    I put off updates as long as I possibly can. The April 2018 update was treated no differently. Finally, my PC gave me no choice, I had to take the update. So, I covered my eyes and peeked out between my fingers and did the update. After an hour, it restarted and got an error "your PC has run into a problem and needs to restart" well it did that, then I get a message that said "restoring to a previous version of Windows. It did, and I was relieved. All this happened last night. So today, I get the same "Updates are ready" and no option to post pone. It went through the update, and the same exact thing "your PC has run into a problem and needs to restart" and then again the "restoring to a previous version of Windows"...does this mean that I will go through this every day? How do I fix this?

    I have a friend who had knee replacement surgery years ago in another state. The artificial knee that was put in is starting to deteriorate. He has pins that keep popping out and bulging under the skin that he has to painfully push back in place. He went to a knee surgeon here in our state. That surgeon said the knee will eventually fall apart and the only thing holding it in place now is sinew and muscle, and that he needed surgery, but this surgeon wont repair the knee because the surgery was done in another state. My friend has called two other surgeons and received the same bad news. He would have to go back to Alabama and have the knee fixed there and then spend 5 weeks going through therapy there. He cant afford to do that. Can anyone give me some options I can relay to him?

    I live in HUD approved Housing. I pay full rent because I am not on HUD yet, but i is income based apartments. Every year, we have to do re-certifications. This is where we verify our income, housing composition and such and resign our lease. my re-certification comes up in July, but all the information is due the beginning of June, and that is when I sign my documents. I have known it is coming up, and have started to collect the letters and such that I need and have even done the paperwork already and am just waiting on income letters from social security, because the info I got in January is too old. it needs to be 30 days or less old. Today, is 5/1/2018. I woke up to an eviction notice on my door. it states i was in non-compliance for my income verification and re-certification and i have 3 days to vacate. I went into panic mode as i am still waiting on the letters from social security. The housing manager said it is a scare tactic by the owner of the property to insure that people are not late. She said he was not even supposed to tell me it was a scare tactic, but she was trying to keep me from going into a seizure in her office because i was in a state of panic and am still very upset to the point i have had to take my emergency meds to try to head off a seizure. She said that I have time, but this legal document says I have 3 days. My re-certification is not even due yet. is this legal?

    a friend of mine has a syrian hamster that had a bunch of babies. when they were three weeks old, she gave me two of them. all of them were approximately the same size. After about a week, one of the hamsters i had, died. The other is healthy and running around and playing. Well, she brought me another hamster from the same litter. This hamster is 3 times bigger than the other one i have...it looks fully grown while the one i have, and the one that died are and were still small. Were the original ones taken from their mom too soon? is that why one of mine died? and is that why they were so tiny? I was able to pick the new one myself instead of just taking one she gave me cause she didn't know how to tell gender. they were all crammed in a cage where the bedding was soaked in urine, and the babies, were almost the same size as the mother and was crowded up under her..and all seemed wild and terrified. She also had them on a diet of rat food. the ones i had originally, dont even seem to be from the same litter cause of size..

    I have suffered insomnia for more than 20 years. There are times when I go three and four days without sleep. I can be so tired I want to cry, and just not be able to fall asleep. I started treating it myself years ago with otc antihistamines. At one time I was prescribed prescription sleep meds, but because of a previous suicide attempt, they only prescribed about 5 f them a month. My insomnia was a lot worse than that. When my body would get accustomed to one treatment, I would change and go to another. Even keeping whiskey by the bed cause one shot of whiskey would help me sleep. A few months ago, my doc asked me about my sleeping and I told her I was taking the OTC zquil. She prescribe hydroxyzine. 25mg at night. And now I can sleep. I am also in chronic pain. I have a rotator cuff injury.arthritis, diabetic nephropathy, and a hip injury. Throughout my day, I take 800mg Ibuprofen to deal with the pain. I have also been prescribed tramadol 50mg every 12 hours. i only take half a pill at night. that is 25mg once a day. Without these medications, I would not get any sleep at night, and I only take them at night. The other day, I was late. I over slept. My friend that I was to meet with was angry and blamed my medication telling me I needed to flush them because I was an addict. I have seen addicts. 25mg once a day of these medications would not work for an addict, would they? I have always feared becoming addicted to anything. Is it possible that I am addicted?

