My Personal Experience With Ulcerative Colitis

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on October 29, 2008

                                             On Set of UC
 
The first symptons of Ulcerative Colitis appeared for me in May 2005, though at the time I had no idea what I had or what was to come! The symptoms I had first were abdominal pain and bloating like I had really bad trapped wind and talking of wind! that was another symptom. It isn’t strictly a diagnostic trait of UC but I think many sufferers of UC will admit it should be! I don’t think many people like to talk about it because they feel it’s embarrasing, but I’m going to say it, when you fart and you are currently in a flare-up of UC… it smells so bad it makes you want to be sick! It isn’t always really bad… but it isn’t nice. It isn’t just the wind itself it’s the amount of it! So I was having this wind and abdominal pain, of course I noticed it and so did the rest of the family, mostly my dad. He kept saying to me “You  better get to the Doctors with that because it’s not normal!”. I didn’t go to the Doctors straight away because the symptoms came and went, and after talking to my mam who occasionally has Irritable Bowel Syndrome, I just thought it was that as I was stressed at the time. I’d started going out again after being a recluse for over three years because of anxiety, so the anxiety was causing me some stress. Anyway, so I carried on regardless but things started to get worse, I couldn’t make it to my college class in the evening because on the day I was meant to go the pain started, I couldn’t get to my speach therapy appointments or group meetings. I also couldn’t exercise either because the abdominal cramps got worse when I started bending, sit ups or anything that involved my abdomin. It was around this time, around late June or early August, that I started to go to the toilet more frequently to empty my bowels, I didn’t have any blood yet just some weird looking, malformed poos and ocassional diarrhea!

                                                     

                                                         September 2005

September 2005 came around, September 13th or 14th to be exact, and I decided to see a doctor and get his opinion. As I thought he would say, he said it was Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but I asked him…

Is there a possiblity it could be something else, because I’ve read books and there’s a lot of stuff it could be? (I’d read about UC but didn’t think it was that, even though I had some of the symptoms)

He said… Well, there’s a possibility it could be Ulcerative Colitis or some other Inflammatory Bowel Disease. But that’s unlikely as you’d have severe abdominal pain, blood and more than 6 stools a day. Do you have any of that?“.

Me: No

Docotor:Well there’s nothing to worry about, we’ll just have to keep an eye on you in case it is anything like that“.

After that he wrote me a prescription for some IBS medication I can’t remember the name of, and with that I was off home. On my way home I started to feel the need to empty my bowels, it came and went, so when I got home I told my mam and dad what the Doctor said and then went to the toilet. And would you believe what happend, after going to the doctor and telling him I had no blood… there was blood literally 15 minutes after I’d seen him! I told my dad, he said “Did you have that before?” Me: “No” Dad: “You better make another appointment and tell him!”. I said I would and still assumed it was Irritable Bowel, because bloody stools aren’t uncommon with IBS.

September 16th rolled around! Between the 13th/14th and the 16th the Colitis was slowly getting worse but I still put it down to Irritable Bowel, but it was manageable. Later in the day on September 16th I found my father dead. As you can imagine the shock of finding my father dead had a singnificant effect on the Colitis. Between the 16th of September when he died and the 23rd of September when he was buried I had started going to the toilet six times a day and having only two bloody diarrhea bowel movments, the other four were painful straining movments cosisting of mucus, clotted and clear blood. After the funeral was all done and over with I felt an obligation to take my fathers place and be the person in the family who deals with all the bills and looks after the family. Bad idea considering I was already stressed up with my own anxiety problems and my fathers sudden death. My youngest sister didn’t take well to me being ‘the man of the house’ and fought against everything I said and did. Taking care of the bills was even harder, I’d never had to deal wit the UK benefits system before and it was so complicated. Maybe if the goverment had left my mother with what she had before it would have been a little easier to understand, but they changed everything! She got an extra five pounds and because of that our rent and council tax went up! Well after a month or so of this it wasn’t helping the Colitis so I let my mother handle everything, except my yougest sister which I still had to look out for whether she liked it or not.

