Just had all of mine yanked in September.  I've got temps but they are pretty much worthless.  Still living on Boost, creamy peanut butter by the spoonful, instant oatmeal, an occasional batch of instant mashed tater's and vito's.  And caffeine and nicotine, lots of that.  I have found that I can have Milky Way's now without any pain !  I can sorta squish them and melt them in my mouth and get them down. No more nuts.  I guess that I am almost now a vegan without trying.  I'd be gluten free if not for the oatmeal.  I'm not really missing solid food that much, actually.  Lost 40 lbs since.  I've bottomed out and stabilized at 175 lbs which is what I weighed in HS.  My back hurts less and my sciatica is being nice to me.  Have more energy than I've had in years. The only solid food I was able to manage with my temps is very well done broccoli, once.  Isn't worth it yet.

Boost is really easy to do. and the dishes are reeeaally easy to do.  The permanents are still six or nine months out when my mouth is fully healed.  That appears to be the key to getting good fitting dentures is the patience to wait.  And I'm $4500 lighter, up front in advance.  No dental with Medicare.  Maybe medi-cal ain't so bad when you look at how much you're not paying.

But more than anything the pain from sugar, hot and cold and sucking air the wrong way is now over.  And all of the poison my teeth were dumping into my system has ended.

Feel better, friendo.  It gets better !  {#Hug}

That and the last physical daily reminder of how bad the chemo tore up my body is gone after nearly 12 years of pain and embarrassment.

...you start fearing to re-post things, unknowingly. 

Damn... if I only could remember... 

...given the 5-minute attention span, the new media are granting these days, this forum doesn't exactly improve the situation through a more detailed categorization and overview of topics.

Instead, 'recent topics' are to choose from, mainly on the left side of the screen, and postings, older than 5 days or so disappear rapidly...  with no underlying categories visible, in general. 

Older boards (such as php-bulletin) could be more helpful in this regard. But I'm not here to criticize. Just observing, and thankfully accepting...

Question:   Do you consider yourself to be a person of low socio-economic status?  And if not, why do you channel trash all the time?  
 
I must have hit some hornets' nests inside of you. Sorry for that, it was purely unintentional. Would you care to graciously point out to me, what exactly got you triggered? 
Should you care to oblige (which I doubt), I'd be open to exchanging personal stuff with you. 

Cheers.
