So (this question is for the ladies) you know how you've always been told that exercise
will help your cramps? Yeah, that's a bunch of CRAP. I just did major cardio shoveling
and it's WAY worse. I feel like the people in the Aliens movies, something's about to come
bursting out of there! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

I'm pretty sure it was a man who said that <_<



Maybe it's exercise for weeks before the cramps? The only thing that helped when mine were bad was a hot pad and some muscle relaxant they used to give in the previous century.

I am sorry you feel so miserable; but glad the pain left your powers of description unscathed. :)

I think it was not the exercise, but the temperature. Cold, even if you were well-wrapped, is never good for cramps. I am one of the lucky folks for whom the "exercise prescription" worked: I'd do a round of crunches and leg lifts and I'd be as good as new in 5-10 minutes. Maybe it only works with certain types of exercise - and shoveling is not one of them.

Hope you feel better today.

I think the exercise just keeps your mind off of it for a few minutes. I'm with K - handfuls of drugs.

Are these menstrual cramps we're talking about? Yes, for me exercise does little to nothing. Extra-strength Ibuprofen does it all.
Gluten cramps.....well, nuttin' helps with those......except time..... ((((sigh)))....

That may be it- it was about 42-43 degrees, in the sun shoveling I got so warm I had to strip
a few of those layers of wrapping! Clearly, shoveling is not one of the 'recommended exercises'.
:lol: :lol:

I'm pretty sure it's stress that's made the past few months worse. Which is frustrating because
I've kept my diet super-clean, 90% organic, grain-free, sugar-free..... Any you ladies dealt with
super-sucky periods from stress? Any advice? :huh:

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!


I think this describes us - never have enough friends - for all occasions. Thanks for being part of the fabric of who I am!!





Vitamin F and this so true!!!!



I loved this and wanted to share it with you...

Why do I have a variety of friends who are all so different in character?
How is it posssible that I can get along with them all?
I think that each one helps to bring out a "different" part of me.

With one of them I am polite. With another I joke.

I can sit down and talk about serious matters with one. With another I laugh a lot. I listen to one friend's problems. Then I listen to another one's advice for me.


My friends are like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
When completed, they form a treasure box.
A treasure of friends!

They are my friends who understand me better than I understand myself.
They're friends who support me through good days and bad.


Real Age doctors tell us that friends are good for our health.

Dr. Oz calls them Vitamin F (for Friends) and counts the benefits of friends as essential to our well being.


Research shows that people in strong social circles
have less risk of depression and terminal strokes.
If you enjoy Vitamin F constantly you can be up to
30 years younger than your real age.

The warmth of friendship stops stress and even in your most intense moments, it decreases the chance of a cardiac arrest or stroke by 50%.

I'm so happy that I have a stock of Vitamin F!


In summary, we should value our friends and keep in
touch with them.


We should try to see the funny side of things
and laugh together and pray for each other in the tough moments.


Some of my friends are friends on line. I know I am part of theirs because their names appear on my computer screen every day and I feel blessed
that they care as much for me as I care for them.
Thank you for being one of my Vitamins!

'shroom, I LOL'd... I always visit home (Italy) in the Summer, so it's really just a question of driving across the country. I got fed up of waiting for the announcement of the American leg of the tour, and worried there wouldn't be a NYC date in the Fall - which would have meant no date for me, since I have to teach in the fall - so... :wub: :ph34r:


What concert are you going to?

<------------ THIS. Meaning my avatar. I was brought up listening to Depeche Mode: pretty somber for a toddler, but hey, my brothers also read Poe and Lovecraft to me, so I guess that fits the picture. Synthesizers were my favourite toys when I was four or five (we had some around the house). :ph34r:


Nice! I love Depeche Mode! Ignore my question above, I didn't finish catching up on posts. I was lucky enough to see several people on my bucket list perform before we became unemployed (and disabled). Sir Paul McCartney, Roger Waters performing The Wall (with excellent seats), Paul Simon, and let's not forget "The Boss." Luckily we saw a LOT of concerts before DH lost his job. And Tony (our son for anyone new to the thread) bought the Springsteen tickets and also tickets to see Bare Naked Ladies. There were many more and I feel very lucky to have had those chances. When I was in college we went to the free concerts in Central Park every weekend. I even got to go to go to the Concert For Bangladesh (that definitely dates me). Music has been a vital part of our lives and although it took Tony a long time to get into music and concerts (high school) he's made up for it in spades.

BTW, last night we took Tony and 5 of his friends to a really nice French Restaurant. He chose it because they had a Bistro Menu and the fixed price was reasonable compared to the Ala Carte menu. They made an exception for me and let me have sorbet for desert (3 exotic kinds and an apple caramel compote). Didn't feel good this AM (thought it was the flu) but I think it was having a big, rich meal much later than I normally eat. I also think the Pate might not have been as gluten-free as the chef said it was. We also got pulled over on the way home for speeding. I kept saying a positive affirmation that the officer would be kind (DH was doing 51 in a 25 mile an hour zone - not like Superman to fly when driving a car). He hadn't had a speeding ticket in 20 years and the officer only gave him a ticket for going 5-10 miles over the limit. RI has a "Good Driver Pass" so all DH has to do is show up in court March 5th and tell the judge he wants to use his pass and the ticket will be thrown out. No points and no increase in insurance rates. PHEW!!!! I'm sure that incident didn't help my digestion at all. Today he went to meet a friend for lunch and as he left I yelled out REMEMBER TO USE CRUISE CONTROL!!!! We had just gotten off a highway and the speed limit wasn't posted on the back road. I usually question him when I think he's speeding and it always annoys him so I chose last night to be silent. Again, thank God it was a kind police officer.

OK, time to continue doing laundry. Happy VD everyone!!!

Love & Extra Hugz,
Loey

They used to give us these green pills in High School if we went to the nurse. I'm sure they would be a controlled substance today. Boy did they ever work! :wacko:

Thank heaven, I though I was the only one on these boards! :) I can't drop TV references, but I can drop music references, and my students started using the phrase "walking in [someone's] shoes" in our seminar when we talk about empathy.

*swoon* You saw Waters in The Wall?!?!? That is like 50 shades of awesome! Where did you go to college?

I think if my parents hadn't used music as an adjunct babysitter I probably wouldn't be doing what I am doing now (I was in a choir for some years when I was ahem, younger) - we had synths, a regular piano, a couple of electronic pianos, a violin, a trumpet, a saxophone, a pale pink rose guitar (my brother's pick, don't ask), and I am not sure what else. I think my mum only put it a stop when one of my bros wanted to keep a drum machine in the house, and we lived in a condo. :lol:
