Back in business
I am typing away at 1.30 in the morning. Actually I am trying to pluck up the inspiration
to write some more essay but find instead that I am concentrating miserable on other
rubbish. However, things are looking up in general terms. I have Internet access
at last, although we still have to move the modem/router from room to room because
the signal does not carry. I managed to solve a horrible problem with MS Office

and then really I only have my dissertation. Well, I can dream.
In the mean time I have been learning how to make online databases. Still cannot
get them to edit online, but I am mostly there. Whee! And I seem to have had the

sessions to focus on my Masters... well, that was the idea), I have a good appetite.
I still have no Itraconazole, but I have stopped asking for it. I just gave up,
frankly. I seem to have reasonable energy, although I am certain that my lung function
is generally low. But then everything I tried for that did not seem to help, including
I have also been to see the Osteopath a lot recently. Maybe one of the reasons I
suddenly seem to have so much energy is the amount of stretching and relaxing he
has done around my upper back and diaphragm. I certainly seemed to help clear the
