On Keeping a Death Bed Promise

Nearly forty years ago, when he was on his deathbed, my father asked to promise him that I would save my five younger brothers from being utterly destroyed by our malignant narcissistic personality disorder mother. Because he asked me at the same time as he told me that I was the one he gave all […]

It’s Pinworms Making Asad Itchy

When Asad stepped of the trailer last September, he had rubbed most of the hair of off his dock. He still had long tail hairs from the nottom third or so, but the top two-thirds was rubbed to shiny bare skin. Since he did not rub his tail once he got here, I assumed that […]

Sheriff’s Deputy Lattin in Agua Fria Village

To Whom it may concern: I’m a disabled 64 year-old woman, I drove thru the stop sign at the San Isidro Crossing and Agua Fria Street this Sunday afternoon because a big black and white SUVĀ  came barreling up behind me showing no signs of slowing down, never mind stopping. I have been repeatedly harassed […]

Asad’s Skin Needs MSM

I’ve gradually added about half a cup of MSM to Asad’s medicinal mush. His joints all suddenly began clicking when he moved and and when I brushed him it sounded like I was running a brush over a piece of corrugated cardboard. I tried to do a little more ground work with him, but strapping […]

It turned out that he had been carrying around a cement mixer’s worth of Iowa mudstone and getting it out was making him feel miserable. He inevitably progressed to […]

Asad’s Droppings are Full of Iowa Mudstone

Eating a quart of pellets, a pint of Triple Crown’s pelleted feed supplement, a scoop of electrolytes formulated to ‘help encourage a healthy water intake’, a scoop of psyllium, and a scoop of probiotics along with enough water […]

Asad and Hoof Pain

I knew Asad was overdue for a hoof trim before he started down my way. What I did not know was just how long it had been since his last hoof trim. As you can see in the photo below, he had platters for front hooves and his hind hooves were equally overgrown. I was […]

TMG and the Medical Industry

One of the reasons that I post on my health issues is because during the Trump era, getting medical issues recognized was not part of primary care practitioners jobs. Their job was to inflict as many arbitrary profit-making prescriptions and procedures as could possibly be pushed through the system. Insisting that care actually have some […]
