Dear Dr.,
I have this weird compulsion to get on this web-site and answer questions that I'm just guessing about. Why do I enjoy this? Hardly anyone ever says that I helped them. I have a really quiet job which gives me time to post and now I am going on vacation for a week. Have a nice vacation from my eternal posting! I would hate to get everyone p.o.'d at me, but I can't seem to stop. Can you give me a pill for that...or a natural diet...or acupuncture? Just please don't say it is M.E. !

  • Dear Rad-Skw, I think that you are playing with fire here….if you interfere with it the wrong way, you are going to get burnt.. Please educate yourself, please be more constructive/pro-active, and for the love of God, please be more open minded. I think you have contracted some sort of virus yourself….OCD….it appears to me that you have posted on almost every site, slamming certain people, soiling their support, ignoring their intuition, and hastily rejecting their help. Lets be constructive here? You have taken the place of Mommy cat….but if you are so quick to degrade her…why are you so quick to be just like her?? Don’t you think it’s funny how everyone has the same symptoms and coincidentally it’s hyperparathyroidism?.....have you asked yourself that question….even better, have you asked yourself “why?”…what’s the reason?....what’s the underlying cause?......Anybody……? Hello……? And how about this…..Have you been immunised?….I’d go back and look if I were you….have a goooooood look at it all, just like some of us did. Research has shown that illnesses and vaccines are closely related….this condition is NO exception….People are getting sick because of the Governments lack of research and haste in trying to “Cure” the world with these (deadly) vaccines. Friends of mine have also been given vaccines and have fallen extremely ill. “Oh yes,” the Dr’s say “Just a small pinch and you will be safe from…Polio, Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertusis”…etc. Sure, sure, we’ll be safe….Safe for a few years before we end up in the ***n Dr’s surgery, with the Dr shaking his head in confusion as to what went so horribly wrong . Rad…Just while we’re on the topic….I was just wondering….are YOU a vaccine….? You are certainly making me feel sick….callous…… Or how bout this….you go to the Dr’s and the Dr asks you if you have been in a car accident, experienced a trauma, emotional upset, had a severe case of the flu some years ago, or if your immunization’s were up to date…. “ofcourse my immunization’s are up to date….”…..what kind of questions are those? You say “No, Dr, I am just here today because I am very tired, I am having breathing difficulties, I have a rash, my limbs don’t move exactly how I want them to and I cannot seem to concentrate!” Uh-Oh!!! So how is that related?? Un-educated people would not know. Do some research and you will see…it IS related. Research in relation to my condition, is something that I have been asked to do. I have NOT been asked by a Dr or specialist, I have NOT been asked by my friends or my family. This is something that my body wants me to do…. in sheer desperation to be given a second chance. My quest keeps me awake until 1am in the morning and wakes me again at 5am. I don’t know how I am accomplishing this exhausting task, but my newly found thirst for knowledge has certainly helped. Up until 7 weeks ago, I, like many, did not know this condition existed, hence the delay in my diagnosis. But through research, what I do know now, however, is that this condition (and I say “condition” with full purpose) has plagued the world. ….more than you will ever know. Take me, for example, I have this condition, and if you “read” the other posts….don’t just “look” at them with the shallow intent that you posses…but actually “read” them, you will find that many, many, MANY others are also traveling with us and enduring a similar plight. Whether they know it, deny it, ignore it, accept it, whatever….they are still affect by this illness.….how bout you “read” and I mean READ, the other posts….then let me know what you can see….same form of pattern, same complaints, same frustration, same symptoms….guess what….IT’S THE SAME DISEASE!!! Go and have a read….I dare you. I am suffering here, and its people like you who slam the insightful ideas of someone who knows more than you…..cares more than you….and who has the same ***n illness that I and many others have…..and you know what….? You probably have it too. Take a long hard look at yourself….. Ignoring it wont make it go away! Targeting other people makes you look pathetic.....and arrogance gets you nowhere!

  • Are you a vaccine? :pI loved that one. If he pokes me and I faint after 15 minutes, then he is.If she pokes me and I develope a low grade fever that same night, then she is. But he/she would deny it- and say that I suffer from my thyroid.By the way, I know a person with CFS who actually had her thyroid removed- WTF. Isn't that bizzare?Bad medicine.EM- let's not be so critical- you know, he who is critical on others is always critical on himself.Love you all.Fruity.

