Sorry you've had a bad week and hope the trip to NYC
does you good, and hey you'll have to tell us when it airs
and what the topic were I like Dr. Oz too, but sometimes it's just
TMI to handle...If I could go I'd ask him about congential heart
defects and if he plans to do a show on those as he is a heart surgeon...
Best wishes for a better week and keep us posted on your trip
wow NYC your Lucky...

Hi Char,

Thanks for the well wishes! I'm pretty excited about seeing the show live. I really like watching Dr. Oz. A lot of the information I already know (at least the biology part of it), but it's still neat to watch & learn -- especially about the healing properties of foods & other natural agents.

It'll be a whole-day event, as it takes about 2 1/2 hrs to get to the city (1 hr by car, then 1 1/2 hr by train), but it should be a fun mother-daughter day. I think it will be good for me to just get out of the house & go do something.

I have no idea what the topic of the show that we are seeing is going to be. I sure wish he'd do a show on chronic pain. It would be nice to educate people about treatment options & help get rid of some of the stigmas associated with pain meds & people who take them. Plus, then I could show off my fancy stimulator! smilewinkgrin

hugs,

Hi Skeye:
 
You are going to be near my neck of the woods, I live about 60 miles north of NYC.
 
Enjoy your trip and your time with your Mom, I look forward to hearing all about it!
 
Take care,
Lorie

Hi all,

Well, just got back home. It was a long day, but a lot of fun. We got to see a fun taping, as it was "ask Dr. Oz celebrity edition." They didn't tell us what the topic was going to be until we were actually sitting in the studio & even then, they didn't really tell us who was coming. We got to see Emril Lagassi & a several others in the studio & then a couple more via satellite/video -- pretty neat.

All I can say is boy there is a lot of energy on that set. We were in the studio for about 2 1/2 hrs & it was exhausting (all that clapping & screaming). It probably helped that they had a comedian as the "warm-up guide" to get us all riled up in between segments. But boy did I have a headache when we left (partly due to the several obnoxious ladies siting behind us -- boy did I want to turn around & slap them a couple times. they were very loud & rude with some of their comments).

I guess the episode will air sometime in the next 2 weeks. I'll have keep an eye out for it -- don't know how much I was on camera, but I'm sure they got me at least once or twice.

hugs,

Skeye

Lorie,

You must not be too far from me then, as I'm about 60 mi north of NYC as well (although in CT, not NY).

Forgot to mention that I had to go through a metal detector for the first time since my stimulator implant in July. I totally expected to set off the alarm (was told by my rep when I had the surgery that I'd probably set off metal detector alarms). I was all ready with my implant card out & everything, but I didn't end up setting it off! It was very anticlimactic.
