Too Sick to Serve - due to Chemo....?

Post by AJMD429 »

Now 'chemo' varies, and young healthy people sometimes are wiped out mentally ('chemo brain') and physically, and old frail people sometimes barely falter, but.....

Justice Ginsburg is just trying to hold her seat until after the election.

Maybe Joe Biden will be selecting the next Justice.

I personally wish the old communist would die and join her communist friend John Lewis...

As far as I'm concerned after all of this "white privilege" , burning down businesses, shooting cops, well, the war is on.....

All of this "sitting back", " helping the disenchanted" ," being racially sensitive ", etc...etc....while they shoot us, knock out old women in wheelchairs, rape our women, kill our women, steal..loot...pillage...with no repercussions or care....all with little to no "policing of their own" with support from the media, I've had enough......

Good...John Lewis is dead....wish RBG would hurry up and die.......throw her nasty body in the New York river and make her a "floater". :D

For those thinking that this is NOT a communist plot to overthrow our American way of life and to think of the millions of vets who died and suffered terribly to preserve freedom, well, you need to die too.

I'm just sitting back and enjoying life at my little homestead and don't bother anyone, of any race or creed or religion...but if you think your coming onto my homestead with communist thoughts, your going to have a problem.

Doc,
"Sicker"? I hope that was a typo. :D I ain't sick....I'm just not afraid to voice common sense and expose the ones who are determined to take away what millions died for....freedom...

Yes..I listened to it all......and it's all common sense.....what's so hard about common sense?

I've never hated ANYONE for their color, religion, or whatever........but when we get attacked for things none of us had anything to do with I get defensive........life could be sooooooooooo easy for we 300,000,000 + Americans if we just followed common sense. Opportunity is EVERYWHERE.....yes..there is free college for the ones who come from less than ideal backgrounds....these lazy punks want everything handed to them.

You know yourself, coming from a regular background on what it took for you to reach the esteemed status of a doctor...it was no walk in the park I'm sure.

I don't think there is anyone alive today that agrees with slavery or for that matter, ANYONE who has the right to control another's life....unless your in prison. I sure as hell ain't gonna pay the price for what others have done....

Our ancestors conquered the Indians.oh well...let's move on...what are all supposed to do.....all have a walk to the ocean like lemmings.

ITS ALL A COMMUNIST PLOT........the weak minded are easily converted...

Life could be so nice without all of this stupidity. Like I said earlier, I enjoy life..have it great here in Sixgun Land..everything bought and paid for wth loot in the bank and some of the finest Winchesters and Colts in existence.....we all have our health...life is good.......laugh, enjoy every minute.... there's not much I can do except vote and write our congressman.....and of course, display our Trump flags.......
I don't look for trouble but if they come here to do harm and I'll say it publicly ...I won't be the first to go down..


TRUMP 2020!!!

LOL yep that was voice-typing on my iPhone I still am not used to.

The funny thing about the 'hate based on race' thing is that THEY (the 'tolerant' left, and the BLM-type blacks) are the only ones who truly DO 'hate based on race'.

Even funnier - GUESS WHO ended slavery, starting in the U.S., then pretty much the rest of the world.......?

White.....

Christian.....

Males.....

in the United States.....

who owned 'military-style' firearms.....

The EXACT group that these LibTards and BLM-holes are hating on... :roll:


Still, I haven't "generalized" (the way they do), so I still like black people, and really couldn't care less if they are gay, straight, lesbian (bring pictures :o :D ), like sheep, live in a mansion or a trailer, or what God they pray to (as long as it doesn't involve 'killing infidels'). On the other hand, because the LibTard/BLM-hole crowd judges everyone by skin color and genitalia and so-on, they are just convinced that we dislike them because of those things, when in fact the only people we dislike are ones who spew hate and advocate initiation of violence to attain political change. THAT is why we 'dislike' them.

They accuse whites of treating all blacks badly just because a few are violent mooches, but very few whites actually do that. However, when a cop has to grapple with an 'innocent, unarmed' person who is resisting or fleeing that traffic ticket because he has a bunch of outstanding warrants for violent crimes, that citizen WILL be 'treated poorly' because when they try to grab the cop's gun, the cop will likely (hopefully) shoot them. THAT is not being 'racist' - that is called 'survival', and could all be stopped if the mommas and daddies of the world told their kids "cooperate with Mr. Policeman". VERY seldom are there truly bad/racist cops, and those can be weeded out, as it should be. ON THE OTHER HAND, these LibTards and BLM-holes DO generalize and racially stereotype everyone else - so that because one percent of cops are bad - ALL cops get spit on and assaulted and hurt, and because one percent of white people two hundred years ago had slaves who were mostly black, ALL white people are deemed 'guilty' of slavery, and because one percent of Republican voters may be 'skinheads', ALL Republicans are treated as if they are NAZI's...which is pretty hilarious since it refers to the 'National Socialist German Workers Party'... :roll:

Bottom line is it is human nature to 'hate' those who are different, but 'conservatives' have GROWN UP, and the first time they try that as toddlers, their PARENTS correct that behavior. On the other hand, the SnowFlake/Progresssssssive crowd usually come from dysfunctional 'families' where Dada is in jail, or nowhere to be found, or so busy chasing dollars that the kid barely knows him, and Momma is playing the welfare system, or too busy socializing and spending Dada's money to pay attention to little Johnny or Suzie, so they grow up needing lifetime counseling.

The LibTards ALWAYS seem to discover their own flaws, then project them on others, then criticize and demean the others, without ever having the self-awareness to realize how poorly they fit into a kind and productive society. They are driven by hate and envy, and even greed, but project all those on the 'conservatives' they resent so much (perhaps because we are happy, value and maintain intact families, and/or have spiritual faith).