                                                            October 2005

All through October 2005 the UC got worse and I was going to the toilet seven or eight times a day, feeling tired and losing my appetite. I’d seen the doctor again in September and he refered me to a specialist in Inflammatory Bowel Diease, but while I was waiting for the appointment I still didn’t have much idea what it was and I still didn’t have any medication for it. Then in early November 2005 I saw the specialist and he took a biopsy from my colon, and he said it looks like Ulcerative Colitis, but he couldn’t tell till the biopsy results came back. But till then he gave me a perscription for Mesalazine tablets and suppositories. The results came back and it was Ulcerative Colitis, the next step was a colonsocpy to see the extent of the disease. That was to come in 2006.

                                                         November 2005

All through November 2005 I had a bad, painful time, the worse I’ve ever had with the UC! Towards the end of November I was having ten or twelve bowel movments a day on average. Some times it was fourteen or more on the bad days! I was asked by the specialist if any foods I ate made it worse, and I said pretty much anything I ate it didn’t matter, the UC was always there. He told me about some foods that make it worse, one was milk. I had pan of custard one Sunday night, made with whole milk, and that was the worse night I spent with UC ever! I had a fever, I’d been to the toilet sixteen times, couldn’t sleep even though I was tired, vomiting and abdominal cramping like I was being punched or someone was twisting my colon. I used to sit on the toilet for so long my legs would fall to sleep and my back would ache because my bowels were straining so much. After this little episode I decided to drink soya milk instead of our normal for about a three weeks… Didn’t make a bit of difference to me. The UC was still bad, so bad in fact I went to the hospital A&E two times, both times they turned me away and said “The amount of blood you lost is not as worse as it looks.” Funny that, it was running down my legs every day all through October and November, and they never saw it, if they had they would have agreed I needed to be there! I ended up developing anemia. One Friday night I had the blood again and a pain in my chest as well is in my abdomin, I didn’t want to go because I just thought they’d turn me away again like the previous two times. But my mother had other ideas and called an ambulance.

After waiting for over an hour or so in the waiting room I was seen and some X-rays were taken. I then waited another couple of hours for that and some blood tests to come back. The result was that I was anemic, which I already knew,  and had fecal loading (constipation) even though I was still having dirrahea. The constipation was caused by the iron tablets I had to take for my anemia, the pain killers I had to take and the Immodium to stop me having diarrhea. The Immodium was a complete waste of time for me, all it did was make my insides hurt, I told the doctors this when they gave them to me and they wouldn’t listen. Time after time they said “Take an Immodium, it’ll ease the pain and stop diarrhea”. Well, let me tell you… it didn’t! It just bound me up inside and made it hurt even more! Because the Immodium was just combining with the iron tabs and pain killers and causing constipation. It didn’t even stop the Diarrhea or blood. And this was the reason why I ended up in hospital for three and a half days. I hated it, I was so depressed… I was stuck in a side ward on my own (I was actually glad of that because the main ward was full of sick alcoholics). Every time I needed the toilet I had to pull the drip in to a small toilet with me that was part of the room, I was glad for that to because I couldn’t have draged that to the main ward toilets! I was bored, lonely, sick and in pain… even though I had pain killers they wern’t working on me, because they were pain killers for arthritis. I couldn’t have normal pain killers because they contributed to the constipation. After three and half days of small food portions, a drip and a day of laxitives I was on my way home, still sick and with pain.

                                                   December 2005 – 2006

December 2005 and the majority of 2006 were pretty much the same, I was expirencing the severe disease most of the time with a little let up in symptoms now and again. It was also in early 2006 I had the colonsocpy (camera up the back passage) and they found that I had Pan colitis, which means my whole large intestine (colon) was inflamed with Ulcerative Colitis. I also started taking predfoam enemas in mind 2006, but they didn’t work so I gave up on them. Which in retrospect was somewhat of a foolish thing to do. But the doctors gave me a medication to treat left sided colitis when I had pan colitis, it just didn’t work! All through 2006 I started wondering if I’d ever get better, it seemed I’d had the UC for years. Some people never got fully better at all, I started to think that I was one of them.

