I have so much on my to do list it isn't even funny! We're listing our house this week (with hopes of buying an acreage nearby) and I'm trying to get our house a little more "show" ready. Not an easy task! So perhaps when things are a little more caught up in the getting-house-ready-on-top-of-all-my-other-tasks department my brain will be able to focus on another blog post!
In the meantime I just want to be clear about something.
I'm not against doctors. I understand that there is a great need for them and their knowledge. I understand that they may help in saving my life, or the life of someone I love, one day. I understand that vaccinations may have their place. I understand (as best I can as someone who has never experienced it) that epidemics are scary and not worth repeating, that anything we can do to help prevent them is worth pursuing.
But there is more than one side to every story and vaccinations and the prescription drugs don't come without a price. Doctors are not all knowing and they make mistakes. The medical system as a whole is very short sighted when it comes to living healthy (they may tell you to stop smoking but they'll feed you a ton of dangerously unhealthy food in the hospital). I have been in a place where I was told TR would always be on prescription drugs and even those would likely not be enough to help him fully. I have been in a place where all my trust in their words was broken when changing our diet made it possible for TR to be off all prescription drugs and in a ton less pain than before (I wouldn't say his colitis is healed, but he doesn't experience the pain from flare ups like before).
I say all that to say this. I am very strongly opinionated when it comes to doctors and the health care system. I have begun to question everything that they say. I think that with that comes the likelihood that I may offend somebody. I hope that if that is the case you will forgive me.
