Just a day in my crazy world~*~

Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Hello Sparkies, how are you? I can't believe my annual leave is almost over. Tomorrow is my last day :( It hasn't raced by, which is nice. Partly I guess because I mostly stayed home. I have been suffering from gout in my knee, and it hasn't managed standing and walking very well. I've had this bout for weeks, and at work it is a nightmare. I had a few days off sick, and now I've had my annual leave. So I am a little anxious about going back to work with my knee still bad. I am on my feet most of the day. When I take my daughter to her appointments we get the bus. And I am nervous getting off buses, as they don't park that close to the curb. And it is a bit of a leap getting off. It was nice having a break from work though:) Another thing that happened, well it doesn't seem so recent now(phew). Was that the nice guy I met online turned out to be a scammer. So, he wasn't so nice after all. He didn't manage to get money off me, but it was heading there as I caught him out. I really cared about him. We hadn't physically met. But, the hurt and feelings still existed. I am always skeptical when meeting people. I don't believe everything I hear. Turns out there is a lot of this behaviour online and of course we have to be careful. So, that is my news. I hope you are not suffering gout or being scammed!! How are you doing ??

    Oh, that knee pain would make everything difficult. I think I would sit on the bus stairs and scoot my bottom to the end and stand up on the street to be safe. I tried some of that online stuff, only to find ninety percent scammers and the other ten percent wanting a totally perfect woman, even though they had their faults. I was glad they were honest. I met one 'real' guy, but there are no sparks.People my age have lots of baggage and debts.I don't have much. We email and he is over an hour away. Nice to make a new friend but I had to deal with a hundred that were not so nice. This world has so many people out to use someone, what a pity as plenty of lonely people could meet up if it wasn't for weeding out the scammers. Just wears one down and we only have so many hours in a day. I even tried a site for guys that like big women, and it was the same sad tune, so I just don't go online for that anymore.

    My goodness. HOpe your knee feels better. So sorry to hear about your internet experience. **SIGH** Glad you weren't conned out of money, though. Still, it hurts.

    Goodness gracious! Glad you didn’t fall for the scammer! Be vigilant and keep SPARK’n! Have you tried eliminating sugar/carbs to eliminate the gout?