                                               2006 – 2007 Slow Recovery

In late 2006 early 2007 I decided to give the enemas another chance, because I was sick to death of diarrhea and pain. Nothing happend at first just as I thought, then it started getting better gradually, I’d say it took three or four months in all, it wasn’t perfect, I still got ocassional pain, blood and diarrhea.. but it was better than the alternative. While things were getting better I had to address the problems the medicine was causing, the Mesalazine and Predfoam enemas had caused really bad acne on my face, chest and back. It pretty much had scard my face badly, so I started taking a strong ance treatment that guranteed to get rid of the ance and would mean I would never get them again as bad. I still asked the Dermatologist “What happens when I finish taking the course and I my UC medicine brings them back?” She basicaly said that wouldn’t happen, or at least it wouldn’t happen as bad. Anyway, I took the ance medication in to 2008 with good results!

                             Below is chart of my UC flare ups and mile stones: 

                Photobucket

                                         The Present  And Recent Flare Up

Early 2008 Was a good year so far! My UC had practically gone 100%! I had stopped taking my predfoam because I didn’t need it any more, the Doctor said if I feel fine I could leave it and just use the Mesalazine. But the dermatologist had discovered a new problem, I had a Dermoid Cyst in my mouth, and it was growing down the right side of my neck. So I needed an operation to remove it! As you can guess the op was painful and stressful, they used a lot of antibiotics on me to keep off infection in my mouth and neck. I came out of the hospital feeling like crap and not long after the Colitis flared up! I started taking predfoam straight away and it was no good again, the UC steadily increased, it stopped me from exercise again because all the physical activity made it worse. This time it’s not the same as it used to be though. It’s very intermitant, I can go from stage one of the illness to stage two in half an hour! I only have three or four attacks of diarrhea and blood three times a week now, usualy when I go to the toilet. I only stay in each zone for a couple of hours each time, then after that it’s usualy just some mild abdominal pain. Even though I’m using the enemas the UC just isn’t shifting like it did last time, the UC is going then coming back but not to that level that it was when I first developed it.

                                              The Future And Problems 

But still, it’s painful and very inconvenient! I still dont know how a full time realtionship or job would effect me. I’ve thought about relationships alot and how the UC woud effect it, I always think why would a woman want somone like me, not only with UC but bad anxiety some times. I can’t go out or do much of anything, I can’t even exercise at home. There’s also the flare up of bad acne I get with using the medication (I have some now). The same goes for work, I’m not really obliged to tell a potential employer I suffer with UC unless they ask, but if I can’t even exercise at home how am I going to work a physical job? There are non physical jobs, but I don’t have to be doing anything physical to get stressed out and wind-up with a flare up.

I’m not going to lie and say I’m optimistic about the future, because like everyone with Ulcerative Colitis I face a future of flare ups, pain, possible cancer, realtionship problems, lack of a social life, fewer job prospects and good quality of life. However! I am aware of one thing that triggers my UC… My anxiety, and anxiety means stress and that means a flare up! I think if I can control my anxiety and stress levels I can hault the UC in its tracks. But that’s easier said than done, but I will be trying!

Ulcerative Colitis

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on October 25, 2008

                                                                                                Introduction

I’m writing this to document and introduce you all to illness you may not have heard of. It’s a disease I suffer from called Ulcerative Colitis (UC), it’s a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) of the large colon/intestine. I’m also writing this for anyone who suffers from UC and has just been diagnosed with it, because when I was first diagnosed I could find no personal accounts of UC anywhere, a Doctor telling you X Y and Z wasn’t good enough for me because they aren’t the ones suffering with it. They also hold back with a lot of info. So this is for suffers of UC to know you are not alone and UC CAN be controlled and DOES get better! This is part one explaining what UC is from a person who actually suffers with it. Part two will be my personal experience. After that I will be writing a Ulcerative  Colitis Diary once a month or so in-between my other blog material, for my own benefit mostly, but also because I think it makes a good topic and gives me the incentive to record and document what happens with my UC.

