As someone who has a good bit of pain and use several different types of things, I might suggest that if you have chronic arthritis pain, you might want to try Curcumin.  I had done a good big of reading and decided to try it and talked to my GP about it.  He said that he is taking it himself and that it wouldn't interfere with anything else I'm taking.  There is one possible consideration and that is that it shouldn't be used if you are taking any type of blood thinner as it also has some of the same effect, but not a strong one. 

I started taking the Dr.'s Best brand of curcumin as it is the correct strength and also contains a black pepper derivative (bioperine)which has been found to help with the ability of the body to use the curcumin.  I believe that it has helped with my pain management.  They are beginning to find that there seems to be a lot of good results from the use of this rhizome - not just for the anti-inflammatory effect.

The two BIG ovals are about 60" wide, as I said, and about 50" long, so there is no way to place them on a body that it would not look vulgar.  I believe those two big furry "eyes" even have eyelashes!

Yes, I could try to break up the pattern with a diagonal cut, but I really hate to put any work into it now that I see it.

I originally wanted a vibrant Tshirt to wear with white bottoms: my standard summer outfit.

I'm 'heavy' into doTerra essential oils.  I use their 'deep blue rub'.  I got started with using it when my Mother had cancer.  She had a spot on her neck and shoulder that even the morphine, etc wouldn't touch.  My chiro's receptionist suggested this.  This would stop the pain long enough for the heavy narcotics to kick in and she could sleep.

This discussion was starting in the Healthy Lifestyles/Eating/Weight2 thread, but clearly deserves its own thread. 

If you know of other posts that belong here, let us know.

Enjoy!

I'm tweaking Pamela's Patterns 113 (pants).  First time Ive used the narrow back instead of the wide back.  Also think I'm going to use her T shirt pattern (without dart) and alter the shoulder slope to see if that removes the drag lines which have been bothering me.

I think it'd be OK on the back of a top, on sleeves etc, but agree not leggings or the front of a top/dress or on a skirt.
I like the idea of a plain front.

my modified sorbetto needs a few more seams and some fitting on my body--i've worked the pattern but am not sure how it will hang on me.  if necessary i can add a half-belt at the back but since my alterswap's theme is "sleek summer" i'd rather not have any more details.--anne

lynda--i would suggest a long-sleeved tee or dress with the sleeves cut on the cross grain.  that way the ovals will be vertical.  if necessary you could make the body out of a solid color.  think cuffs, collar, sash, belt, pocket, maybe godets in the skirt--we're piecing, not necessarily cutting an entire garment from the unflattering shapes.  you have a real design challenge that may look fabulous when you are done!--anne
