More on the death toll.

Death Rethinking pic 1

Suicide is what my ex-step brother’s kid committed last week. Everyone thinks depression is a joke or a plea for attention until real death happens.  There is so much social stigma in modern day to “seeking therapy” and admitting to depression.  Yet something worse can happen, and it is real death.  The kid had issues with not getting a job in a really bad recession.  A generation of Republican sending jobs overseas has now taken a toll; a death toll.

More on this week I go for a check-up.

Kind to one Another Pic 1

A year ago I got Medicaid, and growths like golf balls in my intestines were removed. This week I go for a check-up.

After being told I was imagining things and only had allergies for many years, it turned out I WAS sick.  A year ago I won a lawsuit, got Medicaid, and the four growths the size of golf balls which were punching holes in my intestines were removed. It was a genetic defect my grandmother and I both had, and in my case it was more extreme. Excrement was in my blood killing me. Migraines and searing pain were very constant in my life, and emotionally it was depressing to be so inactive. Emergency government medical aide was given after I won a lawsuit in 2014 that gave me Medicaid.  I had the four growths surgically removed a year ago.  I am feeling much better after getting the emergency care.  Yet it was scary to see just how long healthcare providers were willing to dismiss all my problems as “just allergies,” “just imagination,” and “just fine”. Often I was handed a little Nyquil of Benadryl to fix it all.  The scars still give me problems, and organ infections (from the four golf ball sized growths going so long untreated) still give me difficulties. I admit to these problems because once people hear you were on full government disability they often start playing the telephone game of exaggerating stories and lies, and next thing you know in gossip you have air-born Ebola and the Black Plague. (Problems which I do NOT have.) I go in this week for a check up on the condition, and a mammogram.  Seeing doctors always refreshes the pain in my memory.

What scares me is the idea of how many other people out there might be told they are just imagining things that are real.  I may not have been a perfect person at many parts of my life, but that does not mean that I suddenly don’t have human DNA composing my body. I am a United States citizen, and my father served in the military, my mother a teacher, and I have many degrees. I am still covered by the Hippocratic Oath that is part of United States malpractice law. (Hippocratic Oath “I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required” An oath to preserve ALL human life and not just the lives of the favored or the wealthy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippocratic_Oath )  If they could do it to me, how many OTHER people might be next in line for the “ignore you” treatment?  Where is this leading in society, what slippery slope does this show in politics? Are we just going to cannibalistically eat people now like a Soylent Green movie, because humans can be declared inhuman?  From what I have seen it is not far off from reality.

More notes on the State of the Union.

Healthcare vs Army Spending Tank Cartoon

Comedy about Obama’s state of the Union Address is pretty funny this week.  I may not like all of his policies, but I do fear how much worse it will get when he leaves.
