Fake fibromyalgia

You really have a problem with people questioning your unethical attitude, don't you? No. You're a crank who's posting on an internet forum known far and wide for starting drama, claiming to have inside information into unethical and borderline illegal prescribing practices in this area. By State and Federal law, you are required to notify the TBI and DEA of this suspicion, as well as local law enforcement and the attending physicians you are dispensing for. Have you done that? Or are you just posting on here to stir up trouble because - Oh God - someone's on opiate pain medications. Since you're dispensing drugs for fibromyalgia, you should have a working knowledge of the pathophysiology and theory behind why things like TCAs and Antidepressants work on pain caused from the disease. The fact that you're on here labeling FM sufferers as either mentally ill or fat tells me that you have no idea about what you're talking about, and you're only trying to seem witty. It seems ironic that multiple national bodies on Pain Control have issued guidelines on the treatment of fibromyalgia pain, yet you seem to be convinced that it's all a big scam to get opiod pain control agents into the hands of addicts. And another thing, while we're on the subject - it is not your duty as a Pharmacist to question or diagnose people as addicts because they are on pain control medication. It is your job to dispense that medication as a retail pharmacist based on a legitimate MD order, question that order if it seems inappropriate, and notify legal authorities if improper prescribing is occurring. The fact that someone requires opioids or opiates for pain control due to Chronic Pain does not make them an addict. It makes them a patient with a chronic medical condition. You have none of that patient's medical record, none of their medical history, and none of the knowledge the attending physician for that patient has. How dare you attempt to diagnose someone with a medical condition like opiate addiction, and then pretend to set on a moral high horse while judging them. Do your damn job, and fill the script, and keep your personal opinions out of it. Especially when those opinions aren't supported by Evidence Based Medicine or Scientific Research.  (Oct 12, 2012 | post #8)

Fake fibromyalgia

So we're supposed to believe a disease is fake because a person on the internet claiming to be a Pharmacist says so, versus mountains of Evidence-Based Scientific Research in the last ten years which points to there actually being something wrong with fibromyalgia patients that's not related to obesity or inactivity? You're just as much of a crank as anyone who promotes homoepathy.  (Oct 12, 2012 | post #3)

What has an atheist done for you lately?

Well, considering as of this point in the week I've resuscitated one victim of cardiac arrest, and treated numerous other people as a Volunteer Paramedic for everything from Traumatic Injuries to Diabetic Emergencies, I'd say I've helped other people plenty as an Atheist. Or were you just trying to troll?  (Sep 19, 2012 | post #10)

who is the county coroner now?

As far as I know. It takes something really, really horrible to happen for a medical board to yank your license. They have a "gentlemen's agreement" with the physicians they oversee that regulation of incompetent/neglig ent practice is best left to employers and the civil courts, and they're rather hesitant to yank a license someone spent 15 years of their life for. That's not saying what Dr. Smith does is negligent or incompetent. It's just illustrating a fact. The linked order is actually an "greed act. It's an administrative court equivalent of a plea bargain. Basically, he voluntarily surrendered certain privileges of his license to avoid harsher penalties should he have had to go in front of the medical board to explain his actions. Since the acts in the scope of the case that was brought in front of the board pertained specifically to his function as the medical examiner, and not as a practicing general medicine doc, that was what they limited themselves to addressing.  (Jul 13, 2012 | post #16)

Michael Smith is not allowed by a Tennessee Medical Board order to practice as a Medical Examiner, or perform death investigations, in the State of Tennessee. http://health.stat e.tn.us/licensure/ DisplayPdf.aspx?pr ofCode=1606&Li censeNum=8334& ActionDate=5/24/20 11 That's the link to the board order preventing him from doing so.  (Jul 13, 2012 | post #13)

Christians Stand Up

Not sure if stupid, Or troll. I'm an Atheist. Your lampooning of the Christian faith does nothing to offend me. Grow up, and realize that, in the words of Jon Stewart: "YOU ARE NOT HELPING." The statement I made was taken from the writings of the founding fathers of the United States around the time of the revolution, and AFTER the founding of our republic. "Actual History" is that there was a wide mixture of Christian and Secular Deists in the continental congress and the proceedings afterwords towards the Articles of Confederation and the constitutional congress. There is no evidence, at all, to indicate that the founding fathers were anything less than Protestants and Deists. There MAY have been an atheist, but there is very little evidence to support that. I don't believe as they do, but as long as they do not attempt to legislate their beliefs, or use them to discriminate against others, they have every right to personally express them.  (Jun 29, 2012 | post #78)

Christians Stand Up

The founding fathers were not Atheists. They were a mixture of Deists and protestant Christians. Many of them, by their own writings - however, abhorred and scolded the history of the Christian church for their behavior and habit of not only taking advantage of their believers, but also of their inhumanity towards nonbelievers, even Christians of different denominations. If you're going to champion history, don't revise it to fit an agenda. It backfires.  (Jun 29, 2012 | post #70)

