I'm not much help! Am still waiting for a diagnosis of whatever's wrong with me but can so sympathise with the feeling of having the plague. People treated me like a leper when I first got my rash on my face (although my dermo has apparently never seen anything like it ~blinks~).
Also, I live in Scotland where it rains most of the time and heavy curtains and window blinds are usually deployed to keep out your nosy neighbours more than anything else :lol: so am not much use on advising you on window coverings on your side of the world!
But I wanted to leave a note to say thank you! Reading through both your posts made me laugh (ahem, so sorry if you werenít meaning to be funny ops: ). You seem to have such a light-hearted approach to things and I think itís a lesson that I could do with remembering from time to time when I feel down about all my symptoms.
So, thanks again! Hope you get your house sorted out soon and best wishes for 2008!
