I believe in the human rights to life and liberty. These rights are being interfered with, and I will fight for them to the supremest court I can. It is plain and simple to me. No-one has the right to tell me I cannot have medical treatment of any kind, especially for a life-shortening or life-ending disease. CCSVI is such a disease.
I believe I have it, and if anyone says I don't, I believe it is up to them, not me, to prove it to my satisfaction, by reasonable means of diagnosis.
Even if they do, I retain the right to treatment by a doctor of my choice.
If I choose to be treated by a doctor that somebody else calls a quack, first of all it does not affect anyone else's state of health if I am, and secondly it is up to such a person, not me and not said doctor, to prove what they say.
To anyone who wants to tell me any different, regardless of their membership in any medical or scientific profession, or social networking or interest group, I say, kindly go to hell.
My mother used to tell me why she thought Russians were less free than us. It had to do with how hard it was to say no and how easy it was to say yes, in a given language. In English, No was easy, Yes was harder. In Russian, Da was easy, Nyet was a bit harder. I don't say I believed her. I'm just sayin'. How hard is no? Easy, isn't it? That's why we have to keep those neigh-sayers under control. And sometimes, we have to tell them to go to hell.
