    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    hi Waybread, I can only eat lukewarm stuff, I don't react well to either cold or hot. I would not have enough to file a complaint against the ENT doc, anyone can have an adverse reaction to drugs, I would bear the burden of proof that he didn't examine me properly, and/or that he actually...

    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    Hi Waybread and Frisiangal, I promised an update. To cut it short, because I had a fever almost ever day, my GP decided to drop the brain MRI and go for a neck and chest CT instead, the appointment was on Friday, 11 March. We are still waiting for the radiologist's report. Just before the CT...

    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    hi Frisiangal, thanks for your reply. As far as I can tell, I didn't do anything or gone anywhere special the days before the onset. They were average weekdays. It was the first week of January, so back to normal routine after the holidays. It's true that I am very much of an introvert...

    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    Hi Waybread, Thank you for your replies. Theoretically, there is very little chance that the epiglottitis comes back, it's quite rare a condition so its recurrence is even more rare. I think whatever is going on now, could probably be some kind of after-effect or something that I had at the...

    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    Hi Waybread, I haven't travelled outside France for years, and I don't have any chronic conditions (that I know of), so I am not on any kind of medication. It was my family doctor who diagnosed the epiglottitis, the specialist came later. He sent me home with a prescription for steroids and...

    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    hi Waybread, No, the ENT specialist didn't look for anything else, he only checked the epiglottis. But I've had a fever again since yesterday, so I will try and get my family doctor to send me back for another checkup. (It's not very easy atm, France has lost about 20% of its health...

    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    hi Waybread, I've never tried protein shakes, I guess it's time I did. The epiglottitis was caused by a bacterial infection, I was given some heavy weight antibiotics (Levofloxacin) and steroids. It's difficult to pick an "onset" because it happened fast, but in waves or episodes. At...

    Epiglottitis and swallowing problems

    Hi All, I would like to ask some advice from those of you experienced in medical astrology. I was diagnosed with epiglottitis on 6th January. I'll skip the details unless you think they are useful. It was tough and quite scary, but we managed to avoid the intensive care unit and intubation...

    Unexplained illness for 2 years now... no answers. Is it cancer? Infection? Virus?

    hi, Medical astrology is not really my area , but for info about the health of the native, I would start with the ascendant and its ruler. Here Mars is in Libra, ruled by Venus in the 8th. Then we have the stellium in the 11th house, 3 or them in Libra. Venus, the ruler of Libra is in Cancer...

    OK, so Mercury conjunct Uranus is a "genius" aspect.

    That would be neat, wouldn't it? They are in sextile. Moon-Saturn are in Virgo and Mercury-Uranus are in Scorpio. I could be Jane Goldilocks Holmes, the daughter of Miss Marple and Sherlock Holmes. But why not the other way around? Every saturday morning, Moon-Saturn fill their little cart...

    OK, so Mercury conjunct Uranus is a "genius" aspect.

    I think "abrupt" is a good keyword with Uranus. With a Mercury contact, we can talk about flashes of insight, intuition and/or inspiration, unexpected shifts in perspective... But also drawing blank, shock, trauma, sudden breakdowns of communication... The mind tends to have moments or periods...

    Out-of-sign Conjunctions (Thoughts and experiences)

    In traditional astrology, applying aspects indicate facets of the personality or circumstances that intensify as the person ages, while separating aspects lose their intensity with time. Mars applying to Saturn would be like an athlete training for a major competition, or a soldier preparing for...

    Can we look at astrology from a scientific point of view?

    1. I am not a psychologist. 2. My problem with petosiris' post was that he labels those who do not agree with him "arrogant". Why call people names when they disagree with you? Why the bashing? There can be a myriad of reasons why one person disagrees with another (different life experiences...

    Can we look at astrology from a scientific point of view?

    Maybe I get you wrong, but from what I have read from you so far, it seems like you take a practice humankind has been involved in for millennia, and appoint yourself to a position to decide what to keep and what to discard, based on your preferred theoretical framework, which you call...

    The clockwork of Astrology

    I'm sorry, I took that as sarcasm. We read Kant differently. The way I see it, he was moving away from Descartes' dualism, and exploring the connection between the two "realms". And then came Husserl, with his Cartesian Meditations, and his phenomenology. And so on. I don't see Kant as...

    The clockwork of Astrology

    I'm not skeptical about astrology. I finished my above post with "Not because astrology doesn't work, but because of how causality works". That means that in my experience, astrology works, but I do not accept causality as an explanation for it. Where's the arrogance in this? I'm sorry, I'm...

    The clockwork of Astrology

    The problem with causality is that it's an abstraction. Hume takes an interesting position (in An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding) when he points out that in real life no two events are exactly the same. When we make a connection between a cause and a situation it supposedly brings...

    Using planetary patterns: the Locomotive

    Re: Using planetary patterns: the Locomotive. Bobby Fisher - Leonardo 6DaVinci :) I understand Jones' point of view, but I don't agree with him. "Ralph Waldo Emerson, the American transcendentalist, is an interesting example of a native who for forty-three years functioned as a bowl...

    Using planetary patterns: the Locomotive

    Re: Using planetary patterns: the Locomotive. Bobby Fisher - Leonardo DaVinci Do you agree with Jones on that? Doesn't it seem more logical that if we use modern techniques (like Jones' analysis of hemispheric patterns), then we must include modern planets because their creator was already...

    Using planetary patterns: the Locomotive

    Re: Using planetary patterns: the Locomotive. Bobby Fisher - Leonardo DaVinci Do you think that if asked to guess the chart pattern of "the most diversely talented person to have ever lived", Jones would have picked the locomotive (or the bucket)? Wouldn't he have chosen the splash...
