Poisoned by "certified organic" pesticide used by the army corps of engineers.
I wish I knew how to add photos, I would show some of the less gory pics.
However my story, I was poisoned by the army corps of engineers.
They in all their glory decided to poison out a lake so they could restock it with game fish for rich touristy types.
They neglected to tell the locals that the Rotenone used to kill off the lake is also lethal and or dangerous to a very small percentage of humans (I am one of the lucky ones)
It caused me to lose most of my liver function, kidney failure, heart issues,some brain functions are impared in that I have problems concentrating and I went from proofing newspaper articles to barely being able to compose a letter, lungs were filling with fluid and full of blistering lesions as well.I have to carry around a lame oxygen tank now so I don't die.
On the skin side, I would get unendurable feeling of burning followed by the skin burning from the inside out, you could actually feel the high heat coming off my skin right before blisters formed, then popped then the skin slid off leaving the underlaying muscles exposed.
I required many skin grafts after they figured out what was causing this.
I have some scars on my face as a result of this as well,but thankfully most of the skin slid off my abdomen and legs and not my face. I am now perminantly unable to do alot of the physical things I used to do as the new skin is not all that strong. I also am very photosensitive and any bright light sends me into mild seizures. I will require a kidney transplant in the future as well.
What bothers me the most is Obama our noncitizen president had created a law in which we can no longer sue the government for being poisoned by them (part of the Patriot Act) Thankfully I have insurance because the bills are close to half a million dollers at this point and I will never fully recover mentally or physically.
Send me a message if you want to see some gory pics. My legs will never again look good in a skirt :( it is jeans only for me for the rest of my life.

I may need to retract this statement
after reading your pit bull rescue story, and re-reading the above story, and paying closer attention to the offensive/deluded reference to Obama, and the Patriot Act. And, even a Luddite like me knows how to post pictures, even those sourced via Google.

As I Read That
I was feeling a great deal of sympathy for you. Then you dropped in the phrase Obama our noncitizen president and it was obvious that you're a right-wing, racist, fuck-knuckle who can't bear the fact you have a black President.

Given your prejudices, I can't take anything you say seriously


Edit: And the Patriot Act was passed in 2001 by George Bush.

I've just bothered to read your story rather than posting a standard up-the-bum response.
It's bollocks. Complete bollocks. Start to finish. Delusional bollocks. The only sickness you have is in your head. Get it treated. Or ... you know ... die in pain. It's much the same to me.

Large quantities of paracetamol inserted in the rectum would probably do it.

To be fair to zhinka, being nuts doesn't make someone a bad person.

It's sane people who behave like cunts who need to be stabbed in the eyes. And the Welsh.

"I wish I knew how to add photos" - "I have no photos to add because I've made all of this up."
Fixed that for you.

This may give you some pointers on
adding photos - by the sounds of it I don't think any of us are *that* voyeuristic (except Rory & BD it would seem maybe).

Also having had a look at your profile, are you sure it was "teh govmint" to blame?

"Rotenone has historically been used by indigenous peoples to catch fish." - from wiki (yeah I know it's wiki but even so...)

There's a part of me that sort of wants her to add photos just to make it easier to prove that it's all deluded fantasy bollocks.

Having carried out some research into rotenone
I can only assume you are a blithering right-wing idiot, who is quite possibly delusional to boot. Have you been huffing on tetraethyl lead? Also, wholescale lake poisonings like that which you make claims about have not been carried out in decades. Finally, as for the birther conspiracy bullshit, seriously, you're aligning yourself with the idiotic and somewhat idiotic Donald Trump?

I only have one suggestion for you. Seriously. Get some mental help before you go postal or something.

Besides, lakes have traditionally been cleared with explosives rather than poison.

Also, if you keep insisting on referring to Obama as a non citizen, when you yourself are a Canadian immigrant, then you are a bellend.
You understand that he was born in Hawaii, which is a US state, right? If he wasn't born in the US he wouldn't have been allowed to run for president in the first place. Please, bring on the tin foil hatted response to this argument.

i think the patriot act became law in 2001 in repsonse to 9/11 under george w bush.
not sure how it would stop you from suing the government though. seems like you've just got an anti-obama agenda.

Assuming this is true...you probably had Steven-johnson syndrome as a result of an autoimmune response to something innocuous like ibuprofen rather than the Gubmint.

Be an antipodean delight;

Dignity and but, don't.
Also drongo doesn't rhyme with anything. But I do enjoy it when you call me a drongo nonetheless.

you do realise that there are different forms of rhythm and rhyme
And that if you'd read the poem correctly then the rhymes fall in the right place?

Perhaps you should put your English degree to better use?

To be with AB for a second on this
Nurses know a fuckton about medicine. More than some doctors in fact, given that on the NHS they're the ones that actually give what the doctor has prescribed, and it's up to them to make sure the dosages and so forth are correct.

A friend of mine is a nurse and she's caught so many misplaced decimal points on a dosage like you would not believe.
