Haven't had any problems with mine, but still got 14 out of 14 correct, though one was a correct guess.

Proving once again that you are ONE SMART LADY!

Glad you don't have kidney problems, Carol! It is not a fun diagnosis to have.

Thank you, James. No, I know it isn't any fun; I've had kidney stones and that enough for me. My mother was diagnosed with 1 degenerative kidney, so I watched her pain. I've always been concerned that I would inherit a genetic issue, but so far, so good.

I really had no pain at all with my kidney condition. I understand that having kidney stones is worse than having a baby, or so I'v been told!

Caroltoo 2012-03-24 20:51:28 -0500 Report

It is. I had one baby and three stones. Take the baby any day!

My mom would get horrible infections that would spike her fever up into the not-to-lucid range and leave her moaning in bed. We nearly lost her a couple times before the doc tried Furadantin which finally worked for her. It is a scary childhood memory.

I already sent my request to your yahoo inbox! Been waiting for the reply. OH well there's always tomorrow, and if there's no tomorrow for me, then I will have eternity with my bride "Jem" and with Jesus in heaven! Not a bad future IMO!

Thanks for the good thoughts and wishes.

Maybe I'll go check the spam folder — often something gets swept into there

I don't give out my contact info on the discussions as this discussion may be viewed in google, and I don't want more spam than I already get in my yahoo account. I usually get 200+ spam emails a day. I will use the inbox here to tell you my email address.

I got it, Sr Teenager ("Terri"), and looked your sales site over. I noted that it is for fat loss, not specifically for diabetes. (I note you don't mention diabetes in your list of health intersts).

I don't need your products since I had lost 65 lbs since Feb 2011 and have kept it off by following a extremely low carbohydrate, high protein meal plan. I have done it without the use of any diabetes or fat loss meds. I am now at a good weight at which I am comfortable (150 lbs) and if I lose more I may be in trouble if I may get sick (no reserves).

Furthermore I don't join Multi level Marketing plans (or as your website puts it, a "global network marketing organization" —- same difference to me — ) because I have joined 5 of them and have been burned 5 times by up and coming "business opportunties"

Sorry I have no use whatsoever for your product or your business opportunity.

What is more, you seem to be exhibiting tendencies toward spamming this site, which is against the terms of use to which you agreed when joining DC

You are most welcome to stay on the site and get to know us. Just know if you persist in trying to sell your product/Business "opportunity" You will be called on it and you very well get removed from the site altogether.

I pray that doesn't happen.

Since I have been "challenged" by my kidneys for a number of years (since Nov 2006) I had been studying the subject, and so I got 14 of 14 right.
