Waa,Waa, Baby!

I have about five unfinished stories started in my 'puter. I suppose I should just take the time to look at them at least, but I don't.
Because of the stress of hubby's new job, and our house being sold (I love my house), and the stress of finding a new home for us, I woke up this morning with a Mono flair up. I haven't had one in over a dozen years, but I have one now. I was diagnosed with "chronic Mono" when I was in my late teens. I know, "whatever that is". Basically, I had a ton of blood work and the last thing on the last page was Mononucleosis. Positive. The doctor said it wasn't the common kind (because I'm special, I guess), but he had only read about it in the medical journals...never actually seen a case yet. I hope I made his day. Anyway, it doesn't go away. I think he said it just goes to sleep or something and can flair up. It used to bother me quite a bit for years, but than nothing until today. Just take Aleve and try not to whine. I went out to the porch and napped on the hot wood- like a giant heating pad. Worked, but now I have a pink face.
It's like having all of your large muscles in your back, and butt, and legs, and lower tummy be in one huge knot. But I'm feeling better now that the Aleve has had a few hours to take hold, and that I have been able to waa, waa to whoever is lucky enough to read this today. :D

Boy, I remember that pretty well. It took some special test that had to be sent to Mayo Clinic or some place to be processed. Try not to be too stressed about the impending changes. Don't you watch the campaign? "Change" can be good! So sorry you're feeling so crummy.

AWW. I'm sorry. Does your throat hurt? Does your spleen hurt? Boy if it feels anything like the acute mono I had then you need to go to bed and let those practically grown people you live with take care of themselves - and you. Want me to call them? I will...

It's also called chronic Eptein Barr, Right?

Everything will fall into place. It always does. It will be ok. You rest.

Maybe you should get those tonsils taken care of after you move...

Sorry you're sick, Julie. Nothing like living with stress. It affects us in ways that are not really lovely. Try to rest and trust.

Kay, remember when you were shopping for your wedding dress in Pueblo and I hurt so bad that I couldn't even sit down? It's not that bad, but it did hurt to sit or lie down. I'm very very much better today!!

Julie, I just prayed for you! Get better. BTW, I love the picture at the top of your blog.

Robbie, I believe that photo has been swiped. Considering I scanned it and photoshopped it to restore the color and cropped it so you could see her goofy face and then, I guess, she stole it. But it fits. It captures her essence.
