Right Wing Activist Liz Crokin: I Know Jesus Christ Is Real Because Demons Gave My Dog Bloody Diarrhea

“These people I’m exposing believe in Satan and they’ve garnered power from that and they’ve used that to hurt me. They’ve cast spells on me. Both of our dogs got sick and had diarrhea with blood in it within 24 hours of each other. Our dogs didn’t even hang out together! This was right after we were together and did something powerful together.

“These things make me realize that not only is the devil real, but God is real and Jesus Christ is real. These people that are worshiping the devil, that I’m exposing, are just confirming for me that Jesus Christ is my savior.” – Pizzagate loony tune Liz Crokin, shortly after declaring that a power outage at the beginning of her clip was caused by demons.

RELATED: Crokin has previously claimed that all of Trump’s “loudest critics” are involved in pedophilia and that one-third of all elected officials are “Satanic cannibals” who “drink the blood of children.” Also according to a current far-right conspiracy theory promoted by Crokin, Trump is regularly posting secret messages on 4chan giving hints about the imminent arrests of thousands of Hollywood and deep state pedophiles. Crokin made national headlines early this month was she accused model Chrissy Teigen and her husband John Legend of being involved in pedophilia.

This lady needs go to see a psychiatrist if she seeing demons in all kinds of animals or people. What a lunatic.

          • lileasy

            She needs to see a veterinarian. Sounds like it could be whip worms. Those buggers are straight from hell and can be very hard to eliminate. I can see where she thought Satan might be involved.

    I think the bleach has affected her brain. Her dogs probably had the runs from something she gave them without concerning herself if was something dogs should even be eating. But demons… sure.

    • netxtown

      a dog suffering with bloody diarrhea could be infected with parvo…
      which would say the dumb bitch did not get her animal basic annual vaccinations. now i hate her more…..

    • LeeCMH

      It is amazing how these hateful Christians throw around God and science.

      Perhaps she should study a little about epidemiology and perhaps food handling and drug administration to her animals before blaming everything on supernatural causation.

      • Steven Jaeger

        Just remember everything she was ever taught was from a book written 3000 Years Ago by sheepherders who thought the Earth was the center of the universe and the sun was in a chariot going across the sky. so she couldn’t understand anything like modern science

    • GanymedeRenard

      Thoughts and prayers?

  • Outlaw Woman

    Sorry all, but I LOVE nutcase shit like this … it makes me feel I can freak out all the Liz Crokins in the world by just say “boo” and making a triangle shape with my hands.

    • Gianni

      I can’t explain it either, but I do enjoy reading the lunacy flowing from these nutjobs. It seems to justify my disgust with them and my blowing off the steam. Gives me a reason to rant. 🙂

    • Bryan

      As a teen I used to imagine taking a twig from the ground or small branch, entering this super holy roller hellfire preacher’s congregation, marching confidently up to the pulpit, aiming the stick and waving it around chanting faux Latin.

      Actually it involved something more like already being on stage and incredulously ask if they actually believed that waving a stick at someone and saying words would cause harm. If they answered in the affirmative I’d cast Aveda Kedevra to stunned silence. Since unless I somehow had PROFOUNDLY bad timing and say it at the concise moment he has a heart attack or seizure, nothing’s gonna happen.

      • Helen Damnation™

        Aveda Kedevra? My favorite shampoo, and don’t forget the conditioner… the best!

        • Bryan

          Yeah I know I think I botched the spelling, I’ve disgraced myself as a Daniel Radcliffe lookalike.

  • shellback

    People who don’t believe in the jeezis voo-doo hogwash, are never troubled by demons, devils, black magic, and other mental-illness-related goblins. Just a personal observation.

    • Reality.Bites

      Indeed. I’ve had occasional sleep paralysis in the past, where you can’t move and you imagine scary things that aren’t there.

      In some societies people imagine demons, angels, etc.

      I’d imagine people talking in the next room who’d come to rob me. I’m no more or less susceptible to mental illness than anyone else, but it’s comforting to know that the things I imagine will come from my tepid imagination.

      • shellback

        The key word is “imagine.”

  • Boreal

    Maybe if you didn’t feed your dog cheap, shitty food, he wouldn’t get sick, bitch.

    • GanymedeRenard

      My first thought, too.

    • clay

      I bet it was table scraps, too.

      • David Walker

        I was going to mention peanut butter, although, if her dogs don’t hang together, how could it be within 24 hours of each other? Oh.

      • Snarkaholic

        And they were five days old, and, when she found them rotting in the back of the fridge, she was too much of a stupid, stingy asshole to throw them away.
        As I was taught in culinary school: When in doubt, throw it out!
        Or
        As I was taught here on JMG: When in doubt, whip it out!

