      Hi Babe. Yes, I noticed that you disappeared. I’m good, just needed 6 months off. How are you Are you OK?

      1. Outlier Babe says:

        I’m basically okay, Iris, thank you. Just over-challenged by circumstances and still in need of withdrawal to deal with them. Are YOU okay?

        I’m good now. I was spending 10 hours a day on the laptop. Eating too much, sent my diabetes out of control. Then I went into exercise mode and went into extreme knee pain. Doc sent me to orthopedic doc where I found out I had bone spurs under my arthritic kneecaps. Two knees, 3 bone spurs. 3 months of physical therapy twice a week. Blah blah blah etc. Just didn’t want to deal with blogging. I started coming back slowly in August.

        I get it. I was chained to the laptop, and when I do return to WP, will need to find a way to strike a balance. Have had three surgeries during my absence (one plus two re-dos of the one, thanks to lupus) and much continued bad luck magnetism–including more shite from the evil AT&T. Blogging was/is too much besides.

        Diabetes is no joke, and bone spurs–OUCH. Very glad you are doing better, Iris!
