Husband and I lived in Alaska six years ago. We were there on military orders living in Fairbanks, Alaska. I worked per diem pediatrics while living there. Alaska is a beautiful country, but I had to leave before my husband's military time was up over there due to the effect Alaska's environment had on my body. I got what is known in laymen's terms as "frog syndrome'. I was literally swimming in my own body fluids. If a person never sweats before they go to Alaska, they may have the same problem. Anyway, I flew to a naval hospital in my favorite state of CA....
.....and the navy docs knew immediately how to treat me. That was the good news. The bad news was that I couldn't go back without going through that crap again, soooooooo...I humbly resigned myself to living in CA with my middle kid who was stationed there in the Navy. Yes, it was hard.......but......I LOVED EVERY DAMN BIT OF IT!!!
Hubby had to complete his tour of duty without me, but he flew to CA every six months to see me. I went back briefly at the very end of his tour there, then we PCSd to Colorado...another one of GOD'S COUNTRIES!!!
Well.......got a luncheon to attend......check you gals and guys out later this afternoon! CHOW EVERYONE! :kiss
