Fear

So many women understand the concept of what is happening in the mesh world and they have shared their concerns that something may happen to my daughter and I. It is because of their worries that I am addressing this, this morning.

Kim and I are not foolish nor unaware that something ‘could’ happen. But this blog reaches thousands and I am sure over the four years lawyers and doctors read it, besides all the sick women. So you are all witnesses to what is happening and if nothing goes up here or on my daughter’s Stop Mesh site for several days, then I hope someone will contact the District Attorney’s office in Houston and make them aware of this blog.

I am completely aware that this has caused an explosion of emotion between women. I am also aware that I will be left standing alone. But regardless sometimes in life you have to do the right thing and for me this IS the right thing to do.

Yes it will and it has cost me and I have been slammed by ridiculous suppositions such as bribery, slander and extortion. Well, if stating the truth that there are lawyers or people who will speak out at an upcoming tort convention is libelous, it is ridiculous. Or that these people are in a closed support group run by Jane that is ridiculous too. There is proof. I personally believe a women’s mesh injury support group is no place for lawyers. You may have another opinion and that is your right.

I told Estelle that I would not use her name on the blog again, but even though my daughter has corresponded with her, sharing the discrepancies that were pointed out to her by other women, Estelle is sharing my email to her with everyone she can think of including women who were very special to me.

Someone else told me in public that a woman who SAID she is a lawyer contacted her about Jane Akre using a video that some of us were in, as something that Jane used for profiting from mesh injured women’s cases. So this morning I am going to address that so that you all know what is going on.

I have not been contacted by anyone about this video but if I had been this is what I would have done. Anyone can say anything, but if they are a lawyer there will be proof. A name and a law firm. If it is by phone, I would asked for that proof, in fact the law firm would be on my telephone I.D. Then I would Google the company and IN WRITING I would ask for the person to explain themselves as to exactly what they want. I would not do any of this over the phone. I hope I now have made this clear.

Kim and I are not a part of any investigation against Jane and if there is, it is not because of us. It is because women were upset when she asked on the Medical Mesh News Desk support group, for their details including their lawyers. I know that many women immediately contacted their lawyers. What happened after that is none of my business because it is attorney/client privilege. I did not contact my lawyer because they know Jane Akre.

I did not want to be part of any video that I felt was about mesh companies and I have stated why, many times on this blog. I pulled out of the documentary for that reason and that reason alone. Others may not share that opinion and they have a right to do so.

Everything that I have shared here or my daughter has shared on her site came about because mesh injured women have to right to know or the right to ignore. I personally do not believe any political action group should be involved with my mesh case and that is the feeling of many other women. It is a personal opinion and it was my right to know about and choose. How many women even knew that there was any involvement with such an organization before we broke the news? If you do not want to know then please do not read any of it. That is also your right.

    Linda , I want to know more about what jane did to you. I have got e mail from women saying they were messed up too with mesh, that have a web site, I GOT SO ANGRY, when i replied to their e mail and found they posted the email, on their web site, jane akre also was making comments. What is going on? I EVEN E MAILED BACK BUT THEY DID NOT ANSWER MY QUESTIONS, i asked if they were with attorney office or doctor office . BECAUSE OF THE EMAIL AND WHAT WAS ADVERTISED IN THEM, jane has been saying things like I WAS VULGAR TO OTHER WOMEN, ON HER WEB SITE, i thought if these women are genuine, I KNOW A TALK RADIO SHOW, THAT THEY CAN SPEAK OUT FOR 2 MINUTES, , EVERY MORNING AND EVEN TWICE A DAY, NO COMMENTS HAVE BEEN MADE SINCE. LINDA i am too old to be vulgar with anyone but would not be vulgar , like all women with mesh has posted in anger we have all used the d word and some others not vulgar at all. something is most definitely wrong. i told 1 woman asking about raz, to come to you, that you could probably answer all her questions, since I had not got to him, but told her what I knew and read about him ultra sound and more, to my shock on their web site , facebook, they hasd posted the emails they sent me via , e mail, I GOT PLENTY MAD AND ASKED WHAT IN THE HELL WAS GOING ON. AND MORE. jane is not giving any more info about courts that she in the beginning was daily telling us and talking, and then , nothing, I HAVE EVEN SUPPORTED HER, IN MONEY THAT WAS HARD FOR ME TO GIVE, she told me she couldn’t go on with out money , it wasn’t much, but still gave money. but she still has stopped giving info, about courts, WHY?

      Pam, I have been trying to do research to help a few women and I have not got back to this because helping women is much more important right now. I still don’t understand where other women are factoring in to all of this and why the secret groups. I was put on one of them once, but when I began helping women I was removed. That did not make any sense. Jane was also on it and I doubt is she would be removed. I never understood that if Jane is a free lance reporter then why is she not writing about other medical things, not just about products that injure. To me this suggests she works for injury lawyers not a free lance reporter. I do not know why a non mesh injured woman would ask for money from those who are. I know what this costs all women who had mesh in their bodies. Many lost careers. I do not know why she chooses to give out information from some courts and not on all of these cases, but is she is free lance as she says, where does she get all her court information. I wonder if it is from the lawyers she works for.
      I like other women were used by me sharing my story for what I thought would be the greatest cause ever. To let non mesh injured women know what mesh can do to a woman’s body and how it changes your life in the worst way. However when I asked her any questions I never got an answer. I began being very suspicious several months ago when she seemed more interested in J & J only. I also was more suspicious when a woman was posting openly on the MMND support group selling her loans. Over three days I tagged Jane and asked why this woman was there. Finally after three days she removed the entire post. A couple of days later a woman by the name of Barbara Martin reposted and said she did not know why women were mad at her because Jane had asked her to be there. That post went down quickly. I wanted to know why a woman selling loans was openly selling on her support group because I do not believe that is what support groups are for. Women had sent me notes telling me how upset they were over seeing this woman doing this and Jane never took her off. I then wrote a blog about loan sharks and posted it there.
      I do not know anything about Jane’s personal finances and it is not my business, but one time she posted on there that all the women should write to their lawyers and ask them to give donations to her. That was highly suspicious. The only thing that makes any sense is that there will be a pay off when these cases close and then it will be worthwhile to her and that is why she does the things she does. Women were asking my daughter to dig into it but Kim just outright asked her thinking that a direct and honest approach was better and Jane would deny it if it was not true. She never denied it but instead told her she was out of line and kicked her off the support group, blocked her and then she wound up closing the group to public view. Why would she do all this? Only she knows. I cannot help but give women the truth because everyone else covers it up. But asking her questions never works because she never answers. That seems more like a lawyer strategy, not a woman who is helping other women get the word out.
      This was the blog I wrote after that woman posted selling her wares. http://meshangelnetwork.com/2014/05/loan-sharks-snake-oil/

