We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
- Should you take an aspirin, or a baby aspirin, daily or every other day to reduce your risk for nasty cardiovascular events (heart attack, stroke)? Check it out. As I once mentioned here in the past, all male docs I know over 40 take a baby aspirin daily.
- Middle-aged women get Frozen Shoulder. Know what it is? It's not an excuse to avoid vacuuming, doing the dishes, or sex. It's a nasty thing.
- Also, I recently heard a talk about ADHD. There is a strong association between ADHD and Social Phobia, which I thought was interesting. However, it's confusing because ADHD is such a confusing pattern of symptoms since it is so commonly combined with other diagnosable problems: bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, depression, conduct disorder, antisocial personality, etc. It's a mess of a diagnosis.
