  1. Very interesting, thanks for the insight. I had a lung op about 5 years ago. I considered myself lucky that my op went very well, looking around the ward you could see the various Dr's names over beds, safe to say some patients fared better than others depending who they got! I often remember a strange consultation with my surgeon. He told me to keep away from Drs. He was a bit of a joker, but I sensed he was being serious, which unsettled me at the time. Subsequently I had cause to see Drs during a distressing time for my own poor health and whilst helping my Mum with her cancer trea
  2. Thanks for the info. I recently swapped to some more eco friendly cleaning products and some of my toothpastes and deodorants, due to fears about cancer and other autoimmune health issues. I've never used talc for this reason. I have more products to research such as makeup, suncreams etc! It's a psychological retraining, as you get used to using brand names from childhood and associating them with cleanliness.
  3. My first time in a shop in a while, I did bring a mask for first time as I was worried about being refused access, and put it on as I entered. I have bullous lung disease, it was literally impossible to breathe. I stood in line, immediately removed my mask, no one said a word or looked unhappy though they saw, though they were all masked.

  4. Hi, I joined a few months ago, when site a bit up and down, but been reading for a while. I have general interest in questioning what we are told by elites and MSM, but recent politics and Covid brought me to joining the site to comment. I can't remember my pre-Covid preoccupations though! Seems a lifetime ago! Sharing experience and supporting each other appeals. I stockpiled a bit months before the pandemic, as I didn't like where things were going and I have family to think of. Family laughed at the time, but they are inclined to listen now! I have been directed to other resources on he
  5. Congratulations on quitting! I have quit, I was nursing my Mum through cancer and then she passed away, so I felt I needed something to take edge off the panic. I stayed low dose 50mg, which did help, but dr tried to whack up the dose to 200mg when it was a couple of months after and I cried mentioning Mum, which I think is natural grief stage. I bartered down to 100mg, but never took the higher dose. I then cut tablets in half, then half again etc, gradual decrease. Saved me money too! Had bad couple of weeks about 2 weeks ago, flashbacks and anger actually, but getting stronger emotiona
