Re: TIL...

I learned that Glucosamine is an excellent supplement to help with joint pain. Also, I think I might have arthritis.

Ouch.

Coincidentally enough, I was just chatting to my electrician about glucosamine and joint pain today. Freaky synchronicity.

Re: TIL...

The joints in my legs are always stiff and sore for the first few hours of my day. I always thought it was normal, that my joints just needed some time to "warm up," but I did some research and found out that it is actually a sign that my joints are not in good shape. I started taking Glucosamine, and within 3 days I stopped having any joint pain at all. Crazy.

Re: TIL...

I used to take the same supplements, for years, actually. Then, one day, I realized that I was still having the same arthritis pain, and the pills really didn't do that much for me. I THOUGHT they did, but hubby pointed out that I complained of knee pain just as much as I ever did. Then my doctor's office sent out a newsletter that mentioned studies showed Glucosamine and Chondroitin just don't work any better than a placebo.

On the other hand, it doesn't seem to have any side effects, unless you are diabetic, so it can't hurt you. I guess if you think it works, then it will. YMMV.

Today, I learned what "over the side" meant.

Well, it probably depends on how severe the arthritis is. I don't know that I have arthritis; I didn't actually go to a doctor. I just did some research about stiff joints and found out that my joints were not behaving as they should. My research also led me to Glucosamine, so I figured I'd try it out, and so far it seems to be helping.

Different people will also respond to supplements in different ways, so what works for somebody may not work for somebody else.

Many bodybuilders take Creatine before workouts to give them increased energy and bigger pumps in the gym. It's one of the most basic, widely-accepted bodybuilding supplements, and people have been using it for decades with great results.

You know what happens when I take creatine? I get sleepy.

Today I learned that you shouldn't tell someone you're gonna try to make it to something if you can't, in all likelihood, realistically do so.

Re: TIL...

Today I learned.... well, I'm not exactly sure what I learned. I'll let y'all draw your own conclusions:

While I was dropping off my youngest at daycare this morning, I heard a 4 year old girl saying to a woman (who I'm guessing is *not* her mother) "Remember when you came over to our house? Daddy says you can come over again!" I wouldn't really have paid much attention to that, except the woman was also desperately trying to shush the girl!

I learned today that stitches can be just as painful coming out as going in.
