    Hi, I do know what you mean about cheated. I haven't had an easy life. I'm not bitter, but I'm tired. There have been times that people would say--God won't give you more than you can bear-carry. There have been times that I told God and people that God made a mistake. I'm not as strong as He thinks I am.

    People say that God is teaching me a lesson. I ask- What lesson? Tell me. I'd like to know.

    I had a colono-endoscopy Feb 9. I went to the pharmacy about 10 days before the 9th to pick up my monthly meds, so it wouldn't fall on my family, and I wouldn't be standing in line around sick people after the 9th A woman walked by-coughing and sneezing. Her companion reached out and touched her arm. I knew that it was something bad.

    I woke up in the recovery room without a voice-truely mute, horrible headache, high fever, coughing blood, nose and sinus running like a raging fever, extreme heart burn, high blood pressure, breathing problems, I should not have been sent home, as the more I recovered, the sicker and weaker I got. I was sent home. A few hours later I dehydrated and was vomiting black- projectile black from bile.My son took me to the ER

    2 weeks ago, I was told that there was a Whooping Cough epidemic-and I must have had Whooping Cough come full bloom during my procedure.

    They say that I'll still have coughing spells and times of bad voice until Christmas or so---- I'm getting physically strong--but it shouldn't have taken a week or so for me to get an appointment-they kept asking to speak to me, my son told them that I was unable to speak and they hung up on him--- Things like that.

    I am fatigued on so many levels.

      My handiman was deported. When he was young, he had some DWIs. He has an American X, and 4 American children that are now adult. He's a member of the roofers union too. He is honest-kind I spent years trying to get him to become an American. He thought that was silly.

      He's a great drywaller, painter. 8 years ago-him and me . stuccoed the house together. He was getting old and having health problems-our birthdays were the same. He has several sisters in Yucatan

      I have a dolly-I'm often moving 500 lb things, a garden wagon to put things in, and wheelbarrows I have a Levi for lifting, and moving furniture, but Levi isn't any good in texturing- and he's slow in painting--levi can and does put up ceiling fan/lights and he can put in new sink fixtures. and get them tightened down where they don't leak

      My son was in the hospital, and he said that he'd be home in a few days. I was washing towels, his bedding, his clothes, all sorts of things. I opened my son's door with an arm load of . bedding, and a flood of water ran out into the hallway. it was horrible- then my son calls and says that he'll need a ride home in about 2 hours. Then the front door pounded-and it was Chewy, home from Laredo. Somehow the main sewr pipe got plugged up, and it created a siphon in my son's toilet. My bathroom was dry as a bone-no water in the bathtub or anything.

      Anyway, i started getting my son's shoes, etc off the floor and out back to dry, while Chewy took my wet vac. I was throwing blanket on the floor to soak up and dry the carpet. The phone rings, and I need to pick my son up from the VA. Chewy and I moved everything out except the supe 4 poster bed.

      I go get my son--He asks how's everything with his cat and the hounds. I tell him that we need a plumber. he says, No-no plumber. I told him-- It's bad. We get home and Chewy is vacuuming away and water squirts up in the air with every step. My son calls the plumber.

      Chewy tells him the carpet has to come out or the house will be filled with black mold. The plumber says Home Depot has a good sale on carpet- Chewy says that he can put in asphaly tile the next day when it dries out. Chewy right off says-without measuring-you need so many boxes. So Chewy and I go and buy the tile. 2 days later, my son has a pretty new floor. Oh, when we put the wet carpet and the carpet padding in the truck-- the bed sank and water dripped out on the driveway. We hauled that to the dump, and the solid waste men said--What in H-ell happened what a mess. We should have paid Chewy about $800, at least, but my son was looking sick-so Chewy said Nothing-nothing- and we gave him $400. I paid him $30/hr for masonary work, but he works too fast, and I'd get mad at him.

      I don't think that I'll ever find a handman like Chewy.

      Meyati - that was quite an experience you had with the plumbing! And thank you for the warning. I've been getting some strange phone calls and lots of junk mail in the last 6 months. My phone is a Magic Jack and isn't listed anywhere. Someone told me to go on the internet and search for myself??!! Good Lord, there are so many sights that know so much about us. I've lived all over the country and all the cities were there. My current address with a google map and drone shot were displayed. My current phone number (the Magic Jack) was listed on a few. I'm going through and having it removed. It will take me forever. It's something I think we should all do on a regular basis. I will certainly be more diligent about giving my information out for online sweeps and surveys. Nothing is sacred anymore. I'll be on the lookout for NextDoor.

      The site has the name of nextdoor-then your town-neighborhood-, etc Mine is LaMesaNextdoor. They have an open page that can be read-but you have to join to open it.

      Cleaning up your history can be hard, as a person has to pay money. I guess that you can spend $25 or however much and use that to clean up
