I'M Hooked UP!

Tonight I don't even have a picture, so here is a visual.
   4 wires, tingling legs, intermittent currents running down my legs,
encouraging better circulation,
three settings,
from comfortable to 
butt clenching,
running your nails over a blackboard,
forcing you to say,
Lower, lower,
reaching for the control,
and note to myself,
remember which way to decrease.
What I am referring to is the Dr. Ho Muscle Therapy System.
Recently my circulation and muscle aches have gotten really bad.
I have to say I felt incredible relief from using this last night,
and now I am up because they were throbbing again.
So I sit here with the battery pack
tucked at the neck of my pjs.
This kind of reminds me of a time when I tried hypnosis
for losing weight, same feeling in my hands and legs,
and then little beads were placed in my ears,
and when you got hungry  I was supposed to push the buttons.
I lost over fourty pounds in 3 weeks,
but put that on in about the same time..
Have any of you used the Dr. Ho system.
This is my opinion of the system.
It certainly makes a difference.
I have had it for over two years now,
you can use it for other areas too.
I am glad I decided to use it again,
I should be able to be out walking by the weekend/
next week I get some test results..
well my twenty minutes are up,
Unhooking and back to bed,
i will sleep peacefully,
Hook to my CPAP for sleep apnea.
I should be a bundle of energy by morning.
just maybe not tomorrow morning,
but one of these days it will happen!
I hope you are having a great week,
enjoy your day.
Take care.


  1. Sounds like this machine really helps you and that is a wonderful thing. I sleep with oxygen every night! I definitely sleep better nowadays but I still get up very early. I like that though! I can catch up on my bloggy reading!! I pray soon you do wake up with a bundle of energy!!

  2. Wow!
    Great description, Cinner.

  3. Wishing you lots of energy for your day, Cinner.

  4. Cinner, sending energy your way! I so very much and completely LOVE your autumn decoration here!!! The most beautiful, I think I'm going to try to decorate mine blog as well :-)) have a beautiful day Cinner, hugs!

  5. I am so sorry that you have to be "All hooked up" Cinner, but, if it helps! I hope you find some energy soon. That is hard to find for me too! I love your pretty fall background, I am so ready for it!! Love Di ♥


    Dr Ho's system sounds pretty amazing. Huh. Who knew? :-) I will look in to it and I am glad it works so well for you. I am doing my PT routines. A bit strenuous but I 'feel' the moves helping my muscles. Time will tell. I am still moving about slowly with the rollator but moving all the same - phew.
    Have a great day.
    Love you girl
    peace and hope.....

  7. I am happy there is something that is helpful for your new fall look. My heart belongs to fall. :)

  8. keep up the good work are so motivated to be the best you you can be and I'm in your corner cheering you on...

  9. Yes Cinner I have Dr. Ho's tens machine, it really helps my neck and shoulders. I have used it now for almost 5 lost without it. He has a new one with bigger pads out now but I think I will just go with what I have.
    Hope you are feeling better sweetie....:-)Hugs

  10. Bernie, I have the old one too. glad it helps with your neck and shoulders. hope you are well, hugs.

    Sarah, I am glad your in my corner, I am doing what I can each day. The rest is in Gods hands. hugs to you. be well.

    Dee, I think I am rushing fall a bit, but with no flowers it seems like fall, There were yellow leaves on the ground today, not a lot, but it is starting. i got this look just off the new blogger template design this is one of the nature background. I like the look. Enjoy the last days of summer. September can be a wonderful time of year.

  11. Gail, yes maybe even your doctor may know if it can help. glad you are still moving around with the rollator, a step at a time. love you and pray for you every day. hi to your Mom and best wishes.

  12. Diana, it is frustrating but we do what we can right. My blog background is from the new templates for blogger. they have some beautiful backgrounds. Fall will be here soon and we will all be enjoying the change in weather. I still laugh when I think of that bus that was parked across from your home. your post was hilarious that day. be well, think of you often, hugs.

  13. Birdie, I got this background off of the new designer templates for blogger, this was under the nature backgrounds, if you need any help let me know, although you can probably teach me a thing or two, if you need or have a question. let me know. hope your having a great day. take care. hugs.

  14. Wanda, thank you, I just need to bottle some from children that never stop. if only it were that simple. hugs to you. enjoy the rest of the summer.

  15. Anne, thanks, its a pretty look too. lol. hope you are well.

    SueAnn, much on my mind today, very hazy smoky here from the fires in British Columbia, one province over. I was coughing lots today. glad you have your energy and I too am a morning person. I think I still get that from being raised on the farm....but sometimes I am up at six and in bed by nine....there has to be a laugh in there that is before the stores even open. lol. be well. hugs.

  16. Oh Cinner....
    I do wish the weight loss journey was an easier road. I know that it can be tough and discouraging.
    I hope it's going well for you and that your pains go away as well.

    Have you ever tried eating all Raw?
    or mostly Raw?

    My parents went to a mostly raw diet to support my sister~ who was doing raw to fight her cancer.
    They have both lost 40 pounds and are no longer taking their blood pressure medicine.
    It has been quite amazing. And VERY healthy.

    There are many many recipes on line.

    Have a great weekend~

  17. Hey Cinner, I've never heard of this before but I will read up on it. Hope it brings you continued relief. xo jj

  18. Joanna, I have been doing this for the last few days, helping for sure. We have so much smoke in our area now from the B.C. fires. supposed to change in a couple of days. could not get outside at all. are you supposed to be on holiday. lol. kidding. hugs to you.

    Chasity, Congratulations to your Mom and Dad on their weight loss, that is awesome. they must be feeling much better. fruits and vegetables are the way to go for sure. I have to keep bread right out of my vocabulary and my house. lol. I am praying for Shauna and your family. smiles.

  19. ?hi Cinder just hopped over from Joanna, sound like you are going through a tough time, hope you get some relief "load of hugs"

  20. I love your sense of humor as you cope with the pain and discomfort. May you receive the relief you seek. Thank you for being such an upbeat role model and for sharing your story even when you don't feel so upbeat.

  21. Cheeky curves, thanks so much for stopping by, thanks for the kind wishes. that was really thoughtful of you. today is a good day as it has cooled off. take care and thanks again.

    Kathryn, thank you for the nice message. I never think of myself as a role model, some days are harder than others. My Dad was never a complainer,
    if you told him you had a sore foot, he would tell you you still had one...besides I know there are so many people worse off than me...we all have a bad day, as long as my good outweigh the bad then I am still laughing. thank you for your kindness. hope you have a great week. take care. hugs.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. They really make my day.
