Re: [IP] They say it comes in 3's

Gary -

You're right.  I've had diabetes - type 1 for 35 years, have glaucoma (not
related to diabetes, just hereditary) and recently found I also have
parkinsons.  My next door neighbor has had rheumatoid arthritis since third
grade - she just turned 50 - and also has tried (and it works!) giving up
the medicine for it.  Write to her, becuase I don't know enough to fill you
in - her address is email @ redacted  She knows LOTS!
Good luck!      Jane
