Hey Guys,

I don't know a thing about magnets. The large one your mother uses in bed, where does it go? I do know of someone who swears by them for her tennis elbow, but that is all of the info I have. Intersting. I wish I had an answer for the doctors. I think next time I'll try anger, as I have plenty of that to go around right now! I think if I let loose with all the repressed anger I have right now I would haul off and slug one of them. But you know what, I bet I would feel better! Have a great weekend everyone. Ginny
