Levaquin – The evil behind the tablet

Published April 19, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

I feel the need to write this blog about my experience with the powerful antibiotic Levaquin. You see, just a mere 3 weeks ago, I took Levaquin for the first time ever. It was prescribed to me by a doctor on the app Doctor on Demand who felt it would be good for a UTI. Little did I know, one pill would change my life forever.

A few hours after taking the pill, I knew something was wrong. I had taken a nap after taking the medicine and when I woke up, it literally felt like there was a big cactus in my throat. My throat was swollen and I was badly dehydrated. I ended up having to drink 7 bottles of water to rehydrate myself enough that I felt somewhat normal. A short while later, I noticed that my muscles were getting very weak and it felt like someone was stabbing me with a hot knife in my arm. Worried, I contacted the doctor on doctor on demand and they gave me Benadryl, imagine that, a medicine you give to kids and adults who have rashes. It did nothing for me, the next day I could barely move. When I tried to stand up, I fell sideways. The muscles in my legs were too weak to hold me up and I was basically skidding across the floor with a cane and a hunched over back position. It became to the point that I could no longer stand and I knew something went horribly wrong. I had someone to research Levaquin for me who found out that there’s actually lawsuits against Levaquin and other drugs similar like Cipro for exactly what I experienced. Again, I spoke with a doctor on demand who told me that I needed to go to the emergency room immediately and that I was having a serious allergic reaction.

Well, it’s been a few weeks and though I can walk better now, I’m in terrible pain. My muscles are extremely weak, everything feels like I just exercised for 5 hours straight and the pain never ends. I get very little sleep despite medicine that I’m on to control the pain, despite heating and ice pads, despite muscle relaxers. I continue to get weaker everyday. I realize now that taking Levaquin without doing my research is literally life changing.

I’m not the only one who suffers from injuries from Levaquin and other medicines like it. It’s not a safe drug and it needs to be taken off of the market completely. Now I’m left disabled and suffering and I can’t play with my 2 year old son anymore, I can’t run, hell I can barely walk. This medicine has destroyed my body, one pill and I’m stuck like this. Please get the word out, I don’t want anyone else to be hurt by this drug.

Target of Atheists

Published April 11, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

I decided to write this blog to talk about my struggles of believing in God. You see, I’ve always been one to express how I feel unfiltered but, I try to do it in a way that’s not offensive or overbearing. I don’t push my beliefs on anyone unless I’m confronted. I often have the worst time on YouTube. I’m watching something religious and I scroll down to make a comment and there it is, the dreaded angry atheist who’s decided to come on the video’s simply to harass the Christian’s. It seems that we’re often attacked for most everything and that despite having proof of false claims through evolution, the arguments continue and what you find is a very stubborn person who will talk themselves into sounding intelligent. I often seem like a paranoid person because, it seems like every where I go to comment, there’s that dreaded angry atheist following me around and making comments on everything I say. I’ve been called ignorant, cold hearted, a bitch, useless, trash and anything else you can imagine. It’s odd that no matter whether I’m calm and collective or angry and bitter, I often get the same verbal abuse. I often grow tired of the struggles of being a Christian. I find though that the ignorance lies in those Atheists who are just looking for a fight. Often times, they have no basis for their anger and the assumption is always made that God is a pixie fairy or some other fairy tale creature and that Christian’s are all bible thumping Jesus freaks who kill others in the name of God and who abuse their children by threatening hell. Those are all ridiculous baseless claims that have no other purpose than to make the Atheist ego bigger.

Not all Atheists have a problem with Christian’s and some are actually very polite and agree to disagree. Others create ridiculous Facebook pages like “The Flying Spaghetti Monster” in which they post despicable pictures of Christ or Christian kids, in compromising positions often accompanied by hateful captions. I see no purpose in that what-so-ever. If you truly don’t believe there is a God, is it necessary to constantly mock, use his pictures that are created and to fight Christian’s?

Scientists are constantly trying to disprove God and they have so far failed. They have come up with some ridiculous calculations and confusing explanations which most Atheists will say “Sounds reasonable, let’s remember this and use it in an argument”. It’s basically having faith in man, having faith in those who are easily making mistakes. So I guess in a way, you could consider it a religion. They have faith in man, we have faith in God. If people knew me, they wouldn’t be so quick to hate on me. I have no problem with other religions. I have friends that are Catholic, Muslim, Atheists etc. We don’t talk about what we believe and it’s up to each person to decide what will their life be like. However, if I’m on a Christian video, I don’t want to deal with Atheists who are angry and who have weaned their way in just to bash others. I’m like “Stay on your own videos and we’ll stay on ours”. The most hate comes from them, much more than people using God to hate others. These are all events that are described in the bible in which Atheists claim is fake garbage. The Bible has provided many insights as to what would occur and it does so with high accuracy in which people of that time couldn’t have possibly known what was to come or to even guess what would happen thousands of years later and therefore, yes I believe that God gave them that information. The big bang certainly didn’t, there were no Scientists back then to make up crazy calculations, monkey’s certainly weren’t guessing. There is a lot of evidence to support God but, those who hate him will argue.