                                                                                   What Is Ulcerative Colitis?

Ulcerative Colitis (UC) is a form of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) that affects the large intestine mostly but can spread to other areas of the body, I’ve never had it spread beyond my colon, luckily! The symptoms of UC are constant bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping of varying degrees of pain, chronic inflammation and open sores (ulcers) in the colon, excess smelly gas, fever, vomiting and constant tiredness. There is varying severities to the illness and I’m familier with all four. The varying severities are (from Wikipedia):

(1) Mild disease correlates with fewer than four stools daily, with or without blood, no systemic signs of toxicity, and a normal erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR). There may be mild abdominal pain or cramping. Patients may believe they are constipated when in fact they are experiencing rectal tenesmus, which is a constant feeling of the need to empty the bowel accompanied by involuntary straining efforts, pain, and cramping with little or no fecal output. Rectal pain is uncommon.

With this you think you just have really bad wind or a touch of Irritable bowel. You back will ache. Can be uncomfortable and inconvenient.

(2) Moderate disease correlates with more than four stools daily, but with minimal signs of toxicity. Patients may display anemia (not requiring transfusions), moderate abdominal pain, and low-grade fever, 38 to 39 °C (99.5 to 102.2 °F).

This is tolerable but can get very painful at times, you’ll feel tired a lot because of all the blood you’re losing. You’ll possibly lose your appetite. You may get a fever, but only light… if any at all. Your back and abdomen will ache because of constant straining.

(3) Severe disease, correlates with more than six bloody stools a day, and evidence of toxicity as demonstrated by fever, tachycardia, anemia or an elevated ESR.

I’ve spent most of my UC time in this zone, over a year and half! The fever will become more stronger. You’ll feel really tired and lose more blood, lose your appetite (it’s not unusual to still have one), vomit and have bad pain in your abdomen that requires strong pain killers. You’ll spend a lot of time on the toilet and your social life will be none existent.

(4) Fulminant disease correlates with more than ten bowel movements daily, continuous bleeding, toxicity, abdominal tenderness and distension, blood transfusion requirement and colonic dilation (expansion). Patients in this category may have inflammation extending beyond just the mucosal layer, causing impaired colonic motility and leading to toxic megacolon. If the serous membrane is involved, colonic perforation may ensue. Unless treated, fulminant disease will soon lead to death.

This is bad! I’ve touched this zone and it isn’t nice. My average bowel movements some days were twelve, but I never stayed in the zone long enough to experience the full force of this zone! You’ll not sleep even though you’re really tired, you wont want to eat, you’ll vomit and the fever will be in full force. It’s quite painful too, almost constant.

                                                                                Extent Of Involvement

Ulcerative colitis is normally continuous from the rectum up the colon. The disease is classified by the extent of involvement, depending on how far up the colon the disease extends:

Distal colitis: Potentially treatable with enemas.

Proctitis: Involvement limited to the rectum.

Proctosigmoiditis: Involvement of the rectosigmoid colon, the portion of the colon adjacent to the rectum.

Left-sided colitis: Involvement of the descending colon, which runs along the patient’s left side, up to the splenic flexure and the beginning of the transverse colon.

Extensive colitis: inflammation extending beyond the reach of enemas.

Pancolitis: Involvement of the entire colon, extending from the rectum to the cecum, beyond which the small intestine begins. I only ever had this type, if you got any of the others… you got a better deal than me! You can feel it mostly in the left side and under you navel near the pubic bone. You can however feel it on the right when you go to the toilet sometimes.

                                                                                    What Causes UC?

No one really knows what causes UC, there are many theories but so far none of them have been proved. Here are some theories that are thought to be causes; heredity, genetic factors, environmental factors and disturbances of the immune system. It is thought that an abnormal immune system is the chief cause of this. When I say “abnormal immune system” I mean this (from Wikipedia):

1. Disturbance of immune system: Some experts believe that there may be a defect in one’s immune system responsible for ongoing inflammation in the intestinal wall. The disturbance is thought to be either of two.

