Don’t be Stupid
Whenever I sit in a Dentist’s Chair I am Traumatized from bad Experiences that I had earlier in Life. When I was Eleven years old a Dentist with very little Experience, broke a Tooth during Extraction. With very little Novocaine he proceeded to dig it out. At Seventeen I sat in a Dentist’s Chair Two P.M. in the Afternoon. The smell of Gin was staggering, Pundits meant. Drunk as a Skunk he gave me Six shots of Novocaine and about Twelve blast of Gas. Too Drunk to realize that the Tooth was Abscessed and if I was Totally Sedated, I would still feel the Pain. I slapped his Hand away, jumped out of the Chair and ran to the Emergency Room. They gave me Antibiotics and sent me Home to return when the Abscess subsidies. They also told me that with the amount of Sedation, I could have Died, or ran over by a Car on my way to the E.R.
Even with my Great Fears, I know that you can avoid sitting in that Chair for so long, without putting your Health at Risk. So there you have it, the Motivation for this Blog. Putting your Health and others at Risk. Today marks the Anniversary of me wearing a Mask in the Courthouse for One solid year, with no Deviation. Longer than One Month before the C.D.C. recommend wearing One. People would get on the Elevator looking at me like I was an absolute Idiot. Since March Fourteen the Building has been Inundated with numerous cases, Fogged and Sanitized regularly. Many of my Coworkers contracted the Virus and brought it Home. Many of thei’r loved ones will never be the same, some have Died. With pre-existing conditions, I was bent on not getting the Virus. The only Room in the Courthouse that I took my Mask off, was Disinfected every time, prior to me removing my Mask. C.O.P.D. and early Emphysema, I kept my Mask on for Eight Hours per Day, never removing it as long as I was in the Building. Today I got my Second Vaccine. It is Four A.M I have been up since Twelve. Being a Creature of habits, I can only sleep on my left side. The Arm hurt so much, it’s like I fought Mike and he only punched my left Arm. However I am so happy that I am fully Vaccinated and that if I got the Virus, it won’t put me in the Hospital and it won’t kill me. Parting Words, it is not a Hoax and not wearing a Mask and getting Vaccinated is Stupid.

Long-haul Covid patients can experience ‘waves of symptoms,’ early research suggests
Kelly Marcilliat realized something was terribly wrong with his thinking on a drive last summer.
He’d pulled up to a four-way stop — a situation Marcilliat, 55, of Denver, had been in thousands of times before. This time, however, he couldn’t figure out when it was his turn to go.
“I sat there looking at the intersection,” Marcilliat said, “wondering, ‘What the hell do I do?'”

The cognitive problems popped up months after he first became ill with Covid-19, blindsiding him.
“When I was at my sickest from the virus, initially, I didn’t feel dopey-headed. I just felt exhausted,” he said.

Marcilliat isn’t alone: New research suggests that long-term symptoms of Covid-19 may emerge in a distinct pattern over weeks and months.
Natalie Lambert, an associate research professor at Indiana University School of Medicine, surveyed thousands of “long-hauler” Covid-19 patients, finding that specific symptoms tend to emerge at regular intervals — usually a week or 10 days — resulting in what she calls “waves of symptoms.”
More research is needed to confirm the results, which have not been published in a medical journal or posted to a preprint server. But the early findings, which were shared with NBC News, could give clinicians insights into treating long-haulers more effectively and perhaps even preventing debilitating symptoms.Dr. Richard Walker, chairman of emergency medicine for the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, said Lambert’s work was “very important research.”
“Any time we can predict the course of the disease, it offers us the ability to mitigate problems,” said Walker, who was not involved in the research.
Lambert surveyed 5,163 long-haulers. Patients were contacted online through the website Survivor Corps, a site dedicated to long-haulers. Seventy-seven percent of respondents had either tested positive for Covid-19 or had been diagnosed by physicians based on their symptoms and exposure.
In the survey, Lambert asked patients what symptoms they had and approximately how long after their illnesses they had begun.
Overall, patients reported more than 100 symptoms. Not all are necessarily connected to Covid-19 — it will take time for researchers to sort that out.
But long-haulers do tend to be careful note takers. “They are normally tracking their symptoms week by week so that they can report it to the doctor to try to get help,” Lambert said.
When Lambert analyzed symptom onset specifically, distinct patterns emerged.
“The first wave is clearly the more flu-like symptoms,” such as fatigue, headache, fever and chills, she said. “Then it seems like diarrhea, nausea and vomiting are five days later, typically.”
The new waves don’t mean the previous symptoms disappear; those symptoms can linger, or they may fade and re-emerge later.
Ten days into illness, another wave crashes. This time, the new symptoms tend to be more neurologic, including confusion, dizziness and difficulty concentrating. Patients may also develop joint pain and low back pain. Some report pressure in the brain that is so intense that it feels like their heads might explode.
Fifteen days into illness, yet another wave of new symptoms: high or low blood pressure, heart palpitations, a tendency to faint.
A week later — about 21 days in — patients start experiencing issues like mouth sores, muscle twitching, eye infections and a skin condition that has been referred to as “Covid toes.”
Covid-19 symptoms are variable, but overall, the first few waves of symptoms — flu-like illness, gastrointestinal issues and neurologic symptoms — tend to mirror what a typical non-long-hauler patient would experience, said Dr. Rebecca Keith, an associate professor of pulmonary and critical care medicine at National Jewish Health in Denver. Keith is a co-director of the facility’s post-Covid-19 clinic.
That is, there is no way to tell early on whether a patient might become a long-hauler. In fact, there are still no standard criteria to define or diagnose long-haulers. Symptoms may come and go, or they may last for months.
“Once they start having symptoms past, like, six to eight weeks, people start getting real worried,” said Keith, who was not involved with Lambert’s research.

