Good luck to you and your Mom. Sorry to pry, but based on this post and a couple others, I'm thinking you have Fibromyalgia and it's Sister, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If so, I would suggest finding a Functional Medicine MD to work with and try a Keto diet. If you don't know, the functional part means they look to heal the root cause of illness instead of constantly bandaging it with drugs.Well, I'm glad to see that.you guys kept this thread alive and well in my absence. I still haven't bought an air compressor. I do have a nail gun that came a couple of days ago, so now I need to get the compressor. These past 18ish months have been difficult and not because of covid. My mom has been in the ICU twice and was on the vent a few days this last time, then in a nursing home for rehab for 7 weeks.... and my body is falling apart, bit I am damn determined to do some of the things I want to do on days that I can and an air compressor would help with that. I dont need it urgently (obviously) but I don't need it for quite as many reasons. I painted the inside of most of my house including ceilings, while she was in rehab.
So... my question now, and it is a dumb question, what type of nail gun would I need to hang new t1-11 siding. It's not a project I am doing currently and I hope that I can. But I'd like to know how best to prepare for it and that project would be the biggest project that I would use it for. The house is 28x50, single story ranch.
Also... appt in April to hopefully get to the root of whatever is wrong with me, but i refuse to give up whatever it is.
In the second link is a search engine for practicing MD's in your area.
The third link is a Documentary episode you can watch for free that features lots of Doctors and PhD's that talk about the history of food and how it relates to everything. It gets real deep. I saw it a couple of years ago and highly recommend it. The first result, S02 Episode 01 is what I'm pointing to. I'm trying to find more episodes, there is 11 or 12 I think.
No single diet has been shown to improve fibromyalgia symptoms, but for some people, following a ketogenic diet (low-carbohydrate diet) may reduce pain and fatigue.
