It wasn't easy! I jumped out of the chair really quickly and hooked them under the front of the couch. And get this - it's the third time I have broken them! I am trying to switch to the left foot and prop the right one up for a while. Thanks for encouragement!
Broken toes!
Wow, i have broken my 3 smallest toes on the right foot.  Can you imagine, after 25 years of using the right foot, having to use the left foot until they heal?  What a headache!  I'm sure my line count will plummet!
Just stating what I see, sorry if your toes
stepped on. I guess you must not read the others.
Some people just don't like the truth. A lot of the vents are from "supermoms", so impressed about that, who apparently do not feel like they can do it all, otherwise why be so frustrated?? How do I make time for this, how do I take care of the baby and still work. As far as not knowing what it feels to be cared for, as far as my hubby up is concerned he has me on a pedestal. I worked and kept up as many as 6 other people before and I did not go around crying and whining. I did it because at that time it had to be done. Just part of being a working person, just did it, no crying and no whining, part of life. Now hubby pays for the house, my vehicle and says if I want to can quit working whenever I want. Just try to read the posts, ok?
just something to get your toes tappin'


  Any musicians out there?


I know some lady who woke up w/Bells and

Your other new symptoms sound like maybe (guessing here, I'm not a doctor) - trigeminal neuralgia (?).  I'm not sure - but maybe read up on it and possibly reconsult with your neurologist.  I hope you feel better real soon though!!! 

Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes...

Yes, one of the simpler ones out there w/o a lot of bells&whistles. Easy to use. nm
I like ShortHand. No bells and whistles. Easy. nm
Same here! Love it. No bells or whistles or categories. Easy! nm
Bells palsy and chronic headaches? Does anyone have any good info or help out there? sm

Unfortunately, I have had Bells palsy for the past 8 years. I got it while pregnant and had a pretty severe case. I was extremely sick with that pregnancy and then ended up with the Bells palsy. In fact, my baby quit growing after I got the Bells palsy! Thank God I was about 32 weeks when I got it. Anyway, over time the symptoms have not been as bad. For the most part to look at me you couldnt tell I had the Bells--until I smiled at you. Then, of course, you would know it. I have regained some use of muscles, but not all. I have been able to get my eye to close, but it is not tight, so I still battle with dry eye every night/morning. My forehead has been completely "dead" since this happened. Even electric stim could not move the muscle! Whenever I get a headache it always seems to settle on the dead part of my forehead. My headaches have been increasing lately, and currently I have had a headache for five days! I have tried Advil, Tylenol and Excedrin Migraine with no relief. My neurologist cant see me until January since I havent been to him for years. I can not afford an MRI right now and have no desire to start taking any type of pain med. Does anyone have any experience with Bells or have any ideas. I was wondering if a TENS unit might help. I have been reading about that on the internet. Sorry this is so long. Thank you for any help. As you can imagine, I am having a very hard time working all day at my computer with this!

Poseidon adventure - the old lady going to Israel - ring any bells? (sm)
You must be a real youngster.
put leg straight out. Pull gently on toes. More pain? Prob DVT.
Could be pulled muscle. Don't need cellulitis with DVT, but generally will have some swelling, warmth MAYBE. Try the toe pull thing with the leg stretched out, see if it hurts. If it does, see a doc today, please.
Couldn't you just ask if this is appropriate?
Couldn't have said it better myself. nm
couldn't of said it better myself...nm

Couldn't have said it better, thank you, NM
I couldn't have said it better myself
Nuff said.  You said it all!!!!

I just had one who couldn't
pronounce the simplest word, like catheter. He does cardiac caths all day every day, and can't even pronounce the simplest terms for his specialty! They shouldn't be able to graduate like that.
Saw my name and couldn't help myself here...

I'm among the 200-odd people who visit every day but don't wanna post because, well, it just doesn't seem right.  But, seeing as I saw my name in black and white up on the screen, I just couldn't stop my fingers from typing. 

I wicked miss all the jibber jabber, work related and nonwork related.  I miss the usual faces, the usual arguments, the good times, the bad times, the times when I swore some people were on the rag...

I too got privately disciplined by the former MTStars staff for my potty mouth, got mean e-mails from people who called me a hick, and got awesome e-mails from some great people out there...and I miss it!  All of it!  The good, the bad, and the ugly. 

We had our little domain name "stolen" a few years ago when we didn't renew it in a timely manner, so I kinda know what it's like.  Except ours wasn't a business, just a place where friends and family that we left behind could see what we were up to.  The web host kept all our hard work and wouldn't relinquish it because they claimed it was technically theirs...I'm not 100% sure, as I'm not the technical person of the household, but I know that basically we had to start from scratch.  You kinda feel violated in a weird way. 

I'll keep checking for the "other" MTStars to see if it's back up and running, but for now I'll just hang out here and wait.  My personal stuff is all over cyberspace, so I'm not concerned about identity theft or anything like that.  Who in Sam Hain would want my life anyway?! 

you couldn't pay me enough.
I was offered a job managing an office that sent all the work to the Philippines. I couldn't bring myself to do it. The manager job from the other board (if that's the one you're referring to)sends their work to India. As tough as times are now, I could not bring myself to take jobs away from American MTs even if it meant a decent paying job for me. Still hoping Obama will tax the heck out of these companies that offshore, but not holding my breath.
I couldn't have written it better myself...
Those are exactly my thoughts. Didn't work for Spheris or Medquist, but did work for Heartland before MDI. I am so happy I came to MDI. I am sure they are not perfect, but I think they are better than a lot out there.
I couldn't get it friday either.
Couldn't agree with you more.
Yeah, I complain, too, but basically this is the best job I have ever had and I can't think of too many jobs where I would the freedom that I do now. I am most thankful for this job (even with all the junk that goes with it). Hope everybody has a good day!
You couldn't be more wrong!
Only one poster here, DP, and that's all!!!

