Good Saturday Morning Chat Friends.

Hi Jill. :}^ I want to eat that bicycle! rofl Thanks for sharing.

Today, it's bright and sunny in Southern California. I hope the East Coasters, Gulf States and Caribbean, are drying out after all these hurricanes. Puerto Rico was hard hit. Thinking of these people. <3 <3 <3

Have a great weekend everybody.

I don't remember anyone (excuse me if I'm wrong) welcoming
Fall, yesterday. It's my favorite season, but I know some people don't like it, like Carol.

YESTERDAY, I BOUGHT MY FIRST PUMPKIN OF FALL THIS YEAR.

Cute bike Jill.
Glad you welcomed Fall Marsha; I had thought the same thing yesterday. I like the cooler weather of fall but don't like the days getting shorter :wacko:
Trying to alter something is not easy. I'm struggling with this blouse. I love the fabric but chose the wrong pattern. Guess I need to just stick with the 3 styles I know are good.
Tonight we're going to an outdoor film festival of selections from the Telluride festival.

Hi Peeps,

Happy Fall! I love fall.

I can't remember when I last posted.

To catch you up I sold my 2-story townhouse because I can no longer do stairs and bought a similar sized 1-story mobile home. The park is pretty quiet.

My skeletal disorder has worsened to the point where I can't hold my head up straight and I cannot sit upright. I'm in pain 24/7 and the only tolerable positions are when I am reclining or lying down. I now have bone spurs in my feet, knees, hips, sciatic area, back, neck, hands and I believe head too. This disorder causes kyphosis - which is when you develop a curve in your neck with your head curving forward. I think that is beginning for me. It also causes the development of a hump back. Also, the calcifying of the bones causes fusions so range of motion will slowly diminish as that occurs. I cannot move side to side and I cannot move my left shoulder/arm.

I've seen my rheumatologist, primary doctor, orthopedic surgeon, and neurosurgeon and they all say there isn't anything they can do at this point. If they remove the bone spurs, they just grow back (with a vengeance I am told). Spinal surgery is so risky that I will need to be worse off before they will do it...worse off as in paralyzed or totally fused. I am scheduled in October to see a neurosurgeon who is expert in my condition. We'll see what he says.

Since November I have really been struggling to work and was only able to work 1-4 days a week. It has all become too much and I ended up quitting my job this past Monday. It is one of the scariest things I have ever done. I have long-term disability through my employer and I am applying for it. I also have pension retirement disability that I am applying for. Once I get an income coming in to keep the lights on and a roof over my head I will look into hiring a disability attorney and file for social security disability. That's the plan.

Truth be told I have been very sad, having a pity party. I am trying to not think about all that I have lost, the career, the lovely townhouse, the bucket list I won't be able to do. I am trying to not think about the scary future stuff. I am taking it day-by-day.

I have missed you all.

Hi Kathie and Praline. :}^

Dear Praline, I don't know what to say. You have really been through so much. My words just seem empty, but I do mean that you are thought of and truly missed, here on Chat. Sending hugs your way. :Hugs: <3 <3

Kathie, I sure miss posting pictures to go with how I'm feeling. I know Jill, has posted image.com, I think that was it. I haven't really explored that site yet, anyway, I forgot to get something at the store, and so I bought another pumpkin, when I went back today. :D