I provided the fabric, and the pattern with a promise to pay $20 the first of Nov, and another $20 the first of Dec. Nov 1st, I made the first payment. She came to my home with the fabric and questions about how I wanted them made. I thought, OK, she didn't want to make them till she was sure she was getting her money. She seemed excited saying she had ideas for it that she wanted to do, I told her to make decorated them how she wanted as long as they were functional full-length aprons. Dec 1st, I made the second and last payment. January, I asked her about them, and she said it was taking her a while cause she was being creative. It is now two weeks into Feb. This is a woman that does a lot of charitable work in our community and stays very busy. I don't want to nag her. I have since then, bought two aprons on eBay for $4, and plan on buying two more. How can I approach her about these aprons without sounding nagging?

    I know that as we grow and develop, so does our tastes in foods. My question is this. What was your favorite meal? The meal that when you knew it was being prepared, you raced to the table? what about your least favorite? the one that made you want to hide and hope no one missed you at the dinner table? What is your favorite food now? and your least favorite? When I was growing up, my mother rarely cooked. We pretty much lived on peanut butter sandwiches or hot dogs. But there was that rare occasion that my mother did cook. Spaghetti was my all time favorite. One of my least favorites was liver and onions. They were just nasty. The other was my mom's chili. It was all heat and no flavor. Now, my favorite meal is taco salad. Liver and onions still remain the meal I would run from. I like chili cause i make it very mild. Two foods I now add to the least favorite list is lima beans, and artichokes. For years I would not allow a jar of peanut butter or a hot dog into my kitchen. That has changed, but gradually. We eat hot dogs about twice a month. If i eat peanut butter, I have to have a full glass of milk. How have your taste buds developed?

    I have been told by my housing manager that there is going to be a major inspection of all units in my complex by HUD. I am told that nothing can be in front of the windows or it is an instant eviction. This does not make sense to me at all. Everywhere I have lived before, We just had to be able to access our windows. A couch in front of a window is not blocking the window, a bed in a room so small that there is no where to put the bed except in front of the window, does not lock access to the window. But I am being told to move everything away from the windows. We can still access the windows, so why do we have to move our furniture, and where else would we place the bed? Also, instant evictions on the spot? That is unheard of! If anyone has knowledge of these guidelines, please tell me if i am wrong? Maybe our housing manager misunderstood?

    One of my computers is less than 2 years old. It came with Win 10 already installed and is supposed to be a gaming computer. It seems that it messes up after every big update. Not the small ones, though I still tense up when it does those too. After each update, I go through hours of trying to get my PC out of the repair disc loop. I have a game i play, that saves all my logs, and i try to salvage those logs, as they can t be stored in the cloud as i have learned to put everything else there. With this game, when you have to reinstall it, it starts you back at square one. The game itself is not that important, it is the chat logs that I have with my friends in other countries that is pretty much my "family". My memory is bad due to rl illness and i also have logs from dear friends who have died. These updates make me have to re-install Windows every time. i keep an ISO image on a thumb drive because I go through this every few months when a new update comes out. I don t want to lose my "memories" again. I am trying to get it to let me keep my files, my fear is that they are erased anyway, even after going through the reset and keep my files. I don t know, because it wont complete the reset, it says "undoing changes" and I am right back in that repair loop. Can anyone give me an option that will help me? My pc is a Dell laptop with two graphics cards, though after the first time this happened my Nvidea card is toast.

