Well I just wanted to let you all know I am doing good, tired alot but that is normal I guess. I still have my pains and aches in my joints.. My sleeping habits are not good anymore. Staying up late and sleeping until 8:30 or until noon.. It just depends if I get woke up by the phone or the doggies...Or by the people that live with me...

I had seen my lawyer last Friday and had to go back this past Tuesday to file online for disability again. right now I am waiting for a lady to call me back around 3:30 to go over my claim. I have not done that before... I jus thope this time I get it... I had filed back in 2003 and was denied finally in June 2007... But we are apealing it and adding all the great stuff that happen to me this past fall and winter..

I am so glad the weather is warming up , yes it still in the 30 and 40 but the air is warmer feeling then the winter air... do you know what I mean? I made an appointment with a psychologist and will see him soon, waiting for the paper work to get here. I will see my rheumatologist at the end of April.. And my gastro is the middle of the month of April.. I can't believe its almost April.. Well all jsut wanted to check in... Take care, Sam

Hi Sam,

I am glad to hear that you are healing up nicely. Good luck with the disability, keep us posted as to how it turns out.

The weather here is still chilling me to the bone. 41 today and rainy so I've kept the heat cranked up in the house. With the oil prices going up the way they are, I try not to do it too much but sometimes you just have to. We just got 100 gallons on Monday and it was over $350. That lasts about a month if I'm careful.
Stay well.

I am glad to hear you are your way to a better spring than your winter has been! Good luck on your disability as I am sure that will really take a lot of worries away! Good luck your April appointments.

Warm hugs.

Sam, I'm glad to hear you're feeling better. You are in my thoughts.
Sadie PS- Yes, it will be nice to have warmer weather again. We sure have had enough cold weather here in Oh.

Good morning Sam,
Once this weather breaks we are going to finally meet. I now know not to look for someone with grey hair and purple streaks. I will be able to spot you for sure. We will wait another month until it warms up if that is good with you. Glad you are feeling a bit better. You are a bit closer to the Adrain mall than I am. But that is a great place to meet. I'm am looking forward to meeting you. Sheryl
