Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Trying to look at what I AM doing. ie going to work, trying to cope. Time to stop expecting myself to perform normally or like I used to...the game has changed. And maybe that's ok. I went thru the same process. Am still going thru it, actually - can't quite fully accept the changes. Adjusting our ...

Re: What Relationships?

I wonder if, many many years ago, we would have been considered as 'possessed by demons' ?? Probably, at least in some cultures. I always wonder what people long ago would have thought and would have done. Maybe one day I can work on relationships but it seems far in future to me. I am thankful tha...

Re: My RLS should I get a 2nd opinion ?

well, you're figuring it out, and that's good. Don't forget the iron ... if your ferritin is less than 100 **and you have no contraindications from your doctor** you might be one of us who feel lessened symptoms when taking iron. Alcoholic drinks can set me off. I used to think it was only red wine ...

Re: It's settled! Seeing specialist!

I have to say, that is the best move you could have made! Dr B knows how to treat this disease. And his background is as a pulmonologist, so he can deal with your respiratory issues intelligently too, I would think.

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

He took that as an opportunity to further elaborate--almost restart, even, his dialogue about why this was necessary. How someone could be so dense as to miss four social cues to shut up (interruption, gesture, tone, and words) is beyond me. At that point I said, "It's fine, I'm doing it. No m...

Re: IV Iron infusions

Ya, that';s pretty low. The only way for me to get low enough for them to approve a transfusion is to stop taking iron for a few months. I'm not doing that. I would lose the quality of life I so recently regained.

Keep us posted about your progress in this treatment!

Re: What Relationships?

No, we sure don't. Due to all the things missing from my life, I am so grateful that I can walk, run, & move well. How small my life would be without that. My brain is fairly screwed up, after all. But how wonderful that even though I can't think well, I can still breathe (despite the asthma :lo...

Re: OH. NO...methadone refill date falls during vacation

Well,it's a perfectly valid fear. I can't think of many things - aside from intentional torture - worse than untreated RLS/WED. If I was to be prevented access to opioids, I would be screaming in fear. I am fortunate that my doctor will prescribe for a longer period when I know I have to be away. I'...

Re: Kratom berry compote

In 40 years, people are going to look back on the opioid paranoia in wonder and amazement at its extremities. People will say How. Could they be. So. Stupid.
Too bad I'll be dead by then. Oh well.

Re: Vacation and RLS

I can't think of any other reasons, except perhaps food or medicine - not in terms of healthier vs less healthy diet that you've already mentioned, but are there specific substances that you abstain from while on vacation that could be triggers for RLS/WED? It's disconcerting to think that stress mi...
