3/30/2010 - Back to the Hospital.

My second visit to John Stroger Hospital . I got there around 8:45am, I needed to get an opinion about the infection, and swelling in my throat.
Let it be known , I do not like Hospitals . Absolutely the last place that any one should go for help. There solution to a health problem is a DRUG solution.
This is what happened this day.
I all ready had an appointment,9:00am: an it took a couple of hours before I got the call. A young lady who is a ENT; Ear, Nose , and Throat specialist, examined me. She was sick . I mean she had a cold ; runny nose, and working in a hospital.
My throat has been like this for well over a year, and little by little it is getting better. Set backs happen whenever I get stressed-out , not enough sleep or run out of healing food and herbal goodies.
The lady doctor took one of those snake like scope seeing instruments and put it in my nose to look at my throat. OooooHhhhhh OUCH!!!!!!!! !
She didn't see much, a little redness. and then she recommended a drug for some one with reflux (?) That was it. There was no cultures taken, no blood work , nothing put under the microscope. and if the drug doesn't work than it will take 3 months of waiting to get a different drug for the same problem.
I was out of there at 12:15pm. It's a lovely day.
I'm not going out like that. I looking for a non drug solution ..Something Natural. They can not save us. Only we can save us.

4/26/2010 Roseland Hospital /8:15am
My rash is out of control, giving my heart beat another off beat. They gave me some "Diphenydramine 25 MG capsules".
Because I don't know that is causing the rash on my body, I have no other choice but to take this drug. If I could get a handle on what is causing this rush, I would not be suffering right now.
There are people out there that know all about my condition, and they don't what to make it public. Why would they ? Then there would be less drugs to push to the public. The only warning they give you about this "Benadril" is that it will make you Drowey...
Reading the info. Possible side effects : Drowsiness ; Sedation;Headache; Dry mouth; Stomach discomfort or pain; Constipation; Nausea; Decreased appetite; Increased appetite. It's 3:00pm and I took one pill. OK so far.

Little Known Black History Facts

Little known black history fact

A very humorous and revealing story is told about a group of white people who were fed up with African Americans, so they joined together and wished themselves away. They passed through a deep dark tunnel and emerged in sort of a twilight zone where there is an America without black people.

At first the white people breathed a sigh of relief. "At last," they said. "No more crime, drugs, violence and welfare. All of the blacks have gone!"

Then suddenly, reality set in. The "NEW AMERICA" is not America at all -- only a barren wasteland!

1. There are very few crops that have flourished because the nation was built on a slave-supported system.

2. There are no cities with tall skyscrapers because Alexander Mils, a black man, invented the elevator, and without it one finds great difficulty reaching higher floors.

3. There are few if any cars because Richard Spikes, a black man, invented the automatic gear shift, Joseph Gambol, also black, invented the Super Charge System for Internal Combustion Engines, and Garrett A. Morgan, a black man, invented the traffic signals.

4. Furthermore, one could not use the rapid transit system because it's procurer was the electric trolley, which was invented by another black man, Albert R. Robinson.

5. Even if there were streets on which cars and a rapid transit system could operate, they were cluttered with paper because an African American, Charles Brooks, invented the street sweeper.

6. There were few if any newspapers, magazines, and books because John Love invented the pencil sharpener, William Purveys invented the fountain pen, Lee Barrage invented the Type Writing Machine and W. A. Love invented the Advanced Printing Press. They were all, you guessed it, Black.

7. Even if Americans could write their letters, articles and books, they would not have been transported by mail because William Barry invented the Postmarking and Canceling Machine, William Purveys invented the Hand Stamp and Philip Downing invented the Letter Drop.

8. The lawns were brown and wilted because Joseph Smith invented the Lawn Sprinkler and John Burr the Lawn Mower.

9. When they entered their homes, they found them to be poorly ventilated and poorly heated. You see, Frederick Jones invented the Air Conditioner and Alice Parker the Heating Furnace.

Their homes were also dim. But of course, Lewis Later invented the Electric Lamp, Michael Harvey invented the lantern and Granville T . Woods invented the Automatic Cut off Switch. Their homes were also filthy because Thomas W. Steward invented the Mop & Lloyd P. Ray the Dust Pan.

10. Their children met them at the door-barefooted, shabby, motley and unkempt. But what could one expect? Jan E. Matzelinger invented the Shoe Lasting Machine, Walter Sammons invented the Comb, Sarah Boone invented the Ironing Board and George T . Samon invented the Clothes Dryer.

11. Finally, they were resigned to at least have dinner amidst all of this turmoil. But here again, the food had spoiled because another Black Man, John Standard invented the refrigerator.

Now, isn't that something? What would this Country be like without the contributions of Blacks, as African-Americans? Martin Luther King, Jr., "by the time we leave for work, Americans have depended on the inventions from the minds of Blacks."

Black history includes more than just slavery, Frederick Douglass, Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Marcus Garvey & W.E.B. Dubois.