    i get these little sores on my back and shoulders. They start out looking like big pimples. After they break open, I treat them with alcohol and triple antibiotic ointment. Because I am diabetic, I know the healing process will take quite some time. I can have anywhere from 2 to 5 at a time that are in different stages of healing. One has given me a lot of problems. I was cleaning it and using the ointment, but it only got worse. Finally, two days ago, the pain was more than I could bare so I called around to try and get a ride to urgent care. No one could come and get me. So I had to endure one more night where the swelling went from 2 inches in diameter to 3 inches all the way across the wound. I rode the bus to urgent care yesterday morning. The doctor asked me what brought me in and all I dd was pull off the bandage, and he actually said in a loud voice "well Hello!" He prescribed doxycycline and heat. He said for me to come back on Saturday where he would look at it again and see if they needed to cut it open. I slept badly last night even after taking enough pain pills to knock a horse out..Woke with the towel and bandage covered in puss and in excruciating pain. the swelling is still there..the pain is worse, and i have changed the bandage 4 times. If it is draining, why does it still hurt so bad, ad why is there a lump on my back surrounding the sore that is the size of my splayed hand from fingers to palm.

By the time we started receiving Christmas gifts, I was 13 and my mother married a man who would not allow her to not celebrate. We finally got our first Christmas tree and we were excited to finally be able to tell people what we got for Christmas without lying. Well, turned out, I was the one who sat up with my mom late at night wrapping all the gifts..even my own. After leaving home, I was never surprised because before having children, I didn't celebrate Christmas, why should I? I was alone. Then I had children, and again, because I was the mom, I wrapped the gifts. I loved seeing the surprise on my children's faces. Well, now they are adults and two of them have come to me asking what I want. I tell them, surprise me, don't tell me..i want to have no idea what is in the package. Still, my daughter came to me and told me what she was getting me. My oldest son did it to me today. I am disappointed that I know what is going to be in the package again. And before anyone jumps on me, I do know what the season is about, and that is the main reason for the celebration.

    Several years ago, an ex boyfriend of mine bought me a knife set from Walmart...That was all i had asked for that Christmas. I hated it the moment I opened up the box. It was a cheap set. Every knife and a serrated edge. In a knife set, to me the only knives that should be serrated is the steak knives and the bread knife. I kept the set on my counter but never used it. Other family members did, but that was cause they didnt know any better. I caught my son pealing a potato with a steak knife. Well, this set is more than 7 years old only because I never used it for day to day cooking. I had my sharp butcher knife and my paring knife, neither of which was part of this gawdawful set. Recently my paring knife came up missing, and the handle on my Grandmothers butcher knife disintegrated . So I have been forced to use these horrible knives. Today I got a decent paring knife that I ordered on E-bay Thanksgiving day when i was ready to throw a potato and the knife i was using out the window. The new pairing knife seems to be decent fro now, but I want a reliable set, without having to sell a kidney to get them

They live with my best friend who cries to me about how they steal her medications, they don't help to pay any bills and they don't clean up after themselves. Last night, my daughter informed me she is trying to get pregnant. I told her she needed to be able to support a baby before even considering such an idea. I was floored by her response. She said that the room she shares with her husband in his mom's house is big enough for the crib once they clean his room. She said that her part time job would be enough to support a baby since they don't have to pay for anything but gas fr her mother in law's car that she and her hubby have basically taken over. I told her that before she considers getting pregnant, she ad her husband need to have their own place, paying their own way for at least a year! She said it was none of my business, I think it is, cause i fear my friend and i are going to be the ones raising our children's child.

Sometimes it is the form of a person..or just an abstract shape. Sometimes it is across the room, sometimes it is directly over me. This last time, it happened twice in one night. The first time, I was getting sleepy enough that I knew I would fall asleep soon..I turned over in bed..and it was standing across the room. I turned on the light, and it was gone. The second time..it was around 4am ..i had woke up in the middle of the night, an it was an abstract blocky shape over me. It startled me, and I lashed out with my hand and it went through the object. It stayed in place until i turned on the light and it was gone. Is this some type of dream or what?
