    Holly, have you ever tried tinctures (A. Vogel) You put the drops in very little water and drink it down
    You can find them on Amazon or health shops
    Type in your problem on Amazon page and see what comes up. I'm sure they do a tincture for your problem
    They are really good too
    As for peaks, very rare Holly :rolleyes: :p

    Yesterday my Peak was not coming down with that nasty virus that is running through my Family right now.

    My Pit the arthritis pain and stiffness in my back and hip has not let up much since Sunday and it is really aggravating me and preventing me from doing what I want to do.

    oooh believe me Babs I know how you feel..apart from the pain, the frustration of not being able to get things that are so needed done..doesn't help with my mood.. and also currently it's too painful for me to drive so I'm stuck in the house getting Cabin fever and looking at everything that needs done that I can't do...viscous circle.. hope you feel a bit better soon


    ooops ... back to Topic...

    Well, actually two "peaks" and two "pits" for us:

    Peak.......Halloween costumes are completely ready for a party tonight, but see "pit" below.:D
    Peak.......TV repair came out yesterday to fix our HD 46" tv. Replaced to components on Main Board. TV fully came on.:D

    Pit.........Most likely won't go to the party tonight due to chilly temps:mad:. I would have to put on 1/2 of my costume in the parking lot where the party is. I can't fit into vehicle in full costume. I had to take two otc nasal congestion med last night. Will have to wait until next year.
    Pit........Turned on tv last night, but wouldn't fully come on. Finally came on. Called repairman to come out and take a look again. Paid $155 for the repair, but not repaired yet.:mad:

    Well, neither of us want to get sick, that’s for sure. This party would’ve been fun, but sometimes a plan just doesn’t work out. Unfortunately, money and time put into the costumes, but....

    TV man coming back out this afternoon to see what’s wrong with tv. Really need to have this fixed now, but getting a new 49” 4K one on Black Friday.

    Cody rather than pay out for an expensive TV repair as you'll be getting a new TV on Black friday, can you not just watch TV on your computers for now (especially if you have large screen monitors )... I know it's annoying to have to do that but it wouldn't be for too long and it would save some pretty pennies..

    Sorry to hear you won't be able to go to your party given that your costumes are all ready...

    Still early here, guess my peak is that Pickles let me sleep a little longer today. Got up around 4:15! I'm feeling lazy though so that could be my pit, I need to do a few things today so I better get moving.

    Have already paid him. Turned it off when he left. Called my wife a few minutes after repairman left and she heard me turn it on with no problems. Turned it on last night and it was clicking again, without coming on. We were both shocked and upset ( to say the least. After a number of clicks, it finally came on. Doing the same clicking, but not coming on this AM.

    We have a small tv in our bedroom, but it size is too hard for us to watch anymore. Since we’ve already paid for the big one’s repair, either want money refunded or it repaired. If money is refunded, will have to watch small one for awhile.
    We don’t watch tv on our computer.

    No. It’s a bad small/tiny IC (integrated circuit). When he showed it to me (still on the PCBA), I knew it was an IC. Years ago, I worked for two different electronics companies in their stockroom (full of electronic parts). The one company I worked for as a Stockroom Supervisor, made industrial and medical lasers.

    Anyway, he is going to replace this IC component, but he has to do it at his home. Will return the PCB to us and install this evening.

    There will be no charge. Wife and I just hope this new IC will solve our problem.

    My pit for today is I hate smelling like Ben Gay.:(

    My peak is that even though I have to keep smelling like Ben Gay...my Honey gives me a nice back rub while he is rubbing Ben Gay into the arthritis spots. :D

    Interesting thread this. Peaks nil and pits nil. Reason - I don't normally get any. Frustration with me, yes.

    Peak: TV tech came back with PCBA and installed into tv. TV came right on! No charge to us, but did offer him $10 for gas, but he absolutely wouldn’t take it. All we can hope for now is the tv comes on tomorrow morning. Watching it right now.

    Pit: Fighting a sinus cold, so our Halloween Party is definitely out. But, will put on costumes again for Halloween night and give candy out. Will get pictures of us then.

    It's only 5pm...but so far...


    The Peak : Beautiful sunny warm day after fog and heavy rain the last couple of days...and my o/h driving me ( because it's too painful for me to drive any distance at the moment ) to the street market in the next town and going for lunch at the pub, before he started work mid afternoon.... and also I bought myself a lovely new plaid shirt...


    The Pit : My husband has no sense of direction, we're complete opposites... have a superb sense of direction. He dropped me at the market and went to park the car in the underground supermarket car park... when we returned after the shopping and lunch to get my car..he couldn't remember which level he'd parked it..so we searched and searched, then eventually we walked through some doors leading to stairs to go down another level in case he'd parked it down there (he could only remember he'd parked it in a corner)... when we got to the basement level doors there was no way to get in ..no handles, nothing..it was no entry... so we walked back up to the second level only to discover that the doors we came through were one way only and we couldn't get back into the second level ...searching for a way out, we finally found some emergency fire doors on the basement floor..and we burst through them out onto the road ..the complete opposite side to the entrance to the supermarket , setting off the alarms in the supermarket.. we'd still be stuck there if the doors hadn't opened... it was funny, but oooh sometimes my O/H's lack of sense of direction drives me nuts.. :rolleyes::D:D

    I'm like your husband @Holly Saunders.

    I'll never forget one summer before I had Pickles, I flew out of the airport in Fresno and parked my car in long term parking. I was gone a few weeks and when I returned I couldn't remember where I parked my car.

    It was about 108 degrees and there I was walking the parking lot with my suitcase forever...I wanted to cry. Finally found my car because thankfully Fresno Yosemite international isn't that big. :)
