mrp - if i remember correctly you are on no meds at all now - do your docs not regard your ordeal as maybe having left you with post traumatic stress
12:47 am

I read somewhere the p t s can be a problem with weight loss
12:48 am

ursh, I have been diagnosed with PTTS and they put me on meds to help with it... but the meds were worse for me and now I am stuck looking for a solution

Post Treatment Traumatic Stress
12:49 am
cjmomma

I don't know what happened with you mrp, I just started babble when you went through this and didn't want to be rude and ask
12:49 am
hurshy

have you gotten any regular therapy? i've heard that there's a treatment involving rapid eye movement that is very helpful in dealing with the effects of trauma, and also cognitive behavioral is helpful...
12:50 am
mrpresident

cj, don't worry to ask about it, have been doing this since 2000, non friggin stop
12:50 am
ursh

here they seem to like to use eglanol which they can give to breastfeeding moms for anxiety and it seems to be the drug of choice
12:51 am
mrpresident

I do get regular therapy, it is required after my surgery(s)... but the therapist I have is not very useful. I am dropping her and finding another because I prefer/respond to congitive therapy
12:52 am

sorry mrp - i am sure you get sick and tired of talking about it - just interested as have daughter who has ptt after two attacks on her - one through the window of her car and one more recently at gunpoint
12:52 am

I can't stand going to a shrink, have them sit there and repeat everything back to me! I know what I said!!! I need a solution to get through to another level!!

i hope you can find one who helps. the eye thing is called EMDR so if you find someone who is trained in that, it might be good. it usually goes with cognitive.

12:54 am

I'm sorry to hear that ursh
12:54 am

the symptoms are the same as post traumatic stress, but the medication and change of behaviour during the drug therapy is what is different. It alters you and is scary

who did he spy for and on whom did he spy?
12:59 am

there is some debate on the full extent bc some docs are still sealed. but the main thing was that he passed on stuff to israel that the US did not want to pass on
12:59 am

3:46 am
MonkeyGames

Doing OK. Sorry about your virus! The old bakfiets was just hauled off for 100 Euros (the same as the tuneup on the new one will cost) by a metalworker who wants to make something fun out of it. Couldn't be happier with that conclusion for it! Scrambling and panicky about school, going to go out as a family and buy a tree in a little while, doing OK.

It sure is.
4:00 am

found the 3rd and it is not with the same root.
4:00 am
MonkeyGames

This is a phantom-rich grid.
4:00 am
MonkeyGames

OK, thanks!
4:01 am
sprite

that was bad english, wasn't it? Doesn't have the same root, or doesn't come from the same root would have been better?
4:02 am
MonkeyGames

With is barely acceptable but would work better paired with "start": doesn't start with. But yes, from would work standalone there. Come from also fine.
4:03 am
sprite

thanks :)
4:04 am
sprite

am trying to work on my pronunciation too, lol.
4:04 am
MonkeyGames

Oh THERE is the second F from th eleft! Yay!
4:04 am

good job :)
4:05 am
MonkeyGames

You're pronunciation struck me as fine, but in order to evaluate it bettr we ahve to get together and do something fun.
4:06 am
MonkeyGames

You know what I hate? When I think I have found that elusive letter from somewhere and teh word turns out to come from a different source point.
4:06 am
Sally-catlover

Hi everyone. How's it going so far?
4:06 am
sprite

we most certainly will, MonkeyG, after you have your degree and things will be a little more relaxed! I remember you telling me my pronunciation was utterly Dutch, so I am trying to find out how to sound a little less clogwoggy, lol.
4:07 am
MonkeyGames

OK so far! Much better than the last couple.
4:07 am
Sally-catlover

That's a relief!
4:07 am

hi Sally! Am having a lot of fun with this one, but I am only halfway. How are you?
4:07 am
MonkeyGames

No, be proud of your heritage! Anyway, I should, all going well, get that degree on 23 January, four days before my 40th birthday. I think I should maybe plan a little something...
4:08 am
Sally-catlover

