I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Eyebrow raise. How's the meat and veg?

I meant for my dry hands.

Meat and veg? Hmm. I had two types of antibiotics - Pamsvax and ciprofloxicillin - that I took for a month. They did no good at all, until the cipro ran out and I was using just the Pamsvax on its own for ten days. That seemed to have an effect. Then I ran out and I'm back to square one. If I can find the time, I'll ask the doc for just the Pamsvax.

Some hair recipe suggestions (not for Nigel, since he doesn't have any)


I have an abundance of hair. Just not on my head.

If it's working then ask for a repeat prescription next time and then you can phone in when you need more Smile

Two lots of antibiotics  confused Well if one seems to be helping, that's good but don't forget to top up on those probiotcs.

As for your hands, I don't have one to hand for that but you can buy Weleda products in the UK and I have one of their hand creams on my desk ATM - smells and feels lovely on.

Spoke to my Grandmother in London on the phone last night for the first time since she was diagnosed with alzheimers (she is in a care home). Completely different person to the one I stayed with on my travels 2 and a half years ago.

She had no idea about anything to do with me. First said I sounded very grown up (I'm 25). The asked how school was going and then asked how my packing was going and that I must be excited about moving to a new country (we emigrated in 1993).

How sad, for everyone.  She will have no idea how upsetting it is for you and it's not how you want to remember loved ones.  A friend of ours was diagnosed with Alzheimers when she was only 49.  It's being diagnosed earlier in people but then again, more and more people are putting themselves at risk, with binge drinking being a trigger.

hug But although she wasn't keeping to one time, she still remembered you. I know that it's awful but for the person stuck in their memories, at least you know she is remembering you while stuck in there. Horrible to deal with, especially since you're at such a distance hug

My mum has Alzheimers and was extremely deaf so communication was bad at the best of times. She was fortunate to go into a council run home were the care was the best. As a a Psychiatric nurse I know just how painful it is to see a person going through the illness. I remember a person who had been a Universirty Lecturer she was a tall elegant clever woman. As the months went by that person became an empty shell.
It is terrible to see how quickly it happens. More research is needed, we have an ageing population and more and more money will be needed to find a cure for this illness. It is a cruel illness leaving the person like an empty shell of their former self.

Is that one of the side effects?  I'm amazed at the number of side effects you read about on medications atm.
I rarely look at side-effects.  If I did I'd never take the stuff!  Trouble is the drug companies are obliged to detail every single reported side-effect, even if it's only happened with one person.

Yes, I know how distressing that can be.  An aunt of mine who died last year at the age of 96 suffered Alzheimers, and, although all her nieces and nephews were the wrong side of 60, latterly she could only remember who we were if we showed her a photos of us as children!  Doctor said it's the very long-term memory which is the last to go.

It is very upsetting for family and friends but I was told by a consultant some years ago that the person is now in their own world where they see the rest of us as 'out of step' they know no stress and are quite happy.  I hope this helps in some way for you.

Lateral epicondylitis or lateral epicondylalgia, also known as tennis elbow, shooter's elbow, and archer's elbow, is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender. It is commonly associated with playing tennis and other racquet sports, though the injury can happen to almost anyone.[1]

Tennis elbow is an overuse injury occurring in the lateral side of the elbow region, but more specifically it occurs at the common extensor tendon that originates from the lateral epicondyle. While the common name "tennis elbow" suggests that people who play tennis may develop this condition, other activities of daily living may also cause it.[2]

Data was collected from 113 patients who had tennis elbow, and the main factor common to them all was overexertion. Sportspersons as well as those who used the same repetitive motion for many years, especially in their profession, suffered from tennis elbow. It was also common in individuals who performed motions they were unaccustomed to. The data also mentioned that the majority of patients suffered tennis elbow in their right arms.[3]

Other descriptions for tennis elbow are lateral epicondylosis, lateral epicondylalgia, or simply lateral elbow pain.

Lateral epicondylitis is a painful condition at the lateral epicondyle of the humerus. The acute pain that a person might feel occurs as one fully extends the arm. Since the pathogenesis of this condition is still unknown, an appropriate name is still in the works. Despite the term "tennis elbow," tennis players make up a small number of individuals who suffer from this ailment, which is often found in manual workers such as builders and waiters. Bowden states that it should be called lateral elbow syndrome.[4]

Runge is usually credited for the first description in 1873 of the condition.[5] The term tennis elbow was first used in 1883 by Major in his paper "Lawn-tennis elbow".[6][7]
