    I'm surprised you are kept on antibiotics for so long. When I was in the hospital in February because of a bronchitis or pneumonia, they stopped antibiotics after 10 or 11 days, and I thought that...

    My blood pressure is very low, too. A few years ago I discovered that pressing my fist into my lower belly pushes up my shoulders, and I sit much more comfortable. Since then I buy a motorcycle...

    As I read this, the parcel service brought exactly that Mycrodacyn60 (as the follow up product of Dermacyn), same bottle, just 6 Euro more. Maybe I shop around a bit for other pharmacies, but I doubt...

    I wouldn't do antibiotics if only guessing. Have you checked out what is written here about Microcyn? Maybe you have some kind of a burn out? Fatigue could be stress related. What did change in your...

    There seems to happen some change here in Germany. The pharmacy where I ordered my Dermacyn told me, it's not on the market any more. They will send me a follow-up product (forgot the name, and it is...

    Trainman, I think, you are doing great for being in such a stressful situation. Others would have probably given up by now. It's good to be careful with priorities, realizing one is getting burnt...

    I just tried the fennel-apple-bluecheese-salad from the second video, and it was absolutely amazing! And very easy to make. This opens a whole new world. Didn't have the cherries and pistazios; used...

    I'm not so familiar with US-laws and regulations. What support would you actually get for staying at home? How much money or how many hours? What support can you organize from family/volunteers? And...

    She is a PT; usually here in Germany you only get PT over the years (2 hours/week), so they sometimes take over parts of OT, and emptying the leg bag or making my bed is also good training of some...

    I very much agree with the importance of talking therapy. At the rehab in Roswell we had a great psychologist. The one thing I remember the most was that he told me, that after an injury like that...

    conflict with my PT

    This is just a small issue, but as a handicapped person I sometimes struggle with boundaries towards caregivers or - in this case - PT. I have her for about 2 months now and she is good and nice. But...

    There is a technique in NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming) called "Reframing": it means, the fact stays the same, but you give it a different "frame". A friend had told me about it way back before my...