I'm fine. Just started, so only 26 so far. However, have large mug of coffee and have just finished a bacon sarnie so brain is now in gear.
4:08 am

oh I know, MonkeyG. That sucks. I hardly dare giving clues when people ask for a clue from a certain ti** either. I always seem to get it wrong.
4:08 am

Me too.

oh my, you are at least one better than me then, Sally. I didn't have breakfast yet. But coffee, yes!

my phantom for today is a sexual word, lol, and it isn't even close to being in the grid because there is just one L.
4:15 am
MonkeyGames

And hi BabRab!
4:15 am
sprite

hey BabbleRabble, so good to see you. How are you today?
4:15 am
sprite

thanks for the 8
4:15 am
BabbleRabble

hello, folks
doing olay, sprite
4:16 am
MonkeyGames

The 9 is a fish, for the record.
4:16 am
MonkeyGames

Not a real one like sturgeons or something.
4:16 am
Sally-catlover

I've seen Babblers talking about a fish before. I have the 9, so what do you mean by a fish?
4:16 am
sprite

that is great to hear, BabbleRabble. Enjoying the good days :)
MonkeyG, literally or not?
4:17 am
MonkeyGames

Not literally a fish, nor even a word meaning an actual fish. Just a word we all know and can eventually find.
4:17 am
Sally-catlover

Thanks for the explanation.
4:17 am
sprite

a fish word is a word that is common, and when you ask a clue and find it, you feel a little stupid for having asked and then you need a fish slap to feel better again ;)
4:17 am
MonkeyGames

A fish is a word that should be easy enough to spot, Sally.
4:18 am
Sally-catlover

:-)
4:18 am
MonkeyGames

is also what we virtually whack ourselves and each other with for not seeing such words.
4:18 am
BabbleRabble

quite often here a fish is a red herring
4:19 am
MonkeyGames

It certainly can be! Well said.
4:19 am
sprite

and for the old time babblers it is a special word, because there used to be a time when every grid had a (real) fish. It was a kind of inside joke to ask if the fish of the day had be found already.
4:19 am
sprite

lol BabbleRabble
4:19 am
Sally-catlover

It seems to me every grid has a part of the body.
4:20 am
sprite

haven't really payed attention to that yet, Sally, but I will from now on!
4:20 am
MonkeyGames

Phantom: oligarch
4:20 am
sprite

in dutch, a transformator is in short called a trafo. Not valid though.
4:21 am
Sally-catlover

My phantom today is garden
4:21 am
sprite

arrgghh thanks for bringing that one to my attention as well :P
4:21 am
MonkeyGames

Oh well. OK, time to perambulate the canid through the chill bleakity! Back later! Have fun everyone!
4:22 am
sprite

4:23 am
sprite

that is, part of the sun beams. Let's keep the sun in one piece for now.
4:27 am

Morning, sprite, Monkey and sally. It's a very wet one in West London.
4:31 am
sprite

morning hydra!
4:31 am
hydra

How are you, sprite?
4:31 am
Sally-catlover

Hi Hydra. Very wet here too. Our stream is rushing like a torrent.
4:31 am
sprite

not too bad, hydra. Caught another virus, but otherwise am feeling ok. How about you?
4:32 am
hydra

I see you live in Shropshire. Lovely area. I have friends in Shawbury.
4:32 am
hydra

I'm fine thanks, apart from a washing powder allergy which is affecting an unfortunate part of my anatomy!
4:33 am
hydra

I usually use a hypoallergenic powder but my trousers went in my partner's wash by accident.
4:33 am
sprite

eeks hydra, that is very unpleasant. I hope it will subside very rapidly.
4:33 am
Sally-catlover

LOL
4:35 am
sprite

must love and leave you all, family matters to attend to. Have a fun day and/or a good night.
4:35 am
hydra

The words aren't exactly leaping from the grid into my brain today. Is it just me, or is it a tricky one?
4:35 am
hydra

Nice to see you, sprite. Have a good day.

