When I see a photo of myself and wonder why my Mom is there. When my son's girlfriend has never seen Star Wars. When I order a size 20 dress. When I refuse to go somewhere without indoor plumbing. When I stopped dying my hair purple because it didn't cover the gray. When "granny panties" just became panties.

Already do... at almost 24. lol.

Knees are bad, lower back is bad. Being competitive in the horse world for about 20 years and work has just worn me down.

Now with it getting cold here, I've truly noticed how old I really feel! lol!

Seriously. I am such a pansy in the cold. Layers on layers. And HOT showers before bed.

My back has hurt since my teens, but mostly because of my scoliosis. I went in a few mos. ago and they did X-rays and said I have arthritis on some of my vertebrae and probably working on a slipped disc.
My back & neck will randomly go into spasm and I have to take muscle relaxants for it.

Personally, I can't wait to go gray--I won't have to bleach my hair before putting the purple color on.

I can't figure it out--my mom had salt-and-pepper hair by age 40, and I only have a few here and there. My cousin (my mother's twin's daughter, so genetically my half-sister) had salt-and-pepper by her 30's.

Where's my gray hairs? Dangit, I've earned 'em!

Pfizer (2009): Off-label promotion of COX-2 drugs including Bextra, Geodon, Lyrica and Zyvox, with "the intent to defraud or mislead" cost the pharma giant a loss of 90 percent of its 2008 income. The fine: $2.3 billion (then the largest fine of its kind).

Celebrex Lawsuit: Celebrex Class Action, Celebrex Recall Information

But, I am sure Pfizer will prevail, if this is pulled from the market for humans, it will likely make it's way into the veternary practices, just like Rimadyl

You should really look into natural anti-inflammatories, like wobenzyme, curcumin, devils claw

Try "Fast Joint Care +" it works AMAZING...manufactured by Genuine Health (Canada), but can get through drugs.com (or other)

Genuine Health

They also have an arthritis one - same as noted but with an added couple ingr.
Thanks for the info, this is exactly the reason I'm not on any medications now and one reason I want to find a new doctor... Mine just gives me any old thing but never discusses the risks or long term health effects. He told me my insurance might not cover it but didn't say why.

But I will look into the things that you mentioned!
