Ostomies and pot

Posted by gutenberg, on Wed Sep 18, 2013 4:52 pm
Many thanks three, would I be pushing my luck to ask you how you manage to do this, I copied and printed the last time you explained this but now I can`t find it, so if you`re so inclined this time I`ll make a few copies so to be sure to be able to find one.
And yes I understated my reaction, especially to Megan, the tears were really there, Ed

Hi Ed,

Here's the steps to embed a video in your post:

Step 1: when you're typing your post in the blue-framed box and you get to the place in your post where you want the video to appear, click the little "YouTube" icon in the bottom row of icons along the top of the blue-framed box you're typing inside;

Step 2: after you click the YouTube icon in Step 1, your computer screen will take on a grey hue and a box will appear telling you to "Enter YouTube URL" — paste the address for your YouTube video in that box and click "OK";

Step 3: you will not see the YouTube video in your post until you preview your post; however, you will see the YouTube address for that video inside square brackets that open and close with the word "Flash".

Many thanks three,  you may have noticed I'm not really computer literate, I have figured out the things I want to do and sometimes manage to get my message across. If you seen the post I did with all the oldies, Jimi Hendrix and company, it took me hours to paste in all them pictures and learned a lesson, don't try that again anytime soon. I have watched that Sanjay Gupta documentary about five times and each time it grabs me by the throat, I wonder hoW many minds will change after watching this show. Thanks again three, really appreciated. Ed

Your welcome Ed.  Even though I may know a miniscule amount more about a few computer-related topics, in the chat room I completely relate to what you recently said about your slow typing — on the few occasions I've tried to survive in there, the most common message I saw on my screen was "Are you still there three?"

Hi again wounded doe, how are you?Dont worry about digging out those links for me, im sure you have many other things to be doing with your time, and besides i could easily find the info myself if i wasnt so lazy, its not laziness mind, Its the endless trawling through all those web pages repeating the same info over and over.As you said, everyone is affected differently so i'm just gonna be thankfull for the remission the remicade is giving me at the moment, I'll worry about the side effects if and when they turn up in the future.
Thanks for your warm welcome and kind words though wd. Good luck, speak again soon, sean.

And my advice for today: If the good Lord didn't want us to smoke pot he would have given us gills, so have a nice day, Ed

Thanks for replying. So I guess you're wearing the bag now. Don't make the same mistake I did. When you smoke and cough make sure you hold your stomach in,hard, with your hands. Otherwise you'll end up needing a mesh surgery to put your intestines back where they belong.

Okay! I thought I ought to put this subject toverse even though I don't know much about it.  Thanks everyone for the inspiration.

OSTOMIES AND POT.

I must say I don’t know a lot
about the way people take pot.
For I don’t take it personally
not even just occasionally.

But I have known folks from my past
whose use of pot was pretty vast.
They taught and showed me what to do
I ought to know what they all knew.

Back then I’d little interest
and didn’t even want to test.
However, I would not contemn     (scorn)
nor would I ever them condemn.

I think we have the freedom to
do the things that we want to.
If that means using the hemp weed
other people should accede.
  
Some got pot and supplicate        (appeal to authority)--
they say it’s great to medicate.  
Most of the folks that I know now
will simply use it anyhow.

Cannabis has been shown to be
good, should you have an ostomy.
It calms the mood and eases strain.
and pot can do a lot for pain.

Prescription drugs they say are best
but they don’t stand up to the test.
So at the time we’ve had enough
we are primed for other stuff.

So no one should attempt to stop
anyone from taking pot.
If it’s good I can’t see why
we should not give the pot a try.

We already grow it in our gardens with the cattle and horses grazing off the weeds, but not goats! Goats are bad people.. just kidding. Our goats do eat it though, not the horses or cows they don't like it, but the dogs eat it. I love to garden anyway flowers, trees, food. Can't do that now because my gut stump gets sunburned if I am out in the sun. It burns through my clothes. Does anyone else have this problem?

If we could get it I would definetly try it. I listened to Montel Williams talk on tv about how much it has helped him with his MS.

Hi Gary, thanks for asking, we're almost back to normal, for me that is. I guess losing a few body parts can keep one on ones toes. Take care, and don't swallow the roach, Ed

Taking prescription drugs including anti-acme and anti-biotics is what gave me UC in the first place. Then the prednesone given to me while fighting UC has landed me with AVN in both hips that will require replacement.

And yet pot is bad right...

Yea, I'm going to smoke some pot to relieve the pain in my hips and relax and the feds and their FDA can blow me.

Hey Ed,
What's one more toke over the line among good friends? As Tiny Tim Cratchit used to say, "God Bless us. Everyone".

Yo PB, one toke over the line made for one good song, especially if you were over the line and A Merry Christmas to you, Ed
