I hope it clears up quickly SonjaMarie, UTIs are just horrible, one of those things you can't escape from, like a toothache.

Have you tried taking a pro-biotic. I've heard they are good for things like that but don't take my word for it because I'm unfamiliar with these ailments. I do you hope you are on the mend soon!

I was trying that with the last antibiotics I was taking for my sinuses and it was making my OBS act up, so I stopped. I'm just having the worst luck lately!

Thanks ladies for the good wishes!

Hope you are feeling better, Sonja!

My antihistamine is not as non-drowsy as it is supposed to be. However, the itching is gone so I can live with being fuzzy-headed for a few more weeks if that is the price.

Wicked migraines. Mom warned me when I was a kid that they'd get worse as I got older, she wasn't kidding, sigh.

Hope your Dr. appt went well!

I'm back to fighting a virus I thought I had beat at Thanksgiving. Apparently it didn't go away and I'm not sure how to fight it.

I had a doctor's appt today. Been having a lot of little things that might be related. My usual doc was all booked up so I saw a new one, but I liked her. She was very thorough and ordered a bunch of tests. Have to have an ultrasound later in the month.

Nothing life-threatening. At least I don't think so. She didn't mention anything like that. A few highly treatable things came up as possibilities. I'm not worried.

Of much greater worst-ness are the migraines being back. I feel your pain, Sonja!

No question...Newton, CT. A man and his brother decided to kill their parents so they went to the parents' home and killed their father, then drove to the primary school where their mother taught kindergarten. One waited in the van while the other went in and killed not only their mother but at least 27 other people including most if not all of their mother's class and 7 other adults. The number of wounded is unknown at this point. The shooter is dead, the brother in custody.

What a horrible and senseless thing to do! And right during Hanukkah/before Christmas, Kwanzaa, and New Year's. How many families that should be celebrating will be grieving? How many gifts will go unopened? How many parents, siblings, pets, spouses, friends and other relatives will be shattered by this? How many police and medical workers will weep at what they see while they do their jobs, or when they get home afterwards? How many students and teachers will dread going back to that school, or be entirely unable to do so? And what kind of sick bastard murders kindergarteners?
