Even Elementary’s take on Watson is more complex and interesting. The Sherlock version is perfectly acceptable: Freeman is well cast, and does a fine job of switching between outrage, awkward double takes, and astonishment. But it was established in the first episode that Watson’s war experience (he served as an army doctor in Afghanistan) had deeply affected him, and this has been largely forgotten, outside of the occasional tossed-off bit of dialogue. Though he’s given the dignity of outside work and occasional love interests, Watson’s main job is to react to Sherlock. As Joan Watson, on the other hand, Lucy Liu gives life to one of the stronger female roles on network television, a former surgeon turned sober companion who first meets Sherlock when his father hires her to help him go (and stay) drug-free. Over the course of the first season, Watson helped bring balance and perspective into Holmes’s world, while he, in turn, offered her a glimpse of the challenges and gratification of investigative work. It’s an equal partnership that allows Watson agency and standing without diminishing Holmes’ gifts.
This Doctor Says He Can Cure Heroin Addicts by Putting Them in a Coma
Muhammad had many good reasons for being pissed off. He was far from home, his arm was bleeding, and he’d recently come out of a coma. The stranger asking about his heroin addiction probably didn’t help. But he had already tried drug clinics in France, Spain, Italy, and Turkey, and none of them had worked. He’d come to Kyrgyzstan because he thought it was his last chance.
He’d traveled from Algiers based on the reputation of the Nazaraliev Medical Center, a private clinic near Bishkek. The center claims that 80 percent of its patients stay drug free for at least a year after receiving treatment there. Many of those it treats come from Russia or the former Soviet Union, but there’s no shortage of domestic customers. Heroin use has drastically increased in Kyrgyzstan over the last decade. The last official estimate, in 2006, put the number of intravenous drug users in the country at 26,000. According to Dr. Alexander Zelichenko, Director of the Central Asian Center on Drug Policy, there may now be around 100,000 users in a country with a population just below 5.6 million.
Ok. Let’s begin….for my new followers who may not know my human experience allow me to give an update.
My story like many has been an entire evolutionary experience to become who I am today. WISER!
In 2010 I was 222lbs overweight, drug and alcohol abuser and had no clue what peace and happiness was. I thought peace and happiness came from materialistic things, people and yes, I thought if I had the body of my dreams I would be satisfied.
Tisk Tisk for me thinking that….
The journey began with my first drastic weight loss in 2010 were I went from 222lbs to 155lbs in 9 months. Whoa! I was not happy! Yes. The weight was off but internally I was not at peace.
Something was missing. …
The weight creeped back up.
By 2012 I had been juggling to stay healthy and drug free. By 2013 when I moved away to Florida. My weight got back up to 215lbs and I started using again…..
Dang! Did I give up? Yep!
Did I find myself? Yep! Sure did.
I found peace by going WITHIN! I started to understand that the perfect body, material things and people didn’t control my peace. I DO!
My body is my body. As they say, I am a spiritual being having a human experience.
If having the “perfect shape” your goal please think again…
It’s about the Mind.Body&Spirit. Not just body guys.
100% of your life’s journey is MENTAL!
THANKS FOR READING MY HUMAN EXPERIENCE.
