  1. We ended up going the non-insurance route for psychiatrist (the dr is private pay only, doesn't take any insurance) to find someone who works well with my kids. Is that a possibility where you are? Have you looked for a psychiatric nurse practitioner? One of my kids found a way to handle auditory stuff - always wearing one earbud at school. Something about the music input canceled out some sensory issues. It was written into the 504. It did have to be on a non-Internet iPod though so there would be no issues with possible cheating on tests. School - same kid as above couldn't manage a full day of ps high school, and ended up taking some classes online with a state-approved provider. Just trying to throw all this out there because your kid and mine sound like they have a lot of similarities.
  2. Both of my parents have a lot of siblings, but neither was among the youngest. My parent whose parent was born in 1890 was the second child of six.
  3. All four of my grandparents lived in the U.S. as adults. Three of them were not born in the U.S. My oldest grandparent was born in 1890.
  4. I was in college. One of my kids likes it so much that we have 2 DVD copies... because the cases have different pictures. So we had to buy both.
  5. I had the "pleasure" of a colonoscopy earlier this year. I mixed the SUPREP with Gatorade. I wish I had mixed it with plain water. The Gatorade intensified the sweetness and saltiness. I managed to keep it down, barely.
  6. Could be you have drier skin. My kids had a cheeping chick toy - it had two metal circles on the bottom, you held it in your palm and it cheeped. I couldn't get it to work because the skin on my palms was too dry. I also have trouble getting store produce bags to open. My sweaty handed kids have no problem opening the bags.
  7. You're not alone. I really enjoyed the first episode and am looking forward to next week.
  8. True. I was thinking more along the lines of prices varying due to HCOL vs LCOL area. But yes, we have experienced the difference in facility quality. In our situation, Medicaid pays and I don't know what the sticker price is.
  9. Can you call a couple of places near where your mom lives, for price quotes?
  10. 2000. My dh got it for me because he didn't want me to be stranded somewhere with a broken down car and a toddler, unable to call for help. He also got an external battery pack for the phone - that was pretty clunky.
  11. Yes. Stonewall's Jerquee. It is not the same texture as beef jerky, but it is chewy and savory and comes in different flavors. Some flavors are GF.
  12. Sorry - my book, which I no longer have, was paper. I didn't know there was a PDF of the book.
  13. I wear the "regular" width in Birkenstocks. The narrow is too narrow for my forefoot. I have not seen knockoff Birks in anything but narrow width. Something to keep in mind if knockoffs don't fit your foot correctly. Try on different models in-store. You may find that some fit better than others due to arch height, etc. For me, Florida and Milano fit great, but the Granada straps are in the wrong place for my foot and are very uncomfortable.
  14. Did the pharmacy run the claim through your medical coverage instead of through your Rx coverage? Our medical coverage will only work for non-doctor-office vaccinations if we go to a specific "minute clinic" but there are none of that particular chain in our state. So we go to a local pharmacy for flu shots and they run it through our Rx coverage instead of through our medical coverage. We've done this for years and Rx coverage has always paid 100%. ETA: if this is what happened, that could explain why medical would have no record of previous vaccinations done at a pharmacy and run through Rx coverage.
