Good morning. Wow. Well, the GI system seems well on its way to normal. Alas for me, I lost weight, and not in a good way! Cannot wait to eat a normal meal. However, I'm up to mashed potatoes (no fats) so.. not long now!
How's things going with everyone? I feel like I ran miles, and didn't, so that's... yeah, long day ahead!
Anyone here have experience needing to change time zones, medication-wise? My epilepsy/PTSD meds are fairly sensitive. I only get a few hours (3 maximum) of "leeway" on being "late", so when Hubby and I go to Europe next year (and it's on the calendar, hah!) ... I can't just go from US Eastern to central Europe and end up taking what is my night meds in their morning and vice versa. For one thing, my epilepsy meds knock me out and I take those at bedtime. So... I was thinking of ways to work backwards or time the travel arrival if possible? Ideas, anyone? (Besides the obvious "work your medication times backwards and start living on Europe time before you get there".)
This of course presupposes we will do it, but... A month in Europe? It's huge for us. The last Big Hurrah. Money be darned this once. We gotta do this. After 50, it ain't gonna be easier, and... Well... There's thing sHubby really wants to see again, and with his Waldenstrom's... Just in case... and so forth.
OK, so yes, I'm planning things like a year or more in advance, LOL!
Interesting note: HOW you decide a sound is depends on your native "ear". For example, if you ask a Brit, an Aussie, and a Canadian to all say, "Describe the sound of umlauted A in German," you'll get different analogies to words they use on an everyday basis. (Don't ask Americans, it turns out.)
I encountered this with Hubby when I was trying to explain how to say a consonant that is common in Polish but he just couldn't grasp it, and that was when I realized. I'm so used t hearing it that I can't find a way to describe it to "outsiders". Whoops. Turns out my English is accented too much... So I had to resort to online sources.
Thus beware your nationality and your dialect within nationality when explaining another language. And, btw, this explains why I SUCK at French. Hah. THat's my story, and I'm sticking to it! I can manage "hi, bye, please, thanks, help" and that's about it. Oh, and a couple cusses, but those are actually Quebecois French.
Off to tackle the day (gently) and see if more than 2 pieces of toast will result in GI mayhem. So far, a cup of hot cocoa is doing well (naturally!) so... Here's to health!
*clink the mugs all around* TO HEALTH!

Good morning, and yes, I'm in a Fibro Zone. Hot hot hot humid humid humid. May as well just crank my Fibro to nine and leave it there. Oh wait... The weather did. *sigh*Well, I started out investigating good walking shoes and wound up on anacondas of the Amazon.I'll spare you that journey (you're welcome) and settle for this tale.***Dahlia squalls.Dixie fluffs up her tail and flees.I hobble at...
