    Hello from skipper66/Kim

    Hi Everyone, I don't get on here as much as I used to but wanted to stop in and say Hi to everyone. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I sometimes read but don't post all the time. I wasn't dad's caretaker so I'm not as knowledgeable to give advice as most of you...

    I will log in and respond to threads and then my posts won't appear. Sometimes, I try and repost several times. It is very frustrating. Why is this happening?

    What the H-----.

    Hi Everyone, I have been having eye twitches in my left eye. I thought it was maybe due to a medicine it was on. I have been off of it now for over a month and my eye still is twitching. The other medicines I'm on for depression I have been taking off/on for years. So, I...

    Wanted to share this.

    Wasn't sure what section to post this on. So, I put in this other section. I saw that a friend had posted this on f.b. and liked it so I wanted to share it. A Irish Funeral Prayer Death is nothing at all. It does not count I have only slipped away into the next room. Everything remains as it...
