Seriously YAHOO?!?!?!


My God. I've only had me email account with since you started. I've watched over the years, get worse and worse. Why would anyone WANT to pay for your service? Why? It's not like they're getting anything better than the free service, they just don't get the awful, lag inducing ads.

I can log in, just fine. Got to my inbox, just fine. Click on a message to open it, no go. I get a "check your network connection or reload the page" error. Well, my connection works just fine. I've tried reloading the page, checking my connection, clearing my cache, etc. Still, no go.

So, I decided to call your 800 number (since I wouldn't be able to open a email from customer service). I go thru all the prompts, wait, then get told I'm being connected to a person, just to hear this: Due to high call volumes we won't be able to answer your call. *click*

And I called the number that paying customers are suppose to use.Come to find out, Yahoo has done an upgrade and everything is all screwed up.....yet again. Not just for free users but for everyone.

Ug. Every time I even come close to thinking about purchasing your service, you do something to remind me why I DON'T.

So thank you yet again Yahoo. The only reason I've stuck it out this long is because everyone knows that's my email address, but I've just about had it. Think I'll find a new service and start changing over. Maybe they'll appreciate it when a user has been around as long as I have.

I do have a Gmail address, maybe I'll start transferring everything to it and use it instead. god knows I've never had problems with it.

My health adventures...THE FINALE... sort of, lol

So where was I, hehe

My fabulous neurologist has been running all kinds of tests to figure out what is wrong with my legs, with no answers. So, he decided to to a biopsy of the muscle and main nerve in my right leg. That's the weakest one, it gives out all the time and almost throws me to the floor if I don't catch myself on something.
I had the biopsy on September 30. It's actual surgery, they knock you out and everything. You even have internal and external stitches. So I settled into 10 days of no walking and just laying on the couch. It really hurt especially the muscle the removed fro my upper thigh, ug. By I survived, mostly. They said it would be a couple months for  the results to come in because it gets sent off to the Mayo Clinic.

Much to my surprise they had the results in before I even got my stitches out, YAY!

I saw the neurologist. For some reason my immune system has gone all wonky and is attacking the nerves in my feet and legs (it's also beginning to effect my hands). This is going to be progressive, it will get worse.

 So we have to try to slow it down.He's starting me on a immune suppressive medication hoping my immune system will calm down and maybe even give the nerves a chance to repair themselves a bit. But that opens me up to a whole slew of other problems, while taking this medications I will be completely open to infection. And really bad infections are a huge side effect of this med. Makes it kind of scary. I'll have to be super careful around my nieces as they always have some sort of sniffle. My dad wants to buy me masks to wear when I go grocery shopping or to doctor appointments.

Not sure how I feel about doing this.

He didn't give what I have a name, so I still don't know exactly what I'm fighting. I like it to have a name. At least then I could join a support group and discuss with other people what I'm going thru. Would be nice to talk to someone about it.

Here's a list of my symptoms: liver irritation, anemia, neuropathy, dry skin (that might be the meds), itchy eyes, sometimes my eyes don't want to focus.

If that sounds like anything you've heard of, let me know. My doctors are pretty much open to testing me for anything, if it might bring a more specific answer.

Oh yeah and nose bleeds. I'm not just talking a dribble either. Once the nose bleed starts it goes on for 1-2.5 hours, yep hours. And it gushes. I've brought it up to my doctors, but they pretty much blow it off, but it's really irritating to me.

I'll try to keep updating as much as I can.I get a feeling when the new med kicks in, I may have to go thru an adjustment week or 2. But I'll try my damnedest.


Writin again

So I've decided to take up writing again online. I use to be really into it, then life got in the way. Its not really about money (tho that doesn't hurt) but I just enjoy it. I've been writing since I was 15. And its kind of a boost when you write some little something and it gets posted for the entire world. I've also been busy taking pictures of items that need new homes. I just can't get myself to throw out something that is hardly used. I've gone thru 4 full size plastic bins, only have 8 more to go, ug. I'll be posting links to my online sales sites and places where you can read my writing. Photobucket