    • jerry

      Yeah, maybe it wasn’t a good idea to feed him chicken bones.

    • Dramphooey

      I don’t know about anybody else but I’m really bothered to learn her dogs aren’t getting along.

    Wow. And I had already planned on bestowing the “Batshit Crazy Religious Nutjob of the Week” award to Cindy Jacobs. I’ll have to rethink this one.

    • Gianni

      Maybe split the award or have a 1st Runner Up sash.

      • netxtown

        Sashes?? There’s gonna be sashes??….

        • Gianni

          Well, that would lend a little dignity to the insult. 🙂

      • teeveedub

        Miss Congeniality, maybe?

  • Gianni

    And this loon is a somebody of any noteworthiness? Apparently, Satan has real power and being a diehard believer in the power of Jesus isn’t worth squat when it comes to protecting you. If anything, she is definitely ‘demon obsessed’.

  • BourbonGal

    believing in imaginary friends as an adult is a disease but religion is a-ok……sure

  • Moebym of the Returners

    Sure, and I’m a monkey’s gallbladder.

  • John Boily

    You gotta hand it to her, can’t really argue with that kind of logic.

    • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

      Can’t? Don’t want to.

  • GanymedeRenard

    Has it even occurred to you, Miss, that such diarrhea might be food-induced, even if your dogs don’t hang out together? Have you ever used reason in your life?

    • clay

      That would probably be a violation of her gender ideals.

  • This feels to me like the least insane thing I’ve been forced to witness today.

  • Lazycrockett

    I would think demons would have more interesting things to do.

  • LeeCMH

    Is she trying to take the Florida Jeeeeeesus stick waver’s place?

    Remember, she demonstrated how use a Jeeeeeeeeeeesus stick with a scarf to command hurricane Maria away from Florida.

  • Canadian Observer

    She was dumb enough to mention someone by name rather than simply using a broad brush to paint a whole group of people?… Libel Suit! (that and starting a rumour that the dogs’ bloody diarrhea was a result of Holy Spirits being drunk and bestiality ensuing)

  • Lazycrockett

    Man this Arpaio interview on Ari is just bizarre.

    • Cuberly Deux

      He’s ripping the sheriff a new one.

      It’s like the sheriff is finding out for the first time what the laws are. He appears surprised even…sheesh what a tool.

      • Lazycrockett

        He didn’t even understand what a pardon entails.

        • Cuberly Deux

          He seemed so confused during the whole interview. The details sorta freaking him out.

          As much as Ari can irritate me I gotta give him props for cornering that disgusting redneck bastard. He did an excellent job.

        I hope he does. It’s not a State event, it’s private. They are under no obligation to invite the Orange Shitgibbon. I can just see him crashing the wedding and copping a feel of Meghan Markle, playing his grab and pull “handshake” on Prince Harry, and of course patting the Queen on the butt and kissing her ear.

    • Nowhereman

      Fears? I KNOW that he wouldn’t be welcome.

    I think these girls need to go to therapy get meds for bipolar schizophrenia paranoia. And did she maybe the day her and the dogs was together they may have ate or drank something or had a change in food to cause the shits. Did they take them to a vet or just let them suffer with this condition.

      In Islam, Lucifer aka Iblis, is cast from Heaven because he loved Allah so much and had previously made a vow to only prostrate himself before Allah. When Allah creates man, he tells the angels to prostrate themselves before man and Iblis refuses and is caste out for it (or at least that is one version).

      That is what loyalty gets you, kids. Reminds me of how a certain shitstain in the WH treats his supporters when they run afoul of said shitstain.

    As an American, I am ashamed of the President. His comments are disappointing, unbelievable, but not surprising.

    We always knew that President Trump doesn’t like people from certain countries or people or certain colors. We can now we say with 100% confidence that the President is a racist who does not share the values enshrined in our Constitution or Declaration of Independence.

    He has embraced racists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis and makes excuses for them. He launched his campaign saying Mexicans are rapists and murderers. He has refused to address the crisis facing the American citizens of Puerto Rico.

    He has tried several times to bar people of certain religions or nationalities from legal entry to the U.S. He attacks professional sports stars to entertain his base and has boasted about his habit of groping women inappropriately. Now he has spent most of the last six months undocumenting immigrants who have work permits and deep roots in the U.S. by killing DACA and TPS.

    This is the real Donald Trump and my biggest fear is that his voters will applaud him.

