Now that i have your attention,lol, ....I went to the Dr. today to get my pain meds filled, and after checking my weight (which thanks to new med is slowly going down along with my IQ)--the nurse asked me if I wanted to check my height?...I thought...sure...why not...it's been awhile...should be the same old 5'8"...

I am now 5'7"....I have shrunk an inch in the past year!...no wonder i feel my spine compressing when i stand!..it is!

Are others out there shrinking?
Will we be Hobbits?
some new spiney based creature?
....ok...that may be a med based tangent...lol, but you get the gist of it... :/ @) :( :S