    linda, Jane befriended me and called me a few times, when I told her what hell I was being put through by attorneys, she called and said they want you to kiss up and used the words , suck up too. I RESPONDED i do not kiss up or suck up to anyone, I STAND ONLY ON TRUTH OF WHAT i AM GOING THROUGH. I DO NOT USE MY REAL NAME, but you know my real name too.

    I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY ANY WOMAN MESH DAMAGED HAS TO BE GAGGED BY COURTS, (now I know why they did it), THEY KNEW WOMEN DAMAGED BY MESH, WAS GOING TO BE TREATED AND LIED TO BY DOCTORS) NO INFORMATION, TOLD TO STAY OFF INTERNET . THE NEWS MEDIA , FDA, ALSO WOULD NOT SEND THE BLAST TO WARN WOMEN.
    I have noticed those attorneys , that have came on to jane internet site, mark an attorney, connected with motley and rice , davis & crump, that took cases purposely knowing that cases that would never see justice, used women to take their stories, and send them to boston scientific state of mass. buying time as stories told they used these women, and had people like jada , or jade that a woman called kitty told me I was paranoid, I TOLD HER TO GO TO HELL. THIS WAS SHOCKING TO SEE WHAT JANE AND THOSE WERE POSTING, i even tried to use some humor, and thought no something is most definitely wrong here.
    before i STARTED SEEING, THE POSTS THAT WAS TRULY FROM ATTORNEYS AND JANE DOCTORS, AS SHE SPOKE OF HAVING DINNER WITH 1. WHEN i TOLD ABOUT WHAT 1 DOCTOR DID TO ME, THAT WAS PRAISED, (NOT DR. RAZ. SHE ON THE PHONE TOLD ME THAT HIS BED SIDE MANNER WAS NOT GOOD, BUT SAID NOT TO SAY SHE DSAID IT, SHE SAID SHE HAD HEARD OF HIM. THEN WHEN i condemn him and even sent voice message , and let her hear what he said to me, she turned on me. taking SOME OF my posts off, and now so evil I HAVE ASKED HER TO REMOVE ALL MY COMMENTS, SHE REFUSES TO RESPOND,
    I SENT HER MONEY, i thought she was for women, but started to notice her focus was more to J& J and started to se through her evil ways , and so called groups. linda, this is a grave wrong to some women severely damaged by mesh for life. I ALSO HAVE SEEN DISTORTED TRUTH, NOT TRUTH WROTE IN BOOKS, i hate distorted truth, it is like propaganda , that jane says she fights against, she is lieing, to women, why> taking money from women and giving it to who, she says now she cannot get to courts as she was in the beginning. and she did call my attorneys, and things got much worse after that, I DO NOT HEAR FROM THEM , I WAS DROPPED AT 1 TIME. AND WENT THROUGH MORE HELL, JANE KNOWS THIS, AND LOOK HOW AND WHO SHE LETS ON HER WEB SITE, SHE IS DIRTY AND EVIL TO WOMEN TRULY DAMAGED BY MESH. MOTLEY AND RICE AND SOME MORE ATTORNEYS , ARE NOT REPRESENTING WOMEN AND NEVER SHOULD CASES WITH BOSTON SCIENTIfiC SHOULD HAVE EVER BEEN ALLOWED TO GO TO THE STATE OF MASS, WHERE THEY BUY OFF PEOPLE TO COVER FOR THEM, IN CAMPAIGNS AND MORE, , I HAVE SEEN THIS KIND OF EVIL AND CORRUPTION TOO MANY TIMES. I AM NOT PARANOID, AS KITTY SAID, LIKE SOME DOCTORS TOLD WOMEN THAT MESH SUFFERING WAS ALL IN THEIR MINDS, IT WAS NOT THE MESH. i am not the best educated person I know, but neither am I blind now to what jane has done to some women truly damaged and suffer from mesh implant. I TRIED TO WALK NOT EVEN A MILE TO VOTE, THINGS HAVE GOT THAT HARD, that walk, pains started shooting in lower part down through as it does , severely. I i made it back home, but this is what mesh does to women, back and front areas, if I stand to long, sit too long, from cramps to somtimes pain great and severe, knowing mesh is moving, it seems the more you move around, it moves, cutting through, it hurts. THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE INVOLVED THAT MADE SO MUCH MONEY, HAVE NO CONSCIOUS, , JANE WITH THEM. LIFE TIME GUINEA PIGS IS WHAT WE ARE, NEEDING MEDS AND DOCTORS AND THESE THAT DID THIS AND LIED , KNOW IT.
