4/18/2008: Anyone who has ever worked closely with loved ones who believe in only alternative blood therapy: ie: no blood at all to be used; realizes and has to accept that we are viewed by others in the World of Medicine and Politics and General Public, as persons to be wary of and even considered dangerous and extremely stupid-AND we must realize that this is because they stand United to protect their stance of Pro-Blood use.
There are many in the practice of Law that will pursue Doctors, Nurses, and, Midwives, anyone they can cause problems for, that support the practice of NoBlood with any medical health problem. We have to remember that first and foremost, We are American Citizens and are protected by Our American Federal Constitutional Rights. It is true that any hospital can administer blood to us anyway, by finding someone or a court that will accept the responsibility for the patient-and that is our responsibility to consider and prepare ourself for, when No-Blood products don't work, that is exactly what many hospitals have done.
Many Doctors that work with religious groups that don't accept blood transfutions will tell us that they won't let any blood be given to us, but, I have personally known of situations that were out of everyone's hands, and, Doctors who claimed to be fighters for us, just handed the Person over for a blood transfusion. Just prepare yourself for any situation.
Recently I found myself in a situation that I didn't snd still don't have enough support for, it took my Daughter by surprise and she was barely able to contend with the expected emergency problems. In the emergency room recently, 3 vials of blood were taken from me, yet, when I asked for a carboxy-hemoglobin to check for blood gases, (we have lived through at least 4 fires in our area), the doctor refused. So, with all the signs of dehydration and severe, constant pain I have still been going through, I have no blood-gas to start a foundation with for this problem.IAlthough I was taken there by ambulance 911, I was given no iv's through the entire problem. They treated me like I was faking for a fix-the doctor had the audacity to say I was "hostile" because of the way I sounded when I asked him for a second opinion-which he refused. Ever been in such severe pain you have to struggle to push words out? Doesn't sound pretty but it ISN'T hostility-They marked a box with the word "Psych" and "Suicide" as well! I am upset and scared. The doctor told me that I didn't have anything but constipation when my xray showed heart enlargement with aorta appearing "tortuous": Impression: Constipation, cardiomegaly, yet, he only told me constipation. My bloodwork, which he altered, showed infection, yet he never told me or prescribed an anti-biotic.(WBC:13.5)with a high platelet count and lowered RDW-CV (12.5) with Neut ABS#9.7 (High) . I also havea a 1 cm. cyst on my Liver. I have been waking up with severe spasms of my calves, all the way to my thigh in my right leg. I can't stay still for a few minutes due to the pain, without wiggling around and/or crying out in pain. It goes away at times but that is only because I have been under treatment by a Neurologist that has me under prescription for pain management already. Previous to this event, which began on 4/13/2008, I had weaned myself to not using the pain medication but maybe 1-2 times a day or every other day, and no muscle relaxant, and ibuprofen (pretty regular). I was active, contented, and began a job recently. Now, I am on all three medications and have to be careful because the pain is so constant, it makes me want to take more. I have extreme gas at both ends and the symptoms are like a gall bladder attack only I have no gall bladder, Dr.Ron Lapin, noblood pioneer surgeried that out in the 70's. I have alot of swelling in my abdomen but I think it is the gas. I know Loma Linda is connected to this because they have their name on my entrance papers. My Daughter's co-worker is also a student at Loma Linda and has called to talk also. I don't approve of forced research, I don't know how I can even determine if they have me on someone's list there, unless they have public disclosures somewhere. If anyone knows about that, please leave me a note here or send a private email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone of us that even posts a word on this web-site are watched by those that hate persons who don't take blood transfusions-and-we MUST stand United, as a support for each other.
Part of this is venting over the situation I just experienced, does anyone else have anything to say on this subject? Some encouragement would be welcome, I am worn out from the pain. 21st Century-Delores Doyle. end message.