4:37 am
Jacula

Hi Hydra. I see you've got itchy knickers again!
4:38 am
Jacula

The wind kept me awake last night. NOT internal wind, I hasten to add - the wind outside.
4:39 am
hydra

I thought I'd slept well, but I feel really tired today.
4:39 am
Jacula

It's a day for staying in anyway, Hydra. Non-stop rain.
4:40 am
hydra

Tried to start a new scramble game with you, Jac, but it wouldn't let me, for some reason. Can you start a scramble or a twist please?
4:40 am
Jacula

Beloved was 'supposed' to be out early finishing his Xmas shopping today, but he's in his dressing gown and wrapped in a faux fur throw on the sofa still.
4:40 am
Jacula

Hydra - I'm sure I've started one of the two with you and also a Text Twirl.
4:41 am
hydra

I was due to go into central London to the optician, but I cancelled and I'm so glad I did. Have you seen those things called Slankets? Buy him one for Xmas!
4:41 am
Sally-catlover

What's a Slanket?
4:41 am
Jacula

Slankets? I'll look them up.
4:41 am
hydra

Last time I was on, it said I had no current games. Weird. I shall have another look.
4:42 am
Jacula

LOL - a giant dressing gown!
4:42 am
hydra

Crossed with a sleeping bag!
4:42 am
Sally-catlover

NM, just googled Slanket. Must buy one for OH!
4:42 am
Jacula

Sally -Google it.
4:43 am
hydra

I want one for typing in as Mr Grumpy won't let me have the heating on.
4:43 am
Sally-catlover

Looks like a giant version of something I used to put my son in.
4:43 am
Jacula

It'd be ideal for that, Hydra.
4:44 am
hydra

Wonder if they make them big enough for two? You could have lots of fun!
4:44 am
Jacula

*Grins at Hydra.*
4:44 am
hydra

As long as you didn't fall off the bed and roll down the stairs!!!
4:45 am
Jacula

LOL!
4:46 am
hydra

I've found a measly 43 words. Must go and make a coffee now to warm myself up. See you in a bit.
4:47 am
Jacula

4:48 am
Jacula

Sally - I think I had something like that for my son, too. It did up at the bottom with buttons and a flap.
4:48 am
rolin

morning all...
4:48 am
Sally-catlover

That's right Jacula. We used to lift him in it when going out, leave him with parents.
4:49 am
Jacula

Morning Rolin.
4:49 am
Sally-catlover

Don't think he would appreciate one now since he is nearly 39!
4:50 am
Jacula

I used to envy my son on wet and windy days when he was snug in his pushchair and a big, fleecy bag thing and under a rain cover.
4:50 am
Atalante

I'm not reaqlly here cos I'm going back to bed after getting no sleep from the oast house sounding like it was about to fall down around my ears all night long. But I just wanted to add my adoration of those Slankets. WANT!
4:50 am
rolin

isnt it a wonderful day to hunker down with the pc?
4:50 am
Jacula

LOL, Sally. Mine's nearly 25, so I think he'd feel like yours.
4:51 am
Sally-catlover

However, mine has new baby so I can buy, buy, buy!
4:51 am
Jacula

Hi Ata. Yes, it was rather a wild night. (Not in the exciting sense!)
4:51 am
Atalante

wasn't it just!!
4:51 am
rolin

thats what im doing...and with my loads and loads of prerecorded stuff
4:51 am
Jacula

Rolin - It is.
4:52 am
Jacula

One of our garden benches blew over in the night but the lawn's a lake, so no chance of squishing across to pick it back up.
4:52 am
Atalante

Another big branch came off our willow, but somehow no tiles came off the roof. I'm absolutely amazed
4:53 am
Jacula

I haven't been outside to check for any damage yet. The cat was out all night but he's back okay.
4:53 am
rolin

wow..we've had rain and wind..but nothing like that
4:54 am
Sally-catlover

It was pretty bad here. Hens growing webbed feet again.
4:54 am
Atalante

Hobbit walked outside, got nearly blown over, did her business and ran back in
4:54 am
Sally-catlover

