About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

WE LIVE IN AMERICA

~POST HURRICANE MARIA~

As of today, midterm elections in the USA are 17 days off.

Many Puerto Ricans moved to the mainland after Hurricane María devastated the island.

Guess what?

As American citizens, Puerto Ricans have the right to vote in elections in the mainland.

I’m sure many won’t forget about the weak response to the devastation.

I, for one, can’t get the image of Drumpf throwing paper towels to those gathered the see him, expecting … what?

I vote!

I will never forget, I will never forgive!

Saturday Afternoon


Waking up … hungry! Yet tired … ‘I went to the kitchen to start making lunch, but no sooner had I picked up a knife than I realized I was no longer ravenously hungry.’

I went to the kitchen to start making lunch, but no sooner had I picked up a knife than I realized I was no longer ravenously hungry. Instead, I was very sleepy. I got a blanket, stretched out on the living room sofa, and promptly drifted off. I had a dream, a short one. It was clear and very vivid. But I couldn’t remember anything about it. Just that it was clear and vivid. It felt as though a fragment of real life had slipped into my sleeping mind by mistake. Then the moment I awoke, it fled like a quick-footed animal, leaving no trace behind.

IOTD …. “😪 Images of the Day, Very Special, Sad Edition …. Who was Jamal Khashoggi? 😪 …. “!!


Jamal

~~October 20, 2018~~ 

JAMAL KHASHOGGI

~I SIMPLY HAVE NO WORDS~

This incident seems to have shaken the foundation of the world. It has also shaken the hearts of many.

Except for Saudi Arabia and the illegitimate leader of America.

So noted!

He was a prominent journalist who has covered major stories, including the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and the rise of Osama Bin Laden, for various Saudi news organizations.

For decades, Mr. Khashoggi had been close to the Saudi royal family and he also served as an adviser to the government.

But he fell out of favor and went into self-imposed exile in the US last year. From there, he has written a monthly column in the Washington Post in which he has criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

In his first column for the newspaper, Mr Khashoggi said that he feared being arrested in an apparent crackdown on dissent overseen by the prince since he became first in line to succeed his father King Salman earlier that year.

“The people being arrested are not even being dissidents, they just have an independent mind,” he told the BBC’s Newshour program just three days before he disappeared.

Saudi

He first visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 28 September to obtain a document certifying that he had divorced his ex-wife, so that he could marry his Turkish fiancée.

But he was told he would have to return and arranged to come back on the 2 October.

“He did not mind walking into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul because he did not believe that something bad could happen on Turkish soil,”

his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, wrote in the Washington Post.

“Jamal was hardly concerned ahead of his second visit.”

In Vieques, Patients Still Waiting for a Dialysis Clinic


🇵🇷 … A year after Hurricane María, Puerto Ricans suffer …. Vieques renal patients particularly!! This is close to my heart … my brother was a renal patient!! I’m familiar with their anguish!! 😢

Repeating Islands

vieques8Five dialysis patients on Vieques, Puerto Rico, have died while waiting for a clinic to reopen after Hurricane Maria. Here are excerpts of the article “In Puerto Rico, Patients Are Still Waiting for a Dialysis Clinic That May Never Come,” by Carolina Moreno (Huffington Post).

As the sun began to set on this small isolated island off Puerto Rico’s eastern coast, Sandra Medina de Jesús lay quietly on a hospital stretcher in her house. The 42-year-old mother, bedridden because of an ulcer in her tailbone, had just returned from one of the three 11-hour journeys she makes weekly to receive dialysis on the main island. “Today was one of my low days,” she told HuffPost between labored breaths. “I was feeling very unmotivated, very down. I didn’t want to go but I knew that I had to go.”

Shortly after Hurricane Maria ravaged the island in September…

Traveling to Puerto Rico …. “🇵🇷 We Had an Ulterior Motive …. Looking for New Digs 🇵🇷 …. “!!


~~October 19, 2018~~ 

I was born and raised in the island of Puerto Rico

~~I grew up under the influence of the United States~~

It was my most ardent desire to live in the mainland.

I’ve been in Florida since 1999.

Many things have changed in my life, in my surroundings, in this country.

My mind, heart and soul have gone back to my home, my country.

We traveled looking for a new place and it seems that we may have found it.

Here’s wishing and hoping with all the strength I can muster!

THIS IS WHAT WE FOUND AND WHERE WE WOULD LIKE TO BE!

MY KINDA PLACE

I’ve posted about this little piece of heaven in my country before

It’s always been one of my favorite places.

The ‘in-place’ to go while in college and even after.

I traveled to Puerto Rico this month.

A visit to Boquerón was a must.

Here it is!