  • Dear Fruity, Constructive, my darling....not critical. LOL. Does Rad's Arrogance, Ignorance and the Belittling of others fall into a category of illness?? I think he should get that checked out. Love to you all too,:) Em

  • I meant, he was critical, not you, LMAO- but it really works like a circular argument.If we say he is critical, then we are being critical of him- so are we critical as well?Have you ever heard "Don't hate the haters"? - well, I was trying to say he was critical but then it was almost like I was saying "don't critizice the ....."I hope you get the idea :confused::o. I am making myself confused.Frui.

  • Oh riiigggghhhhtttt...now I get it...LMAO.Leave the "construction" up to us, and the "criticism" to others then eh? We are the architects of discovering our illness, we shall build the foundations upon which is to be built a mansion...a mansion of knowlegde, hope, wisdom, faith, light, courage, and health. Critical individuals may not like or accept what we are building....stiff bikkies, that's not gonna knock it down...thats what I say.Happy Building!!!Love, Em

  • Hi Rad,You responded to me with hyperparathyroidism. Yes, I have many of the symptoms and it is a very good guess. I was already tested for it, but you reminded me to go back and look. Just because I assumed it was normal, does not mean it actually was. High normal could mean something. You mentioned you have this disease, so you are sympathetic to it. You don't want anyone to go through the same thing, right? Sometimes we need to be reminded to go back through history to find the answer to current problems.However, you are here for a reason. Not just to "cure" everyone else. You have a compulsion. What does that mean? You are being sarcastic and demeaning yourself. But...along with that you put down someone else....Mommy Cat. You also compare yourself to her.You also are proud that people seemingly accept your guesses, but you also have doubts that they should accept your guesses...because you are just guessing and....not a Dr.I will not suggest your are narcisscistic, obsessive-compulsive, or in a state of mania with grandiose delusions of being the "God of WD".But....you have your doubts. You do not want to be perceived as "unbelievable", paranoid, narcissisctic, obsessive or WRONG! I migh draw the conclusion that you have these same feelings in your personal life, perhaps, and this is an outlet for having "people to listen to you". After all, you are sympathetic to others' with similar disorders you have had, but do not seem to have the history of people taking you seriously. You are surprised at this. You enticed others' to answer the question by this post. I think others understand and accept your good intentions, even with snippet's against MC.Putting down others does not bring you up. You should know this...you are a big boy, smart person. Even on a internet site where it seems things are impersonal because "others" do not know you....it is still unwarranted and can be hurtful. Everyone is here on the WD site because they are hurting. If you are so confident and were truly looking out for others' well-being, you would not mention "MC". You must admit that you are not here to primarily help others, but to help yourself 1st...it brings you up. Your help to other's is a by-product....as is the case with many others. I am not putting you down, but.....No one, even and especially Mommy Cat does not need this crap. You owe her a sincere apology.You question yourself and admit a compulsion. I think you've gone down the path of physical self-discovery enough and need to focus on the psyche a little. Please excuse the suggestion, if you are offended. I do not mean with a psychiatrist. I mean self-examination of your actions, thoughts and feelings. When you do believe in yourself have self-criticism, it often comes out in how you treat others. As in your snipett's against Mommy Cat. It is even obvious in this "impersonal" website. Maybe everything here is not so impersonal as one initially thinks when they start writing a post or comment. I hope everyone on this site considers that!Please....a sincere post of apology to MC.I mean all of this sincerely, and wish you well.

  • MMMMM, the moderators delete posts from helpful, insightful, educated individuals (see above), but they cease to recognise the ferocious "TARGETING" some people like to resort to....does the word 'banned' mean anything to you??? You are banning the wrong people...where's the justice??? Now I'm peeved off!!!!! I dont care if I get banned.....

  • im just guessing but maybe you have some sort of ocd. you actually posted a reply to my post that helped me. your "guess" actually seemed right on. i do realize i need to see a md for an actual diagnosis. I think most browsers/posters are somewhat "obsessed" with this site hoping/searching for some insight for what might be ailing them and I say post on! any info or experience you may have had just might be the turning point for someone.....unless you are purposely just posting for the thrill of it. My advice then would be to try a therapist.

  • the original poster of this thread did not offer any medical information either. Just sarcasm, belittling, insulting, and condesending words. Why is it that the original post was not "deleted per moderator"?There are many people on this site having obvious CFS/ME symptomsMany are beginning to be diagnosedmany are finding people who can relate to them/their symptoms in this forumI'm sure many will soon be given their "official" diagnosis as there are countless taking the info they find here, to their doctors

  • Well- somebody come and argue with me on how "hating the haters" is not related to the individual well being?How being critical of oneself is not a factor that might make the individual more susceptible to disease? or being critical of others?So so many people taking "antidepressants" but many rejecting the psychobabble? Hmm Interesting.