1B. Allergy: Some studies suggest that Ulcerative colitis is a form of exaggerated allergic response to certain food or to the presence of some microorganisms present in the intestine.

1a. Autoimmunity: Autoimmunity simply means allergy to oneself. Most recent research indicate that ulcerative colitis can be a form of autoimmune disease in which body’s defense system starts attacking the body’s own organs and tissues. One amongst them being large intestine.

There’s also the Hereditary and Genetic factors:

2. Genetics:  Current research suggests that certain genetic factors may increase the likelihood of a person having Ulcerative colitis.

3.  Hereditary factors:  If any of your immediate family members has ulcerative colitis, then your chances of having the disease increases.

My personal view of the allergy idea is this, I have never been allergic to any types of food or medicine! I did however have an allergic reaction when I was 9 or 10. I still have no idea what caused that to this day, I was playing in sand and my hand swelled up. There was a bee flying away at the time, but I’ve been stung off bees and wasps before and never had such a reaction. So that ideas out. There’s the autoimmunity, er… it’s possible! But even after people have their colon removed they can still suffer with UC. As for genetics and hereditary, well my Grandmother’s niece is the only person I know of in the family to have had UC, and she only had it for a short time, she was confined to hospital for two weeks for bed and bowel rest. She never had it after that. I did however find something interesting about people who have UC’s ancestry. It’s thought that UC occurs in more cases of people who are Ashkenazi Jews or descendents of Ashkenazi Jews. Ashkenazi Jews had been settled in Northern Europe since the early 900′s and then came to England during the Norman Conquest before their expulsion in 1290. So it is possible I have some Jewish ancestry that causes this, then again I have a friend on-line that has UC and she’s east asian in decent! Maybe we’re just unfortunate to have random mutations then… who knows?

I came across something interesting not long after I was diagnosed with the UC. I read that antibiotics may cause and does make UC worse. Well, before I got the UC I was taking a course of antibiotics called ‘Erythromycin’ for acne I had. I had been on them for around a year and a half (maybe longer), before that I used a topical solution for my acne that didn’t have much effect. The particular acne treatment that is said to cause this, Roaccutane, is not what I was taking before the UC started. I did however take Roaccutane after the UC to get rid of the extremely bad acne the UC medication had caused, and the UC was still pretty well controlled.

                                                      Cure And Medication For Ulcerative Colitis

There is no known cure for you UC, though having the colon/large intestine itself removed is considered a cure by many. The procedure, a Colectomy (surgical removal of all or part of the colon), is only considered if the patient is not responding to medication, is suffering constant internal hemorrhaging, has Toxic megacolon (a extremely  diolated and distended colon) or there is a cancer present caused by the UC. Even if the colectomy is carried out it is not a guarantee that the UC will be cured. Some people have reported UC present in the remaining colon (if any) and in the stoma or new pouch made from the lower intestine after the stoma has been reversed. I wouldn’t personally want this done unless my life, or quality of life depended on it.

There are three main types of medications, these are: (from Wikipedia):

Aminosalicylates: These drugs, which can be given either orally or rectally, interfere with the body’s ability to control inflammation. They are effective in treating mild-to-moderate episodes of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, as well as preventing relapses and maintaining remission.

I have and still do take these. Ever since I developed UC I’ve been taking Mesalazine. I take two tablets three times a day. It’s used in the cases of mild to moderate UC, which explains why it didn’t do nothing for me at the worse times.

Corticosteroids: The main use of corticosteroid medicines is to reduce inflammation. Corticosteroid medicines are widely used for a large number of different conditions, including osteoarthritis, asthma, cystic fibrosis, pancreatitis and multiple sclerosis and skin disorders.

I took Prednisolone Suppositories for a time, but they did nothing for me. I used to take 3 to 4 a day. I also did and still do take a Predfoam enema, I take it twice a day. The thing is it’s only used for people with left-sided colitis, my whole colon was affected by the UC (pan colitis). Which explains why it didn’t work in the early days of my UC..

