New Developments on the Coronavirus

(via Glenn Beck)

• Regular surgical masks offer inadequate protection; need painting & sanding N95 masks

• It can survive on surfaces for NINE DAYS

• It can travel — airborne — through pipes

• Yesterday the head of the World Health Organization said the coronavirus is “the worse enemy you can ever imagine and poses a greater global threat than terrorism”

• Some experts are speculating that if Chinese containment fails, 60 percent of the world population could become infected

• Survivors are not producing any sort of antibodies — which means they are no less susceptible to reinfection


TO REVIEW:

• It can be transmitted via the skin

• The mucus membranes are particularly susceptible to infection

• It’s airborne

• It has a 24-day incubation period

• It can be transmitted asymptomatically

Child Abuse for Woke Points

0

Up to 94% of pre-pubescent “trans kids” will eventually cease identifying as the opposite sex.  Pumping them full of puberty blockers & sex hormones is quite literally child abuse.

The physical and endocrinological changes will be for the most part irreversible.  Boys will end up with micropenises and increased breast tissue, girls with excessive body hair and little to no breast tissue.  Both will more than likely end up infertile.

Puberty blockers also retard neurological development and bone growth, resulting cognitive impairment, lower IQ, low bone density, and increased risk of fractures.

But by all means, keep abusing your children so you can virtue signal on social media about how goddamned “progressive” you are.

False Diagnoses

I had Lyme disease a number of years ago, but my idiot doctor used an outmoded test when they were trying to figure out wtf was wrong with me, so I scored a false positive.

It went untreated for nearly a year after the onset of symptoms, to the point that it began to affect my brain.  They thought I had MS.

The neurologist I was seeing wanted to try me on meds, so he ended up referring me to a colleague who specialized in it.  The MS specialist did some fresh bloodwork straight away — he never expected to find anything — and that’s how they finally figured out it was Lyme (along with a co-infection).

I knew a nurse whose daughter wasn’t so lucky.  She spent 10 years being medicated for MS until she had to move up north to live with her mother because she was no longer able to take care of herself, let alone her child.

Naturally, she needed a new neurologist.  The new guy realized right away that something didn’t add up, and they eventually ended up suing that first doctor for misdiagnosing her Lyme as MS.

I don’t know whatever came of the suit, but the woman’s life was permanently ruined — moreso by the MS drugs that the Lyme.

She was around my age.  Her son was around my son’s age. 🙁

Re: UK Denying Treatment to People for Being Offensive

This is terrifying to me.  Putting aside the issue of crimethink, I was stuck in a hospital (and later nursing home) for a number of weeks because I required 24/7 palliative care.  Between the pain itself and the incredible amount of Dilaudid they had to keep circulating through my system even as I slept, I was completely out of my goddamned mind.  I couldn’t make my own medical decisions because much of the time I was delirious, and even when I seemed alert, I had very little grasp on what was happening to me.  (I refused food for a full two weeks, all the while complaining that the nurses were starving me.)

My short term memory was shot (I ended up being blessed with permanent amnesia), and I was an absolute fucking bitch, screaming all sorts of abusive things at every female who came in contact with me.  (Yes, just the women, apparently.)

I didn’t know what the hell I was doing.  I’m normally the world’s most charismatic patient, but between the pain and the drugs and the trauma (both physical and emotional), I was an absolute hellion to the poor people at the hospital.  (From what I understand, the nursing home staff deserved me.)

I didn’t have any mental health issue to help account for my behavior, and it wasn’t until I was readmitted (a few weeks after my release) that they realized the extent to which my “medically-induced psychosis” had influenced my behavior.  (One of the palliative care nurses confided in me that she’d assumed I was just a bitch.)

So yeah, the idea of being abandoned to that kind of suffering and ultimately left to die of shock both terrifies and angers me.

