So how long do you fight stuff till you finally give in and go to a Dr.? With aches and pains I usually give it a few months. Is it doesn’t get better I will go see why it hurts. If I need stitches I go get them but I always take them out myself. Sickness I rarely ever go, but I’ve been sick for over a week now and it’s gett very annoying. I may give in and see if there’s something to get me back on my feet. Headaches and coughing won’t go away, I’m over it.

I hated doctors years ago and I still hate them.

Now after saying that if you find a good one they are worth their weight in gold. I fought gout for years but every time that I would have a blood test done the uric acid levels came back normal and they wouldn't do anything about it. Then I went in and saw one doctor and he checked a few other things and put me on a drug that takes care of the uric acid levels. Then a few years ago I had a flare up and he prescribed a drug to knock down the flare up, I now call that drug my wonder drug. I only need to take one or two of the pills and the flare up is gone.

Also when it comes to the sniffles, just go see a Dr. They will get you some antibiotics and send you on your merry way. The problem is sometimes they work and sometimes they don't and you just need to let the sniffles run their course. That along with the fact that Dr's can prescribe lot better drugs than you can purchase over the counter and they work a lot better.

I've been putting off my knee for about 2 years now. I think I'll get it checked out after ski season is over this year.

If you are talking about replacement surgery all I can say is to do it.

My brother in law put it off for years until he had his first one done. Afterwards he wondered why he hadn't done it sooner. The next year he had his other knee done.

Nope, I'm in my 30s and have had both ACLs replaced over 15 years ago from football related nonsense. One of them is giving a bit of trouble, I'm hoping for just a clean out. I'm sure I'll require new knees down the line at some point.

When I changed out my main breaker panel today in my house this is what I found, and the breaker never tripped.
My public service announcement for the day, if you have a Federal Pacific breaker box in any building you own, get it changed out before it starts a fire. It's estimated that the Federal Pacific breakers are responsible for 1,800 house fires every year.

In my book GE breakers are just as bad or worse. When I was doing electrical work we had a electrical fire when a 100 amp breaker didn't trip. We later found all kinds of defective 15 and 20 amp ones.

I've bought square D breaker that were bad off the shelf also. If its man made it will fail, some just at a higher rate than others.

Colorado tags are showing up and yes, they are still the piss green tag.

Actually they look like split green pea soup.
