Mr. C has faded into history and is no more, but suffice it to say he survived and is a survivor. He no longer chooses to live here and is moving onto new horizons, feel free to join him or not, he can be found by clicking HERE.
I hope Joe doesn’t mind me letting this slip but our own Joseph Keleher will be collaborating with me on the Magnum Opus. I’m really excited about working with Joe and especially providing a serious work to help the Morgellons community cope with this illness.
The video below I thought I’d post as I found it very uplifting ….
The Mundane Approach and me seem to be one and the same, there just is no replacement.
I’ve been thinking about this and have wanted to do this for a few years now. I am going to pull all of the best material from the articles I have written (most from the “All Articles” page) into one cohesive document with some new material in there as well. Including things I left unsaid for a whole host of reasons but will now say in this final post. It seems to me that new cases of Morgellons are not near as common as they were around 2005, 2006 and so on. To me, Morgellons appears to be fading, and that is a good thing.
For posterity and those who come after us the final post on this blog will be a massive compendium of material available on this site, in book format, and in a logical order. When I make that post I will disable all comments and feedback on this site, it will stand forever as a resource for those who come after. It will essentially be static.
I do plan to start a new blog for any that are interested. I’m thinking the title will be “The Forsaken Christian”. That title can go off in many ways, but suffice it to say that will not be anti-Christian, but rather confront an even more formidable and dangerous foe. The title is subject to change before the new blog is created.
Anyway, watch for the Magnum Opus, it will be an incredibly long post, with a few revelations that I dare not say earlier in this nightmare but am ready to talk about now.
Everyone have a Merry Christmas and I hope you are all well.
It’s now estimated at nearly 93 million Americans are going to lose their current health care plans …
‘Are you sexually active? If so, with one partner, multiple partners or same-sex partners?”
Be ready to answer those questions and more the next time you go to the doctor, whether it’s the dermatologist or the cardiologist and no matter if the questions are unrelated to why you’re seeking medical help. And you can thank the Obama health law.
“This is nasty business,” says New York cardiologist Dr. Adam Budzikowski. He called the sex questions “insensitive, stupid and very intrusive.” He couldn’t think of an occasion when a cardiologist would need such information — but he knows he’ll be pushed to ask for it.
The president’s “reforms” aim to turn doctors into government agents, pressuring them financially to ask questions they consider inappropriate and unnecessary, and to violate their Hippocratic Oath to keep patients’ records confidential.
Embarrassing though it may be, you confide things to a doctor you wouldn’t tell anyone else. But this is entirely different.
Doctors and hospitals who don’t comply with the federal government’s electronic-health-records requirements forgo incentive payments now; starting in 2015, they’ll face financial penalties from Medicare and Medicaid. The Department of Health and Human Services has already paid out over $12.7 billion for these incentives.
Dr. Richard Amerling, a nephrologist and associate professor at Albert Einstein Medical College, explains that your medical record should be “a story created by you and your doctor solely for your treatment and benefit.” But the new requirements are turning it “into an interrogation, and the data will not be confidential.”
Lack of confidentiality is what concerned the New York Civil Liberties Union in a 2012 report. Electronic medical records have enormous benefits, but with one click of a mouse, every piece of information in a patient’s record, including the social history, is transmitted, disclosing too much.
The social-history questions also include whether you’ve ever used drugs, including IV drugs. As the NYCLU cautioned, revealing a patient’s past drug problem, even if it was a decade ago, risks stigma.
On the other end of the political spectrum is the Goldwater Institute, a free-market think tank. It argues that by requiring everyone to have health insurance and then imposing penalties on insurers, doctors and hospitals who don’t use the one-click electronic system, the law is violating Americans’ medical privacy.
The administration is ignoring these protests from privacy advocates. On Jan. 17, HHS announced patients who want to keep something out of their electronic record should pay cash. That’s impractical for most people.
There’s one question they can’t ask: Thanks to the NRA, Section 2716 of the ObamaCare law bars the federal government from compelling doctors and hospitals to ask you if you own a firearm.
But that’s the only question they can’t be told to ask you.
Where are the women’s rights groups that went to the barricades in the 1980s and 1990s to prevent the federal government from accessing a woman’s health records? Hypocritically, they are silent now.
Patients need to defend their own privacy by refusing to answer the intrusive social-history questions. If you need to confide something pertaining to your treatment, ask your doctor about keeping two sets of books so that your secret stays in the office. Doctors take the Hippocratic Oath seriously and won’t be offended.
Are such precautions paranoid? Hardly. WikiLeaker Bradley Manning showed how incompetent the government is at keeping its own secrets; incidents where various agencies accidentally disclose personal data like Social Security numbers are legion. And that’s not to mention the ways in which commercial databases are prone to hacking and/or exploitation.
Be careful about sharing your medical secrets with Uncle Sam.
"Fox and Friends" Gretchen Carlson wasn’t on vacation for the two weeks she was gone, she was battling Lyme Disease. While this hasn’t made mainstream headlines, she did mention it in passing on "Fox and Friends" live. Gretchen lives in Connecticut, which is the state that had the first diagnosed case of Lyme Disease decades ago. It also remains one of the most active states for new cases of Lyme Disease. She also tweeted about her illness on the "Fox and Friends" Twitter Page.
I watch Fox and Friends every morning as I drink my coffee and knew she had been off the show for quite a while and one day last week when she was back she was having trouble thinking of something and she tapped her head and said “Lyme Brain” and I knew then right away, most probably had know idea. I thought I would Google it today and indeed she was down with Lyme disease.
