Hi Chris,

I did not get your email. I have missed a few days at work as my mother in law passed away last week, and we did get new computers at the office so we had some down time so it may have gotten "lost". I am hypoglycemic so when I drink the juice I make sure and have a protien as well. So far I have been able to balance it pretty well. I know what you mean about the doctors. I had my appointment with the pain management doctor today. I guess I had the wrong impression about how they work because I thought they were going to work with me on the emotional level of dealing with the pain as well as the physical. They had told me to expect about a three hour appointment. Well, he made me wait an hour then spent less than fifteen minutes with me. He said that he only really deals with pain from skeletal disorders and referred me back to the gi. I thought they dealt with all sorts of disorders. Anyway, I guess I'm stupid, at least thats how I felt when I left. My work email is and home is The later goes to my husbands office first and then he forwards them home (sometimes he forgets to do this. I guess the high protien/fat diet is the basis behind Atkin's and The Zone diets. Heard they were bad for you, but funny that you can feel better when you eat this way?! Take care, Ginny >>--