Dr. Michele Longo, an assistant professor of neurology at Tulane University in New Orleans who works with long-haulers, said the neurologic symptoms listed in Lambert’s survey are, indeed, “most commonly reported by patients” in her clinic.Why there seems to be a predilection for neurologic symptoms in the post-acute sequelae of Covid infection remains to be understood,” said Longo, who was not involved with the research. (“Sequelae” is a Latin word that refers to conditions that occur following a disease.)
Keith agreed. “If we can define the pathways that are contributing to this from a scientific standpoint,” she said, “we can think about how to talk therapies and hope.”
Patients, too, are desperate for answers.
“It’s extremely unsettling to not be able to tell yourself why something is happening to you,” Marcilliat said. “It gives you a feeling of complete lack of control, like you’re a leaf in the wind.”
“No one wants to be like that,” he said.

Hate is like taking Poison and waiting for the other person to Die. It benefits no one not even yourself. Like Kenny Loggins said ” Angry Eyes, I bet you wish you could cut me down with those angry Eyes”. Anger has an insatiable appetite. Anger is poison for the Chemical Composition of the Body, it triggers bad Enzymes. The constant flood of stress Chemicals and associated metabolic changes that go with ongoing unmanaged anger, can eventually cause harm to many different systems in the Body. For instance it can cause things like Headache from the unnoticed stress. Other things that are uncommon are, Digestive problems, Insomnia, increased Anxiety, Depression, High Blood pressure, Skin problems such as Eczema, Heart attack and Stroke.
I have no Medical Training, but I do my Research. The same way I can dig up this Information, so can you. Hate is a Derivative of Anger it is bad for the Soul. ” If you go to Bed angry every Day you are saying Prayers to the Devil” – Bob Marley. How can your Soul be Healthy if if you are consumed with the Hate Virus. Like the Man said Religion is Manmade, Spirituality comes from God. While working in a Nursing Home I got introduced to my Mortality. I learned that I wasn’t going to live forever, so I should drink from the Chalice of Life and good living until it becomes empty, as in Dying. I learned that every Day I lived it’s a Day getting older, the older I get the more frail and susceptible my Body become to Ill health and Diseases.
Why shouldn’t I be a Day older and perceptively wiser observing One Hundred and Twenty Residents. This is you my Mind spoke to me, every Day I walked into that place, I entered my Mortality. My Mother had Dementia, I visited her Seven Days a Week. I did that to give her a moment of Clarity, if only for Half an Hour. Each Visit my Heart was fractured seeing My Dear Mom in a natural state of being Stupified like she just smoked Angel Dust. Every Day I live I ask God, anything, but Cancer and Dementia. I can’t help it, I was Old at Twelve, I was Old at Fourteen, I became that way from watching Old People. In other words if I Died Tomorrow, I have lived my years in every single Minute of every single Day. Like the Man said ” No Regrets”. Through the Roots puts it best ” We ain’t got no worries ” with that Attitude, I have no Time to Hate or be Angry, as in The Angry Black Man Syndrome.
Sickness and Diseases are waiting for me around the Corner, I am going to live my Life with a Bang until my Mortality catches up to me. Sickness and Diseases aren’t Pregudicall. Today I learned that some of my favorite Personalities are dealing with thei’r own Battles.
It was recently revealed that Clooney suffered pancreatitis after losing 28 pounds for his role in his newest movie, The Midnight Sky. The onset likely came from rapid weight loss, and it’s uncertain what effect it may have on the actor, as the disease tends to vary person to person. Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has bipolar II disorder, which means she has mood swings that go between euphoria and depression. Can you imagine being on a Set and having an occurrence. My Friend Money Education and Skills are of no Factors when your Health attacks you.
Alec Baldwin suffers from chronic Lyme disease. The actor doesn’t talk about it very often, but he has admitted that “At the some time of year, I get really tired.” I hope that Someone is getting my Drift, there is no Time for Hate when the Sand in the Hour Glass steadily trickles to the lower half. The Biggest problem facing Our New President is Division which is a Derivative of Hate. Joe is a Spiritual Man, a Man of Convictions and a Religious Man. So was Dr King, so was John F Kennedy, they failed in bringing Unification to this Country. Joe I wish you Good Luck. This World has been Divided since the Cannanites set themselves apart to build thei’r own Society.
Excerpts from Wikipedia
