    At least that was I was told in chat.

    Sunday I fell down on my back and I am in extreem pain, so I haven't smoked anything.

    But I have tried to answer some posts that I have knowlege of to help members.

    If I have been distant I didn't mean to be.

    I am willing to help with any questions.

    You can always Pm me.

    Didn't notice you being distant but with all the posts everyday...
    Sorry you fell and hurt your back, not trying to joke but you said you haven't been able to smoke anything, and again, sounds like it could be a joke but I noticed in New Mexico you have a really great and rather progressive law in place that could be a great help.

    Not trying to be "preachy" or stir up any kind of debates one way or the other, just thought I would mention it especially considering how impressed I was at how progressive NM was on the issue.

    Hi Ron,

    Sorry to hear about your fall, Get Better Soon...

    I know all about back pain, when you have it nothing else seems to matter... When mine acts up I just pretend I am the Character on the TV Show House and take a handful of Vicodin... Make me a happy camper....LOL

    I will try to remember and give you a call tomorrow...

    Well wasn't suggesting anything illegal, technically in the clinics they are known as bud tenders...anyway, hope you get well and smoke something good soon Ron.
    Maybe you could walk Carol through the operations and goings on with the MES and get her to fire it up?

    Morning Ron,

    Sorry to hear about your back pain, those of us who have experienced it understand, the fact that you are continuing to help out here speaks volumes about your character.

    May I offer a word of advice? Chiropractor, when I was young I was in construction, one false move, picking up a heavy object the wrong way, or falling can put the spinal columne in misalignment. Since you didn't say in your post that the pain was from an old injury, but came after a fall, you might want to look for a reputable one in your area.

    I hope you are feeling better soon and can go back to smoking and sharing those wonderful posts,

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. It seems to be getting worse and may have to go to the chiropracter. Trying to hold off for a lack of insurance and funds.

    Sorry about the back, Ron. I thought you knew that we're too damned old for ice skating. My chiropractor charges me $35.00 a visit. Don't think I'd deal with the pain very long before getting it fixed. Get better soon.

    After my back operation the doctor told me I'd never get out of the wheelchair (ruptured 3 discs stacking pork loin boxes). 2 years later I walked in his office and handed him my cane, which I used after the crutches that I got up on out of the wheelchair. With only a few regressions and a few weeks in the wheelchair now and then, I've been up and ambulatory ever since. Massive arthritic inflammation has been the problem.
    However, the ONLY thing that's gotten me upright and walking is Chiropractic. I've tried all the orthopaedic venues, treatments and therapies, yoga, zen, acupuncture, you name it. Nada. But, a good chiropractor that can realign the spine correctly - priceless! Dr. Chris Michlin, a friend of mine, states it like this (off his latest Facebook contribution): "... I am happily in awe of the body's power to heal. The benefit of chiropractic is the removal of interference between the brain and body. This is TRUE healthcare!"
    Look him up on Facebook, he has a great webpage and is always glad to impart information. http://www.backtohealthtexas.com

    Hope you feel better Ron! Didn't mean to wax prolific on the above, but I'd be flat on my back now if it weren't for chiropractic!
