    More beef bashing.

    The world, not the earth, is alas like a great cash/power driven spinning top that is slowly losing speed and momentum and ever so slowly commencing to wobble before eventually crashing back down to earth. If we can get rid of the cows first then the public will be glad to eat synthetic meat...

    There is a lot of good psychology in the scriptures of most religions and if applied to daily life can help us cope with anger/anxiety/depression but sadly it often appears to be the blind leading the blind when it comes to religious organisations/churches. Upon rejecting the messengers we must...

    As a child I wanted to be an altar boy but was turned down due to my lack of Latin skills but what proved to be a disappointment to me may well have been a lucky escape; but who knows!

    Enlarged prostate?

    Mostly during the day but can be limited to one or two toilet visits during the night; depending on how late I retire and how much liquid I have consumed during the latter part of the day. But despite the above, when I have to go 'I have to go', lest I leave my self in danger of peeing my...

    Not a lot of people know that! :) Or do they? :unsure:

    Enlarged prostate?

    I just realised that to say I had a face to face appointment wasn't quite correct, was it? Are you talking testicular biopsy, or bladder biopsy?

    Enlarged prostate?

    Actually got to see a doctor face to face yesterday and was examined and prescribed Contiflo XL 400 micrograms to assist with bladder frequency and control. Anyone else in here used Contiflo and how did they work for you? Doc said my prostate was enlarged but not unduly so but it did feel...

    Enlarged prostate?

    I find that I even had to start avoiding decaffeinated coffee but perhaps the chemical process they use for removing the caffeine may leave behind a lesser bladder irritant than caffeine. Also, it's not just the bladder frequency but keeping the bladder under control when the call of nature...

    Enlarged prostate?

    Just had a quick peep at that and scored 13. I did smile at the title though and thought that it should have been ..... Prostrate International Symptom Score! ;)

    Enlarged prostate?

    Thanks for the heads up on that, just finishing me washing and bringing it in; some sod is burning rubbish near-by. :eek:

    Enlarged prostate?

    Nope, not me! I'm still trying to get an appointment to see my GP over bladder frequency problems and a number of ongoing medication glitches.

    Enlarged prostate?

    Been there and had a lady doctor do the procedure and I'm pretty sure that she must have had well trimmed finger nails; or maybe it was just the one. I do feel sorry for any of the big strong guys that may insist on seeing a man doctor, only find out that said doc is actually gay. :rolleyes:

    Well put! The child, or person abused, is often too afraid tell of the abuse but upon telling of the abuse is not believed. As children we have great trust in our elders and have very simplistic beliefs. If you ever tell anyone I will murder your mother ....... if you ever tell anyone the...

    Good morning, are you up early, or are you up late, or perhaps are you having trouble sleeping? The abused are wounded people and need their wounds healing not retribution and present day children need protecting from abusers. Strangely the abused often, unknowingly, marry abusers and abusers...

    Sadly I have, in the past, met old people who have given up dreaming and said to me .........' I have now reached my three score and ten and am living on borrowed time'. :( Unfortunately the above folk hadn't read the passage that says 'Your old men shall dream dreams'.

    Interestingly there is a bible passage that says tell no man your dream but it would appear that the best translation could be tell no man your plans. There was a recent scientific report that said when we tell people about our dreams/plans our subconscious feels that in the telling we have...
