I was going to ask if you'd looked into acupuncture or traditional chinese medicine. It has done WONDERS for our family, (so much so that it's DH's second choice of new career after PA school) for anything we have that's a chronic condition. I know lots of Acupuncture schools have low-cost clinics where they do treatments and prescribe chinese herbs, so that's something to look into as well.natural_mama89 and Justmama

: I'm the one who wants to do bioethics in the family (although right now I think I'd do anyone or anything that could get me out of working in the life insurance industry...). DH is looking at the University of Wisconsin, since it's right down the street, but I don't know if he'll be able to get into that program. Their "successful average GPA" is at least a point higher than his current GPA. He sees an advisor over Thanksgiving, so we'll see.
Speaking of my Poor DH. Guess who managed to put us an extra $800 into debt today? Yep. He got pulled over because our van (his car) has expired plates -- which we totally should have known about, but they expired right around when we discovered little Mr. Surprise Baby was on his way, and I can see how we mighta missed that detail. Anyway, apparently he had gotten pulled over once BEFORE for expired plates, months and months ago. And hadn't paid the ticket, and had his license suspended.
He's DAMN lucky they didn't send him to jail -- I think they would have, but DS was in the car. As it is, he walked out with a ticket for driving without a license, a second ticket for expired plates, AND a ticket for a missing rearview mirror. Plus, we need to pay plate renewal and a license reinstatement fee.
I told him he needed to get a paper route to pay all this crap off, because I was not working the extra hours for it. He's excited about taking DS out on his paper route every morning now... somehow, I don't think this had the deterrent affect I'd hoped for.
