Re: random rant about a doctor

This happens to me also. A door opening unexpectedly makes me jump inches.

Re: Pending Opioid Withdrawal?

leggo - that is sloppy customer service from the pharmacy.
I guess they reckon that we need our medication and they don't have to bother letting us know when it is available..... that we will ourselves be checking.

Re: New Doctor

deb - Not too long until 2 Jauary..... you feel like you have done everything - that's why you're now going up a level for medical advice. Well done for that.

If you make a wee note of what questions you'd like to ask it takes the strain out of trying to remember. :thumbup:

Re: RLS & Dental Surgery

I have actually had full blown rls while in the dentist chair and it was a nightmare. The removal of a fractured root that just crumbled wasn't the problem, it was my legs. Dentist working at one end and my legs waving about at the other end with me saying, just ignore this it's ok. Nowadays I make ...

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 ...
