This is my dream home.. yep dream home. I would love to restore it. It is located in Greenbrier Co. about 3 hrs from where I live.

Thank you all for your support. You have always shown such kindness.

The new doc is now checking me for Chorea-Huntington's Disease and wants a cancer scan done.
Personally I believe she is wrong on both accounts. I have been told by 2 docs it is Essential Tremors.. then this new one walks in and looks at me and says you don't have ET you have Chorea. She never once touches me .. just ask questions and watches me..she wrote out meds for Chorea -HD , which I am not taking until I have lab work saying otherwise. Just don't see it happening.. or I want to keep my eyes closed one.. we are talking fatal.. no cure...and well I serve a God that is greater than that.. Doctor's aren't always right. She wants me to come back in 2 mo.. that isn't going to happen. I will have my results within the week because I will go get them. She didn't bother to tell me what Huntington's was. I looked it up and went into shock for about 8 hrs reading and watching until I was like wait none of this matches me or my symptoms... then I was ok... Fatal was a word she could of prepared me for... but oh well, I will know more hopefully by Wed when the labs come back. So will let you know more when I know more...

Hope you all have a blessed day
Keep each other in your thoughts and prayers

You're so right about doctors. They just guess and then eliminate. Much like what they do to our vehicles. A little prayer sent to make you just fine. As for your picture, it is a lovely old house that needs a ton of work. Was probably something in it's day.


Never give up on the dream Smile Smile


Sometimes I think doctors think we are guinea pigs - hope you can rest easy when you get your results and keep the dreams alive. Smile


It would be so beautiful if restored, Dawn, let's hope your dreams can come true. Thinking of you. Carol

After reading about you, your picture went out of my mind and I had to have another look to remind me.
Wishing you all the luck and hope that one day you will get your dream house in this excellent image.


my sincere thought are with you ....


I admire your taste about the house Dawn. What a magnificent old building.GrinSadGrinGrinGrin
Sad to hear of your health scare. Get well soon.GrinGrin


Lovely texture and mood



Bah...I really don't like the sound of that doc Sad I'm glad the symptoms don't match Huntington's. Big *phew* there. Whatever it is, *fingers crossed* it's nothing major and that it can be sorted successfully.

Really great shot of your dream house you've got here, by the way, especially with those clouds whizzing off into the corner Smile



Keep strong Dawn - Helen SmileSmile

My thoughts and prayers are with you.
