Thanks for the quick reply.

I can tolerate ibuprofen, but it doesn't do anything. ASA (aspirin in Yankee) doesn't bother me. I prefer not to take any meds I don't need. Is this one of those cases where the med fixes the problem, so it's worth doing? Would ASA be a good idea? I have actually never noticed any benefit from anything I have ever taken for inflammation, except the last time. I got Voltaren, but that's pretty strong stuff. I still have some. It says "Discard 2013/07/03". I wonder if that would be a good idea, maybe ask the pharmacist.

Aspirin is an anti-inflammatory. I'd take it.

Now I'm a very patient person, but the whole receipt checking thing at the BJ's club store (like Sam's club, Costco etc..) just got on my nerves today.

I stopped in an got a few things and checking out was a breeze with self checkout, but the line at the door was at least 20 deep, and with a busy day I just wasn't crazy about standing there.

I usually avoid shopping on weekends because the stores are crazy and only going to get crazier the closer we get to the holidays.

I was really tempted to walk out with my receipt flying like a flag, and challenge them to do anything about it. But I stood there patiently like a good little sheep while, on the busiest day of the week they still had one receipt checker...

Like there is anything there that I could stuff up my shirt and try to get out the door with!

I am telling ya, I have some of the dumbest members of society in my family. Why solve a problem when you can call your mother?

LOL. That is what moms are for, right?

I'll give it a try. It hasn't produced any noticeable anti-inflammatory effect for me in the past.

I spoke with my pharmacist. She said to go ahead and take the Voltaren, but to start with just one a day instead of the three a day on the original prescription instructions. So I took one after supper. ASA hasn't really worked for inflammation for me previously.

Need some advice. I take baked goodies to most of the people in my dialysis group as well as the nurses. The nurses are fine but I have several people who have decided I'm SOFT TOUCH AND i GUESS i Am but why do people ask me for a batch of cookies to take to someones house for Thanksgiving? Or would you type up that recipe for me no please or what ever. I'm beginning to feel like No more for them. Of course I won't but darn it a thank you now and then would be nice.

I know dialysis doesn't make people rude and inconsiderate because I know you. However, some of your fellow patients are jerks.

If someone asks you for cookies they can give as a gift, tell them you're not taking anymore orders right now, the kitchen is closed.

As far as people who don't ask (for a recipe) politely, you can just "forget" to do it.
