Re: o/t the SOB story

Home health services in the US include being driven around so you can make it to medical appointments, shopping, hair appointments, etc. I know about it because my wife recently became such a driver! She earns far less than I did as a trucker, but it gives her something positive to do for someone ot...

Re: New to ICD recommendations

I didn't have much of a choice to make regarding my CRT-D: Get it or be prepared to have another SCA (or SCD!) the next time my heart threw a bad rhythm. I wonder if your husband's fear is just one of having any sort of surgery. Or is it a fear of having an object implanted in his chest? (Given how ...

Re: Behavior Changes After Sudden Cardiac Arrest

My first personality change came with my younger brother's SCD in 1973 (he was 17). I had been the brainy introvert while he'd been the outgoing life of the party with at least 5 times as many friends. After his death I went through a series of risky behavior, including some drug experimentation and...

Re: ICD Removal

Getting a CDL and DOT medical card for interstate driving is out of the question if you've ever had an episode of syncope (loss of consciousness due to drop in blood pressure). OTOH, some states will allow you to drive intrastate (strictly within that state's boundaries) -- you just have to find a c...

... And all this is done without protection or padding.
Which is why the injuries in rugby are less disastrous than those in American football. Protection and padding gives the player a false sense of invincibility that leads him to attempt suicidal maneuvers.

Re: rugby league

The closest I've come to rugby or cricket was the passages in The Hitchhiker's Guide in which Arthur Dent and his friend Ford Prefect use a time travelling chesterfield sofa, that drops them off in various locations throughout the space – time continuum, including Lord's Cricket Ground.

Yep, I'm still here, and probably will be for a while longer. I'm still trying to figure out the changes in our software.

Re: O/T the luck of the Irish

Reading of your recent adventures, I'm reminded of Ole and Lena: On his deathbed, Ole confided in Lena: Well darling, you've always been with me, on life's long bumpy ride. Through sickness, hair loss, bankruptcy you've been here by my side. My heart attack and the house burning down that night the ...

Re: OT-Update on Freckles

I'm not exactly antisocial, but I don't bother to do a lot of online things that some people do, like endlessly sharing things on FB to "prove I care." But I do care about you, Bob, and I hope that as you prepare for that final curtain, that you've indeed "lived a life that's full... and traveled ea...

Re: Purchasing medications online?

Ignoring cost for a second, do any of you have experience ordering medications from foreign (i.e., Canadian) websites? Any good / bad stories to tell? No, but I'm aware that ordering anything online has its risks: The product may be bogus. The company may have unsafe (for you!) security on its site...

You're all missing the obvious point: Women are not experiencing mind-blowing, heart attack-causing sex as often as the men are. Shame on you guys... you gotta learn how to please your women!
