Bob commented on JamieN's blog post 'Making a difference - what are you doing?'
"Good job! I, too, am nervous about advocacy outside the DOC. I think you made a great choice."

Bob replied to Sportster's discussion 'Juices????'
"I'd just like to note that the difference between the two types is not strictly relevant here. The juice isn't going to cure Type 2, either."

"I'd like to second the comment about your writing lovely prose. We're all of us trying to make it though, and we all have our ways of doing it, and probably all of us have ways of doing it that are less than ideal. I struggle to work…"

Hi! I'm moving up to MO in the next 6 months and need help!
I'm desperate and need to find a new doctor near KC, MO who is good with thryoid and diabetes type 1 also.
I'm a very TOUGH case.

Looking for a doctor who can work with me as an individual, readily prescribes Armour (dissected pig thyroid) doses not only by blood reference ranges but also by symptoms, who can work with minimed insulin pumps, knows how to work with athletes, has an incredible understanding of pituitary, hypothalamus, adrenal, thyroid relationship, can work with natural/integrative/holistic approaches.

if you can point me in a direction it would be a HUGE help.

thank you so much

I noticed you where in the area....

Ahmad and I will be having a get together this Friday night at 6pm we would love if you could join us...

Pitchers Lounge10800 Metcalf Ave, (Overland Park Marriott Hotel), Overland Park, KS
This popular, inexpensive restaurant is a sports lover's heaven. Locals find it a great place to get together, have a drink, enjoy a meal and unwind. Located in the Overland Park Marriott, just 20 minutes from downtown, it is worth a short drive for the sporty atmosphere and good food.
Diners can choose from an array of menu items, including pizza, salads, burgers, ribs, steak sandwiches and grilled chicken sandwiches. For those with an appetite, Key Lime Pie, apple cobbler and sundaes top off the meal.

hope to see you there..

Hey Bob,
I lived on 57th & Michigan Ave. This is in between Prospect and Paseo Blvd. A landmark would be Gates Barbecue on 47th and Paseo.
