. Hmmm doc tor who. Who is doc tor who? Apparently not the james bond one. I found Kens o bit on line but I don't know how to click and paste all that technology stuff. His service is Saturday at 3 in Conway. I wish I could go.
Have a good night Aly!
05-10-2012, 02:34 AM
Dr Who, you know, the tardis......... traveling, time lord. Real cult series. Daleks and cybermen. Have you ever watched it. Was in black and white when I was a kid. I used to get so frightened of the daleks...........exterminate, exterminate......still makes me tremble :).
05-10-2012, 03:21 AM
Marta so sorry you are down but totaly understand, was there just recently myself. I will be praying for you sweety pir. Tomarrow the sun will come up........:-), Getting this chair was a double feeling thing, didnt want but I do need it. Happy and sad at the same time.
Liz we are friendgirls...lol ...who love brownies...:-)
05-10-2012, 05:27 AM
Whine: Marta and Susan have had to give uP driving and Helen is cutting back. I gave it up last July when KK arrived. It's such a great loss of independence.
Cheese: Di got her wheels! Toto's are being cobbled together! Kudos to Liz for the part she played in expediting the delivery of Di's wheels!
05-10-2012, 09:02 AM
Whine: It's taking soooo long to grow the color out of my hair!
Cheese: My colorist is working her best magic to ease the transition to a natural gray without damaging my hair. She was able to do the cutting and coloring while I was in the wheelchair and I was blessed to have both KK and RY to help me stand up to transfer when I needed to. The cut looks good!
Cheese: Love it when friends get new haircuts and love the new look!
05-10-2012, 11:32 AM
Deb....Glad you are happy with new cut.....where is pic so we can all see??? I know what you mean about taking a long time for color to grow out....my natural color is black and about 10 years ago I decided to not color it anymore....I am salt and pepper now....mostly salt :)
Liz....you are truly a sweetie with all the help you give
05-11-2012, 03:33 AM
But Cathy that's from driving those snotty nosed little brats er uhm I mean those darling chaps to and from school. You earned everyone of them! As for me, my hair is white mixed with who knows what. I started coloring it with a blonde. Turns out a lot better than the red I used to use. I'm thinking about having extensions put in my hair. Making it fuller to do an "Adele do". The one where she has red hair and in a bun on the back to the side. But with some swooping long "bangs". Can't have the big old forehead left uncovered. Would like to try it now to see if it will look good for that special event that's around the corner.
Di, how many pit stops do you take in a day? And I don't mean potty breaks. You're going to wear the rubber right off those tires.
No whine really other than you all know.
But Dianes cheese is good for me too!
Have a good 1, I'm going to bed.
05-11-2012, 03:35 AM
Oh, and Sadie already mentioned it to me, I broke 600 tonight. Boy I like to run my mouth!
05-11-2012, 04:52 AM
I was thinking of going dark not platinum..lol...white actually, makes me look soooo old, by I'm not really...LOL....I did cut 10 inches now at my bra strap line and not my waist, also got rid of most of the blond that was left...:-(
05-11-2012, 04:54 AM
By the time I read the 600th it was 608, run baby run!
Di I want to see a picture... was this haircut recent?
05-11-2012, 11:55 AM
Cheese: sounds like my pwc was approved by insurance, saw the vendor last night and he put the order in this week! Yippee for MassHealth, wish all of you had state healthcare that actually helps.
Hooray for Helen and MassHealth!!!
05-11-2012, 01:57 PM
YAY! for Helen,,,,,WooooHooo! That is great!....I'll race ya!
Liz, Haircut was about a month ago, Was getting to hard to handle, I just braided it down the back, brought it forward and ..snip.. 10 inches gone, it was like cutting off my arm but it needed it. Feels so much thicker now, letting bangs grow out and are driving me nuts, I can now barely get them behind my ears so I can see. Last time I ended up cutting them again. I usually where it up anyway...or pony tail.
05-11-2012, 02:00 PM
Great news Helen, what colour did you order in the end? Is it turbo charged. Keep your scooter and when I visit next, we can have races up the main street of Southborough:)
05-11-2012, 04:47 PM
Aly, I forgot to ask if I got the purple? Better call them on Monday I guess, now I have to know...
Friday night and wanted to take the boy for a haircut, but can't find the darn coupon! Arghh, I gave it to his Dad about 2 weeks ago and they never went.
Anyone doing anything fun this weekend?
I have 2 showings tomorrow, luckily at the same time... and turned down yet another offer for $100K less than the price I'm offering. They keep comparing my house to one that sold last year at a huge discount as the owners had to dump it, couldn't afford to pay 2 mortgages.. so that's these buyers' justifications for lowballing me. Guess what, keep looking!
OOOoooh! I get to be the referee!!! Yessss!
05-11-2012, 05:41 PM
Great news about the PWC, Helen. And also it's nice that you have two showings tomorrow. Good luck!
05-11-2012, 05:49 PM
Helen, you tell 'em! Congrats on the chair! Woohoo!
05-11-2012, 06:00 PM
Hope you are on a good luck run Helen, had good luck on the chair, hope for good luck with the showings, finger crossed for you.
05-11-2012, 06:17 PM
Thank you all! Keeping these darn fingers crossed for tomorrow.
Liz, you better watch you that your toes don't get run over when you referee the race!
05-11-2012, 09:44 PM
H elen, all body parts crossed. i hope tomorrow is the day.
keep us posted
05-12-2012, 06:03 AM
Whine...........I'm so tired
Cheeze..........I'm a good tired. Drove Pee my little mule 1.5 miles following him as he ran/jog getting ready for police physical test. The I drove up a ramp into his truck and we went to the mal looking at refrigerators, he walked I had Pepe and went across street comparing prices, back to mall, and yes he now has a real working refer and I and Pepe bonded....LOL............ But what Freedom I had, it was awesome!
05-12-2012, 08:32 AM
Di, I hope you have many more days of freedom!!! We'll never find you... You'll be out and about!
Cheese... Passports arrived and cruise line said they could handle Rog's feeding issues! We have air conditioning again (95 yesterday). Most students turned in a state report on time, and they look pretty good!
Di- you named him Pepe? I LOVE IT!!!
05-12-2012, 10:04 AM
Diane, that's wonderful that you now have wheels to go places.... without worrying so much about everything we have to deal with. So is Pepe your wheel's name? What color is Pepe?
I do love my wheels too!
Getting ready for the house showing, shouldn't be too bad today, we already vacuumed this week. Make the beds (my Mom is coming over to put her touches on that, she's the best... and I don't mean the best at making beds lol).... plant sale this morning, I may scooter over to pick something up if there's anything left by the time I get there. No more buying plants for my garden unfortunately, cannot dig in the dirt anymore, even my hands don't want to do that anymore. TTYL, have a good morning everyone!
