I feel very badly about posting of "my own feelings towards pills' and the desire to have proactive health measures first before pills.
My intention was not to upset anyone, or to put down the medical field...not even close.
I'm taking a medication that helps my mental health. No pill can fix cancer, no pill can bring back my kidney function. I'm doing what I can through diet and exercise to keep my remaining kidney functioning.
My son, 23, is taking a medication because of his sedate life, his choice, which lead to 4 blood clots, both lungs and legs. I Thank God for the medication he has the ability to take to keep him alive. This is where I guess my trigger comes from, even today the focus is not on his 100lb over weight body...but again, it's his choice. I will say I'm very proud of him that he is doing what the dr's told him he needed to do...exercise, watch his diet, and stop drinking sport drinks and switch to water.
I guess my own thoughts might be better kept to myself.
Again I'm sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings...
So Not Intentional.
The neighbor who ajoins the wall with me constantly sets off fires in the kitchen. They put on something to cook on the stove and then leave to let the kitchen catch fire. This has been going on for the past 2 years and management has done nothing about it.On the other side of me is the main pipe for gas.Each time they have a fire, I am the only one on the floor and of course I see and hear...
finallly an answer, not a particularly good one but an answer all the same to some of the questions. PT said that because it has gone on for so long untreated that my only option is surgery. I have to allow this to sink in. She accessed the results of my MRI which doc probably had when I saw him last Friday but he never thought to mention because hey, I was there for recurring mouth...
