Internet forums. I find that they have the most trustworthy, non-biased and well-informed participants of any possible venue.

So LJW why don't you go to Walmart, Target, Home Depot or some west Lawrence location and ask these questions? Lawrence has many streets last time I looked.

Web md is good, also Mayo Clinic's site gives you more than you ever wanted to know about whatever medication you are taking. It doesn't really matter because whatever my ailment may be I get lots and lots of advise from family members (dare I say oftimes too much?). My mother, two of my sisters, one of my daughters and one of my granddaughters (Class of 2007 YEA) are nurses!!!! Just another area in which I am odd woman out : I never had any desire to do "medical" things . . but managed to find a way to make to eek out a living . . . without panhandling.

eke not eek :) transposing is the bane of my existence!! Although one can often hear shreeking, wailing, gnashing of teeth and see flying objects coming from within my cubicle. Due solely to the fact that I am surrounded by people who have yet to discover that I am a very special and sensitive person.

jumpin_catfish wondered why the LJW doesn't "go to Walmart, Target, Home Depot or some west Lawrence location and ask these questions."

Good point, and to register your disapproval I recommend you boycott posting in or reading these forums until this situation has been corrected!
