Disabled American Veterans in Philippines

Disabled American Veterans in Philippines
I think I am physically disabled, if I was an American Vet maybe I would qualify for free money. The Philippines is a great place for disabled American Veterans.

I am NOT an American Veteran, I truly do not understand, I am just giving an opinion.

Why the Philippines for Medical Treatment?
1. Cheap to live here.
2. Other Veterans to help answer medical problems fill out the forms and help you qualify for free money.
3. Physical Therapy cost about 5-7 US Dollars per visit.

Why is Andy the HoboTraveler.com disabled?



I broke my left femur in a motorcycle accident when I was 23 years old; a drunk person with no insurance hit me with his car. I believe because I had a Fatty Embolism the doctors decided not to operate, they did NOT put a rod in my femur. Instead, they put me in traction and allowed the bones to connect. Presently my thy is not straight and has a huge lump where the callous precipitated into bone to compensate for the break.

I personally think they should have made plates and screwed the 3-4 bone pieces into proper alignment, they kept telling me it was in perfect alignment, I would say Doctor Hadawi in Bloomington, Indiana lied to me.

Disabled Defined
Unable to perform particular activities: describes somebody with a condition that makes it difficult to perform some or all of the basic tasks of daily life.

When people ask me about my broken thy bone or femur, I say,
“I cannot high jump 6 foot anymore.”

The Disable Americans Vets in Baguio discuss percentages.

“I am 60 percent disabled and I get 3000 dollars per month”
“He is 100 percent disable and gets 6000 dollars per month.”

I tend to think the goal of many disabled American Vets is to increase the percentage from say 30-80, or 80 to 100 and thereby increase their monthly pay.

What problems I have today

Ever since I broke my femur, I have never been able to push off with my toes properly, I cannot jump correctly, however more important the left butt muscle atrophies. When I worked in the USA, I would work out in the gym, do specific exercises to keep the muscles in the left leg closer to the same size as the right leg, it never worked.

Sciatica or Piriformis Syndrome is caused by imbalance or structural problems in the bones.

Example: A very fat person’s stomach strains the spine until it pops…. Hehehe. The vertebrae pushes against the spinal cord and you have Sciatica or pain down your leg.

I am not fat, I say I am fat, but I am only about 20 pound overweight, in comparison to men in my same age group, I am skinny… this is sad.

I am sitting here in San Fernando, Bauang, La Union, Philippines asking myself this question.

“What is the advantage for me, Andy Graham with this disability to be in the Philippines?”

There are many, I mean the list is so numerous I am going to have trouble explaining simply. Generally though the reason is this, I can waddle my way through all the possible problems, question, answers and solutions cheaply.

Example, I am going to go get an X-ray of my femur, I have not seen one since I was 23, and I want to know what the status is today. I want to have a doctor tell me what he or she thinks.

Maybe 20 Dollars to do this or maybe 30.

Playing the “What if game” is possible to do here; I can explore possible solutions cheaply. I can compensate, learn, train myself to circumvent these medical problems, I can minimize the disability.

Doctors perform Trial and Error methods

I talked with a Doctor in Thailand.
I talked with a Doctor in Lorma Hospital here in Philippines.

I said, I have a nodule or cysts on my back, I then say I have sciatic nerve pain. They answer,
“We need to get an MRI.”

I say, what is this Cyst, this baby hurts?

They ignore the cyst and continue towards the MRI, I have now appeased them and they say, yes you have a bulge pushing against your nerve. I say fine, but the cyst is still hurting.

There answer is for me to go to physical therapy. I see this as just passive treatment to try to get me to stop talking about the pain. More or less pain management, not solving the problem.

Error

I can afford to go to this Hospital daily until I am happy, this is great. It cost me about 10 US dollars per visit, or about 500 Pesos.

Trial and Error until I succeed, this is truly the art of success for any business, eliminate all the negatives and what is left is the solutions. I will continue to ask question until I solve this problem. Better yet, I will continue to explain my broken femur, the lack of muscle, get an x-ray and do this until they see clear, the well-defined problem explains the solution.

Here is the link where I information for my sciatica disability: Sciatia Solutions

If you are critical thinker and want to learn about related information on how we work through this mental masturbation, I would recommend you read this book called Psycho Cybernetics, a book showing you how we work toward goals by doing the wrong things.
