    I went to the Dr. this morning because I have been having dizzy spells/light headness real bad. Ive had these problems on and off for years. I figured it was allergies because my eyes/ears/nose was itchy. He did not concur with my self-diagonise and ordered his nurse to get me an appt. asap with a neurologist and also a dopler test on my neck veins. I had a echo card. gram and a stress test done this last January and did not find any blockage even though he put me in the "keep an eye on" catogory. My blood pressure has been running hign 146/90. He then ordered me not to drive or ride a mower by myself untill test get done. That is not going to pay my bills this week and here we are with Jeanne coming in this sunday night. On the way home from the Dr. my truck tore up, LOL it justs keep getting better and better.

    I used to work with a guy who had been suffering from dizzy spells and sometimes blackouts for years but never told anyone, turned out he was diabetic.

    Take care of yourself and do as your doctor says. I know it's tough, but you won't be able to run your lawncare business at all... if your health won't allow it. I learned a long time ago to not worry about the bills. They will always be there. Just make sure you are. Good luck.

    Do what your instinct tells you. Only you know if you can do it or not. You were concerned enough to take some action so chances are you need to cut back, but maybe it will only be short term, or maybe you can just slow it down a notch. I wish you well!
