Re: weather

Steve, My mom instilled in her children a love for Scotland. My husband and I have been 3 times and would love to go back. I had such a feeling of coming home when I first stepped off of the plane. My grandfather was born in the area between Glasgow and Edinburgh, Blackball. His last name was Frickl...

Re: weather

Betty, I clicked on both links. WOW! thanks for sharing those. Yes it is interesting where a chat about weather can lead. That's one of the things that makes this group special. We are so sleep deprived we will follow any rabbit trail. We are going back up in temps and probably will stay there until...

Re: weather

Betty, That was quite a story! I laughed while reading it but quietly as to not waken my husband. We have had some funny travel stories from Scotland. The first visit we did ScotRail and B&Bs. We were much younger then and walked everywhere. Last visit was in 2007 when we went with friends. We s...

Re: weather

We are having a typical day of 78'f today but tomorrow we go back up to high 80's and low 90's. My cold turned in bronchitis! I had to go to Urgent Care on Saturday morning to see a doctor. She was very compassionate and when I told her I had restless legs syndrome she was sympathetic and gave the i...

weather

Sorry but I just have to whine a bit! It is 105'f here in the mountains of northern Idaho! We just don't get these temps and it is supposed to go up to 107. Add to that, I have come down with a cold. For some strange reason I am able to sleep more than just the hour I usually get in. We have had a b...

Re: Camping

I have used hot water bottles all my life. Love them on cold winter nights. That's a great idea to use them camping.

Re: Camping

That is it Betty! With 5 kids add to that whose turn is it for the next s'mores and how come he got to put the log on the fire. Good memories. I don't think my RLS would allow me to sit for long around the campfire these days. Besides, where would I plug in my heating pad?

Re: Need Sleep

Thanks! I will definitely mention this to my PA and my specialist. It makes sense.

Re: Camping

I went back to college at age 52 along with our youngest son. What fun! When I was in my last semester, age 56, we took Wilderness Survival. One of the most useful classes we took. But it involved a winter sleepover in a snow shelter we had to erect. We snowshoed into a spot not far from home up off...

Re: Camping

Wow! I don't blame you Betty. We've had some similar experiences too. On our last family camping trip with all 5 kids, we couldn't find a camp site in Yellowstone so had to go outside the park to a KOA. The spot was out in a field and there was no shelter from the wind. We got the kids fed, in the d...

Re: Camping

That is quite a vivid description! I think I would like to try camping in New Zealand.

Re: Need Sleep

That's a thought. I have been on opioids off and on since thyroid cancer in 2004. There have been seasons of pain throughout those years. I had shingles in my ear causing Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, knee issues and back issues. I will need to bring this up with my PA at the pain management. She has become...

Need Sleep

I find that in the past few weeks that I am only able to sleep for 1 hour at a time. I used to get maybe 2-3 hours. The only meds I am on are oxycodone and OxyContin CR at bedtime. I take iron & magnesium. My ferritin level was 80 last April and we are hoping to get it over 100. I see a sleep do...

Re: 15 years is way too long

Sinemet is also known as Carbidopa/levodopa. It is a dopamine agonist. I have augmented on all the others but as long as I just use this occasionally I seem to be ok.
