back to the Dr. for the 3rd time today and I have pneumonia still and also a bacterial infection that is triggering esophagus contractions during coughing which is leading to vomiting everything I eat, haven't been able to keep anything down for five days.... hope the new meds work and i promise to update everyone as I start to feel better & better
UPDATE 9/9 Just signing in since a week or so ago. Have had some medical and family problems to deal with. I am sending my partners info to let them know that their swap will be going out by this Saturday.
I have pneumonia and then today I coughed so hard that I broke 2 ribs. I have already contacted all of my partners who have swaps due from me, just wanted to also make a note here just in case.
Hi! I am a thirty-something stay at home mom to 3 wonderful kids (a boy, Caleb 13 yo, and two girls Harper 5 yo & Maryn 4 yo), two dogs (Fiona & Dega) and two kitties (Bad Kitty & Oreo). I married my high school sweetheart and we haven't looked back since.
I have recently (within the past 2 1/2 years) been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe depression & an anxiety disorder. One thing about swapbot, I truly believe it has saved my life and given me a sense of normalcy. Being able to occupy my time with creative endeavors helps me get through the manic parts of my bipolar disorder. â™¥â™¥â™¥Thank you swapbotâ™¥â™¥â™¥*
MY THOUGHTS ABOUT SWAPPING I really have loved every swap I have done so far. I always put a 120% into my swaps, most always adding in extra little goodies to make my partner smile. I really love the idea of making some one's day, making someone smile when they open their package! I also always leave feedback immediately when I receive a package. I send most of my U.S. swaps out with delivery confirmation or with insurance added SO, if you do NOT receive a swap from me PLEASE, PLEASE let me know before rating!
