...well

...now that was interesting. So now on my deathbed I'll call for a cigarette, a strong sweet coffee with cream, and ecstasy. Cool

You'll have the best deathbed time ever cheers

I'm not sure if what I took was ecstasy. I took powdered mdma... never pills.

I once took a pill that was making everybody around me so happy. It was new years eve, I remember. And it made me so down...

Go for a run.

Then do it again tomorrow.

And the next day.

Etc.

The downside of running is that replacement knees are very expensive, and they don't even work very well.

They died before they reached 40.

My dad just turned 93, but he has several replacement joints.

Yes--that's probably why he's lived so long.

Bike's are probably better--less pounding.

...this is the truth...move more. I know you're right.
I should take the dog for a walk every day. I could do it from 6 till 7. I've never been a runner).
When I first gave up smoking I walked every day...for about a week.

...the brown dog is my sisters. She was here for a week a few months ago.
I'm falling to pieces.
A big filling just fell out of a back tooth and the dentist is 700 k away.
Dentist bill...the horror!

I didn't realize someone took the photograph... as though you were walking alone with two dogs and there was an illustration about it but no photographer... scratch

I have to go to the dentist... someday... I've been avoiding it lately.

Sorry to hear about the tooth, Moonie.

Great that you're still not smoking! How are you feeling about that?

Dentists.....I avoid them too. When I was a kid I had many fillings put in, all done without novacane. They later found that the dentist had been drilling and filling teeth when there actually were no cavities.

But last week i had to force myself to go because i had cracked a tooth, one with a very old filling. I put it off for about a week, only chewing on one side, but i was getting so damn hungry and my friends were urging me to go ( I love you ) so I finally picked out a dentist and threw caution to the wind.

He was able to save the tooth and explained to me everything as he was working on it. Thankfully I have insurance (a perk with my job) and so only had to pay a fraction of the cost out of pocket.

A toothache is horrible pain to endure, but fear always makes me wait until the last moment to avoid it.

...I am feeling relieved about not smoking Constance. That's the overwhelming feeling. Relief.
And thank you so much for asking.

...when I was little we used to get on a bus to visit the 'school dentists', who were actually student dentists. It was revealed years later that many of them drilled our good teeth for the practise. Sad
Last weekend I attended a literacy training course. They handed us platesful of minties. I ate more than my share. I think those chewey lollies did the damage. Sadly a lot of tooth came out with the old filling.
I won't be able to get across to the dentist until the school year ends in about 8 weeks. Luckily I'm not in any pain.
At the rate I'm gaining weight it probably wouldn't be tragic if I couldn't eat. Mind you I've followed Paladin's advice and I walked for an hour tonight, instead of racing home from work and aiming straight for the computer and aatu ( Embarassed )

there's a government scheme, Moony, that finishes at the end of this year - if you've got any kind of chronic illness - it could be pain, diabetes, anything (me - schizophrenia).....

your doctor does a care plan for you and you get teh dentist free!!!!! cheers

just try to swing it with your GP.....it saves a hell of a lot of money - but it finishes at the end of the year

...oh thanks Catherine. I didn't know about that. Hmmm.
I didn't know you suffer from schizophrenia. I'm sorry to hear it.

I've been to psychiatrists twice in my life. The first one was old and warm-hearted and grandfatherly and advised me to take that trip to London I was dreaming of (I did...although I don't think he realised I only had enough for a one-way ticket).

The second guy had cold fish-eyes and diagnosed manic-depression and prescribed lithium. I took it. When I sensed I was becoming as cold and clinical as the arsehole who prescribed it I stopped taking it and have sort of weathered the storm since.

...none of my friends, or any members of my family, know any of this Shocked

Warning: this thread might contain nuts geek


I don't know what lithium is but for some time they prescribed me haloperidol and I know what you mean by cold. Fortunately the doctor realized it wasn't doing me good.

well, he sugar-coated it initially and called it schizo-affective disorder - (I get moody) but at the end of the day it's paranoid schizophrenia cyclops

maybe you could think of something else chronic to get your hands on the free dentistry - perhaps chronic hypochondria - I've got that

or Baron Munchausen's disease...haha
