Pat's words, taken from a PM. The full PM remains tucked in my wallet & accompanies me everywhere I go:
                           
                         "...Words cannot explain how important this thread has become to me and many others. Your terrible struggle shared by Ann and of course the rocky road your precious Jane traveled became a touchstone for me and I felt a closeness to all of you and our fellow travelers aboard the Rainbow. We have so many here that offer so much of themselves it has buoyed my spirits and my sense of friendship in a way I would never have believed possible in the cyber world. To this my contribution always felt so small and the only tools I have in hand are a sincere empathy for my friends and a strange, warped' and often too quick, sense of humor. I live with the words of two men always in mind:

There is only what is. What should be never existed......Lenny Bruce

If I laugh at any mortal thing, tis that I may not weep......Lord Byron..."

    WOW......First to Wendy with my thanks for such a wonderful post.

    AND SINS!!!!! Simply unbelievable is all I can say but I do have some inkling of how you feel. May the feeling hold and get even better.

    Bottom dropped out for me the day after I posted but we're coming back. Not sure where the problem is, whether I lost the balance or the daccogen has some strange twists to it.....Whatever it is I got a couple of pints and and we're going along fine.

    NEED GOOD AND GOODER THOUGHTs FOR OLD DUDE !!!!

    Dan is going in Friday for a single bypass surgery. I would have hoped the Robotic surgeries would have been everywhere by now but they will be cracking his chest which takes some recovery time. Stint doesn't do it so....Let's all send some good vibes to St. Vincent's Hospital in Erie, Pennsylvania for our old friend. I love this guy a lot and I know you do too.

Thank you for your good wishes, all passed on to Ann. 'Birthday Bash' was something of a misnomer. Once Ann has worked her way through the 'six hours behind', we'll probably go to Tomassi's in Southend-on-Sea for a leisurely lunch. Good mains & more homemade, Italian ice-cream for desert than you've ever dreamed of! She's currently unpacking...it's 16:50 our time. I think she might just make it to supper, plus an extra hour or so & then, in the words of my Dear Departed Grandmother: "Up the wooden stairs to bedfordshire".
                                          Much Love to all,
                                                                     Nigel & Ann.

Hi,

Thanks ChanteyLass. With New Moon being during the day and me working in a school there's fairly good coverage where that is concerned. (-:

Oh: "who doesn't look funny" should probably be read as "who doesn't give me funny looks". I'm rarely talking with clowns or mimes about things like this.

Hi,

Yes, I guess they are panic attacks of a kind, as people with Asperger syndrome are indeed supposed to get. But since by now I know what causes them, I can mostly handle them.

E.g., I just found that something in my shopping bag had leaked a bit. On 27 days of the moon I'd wipe every item as I take it out of the bag (regardless of whether it needs it), and throw the bag in the laundry. At Full Moon, I'm likely to take a more active solution, like moving the contents of all items to other containers, so I can dump all the packaging immediately. At New Moon, I may leave the shopping bag as being impossible. (The next day, I'll rescue what I can.)

I did look into this one, but it's hard enough to find someone who doesn't look funny when I say the Full Moon influences my daily cycle. If I were to say those panic attacks Asperger literature talks about are actually New Moon-related, the reaction might for me be hard to cope with.

Anyway, not to worry: It's only once or twice a year that I notice it's New Moon from the scare I'm having, and this was a bad one, as such scares go. But thanks for the advice.

Bye

Mysha, panic attacks (which is what this sounds like) can be minimized or alleviated. See a good psychologist, preferably one trained in Cognitive Behavior Therapy or Prolonged Exposure Therapy -- both work.

Hi,

Thanks, keberoxu. I think the wry wit scares some people, so, I'm happy to see it's also appreciated in some way.

I actually had one of the worst New Moon scares since years this week. Nothing medical, though: Suddenly all this clearing the house seemed completely impossible. Fortunately, one of my colleagues from work was in the house with me and she helped me stay active, though it was very confusing. All good again the next day. (-: I often wonder how other people feel a New Moon. Are any of you more panicky when it's New Moon? (Or vv., mm..)

And congratulate Tommy with his 940th septimanaversary. Or was that yesterday? I get confused with the time-zones, sometimes.

Bye,

Sending my love to all of the above, good healing thoughts to everyone in need.

Had to get new locks on the salon door this morning, some "kind sole" had tried to jemmy open the door in the middle of the night, no real damage done but made me quite cross. There have been a number of break ins in the Frinton shops over the past few weeks, very unusual but we live in unusual times don't we?

onward and upwards, going to a music session in Walton this evening, dare I sing, such a long time since I have.... but maybe

fondest love

She was out of surgery and recovery around noon; about 1 p.m. she arrived in the hospital room. She'll be there at least tonight. The surgeon said all went well and she believes that there was no spread beyond the original place. A "simple" mastectomy was done, i.e., the chest wall muscles, etc., weren't touched.

When I left she had just awakened from a nap of 90 minutes or so and the massive headache she had after surgery had abated to the point of tolerance.

Fifth bout with cancer and the first recurrence.

Going to dinner and then back to the hospital.