In closing, I just want to say that we should all make an effort to get along and stop crossing the line with each other.

The Racist Debate

Published March 2, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

I have to write this because I’m annoyed. I have nothing against races but, I can tell you this, I’m tired of seeing stories about white on black conflicts. More than ever we are seeing stories about innocent black kids being killed and teenager and adult blacks being killed by either a Hispanic or a white.

I understand that people are upset that their kids are being killed by cops or random people and that’s fine but, when the world goes in an uproar over it, it’s annoying because all you hear about is how it’s only because they were black. It may seem that way, that’s not necessarily the case and I hate to tell you but, there are hundreds of innocent people killed that are not black and a lot of them have been killed by blacks and did not get media attention or uproar’s.

I could post dozens of stories about innocent white kids (and when I say kids, I mean true children) who were senselessly shot by blacks. That’s far from the point, I’m just tired of hearing the sob stories of blacks where they claim they are being “picked on” and chosen by other races intentionally and that they are the only one’s. Yet, every time you turn on the news or open a newspaper, all you see is how blacks have raped, robbed, murdered etc… innocent people.

I think the guilt trip that are put on white people about how blacks have been mistreated is unfair and I am allowed to have an outside point of view that’s not really bias considering I’m not white or black. I’m basically just an observer when it comes to reading comments especially on Facebook for news stories. What I notice the most is how people like myself are always attacked and threatened which basically just proves that violence in the black community is common.

Here’s what I will say, there are a lot of educated black people who don’t feel the need to gang bang, drug sling, fight, act like fools and steal. There are upstanding citizens in every race and there are horrible people in every race but, there are a lot of black people who act like fools, end up in prison and hang out at gas stations or stores trying to make a buck off of people rather than getting a job or going back to school to better their selves. I’m seeing more and more black kids ages 10 and under who are actually at the stores, by their selves, selling candy with jacked up prices and you can tell that they are basically working either for their parents or they are alone and having to fend for their selves. Kids should never be in this position. Many are also sucking the life out of the welfare system and it’s only because they don’t want to work and yes, there are many people who need the system and have actually tried surviving. Others just depend on it because, it’s free money.

Mexican’s too are constantly being bashed and accused of being welfare suckers. Mexican’s work harder than any other race out there and they do jobs that many other races refuse to do. If it weren’t for the Mexican’s, everyone would starve because, not many people are willing to put in the hard work to plant and harvest food. Again, like in every other race there are bad Hispanic’s who have chosen to join gangs and cause destruction.

White’s are constantly being attacked for various reasons. One of the main reason’s is they are being held accountable for what SOME black’s had to go through in the past and I say some because there again, despite the sob stories, not all blacks were slaves and they didn’t all come from Africa. White’s are also attacked as being “lazy, uneducated” and are also often accused of being on the system. White’s are also guilty of attacking other races particularly the Mexican’s because they feel entitled to the United States and they forget that the people who made this land what it is, were actually Mexican’s and Native American’s. Mexican’s owned quite a few states and many of you have no idea about the Mexican American war or the number of states Mexican’s owned. White’s feel so entitled to the land, they forget that they too are immigrants and had to cross an ocean to get here. The constant war with “This is America, Speak English”. That’s ignorance as America is a Continent, many languages are spoken all over the America’s and English was brought over from England, forced upon the Mexican’s and Native American’s who already had discovered the United States. If you want to block out all of the immigrants, that sends the majority of white’s back to Europe so think before you speak.

Asians, they are often known as being intelligent, hateful and rude. They come over to the United States, populate like rabbits, close down all the mom and pop businesses and build Asian empires. They take over entire cities and send all residents who aren’t Asian packing. They are very rude and act like they own every single building they occupy and visit especially in the stores. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve nearly been run over by Asian’s with shopping carts and had many near accident’s because of their reckless driving in parking lots.

I’m positive that many of you will go on a bashing towards me and you’ll be angry, curse and flipout but, at least consider what has been said before jumping to defending your honor. What I have said in this blog doesn’t apply to all people of any race and I think I have been fair in labeling each race individually but not grouping every single person in each race together. There are good and bad in all races.

The Autistic Toddler Pt2

Published February 18, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

I’m writing an update about my son who has Autism because, I recently read something that made me feel really bad. My son will be turning 2 years old next week and every since he was born, I have been receiving newsletters from babycenter.com about his development. You know, it’s a newsletter they send via email every month that tells you “Your child is now X months old” and it goes on to tell you what your baby should be doing by that point, milestone wise. I recently received a newsletter that said “Your toddler is now 23 months old” and inside the first sentence was “Your child should now be speaking at least 50 words”. I can tell you that it was a true wake up call and it made me feel really bad. I love my son more than anything in the world and I try to not define him by being Autistic but, it really hit home because, my son speaks 7 words and the rest is babble that cannot be understood. He’s learned 1 new word in 4 months.

