Re: My place in Hell has been reserved but will give you a l

I was once driving along in Italy and saw a car coming towards me on the wrong side of the road completely. I had to swerve madly to avoid it. It was being driven by a nun who seemed totally unaware of the danger she had put us both in. The only thing I could think was that it was okay for her, her...

Re: Slimming pills - madness

I totally get your point, Paul. Yes, I lost about a 1/3rd too, and believe me its not much fun trying to sit down when your coccyx is protruding with no natural padding :lol: I was fed by a stomach tube. I think that the 'middle ground' is probably best, if you are obese then the strain on your orga...

Re: Slimming pills - madness

I notice these ads always go into hyper drive in spring so we can have our beach bodies. This has been my topic all week - I was asking 'what is a Yoga Body?' - the answer being if you have a body and do yoga, then you have a yoga body :D I despair at the way the media decides what we should and sh...

Re: Slimming pills - madness

It is my understanding that if you stick to a lower fat diet you will not have those side effects, which really means you will lose weight by following a healthy diet and nothing to do with the pills :lol: These, I believe, are a weaker form of a prescription tablet which a relative of my OH tried m...

Re: Alan's blog........

You don't have to leave home to sleep in a tent :)
We did that just the other night, built a campfire (no marshmallows anymore sadly!) turned on an old transistor radio (seriously :) ), candle lanterns, dancing and then we (& our dog) slept under the stars :)

Re: My op

Hi Ives,
I have answered you on the introductions thread, we need a bit more information :)
Many of us have had major surgery on the pancreas (and some, like me, several :) ) what else do you know about your illness?
Looking to help,
Julie :)
