My wife was diagnosed a couple of years ago. What Ace said is mostly accurate. Everyone presents differently, different severity, and progression. In my wife's case, she has frequent pain in her hands. Periodically, she complains of pain in her chest like a squeezing sensation. She does not take...

The firefighter didn't lie? Having your hand on your gun at the ready position is not even close to "about to pull the trigger". The firefighter claims he asked if his kids could put their hands down and tell them it's ok. Never happened. The cop tells the children it's alright...twice. a responsibl...

I did my PhD within a Health Science Center (only graduate and professional degrees) and never had to teach undergrad labs or lectures. My stipend was justified because I taught pharmaceutical compounding lab, which was a necessary and beneficial skill for me. I was on an industrial track. My pos...

My best advice to someone seeking a PhD in one of the basic sciences (maybe except physics, sorry, not being a dick) would be to pursue one associated with a professional degree program. For example, pathophysiology, biochemistry, cellular/molecular genetics obtained in the respective department at...

Actually, based on personal experience, a physician at a religious-affiliated hospital can tell you that your unborn child has a lethal condition, will not survive outside the womb, continuing the pregnancy is a risk to your wife due to complications, and should be terminated...now please go to anot...

Dr. / patient confidentiality doesn't seem like a reasonable argument. We still have laws against physician-assisted suicide, which is a private decision. I guess what I'm getting is the inconsistency of laws and how they are applied. For example, California law states - [quote]187. (a) Murder i...

So they actually did argue on the terms of a "constitutional right to terminate a pregnancy"? So what article or amendment is this right being associated? Again, not being an ass. I'm just trying to rationalize a ruling such as this with the number of fetal homicide laws that exist in nearly 40 s...

I remember the argument about admitting rights, but the article specifically states [quote]federal appeals court ruled Thursday that the state may enforce a law that requires those facilities to be built to the same standards as hospitals.[/quote]. Is this another provision of the same law? ...

Right. My title says "tosses injunction" just like the article. Are you implying nothing can be done to overturn or fight their lifting of the injunction? I honestly don't know...chemist not attorney....

Almost 30 years ago...when it was ok to make fun of people. There was a hefty girl everyone called Jabba (Star Wars was big). Friend was singing "a country boy can survive". She told him to stop.

Tylenol and heavy drinking is a bad idea. Water is key, but when you dri k it is more important. Alcohol inhibits antidiuretic hormone (once you break the seal you can't stop). It takes approximately 5 hours after your last drink to stop inhibiting adh. If you have discipline, set your alarm for 5 h...

Not in every situation, especially if the individual is high on coke, meth, etc. Do you recall this story from a year ago? The man was shot 5 times in the face (head) and neck before retreating. BTW, he lived.
