I know that's probably what she meant, yeah, or at least she meant it as more complimentary than it hit my ears.

So, apparently, until I mentioned it to him, it didn't even occur to Dr. T that he could get picked to be on the jury for a trial. He said he thought the worst that could happen would be that he'd be stuck there all day Monday. Uh, does he not understand the purpose of jury duty? It's not just to go hang out in the courthouse for a day.

Wow, LT.

I've always considered Dr. T quite intelligent from your posts, but that seems like quite a lapse. I hope he doesn't get chosen...for both your sakes.

Well covering IOP T doesn't take my insurance and her cash pay is too high for me so back to the T that I saw on the 16th I guess. The older lady with the health problems who is taking off all of December. Why is it so hard to find a T? I guess my case manager got more days approved for IOP. I'm tired! I feel like I need a day off from everything, but I just had one! Now I know why a lot of people in my IOP program have taken leaves of absences from work! It's too much to try to work and do IOP!

It took me a more than a couple of years to stop smoking completely. You will do it. There are good tips online to help with this. It just takes persistence and not seeing smoking again as a failure after all its a physical dependency as well as a psychological one.

I have decided to get rid of my car it will save me $900 a year in insurance, $500 for rego and an untold amount in maintenance and petrol. It is 15 years old i bought it second hand and if i dont have it i wont be tempted to drive it and stress out about whether it will die in the middle of traffic. It just means i will need a taxi or uber to the doctors and getting the mobile vet in which might be a problem as they dont have nurses rhat can hold the bigger dog. There is no way i will spend $1400 a year in taxis so i am saving here. Grocery delivery is free for over a certain amount and i wont have to make multiple trips to shops because i was in too much pain to get everything i need in one trip. So i think i am making a good decision. This will mean more money for my garden and other hobbies.

I like your thinking. If public transportation was reliable where I live, I would sell mine in a heartbeat.

We have an ok public transport system but the bus stops dont have shelters and many dont have seating and i cant stand in the tropical heat for that long plus the walk to the bus stop is bit too far for what my legs will do. The only downside is i wont be able to go for a drive when i feel like it just to look around which is a great distraction for me but i will fill this need in with hobbies.

Lol, thanks! I think this might be a case of having book smarts, but lacking in common sense.

Sorry, Kit. Could you consider trying that other T who go back to you? So at least you'd have someone for December? Hugs...

I did this several years ago. You might consider getting a chair-walker - its a walker that converts to a seat. A guy near me uses one to get to the bus, he has trouble breathing.

I like having the uber take me to & from the dentist, im kinda shaky when i get out sometimes.

D's teacher told H when he picked her up that she'd had a rough day and that she would email us about it. Kinda dreading the email... I was going to email her anyway to ask how D was doing (which H told her). So now I wonder if she's waiting for me to email? If I don't hear from her by tomorrow morning, I'll send something. I was just talking about this topic with Dr. T today, too, concerns about how she's doing in school. And how in past years, we've had lots of communication back and forth. But not much this year so far.

Good thinking about the chair walker but then i would have to admit that i am disabled which isnt in my childhood programming. I have complicated feelings about my disability as i never let myself see it. Its hard to explain. I want to be able to access these things but i wont let myself.
