Re: [IP] Trigger Finger

I have been waiting to write this msg., because I wanted to absolutely
clear about the results I am now posting.  A couple of months back there
were some email exchanges about this "trigger finger" stuff.

I became very depressed because I learned that I had TF for the last 4

kidney nutrition.  This would make sense in light of Diabetic

I am so thrilled to share this information with all of you.  I am at work
right now, and when I get home I will send out a msg. with the product name
that I am using.

Best wishes,


PS: don't go for the chop.