Unethical Sham

‪D‬octors who prescribe opioid pain medications are being systematically persecuted because this media-manufactured “opioid epidemic” means a low-risk, positive-PR crusade for politicians on both sides of the aisle and good feelz for the activists.

‪The DEA is specifically targeting specialists who treat chronic pain patients (neurologists, oncologists, and rheumatologists in particular) and the burden of proving that they are not overprescribing ultimately rests with the doctors — an egregious miscarriage of justice.‬

‪It’s not enough for a doctor to demonstrate that they are adhering to established guidelines when prescribing opioids — they are required to demonstrate first that alternative treatments have been exhausted and found inadequate, and then‬ ‪they are required to prescribe only the lowest possible dosage required to “manage” (not alleviate) the pain.  Which in itself is monstrous.‬

‪A government bureaucrat opens a file and brainstorms a form of treatment that hasn’t been tried — even if it falls outside that doctor’s purview or it has been discounted for whatever reason (shit like accupuncture — I’m not kidding), they open an investigation.‬

‪A bureaucrat notices that a doc seems to be writing a lot of prescriptions — perhaps because they specialize in treating patients with neuromuscular disorders (or fucking cancer).  Investigation opened.‬

‪The investigations are a sham. All it takes to prosecute is a doctor on the government payroll deciding that they could have gone with a lower dosage for one of their patients.‬

‪These are almost always GPs with zero experience treating the conditions in question, who have examined neither the patient nor their medical records (because “protecting” patients is important). Some are hired straight out of med school, without any real-world experience.‬

Who ends up getting hurt — besides the doctors and their families?  Patients.  Because far too many practices are simply abolishing opioid prescriptions altogether.

‪Again, this is disproportionately affecting doctors who treat neurological & rheumatological disorders, autoimmune diseases, and cancer.‬

This is sick, this is evil, and nobody gives a damn (unless they’re a patient or doctor) because everybody loves a feel-fucking-good crusade.

The War on Pain Management

Private response to a Danielle Stella tweet:

There needs to be a congressional investigation into the tactics being used to prosecute — or rather PERSECUTE — specialists who prescribe pain medications.  The DOJ is having doctors testify in court who have ZERO experience treating the conditions for which these drugs are being prescribed, with many of them being hired to work as full-time consultants STRAIGHT OUT OF MED SCHOOL.‬

I have been fortunate that my neurologist is still willing to treat my pain, as his practice has otherwise ceased prescribing opioid medications.  Yet he cut my dosage IN HALF after two of his colleagues were sentenced to federal prison DESPITE ADHERING TO CDC GUIDELINES.

(He told me he had three daughters, two in college, and that he couldn’t afford to go to prison.)

The DOJ simply had their pets testify that certain patients COULD have been treated with lower doses than were prescribed, and in at least one case they claimed not enough alternative forms of pain management had been explored ‪before resorting to opioids.‬

The government is FLAGRANTLY interfering in our medical care in response to a media-manufactured crisis that politicians from BOTH sides of the aisle have eagerly exploited for the PR points.

Because who wouldn’t want to help addicts who so obviously became addicted ThRoUgH nO fAuLt Of ThEiR oWn?

The reality is that in almost every case of overdose, at least one other substance was involved, or the user had otherwise failed to take as directed — if they were even using these meds under a doctor’s’ supervision. And many of them weren’t.

it’s scary enough to face the prospect of socialized medicine, and what would happen to me if my cancer should return.  I underwent a series of unconventional surgeries that would certainly NOT have been covered under any government plan.

But I at least had opioids to manage my pain — which was so intense that they had to dose me even as I slept.  The recovery was brutal. Withdrawal from the intravenous dilaudid to get back on to tramadal truly sucked — every time.

The aftermath hasn’t been easy. Since my pain medication was cut in half, I went from being able to perform activities that most people take for granted — shopping, driving, keeping up with friends — to being housebound.

But what truly terrifies me is the prospect of the cancer returning, the government dictating my course of treatment and the extent to which I am deemed worthy of pain management.
