Can't do much else than rest and take whatever medication the quack has given you. A good opportunity to join in noseying with the rest of us

The fortunate thing about it all there's a lot more on WW and the web so no need to wander into the miscreants place on General.

As a matter of fact I just wandered into my docs office, it's Monday morning blues it appears, 10 patients before me, one is snoring that loud he's nearly lifting the roof off.
I've got some upper jaw infection and that's bad for me, it's stopping me eating, not good for someone who loves food, I may lose some weight and that will been good, 30lbsof ugly fat, just chop my head off

The problem is the older we get the more likely that some health issue will raise its ugly head and a vicious circle of doc visits and all it entails.
When you are younger and fit as a flea, you never visited the doc, I think there should be better heath support for the elderly when it's really needed.
