This sugar induced sense of euphoria comes from several chemical mechanisms in your brain. First of all, the sheer pleasure of tasting a chocolate treat or powdery donut stimulates your brain's pleasure pathways and the release of dopamine and endorphins, the chemicals that makes you feel exhilarated. You also get a quick surge of energy as the sugar hits your bloodstream

Unfortunately, that energized feeling lasts only as long as the sugar rush. Once your blood-sugar levels drop (about an hour or two later), you're left feeling drained and out of sorts.You become an addict looking for another hit."


Trish ignores the last part of that thing she copied into here and opens another bar of Galaxy whilst reaching for the Pinot (other brands are available )
Well, I'm no good at swimming, so it looks like I have not option but to stuff my face with choccy!

It doesn't actually go away, but over time the peaks and troughs get less severe and further apart.
3 years down the line I still have my moments but by and large I'm ok - although I know several people that may disagree with that last statement

That's a very sensible approach in my book.

I can't swim either and my own version of armbands is when two rather bulky chaps in suits take an arm each and politely escourt me from the bar Actuallly at my size they are usually DiddyMen but you know what I mean

Well that's something at least. I went to watch my youngest daughter playing the flute with the rest of her class today (my ears are still bleeding!). I found myself virtually unable to control my emotions, from crying to laughing. Good job I was well hidden amongst the othe parents!

I have to say, that I feel completely let down by the whole genetic 'counselling' thing...it was a case of....3 appointments....take the blood and let us know when you want it tested....then one more appointment to deliver the fantastic news!! I actually said at one pont .... "is that it then", to which she said yes. She did say that she'd write to my GP to see if they could offer me any counselling....gee thanks! Why not blow my world apart and then leave me to it!!

Oops, I appear to be losing my temper...better shut up now.

Ah .... I have my very own night in shining armour (well, soldier anyway!). I'm sure he would be only too willing to escort me from the bar, only his bad back wouldn't stand up to the job

Best to stay at the bar then

On the other post.... It's such a shame the HDA can't afford to have more RCAs to cover the UK.

When Hubs had his diagnosis confirmed there was an RCA at the Clinic and she took us to another room and asked if there were any questions needing answering or anything she could help with. The news was expected as Hubs was well into his symptoms anyway but nonetheless it was still a shock hearing the word "positive".

As much as I tell myself when Hubs is no longer with me I can walk away from the dreadful disease I doubt I would be able to turn my back on this place. I've told our new(ish) RCA to give out my details to anyone on her patch who might benefit from a chat or coming over to see Hubs and what we have in place to cope.

I'd like to think there is scope one day to get a group of volunteers with HD links to cover the UK and offer support, An offshoot of the MB in some ways.
I may even get back to organising 'Laydees what Do Lunch' at some point where I got to meet Members from MB (male and female) and many of us have stayed in touch. No reason why, with a bit more organising, such events couldn't be advertised more widespread (e.g. the Neuro Centre we attend at King's College).

Well! The Best place to buy would be indeed bodybuilding.com as iv been buying several supplements from that site and its completely secure but do chose express shipping otherwise some of your supplements might be stopped by customs.
