I wish I could like that more than once.

Your insistence that all other aspects of the pain are irrelevant to my rating of the pain is, therefore, unjustified and, in my opinion, offensive.

Lately, Latinist, one cannot help but notice, everything in your opinion is offensive.

Last Saturday I was put on a new medication. Took it at bedtime and it gave me a migraine in my sleep. The medicine kept me asleep but I could still feel the pain. That was horrible.

I voted two, but I think I did that mostly because it is normally so short. If it was a chronic thing, it would be a lot more than that. I should have thought more before I voted.

SnarlPatrick, you are a nazi apologist piece of shit. You're a coward who hides behind the internet   ....   and I can only imagine it's a good thing your Jewish ancestors are dead so they don't have to watch you grow into the bigoted nazi creep you've become.
