Hi!

I get a magazine called Interweave Knits and they have one for spinning and weaving. You'll find some good links from here that might help.

interweave.com/weave/

Another listing that might help:

http://fiberarts.org/directories/guilds/Ohio

Try contacting this lady if you can't get anywhere, she was listed in Interweave's site:

Cleveland
Fleece & Flax Guild
Contact: Joyce Jones
E-mail: [email protected]

Hope this helps. I'm a knitter, I don't weave - but I know some weavers and they all like that mag.

Anyone else tired from their long weekend? I can't wait to have our "Old" energy level back. I went to the gym in hopes of getting an energy burst and all it did was make me more tired.

Hi all,
just got back from my Dr. and I explained everything to her. She looked at the pills my gyno just prescribed, and said the amount of estrodial I am taking is a bit high, but for someone as young as I (47)??? she said it is necessary for right now. She said maybe in a year we can decrease that. She also put me on lexapro and said within a month I will be feeling a whole lot better even better than before the surgery. WOW can you imagine that. I am going to start them tomorrow and pray that it works. The DH is all for it I think after I get back into the mode I am going to have him take some antidepressants and get him into happy land. Anyway, she is going to keep a close eye on me and monitor. So I feel better just talking with her today, she really understands and I knew just talking to a female would help me too. Hope everyone is doing well. I will be soon (I hope)
Karen

I think I twisted my ankle at the gym this morning. Darn it! Just when I was getting back into the swing of things. I'll take tomorrow off and it should get better. I'm happy that I'm complaining about something different than surgery pain . I think there may be an end to all of this!

From your experience, how shortly after having a lap can one get adhensions? I know I have smething wrond with me and I just want to get to the bottom of it. I wonder if adhensions and ovarian remnant syndrome would feel the same.

Have any of you heard of POCT? A co-worker was just diagnosed with that this morning. I am familiar with PCOS. I was unable to find any good search results for POCT. I wonder if the DR misspelled it.

On a frustrating side note my DR denied a refill on my meds and said that he can no longer help me. So, I was kinda sad today. And pretty upset with him. I have made up my mind that male DRs are not the way to go. I have an appointment with a female on the 6th. Which I hope goes well and that I might be able to get some answers. I talked to another male DR a few weeks ago and he said that I shouldn't have a choco cyst so soon after my surgery, which is partly why I asked about the adhesions. But the same thing happened after the lap that I had in '05.

I am gonna finish working and go home, rest, and bake some bars for the pharamedics that came to my rescue

nevermind abut POCT, the DR appearently wrote her diagnosis down wrong. She does have PCOS.

Thank you for the info MAETIGGER, I started today felt a little dry mouth but non of the other yet. I take the 10mg, I heard about the weight gain, don't want that. Are you happy with it? I will be glad to really get some good sleep. Is there a reason why you take it at night? just curious. I can feel a new me is coming soon.
