    Glad to hear that you're all well. I haven't been around this week because I've been on courses and come home with a head full.

    I've been the odd one in my family too. I read books instead of watching TV.

    Forgetful?

    Is that why I'm so forgetful?  Could be part of it, but in my case, the inability to concentrate is the main problem.  Too many things distract me.

    Carl, I probably mentioned this before, but a few years ago, I decided to not be a coward and watch when I was given a shot or blood was drawn.  I noticed that the prick registered in my brain as a little stronger when I watched, but I still watch because it's still only a slight prick.

    I had one nurse that amazed me because her shot didn't even register as a prick.  She said it's because she took her time to find the exact location of the vein so she could push the needle in rapidly.  That made the pain lower or nonexistent.

    On both my colonoscopies, I wanted to watch the monitor.  They let me on the first one, although I didn't see much because I was out most of the time.  The monitor was pointed away from me the second time.  I asked if I could get a video of the procedure, and they said no.  I think they said they didn't make videos.  Perhaps they didn't want complainers or hypochondriacs bugging them about some things they saw.
