  1. Good morning!!

    Good Morning everyone!! Sorry I have not been around. I need to sit and do some reading so I can try to catch up! My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones...... The weather is warming up so I am enjoying being outside in the warm sun. Gardening is one of my favorite things to do and I will be spending most of my time doing it. It is still to cold over night to put plants in the ground so I spend the first 2 hours of the day in my indoor grow room feeding my soon to be forest! There is a chance of rain today so that will put a dent in my outside progress. Two more weeks till I go see the MDS to go over the Dat-Scan and 4 more till I go see the doc about my neck issues. I am still undecided as to whether I am going to have the surgeries or not on my neck and wrist's. I hope everyone enjoys the day and has a great weekend!
  2. Sensitive question

    Hello Jenette, Wow every morning? I am lucky to go #2 once a week if that. I don't know if it is a muscle issue or not and I have had this issue for years! I abuse Miralax which seems to do nothing. If I understand it correctly, it very well could be from the PD effecting the muscles that move the poo through it's coarse. Hopefully someone else will give you some useful info.
  3. How many of you use Pot and it helps?

    2-4 hours depending on strain and if the grower knows how to grow. You would be amazed at how many different strains there are and what they effect!

    Wow!! I know I read some of that but I don't remember any of it!! 8 More day's till Spring!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. Good morning!!

    Good Morning everyone! I forgot about the hour change.. Must have been that extra hour of sleep I got I have spent the last week dealing with a sinus infection from hell! All of the coughing has given me 6 pack ab's Ok maybe a really firm pony keg, but it has been a workout for my belly either way. It is almost over which is great because everyone is getting tired of chasing me around every time I start coughing to see if I passed out and fell down again. On the bright side of life... The snow is melting and half of the yard is grass again! I am gearing up to start my garden plants. This year I wont plant as many of one thing and more of another. There is only so much you can do with squash (5 plants are too much). With my luck, I will germinate my seeds to soon and have a huge indoor garden before it stays warm enough outside to put them in the ground. Last year I lost a few plant to the frost. JB- How much syrup do you usually cook up?
  6. Sleepless in Phoenix

    When you figure it out let us know! I have tried everything I can think of and get 2 hours per night. I have tried multiple sleeping meds with and without alcohol. JoyH- you got to love your extended family (fire fighters) I grew up with them and they are a great bunch of people.
  7. Good morning!!

    Your just making me hungry!! The name cookie derives from UNIX objects called magic cookies. These are tokens that are attached to a user or program and change depending on the areas entered by the user or program. Cookies are also sometimes called persistent cookies because they typically stay in the browser for long periods of time. Something passed between routines or programs that enables the receiver to perform some operation; a capability ticket or opaque identifier. Especially used of small data objects that contain data encoded in a strange or intrinsically machine-dependent way. E.g. on non-Unix operating systems with a non-byte-stream model of files, the result of "ftell" may be a magic cookie rather than a byte offset; it can be passed to "fseek", but not operated on in any meaningful way. The phrase "it hands you a magic cookie" means it returns a result whose contents are not defined but which can be passed back to the same or some other program later. Confused enough?????

    http://www.drugwarfacts.org/cms/Causes_of_Death (Marijuana Mortality) "Indeed, epidemiological data indicate that in the general population marijuana use is not associated with increased mortality." Source: Janet E. Joy, Stanley J. Watson, Jr., and John A Benson, Jr., "Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base," Division of Neuroscience and Behavioral Research, Institute of Medicine (Washington, DC: National Academy Press, 1999), p. 109. http://www.nap.edu/openbook.php?isbn=0309071550&page=109 (Alcohol Mortality) "Excessive alcohol use* accounted for an estimated average of 80,000 deaths and 2.3 million years of potential life lost (YPLL) in the United States each year during 2001–2005, and an estimated $223.5 billion in economic costs in 2006. Binge drinking accounted for more than half of those deaths, two thirds of the YPLL, and three quarters of the economic costs."
  9. How many of you use Pot and it helps?

    Yes, a better word could have been used. I used to listen to him in the early 90's when I started driving truck over the road. It did not take long for me to not like his way of thinking or his point of views. Meh... to each his own right? Brad-- I can say that I have never heard of someone smoking some mj then going out and doing something that should not have happened. In my opinion, alcohol should be illegal not MJ. It does not take very much alcohol to effect the brain bad enough to make you fall down, crash a vehicle, do things a person would not normally do. You can die from consuming alcohol. As for smoking MJ, they say that you would have to smoke approximately 40,000 joints in an hour in order to consume enough to harm yourself. I have always known people who smoke and none of them including myself have ever come close to smoking that much. I smoke up to 1/8 oz per day depending on how I feel. The worst thing that has happened to me is that I wind up really hungry and thirsty then take a nap.
  10. Good morning!!

    JB- That is a great picture! I dig the color.... Yep! I am a certified polaris snowmobile mechanic so I would have tossed the battery in there in a heart beat for you. They did not design the machine for maintenance that is for sure. LOL... I have had my hands stuck in a machine but never a foot. Woodbee- That worked out perfect because I have to read things a couple of times in order to get all of the info to sink in. Today the wife, daughter and I are going to the city to see a movie.. Yep! it will be nap time for me Good morning.............
  11. sleep apnea

    I have used 3 pillows. 2 pillows, 1 pillow and 0 pillows. It makes no difference. If I lay on my left side I am fine but if I roll over to my right side I instantly have reflux up to my mouth... I don't remember what the ant-acid is that they prescribed me but if I don't take it I cannot lay down at all.
  12. sleep apnea

    I have acid reflux or whatever you want to call it real bad. I cannot lay on my right side or the burn is terrible. I can not say how many times I have woken up choking on vomit. Sorry, it is a gross subject. I do take prescribed antacid daily. The first thing I notice when I wake up is that I am very uncomfortable, sore and my hands are asleep (numb).
  13. Good morning!!

    Good Morning all!! I have been trying to catch up here but my brain has not been working all to well lately. Hope everyone is feeling good. I had a DatScan done but wont see the MDS for a few more weeks. I had another MRI with contrast done on my neck to see how much inflammation is in the bone and will see that doctor in a few weeks also. I am on the fence about the surgery's that everyone wants me to have. I go back to see my PCD next week to check my kidney function again. My last test showed less than 50% function so we stopped all of the pain and anti-inflammatory meds to see if it increases. I think I over did it with exercise yesterday and am paying for it today. On top of the new treadmill we also picked up a Xbox 360 with the Kinect. The Kinect is really fun and gives you a pretty good workout but will cause pain.... Time for me to take a long walk on a short treadmill! I want a muffin...........
  14. sleep apnea

    My wife sleeps all night so she has never told me that I don't breath. However I do have an issue with not breathing at random times. I have been told to breath by my wife and by doctors while at a checkup. It seems that I hold my breath a lot for no reason and I don't realize that I am doing it. I have been thinking about doing a sleep study to figure out what wakes me up at midnight. Let us know how your doctor visit goes............
  15. Dry Skin

    I have both oily skin and dry patches. It makes no sense. My ears, eyebrows and mustache area's are the worst for flaky skin. I have tried lotions and oils, special soaps yada yada..... It seems to be worst in the winter months.
