Kidney Stones: You won't believe this story--but read it anyway

Act I, Scene l:

In the first week of May I went to the Aventura Hospital and Medical Center Emergency Room with one of my ‘to be expected’ kidney stone attacks. I went in at 11:00 o’clock in the morning and came out around 5:00 o’clock in the afternoon. The urologist who conveniently had an office next door to the hospital tried to convince me to have two surgeries the next day—to stay in the hospital overnight—not leave—he was so adamant that you would have thought I was being imprisoned, because that’s what this doctor recommended.

I was given two doses of heavy medication—the usual procedure to see if the dilation of the entire body would permit me ‘to pass the stone’ in urological lingo. The stone was gone somewhere between 11 and 5. I was probed and specialists analyzed me, a radiologist took a couple of pictures—the entire time the attending doctors and nurses pressured me to stay in the hospital.

Finally I literally demanded to be released from the Emergency Room. It took an Act of God and an Oscar-worthy, hope-beyond-hope sweet Jesus mellifluous Southern Baptist mannered acting job to get them to sign me out. (“Let me outta this &^%$%^&^ hell hole or I will take these cordoned curtains and enshroud you lily-livered sorry excuse for doctors like you were that scrawny King Tut mummy wannabe.”)

Fade to black, as the screenplay says…

Act I, Scene 2. Dateline July 11, 2008, Sedona.

I got a Patient Resolution Statement of Charges today, administered by National Patient Account Services from Louisville, Kentucky (with a Post Office Box, no less) that said that the six hours for my trauma treatment –I was laying on the bed for four hours of the six, unattended—came to $9, 494.00. You are reading that right. $9,494.00!!!!!!!!!!

I have Medicare like everybody else in the Land of the Red, White and Blue Democracy over 65 years of age does, but what if I had one of the worthless policies that all of you under 65 years of age do? The Estimated Patient Balance: $00.00. So what! I am madder than my Aunt Mary’s wet hen (Southerners, do we have our own language, or what?) because this over-priced, gouging cost of medical care gets dumped on the broken back of tax payers.

The next time your congressman asks for your opinion about Universal Medical Care, write him or her demanding that there be limits on what hospitals and doctors can charge. Can you imagine what the bill would have been had I stayed overnight and gone through two surgeries? Maybe $200,000—and Greedy Guts will keep getting away with this until we voters who pay for these extravagances rise up and say like that character from the movie NETWORK, “We’re not going to take this sh-- anymore!”

As Nell Carter used to say, “Gimme a break!”



He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
