    Looking For

    I have the same issue with a woman named Yvonne Connaly
  2. Apparently I can still see the threads but not the posts. This may be my favorite pcom feature.
  3. I've been a member for about 5 years and finally had to put someone on ignore. Of course now the new thread count has dropped by half.
  4. And then there are people who have been in and out of rehabs, who have been sent to counseling, put on anti-depressants, yet still decided to use. Addiction is a horrible disease that wrecks everything in its path. Some people just refuse to see they have a problem. As to the heroin, apparently it has been very popular for quite a while back where I'm from. I've heard of so many classmates that have overdosed in the last few years. And we're talking about a lily white middle class suburb of Cincinnati. When I was growing up the worst I heard about was kids drinking underage, and some tryi
  5. I took Bactrim (I think that's what it was called) after my second c-section. I was close to the end of recovery and started showing signs of infection so they put me on it. I was on a 10 day regiment, and on day 7 I started getting a weird rash. It was warm, and I thought it might be just a heat rash. The next day my face started to burn and my lips were burning bad. Later that day I started having pain all over my lower body, my legs hurt so bad that I couldn't keep them still. I just kept moving them to make the pain stop. We were away from home and I called my doctor and she said to stop t
  6. thanks for including that last point. My MIL is doing this and I was considering asking my doctor about it, but knowing that I'm allergic to sulfur drugs I'll pass. The one time I tool a sulfa antibiotic I ended up in the ER.
  7. Rise of the machines! And to the paperless comment. I am using probably 90% less paper now than I was 5 years ago in the same type of work. Not to mention bill pay I do on line where I don't write checks. I still like to get bills in the mail as a reminder though.
  8. This looks like a case of an infant being in a car seat in a basket and not being strapped into the car seat. That's just dumb. If my kids were in the car seat in the cart they were strapped in to the carrier. Right now my oldest refuses to get in a buggy, but the youngest one sits in the seat.
  9. I currently have a job, and haven't really been looking for a while. My husband is looking, but the Dothan job market isn't great. He's got two possibilities but they are low paying, and not ideal.
  10. If the economy was doing great it wouldn't matter what their business model was. Obviously I'm being facetious.
  11. No, I'm not ok with that. The difference is my kids didn't ask to be born into the situation we are in. I don't think that any child should have to suffer because their parents can't afford basics. Especially in my case where my daughter needs to see specialists for her heart and for her vision. So it bothers me, but not as much as it does when grown adults have their insurance subsidized. Again, I was paying for insurance before this. It didn't cover what the government mandated, but it worked for me and my family. I could pay my way then. I can't as it is now. So you took a family of 4
  12. Because I don't believe that health insurance is a right. I certainly don't think that it is something that someone else should have to pay for on my behalf. We were paying for my husband to have this same insurance until January. Now instead of paying that we are paying less, so who picks up the difference? Why should I be a burden on someone else?
  13. And this is when I wish I didn't live in the middle of nowhere. I hate not haven the option to stream things. It eats up our internet just to watch a youtube.
  14. I realize your being facetious, but you're confusing people.
  15. I started taking these a couple of days ago, but my bottle tells me to take 1 pill 30 minutes before breakfast and 1 pill 30 minutes before dinner. I just checked the bottle and it does say you can take up to 3 which would add one 30 minutes before lunch I guess. That would make the total 2,400 mg a day. My tablets are 800 mg each. So right now I'm taking 1,600 a day. Might try and up it to the 2,400.
  16. Well that escalated quickly. I hear the guy said he was texting his 3 year old. That's a pretty advanced three year old that can read text messages.
  17. To be clear, we could afford the insurance we had, which we bought as individuals. It was not through my husbands work. When he lost his job our daughters went on medicaid and both my husband and I had individual policies through BCBS. His was a regular policy, mine was major medical. We were fine with keeping that and paying those 2 premiums. We got a letter from BCBS saying if we wanted to stay insured with the minimum policy that they offered our premiums would increase. We could no longer afford those premiums so as of Jan 1st we had no insurance. I applied under obamacare and that's when
  18. Either I have a familiar looking face, or my twin follows me wherever I go. When I lived in Paulding I always got that I looked like someone that someone knew. I've had it happen down here, just not as much. People always come up to me and say "I know you from somewhere." Just finished looking at the link. Most look like they could be related, but not twins. Some did look very similar. How did he go about finding people that looked alike?
  19. That's the part of this that concerns me. If he gets a job that doesn't have benefits then I assume we stay on this, and call to see what the adjusted premium is? If we don't get an adjusted premium after he finds work and he has an income and our projected income is greater than predicted then we will own money come tax time.
  20. I finally called their 800 number on Friday to determine if they received my paper application that I mailed 3 weeks ago. They told me their systems were down and to call back. I called back today. They had both my electronic application and my paper application. The person on the phone told me we were eligible for a $414 a month tax credit. Some background, my husband is currently out of work and I am our only income source. My daughters have been on, and will continue to be on medicaid. Our monthly premium for a Blue Silver plan will be $82.73 a month, and that is with my husband being a smo
  21. If he has the "responsibility" to tell people things like this then he's at fault if he doesn't. I'm saying that he has no "responsibility" to tell me not to walk on ice or stand under a tree. It's just a bonus if he does. His job it to tell me what the weather will be like. But yet again you turn to a personal attack and ask if I'm an adult when you know I am.
  22. That's been hard for me. Since I'm not in the office, and my office is in my home, when the company owner texts me at 6 pm on a Friday and asks me to get something out to a client instead of it waiting until Monday I have a hard time finding a reason not to do it. Although I know if I was in the office I never would have gotten that request. But on the other hand I can leave in the middle of the day to take my daughter to a DR appointment, get my laundry done while I work, and not commute. So I guess you take the good with the bad.
