Man of Bronze

A cold and a battle with Embarq

         I have had a DSL outage of sorts since Memorial Day (or whatever that recent holiday was). I have had DSL service but it has been nearly as slow as dial-up. An actual outage would have been *more* frustrating, but only somewhat. It turns out that when Embarq upgraded my service from their 300mbs to 500mbs the didn't do the actual work required. Instead of putting in a DSL line, they just combined it with my phone line, added filters and basically upgraded my bill without upgrading my service. I'm going to have words with them over that.

         My DSL is now pretty zippy even with 3 computers sharing the connection. I am once again content in my little space.

         Little else has occurred. I mentioned Dragan last time I posted. I have been enjoying the wine I bought in extremely small amounts. I've had a cold, given it to my sister, and had it back from her in the last two weeks. Colds never used to bother me, but these days I get every possible symptom. I can deal with the runny nose, all that takes is a mountain of kleenex. The cough, well, one must just suffer through it. The aches and pains, though, are making me absolutely insane. Combined with arthritis I wake up in the morning with an elbow or a hip screaming at me and then it *moves* to another location. Totally whack! I hate it.

         On the byetta front, things are not going well. I hate giving myself shots. My sugar has been higher on byetta than on avandamet, but that may be because my metabolism has been screwy with a cold. I will give it at least a few more days before I talk to the doc about it.

         Can't bring myself to write today. I make a promise to write something tomorrow. Y'all hold me to it, y'hear?
