Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE abusively intimidates a patient with threats

Above are links to my blog at where I disucss a variety of serious problems at Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE in Phnom Penh, Cambodia where Dr. Gerlinda Lucas has attempted to intimidate me and my very sick friend by theatening to discontinue free life-saving treatment as retribution for me making completely reasonable and valid compalints about quality of healthcare issues at the hospital. Issues like doctors being rude and uncooperative and not being willing to even listen to critical information about signs and symptoms of the patient that I have observed as the patient's primary caregiver.

The hospital has refused to cooperate with me in the best interests of the patient and has reiterated their unethical threats over aperiod of more than a year.

Back in San Francisco

Hoo boy. I'm back. After 18 months of backpacking around SE Asia its a bit of an adjustment to return to a place and find that you've changed significantly and that it hasn't.


The air is too dry and its giving me chapped lips and very dry skin, so now I'm a big consumer of skin lotion and lip balm.

The food is spiced strangely, the portions are too big and the ration of meat to vegetables is way too high.

Not so surprisingly, everything is very expensive.

Everyone seems to be quite locked-in to their own groove in life.


I feel more relaxed, calm and centered. I have a killer suntan and I'm more fit and toned, with improvd posture.

I certainly feel less attached to things and more in touch with my feelings.
