B vitamins
Thanks for the info...every little bit helps
Try herbal supplements along with a multivitamin and extra calcium. Ginseng and ginkgo biloba are both good for mental alertness. Also good stretching exercises and the old standby a cup of coffee.
I'm trying . . . husband mentally ill (sm)
and hasn't worked for nearly a year. I was working until I had to go to take care of sick dad for 3 weeks and husband didn't pay the rent. We've been in shelters and such since, now down to our last few days. This isn't the children's fault. They're the only thing I've ever done right in my life. I love them so much. But I'm scared of living on the streets, obviously can't do MT (haven't been able to since Feb since no shelters offer phones or Internet). I was thinking of seeing if they could be placed in foster care and trying to get myself OK in the head enough. what do you think?
Am I mentally challenged?
No, but you may be. Did you even read the post? I worked there for one week, invoiced them and did not get paid. Yikes, try comprehending what is written before attacking.
funny in a mentally challenged how sad
  you he/she board invader.
Does anyone take vitamins or OTC supplements?
I am out and going to the store to get more and wondered if anyone else takes them and if they seem to help or it's a placebo thing going on.  What brands do you trust if you do take them.
oil of olay vitamins
Has anyone tried the Oil of Olay vitamins packs (the ones with the multivitamins)?  I was wondering how the multivitamin tablet compared to regular multivitamins.  If it is comparable I would like to try them since they have the other skin supplements in the packs. 
There are a lot of mentally ill people out there. No joke. Just different degrees.
Seriously, did you ever talk to someone who you just think might be one step out of reality but not enough to be considered full-blown crazy.  Lots of my friends fall into that category.  Sorry but its true.
Andrew Lessman vitamins are the best.

Very nice around there. Good place to chill, hmm, mentally that
Feeling healthy mentally and physically and being grateful for that. nm
Carpal tunnel - know I saw post about vitamins...
or such that helped carpal tunnel without surgery or such.  I am really having problems with my right wrist and it is majorly affecting my production.  I do not want surgery or such, so was going to try vitamins or exercise first, any suggestions?  Thanks. 
Some days I feel so mentally bored I wonder if I am losing my mind. nm
Can a male patient be taking prenatal vitamins??
I've never heard of this before and don't find anything initially on Google.
INMO, pros and cons to both -- easier on the hands but harder for me mentally.
Thanks Alert!

Thanks Alert
If we don't respond to their juvenile posts they'll eventually get board and go away.   
I am not saying this about all doctor's wives, so please no remarks. It has just been in my experience, when a wife either works in the practice or takes care of the money, you will see this happen. I worked for a dentist who was supposed to have this big incentive plan for all of us if we met certain goals. His wife used that/our money to pay payroll taxes.

I agree. Let his wife do the transcription.

Some people swear by vitamins, calcium, low protein diet, Flexeril. (sm)
try a variety of things, cuz it could be so many things.
Troll alert
Schizo Alert! nm
Alert The Media
Do you think you could draw the attention of the media for this cause? Maybe there's a spunky investigative report who would want to get the story out.
Alert and oriented x 3 is
what I have always typed.
Oops....typo alert!
That should have been "to do radiology reports" not "to radiology reports."  My proofreading skills are on standby, I guess.
what R U ? The Troll Alert Police?

My sup wants alert and oriented x3. I do x 3 (with space) s/m
Am I totally wrong on this one. My theory is, we don't do 3x3 cm - We do 3 cm x 3 cm. So I figure we should put spaces? Get it? Opinions?
only 1 alert from MTStars since Sunday??
Is there something wrong with the site or have the storms from Michigan hit the MTstars website?  It seems like I should have more than one alert from this board. Is anybody else having the same trouble? Just wondering and trying to stay dry. (As best I can since Michigan has had 4 days of rain and more forecast). 
Carpet cleaner? Flea spray? Chemicals used inside his car? Restaurant food? New vitamins? Cold
Any suggestions on how to stay awake and alert w/o No-Doz ? - sm
Got totally dumped on tonight with work--- about 120 minutes between 2 jobs---- would like to get at a good portion of it done tonight but tend to start falling asleep typing at 10 or so these days.  Hate pills, especially hate No-Doz, hate coffee too, like capaccino but out right now.......so any quick fixes to staying awake, or should I just work until sleepy and get up after 5 hours of sleep? (i.e. 4 or 5 a.m.).  TIA.
How sad that no one called U. Think you can get news alert emails
Ooops, typo alert...I meant "education"

Whine alert! 8 cents/line is killing me! :(

I have 17 years experience.  I'm an IC, was getting paid 10 and 11 cents a line for the last decade or so.  After that work basically dried up, I started looking for more work.  No work to be had at at 10 cents a line anymore, rarely find anything even at 9 cents. 

Decided to take an 8 cents/line job.  Hey, I was gettin' hungry.  I swear....I type, type, type, type, seems like all day and all night and still not making the money I need to pay my bills and eat! 

