Some of what Gilbert K. Chesterton says:
"To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it."
"I agree with the realistic Irishman who said he preferred to prophesy after the event."  (Happy St. Patrick's Day!)
"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."
"War is not 'the best way of settling differences; it is the only way of preventing their being settled for you."
"If there were no God, there would be no atheists."
"Once abolish the God, and the government becomes the God."
"Men are ruled, at this minute by the clock, by liars who refuse them news, and by fools who cannot govern."
"He is a very shallow critic who cannot see an eternal rebel in the heart of a conservative."
"You can never have a revolution in order to establish a democracy. You must have a democracy in order to have a revolution."
"A citizen can hardly distinguish between a tax and a fine, except that the fine is generally much lighter."
"Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable."
"There are some desires that are not desirable."
"Fallacies do not cease to be fallacies because they become fashions."
"Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. In practice it means that hardly anybody is allowed to mention it."

I am more than willing to try anything new right now. My doctors are weaning me off the Lyrica because the tender aching joints throughout my body may be a side effect. I have put up with other unpleasantries just for the mobility, but this has just been too much for me  and I can't take having inflamation in all my joints on top of the Fibromyalgia is reducing me to tears. So I've got an open mind on anything else they want to add to the mix if it means I can walk up the stairs instead of crawling up them.

Cymbalta is slowly kicking in; my ankles and legs don't swell up as much now. I don't miss the mini--convulsions, but my mobility is slower coming back...not helped by a nicely entrenched sinus/ear infection my former family doctor thought I'd be better off "Trying to fight off myself". Right--why ELSE  would I have gone there for? After the partner at that location once again ignored my husband, she told him some things our son told her IN CONFIDENCE. Then she told my son to "suck up" his bronchitis and he'd be fine working with food. He's not a child--and not her patient now. I got him into someone else and we've all switched. They are closer and really on the ball.


  He was more caring in 1 visit than I've gotten in years. He BELIEVED me when I told him that the sweating I get when I'm feverish is different than my hot flashes.  After 43 years, the phrase "Oh, DRY UP!!" pretty much sums up my feelings about the whole deal.


I'm just glad that the switch has been made. After 20years, I did tell my doctor why we were leaving. The first time I saw my doctor, she told me that anything my child told her in confidence she wouldn't tell me. I was fine with it; she wasn't real thrilled about her partner, but it isn't my problem anymore.

Hi am new to the forum here. Am not new to pain and suffering.  Not at all. I have a morphine pump inplanted and a stimulator inplanted,,, and waiting on second stimulator to be inplanted.  Was in severe semi accident 11 yrs ago,,, with all the surgies that has left my body totally disabled.  Know and fully understand what you are saying about drs. after moving  to Texas two yrs ago,,,, am still in shock  total shock,,,, about the different dr. treatments and understanding.. And am really feeling abused after learning new things this week,,, about drs treatment in Nebraska that I had to deal with.   After all the 300 mile trips to Omaha,,,, and nothing being done except scripts for more and more meds to keep me in brain fog,,, and   deep brain fog,,,, want to scream and  really pray that the drs have nothing put on them that they put on me,,,,  am still having side affects even after being off them for two yrs. what a mess that we can make of ourselves with drs not listening to us.  Having a dr say ,,,, that sure makes sense and this is what we can do ,,,,,, sure can make a different world for us in  so so so so so many different ways one cannot begin to count them all.  We have to know that our faith in God will carry us through the hard times as well as the good times.  AND that our faith,,,,, is built on the Spirit that calls us into believing in the one true God.   As I am learning to speak out about my faith and belief in God. And know that this is going to be even new experience of growing for me also.  Thanks for being here. Hope that this helps in some small way.
