(Entry featuring antique Ambulances)
Have you ever noticed no matter what medical advice you get from your doctor, friends or newspaper articles, that no matter what the opinion, you can find an opposite opinion on the internet by ‘reputable’ doctors?
I look up side affects of most drugs, the same with this ‘whatchumacallit’ statin drug. I find praise, I find lawyers wanting you to join in a class action suit, I find folks swearing it killed their mama.
I remember when a family member was attacked by cancer, I immediately went to the internet to see the story on his type of cancer. Wouldn’t you know it, Harvard and Yale doctors said in over 96% of cases, it was fatal. Not too much hope in that. But just a few more hits down I found a miracle cure. One from Canada that was guaranteed to cure anyone or your money back. I read the testimonials, man were they great. It is amazing how some people will prey on the fears and anxieties of the stricken.
Then there are the natural cures, using foods and herbs.
We are all recommended to eat a low fat diet. No red meat or pork. The first site I read was a Dr. who said check the records, there are more heart attacks by people with low cholesterol than with high. He said the problem is we need Lard, bacon grease, duck and chicken fat in moderation, to survive and live a healthy life into your 80’s.
This health thing is worse than opinions on global warming. Experts on all sides ‘proving their side is right!’ AND THEY HAVE THE STATS TO PROVE IT.
Enough to stress us lo-stressaholics out. hahahahahahahaha!
Tomorrow is Sherry’s time to see her Doctor. Wonder what surprises await?
Anyway, I will take the meds for 6 months and go back for more blood work to see how we are doing.
Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together
it spells 'Theirs...' (‘bout that time again!)
Thanks for all the advice and encouragement. I don’t feel any different and I took a pill last night. It may have helped some; I don’t think I got pregnant.
