Here, here!!!!
The diesel thing drives me crazy too. There are 6 pumps and only two have diesel but it seems everyone always uses the 2 with diesel and leaves the others open.

I did VAX-D. It fixed me up just fine until a dump truck decided to play chicken with my jeep and I proved that I was VERY chicken and jumped off into a couple of ditches that were about 10 feet deep.

I had almost no pain at all when the VAX therapist was done making me an inch or so taller. Now those dang ditches made me short again.

I'm trying not to go back and get stretched on again, but we'll see after this weekend.

Not sure what VAX-D stands for, but I'm assuming it is spinal decompression of some sort by the way you describe it. I bought an inversion table. It works pretty well. I find when my back is really bothering me, just hanging upside down by my feet for a few min really relieves the pain.

Damn this must be a magnet for back people!

5 in the lower back and three in my upper and neck. The doc doesn't think cutting will do any good anymore. I've had issues with my back most my life though. So I guess I'm a little used to it.

Yeah I have one of those too. Doesn't even compare though. Its fine for stretching out at the end of the day and getting rid of a backache from being on your feet or whatever, but the VAX-D puts specific amounts of positive pressure in areas based on how the therapist sets it up. By the last couple of weeks of it I could actually feel my spine stretching out and moving back into place.

I think way the doctor explained it to me was that it stretches your vertebra apart to a specific degree which creates a vacuum and caused your discs retract back into place. 3 other doctors told me he was a quack and it would never work. But they were all getting insurance money from constant pain management "treatments" and "visits." They also told me id be on disability the rest of my life. So I listened to the "quack" and it worked for me.

Haha I sound like an infomercial now.

went in this afternoon to the chiropractor and got another adjustment, to help straighten out a pinched nerve in my lower back. hopefully i'll be able to go back to work tomorrow.

surgery isn't an option as there would be no improvement even if they did surgery. my only option now is to hope that the doctors can keep my pain at a tolerable level, without resorting to heavy pain killers.

Pet peeve: people who think that restricting law enforcements gun options will somehow accomplish something positive for the 2nd amendment.

Proponents of the 2nd amendment should be in favor of lifting small arms restrictions across the board. Not this piecemeal tit for tat crap that accomplishes nothing but more regulation and restriction of our rights.

Example: Instead of saying "I don't think police should have automatic weapons because I can't have them." You should be saying "I don't think automatic weapons should be restricted."

The LEO who has an automatic weapon had to get training and get papers. The agency had to pay money for it.

You can pay money get training and get papers and have an automatic weapon too. But neither of you should have to.

Neither should have to do anything "special" to carry an automatic weapon at all. It's your right. Thats where the debate should be focused. Not this "they get this but we only get that" crap that comes up on here occasionally.

We can't get automatics made after 1986.
