Just to be sure everyone knows "Liz" is not my real name. People started shortening Lizard Lady to Liz years ago and it kind of stuck.

I am in a lot of pain today

not worth the pain

Hi Emily, I thought I included you. I'm so sorry if I didn't. I hope you feel better very soon and know that you are cared about and I'm very glad you're here.

Kiya, how in the world do they expect you to make it through summer with no AC? Isn't that against the law? Aaargh! I wish you could live here.

I'm very glad you are getting through with no self harm and that you missed the storm.

Belle goes back to the vet today. I have to compile a list of what I want for her and questions I have. Then, as soon as I get home from that I have to change and be ready to leave ASAP to attend a wake which is not near here. I'm worried about the colitis, but it's really important that I be there.

I had PT and received my back brace yesterday. The pain was unreal and caused a massive migraine also. I am much more comfortable this morning, but I am really hesitant to do my exercises today in case it sets the pain off again.


I love you all.

Kiya have you looked into a potable air conditioner? I am not sure if you have a Home Depot where you live but I have been looking at them because with lupus even the heat makes me sick. Hubby doesn't want a window unit. According to him they are ugly and someone can break into your home when you are gone. We are hoping to get a new heater and add ac then. in the mean time we have ceiling fans in each bedroom and 2 in the front room and tile and wood flooring no carpet. There have been times when a grabbed a pillow and laid on the tile floor

But going back to the portable AC unit when I first looked at them years ago they were very expensive now you can get one for $275.00. It's still a lot of money but if it works...... and you can move it to your front room to your bedroom and even your bathroom if you want

Jan don't do to much. I am pretty sick today but it's my own fault. I spent 3 + hours outside yesterday in the record heat yelling at the cemetery people. Then I had to get up early because they said the washing machine guy would be here between 8am and noon. I called them at 11:20 and they said they would be here by 1:00 pm. I am not a happy camper

Take care everyone

i'm just giving you my name for future reffrence, as I noticed you used everyone else's real name

think of it as a service provided by me to you,

or something
I don't use anyone's real name- I use their screen names or shortened versions of them. Liz for Lizard Lady, Jan for January, Cake for Cake Lady etc.

Cake, those portables still have tubes that connect to a window, like a small swamp cooler. You still have to fit it in a window.

The Fibromyalgia check in thread #3

way to go, Christina~!!

i use a little portable indoor water cooler, and when times get hot i can put ice in it and on top of it too~! it only cost me about $50, and is VERY energy effecient. i can point it at me where ever i am, i like that~! i suppose if you live in a very muggy climate, you might want to invest in a dehumidifier... too. best wishes~!
