Hi everyone,

I haven't been on in a while because my fingers were very sore and stiff from all the looking through my medical records and things like that for my ssd case, followed shortly by the complete inability to use my right arm from shoulder to fingers. The first 4-5 days were the worst, but I figured I should let it rest completely before really using it again. Good as normal today, but have a couple of errands I must do today, so I expect that to change by the end of the day. Shopping trips are always exhausting, even short ones. Today I need to get my kitty food and a few other items. I don't go alone because I never know when I will get short of breath or light headed or feel like passing out. And some days the grannies go faster than I do (no offense meant to them). Most days I worry about getting another pneumothorax (hole in my lung), but the doctors said there isn't really anything I can do to prevent it, so im just stressing myself out over something I cant control, but ive gotten better about that too. Anyway, hope everyone is well, were about to get some more snow in NY so that will be fun...ttyl

Good to hear from you, Josie. I hope the shopping went okay and without incident. Keep warm in the snow!
