Wed, Sep 9 12:57pm · Your tips: Making communication clear when wearing a facemask in Hearing Loss

I'm trying to train myself to check my hearing aids to make sure they have not slipped off every time I remove my mask. I've come very close to losing them several times when I've discovered they were just "barely" hanging there after I'd taken off mask. The tie masks do not stay on me well and slip down, so have to use elastic….its all a challenge that is for sure!

I love the piano playing at Mayo! I remember the first time I went there and was nervous about finding my way around – hearing the piano being played and the people listening nearby gave me a feeling I was at a place where people cared and wanted me to feel welcome.

Thank you for your information/experiences about IBS with constipation. My IBS has developed into this type in the last few years and I, like you, find I feel better and have less digestive issues if I “graze” my way through the day. I’ve been taking fiber supplements every day, but sometimes don’t find them as effective as they use to be….so perhaps MiraLAX/ClearLAX might work better, and a possible replacement for the fiber pills. Thanks again for your post.

Sorry, even though you said not to laugh, I couldn’t help it as I read your post about the Squatty Potty – great writing in making a serious subject easy and fun to read!! I’ve never heard of the Squatty Potty, but will be watching to see if anyone else has, and what they think of it. Thanks again for a fun read and putting a smile on my face…..

So much I don’t know…or don’t understand about IBS. I am grateful for all the information I can get. My stomach feels sore/achy for long periods of time and then suddenly, just gets better and goes away. Sometimes I can go for months where I can eat just about any type of food I want with no problem, and then – suddenly it changes and I have to be so careful about every little. I am always searching for advice and answers! Thank you.

I don’t believe I have internal hemorroids, and if I do, my internist has never mentioned it. I really had never considered hemorroids might contribute to IBS, but I can see that there certainly could be connection! Appreciate very much the information – another subject to add to conversation at my next doctor’s appointment. Thank you.

What you stated is one of the reasons I decided not to continue taking osteoporosis drugs after stopping Fosamax. My understanding was that I would need to commit to staying on these drugs for the rest of my life, and that really scared me to think that whatever side-effects or other health issues I might develop, I would lose the benefits if I stopped them, and bones possibly becoming even more brittle than they ever were. I'm hoping the drug companies will eventually offer something that will be safe and won't hurt me whether I'm taking the drug or hurt me if I choose to stop taking it. Until then, I'm following the "natural program" like you, Debbie.
