  2. is tired& achey but otherwise feeling a bit more buoyant than usual!

  3. Awww...thank you, Peggy. Missed you, too. And I remember now that you also live with chronic pain. It's not a walk in the park, that's for sure. I actually had some quality sleep last night so I'm hoping for a better day. Take care, talk to you later. xo
  4. Thank you so much, Burma. That was beautiful and a very nice start to my day. But I'm also sorry that you have to endure FM and depression; neither is a laughing matter, and I find that a deepened depression and an FM flare-up usually overlap one another. Welcome to GALS and to the wonderful world of Gerry, by the way! Hugs for you, Christine
  5. Dearest Anna, I will never forget your kindness. I hope we can be friends again. I am so sorry for causing you pain almost three years ago. I ache because I hurt you and I am ashamed about how I acted. Please PM me if you want...I'd like to talk to you. Love, Christine xo

  6. Hi Peggy! Long time, no talk. I always look forward to your Christmas cards. Thank you for remembering me every year. I haven't sent cards in a while, and last year was tough because I lost my sister to a short yet intense illness. I am still grieving, but I also hope that her spirit will shine throughout the holidays. How are YOU? Hope to see you here on GALS soon...xoxo Christine

  7. Thank you, Christine! Welcome to the wonderful world of Gerrydom!
  8. Thank you so much, Elissa. It's nice to be back. Yes, it's been rough but whatever doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, right?
  9. Thank you so much, Andrea. Yes, it certainly does take a toll on one's emotions in addition to the body.
  10. Ooooh, I loved "Secretariat"! I'm such a horse fiend. I also bought the book, and it's just as wonderful as the movie. I love the way they filmed Big Red's win at the Belmont Stakes...thirty lengths, he resembled Pegasus! It still shocks and thrills me! Thank you, Mousie!!! I did see the preview for "The Bounty Hunter" but I never got around to seeing it in the theatre. I will dutifully rent all three as soon as possible! And thank you for the familial blessings. We appreciate them most assuredly.
  11. Wow. I just realized that Gerry's birthday is only a week and a day away! I contributed to the GALS fund via Paypal in honor of his 41st birthday. Love GALS, love Gerry!
  12. Hi everyone. I've been gone a very long time and am not sure if anyone remembers me at this point, but in the event that someone does, I'll just give you a synopsis of what's happened to me. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) in late '08. I was already on disability for emotional/mental difficulties, and this diagnosis depressed me more deeply than one can imagine. I want to find a part-time job, though ~ something involving animals ~ to get me out of my head and the house. What has depressed me most, however, is that I lost my precious sister, Ann, a year ago. She had MDS (Myelodysplastic Syndrome), an uncommon blood cancer also known as "pre-leukemia." She underwent a stem cell transfusion as my brother was her perfect match in that regard; she didn't want her condition to mushroom into leukemia. A year ago at this time she should have been feeling better and able to drive, et al. Instead she was in and out of the oncology ward and then, finally, in the ICU as her immune system could not withstand the newly harvested stem cells. She died right after I kissed her goodbye and left her with my brother-in-law. I miss her more than the English language will allow. She was my rock and my best friend. Now absence has its own zip code. I am currently living with my folks and my cats. Which reminds me that I also lost Aurora, my beautiful little minx, a day after my last birthday in March. I miss her terribly as well, but I adopted Benji (Benjamin) when he was two months old. Now he's eight months old and, along with Zoey, they are quite a loving duo. My parents' Russian Blue, Frodo, is also a fixture in the house. I haven't kept up with Gerry, though I've seen him in various previews of different movies. Can anyone recommend one of his latest films to me and I'll rent it? Thank you for reading my post and God bless all of you. I also apologize profusely to anyone whose toes may have been crushed the last time I was around. I have no excuse. I am sorry. Finally, Dr. Em sent me a congratulatory note as I've been a member of this forum for five years! I can't believe it's been that long! Love, Christine
  13. "Gerry's Private Dancin' Faery By Day, Guardian of the Scots' Thistle By Night" I liked the dancing Gerry-Tigger, Bethy!
  14. How about "Gerry's Private Dancin' Faery"? Not sure how to include the Thistle part of it, though.
  15. D, that happened to me as well. And the doctor, bless his heart, wrote off many fees because I thought I had coverage at the time of emergency surgery. UGH. I feel for you. Congratulations to Dawn! Is this her first baby? Prayers are being directed to Bryan right now. Thank you, BlueJean. I feel better today but now my dear sister, Ann, is in the hospital with a mysterious virus that really needs to be pinpointed and addressed. Fortunately, we've ruled out the severe diagnoses like leukemia (*breathing sigh of relief*) but there remains the fact that she's been chronically ill for a couple of months at this point and is finding it difficult to function. I'm keeping the faith...I know she will be okay...but I'm still scared. If any of you can include her in your prayers, I would greatly appreciate it. SHE would greatly appreciate it! XO