    • I used to live in the Santa Cruz mountains. In the late ’90s, we had an especially bad year when the entire town of Boulder Creek was cut off for days. No way in or out, mud-slides blocking every road.

      Then there was the year this happened down low on our property:

    “Exclusive: Issa mulls running in neighboring district”

    “GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, who said Wednesday he is not seeking reelection in California’s 49th District, has been discussing with colleagues the possibility of running in a neighboring San Diego district if embattled Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Calif.) resigns, multiple sources told The Hill.”

    http://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/368513-exclusive-issa-mulls-running-in-neighboring-district

          Ugh. I have had tinnitus for decades, caused by a particularly nasty ear infection that I couldn’t get my ENT to treat with anything stronger than amoxicillin. It lasted half of forever, and left me with constant noise in my left ear. Glad your doctor called out the big guns (to be fair to my ENT, most of the current cures didn’t exist when all this happened).

          I thought it was probably a very early flower.

      “They never took a thing from our federal government” Like its a bad thing ? the most vulnerable populations rely on the federal government for help otherwise they would suffer and die because most cannot work for a multitude of factors and populations.

      Haiti ? the intentional suffering of Puerto Ricans ? etc. Where the hell has this bitch been. Oh now i remember, she’s a willfully retarded representative who will put party before country even what she knows is wrong and will stand by him in the end.

    So, let me break this down. There are four fundamental forces of nature; Gravity , Electromagnetism, the Strong force and the Weak force. These four natural forces behave very predictably. Scientists have studied these forces and we have iPhones because of it.
    In order to cause something to happen outside of these four forces like, say, cause a dog to get diarrhea or make the power go out on a whim, we need a fifth power that can willynilly override the four natural forces. We’ll call this the supernatural force. Let us assume that this force exists for a moment.
    There must be a source for this supernatural force. What is it and what is its source? Its source has to be a supernatural being or beings. Clearly, if the source is multiple beings then none can be the supreme being because they all have access to this supernatural force.
    If you believe in a supreme being then this supernatural force must emanate from it and it alone. If demons are using supernatural power then you also believe that your supreme being is doling out supernatural force to demons.
    What kind of horrible and screwed up god do you have to believe in to think that He would allow demons to use His power to work against His will?

    • Or, this woman is simply batshit crazy. I’m gonna go with that.

    • Silver Badger

      May the force be with you. (Someone had to say it.)

      I feel for anyone who has lost everything and come here because of the opportunities they can’t get at home. I feel for the people running away from violence or war hoping they can get a second chance to make life better for their family. For those who want to save their children from a life of poverty and little education. The F**king Moron has no experience of doing without to draw from or empathy. He has always had the best and is so self centered others are just pawns who are used and tossed aside. This is not what being an American is about. Cooper is.

      • Todd20036

        Too bad Cooper didn’t defend Clinton more (and hit harder on Trump) back in 2016 when it really could have helped.

    While this POS homocon writes a tall of woe about another POS homocon whining about how tough it is to be an LGBT Republican, one of my friends who works with LGBT youth just got done helping a 17 year old girl who just got kicked out of her home by “parents” find a place to stay in her district so she can finish out her senior year.

      • Correction five lies.
        1. Testimony wasn’t secret in any way and was slated for release in the form it was released.
        2. Feinstein did not need authorization. Co-chairs (Majority and ranking) simply typically do stuff in consultation with each other
        3. Other committee members were not offended nor did any say she disrespected them
        4. No fucking way is it illegal
        5. Feinstein said she did the release because she felt the American people had a right to the information, and just apologized for being hoarse due to a cold.

        • BobSF_94117

          Co-chairs USED TO simply typically do stuff in consultation.

          USED TO

    • Sam_Handwich

      it’s not illegal. seems the only consequence would be if Grassley or McConnell made an issue of it, which would be dumb

      • Even if they made an issue about it, the transcript was in no way secret or confidential. It was supposed to be released. The majority and ranking minority members simply usually extend the courtesy of not making a serious move without the informed consent of the other.

        Honestly, I think Feinstein did what she did because Grassley and Graham didn’t consult her when they made that bogus DoJ criminal referral against Steele. Which itself was another breach of usual Senate committee courtesies.

        I think it’s insanely weird that he refers to her that way publicly, but in all honesty I think every parent in our family refers to each other with some version of mom or dad at least some of the time outside of talking to their kids. I know my great grandfather called my great grandmother “mom” until they died in their 90’s.

        Even my divorced birth parents referred to each other as Mama and Daddy when we were talking until my mother died in 2016. Mother is a pretty stilted version of that, but even they are entitled to their kinks, I suppose. Although it would be beyond entertaining if Mikey and Mother were into age play.

