Dialysis: General Discussion / Re: Im not diabetic
« Last post by Aaisha.Dar on Today at 06:37:31 PM »
When I was in the hospital, they came to take me to a session just as lunch was coming, so I went without as they had previously said they did not want people to bring food to the dialysis ward. At the end of that session, I blacked out, fell against the machine and cut my head. That opened a whole new can of worms as far as testing, but the Dr who was overseeing my case in the hospital told me never to go again without eating, no matter what the people in the dialysis ward said.
Oh my goodness, that is extremely sad. I cant explain how I felt reading your experience. How long ago was this? What happened to your head afterwards? Even if i do eat I still feel a bit dizzy, does that mean I just need to eat more?

Glad you had an easier session. Hopefully they can find a setting that makes it easier all, or most, of the time. It's hard enough as is without constant wondering if something is going to go wrong.  And definitely applause for the .2.

Yes I could assume all sorts of triggers could be determined, UV, Pollen count, temperature, pressure etc...

For example in your case it might not the rain but the change in pressure or a specific pressure level from the frontal systems, but with good reporting of your pain level you could figure out if moisture is the trigger or something else....

Political Debates - Thick Skin Required for Entry / Re: Dead Saudi Guy

Ukrainian Tracksuit pretty much sums it up.  This is more about how we define American values and whether or not they are for sale.  It looks like they are.

Remember that the murderers of 9/11 were Saudis.  The United States literally lets Saudi Arabia get away with murder.

He was murdered for the work he did for a American newspaper.  He lived in the US and was there to obtain paper work to Mary his Turkish girl friend.  The Saudis flew into Turkey with a bone saw.  Clearly equipped t deal with a body the weíre planning on dealing with after they killed the journalist.   It appears that t Presidunce closest allies deal with the opposition the same way Putin sent a hit squad to England with nerve agent to kill a opposition man and daughter, the Crown Prince sent a torture squad to kill and dismember his opposition.

Why is this guy so important?
I personally think that you asked this question in bad faith and are not interesting in the answers. It seems you wanted use the question to make a few statements on the subject and many other subjects.

It is not so much him as the fact that he was (allegedly) killed in an embassy in a foreign country at the orders of the Crown Prince for writing news reports in an American newspaper.

I just don't see how this is Trump's fault.

It isn't. The criticism of Trump is over his attitude after the event. Sort of "Don't care, they are always doing this sort of thing." Considering that he was killed for reporting in an American newspaper (NY Times) the least Trump could do is be apoplectic about it, even if he actually does nothing useful. His attitude basically gives the impression that Trump thinks it is OK to kill reporters who piss you off.

You are quite knowledgeable being from another country.  Just saying that because I really don't know what politics go on in Russia.
Iím in Canada now so I get a lot of US news. My husband is a former military guy in Russia and he works in international business/security stuff so there are always these discussions at home.

The Saudis obviously gave permission to the Turks to enter the embassy. Article 22 of the Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which both countries are signatories, states only permission lets the host nation enter. As well, searches cannot be conducted on the premises, so, itís rather obvious.

This permission and entrance was only granted days after the journalist went missing.. with cleaning crews in and out... Make your own conclusion. 

Iím just too jaded to think a change of party or political figurehead would change any relations with the Saudis. Weíve known what theyíve done for a long time but turn a blind eye.

This is the case where a national leader will be sharp in their words and promoted policy but, at the diplomatic level, itís how can we compromise?

Saudis have too much leverage and use to put them into the cold.

It is obviously a different situation but I think back when Turkey shot a Russian jet for being 2 km over their airspace. One pilot died, from being shot at on the ground. We made a big stink: sanctions, cancelation of military deal, gas pipeline threats, regulations on trade and travel.

But now, itís all good, because they are beneficial economically and strategically.

So, I expect this Saudi case to be a diplomatic nightmare and headache for Trump but, it will pass.

I hope Iím wrong.
