Things are not going so well in the world of investing. It seems that each and every generation has it's crash or when things go from bright to bleak. Should you sell off? Maybe, but when things do improve, at least for a while then you would have to have repurchased your stocks to get in on the action. The government shutdown has not helped any and you're sitting here wondering about retirement. I suppose the good news here is that the market went bleak for a number of years when I didn't have any money invested. Now that I do, I understand the situation and am trying to find a way to save money without the constant downtrend that the stock market can bring. An investment portfolio is supposed to be a well-rounded one that reflects a lot of everything and includes all that you need to sustain yourself in turbulent times and of course retirement. But the truth is that once people purchase stocks, index funds, crypto currency it seems that these investment come down to keeping people away from being able to retire. Think about it, we have a system here that is basically a casino in business suits. Every type of table or offer of investment became craps. Yes, it is quite depressing as it reminded me of the job market. My strategies seemed a little off because you find it hard to imagine that people would set up a system that is designed to work for the dealer and not the player. Which means your money is taken when all is good and used to make more money for the dealer, as you look at your stocks and noticed you have no windfall, so to speak and they all seem to be hanging solid for the moment. But then once the market goes down the dealer has already made their money and you now have less than what you started out with. Imagine if currency or money were treated that way. For example: if the dollar were worth $1.50 one day and $0.80 cents the next, and you went to the store to buy goods and your money was matched against the worth of what the dollar was going for that day, this means that you would have to spend more or sometimes less depending on what the dollar was worth. Each and every morning people would arise to what the value of the dollar would be to make sure that they had enough money to get to work and buy things that they need or want. The price of goods would increase to accommodate for the decrease in people who actually shop and we would easily go into hyperinflation mode in attempts to make the dollar more sustainable. Eventually the country would be broke. So now when it comes to the stock market, we have to avoid this type of repetitive panic. We need a fresh start and a way to put money aside so that we do not have to play this game of roulette each and every single day. There are other options that need to be considered and are probably the best way to do things when one is tired of the gamble that put lots of people in the negative for all the time and money they have spent. This will be a resolution of sorts, I've grown tired of the casinos!
I have been a holistic person for a while now. It began when I felt that Western medicine or solutions could not do enough for what I wanted them to do for me. I wanted to stay healthy and not feel the affects of old age creep up on me quicker than the wind. I never wanted to have to and complain about some disability that would have me dependent upon someone or people . In doing so I didn't think I was asking too much it was just that when I was younger I was constantly bothered by what would be a problem as I got older. Yes, I thought this way and I'm glad I did because I do feel that my approaches to things have helped me with longevity. My gray hair is premature, but that's how my life was. The kid adult, so you kind of grown into it in some ways. But anyhow, I just can't seem to take complaints about health issues that can be remedied or even cured holistically. Why? Because people tend to ruin the quality of life by going back and forth to the doctors and using all kinds of Western Medicine know how to help with a medical dilemma. I am not the first person to go this route of trying to figure things out without medical intervention but it bothers me when others just want to rely on physicians. The thing here is that people will tell you "the answers are always inside." That was an excuse so that I don't get company insurance, or need it to see a physician. Strange, but what seemed to be a financial curse turned out to be a blessing because I have remained healthy at least by my way of thinking for many a year now, without the use of physicians, who will just take what money I have and will keep me indebted to them without a cure. Yes, this was a blessing as I think of those greedy people who wanted it all for themselves. You know the high paying jobs, the retirement plan, vacations, bankers holidays off, raises, and all kinds of other benefits. Why, because greed put many of those people in poor health because they ignored their own. I got put into the "well rounded " category so when that happens you need to know a lot about everything and be able to use it to help yourself so that you don't rely on the expertise of physicians, accountants or attorneys that others in the "not so well rounded" area of life are able to utilize. I do say that in all my hard work this turned out to be a blessing. So I fret and complain when I'm told of a problem someone is having that requires a medical intervention. It gets me upset and I consider that person ruining my quality of life because now they have to rely on doctors and other medical people to get them through this. As for myself, I choose to go about things naturally and find the answers within. My next thing is to stop worrying about people who choose to use physicians as part of their healthcare regimen, this I decided not to do as long as I don't have to. Patients and health complainers are sometimes people who are not well rounded and cannot find the answers to their own problems within themselves. I can't worry about that and the only thing I can do is distance myself from it because that is not the life I lead or intend to. Too many health problems, too many physician's visits just ruins the quality of life. The greed must stop, so I need to not concern about people who should be able to find the answers within, but don't, as they will rely on others to feel sorry for them and fret and tend to their every dependent need. Well rounded people need their own lives and not this noise that can probably be controlled within and without the use of western medicine. There are real or more serious problems in the world that people actually need the use of a physician or a hospital and other care takers. Because there are things that cannot be solved within. Yes, I agree. But for the things you can do, one is best off by doing so!
