Yes, the weather there is about the same as back home. I'll be inside most of the time so should be okay. Thanks for the support!

Thanks so much for the support. There may be times I will need feed-back from all of you, if you would be so kind! I am going now just for training--who knows if I will get called to testify? I am a patient rep for the next 5 years and I truly hope that in that time there will be lots of medications...

So the perfect medication for us would need to give us 8 hours of sleep, energy and good mood the next day, higher sex drive, lighten menopause symptoms, grow hair for guys, make us lose weight, give us perfect boobs and more money and better jobs. LOL I wish with all my heart that those who suffer ...

At least it works for some people! As with everything else and WED, what works for some doesn't for others.

Thanks so much for the support. The furor has died down some except for just a few who don't like it. The biggest step is getting it recognized by the medical profession. Several people have said that their doctors will just refuse to use the new name. It makes you wonder if the same problem arose w...

Jumping in here late but just had to comment on one thing--we might be boring when it comes to WED and how it affects our lives, we might be boring because we don't feel like doing anything and we might be boring because we are just too flippin tired to do anything. BUT, it is other boring people al...

Our local health food store has a wonderful fish oil that comes in three different flavors--lemon pie, pina colada and another one I can't remember. It is in liquid form and will not cause you to burp. Check it out at a store near you but also check the ingredients. I haven't tried it yet because I ...

Sorry, I thought I had posted a reply but it isn't on here! I just wanted to say that I truly appreciate the support and input. Facebook and the discussion board are so totally different! I have seen lately a couple of people that say they have come to this board and there aren't any current posts, ...

I have never had my Vitamin D checked but about 3 years ago I felt like my body was just trying to shut down. It literally felt like parts were shutting down and I could place one foot in front of the other. My doctor did a thyroid test (I had one done a year or two earlier) and then I went out of t...

Yep. It's much better than ED and easier to say than RLS. One more vent and I will quit, I promise! The same people who are fussing the most are not members of the Foundation. That makes no difference when you are giving your opinion but it does when you run down the Foundation. Supposedly the Found...

Name change (again)

I don't know how many of you know but the decision was made to change the name from Restless Legs Syndrome to Ekbom Disease earlier in the year. It was to take effect in July although it would be a long process to make the actual change. Several people have taken a violent dislike to any name change...
