Good news its clearing, just had a random thought- does this mean if you walk like your drunk when you are sober do you walk sober when your drunk??? (I do have a VERY random brain)

Hi Davina,                        06 December 2018

Very interesting question. Since I do not use alcohol, illegal substances or any other mind altering things, I wouldn't know. Maybe one of these days I'll do a supervised experiment and see what happens. If I do, you'll be the second to know, Dena will be the first.

Thanks, Best Always, Love

Dear Christine:
I am so glad that you are still alive and kicking and have not had another emergency room forced visit...   
Regarding med Lisinopril, I have a friend taking it for her blood pressure and it has so many bad side effects, her biggest issue is dry coughs and terrible continuous headaches.

 For her blood pressure it has been working great but she is due to visit her doctor next month and talk about alternative blood pressure meds... there are so very many available and perhaps her doctor can be comfortable prescribing something different...   then of course with a different med there may be new and different side effects to deal with or it just may not work as well for her.   So far she has had no issues with blood clots as you have experienced.

.... I am so glad that you have found a very good advisor and confidante in our lovely @Dena  .... based on her myriad and plethora of past posts here on the Forums she is quite knowledgeable on things like this and other issues relating to transitioning.

Thanks for posting and keeping us up to date....  try to stay out of the emergency room if you can, the food, if there is any is not good, the beds are uncomfortable and it is so noisy that you can't sleep!

Hugs and wishing you good health as always,
Danielle


Hi Danielle,                   06 December 2018

The dry coughs are fairly common with many BP meds. I could barely speak while using lisinopril, my voice would squeak, be extremely hoarse and sometimes no voice at all. It's an old med and works well if you are lucky enough to escape the lousy side affects.

You're glad? I'm thrilled and feel very privileged to have her as my best friend, advisor, confidant and the person I love and cherish beyond all else. She has brought more joy to my life than I have ever known prior to meeting her. 


Congratulations to you, Chris, and to @Dena. You are both important to us here on Susan's, and now to each other as well! I hope your recovery goes quickly.

Hi Randy,                  06 December 2018

Thanks Randy for the kind thoughts and congratulations. Dena is the most precious person ever in my life. She has an IQ that Einstein would be envious of. Her knowledge base runs from Nuclear Energy to cooking and everything in between. It is extremely rare that I use Wikipedia, I just ask Dena.


Well my friends, I thank all of you for your thoughts and gracious comments. I also want to thank Dena for being in my life; I Love her more than words can say.

Best Always, Love
Christine

Hi Randy R,                      07 December 2018

I'm thinking you will be quite surprised that I am posting this for you and all the folks I know at Aero Valley Airport (52F) in Texas. I hope you now believe that I wasn't joking when I told you I am a MTF (Male To Female) transsexual.

For me this has been a most fantastic adventure on the "Transition Highway." Here at "Susan's Place" I have met some of the finest people one could ever want to meet; this is where I have met the love of my life. Hopefully in the near future I will have all my ducks lined up and will be relocating to Phoenix, AZ to be with Dena.

So now you know where to find me and learn of my adventures. I'll be back out to the airport sometime this next week. It will have to be a day when the sunshine is other than liquid. Maybe we can discuss a certain 1969 Dodge 440 Six-Pack with 0002681 original miles on it that has been stored these past 49 years.

See you soon; take care amigos.

Best Always, Love
Christine

Hi Pamela,                        22  December 2018

Thank you young lady, I wish the same for you and yours. I love hearing from you and Linde, you both are great posters and have lots of great advice for those of us out here.

Quote from: Christine
My DVT seems to be getting better. I am satisfied with the med, Xarelto. I'm now on 20mg qd (once per day).This will last for another five months as the standard protocol is six months total which includes the starter kit with two separate dosages over the course of the first month.

This was a close call, which could have been a real disaster had it not been for Dena coming to my rescue with great advice: "Get yourself to the hospital emergency room immediately and not the Doc-In-A-Box variety." She saved my life and I cannot thank her enough.

If anyone out here experiences the same or similar symptoms, please follow Dena's advice and get to a hospital emergency department ASAP. DVT's are serious business and should not be looked at as though they are minor problems; they are serious and could result in death if not treated promptly and correctly.

Thank You Dena my Dear for saving my rusty bucket. I love you more than words can say and I always will.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!!!

Best always, Love
Christine

Hi Jenny,                         30 December 2018

Thank you Dear. Wishing you and yours a Very Blessed Christmas and New Year.

Welcome to Susan's; I see you are fairly new here and hope you have been welcomed by the official Welcome Wagon folks. I'm nobody special, just the "Good Humor Lady," an unofficial title Susan Baum bestowed upon me, so all I can do is welcome you without all the bells and whistles.

You are in a great place as Susan's Place is full of very nice, kind and knowledgeable folks, excluding me of course. Ask any question you have and don't be afraid it might be a dumb one. The only dumb question is the one we are afraid to ask.

Welcome to the club; enjoy yourself.

Best Always, Love
Christine

Hola, mis amigas y amigos,                   01 Enero 2019

Just a short DVT update; my treatment appears to be going well. My feet have regained some feeling that has been absent since 2007 when I was first diagnosed with Asymmetrical Peripheral Neuropathy with the left side being more pronounced than the right.

I have been on and off BP meds for about 10 years (best that I can remember). I have found that if I maintain a healthy diet and get a fair amount of regular aerobic exercise, I can usually wean (key word) myself off those meds. The reason I mention this here is I have a suspicion that BP meds may have contributed to the formation of my DVT.

A note of caution:

Never stop BP meds cold turkey. This is a prescription for a heart attack and or a stroke. Only do so under the supervision of a qualified heart doctor.

If at any time you suspect you have a DVT, get to a real hospital Emergency Department. DVT's are not to be taken lightly, they can kill you or cause you a crippling disability you don't even want to contemplate.


Dena, the love of my life, has been overseeing my treatment. She is the one that saved my life by telling me to get my buns to the real hospital Emergency Department and not some "Doc-In-A-Box" located in a Wally World parking lot.

We have discovered what appears to be good way of administering the medication Xarelto. It is supposed to be taken with food. It seems if the med is taken right after a fairly substantial meal the med performs much better. The swelling in my left leg diminished substantially when this has been done. Dena's thinking is that the med remains in the digestive tract longer when there is more food preceding it thereby putting more of the med into the blood stream.

Almost forgot: My high school Alumni Association has commissioned a new alumni directory. I was contacted by the publisher to update my records (not the prison ones). I decided to have them publish my bio under the name and gender I will have when I officially change them early this year. Thought this would be the ideal way to out myself to my classmates, saving me a bunch of stamps and time.

That's about it for this morning. Hope you all have a Very Healthy and Happy New Year.

Thank You Dena, You are my Guardian Angel and I Love You.

Best Always, Love
Christine
