I used to be pretty active here, but my chronic pain and depression have gotten worse and I am more or less bed-ridden now. My focus is terrible so I can't even handle variety puzzle books, login puzzles or most crosswords. The only puzzles I can really do since they are low stress and low frustration for me are fill-ins and word searches. I can handle variations of these even if they are tricky (like no starting word, or a tanglewords, etc.). Since I only work 3 months a year from home in an easy hob in my bedroom, we are fairly tight on money. I've spent so much (or had given to me) on variety puzzle books, login puzzles, the Giant Crossword books, the specialty books, etc. I have boxes upon boxes I can't do and a Barnes & Noble bag full of 12 brand new retail-prices off the shelf that I can't use.

I might have a couple of fill-in or word search puzzles left, but I'm running low. Without these, I just lay in bed and watch TV and think about my pain. Sometimes I'll play on social media on my phone for hours out of boredom, unless my chronic migraine is too bad and the screen is too bright for me to look at.

I don't want to be a mooch or anything, I know we all spend our heard earned money (but I also know there are people here who are so sweet)...but would any of you by any chance have any word search or fill in books available that are unused?

Thanks so much, screw my life, I hate being sick and hopefully one day they can fix it.

Frances, this just makes me feel sick. How terrible! Anna was six months younger than my daughter. I feel like crying.

I know, it's a shame. After anagram and Jagsanders offered to send her puzzles, it reminded me of her again. I thought I'd do some checking to see how she'd been doing. When there had been no activity on a couple of her social media accounts since January, I had a bad feeling. That's when I located her obituary.

We know she'd been having a hard time of it for a few years----I sent her puzzles a couple of times. Really sad . . .

Well, I sent her a Christmas card several years ago but nothing else since then. upset

Sometimes posters come and go and we don't know if something has happened to them or they just got busy or lost interest in returning here.

Thank you for posting about her death to let us know.

I, too, am sorry to hear of Anna's death. I had sent her some logic magazines one time. So now we've heard of 2 deaths in a few years: a certain "guest" known as TDH1 or TDHO, and now Anna Booth.

I think Anna had Bipolar disease. I had had a friend with that same disease, and my friend lived with it from the age of 16 until the age of 53. I didn't know of it until I'd written her the usual annual birthday card on what would have been her 54th birthday. (This goes back to the late 20th century.)
