Shinnyo-en Lantern Floating 2014

You write your wishes/prayers on the Lantern then float it in a body of water. I’ve done various volunteer activities with this Buddhist Temple.  I don’t attend as much as I used to but I still get together with my Japanese friends for Buddhist services, chanting and meditation.

 

 

My Greatest Wish is to spend more time with my brother Stephen who is an Awesome Autism Guy! ♡ ♡ ☆ ☆

If you want to share a literal image of the actual word, do that. But if you’d rather play with word association, post something that reminds you of the specific word, or something you use the word for, do so. It only has to make sense to you. Have fun and keep on photographing!

This week’s word is Escape!

 

To quote one of my parents favorite sayings, “What is Done in the Dark shall come to the Light.”

Mark 4:22

New King James Version (NKJV)

22 For there is nothing hidden which will not be revealed, nor has anything been kept secret but that it should come to light.

Irksome Health Care Costs

Irksome Health Care Concerns and Costs

Good visit to the gastro doctor today. Basically he wants me on I guess what is now called a Paleo diet. The very thing that most people think is good for you like veggies and fruits causes me extreme gastic distress. Guess I will never become a vegetarian. Also I must stay away from wheat and wheat based products.  And worst of All No Chocolate!! Arrgghh!!

My doctor wants me to do both an endoscopy and a colonoscopy Thursday, November 17th. I told him that it would be impossible for me to take time off.  The doctor even wrote a note which I will give to H.R. and Dispatch/Mgrs tomorrow insisting that I must have these two procedures so let’s see what happens. Getting days off especially for medical procedures is like being in a fight where your opponent has a gun and you only have a small twig with which to defend yourself. Plus I’m still trying to balance attempting to take care of my medical condition with spending time with Stephen. Gosh it seems I’ll never win. Sigh……

Oh yes my ghetto hoodrat Walgreens on Nostrand and Fulton does not have the special solution I need to drink for the test next week. Go figure!!

Sometimes when I think about all the money I spend on doctors, exams, tests, procedures, various types of shots and injections plus any other kind of medical issues I’m beginning to think that I’m making all my doctors richer than they are now!!

That’s the one thing I dislike about getting older. The older I get the more health issues I have. When I was in my teens, 20s, 30s and early 40s everything was fine. Once I turned 50 it was like a time bomb in my body was set off the disease switch turned on and everything that could go wrong went wrong. Physical chaos. And just think I never smoked, rarely drank and exercised on a regular basis!! Getting older is not for sissies! Ugh!!

It took the Lady gastro nurse two needles sticks and she was still unable to draw blood. Then the man nurse came and he got blood on the 3rd try. They must have taken at least 5 or 6 vials of my blood. Tired. Exhausted. I feel like a Vampire has drained my entire Life essence!

Got up with $80 and now down to Zero bucks. I just got a phone message from the Brooklyn Veterans Hospital for my 1:30 pm doctors appointment which obviously I will not be able to make today. Ran out of funds and none of the subways near me go straight there. I will have to move my VA appt to another day when I have both time and money.

Health care is expensive and time consuming. Yuck!!

Friday I go for my Vitamin Infusion injections which are for me an out of pocket expense Not covered by Health Insurance. Sadly in this country the good old US of A. Preventative Medicine and/or many Holistic technologies are not covered by insurance. Hmmmm…. Guess Big Pharma would have a fit if more Americans actually went to the Gym, Discounts to and for Health Food Stores, Health Spas, herbal, Natural or Holistic!!   I smell a Conspiracy!!

IRKSOME TO THE Nth DEGREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Broke-Ass Broad

Ms. DeBorah goes to the Financial Services Doctor. Finance Doctor asks for DeBorah’s wallet and bank statements. After some moments of silence while examining the wallets contents and the numbers on her bank statements Dr. Finance thoughtfully and deliberately announces her diagnosis.

Ms. DeBorah I’m very sorry to tell you this but due to your repeated doctor visits and prescriptions You Now have an Advanced Case of Broke-Itis. Your only hope is either more overtime, complete & total healing or instant Retirement.

This is a photo of me at age 42 right before graduating Cum Laude from Marymount Manhattan College. I would say at age 42 I reached my Peak Performance in terms of fitness. Perfect skin, shape, Hair (my Locs went down my back to my butt) stamina and endurance. I was in Excellent Great Shape. Wish I could return to that age and that physical condition.

Lack of Trust


 

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/trust/#like-250044

Trust

For me in terms of my personal experience Trust must be earned not given. I suppose because I’ve been in abusive situations my ability to trust humans has eroded over time. I no longer have faith in people like I once did and mostly keep to myself. The amount of lies and falsehoods folks tell is amazing. That’s why I don’t usually get involved with groups, causes or anything where I’d have to rely on other people or get involved in situations where I’d have to ask for help.

Nor do I like or enjoy going to any type of doctors. The only reason I’m engaging the medical profession now is because I’m in extreme unrelenting physical pain. Unfortunately in order to continue functioning in close to a normal manner I must allow these quacks to ponder, poke and prod me, fill me with pills and do who knows what else.

My Life experiences have made me a Loner, A Solitary, a type of hermit where if I did not go to work I’d have little or no interaction with human beings at all.  Most people are fakes and phonies only out for their own good with an agenda. Makes me quite happy to be in a relationship with me, myself and I.

As I know this controversial post will elicit judgmental negative comments and based on my past experience with spammers, flammers, hackers and stalkers and for my own health and safety I will Close Comments.

 

 

Young At Heart ~~ The Daily Post

Young At Heart

What are your thoughts on aging? How will you stay young at heart as you get older?

Before I answer the question first I wanted to share this New York Times article on elders views of aging.

The Wisdom of the Aged

For six New Yorkers age 85 and older, whose
lives were followed throughout the year, old
age is a mixture of happiness and sadness,
with less time wasted on anger and worry.
