The morning had been like any other, or at least it seemed that way. The sun rose just like any other day, beautiful and radiating the warm colors of light. To the few people who were already awake to witness it, the sight would likely leave them with a satisfied smile. The many others who were still asleep would instead have to contend with something far more pressing. At the crack of 5:45 AM, every cabin door would open with the force of a giant throwing a mountain. Those who investigated the phenomenon would see an ethereal warrior, a red specter of a woman who was determined to wake everyone up. Those who instead waited in their rooms or required extra handling to wake up would be physically dragged out of the cabin. Either willingly or forcefully, these many spirits would take the Campers to the Arena, giving only the explanation that Enyo demanded it.
Regardless of how the campers arrived at the arena, they would see a very strange sight. The Arena already had many inhabitants.... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am on self-isolation until baby is born (April 27) and am so understimulated and stir-crazy, I desperately want an outlet for my energy. The problem is that I have horrible SPD/pelvic girdle pain that has been pretty debilitating. I’m just wondering if anybody has found a workaround where they can still exercise and if so, what type of exercise you’re doing?
I was mucking around with transmog and found this belt gives your Tauren (curious about Draenei) a skull tail ring. Pretty cool little thing I nearly didn't notice.
Did it make delivery more difficult? Did it cause complications? I'm 34weeks and I'm satarting to feel it right after training until the next day. I'm worried I'll have a hard time during delivery because of it.
Also, any tips on what to do would be much appreciated as I've searched around here and a few people suggested seeing a pelvic floor PT or specialist but unfortunately we don't have that here where I'm from. TIA.
I've been putting up with a Tackla girdle for over 10 years that's been too big for me ever since I bought it. It feels nice when it's on but it's definitely too big (hangs over my knees onto my knee pads). Not sure why I never really cared to make a change, but here I am now!
I've been trying to find a good ice hockey girdle but can't seem to come to a conclusive answer! It seems there are a lot of rave reviews for the nonexistent Reebok 9k, but what else is out there? I'm mostly decked out in STX gear these days since I appreciate the quality and price (great value) but they only make pants, whereas I much prefer the girdle. I came across the True girdle, which looks pretty nice even when compared with the Warrior QRE girdle (which many folks seem to be happy with) but I'm curious if anyone else has any thoughts here? I would be using it maybe 1 day a week just for a senior men's hockey league (beer league). I already skip the shoulder pads so I don't need anything super p... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm rereading the silmarilion right now, and I've noticed that, while the Girdle of Melian is supposed to form an impenetrable barrier against invaders, there are many mentions of Doriath fighting wars on its borders. For example, Turin and Beleg are described as fighting together on the northern marches of Doriath, and Beleg tries to persuade Turin to return to Doriath after the death of Saeros by telling him that they are being hard pressed by orcs. Why does Doriath have to fight like this if it is guarded by the Girdle?
My buddy is trying to get a hold of one. First question is, is it legal? Any special permits needed?
And if legal, any information on where to look for one?
As the title says, I'm looking to see who the community thinks should get onslaught girdle priority in Loot council system.
b) DPS warriors
Your feedback is appreciated
19, male here. I was diagnosed a month after I turned 17. I can still walk semi-normal, but I can’t get up from the floor without a support, and I can’t run or do stairs. As my arms and quads get skinnier, I can definitely tell my stomach is getting fatter. I can’t think of any exercise that will get rid of body fat without damaging my body and speeding up MD. I don’t have access to a pool I can get in/out of. Is there anyone out there with a similar situation? Are there any exercising guides out there for people with LGMD? Please, let me know, and thanks a lot
I just had a first consultation with my seamstress re: alterations. Beyond being whacked with a $200 price just for the hemming (!), I’m also being told that I need to get a much more slimming undergarment. Mind you, I am a size 2 and am very happy with my physique, but I am also a 52-year-old woman with a tiny bit of belly fat that my fit-and-flare crepe dress will be unforgiving of.
The challenge is that my dress is backless and dips down fairly low: https://imgur.com/gallery/Jnj7FF1. I already bought a whole array of potential shapewear, one of which (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IQA1ZRW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) seemed great, but I wore it to my appointment today and the seamstress said it wasn’t holding me in enough. “You need a girdle” were her words. But what girdle could I get that would work with that low back? Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
The past two days I have been in the worst pain, it’s like a severe pressure or pulling around my pelvic floor. It’s the worst when I’m sitting or laying down. And it starts in pelvis and kind of wraps around to the back side. I’ve had an ultrasound and the baby is fine but just wanted to see if anyone else experienced this pain.
Now that spring is here, I finally got a chance to do the tile girdling technique that /u/fatherofcajun did a video on. I'm really excited to see how much nebari these j. maples will develop.
Have been using the same pair of hockey pants for almost 10 years and they finally fell apart on me. The plastic protective piece fell out of my right leg in the middle of a game lol.
