I had trouble remembering my own birthday when I was a kid. Not too big

on dates and anniversaries and the like, so it's nice that there are so many

internet and computer and phone things that remind you!

Alright guys i have a major delima......

So wasp #5 showed up whilst i was in the bathroom. I quickly shut the door and went to find something to clean it with. It was above my head and all i had was shower cleaner (works rather well for disabling them). I sprayed, it fell down, and i squished. But i failed to take into account all of my stuff on teh counter.

My retainer case (with said retainer in it) was sittng atop of a major spray doused area. I'm pretty sure none got in however, when i went to check there is a major possibility that it did.

How do i clean it so that it goes away? :( Right now its sitting in some hydrogen peroxide. I need my retainer and i can't afford to replace it.

I don't know, i think part of it is because of the warm/cold weather thing thats been going on. Then others in the building leaving the doors/windows open. I've contacted housing and thats the reason they gave me.

I'll do that after the peroxide. My mom said to just rinse it off really good, but i'd rather be on the safer side.

Wolfie- give it a good rinse with running water then a good soak. It will be fine. It didn't have the stuff on it for more than a few minutes.

Okay :)

I tried the viniger and baking soda, that was a fun experiment :lol: Right now the retainer is soaking in some water. I've got to go clean the case. I think with that one i can get away with some dishsoap on it.

Wow, you are way cooler than I would be!! That's at least flowers, maybe jewelry in my book. Or a book of course.

Very sweet though :)

Hope you had a lovely birthday. Good film?

I've always told Superman he didn't have to get me anything for my BD or Anniversary. He does so much for me year round. He'll usually get me a card and once in a while (when we have $ he'll knock my socks off (like the Christmas that he got me a gorgeous platinum, dark gold and light gold wedding ring and earring set covered in diamonds- I got him sweat pants that year). It's really important to me that I throw him a birthday party for his 1/2 a century birthday because last year when I was delirious I did't even remember his birthday - 1st time in 23 years I forgot). I have girlfriends that tell their BF's or DH's that they don't care about their special days but it's really a trap. I have no respect for them. I think your birthday call was very sweet and he didn't have to tell you it took fb to remind him. Anyway wishing you a HEALTHY year!!

Love,

Loey

So, I am getting close to 6,000 posts (this should be 5,998). Scott is a post ahead of me when I last checked.

Bad karma is already coming my way!

I drive a 12-year-old Toyota 4Runner. The hand brake cable is sticking. I use the hand brake all the time, because I shift for myself (manual transmission). 2000 was the last model year that you could get a 4Runner with a stick shift in North America. :(

We were going to bake pizza crusts Saturday, but the oven gave off a smell of burnt plastic and then died. Need to place a service call in the morning. The stove is an antique--we may have to finally consider replacing it.

And, as if we did not need more, the drain from the washing machine is backing up. I have checked the trap in the sink, and it is clear, so the problem is downstream from there. Need to call a plumber, too.

Got some laughs from watching Blazing Saddles on DVD this evening. Now to bed.

On the upside, when the oven catches fire you can put it out by running the washing machine....

Update on the retainer: it has been cleaned as much as it can be. Even the dentist couldn't get it this clean O.O

On other bad related news. One of the moles on my back has decided to start an exploration. Right now its a oval shape multicolored monster about the width of a penny. The next time i can get to the doc isn't until later in december, so i'll ask her if i can just have it removed. I had one on my inner thigh (was born with it apperenlty) and it decided to get bigger. Long story short, had it removed, the doctor at the time took the stiches out too early, the site busted open in class (stupid hard desk), back to the E.R., also discovered during this time i had a problem with neosporan and bandaids, now have a nice large scar. Ugh. I also know the dangers of moles very well. Its in a spot where i'll have to be careful once i have stiches. And of course i can't badage it myself or take care of it.... grrrr...

on yet another note, my computers display keeps crashing. It was just in the shop in august-september for over a month for a motherboard replacement.

