A Softer Way of Life

We chose
loam over concrete.

Cement demands
buildings and governments,
arguments and reporters
from the New York Times.

Childhood trauma leads to lifelong chronic illness — so why isn’t the medical community helping patients?

ACEs Too High

ADonnaDadWhen I was twelve, I was coming home from swimming at my neighbor’s dock when I saw an ambulance’s flashing lights in our driveway. I still remember the asphalt burning my feet as I stood, paralyzed, and watched the paramedics take away my father. It was as if I knew those flashing lights were a harbinger that my childhood was over.

At the hospital, a surgeon performed “minor” elective bowel surgery on my young dad. The surgeon made an error, and instead of my father coming home to the “welcome home” banners we’d painted, he died.

The medical care system failed my father miserably. Then the medical care system began to fail me.

At fourteen, I started fainting. The doctors implied I was trying to garner attention. In college I began having full seizures. I kept them to myself, fearful of seeming a modern Camille. I’d awaken on the floor drenched…

Drug Companies & Doctors: A Story of Corruption

AntiCorruption Society

Dr. Marcia Angell, nybooks.com
June 15, 2009

Recently Senator Charles Grassley, ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, has been looking into financial ties between the pharmaceutical industry and the academic physicians who largely determine the market value of prescription drugs. He hasn’t had to look very hard.

Take the case of Dr. Joseph L. Biederman, professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and chief of pediatric psycho-pharmacology at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital. Thanks largely to him, children as young as two years old are now being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and treated with a cocktail of powerful drugs, many of which were not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for that purpose and none of which were approved for children below ten years of age.

Legally, physicians may use drugs that have already been approved for a particular purpose for any other purpose they choose, but such…

TheProudPapa-Accused of around 20 molestationsin the last 20 years-Never a consequence -Nowliving large on an early paid retiremnt for his efforts…wow.

I wonder If He knows that there actually is a God and he will actually have to face him? How could he believe in God? Seriously..

Well I was hoping the media would be the ones to break this ugly news, but everyone’s time is now up. I wont sit back and be quiet when I know the sickening things that you all do before and after”confession” and whenever else you are busy chasing altar boys around in the back somewhere. So time is all I got and since the law over your way isn’t interested yet, I thought maybe some thorough details would be in order.

Hmm. Where shall I start? Its 2015, I get information that the very same ” Father” that molested my very own brother…

Book Covers and Vegetables

Truth! A good cover sometimes covers up things just like makeup!

Richard Rensberry, Author at QuickTurtle Books

screen shot Wake Helps 2

I know my vegetables because I grew up on a farm that raised them. I planted them, nurtured them, picked them and ate them. A good vegetable has a distinct complexion, aroma, color and appearance that speaks quite eloquently. When I see one I know it, but it is rarely in a grocery store. The grocery store vegetables are bred and judged on qualities that are not natural to a vegetable. A hard, juiceless tomato is a good grocery store tomato because it withstands abuse, and because it is picked and shipped green and then forced ripened it lacks a good tomato’s flavor and vitality. It is an anemic mutant of what a real tomato should be. I won’t eat it.

Abilities and Skills

When it comes down to correctly observing people’s abilities and skills, it takes an exact science to do so.  It takes seeing things as they are and not as we would like or not like them to be.  This observation should not be clouded over by prejudices or pre-conceived ideas, wouldn’t you think?

As one’s ability to control one’s environment declines so in exact ratio his confidence wanes.  When one has all the data to hand, one can make good calculations about the forthcoming day, his friends and acquaintances, and his future.

One of the things processing does in Self-Analysis by L. Ron Hubbard, is that it brings more pleasure and less pain to one’s life.  It frees up the individual to compute more rationally.

Do a little search here, read about The Goal of Life and grab you a book today.  It’s a start!
