Spring Break Hell

Sooooo.... I spent over 30 minutes on the phone with my favorite hardware store to bash this morning trying to find a standard sized sink that really will fit in the standard sized hole in my almost installed counter top, only to learn that the damaged sink I exchanged yesterday for a standard sized replacement that did NOT fit in the standard sized hole in my almost installed counter top. After procuring a nice price reduction in the damaged sink I prepared to return to the store but then was told that the damaged sink had been destroyed that morning since it was damaged.
REALLY?
No. I believe that the damaged sink was taken home by someone else for a discounted price. But, I am not going to impose my conspiracy theory mindset on innocent store employees.
Instead, I traveled to the store to be told that they had nothing to address my situation. The computer system was not working and locating a new sink was going to be a challenge. Hello! Why do we need a computer system to locate an item that could easily be found by visiting the storage room? But, I won't get on my technology soapbox.
 I am just worn out on the whole kitchen remake. I know that it will all work out eventually and I truly am grateful for the little quirks like the amazingly discounted sink that was finally located in PA. It won't be delivered until mid-week, but a visit to the local thrift shop helped me stock up on paper/plastic eating utensils until I can wash dishes again.
This has become a ramble fest and all about the negative aspects of my day.
Looking at the bright side: Operation Pandora's Box is now available on Amazon and will be Kindle ready in a few hours.
I cannot believe that I have authored and published THREE books. That's awesome with or without a kitchen sink.

CBD and MS

We warriors are a resilient breed. After speaking extensively with a CBD enthusiast over the weekend, i finally bit the bullet and bought the "good" stuff...all in the name of research. Things have changed a bit since my first CBD experience, including the flavor. This particular product comes in natural (an earthy flavor), peppermint (self-explanatory), and cinnamon (Yum!).Because particular brand (Hempworx) has ONLY two ingredients : CDB and hemp seed oil.   I decided to document my experience here, so if any of you are interested we can discuss our personal journeys. As you all know, MS is an expensive condition that requires careful thought to additional treatments and related expenditures, most of which are not recognized by insurance companies and/or medical professionals; so, every experience is a financial gamble. I started my new "treatment" on Saturday, October 26, 2019. The instructions direct you to take two-three drops under the tongue twice a

ABCD...CBD

Week two of my latest MS  extinction adventure.. CBD oil. What exactly is it supposed to do? I'm told that individuals who imbibe in one form or another experience less physical pain and possibly a calming sense of self. Some have also tossed one or more or many to all of their prescribed medications in favor of CBD,  My biggest question is "How do you know which of the table cover of pills do you eliminate?" I am  not much of a dare devil any more and my pocketbook isn't equipped for extensive experimentation. remember I have a college freshman to support. (Oh, and he's doing fine so far; Thanks for asking. More about that later.) It makes the most sense to me to play with the mood maintenance first. I take 50 MG of Sertralin each night before bed. It is fairly good at keeping me on an even keel. I've missed doses before and it becomes crystal, as in clear, after twenty four hours that my system is missing something.                                 

JusT NOT FeeliNg my Best

JUsT not Feeling My BesT It’s one of THOSE days. Foot drop is really P…..g me off. Balance has taken an unexpected vacation. And to top it off, I get to go to every lady’s favorite doctor visit tomorrow morn. Yep. It’s mammo time for Lisa. Yeehaw! Photo by National Cancer Institute on  Unsplash Look at that technician smiling like this is the most fun ev-er. Or is she laughing ‘cause that’s not her mammary being pancaked at early o'clock in the morning? So, with March going out like a lion tonight (71 degrees yesterday, snow forecast tomorrow), this is my April Fools Day gift. Not funny. But, seriously, getting a mammogram is probably one of the most important medical tests. Don’t forget to schedule yours. Because of COVID, mine has been re-scheduled twice. If you have had one of the vaccines, this article may interest you. I had my second vaccine in mid-February, so I think I’m safe to proceed. Doctors urge women to delay mammogram until 4–6 weeks after COVID-19 vaccine https://w