        Btw, it isn’t terribly unusual in the south for adults to call their father Daddy. I thought it was weird everyone made such a big deal about Ivanka using it. I didn’t realize it was strange in other places.

      Lucky you weren’t there last week, it was cold in the Northern parts.

      • safari

        I think I’d be fine with that.

      • TampaDink

        It’s about to get cold again here in Tally. But for the last few days, it has been nice sleeping with the windows open…and having the fresh air in the house all day & night.

    • Gretchen

      I’m glad you made it safely. Stay cool.

    • Sam_Handwich

      don’t go to The Villages, you’ll get the herpes

      • safari

        My mother and her admin coworkers were invited to The Villages to stay with their old boss and his wife for a long weekend. As far as I can tell they just got really drunk.

        • Sam_Handwich

          it’s all fun and games until prescription ointments make an entrance. just sayin

          • safari

            My mother puked in a liquor store parking lot off the side of a golf cart.

          • Sam_Handwich

            there should be a trophy for that

          • TampaDink

            I suspect that is one of those things where everyone there gets a trophy.

          • William

            I’ve never seen my mother do that. Not saying it never happened.

          • safari

            I’ve never seen my mother drunk. I just heard the story.

          • fuzzybits

            When I was a teenager my mother had a few beers and we were on the front porch. A woman walked down the sidewalk and my mom yells at her,”I’d like to have that swing on my front porch!” I always wondered about her.

          • William

            I’ve only seen it happen a few times. She’s polite and usually waits until I’ve gone home.

        • TampaDink

          I’m a big fan of drinking but I’d have to double down if I were forced to visit The Villages.

        • According to people down here, the seniors have way too much sex in the Villages. It is a notorious Sodom and Gomorrah for the rest of Florida. I am serious. Sex crazed people past 65 years old populate the Ocala region. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2657325/Ten-women-man-black-market-Viagra-thriving-swingers-scene-Welcome-The-Villages-Florida-elderly-residents-Sex-Square-cocktail-honor-woman-68-arrested-public-sex-toyboy.html

          • The Daily Mail is a tabloid newspaper, I would take anything they print with an enormous grain of salt…the male/female ratio is actually 47%/53%. most of the people who live there have insurance up the wazoo so no need for black market drugs. If you want to observe the “swingers” who are really just lonely widows and widowers go to Katie Belle’s in Spanish Springs square.
            For some reason there is a love to hate The Villages thing going on, no idea why. It’s a great place for older people to live and be active for the last part of their lives. My only complaint is that it is too homogeneous for my taste. For the record, my mom and oldest brother both live in The Villages and my sister lived there too. I am Villages adjacent in Lake County just outside Leesburg city limits.

        I really can only sleep with a fan blowing on my face. And a cpap. And sleep headphones. And a laptop with wifi. And an audiobook, selection of podcasts, or a police scanner feed. And a pillow between my legs. And some pills. The bluetooth transceiver is optional.

        • fuzzybits

          Do you have one suitcase marked “sleep?”

          • safari

            It’s more like a laptop bag and a large purse.

        • fuzzybits

          I do use a sound machine.

          • TampaDink

            That’s what I call my bedroom television.

          • fuzzybits

            I know a couple people who have to have the tv in the bedroom on all night. That would keep me awake. I like it pitch black.

          • safari

            I agree.

          • TampaDink

            I like the darkness but sometimes, I need dull voices to help me nod off. I.D. is my go to channel for those nights.

          • safari

            True crime and disaster podcasts are a warm blanket to me.

          • TampaDink

            You could be my twin….but the much better looking one.

          • safari

            We’d be triplets. I already have one duplicate.

          • TampaDink

            I did not know that. My mom has often said, “I love all of my children but I would not want two of any one of you.” (I know that twins are two different people, btw, just sharing a funny anecdote.)

        • I have a cocoon of pillows that end up being arranged just so, including one between my knees. As I’ve gotten older, sometimes I also need a foam ramp (GERD, upon occasion, but also to aid in sinus drainage). Music is a must; we have Alexa playing my ‘Sleep’ series playlists.

          Also, my spousal unit either spoons me, or I her, or we sleep back to back.

          • safari

            My ex and I would hold hands as we slept… under the body pillow that acted as a firewall to keep my enormous furnace of a body from overheating him.

          • TampaDink

            We’ve found that there needs to be at least a wall in between us for sleeping…so that my restless legs don’t give him bruises & my toenails to cause bleeding.

          • safari

            With my ex, my ice cold feet were a danger. And occasionally sleep paralysis would fail, and I’d punch him or the headboard.

