Wednesday, my dentist filled a cavity in one of my bottom wisdom teeth, and then told me to get the other bottom wisdom tooth removed, instead of having him fill the cavity. The next day, I lost my job. Insurance runs out on the 29th, and the only appointment for an extraction I could get is the day before a second interview for a new job. Should I try to reschedule the extraction? [more inside]
I'd like to spend a day on the LES eating all the foods I grew up with (so this means pistrami, bialis. lox, halvah, babkah, etc.). In order to avoid getting sick, I'm going to need to space out my meals/snacks. Could anyone recommend interesting places to visit/things to see while I'm digesting? I have pretty eclectic tastes.
This has been driving me crazy. I have a strong memory of a comic strip, I think it was a The Far Side by Gary Larson. I can't remember the setup or punchline, but there was a picture of a suitcase shaped like a dog, with a handle on top of the dog's back as if you could put a dog inside and it would fit exactly. (The dog would probably suffocate unfortunately, but hey it's a cartoon) [more inside]
The only Broadway musical I can actually, whole-heartedly enjoy is West Side Story. Am I the only one of my breed on this? Why might this be? [more inside]
Please suggest a lunch spot on the upper east side, as close to 74th and Lexington as possible; I need to suggest a place to meet and I am blanking on suitable places within a couple of blocks of that intersection. [more inside]
From a medical/science standpoint, what are the limiting factors that make it difficult to produce pharmaceutical drugs that do not have negative side effects?
YANMD, but how paranoid am I being? Also some general birth control questions and angst. [more inside]
After 3 weeks on 75 mg of zoloft (previously was on 50 mg) the side effects are helping with my intense anxiety. In fact, I'm pretty apathetic. I'm also having difficulty sleeping and then difficulty waking up, to the point that I slept well into the afternoon today (very unusual for me). I find myself clenching my jaw and rather jittery. And I feel strangely separated from reality, as if I'm in a fog. As hard as it is to fall asleep I feel like I'm fighting sleep all day. Has anyone experienced these symptoms but stayed on the medication and found that they were able to stabilize?
