My dear friend's mother passed away on Friday. She had been suffering from COPD for the last few years. She was a petite lady, with a dry sense of humor. My friend has been caring for her mother for the last year or so. She would stop every nigh... Read more

That it is illegal to resell a hearing aid? That is what I was told today. I called the audiologist where my mother got her hearing aid. Asked if I could return it or it could be repurposed. She told me it was illegal to sell a used hearing aid.... Read more

I slept for several hours last night and actually felt refreshed when I awoke today. I was determined to have a good, productive day. It turned out that way - mostly. I ate in range today, something that I haven't done much this year. Got i... Read more

Today started out okay and went down hill quickly. I cannot say why. I don't know what happened. I was okay until I walked into work and it was downhill from there. I was tired all day. I did meet a friend for lunch and told her about my mo... Read more

I definitely decided that I do better at work than at home. Yesterday I went to work and although people came by to say hi, I only broke down once. Today I am a mess. I thought I was good. Took the kitties to the groomer's. On the way home... Read more
