I HATE when pain keeps me awake!! I need to go food shopping in 6 hours. If I don't go early it gets crazy and I can't get a parking spot.


You have my sympathies!

I’ve been up most of the night.

Every position I try makes something hurt. :(

That was me night before last, and I had to drive 2.5 hours 1 way and then back yesterday. At least I only woke up once last night due to pain somewhere.



Hopefully tonight will be better for you!

Thank you. What makes it worse is the rain.

I wish everyone a pain free day and night!

Pain. I can relate. My back and one knee have been non stop. Dr. appt last week I found out why my knee has been so painful. He said I have severe arthritis with bone on bone contact inside the knee. No wonder it hurts. Candidate for knee replacement but I'll delay that as long as possible. He warned me knee replacement is one of the most painful surgeries and it has a 3 to 6 month recoup time. From all surgeries I've seen and experienced it helps with the problem but we are never back to what we used to call 'normal'. Such is the story of growing older. On the plus side, the pain has not impacted my sleep as much as it has you guys. Best wishes with getting some quality shut eye.

I've got a rant about dealing with Craigslist service providers. Too mad right now to come across as sane

Over my mad now :D

Rant:

I contacted a person on Craigslist to trim some shrubs, clean up, and haul off the debris. He gave me a price of $25/hr. I thought that was fair, so we talked about date/time, etc. The next day he e-mailed back and said there would be a $50 haul off fee added because the dump fees has risen. That reeked of a bait and switch maneuver to me. I just told him to forget it.

In all fairness to Craigslist, I did use a tile setter who I found on there, and he did an excellent job for a fair price.

You just never know who you're going to get on there.

I've been on the phone dealing with my medical insurance provider. My Primary Care Provider has decided to pack up his stethoscope and go home. Insurance co sent me a letter saying that they would choose me a new PCP, so I just decided to wait and see who they chose.

They did a real good job picking...NOT. They chose one about 200 miles away. How ignorant is that :eek:.

We must have the same insurance. When I moved last fall I changed my address. Got a letter back suggesting a gentleman in Conroe. Hundreds of miles from here. Clay County - Conroe must be close start with the same letter :lmao:

When I was about 16 or 17 yrs old, I just wanted to be older. At about 34 or 35, I just wanted to be younger. Now, I just want to be older again...bring on the Medicare. I'm so tired of dealing with all the ins co BS.

I’ve been on medicare 7 years. It comes with a new set of rules though so you deal with both them and the supplemental insurance company :bonk:

Rant - I had tree trimmers out here yesterday. When they were finally finished, I gave the guy a check. He handed it back and asked if I would make it out to Jose instead of Javier. Javier was on his business card. He told me that his father was Javier and no longer worked so he took over the business. I didn't like it, got a little suspicious, but did it anyway. I was just so ready for them to go.

Had some time this afternoon, got curious, and did a judicial search....OMG. Yeah, Dad no longer works for a very good reason o_O. Son's record wasn't so stellar either.

Edit to add: He did a very good job. I was happy. He was highly recommended

We have a nice but old Amana refrigerator. It was making a knocking noise so finally got a certified repairman in to look at it. He had us order a 600 dollar part which he replaced. The knocking quit but now the thing freezes veg in the veg drawer. She replaced veg the other day, today it’s frozen - two heads of expensive romaine and a big stalk Of celery. The celery was made into a yuge batch of cream of celery soup but the lettuce had to be tossed. I’d of made Wilted lettuce if I was mobile. We’ve tried adjusting the temperature to no avail.

Pretty sure my fridge cost less than $600. But that was maybe 11 years ago.

Wilted lettuce out of frozen Romaine? I would have liked to have seen that. :popcorn:

I had the same thing with my new LG
It was under warranty, so the Man came out Hahahaha..... ( like when Andy Griffith said to Aunt Bea ),
'Call The Man!" when the freezer broke down.. She was going to have Gomer look at it!
The Man changed the Damper Door. Next day.... 31 Degrees in the box. Come to find out, the temp setting was set too low.
It works by the more bars shown on the control panel setting, is the colder setpoint. Normally, one would think to set warmer, it would correlate to 1 b ar = lowest. and 7 bar highest. I would say, 7 is higher than 1? Well guess what? LG hqs it reversed.
BTW.... the damper door, opens and closes, to allow freezer air, to be blown into the medium temp section to regulate and control the temperature. Lots of luck!
