That is SO great, Loweeeee....Crap, dancin' all night is challenging cardio..... . ...unless you is slow dancin'... ;)

ThanksEm! There were two slow dances with Superman (the first time since we were married 23 years ago - Rob HATES dancing) & the rest of the night I danced (yes, very challenging cardio) with the bride & groom's biker buddies. The women were a hoot! The groom (Rob's cousin) was in a very serious motorcycle accident 2 months ago so it was a wonderful celebration of his marriage (they were married in the ICU) & the fact that he survived & could also dance!

Thats great loey!!!! I am feeling a bit of pain today too LOL

Get out the icepack my friend! I plan on doing that as soon as we get home! Then I have a great book to read! :-) my iPad is charging so I might not be able to read in the car!

We went for a fall colour scenic drive today. It was a large counter-clockwise loop through southern and central Ontario, into the Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton Highlands, almost to Algonquin Park, and then back home through the southern part of Muskoka. Six+ hours and over 400 kilometers, most of it with beautiful, vivid views. Traffic coming back south was heavy out of cottage country on Sunday, but we needed to seize the moment as it will rain tomorrow.

 

A very enjoyable day.

Very nice, POeter.....What a great way to spend a day with your sweetheart. I LOVE the Haliburton Highlands -- Will's aunt had a tiny island in Lake Joseph with a little cottage perched on it, and we used to stay there over a weekend. Just beautiful.

The coloUrs 'round here are just starting to change -- you say they're in full force in S Ontario? Hmmm...youse guys get EVERYTHING first...  <_<   :rolleyes:

No pictures this time out. We are not seeing peak colours quite yet. Another expedition to the NW rather than NE may be indicated.

On my way home now. Ouchy sums up the exam! Part of my problem is my IC. She's going to deal with that first. I have to have 6 weeks of installations of lidocaine & prednisone - double ouchy! I also need PT for pelvic floor disorder. She feels that she can help me but it will take time because IC is just one of the problems. I feel quite blessed - I've had far worse medical issues so this will be a (painful) walk n the park. Good thing I danced Saturday night because I won't be moving around today! The doctor was great & now that the initial appointment is over I'll be able to get in to see her as soon I as call. It's a 45 minute drive each way but she's rated highly, has a terrific bedside manner & well worth the trip! As always I can't imagine life without my dear Psillies! Thank you for always being there for me!!

 I went to a wedding last night & was able to dance all night long! A far cry from my falling & writing incoherent posts. My back isn't too happy today, but my chiropractor can fix that.

Yay you!

 

I can't sit comfortably on most chairs or any stools, and can't stand for any length of time....all because of my back. But I can dance forever. I feel no pain when I dance. It's awesome!

Nah. It's just one of those things that has gotten progressively worse. What I know is that I have osteoarthritis in my lower back (creates problems if I stand still too long,), 2 bulging disks and a herniated disk in my neck (shouldn't look down to help student, draw, computer), osteopenia, and I have lost 3/4 inch in height. My biggest issue right now is the middle of my back (the sitting problems. No high back chairs, booths, stools, or long car rides)and I have not yet had an MRI on that to find out what exactly is going on. It'll cost around  $900 to get that done. Luckily, the school chairs are great for the way I need to sit....they have low backs. And Brian bought his current motorcycle specifically with my comfort in mind.

Well hi y'all!  After trying to resurect my dying desktop, I've decided it is terminal and switched to the laptop.  This, of course means that I have none of my passwords.....

 

Finally got around to resetting this one, so, hi!   Missed y'all!

    • George, i am sorry that you are not feeling well!  ☹️  I am not a doctor, but just trying out drugs to stop your symptoms just seems like a band aid  approach.  It sounds like he suspects IBS which is really, in my opinion, "I be stumped".  Has inflammatory bowel disorder (IBD) (more lovely autoimmune disorders) been ruled out?  This includes both Crohn's and Colitis.  My niece was diagnosed with Crohn's finally with a pill camera after all other tests were given.  The damage was not within reach of any scope.  I am just throwing out suggestions.  Hopefully, you and your doctor will figure it out soon!  
    • Celiac disease is an autoimmune disease that happens to have a known trigger -- gluten.  Flare-ups develop  (antibodies) causing damage. Not just in the small intestine, but systemically.  One gluten exposure can cause antibodies to increase for days or months!   Antibodies are being measured during the celiac blood tests.   If there is no gluten exposure, there will be no antibodies.  These antibodies can come down in some people in as little as two weeks.  Recommendations require gluten 2 to 4 weeks daily for the biopsies taken via endoscopy in order to be sure to catch damage, but 8 to 12 weeks for the blood tests.   The endoscopy is considered the "gold standard" in helping to diagnose celiac disease, but there are other things that can damage the small intestine.  So, the blood test helps solidify the diagnosis.   So, if you want a good result on your endoscopy, you need to be eating gluten daily for two week prior at a minimum.  I know it is tough and you are feeling sick.  Wish there was a better way to catch active celiac disease.    
    • Hi everyone, Just an update to my situation.  I had thought that I might be getting better since I started adding gluten-free grain back into my diet but I was wrong.  It seems that the Methscopalamine Bromide just delayed the effects, didn't stop them.  I had to stop taking it because one of the side effects is to stop sweating, which I did.  There were times when I felt hot and almost couldn't catch my breath.  Anyway, my doc put me on Viberzi instead.  I took 3 doses, 1 Tuesday evening and then 1 Wednesday morning and then again Wednesday evening.  Each time I took 1, it seemed that about half an hour later I would develop severe abdominal cramping, pain in my neck, shoulders and upper back and a feeling like my insides were on fire.  My face felt like it was hot and tingling.  It wasn't warm to the touch but felt like it to me.  Worse of all is it didn't work anyway, I still had diarrhea.  I stopped taking Viberzi after reading the precautions pamphlet which said, "stop taking Viberzi and tell your doctor if you have abdominal cramping, pain which radiates to your shoulders or upper back."  Go figure.  Anyway, today is 3 weeks straight of diarrhea and still no diagnosis and not sure what he's going to want to do next. George 
    • I'm still really new to all this but is it common to have trouble with sleep? I swear since my symptoms got really bad a few months ago I can't get 1 good nights sleep, like a 5 hour stretch is doing real good. Wake up at 3am wide awake almost every night. Told my doctor and they've recommended melatonin, that doesn't work. Tried chamomile and lavender tea, no help. Tried zzquil, that will knock me out but maybe for like an extra hour then I'm really drowsy the next morning from it. I don't know what to do.
