Re: Help for arthritis?

folobatuyi ·
Hey Frenchy, The first question I have is what type of arthritis does your mom has? From the description you gave, it sounds like rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as opposed to osteoarthritis (OA)(aka degenerative/wear-and tear related arthritis). It is important to know the difference as the treatment for the two are different. Were the monthly shots corticosteriods, plaquenil or methotraxate? I am not sure why the shots are being stopped. Hopefully, the new doctor is a board certified...

She has rheumatoid arthritis. I don't know what the monthly injections were. Apparently, the shots were stopped because it (or something else she was taking) was affecting her liver (the amount of something was too high in her liver). The doctor is a certified rheumatologist, but I'd like to blow his head off right now because he still wants her to wait another week for the usual injection. Aspirin does not help. My father ended up taking her to the Emergency Room this afternoon and they...

My opinion on this topic and the related issue of abortion is similar to how Thurgood Marshall looked at capital punishment. If we can not say that we will always be certain that ONLY the guilty are put to death, capital punishment has to great of a legal and moral risk – the death of the innocent.

Human life begins at conception. We're not "full and complete " until they put us in the casket (or a few days afterward). All that's necessary to be considered a human being is to fall under a particular scientific naming category, correct? (Not asking if anyone agrees, just curious as to whether or not those tiny embryos in jars are considered Homo sapiens )

Re: RU486

Frenchy ·
I remember there being a big outcry about RU486 here. The perception is that you just pop a pill and that's that, which is far from the truth . I believe you can get the RU486 combination from any doctor who can establish how far along you are and treat you if something goes wrong, which is pretty dodgy. I don't think the demand for it is very strong here. I think surgical abortions are much safer and much more reliable and less stressful/traumatic on the woman.

I'm a bit surprised by this. The RU486 combination of drugs requires the woman to see a doctor for 3 separate visits, as opposed to one visit for a surgical abortion, it's not as effective as the surgical procedure, and the side-effects are much more severe and longer-lasting. Seems like it would be much more difficult for women who live in remote areas. Much applause that the counseling aspect of abortion isn't being ignored, though. And certainly women should have as many options on the...

I'm wondering why you think RU486 is not as effective as a surgical procedure? Do you mean a successful abortion or you mean health-wise. I think it's the lack of access to GP's who can/will perform the surgical procedure itself. I agree, having the most number of options is the ideal. A balanced approach to counselling is a priority.

Re: College "Education" Is BS

Have to agree with you on this one, EP. For the most part, colleges and universities are institutions of conformity. I say this with some insight, having worked at UCSF in administration for eleven years. In general, colleges and universities are a mirror of the values of society. And in this society, the reflection is capitalism and power. For US colleges and universities, government funding, corporate funding, private grants, and alumnae contributions, pretty much spell status quo.
