Theft: How safe are you?
Happy Woman special report.
Fiona was saved, but
how safe are you?
Tips to protect your
- If you are going alone to
a bar and a stranger buys you a drink, ask the bartender
to take a sip. If the bartender passes out--do not finish
- If the bartender refuses to
test your drink, handcuff yourself to the bar rail. Chances
are the thieves will not remove your kidneys in a public
place without fear of being spotted.
- Before you take a sip of the
drink mention very casually "I really shouldn't
drink as I don't have any kidneys" If the guy loses
interest in you immediately, congratulate yourself on
- Be suspicious of a gent carrying
a medical bag if he isn't a doctor.
How do I know if
my kidney's have been stolen? Top signs to look for:
- You may feel the need to urinate
more often or less often.
- Loss of appetite or experience
nausea and vomiting.
- Swelling of your hands or
feet or numbness.
- Drowsiness, trouble concentrating.
- If you ever awakened in an
unfamiliar hotel room in a bathtub filled with ice.
- If you have a tube running
out of your back and/or an ugly ragged scar near the
middle of your back just below the rib cage.
As with everything an ounce of prevention
is worth a pound of cure. You are the most important person
you know and your kidneys belong to you and you alone.
