I woke up this morning feeling a bit down – I get this way when I can\’t really do anything in my garden. Everything is dying. Too hot for me to get out there and totally rip everything out. Too smoky which is not good for the lungs. So it\’s another day inside the house.
I\’m going to see my Doctor about some arm pain I have been having on my right arm. It\’s a burning type of pain. I\’ve had it for several years and just tried to ignore it but it\’s getting worse. It\’s a burning type of pain that is set off when I use my right arm. Brushing my hair, my teeth, cutting meat or vegetables, carrying dishes…The pain then radiates to my shoulder and upper back. I think it is when I was knocked down at the dog park by a running great Dane puppy. I injured my knee at that time as well which ended in a knee replacement 2 years ago. IT comes and goes and many times I have told the doctor but we can\’t find where the pain is so now I want an x-ray or something so I can get a shot or something. It is beginning to interfere with my quality of life. I am right-handed so it affects me.
After I see him I will go to the grocery store t get a few things and then come home and that will be the extent of my going outside today.
I would be doing something but my arm keeps me from being able to paint or sew.
So yeah, I feel down, and when I get this way I get mad – Here\’s my rant.
And then this potential mask mandate is looming in our future once again and I am sick of it. Sick of being told what I can and cannot do. Sick of wishy-washy information. I got the vaccine believing what they told me. I wouldn\’t have to wear a mask and I could get out and about. WRONG. They lied.
I read that worldwide, tobacco use causes more than 7 million deaths per year. If the pattern of smoking all over the globe doesn’t change, more than 8 million people a year will die from diseases related to tobacco use by 2030. Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths every day. I\’d say that is a pandemic. Yet nothing is being done. Hypocrisy!
I was all for getting the vaccine – I masked up – I kept my 6 ft distance – I did everything \”they\” said to do. When will this end?
I\’m sick of it. I can\’t stand our leadership – our president is an embarrassing joke. Even my leftist friend said, \”he\’s one level up from being a rock.\” Our vice president is …well I won\’t go there. Our woke, social justice agendas are ridiculous – cancel culture is wrong. The younger generation I am disappointed in. Heck, I\’m not even rooting for the USA in the Olympics. Go SWEDEN! To think I used to be a Megan Rapinoe, a local here from Redding. I used to be so proud of her. Now she has become such a ….well I won\’t go there, either.
Just seems common sense is no more. It\’s all partisan – even if it makes sense. The border crisis and then there is the Cuban crisis. Yet our leadership turns their back on them. I don\’t get that.
The USA is practically done. It is being fundamentally changed and history; whether it was right or wrong is being torn out of history books. Yet the majority of the public support it. I no longer belong here but I feel I am stuck because there really is no place to go anymore for true FREEDOM. Well, there is, but I would have to die first and I\’ll give that authority to Jesus Christ when He decides to take me HOME.
