the horrors of modern medicine

pharmaceutical companies and doctors joining forces to turn people into addicts and shorten their lives.

The only kind of doctor I’ll go to is a dentist and even good dentists ruined my bite with ill placed crowns. If I catch corona, which I probably won’t because I’m a freakin hermit, but if I did I’d rather die than go on a ventilator.

As always, feel free to opine.

  1. I’ve been pretty lucky with doctors, especially the surgeon who made my right shoulder all good again. But I’ve had some I didn’t get along with too, and the only solution is to dump them and keep looking. At least none so far have done major damage.

  2. Ever hear the old joke that the operation was a success but the patient died? Yeah .. a really great doctor is a precious gift. If you’re lucky enough to find one, don’t let go I have one daughter-in-law who’s a nurse and another is a doctor who specializes in making chemo for cancer patients. I consult them before reaching out to a doctor; they’re incredibly knowledgeable and I trust them with my life. My thinking on CV: a mask is a hell of a lot more comfortable than a ventilator. Wear one!

    1. Thanks so much for your thoughts, Nancy! My sister was a nurse and she died from cancer. I’m kind of angry about it so I should probably not talk about that. She was 63. A mask is good. I have to wear one to shop but not on the trail. I don’t see crowds of people on my path and the people I pass aren’t wearing masks either. I’m not worrying about it too much.
