    I never got the test for it. My doctors sometimes seem to think that people with MS are hypochondriacs, because a lot of MS symptoms are subjective. (only the person experiencing it can feel it. “invisible symptoms”). I had a hard enough time trying to get them to do more testing for Lyme disease. (I tested positive for some Lyme bacteria, but not enough for it to qualify as a positive result according to the CDC)

    Maybe I’ll ask for the blood test for heavy metals when I go back to the new dentist to get the last three of the amalgam fillings out. (after the first 9, I got a bit emotionally traumatized by all the dental work. Decided to wait a bit to get the last three out. Dentist said they were stable, and didn’t seem to be as high in mercury as the others. Not sure how she can tell)

    His last name was Grosso. Pretty sure he’s dead by now.

    Yes, I have MS for sure. I don’t know which of the alphabet soup of classifications of MS that I am, (think there’s four types? five?) I don’t really think I need to be classified for which “flavor” of MS that I have. I just call it “MS”.

    I can still walk, as long as I have a walker. I only started using that about a year ago because I had a non-MS related injury to my shoulder, that was very painful. Took awhile for that to heal, and walking with a cane is hard when your shoulder hurts to move it. The forced inactivity didn’t do me any good for the crummy walking I’d been doing before. If I can find the right PT program, I think I could get stronger. Hopefully.

    When I was little, my parents would take me to the dentist. That dentist was a quack. He put the dentist phobia into me. I remember being tied down (soft restraints of some sort, tied to the arms of the chair, legs tied to the seat of the chair) while the dentist was filling a cavity in one of my baby teeth. I’m highly suspicious that I actually had cavities. He put fillings in both the baby teeth, and in a few of my permanent teeth.

    My parents never knew that he’d tied me down until I told them a few years ago. I didn’t know it was wrong. It scared me to death, but I don’t think I ever told them about it when I was a kid. It might be one of the reasons I’m claustrophobic, and have panic attacks at the dentist office sometimes. Sometimes the smell of the dentist office sets me off. I found out later that it’s the developer they used to develop x-rays of the teeth. (when I was in high school, took photography classes. Learned to develop film. Wondered why I was scared of the developing room) New dentist does digital x-rays. No chemical scent anymore. Helps!

    I found out about 5 or 6yrs ago, that he ruined a few of my teeth, and the amalgam fillings were so high mercury, that my current dentist had to take special precautions to remove the amalgam and replace it. My dentist said she wouldn’t be surprised if some of that high mercury filling could have contributed to the multiple sclerosis that I have. (some symptoms of mercury poisoning are similar to MS symptoms)

    If they knew that they *had* to be there, they should have made special arrangements. Like, park in a legal parking spot, and walk the rest of the way.

    Only people who should get special parking are handicapped people, and even then, it’s “first come, first serve”. They still have to follow the law, and not double park.

    My father is a retired CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist). He’s told me that they have some interesting humor in the operating rooms sometimes, but if he ever heard another one of his coworkers talking like that to an anesthetized patient. He’d have reported them.

    Even tho the guy in the story had a recorded conversation on his phone. My father told me that you never know what a patient might be able to hear while they’re under anesthesia. Some people have atypical reactions to anesthesia, and don’t go under completely.

    My dad used a BIS Monitor (brain wave monitor) to monitor how deeply a patient was under, and to be able to tell when they were coming out of anesthesia. He was one of the few anesthetists/anesthesiologists at his hospital who bothered using the BIS. He always wanted to make sure his patients were being properly anesthetized, and not feeling any pain or anxiety during a procedure.

    I almost drowned in the wave pool at Oceans Of Fun in Kansas City, and I was on the edge of the pool, right below the area where that life guard was standing. Trying to climb out on the ladder. Every time I tried to climb up the ladder, I’d get sucked back down. The lifeguards need to look down at the ladders sometimes.

    I was about to go completely under when someone on the side above me noticed, and got the lifeguard. I never got back in one of those wave pools ever again. By the way, I was twelve, and a fairly good swimmer…just no experience in swimming in waves like that.

    Kids who have never had experience swimming in waves should not go in pools like that until they’ve been instructed how to swim in waves, and kids who are not strong swimmers should not go in one of those pools until they have more swimming experience.

    I think a lot of people are having a “causation and correlation” problem.

    A lot of racists are white. But, white skin doesn’t cause racism. Racism is caused by ignorance. Anyone, *of any color* can be a racist.

    Just because this guy is white, a racist, and a slimeball murderer, does not mean that all white people should feel guilty about what he’s done just because they’re white.

    @fortherecord

    I don’t know what it was that sliced that dog’s head open. It was the top of the skull, kind of between the ears. I was petting her, and felt something on her head. Looked a little closer, and you could actually see the top of her skull. My aunt is a nurse tho, and knows how to do stitches, and also knows how to use surgical super glue for stitches. (my aunt has a really well stocked first aid kit) So, she was able to treat the dog herself. The vet said she did a great job on it.

    We’re pretty sure it was the aunt’s next door neighbor that killed/hurt the dogs. The wife, the day she left her husband for 2yrs, dumped dog poop (probably 40pounds worth) in my front yard, and on my aunt’s back patio. I have no idea where she got the dog poo. (well, it was poo. Maybe it wasn’t from dogs?) She had two dogs herself, but she let them run loose, and never cleaned up after them.

