I work with special needs kids, many with the same diagnoses, along with ADHD. The meds change daily. My cousin is on Risperdol, along with other stuff, with the major side effect being weight gain for him. What kind of side effects do you have? Am wondering if there is something new for you? You might want to check with another doc.

Gack! I feel really bad for you.

Beware of FedEx SmartPost service.
Unfortunately many online vendors do not tell you they will be using Smartpost. Following is the routing info for a purchase I made from WeberStephens. Weber said they will re-ship using a different shipping service. FedEx has not provided a meaningful explanation in response to our telephone inquiries.

All shipment travel activity is displayed in local time for the location

Yikes! It's kind of like sitting at center court and watching a tennis game! It would be easier to understand if it at least kept moving toward the final destination, and not back and forth. Ridiculous!

It must have been a spherical package because it keeps going around and around...

well, here i am once again, all ready to go shopping. the mom of the little girl i am buying for called. they will be later, on way to costco. now we set the time yesterday for one p.m. i make it a point to be ready to go at the time stated. apparently no one thinks my time is valuable. this isn't the first time. gotta say it really ticks me off. will i say anything, probably not. she knows it is bad manners and doesn't seem to care. one day she put it off several times and then i just told her, to tired to go. she said "oh now i feel bad" evidently not bad enough as she repeats this behavior.

wow, now i feel better. young people sometimes think only of themselves.

I'm still steaming about my computer ink purchase. I checked for HP 60, and grabbed the two-pack, but when I got home, I found I had two color cartridges. Sneaky HP. Now I have to go back and purchase a black cartridge. (or two).

At least the printer runs with only one cartridge, but now my recipes are printed in green.

I adore my next door neighbour and her family. While we were away, we, as usual, let her use our parking spot right out front for any of her visitors. A nephew with a 5 ton parked in the spot but when he was leaving he accidentally backed into a tree across the street. This is the beautiful ball cedar that I always photograph each season to show the snow, sun, etc. and have put in threads here.

It was an accident, plain and simple. She went to the office and reported it saying she would pay any expenses. She feels terrible and I feel bad for her.

My vent is that I loved that bush and I cried when they chopped up today but I didn't want my neighbour to see because she feels bad enough. I am angry that the tree is gone, but am also concerned with her because other neighbours are not being so nice and I feel the need to defend her.

I know it is only a tree and I shouldn't get worked up about it.