          • TampaDink

            I’ve been known to punch in my sleep….and not in the good way.

          • My wife refers to me as her BTU: Becca Thermal Unit.

            We seem to balance out. She’s a pretty good heat sink for me most nights, especially in the back-to-back position.

          • Gretchen

            Our last bed developed a substantial hump in the middle because we cling to our own sides of the bed. There is no touching after lights out…too damn hot.

          • Oh lord, this is like a support group here for people with the same issues. GERDS and sinus drainage and foam elevated pillows. Me too! LOL. One thing that people should be aware of is dust mite allergies that can be causing your sinus issues, make sure to vacuum up your foam — getting a Honeywell Air Machine (a good one) did wonders for this. The number of people who develop dust mite allergies (you actually grow allergic to their excrement – they live off your excess skin cells that forms dust) and do not realize is really major).

        • Gretchen

          I have the CPAP, fan, headphones, tablet rather than laptop, sleep hypnosis download, a fancy schmancy pillow, eye mask, and 3 dogs. Sometimes I escape to the sofa because the dogs steal my spot. The morphine keeps me awake for several hours after I take it, so on a good night I fall asleep by 3.

          • safari

            I really wish they’d just perfect a pill that turns us off.

          • Gretchen

            Me too. I have a paradoxical reaction to so many medications. Almost anything that should make me sleepy gives me insomnia. I can take pain meds in the evening and be wide awake until nearly morning. About the only thing that works at all is Benadryl, and that takes as many a 6-8 to even make a dent. I know the sleep deprivation is getting bad because I have started in the last six months falling asleep randomly in totally inappropriate places. I have pretty much stopped driving because I started dozing off a couple times. It scares me. I fell asleep a few weeks ago with a mouth full of bread. I woke up nearly two hours later and nearly choked on it. (Yes, I was eating on the sofa.)

        • As helpful as my CPAP is, I still cannot get used to the damn thing. I try and try but am lucky to get four hours of sleep a night with it.

          • safari

            It is required. I went for three weeks without one waiting for a replacement and was unable to function.

    • safari

      I’m already starting to use the accent. It’ll take me weeks to rid myself of it.

      • Silver Badger

        Glad you made it safe and sound.

        • safari

          Thank you. I like the drive. Except southern Georgia.

          • TampaDink

            I guess that you are not a fan of banjo music. LOL (My man’s family live in south GA…only about 30 miles north of here.)

          • easygoingmister

            My guy’s family lives there too. Maybe that makes us cousins. HA!

          • TampaDink

            I’d be honored.

          • easygoingmister

            Likewise.

          • TampaDink

            Where do you in-laws live? Mine are in Thomasville.

          • easygoingmister

            Moultrie. I like Thomasville better. Only just drove through on my way to and from visiting friends in Tally though. Me and the in-laws don’t, um, socialize together.

          • TampaDink

            Moultrie is not nearly as quaint as Thomsville. I know that I am very fortunate to have such a good relationship with my in-laws. Who knew a Methodist minister would be the first in our families to accept our relationship? Now, after 30+ yrs., I cannot fathom being estranged from them.

          • easygoingmister

            Agreed (on Thomasville vs. Moultrie). We even looked at buying a big old house in Thomasville at one point as it was going for dirt cheap. Unfortunately, we learned at the inspection why – it was basically rotten from the inside out. As for the in-laws, you are fortunate. I’m glad for you.

          • Does that mean that as cousins– since the two of you are from the South — sex with each other is mandatory? Note — One side of the family had first cousin grandparents (which I find creepy) — so I should be the one that talks!

          • TampaDink

            My calendar is open. LOL

          • easygoingmister

            Only mandatory if the family fortune is threatened.

          • Well Welcome to Florida! LOL I guess you did not take my suggestion and visit the Allman Brothers Museum in Macon Georgia. I had to stop there because the person I went with was a huge fan of them — some old 60’s rock band I had never heard of.
            Let me suggest the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Pete. My bf Benja is from Barcelona and loves Dali.

      • I’m a dialect chameleon. I can’t stop myself from adopting the accent and cadence of wherever I am. And yes, it can take weeks to shed.

        You should’ve heard me in India, wasn’t a full-on Indian accent, but the changes to my speech patterns and intonation were noticeable. I was even doing the head waggle (indicates genial acknowledgment but doesn’t commit one to agreement one way or another).

        • TampaDink

          My dad was the same way…..I remember when he sponsored a French liason officer, whenever he would come for dinner by the end of the night, my old man sounded like he was from France. Same with German company.

