I hope you're happy doctor pigs of America. Because of your absolute refusal to acknowledge the profound corruption within your own industry and your absolute determination to make every American a drug addicted hypochondriac, medical testing junkie, I have decided to keep this ad posted all over the web for the rest of my life. When my step-dad does finally pass away from natural causes (years from now), I will post the update. But I will never let you sold-out drug pushing pigs get away with treating him like an ATM machine, leaving him riddled with side-effects, turning him into a slobbering basket case, ignoring the obvious, misdiagnosing him with advanced Alzheimer's, turning three lives upside down, and NEARLY KILLING HIM.
He's doing fine now that he's out of your greedy sold-out clutches. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of seniors out there are still bed ridden basket cases because of you. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Alzheimer's and Dementia are misdiagnosed more often than not because of your determination to drug the people of America, seniors in particular, FAR MORE OFTEN than necessary and because of the blithering idiot stupidity and utter naivete of their families. Stupidity and naivete so incredibly profound that it prevents them from doing the simple research to confirm common drug-related side effects like confusion, impaired thinking, memory loss, hallucinations, depression, agitation, irritability and loss of coordination. Those which mimic the symptoms of Alzheimer's and Dementia. Not to mention others like fast, slow, or irregular heartbeat, pounding heartbeat, angina, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, dizziness, and weakness. Those which mimic the symptoms of cardiovascular disease. If only they would wake the fxxx up and realize how incredibly corrupt and incompetent you really are. The majority could save their loved ones, get them off most of that PHARMACEUTICAL CRAP, and save tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in the process.
But they won't because they are TOO GXX DXXX FXXXXXX STUPID.
The above photo is the problem with our health care industry in a nut shell. But it's even worse. Far more sinister. You see, our screwed up doctors almost never acknowledge the issue of drug-related side effects. By doing so, they would slit the throat of their own bloated greedy pig industry. Instead, they simply use the symptoms as an excuse to do more testing and diagnose one 'disease', 'disorder', or 'condition' after another. Almost never admitting that the symptoms were caused by taking too many drugs to begin with.
I've mentioned my step-dad several times on talk radio and several times online. As I've said from day one, he was misdiagnosed with advanced Alzheimer's (not to mention bipolar, schizophrenia, and various forms of heart disease). In fact, he has been taken to the emergency room at least a dozen times because of drug-related side-effects. He also spent 4 months in a nursing home because EVERY ONE OF HIS DOCTORS at one of the highest rated hospitals in the country had my mother convinced that he was dying of advanced Alzheimer's. Well, those doctors were all DEAD FXXXXXX WRONG.
When he left the hospital, he was on 8 separate prescription drugs daily. Most (maybe all) of them were totally unnecessary. As a direct result, he was a basket case. Within 5 days of being admitted to a nursing home for 'rehabilitation', they had him up to 13 separate prescription drugs daily. As ANOTHER direct result, he went from bad to worse in their care. He was a complete fxxxxxx, babbling, slobbering, hallucinating, bed ridden, diaper wearing BASKET CASE.
Then, finally, after several months of screaming at doctors, nurses, and my own mother, she finally took the possibility of misdiagnosis seriously and got him the hell out of there. I spent the next several months doing additional research and arguing with my mother about just how low to cut his daily meds. This had to be done against the advice of at least a half dozen doctors. After all, they had already blown their own credibility out their rank a$$es. Their word meant CRAP to me.
Well, as expected, this first quarter ninth grade dropout has proven the largest industry in the world to be horribly corrupt and incompetent AGAIN. It isn't the first time. Not by a long shot.
My step-dad is now 81 years old. He is on two prescription drugs daily (very low dose) plus baby aspirin. Less than he has ever been on in the 12 years that I have known him and just a fraction of what the industry had him on at 79. The drastic cuts have been made carefully and gradually but AGAINST THE ADVICE of his doctors.
For the first time in over a decade, my step-dads mind and body are both stable. For the first time in over a decade, he has gone a full year with no visits to the emergency room. Well over a full year. For the first time in over a decade, there is virtually no hint of any mental or physical disorder aside from a slight issue with short term memory and stiff hands. Personally, I feel that he would improve even further if he were to stop taking the last two prescription drugs that he still takes but I'm not absolutely sure and it's not imperative that we find out. He doesn't need to be perfect. He is doing fantastic. In fact, he functions like a healthy 65 year old.
If I had any belief whatsoever in God, I would call it a miracle straight from Heaven. But that's not what it is. He never should have been a fxxxxxx bed ridden basket case to begin with. The industry MADE HIM THAT WAY. IT WAS THEIR GXX DXXX FAULT TO BEGIN WITH. IT WAS THEIR GXX DXXX FAULT THAT HE WENT TO THE EMERGENCY ROOM FOR A POUNDING ERRATIC HEARTBEAT, A WELL KNOWN SIDE-EFFECT. IT WAS THEIR GXX DXXX FAULT THAT HE SPENT A MONTH IN THE HOSPITAL AND ANOTHER FOUR MONTHS IN A NURSING HOME. IT WASN'T ADVANCED ALZHEIMER'S OR DEMENTIA OR SCHIZOPHRENIA OR BIPOLAR OR ANY OTHER DISEASE. IT WAS ALL GXX DXXX DRUG-RELATED SIDE EFFECTS. VIRTUALLY EVERY PROBLEM THAT HE HAS HAD OVER THE LAST DECADE WAS A DRUG-RELATED SIDE-EFFECT. MOTHER NATURE DIDN'T SCREW UP OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER. THEY DID. THOSE GXX DXXX SOLD-OUT DRUG PUSHING GREEDY DOCTOR PIGS.
I think it's safe to say that his doctors all screwed up. AGAIN. This wasn't the first time. Not by a long shot. A few years ago, at the age of 72 or 73, he was prescribed Viagra by one of his sold-out drug pushing doctors. Aside from the obvious issue with his age and celibate lifestyle, his doctors also ignored the fact that he was taking nitrates for chest pain. Nitrates that he never would have been taking to begin with if it weren't for the angina caused by another drug that he was taking for high (or so he was told) blood pressure.
This is just one more of many examples in which my step-dad has been treated like an ATM machine by the health care industry. If one were to do the math, the total paid to cover his inappropriate care for bogus conditions and drug-related side-effects just within the last decade alone would certainly exceed $100,000.
My step-dad is just one of over 300,000,000 American citizens. Most of whom, have blind faith in their own doctors. The vast overwhelming majority of which are part of the problem. There are no words to fully describe the level of corruption and incompetence now rampant in our health care industry. It is nothing short of a national crisis.
Meanwhile, the debate over health care rages on. Unfortunately, that debate is based almost entirely on the FALSE belief that our health care industry is worth it's weight in crap to begin with.
It's not. For every one thing it does right, it does at least two wrong.
In many cases, dead wrong. Fortunately, my step-dad is one of the survivors.
But they damn near killed him.
If I had any belief whatsoever in God, I would pray for two meteors, each the size of a house. One for the hospital and one for the nursing home. They damn near killed my step-dad. They robbed him of nearly a half year of his life. They turned two more lives upside down in the process.
And they got paid for it.
Fortunately for at least a half dozen drug-pushing greedy pig doctors who have treated my step-dad like an ATM machine, I have enough self-discipline to resist the incredible urge to kill them.
and I do it without meds. Go figure (again).
