Post #1322 – 20010424

Firstly, I just bought the two Werewolf Club books at my local Border’s and the saleslady knew right where they were without having to look up the titles. She said I was the first person to have asked about them.

Secondly, do you have any suggestions as to where someone might be able to get a collection of books appraised? I would like to get my Pinkwater book and memorabilia collection insured, just in case. I’d hate to have to start over with nothing if there were a fire or flood or whatever.

Thirdly, I’ve been having some trouble breathing, feeling very thirsty, and feeling exhausted and pale. I would like to go to a doctor, but I’ve had trouble with them telling me that everything is due to my weight, and refusing to look into it any further. I had one doctor test my blood sugar for an infected toe. No kiddding! I have to deal with getting my blood sugar checked all the time, even though it always has been and is currently fine. So at least I know that’s not the problem. I’m not pregnant either. I checked. Have you dealt with this? What can I do? I’m not even that fat. I weigh less than 170. If I have to put up with this at 170, I can’t even imagine what kind of crap those who are blessed than me have to deal with.

Fourthly, I’ve been making soap out of various vegetable oils. It’s good stuff. You want I should send you some?

Thanks, Christel

Christel, you don't want this posted for all to see, do you? I suggest you find a nice doctor, one you like, one who will listen to you, and try to be of help. Such doctors exist. Start asking around. If you don't feel right, you should see someone. I have my own special soap that I like, and have used for 42 years. Thanks anyway. The other stuff...I don't know.
