I'm weird, I know: "Magic Orbs" Fine Art Print by Lynda Lehmann http://t.co/aHfszIP via @redbubble #art #fantasy #digital
GreenLady7 Well, Lynda, you are a bit weird, but only in the very nicest kind of way. :D
scribadiva I agree. I had a thing for fractals that I've revived recently. You're not so weird, said the crazy lady...and lady is pronounced Jerry Lewis style, as in Laaa-deee! On good days, I wake up to Jerry Lewis. No kidding; Chazz is good at that.
LyndaLehmann Thanks GL 7! Scriba, you are Linda and I am Lynda. Your husband is Chazz and mine is Chas! ;)
scribadiva Yes, I remember. And we have the same taste in art, both love nature photography....and I know I'm forgetting something significant. did lots of homework tonight; have to get to bed. Have drs. tomorrow, and I've been sitting too long, so here comes the scolding, patronizing. #@$%, but Chazz is feeling better, and he's intent on threatening every doctor with lawsuits b/c they're killing me. A bit over-dramatic, but I'm tired of defending myself, and he will scare the hell out of them. When I can, I'm going to talk about the way I am now "profiled" by them,. They are messing with the wrong person, and don't know how bad it can be without contacting the board of registry or AMA. I'm not alone in this. This is what chronic pain patients go through. Very overtired, rambling. But read and learned a lot! Have a wonderful day, ladies, and I'll see you soon. Sweet summer tides, Linda
LyndaLehmann Scriba, I had problems with my surgeon and the medical establishment when I had breast cancer. One has to be the strongest self-advocate, because no one else can/will really do it. And it's a tall order when you're sick and frightened and your life is swallowed whole by medical "treatments," many of which I truly believe, make us sicker.
I hope you can get your message across and you have good support from your hubby.
scribadiva no on both. It makes him sick to see the way they treat me--yelling, calling me fat, and not letting me explain.I had drs. saying, oh Ovarian Cander, or Adrenal Disease. Since the head trauma, my stomoach growls, but I'm not hungry.If I ate even a yogurt on the fourth day, I wouldn' faint. Finally, a VNA nurse told me: "That is sucha no-brainer.o Your body thought you were starving, so anything you ate, it held on to the k. I wasn't burning k or fat, I eat under 10% fat, b/c of a breast cancer study I worked 9on at Tufts, the relation bet. fat consumption and breast cancer, and training women to eat less fat.. I designed the manuals for the behaviorists. It was a pilot project in 4 citiesk, in 1987 or so,, and I took care of weekly communications. PC's were very new.I was raised on skim milk, and it doesn't matter; I think we have the gene. My mother and (fav) maternal aunt had full masctomies, and, by the time tumors I have change shape, they'll have to cut them both off. I'm so sorry you had t go through that! It's always been a given for me. And you are right, I have also concluded treatments given are on the basis of how much money they can charge, even if they put me in in more with injections, which, after 1-1/2 years, I still have pain in a place I didn't have pain before. As far as getting my message across, I have to write something for all doctors, b/c I look like hell now, and they assume I'm some crack addict, so they feel free to abuse me verbally. Wonder what they will feel when commissions against discrimination against disabled comes a knockin'! And I am not alone, getting abused. Sorry I went on and on, but yu hit on some truths I am dealing with now. Sweet summer tides,.
