Since last October there seems to have been nothing but problems. First we lost J-Land and were forced onto Blogger. Then a site I had belonged to for quite a few years suddenly shut down and I lost contact with a lot of friends.
In December I had bad blood sugar readings and I was put on an extra medication. I am due to testing again at the end of March. Then, Christmas was one of the most miserable I had ever known.
Surely the new year must be better. No, I have been having endless computer problems, no sooner one thing sorted out than something else arises.
Ten days ago, I went down with an awful bug. I caught it from Becky and it was three weeks before hers cleared up. So, I still have it and feel very under the weather. A couple of days ago I got a phone call from the surgery. It was my lovely nurse, Kim. She has been there seventeen years and has been my nurse for all that time, both for high blood pressure and for diabetes. She told me she is leaving. This hit me very hard and we both ended up in tears. She is the only one that truly understands me, my phobia about all things medical, there is nothing I could not talk to her about.
Now I will be under the other nurse. I only saw her once and she was extremely rude to me. So now my fears on the medical front have increased even more.
Last night the lovely Dean spent four hours trying to sort the computer out. To no avail. My aol software simply will not work anymore. It has been re-loaded, the router checked etc. My computer simply will not have it. It is also very slow to boot up and the processor is working flat out all the time which it should not be.
So, we have two choices, stripping everything off the computer and putting it back to how it left the factory in the hope that it works or purchase another computer. I think it will be the latter.
I am managing to write this through internet explorer. Now I shall be taking things off the computer, saving everything to the external hard drive and in a few weeks purchasing another computer.
Can I ask you all not to forward me anything in the meantime please. I can open ordinary e-mails through I.E. but would prefer if it was just kept to that.
So, last year ended on a sour note and, so far, this year is not much better. I keep telling myself things just have to improve but no signs of that right now. I hope I can shake off this bug and it will not result in my having to get anti-biotics which are not good for blood sugars.
I do not think I have ever felt so down. I ask for prayers from those of you that believe. The phone call from Kim was just about the last straw. She says it is not the place it was, she is no longer happy there and cannot take it any more. That surgery is certainly going downhill which is the last thing that I need.
So I need to get better. I need to start exercising again, I need to get this damned computer problem sorted out.
I will be back when all that is done. In the meantime I send you my love and best wishes, dear friends and readers.
