I am pissed, well truly disappointed in healthcare in America

2021-01-29T10:20:20-07:00Categories: Cancer daze, Current diet, my bullshit, Richard life pages|

Ok, so I have been having these health issues for quite sometime.  I have been to the Emergency room 4 times  with heart problem, well they did not find anything, but my  chest had been feeling very uneasy, with dizzy spells and just lethargic at time. I drink coffee by the gallon. they have said on several occasions, I have a slow heart beat, I just have not felt right, but the soldier that I am keep powering through, I mean I can work and hike all day no problem, but when I am at rest, is when it gets bad, so I had been thinking all in my head,  but even when working, i had neck spasms, that were debilitating, one time up on a beam, [...]

Medical Minutiae, wading through the swamp

2020-12-28T13:27:12-07:00Categories: Cancer daze, Current diet|

Well my latest battle wages on. I have some appointments with the Mayo, find out what is going on. I suspect that it is my thyroid failing from the radiation, as it is one of the things to look out for and can effect multiple systems. Last year answer and ad on facebook after going through a sickly patch, and they diagnosed me with hyperthyroidism, so I started working on my diet, to see If I could treat it, My internet docktor (me) did all the research, finding helpful foods and foods to avoid. but the old ticker, kept bugging me, well in my chest area, already dealing with gerd, damn cheese, love the stuff, but the days of eating big hunks of it are over. [...]

food? Medicine? Drugs? or all?

that is a good question, in my uneducated opinion it is all 3, I have battled weight issues since the early 90's, having no clue about what foods to eat, well in those days, it was anything and everything, not too many things this chap, would not stuff down his gullet. my drug use throughout my life time was mostly limited to alcohol, except for the  occasional pot, coke, lsd about 5 times, angel dust about 10 times, and some mushrooms, I can honestly say that I had never been hooked on any of them, except the booze, loved the booze, it was medicine. that is how I felt normal, and that was rare, I never really felt normal, until I did the 12 steps and [...]

7 day fast, brutal but GOOD

2020-12-24T18:29:59-07:00Categories: Cancer daze, Current diet|

yesterday, was the end of a 7 day fast, I was feeling sickly again, I had been consuming too many calories, I was really feeling bad, last time, I went to the ER, but they did not find anything major. This time, as with last I started fasting, but this time was a little scarier, as I did go into the hospital. I have been using fasting as cutting weight since about 1998, which was my first time after reading the Atkins book, There I learned about Keto and Ketosis, which is the best way to cut weight for healthy people, but I was not feeling healthy. Everytime I have done this fasting I have improved my methods as Information on the internet has improved. The [...]

December is cold, well relative speaking…

2020-12-20T12:17:50-07:00Categories: Current diet|

Every Winter eye struggle with weight gain, do you? this year is no exception, I am doing ok, but I am definitely feeling the effects of the dark and cold winter months, relatively speaking of course, when you go from 110 to 55 in 40 days, it is a shock to the od system, I have lived in cold places, but I am acclimated to the desert weather. anyway, I have created another family tree website, got it started anyway. hopefully I can get it up and running and shared soon.

well I have been feeling out of sorts lately, perhaps it is working in 100 degree heat all day, or eggs, I have been eating soft poached boiled eggs, I learned to like these my sister tammie, used to make them all the time, when we were a team back in Bothell, not sure if it the heat, eggs, or the extra fruit I have been ingesting, we are what we eat, I do think, I was having some kind of hormone problem, I was trying to eat things that got me out of it, not sure if it was my diet, I seem to be getting better, hopefully. time to read about luigi cornaro

Happy hungry sunday, yes getting used to being hungry

2020-12-20T17:04:47-07:00Categories: Current diet, Richard|

just got back from the store, went to sprouts, such nice food, got some split pea and some other beans. healthy living, they even have the nuts pre-packaged in one pound bags, no more free labor :/ The steaks look good, but kinda spendy for what looks like commercial packaged stuff, from who knows where? when? ended up going to fry, but even the great deals of yesteryear are long gone, opted for some cheap flank steaks, hoping Jt can pull off one of his chef tricks. I have energy and full of piss and vinegar, with intermittent hunger pangs, best to stay busy, at least mind busy. I feel like my body is healing, except for that pesky prostate, such is life... almost a little amusing [...]
