  • swimming, anyone?

    Hi All!
    Has anyone tried swimming? Does the chlorine bother you?
    Were going on a vacation to Las Vegas in a few months, and I was just curious about the chlorine/other chemicals in the pools....

    Thank you!

      I still go swimming, I seem to do ok with it. I know some people say the chlorine bothers them and others say it doesn't, so I guess you'll have to test it out for yourself. I really hope it doesn't, for your sake, who wants to miss out on relaxing in the pool on vacation right?? Good luck ,and enjoy.


      I'm 47 years old, married 27 years. I have two wonderful boys and two wonderful grandchildren. I was diagnosed in 1994. Life has certainly thrown me many many surprises, all of which I'm trying to stay positive and hopeful, and I try to think about my blessings not my misfortunes, when possible. Stay Strong!

        I go swimmining at the YMCA which they do use chlorine. The chlorine itself don't seem to bother me. Hope it don't bother you.

          I also enjoy the pool in the summer. I usually only stay in for a short period, and when we go to Vegas in the summer, they have mister's over chairs, so you really don't get hot. Another thing I do, just sit by the pool with my legs in there. Have fun.

            I think I've posted this in three different threads, at various times, now. LOL. OK, trust me, I am an expert on this: Coat your entire crotch with petroleum jelly. Nothing can penetrate that stuff; we've started to nickname it the "Vagina Goggle." I'm serious, this really works.
            Je vous souhaite de la joie, de la bonne santée, et tout ce qu'il y a de bon dans la vie.
            Wishing you happiness and good health, and all the best out of life.

            Peace, Carolyn