The word “Canaanites” serves as an ethnic catch-all term covering various indigenous populations—both settled and nomadic-pastoral groups—throughout the regions of the southern Levant or Canaan. It is by far the most frequently used ethnic term in the Bible. In the Book of Joshua, Canaanites are included in a list of nations to exterminate, and later described as a group which the Israelites had annihilated. Biblical scholar Mark Smith notes that archaeological data suggests “that the Israelite culture largely overlapped with and derived from Canaanite culture… In short, Israelite culture was largely Canaanite in nature.”:13–14 The name “Canaanites” is attested, many centuries later, as the endonym of the people later known to the Ancient Greeks from c. 500 BC as Phoenicians, and after the emigration of Canaanite-speakers to Carthage (founded in the 9th century BC), was also used as a self-designation by the Punics (chanani) of North Africa during Late Antiquity. That my Friend is the History of Division, the onset of Division began when Cain killed his Brother. Cain, the firstborn, was a farmer, and his brother Abel was a shepherd. The brothers made sacrifices to God, each of his own produce, but God favored Abel’s sacrifice instead of Cain’s. Cain then murdered Abel, whereupon Yahweh punished Cain by condemning him to a life of wandering.
The narrative never explicitly states Cain’s motive for murdering his brother, nor God’s reason for rejecting Cain’s sacrifice, nor details on the identity of Cain’s wife. Some traditional interpretations consider Cain to be the originator of evil, violence, or greed. According to Genesis, Cain was the first human born and the first murderer. All of this is too much for my Little Brain, so I draw my own Conclusions, the Human Mind is Cancerous. Jesus came to this earth for the express purpose of shedding His precious blood on the cross to provide forgiveness of sins. Mankind have not Capitalized on that. I don’t like to be a Cynic but who is the next Messiah. This is enough Exercise for my Brain for One Lifetime, let’s move on and Chart our own Personal Path. Think about it, for someone who doesn’t go to Church every Sunday and can Immerse himself in such Thoughts, what of he who does. Many Days I have asked God, what is my Purpose, maybe he has answered me and I wasn’t listening.
California’s Health Care Community is calling for a Ten Day Strike. Moral Hypocrites would condemn them for even thinking along that line in a Time when they are needed the most. Well let me ask you who are the Hypocrites here. Fools who have listened to Fools telling them that wearing a Mask is Foolish. These same fools are party Animals and you can’t take away their Right to Socialize in large Numbers, if and when they choose to gather. With no support from the Government and the Community. They are asked to work in substandard Facilities and Conditions.
They have seen Deaths among Coworkers and many of them are also sick, exhaustion and Burnouts is the Norm. I know the Importance of not losing my income in a time when many of my Neighbors and Coworkers haven’t been to work since March. These Healthcare workers can’t afford to loose their Incomes. However they need to get the Attention of the Government and the Community, you are asking a lot of the Human Spirit and Physical Health. Asking them to Build a House with a Handful of Mud and a couple of Straws. Herd Immunity didn’t work in Sweden and it won’t work in California or anywhere else. Not wearing a Mask has turned a Pandemic into a Contagion of mass Proportion in many Places.
Yet I come to work in the Courthouse and I see Stupid People who has to have a Mask on and get thei’r Temperature taken at the Front Door, walking around in the Building without a Mask. Everyday I come to work I noticed People not at thei’r Desks, sometimes they are not there for Weeks. These are the same People who snickered behind my back when I started wearing a Mask, before the C.D.C recommend that wearing a Mask could slow the Spread. Being Heard Minded you have pushed the Healthcare Community Nationwide to its Limit. In this World, my favorite Antagonists are the ones who step on your Foot purposefully, then say they didn’t mean it.
You have kicked the Healthcare Community in the Butt, if they choose to kick back, it’s quite all right with me. My Wife Retired from working Twenty Five years in the V.A. Hospital Emergency Room. Many of her Coworkers Died from Work related Illnesses and Stress related Illnesses. Not long ago they asked her to return to work in a Volunteer capacity to help deal with the Pandemic. I didn’t advise her but if I did, I would ask her what have your Government done for you lately, other than spreading Misinformation. From working in Hazmat for years I learned that wearing a Mask have saved my Life, just like it has for the last Ten Months, coming to work everyday in a Contaminated Building.
