I MISS MY SON! (boohoo)
I have come to discover, through personal experience, that I and all of us really need advocate for insurances to cover TMJ (temporomandibular joint, the jaw-joint) necessary treatment and/or surgeries. That Medicare, Medicaid, the AMA and numerous other insurances/healthcare organizations, etc., consider the TMJ a "dental" rather than "medical" issue is truly absurd and causing thousands to go without treatment. Heck! My jaw-joints hurt and have, to date, been the most debilitating and dysfunction-causing pain I have ever had. Please join me, Folks, in effort to advocate for those suffering from TMJ-Disorder, okay? Thanks.

Oh, .... and I love you all! (yep... even the few that irritate me!).