  • It is so encouraging to see others come to someone els'es defense. Rad obviously has some things to work out but he will in time, as we all doMC has offered a lot of helpful information from what I've read. It is only suiting that people come to her defense as many are realizing that the information she offered was, infact, informative.

  • Dear Original Poster:I have this weird compulsion to ask people to try NAET, Reiki and Oriental Medicine. :)If you happen to really suffer from something Hyperthyroid or anything else related or unrelated- please try Alternative Medicine, but not just try anything. Look for a very good Doctor, or a Certified Practitioner, someone with good references.If you feel that most of it is quackery- just prepare some questions and make phonecalls to the practitioners so you can get a reference or something. This attitude is rather common. People have a hard time trusting themselves if they feel they fell victim of a scam.Please don't stop searching for answers just because you don't like to try new things.Ciao, ciao!Fruity.

  • Heeeyyyy...look our posts are back....check it out!!!! :) Your right Eatafruit , I agree totally and do think a SINCERE apology is required here for MC. If you're stuck, RAT....er....RAD.... on how to apologise, let me help you out: Your letter to MC should be as follows*************************************************Dear MC, I RAD hereby deeply and sincerely apologise. You were right, I was wrong. I am going back to medical school. My apologies once again..... Yours Sincerely _____________________(Insert Signature) Rad-Skw******************* There....that should help you out. P.s. Just in case you have any doubts about me...I thought I'd let you know that I am really a very nice person, that is....UNTIL someone comes along and hurts another individual/friend etc. And If I am hurting you, Rad, for writing this....well, Im sorry....its called Karma.

  • i dont think its right for someone to come on here and post a question and have "groups" of people attacking her. I do not know rad - she did post to help me and i am happy for that. I have read through all of her past posts and no where do i see her putting people down and acting in such a manner of yourselves. maybe people cant stand you fruity and your repetiveness - but im sure no one is going to make a post about it. they do like i do - ignore it and move on on to the real reason we are here. rad anyone who takes time out of their day to help someone one else should get rewarded for that i believe in what comes around goes around. I am looking forward to seeing your posts and replies - that only your insight might help someone. I do believe these are forums for helping people find help/diagnosis for their medical problems.... not a chat room. I suggest maybe you girls get one instead of wasting other peoples time reading through this garbage.rad any aplogy should be for going on vacation and not posting for a while.

  • Gee guys, I was poking fun at MYSELF. I mentioned homeopathic medicine ALONG with traditional pills and stuff to cure MYSELF. I mentioned M.E. because my postings were getting as frequent as those which mention M.E. This was meant to read like "Dear Ann Landers". Thanks to the last "unregistered" for the kind message. Wow, did I stir up the group. Sorry that my joke was misunderstood.

  • Also, I did NOT mention MC. Please re-read my original post and see what I actually wrote. Somehow this board has become divided and angry. Some recommend hospital care/M.D./D.O./medication/ etc. (Sometimes called Western Med). And some recommend massage, nutrition, feng shui, and preventive life-styles. (sometimes called Eastern Med.). I personally appreciate and use both. But if the "Eastern" posters decide to zing the "Westerners", or vice versa, let's still be courteous. Zings, barbs and funny rebuttals are o.k. All-out war is not.That's what inhibits these boards from giving multiple diagnoses to posters.

I still think that there is a lot of communication barriers when it comes to the written word.As far as my previous recommendation goes, I am telling people to scrap the Reiki idea. I don't think it works. Don't worry, I don't think we are divided an angry any more. Remember, sick people need an outlet- so sometimes their anger is a symptom of a real condition. We have bigger issues to deal with here.I still feel like are you a vaccine? makes some sort of pick up line, I don't know why... BTW, cat fights are cute...prrrrrr.J/K!Have a great day!

  • Oddly, I had a shingles vaccination last week and will get a booster tetanus/whooping cough vaccine in a couple of weeks. I know there is a lot of controversy regarding vaccinations and by the time kids are teens, they have had 40 vaccinations, but as a hospital employee, it is highly recommended here. My aunt had shingles and I never want to see anyone suffer like she did. The nerve pain hangs around for months! Adults can pass whooping cough to children, so that's who I am protecting when I get inoculated. I feel pretty good and most of my aches and pains are related to weight gain...from this sedentary job!
