    I feel you @Snappo.
    One of my old doctors died recently of a similar condition that I have,
    because he couldn't bring himself to look outside of his med-school paradigm.
    He was a decent guy, but when he died he was literally full of crap.

    My suggestion is to look for an "integrative physician".
    ^ Full MD with accu/herbal training as well.

    What a quack! Nothing medically wrong, a psychiatrist is a medical Dr.!? If that's how she worded it, well, she is an idiot and your in much better hands elsewhere. Best wishes everyone, let's get this thread healthy!!!

    Kinda hard here in Bumfuck Florida too. Happy to hear your getting a settlement, always nice to be proven to be in the right after litigation.

    It was great getting that letter from the Board panel of WC Judges. I was supposed to be getting $ every week since last Feb. but the insurance co. appealed the verdict :rolleyes: and then it goes to a board of judges in Albany, and their backlog is LONG. The insurance company can still give me shit going forward, and i'll have to check in once and a while but they owe me a years worth of $$ :D It will be nice to pay back the back taxes to IRS:( and a few friends, but i'll have some "play/VAS $:lol: I really should do something with the Vapes just gathering dust around here ;)

    Not sure. I had a long talk with my doctor today. She told me something that is very true. Only you can control your own happiness and how you react to insensitive people or just in general. She made me look at my xrays and told me I need to accept and take ownership for my illness, especially my left wrist right now. I just need to say I can't do some things and accept that. Don't push myself and don't let anyone tell me that I should.

    This has been quite the "day" (in the sense of 24 hours). @mvapes has had a "rebirth," @Enchantre has become a grandma (CONGRATULATIONS!!!!), and..... my daughter's boyfriend called my husband today to ask for her hand.

    A rebirth, a birth and a wedding. Pretty cool, huh? :D

    I actually slept the whole night and didn't get up once! It was thanks to drugs, but I'll take it because I really needed the sleep. :)

    Was medicating the kitties this morning, and hit a high-temp hit of some very high CBD bho.

    whoa.

    Seriously, the moment I wake up, Ghost kitty (she who pees all over the apartment) is in my face, demanding that mom get up and start vaping NOW. She paws at me until I exhale in her face. Then, she lays next to me for a few more, then she leaves. She has a very decided "taste", too. She really loves the kushy ones, and the purple ones, but the diesel ones she backs away from, and walks off.
    Merri kitty likes it too, but wants less. Just a couple of exhales, then she curls up facing away from me. Occasionally, she will shove her face right up into mine, as soon as I pick up the Nano.

    Anyway, that was at 8am, so I should be okay by the time I start work (10 am).

    Shopping, laundry, mmj farmer's market, then Sunday it's off to meet the new grandbaby, and to celebrate an older grandson's birthday. Too busy by far.