I'm not harassing anyone. I'm responding to the posts I'm sick of seeing. They have a right to complain...and so do I. Their complaints are about MQ; mine are about the whiners complaining about MQ. My right as well.

Good for you, if you're happy and a good producer!

I'm not pathetic. I'm tired of hearing it.

What's funny is that you think you know something about ME! You couldn't be more wrong!!!

How funny is that?!! Ask Admin to verify if my IP address is different from "No Whining"!!! ASK!! They'll verify that! I'm NOT the same person at all.

So, in answer to your question, I'll still be DP tomorrow too!! I'll make just as much money, as well.

:) Enjoy yourself!
Couldn't agree with you more!
I agree with you 100% - Well put!
I couldn't stand it with a

I had a good deal too, free rent, worked at home, vacations to where ever and whenever I wanted, limos and NYC every weekend, could pack up and go back to work at my mom's for 1 or 2 months at a time for my "family" fix.  I just couldn't keep doing it.  I packed up, came home and last week my GD turned as she walked from my front door to look at me and say, "Bye, Nammy!  I Love You!"  I got a better deal after all

Oh, I believe you. I just couldn't find it. sm
And I didn't want to believe it. Thank you.
I couldn't agree with you more!!! (sm)
We better bust our butts while we can to prove ourselves against the looming competition, if you know what I mean.
It is, but it couldn't happen to a better guy

I also think there are disgruntled MTs who couldn't cut it,
or didn't live up to their end of the bargain.  It goes both ways.
Well said! I couldn't agree more! (nm)
Couldn't Agree More
I couldn't agree with you more. I posted above stating my views.
I couldn't imagine.....
...holding the baby while typing. I have 15-month-old twins and THANKFULLY neither gave me that problem. I think if they had I probably would have tried every different toy bar for the bouncy seat or swing until something worked. Something comfy for her to lay against maybe. If nothing works and you can't manage typing and holding her then adjusting your schedule for when your husband is there would be my only thought. Good luck. Mine are giving me CLIMBING issues at the moment, oh brother!!!!!
yeah, you GOT it - I couldn't believe she was..

in all caps.....

Doxielady, you need to get a life!  Docs don't think they are kings - that would be GWB and GHB....*lol*

I couldn't agree with you more.

I couldn't disagree more..sm
I've been doing this for 17 years, and I shouldn't have to have a knack for understanding what someone is trying to say just because they are too self-centered to realize they are accomplishing nothing in terms of saving time by talking so poorly and so fast that most people can't even understand what they are trying to say. The whole point of talking is to express thought and communicate. If you aren't going to take the time or make the effort to be understandable, what's the point in even opening your mouth? These doctors have no business sacrificing the efficacy of communication while dictating highly technical medical and legal documents that affect the health and welfare of the patient population. And speaking of rendering excellent care, providing accurate and intelligible documentation of the care that has been provided is part of that so-called excellence. It's part of the service patients are paying for and wouldn't be getting if it were simply left up to these inconsiderate physicians. If I could, I'd slap every one of them up side the head.
No offense, but couldn't you have used
of your own? You could get one from another company, I'm sure, but would it reflect the information you need to know?

For example, if you need orthopedic MTs versus ophthalmologic MTs, asking which is correct in Tenon versus tenon or sub-Tenon verus subtenon would be important and might not be on a test you pull from someone else.

I could be wrong, but I'm wondering if you haven't had to do much testing personally that you wouldn't know what you would want in your own test??
Couldn't agree with you more.

okay, I tried but I couldn't help myself, I have to respond
let me get this straight - you spent 5 years in college, are an engineer and because you can type fast you want to get into a field where you might make 20,000 the first year - but it is rather laughable that you think typing is all that is required here - when most of us who have been doing this for 20-30 years are doing good to make 30-40,000 a year and are afraid that we won't be needed much longer because of computer (as an engineer you surely are familiar with them) technologies such as speech recognition and offshoring to India where the work is cheaper.  Now after you finish training - which you will need - a lot of us will already be out of jobs - do you really think this is a viable option for you?
Along the same lines, couldn't you just tell the dr. you
I couldn't find it either at first.
Someone else gave me the link. Good luck!
I couldn't be happier for ya.

It couldn't hurt
I get paid by the page. I actually can make more money per hour doing tapes than I can as an MT, it's just unreliable. I've gone almost a month without tapes a few times.
I couldn't see it in the book....
...the instruction book, itself,I find is not user friendly, but I have using their product for 3 weeks now, and I have to say it is slowly becoming my favorite Expander program.... it just was not an immediate favorite... (What page in manual for info on bold?).. Thanks.
Agree 100% and couldn't have said it any better myself.

THANK YOU!!! Couldn't have defended myself better!
And yes I know it's sad I feel I need to...ahhahah
still couldn't find this, Either having
another of my senior moments, or just too late for me to concentrate. Can't find anything that says word count...uhggggg
wow couldn't you call the police?
there are restrictions all over regarding barking dogs in our state and it doesn't mean just at night. of course i wouldn't want to be enemies with a neighbor who lives that close to me and is ignorant enough to leave the dog barking anyway.  that is so awful.
You also couldn't afford a breakdown - sm plz
I am a walking burnout factory...  it is so necessary to not be the "yes girl"... take a break at least ONE holiday, ONE weekend and spend it on YOU...  You cannot afford a mental meltdown, which will happen at this rate.  Take care of you, and the job will continue to flow... everyone needs a break.... as short as it may be, it can still be refreshing if you use a day wisely... just my opinion