Immunosuppressive drugs: Are drugs that inhibit or prevent activity of the immune system. They are used in immunosuppressive therapy to Prevent the rejection of transplanted organs and tissues and Treat autoimmune diseases or diseases that are most likely of autoimmune origin like, Crohn’s disease and Ulcerative Colitis!

I’ve never had any of these yet, they are only used when the UC is very bad, and as you’d expect they suppress the immune system, which can be dangerous because you can die by a simple cold.

Biolgical Treatment: This involves the use of medication that is tailored to specifically target an immune or genetic cause of a disease. Even for diseases of unknown cause, molecules that are involved in the disease process have been identified, and can be targeted for biological therapy; many of these molecules, which are mainly cytokines, are directly involved in the immune system.

This treatment is still experimental, there is only one that actually is for use! I don’t think I’ll be taking this any time soon as some of the side effects include blood loss and even cancers!

                                                                    Alternative Treatments And Diets

There is also herbal and natural help in the form of fish oils, Aloe Vera, Chamomile or peppermint tea, Boswellia (Frankincense) in tablet form, there are a few others. They all do help to a degree, but I don’t think they’re are an option for me really, but that doesn’t mean they are not worth checking out. There is a diet called ‘The Specific Carbohydrate Diet’, that is said to help and pretty much stop UC in its tracks. The diet basically says you can’t have complex carbohydrates, refined sugars and lactose (milk) over a certain amount. It’s basically a diet that denies you all our modern foods, sort of athrow back to the days before we had refined foods and added bits and bobs. The lady who made this diet says the reason we have IBD’s is because of our modern diets filled with unnatural foods that are hard to digest and help bad bacteria to flourish which then cause the inflammation in IBD’s. But I think if that was the case why doesn’t the whole of the population suffer with it? I don’t think a bad diet alone is wholly to blame. Genetics may play a part. But the diet does work, my on-line friend with UC has been on the diet for three years or so and it has been a benefit for her, the only draw back on it is it can be very bland and boring at times. I don’t think the diet by itself would get rid of UC, my friend takes it in conjunction with her medication and she still never reaches 100%, but hey, 80 or 90% is better than nothing and it’s certainly better than nothing at all or being dead.

                                                                   Side Effects Of Ulcerative Colitis

You may not want to hear this but suffering from Ulcerative Colitis brings other undesirable effects other than the illness and the symptoms it brings. There’s the side effects the medication brings (depending on which medication you’re taking), there’s hair loss, face swelling, acne, wind, dizziness and mouth ulcers. This doesn’t happen to everyone. To be honest the only side effect you need to look out for is hair loss and face swelling. There’s also an increased chance of cancer of the colon after ten years if you suffer from left-sided colitis, extensive colitis or pan colitis. So you will be checked for cancer via screening by colonoscopies (a camera put in to the colon) eight years after you first developed the disease. But not to worry if you have either of the above, most people with UC who discover cancer can have it removed or treated successfully!

UC also has effects on your social and private life. If you had an active life before you developed it, you’ll have to put it on hold till you get better. There’s not a lot of chance you can go out and what you did before, especially if you used to drink as that can make UC worse! Even if you didn’t drink you wont be leading a normal private life for at least six months! But even if you have it for six months you start to think if you’ll get better or whether you can actually have a normal relation ship with someone again. I don’t know about that as I’ve not had a relationship since I got my UC, it’s something I still wonder about, but I know of some people who are in relationships and their UC is/was and sometimes is worse than mine, so it’s possible!

There’s jobs too! You may have to change your job if it is a stressful one, stress sets of UC. If you can afford to change jobs you may want to consider having your colon taken out. The same goes for quality of life, if you find the UC isn’t clearing up and the medication isn’t working you may want to consider that too!

Brown A Hero?

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on October 18, 2008

I was watching ‘Have I Got News For you’ on Friday evening, and something Ian Hislop said echoed what I’ve been thinking since Gordon Brown bailed out the eight large banks with £500 billion! And that was… it is partially HIS fault!
 
