Reading your post recon we should go scuba diving together LOL :silly:
Would be able to see you at the bottom, but the coming up might be a problem and we could then share the rehab clinic if either of us got that far. :pinch:
Your doc sounds as bright as one I once had.

(PS I can't even go snorkling :angry: )


Marley,

If I went diving, I'd start doing the "funky chicken" at around 15m on the ascent. Once I got to the surface, probably lose consciousness and then die.

I've been involved in one "funky chicken" moment and it wasn't fun.

As for snorkeling, think of the words "live bait." :dry:

Kind regards & hope you're doing ok!

Hi Bluerob
As I said going down wouldn't be the problem... the loss of consciousness and death might be a bit troublesome. I'm wouldn't be able to help you because I don't even do 3m at the local public pool! If I tried 15m, I would probably join you with the loss of consciousness. Something I do miss is that scuba experience there is nothing like it and nothing that will replace it.

Once I could laugh with everyone
Once I could see the good to me
Holding the world inside
Now the world is grey to me
Nobody can see you gotta believe it
Oh oh the night comes down
And I get afraid of losing my way
Oh oh the night comes down
And it’s dark again
“The Night Comes Down” Queen

Me too. It has been the only one that worked for my chronic lower back pain. I tried Norspan, Lyrica, Targin and Oxycontin all with awful side effects and no pain cut through. Coming off the Oxy was hell on earth. I had about 3 weeks of nausea when I first went on Palexia but the pain relief was terrific so I persevered and it finally went. No side effects at all after 10 months except an occasional numb leg when sitting in my office chair too long. I'm stlll on 50mg morning and night.
