    I retire my own, so I am pretty familiar with the issues involved. I have a question: did you test for Cushings Disease? Because unless it is involved, things don't seem to be adding up here to me. ...

    I'm already panicking. I have had Lyme, and it is miserable. This is the last thing we need. You have to be bitten to actually get this, so if your mom takes good preventative clothing/spray...

    One cup of oil has 2000 calories in it, regardless of what kind it is. After that, price, availability and personal preference all factor in. I did the Cocosoya route. Too expensive. I switched to...