LOL. Don't blame Hobbit. Great name for a dog by the way.
4:55 am
rolin

the only walking is to hobble round the lounge...i just dont to need the loo for a while..
4:55 am
Atalante

spaniels are so funny in wind. their ears blow backwards
4:55 am
Jacula

Poodles are the same, Ata.
4:55 am
Atalante

4:57 am
Jacula

If your innards are ent5/10s, why isn't en+t5/10 a word?
4:58 am
rolin

i tried that too jac..and was told it only exists in pl..
4:58 am
Sally-catlover

I know, it's one of the words I always try and always fail
4:58 am
Atalante

ditto
4:59 am
Sally-catlover

The other one that irritates is that an orfe is a fish, but not allowed, but lots of other weird foreign fauna are allowed.
5:00 am
Jacula

Also, squirrel's drey not allowed.
5:00 am
rolin

my irritation is how slang from some countries are allowed but not from other countries
5:00 am
Sally-catlover

Ditto.
5:01 am
rolin

has anyone been watching the bbc4 program on italian art?
5:01 am

Fluffy. Two friends will join me for XC-skiing tomorrow. I may out by myself today, if I see several cars at the tr***head. I will not risk being alone in the woods.
6:30 am

We looked and looked for a tree but only found huge ones and expensive ones, and gave up when Walterw as nearly blue and I couldn't feel my hands.

we have 5 former xmas trees out in our yard- one of them has been topped off two times to let us have a new tree. They have grown as tall as our house and taken over the yard

I always try to talk hubby into getting a fake tree ('cause I think the live ones are best left alive). But, no, we have to go out and slay one every year.

My grandparents' tree was, by the time I was old enough to appreciate it, about 40 feet tall...

Judi

If memory serves, isn't a springbok a small deer-like creature?
1:29 pm
MonkeyGames

Springbok is farmed in Germany. Gets cheaper every year; about equivalent to decent beef now, price-wise. Fresh. It's like less gamey venison. Really tasty.

the funny thing is, to see who sort of knows the deal, by the way THEY address the cards - haven't got several just addressed to me and the kids, so they are clearly in the know....
1:35 pm
MonkeyGames

Hee, hee! And he did try that whale.... For the record we are totally against any form of whaling but it was already done, brought over, and served by a friend at his house for dinner.
1:35 pm
Trifioso

sorry, that was supposed to be HAVE got several addressed....poor grammar either way, really
1:36 pm
Atalante

poor native inuit people, starving without their whales to eat
1:36 pm
Trifioso

MG, when I lived in Washington DC, it was quite en vogue to go to the World Bank cafeteria for lunch - the selection of items they had on offer each day was always unique
1:36 pm
Judi

Huh. Isn't whale rather blubbery?
1:36 pm
MonkeyGames

He's Icelandic.
1:36 pm
MonkeyGames

No, the blubber and meat are well separated. It tasted like a fabulous steak that had been left in a bag for two long in a bag with a bad mackerel.
1:37 pm

1:37 pm
MonkeyGames

OK, you win. Not ANY form of whaling.

Yeah, I won't be eating it again, but it was WAY better than the rotted shark delicacy.

Ewwww. Fear factor food. Those crazy Icelanders eat the weirdest things.

Oh yes. Very good friend. He ate half the jar of the rotted shark. I ate one piece because I was raised by an anthropologist. You could smell it through the glass. Not kidding. OK, I must off. Trif, if you need to talk you can always e-mail. I'll be on again later. Have fun everyone!

Raw tuna is much less fishy than canned tuna, Feather. My husband is the same way tho. More shark?

I like absolutely everything that comes from the ocean, being a Massachusetts gal. Raw oysters are where I draw the line though - phlegm on a shell. Gross

1:46 pm
Atalante

yep, my degree was marine biology, my PhD was marine palaeontology, mainly fishies
1:46 pm
Trifioso

the other thing I am not sure I could *knowingly* eat is eel. If you gave me a plate of some fish dish, I would happily tuck in, no worries. If you handed it to me and say "here, try the eel" I might not be able to hurdle the visual.
1:46 pm
Atalante

you dont'' ever get an eel on a plate :)

it's why I'm always twittering on about random dead fish and things I find on the beach!
1:53 pm

that is something we like to do too. my husband's new place is SMACK on the beach and apparently he has found all sorts of great stuff. I haven't been there, so I can't say, but the kids say it's cool. I myself am mad for sea glass, and my lifetime collection was large enough that I did my kitchen backsplash as a big mosaic made out of some of my collections