    He’s right you know.
    I look back at many of the homophobic bigots Joe has featured over the years who think we deserve no rights at all.
    Many of them didn’t use homophobic slurs yet at the end of the day, made it clear they viewed us with contempt and thought we deserved no rights.
    If Trump had used a dog whistle to describe these countries, it would be just as offensive and racist.
    Focus on the racism, not the swearing.

    • As I’m fond of saying and have been for what? Two years now? Anyway: Donald doesn’t dog-whistle. He’s using an entire bank of air-horns to broadcast his racism, bigotry, and misogyny. And it’s been this way his entire life.

    Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars.

          I often talk me the Eurostar and connect to the German or Dutch trains. It’s better than flying, no car needed and the terminals are great. St Pancrass is so nicely restored

          Here in the us it’s sad. I take commuter rail to New York. Slow trains, ripped seats, intercom garbled-embarrassing.

      • Oh it’s near very trendee Battersea (pronounced Ba-ter-se-a as in Bel-gra-vi-a instead of just Ba-ter-see as a joke to make it sound posh). It is an up and coming area with a former huge art deco power plant that is being turned into condos and the Apple headquarters of Europe south of the Thames. It’s a great area with lots of new places. Here is the famous power plant. Everyone sees it driving in from Heathrow. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5ca4d0b84469a69de39ee93846a817e9b666ee7609d980310d32cb25c9aec307.jpg

            It was an industrial wasteland for decades. Now it is prime real estate, the way Canary Wharf was 30 years ago.

          • It amazes me that London can build a new 73 mile rapid speed crossrail line right through the center of the city — the Elizabeth Line — in 10 years — and open it on time (planned for this December). New York has been trying to build its Second Avenue Subway since the late 1940’s. The first three stations opened a year ago, and the rest of it remains unfunded. New York still does not have a cross-region rapid train service. The UK knows how to build infrastructure projects- the US does not.

          • William

            Austin built a one track commuter rail line 30 years after it was approved. Trains can’t go both ways on one track.

          • JAKvirginia

            You can expand beyond the UK and say all of Europe. In the future, most of Europe will be covered by some form of high-speed rail. Years ago, before it all started, the countries of Europe agreed on a standard gauge for high-speed rail. Now, a German train originating in Berlin can use the tracks all the way to London with no problem. Maybe the US will get true high-speed rail before I die, but I’m not counting on it.

    OT: I had some news at the doctor on Monday that I’m not quite ready to share with my family, but I could use some friendly advice. It looks like I have an autoimmune disease (maybe Lupus, maybe RA). I won’t know for sure until I see a rheumatologist at the end of March. It isn’t the end of the world, and I will likely feel better after I get some actual treatment instead of just deadening the pain with prescription pain killers. Do any of you have any experience with either disease or the medications used to treat them.

    • Max_1

All that I can offer, unfortunately is a hug & hope that you have good insurance & the best possible medical team(s).

      • Gretchen

        Thank you. I am very fortunate to have excellent health insurance. I even have a secondary that pretty much picks up anything the primary misses. I have a decent medical team, but they aren’t great at putting all the pieces together. Hopefully, having a rheumatologist on board will help.

      Make sure the doctors test for everything. About six months ago I found out that I have hemochromatosis. It’s a buildup of iron in the tissues. It isn’t detected with a regular blood test. I only found out by doing a genealogy DNA test. It just happened to be right at the age when symptoms appear. My doc had already tested me for RA because of some of the symptoms. She hadn’t even considered this cause.

      • Gretchen

        Thank you for the advice. Sometimes I feel like I have to go into the doctor with a potential diagnosis and ask to be tested. My PCP is very slow to act on anything, and it drives me nuts.

        • William

          Mine is usually on the ball, but she doesn’t go looking for zebras. My type of the blood disorder isn’t the severe version and usually is assumed to be arthritis. Nobody else in my family has ever been tested for it.

          • Gretchen

            I have an excellent hematologist, and I plan to send these test results to him just to keep him in the loop. I will definitely have the new rheumatologist consult with him, so hopefully they will find whatever needle is in my haystack.

          • William

            Hemochromatosis runs in families with Celtic ancestry. The more severe type can cause skin turn a bronze color. It also causes heart, liver and kidney damage along with swollen joints. Treatment for either version is bloodletting to lower iron levels.

          • Gretchen

            It sounds like I am probably safe. I have German ancestry on both sides, and I am about as pale as a sheet. I am slightly anemic, so I doubt anyone will want to do any bloodletting.

            I hope you are doing well now that you have a diagnosis. Chronic illness and pain just suck.

