TAKE YOU PICK LADIES. ((G))

number 5 is a very common misconception schizophrenia has nothing to do with multiple personality disorder as in the story the three faces of eve or Sybel to name a couple of stories that talk about the condition people with schizophrenia live in a different reality they may honestly see rats growing out of their skin they will also try and often succeed to divide a staff or a family your reality is not their reality

Prozac made me wilder than anything else ever did even Benzadrine which the dr. gave me a tablet of one time so i wouldn't go to sleep driving benzadrine is an amphetamine or upper i went to sleep about three times on the way over to the town he was in and it was just by the grace of god that i didn't wind up in the ditch Prozac is not supposed to do that to you but you can never tell what effect a medication will have on a person and the nurses in the group know how serious medication mistake can be

i made a remark one time in the business chat group that bonds were safer than stocks one of the other chatters said yes they are but they will never make you a milionare overnight but i remember when i bought a bond for $18 and in ten years i got $25 back it seems companies don't want to sell you something that they know they will eventually have to pay you back for

Re: JELLO

have you made powdered sugar icing where you mix powered sugar and butter then gradually add milk until it is the right consistency to spread on a cake add a package of jello to the powdered sugar and your icing will be the color and flavor of the jello we used it at halloween my mother would make cupckes for my halloween party half with chocolate icing half with orange we got the orange icing BY ADDING ORANGE JELLO more accurate than food coloring

Re: First love is dying, Would you go see him at hospital?

i as fortunate when my husband was in the hospital and going to have a pneumonectomy the people i had worked with in columbia came to get me and took me into columbia to the hospital so i could be there when he died about three years latter they took me from here to the visitation and to the funeral years earlier when my first husband had a quadruple bypass i was there and Bill my husband at that time would have thought strange if i hadn't he was the father of my children my first (boyfriend) we were too young to be serious i was 14 when he left his death was sudden and unexpected a naval battle in the Phillipines latter his brother used part of the $10,000 insurance to go over and see his grave he said jim really had a beautiful place even if i had been married if there had been any chance to see him i would have but like Mary and Martha i will see him at the resurection one time i heard an athiest talking about that incident he said why did jesus say Lazerus come forth implying that he wasn't really dead a boy in his Sunday school class said if he hadn't said Lazerus come forth everyone in the cemetary would have and some day he will call us all

afraid to tell someone something

when i was in the hospital i was in after i first had my stroke it seemed like every weekend something happened my husband had said do you think we can get by this weekend without any incidents then that Friday night when the nurse was teaching me how to transfer from the wheelchair to another seat it was in the shower room the board i was transfering to was wet my hand slipped and i went down and broke the paralized leg one of the aids told me afterwards my legs were all twisted under me anyway i thought how am i going to tell Bill about this i told him nothing would happen this week so when he called in the morning i told him i fell and my leg is bent the nurse took the phone away from me and said her leg is broken so for10 weeks i wore a cast and had to go to a nursing home because with the cast on i couldn't do the required time of rehab exercises but the first home i was in was not very good after i got the cast off i went back to the hospital for about a week then my daughter found the home where i am now i will be here 11 years this fall and baring a miracle the rest of my life and i'm only 75 but in everything there are blessings at least i can still think and keep in touch with my friends on the net i am so thankful for webt.v. i asked my son in law the other night about the price of a laptop he said they were more expensive than regular computers but he would keep his eye out for one they could afford so maybe someday i will actually have my own computer i don't know what else i could do with it goodness knows i wouldn't have room for a printer or a scanner at least with the web i don't have to worry about viruses

Re: WHAT A DUMMY I AM

when i was working our insurance was Moshers Missouri State employees and retires a very good insurance but one time they told us we could take an h.m.o. we had to chose a dr. that they had on their list bu it was only $5 for an office visit if you went to the hospital the most it would cost you in a year was $600 not bad for an extended hospital visit but all of a sudden they told us we would have to come back to moshers i learned later that that h.m.o. had gone banktrupt another insurance to be wary of is AARP my huband and i had taken it for a number of years then he had to have surgery a knee replacement after it was over we found out because the drs. that performed the surgery did not ccept medicare AARP would not pay not one cent left us with a $700 bill thankfully we did have the part of social security that covers you with insurance the part i object to is that in all of their advertising they never tell you that it was only when we put in our claim that they told us that

advice from Ann

i ran across some advice from ann the other day that some of our younger generation of girls might well take to heart it's about the relationship between the sexes

when i liked him i loved him

when i loved him i let him

when i let him i lost him


i know some may say oh that's so old fashioned but is it really how about some opinions on this or have things really changed so much so many of the young girls are pregnant now and seem proud of it

Re: MSN Took Over WebTV Today-I hope you had Grannies on F Key

i hate change and i always have and my first change was when i was 6 years old my grand mother and my great grandmother had died and we were going to move up and live with my grandfather i was used to the other house but i hated to leave my house i hid under the bed and my dad had to get one foot and drag me out but worst we crossed the street that devided the school districts i had just finished the first grade and i had to go to a different school i didn't get back to "my" school until the fifth grade that was in 1932 my folks had just built the house in 1928 and while we were gone they rented it for $25 a month do you remember those days then after i got married and was just getting used to living on a farm we moved from Illinois to Missouri nothing against Missouri it is a good state but i did get to go to l.p.n. school and made that my carreer then we had a nice home in Centralia and all of a sudden one morning i fell on my face and since then it hs been the hospital then the nursing home oh well looking at my astrology chart all the changes are not surprising Uranus the planet of change rules 5 of my other planets and i have another configuration in my chart that says you have a lot of lessons to learn so i know getting used to new things is the main thing i'm supposed to learn but i still don't like it
