Is it normal to not like one type of meeting in aa (speaker, big book, living sober, 12&12, etc.)?
Yes: You don't have to like everything in aa, just enough to keep you going back, focus on the positive, keep an open mind, and remain willing.

Where would u have child's MRI w/sedation- children's hospital outpatient center or hospital? Imaging director said only difference is no "code team"?
Hard to say: Many facilities are unique in their approach to this issue and follow strict guidelines on who is present for such a study.

Otherwise your GP or whoever ordered the ultrasound will refer you to a surgeon for elective surgery- but it won't happen over the holidays... ...Read more
Is the 12 step program for eating disorders similar to the 12 step program for alcoholics/drug users?

Looking at becoming an cardiac echo tech. Are there many jobs out there? Good schools in socal? Looking to make a decent living. Ekg tech maybe?
Good idea: An echo tech is a good job and can make a decent living. Ekg tech won't do much for you-it's not a sole position; you'd have to do other things and it doesn't pay. Consider school to become a pacemaker tech - they do very well and the demand for trained people is increasing as device use is on the rise. ...Read more
