Re: Does this sound right..?

Re: Using Medical Marijuana

If marijuana were discovered in some rainforest tomorrow, it would be touted as the next wonder drug. But because a bunch of dirty hippies smoke it while dancing to a Fish concert, it's evil. I would say you'd probably be right if it was discovered tomorrow. But, the Phish reference is not the issu...

Re: Don't know what to think.. need advice.

if you cover one eye do you still have the double vision? that was one way of dealing with the double vision for me. if that works at least you'd be able to paint a little until it clears up.

Re: Using Medical Marijuana

i am currently using avonex and the main side effect for me is headaches the day after my shot. mary jane is the only thing that makes me feel better. advil, aleve, or whatever else doesn't even come close to touching those headaches. i too wouldn't be surprised if the studies proved that mj was ben...

Re: MRI Results

No real clue about the copper levels yet. She said they were only slightly low and would be improved by a multivitamin containing copper. My symptoms? Last year I was here discussing heat sensitivity that sent tons of pins and needles shocks down my spine/crawling up back of my head for a good bit....

Re: Anne Romney

My 2 cents-I don't think Anne Romney has any duty or responsibility to advocate or even discuss her MS if she so chooses. It is a private matter and she is not the candidate. I would not discuss my MS if I were her either. I don't do it now. It is simply a part of me (as it is of her). It feels lik...

Re: Anne Romney

I did not read the interview, was there something she said that drew you to the conclusion that she would not be an advocate for people with MS? no, not in that quote, but my comment was just that...a comment. i personally do not hide my MS whatsoever and as a matter of fact i promote it to make pe...

Re: Anne Romney

well...they continue to put their feet in their mouth. will she really advocate for MS...hard to say. "I don't even consider myself wealthy, which is an interesting thing. It can be here today gone tomorrow." During the same interview, speaking about the horseback riding therapy she uses to treat he...
