A friend of mine has chronic migraines. She is getting Botox injections to help deal with them. Apparently it is fantastic for this purpose, but hard to get the insurance company on board with the idea.

Me? I dunno. I've never cared about such stuff. I tell people I'm pushing 50, and they laugh heartily, look at me, see I'm being honest, and say, "wait... what? No shit? Fifty? Wow..."

I think that's more because of my childish nature, rather than boyish good looks. :-P

That's dumb. It's been an FDA-approved protocol for nearly ten years.

Granted, we recently discovered that one of the companies we contract with won't pay for more than one pelvic exam during pregnancy.

"What? You checked her. She was good. Why are you checking her AGAIN? You horrible doctors with your frivolous exams driving up rates for the good citizens of this country..."
