I'm so happy! I got to see L in-person today and we had a great session. It had been a month since our last in-person session. It's hard at first. I know her and recognize her, but it takes adjusting to feel comfortable with her again.

In other news, I saw a neurologist for my memory issues. He's ordering an eeg, MRI, memory test, and blood test. I'm most worried about the eeg. I don't know how long I have to wear it. And I see L in-person that week Like hell am I going to therapy with that stuff on me. I'm not leaving the house!

It's out here too. The sun is getting low in the sky and looks really strange.

It's too high up to affect our air quality...but it does occur to me that masks can protect against more than one problem.

Thanks una. I read side effects online about it and was ticking them off one by one he's got most of 'em.

She ended up back at the emergency room a few days later and they were able to at least rule out the appendix that time. The decided it is just a horrific "stomach flu" that takes a long time to get over. The teacher next door to me got the same thing last week and he still hasn't returned. Hopefully whatever is ailing your husband will run its course soon.

Thank you - I did not know that, will let him know.

Thanks Scarlet. I think I'm going to send an email to the doctor about it maybe they can change his meds up.

wishing you all the best with your tests.

I love that show! My wife and I both have huge crushes on the intelligent and charming Dorothy Kilgallen.
