Learned yesterday that he thinks he has two cats, instead of one. 

Maybe he's gone downhill quickly?  He didn't think this when I saw him last week.......or, it doesn't mean much.

Hello Sarahruth. Sorry to hear about your struggles. I agree with you that the illness can be as hard on the spouse as it is on the sufferer. Hopefully your husband will find a way to get better and ease the pressure that you are under. Take Care. paul m

The longer we go through this journey, the longer I am starting to get worse like my husband. This is tough. Really tough. I am drawn to depression because everything is so hard. I am the breadwinner and the family everything. Tough times and it is really hard. Going on 5 years now. Hard to not become like them.

General Discussion / Used my cell phone today - first time.
« Last post by Pleeb on March 06, 2019, 10:02:34 PM »
I got a cellphone in August (?).  I had a mental block about it - it'll be complicated.  I'm kind of afraid of technology, but not really - I'm on the internet a lot.

Took my phone to Samsung today....it died, and wouldn't charge.  They'll notice I've never used it, and slap me in the face!   ::)

Turns out, it worked when the Samsung person used HER cable....weird!  Just bought MY cable from Bell.


Didn't make any calls today, but did some housekeeping, without looking at my Android for Dummies.


Peter

I procrastinate on "difficult, complicated" things....cell phone, income tax (someone doing it for me this year).

Peace, thanks, and sorry to hear about your diagnosis difficulties.

Speaking of medication, I'm forgetting to take my Mirtazapine and Melatonin too often! :o

I take them when I go to sleep.

I don't forget to take Wellbutrin XL (I still take that), as I take it when I get up.

General Discussion / How to refer to the properties of a product!!!

With regard to 'properties' obviously in the sense of characteristics, quality/qualities, and/or attributes.

The answers to these questions may be obvious to everybody else.

May one use the expression 'product properties' to refer to the properties of a product?

May one refer to the properties of a product by using a possessive pronoun, singular or plural as appropriate, i.e. 'its properties' or 'their properties'.

Hello Mytamhuyet and welcome. I don't think that too many studies have been on medications that are past there "Best before date". I know letting them freeze or get too hot in the car can impact the medication. However I have no idea about using old meds. I would imagine that it varies from med to med. Take Care. paul m
