Just Questions: Things I Don't Understand

Question book-newImage via Wikipedia
Welcome to another edition of just questions. Sometimes I find it's the questions that I am pondering that provide the greatest insight into where I am currently. So I guess creating this post is metaphorically akin to opening up my brain and checking out what is rattling around inside.

So here are the questions I am currently pondering:

  1. Why do my dogs always want to lick my feet?
  2. Why don't people spay and neuter their pets?
  3. How come having problems swallowing has to be one of my symptoms of fibromyalgia?
  4. How come when I have coughing spells after said swallowing problems, a nerve shock wave travels down my arms, into my hands and causes increased pain, numbness and tingling for several hours afterward?
  5. Why is it so bad to use a benzodiazepine every night to help one fall asleep?
  6. How come my doctors aren't prescribing the same medications that my friends with chronic illnesses are getting?
  7. How come I am still wanting a prescription to be the answer to my chronic illness problems?
  8. Why isn't the Hepatitis C cause getting the funding, support and attention it deserves for things like public education, testing and treatment?
  9. Why doesn't the American public know that more people have Hepatitis C than HIV infection?
  10. Why isn't there a bigger push to get antiviral Hepatitis C drugs out of clinical trials and into the pharmacy faster?

What are some of the questions you find yourself asking lately? Why not share one or more here by leaving a comment?

Thanks ladies for your questions.

I see a theme here of wondering why we all have to be sick and wondering when will we ever get better. Believe me, I wish I had the answer!

Until then, let's hold each others hands and support one another through our illness ordeals.

Why am I the only one the dog asks for food, water and out?

Why can't I have the energy of my 3yo?

LOL great post idea. Though the fact your dog likes to lick your feet is interesting.

Wow, great questions. Where is that 8 ball when we need it?(Wait, that's not my question.)

Why did I have to take geometry?

Why can't a program that maps all our genes, map some cures?

Why doesn't Bill gates give his extra millions to find a cure CURE for AIDS here in the USA and THEN send it around the world?

CAN enough money really buy cures?
I'll stop, my ?s are endless.
