Sometimes my threads go straight to hell in a handbasket right from the beginning.

This reminds me of the sad tragedy of ANDY WARHOL, who I saw a few times in my life. Although it was not a actual belief, he had a terrible fear of hospitals, it lead to his death at a early age.That was truly preventable.. My theory is if you have to go to the hospital go to the hospital, but if is possible try not to stay there too long. Because I do believe you can sometimes get worse there.


That's entirely likely. As a nurse, myself, I have seen many people develop bedsores in hospitals, simply because the staff don't reposition them often enough to avoid it. There are also a lot of UTI's (Urinary Tract Infections) from the use of foley catheters.

Likewise, there are a lot of MRSA and Staphylococcus infections likely to happen in hospitals, chiefly due to impaired immune systems vulnerable to them. (This is one reason why so many hospitals seem so cold, particularly operating rooms; they keep the temp low to discourage the growth of bacteria. Wonderful...)

The medical profession has even coined a word for such hospital-induced infections: "nosocomial," meaning acquired in the hospital.

Now isn't that resourceful?

(True story: I actually attended a patient tonight, who, on being discharged from the hospital, had his foley catheter removed, but the hospital staff person didn't adequately deflate the balloon, and consequently the man began bleeding profusely, and they still sent him home, instead of doing something about it! When asked what she should do, they told his wife to "put Neosporin on it." I sincerely hope she's considering consulting a lawyer. Luckily, I was able to place another catheter, before the urethra closed off from the clots.)

And how did you spend your Tuesday night, my boys?

^ No wonder some people are bloody scared to go into hospital.

So, go the hospital and get checked out...and maybe die, OR, stay at home, ignore all medical attention and probably die. The choice...is yours! smile

Overall, depending on the relative stupidity of your local hospital, if you are spitting up blood, it is best advised to go to the hospital.

TO ADO- yes, overall I agree with you.But sadly in this world nothing is guaranteed .Just like the slot machines. Life is so often a gamble.

I heartily agree. Some things just won't "go away."

Sadly, apparently, it's mostly men who are afraid of healthcare in general, and hospitals in particular. No matter their background, ethnicity, orientation, whatever, most men do not want to deal with health issues that require anything more than taking Tylenol.

(Although, there's another quirk. In my over 20 years of work in healthcare, there is a frequent warning not to take more than 3,000 mg. of Tylenol per day, to avoid liver damage. So, of course, all these people stuck on painkillers, most of which include Tylenol, gobble them down, irregardless. Go figure.)

I mean, why go to a hospital if you can just pop pills?

"Maybe some people need to watch Fahrenheit 451 again?"

OK, Ado.
That's IT for you, fella.
NOW you've gone and offended everybody who likes BOOKS!

big grin

And, by the way, I happen to be an author.
I wrote a book which was released nationally last month.
It's all about my CHRISTIAN FAITH!
Check it out at www.tatepublishing.com "The Power Right Under Your Nose".

OK, you can take me away now, Mr. Hardcastle…

big grin

Glad you have smile in there, yeah, I am on the side of the books. I just think that PC has become so very very fashionable, and is cloaked under "sophistication - stepping closer to censorship of ideas and speech. I really liked 451, such a lovely score too BTW. Very well, I will look up your book, and BTW -

How dare you mention faith!
Off to the dungeon with you.

It's so easy to cite political correctness -- you have REPEATEDLY done so when you again and again made dismissive comments that may be offensive to gays, or, in the case of my thread on the terrific group Boyzone, singlehandedly changed it from a rather innocuous discussion about the energetic musical group into, essentially, your belief that few heterosexuals care for boy bands. (So what???) And in the case of the opera version of "Brokeback Mountain," you brought a dismissive negativity to it that turned it into something it wasn't until you just had to change the subject. And now, once again, you trot out your PC diatribe, as if those criticizing you were going out of their way to find anything approaching political incorrectness in what you wrote. Not true, Ado, because in each instance my objection (and the objections by others) had nothing whatsoever to do with political correctness! And in the case of this one, it was YOU who brought religion into the discussion, which was obviously a violation of FSM's Rule 2 about our NOT discussing religion (you went out of your way to write that Jim Henson's death was preventable had he not been a Christian Scientist, which I think most would agree took this discussion over the abyss and into religion). And I think you should save your comments about censorship for FSM in case they ever notice what you've been posting the past few weeks. Don't forget:

(2) No political or religious discussion. I see nothing ambiguous about that and one isn't a PC stickler to point it out.

It's nothing to do with PC. It's a simple and reasonable rule to avoid nasty arguments here. No religious discussion. No political discussion.

Since this thread seems to be nothing more than arguing, I see no need for it to continue. Play nice, people.