I have been attacked by people stating that I’m a horrible parent and that I’m obviously not spending enough time with my son and I’m not reading to him or trying to teach him new words. Are you kidding me? I spend countless hours with him using flashcards, educational shows and even educational puzzles that show the picture and the word, letter and number associated with it. For some reason, it’s not registering and I’m doing the best I can so, I feel really bad when people call me out and say I’m neglecting him. I haven’t found very many resources that could help him or me. I don’t live in a populated city, we have less than 2,000 people here and there are no resources in this area. I do take him to an autism center an hour away and even they come to the house sometimes and work with him but, he still isn’t improving and they said he could stay stuck like this forever.

Does anyone else have autistic kids and what did you do? I would like to hear your stories if you could please comment, I need resources!

So you want a cat?

My 15 year old cat

My 15 year old cat

Some people are dog lovers and others are cat lovers. No matter what kind of pet you choose, many of them need lots of attention and be prepared for the expenses. I’m not a dog person so, I’ll be focusing on my life with cats.

I’ve had many cats in my lifetime of all different ages, some strays and some rescues. I will tell you one thing, they are all different. I have 2 cats currently, 1 is 15 years old and the other is 1 year old. There are major differences between the 2. My 15 year old cat is blind in both eyes, he doesn’t like to play or be outside. He doesn’t eat much and he drools a lot.

My 1 year is old is a handful. He loves sleeping during the day and going absolutely crazy at night time. He’s constantly demanding food and to go outside. If he doesn’t get to go outside at night time, he runs all over the bedroom knocking things over, playing in the litterbox, sliding random toys across the floor, running into the door, jumping over trashcans and pillows, in and off the bed and well you get the picture. He’s absolutely obnoxious.

A lot of people think that kittens are cute. You won’t feel that way when you’re killing your wallet buying milk and listening to them meow 24/7. Then those kittens turn into rambunctious terror furballs who get into everything and keep you up all night. Don’t count on getting a break until they are senior cats. It will absolutely drive you insane to have to deal with a cat. Cats love getting into trashcans and jumping up on counters. The only way to train a cat to not do that, is to spray them in the face with water, you must be consistent or they won’t learn. Some people might say “That’s abusive”, no it’s not abusive, it’s the only way to keep them from tearing your house apart. You’re not hurting them, you’re training them. To abuse an animal would be anything that would alter their state physically for life or cause their death.

If you think you can handle all of these things, by all means get a cat. Oh and I almost forgot to mention, 1 year old cats love to hide behind anything bigger than them, then when you walk by, prepare to be pounced on. Good luck with your new cats, you’re going to need it.

Review: Sears Credit Card Services

Published February 15, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

I will rate Sears Credit Cards as a 0/10. After being a member since 1995, I inquired about having my interest rates lowered as they are the same super high interest rate as they have been since I was a new member. I explained to them that it’s not fair to be forced to pay super high interest rates after 20 years. I spoke to 2 customer service representatives and 2 managers. They were very snotty with me and told me flat out “We will not change your interest rates, not now nor ever”. So I said “Fine, you’re going out of business soon anyway, I’ll just close down the card as I have no interest in working with someone who’s so rude and unwilling to appreciate a 20 year customer”. They could have cared less and stated “Well, we’re not going out of business and if that’s what you want to do, go ahead”. So, I cancelled. I have a Discover card that I’ve had for about 10 years, they very much appreciate my business and went out of their way to give me all kinds of cool deals including taking away all of my interest and giving me 10% cash back on most everything. I made it a point to tell Sears that they are losing their business to Discover and that, I will be sure to spread the word about their lack of care towards their customers. They didn’t believe me, now they will find out. I hope many of you will reblog this to prove that I’m not playing games with companies who don’t care. I have never missed a payment on my cards and I will not be treated like garbage. So if you’re considering shopping at Sears or getting credit, don’t.

Restaurant Review #2 – In-N-Out Burger

Published February 9, 2015 by Amplio Recorrido

13-things-you-didn-t-know-about-in-n-out-burger

If you’ve never been on the west coast, you won’t know what this is. It’s a very popular, cheap burger place that’s all over California.

The first time I tried In-N-Out, I got a Cheeseburger and Animal Style Fries (it has bacon bits, cheese and thousand island sauce). They also make a regular burger which you can stack all the way to a 5X5, they have an Animal Style burger and a protein burger (no bun, lettuce is the wrapping).

I’m honestly not sure what the craze is about this place. I have been several different times all over Southern California and I can tell you one thing, it’s getting worse as time goes along. The burgers are extremely dry, even with condiments and they are either under cooked (pink in the middle) or overcooked.The fries by their self are absolutely horrible! I can’t even imagine they are made with real potatoes, they honestly taste like imitation fries. You can seriously buy frozen fries in the grocery store that taste better than their fries.

Animal style fries on their own: Horrible! The cheese that’s on them is nuked government sliced cheese. The bacon bits are cheapy, soft imitation bacon bits. Sound appealing yet? The fries also come with grilled onions, if you like slimy, these are for you.

The milkshakes: I hope you’re not lactose intolerant, they use the strongest whole milk they can find, the ice-cream in the shakes have zero sugar. It’s basically like drinking curdled milk.

So, as you can see this place gets a 0/10 stars from me. I would never, ever consider eating there again even if they paid me to do so. The picture will fool you, there’s nothing tasty about their food and that is not a representation of what you actually get.
