Could be worse?

Posted by Bout Hadit at June 16, 2012
Tags: Health  2012 June

I'm 53 years old, my wife has been battling breast cancer for the last 5 years, going through her 5th chemo round. 3 supportive kids, 2 in college one still in HS. I was "relieved" of my position of 30 years nearly 3 years ago, searched for another job until I had a heart attack last September. Stents were placed in the blocked arteries but there is a problem with a valve that may require surgery. Now I am spending retirement money paying for insurance and medical bills, waiting for my heart condition to improve so I can go back to work. Once I do return to work, I'll have to pay someone to take care of my wife while I'm gone as she's sometimes barely able to walk. Our nearest family is 650 miles away, they have been unable to assist as they have issues of their own. Yea it sucks, but I'm sure others have it way worse than we do, so I shouldn't complain.

Dear friend-
I work in the healthcare field and can totally understand your dilemma. Believe it or not, your situation is more common than you'd expect- folks like yourself trying to raise their kids, send them to college, and then "wham" something traumatic happens, sending you in a tailspin. You're being squashed between a rock and a hard place, pulling double duty- and it's taking a toll on your health. No, you can't do it all- but you're trying to, and it's literally killing you- Gosh, it breaks my heart. Our health care system is grotesque. I myself don't even have health insurance and I work as a nurse. I just can't afford it! People are getting laid off in the name of "profit". There is no such thing as job "security". And an employer will lay you off before you can even think of collecting a pension. Yup- thanks to the fucking corporations and big business, greedy stock brokers, crooks all of them! I'm about ready to close my bank account- between all the overdraft fees and bullshit, it's like I'm better off keeping money under the mattress. So sweetie, you are not alone, millions are walking that fine line, living paycheck to paycheck- and god forbid something tragic happens? Please stay positive. It sucks for everyone right now- and Europe is doing worse than we are- It will be interesting to see what happens with Obamacare in the next few weeks...
We are all waiting like sheep.
Big hug to you and your wife.

Yeah there're more people out in the world who have it worse than you do but, it's different when you still can't help but to think that you still going through something. People can tell you all day everyday that your life isn't bad compared to other people in this world, but you will continue to think that you're the only one suffering. I know how you feel, what it means to want to give up and cut yourself off from the world. Get out and enjoy yourself. Treat yourself to a movie or dinner, just don't isolates yourself, because things can online get worse.

Sorry for that typo, I meant things will only get worse.

Having cancer sure does affect the whole family. Good thing you have your kids to offer support. Hope you are doing better, too, with the stents and surgery and all. Life can be so difficult sometimes. Best of luck to you and get well soon.

Please check out this website, I've studied health and nutrition for over 30 years, cancer, diabetes and heart disease are 100% reversible. Requires changing your diet from the SAD diet (standard American Diet)to a vegan 80% raw diet.

IT REVERSES CANCER and HEART DISEASE..... NO medical treatment will come close to what this diet will do. I've talked to may people that have reversed ALL kinds of diseases, its NOT hearsay or rumor.

Cure for cancer and any other disease is right here, tons of free info nothing to buy, but maybe a juicer :o) Read the thousands of testimonies. Google hallelujah diet or hallelujah acres website.

I tried posting links but it wont let me, sorry. Please google this stuff it's IMPORTANT it WILL change your life I promise.

google hallelujah diet on hallelujah acres website

Search for this article on naturalnews(dot)com "Exposing the fraud and mythology of conventional cancer treatments"

Read these books:

The China Study by Collin Campbell (Learn what REALLY causes cancer, scientifically proven!!!!!)

This one is specific to heart disease:

Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr. : The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure

Hope this helps,

Best wishes and prayers for yourself and family, friend.

I'm stuck in China without a job, and soon without a home. And no way to get home.

But wow, you still maintain a positive outlook. Thanks for that, you and your situation just gave me a little strength. I just wish there was something I could do for you.

Take care and hoping the best for a better outcome for yourself and your wife.

Go to peaceful pill handbook dot com and see about ordering a helium hood aka exit bag. seems to be a great way to do it, you just lose consciousness very fast and then drift away. off yourself peacefully, just assemble it, crinkle the bag up on top of your head so there is no air in it, open the tank and exhale then pull the hood down over your head and take a deep breath in, you will pass out almost instantly and never wake up.
may you find peace
By anonymous at 04,Jul,12 15:35

Sounds like you should give it a try, let me know how it goes.
By anonymous at 12,Jul,12 20:25 Fold Up

You are an asshole to recommend this. It's not actually peaceful btw- the person attempting this more often then not has extreme panic reflex when they do this. And consider the consequences --the guys poor wife is going to find him like that, and wonder-did he do this because he couldn't take it caring for me?! Think before you post. And if you are considering this step yourself-please get help. You will hurt many ppl that you wouldn't expect would be hurt with this action. There is no taking it back.

By anonymous at 19,Jul,12 03:01

I'm so sorry for your struggles, I hope everything will get better for you.

I and also my buddies ended up looking at the excellent tips and tricks on your web blog and then suddenly I had an awful feeling I never expressed respect to the web blog owner for those techniques. My ladies were definitely absolutely very interested to learn all of them and have extremely been making the most of them. I appreciate you for actually being considerably kind and for figuring out this form of useful useful guides millions of individuals are really wanting to be informed on. My very own sincere regret for not expressing gratitude to sooner.

I wanted to compose you the very little word to be able to say thanks yet again for all the fantastic concepts you have featured on this website. It is so remarkably generous of people like you to convey freely what a number of people could possibly have distributed as an electronic book to get some money for themselves, certainly considering that you could possibly have done it in case you wanted. These thoughts also served like a great way to realize that many people have similar passion the same as my personal own to understand good deal more with respect to this condition. Certainly there are some more fun situations in the future for individuals who find out your blog post.
