I have a personal story that I need to tell.

In 2015 ,the Drs. found a brain tumor. They put me on dexamethasone to control brain swelling and to reduce fluid pressure in my head. This led to a psychotic break on my part. The doctor reduced the dosage by 2/3. This relieved my mental turmoil.
This occurred in the cancer ctr.a t Wake Baptist
and the head of oncology dept. visited me daily with his bevy of ducklings. He told me he had researched the use of this drug in older patients and had found that my reaction was quite common and that the older the patient the greater the risk of psychosis
I was saved by surgery and the tumor turned out benign . I went through 8 mos. of rehab to learn to walk again but the worst of the post surgery was the steroid. I was on it for 3.5 mo.and it was harder to kick than cocaine. Every time I got to zero mg. my Brain would swell and back on it I would go. It was terrible!.

The moral of this story is that any one on this drug is unfit to work imho.
Also I m finally thru that episode and am eternally thankful for the life that the surgeon and his staff along with the rehab workers gave
me the chance to live.
YOU ROCK Dr. Laxton.

? Hard drive failure

My inspiron 660 gives me this info when I try to boot it up using my emergency boot files. My question is , is the computer history or can I get a replacement hd installed? and is it financially feasible?I have documentation for OS . I have done some research on cloning the drive but its too late for that,right? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

My purple parrot fish has died

oddly, he was solid orange.(I never figured that one out).His name is Dog, named by my granddaughter
because he would bite. She would stick her finger in with him and squeal time after after time.
He was 10 years old and the undisputed king of his castle and tank.
I inherited him from a friend who died from liver disease in 2010.
I am shocked to find I miss the dog who never barked. Swim free little guy!

Well,has anyone received their $1200?

I heard that the funds would start to be paid by the middle of this week?
I personally think Rump is worrying himself sick by figuring a way to hijack these payments into his personal accounts.
