Re: [MOL] Martha !



Hi, Lil,
 
Sorry but I don't think the food was very good and they did have to make their own beds.  I have a lot of good memories of the place, because most of the time, I could appreciate the humanness in people, no matter the problems they were having.  But I have a lot of rotten memories too. 
What it comes down to mostly, I guess, is that I saw, from my particular jobs, how deinstitutionalization of the mental hospitals was basically conducted by throwing people out on the street.
 
But enough of that;have to go help the little one with homework.  I think we'll have to keep hoping for winning the Irish Sweepstakes.  We have at least some chance..my dad enters all those things.
 
My adrenals are OK, as far as I know.  But I think my Arimidex somehow effects estrogen cells that come from the adrenals.  I'm not sure; I'll have to look that up again.
 
Have a blessed Sunday.
 
Your friend,
 
Martha

talking to them, because they won't understand anyway.
Do they have to make their own beds?  How's the food?  I could go with a stint of no responsibility, say six months for a free vacation?
 
Tell me, has your thyroid affected your adrenal glands at all? I no longer have a thyroid at all, it just shriviled up and died along with very serious adrenal glands damage.  I am thankful that I have come down with diabetics considering it is in my family.  Your friend, lillian
