That isn't very surprising considering the quality of their software.

I hate to say it but I'm really starting to get sick of your constant judgements about how people live their lives. You are intitled to your opinion, but you seem to keep making broad statements about things that I think you really don't know a whole lot about.
In this particular case, I would probably agree with Genius (though I might not have put it quite that way). When you have bones begining to degenerate, there really isn't much for a chiropractor to work with. If the bone is wearing away, it is probably time to see a surgeon.

While I have never been to one, both of my parents saw one regularly and found much relief. I have been lucky not to suffer from anything requiring the attention of one so I can't speak from personal experiance.

and to show that I am serious:
Excuse me Ranger, but my brother in law is a chiropractor and he graduated from a four year state college. Then went on to a credited chiropractic school for another four years.
Here are my cites:
This is the college that my brother in law went to for his undergrad studies:

This is the chiropractic school that he attended:

I agree that chiropratic therapy may not be the right treatment for spartletarte's SO. I don't know that much about what is happening to his back.

I am just trying to call RG out on this statement:
Sparkle, I hate to break it to you, but chiropractic isn't really science either. Take him to a real doctor for treatment. Most chiropractors have fewer than two years of undergraduate schooling, at unaccredited schools. I wouldn't really trust my health to one of them. They only get to call themselves "Doctor" because there's no way to stop them.

Take him to a real doctor.
Because it seems to me that it's a rather broad statement without a whole lot of evidence to support it. But if he has some, I'd like to see it.

Now, since this is all on the Fuck! thread and I want to continue this discussion. I've created a new topic where this conversation can continue so that the Fuck! thread can get back to what it's supposed to be for.

Fuck, I wandered off eplaya for a few days and the landscape shifted while I was out ...

Mom's in fucking ICU. They were getting ready to transfer her to a nursing home aka care facility, and she went into a diabetic coma in the middle of the night. Her blood sugar was 9. NINE!? How can your fucking blood sugar be NINE!? I got my Larry home as fast as possible, this was it the docs said. But apparently mom isn't going to die on us quite yet, the coma was, well, short. Although she says she actually did die at one point. Today she's pretty chipper mentally, and they're talking moving her back to a regular ward.

I mean, fuck I'm glad my mom isn't dead, but I can't fucking take this much longer.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming ...

Shouldn't they have been, you know, paying attention to that, given that she's in a hospital? Have another helping of drama and trauma casserole, Anti-M. You don't have enough.

Thanks bluenightowl. Of course my honey will be using every avenue that will help his back and including a conventional doctor in there too.

Rg, that comment really bothers me, coupled with your blanket statement the other night that accupuncture doesn't work, which I'm sure makes the Chinese wonder how it's been so effective for 1,000's of years. Interestingly enough, in BC, the governement pays for chiro visits and has set up a Chinese medicine wing in a Vancouver hospital, the BC car insurance branch pays for accident-related visits to Chinese doctors and chiro, and my extended health insurance company pays for chiro, accupuncture, naturopathy, and massage. Do you really think think the government and insurance companies would pay for these treatments if they didn't have evidence they worked?

While I'm sure you're a smart person rg, your comments on complementary medicine are rather sweeping and arrogant.

And when something on the eplaya makes me lie awake at night it makes me rethink my previous comment about this forum.

Fuck is right, oh Fuckity Fuck Fuck AntiM.

But RG's comment strikes true to me. Dont want to add to your already estranged state, but it sounds like someone mis-monitored her blood sugar levels. I have gone through this with someone before, hospitals make mistakes everyday and you sometimes have to stick your foot up someone's ass to make sure they are on top of things. But that would be easy to do now. You can get on their case that this should not have happened and they will pay her closer attention to avoid liability concerns, especailly if you hint at a malpractice suit.

It also sounds like something else might be wrong that is being overlooked, perhaps one of her meds is interfering with insulin synthesis, or her kidneys are working at a lower level... dunno. But you should be on them for an answer.

Its hard to get anything done or even keep a concentrated train of thought when under that stress. I feel for ya.

Fuck! Didn't have time to grab breakfast this morning. I have an hour and a half until i can stumble downstairs and seek a caffeine drip and a tasty, toasted, cream-cheesy bagel.

I don't think i ever recovered from yesterday's caloric deficit. Damn, I thought the Pho made it all ok, but apparently that isn't true after a couple hours at the gym.

Ah, well, being hungry to the point of stomach sickness does, at the least, remind me to be thankful that I have access to good food and water, unlike so many.

Most chiropractors
a close friend of mine had this serious alergy flare up. She went to the western med guy and he comes up with dust allergy. No his idea was not better than the treatment either. She goes to chinese med dude. Has her drink cicada tea. Yuck. No Help. She goes to chiropractor and he says right away it's her liver that's backed up and she needs to figure out what in her diet is not working. He was spot on. She had a food allergy. Now she's AOK.

moral of the story, all doctors are not created equal be they chiro or not. In most cases I would sooner trust a PT than a surgeon. They are all glorified mechanics.

Fuck immature adults.

Fuck psychopathic sociopaths who use words as knives, smiling as they cut you.

Fuck those who should no better than to engage and escalate, crapping on our dinnertable and bartops.

And fuck those ugly fucks that instigate conflicts and drives others away through annoyance, passive agression, overly critical sarcasm, lack of humor, and absence of on-line social skills.

I have always believed things of this nature should be taken care of privately, as adults, without having to involve and drag the larger community down into it. I did not understand the one sided comment you referred to, but I am not going to ask for clarification because of the strong belief you will reply with more hostility. I have asked you, politely, not to reply to my comments and you are continuing to do so.

Since you do not wish me to PM you, that should leave both of us no reason to comment on each other in any way, which is good because you are using abusive language aimed at another user.

fucking conspiracy theory:

assuming that the level of forsight is beyond that of a ten year old, I theorize that this board is being infiltrated with complete asshats, some of whom have been here for some time, to make this board so unbearable that serious consideration takes place whether to keep it intact or not. In the hopes that the board is done away with, the asshats, I theorize, also hope to introduce a new so-called better chatting product or format, all out of asshat self-serving fukedness. IF my fucking conspiracy theory holds any fucking water, then I would consider the actions of those that conspire against this board quite heinous. And, in saying that, I would like to say to those that I theorize on to go to fucking hell you self-centered fucks. Oh yeah, and if you don't like what I say, come see me, let's hash it out face to face fuckers...

if an "asshat" is treated as though they didn't exist...would that eventually become true? if "asshats" feed off of our negative energy...would they starve if we stopped feeding them?
