Cervical spondylosis, was his diagnosis. December 19th. And the start of 30 days of physical therapy.

And a maniacal routine of daily stretching exercises. And tracking the activity on an IOS App. Because that’s how Obsessive’s roll.

The slow heal arrives. Then Relief.  And the bliss of pain-free days. Ah yes, Youth returns. A few days of lolling in Full Gratitude…I’m as Good as new!

This is followed by the suspension of physical therapy. The total cessation of daily stretching supplements. And the IOS App is dumped into a folder with other apps left to Die.

Then we have a slow roll back to habits, to Life, to Work, and The Return to Sedentary World.

It’s late yesterday afternoon. The commute home. I gently turn my neck to check for traffic in my blind spot, and find its motion restricted, followed by a lightning dart down the shoulder…

Open Letter To The Three Stooges

You three are FIDIOTS, utterly useless clown who deserve nothing but a case of ‘CORONA’ … ‘You, gentlemen, are definitely NOT doing anything to be a part of the solution, so please step aside and let the adults attempt to safeguard the people of this nation.’

Filosofa's Word

Dear Messrs. Donald Trump, John Michael (Mick) Mulvaney, and Michael Huckabee,

There is a time for having fun, a time for jokes and humour.  However, there is also a time to be serious.  I read with horror this morning Mr. Mulvaney’s comments, obviously intended to be funny, claiming that the reason the media was reporting extensively on the spread of the coronavirus was to try to “take down” Donald Trump.

If I took your comments seriously, Mr. Mulvaney, I would have asked you if, then, the entire world was attempting to “take down” Trump, since media outlets worldwide are providing continual coverage and updates on the spread of this illness.  But I realized that nobody with any sense would make such a statement except in jest, so while it annoyed me, I let it ride.

Then later in the day you, Mr. Trump, came along and made the same claim…

In truth a family is what you make it. It is made strong, not by number of heads counted at the dinner table, but by the rituals you help family members create, by the memories you share, by the commitment of time, caring, and love you show to one another, and by the hopes for the future you have as individuals and as a unit.

Make No Mistake, The Coronavirus Is Coming To The USA/ It’s Only A Matter Of When

Very interesting and complete post … worth a read!! Sharing …
“The best thing you can do to prevent all sorts of illnesses, Messonnier said, is “wash your hands, cover your cough, take care of yourself, and keep alert to the information that we’re providing.”
“You’ll also want to protect yourself from financial losses related to travel. If you’re thinking about a trip in the coming months, make sure you’re comfortable with the cancellation policy on your tickets and consider paying extra for a flexible fare.’

Gronda Morin

Any talking points regarding the discounting of the future effects of the coronavirus on the American peoples emanating out of the White House is a lie. This is what happens when the USA has a commander-in-chief who’s an open ignoramus regarding any subject of a scientific nature.

This coronavirus (nCoV) will eventually be widespread in the USA. What’s needed to best protect the health of those who live in the USA, are specific suggestions/ planned steps as to how to mitigate for its inevitable negative effects. The initial stages mimic an attack similar to typical flu symptoms which can cause carriers to discount any imminent danger at an early stage. It’s highly contagious with the fatality rate being higher than the normal winter flu at about 2%.

One step would be for the White House and the FDA to allow those states which follow or surpass the established protocols set…

We see what is coming … ‘This is called the incredulity response. “Those who live move,” he says … Jenny Offill, Weather: A Novel (Knopf, February 11, 2020).

Live & Learn

That night on the show, there’s an expert giving advice about how to survive disasters, natural and man-made. He says it’s a myth that people panic in emergencies. Eighty percent just freeze. The brain refuses to take in what is happening. This is called the incredulity response. “Those who live move,” he says.
