    I have been ill recently and taken to watching the black and white movies on Gem in the afternoon and thoroughly enjoying them.

    Sizes are not the same in all manufacturers. It’s hard to go into a clothing or shoe store and no exactly what size you want.
    Shop assistants chat among themselves while serving or are too busy chatting to serve a customer. I’ve even been in a small shop and been served by a person who was still chatting on their phone in a foreign language. I made it quite clear as to how rude I thought he was. Some customers are just as bad going through a checkout or paying for a purchase while still talking on their phone.
    I was always taught that the customer in front of me deserved my full attention. In the office if the phone rang more than three times we got into trouble.
    Not happening these days.

    I have used CLR bathroom cleaner on my shower and it has brought it up lovely and clean. It’s not like the CLR that cleans kettles etc and doesn’t have a strong smell. I’m told that Aldi has a shower cleaning product that works very well and is cheaper than CLR.

    Jen, my apologies as I seem to have upset you. I did ask a question that you had already answered re side effects.
    Yes I did post in the Coffee Haus as after I had posted here I wasn’t sure if more people would read Coffee Haus than Health.
    Have a good day

    If what’s no good to me when I’m gone then I am happy for someone else to have. My name is on the organ donor list and I carry my card in my purse. My wishes have been conveyed to my family as I was told that at the time of my death they will get asked about donating my organs and they can say no.
    Before my hip replacement I organised a bone donation. The small piece of bone that was cut from me during the op has now gone on to help many people according to the thank you letter I got from Pluslife.
    I looked into donating my body after death but it’s a bit more complicated than organ donation. I also didn’t like the idea that when they had finished with me they would contact my family to see if they wanted me back to bury or cremate, that could happen well after my death. A funeral a week after death is bad enough but not months or years.

    Hi Salina and Hibiscusrose
    The doctor that prescribed Prolia for me was not my normal GP who is the one happy for me to wait awhile to see if I feel better ,which makes me think that he has doubts about this medication. However he has been happy to keep giving me scripts for my asthma but not testing me to see if I still need the steroid puffer.
    Not sure if a class action has been started yet in the USA but I know it’s being planned. Perhaps as with the Agent Orange Action many years ago they will let Australians take part.
    Your dentist needs to know that you are on Prolia as it affects what treatment you may need.
    Dental problems and itchy skin and rashes are on the side effects list.
    Sadly some people have been suffering long after the medication is out of their system.
    It’s great to have a Dr you can trust and is informative and honest, rare finds from what I can gather.
    I have lost faith in mine so that is why I am going to the herbal clinic. She has been in business for 40 years, grows all her own herbs on the clinics property which is also her home.
    If going natural can fix me then thats how it will be, more costly than a GP but could be worth it.
    Salina , my husband is a Vietnam veteran so we can access a lot through DVA also Alzheimers WA and Carers WA are wonderful people. I have been blessed with the best family a Mum could wish for, one of whom has property on which we have a small unit and another lives close by, so lots of help from family as well.
    I wish you well ladies on your osteoporosis journey and I will let you know how I go at the herbal clinic.
