Well shoot, guess I'm spreading misinformation then, let me just exit stage left. I'll let the guy with no legs know that you all have heard that story a million times.

I had a colonoscopy today. The nurses and doctors asked me no less than six times my name, birthdate and the procedures they were doing today. I must have had the good ones by accident.

One time I threw an object in the air and it didn’t come down. I guess gravity is a hoax and science can’t be trusted. (Hint: It was a balloon.)

Doctors do make mistakes and some are better than others. Mistaking bronchitis (wet cough) for COVID (dry cough) is not great. I

was feeling terrible last year (maybe 2) and went to the doctor. Explained my symptoms and they tested me for flu and sent me home. I felt worse the next day and even worse the next. I found a tick bullseye, went to a clinic, showed it to them and walked out with antibiotics.

I don’t know how anyone could be expected to diagnose cancer from “my hip hurts.”

True, but to diagnose the problem simply as you're fat and that's why your hip hurts without ruling out other causes is just as ridiculous. Fat people can have other things wrong with them that have nothing to do with being fat, just like all the diseases that cause symptoms similar to covid haven't gone anywhere so we can't just assume everything is covid without considering other options. Unfortunately that is a situation some people are running into and when it happens it delays proper treatment.

Was the family black?

That’s partly just to be funny and trot out an old meme, but it’s also actully a real thing. People of color are systematically given less attention, credence, and care by the medical system.

No, rural doctor though, actually rural for both the cancer case and the rsv. The bronchitis was in a different part of the country. Rural doctors can be old school and stuck in their ways. Learned that with dentists, I’d much rather someone brand new out of school than some old fart who is half burnt out and makes his diagnosis based on experience and intuition, cause that’s exactly what happened with the cancer case.

Jeff, glad you enjoyed your time getting your poop chute examined.

also, what I was trying to do was steer the conversation towards some things I saw happening, and then I started thinking about how people frequently get second or third opinions when dealing with doctors. Then these cases of misdiagnosis, and clear disregard for multiple negative Covid tests came to mind. I never said they had an agenda or that they made money off Covid diagnosis, but rather was asking if there was some benefit to the doctor for considering a case Covid, or if they were just tossing stuff in that bucket cause it’s the major thing going around and an easy diagnosis.

I was going to just walk away from this thread yet again, but saw some people actually give some thought on what I posted, instead of just shutting it down and calling me stupid. You know, all ideas, science, or whatever start with thought or opinions, and just shutting people down for theirs because they aren’t peer reviewed or whatever is silly. I may not be peer reviewed, but I did take some time to attend quite a bit of schooling and whatnot and am not totally incapable of a thought. I just have a very slated viewpoint from the masses, and am always thinking about what drives a behavior or decision, and money and power tend to severely skew those behaviors so I always wonder if that is at play.

No one is shutting you down because your thoughts aren't peer reviewed, they're shutting you down because your thoughts are implying that a few anecdotes invalidate wider expertise. You've flat out suggested that there's a wider and coordinated intention to misdirect toward Covid, and there's no data to support that.

Yes, your tax dollars are being used to develop these kinds of viruses. You literally paid for Covid 19 from your pocket. Kinda gives you a warm, fuzzy feeling inside (heavy sarcasm).

Please tell me again how Fauci is this really nice guy who only has your best interests and safety in mind.

This guy is a career bureaucrat who will do anything to protect the bureaucracy. He's lied from the beginning and has a career of lying to the public.

Except Rand Paul is still full of ****, but you don't care if it suits your conspiracy narrative.

I agree, Rand Paul is the worst.

If I want advice about the best type of filling for a cavity, I'll seek out Rand Paul. Otherwise I'll steer clear of the dentist for advice on Covid.

As to doctors making mistakes, of course it happens. They are, after all, practicing medicine. A coworker was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer...at the Cleveland Clinic. (World renowned in most areas of care). Actually, they missed the diagnosis for a couple of years and then got it. After looking at his case and the outcomes they suggested he get his affairs in order and get some traveling done as he wouldn't live 18 months.

My coworker got a second opinion at Moffitt in Tampa. Moffitt put him on an aggressive experimental therapy...6 years ago. Had he taken the Cleveland Clinic's advice he would likely be dead. That isn't to say I don't go to the Cleveland Clinic. I think they are very good. But, in the case of serious health issues a second (or third) opinion isn't a bad idea.

I thought Rand Paul was an ophthalmologist?

From Wikipedia:

After completing his residency in ophthalmology, Paul moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky, where he has held a state-issued medical license since 1993.... Paul specializes in cataract and glaucoma surgeries, LASIK procedures, and corneal transplants.

(At first I read that as cornmeal transplants, which seemed pretty much in keeping with his views on vaccines. In any event, no, steer clear of him for filling cavities too.)

The thread started with Shanghai Disneyland and we're officially full circle:

Nearly 34,000 people were locked down at Shanghai Disney Resort, mass tested for COVID-19
