Re: Shopping for mattress

We got a memory foam mattress. It was very good but just a little firmer than I liked and so we added a softer 3" memory foam topper. Perfect. Just one thing...... If I'd to do it again I'd get single beds and push them together. That would help further with vibrations and, I think, be the best...

Re: Moving from Ropinirole to Horizant

EllenSpoehr - I am currently on 4mg ropinerole daily, from the days when this was considered an OK dosage. Sometimes I manage to get through on 3mg. I dream of getting the dosage down. This will take 'a discussion' with my GP who may or may not be amenable to upping the codeine that I take daily or ...

Re: Is it Only Me ?

This week when finishing off gift wrapping I've lost two gifts. One of which was for my husband, well darn but I've hunted everywhere without success and it will eventually turn up unless it has been wrapped accidentally within another gift. No way am I going to unwrap everything on what might be a...

Re: Is it Only Me ?

I do think that slowly attitudes are changing with regard to voluntary therapy.

Glad it's not just me who is mislaying gifts. I'm not going to search any further but will keep an open eye, sort of try and creep up on them. :)

Re: Is it Only Me ?

2BM - Did you find it helpful when you saw a therapist previously? I have never seen one. I don't know anyone in real life who has seen a therapist. Generally - Such a visit voluntarily would be almost poooh-pooohed over here, small town mentality, like getting above your station. The sort of visit ...

Sorry you had to find out the hard way that antihistamines can be the devil's work for an RLS sufferer.

Putting on the kettle I excused myself on the grounds that I'd been up and awake until 5am and had eventuall found sle...

EeFall, so beautiful where you are. We made brief inroads into Washington State and along the Columbia Gorge when going to the Maryhill Museum of Art. In an afternoon travelling through lush greenery and then having our picnic in near desert conditions in Washington (and noting the watch out for sna...

Re: Pending Opioid Withdrawal?

I am so glad that my GP is cooperative. He will work with me if i'm going on holiday, i.e. hand write the prescription.
