Forum: worst sickness symptoms T-T
Ahhh Eskay,

We were just talking about not getting sick. This stinks!

Honestly, I really hate when I have to wipe my nose so constantly that it starts to hurt. I would rather have it plugged. I'm more of a mouth breather anyway.

But I don't think either are as bad as coughing with a sore throat or coughing with a headache.

The pain that my throat and head feel when trying to cough through soreness is pure torture. And not being able to sleep because every time I start to doze, I get tickles in my throat and another cough attack and then my head pounds harder. Yea, nightmare.

So on that note, I would rather my nose run and run or be plugged. A little bit of Vaseline helps the nose burn and I can breathe through my mouth. But nothing seems to help the pain of coughing with a sore throat or headache.

I hope you get better soon and have a lovely day!!

Forum: Have you ever taken pain pills?
Hi Falconmarie,

I've taken vicodin a couple of times in my life. And they pretty much had the same effect on me as they did you. They made me sleep, very heavily. And I woke up feeling groggy.

I was given them for my wisdom teeth removal (all 4, plus 4 mollars), and 2 different minor surgeries I had in the past. I took off of work each time as I knew the healing would take a couple of days, so I was kind of glad I was able to sleep through the misery.

I didn't get scared of getting addicted to the pain pills when I took them because I didn't like how they made me feel. I just liked the fact I didn't have much pain. If I remember correctly, I never even finished any of the prescriptions I had.

Other than those few occasions, I don't take any sort of pain pills. I'm pretty healthy but when I do have aches, pains or headaches, I can usually cure it with a heating pad, a massage from my husband and/or a nap.

Hope you heal fast and have a lovely day!!

Forum: Credit Scores...The Mysterious Magic Numbers.
Hi Heather,

The passed couple of years, I have been working really hard on improving my and my husband's credit score for the same reason. We would love to own a home one day.

My score is important to me, as is my husband's because his effects me too.

I have two major credit cards that I use to help build our credit's and they both allow me to keep up with our score's and alert me of any new activity. It only updates our score once a month but it sends an email immediately if there is any new activity.

I love the feature and definitely take advantage of it.

I don't think it's totally fair to do a credit check for jobs unless the job is handling money because someone who doesn't have good credit could be a darn good worker. But what do I know.

I think my credit score seems to be quite accurate for my debt to income radio. I do see it slowly rising though and it is so darn exiting.

Good luck and cheers to building our credit's ^▪^

Have a great day!!

Hi Karlie,

Glad to see you back! I saw you were on vacation with your brother. I hope you enjoyed your trip.

At this very moment I'm feeling a bit blah. It's still quite early and my coffee hasn't kicked in yet but I am looking forward to my day.

I have a busy day at work and this always excites me because it makes my day fly by. I have a couple of regular clients scheduled today too. They always make my day great.

We also took out the fall and Halloween decorations at work on Monday so I'm stoked to put those up.

Responding to this post has me excited for my day now. Thanks!!

Have a good one!!

Thanks for responding Christy. I really appreciate it. It is frightening but I do have hopes we will have this under wraps soon.

My husband isn't over weight but I am big on natural remedies and have tried so many different oils, diets, sleep positions, different pillows, 3 mattresses etc and nothings helped him. It's when I noticed he stops breathing that I became a wreck over this and made him do the study.

He indeed needs a machine to aid his breathing, it's figuring out which one will be best for him since he's a bit more complicated.

Early congratulations on your final win this afternoon. I really hope you still visit us and keep us posted on your journey.  Take care.

Forum: Unexpected Late Nights
Hi Destin,

Yes, I have had unexpected late nights. I actually had one last night.

I was helping my mom pack to move and between the ooh's and ahh's of reminiscing and deciding what to pack and what to get rid of, I didn't get home until 11:30pm. I'm usually sleeping by this time, if not getting in bed to go to sleep.

Luckily, Tuesday's are my day off of work, so I didn't have to get up super early like I usually do. But I have had days that I'm running on just a couple hours of sleep and it is not fun. Neither are those all nighters. I just can't handle it the way I could when I was younger.

Hope you get to catch up on your sleep tonight. Have a lovely evening.


Subject: Sleep Apnea...

Forum: Sleep Apnea...
Hi CNet friends. I just left a doctor appointment with my husband. He did a sleep apnea study two weeks ago and we got the results today. He has always had trouble sleeping but his results are scary.

He stopped breathing a total of 188 times for an average of 14 seconds, with 34 seconds being the longest time. His doctor is concerned that he may have central sleep apnea versus obstructive sleep apnea. The difference is that his brain is not sending the signals for him to breathe while he's sleeping.

He actually has to go back to do 1-3 more lab sleep studies to figure out which machine will correct the problem.

I'm just curious

Do you or anyone you know have sleep apnea issues?

How do you (or that person) deal with it?

Do you know anyone who has had to do the sleep study?

And if so, (and a machine was needed) does it seem to help? 

I look forward to reading responses and maybe learning a thing or two. I will be on Google doing some research also.

Have a great day!!

Forum: Going to the dentist: Are you a coward?
Hi Falconmarie,

I am horrible with keeping up with the dentist. I can't really say that I've had a horribly bad experience though.

My mom took me to the dentist every 6 months growing up. I had a few fillings but they didn't hurt. Then I turned 18 and got braces. That wasn't the most pleasant experience but I now have a straight smile and I love to smile so I would do it all over again.

I lost insurance when I turned 19 and pretty much stopped going to the dentist. I also went to a clinic a couple of times but they were actually professionals that donated their time.

It's been a good 2 years since I've last gone but I do actually have an appointment next month for a cleaning with a new dentist now that I have insurance. I'm a little nervous but hopefully it'll work out.

Have a great day!!


Subject: Re: Holiday Merchandise

Forum: Holiday Merchandise
Hi Melinda,

It drives me nuts to see things out so early!!

Don't get me wrong I absolute love the holiday's and I decorate for each occasion but I like to enjoy the season and holiday of the moment, ok maybe a little bit before.

But I don't like to see all these decorations months in advance and get burned out from it by the time the season or holiday comes *sigh*.

I cannot lie though, we did decorate for Halloween and fall this passed weekend. It was rainy and cold Saturday evening and just seemed fitting.

I like to enjoy the decor for a good month before the holiday. After Halloween, I will set up for thanksgiving. And then I usually decorate for Christmas on black Friday.

I love love love Christmas decorations!!

To answer your question, I think 4-6 weeks before a holiday is plenty of time for stores to display holiday merchandise. 3 month's is just ridiculous.

Have a great day!!


Subject: Re: Do you listen to music while studying?

Forum: Do you listen to music while studying?
Hi Raven,

Welcome to CNet!! ^▪^

I can totally relate to you. Music while I am studying, concentrating on something or trying to write is a huge distraction to me. I am actually really good at multitasking too. But I cannot multitask music or tv while concentrating on studying.

I love music almost any other time though. While cooking, cleaning, driving, working... now that I think of it, that's kind of weird. I can cut and color hair while listening to music but not study or write. Maybe it's because music and studying have to do with words. Hmmm. I don't know but I definitely cannot do it.

Great forum!! Have a lovely day!!
