I third that motion. Then, in July, I'm coming up there to force you to have lunch with me before I smack you silly.

Well, the only therapy for this condition is time. Things are getting better. I can turn doornobs! I got up the nerve to shave lefthanded (first shave in a week!). I'm taking my vitamins every day!

Ted, maybe we oughtta start thinking about lunch. What kinda restaurants do you like/dislike? Stephen and I know what's where 'round here. Got a pref?

I mean of course you are right about the symptoms, but the cause deserves more expert attention. Something caused your nerve to be damaged. Hopefully it is healing now.

In diabetes, somthing I know about, one of the complications of uncontrolled high blood sugar is people start loosing feeling in their extremities (e.g. fingers and toes), because the capillaries get leaky, and blood is caustic to nerves. Though a nerve can heal to some extent, once a nerve goes, it is gone, and subsequent wounds and infections (because you don't feel them) are responsible for a third to half of all amputations.

So take care of those nerves.
