Sun, Jun 16 2:46am · Lyme Disease and its Co-Infections, Morgellons Disease and Parasites in Skin Health

@lita0417, I am so very sorry. I sense your pain, your discouragement, your hopelessness, etc. I have no quick answers for you, but I have felt all the emotions you are currently experiencing. Life is so danged rough sometimes that we wonder if we can get through the next moment, much less the day or the week or any future. Please believe me when I tell you I am proof that miracles do happen. Hang on. I am rooting for you, and I know many other good people here are also sending good thoughts your way.

@luckyhunterjs, I have no answers for you, but I want you to know my heart goes out to you. So hard to understand some of what happens in our lives. Best of luck to you. Stay strong.

@patriciagsr, I have never experienced what you have. My battles are different. However, I recognize your pain and frustration and want you to know you have my support. I will be watching for updates from you and, hopefully, you will find some answers from this wonderful group of warriors.

Mon, Jun 10 12:23am · I have Dupuytren's Contracture Disease . How can I cope with this? in Bones, Joints & Muscles

@jakedduck1, yes, Jake, I could open my hand almost totally, including my ring finger. However, it was very painful. In fact, it got to the point that my hand had a deep ache all the time. That went away within two weeks after the injection and my hand started to flatten out.

@rosemarya, since my injection, my hand has totally flattened out and become pain free. However, I now have a trigger finger which I did not have before. If the trigger finger becomes too bothersome, my doctor said they will go in and cut the ligaments causing the trigger finger.

Mon, Jun 3 1:15pm · Anxiety and disbelief over sudden hearing loss and tinnitus in Hearing Loss

@chuckm, my hearing loss forced me to retire because I simply could not hear people on the phone, many of whom became irritated when asked to repeat what they just said. Terribly disheartening. Even friends and family frequently become impatient. The worst are those who say, “Never mind…” when I cannot hear them. Trust me: I feel your pain…

Sun, Jun 2 1:52pm · Fibromyalgia in Autoimmune Diseases

@tazscott, at my local community center, I pay $3 per session, and I pay $5 per session at my local health wellness center. Each class is typically 50 to 60 minutes in duration. I find two classes a week works well for me.

@sundance6, I have taken both Chair Yoga (which does not require getting on the floor [two TKR] and getting up), as well as Tai Chi. Both are wonderful in terms of stretching , flexibility, and balance. Both give you an incredible workout. Make sure you find an instructor that will allow you to work at your own pace and ability. We are all in different spots on the path to wellness.
