    Doctors are as divided as we are in our opinions.
    We are either growing or dying.

    For sure, doctors sell, push drugs...and MOST of these drugs can and do give side effects.

    I have a small duodenal ulcer. I can't take much of anything. I take 5 mgs of Ambien every night. This helps me sleep through the pain of my achy knees. Definitely not a conventional treatment for the pain but it works for me at least I get a good nights sleep. During the day if it gets to bad I use heat or ice whatever works and feels good.

    Ruth, I do the same thing with Z-Quil. Two pills every night before bed and it helps take the edge off any aches and pains I might have. It also helps slow my mind down a bit, I'm one of those people that solves world peace while lying in bed trying to sleep, lol.

    So true JimW, I have to worry for the whole family. Know one else will do it so it's all up to me. A big responsibility and it keeps me up all night.

    Nothing productive about worry. The only thing we can really change is Ourselves.

    I have concerns, but myself is about all I can change.
