    Aren't you from Orange? My grandparents lived in Port Neches and there was always a smell from the plants between there and Port Arthur. My grandmother died of leukemia when she was only 62.

    Bengal if you don't see any lesion or callus there's a good chance it's plantar fasciitis. Heel hurts like hell when you first get out of bed or extended period of rest.

    It's a little bump on the front of the bottom of the foot. My doctor said it was a platar something or other and told me a dermatologist would burn it off.

    Nothing today. I'm a mom, occasional business insultant, and that's it. My mom was an RN. She worked in just about every area of the local hospital. When she was a burn unit nurse and I was in the 10-13 year age range, she brought us there to visit with patients because burns are horrific and sometimes the family and friends didn't visit because it was hard for them to deal with. My first job was at that hospital in the admissions department and then some period of time as a unit secretary in the ER. I've just always been fascinated and interested in medicine. Every year for my birthday, my mom would give me an updated version of the PDR. When I picked a pediatrician for my own kids, I selected one who was a specialist in virology and immunization. If I'd been smarter, I'd be doing my dream job which is what you are doing. Blessings to you.

    The thing that interests me these days is osteopathy. I don't know about other parts of the country but in CA, a DO is fairly common at clinics, ER's, and even medical offices since insurance companies are more amenable to their services. Root causes and the relationship between the body core and how it relates to overall health is fascinating to me.

    For sure lifestyle choices are hard to give up, easy to ignore, and yet have a significant impact. My dad was a healthy guy. He didn't smoke, rarely drank, rode his bike at the beach every day, golfed once a week, no history of cancer. But he was a dentist and he died from a glioblastoma. He worked a lot with mercury. I know 4 dentists from his era who have died from glioblastoma. The government says there is no connection. I still wonder.

    My mom was born in Beaumont. That little pocket of east Texas should secede and join Louisiana. Lots of Cajuns in the area. When a lot of my transparent friends came over the would speak French. As a little kid I hated it nexus I could've understand what they were talking about.

    My grandmother and grandpa lived in Beaumont. Apparently after the war that area of Beaumont just exploded with jobs, lots of Louisianans made their way there.
