    Ummm… 250 mg of morphine (example 2) seems to me to be a pretty big dose. did you mean 2.5mg? or 25 mg?
    I don’t think you’d take that much daily.

    thanks for pointing out. it is corrected.

  9. First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question that
    I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Many thanks!

  10. Asking questions are truly fastidious thing if you are not understanding anything
    fully, but this piece of writing gives pleasant understanding yet.
