  1. I am an idiot

    Well went to hospital weekend before last with bad gas pains in bowel and they did xray and sent me home with Movicol. Took a good dose and 3 senna and cleaned myself out over the next couple of days. I noticed on Wednesday & Thursday last that my legs really started kicking early afternoon and had a good BM after first in morning, went quick and good consistency & shape (used MB) So figured that peristalsis was somehow raising it's head where after 2 years on senna I thought it was gone. ...

  2. Rhinitis and spinal cord injury

    Rhinitis and spinal cord injury
    I am a C5-6 SCI and at age 70 have developed non allergic rhinitis initiated by
    temperature change. If I sit at my computer and the refrigeration comes on
    behind me, drainage goes to my chest and I have congestion and breathing problems. This is somewhat solved by wearing a hat. Going instead and outside can trigger the rhinitis. I would be very interested
    in knowing how others with this situation compensate. Thank you, Fred Cheshire

I know; not smart. My only thought was to save ...

  4. Seizures and stuff

    Last night whilst chatting to my Mum, I had multiple, intense seizures. This isn't abnormal. When they occur, my seizures often happen two or three at a time with a brief respite in between. They usually coincidence with my monthly cycle, so I'm prepared and my service dog is always with me, so I don't worry anymore. My Mum isn't used to them as I am; apparently it frightened her. I get fuzzy and I cannot form words well during my postictal state, so unfortunately, I don't remember well. It's an ...

  5. Fine

    We've all probably heard the mnemonic for FINE: f-@!ed up insecure neurotic and emotional. In the spirit of positive thinking, something I've been working on a lot as a part time pessimist, I've come up with a new one, FINE: fiercely independent naturally empowered. It may need some work to really pop, but I feel it's an improvement to the above definition that constantly left me feeling like there was something I needed to apologize for or improve about myself.

    We're all works in ...