We live in an era where opportunities and chances have to be created. This means that instead of working that regular beat to beat job we have to do more. This sounds unfair because this means that for the most part all we do is work and use our creativity to try and provide for ourselves or use it as an anchor of education so that it is viewed upon as experience for that beat to beat job. Whoever heard of such a thing? What thing? When there are companies that supposedly need people to employ to do certain types of work but then, they don't want to hire them. This is bad, very bad. That means fewer jobs for the rest of us and companies that don't do very well in the end-their bad. I often ask myself, what is it about people that makes them want to decide to have an already stressed population of people just to put more stress on them? I think that all of this is way too much on a person in that it causes a person to work in many different directions and lots of times around the clock just so that one day they can retire. Honestly, that word will be obsolete one day or as they say thrown out with the bath water since you have an employment sector that does not pay very much. They say that money is the root of all evil. It is because you need it to live or at least survive financially. Side bar: I often think of reasons as to why this is is all happening. The gov't or powers that be probably decided that it was best if they let people recreate the land and it's opportunities instead of having them already vested into what was already created due to the corruptness of lineage of this whole I'm a bottom and you're a top thing. That's usually they way things start off, unfairly and then nothing in life becomes that way due to how it all began. Yes, it's the foundation that had to crumble so that people could become anew. This absolutely sucks because my generation didn't get that full opportunity of employment that should have been made available because years ago I was new school in an old world. In order to get away from "tradition", people were challenged into who they really were and what they had to offer. By doing so and eventually one would create an independent opportunity for themselves that definitely would not have existed. This is true because otherwise the golden opportunities that should be available now are not. In that really golden era my ancestors did what they did because that's all that was available for the most part. Gov't schemes in that they use this as a way to say "people don't change" and life has hence become a marathon in the long run, so if you delve into what your interests are and what you really like to do naturally, then in the long run you may make out because of the opportunities that become available. This is like saying, "If you want something done, you have to do it yourself." I get it really and that's why I'm a loner! You know once it's understood you complain less, talk less and socialize less. Because that understanding provides the knowledge about people and how fragile they are about their own survival. They would survive anyways, but yours becomes more challenging due to the chances and opportunities you need to create. Anyways, how much of your salary should go to gifts for the holidays? Especially, when you have to survive and live in a world where opportunities are not offered often. Yup, who you purchase from may also be of important decision making. Yes, now we all get it, we have to create that foundation otherwise it becomes a challenge to be accepted. Things becomes less and less for businesses who wanted to show people what they truly were about and that is their bad!
There's gotta be another way. I say to myself. I never even looked at a hospital website unless I was searching for employment or looking to complain about one thing or another. But when it comes to obtaining information regarding medical or radiology medical records, my goodness there a very few hospitals or medical facilities that have that information displayed in a way that would prevent the barrage of phone calls that very busy hospitals and affiliated medical facilities become annoyed about. Now, I'm all for universal website access in that I can log in with a company identification and then proceed to search for a claimant until I am successfully able to locate a claimant and all of the information requested by the attorneys on my own. Generally, I prefer it that way. Being on hold and transferred from department to department and given numbers and addresses that may not coincide with that on the HIPAA authorization forms can really cause problems, in that the HIPAA says one thing and the medical or radiology records records person say another. There has to be an open access way to obtain medical record and or radiology information without the conflicting addresses and the re-sending of medical records, over and over and that includes records that were supposed to be updated records. With a universal or open access approach, I can sift through the records just to find what is updated. I know medical office people do way too much and are underpaid and they just send what is available in hopes that the person on the receiving end will look through the notes and chart to determine what is needed. Updated, means just that, but I know a medical office is extremely too busy to go through and find the latest note to send to whoever is requesting it. Healthcare in general needs to have a database or a general one where facilities or third party companies can go to to obtain hospital and related facility records. Persons who work for companies who are third party collectors on behalf of law firms would welcome this, since they would no longer have to figure out where to mail and of course where to fax. If hospitals and facilities are unable to provide general access portals for those requesting medical records, then there needs to be a way for such access, as this process is often tedious and is actually time consuming. It's ok to provide medical records contact information online and most very busy medical facilities should, but there really needs to be another way. Technology needs to be incorporated so that third party medical records representatives along with other companies needing access to the same information can have access to medical records information without calling constantly to make sure they have the correct address or fax number. It's not easy for you and to be honest it's not for those who attempt to obtain the medical record information either. Stop being annoyed and allow technology to be the access for those seeking records in the medical record community or in the interim hospitals and facilities should provide their medical records department access information for medial records and radiology. In some instances these are two separate departments and of course this goes for medical records and radiology requests from physicians who are on staff at a hospital and who see patients even though they have their own practice. All this needs to be communicated as far as obtaining medical records are concerned. If you provide this information online, it will alleviate the pressure from the constant calls for medical record information later, until there is universal or open access for medical and radiology records. This is medical record fitness at it's best!
