And, as you know, always let your pharmacist know what supplements/vitamins you are taking. We have a few 24hr pharmacies available and I have been known to call in the middle of the night with questions about dosages.

I want to share a response from Dr. Mark Stacy , an expert with our Parkinson's Community. He recently addressed similar types "curing" products.
"I appreciate you allowing me to say for the record: "I believe it is unconscionable for anyone to prey on the desperate hopes of someone with an illness for the purpose of profit." If anyone offers these promises. Ask them how they have proven the product works. If they do not say through 2 double blind placebo controlled trials, and FDA or EMA approval, the product has not been assessed for safety and efficacy by government regulatory agencies."
We all know that crohn's and colitis symptoms, treatments, diets and medications vary drasticially from one member to another. What has worked great for some has had frustrating results for others.
So, bottom line, be cautiously optimistic in any product you may choose to try.
I started "90 Minutes in Heaven" but did not finish. A well meaning friend gave it to me to read after my mom was diagnosed with cancer. Timing was not to good. I did skim and remember thinking how remarkable an experience. I need to pick it up again.
I have a WebMD community for you and your friends to check out -
I love cookbooks and have to resist the urge at the check out line to buy cooking magazines. I am a frustrated chef, no time now and usually meals are planned by the least number of ingredients listed.
I have not read Marlee Matlins book, but have heard how horrible her marriage?/relationship was!
I am so excited to hear about your exam, Congrats! And wish you luck on getting into the nursing program. You will be a wonderful, knowledgeable, caring nurse with great compassion due to your life experiences!
Last weeks topic went over like a lead balloon, so I will try something a little more benign this week.
Years ago I was a bookworm, always had a couple books laying around, finishing one and anxious to start another. I also had multiple magazines, bookmarked to where I had left off reading. I couldn't wait to sit down in the evening or relax on the weekend with a great read. Now, life gets in the way, I still have not cracked open the first of the Stieg Larsson Trilogy, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" I got for Christmas. The last book I read was "The Same Kind of Different as Me" - over the summer! Time to make time to read!
Share with us your favorite - Do you enjoy the great novels from long ago, mystery or romance? Hardback, Paperback or the new E-reads? Would you rather a magazine?
PS - I just realized, I DO read every night, with my six year old, last night it was Graeme Base's "My Grandma Lives in Gooligulch" and "How Do Dinosaurs Day Goodnight" by Jane Yolen.View Thread