          • William

            Funny, I have more Germans up my family tree than Celts. As long as everyone was telling the truth.

          • Gretchen

            For the parts of my family that I can trace, they are all pretty much all German with a tiny little bit of Scottish and Native American. Of course who knows what may be lurking in my family tree for the lines I can’t trace. For all I know I may have Vulcan ancestry.

            I’m leary of those DNA kits since they make you waive your rights to not just the information but your actual DNA. Did you have a positive experience?

          • I have tested with three different companies, all positive experiences.
            My advice is forget (almost) everything your family has told you about your countries of origin, especially about any Native American ancestry…or you may be pleasantly surprised and find out they were right all the time. In my family myth we were told we are (on my mom’s side) 1/32nd Cherokee…the truth is more like 0.4%. There was a small surprise on the paternal side too, we all assumed that my dad was 100% Finnish but he was actually also part Norwegian and Swedish.
            23andMe offers both health and ancestry testing, that is how I find out I am a carrier for what William has,hemochromatosis.
            Oh, and I found out I am just under 4% Neanderthal

          • Gretchen

            That’s very interesting. I had a panel of genetic tests done with one of my doctors a couple years ago, but it wasn’t especially inclusive. I don’t recall learning much. I would definitely be willing to consider a much more thorough work-up. As much as I would like to know more about my ancestry, I’m just a little to nervous about the implications of the company retaining exclusive rights to the information. The world is in flux in a frightening direction, and I’m just not sure willing sharing DNA with a corporation who can use it however they see fit is in my best interest at this time. Hopefully that’s just paranoia talking.

            I am fortunate to have access to one side of my paternal lineage (both of my father’s grandparents on his mother’s side) online that trace both families back to the early 1700’s. That’s the only reason I am confident of any Native American ancestry (1/64) since as far as I know every person in the South claims to be a little bit Cherokee. My mother’s line is completely unknown past her own grandparents. For years family lore told that her grandfather was an escaped German prisoner of war until we did a little math and figured out he was more likely to be just an escaped prisoner from Germany.

            My father’s paternal line is equally unknown past his grandparents although he was raised in a community well-known for German immigrants.

            All that is to say, my assumption is that I am predominantly of German heritage, but I imagine that like most multi-generational Americans everything else is more of a patchwork quilt.

    • zhera

      I’ve had Fibromyalgia for more than 20 years. The diagnosis is more known now than it was back then. Several doctors put me in the ‘psych departement’ and it really did a number on me.
      My best advise is: Do NOT accept a bad doctor. You live with your body and YOU know it better than anyone.

      Best of luck and I hope your treatment helps!

      • Gretchen

        Thank you. That’s great advice.

    • It begins with misogyny and terminal Bernie Broism and progresses from there.

      • I think if Diane is defeated — she will gracefully bow out — and that is that. She has no aspirations for higher office. I do not expect her to complete her term anyway (unless by some nightmare a Republican is governor of California). If Trump is impeached, her role as lead Democratic Senator on Judiciary (and connections to Republicans) is invaluable — as is her role in approving or blocking any SCOTUS and District appellate nominee. I do not see her fighting a guts and gore primary fight. I do not vote in California any more — I have enough of a fight on my hands here in Florida to get Bill Nelson reelected to the Senate over that SOB Rick Scott.

      I get that on my other computer. I was updating graphics card software and Adobe Flash trying to see if it fixed the problem. Finally I switched to another computer.

      I also had been having that problem for the past couple of days. Never happened before. I did some tinkering with disqus settings and now everything is back. The big change I made was to “whitelist” JMG. Not sure why I had to do that now, as I never touched the settings before.

      • Harveyrabbit

        tnks. I don’t see any whitelist options in my Disqus settings though.

        • djcoastermark

          I’m sorry, just woke up and wasn’t thinking correctly yet. THe tinkering I had to do was in adblocker, not disqus. Are you using adblocker ?

          • Harveyrabbit

            Yes. I’ll check that out .. tnks.

          • djcoastermark

            Sorry for the incorrect info at first. Let me know how that works out.

          • Harveyrabbit

            Yes.. turns out that turning off my adblocker solves the problem. I’ll whitelist the site while I investigate why it does the blocking so selectively… perhaps I’ll be able to just delete a rule or two or create a less global whitelist rule. tnks

            (good to know it wasn’t Iiz Crokin’s demons!)

          • djcoastermark

            I only whitelisted JMG , and I still do not get any ads on this site. Don’t know if that helps you any.

          • Harveyrabbit

            That’s what I’ve done for the time being while I will do some more investigating later when I’ve got the time.

