Since I’ve run out of doctors that are of any support to me, it seems time to stop being chronically ill, stop my medications and improve my diet. Starting with the heart medications first, quit them two days ago. Will stay on the diabetes med. Stay on aspirin to reduce cancer growth in my gut and continue the inhalers for COPD so I can function.

Besides the aspirin, there’s no cancer meds and the skin cancer is just there. My contact with whichever oncologist it is that is “watching” me (unclear who it is) seems to have stopped over a month ago when she couldn’t get in touch the guy who does the colonoscopies.

The cardiologist is not to be contacted.

My own doctor is a nice person but I feel very uncomfortable in the local clinic and can’t see her at the hospital because I won’t EVER go back there. So, in practical terms, my prescriptions are cut-off anyway.

The only person available is the lung specialist.

At some point, you have to protect yourself from indifferent care.
