YAY for cats getting better!

My poor cat is having seizures, I think from the mold in my apartment. I'm trying to supplement her food with vitamin B / thiamine. I've read that thiamine can be an issue with raw food diets, so if you start to notice any neurological issues with Alvy, try adding some thiamine to his diet.

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Hellraiser 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:46pm DjLorraine:

R Noel Fox i found out in 2013 by the famous Dr Shoemaker that i have innate immune response. Mold severly effects my mitochonria, pain and brain fog. The first step in the protocol is get out of mold. It's been hard to do on measliy disabilty. I wish you the best in housing and life for you and your cat. It's also torturous when loved ones that are not effected have no idea what others are living with.
Avatar 3:46pm NikiA:

@Dreamyandseedy - yes, her voice has a gorgeous tone, but so does her guitar. It's so recognizable, I can recognize it from a few notes up front before she even sings
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Hellraiser 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:48pm Guido from Cologne:

OMG the Cover of that Libanese Bossa!
Any idea about the lyrics?
Avatar 3:50pm djsheilab:

Guido from Cologne— I had the same reaction when I looked closer. Wild!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 3:51pm Passaic River Blues:

@Guido: I was just thinking the same thing. Is that an AK-47 sitting against the wall? 1984 was a low point in the Lebanese Civil War, so maybe a comment about life during wartime?
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Hellraiser 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:51pm DjLorraine:

R Noel Fox i even went years where sound was painful. Music could not be in my life. Obviously i've had improvement and WFMU is my go-to for sound.
  3:53pm (another) Patrick in Hoboken:

Definitely making more noise...!
Avatar 3:54pm R. Noel Fox:

DJLorraine - The mold has ruined my life. I moved to Jersey City six years ago, both for my Lyme Disease recovery, getting out of sunless shitholes in Brooklyn; and excited to be closer to WFMU and hoping to get to really be a part of the station, maybe learn to board op. Instead I ended up developing Histamine Intolerance (I cant' eat anything artificial or more than two days old, or any canned ingredients) and chronic hives; and Interstitial Cystitis, which left me in constant abdominal pain and having to pee every 15 minutes. For five years I thought I was forever unfuckable. I kept getting sicker. My migraines were near constant. My boyfriend left me.

I'm also on Disability. I can't leave my moldy apartment until I get vaccinated because I can't afford to live my myself. But honestly, I've no idea where I'll go when I leave here. I'm too poor for affordable housing.
Avatar S.B. Boomer: Hellraiser 2021 Swag For Life Member 3:55pm Guido from Cologne:

@ Passaic River Blues: I was guessing so.
Avatar 3:55pm R. Noel Fox:

DJLorraine - Same. The migraines were so constant that I rarely went to shows.

I lived with a boyfriend with significant Tourette's who makes loud sounds constantly. It was hell.
Avatar 3:56pm R. Noel Fox:

Am I the only one getting Mario Brothers vibes from this song?

sorry about your kitka fox, its scary. i would offer to foster if i didnt have 3 cats, 1 of whom is dangerously possessive

Avatar 4:04pm R. Noel Fox:

DjLorraine : I've got Ehlers Danlos Syndrome too, so between that and the Lyme Disease / Bartonella, figuring out the mold was present and causing problems took some time. MCAS is common with EDS, so I just attributed it to that, even though all these problems never started until I moved into this apartment.

What's ADH?

Avatar S.B. Boomer: Hellraiser 2021 Swag For Life Member 4:15pm DjLorraine:

RnFox i just got checked for hEDS with the geneticist. I dont have the hereditary part but she sent me to PT because...i'm now hypermobile. It's dangerous and can be painful.
I've had mecfs texting buddies that got surgery for CCI due to EDS.

Anti diuretic hormone. Mold put a tiny tumor on my pituatary.

I'm very aware of the lyme. They tested me 6x . Sorry you suffer with that.
Avatar 4:15pm R. Noel Fox:

HyperDose: The only other tests are an MRI or a spinal tap. The regular vet told me to take her to a neurologist for those tests, and won't even change her medication to something else. Just told me to see a neurologist.

I can't afford that. I already spent all my savings on vet bills. I've got a GoFundMe going to try and raise the money, but... I'd rather just put her on a different medication and get her out of his apartment first. I don't want to put my cat through a SPINAL TAP if I can avoid it.

Been looking at 2br units all day. Almost nothing in my budget, add a cat to that and it's 0. So stuck for now unless I want to move to Philly (no thanks!).

DjLorraine - WOW! We are totally sickness buddies! I was told by a geneticist that I probably have "some kind" of EDS, but she's unsure which. I have all the comorbidities in my family (ASD, Tourette's, uterine prolapse), and my joints have all made sounds since I was in grade school. But I also have some kind of hereditary spinal deformity from the other side. I'm just a clusterfuck of shitty genetics.

I have had a "bright signal" on my pituitary that's undiagnosed for years, long before I moved to the mold. I also have PCOS and endometriosis and hirsuitism.

I fear I will have to get CCI surgery in the future. every vertebrae of my neck is fucked, and now they are sliding out of place. I originally got on Disability because it was thought my issue was Chiari Malformation, and The Chiari Institute looked at my films and said I was a candidate. But they only took Medicare at the time, and it took me three years to get on Disability. When they looked at my new MRIs, they turned me down. So.... who knows?!

Deborah Feldman, who wrote "Unorthodox," grew up in the Satmar Hasidic sect. I hail from outside Kiryas Joel in Orange County, NY, where most Satmars live other than Williamsburg. I remember learning as a kid that Satmars took the name of the town of their founding, Satu Mare (translation: St. Mary) in Romania. So Satmars are literally "Saint Mary Hasidim," one of life's little ironies.

when i lived in an apt in a city i was much more scared than i've ever been in my house in the country where neighbors are too far away to see. out here every noise has an explanation (usually a critter). in the city every noise in the dark was unseeable and unexplainable

sheila b., all. good friday to you all! cheers!
  5:50pm Miss G:

thinking of Mark Hurst and etc re: those anti-social medias, I just have to tell you, that for a person who did not participate and who _lost_ friends and loved ones, the ability to say "I told you so" does _nothing_ for my social standing -- they get irked even more
  5:50pm Jett:

Sending some positive, and loving vibes your way, @djsheilab Thanks for another beautiful and creative gift from you. Stay safe and well. These Friday afternoons are always so precious to me, and so are you.
  5:51pm Miss G:

(sorry) I would never actually say "I told you so" but they think, that I am thinking it.

It sounds so odd, but our plans just fell through. The threat of cold rain will do that when you can only hang out outside.

Great show, Sheila! Lots of unexpected and wonderful turns. Glad to have been here.

Be well, Boomers of the Sophisticated Booms!
