Goodness. Vee has 5 posts following mine. Did she not like something I said? She's grey, so I have no idea if she was even commenting on my posts, just surmising.

Re: Risk of Opiod Dependency

As a small P.S. -- my asthma rescue inhaler is a case in point. For the huge majority of asthmatics, albuterol is what they inhale to stop an incipient asthma attack. Inhaled steroids--if used--are normally taken daily and used for chronic long-term [more]

As ip says were all different.

Yes. We differ in the type of pain drug(s) that do and don't work for us. None of the standard drugs works for my husband, as an example. But methadone was extremely helpful for him. We differ in [more]

Re: The erudite shopper

I think Joe may be referring to attempts at recreating the pi symbol in a message here. Not the original picture. (A fruitless pi, as it were.)