Anyways im thinking about changing over to a girdle and shell.
What are y'alls preference? Is it gonna feel really foreign? Im ok with it being snug cause I would like to feel more protective.
Also a note that im pretty short but not exactly skinny. About 5'4" and 160lbs. Makes pants a little easier to fit over my jock and such I'd imagine. Might be hard to find a perfect fitting girdle but maybe a junior XL? Is junior gear less protective at all?
Cool with being able to lose using suspenders as well. Anyway looking forward to you thoughts. Gotta grab something for a game Monday. Thanks!
Also if yes, does anything happen if I take off the girdle halfway through the romance?
Just wondering about people’s experiences. I’m 25 weeks and I’ve quite suddenly, as in, in the last two weeks, developed PGP to the point where it is impeding my mobility - I can’t walk long distances, I have to walk at a snail’s pace like an old lady, and at certain times of day I have trouble doing simple tasks like bending over, putting my shoes on or getting out of a chair without using my arms to pull myself up or getting my husband to pull me up. It’s like an aching or pulling feeling in the ligaments of my groin that gets worse the more I walk.
I had a midwife appointment just before Christmas so I mentioned it and she referred me to some group physiotherapy sessions in January, but that feels like a long wait when I can’t even get off the sofa unaided.
But anyway, has anyone else had anything similar? How much does it affect your life and how severe is it? Am I right in thinking it goes away after pregnancy? Any tips for dealing with it before the physiotherapy?
I’m 32+1 and have started to mentally prepare myself for delivery. I have pretty painful pelvic girdle pain and was wondering if any of you all have delivered a baby while suffering from this and if you have any pointers to avoid exacerbating it.
Is a random drop the only way to get this belt (plans for the belt)? Or can you try with blood shards or upgrading rares?
32 weeks and FTM. I am hyper-mobile in my sacorailliac (scuse spelling!) joint which I have been managing so not sure if it’s related but the last week the pelvic pain has been insane! Like I struggled walking today and sitting is really awkward.
I’m ‘all bump’ apparently so it’s sticking out front which doesn’t help.
Anyone else suffer and have any advice?
Just an FYI, some of you may not see this as ninjaing, but Lilpepper (Orc Warrior) from End Game was mistakenly master looted Onslaught Girdle off of Ragnaros, as the ML misread the number of his PR (Priority Rating) and did not realize this other warrior in the guild had more PR (of our Effort Points / Gear Points loot system); the Onslaught Girdle was looted to Lilpepper on accident. Immediately from the moment the belt hit Lilpeppers bags, it was said across discord and raid that it was mis-looted to him, he then replied on discord with "no it was definitely looted to the right person" and proceeded to run away from the rightful winner of the belt who was opening trade with him and he consistently cancelled trade and then equipped the belt. (you can now trade loot that was mistakenly looted in Classic for those of you who didnt know). Lilpepper was pulled into an officer channel of discord and spoken to, and he chose to NOT try and put a ticket in with a GM to get t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just wanted to share the three things that have really allowed me to continue my life after herniating a disc around 5 years ago.
Pilates was literally a life saver. An increased awareness of how my tight hamstrings were triggering the pain around my herniation has been infinitely helpful. Pilates allowed me to have enough body awareness (I, like many men, have no idea where my body is in space) to pursue yoga (much cheaper than pilates) which is really good at keeping hamstrings loose.
Lastly, I feel like an idiot, but I wear a super tight girdle when I sit at my desk job. Keeps my posture perfect and really, really helps me.
I don't want to assume that any of these things will be helpful to anyone else, but I just wanted to put them here in case it could possibly be helpful to anyone else.
hey guys, im looking for some advice for what i assume fits under the umbrella of pelvic girdle pain.
ive had issues with my hips for years, but about 10 months ago i was in an accident - i was hit by a motorbike and fell on my butt, which messed up one side of my sacroiliac joint - nothing too dramatic but i wasnt really able to sit for a few months without pain (still cant for longer then like 30 mins). since the accident, ive also been having more pain in the surrounding areas - these days my biggest problem is that sitting or walking or even wearing tight trousers causes a lot of pain in my symphis pubis an radiates to the insides of both my legs. i also have pain on the side of my hip joints, i used to assume its hip bursitis. the sacroiliac joint itself doesnt hurt as much anymore.
becaue of this pain, the range of exercises i can do is very limited because the area is super sensitive - most of the time, even lying on my back trying to do breathing exercises causes a lot of p... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm looking to upgrade from a Bauer One.8 girdle I've had for over 5 years, and am considering the Bauer S29 girdle but can't find much reviews on it online. Does anyone have one? What do you think of it? It's that, or the 2S Pro girdle (I find it much larger than expected). I also find it annoying you have the buy the shell separately (come on Bauer!).
