Title: How is everyone doing?
Post by: Dragonfly on April 12, 2018, 10:46:30 am
Hi everyone,

How is everyone doing? Getting sick of winter?

I miss hearing from members of the forum. To name a few: Luckylou, Soozan, Rich, Senacron man. I am sorry if I have left anyone out. My memory isn't the best anymore.

As many members have said. Anyone who would like to post is very welcome to. We are a friendly, caring, non-judgmental group. We like to support each other. We learn things from each other. If you post I am sure we will learn something valuable from you. This forum has helped me a great deal. I consider these people on the forum as my friends.

It was very hard for me to post when I first joined the forum. Now I realize that no one is going to judge me and only support me. I was always very scared I would write the wrong thing and hurt someone.

If anyone feels like it please post. We would be glad to hear from you.

Hello Dragonfly. I agree with you that this is a good place to post. In regards to my health, well I'm getting older and I'm not doing so gracefully LOL. It seems that every time I take a step forward something happens. Broke my wrist 2 wks ago and that seems to be how the last 6mths have gone. Nothing tragic or horrifying, just a lot of problems. The good news is that between the cancer (treated last fall) and the after effects of the treatments, I lost 45 lbs and it was weight that I needed to lose. So I guess that is the bright side. Take Care. paul m

Paul, didn't know about the cancer....or forgot....good about the 45 pounds.  My older brother who has prostate cancer (maybe could've been nipped in the bud....."I don't need to see a Dr.....nothing wrong with me.")

I fell (for no reason) outside my bldg on my was the garden, so pain, no nothing.  Went to Emergency, but found nothing wrong.  Someone in Emergency noticed I'm I'm a part time (?) patient in the Geriatric section of St. Michaels.

Because I joined that clinic, (I guess everyone gets this) - I'm getting a hearing test, MRI, sleep lab session.  Never had sleep lab session - has anyone here had one?  Someone told me there are LOTS of sleep labs in Toronto...I thought there was only one - Toronto Western Hospital.  Re all those tests - good! - I'm not so scared of MRI, maybe a little hard of hearing - a family trait.

I've sleepwalked about 4 times in my life...only the last six months...walk a couple of feet, and mess up my desk, maybe move things around a bit.  Maybe the sleep study will find out why?

(my second sleep lab was cancelled - turns out they got enuf data from my first one)

I was depressed a couple of days, first time in a long time, thanks to Mirtazapine (?).  Better today.

I was overwhelmed with redoing my place, tidying up (the usual!).  I have trouble (sometimes a LOT of trouble) with mechanical things, like putting my new bed frame together.  I think there are some parts missing, like bolts, which I bought in a hardware store.

It's on hold for now, as I have a ton on ironing to catch up on.  My mattress is on the floor (threw out old one).  Feels a little odd, but.....

I was only depressed a couple of days.

Since then, I've been tidying up and "renovating" more.

After tidying up, I found 4 pairs of scissors I was missing.  Some were spares, others were for cutting heavy stuff like cardboard.
