Topic: RE: Hydration Centers

There is an Infusion Center and a Wellness Office at my son's psych office. There are always people in there when we go.

I think some people just have so much money they don't know what to spend it on.

Topic: RE: ADD / ADHD

I don't think there is any drug you can't quit, it just has to be done over a period of time.

The side effects of going cold turkey are awful, and I definitely wouldn't recommend it! I read about brain zaps and how bad they were but until I had them, I had no idea.

Topic: RE: ADD / ADHD

A diagnosis is not really a diagnosis until it's been done by a psychiatrist. The drugs used to treat these are often a big incentive as they're basically legal amphetamines.

I have several friends who are suddenly diagnosed in adulthood.

If you really feel this is valid, you'll need a psychiatrist to give you the diagnosis and prescribe drugs long term. PCPs should, and usually are, very reluctant to prescribe psych drugs long term

Topic: RE: Do you take Iron Supplements while on Iron Infusions?

I've been on Proferrin and haven't had to have an infusion in 6+ years. I have crap high deductible insurance, so I'd rather spend the money on a good heme iron than thousands on infusions.

I have zero side effects from Proferrin

Topic: RE: Greek Yogurt vs Greek Style Yogurt

I do the Fairlife method because I have some lactose intolerance.

Carton of Fairlife Whole Milk

Carton of Fage 2%

It's popular to add a can of condensed milk, but I don't

Place in pot, stir, press yoghurt button - the default is 8 hours, I prefer 6, you'll need to tweak to see what you like

No need to strain, but I like it thick, so I do.

That's it, easy peasy lemon squeasy

I add vanilla and whatever flavoring I fancy

While I have diahhrea, I've never pooped my pants. It's not like it seeps out of you. It's just an "urgent" need to go.

I was about 2 years out before I ate raw oysters, just because I hadn't had the opportunity before. Those delicious creatures slipped right on down.

Topic: RE: Who do I listen to about WLS?

I wouldn't touch a VSG with a barge pole with ANY history of gerd. Most of the revisions we are seeing lately are VSG to RNY for that reason.

Gerd is not something to be messed with and prolonged use of PPIs come with their own possible bad outlook.

Topic: RE: Instant Pot Arrived! What do you use it for?

Tonight's dinner is Mongolian Beef and Broccoli, which has been marinating in the fridge since this morning.

Ribs

Yoghurt

Chicken & Cashews

Pulled Pork

The best advice I can give is go to one of the professional sites for recipes, lots of people publish recipes that are untested and you'll feel like you made the mistake. I like This Old Gal and Amy & Jacky but there's lots of them. The official Instantpot FB page is huge, 600k members, but if you use the search function it's really good.

Topic: RE: Thoughts on Shakes?

I've never had one and I've always been hale and hearty. Sounds like I should have been sick all those years ago but nope, never happened.

Protein shakes and bars are not a magic weight loss food as they're often portrayed.

Topic: RE: Dr. Phil show featured a women that lost 300 pounds with the VSG

If she doesn't get rid of the 200lbs she was on the show with, she'll end up dead. She was a perfect example of an abused spouse.

Her daughter was the only saving grace.

Making arrangements to give her a tummy tuck and face lift was a giant Dr Phil fail, but then let's be honest, she was only on there because she gave him the opportunity to plug his Dr on Demand business and his son's show The Doctors.

I hope she lives to enjoy her free plastics

Topic: RE: I am new to OH and a slow loser - help?

I missed where she called herself "Mama June". No mention of rednecks, pageants and Mama June doesn't have 6 kids either. Mama June also had VSG not RNY. You could have likened this June to Al Roker and you'd have been more accurate!

I think she explained herself perfectly and I don't see an ounce of troll in her post; just someone asking for help.

So who pissed in your carb laden Cheerios to be this mean? ? You have way more troll behaviour than June, just sayin'

Welcome June!

I would heartily recommend you drop into the What Are You Eating post every day. It will give you a great idea of what everyone else is eating, you'll get advice on your menu and you'll get to make lots of friends just like you!

This is a great place to hang out and I hope you stick around

Topic: RE: Uncontainable boobage

Victoria Secret is for 20 year olds with 34B chests. Their bras are not good for support for anyone with real boobage nor are they good quality.

Go to one of the good stores, Nieman Marcus or something like, and get one of their ladies to give you a proper fitting.

My and many others pet peeve is photos of people where their boobs are resting at waist height. Boobs where they should be make us all look better AND slimmer.