I also checked out the CCM Super Tacks girdle; I love the protection but it seems a bit too heavy and bulky. And I don't know if I can stand the inside crotch liner. I've also been thinking about the CCM Tacks 7092 girdle. I'd welcome your feedback and suggestions, thanks!
Yesterday I had a pretty crappy day. I was admitted to my local hospital by a family doctor as I went to see her with regards to pain I’ve been having throughout my pregnancy.
I was diagnosed with severe constipation that is causing most of my stomach discomfort. The gynaecologist then examined me by pressing on different areas of my stomach and when she pushed just above my pubic bone it was super painful. She was pressing on the soft area NOT my bone/joints.
She told me this was pelvic girdle pain and sent me on my way with a script for pain killers and laxatives. They also did an ultrasound and baby was fine aswell as an internal examination and said my cervix was nicely closed.
I’ve heard of pelvic girdle pain but I always associated it with bone/joint pain?? The pain I’m feeling above my pubic bone doesn’t feel like a ‘bone’ pain if that makes any sense. The fleshy/fatty part feels tender to the touch. Occasionally I get pain in my hips but I just figured that... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've been looking everywhere on Google and I can't find a way to make a medieval fabric girdle that looks something like this:
Does this thing even drop in Shattered Realm? It's listed as an Ashes of Malmouth legendary, so should I be farming in those areas?
I've run SR on Elite, shards 75-76, about 95 times. Still haven't seen the fucking thing.
Am I just unlucky?
Hello there parents-to-be!
I'm 21w now. I've had pelvic girdle pain for weeks now. I'm already looking into yoga, swimming physiotherapy, acupuncture... you name it.
I'm now considering a pelvic support belt mainly for walks and outdoors stuff with my kid, but I'm a bit lost especially with so many brands and types to choose from.
What should I be looking for when picking a belt? Any features or things that may be useful later in the pregnancy or post birth? What helped / has helped you?
I'll be grateful for your advice!
You would not believe the amount of intrathermic reactance that gets totally wasted by these older rigs! Really makes you appreciate that we don't have to worry about Kharnoff pitting or retrangulated semiplex encodings anymore. I won't have to remember the dreaded "left-foot rule" anymore, now that my aural-voltaic wafers are coming out nice and clean.
I'm pretty sure I have PGP/SPD. It ticks all the boxes: extreme pain when walking, rolling over in bed, getting up from sitting in a low chair, lifting my legs to put my pants on. I can avoid pain by clenching my butt and being very careful getting out of bed. I always thought SPD only manifested in pain in the front of the pelvis/groin, but seems like it can be in the butt as well which is what I'm feeling (as well as popping/grinding throughout the pelvis).
I've seen two doctors and am going to PT. No one's used the term PGP or SPD, the first doctor I saw called it "posterior pelvic strain" on my PT script. The latest doctor I saw was super vague about what's going on, was just like "it's soft tissue". All the resources I see online seem to be Australian/UK/Canadian.
I know it's dangerous to self diagnose and I will definitely be seeing many doctors (OB and PM&R) and PT in the coming weeks and plan on asking them. I just want to be sure I'm using the right lingo. I'm not sure... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi mamas. I’ve been dealing with what I’m pretty sure is pelvic girdle pain for a week and it’s excruciating. The intensity does seem to vary throughout the day but it’s always really bad at the very least. Wondering if anyone can share any wisdom about remedies. I’ve tried the support belt and it doesn’t help. Of course Tylenol is useless for everything. NP office gave me a PT referral but they won’t see me likely until after I deliver. If nothing helps, does it at least go away with delivery?
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy is a term for a group of diseases that cause weakness and wasting of the muscles in the arms and legs. The muscles most affected are those closest to the body (proximal muscles), specifically the muscles of the shoulders, upper arms, pelvic area, and thighs.
The severity, age of onset, and features of limb-girdle muscle dystrophy vary among the many subtypes of this condition and may be inconsistent even within the same family. Signs and symptoms may first appear at any age and generally worsen with time, although in some cases they remain mild.
In the early stages of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy, affected individuals may have an unusual walking gait, such as waddling or walking on the balls of their feet, and may also have difficulty running. They may need to use their arms to press themselves up from a squatting position because of their weak thigh muscles. As the condition progresses, people with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy may eventually requir... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just got a Reebok 9k and it's my first time in a girdle. I'm used to dressing with my shins and socks then stepping into my pants but it's a bit trickier with the tight fit of the legs.
Do you just lossen the leg straps every time or is it time to start going pants > shins > socks? Or is there something I'm missing?
Thanks in advance!
Anyone using these? I'm looking to change and saw these interesting concepts. Can't find too many reviews on them.
I'm particularly interested in weight and protection level. And any comparisons to other girdles (Reebok 9k and CCM supers and warrior alpha)
I'm used to girdles from my roller hockey days.
