  1. Hi Jennifer, I agree with both Susan's and Super Mario's replies. UTI's/kidney infection can cause the problems that your Mom is experiencing....confusion as well. Defintely get her a Docs appointment as it's something that can possibly be easily fixed with a course of antibiotics. A lot of the elderly don't drink enough fluids which can lead to a UTI because of dehydration ... so make sure that she keeps hydrated in the meanwhile. I had a UTI a couple of years ago .... I'm 58 and thought that I was going a bit doolally with it .... it was sorted with some

  3. Hi Dan and glad that you're finding the site helpful. Thank you for your question and I would probably advise to post separate subject matter on the SAH medical forums as more use to others who are searching for answers to the same. You would probably get a much greater response from other members as well. Good luck.

  8. Clare, Happy 6 year anni-versary! Hope you manage that run this morning and it will probably feel quite cathartic! Enjoy your day Clare, you've done so well! Hears to many more years to come! xx
  9. Bless you Sally and just glad it's all over for you now .... well done and I know how difficult it is! x Never be afraid to ask for help to work out your problems ... it's not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength ... we worry far too much about how people will judge us, but over the years and from this website, I've seen too many people struggle and that comes first hand from my own experience. It took me a long time to ask for help...and that's my only regret. Is it common how you've felt? Yes, it is and I've always hoped that within our little online community,
  10. Happy 17th Anni-versary SM! Hopefully this time next year, you'll be back on your adventures again! Have a good day and well done! x
  11. Sally, this time tomorrow, it will all be over with .... don't forget, that you always have that buzzer to press ... let us know how you get on. x
  12. Sally, I totally understand ....promise me that you'll give the GP a call in the morning? ... You're not alone and it's not a sign of weakness ... I still have help with the scanner and flying as well (not that we can fly at the minute!) ... I waited far too long to get help ... don't be me ... x The main thing is, that you manage to get your scan done and get some peace of mind ... you'll be okay ... just pick up that phone! xx
