Good morning everyone and thanks so much for the replies.
Golitho you might try sprinkling a little powder inside the hose that usually helps. I describe putting them on is like putting on a girdle that is a couple of sizes too small. lol I just roll mine up the leg to get them on. There is no easy way of doing it that I am aware if except the powder trick. I have an abdominal hernia Golitho and its real pretty watching me sit in the middle of the bed putting these dang things on, lol.
As for the "blood letting " incident a little bit later that little deal caught up with me. I became light headed, felt faint, wobbly the whole bit.l But, I lost quite a bit of blood at the same time, think of an artery getting nicked and blood spurting out at a steady flow, thats exactly what happened to me. Unfortunately, both of my legs have these veins that are raised so yes a good target for a razor. I sort of know what my daughter goes thru now when she has her blood taken out every other month, but she gets pretty sick each time. She does it to get the iron levels down because of the hemochromatosis, thats the only way they can get the iron levels down is to take a unit of blood. Yuck.
The weather has cooled off so much this week, in fact it really cooled the last two days and omg, my body is screaming at me. I have been taking pain pills and muscle relaxers to make it thru the day. I have been waiting for it to cool off but forgot what it would do to the body.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. Hugs to all.
