    can anyone give me ideas for where a rich young woman might live that's between 30 to 60 minutes from San Francisco? just a town name will do.

    i can look at places on a map but i have no idea whether those places are fashionable or whether they're a bit rough or full of old people or whatever!

    anyone familiar with the area who can help me out? thank you!

    Atherton. I'm pretty sure it's within 40 minutes of San Fransisco. My aunt lives there, and I always fly in the San Fran airport.

    Yeah, I know how that's like. Atherton is pretty high class. Not all the houses are super big, but everything is so damn expensive, and all the people have high priced cars.

    umm, surprisingly not far, cos the buildings muffle sound. not to mention the traffic/people noise.

    i'd say about half a mile on a busy, noisy day.
    up to about 2 miles on a quiet night.

    [while i can hear the church bells in my village from over a mile away, and they're tiny in comparison! yay for the quiet countryside!]

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking since I can barely hear the church bells in Chicago when I'm a mile away.
    Thanks.

    Now I I have a question. Was the Italian mafia around before the 1920's in Chicago? I know it was going on in Sicily, but not sure about Chicago.
    Im gonna have to say yes to that, it only got so much more attention because of prohibition in the 20's, but the mafias always been around.

    from here
    here
    and here

    antipsychotics, such as Risperdal - they usually take up to 2 weeks to start working.
    they're small green tablets [also available as wafers, to 2-weekly injections]
    with the tablets, you start off at 2mg a day and work up slowly to 4 - 8mg a day, taking it once or twice daily. [that's for ADULTS, it's a little lover for adolescents]

    also Clozapine - it's more effective at controlling symptoms but it has potenitally lethal side effects so peopel must be very carefully monitored.
    they're pale yellow tablets, and you usually start off at 12.5mg once or twice a day, and slowly work up to a usual dose of 300-450 mg a day, taking the pills once or twice daily. no more than 900mg a day.

    also, sufferers usually get put on intense therapy or CBT courses to help them deal with the disease.

    Well, min wage in the UK is around the £4.50/hr mark, but it depends on your age
    I get paid £5.20 an hour at my work cause Im 18 but I know thats above min wage - thats at a normal high street store so I'd imagine it's be around that, probally slightly less

    How long were you in hospital, what was the recovery time?

    My mom did. She said she stayed in the hospital for a week.
    She also said it took her 3 months to recover the pain.

    But you know, people have different bodies...
    Some may have longer recovery times and such.
