Absolutely! For some of us, having nothing to vent about is very stressful to our well-being.

A good "mad" is always beneficial.

I'm back, I hope! My vent is that for the past month our internet service has been more down than up. I haven't been able to use this site at all. Any emails I've had to write, save, then look for the proper lights indicating the service is "up" and immediately sit down and send. Luckily, for us the internet is mostly a "toy", we aren't dependent upon it for work or really anything. But I've been constantly on the phone to my cable company and the frustration level has been very high.

Glad you are here when you can be. Sorry it is such a hassle. Good luck with getting things straightened out.

I've been weaning myself off the last of my pain medications, Tylenol. The only thing I am taking now for any arthritis pain is Glucosamine for my knees. So far, fairly good. My shoulders are aching all the time.

Since switching Doctors, I want to be off all pain meds so we can start from scratch on pain management. I need alternatives, since I cannot take ibuprofen or other NSAIDS because of medication interactions.

You are an inspiration, PF. I really wish I could get off my pain medications. With this last try of weaning off Naproxen and it triggering all my pain causes (FM, arthritis, lumbar, knee, sciatica, etc.) because of the swelling, I am a little gun shy of going off anything else even though I really want to.

I have made up my mind pain or no pain I am starting up at the pool again on Monday and want to get back to going on one walk a day with DH and the pups. I am hoping this and eating healthy again will help and I can try again in the near future.

Thanks, Laurie! I'm just tired of all the pills and pain. AND worrying about what's going on with my heart. With the cooler weather, I'm able to get outside more for some good walks.
