Laughing is better than crying

They don’t really do anything.

“Just try to push past it”

“maybe you’re faking”

“no that problem doesn’t exsist”-2 years later fly across the country to get surgery because it DOES exsist

“Just drug seeking”

“You’re tests are normal so obviously you’re fine”

“I think we should take away the diagnosis (that a specialist gave) because I don’t think you meet the criteria” (I meet all 5, only three are needed to diagnose)

“It’s all in your head, try hypnosis”

And a million more I can’t even count
My friends, family and doctors were the same when I had stomach and intestinal ulcers. It's all in your head, there's nothing wrong with you, stop seeking attention, blah blah blah. Doctors don't always listen and don't do a thorough investigation.

We’ll lucky for me I’m on an ultra high sodium diet :rofl:
You aren't really on a high sodium diet are you?
It's bad for your heart, kidneys and most other organs.

Love me a crisp sandwich! Pickled onion Monster Munch in a buttered butty 🤤 the best!
We had Twistie, Burger Rings and chip sandwiches back in the day. We didn't mix them but Twistie sandwiches were my favorite.

After we ate them, we would shrink the packets. They were made of plastic bag in the day and you put them under a grill for a minute and they shrunk down to about 1 inch long. You could push a needle through them while they were hot and we used to have bunches of them hanging our necks like a necklace. We mostly did this over the summer/ Christmas holidays when we got junk food.

I am, dysautonomia patients need high sodium and high electrolytes. Salt goes on EVERYTHING. The only way to help keep my symptoms milder

so in other words, they are trying to kill you

can you swap sodium for something else or does it have to be sodium?

No.
If she has a deficiency in someway of sodium and electrolytes all the time then she definitely can safely consume high amounts and it would also be beneficial.

For the average person you don't want to consume too much cause that can lead to a medley of issues. But if I'm correct, @JuiceBox52 has a deficiency of it and she needs it so things can run smoothly inside her and not be in as much pain.

Not really a deficiency, but yes, mild dysautonomia patients are encouraged to increase their salt intake by 2-4 grams daily, but severe symptoms or in flare ups increase up to 6-8 grams daily.

It doesn’t affect the pain, those are caused by other illnesses. My dysautonomia triggers fainting, high heart rate, low blood pressure, dizziness, brain fog, etc. if I stand up, my heart rate spikes, blood pressure drops and I lose vision and hearing for a few seconds to a few minutes. Thankfully I don’t USUALLY faint.

The autonomic nervous system needs help and my blood volume needs a boost. This doesn’t even describe the intricacies of any of it but that’s the basics

@Colin_T I get my sodium tested it’s always fine levels, never high

Scary and funny. Check out the video embedded in link below:

Wow. Looks like it's time to take care of the kangaroo problem and the food shortage simultaneously.

(Also: Quit feeding wild animals!)

(Also: "We also received information that some residents are using gel-blasters to move the kangaroos on, while others are trying to run them over in their cars. This type of behaviour is not only an offence but will cause stress to the animals and bring them into conflict with other local residents..." Might be a little late to worry about that)

The Roo's were there first.

Humans decided to build on their territory and now they want it back.

The real problem seems to be that people were feeding them. When wild animals lose their fear of people and start associating them with food, bad things happen. (I live in bear country; I know) All of us live on land that used to belong to wild animals. Most of us are disinclined to burn down our houses and give it back.

Still...your comment brings to mind one of my favorite 80s rock songs:

LOL, ah that's funny, especially the video of the skippy chasing the guy around the golf cart.

It's the male roos that cause problems. The picture of one of them standing facing the camera doing a body builder pose is a buffed up male in breeding condition. The males fight over territory and punch, kick and scratch other males. They can't tell the difference between male and female humans and just assume they are all males wanting to grab some of their territory and girls.

It's easy to fix, shoot the males that are causing problems and eat them or feed them to the dogs.