All this nonsense about him being “Super Gord” and the “saviour” of the west because of the way he handled the economic meltdown is media crap! Media crap I bet number 10 welcomes! Gordon Brown was Chancellor of the Exchequer for over ten years and never did anything about the Deregulation mess Margaret Thatcher helped make in the 80’s! By the way, those people who advocated Free Market Capitalism, swivel on it you greedy bastards! The market will correct itself? Funny that, the tax payer seems to be correcting it, again! Anyway, back to the present, or eleven years ago to be precise. When Labour came to power and all the flag waving had stopped, Brown and Blair didn’t do anything to put some regulation in place in the city! Why? Well they were riding a positive economic up turn, they didn’t want to put regulation in place and bring down the stock value. They were also scared London would lose its place as the economic capital of the world if they started putting an end to their risky ventures and dodgy deals. I also wouldn’t be surprised if some blokes from the city were putting pretty large donations in the Labour party’s coffers.
 
I don’t know about you but this is just a smack in the face! It’s like thanking a man for saving you from a house fire when he was the one who set fire to it in the first place. I’m not saying he’s totally to blame, it would be wrong of me to leave the others out. I’m laying the blame at the door of Tony Blair, the Labour party and the bankers in the UK and the US! They’re all to blame and not one of them deserves an ounce of gratitude from any of us. They are the people who let this happen, they let it happen because they were to spineless and greedy to rectify the deregulation problem because it was making the bankers money and keeping the politicians elected.
 
You know what, I think a little blame has to go at the feet of the electorate to for not being wise enough to see this happening. You were all mad as hell in the 80’s when the deregulation happened and the rich got richer and you got sweet fa! But then when things started looking up you all cracked on with it and conveniently forgot about the ‘greed is good culture’ that was still running the economy! Well now it’s come back and bit you on the arse and the man who had the power to stop it all but let it happen is now proclaimed your saviour! Oh happy day!

You Make Me Wanna…

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on October 12, 2008

Over the past couple of months you’ll notice I haven’t blogged anywhere near as much as I used to. The reason for this is because I’ve been ill and also when I find myself in state to write it depresses me. Mostly because anything I say wont solve the problem. There’s also the topics in themself, they depress me so much I don’t even read the papers or watch the news much anymore, I just don’t want to know or think about it because NOTHING will ever be done to solve them due to a ill-informed, uneducated electorate and lack of political will and spine!
 
There’s not only the political side of this, there’s the social/human side too! I’ve said a few times I don’t like or trust a lot of people, I pretty much don’t like a lot of the human race, you could call me Misanthropic, actually!
 
I see their nature, greedy, selfish, hateful, easily lead, unthinking (in a lot of cases), arrogant, devious and lying. I could go on but I wont. Because of this and our society in general which is materialistic, hollow and selfish in nature, I feel pretty isolated from everything. I know most of you are going to say: “Not everyone is like that Phil! You can’t paint everyone with the same brush”. I know that! But I can really tell what type of person someone is just by talking to them for a few minutes, and I don’t like what I see!
 
Anyway, what does all this have to do with blogging? Well, instead of writing a full blog I just put down a few sentences for how I felt at the time. It was easier for me that way. I still aint finished with this, I’ll be adding to it in the future. You’re all welcome to guess what news story or social/human activity caused any particular sentence.
 

You make me wanna…

(1) Take a Stanley knife to my face and scar it to make it unacceptable in a world where you have to be flawless and because your fake hollow beautiful face packed with too much make up and plastic surgery makes me sick!

(2) Shave my head because all your long floppy emo quifs, curly rocka mops and hip-hop brades and styles are fucking manicured and all the same! You aint individuals when you all look the same you stupid cunts!

(3) Slap the stupid, lying, corrupt, fake smilin’, bent faces of all politicians and slit their throats because they’re parasites and murderers!

(4) Remove the clothes of people who take pride and derive their personality from material possessions and leave them with zero substance!

(5) Burn the whole musical back catalogue of human history because you ALL rely on it too much!

