I know I shouldn't but I can't help myself. Sounds like something I would do.

This may be addressed elsewhere, but just want to express my disappointment in the revelations about Lance Armstrong's bicycling downfall. What a waste of his talents and energy all this time. So sad that he felt he had to resort to cheating and apparently took lots of others along with him. Phooey. I was joking about it yesterday, but on reflection don't think there's much funny about it.

My legs have been hurting all day but I didn't think much of it. A few minutes ago I went to put my PJ's on and noticed they are swollen, almost twice the normal size.
My calves mostly. Wonder what brought this on !?
My legs have been swollen before but never this bad.

What the news doesn't tell you is that his "team" is also banned from competitive cycling. They have lost their souce of income. His sponsors spent a lot of money on him. They too now have a black eye. And donations for his Foundation has dropped considerably. He had to step down because of the black name his presence was giving it. The ripple effect just keeps growing.

The use of PEDs in professional sports used to anger and surprise me. Now it just saddens me. My assumption is, I would not be surprised by any athlete's being caught using them - bar none.

My shoulder hurts, and because it hurts I've been moving my arm differently and lifting things oddly. Now my elbow hurts too. CRAP!!!

I changed the sheets on my bed this morning and couldn't find the matching pillowcases! I usually fold them and put them between the folded bottom sheet and folded top sheet so I have the set all together but I don't know where they went. So I had to go into my spare pillow cases and find ones that won't look too awful with my new quilt.

You need to put your feet up and rest if this keeps up call you doctor, you might need som lasix to remove fluids I have this at times but dialysis helps get rid of it. Don't just put up with it get some help.

Have you been eating more salt than usual. Sounds like water retention.

Putting feet up sounds like good advice. Black tea (like English Breakfast Tea) is a natural diuretic. There are a bunch of foods that are. I'm sure you would find some you have or at least like, if you Googled. Yes, Lasix would work, but if you can avoid medications, then that's better.

there was a time that i could log into dc and i would be good for days--weeks, even. these days (probably due to my sorry, crappy-a___ computer) i have to log in at LEAST 15 times in a single day, that is, if i happen to care enough to even bother. then on top of that, my attempted log-ins often do not 'take' in which case, i end up in a 15 minute enforced "time out" before i can return to dc and try my logins again....so, if you don't hear from me on any given day, it well might be due to my being locked out. :(
