Someone reminded me of this.

He had leukemia, but no pain, and he knew he was dying.  (there are different types of leukemia)

I knew it was June 24, but (this isn't logical....).....I keep thinking June 24 was "a few months ago."   ::)

I had 4 brothers (no sisters) - now I have two, and one has Alzheimers.

I'm 74 1/2, so not THAT unusual that people around my age would fade away.


I'm lucky - overweight smoking parents lived fairly long.

Hi, E.....That was the virtual meeting, just out of curiosity?  I'm not interested in attending, as I'm not bipolar.

When I was in Laughing like Crazy, virtually everyone in it was bipolar.


MDAO should announce on the front page that the online support group is open again.

General Discussion / PM people on MDAO forum....

I wish you could PM people here to say hi/remind them that the forum is open.   :)

Oh well....

LOL - I also take an acid reducer, cholesterol med, 2 or 3 blood pressure meds.  A couple of others.

My nephrologist added a tiny amount of another blood pressure med to get my blood pressure under 120, which it is :)

My former nurse practitioner, if my b.p. was around 130, she thought that was great.  The nephrologist thinks that's really high.


I should try attending a different support group here one of these days.

Hi, Rich....Sorry to hear about your troubles.

I'm still around.  I last posted a few weeks ago.

Hi, Rich.....

I take 10 meds, 2 of which are antidepressants:  Wellbutrin, Mirtazapine.

I like Mirtazapine.  Wellbutrin, I'm not sure it still works.  I tell Dr's, and all I get is "keep taking it."

My 10 meds - not as bad as it sounds:  my cholesterol med, I BARELY need, stomach acid reducer I could maybe do without.

My 3 heart meds - I no longer have a minor heart ailment, but cardiologist says to keep taking them forever.


Hi, Steph, and welcome!

The MDAO has online support groups via Zoom.  I keep forgetting to try one.

Btw, we used to have outings the odd time.  Nice to meet forum people in person!

Hi, Quang...Nice to hear from you!  Now I know the forum is working again.

I'm coping - I'm bothered by Covid, but not extremely so.  I still go out shopping etc.

I have your business card in front of me...."Quang Vu Mai."

I emailed the MDAO a while ago to let them now that the moderator of the forum passed away.
Paul Morton passed away on January 22.  Probably from throat cancer, according to the person who told me.
I met him in person a few times.

hi, mom....Keep us up to date on this situation.

I can't think of any suggestions.


HSG, thanks for checking in!

I've been helped by CBT.  I haven't filled out any of the forms in ages.  :-[

...but you reminded me to.


I'm less affected by this lately.
