  1. The first cat is named Storm and is spoiled. Then i have a kitten named Noah. We have not gotten him inside yet.(Storm loves to go outside and play with him) Need to get him fixed first. They both came from the neighborhood. Noah is sitting inside his cat house. I insulated it and put a heating pad in there that stays on 24/7. I put a plastic flap on the front to keep rain and wind out since this picture was taken. 








  2. So i have a few thousand dollars in medical bills that are in collections and show up in my credit report.  My sister in law said thats a hippa violation and my wife disputed one and it got removed. I tried the same thing and no dice. Wondering if those credit repair companies could come in handy in this situation. Experiences, thoughts?

    Of course i would rather just pay them off, but at this moment in time it is impossible.

    Myself and my partner love Ip Man the whole trilogy is amazing and ronin 47 was great for a western movie too! We have watched all the Bruce Lee films and crouching tiger hidden dragon and can I say I’m partial to Kung fu Panda 

    The full trailer has arrived. A couple bruce lee scenes as well. Looks really good.



  4. Yes. I actually had chest pain when i ate popeyes. I dont eat popeyes often but the last 2 times i ate it, my heart was racing. The heart pain came from when i was squatting down and i stood up. First time ive felt heart pain. Its as if i didnt take any medication. Just rolling in a different position in bed would make my heart race for a short time then calm back down like before i started medication. I wonder what it is in popeyes that really messes with me. 

  5. I have always tried to describe myself as if im floating in a boat sometimes. I can feel this way in any position. I've had muscle twitches all over my body for the past couple of months. Not sure if related. But i physically saw myself swaying back and forth in the mirror. I also feel like i am losing my balance sometimes. Starting to wonder if its parkinsons disease or something or is it just a pots thing. Someone on another group mentioned MdDS. Anybody deal with these symptoms?

  6. I was blessed to have this cat house donated to me brand new. I put it together and of course i had to take a break and i am still suffering from doing it. Felt faint the first night. Pushed through so the cats can have somewhere to be warm this winter. Its around the 60s so isnt terribly cold at night yet. I did order a heating pad for the inside. I plan to insulate it and put a plastic flap on the front door. I hope they use the inside. The kitten took to the upper deck the first night.  My grey cat named storm(not one of the strays) of course had to go inside while i was putting it together.






  7. So my camera did not pick up the colors very well but i will explain. Last night i got in the shower and i noticed after a couple mins my left arm and hand were blood red and my right arm was completely normal in color. Then after another couple of minutes both of my arms and hands were blood red. Then in less than 2 minutes my arms went back to their normal color except for some red blotchy spots on my hands. I took a picture of it. My hands look pretty red in this picture but the camera is just crap. My hands were pale(normal) and the red blotches were more noticeable than you can see in the pictures. I see a lot of people have pots and other conditions. So far all i have been diagnosed with is hyper pots. Perhaps this is just a nornal pots thing. I just wanted to know your input.


    Edit. Sorry i dont know why the first picture uploaded twice.20191025_044033.thumb.jpg.26b28729792e1505cf7a5435ed89f87a.jpg




  8. I just ordered some for my wife for sleep and pain. She will test it out tonight. Im not allowed to post the website. But for people with a disability, low income, or a veteran, you get 60 percent off. I bought her a bottle of 50mg cbd capsules. 40 in the bottle. Regular price. $90. It only cost us $36 with the discount. Free shipping and no tax. You have to upload an award letter or a doctors note or some other document options. It says on the website what documents are acceptable. The brand is lazarus naturals. They sell tinctures, pills, creams and other stuff. 


    Edit: please pm me if you would like to know where to order this from.

    All over the counter pain remedies have some dangers. You are aware of the concerns with aspirin but Tylenol (acetaminophen) is tough on the liver and all too many have died from liver failure after taking too much or mixing it with alcohol or other liver-heavy medications.

    I know this doesn’t help much and headaches can make life very difficult—I know this from my own king experience with them. One thing recently has given me surprising relief—Mestinon. Though I started it for help with PEM (the dreadful post exertional symptoms), it has also cleared up my headaches which is a great boon! 

    I take mestinon. The only thing it does for me is make me have to take it lol. My next appointment with my specialist im just gonna be like this isnt working peeps. Hmm. Ill just try and avoid taking any meds for headaches if possible.

    I have a CSF leak which causes splitting orthostatic headaches along with all the other goodies. I take co-codamol (combination of codeine and paracetamol) and also ibuprofen. Also use cooling gel pads on forehead. Only lying down really helps though. 

    Aspirin at that dose is not advisable for daily use, although I can understand you being desperate for some relief. 

    Due to my own experience, I would highly recommend this. It may be high, low or normal but is definitely worth looking at for anyone with severe headaches needing to take daily medication. I raised concerns about my own intracranial pressure from the start (granted I was concerned about raised rather than low ICP) but no-one listened. 

    The person who would check this is a neurologist. 

    An optician can also check your eyes for signs of raised, but not low, ICP.

    I see my neuro later this month. I will bring it up to him.

    @Derek1987 my eyes and forehead hurt when I have a sinus headache from allergies. Could it be that? It is that season. ... You asked if Tylenol is different than aspirin - it also is a NSAID but is metabolized by the liver and does not have stomach side effects like aspirin and ibuprofen. My husband gets really bad cluster headaches and he takes Tylenol and caffeine for them, it helps him. 

    Its been going on for months. Could be stress/tension headaches. I might try tylenol as ive gone through a bottle of 500 aspirin way too quickly. Sadly my body does not even tolerate  caffeine anymore. A can coke will send me into extreme anxiety with sweaty hands and even feet at times. I used to live on 5 hour energy and energy drinks from my early 20s. But i suspect that was this disease with extreme fatigue but hadnt progressed to where it has me now.

    I prefer advil. It tends to help me with swelling too. Plus, while Asperin lowers my blood pressure, advil/ibuprofen raises my blood pressure, which is what helps me.

    But I read that continual use of advil/ibuprofen is bad for the heart and kidneys, so I try to limit its use.

    Do you know what type of headache you get? Where do they hurt? Everywhere? Temples? Base of spine? Behind the nose? There are a ton of possible causes of headaches. Are they continual, or do they happen at certain times of the day?

    They are random. Sometimes i wake up with them. Or they just come from nowhere. My eyes and forehead and temples hurt. I woke up with one today. Its been there since i woke up. Have not taken any aspirin. If i did, it would go away.
