CIP patients provide key to possible pain management
« on: May 26, 2015, 02:52:01 PM »
Before this article decides to change its funny mistake, let me quote the first paragraph:

Quote
People with a rare inherited condition known as “congenial insensitivity to pain” (CIP), which makes it impossible for them to feel pain, may hold the answer to providing pain relief for patients suffering with chronic pain.


CIP stands for "congenital insensitivity to pain" not "congenial".  It may be congenial for some who hope, but certainly not "congenial" for those who are born with it.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I don't get it.  Why are you making fun of sick people?
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

I know, I'm kidding.  Geez, Mina, we actually know each other in real life, you should know me better by now.  :P

My bad...thought it was a misunderstanding

Adam Lanza reportedly had this condition.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.
