Re: Physical Therapy

Hello all, I just read the exercises Bobbi put on this site and several wanted to know how to print them for use. I just copied and pasted all of the exercises and pictures into my WORD program and printed. They came out great! You might try that; hope it works for you. I plan to start the exercises...

Re: How is everyone?

Dear Gloria, How dear of you to respond to my post, and thank you for your kind words. Gloria, you were the FIRST person I met with OT; I'm sure you remember our meeting here in FL many years ago. You were, and continue to be, such an inspiration to me and everyone who has found your website. It was...

Re: How is everyone?

Hello all ! It has been quite a while since I have posted anything on the forum. I have missed "talking" to everyone and reading the experiences of others. Last year was a difficult year; my husband had some major health issues and the year seemed to be gone and I had not been on the forum. He is be...

Re: B12 poll

I checked the options regarding B12 and found none which apply to me. My Internist (before I knew I had OT), was trying multiple things to help; he tried B12 on a regular basis. When blood work was done some months later, it was found my B12 was much too high, so he stopped the procedure. I hope thi...

Re: Reports and News from the Australia OT Meeting 2013

Hello Sue, I have spent the past few hours watching all the sessions from your meeting In Australia; Sue, you are to be congratulated on such a successful meeting.

Re: Reports and News from the Australia OT Meeting 2013

Hello Sue, It does sound as though your meeting was a tremendous success; job well done! I am eager to read all about the meetings and what was learned from the physicians attending; I only wish I could have been there, but living in the U.S., in Florida, it would have been a very long trip. Picture...

Re: How is everyone?

Hello Lorna, I have had experiences as you mentioned when standing (or sitting for you), in a line and waiting to pay for items. It is very difficult for me as I do not have a three legged stool. I have used my cane, but it is not helpful; it is to make others aware I have a problem. But....before I...

Re: Update on Sydney OT Meeting

Hello Sue, Your post is excellent, and to know you will have Dr. Julian Rodrigues (now YOUR neurologist) in attendance and will be speaking to the group should be quite interesting for all. I do hope you get a positive response from Dr. Sabine Meunier, and she will also be in attendance. To have bot...

Hello all, I wanted to jump in here and add my two cents, for what it's worth! :wink: First Lorna: I have tried Lyrica, but didn't have the side effects you described; mine were swelling of my eyes and face and I felt drugged and dull....but, I am one of those people who is very sensitive to almost ...

Re: Anyone with OT with young children?

Hello Ems..... I just read your post and wanted to at least let you know it has been read. From what you wrote, you have heard from golfnut; she has her own thread on this site with a lot of good information. You mentioned you don't want to take medication but would be open to homeopathy, acupunctur...

Hello Australia and New Zealand, This is a GREAT poster/advertisement for your upcoming meeting. It won't be long now and I am so eager to hear all about it. Did I read somewhere Dr. Russotto will be attending as well as other neutologists? If I were closer, I would try to attend; just too far away ...

Re: what say others?

Hi DiDi,

What a wonderful gesture to donate GO WITH THE FLOW a "one of a kind" sculptures with all monies going to NORD. Hopefully you will get everyone who is on this site to donate. That should raise quite a sum for our cause.

Thanks for your generous gift.

Dear Golfnut, It sounds as though your meeting with Dr. Bain was very successful and he was pleased with your improvement. I am so happy for you! I was also happy to read how your golf has improved; being able to stand and address the ball with little or no tremors...even putting ending with a 68 ne...

New Technology

Hello all.... This was sent to me by another OT friend and wondered if I had seen it. I had not. She doesn't check the forum often but thought it might be of interest to others. Watch the video below: This is probably the most remarkable scientific accomplishment of the century. Most operating rooms...
