Re: My Year 2019 and Health or lack of!

Hello, Thank you all for responding. Acupuncture I don’t see as an option due to the cavities in my knee being so wide that it’s basically ‘bone on bone’ pain. It really hurts and so far the steroids seem to have made little difference if any. Regarding Osteopathic intervening I am uncertain but wil...

Hello
Yes, my Doctor and myself are aware of the Americans reporting.
Statistics,,,,,,,
I’ll try anything as I’ve been in pain so bad that any relief is very welcome. I’m sitting here with a sore knee but will await another day

Re: My Year 2019 and Health or lack of!

Hello,
I’ve been and had the Steroids injected into my knee joints! Oh it hurt! Apparently I should notice an important improvement in a matter of days.
Here’s hoping......

Have bought camping bits from china.

Wouldn't dream of buying a tent.

There would also be customs and duty issues.

Hello!
There are no import issues.
The Naturehike tents are in my opinion excellent and good 3 season tents.

Yes I’m still a Thorn cycle owner of a number of various models. I do also have a Condor Fratello. I wish I could live in Southern France...
