We hear lies all the time. Of course we know that when a politician says "no new taxes," he is lying. But then there are the more subtle lies that aren't so easily spotted. Here are five lies you should watch out for.
No one seemed to think this was an emergency case, and being out of state we had no medical resources who knew us personally. We arrived at the medical building and saw the pulmonologist who sounded amazingly confident (after x-rays and CATscans) as she explained that Randy was suffering from Valley Fever, a common but serious malady affecting the Bakersfield area and causing similar complaints. She advised us to go to Scripp's Clinic in LaJolla for further testing and diagnosis.
As a caregiver, I felt hopelessly inadequate. I felt responsible for Randy 24-hours a day. The worst part was not knowing what it was. At home, listening to him scream in pain I often wondered if he was going to die. If you can face your enemy head on it's so much easier! But we were getting hit from all directions at once. Sometimes people forget that caregivers need as much help and support as the severely injured person. When a severe injury happens it traumatizes the whole family!
Now, if you happen to be overweight, and more people are overweight every day, or if you sit around all day on your job, and don't exercise, you're probably already on the road to high blood pressure. And the more fat around your midsection, the more trouble you're likely to be in.
It was to be eight months after the injury that Dr. S__, with the aid of fluoroscopy, discovered the cause of the pain - a broken rib that had penetrated the disk, crushing a nerve in the T-8 and T-9 area. That part of the thoracic spine regulates function of the chest muscles, heart, lungs, etc... thus, the reason for the symptoms in those areas!
However, it was not just the disallowed goals that did the Bolts in; it was not being able to capitalize on two other opportunities, a clean breakaway by Jeff Halpern and a penalty shot by St. Louis that were stonewalled by Antero Niittymaki.
You can help yourself from being a victim of this most potent condition by seeing a heart specialist. There are heart doctor that specialize in electrical activity of the heart.
This is the first season Scrubs will air on ABC. Through seven seasons on NBC, fans watched as medical interns John Dorian (J.D.), Christopher Turk (Turk), and Elliot Reid became fully-fledged attending physicians at the not-so-glamorous Sacred heart hospital. Its unique sense of humor, largely driven by each character's flaws (and J.D.'s random daydreams), captured a segment of dedicated fans. That segment, however, was not large enough for NBC, and Scrubs dodged cancellation threats year after year.
Learning Lexie's true paternity was only the beginning for these two. Just as they would overcome one obstacle, another would come hurdling their way. Lexie has slept with three other men while married to Abe, including Abe's own brother Jonas and Abe's biological son (in Lexie's defense, no one knew Brandon was Abe's son at the time). Abe forgave her every time, Ahmet Yılmaz Doğum even accepting partial blame for the last affair because he suffered from temporary impotency.
We finally pushed and tugged Randy forward. Later he confided that he wasn't certain which fear was the greatest... that he would be healed or that he wouldn't be healed! After all, a lot of people go to healing conferences and they don't get healed. And really, when you see people fall down and claim to be healed, are they really healed or is it a bunch of emotionalism and hype, or worse? We were about to find out.
There are hundreds of common lies that we are told by "experts," politicians, and salesmen. Sometimes we can spot the lie a mile away, and other times they are subtle and believable. Sometimes they are lies we want to hear.
