hi danni! i don't go back to Howell till December but Lori and some of the others who have been in lately said that the Meritcare group is now saying we should use something OTHER than optisource - lol. You were ahead of your time! I still have a bunch to use so haven't been through finding anew one yet but they are recommending something like a Centrum that has more of the minerals. Walmart has a B12 sublingual made by Rexall that isn't bad. the never ending vitamin deal. I've heard Solgar is a good brand, and I know some people order from vitalady.com. happy hunting, lol! hope things are continuing to go well!!
Hi Judi...I've missed you : ) ....and to think with the vitamins I just thought they tasted nasty...lol I did order some from Bariatric Eating and was not impressed, they were bigger than the optisource and chalkier...the vitamin b12 chewables passion fruit weren't bad though. I think I would do better with swallowable ones but I haven't found any that are small enough to swallow yet. You'll have to keep me updated on what everyone is reccomending. Are you going to any support groups? I can't wait for us to move closer to Fargo so I can start one. There is no one in my small town that has had the surgery and I just don't have a support team here so I am ready to move. Well, my students are here so I better go. Thanks for replying, it was good to talk to you again!!
hey! sorry i haven't made time to pm you, i've missed you too! i'm still researching the multi's i'll let you know if i discover anything great. i didn't know you might be moving closer to fargo, that will be so nice for you to be closer to your mom!! i have to go cut roses for rotary, ill pm you soon!
danni...I was just reading your posts here because I also have problems deciding what vitamins I need to take...but, I noticed you are interested in a support group, and I am wondering where you live in North Dakota. I have started a support group in Valley City, which is located about 60 miles west of Fargo...and certainly would like you to consider attending this one if you are within traveling distance. We meet the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM. It is a fairly new group, so we are just getting out feet off the ground and are welcoming any new members. The next meeting will be December 18. If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck to you.
