have you considered going to a holistic Dr to get rid of some of the pain naturally? my mom is constantly taking pain meds for her bi lateral carpel tunnel. I'm helping her alot of times, she feels worthless because she cannot work anymore. she doesn't know how much it means to me to be able to pick up that dough mixer for her. seems silly. but it helps me, makes me believe I'm making a difference in her life. nothnigs harder then watching those you care about suffer and feel like you cannot do anything about it.

if your family wants to support you and make your life a little easier. it might not be them helping you. but you helping them.

I practice some natural medicine, mostly herbalisim, but no formal education. but I do know, with most treatments can be just as effective as the commercial. with little to no side effects.

No I've never considered a holistic Dr and I can't take herbel meds been refused as they cause counter react to two of my meds I couldn't believe it but they showed me their book as apparently herbal meds can counter react...I've had a spiritualist, body massages, different things to help my mind and none of it as worked and they stopped my meds for depression as my body wanted more as I would get to a level drop back and needed more.

Sorry to hear about your moms carpel tunnel as both my sisters had that and also had them operated on...does she know her underlining cause which made it occur.

It's mentally driving me mad as i'm only with this forum and after a few days being active it happens again :low:
I know that feeling , a sense of being haunted by the unnatural . Go for a walk , get some fresh air , that works for me .

I'm having a crush on that man again. We are texting at this moment. He is so sweet and respectful to me. But we still have differences. Am I being immature and petty for that making me refuse to officially ask him out? I guess I'd be willing to date again. Not like a major commitment or anything. If it doesn't work out between us no hard feelings. We'd both get over it and move on. :shrug:

You've got it (being haunted by the unnatural) like somethings in you stopping you in your tracks.
My nearest walk would have to be the back garden :whistle: but i'm going to try and mentally push past it at night. 🤞

Plus I'm a sucker for a man who treats me with respect. Even better. He's a nerd and a strong fighter. We are similar in that way. Plus neither of us are religious. We have the same liberal political views. He sounds like he could be a good catch. He has a good stable job too. He is also attractive. :redface:

she was forced to wear a new kind of cut glove at work on both hands that were extremely tight. workers comp denied her saying shes the right age for menopause so it must be because of menopause without an investigation or anything.

I know some meds interact. I was talking about the side effects. synthetics are made from plant derivatives. that's how we get our pharmaceuticals in the first place. a holisic dr treats the unerlining cause of an illness. not just the symptoms like a jp. and they use a number of natural medicine options to do it. whether it be herbilism, naturopathy, or even hydro therapy. could be a combination of treatments too, from all sections of natural medicine.

My father believes that when I turn 35 (I’m 22) I will still be in the same place in my life. I’d love to prove him wrong by getting myself right, going back to studying, finishing my education, getting a job and living a normal life. Perhaps it could help him gain valuable perspective on my condition.
You can certainly achieve all of your goals in that time frame! (y)

Stupid pseudo-parkinsons anti-side effect meds aren't working very well today, finding it diffcult to type, so no Xbox for me for a while yet.