(6) Take all BNP supporters back to 1945 Germany and let them see the rotting, gassed, hung and shot jews, gays, lesbians and Prisoners of war corpses to show them the dangers of what people peddling National Socialism can do and what they’re all about! In fact I’ll do the same for ALL political and religious ideologies!

(7) Rob the bank of England and use the loot as toilet paper because money means so much to you!

(8) Dance, piss and shit on Maggie Thatcher while she’s alive because dancin’, pissing and shitting on her grave when she’s dead aint good enough!

(9) Open up all jails… because if a politician can get away with murder and embezzlement then so can everyone else!

(10) Dig up Khalid Abdul Muhammad’s remains and kill him again because he didn’t die hard enough the first time around!

(11) Father as many children to women of different ethnic backgrounds as I can because you’re “racial” ideals are nonsensical!

(12) Break ALL your religious laws and insult your prophets, saviours and ideologies because my freedom is more important than your faith!

(13) Infect the Pope and all others who deem condoms/contraceptives a sin with AIDS/HIV with no chance of treatment and see how they take solace with just a Bible. Oh well… at least you’ll die Christians!!!!

(14) Wank, shit and piss on the Koran because, again, my freedom matters more than your faith!

(15) Want to destroy, fuck and kill in a Nihilistic orgy the likes the world has never seen!

(16) Deny the holocaust ever happened just because I CAN!

(17) Stick a used tampon up Tracy Emin’s nose and call it “art” instead of assault!

(18) Get all the corrupt businessmen that sell sub prime mortgages and dabble in the stock market and take ALL their earnings honest or not and give them to the people they helped make poor! Let them see how they feel being completely destitute!

Stop Sharia Law being used in the UK!

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on October 2, 2008

If you’re familiar with Islam you’ll be familiar with their stone age law system called “Sharia Law”.

This law is patriarchal (male dominated) in nature. It practically makes rape in muslim countries impossible to prove by having to have four witnesses to have been there to see it… all male! There’s not just that, female adulterers are stoned to death, young children married off to older men, women allowed to be hit with sticks to keep them in-line. Female genital mutilation. This is just the tip of the iceberg, many places on the net will say the laws are taken out of context, well… they are not! This does happen in muslim countries and I do not want it happening here in any watered down form.

UK law my not be perfect, but it is far superior to Islamic law. The Politically Correct brigade and politicians will try to put a positive spin on Sharia law because they only care about their popularity and not being perceived as “racist”, they don’t care if ours or anyone else’s rights and values are traded for a few popularity points in the poles or for a few votes from minorities.
 
The Government says Sharia law will only extend to family law, finance and business in the muslim community. Firstly, in financial settlements in Islam the females of any party/family get less than the males of the party/family. So the women’s rights are being over looked because Sharia law is biased towards men.
 

In family law, Muslim women will be subjected to more domestic horrors as divorce is looked upon as the last resort, they will try to fix the problem with counseling and such first. Most proponents of this system will say that most couples never go back to the court afterwards, which shows the success. I have a different idea, maybe it’s because she was forced or talked out of not going back or making another application? I don’t care if there was a 100% success rate with these councilors, UK law is fairer and not biased. 

This is the UK. Our ancestors fought and died to keep our rights and laws, not give them away to appease minorities. There’s shouldn’t be a two tier legal system in the UK. If you come to the UK you live by UK law, not the other way around. You may think this does not concern you as it only affects Muslims, but how long before the influence of Sharia law grows as the Muslim population grows and more Muslims enter Parliament? Yeh, it’s out-there, but I don’t like the idea of anyone in the UK giving up their rights in such a backwards, stone age judicial system, even if it’s in a limited form. 

Future projections aside, there should not be two or more legal systems in the UK, especially when one denies women their rights!
 
Let’s stop this madness now before the likes of the BNP take it upon themselves and make things worse. Let’s face it, the BNP are just as much a danger to our freedoms and rights as Sharia law and the idiots that advocate it are.
 
So sign the petition below and put and end to this stupidity.
