Time to fire up one.....I don't have a lot to rant about tonight but who knows what the next few weeks will bring....I figure this is as good of a time as any
Actually I do have a method to my madness tonight....I had an acquaintance point out that everything that I posted on the internet on this board can be found by typing "tinmantu" into www.google.com ....it doesn't bother me but instead it allows me to use this site to maybe allow google to get a message out to the masses of people that I never imagined were in search until recently
Man that stuff does indeed have a bite to it.....thanks for getting me addicted jc ;) At any rate, I posted a while back about the friend I had known for a few years finding me on the internet after 3 yrs of not even knowing if one another was still around...well the story has taken a bit of a turn that I never expected....I just hope that if the moderators check this thread out that they will realize that I am not pimping a site to take away viewers from here, I am just taking advantage of the search engine capability for others that may be looking for the same help as she was and it just "might" save someones life
The following is a link that I am sure that nobody here has any need for, I am just using this for my own purposes to allow someone that may type in RSD or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy into the google search engine.....my friend has this infliction, it has been misdiagnosed for the last 6 months and now it's unbelievable that from the articles and input from others that I read that we have soooo many fugging quacks in this country.....European nations seem to have more knowledge than us about this disease
This all came to a head last weekend.....my dear friend "Dorothy" had been diagnosed with RSD 2 weeks prior and was getting the run around about seeing a pain specialist...those that have any knowledge about RSD know exactly the kind of pain I am talking about....those that don't (as I was a month ago) can't realize that suicide is very possible with RSD patients......I have spent literally hours on the phone the last 7 days making sure that this woman knows that she is indeed important and that there is no way that I am going to allow her to take her life...including threating to call back in 3 hrs and calling 911 in her city if she doesnt answer....this isn't a pretty disease.....there is no cure....but there is hope
In my plight to find ANYTHING to give this woman a will to live, I had to do extensive search engine searches to find this site....it should have been at the top of the page but it wasn't...... for RSD or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy support groups go here >>> http://brain.hastypastry.net/forums/forumdisplay.php?s=&daysprune=&f=221

Next time the kitty doesn't hit the cat box or the old BM doesn't come out like you would prefer, things could be a hell of a lot worse....I admire these people on this site so much that the words are indescribabl
ummmm...not possible to explain?....yeah, that's the same thing but with fewer spelling errors....lol....god you people are lucky that it's late and I am the only one on to rant
I have created a monster!
interesting information, Tinman. You are the kind of friend everyone hopes to have.
If you want real paranoia, google your phone number. By the way, is anyone here investing in google?
heh....yep, see what you started jc?.....But I am a good monster most of the time. :)
My very best wishes to your friend, Tinmantu. You are very dear... Tell her others are here wishing her the best.
(P.S. You stay up way too late for me!)
I'm sure that she sends her thanks to you Walks and everyone else....she lurks here occasionally because she enjoys my Absolut rants...heh.....and yes I stay up too late for me even, sometimes...that dang jc started me on the road to ruin!!! :)
I said I wouldn't do any rants but I couldn't resisit posting this because this is probably the best description of RSD symptoms that I have ever seen
