O.K. Ladies, especially Ginny and Chris,
What's the skinny on MAGNETS. There's a lot of hoopala concerning their
TREMENDOUS HEALING effects for chronic pain sufferers. My mother bought
a large (size???) one for her bed for sleeping. She has used it for
three nights in a row, and swears they are the first good nights rest
she's had in over a year. She says they relieved the leg pain which has
been keeping her up all night. Last night, however, she didn't use it,
and she is complaining her back AND leg hurt her today. I am thinking
of getting her the "set" of five smaller/wearable ones for $33.00 from
Marshall's for her B-day. They are suggest for use by artheritis
sufferers. Supposedly the help promote blood circulation. Maybe they's
help us?? I'd like to 'test drive' my mother's for 24 hours.
Also, I know what Ginny means about speaking calmly to doctors and they
think you are NOT in pain, but that if you fall apart in frustration and
anger, (from NOT BEING listened to or taken seriously!!), they label you
as suffering from depression. Wouldn't you like to give them a good
swit smack on their smug, condescending faces!!! I'll bet that would
give them a bit of a shock.
