Lasik eye surgery
I went to the Lasik vision institute to get a consultation to have my vision corrected, and they said I can't have the surgery because I have lupus. They said it's too risky and that I may not heal correctly. A few of my friends got it done, but they don't have lupus, and now say they're very happy they had the surgery. Great. It's just annoying that we can't do all these things that other people can, now this is just one more. I'm tired of how dry my eyes get with contacts. And glasses are annoying. I can live with it, but it just sucks. I know this is probably not likely, but has anyone had this eye surgery with lupus???

Gentlemen, if a woman wearing only a tank top with D cups is cuddling you, do *you* say "go away"?! Of course, when he wants to snuggle up and I...
Good morning!It's Saturday as I type, but I'm not going to list S stuff. Good grief, that's a long and easy list, and besides, I dobut anyone else thinks it is cool that a slime mold species can grow to mimic the shape of a flower. Or that common slime mold in my area is a kind that sprouts these little seed/fruit/reproductive bodies that look like the tiniest-ever mushrooms. I'm aware that most...
