  1. I have not heard of that at all, I was going to ask you what it is.. I too have hiatial hernia. I will see if I can find some information and get it to you about it. Well give it to one of the girls on here , Take care, Sam
  2. I see that you mentioned that you were going to quit smoking, that is great!! Yes it is very hard but you will notice a different soon. I use to smoke up two packs a day and I do miss it but not the smell. I can actually taste my food and drink now. I'm sorry to hear you are in pain with the ulcers I have had only one and I know I thought I was going to die it hurt so much. I too thought if they could cut it off I would feel so much better. But they didn't. I too have calcium deposits on my forearms the one does bother me more then the other, will have them remove eventually but I'm not good about having surgery, i had some removed onmy right knee about three years ago, so far so good .. Well you take care and keep us informed what is going on, Sam
  3. I have used salt in the water while boiling them and also the older the eggs the easier it peels. I think when fixing any type of egg it should be at room temperature. Well good luck, I know if mine dont peel right I dont let it get to me.. Sam
  4. jefa I think you can buy lights that doesn't require electricity. I'm not sure where to go though. Patty that sounds really pretty. I too have scarecrows sitting on my porch in a chair.
  5. Well I woke up with my knuckle swolen and red and I had noticed I had a splinter. I must of gotten it yesterday when I was outside decorating for fall. I did get it out but it hurts. LOL!! Oh well just wanted to complain this morning. Sam
  6. jefa, take some water and put in the big vase and buy some floating candles that will be very pretty when lit. When you stick the red bulbs in it do you put lights in it too, that is pretty that way too.
  7. I do, my living room furniture is green and tanish color and my carpet is green, I have all these pretty orange and reds and yellow through out the house. I had put out fall flowers and my fall wreath and It looks really nice. I am so bored and my left arm isnt feeling any better. So tel me what do you do? Do you make any type of fall decorations to give to anyone. I am thinking of making a Jar for fall to give to several people in my family. Well have a good night, I'm getting sleepy. Take care, Sam
  8. Mary thanks for the american pain site I already belong to it and recieve newsletters from. Giorgigirl, thanks for your input too, I will have to see if that might be it will know on the 4th. Jackie I hope the link and wht giorgigirl said might help you. Take care, Sam
  9. Jackie, I know my family doctor thinks it might be from my neck. We will see on the 4th. I have Fibro too, I had tried asking for some pain pills but the doctor didn't want to give me anything right now for it until we find out what is going. The celbrex is not working. I was going the Therapy it helped for a few weeks then it was making it worse. I even quit working out all together till I find out what is going on. Right now I am expericeing pain in my neck like squeezing feeling but not really sure what it is, calling the doctor this morning to let him no, I can feel how tense I am in my neck on both sides, Well I hope they find out what is going on with you two, keep me update ok, Sam
  10. Maddy just listen to what the doctors say, and go from there , this is hard question to answer. Have the doctor run a test to see if there is infection, it sounds like you may have one. but again you said you kidneys are not working right. I would have that checked out again. Sam
  11. I know exactly how you feel I am going through the same thing, I am getting an MRI done OCT.4 and I can't wait. I too went to PT and it helped for a bit then I got worse. I can't lift my left arm like I should and it hurts if I try to. I dont want to get shots but thinking I might if I find out what may be the problem. I have OA in my neck and that doesn't help any either. I can't get comfortable at all and night time is the worse. I want to lay on my left side and I can't.. Well I have no information to give you but just to let you know your not alone in this. Sam

  20. Well I'm not as stressed as I was, the educational meeting I had is done and over with and went very well. We are taking our time unpacking and still moving things to my parents house. My son is calmed down they gave him soe prozac to help him todeal what he is dealing with. I think that was what part of myproblem was I was out of my prozac and I was jsut getting overwhelmed. But this pain in my left arm is getting worse. I was having PT done but it was making it worse. So our next step is an MRI but this morning I am calling to see if I can get soemthing for the pain., Celebrex isnt helping at all. Well thanks for your kind words, I did take them to heart. Take care, SAm

Now I'm just me trying to find what I really want to do, I went to college but you know you never get to do what you went to college for, the money spent for us to get a beeter job is silly when most of us actually don't do what we went to school for. OH well enjoy life and take each day as it comes, Sam
