What to do when the only one left is YOU
MinsElessMinsE posted:
What is there to do when the only one who you yourself can trust is you? Could sound a bit perplex or even far fetched, but it is not. I had a hidden injury surface @ two years after the birth of our second son and diagnosis and treatment had been performed by a number of physicians and specialists for ailments other than the one causing the ones treated. I had done everything right - communicated, asked questions, and followed up according to recommendations by treating physicians. The otherwise assumption that "it would all just go away" had far too rapidly become a major problem in which I have yet to be provided truth in medicine. I would like to consider it a "truth in lending" sort when I view albums of the deliveries; however, not everyone would agree with my view. For a number of years I questioned why I was overwhelmed with such sicknesses from common allergies, high-risk pregnancies, slow loss of feeling in appendages, limbs, etc. and losing consciousness unexpectedly while performing daily tasks. I could not understand what it was that I had "encountered" that would cause a usually-treatable condition under any other circumstance. I supposed we were not just any other circumstance. I would also like to think and relay that the conditions were only with me, the birthing parent directly inflicted by injury, but I would be selfish in accepting that as truth. It has taken me too long and I have used too much of my own earnings to attempt resolution for this grave mass compilation of silent killing. Truth is, when you enter the location in place to serve a function and their duty bylaw is to perform in such a manner as to provide accurate directives not to impose a greater risk to the patient or others - whether of relation or not. This has grown to be such a problem for me that I am now needing to administer narcotic medications (in which I had once been against using to cover up my ailment). This has all progressed to be a result of ignorance and blind stupor by ones who are not allowed to behave in such a manner - and they continue to get away scott free - unscaved - not even one blemish. Disclosure is a must. For all members for which this has caused such adversity. Can one tell me how it is to be that when this has been carried forth in record keeping that the identities of the ones affected by these acts have and are not being withheld or protected? One would think that there would be a follow up or courtesy call or visit placed to insure the proper methods and channels had been notified. For years I had suffered emotionally from the lack of responsibility, for years I had suffered expenses for unnecessary medical treatments (as well as the children brought into and spouse as well), and it is not getting any better - only worse. I cannot even so much as breathe without another part of my body internally wanting to shut down. Our homes' securuties had been compromised with the responsive so motivated to say that it was community property (how would they ever acquire homeowner status), our professional lives have ceased to exist whether it be from opinions enforced by way of audibility by those who have been made familiar to Employment and Civil Laws (let alone Ethical and Moral) yet seemingly "forgot" to exercise proper conduct at all times as agreed upon, and the relationships with family members and confidants have, for the most part, ceased to exist. Assistance to rectify and serve has been completely been unavailable and by those who must do so and when I have to show face, it is apparently perceived as a bluff to others who are selected to CARE.

Frankly, I do not see how I have not proceeded to take matters into my own hands and honestly, that is how I feel they get away with it for so long. For me, as one who had not sought justice for so long, how many others are there experiencing the same unethical and inhumane treatment? How is it that "conveniently" all the money is unavailable for expenditures to acquire proper and lawful protection? And when I have mentioned protection, how right is it for someone to "accuse" the injured as mentally unfit or a criminal so that the acquisition of personally selected protection is unattainable? Yeah. This is me. I have lost My Everything (M.E.). Tell me why and how I go about regaining what is still mine. I would continue; however, I have probably placed too much out there.

Wishing everyone a steadfast recovery in this conscious effort to annhilate the stupidity in our only forms of HELP WE HAVE AVAILABLE
