Parkinson's Disease

Last Reply by violann 1395586554.547 | Started by Sherlene in Health & Fitness

Does anyone have experience with this? My mother, who has Parkinson's Disease, has gone, in one week from a functioning assisted living resident to someone who has lost all her strength and is in a rehab center receiving a big increase in her leva dopa medicine. For about six months she was having "panic attacks" every day at 3 pm but come to find out it was felt her Parkinson's medicine stopped working at that time and she "went of the cliff." These attacks are getting worse and more frequent; muscle spasms, extreme pain, rigidness, fear, sobbing, whimpering, panting, vise-like grip in her ... Continue Reading

 

Radius Toothbrush

Does anyone use this toothbrush? I just got mine. It takes some getting used to because the brush head is so large but so far am loving it. If you use them, did it help your gums health? Continue Reading

 

Re: Hose or No Hose?

In Linea 1382382030.627

I would go with the knee highs. They would protect your heels and toes from the shoes, and protect your shoes if your feet got hot and started to perspire. I just don't get the no hose trend. I guess I'm old school - unless it was 100 degrees and you were wearing a sun dress you weren't finished without nylons - or you were too poor or too backwoods if you didn't. We always had to wear slips so our dresses hung smoothly and didn't wad up when we walked and god forbid if the light shone through your dress! Thank goodness I was too young for the girdle thing though and that pants are allowed... Continue Reading

Could you please share your recipe for oyster stew? My Mom made this at Christmas and New Years and we loved it! I think she gently fried the oysters with a bit of their liquid in melted butter with Worchester sauce until the oysters were heated through and the gills got fluttery. Then she added them to heated milk (and a few shakes of celery salt too?). Then we added salt, pepper and lots of crackers to our bowls. Yum. Is your ... Continue Reading

 

Re: "Smoky Eyes"- over 50 is just scary. Rant.

In Beauty Banter 1380994144.943

I think that commercial is hysterical too. As someone who has worn makeup since 14, a smokey/heavy eye makeup always looked good on me since I wear glasses. Where I work now no one wears makeup, does their hair or dresses up. It's strictly jeans and sweatshirts. I figured I should conform to my work group so I quit with the makeup (I'm at that age where I am invisible to men anyway). It is so liberating! I think I look younger and my skin is better. I admit I look different without it, but I can't imaging going back to the makeup routine every morning! Wasn't there a makeup trend/fad in... Continue Reading

 

Re: How to get rid of redness on the body

In Beauty Banter 1377392707

I found that sometimes the more moisturizing lotions are better than the alpha hydroxy(sp?) ones. Have you tried cortisone to calm your skin down. KP gets better the older you get. I had it real bad on my upper arms when I was young. Now that I am middle aged, my arms are completely smooth. Its one of the few good things about getting older LOL! Continue Reading

 

Type 2 Diabetes and Weight Watchers

Last Reply by ID2 1375315883.49 | Started by Sherlene in Health & Fitness

Hello: I need to lose a lot of weight and also have Type 2 Diabetes. I'm not having much luck losing on my own, so thought I would look into Weight Watchers. I will be going to a free meeting on Friday. Does anyone know if Weight Watchers diet would work for a diabetic? Would anyone have a suggestion for a good diet plan for someone with Type 2 that needs to lose about 50 pounds? I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks! Continue Reading

 

Re: Aster Yellow disease on cone flowers

Thanks ladies. My flowers look just like the picture posted. I feel bad, they were so pretty. Removing them will be added to my to-do list for the weekend. Have a happy 4th. Continue Reading

 

Aster Yellow disease on cone flowers

Last Reply by Sherlene 1372906183.883 | Started by Sherlene in In the Garden

Help! I think all my purple cone flowers have aster yellow. The flower heads aren't developing - they are green fluffy things and the ones that did develop have small twisted petals. Do I need to dig up and destroy them all? Is there really no cure and is the soil contaminated? Thanks Continue Reading
