      I grew up in iowa. left for grad school at age 22. what's your point? have driven back from WA many times, just me and my little boy (am c7) and encountered deer on numerous times. again, what's your point? I gotta say, patton, your response not only sounded stupid but pissed me off. hey, patton, driven much xc as a c7?? or ab?? that's not why I posted this. also, in outback in aussie. roos there. again, what is your point?

        Okay, I rolled into that one. I was slamming Iowa for its conservative almost backward way of thinking about many things. In particular, I was attacking the idea that if you just believe, have enough faith and try hard enough you can beat a sci.

        I apologize for my skimming the article and not discerning all that I should have. Sincerely

          ok, patton. I apologize. gotta admit, that was basically my response too. but, I don't believe in robbing hope or giving false hope. so, I was sharing a story. again, sorry for jumping on you. I ignored the if you believe shit. lol, who here wouldn't?

          as for iowa....ummm...heh heh, who authored the ADA? and what university did wise go to? ok ok...you get my point.

            No problem! My attitude has probably been slipping a little lately and it never hurts to be kept in check.

            Iowa has some of the best horizons I've ever seen.

                SCI's are still happening everyday to all kinds of people.

                Sorry that pain is keeping you up Cass. You ever tried medical marijuna? I work with some pretty classy people who you would never think of as marijuana smokers but they have some physical issues and a MM card because they take doses of marijuna as a tincture, truffle or muffin.

                  My wife is killing me with the Faith heals stuff, killing me. And FWIW I do pary mediatae and ask for whatever help I might get but get tired of I'm not praying or asking with true faith in my heart.

                  And her approach to Central Pain is after almost 13 years of it figure out how to deal with it and worry about bigger things DOH

                    my pcp asked if I was interested in pill form. I wasn't at the time but am gonna ask more about it. not interested in other forms cause I don't like them (nothing against them, they just didn't physically agree w/me). I hear the pill form has no side effects...anybody know?

                      I hear you. wish I could help. your wife's comment reminds me of a friend who lost the one person he loved most and only a few months later was being asked if he wasn't over it yet. ppl can really be insensitive...ok, betheny mode: assholes. which is what I really meant anyway.

                        Hi Cass,

                        I can't smoke or eat pot either. Especially eat it... I get way too high for way too long. I get paranoid on it. I've taken just two hits (it was the real good stuff I used to grow in my 4x6 closet!) and been frozen at this keyboard for about two hours before I could muster up enough lucidity to make it into my bed without falling. Then get the covers over my head and worry about everything under the sun or moon. And I only smoked it after getting drunk... I would never smoke the stuff straight... it would be much worse. Maybe the weaker pot wouldn't be too bad but I think there are 2 kinds of people... or types of brains. Those who can smoke pot and relax with it and those like me who go bonkers on it. There's no choice in the matter. You can either handle pot or not. Now I rhyme all the time, see what I mean, isn't it keen...

                        Hope you're feeling better soon.

                        Bob.

                          not heard much about side effects from pill but expect there to be more research in the field. Personally I am still involved in the AA community and have seen a few members decline if they started using pot for 'medical' reasons so i have stayed away from it but on the fli[ side see many clients who have real issues replace many of the harmful medications with THC.

                            I've talked to several who have tried both natural stuff and Marinol. To a person they thought the Marinol was stronger and once swallowed you're stuck with the results for quite awhile. With pot, a hit or two wears off fairly quickly. Sorry, no personal experience with medical mary yet.

                              my doc said the pill form doesn't get one high. is this not correct?