How this thread has gone: How I See It: "ALL GAYS ARE EVIL. THE BIBLE SAYS SO. THEY ARE ABOMINATIONS. IT'S A CHOICE. LEVITICUS! YOUR BELIEFS ARE WRONG BECAUSE MY BIBLE SAYS SO. STUDY YOUR BIBLE LIKE I DO AND YOULL JUST KNOW." Rational People: "Why should we believe what you say, and the irrational hatred you spew, for people who have done nothing wrong and victimized no one, when you make appeals to tradition and authority, and don't even realize that your own source has been altered and edited in violation of it's very commandments? " How I see It: "You can't say that! That's persecution!"  (Jun 22, 2012 | post #360)

How many of those buildings had a 255,000 lb aircraft slam into them , throttle wide open, and loaded with 11,489 Gallons of Jet-A, which would be the specifications for a 757-200? Didn't think so.  (Jun 22, 2012 | post #51)

Oh, I see. Because I don't believe the story your book tells you, then I hate the bible? Like I said before, the bible is a wonderful work of fiction from an age of people who were struggling to understand the world around them, and to document the cultural morals and values they held two thousand years before the advent of our civilization. But it's nothing more than that. The fact that you have to try to villify people who believe differently than you as the only way you have to prove your belief (i.e. "BELIEVE AS I DO OR YOUR A CHILD MOLESTING PERVERT, SINNER!"), is very telling of how much you base your "faith" on. I'm glad people like you claim to be Christian. Without your religion and the fear it puts in you, you'd be free to rape, murder, and pillage all across the countrysideI am? Better tell these people they're wrong. http://www.science direct.com/science /article/pii/S0160 289608001013 Atheists score 1.95 IQ points higher than Agnostics, 3.82 points higher than Liberal persuasions, and 5.89 IQ points higher than Dogmatic persuasions. Denominations differ significantly in IQ and income. Religiosity declines between ages 12 to 17. It is suggested that IQ makes an individual likely to gravitate toward a denomination and level of achievement that best fit his or hers particular level of cognitive complexity. Ontogenetically speaking this means that contemporary denominations are rank ordered by largely hereditary variations in brain efficiency (i.e. IQ). In terms of evolution, modern Atheists are reacting rationally to cognitive and emotional challenges, whereas Liberals and, in particular Dogmatics, still rely on ancient, pre-rational, supernatural and wishful thinking.  (Jun 20, 2012 | post #345)

The book you base your idiotic beliefs upon has been edited numerous times by multiple different groups, church denominations, and political entities. This is not even debated. This is historical fact. This may be hard for you to fathom, but there are people who do not believe in a God. They do not need to. The world is so much more mysterious, beautiful and amazing knowing that we are so, so miniscule and unimportant on a universal scale, and that every phenomenon has an explanation, even if we are unable to understand it at this point in our culture or technology. It's rather interesting to note that Atheism and Agnosticism is correlated with higher intellgience than fundamentalistical ly religious people. And it definately shows hereHomosexuality is well documented in over 1,500 species in nature.  (Jun 20, 2012 | post #340)

That's a blatant lie. The KIDS can talk all they want about their religion. Students still have the freedom of religious expression all they want. The TEACHERS cannot force their religion onto the kids.  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #325)

You just got caught in a blatent lie. Unless you can actually read the Greek and Latin language, and have access to the original letters and collected works of the early Christian church which were compiled over 200 years after the man called Christ's death, you can't prove this statement, either. All you have is "The bible is unaltered because the bible says so" This is a logical fallacy known as Begging the Question. http://www.nizkor. org/features/falla cies/begging-the-q uestion.html It is not debated, at all, among people who legitimately study the bible, from a cultural, historical, and archeological standpoint, that the various translations throughout the past 1800 years have altered the wording of the bible and the meaning of various scripture to support the political and ecclesiastical policies of the churches. The wording and interpretation of the bible is as varied and different among each translation as the denominations which use them. The Church of England has a different Bible than the Catholics. The Catholics have a different bible than the Eastern Orthodox. The Eastern Orthodox have a different translation than the Southern Baptists, who have a different translation than the Mormons. 1 John 2:4, "He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him." - Christian Bible, NIV.  (Jun 19, 2012 | post #314)

Did you just claim the bible has never been edited to conform to the teachings of a particular church or political regieme? http://dangerousin tersection.org/200 6/10/22/who-change d-the-bible-and-wh y-bart-ehrmans-sta rtling-answers/ We have only error ridden copies, and the vast majority of these are centuries removed from the originals and different from them, evidently, in thousands of ways. - Bart Ehrmanm, Author, Misquoting Jesus http://en.wikipedi a.org/wiki/King_Ja mes_Bible James gave the translators instructions intended to guarantee that the new version would conform to the ecclesiology and reflect the episcopal structure of the Church of England and its belief in an ordained clergy.[9] The translation was done by 47 scholars, all of whom were members of the Church of England. - Darnell, 2003.  (Jun 18, 2012 | post #284)
