    Glad your getting it checked out Jane! Get a head start on the healing process and take some ((((Echinacea)))). With all that pain something gotta be wrong. Echinacea Extract is the best form IMO (I like it right from the bottle and it tastes so good I could drink the whole bottle, but I don’t). I use the herb in cooking soups and such and it really adds to the flavor. It is one of the best known and most used herbs to boost the immune system.

    Take care Jane (I hope the doctor visit turns out really good) 🙂

    Emmer, I’m glad you’re feeling better. If you’re having a bad day, you can come white knuckle it with me!

    Oh, Emmer, I’m so very sorry. I think talking to your counselor is a great idea. Your last staement sounds suspiciously like some kind of depression. Depression is a big trigger, so I’m glad you’re getting help.

    Hang in there, OK?

    Thank you lee! Yeah, I am kind of worried what they will tell me. You know we always have that fear in the back of our minds that we will be told we have some God-awful disease or something and a specific number of days to live!:hypnotize
    That is human nature though, I guess.
    I have heard of the “Echinacea” but in all honesty, I really don’t want to put anything else in my body right now until I get checked out.

    I wish I could just “fast forward” to the day of my apt.! This waiting is killing me!!

    emmer…How are you doing today? I hope you can get into your DR and see what’s up…sometimes just to talk to someone helps.
    I am not sure if you are religious or not, but sometimes when the world is weighing heavy on my shoulders, I ask God for some help to carry me.

    Please take care and keep posting!

    Checking in here!!! I cant believe I was forgotten!!!!!!!!!!! I’m doing good back to work. North if you need to talk I’m a phone call away!!!! Keep your chin up and eventually things will turn around. I think most places where u will be handeling $ do background checks its suck. Here they even run your credit report. I have been turned down for jobs because I had bad credit well if I had a job to pay my bills I wouldnt have bad credit IDIOTS!!!

    For all concerned: Echinacia is a “very” safe “herb”. It is not a drug. There is no known side effects. Other safe herbs: Oregano, garlic, cayenne pepper, ginger, ginseng, etc. 🙂

    I can commiserate with you north. It can be a life sentence. Don’t let it be a “death” sentence. If I wasn’t wearing a helmet when I bit asphalt doing, in excess of 80 mph on a motorcycle, I wouldn’t be here. I hate to use a cliche, but you wouldn’t jump off a cliff just because others do would you? 🙂

    {{North}} So sorry about the job…that really sucks and I hope you don’t let it discourage you from looking!
    Did you go for the bike ride yesterday?
    Hubby has an old {1980’s} Kawasaki that he rebuilt and we ride around the neighborhood now and then. We rode alot when we were dating so many years ago but I am just not so brave anymore. I have also had alot of friends die over the years in motorcycle wrecks so that makes me think twice. ;-(
    I would hate to find out what a bug hitting a car windsheild feels like so I strongly urge the wearing of a helmet…It just might make the difference between life and death!

    leeside…I’m sorry I was so negative about the “Echinacia”. {I am sooo grumpy!}
    I have used it before…probably in the form of throat lozenges when I was fighting a cold{?} and know it is safe.
    Maybe I will give it a try after I find out what’s up with my stomach. It is also a good suggestion for my daughter over the winter at college when she seems to pick up everything that is going around campus and at the elementary school she works at!

    Ahhh..a woman after my heart..you say GRUMPY like its a BAD thing!!
    Live and let live…its not all a happy little cake walk for sure. Man you guys..god willing I will have 30 days from dope on here in about a week!! Things are definitely rolling along..I am getting out of myself ..Desperation keeps me going many times..

    I am DESPERATE to save my own ass today…I really do NOT want to miss out on the second half of my life today!! I have to work this program with all my effore right now…I want those promises they speak of…That is WHY I am doing this ya know!!!
    THE PAYOFF of recovery is pretty awesome…I have to check my motives …and my expections…
    Be careful with any ROMANTIC situations pop up..ya might want to avoid the 13th step unless ..I have to break those old habits of horniness..they have NEVER worked out real well for me…pretty intense and exciting though…but when I am doing that I am walking right alongside my addiction…I am addicted to men too and not having anyone to “hunker down ” with through this cold Alaskan winter SUCKS…
    Last night though Chance the cat and I…all slept in my bed..
    I had a candle burning……fell asleep…and the candle started a fire….on the AA book…SMOKE ALARM wroks fine Guys!!! No safety concerns there!!
    It is freezing rain out there today..better call for a ride to the meeting..
    I have a sore throat from hell today…I need to watch my language..sorry guys..I’m feeling a little DEFIANT TODAY!!!!!
    ANOTHER characteristic of the ADDICT!!!!!

    love north
