Great topic, Guys. Looking forward to seeing how you to handle it. Should be a good one!

And my apartment hunting was a bust. Everything nice in our small town had a waiting list a mile long which only left the scary parts of town. Well I tried. There's always ATS to help hide from real life.

Anyways, good luck Ian and NYK!

That's the way it's looking. My MIL even owns apartments down here but they're either full, under remodeling too, or have a waiting list as well. It just sucks because it's a very small town and only about 5 decent complexes.

So oh well. But if I tumble down the stairs again with another laundry basket (as was the case last night thanks to all the tools), I'm going to my mama's house.

Thanks for the support. I'll stop whining now. It's just stressful and depressing.

Much like Ashley's crated fixtures, the throne will remain exactly where it is, for a while yet.

Ashley, sorry to hear about your life-logistical hassles, but it sounds like you're on track to an intermediate solution. It's always fun to stake out a little 'mini-environment' for a while. Gives an opportunity to 're-coalesce' the important things in life, without the accumulation of the past. So despite the bother of moving, rearranging, settling, etc., I'm sure you'll find positive aspects to the 'adventure'.

Why arent you letting some workers come in to do the job?

They do now. Either throughout the day with my husband (typically weekends) or after hours if they want over time. But the rule is I don't like being alone with them. They have to work on the 'real' jobs during the day and come here on off times. But when the time comes for hubby to be away, it would just make me really uncomfortable due to some stuff that happened to me in the past. Most people who know us know the rule is no men in the house when hubby is gone. Except for a few close friends we know really well. But no stop-bys, workers, or company when he's gone. I just don't like it.

I'm sure you'll find positive aspects to the 'adventure'.

Yes once it's done. If I'm still walking and am able to see due to cataracts by then.

morning pub

does anybody know how to cure a hurting shoulder?
my doc is treating me with stimulation current but it doesn.t work, massage can.t be prescripted due to the budget policy.

i will see an orthopedist but the appointment is not earlier than feb 11.

now i am sitting around in pain with an hot water bottle on the shoulder - don.t imagine it.
anything else i can do?

Hi orange, sorry to hear about the shoulder. I guess what you do depends upon whether it's muscle pain or bone pain. Heat helps.

Here's some advice: even if you think you're 'relaxing' your shoulder and arm, you'd be surprised how much work is still being done by your shoulder, and how much pressure just holding your arm steady can apply.

Try a triangular sling. Here's way-too-detailed instructions:

You can just take a square of cloth of some kind, and fold it in half diagonally, instead of using a triangular bandage, if you don't have one.

Hope you feel better.

Not sure if you have this in Germany but do you have access to Ibuprofen? Four of those with some heating packs should at the very least help. Don't know what else to do.

no bone pain
it depends on the muscles, all hardened to much

i will try that triangular sling, i remember it once helped, yeah and sitting here typing isnt very good as well. heat helps i know, that.s why i am sitting with the hot water bottle
but meanwhile the pan radiadets down to the ellbow.

reply to post by AshleyD

sure we got ibu ashley, i even got them in my cupboard, but i don.t like them
paracetamol helps better with me
but usually i guess that painkillers don.t work for the back? right or wrong?

i will give it a try!

thanks guys

it sounds like a trapped nerve if the pain is radiating to the elbow - try some anti inflammatory gel or ibuprofen, although if you have a delicate stomach or asthma you shouldn't take ibuprofen.

Otherwise, strap the water bottle to your shoulder (back of)then cross your arms in front and grip each opposite shoulder, then turn SLIGHTLY against the direction you are pulling.

Also try these exercises - if it's a trapped nerve these will give you relief, but combine with heat.

Hope this helps and feel better soon

Hey OL -

Have you tried to get a muscle relaxant? There is something in the states called SOMA -- not as good as what Huxley imagined -- hang on one sec and I will go find out its pharma name... it is carisoprodol.

"Carisoprodol is called a centrally acting muscle relaxant. It works on the nerves to relieve muscle pain. It may also relieve pain by calming your nervous system." it and see what you think.

I take it (with an anti-flammatory, ibu) right before bed as I cannot function on it in the day. It makes me sleepy. The most often I have had to take it was four nights in a row, it absolutely works for shoulder and neck spasms/tensions. I tend to get the shoulder spasm under my right blade and if I do not/can not lay off of the PC, it will move into my neck and arm rendering me incapable of normal movement and in crazy pain.

I am all for yoga and natureopathic treatments, but also believe it is the 21st century and we did not get hover-cars or jet-packs, but by God we got painkillers and sleepaids (for long flights or insomnia) and I see no reason not to make ocassional use of them when necessary

It is not an 'abused' drug so I don't imagine your MD will have any issues prescribing some, and may well be OTC in Germany. Check it out.

Well, still here for now, although outside it looks like it snowed but it didn't. It's all sleet and frozen rain. And it's not over yet. Luckily, there isn't much on the trees here, not like last time, so we may be okay power-wise.

And I've got good news. Good news for me, anyway. Doc says my ankle is healing better than he expected, so maybe no surgery in my future. He was quite impressed that I can walk on it "naked" (without any support like a wrap or brace). I go back in a month and we'll know more, but in the meantime he said it's okay for me to ride (well, as soon as I can get my boots on!).

Many thanks to Sky. That was an awesome debate. Also, thanks to whoever the judges were for their very thorough critiques. I'll definitely keep their suggestions in mind for the next go.

Congrats AshleyD, and to Skyfloating as well - that was a good debate

On a different note, who would've thought that propolis would work on my ear and throat.

On the mend
