stafiate is the spanish term for a medicinal herb otherwise known as grandmother's sage. It looks like pot, but it doesn't smell like it. And trust me, the traces of THC are nil, but it works wonders in all kinds of junk. It has a strong musky odor, so drinking it should be done carefully by brewing lightly. This herb allows me to enjoy Chinese food again. Hurrah.
What it also does is repair joints ailing from arthritis. I dunno if I'm old enough to have that. I know I don't have rheumatoid arthritis, but my trigger finger (thumb) aches so bad right at the base where the first knuckle attaches it to my hand. As if that's not bad enough, I'm probably going to see a doctor tomorrow about the tendinitis I'm experiencing on my drawing hand. I filled out the paperwork at work proclaiming that my pain is a result of repetive hand movement in a strainful sort of way. Hopefully they don't shoot down my claim.
I think I'm going to feel like I'm cutting class to go to the nurses office, though my doctor makes for an ugly nurse.