    She came back a year or two after my aunt got her last dog. That dog started having problems then. Aunt had to check her yard before letting the dog out. If it was the neighbor, she’s insane. No idea what she used, because none of the usual suspected poisons came up on my dog’s bloodwork. We didn’t do a necropsy to look deeper, because we didn’t suspect poisoning right away.. Wish we had done the necropsy now. I don’t like the mystery.

    I do actually have a suspect. The neighbors that live next door to my aunt. (aunt lives across the street from me). My dog died mysteriously, and quickly in 2006 after eating something in that neighbor’s yard. He pretty much dragged me into the yard to get whatever it was. He was dead a couple of days later. Aunt’s dog was sick off and on for two years before she died. After she died (on the 2yr anniversary of mine dying) my aunt and I compared notes. We think the dogs were poisoned.

    My aunt’s second dog also was getting sick with similar symptoms. (she got the dog after the first one died). So, she started to supervise the dog when it was outside. Aunt kept finding hot dogs on her back porch.

    Several years ago, that same dog got out (aunt’s grandkids accidentally let her out), and when she came back inside. I found that her head had been sliced open. Down to the skull. (that was a creepy feeling). It was such a clean slice, it had to be deliberate. There wasn’t any blood tho. Which was weird.

    Aunt just lost that dog 2 weeks ago. But, it was kennel cough (bordatella) that got her. Cousin had gotten a new dog last year. It came with kennel cough. Infected my aunt’s dog. (dog was vaccinated. Those don’t always work). Dog kept getting worse. Never really recovered. Aunt had to put her down 2 weeks ago. Can’t blame the neighbor for that one tho.

    This makes me miss my dog. More than once, he put himself between me and another dog that was trying to attack me. (on at least three separate occasions. My neighbors were jerks, and wouldn’t keep their dogs contained). Never felt as safe as I did when he was with me. Best dog ever.

    I’d have done the same for him. If someone was trying to hurt him. (someone did end up hurting him tho. Our neighborhood has a serial dog killer in it. They poisoned my dog, and my aunt’s dog. No idea who it is that’s killing the neighborhood dogs)

    my insurance changed, became hugely expensive, AND they made me lose my doctor when that happened too. (I have chronic medical conditions). I ended up having to find another insurance company. (only part about the law that I like is the ability to switch companies). The new insurance company allows me to see my doctor, and claims it’s cheaper than the old policy at the old company was.

    I’m still fully expecting to be screwed over financially soon because of all this tho.

    Just because you say it Hillary, doesn’t make it true.

    Both her and Obama seem to think they can make up these stories, and say them often enough that it’s true. It’s not, but if they keep saying it people will still believe it is.

    I think 0bama and Kerry are both delusional morons, who are both off their meds, and need to go back into their adjoining padded rooms where they can watch Rev Al mispronounce words on an endless loop.

    Hoping Kerry’s broken leg forces him to quit, and that by some lucky chance we’ll get someone else put in his place that knows what he’s doing that can somehow convince Zero that what he’s doing is the stupidest plan anyone has ever thought of.

    I know that’s a pipe dream tho.

    I think she was already a hero, from everything that we’ve learned about her in the news.

    I noticed that we’re not hearing all that much about the scum that killed her. There does seem to be a gang war starting up in Omaha. I hope we don’t see more cops getting shot. I think Obama wa triggered a lot of the animosity towards the cops on purpose.

    The news said that the funeral procession was more than seven miles long, and took an hour and a half, to two hours to wind through Omaha and Council Bluffs. I think I heard them say there were over 400something squad cars, a lot from out of state, in the procession.

    I have never seen a local turnout like this for a funeral before. I wish we were honoring her with an award for something heroic, rather than having a funeral.

    They said on the news tonight that the thug shot Officer Orozco with a 9mm Glock pistol that had a FIFTY ROUND DRUM MAGAZINE in it! Only one of the cops was able to shoot back, and thankfully got the guy. The slug that hit Officer Orozco hit her in the upper chest, and went out thru her back. They found it in her vest. The only person using 9mm ammo was the felon. The police chief said this was a justified shooting of the suspect.

    Whenever I hear of high capacity magazines, I just assumed they held something like fifteen rounds. I never knew they made a magazine that looks like it belongs more on a tommy gun, than it does on a 9mm pistol.

    Most of the thugs are in North Omaha…with Sen Ernie Chambers, who said a few months ago that he thinks that the Omaha police are worse than members of ISIS.

    The term limits didn’t do enough to get rid of old Ernie. (he had to take a break from the Unicameral for a few years, before he could go back and screw more stuff up…like repealing the death penalty today)

    they said on the news that she was wearing a protective vest, but the bullet hit her above the top of the vest.

    I was across the street from the hospital at the Creighton Cardiac Center when the ambulances arrived to take her to the trauma center. I have never seen that many cops in one place before. They had so many cops there, and the looks on most of their faces was heartbreaking. I think they knew it was going to end up the way it did. Everyone looked so sad, but businesslike and professional.

    My dad had told me when he worked in the trauma center, what would happen whenever there was a shooting on the North side of Omaha. The police have to basically take over security for the hospital, because family and friends of the suspect(s) will also descend on the building, and sometimes go looking for revenge. I never believed my dad how scary things like that look when that happens until now.

    Hopefully I won’t witness the sadness on all those police officers faces ever again.

    I feel really bad that she will never get to see her baby daughter come home, and that her baby will never know her mom.
