Attention All MedicoGeeks like me…

The medical equivalent of Edward Snowden is here and she’s illegally leaking all these unpublished research studies and their findings. Her thought on it is they get grants so why shouldn’t we benefit from her info?

 

Sci-Hub is her site. She’s on trial. Imagine, all the stuff we’ve Googled over the years that we’ve never been able to get ….apparently she’s leaked nearly a million studies…going back decades of course.

Catastrophic level of Traffic for many reasons, Margaritaville resort being just one

margaritaville

 

It’s so bad I even read the newspaper in traffic. I have low back problems and after sitting in the chair writing, I get up to get moving, get out of the house, try to get distracted (this is after all my pilates mat, hamstring stretching, deep breathing and mindfulness meditation) I get in my car and boom, it’s a bottleneck, everwhere. I live on the coastal road, “Ocean Drive” and There’s a brand new Jimmy Buffet “Margaritaville” resort in what used to be our town square, main access to the beach and on the beach concert hall. New highrises have risen. It’s tourist season. It’s raining. But worse, there is construction everywhere. Why during tourist season? Because during hurricane season it wouldn’t be convenient for them. I wish every decision in life was that easy.margaritaville

Big Secret on a superior yet super restricted way to manage chronic pain suboxone questions?

Cuba here are some ideas on handling side effects of pain meds and some stuff I do to relieve pain other than just pills. You might find some of this helpful but I have questions too about pain management I hope someone can answer. I’m up against it. And the CDC is tightening up again. Friggin alcohol kills more people. No one is addressing the pain problem driving people to the pills in the first place.

Don’t get wrong idea…I’m on anti-inflammatory diet, alkalizing supplements, do pilates class, pilates at home on the mat, drink tons of water, get other types of exercise, use the non narcotic pain patch and anti inflammatory alcohol based tonic called Pennsaid before laying down on a bag of ice.

HERE ARE MY QUESTIONS…DOES ANYONE KNOW?

I’d like to change to suboxone because the big secret is that it works for more than just opiate cessation, it helps the pain. The bioavailability is such that you can get by on really really low doses. lower doses than a transfer chart would suggest!!!!! But doctors are limited to only having 100 pain patients on Suboxone. WHY? Does anyone know?

I read yesterday that Obama is pushing to raise that limit to 200 per doctor to deal with the heroin epidemic and pain pill problem.

Can anyone answer some of these questions for me or offer insight into suboxone for pain management?  If they cut me off, I’ll have to visit Mexico and Cuba after all. Even though Cuba will be open for cruise voyages on May 1, I wasn’t planning on going because I already live at the beach and drive an old car. hehe

Dr Houry at CDC Just ‘cuz it’s not cancer doesn’t mean it’s not serious pain

 

I have chronic pain, bipolar disorder, the Parkinson’s like side effect of tardive dyskinesia, which compounds my back pain problem. You try to live with that. Just because it’s not cancer doesn’t mean it’s not serious. If Medicare would just pay for the Coolief Radiofrequency cooled nerve ablation throughout my lumbar spine nerve branch block, I would be pain free for a year or more. I had the test for it.

I had three days of complete pain relief and went into automatic detox.But like they say on the radio: “This is only a Test.” They were just looking to see if they could isolate and numb the nerve for a few days to see if I’m a candidate for this painful process. I AM. But Medicare will not pay for it. No Prior Authorization nothing. And there are new research papers on studies that prove new technology has been effective for up to 80% of people for a year or more in a recent study. I need this procedure. I can’t bear the side effects of the pain meds or the pain itself,. Please, someone up there, hear me. I hurt. Let me heal. Burn my nerves. Buy me some more time.

 

The test alone cost 300 out of pocket. Medicare will not cover Coolief.  The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta says “No pain meds unless you have Cancer.”

Ok. Whatever. I’m in too much pain to fight you.. But believe me. I’m not going away. God has seen to that. I don’t know exactly why but he has. Or she has. allicat

Cash In Hand Egyptian Mercedes Benz customer makes commotion & gets spread in NYT Y is this weird/

Any time I see something about the Middle East I read it. We as a country and especially me, have known so little for so long. I can’t wait to read Anna Secor’s “Children of Paradise” out of Iran. But this one was classic. As you know, Saudi Petrobucks have all but dried up. They used to send Egypt billions but now can’t afford to. To finish Egypt’s ecomony out was the disastrous shooting of the Russian Bound plane from the Red Sea out of the sky. They have lost 1.5 billion or more in tourodollars.

But the poor can’t even afford cooking oil or bread and it gets no play, none of our attention. Then a young, entitled wealthy guy goes into dealership to find his model is not available to drive out that day.

He gets a three page spread in the front Section of The New York Times….now tell me, what stunt do I have to pull to get that kind of fame and attention?mercedes

WP keeps screwing up… Let’s see if they can get this post right. You just never know w/some people

One thing about Allison Strong….she refuses to disappear because she has more problems than we’re comfortable with.

She spoke out when………The one person whose job it was to listen tuned out her every word!

She’s been warned by her good friend T to stop being pushy but old habits die hard. (That’s why the therapy)! 

She lives for clicks, shares, likes, nonlikes…  Sadly,  the primal, reflexive movement of your wrist is the yardstick she’s measured by …….well we all know about that.  

Her Article about the deaf therapist is now on bphope.com’s facebook page. Will ya click to let her know she’s still alive? She’ll repay the favor and then some, even if she has to hunt you down! Not really.

Allison Strong is a former alternative disc jockey and music journalist who lives in Hollywood, Florida and hopes for a couple of clicks outside of her zipcode. We found her in a feral writer’s community.. begging for replies to her wordpress blogs from, “Bipolar Strength: Rebel With A Cause” bipolarbrainiac.wordpress.com. Believe her when she tells you she’ll hunt you down and return the favor.
