    Anyone remember that Federal Tax Return that I had money coming back? I filed it back the later part of February and had not received my money. I refiled on June 22nd and wrote across the top that it was a duplicate. I also wrote a note that I attached to the front telling them it was a duplicate and that I figured the original probably got lost. Anyway, I stopped at my mail box yesterday when I went to the pharmacy and lo and behold there was a paper check for $547.00. I don't think the duplicate probably had had time to have any affect on this transaction, so I guess it just kind of crossed in the mail. Hope they figure that out.

    Ann, I know your Mother says she doesn't want any company right now. However how is your MIL holding out without going out? I know she looked forward to her weekend shopping trips with you and Peter.
    Virginia, my mom is completely with the protocol for someone 95. No one comes in. Deliveries are made to her front porch.

    Peter’s mother is another story. She doesn’t like the rules and has to be reminded about the mask and especially covering her nose. Her downstairs tenants are a bit lax, also. Today Peter supervised her in a nearly empty Walgreens. She touched nothing and didn’t buy anything. I do think it helped her to just go in. Peter did an elaborate hand sanitizer ceremony when they got back in the car. ;-). Next, she wanted to go to Bed and Bath which Peter nixed. Who knew that Walgreens was the gateway drug?

    Thanks for asking. Glad you finally got your taxes.

    I have seen several people wearing a mask, and only covering their mouth, but not their nose. One was a cashier at the grocery store where I shop. I wanted to tell her that's not how it's worn, but resisted the urge to tell her.

    I don't ever want to ask people why they're not wearing masks. Some people have medical reasons for not wearing them. Others may be making a statement of some kind ("Nobody is going to tell ME what to do!"), and if so, it might just make them more defiant and determined if someone comes along and asks why they're not wearing masks.

    But I hope somebody they genuinely respect--like their own doctor?--cautions them about the need for masks.

    Ann, Peter's Mom is just so active, it is amazing. Obviously, she just can't sit still or stay at home for very long. I wonder if she got the message with him going through the hand sanitizer bit with her.

    Today I did not swim. I made meatless lasagna for tomorrow since I have telemedicine tomorrow which will mess up my cooking time.I am beat. It feels like my legs are in one of those traps with teeth that they set out for raccoons. Pain is so tiring.

    Tomorrow is telemedicine with the neurologist. I cannot live like this with such pain...

    Oh, I am so sorry. Interesting what you say about pain being so tiring. I hope things improve for you.

    Sunshine, I hope you get some help tomorrow. I once asked an MS Specialist if he could do one thing to make my life with Trigeminal Neuralgia better and he did. He added a low dose of Nortriptyline in the evening. Big help w break through pain. I hope your doc can do something for you.

    With Stiff Person Syndrome, Tricyclics of which Pamelor is one, SNR’s and Duloxetine are all Not good for people with SPS, it worsens the stiffening, spasticity, spasms. So there is a narrow window of treatment for pain, depression and anxiety.
    I am on Buspar for anxiety, and suspect that is the reason for the decline with SPS. It coincides with starting it. Will discuss with doc.