Looks like I may be superb%$@# wife from hell on this one then :o

Been together 12 years so must be doing something right :)

I did work out early on that by 'give me some hints what you want' meant tell me exactly what you'd like, preferably in writing!

At Christmas we often get each other tickets, and then enjoy a concert or festival together the following summer. We don't really need more stuff...

Here it is! Post number 6,000 by yours truly. Scott is still at 5,997.

The plumber and his helper are here, trying to get to the root of the problem. Well, that is it, you see. The drain is partially obstructed by tree roots that the plumber's snake is having trouble getting through. This is a condo, so the part of the plumbing outside the walls is the responsibility of the corporation. Hmmm.

    • First have you been tested for celiac disease? Any doctor can do the blood test but you have to be eating gluten on a daily basis for the test to work, nut much just a half slice of bread a day. You should get this tested, the high constipation, coughing stuff up was very common for me before diagnosis. The coughing stuff up for me was from a allergy that developed I did not know of, the mucus was draining down my throat and choking me at times, and was constantly running a fever and night sweats. I was constipated for 4-10 days average back then and drinking plenty of liquids did not help in the least. Your gut rumbling could be many things, celiac is one, SIBO is another especially with the bad breath. in your case it could be related to constipation causing rotting, fermenting, and bacterial overgrowth of the waste in your system. Now to deal with the immediate symptoms, your constipation is also a sign of magnesium deficiency, I imagine you might have noticed some other symptoms from these. Now normally I would suggest either the Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors Best which is easier on the stomach. In your case I straight up suggest the Natural Vitality Calm it is a Magnesium Citrate and works a bit like a laxative. Start with 1/4 tsp twice a day in a beverage, I like the orange or the cherry in a hot green tea or you can try it in a juice. Up the dose slowly over a periods of a week to the full dose or perhaps a little more til you get a bit looser stool.     You mentioned the mucus in the stool 2 things cause this normally. Undigested fats, and inflammation/irritation causing the body to produce the mucus to help defend itself and purge the irritants. A doctor can probably tell you more but I might suggest a digestive enzyme in the mean time. I like to use a super papaya enzyme before and after a meal, find them on amazon. Jarrow also makes full enzyme complex that can help. Other thoughts if your on dairy, stop, with the constipation, and other issues this is a equation for trouble and you can reintroduce it in a few months when you clear up and see if it bothers you then. The bad breath can be a sign of lactose intolerance/digestive issues with dairy also. If it comes you you have celiac then you would have your explanation here as the villi which produce the enzymes to break down lactose are damaged/destroyed first causing most to develop a temporary lactose intolerance which for some goes away after a few months of healing. B-vitamin folic acid, and niacin will be a huge help also with some things. but will we get into that a bit later feel free to look up Liquid Health Stress & Energy if you thing it might be relevant at this point it is what I use 3 times a day with another blend they have.
    • Some of your symptoms sound like my ulcers.  I take carafate before every meal now and they are much better.  I have 3 ulcers possibly caused by taking iron supplements.  They are worse when I eat spicy food and dairy. I might be wrong but for your sake I hope it's just ulcers.  They were found by endoscopy.
    • The yellow is probably fat you are not absorbing.  The pain could be from your intestines being inflamed.  Go see the gastroenterologist.  The ER did not help me with any of those symptoms.  Good thing it's clear so you know it's not your appendix or any other vital organ.  It takes time but probiotics, bone broth and  vitamin D and b 12 help. My pain was mainly my muscles giving out from the malabsorption.
    • Hi, this has been a postcode lottery for some time, some health authorities support it others don't. The govt has recently indicated that doctors should no longer prescribe food to celiacs, you should check with your local GP to see if they are still doing this or not. if you want some advice on where to shop just ask  
    • @CleoTheLeoI've learned that I have a sluggish liver and that before trying to cleanse the liver, I need to make sure that the gall bladder is clear and working well, as well as the gut, so that when the liver is detoxing, the toxic wastes have an elimination route. Dr. Lam explains so many things in detail in his articles. https://www.drlam.com/blog/sluggish-liver-and-adrenal-fatigue/7854/.
