    Nothing is impossible, your mind is your only limitation.

    A lot of people here used to wear gloves and a hat and wool socks to start out. Have you tried compression gear?

    I thought compression gear was for when doing spot ct on the chest and stomach?

    I'm in the water now

    Thank you for posting caroline.

    Having a decent day. At work so I can't CT.

    Got some recent blood work back showing that was somewhat discouraging (I'll post it when it all comes back), otherwise it's been a good day.

    Won't be able to CT for the next two days but will do it Friday and post results.

    So.....while you're on duty, you don't take showers or anything like it? Not being judgmental at all, just thinking outside the box, wondering if you could "squeeze" in a cold shower here or there? Don't you do like 3 days on 4 off or some such? Keep pushing the envelope, you're doing great!!!!

    Great question

    I ALWAYS take cold showers when I'm on duty and at home, I just never mention it in my posts because it seems so little I guess.

    Yesterday at I put about 30 lbs of ice in a garbage bag and took it down to the basement and set it on my chest for about 25 minutes before lunch.

    Not sure why I never thought of that before

    Wonderful, Fire! At the beginning it seems the changes needed are close to impossible. But we watch and prepare, and then opportunities present themselves, or we think of new solutions, and bingo!
