     Kommentar till en text av Ardith Hinton
Ärende: Duck, Duck... GOOSE!
============================
05-02-05  22:23, Ardith Hinton told James Bradley about Pluggin' Along...  1.

Hello Ardith:

PS (Pre-Script?): I suspect I'm starting to cover ground I've presented before,
but the hurtin' is foggin' the noggin', so I'm just going to have to say it
again. <-;

 AH> You'd indicated that you don't suffer fools 
 AH> gladly when you're in pain
 AH> ... and I see that you communicate in a direct manner, which I
 AH> personally  prefer to the "nice" way some folks have of avoiding the 
 AH> real issues!  What I meant was that you're making 
 AH> officialdom aware of what your needs are, and by doing so 
 AH> you are also helping others.  Dallas & do the same.  We 

After I fell through the cracks, I wanted to take up as much space as I could
whilst there, so no one else would fit. <G>

Effective? Not always. Annoying? I'm sure, but I'd had plenty of annoyances,
and far be it for the perpetrators not to realize how their policies or
practices have affected me. It's a shame that the two doctors who were most to
blame for my inappropriate care are long gone, and will likely never hear my
outrage. (I think I mentioned I'd like to verbally rip a strip off them, and
start down the other side?)

Right now, as a resident of Alberta, I find compassionate support direly
lacking. As I told one fellow at the crisis centre, "If you're a sick kitty up
a tree in this provence, you gonna *die* a sick kitty up a tree." (He was from
Ontario, but I told him I wouldn't hold that against him. ;-)

I've lost count of how many times I've called city hall for assistance in my
twelve-year neglected yard work, and they are about to get another. I know the
person I talk to is not to blame for the lack of services for people in my
situation, but it's not going to prevent me from trying to instill some good
hearted humour into the quagmire.

I just received a flyer in the mailbox, stating that my community has
instigated a volunteer day to help cleanup the neighborhood. Maybe that is an
indirect response to my umpteen requests to date. <?> Now, if I can only get
them to truck out a couple of loads from my address; I'll take the before and
after photographs. <EG>

 AH> noticed, for example, that a certain traffic light allowed
 AH> only seven seconds to cross a six-lane street.  It wasn't 
 AH> enough time... either for Nora or for the numerous others 
 AH> in the area who use mobility aids and/or walk with some 
 AH> difficulty... to cross safely.  When the problem was 
 AH> brought to the attention of the right department, they 
 AH> fixed it.  In a lot of cases people may not see what is 
 AH> amiss because it has no effect on them
 AH> ... but they're not unwilling to help if you can explain it 
 AH> clearly & concisely. Who will rattle cages if *we* don't?  

You the gal! <-|{

And rightly, the traffic department only runs their mathematical analysis on
their streets, and one fast walk signal here or there doesn't likely cross
their desks. The average Joe never notices, unless they have personal
experience with a challenged person. Even if they have experience, chances are
the person hasn't realized the complaints, or the issuing party gets tired of
explaining it so many times...

 AH> Those who are mentally handicapped, or the guy who speaks
 AH> haltingly with "sip-and-puff" apparatus, or the little old 
 AH> ladies who wouldn't say boo to a goose??  Somehow I think 
 AH> it's highly unlikely....  :-)
 
It's nice that we have more handicapped people in a position of power to raise
complaints and issues the normal (Not meant as a compliment.) politician
wouldn't recognize. Then there's people like you three and myself, for the
cities that still can't buy a clue. <-;
 
 AH> Yup.  I hit the nail on the head so squarely at
 AH> times that other folks apparently feel I'm attacking them, 
 AH> but I imagine you can relate....  :-))
 
Well, I try not to put the screws on too tight. Mind you, I'd been pretty
ferocious with one doctor once. (Same long story. :-)
 
 AH> It may be necessary to call in reinforcements at
 AH> times when one is ill or in pain.  Nora often says to me "I 
 AH> tell them, but they won't listen."  Dallas & I are more 
 AH> difficult to ignore.  Even if we all work together, though, 
 AH> we find some people don't get the picture or lack the power 
 AH> to help much... (sigh).
 
...And some people just rub each other in the wrong way. One fellow my father
was sharing room with, once told an RN that she wasn't a nurse, she was an
opportunist. I've never gone that far, but I had been tempted a few times.
That's what made it so funny when I first heard him deal with the ditz. I was
torn between hiding in the locker, or laughing *real* hard in her face.

 
 JB>  ADAC was not equipped to feed me even an A.S.A.
 JB>  for pain control


 AH> Perhaps as a defence against individuals who might say
 AH> anything to  get drugs from them?  I'm reminded of a man whose young

I offered to bring my own if that would ease their paperwork. NADA! Today, they
have something in place to deal with my type. <EG>

 AH> son  stumbled en route to his appointment at the oncology
 AH> clinic.  The boy hit his head on a curb & the father 
 AH> thought he might need stitches... so they went to the 
 AH> emergency ward first.  The father was quite distressed by 
 AH> somebody's overconscientious efforts to make sure he wasn't 
 AH> abusing the kid, as if he didn't have enough problems 
 AH> already....  :-/
 
Sure, but the omission would be the bigger sin, IMO. A cousin of mine was an ER
RN for years, and quickly became the goto girl on the ward! I know for a fact,
that I couldn't do the job she did.
 

 AH>  We could use a secretary & a maid too... [chuckle].
 JB>  ...Oh ya, and a full time 'strong-back'! <LOL>


 AH> Come to think of it, we could use one of them as well.... 
 AH> ;-) 

I'll let you know how the situation works out here, and I'll send them over if
they're any good. <-; You'll just have to promise to return 'em!
