it's all incredibly scary and so devastating..... So many people dead all over the world...it's horrible. I can't stand Trump he scares the wits out of me......and now all this be other crude feels like it's all part of his agenda!Life ends too soon for us all. Easy to forget. We are not here long. We are a vapor, morning dew and by late morning we're gone. I remember standing on our porch shouting to some kids asking as they rode by on their bikes, who they had for their teacher next year in fourth grade, thinking, "Man, I'm growing up fast. Fourth Grade Baby!" The next dimension is going to be so cool, words can't describe it. Forever and forever.
The women selected were linguists, mathematicians, and crossword experts, some held degrees in mathematics, physics and engineering and their logical and lateral thinking was highly valued. Instinct had nothing to do with it. Don’t believe what you see in the films.
We see this with young chimps when they're given toy cars and dolls to play with.A similar test was shown in a TV programme. Researchers put toys on the ground below a troupe of monkeys, the females selected the dolls, the males were interested in the mechanical toys eg moving wheels. However, these were adults so it was difficult to decide whether this was learnt behaviour, but there is some evidence that maternal is an instinct in monkeys, but might not be in humans - psychologists refer to drives in humans rather than instincts, because a drive can be over-ridden.
.i have come to the belief that intuition is primarily a defense that women use as an excape from their inability to utilize logic. altho men may have the intuitive ability, men prefer to use logic to solve problems.Researchers would disagree.
this is a weakness that unfortunately women are unable to overcome, since it serves their interest well; given the desire of men to supress women's unhidden abilities of logical reasoning.
this just my opinion...others might disagree.
intuition comes from practice, and the kinds of things you work on to acquire skills are driven by interests driven partly by genetics.Intuition is not born of some mindless, inbuilt ability, but is gained by observation, logical deduction and practice. It is an intelligent, learnt response.
If you want to talk about inhumane treatment of pain patients:Never assume that a doctor is intelligent merely because they're a doctor. I know that from an experience with a doctor I once had. She had the audacity to compare what I was taking for chronic pain with her experience taking a low dose Percocet. My last exchange with a physicians assistant pissed me off big time because she claimed my dose was way too high, even though I've been on and off opiates for 12 years now. Dumb woman!!!
My friend, having been diagnosed as having Weigners disease, was told she had 2 years to live.
16 years later, having been inadvertently infected with Hep C 10 years earlier by the hospital conducting her care for all those years, and having been prescribed a steadily increasing dose of opiates for the pain associated with her crumbling facial bones and neck vertebrae - guess what?
NHS brings in a zero tolerance policy regarding long term opiate prescription and during a hospitalization for a minor fall decided to put their Hep C patient into forced opiate withdrawal.
For those of you who are not familiar, a forced opiate withdrawal is life threatening for a Hep C patient. Withdrawal exacerbates the Hep C. The exacerbated Hep C causes damage to the liver, and my friend 'the Weigners patient' that was requiring the pain killer was left unable to ingest opiates.
I've never been so angry in all my life. I printed the Hep C info off the net and gave it to the doctor responsible for the decision who couldn't find enough nurses to put between us before he slunk off. I daresay he hadn't bothered to read my friends file that had built up over 16 years to require a trolley of it's own...
...but why would a trained doctor put a regular Hep C patient into forced withdrawal from a 16 year opiate prescription anyway?
Based on the fact that a forced withdrawal will exacerbate Hep C and destroy the liver, what benefit could there be in forcing an opiate withdrawal on a Hep C patient?
