    Nope, sorry, you are on your own!! Oh, wait, I do know one thing - people with kidney disease should not take magnesium supplements!

    Congrats again,

    Hey Jody

    Here's some weird urinary info. In women the uterus can be pushed up and down by the bladder as it fills leading to a painful pelvic area and during menses the filling of the uterus with blood expands into the bladder causing urinary frequency and sometime incontinence.

    Kidneys can not only produce stones but dehydration can lead to a calcification of the lining of the entire kidney which, must then be subject to sonic vibrations to bust up the calcium and send it on it's way in the form of kidney stones.

    Fun facts from the fringe! And congratulations you're a great writer and deserve both the raise and the additional column inches.

    Congratulations Jody,

    You certainly deserve it.

    Looking forward to catching up with ALL your writing after 12th Feb.

    (still haven't worked out where you should hang your "crystal", but where ever you've put it must be the right place for positive vibes).

    Look forward to reading your articles about kidneys too.

    Yeah, Vicki,

    You have a big job change coming very soon don't you.:D

    You deserve a rest. A good, long, saturating, gratifying rest.

    The crystal is just hanging on a chain in my bedroom right now. If it's helping ... well, I will leave it right where it is, just in case it is making a difference. :Retro tongue:

    Thank you, Magnesium Maxine.:D

    Jody, I'm adding my congratulations. Your story is encouraging. I used to write, and my brain fog has gone down enough now that I might risk it again. And as for you, you deserve all the success you get. Hope some higher-paying source hears about you, too.