If they weren't so violent and destructive to society, I would actually feel sorry for the LIbTards and SnowFlakes, but when they are vandalizing your vehicle, stealing your hard-earned money, and destroying the fabric of your nation, it is difficult to care much for them.

Well said Doc...I enjoy reading your inner thoughts and true wisdom. I learn a lot from you.....learn from Jim T on the gun things. :D
It's great to have you onboard........

As this delusional "movement" has been going on for so many decades, I feel utterly hopeless on it turning around. Only thing we can do is to keep our guns because for sure, you know they will be after our lives if we don't have them.---6

After as many times as she has had cancer, my opinion is that Satan just doesn't want her. She should be dead many times. Well, maybe she is doing his work so well that he is just leaving her alive.

July of '54....after I got older my mom and dad told me that I was indeed a twin. They were strapped for money and sold off the good looking smart one for big bucks. They told me that the one they kept was inferior and would make an "easy keeper", one that they could just keep in the basement and feed it peanuts.

Always wondered why I'm down the basement all the time...brother!--6

When my son was just old enough to start shooting pistols, I told him that when he was born, we accidentally threw away the baby and kept the placenta, and that explained alot of things... :D

Sorry to hear and hope you do get well. Just out of curiosity, with all the medical marijuana relief centers popping up, did your doctor ever discuss this with you about the handling the nausea and energy drain due to chemo? I"m just trying to see different views and opinions as to this aspect . I've been getting answers both ways. Some swear by the medical relief of weed and some say they wouldn't touch the stuff with a ten foot pole. I'M in favor of it if it helps with relief. My brother suffers from an optical stroke, but still smokes cigarettes against doctors orders. He has headaces and trouble converting thought to speech. I suggested med weed relief and he got bent out of shape when I did. :roll:

Medical marijuana has uses. As far as it being a drug, that is something that has only been around since about the prohibition era. I will quit now so that I don't throw this thread into an argument.

No chemo (or cancer yet thankfully) for me. Just Ginsberg.

As far as marijuana, think of it like green tea, literally. BOTH are plants that people have used for thousands of years, for the mellow buzz or the energizing buzz, from THC and caffeine respectively.

Now we know that the benefit of tea to health is great - with terpenes and polyphenols that help the immune system fight infections and cardiovascular disease and cancer, and some folks want those benefits without the caffeine. There are other plants with some of those chemicals, or they can drink 'de-caffeinated' tea which has had the caffeine chemically extracted.

Well, if one wants the other beneficial chemicals that are in marijuana, and there are perhaps even more than in the tea, it used to be they had to put up with the 'buzz' (which isn't always something they want), AND had to risk arrest due to the RIDICULOUS 'war on drugs', merely for eating/drinking/breathing something different than their neighbor uses for his or her buzz.

However, you CAN separate out the other chemicals from the THC, and get 'cannabidiol' for its benefits (typically help with pain, anxiety, depression, and sensory overload) without the buzz or failing drug tests. Even better, you can use a different but related plant - the hemp plant - that has essentially zero THC in it, so you can get ALL the other beneficial components and not just the cannabidiol. Not only does it produce a product more likely to work for people ('full spectrum' hemp oil), but it is easier than separating out THC chemically, and doesn't involve all the regulatory issues you have to deal with if you start with marijuana instead of hemp as a raw material.

I've got many patients who use CBD or Hemp Oil, usually orally, and sometimes topically. I think it is incredibly safe, and has helped many patients wean off of more dangerous pain medications or antidepressant or anti anxiety medications. Of course they should NOT stop other meds without consulting with their own personal physician.

The biggest problem is that at this point, it is still sort of an 'underground' thing, and the number of products out there is staggering. Some are pure, some are not - some are mixed with other stuff, some are not in a well-absorbed format, and they ALL advertise so well that each person comes in with their bottle and brochure and tells me they've "researched" and that the brand they are on is clearly the 'best'. :roll: In addition since many are tier-marketed, there is little honest comparison between products. People ask me all the time "which brand is ok" and although we do stock the oral Thorne brand capsules in our office because I think they are a quality product, I direct patients to the compounding pharmacy and a friend who is the pharmacist owner there - he will sell them something decent and counsel them on proper use and dosage and so on.

The other 'issue' is that there is a segment of society who has had issues with prescription medications or doctors in general, so has decided to reject ALL traditional medicine, and will use anything 'natural' (even if dangerous) instead of anything 'pharmaceutical' (even if safe) - those people expect herbal and 'natural' supplements to do things that are unrealistic, and miss out on proper care. However I don't favor a 'regulatory' solution - people have opinion, preferences, and make choices, and as long as they don't tax or blame me for what they do, it doesn't bother me.

Unfortunately, while on the one hand being 'under-regulated' as a supplement versus a true 'medication' legally, the cost of hemp oils is unreasonably high, although they are getting more affordable.

The other problem with the products isn't really due to what is in them, but some people 'vape' the stuff, but using ANY medication via inhalation unless it really NEEDS to be given that way just seems like a bad way to risk lung damage.

Hemp was once a very common farm product in America. The Native Americans used it as medicine and in ceremonies. I have never used it, but I could not care any less if someone else uses it as long as they do not drive while impaired. As far as medicinal uses go, why not? We use opioids and they cause tons of problems if misused.

Yeah we should have laws against 'public intoxication' with teeth, instead of focusing on which drug or booze is involved. Harmlessly walking around intoxicated would be a misdemeanor and operating anything dangerous like a car, a felony. The problem is that there are probably a bunch of people who couldn't pass a 'field sobriety test' even if totally sober. Nobody wants to be the one to tell them that they can't go out in public...
