"Finally, a week without snow...." 'Judith Whitehead' (Inspiration Sunday)

Judith Whitehead lives in Amherst New York and has worked in
the ophthalmology field of medicine for over 30 years.

Finally, a week without snow

Well now that is May, we in the North country have managed to make it for a week without snow flakes...yes you would think it would be safe to put out spring plants but not in Buffalo NY...

I have been self inspiring myself by watching TV shows like Hoarders and Flipping this house and now am ready to start my Spring cleaning and purging of the non essentials lurking around the house.

The grass is starting to grown and flower bulbs awakening...I feel renewed for another year; it has been a looong winter here and am also preparing myself for another trip to the West Coast for some REAL SUN that is in the sky for days at a time...it somehow renews the soul to just feel that Sun after such a long hibernation.

Happy late  Spring to Everyone.

Christina Sanchez The Pharmaceutical Companies/Lobbyists are in bed with them, then they set themselves up , making lawyers RICH with class action suits. You can't get your life back if one of these drugs kills you.

Chuck Lasker I don't think the person who made this knows what a recall is.

Chuck Lasker Not only does the FDA never ever say anything is "safe and effective," they also don''t recall anything. Manufacturers do. And the vast majority of the time it's based on lawsuits that have little to do with facts and science. Ever see the TV ads for "if you took this drug or had this operation, call this law firm?" Well, it's a multi-billion dollar industry, suing Big Pharma. Perfectly good drugs are often removed from the market due to spurious lawsuits, like the autism/vaccine lawsuit that turns out the law firm literally made up the "data" they used in the case, and they're still using the data in more lawsuits. It's the same BS as anti-GMO, anti-vaccine, ChemTrails, etc., because people LOVE to beat down on corporations about making profits, usually while drawing a salary from for-profit corporations or owning one themselves.

Christina Sanchez Perfectly good drugs?? Are you kidding me?? Phen-fen was Proven to have heart problems associated with it, that's why anyone who took it had to have an Ekg to show whether they had any damage, Yasmin a BCP had effects, associated with it, Actos, Lipitor, etc, etc, when we hear those T.V. ad's do you notice @ the end they mention in 10 sec's all the possible side effects stated faster then a ticker tape, sorry but I totally disagree with your summation Chuck, & I have been in the Medical field for over 40 years.

Rick Comstock Just read the sheet the pharmacy gives with every prescription. The world may not be perfect but we would still be using snake oil elixir to cure shit. What we have are drugs that address the symptoms. Manbe better doctors that do not buy into the pharmacies salesmanship for a profit. To many people trying to prove somethings bad, like falling off a ladder, must of been the ladders fault.

Christina Sanchez If you belong to an HMO,, then they give you Generic medications, not all the fluffy ones you see on T.V. in private practice it is up to the Dr. what he chooses to prescribe, they do get wooed by Pharmacy sales people , dinners, gifts etc .P.S. No one reads the sheets they are miles long small print so they trust that they are given what they need, I could tell you horror stories about What really happens, however the Medical field covers things up, so you would never know, trust me.

Chuck Lasker Christina - I said "Perfectly good drugs are often removed from the market due to spurious lawsuits" -- I didn't say always. I didn't say ALL drugs that were recalled or taken off the market were good. But some were. I stand by that.

Chuck Lasker I won't run for Council. But I WILL support Mel, and now Arryl.

Christina Sanchez @ Chuck Lasker, glad you clarified your statement reading it @ face value I feel if you weren't called on it one would conclude the same as I did.

Chuck Lasker No worries, Christina. I'm always happy when someone questions my statements, especially if it gets me to change my mind. I can see how I wasn't clear - and I am no fan of Big Pharma. I'm just also not a fan of sweeping claims in Facebook memes. LOL
