    Just wondered if anyone ever had a shot of that before. I

    went to the rheumy today because of my shoulder pain

    becoming intolerable and they gave me a shot of that and

    said it should take care of the other spots too. He also

    told me to stop taking the Elavil and gave me Flexeril at

    night. Hopefully they can get my whipped back into shape (somewhat at least).

    Just wondered if the depo medrol was helpful for anyone. He

    he said if it worked ok they'd try and give it to me a couple times a year.

    SO far it seems to have helped some. I can pick up my kids

    a little easier and it didn't hurt to turn the wheel when

    I drove my daughter to dance class and get my check from

    work. Now I have half a flexeril in me and it seems to

    work faster than the elavil to get me sleepy, and that's

    a good thing!

    Ok, I'm clueless what this porch thing is about!

    I could throw up though. I took Chem 100 online and got a

    C+ in it, which is OUTSTANDING for an online class like

    that one. I got the C I needed for the pre req for nursing

    and thought I would never have to think about that clasa

    again.
    Well NOW, they are changing the rules to get into the

    program you have to have a B- to get into the RN program.

    Chances are very high that I will have to take that god

    awful class again! I could just scream. It seems like I'm never going to get into that dad gum program:(

    So far so good! I am feeling a lot better than I have in

    the last few months. Someone could actually hug me now and

    I wont' flinch! A co worker came up and hugged me a couple

    days ago and I almost cried, it hurt so bad. He said if I

    did well with it he'd give me a couple shots a year.

    Right now I'd say that sounds like a good plan!
