    Pauline, I feel like what I'm reading was written by me for the most part. I also have bowel problems for most of my life and understand the bathroom runs. I also know how frustrating it is to go to a doctor or ER on the worst days and have tests done that provide no answers. Right now I have something going on with the gut but all I get is 'head scratching' from the doctors. Oh, yeah, the dental problems are driving me nuts but no one seems to want to do anything about it. What's your experience been in that area?

      I had bridges on top after or while having radiation in 2012.Well in Dec of 2016 the fron 5-6 teeth came out and had to have surgery in Mass.Gen by residents that claim they're surgeons. on Feb 3,2017.Then the dentist had me go back in the beginning of April for 2 bottom teeth and one top bridge .I'm skipping a lot of words here,but been in pain since that surgery. Been living on Tylenols since.I'm alergic to 21 medications and one anesthesia medication.Have an app with the dentist on May 3rd.God only knows what's next.I think they're using me as a guiney pig for money since 1998.Also I'm not a candidate for gen anesthesia nor inplants because of my age and medical conditions according to the (make believe surgeons/residents that didn't graduate yet) at Mass Gen.Hosp.Plus I'm more sick for about a month now and don't know why.The doctors don't have any solutions>just tests that come out normal.And this is just a couple of things going on.My cardiologist app.is coming up in June for the bleeding in my heart from the open heart surgery in 2014.My primary doctor also.My GI doctor is on May 5th.

      Do they know what causes this. Inherited? Is it progressive? XXX, as if cancer and the treatment side effects are not enough to deal with. Is there medication that helps?

      Never was told.Have many problems in getting inf. from the med field more so now then ever.They look at symtoms and treat that with pills instead of looking at the causes and what it is. And when they don't know somethng they say you're fine and send you home and you die that same night.I'm so tired of chasing doctors to get inf. or to do anything about anything.I called yeterday morning to see if the urologist got in touch with the primary doctor about my kat scan from last week.The nurse told me she was going to give her the message again and she'll call me.STILL WAIITING!

      Can certainly understand the frustration. We have had blunders and lack of follow through at times with my husband's and my medical care. Have not seen our primary care physician for a year now. Always see his physican's assistant.

    Happy Easter Pauline!!! I hope that you're doing well. Have you been able to be around your family? Sometimes that's over-rated. My son is in bed with the flu. My grandson got a concussion- and he's sort of weird.

    He's the one that ruined an Easter Egg Hunt for little kids, and had a reward posted on his head. He was 10. He and a neighbor kid sneaked out of the house at dawn, and walked around, down to the river to throw rocks at wild ducks, cranes, and geese. They walked home by the park.

    They saw all sorts of bright things-PINk, YELLOW, etc. So they went and found hundreds of Easter Eggs and wrapped candies. Now the police arrested a sicko for poisoning Halloween candy. They told kids to be alert. Levi and friend hadn't seen anything about an Easter Egg Hunt. There weren't any signs or banners up-nothing. They called their friends, and they didn't know about any egg hunt.

    So they were alert and they picked up every egg and candy, so no dogs, raccoons, or kids would be poisoned. They took the eggs over behind a mall, where they smashed the eggs and put them in the dumpsters.

    That night, we were watching the news- and we saw these crying small children that just got off of busses and vans for their Easter Egg Hunt- and all of the eggs were gone. VANDALS took the eggs-smashed them. Put them in a dumpster. The Sheriff and Police Chief were promising to catch the vandals and throw the key away. This was viewed in 2 states.

    Levi told me about this on Monday. he's 30 now, but he halfway expected me to be mad.

    The following year, they put out the eggs, and left somebody with coffee and doughnuts to protect the eggs. Levi and friends spent months being scared of being arrested. That was 20 years ago.

    Anyway, there are some cute pics on the pin board-- so Happy Easter--

      Last night I was looking at Christians in Syria with their religious Easter processions for Good Friday. I was taught that this public demonstration wasn't in keeping with the New Testiment. Go share your life, sow the seed, but pray in private-don't brag.

      I was so touched by these pictures of the processions. These Christians face death, torture, and slavery because they will not denounce Christ, they will not leave their homes.
