The Issue with Medical Doctors…

My neurologist’s appointment is today, at 8:00 in the morning, and it was scheduled a month and a half ago. By 6:00 AM, I was already parked and on my way inside the San Francisco Medical Tower, located next to San Francisco Hospital, where my doctor’s office is at.

The “funny” thing about this is that, every single time I have to come see him, it’s the same, old story. Even if I’m scheduled for 8 or 9 in the morning, the doctor doesn’t come in until 10 or 11. That means, getting out of the house while it’s still dark outside to make it early into the building, find a parking spot, walk to the office building and hope that, of all the people scheduled for the same time as I, I happen to be the first or amongst the first. Today, I’m the first one here. With luck, I’ll be out and on my way to work by 11-11:30. Of course, that will all depend on the time the doctor arrives. The good thing is that he’s not the kind to diddle-daddle around: he starts calling in patients the minute he walks in. Plus, he’s good at what he does: he’s kept my migraines under a decent amount of control, plus he “discovered” my arthritis and is also treating me for it.

Even if it’s a hassle, as long as he provides me with top-notch medical care, I’ll keep on seeing him for as long as he’s in practice. Now, if only the secretaries would come in: being on my feet for too long kills my arthritic hip and lower back, not to mention the shoulder cramps I get on my shoulders, even when I switch my bag from one shoulder to the other. Let’s hope they come in, soon.

Breakfast oatmeal love: Vegan Apple Pie Oatmeal 

After the success of my Creamy Vegan Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal, I came down one morning and saw apples sitting in the fridge and new instantly what had to be done. Of course, my mental thought process was helped by the fact that my mother was making an actual apple pie. Well, nearly. It was a pear tart, but the cinnamon-vanilla scented inspiration stands. A combination of sweet, soft but slightly crunchy stewed apples, rum-soaked raisins, chewy almond milk oatmeal, crunchy walnuts topped with a sprinkling of cinnamon, it was a divine luxury of a breakfast.
Dice half an apple into 1cm or bite-sized chunks, and put them in a cooking pot with 1/4 cup of apple juice on a medium heat until they become soft. Meanwhile, soak raisins in liquid to make the dried grapes inflate with a little water - I like to use rum, just because it tastes perfect with raisins. 
In a toaster oven or on a pan, toast the walnuts for around 5-10 minutes on a low heat. Then chop them up.
In the cooking pot with the apples, add your almond milk for oatmeal cooking (I use 3/4 cup) and bring to a boil. Then, put in your oatmeal (I use 35g for 3/4 cup of almond milk) and cook with the apples until it reaches your desired consistency. Add the raisins, chopped walnuts and top with cinnamon seasoning.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson
