unfortunately, improved but not right yet. still using stick. looks like a quiet weekend coming up, which I don't mind but miss exercise and getting out. no chance of earning dollars.

we do approve. ladybird got so excited she tried to clap her wings and nearly fell over.

this morning received 'phone call from RACV, which organised the foster home for my cat. they visited him last week and say he is spoilt and happy. will send me some photographs after Xmas.

enjoy your weekend.

good news things are progressing as planned. you certainly worked for it. by all means get a second opinion but don't leave it too long to decide what to do. it would be tragic to waste all the time and effort you have put into getting a good result by letting the bone grow too hard.

good.

had to cancel because have been unable to bear weight on leg for the last week and unable to walk without hanging onto the furniture. physio came today, said the gluteal muscle is causing the problem. gave me a treatment, told me to take stronger pain killers for the moment and to use a stick even indoors to take the weight of it. also gave me some exercises to stretch it. will 'phone me tomorrow and, if necessary, come back friday.

last night computer froze, would not shut down even when unplugged from the wall. finally disconnected everything. couldn't use mouse but very reluctantly opened using touchpad. I'd also started getting problems with spark and could not access the message boards. sent a help request to spark and today it's working again. it's bad to get too hungry and you might feel happier tracking again. at least you can chew foods now. have disposed of meat pies. friend said she'll take ice cream but forgot. it will keep until I see her again. received three packets of vanilla yoghourt for children this week, which I hadn't ordered and two packs of mushrooms instead of one. think i'll be able to fit them into my eating program.

surgeon's computer acting up to. bone growing back nicely. i can chew anything. he wants me to go to his teacher to have tooth and cyst removed before the bone grows too hard and gets in the way. cyst moved away from nerve, but tooth still lying on the nerve. wants me to be hospitalized under general anesthesia. i want a second opinion.

stomach settling down.

why canceled neurosurgeon. feeling better or not up to it?

company saturday night. so far i have cookies for them which i hope not to eat.

today came home starved and ate two slices pizza for lunch at 4 PM. yogurt salad and broccoli for supper. hope my stomach approves. i think i will start tracking as of today. i lost no weight with my tube.

no patience for meditation.

not happy you haven't been out. need daylight and company.

thanks. she wanted to bring popcorn, but i'm afraid for my tube in mouth. will see surgeon tomorrow.

i'm not sorry you missed the food, but i am sorry you missed the company. and occasional good food is needed too. can you buy/get prepared food. fresh fruit is minimal effort. prepared salad fixins. i get cut/washed romaine lettuce. frozen veggies.i can get beans canned without salt. milk and cheese. nuts. i cook very little and still overeat.

stomach improving. gas still feels like hunger.

very slow progress. had to cancel physiotherapy, going to a meeting and exercise class so very quiet day, which I didn't mind. at least I have plenty of time for meditation.

glad you walked. worries me I haven't even been outside for nearly a week.

enjoy the play - friend might bring things to eat which aren't a threat. missed out on a lot of "chances" to eat things I shouldn't but, on the other hand, I'm inclined to eat whatever is easiest as I don't feel like making an effort.

hope stomach behaves soon.

slightly more stable today but still have some way to go.

hope you sort out insurance, otherwise I imagine it will be a big expense.

finished writing Christmas cards and a friend, who came for an enjoyable visit, will post them. other friend I mentioned before came out of hospital on Friday.

obviously no exercise but have been meditating and being good with food until today. found half a bar of dark chocolate in the cupboard, which must have been there for ages, and ate some of it. I only ate it because I was bored and didn't enjoy it.

enjoy the rest of the weekend!

lol to recent message. gift them fast.

previous message unbelievable. how disturbing nice things can be. hope you've recuperated.

have both antivirus long time. they catch different things. in the beginning they were calling each other viruses, but i stopped them.
i don't mean to use touchpad. but it's there and reacts when thumb goes near it. i told it not to be so sensitive. next step is to shut it off completely.

last night. ate awful sweet thing that neighbor made. pure corn syrup, i suspect. and two slices of other neighbor's delicious banana cake with sugar. walked tonight.

they're out to get us! received a large tub of ice cream and four frozen meat pies - which I hadn't asked for - with online food delivery. rang to tell them and they "generously" told me to keep them. hope to pass them on to a friend who has a lot of visitors.

