I hope it gets better for you. The first two I was aware of with people getting radiation, but not the last one. The strange smells must be really weird for you.



Hang in there and I'll keep keeping you both in my prayers.

Wonderful attitude Rosie. I really admire you for it. Here's hoping that someday soon something will come along. So many breakthroughs are being made every day in so many areas. Stinks about the cosmetic part. Insurance companies can be really stupid sometimes.

No there isn't and yet this morning while I went out to walk the dog I felt a few raindrops. I ran home as I had left my washing out on the line so the poor dog didn't get a walk, the washing didn't get wet and there was no further raindrops. good luck with your treatment Barking.

Sunny: I am sorry that I missed this: "Sunny, sorry to hear about the vision loss". Guess that I have been too preoccupied with my own stresses....

I am also VERY sorry to hear of your vision loss. That is devastating. Is there anything that they can do?

good idea, Barking. I am worried about dehydrating now, so, it would be good to get something to stop the flow so to speak.
