Bottom line...I feel as though my word, my honest word is being questioned. As though my honest word isn't good enough. I'm afraid it is a really sore point with me because there was a time when I wasn't so honest...And I doubt I could have spelled integrity, let alone knowing what it meant.

Please take a really close look at this last statement made in my so called 'vouch'. I laid out the facts as I know them. I also said that folks would have to make up their OWN MINDS about whether or not they would buy from King. Yes, there were problems in the beginning, I am not denying that for a second. I also said that he and I had worked out those problems between ourselves. I had enough confidence in what we had worked out that I was willing to continue with him. Then, I stated: For MYSELF ONLY, I have no qualms in ordering from him. Please note those 2 words, myself only. I was not saying everyone should suddenly jump up and rush off to e-mail him. I simply said for myself only. If that is vouching for someone, then think what you will. In my mind, I was not vouching for him. I simply stated things for myself only. Jad (Sep 10, 2012 | post #96)
Well, I sent the blasted pictures. Now watch Painboi tell us all how I've obviously faked them in some way. Or they aren't good or clear enough, or any of hundred other reasons he can dream up which tells him, without a single doubt in HIS mind, that I am so deep into this so called scam, there is no redeeming me...And no one should ever believe another word I have to say. I DO NOT appreciate having my honesty questioned, especially by someone who knows nothing about me or my personal values and integrity. Jad (Sep 10, 2012 | post #93)
Painboi isn't going to be happy until he finds another reason to support his accusations. (Whether it is based on evidence or not.) He'll likely decide the photos aren't good enough, or I have faked them in some way. Clearly, I must be part of the scam because Painboi says so. Anyone who knows me personally knows I am absolutely a man of my word. I simply do not see a reason to lie about most things, especially on a forum so over-run with suspicion that even a simple mistake or lapse in memory immediately sets off a hue and cry that the person who made the mistake absolutely MUST be scamming in some way. All of this is usually based on no evidence whatsoever, but because the accuser has been on the board a long time, they MUST be right, always. Often Painboi is right about his suspicions that some seller is scamming...But he is also wrong sometimes. Not that I have seen him admit it all that often. I say that King Shocker has made things right with me. Right enough that I am willing to make more orders. But my WORD simply isn't good enough. Now he want pictures as well. Why do I have to prove I am telling the truth about King Shocker making it right with me?? Because Painboi says so. If I don't send him those pictures, well...I must be part of the scam too. Even if I do send him the pictures, something about them won't be right, so I must be part of the scam too. There is never going to be enough evidence of truth for Painboi. My proven history of being truthful isn't proof enough. I seriously doubt the pictures will be proof enough. If I don't send the pictures, I am part of the scam. If I do send the pictures, I am part of the scam. It won't matter what I say, or what I do...I am going to continue to be part of the scam. And all because Painboi says so. Jad (Sep 10, 2012 | post #82)
So, my word isn't good enough for you. PM me your e-mail address and I'll send you the pictures privately. Will that suit your suspicious little mind? Jad (Sep 10, 2012 | post #75)
Okay folks, let's get a little truth going here so people will get off King's back. Yes, there were all the mix ups at the beginning that had me calling King Shocker a scammer. BUT...He has gone to some lengths to not only make it right with me. I have since ordered from him, successfully, a couple more times. In fact I placed yet another order for the 40mgs just a day or so back. Do I expect to get them, yes I do. He communicates well, gets my tracking to me quickly and even though they are coming from Costa Rica, they arrive here in about 10 days from the time I make my order. Initially, I called King out as a scammer. We have since worked things out and I do not believe he is going to scam me again. He has made everything right with me, even including a couple of extra 20mgs to make up for the lack of overnight shipping from the initial lost order. (To this day, neither of us know where it went. But I've had things 'lost' in the mail myself recently, so I am not blaming King Shocker for the initial order going missing.) It is up to others to decide for themselves if they want to buy from him or not. For myself only, I have no qualms in ordering from him. Jad (Sep 10, 2012 | post #67)
It's not doctor shopping at all, if all you are doing is trying to find the right doctor for you. Folks who doctor shop are the ones getting multiple prescriptions written for their 'pain' and then heading off to different pharmacies to have those prescriptions filled. Trying to find the right doctor for you is just common sense, seeing how many bad doctors there are out there. It isn't doctor shopping by any stretch of the imagination. When we have work done on our home, for example, you talk to several contractors before making a decision on which one is best for you. Talking to several doctors is the same thing. After all, this doctor (contractor) is going to be working on your body (home), so they had better be the right one for you...Or you could end up with all kinds of complications from various drug interactions/incor rect procedures.

