On Being Stoned!

Monday, November 05, 2012

We can throw stones, complain about them, stumble on them, climb over them, or build with them.

Lazy Days

Sunday, November 04, 2012

Yesterday was a day of vegging out in front of the TV and watching football, football, football. It was the first Saturday since mid-August when we did not have at least five youth football games, maybe a softball game, a soccer game and maybe a college football game on the agenda. I know, it's more football but it did not involve a comprehensive tour of our county to attend each of the games. Yesterday I did NOTHING! But when I got up this morning, I noticed that I had not finished so I intend to do nothing again today and try to get it done.

Make today a great day!

Gout Sucks!

Saturday, November 03, 2012

I have been pestered by gout for about the past twenty years. Usually when I feel the first twinges, a super dose of Ibuprophen will stave off the attack. Last Saturday, as I arrived at the pre-game tailgate, I felt the first twinges and went to the mobile pharmacy in the console of my car and low and behold, no Ibuprophen. By the time the tailgate was over the game was over and I had driven home, I was behind the curve and could not catch up with the pain. Monday morning I went to the doctor. The doctor I used to go to treated the source and gave me a steroid shot and the pain subsided in about three hours. My new doctor treated the symptoms and gave me an NSAID for the pain. It is Saturday again and the pain is still here. We need more doctors like Gregory House and my old doc who treat the cause and not the symptoms. I know, the title says "Gout Sucks!" but the gist of it is that a health care system that is based on the principle of make the symptom go away, get your fee, and clear out the treatment room for the next patient is what really sucks. There, I have spoken

    Oh boy, and you have spoken the truth!!!! Functional medicine is a newer area of medicine that focuses exactly on what you're talking about . . . treating the root causes of the problems . . . NOT just making the symptoms go away.

Wishing you good luck with the gout. It really does suck!

Make Today a Great Day!

Friday, November 02, 2012

A couple or three decades ago, people started saying "Have a nice day" this has now degenerated into "have a gut 'un" The trouble with these is that they presuppose that the day is there for you to have. While this is partially true, you have control over the day which is why I sign off all of my blog comments

Make Today a Great Day!

Define Yourself!

Thursday, November 01, 2012

Who you are right now, or at any one moment of your lifetime, does not define who you are as a person. You—and only you--can change your life today.

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start.
~Nido Qubein

Be yourself! No one else can do it for you!

    Change can and will happen if you strive to do so.

    Definitely! Our past may influence who we are today, but doesn't dictate who we are.
