Decent Pie's Thought-Blog

Born too late pre-punk rockers. Trouble with authority, and a yearning for Rigorous Intuition.

Grumpy old git suffering with an acute case of 'The ever Popular Tortured Artist Effect' Who has no particular wish to sell you his music... no, that's ok, go off and buy another Britney album, and DON'T check out any of the fantastic, ecclectic, cornucopia that is: Decent Pie Just DON'T bother... you wouldn't like it. Too much would never be enough, just LEAVE it and go back to Robbie Williams ffs! Or it'll all end in a crying song. [as me ol' dad used to say]

Oh Shit, I'm Dead in the Water! ...or, 'Whatever Happened To Dick Decent?'

Hi rockers,

You may have wondered WTF has happened to the blog and me posting.
Well... I'm not going to go into detail here, but in short I have been completely and totally F*CKED out of all existence by Ciprofloxacin and Ofloxacin.
If you want to know what it means to be 'Floxed' you can go...

My own Floxing started on Nov.13/09 and didn't finish until Jan.12/10.
I am too ill and in shock to post any more right now, but if you take anything away from this post, let it be an insistence on NOT TAKING ANY FLUOROQUINOLONE ANTIBIOTICS.... EVER... for ANY REASON. Even if your GP sez it's OK... DON'T TAKE THEM.
There are ALWAYS other alternative antibiotics, NONE of which have HORRIFIC side effects that can last more than a DECADE plus.
You can look at which ones to avoid...

The 'ADR', or 'chemo-toxicity' [or POISONING as we normal folks would call it] has been moderate to severe in my case, and I have a full range of associated problems. The closest thing to describing it would be a nerve gas type deal, i.e. you get full body/organ wide effects from this stuff, which is in fact a chemotherapeutic TOXIN operating at the DNA/molecular and cellular level.
There is no known cure... or even treatment.
The effects can worsen and progress over time.
It is not uncommon for symptoms to last TEN YEARS PLUS.
There are no support groups or even a website for the U.K.
The NHS is barely aware of the 'Flox' problem despite Cipro being a 'first line antibiotic' in the UK, frequently given to YOUNG CHILDREN.
[watch your own kids!]
The local hospital [of whom I was a guest on Xmas day ffs] has had three attempts at diagnosing me... they failed.
I think the tendonitis is moving into my hands.

Even my GP [who is actually a good guy] is having real problems grasping what has happened to me. BAYER and the money are trying very hard [and succeeding] at keeping the medical profession itself as in the dark as Joe Public, whilst distributors like J&J are busily greasing palms to push sales of these poisons before they have to withdraw them from use. [As they have had to with half of them already]

If you really have the balls, and want to see what this shit does to people, you can look HERE but only those with a stout heart should go, and even then I don't recommend it.

Stay healthy and happy and please count your blessings.


bye until further notice
the ex freak
