Re: [IP] travelling

I have a wonderful endo, but sometimes I prefer to ask questions of people
who are actually living with it, you know?  The endo can offer suggestions
based on his education and experience with other patients, but I would
rather hear suggestions from people who have actually been in the same
predicament.  Sometimes I even ask both sides, just to get plenty of info ;)
