Leedur, I am always surprised how our devices don't work with AFib, you would think it would be just a small adjustment to lead placement. After all with a Biventricular Pacer, the 3rd lead goes on the left side via a vein already.
I do not get AFib, which to me is a pain in the neck. The blood thinners used over here for AFib ALONE, you have to have it before you are prescribed them, are far superior to Warfarin, but I still have to use the Rat sac.
As for the happy weed, I was getting it illegally from my daughters boyfriend, and I was using it mainly to raise my appetite. It was brilliant, nearly ate the house empty when I was using it. I had asked my surgeon and GP about using it, and their only concern was about monitoring the strength. The was relevant one time, and the last time I used, as I got as high as a kite and really did not like the effects. I have been offered it again, but have not accepted as I really did get a weird experience and as you all know, with head spins and light headedness just as a result of our hearts behaviour, this added on top made me scared,
Off topic but memories are flowing
I must admit I had a lot of fun the other evening. One of the other people who live in my retirement village is an old druggie. I really don't have anything to do with her other than my best friend here, who has sort of taken her under her wing. We were having a bit of a soiree here, and I happened to have a bag of catnip sitting near my recliner. Well I noticed her looking at it all night, and didn't say a word. When she was leaving she of course asked me if she would have some, I agreed and gave her the whole bag, well to say the least, she was overjoyed. I let her go home and I was actually going to let her try it and ask her the next day how it went, but I have a goody two shoes good mate and she dobbed me in. I would love to have been a fly on the wall when this woman got her bong going and her reaction to the stuff. I don't think it is dangerous for humans, but I never got to test it.
Years ago when I was a young Detective in the Vice Squad, we were at a suspects house doing a drug raid, and a person came into the room I was in, laughing his head off, as he had just "sold glucoden (a sugar supplement) to the Drags in Dalgetty street as Heroin." Well I knew the drags in Dalgetty Street, and was a bit disgusted with this moron. So I charged him with false pretences, and he was convicted in the local magistrates court. I don't think this had been done before or after that I know of.
About a week later I was chatting to the "girls' and asked them how the deal was and they told me it was great. Makes you wonder if all these casual users need is a dose of sugar to get a high.
