Sending hugs for you and Joe. I hope the X-ray goes really, really, really smoothly. Would it help to get Joe some ice cream or something else special after?


Getting x-rays is an annoying part of our whacky hypermobile lifestyle. I don't like them, either. They generally end up being pointless wastes of time. And maybe that will actually cheer Joe up a bit--nothing is likely to be revealed, and he'll likely heal up as much as he's going to heal without any medical intervention at all.

Aww, poor Joe! I can picture this scenario all too clearly and I really felt for him - and you, mum - reading this!

I don't blame him for being 'anxious'! Geez, I was 'anxious' about seeing the doc for my first nerve block, and second, and neither of them happened yet, lol. Seriously, I'm several times his age and I'M nervous and anxious, ok?!

Let's hope it's something minor, which I'm off to read about now. :)

PS Good job, mum, for staying calm as possible and talking him out of the bathroom. Sure, we can use the little pen refill trick, but it's better if they can come out on their own, yes?


I have advanced emphysema and the ad for Hysmeton really gave me a temporary lift. I discussed it with my wife and she said go ahead if I wanted to but not to fall for any of those scams. So, I checked it further and ran across your site. Thank God for that decision. You just saved me a few bucks but a lot of unnecessary hoping for a better pair of lungs. Emphysema is a slow death sentence and one must simply take the Advair and wait. Marvin Ruth
