The World Didn’t Change, We Did
I visited the doctor this week. Nothing serious, but thanks for asking.
I only bring this up because it is so unusual; I NEVER go to the doctor. I avoid doctors like, well, like the plague.
And if our collective experience over the last couple years is any evidence, I’d say my longstanding strategy to avoid ‘medical professionals’ turned out to be well founded. I predict when I am 236 years old, someone will ask me what my secret to long life was and I will tell them, “Eat your veggies, have a glass of wine with dinner and avoid all doctors!”
Regardless, I needed to refill a very minor (and my only) prescription which had run out recently. Complicating this very boring situation was the fact that I never bothered to pick a new doctor when I moved from the People’s Republic of Portland to Free Florida over two years ago. Time to find a new doctor!
Now don’t think for a second that I had somehow forgotten our collective experience with the ‘medical’ industry over the last 3 years. Images of professionally choreographed (by whom?) dancing nurses bounced through my head as I made the temporary concession to see a ‘doctor’ to refill my small 8-dollar prescription. And when I finally landed on a ‘doctor’ to visit, trust me, my skepticism was on high alert.
I have to say that, considering our shared experiences of illegal mask mandates, combative businesses and the imprisonment of patriots for insisting on the ‘my body, my choice’ precedent to refuse medical mandates,
I have to say that I was a little apprehensive as I walked up to the medical office building for my appointment that day! I simply didn’t know what to expect.
Remember: I hadn’t visited a doctor in three years. I simply didn’t know if the off-Broadway Dancing Nurse troupe and Mask Mandate Enforcement Brigade that guarded the front desk would scream at my beautifully unmasked face and order me, without authority, to don a paper face diaper or require some other useless ritual just to see the Great and Magnificent ‘doctor.’
And it was for this reason I built the BreathEasy app in the first place. BreathEasy gives patriots the ability to flag woke businesses so that OTHER patriots will know beforehand to avoid them. BreathEasy is our tool to starve the beast of our hard – earned dollars and build the parallel economy one BreathEasy vote at a time.
Unfortunately for me, nobody had voted on any medical establishments in my area yet! So, I had the honor of being the advance guard to test the waters for my fellow patriots nearby. And, yes, I opened the BreathEasy app and voted!
Here's the good news: Nobody accosted my beautiful, unmasked face. There were no Karens calling the police nor were there any minimum wage guards handing me a paper slave muzzle; I was able to enter the building and ride the elevator to the doctor’s office in peace. It almost felt like 2019 in there. Almost…
But here’s the bad news: I am over 50 which I presume is some sort of milestone age in medical circles. As soon as I walked in, I felt like a limping wildebeest separated from the herd just waiting to get billed into oblivion by these hyenas of the medical Serengeti. And when the ‘doctor’ finally met me (for the first time) in the examination room, he could barely contain his excitement at his dumb luck of getting an over-50 male with good insurance.
Unfortunately for him, I am in excellent health. I eat right, I am not overweight, I go to the gym 4 times a week and I have a brain in my head. But that didn’t stop the Pfizer Pitchman! As he entered the examination room, his first words to me were,
“You’re 50! You’re halfway done!”
This is the man I am supposed to entrust my longevity to???
I swear to God, I should have walked out right then…
After a few very perfunctory questions, this ‘doctor’ began prescribing all manner of blood tests, probes, medications, cameras and scopes to be inserted in all the most inconvenient of places. And all this happened in the first 10 minutes of the very first visit with absolutely ZERO medical records to inform his ‘professional opinion’ (remember, I don’t go to doctors, so no records). I swear I saw two tiny $’s in the pupils of his eyes as he entered the tiny examination room.
Get this: One of the medications he prescribed was an acid reflux medication. And when I told him, “I don’t have acid reflux” do you know what he said? He said, “You may have reflux without even realizing it, it’s just best to get you on this medication now.”
Wow. It really was 2019 in there. Did I suddenly have ‘Asymptomatic Acid Reflux??’ Did he honestly think he could peddle the same lines that worked before the recent COVID unpleasantness?
So at the end of the appointment, this doctor had signed me up for two exploratory procedures, a litany of blood tests, prescribed an unnecessary medication and recommended yet another ‘injectable’ medication that he called a ‘cure’ but, when pressed, revealed that the ‘cure’ wears off after a few months! My God, this guy was swinging for the fences, wasn’t he?
Finally on the other side of this medical minefield and on my way out the door, I paid my co-pay and just got the hell out of there; I felt dirty. I had brushed up against medical corruption and every fiber in my being screamed, ‘run away!’
In the days following this appointment, I replayed the episode in my mind and I realized something. This ‘doctor’ wasn’t to blame; he was doing the only thing he knew how to do: prescribe drugs. This had ALWAYS been the system we lived under and which we all suspected to some degree or another. It’s just that it had become undeniable now. ‘Horse de-wormer,’ anyone?
And then I realized the most important thing: the system hadn’t changed, it had always been thus. It was I who had changed.
Our shared experience worldwide has changed ALL of us and how we perceive the world we were born into. No longer do we trust authority blindly like we did before. We are skeptical, we are questioning, we are distrustful of the organs of authority positioned over us. And this applies in the political realm just as much as the medical. These ‘authority figures’ sold their credibility on the alter of tyranny and compliance and it will be decades before they get it back. They mistakenly believed that their success was measured in dollars when in fact, it is measured in trust.
But the good news is that we see it now! Collectively, we now look at modern doctors as co-opted, corrupt salesmen for an industry who has no interest in curing us at all.
Granted, some of us came to this conclusion decades ago, but many of us have only realized it recently. These latecomers are watching their friends, relatives and acquaintances drop dead from a ‘safe and effective’ injection cruelly called a ‘vaccine' and they are joining our ranks daily.
I foresee a drastically different future for the medical profession after all the damage they’ve done to themselves. I predict the medical profession will regress towards what it does best: setting bones and prescribing chicken soup. And to this I say, “GOOD!” How many medications do we take to counteract the side effects of yet other drugs? Isn’t it just smarter to avoid the Merry Go ‘Round of side-effects treatment altogether?
And, in case you were wondering: I filled the one little prescription I needed and cancelled the rest.
Patriot, we, together, have awakened to the true nature of the forces arrayed against us on a myriad of fronts. It is incumbent upon us to change the game and write new rules for ourselves. We are no longer ignorant participants in our own slaughter. We are taking charge.
