All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.
(apocrief naar Arthur Schopenhauer)

#inktober day 15!

BUT

Oh I could never be as strong as you!
Honestly,
massive respect for the way you get yourself through each day,
it's something I could never do.

But.
Have you tried walking?
I know you're tired,
but walking’s really good for you.
Maybe you should go to bed early,
it's no wonder you're tired so much!
Have you tried hugging trees?
Their energy can absorb
your depression,
your anxiety,
your pain,
your weird little symptoms that no one believes anyway.
Or have you tried to, you know,
just not focus on the pain?
When I try to sleep I just
don't focus on anything
but my breathing.
You should try to just breathe,
in and out and in and out,
that'll do the trick!

Have you tried essential oils?
I hear they're better than morphine,
don't you want to be
without pain?

Maybe you shouldn't use your wheelchair so much,
you’ll become too dependent on it,
end up not walking at all.
You should just walk through…
whatever vague symptoms you just described.

Have you tried
magnesium,
epsom salt baths,
eating every hour,
not eating at all,
filtered water,
pure water from some mountain stream
(20 bucks a bottle,)
clay to clean your colon
(we all know every illness originates in the colon,)
talking to a psychiatrist,
not talking at all,
green powder
(my uncle who used to have cancer swears by this stuff,)
biofield energy healing,
drinking the juice of a dandelion under a full moon,
the tears of a mermaid, the blood of a virgin,
— STOP —

just.

stop.

Prompt for today:
No one understands me → write about what it feels like when no one understands you or agrees with your opinion (the poem took a different turn, but it was initially inspired by this prompt)

Sorry, no artwork today!

In Oost-Vlaanderen en in Limburg zijn deze zomer twee mensen ernstig ziek geworden na een tekenbeet. Het Instituut voor Tropische Geneeskunde onderzoekt of de besmetting met TBE in ons land is gebeurd.

Internist Kenneth Liegner is als internist gespecialiseerd in tekenbeetziekten en behandelt meer dan 25 jaar Lymepatiënten in zijn praktijk in de staat New York. Een eerdere uitspraak van hem: “Als we een mens op de maan kunnen zetten, kunnen we ook de problemen van Lyme en andere tekenbeetziekten oplossen. Als we er maar de wil voor hebben.” Kenneth Liegner schreef nu dit opiniestuk:

Open-minded onderzoek
De gerespecteerde Canadese arts William Osler (1849-1919), pionier van de moderne medische opleiding, was beroemd van de uitspraak: “Als je maar lang genoeg naar de patient luistert, dan vertelt hij je wat er aan de hand is.”

De Canadese overheidsinstanties voor gezondheid, erkennen dat moeders de ziekte van Lyme kunnen doorgeven aan hun ongeboren babies. Net zoals de WHO dat onlangs deed. Belangrijke stap in erkenning! Terwijl Belgie alles nog ontkent, net zoals onlangs Nederlandse wetenschappers, wat bewuste desinformatie is.
