Red wine is a source of quercetin (as well as some heart healthy antioxidants). Could be that your body is craving it for those benefits.

I can attest to castor oil being a great anti-bacterial salve. I've also gotten into home and natural remedies since allopathic doctors have a tendency to 1) miss the problem or 2) find the problem and then attempt to use jackhammers when what the patient needs is a piano tuner, lol.

I'm pretty certain that its a bacterial infection because I had a reccurring infection years ago that landed me in the doctors office a few times*. The symptoms I've got now resemble how I felt with that infection, just in a different location. I'm not ruling out parasites since I spend a lot of time gardening and working with animals.

*After being brushed off by a few doctors about it, I was finally lucky enough to get a foreign doctor who recognized what I was dealing with and gave me holistic advice on how to prevent the infection from happening again. I'm usually pretty on top of it, but sometimes life happens and my health gets away from me.

Thank you so much. I have been praying, it just feels like there is something I'm missing right now.

I had chronic appendicitis for years and so many wrong guesses from doctors about it, because it would go away and come back with no obvious correlation to anything else.

That's what makes me so anxious about having to see a doctor, and why I've asked for the prayers that hopefully I'll get a good egg when I do see one. I've had the same experiences before with doctors (have a problem, just get a bunch of guesswork, expensive bills to follow even with health insurance, nothing really fixed or treated). I've done better at managing my illnesses naturally on my own but this one recently has me stumped.

Lol, I know, I know. I really need the thoughts and prayers, the rest just came out because it just did.

Thank you so much for understanding and for the advice and prayers. I really appreciate it.

I've been to the ER before, and my experience there is why I try to avoid hospital visits and doctors unless absolutely needed. I'll keep the Power of Attorney in mind, though. Thank you for both the words of faith and the advice.

Thank you, and I agree. I am not trying to downplay it, but I'm also worried that my anxiety right now is causing me to jump to scary diagnoses instead of using common sense.

I am self employed, I'm in this annoying gray area where I don't usually qualify for medicaid or insurance, but I've been looking at a couple of Christian health sharing services to join when I'm better on my feet (hopefully ASAP). It's scary. That's why I feel like I need the prayers right now.

Thank you. I've upped my vitamin D dosage and I've got both pineapple and cranberry juices, so I'm hoping that will finally take.

Well, he is right, just not in the way he thinks.

P.S. Harry? You might want to keep an eye on people in your life who might have Epstein/Maxwell connections. That includes your wife, if the rumors are true.

I would if I could get it quickly, but unfortunately, I don't live somewhere where I can accomplish that. :/

You took the comment right out of my mouth.

The crazy thing about "Cuties" is that the director (herself an African immigrant to France like the main character) made the movie because she saw a young dance troupe dancing provocatively and was shocked by it. Problem is,1. She isn't that good of a director and 2. She seems to have wildly misunderstood how the elites in the film industry would receive it vs the audiences watching it. She seems to come off a bit tone deaf about it. sigh

I'd heard it years ago and I always wondered if he was talking about hookup culture and the rise of STDs. I'd apply it to the vaxx too, though.

Dang. I guess the only downside to the Beast Mode SC decisions lately is that we might have missed our chance to chill with Clarence Thomas out in the wild. I have a feeling it's staycations for the Thomas family until things settle down.

I know a couple of those hippie types of which you speak. They are outdoorsy, but they're also completely dependent on a properly running supply chain to keep their local Whole Foods stocked with their special tofu pemmican. I don't know if they'd be able to pull it off for long once SHTF, but at least we'll all smell them coming and be able to escape before they get too close.

Glad I could help, and sorry to be a downer, but good luck with where ever you pick!

Oooooh I don't know about that... they do say the further south you go in Florida, the further north you get for a reason. :D :D :D

panhandle is/was on our shortlist

The Panhandle is absolutely beautiful, and I love my hometown deeply, so I totally get the appeal. That said, this area is expanding too quickly for the infrastructure to catch up and the influx of new people means that residents are being priced out of own real estate market (we're experiencing that real estate bubble in a bad way here). I would love to welcome you here as a fellow awake conservative if you decide to join us, but I would caution anyone looking into this area to maybe wait a year or two to see how things pan out in terms of politics and the economy.

Here is Seth Keshel explaining his mule map. Hope the link works, and when you get there, look at the second map posted. Number 51 is the western most tri-county area in the Florida panhandle.
