I have not, but thank-you for the suggestion. There’s a website (geez, EVERYTHING is on the internet) called Weedmaps http://www.weedmaps.com that not only directs a person to marijuana dispensaries and brands, but also to doctors in Colorado. If you knew my background, you would laugh heartily at me even considering this.
While I tried to keep my posts in this thread applicable for general ApoE4 consumption, my personal struggle is a fine tightrope: trying to control my pain enough to keep active for sanity purposes and in order to reap the benefits of exercise for general health/ApoE4 issues i.e. increase BDNF, cardiovascular health, regulating AMPK through Muscle-derived IL-6, yada, yada, yada, without screwing up the strategies I’ve adopted for my ApoE4 status. We all face unique challenges.
We have a rolfer in the suburb where we live and Boulder isn’t too far away, will investigate. Again, thank-you

No injury, a few years ago I developed this painful bump on the outboard side of my foot below my little toe during a ski season when I was blissfully skiing more than I ever have before. It was diagnosed as a bunionette (bunionettes develop on the outside of the foot, bunions develop under the big toe). I had a surgery with “a high success rate” (ha!) and two subsequent corrective foot surgeries. I was also just diagnosed with arthritis in both hips, likely aggravated by my mechanics being thrown off due to foot issues. So I’m challenged. Down but not out, with the exercise prong of the multi-pronged strategy of keeping dementia at bay.
