    Jendie, I really do believe animals can see things that humans can't. Maybe because out brains are too cluttered with nonstop thoughts.

    :) I am having a hard day. My rib cage feels like it is squeezing me. My right knee has arthritis and it hurts to stand or transfer. Andy did my shopping and put ointment on me. I have spent the day on the bed.

    I am praying for a less painful day tomorrow. The Shingles make little burns in rows back and forth over my stomach.

    Y'all have a good weekend. Stay safe. Jeanie :)

    Jeanie, that sounds so horrible. I will also hope for a better day tomorrow.

    Oh, I am so sorry that you are in so much pain. If you can, or have Andy do this, put some wtich hazel around your arthritic knee. After that, you can apply some Aspercreme.

    I worry about you falling and further injuring yourself, Jeanie. I wish that I could be there to help you. My prayers and love are with you.

    Critters are far more intuitive and in tune with the rhythms of our planet than we are.

    Be safe and well and pay attention to the messages delivered by animals in your life. Think about the joy and comfort they bring to you and their unconditional love. This is how it should be for all of us.

    Prayers and love to you all and your loved ones ~

    Love & Light,

    Why am I up at 3AM in the morning and Howie is just snoozing away. I think we have changed places. I don't have anyone to talk to.

    Thumbs up

    It's a lonely place to be isn't it. But it is quiet.

    I have been going to bed at 1am, and get up when I get up. And no naps even though I do have a "quiet time" where I turn off the lights, stretch out, and just lie there until I have to get up.

    I did quit taking naps because it made me like you are right now. I usually have a hard time going to sleep, and then a hard time waking up. That first mug of coffee helps with that.

    I hope you did finally sleep.

    I've been busy with the worst phase of the housing recertification process lately. I always have to focus on it at this point--the time when I have to come up with all records of expenses over the past year and make sure they tally with the records the management has received from all of the "providers" (pharmacies, bank, doctors, dental insurance, etc.) and make sure I've included everything that is allowable.

    This year the situation was far more complicated than usual but that part is over now. At least the interview was done over the phone, and that did help though it was different.

    Agate, is it ever a problem getting all providers to get their information in and to match up with yours? I would think it could be.

    Howie, I did go to sleep somewhere between 3:15 and 3:30AM. I got up at 10AM.

    Ann asked how my Rituxan treatment was working. The answer is that I don't really know. I have been on it for about 4 years with no relapses and no side effects. But, I do feel like I am slowly going downhill year by year in terms of fatigue and overall ill feeling. I have zero get up and go. I don't know how much is due to MS and how much is due to depression. I take Celexa. I know I would feel better if I forced myself to exercise, but I just can't.

    That's the problem with all of the MS drugs, isn't it? I felt the same way about Avonex and Copaxone when I was taking them--that I wasn't improving (but then improvement hadn't been promised) and I was still gradually worsening.

    But it could always be maintained that if I hadn't been on an MS drug, I might have got far worse or got worse faster.
