Re: Aging - it's not for fraidy cats

My mother had a weird drug reaction that sounds similar. Her doctors wanted to move her from Lorazepam to Prozac because the state regulations have changed making it more inconvenient for THEM. Anyway, she had to take both for a while because they aren't a 1:1 replacement. After 2+ months on the Pro...

Looks like MeTV has select episodes from Mary Tyler Moore and Rhoda shows airing Sunday afternoon. I *think* it said beginning at 5PM Eastern, but not clear - check your local listings.

Re: Hijack this thread

That kind of pain is the worst pain in the world. I had a similar thing about 20 years ago and I still shudder to think about it. I read once that a guy tried to shoot out his bad tooth once, and I almost understand it.

It's awful that they can't give you anything for the pain. That's fucked up.

Was the complaint signed with the illegible signature of John Vidurek?

And was there a wax seal on it?

I bet HRC is sweating bullets.
Uh... I believe it was NOTARIZED.

Green Acres. It's on Prime and it's adorable.
My mother is watching it on MeTV; I noticed it was on her DVR and asked her about it. She said "I love it, it's so funny!" I remember thinking it was stupid when I was a sullen teenager; maybe I'll check it out again!

I'm not sure what feature you're talking about specifically, but "Unread posts" is an option under the "Quick Links" on the upper left part of each forum page. I have this bookmarked.
