Wandering Thoughts

My mind has been wandering some today from my daily reading on the internet.

A lot of what you are able to read about these days is about the swine flu out break, epidemic, plague, joke. Just depends on who was writing about it and if the so called facts they read are true or not. Heck the news places each have different stories and accounts of what has or has not happened. So once again you do not know what to believe or not believe.

Do I feel that there is a threat? Yes anytime that there is a virus going around that can kill you and they have no vaccine for it then I am worried. But then how many people die each year from the normal flu viruses?

Now do not get me wrong here I am not trying to step on any toes or piss anyone off. It just does not make any sense to me is all.

I have a disease that has been around for years and they have not even came close to find out for sure what causes it and or even come close to a cure for it. Sure it is not a very common one but you would think they would of found something by now.

How would you like it when your hurting and sick and all they do is tell you go on a clear liquid diet and give you pain pills? And you know that it is slowly killing you.

Real comforting especially when you go to the specialists office and all of the doctors there have heard or it but I am their first case. In fact I have made them do a lot of reading about it because I knew more about it then they did. But that is another story.

Ok then what about cancer? Aids? I could keep on going but what good will that be.

Now the part that I have heard about swine flu is that it is a man made virus! Now why in the world would they do this for? Your guess is as good as mine.

But I will close with this...Do not screw with mother nature...It will kick your butt every time!

It is what it is

Hey Rod,
Sorry you're not well and have this awful thing to live with. It really is terrible when you're ill and the doctors can't do much to help you. :(

I'm sort of glad that I've been too occupied to read up on all the stuff surrounding this flu. Am sure there is lots to be said about it. If I'm not mistaken, the Spanish Flu killed tons of people in the 1900's yet it began with a mild cold. People got better, then it began to spread, and then many got the *cold* back, but this time it was a deadly flu. People were so afraid of getting it from others that they refused to aid friends neighbors and relatives who were ill with this Flu.

But this day and age, it would be devastating with the travel around the world. Let's hope for the best.

I have also heard that this flu is engineered. I would not at all be surprised. Many drug manufacturers have also posted losses, particularity those who make the flu medication and those who are working on the vaccine..Hmmmmm.

Have a good one!

Hey Rod...

Hope you don't get worse, my friend. There is so much hype going around about the newest flu, it's hard to tell what the truth is anymore.

I suggest that we don't panic, stay away from crowds...and do like the Vice Prez. said...stay off of planes and subways!

Rod said...

Well so far I am having it a lot better than some so lets hope it stays that way.
Subway? Never even seen one so don't need to worry about that.
But then there are the undocumented immigrants I do need to worry about!
Thanks for stopping by.
