    When I can't get in with my doctor I go to urgent care or a clinic. It's the same price as what your insurance asks for at a doctors office. I wouldn't wait on it.

    I sympathize with you...Too much sodium can really mess you up. Check your bread and everything you buy from the store. My dad really reacted to sodium and it caused him much distress. I discovered his bread that he had 3x's a day and his low sodium turkey sandwich meat was one of the big causes of sodium.

Lots of luck with the doctor maybe he can find another reason other than sodium. Two months is a long time to wait. Does your doctor have a nurse practioner in his office?

Lots of luck and I am sure everything will work out soon...

well, michelle here...36 yrs old and stressing on a real high level today. my daughter elizabeth is going to church camp tomorrow for a week, and i have been running around buying flip flops, bug spray, etc....i wish she would have packed when i suggested her doing it a week ago...14 year olds are difficult sometimes...i am struggling with eating at night due to stress. i think about way too many things late at night and it keeps me awake. insomnia is no fun friend to me. wish i could stop eating only at night...no hunger in the morning or afternoon...i finally get hungry around four or five in the afternoon, and i don't eat much....how do i get myself out of this rut? oh, well...life will go on, hope liz has fun at camp...anything to get out of the house in summer, eh? i remember being her age...it is a great time in life. that is all for now.....wishes of good health and peace of mind to all.... dyciane~~~6/10/07 5:55pm central