      Was just hearing worrying news re owls (here in California): marijuana grows, and the rodenticides that are often used on them. Which then gets into owls’ food chain. I’m very sorry (not) about the Precious Weed y’all might lose to rodents, but hurting owls? NOT OK!!!! >:-(

      • clay

        Generally, rodenticides are only used to protect seed-grain, and is applied with a fluorescent wax-based dye to mark it as no longer safe for human consumption.
        How’s it used on marijuana, since I assume that’s for human consumption?

        • Reality.Bites

          I have no insight into the pesticide issue.

          I’m wondering if it’s being used on illegal (and thereby unregulated) marijuana crops or legal ones, which I’m assuming are treated like other agriculture products.

          I was actually a bit shocked that they actually grow in outdoors. I was under the impression that while cannabis is a hardy plant that grows well in a variety of conditions, it grows best in a controlled indoor and or greenhouse hydroponic environment, where I assume there’d be no need for rodenticides.

          • clay

            Indoor cultivation comes with its own costs.

            From the article JCF linked, it appears to be illegal spraying on illegal fields. That would also make the contamination a possibly significant threat to humans, as well.

        • JCF

          You sound like you’re looking for the straight poop, clay, so here’s the scholarly article being referenced in the popular press (i.e. I just took the USA Today citation out, in favor of this!)

          http://www.ace-eco.org/vol13/iss1/art2/

          And it’s not just owls that are threatened.

          https://www.ucdavis.edu/news/rat-poison-marijuana-farms-killing-increased-numbers-rare-forest-mammal/

          • clay

            from the ACE-ECO article: “None of the rodent prey species sampled within the study area were positive for ARs.”
            from the UCDavis article: “The poison, which is often enhanced with bacon, fish and peanut butter ‘flavorizers,’ is scattered around illegal marijuana grows in remote sites to deter pests from the crop.”

            Illegal growers are distributing this pesticide in illegal ways, but failing to kill the rodents, which probably aren’t even be a pest on their crops. These idiots don’t understand agriculture OR mammalian biology– we use mice and rats as test species for human ingestion because our digestive systems and omnivorous needs are so similar– if it kills mice and rats, it kills us (considering weight differences), as well as weasels and owls. At least they aren’t spraying it on the crops, so they’re ‘only’ killing threatened and endangered keystone predators, not humans.

          • JCF

            I’m not sure I can go along w/ your “at least they aren’t…killing…humans”, clay. For what we, collectively, are doing to the environment, WE are the ones who deserve to die, not keystone predators!

    OT: I have no time for this shit dept.

    On the upcoming NBC show “Rise” about a drama or music high school teacher, starring Josh Radnor and based on a real story, the lead character’s sexual orientation is changed from gay to straight.

    Nope. Not acceptable. Not going to watch.

    Also read that Roseanne Barr’s real-life support for Trump will carry over to her sitcom character.

    Uh-uh. No. It’s one thing to have Karen Walker be a Trump supporter, but not a character who has always been portrayed as a moral arbiter like Roseanne Conner.

    And I certainly don’t have to worry about the careers of John Goodman, Laurie Metcalfe, Sara Gilbert, Johnnie Galecki and Sarah Chalke suffering by me not watching. As for Lecy whatever, she’s a homophobic piece of shit with no career. I hope it stays that way.

    • JCF

      I actually wouldn’t mind if Roseanne the CHARACTER supported Drumpf, if Roseanne Barr the showrunner didn’t! [Because I doubt the character will be written/portrayed as stupidly as a Drumpf-supporter actually is (See re Roseanne Barr)]

      Hadn’t heard re the “Rise” thing. Hey, I hope this doesn’t mean Josh Radnor is leaving “Mercy Street” (Civil War drama on PBS). I really *like* that show…

      • Reality.Bites

        Your point is well taken – just as Megan Mullally, the rest of the cast and the writers were Clinton supporters and Karen being an established crazy character, unlike our own Anastasia Beaverhausen who daily shows us that being an incredibly old, drunk, drug-addled tramp is no reason you can’t be for Hillary.

        These days with so many shows doing short seasons it was probably written around his commitment to Mercy Street, like Will & Grace was with Eric M.’s commitment to Travellers.

        But Rise has a problem – it’s alienating the core audience for a show about singing high school students – gay men of all ages and teenage girls and young women who have or want GBFs.

    • That_Looks_Delicious

      I didn’t really follow that when it was on. I saw maybe 3 episodes. Near zero chance that I would watch a reboot.

      Do you mean electorally? I find it hard to imagine a sitting Democratic senator who needs to worry about defeat.
