  • My grocery store just took out the pharmacy and replaced it with the Halloween candy

    • Luckily I haven't had funny moments with my coworkers and some of them even agree with me or are just interested. The most vehement opposition actually comes from a college friend turned co-worker who just spouts off empty words like "moderation" and "balanced" in response.

      However, for lunch I usually go to by-the-pound buffet places so I have more control over what I eat, and I have to say that I love it when CW makes people leave egg yolks and chicken skins behind. More for me!

      • Very warm, sunny Autumn day & I'm outside in my garden, working on a stone retaining wall, in cut-offs & a tank top. Obese, chain-smoking neighbor stops by and is horrified that I'm not cloaked in #5000 sunscreen. Really - she's worried about ME getting cancer? Sigh ....

          That really sucks. And $900??? I've never heard of one costing over $600! Hopefully you will get lucky. My parent's insurance covered mine, it was Blue Cross Blue Shield.

              The rest of the ingredient list is pretty horrific. Loaded with sugar and soy--what a genius idea.

                  It sounds pretty iffy to me:

                    The fact that it has been considered unsafe by some FSA's isn't worrying at all...

                      I'm pretty sure that's what my OB's office quoted me after speaking with the insurance company. We have blue cross blue shield as well. Must be a freaky Alabama religious thing? They literally don't cover a single form of birth control.

                        Wow that's odd. I don't understand why they wouldn't cover anything and why it would be so expensive. I'm sorry

                          I saw a similar commercial with an elderly man, where he says that he wasn't eating well and his *nutritionist* daughter recommended drinking Ensure or something similar (can't remember the exact brand) to make up for the nutrients he was missing out on. Now I understand that sometimes, if someone has a compromised ability to eat, a liquid meal replacement might be the only option, but on what planet is a produce with "soy oil" better than getting your nutrients from a real food, like an egg or a piece of chicken?!?!

                            Funny, because I got my Mirena for hormone problems I was having. In order for the insurance to cover it, my doc had to list it as "birth control" even though I wasn't using it for that.

I've had it since the beginning of February. All my friends are jealous I have it, but for some reason none of them will get it. :/
                              I lived with one for two years. I finally gave up. Too painful. I was either cramping or spotting or both half the time. I tried Mirena which has a low dose of progesterone. That made my periods lighter but I kept expelling them. Part of this is likely that my uterus is small, borderline for having an IUD at all. If I could have tolerated the Paraguard that would've been great but now it's back to condoms.

                                Ugh, I could call myself a nutritionist if I really wanted to. Dietician is the term for someone properly qualified to give advice.

                                These substitute things are rubbish.
