      @Philip, I can see your parts in it but the other cast of characters are not the real thing. Keep up that writing!

    I meant what I said.
    It would be an excellent article in a publication.
    If I ever get back on FB, I may look him up.

    @banasy© of course I believe you. I think that the other parts justify Tori's comment which is indeed applicable. Since you heard it firsthand, of course I will not put it on here.

    @chrissy, this is too much. As of an hour ago I set myself free from my Corporate cage. Is that really you talking about a hip issue?

    @chrissy, that is terrible. Some docs think they are gods and know best. 2 years ago, I had a severe knee injury but my ortho guy suggested I go the route of PT before having surgery. It made all of the difference and so far no surgery and I can do everything I need to do to stay in shape but I am still very careful except for my collection of high heels. I can't ski but that doesn't matter. Just tell your cheerful doc NO and maybe your insurance will cover PT. I never took pain pills even though I was in a lot of pain. Just some aspirin that I get in Mexico.

    The funny thing about Mexican aspirin is blah, blah Blah blah blah, and blah. 🙂 Is there a diff? Aspirin is aspirin, right? (seriously)

      Now you play nice Philip. This aspirin does not contain Dipyrone which was banned in the US. It is just stronger than what we can get in the US and keeps many people from getting addicted to pain meds. You can also cross our border to the north and get the same stuff.
