Hey, I've recently started a bit of a "love affair" with BBC online radio. I listened to this podcast tonight. It's 17 minutes long. The topic: solitude. One person interviewed on this radio show is a a woman who chooses solitude. She is content with it. She tells, at the end of the...

I had a parathryoidectomy in August. The sick parathyroid gland, some other healthy parathyroid tissue, and some thymus tissue will sit in the hospital's path lab for up to 3 years. I contacted Simmaron Research via email to ask if any researchers would be interested in tissue biopsies for...

Hi, I have an appt with Endocrinology 18 April. I have hyperparathyroidism. From what I'm reading so far, surgery seems like the best option. But, I don't think I'm a good candidate for surgery because of the ME/CFS. However, I just wanted to share this new onset...in case someone has...

I got the flu shot yesterday. I got it after reading a few posts here on PR, and made my decision. I made my decision because I have a super super LOW WBC count, and if I possibly get the flu, I might not be able to fight it like someone with a normal immune system. I consider myself in a high...

I just saw this on MSNBC and thought it would be worth sharing. The ME problem is exacerbated - for me - by EMFs...very much like the people in this clip. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/43215154#43215154 also of (sad and disturbing) interest...

This is a wonderful web site for cultural things. I like it because I like hearing French or German... which is a nice neuro-linguistic change. It's great because one can see a lot of interesting things that are usually later at night. I most recently saw: Du Cirque de Demain; which was...

Yesterday i heard this radio show from the BBC about Internet addiction. I was worrying that I, too, may have a tendency toward internet addiction. I have family members - in good health - who wake up and go online....and I think could be online for 8, 12 hours a day. I believe one is a true...

So, to continue my time-line: after the work (2001) in the trauma unit (I lasted 6 months) I quit and took time off from working. I had money saved. I moved to Providence, RI. (2002) In RI I tried going running, and that is when I had the heavy leg feeling. It was very strange for me. I...

This was from the prior post. I can't comment on whether or not vaccines in and of themselves are to blame. I'm not a researcher or scientist. Millions of people are vaccinated. The mistake I made was not waiting to space out the vaccines. I have ADD, and part of ADD is making impulsive...

I wrote this segment about some of my journey. I feel very fortunate that I became ill in my (late) 30's....whereas some of us have been ill for much longer. I felt moved to write this little bit today. I feel very hesitant in some ways to post this because it's an indulgence to me. Even so...

:Sign Thanks: I live in a senior/55+ high rise. There is a provision here that lets "kids" like me live here, so long as we are verifiably disabled with a mobility kind of issue. So, here I am. Last night the seniors and another 'youngster' met for a talent night. It was pretty amazing...

Ok, I get the part that if you have a (retro) virus it can be passed along through bodily fluids. I guess there are air-borne viruses which are pretty dramatic: Hanta virus, Ebola virus. I think you just need to take a light wiff and you're hit with these 2. I'm no scientist by any...

I have a hard time reading longer things. I have had great success with getting books on tape/cd. Also listening to radio shows online, when my eyes need a break from movies. I also listen to regular radio shows on the PBS station.... Here are some favorites: Audiobooks: The Cat...
