Re: Simple changes support thread

This is a wonderful thread and I need some time to think of what steps I want to take. You're so right... I've been overwhelmed and rather stagnant because I think I have to make huge, dramatic change and I'm discouraged because I'm not ready to read Bredesden's approach... or really that much of an...

Re: High blood pressure/AD considerations

I used to drink it but I didn't monitor my blood pressure then. Interesting! I wouldn't mind drinking it again. Is there a brand you like? I used to drink Tazo's Passion tea, which was nice and strong - very flavorful.

Re: Doctors/Venting

Two weeks before Easter, I finally got in with a doctor who may be a real blessing to me under the circumstances. He exceeded my expectations. I was just hoping for someone who would be willing to re-evaluate me/re-test me. He said he didn't feel a retest of the methacholine challenge was necessary ...

Promethease

Is there a resource somewhere that will help me make better use of Promethease? I understand red or green. I am grasping that diseases can involve multiple genes. There are some gene locations that just have the numbers but no commentary or red or green. Are there parts of my DNA that 23 and me does...

Numbers, names and doctors

I've always had difficulties with numbers... and for a long time I've had difficulty remembering people's names. Lately, I've realized that I can't remember my age! I've been saying I'm 39 years old... when in fact, I'm 38. I've had to check the computer database at work to confirm my age! At the do...

Re: Doctors/Venting

Foxfors5, I do believe what I experience is laryngospasms. I have trouble breathing and experience stridor (a strained breathing sound similar to a wheeze that comes from my throat). The pulmonologist saw when she was scoping me that I was having closure of my vocal cords both when breathing in and ...

Re: Doctors/Venting

circular, I'm glad you got the help you need. I've had similar experiences of tremendous relief at finding a doctor who is helpful. I now have multiple health conditions, multiple medications and (allergist-diagnosed) food allergies/environmental/material allergies. I'm 38 years old, and I've run in...

Re: Great Courses/Headspace (and stress)

circular, Thank you for sharing the link. I hadn't thought to. It's interesting that they don't include everything there but I imagine it will be very worthwhile. I also remembered seeing something at Amazon, if you're an Amazon Prime member. They have something called the "Signature Collection...

Re: Great Courses/Headspace (and stress)

What a relief! I'm a huge fan of audiobooks, mostly non-fiction. Lots of topics that get me thinking, learning and taking notes. The Great Courses is one of the audiobook collections that I am amazed by. The information is very in-depth. I'm glad I might be moving in the right direction... and enjoy...
