I've been writing a series of poems, which I hope have the mordancy of the artist Francisco José de Goya. Here is one of them:

 

Goyaesque: a cruel-faced neurologist

 

told me that my wife was dying, and
told me that I’d have to make arrangements:
he mentioned a nursing-home. He showed us

a stock scan which was not hers, and which
he carried with him. Well; events
turned otherwise. But he never liked her

getting better. She recovered. But he
he never liked her getting better. And when
she sent him images of her later work

he never responded. Ah, well.

Thank you, David.  As always, well said.  Sorry that there are small people in large places.

Ah well, David, so sad. So simply said and so sad.

PPMS-misdiagnosed 2001-diagnosed 2006. Probably caught cpn in birth canal but it didn't pass BBB until my 40s. Minocycline 7 mos.- resulting bronchitis 5 months.Go to private m.d. out-of-plan. Wheldon CAP 3/2/07 Stopped 12/12; resumed 12/13

Oh well, christmas is nearly here, so time to send him another card with a picture of my work.  He probably won’t get the subtle sarcasm in this one.  Maybe David should send him this poem!.................. Sarah

A Journey through Light and Shadow

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.

It is a well said and so true poem.

I think, David should send him this poem.

One day this neuro might trip over the amount of post from you,

whack him!

He is a cave troll as it is!  A few goats might go down very well, though, or something to cause spontaneous combustion: the man is a devout Methodist, after all................... Sarah

 Take heart , I am an open minded physician .most are, but  neurologists some are not ( much knowledge to a small mind is like alcohol to a bufoon, they think the world of them self) . let me compose this minute, a poem on this  as a  balm, dear friend

 

BRING IN THE JASPERS 

It is not about you personally , but what you represent, an arrogant shadow that seeks to cover this little light in my "life"

but , I let  you know , this little light of mine will  out shine the darkness you respresent in the  little knowledge they allowed you to "fife"

FOR I have friends in high- lit places(CPNHELP) , in the moutain tops , treetops, and they like eagles in the sky  lift up my spirit in hope that this little light of mine , would become one with the big light that lights that sky,inspite of the Lucifers

and yet you from behind your little dark hole  with your little knowledge ,you  dare to  peek at my little light and masturbate, and I say to you my learned friend, bring on the Jaspers!!, Bring on the Jaspers,

 for I will be well, some day , inspite of the darkness,  inspite of the Lucifers, bring on  ,  the Cossacks ,bring on the Marines, I say to you all ,  bring on the  jaspers

....or take me home lord, I will not live in thier darkness!!! I refuse to die in thier darknes.. at my dying bring on the Jaspers.

Had I rejected what I didn't understand, I believe I'd be dead today.  That neuro, to my mind, is sentencing some of his patients to death (or worse) because he closes his mind to curiosity and new thoughts and information.   Fortunately, those here on the site are not 'that' kind of people.

DW, though I doubt you intentionally posted this on the eve of (American) Thanksgiving, it's wholly appropriate today.  Thank you.

The difference between what we do and what we are capable of doing would suffice to solve most of the world’s problems. Mohandas Gandhi

Difficult for us to understand how he could be so heartless. He was probably a narcissist. Well said, David Raven

Feeling 98% well-going for 100. Very low test for Cpn. CAP since 8-05 for Cpn/Mycoplasma P.,Lyme, Bartonella, Mold exposure,NAC,BHRT, MethyB12 FIR Sauna. 1-18-11 begin new treatment plan with naturopath

Might I add, at the risk of being trite, that I have another name to add to his.  Maybe it would be worthwhile to compile a list of these refuseniks and send lots of meaningful and artistic cards and paintings. I am only half-joking!

No-one could accuse you of being trite, Rica: you are a Brahmah!

D W - [Myalgia and hypertension (typically 155/95.) Began (2003) taking doxycycline and macrolide and later adding metronidazole. No medication now. Morning BP typically 110/75]

I think it is much more efficient to make a black list of "refuseniks" and put it publicly on the internet with appropriate comment. That is what we did in our country. Many of them later rather prescribed some atb just in order not to see their name sneered.

Stratton/Wheldon protocol 02/2006 - 10/11 for CFS and many problems 30 years

But there is big problem here, these refuseniks, these buffoons don't read this black list, they read nothing, they value themself that they ate all knowledges of the world. I met one yesterday, and I feel sick today for that reason ....

On CAPs:12/01/2005 till March 2013; 20 years CFS,IBS, fibromyalgia; about 10 years chronic sinusitis, laryngotracheitis, from 2002 hoarseness; from 2003 - v.s. lumbosacral meningoradiculitis, hypertension...
