My First Ever Hospital AdmittanceSaturday, July 7, 2012
These phone photos are from my stay last weekend in the hospital. I just so happened to be reading (revisiting) Anthony Colpo’s “The Great Cholesterol Con” when I landed in the emergency, then got admitted. This book got some looks from my Docs and Nurses. Ya think? That said, I’ll be writing about my very own experience with the Cholesterol Con, and how I won when it came down to me vs the hospital standard protocol.
For me, every disaster, every bad situation, every problem, and every downside has a positive upside. Here, I was exposed firsthand to all that I have long researched, written about, and consequently criticized in regards to the medical establishment, especially the lipid hypothesis-cholesterol con. The positive in this situation was the knowledge I gained, the battle I fought, and the experiential education added to my life resume.
I write about these things because what excites me more than anything – more than money or “stuff” – is my life experience, my memories, and my being able to encounter something new, whether it is a favorable situation or an adverse event. If I learn from adversity, I have taken a giant step forward, and I have furthered my education.
I am wired to try and understand these experiences at a detailed level – I process all notable events, the good and the bad, and I analyze the hell out of them. In the end, my life has always been richer for having experienced adverse events. An article is coming up about my experience with the good, the bad, and the bullshit.
