Any Finnish people here?



Recommended Posts

I realize this is a loooong shot, but thought I would ask all the same. :) As the title says, anyone here from Finland (or living here, at least?)

Kind of doubt it, but,it should qualify you for Santa's Nice List! Yeah, the very short one. And LustyDraconianMaid yours in the absolute first choice if I ever win a lottery and can afford travel. Has been for years and years!
My opthamologist is Finnish, from the area where much Swedish is spoken so she is Trilingual, Finnish, Swedish and English, and suspect Russian and German but totally fluent there.
I'm American and I still fracture English, ask my Bari-Pals in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. And my Canadian cousins(yep a whole branch on my Family Tree) they gave,up correcting me long ago. Happy Christmas Everyone!🎁🎅🎄

Oh hey, that's pretty neat! I know there's some different areas in the US with lots of Swedish and Finnish peoples, though to be honest, I'm not sure where specifically. :P But yeah, a lot of people here are bi or trilingual, which is nuts! I'm struggling to speak Finnish myself, since it's one of the hardest languages in the world. But I'll get there (someday.)

Either way, happy holidays to you and everyone else! ❤️

        I get Brooks because I pronate. If you have a local running store that will look at your gait and make recommendations, that might be helpful.

      What's your experience w/the Dumping Syndrome?
      How long did it last?
      How did you cope w/it?
      Has the dumping syndrome gotten worse each time more as the years go by?
       
      I had the Gastric Bypass in 7/2015. The last couple of times i got the Dumping Syndrome twice last year, and once this year have been the worst. My last one was on Easter Sunday. I felt Fatigue, nauseous, gagging, shortness of breath, laid down holding my tummy, wanting to cry, feeling desperate, it got to a point where i basically was unconscious. Is it normal to fall asleep without no warning and waking up out of nowhere to "wth happened, how long was i out for"? It's gotten scary, and don't know if this is part of the dumping syndrome. I've had more times but not as bad as the last couple of times. 😢
