Would love to hide out at home this week but must go. I have no fever (temp 97.0 this morning) and that is the criteria my doctor used to send me back to work. I noticed the inhaler I got as a "rescue inhaler" doesn't squirt out much of a mist... Read more

My daughter's second dress from Overstock was tight, also, and it appears that the made in China dress is cut too small in the chest area. She even ordered a 10 and she usually wears 5s. So back to the drawing board on her search for a dress. ... Read more

I saw my internist on Thursday and Strep culture was negative. Dr. did give me Rx for cough syrup to help with sleep (cough is waking me up at night) and she said I could use it at work as there is a minimal amount of codeine in 5 ml (1tsp). ... Read more
