Thanks. Our insurance changed and is worse and very complicate with tons of paperwork, so people are avoiding going to the doctor. People with kids have been forced to learn the new system.
When I wake up in the morning, I have fingers (especially my right thumb) I can barely move, and the pain is incredible. My knuckles are swollen. this is just in the last few months.
Dr Pelly checking in here.

Bite the bullet. See the doctor. Ask for blood work. How do your other joints feel?

FWIW it doesn't sound like MS, but what do I know?

29 here. Seems nice out by comparison! We're due for snow on Thursday, might be our last snow of the season.

This is a random observation/inquiry.

I have been coming to the Amby sites and Topix for about 5+ years. I am beginning to think of my screen name, Pelly as haviung an elemnet of real-ness and authenticity. I am somewaht surprised at that.

Like jmw we can say things here but not too much. Argue positions, gripe or talk or praise SO's, talk about intimate stuff that probably doesn't come up at home.

Pellen/Pelly is taking on a life of her own. If someone called me by Pelly IRL, I am pretty sure I would answer.

Anyone else notice this?

I watched an episode of Snooki & Jwoww earlier and thought of Jwoww as my alter-ego. Does that answer your question?

Maybe? Topix is the only one I use Matilda for. I do actually respond to my gmail handle, I think my friends came up with it.

I haven't seen a ton of her show, but what I have seen has me cracking up.

I don't remember now... She might've been.

It might be the wine talking, but I thought Snooki & Gianni's take on being new parents was kind of sweet.

I've seen Snookie talk about her kid, and maybe it's because she's not doped or drunk, but she seems...like not a complete trainwreck. Like there's hope for that child after all.

Since my kids basically picked my name, I totally identify with it.

And if you'll recall, you did answer to PEllen when we met for lunch.