I start with the headache that will morph into a migraine. Shortly after that, the light starts to bother me. I'm soon ripping out my hearing aids because sound begins blasting through my skull like a bass guitar on heavy reverb. Usually, less than 2 hours after I wake up with that kind of headache, I'm tucked up in bed again, trying not to move too much because movement seems to set of rounds of vomiting. By the time everything is in full swing, any light, sound or movement makes things so much worse in terms of the pain. I can feel it beating away inside my head, right along with my heart beat. This can go on for several hours, or several days...Depending on how hard it has hit me to begin with. The next day my skull feels like it is made of egg shells and I am creeping around very carefully, avoiding bright light, loud sounds and sudden movement...Because it is all too easy to set off another migraine when my head feels that fragile. After I realized what a nitwit my doctor is, and before I found my way back onto the gray/black market...I was swallowing OTC painkillers by the literal handful. I can't take NSAIDs anymore because they simply rip up my guts too much. I have found some medications that work for me, and those are the ones I tend to keep in the house for bad pain days. (I have other conditions unrelated to the migraines that can cause me a great deal of pain.) So, basically I am taking what I need, when I need it...and not popping pills on a daily basis. Not sure if that makes me dependent or not though. If the pain is not bad, I can go days at a time, taking nothing at all. But when the pain is bad, you can bet I want something in the house that is stronger than just plain Tylenol! The thing I truly hate about doctors, (and is part of the reason I have given up on them), is they never like whatever a previous doctor has put you on, and they immediately want you off all that, and on whatever they intend to prescribe. Then there is the usual pattern of trying all the anti drugs, (anti-allergy, anti-depressants etc etc) before, as an absolute last resort...and sometimes not even then...They prescribe some kind of pain medication. I've had several doctors over the past 5-6 years because I move, they move, they change their practice etc...And every single one of them has followed the exact same pattern. No wonder I am tired of it. How about reading my medical history, or listening to me before deciding to take me off everything I'm already taking, only to replace them with something else...which is usually far more expensive. Dealing with the gray/black market could possibly get me into all kinds of trouble...But for the moment, I have found what works for me, and I'll do what is necessary to keep those medications in the house. Doctors, government and media can get stuffed. Jad (Sep 8, 2012 | post #18)
The rest of the staff seem to appreciate the Chocolate Fairy paying his annual visit to them. Yes, my British friend knows about the Chocolate Fairy...Which is why I think she brings so much every year. It's been like this for almost 10 years now, so it has become something of a tradition with our company. And who am I to break with tradition? :) Jad (Sep 7, 2012 | post #82)
Nope, not one word of positive feedback. Interesting. Jad (Sep 7, 2012 | post #10)
Yea, I definitely get migraines. Had my first one less than a year after an accident that broke my right femur and gave me the horror concussion from hell. I was warned then that migraines would likely show up in the near future. Oh boy, they sure did. I have learned that the higher my blood pressure the more likely I'll have a migraine, so I am very diligent about taking my BP meds. I don't get any kind of aura, but I wake up with a certain kind of headache that I know from experience will morph into a migraine later in the day. Mine go in a strange kind of cycle. I might go 2 or 3 months without so much as a twinge, and then get hit with 5 migraines in 14 days. Then things will go quiet again for a month or so, only to hit again with several more. There doesn't seem to be any real reason for it. But that is just how it is for me. I've found some medications work wonders, and others are worse than useless. None of which my own doctor will ever prescribe...Hence my using the gray/black market to get whatever I can find that I know works for me. (This is the same doctor who thought lowering my Testosterone would help with lowering my cholesterol!! I told her exactly where to put THAT idea.) She has also wanted to prescribe anti-allergy meds, anti-depressants and anti-convulsants. All of which I have said no to taking. Honestly, the side effects alone are scary enough...And none came with any real hope of actually working...Because other doctors at other times have prescribed exactly the same medications, with the exact same results. Meaning, they didn't do a thing to stop the migraines, or help with the pain when I do have one. I miss our chats too. The mini-boss and big boss have been keeping me quite busy, even more so than usual for this time of year. Soon as I get a break, I'll shoot you a post and catch up. Jad (Sep 7, 2012 | post #15)
You do get used to it, honest. I've had to give myself an IM shot every 2 weeks for the past 20+ years...So, I know how it can be right at the beginning when it is all new and scary. I do the draw with a 20G needle...cause the medication is in an oil base, so it's very thick. Then I switch over to a skinny 27G needle for the actual shot. Usually takes a minute or so to do the injecting because of that oil base. I switch around where I do the injection each time, and always have sterile swabs to make sure everything is clean and safe. Never had a problem with giving myself the shot, but I am so used to it now I barely even think about it. It'll be scary the first few times, but you'll soon get used to giving yourself a shot. Good luck. Jad (Sep 7, 2012 | post #5)
I looked...So many user names all attached to the same e-mail address. It was very interesting reading. Jad (Sep 7, 2012 | post #7)
Gee, I must be a serious minority because I don't really like chocolate all that much. <hanging head in shame> A British friend of mine brings me about 10 pounds of really good (and quite expensive) English/European chocolate every year...and I give most of it away to the rest of the staff. I keep, maybe, a pound of it for myself...But rarely finish even that little bit each year. Now, if we're talking Original Gourmet Cotton Candy Lollipops, that is my personal addiction. I easily eat 3 or more of those a day, every day. I usually buy them directly from the manufacturers in 3 pound boxes. (It has about 60 pops inside.) When I am stuck in long meetings, I generally have one or two tucked away in my iPad bag so I don't have to keep rolling out to have a smoke. I love that they are on a plastic stick so they don't get all soggy the way paper sticks do. I actually get a bit touchy when I can see the bottom of the box and my new order hasn't arrived yet. I'd be willing to bet if someone took away all my lollipops, I'd likely go straight into withdrawal. Yep, I think I am totally addicted to them. Jad (Sep 7, 2012 | post #79)
Busy, to put it into one word. Been to lots of meetings with various department heads, and was assessed for a new drug study yesterday. (For a new migraine drug that doesn't even have a name yet.) Didn't qualify because I take Trazodone for insomnia, and they didn't think it all that fair to ask me to give up getting a good nights sleep just to test their new drug. No problems though. There will be other studies I may qualify for in the future. Jad (Sep 6, 2012 | post #13)
