drowning …

cobwebs inside the windpipe
cough-webs when there are too many
Me, their eco-system …

An enemy within,
carried around for half a century
most often far away in the background

the expert physicians only see cases
they are still in Plato’s cave
ignorant about the patient
throwing darts in darkness unexplored

when they don’t recognise,
any of the patterns
in the books,
one is not to be cured
because they only see your perfect health
and barely ever dare to touch their ignorance

Monochrome Madness 2-1 on Leanne Cole’s Photography blog

  1. Oh, I know, they hem and haw about antibiotics like the fate of the world rests in their hands when that may be exactly what you need. I understand the fear and danger about becoming antibiotic resistant but sometimes that is all that will work.

    • team-work would also be something. at least messaging each other. we have an internet. the lungspecialist still today has not filed any report on my 2 visits (not even internally in the regional hub – as I could spy) …
      And you know what: if I tell any doctor that I travel abroad to asia or africa, then I get all those antibiotics prescribed for a private pharmacy box …

  2. This photograph reminds me of a painting I have done on my blog… called moist rock… I wondered if it’s a face drowning…and also can relate it to your picture and theme…

    • I think I need a vet. They just cure the animal, without any considerations about antibiotic resistance and all the paperwork involved. Most governments in europe are making accountants out of medical doctors. Running Elk seems to have (had) similar problems https://shamanicpath.wordpress.com/2015/02/22/who-heals-the-healer/
      Tomorrow I have an appointment with a friend, who happens to be a doctor too … perhaps that different perspective will be enough … or not? I’m optimistic.

      • I hope you get some relief soon; the illness is caused by the doctor having pledged himself to the pharmaceutical companies. Maybe your meeting with the friendly doctor offers a new perspective. Thanks for the link to Running Elk’s post

  3. Like the image, but not the illness. Your new water photos are especially appealing right now. I have been looking at water photos – perhaps inspired by spring thaw? Be well!
