The Thing Living Inside Frankie

content discovered on Saturday, August 12, 2017

Image SourceTo preface, "The Thing" is not a baby.One hundred percent NOT a baby.Now that that's out of the way, we can move on.For the sake of easier reading there will be times were the writing of this post is in first person, and times when we flip to us/we when it seems appropriate. This is one of the rare occasions in the many years of writing that there has been swapping, or even use of "I".If you don't know who "We" are, and are actually curious, there is an archive of writing available at your di... read more »

Diary of the Guinea Pigs: Day Nine

content discovered on Wednesday, September 24, 2014

<< Day Six The wireless signal in this building is literallydriving me nuts. And turning the smartphone into a hotspot is often pointless since there's so much steel and concrete surround this building that the signal is weak in most spots. This is not making research projects very easy, as it's a ridiculous feat trying to get the campus library website (where there is student access to a plethora of peer-reviewed journal articles for writing papers) to load. It's like 56k dial-up. Flashback to the 90's... read more »

THAT’S MEDICAL DIALOGUE? by Hannah Alexander

content discovered on Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Im taking a detour from my Dear Hannah posts to share some light dialogue that often takes place in our house when Im working on a medical scene. As you know, Mel and I work together on our Hannah Alexander novels, hence the pen name. Im the writer, hes the medical expert, but as [] read more »

Diary of the Guinea Pigs: Day Six

content discovered on Saturday, September 20, 2014

<< Day Three Day Four, Five and SixDay Four:Finally feeling human again. Minimal to no headaches, felt great not having all of that food in the belly like a damn lead ball. The diet restriction for this two week session is a 40% reduction. It's perfect. Not feeling hungry, but peppery and healthy. It's a diet amount more in line with the usual calorie intake we are used to, so the portions are manageable. Forgot to label two of the breath bags today, so the woman who mans the desk in the a.m. is going ... read more »

Help! My Brain’s Exploding! by Hannah Alexander

content discovered on Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Not long ago, I was, as usual, struggling with chronic pain, trying to come up with a new subject for a blog, and decided to ask Mel for input about pain. Hes a very intelligent man who has about double the brain capacity and vocabulary that I have. He also tends to get on a [...] read more »

Soundscape Of Chillcrust Valley Rehab & Nursing...

content discovered on Sunday, March 25, 2012

There's a lot to describe about Chillcrust, such as its structure, the purpose of separate units, staff and administration. The unique nature of the soundscape, I'm sure, would have something in common with other facilities, but the following is just a flavor of the "genpop" that is very much a reflection of Flink. This description of what I hear is from the need to be bed-ridden for two weeks. In a small child-like voice that travels far, a woman screams "help! Help Me!" night and day. It disturbs the m... read more »

Most of you know I'm in a nursing home/rehab facility after a heart attack left me seriously weakened. I'm getting physical therapy, because I haven't walked in three years, for the most part. Because I had worked out all my life in one way or another, I've recovered fairly quickly. In fact, my PT instructor remarked that there is no way I'd be doing this well were it not for the fact that I ate well, and exercised vigorously most of my life. I had begun treatment using diathermy read more »

The Louise Hay School of Medicine

content discovered on Sunday, October 23, 2011

Before I came to Chillcrust, I had weekly appointments with my PCP. A few weeks before my heart attack, there was a youngish man sitting in his waiting room. I was early, and as is my wont, I had started talking to him. He had noticed I was in pain. So this opportunist started discussing U.S. Pain Foundation, and the additional dimension we add to the discussion on chronic pain, as it is first-hand accounts. (We are all former or current pain patients.) He replied, "Oh, I've had pain for years. But I've ... read more »

Medispeak, Medithink:COMING ATTRACTIONS

content discovered on Thursday, October 13, 2011

Medispeak, Medithink Are EQUALLY Dangerous. Medicine didn't escape the plummet of social converse in Orwellian misinformation. I haven't read Orwell in more years than I care to admit, but I don't think he said anything explicit about medicine and a mystery language, along with pure "medithink, For example, if you are under the care of a pain specialist, and he puts you on Avinza or Kadian, longer acting types of morphine, or short acting, as in Immediate Release, (IR), and you take it as prescribed, ... read more »

Language Defines Reality Too Fearful to Face

content discovered on Saturday, July 30, 2011

From Things You Should Know series I'm listing something from Jenni Prokopy hopefully tonight, on a phrase she uses, to submit to Urban Dictionary. (I can't tell you what it is until it's a sealed deal.) I brought up the idea, the necessity, of developing a full dictionary around pain. While it's ambitious, and a long-term project, the point is that language shapes the perception of what is being discussed. By Following the link, you'll find a recent effort in this direction. This is very true of polit... read more »