I'm amazed it took so long. even I knew you shouldn't have two antivirus programs and I'm no technician. I didn't think you were using the touchpad.

still far from good so cancelled bookclub and breakup dinner. all I wanted was to lie down and rest but four deliveries plus 'phone calls and a visit from a neighbour made it late afternoon before I could lie down. was woken about an hour later by persistent knocking at the door. neighbour came to tell me a friend had 'phoned me and someone else came to see me. they were worried and rang to ask her to check up on me. she said she'd 'phone them for me and I can catch up tomorrow. it's nice that people care but I did need to rest.

I hope it was just because of the cold or the lack of recent exercise that your legs didn't co-operate.

I always thought it was inadvisable and unnecessary to have two antivirus programs, just because they might clash. also do you have Norton? it has a bad reputation for causing problems. whatever the reason, I hope you get it sorted soon and without having to reinstall operating system.

very disappointing day. not capable of going to Christmas Dinner. not bothered by missing the food or even too much by losing what I paid but was looking forward to the company. just have to hope for a better day tomorrow.

look after yourself.

have brought my computer home. several people found my 2 antivrus programs were going into deadlock. i had updated one. no, they are laptops with built in keyboards. i have an external one, but no room for it.

don't like this. related to unreal feeling? wow. subliminals!! hope it's that and fixable. do you have a device in your heart? i hate doctors!

very good news. he didn't expect this improvement either. i say go full steam ahead with physio. don'tstop a good thing. not falling is very good idea.

good results would be nice.

thought i had a cold this morning but feel better now.better go take vitamins.

good and good. maybe they'll fix it now.

is it an external keyboard?.

very mixed day. yesterday, started losing balance and bumping into things in afternoon so went to bed earlier than I usually even have my evening meal. still not good and had to hold onto person who took me to visit specialist, something I wouldn't normally do. only thing I wondered is could going up a level in subliminal mp3 have affected my heart, even though cardiologist said they were safe. will stop using them for now and go back to ordinary tapes.

now for the good news. orthopaedic surgeon said I'd done a lot better than he expected and if I hadn't conscientiously followed an exercise program result wouldn't have been so good. told me to congratulate physio but I can cut down to once a week. probably will not be much more, if any, improvement now. only things I have to avoid are having a fall or trying to lift anything which is too heavy..

if only we could get a good result with our other problems!

do you think you will go on thyroid meds?

hope you soon get computer fixed. my main one is working OK at the moment [fingers crossed] but problems with emails on 'phone. will probably have to take laptop into provider as well if I want it fixed. I wouldn't bother but I may need it some time. found out yesterday friend is in hospital. was supposed to be in for half day but over a week now. rang her this morning but she doesn't know when she'll be allowed home.

slept badly - very tired but pleasant day so walked and earned dollar. [$86\ have gone up to next level of meditation program I bought. don't know how well I'm doing it but like it.

glad you're dancing. hope you enjoyed class.

sorry about pain. glad you went to class and got a ride.

i don't bother to record food. this week i couldn't. health food guy says to increase exercise and get on thyroid medicine.

computer is theirs. i dragged it in today. of course, it refuses to misbehave in the office. tech guy let windows update. i'm typing in my office and so far it works. wonder if it's my ISP. don't want to take it home til i know, but have to go to dance class soon. will keep trying to make it misbehave.

physio back after absence of two weeks. treatment painful but he wanted me to go to exercise class. got a lift home.

earned dollar $85. are you not tracking because you don't want to or can't?

does computer belong to you or to office? had to re-download a program today so keeping fingers crossed. booting up very slowly but can live with that.

good luck!

disappointed you were rained out.

never did video yesterday. went to see fundraiser play instead. also good, but...

still need to exercise today. not earning dollars cause either not tracking or not exercising enough for big enough deficit. need to fix.

computer not behaving at all. need to drag it in.

keep your EYE ON THE BALL. what is the goal?will this action get you closer?

another hard-earned dollar yesterday but had computer problems which took ages to sort out - if it isn't food it's computers. seems to be OK today.

pity about the oil pulling. wondered if it would be difficult for you.

you seem to be doing well. are you earning?

planning to go to "art in the park" with a friend this afternoon and will take thermos so we won't need to go into the café'. it's was raining pretty heavily earlier on so just have to hope for the best.

enjoy the rest of the weekend.

rest as needed. there's no ignoring the body and not paying for it.

hope they figure out something good.

i'm pretty good, thanks.

oil pulling hurt the tube in my mouth, so i stopped.

we had company today. I ate lots of fruit and nuts as we chatted (enjoyably). meals ok. what a challenge this weight thing is, especially as soon as i get near another human.

raining. never left the house. will do a DVD.

much cooler today so walked again $83. also had long chat with neighbour.

must admit I feel better afterwards if I do have a rest.

trying to remember if the "unreality" started/became worse when double vision problems really kicked in. am seeing neurosurgeon before xmas so will ask if there could be any connection. also see GP this month. borrowed audio book from local library.

how are you? are you still doing oil pulling?

glad to listen to you, but i don't like what i hear. many challenges. wish i knew how to help.

if you feel you need to rest, maybe that's what you should do.

your physio is something of a wellness coach, but maybe you need more. ?

is this feeling of unreality something new that you need to look into? as if you didn't have enough already.

you need companionship, but can't get to it often enough.

this season isn't helping.

more audio books?

no dollar today. cleaner's car broke down and she arrived very late. humid again so slept for a couple of hours this afternoon.

even a slow loss, if it's consistent. can make a difference. why, with all these professionals we consult, nobody seems to be able to sort out our problems, I don't know.

I worry myself with this constant exhaustion and feeling of unreality even if I have a reasonable night's sleep. find I'm frequently just sitting gazing into space because it's too much effort to stand up. also scared I might collapse when I go for walk. heart, myasthenia, dietary lack, etc.?

doing gums but probably not as thoroughly as I should and drinking is, as always, a problem.

glad I have you to "talk" to.

thanks. made a mistake - dinner is next week.

have an old mouse with cord which runs on power. just keep it in case I have problems with cordless.

of course!!

good for you walking. it's so hard and I know it would help me if I lost too.
have been earning dollars but walking doesn't get any easier. $83.

only slept for about two hours last night so tired. felt a bit better than i had for quite a while and don't think i'll be passing any germs on now. not so humid today. felt a bit weak and wobbly but we earned our dollar.

are you asking if mouse has battery? my cordless one definitely does. touch pad would drive me crazy. can still touch type although not as quickly as before. usually look at screen while i do now so I can see errors immediately.

sorry today was hard and you lost assistant early. at least i hope you enjoyed dance class.

friend came round and confirmed booking for a group of us to go to a Xmas Dinner on 22nd. i can tell i'll be having a hard time with ladybird this month.

wish you were better.

mouse doesn't have a battery?? mouse works. i don't use touchpad. when thumbs get near touchpad, it moves my cursor while i'm typing and text gets garbled. i don't see cause i gotta look at keyboard as i type.

why should today be too much effort? i was not in a great mood and i don't know why. light day at work. getting to dance class was a hassle.

expect light few months at work except for learning new stuff which should be interesting. asst went awol for last two weeks. i thought he'd work for about 2 more weeks.

my computer keeps freezing. don't worry if i can't get on.

wise not to do oil now. hope u r better soon.

yes, time flies.

worked all night. i'm a nut. went to engagement party. had salads and a sliver of cake. suspect salads had sugar. i'd be so much more productive on sugar and coffee and such. but sick!

my cursor keeps moving on its own. happened before. i think touchpad super sensitive.

better move me.

have read some people have results with other problems, though most don't say so. suppose it's possible as many diseases are linked to tooth problems. did read that if 20 is too much start at 5 and gradually increase it. received my coconut oil this afternoon but at present it's frozen into a solid block.

thought I was recovering but developed irritating cough today. I sound like an unhappy sea lion!

have banned all visitors so will be quiet weekend.

stay healthy!

glad you posted. sorry you weren't better and had to cancel. is disappointing. usual unfortunate bittersweet!

i wasn't aware of any detox. btw, coconut oil is solid at room temp except on very hot day. had to let it melt in my mouth. swished only little while.

get well quickly

spark didn't like me earlier.

you're doing well.

thought cold was improving yesterday but not so good today. had arranged to go to amateur review with friends tonight but thought it wouldn't be fair in case I spread germs to others. disappointed because I know some of the performers. one slight [very slight] positive slant is that I won't be able to indulge in snacks at the interval.

