Revisiting my lost blog

Posted in Uncategorized on March 1, 2011 by icangel

I had completely forgotten about this blog until my e-mail alerted me to a new comment. So much has changed in the past few years. And while all the information I’ve posted has it’s place, I made a decision to turn away from western medicine and added a more Eastern approach to my daily life. I became so fed up with this one sided view of how the body works from the perspective that the physical is just the physical. Nothing any doctor offered me fixed the problem to my standards. I thought…there must be something more out there. This can’t be it?? It wasn’t.

I’ve always relied on both eastern and western points of view but deciding to journey away from our medical system and turn fully twords an eastern approach has changed my life for the better. No more daily medications. I do sometimes use a sleep aid as having to get up numerous times a night to use the bathroom gets exhausting, but the pains not there. There are days when I don’t feel as well as others. I still get tired, and if I eat something that’s a big no-no like hot sauce there can be some pain…but I’ve learned how to feel it differently.

More to come as I have to get ready for work. Yes…work. Work that involves constant physical labor. I never thought I’d be able to work like this again. I’ve taken back my life. I refuse to let my bladder rule my day. I’ve had to start over from the beginning but I’d rather be at a more healthy, pain free beginning than stuck in a cycle of suffering I can’t control.


The diffrence the internet can make

Posted in Daily issues, Uncategorized on June 15, 2008 by icangel

For the past few years alot of people have had to listen to me complain about the continued rise of technology doing alot of nothing.  Looking at those rants from the perpective of a daily internet user, I can see all my technology issues stemmed from the medical field.  The over used example of putting a man on the moon has been a favorite of mine.  There are people living on this very earth who have stepped onto a different planet and been able to feel our worlds advances beneth there feet.  Yet no one can fix my bladder.  When you think of modern day technology, all we can do and all that is on the horizon, it is popusterous that medical advances are unable to repair or reverse peoples suffering. That view of course leads right to possible spiritual or religious reasons for suffering. But although I often vere off topic and end up losing place of my origional point, I may defenitly add my probable spiritual reasons in another post.  But then there are all those PC views and topics I hate to avoid but have been so wisley taught to keep to myself.  I ask…whats the fun of keeping quite in my own blog. 

At least I havent sufferend long enough or become bitter enough as to start thinking consiracy theories…Since meeting a variety of different people who have been in pain for decades, many have become bitter to medical care and start to believe that there DR’s are only out for money and could care less as to fix the problem…presribing medication for pain brings in more money. I dont buy it…Yet.
