  • I know we shrink as we get older, but I don't think it should be happening at 40. I would see another specialist or see a chiropractor (you never know, they may be able to help). I would also ignore anonymous, she is just being petty. She must be perfect and have nothing else to do but bash someone else.

  • Seriously your 40 years old, don't know how to spell, say you are shrinking, and think that Cafemom is going to have the answer since your doctors don't!

  • WTF???? Is you shrinking causing you to be dumb also? Go back and read what you wrote. Not only can you not spell you can't form a correct sentence. Actually I am frustrated! All because of lame people like you. Thanks for the good laugh today! " Someone help me I'm shrinking! "
