  1. AA meeting and addicts
    My husband is a longtime AA member, and he is also dual addicted. He introduces himself "my name is Joe and I'm an alcoholic and drug addict." As far as I know, that has worked for him. AA requires...

  3. Help! Court Date Conflicts With New Job
    Thanks for the input. Here's the thing: it's a mail ticket, meaning they sent me a picture of my car that was taken by a camera on the stop arm. (I'm convinced it took the picture after the arm was...

  5. PNAP / drug testing
    No advice, but I'm so sorry that happened to you! I've heard hair testing is the most accurate, but I don't have any data to back that up. I hope it works out for you.

  7. The difference between ADNs and BSNs
    In my ADN program, I learned how to be a nurse. In my BSN program, I wrote papers. The benefit of the BSN for me has been that now I get an interview for pretty much every job I apply for, whereas...

  8. new Ebola patient
    So she didn't go back to her job? Did the hospital have to pay her and Amber a huge sum of money so she doesn't have to work? I'm curious if anyone knows what she's doing now.

  9. My body says "NO MORE NIGHTS"
    You're not insane! I couldn't do nights either, though I tried them three separate times. No matter what I did, I was miserable. And I had the best blackout shades you can get! It's a quality of life...

  10. CDC rec to counsel all males about benefits of circumcision
    Red, I'm sorry, but your Galatians quote is taken quite out of context and can't be used as an anti-circumcision argument. Paul is using circumcision as an example to teach the church members that...

  14. Are handguns allowed at work?
    Yes, exactly. If you have crack cocaine in your purse, that's also none of my business. Or pot, porn magazines, whatever. Your purse, your business. Don't see how I could "notice" a gun in your purse...

  15. Are handguns allowed at work?
    I think it does. I have a concealed handgun license. I have a purse that has a place for my pistol in it. It's really none of your business what's in my purse. I don't show it, take it out, etc....

  16. Choosing a date to die?
    This is exactly why I thought deciding the date ahead of time was a little strange. None of us have a crystal ball we can use to see how we'll be feeling on any given day. I'm glad she has decided to...