just made online food order, including coconut oil. would have preferred to buy it from health store but don't know when i'll get to shopping centre again. will try oil drilling tomorrow. are you feeling any "withdrawal" symptoms due to detox?

hope you have a good weekend.

tried 2 short oil pulling sessions. first i swallowed some of the coconut oil. i fear it irritated the tube in mu mouth which is a little annoyed/annoying right now.

yes, the world has it in for us, but we will prevail.good u r not tempted. give them away before u r. enjoy the cd's.

no dinner tomorrow. went to party tonight. ate little during day. overate yummy, greasy pasta and salad (without dressing). some chic peas were only protein option since i did not want franks and such. but at least no sweets. drank water.

raining hard so hardly walked. just did 12 min video.

lots of sweets at work today. some looked really good. i had a prune!

thanks.

the efficiency of the medical profession! at least I managed to reschedule surgeon's appointment until next month. thought I might have to wait until next year.

oil pulling looks interesting. not sure if I have the patience.

another quiet day but hitting the sleeping tablets until I get over cold because sleep is such an important part of recovery.

I'm definitely out of shape and not exercising at the moment isn't helping.

you should be sleeping peacefully by now.

$80, I think.

annoying having to put back cardiology appointment. stormy day but went to exercise class. nasty moment when all power went off and screen went black. didn't function properly when I first turned it on again later so wasted time trying to fix it but it's OK again now.

I've never heard of oil pulling. what is it?

glad you took turtle. ladybird says you did well.

feel as if I've got a cold coming on this evening. can cancel tomorrow's arrangements but have medical appt. wed and need to vote Thursday. could be expensive if I don't go.

sorry you couldn't sleep. me, neither. think stomache caused it. slept late. how will i go to sleep tonight and get up tomorrow.

finally weighed myself. 141 and 1/2. feared worse. turtle looked around for ladybird, but can't see her. get someone else to pull out your scale. don't do anything we'll regret.

did my gums today. even swished coconut oil for 20 min while checking email. have you read about "oil pulling"? doubt it will become a habit.

occasionally do a few facial exercises. some were hurting the tube in my mouth and some fell by the wayside like any good habit. i include some for sleep apnea, sometimes. another "to-do".

finally got prescription for blood test. not sure where it got stuck. anyway, i don't think it's right, so i didn't go. will have to postpone cardiologist appt.

sleepless night - tried going from one bedroom to other but could not get comfortable on either bed. tired, temperature too high outside so didn't exercise.

know how you feel.

if only! my scales are somewhere under the bed but didn't dare look for them because I was afraid I might not be able to get up. might risk it sometime if I'm having a good day.

that's one of the few good things I've been doing regularly. join me.

notice there's a booklet on looking younger in one of the local magazines. haven't read it. are you still doing the facial exercises

hope doc has good answer for physiotherapist.

we are allowed occasional (moderate) lapses as long as we get right back on the horse.

good you are getting rich.

haven't done any work yet. brain is restless. body isn't. and my hips, or something, hurt. healthier for heart to move body.

blood test tomorrow in preparation for cardiologist on tuesday. he will want to give me medicine. i fear i'm relatively fat. haven't weighed myself in a while. is your weight tracker up to date?

i guess my heart and, because of it, my thyroid and my apnea, are my current big worries. i'm assuming i'll be able to avoid major surgery for the big cyst in my jaw. must start exercising seriously again.

wouldn't hurt to do my gums. (you, too.) they say they can affect the heart.

didn't want to give me printed copy but insisted. didn't learn anything new but beautiful views of pacemaker. physiotherapist has told me to ask surgeon about something on one of the slides.

so glad growth is benign.

dinner last night was very enjoyable but we made some good and some bad choices. earned dollar.

sad about colleague's father.

enjoy your weekend and don't spend it all working.

what did you learn from xray?

thanks. me, too.

was told too cold to walk. don't think it was so bad, but my nose is running anyway. am foolishly staying up and doing work that could nicely wait till tomorrow.

coworker's father passed away. sad situation.

good. thanks.

I would have to do the converting but it would be good to know what's needed , cost, etc.

share your fear of radiation and hope your results are good. had shoulder x-rays yesterday.
won't take my blood because of medication.

earned dollar yesterday but not today. shopping centre, took advantage of good day and did a load of laundry, then physio session. will meditate but too tired to walk before dark.