I know, I know, people justify 8 cents a line by saying hey if you can do 200 lph, that's $16 an hour.  Yeah, that's great for those who aren't used to making up to $30+ an hour for the past 8 to 10 years!  Man, I'm soooooooo tired of typing, so burned out, just very unhappy. 

I can see now how some people are happy with MT and some people aren't, just depends on what you've been used to compared to what you get now.  Sad. 

I really don't have any other skills to do anything else, and I'm dying here as far as finances, killing my hands and other body parts trying to make money at this 8 cents a line...maybe could've done it 15 years ago when I was younger but just not able to type like a demon day and night anymore.

Let it be known that this is the end of my vent. I have no idea what I'm going to do

He is a healthy-appearing male, awake, alert, and in no apparent distress.

You spending 3K in gasoline to make 4K plus all that time on the road?That doesn't make sense Pat

How nice that the world revolves around what you make and no one else could possibly make more. sm

Marla in So. California pays 11 cpl for a 55 ccl, Oracle pays 9-1/2 cpl, MDI-MD 11 cpl, JLG 10 cpl for gross line, etc.

Of course, these are rates negotiated and paid to qualified MTs.

When I see mistakes I repeatedly make, I make a quickcorrect for it (sm)
for example if I type we plant o instead of "plan to" I have a quick corrct so that if I type plant o, it replaces it with plan to, etc. It is hard - I was with the same company for 8 years. I do not work for anyone with an accuracy requirement though.
When you make the copay, make them give you a sm
receipt for the amount you pay them.  I know they don't like to do this because it takes time, but if you are really stern and insist on a receipt they have to give you one.  Then, the next time you get billed for something you already paid, tell them to look for their copy of the receipt and let THEM do the work. 
Yes, unfortunately you do have to make a pest of yourself to make it work, but.....
as the years went by that is why I stayed away from those type of companies.  BTW, Noni is a fabulous product, I absolutely do not care for the "marketing techniques" they use.  One of the facts of this type of industry is you cannot just recruit to make it, you have to retail.  Ever since I "overhauled" my techniques and system...I never had to ask another person to some on board again.  Well, nuf for now.  Take care and have a blessed week!!
lol cut myself off. Anyway, I'll make close to what I used to make with MQ,
You can't make things worse and could make things better.
The skinny woman may be ill.  The guy might not know the dog is a nuisance.  Who knows?  Maybe it is not as forbidding as it seems and maybe they just need to be asked in a nice way. 
What do you make.........?????
Just once, I would like to see some sympathy/empathy on this board instead of arguing. Where are your feelings??????
Make sure
you get $ offer in writing with Transolutions BEFORE you start. AFTER you start they don't remember what they offered you and at that point you are stuck. Benefits are VERY good!

Otherwise, QA has gotten very difficult!. Their platform is VERY, VERY, VERY old - it stinks! And good luck getting a response to questions from anyone in the office!

You might want to keep looking.
YW :) Yup, they sure can make you want to...

...sometimes, that's for sure.

Hang in there

Make that four.
I've worked for a couple of large nationals. The folks at Amphion are RESPONSIVE and positive. They'll go out of their way to get things done for you (even on a holiday). Very down to earth and appreciative of the people who generate revenue.

And nope, I'm not management, just impressed because I've been management and know that what they're doing works.
You make no
This all began from "no whining" attacking a newbie on here for spelling a word incorrectly. I am sorry, but we all "started" this profession at one time and there is LOTS to be learned, and the English language is ONLY THE BEGINNING! That poor soul that was attacked hasn't returned! Now, you tell me, is that fair?
also,make sure they

know how the other account is counting their "lines" and make them aware that what sounds like a good deal, may, indeed, be costing them more. Good luck to you.


I think I can make your day

I'm presuming that their template is stationery ...

1.  Pull the template to the screen.
2.  Place a left margin where you want it. The little "L" appears on the ruler.
3.  Look at your ruler and you'll see one triangle on top of the other and a box underneath the bottom triangle.
4.  Put your cursor on the box, hold down the left mouse button, and drag it to where your margin is (you said 1.75" or 2").
5.  Release the mouse button.

You should now be able to type away and nothing will write over what's down the left side of the page.

If this doesn't work, then I think a table is in order, and I can show you how to create one that is visible on the screen but invisible when you print.

Make way more now as an IC of course. nm
Hmm...will it make you really

Angry if I let you know that in Canada we spell it COLOUR, GREY, NEIGHBOUR, etc... I really was not saying whether one should spell it a certain way or not. In fact, since I have lived here I do spell it the American way. My observation was simply that there are plenty of countries that spell it cheque. I cannot believe some of the comments that have been made. I don't often post here as people do seem to be rude sometimes, and I am not likely to do so again.

I want to make that much $$$
HOW?????? are you making that much money? I type 80 to 100 wpm (depends on how I'm feeling any given day), and I am only making MAYBE $32 to $34K per year. I want to make the big bucks. I am good at what I do. I have a word Expander and all kinds of shortcuts. My clients love my work. But I want to know how you all are making that kind of money. Please tell me your secrets.
