Hello Peter. I too have been sneezing and wheezing, but I have no temperature and I feel pretty good. In my case it's probably due to allergies brought on by the up's and downs of temp lately. I hope that yours is just a simple cold. Take Care. paul m

 No it likely isnt but who wants to go out with those things going on and watch as everyone looks at you. Even though things are not blooming yet there are lots of things in the air these days. Hope you feel better soon.

When I got up today, I was sneezing like crazy, and the runniest nose I've ever had!  I was really alarmed!

I was afraid to get on the bus/go to the barbershop like that.


I was much better after a couple of hours....

I don't think those are corona symptoms...?


Peter

I'm 74 (years young :P) in June.



Hard to find hand sanitizer in stores!

My medications were changed a bit recently, as my heart was still fast, and weak...

I'm getting an ECG soon to see if the med change made a difference.

My procedure "ablation" is the end of March.....probably..


I originally said I wanted a general anesthetic so I'll be out like a light.
I changed my mind - I'll go out of my comfort zone, and get a local anesthetic, which is the usual way of doing it.
Sorry if you can hear me screaming all the way from St. Mikes.... :o

A guy on my floor had something very similar with NO anesthetic.....he said it was a cinch, and he could see his heart pumping on a tv screen during the procedure!

Hello Momfeelinglost.  Rant all you like.No need to apologize. The system sucks.  I was lucky and I was able to collect CPPD while my wife worked.(minimum wage). I have no idea on how families make ends meet on ODSP. They should be given a medal, not problems or comments . Take Care. paul m

 My son is now home less one toe and still two more in danger. While he is doing well going by bus to get dressings changed while having an open wound has been a concern. As I said he is on ODSP so money is always tight. Keeping my fingers crossed that nothing else happens going forward. I just don't understand why they need to take such a hard line for things that matter. Yes he is a grown 6 ft adult who outwardly looks just fine. The things that go on inside his head and the struggles he still has can't been seen by the naked eye. We just can't let supports fall threw the cracks and while I will always advocate for him when needed, I am getting older and have my own health concerns so can't do what I did when I was well. Sorry for the rant. But sometimes we all need a safe place to just let it out. This is one of the only place I can count on. Thanks to all who responded know that I value each and every one of you who took the time to read and or respond it makes me feel less alone
