    I am grateful we no longer own any property in FL. The situation there is becoming worse as the storm approaches. We have friends in Miami that left for safer ground. I hope our Florida bees stay safe, as well as all Floridians.

    Horses swim very well . I have had horses. My last one was just put into retirement this year. They also spook very easily and in any unfamiliar territory in survival mode they don't care about people. How wonderful that you had the water training to help others. You are a very brave man and I am sure you will not be forgotten by those you helped. A Humanitarian and an ENVIRONMENTALIST.

    #173 I watched a movie called "Son of Saul." Why did men do that work? But the will to survive is strong. I read a book by Primo Levy, and he wrote that the Hungarian Jews refused to help with the body disposal, and the entire block was gassed en mass. These men would go into the gas chambers wearing masks, and they had poles with hooks on them, and they would untangle and remove the bodies.
    When the pellets dropped, and the gas started to rise the people in the chamber would instinctively claw and fight to get away from it. There are scratch marks on the walls of the gas chambers still. But they would be climbing over each other and would pile up in the corner of the chamber. This is grisley but that's what happened.

    #171 Everybody who is alive is a survivor in the regard that they are not dead. But, yes, some people have greater travails than other folks. One never knows what they are capable of until they are faced with a survival situation. Sometimes survival -- here's an example. Sonderkommando's and kapos. The Sonderkommando's were the Jews in the death camps who would do the work of disposing of the bodies. For this, they got extra rations and an extra three months of life because periodically the Nazi's would gas them also to eliminate witnesses. And they knew that their time was being parsed out. They sold their souls for temporary survival. The Kapos who were frequently more brutal than their Nazi overlords and they sold their souls too.

    #170 @jesse kaellis aww, I really believed that you were a survivor --I still believe it; I will continue to believe it ; even though it be raining cats and dogs and I don't have a pot to piss in; I need to believe that I'm not the only one with enough balls to be fearless in Baton Rouge; even though it's probably true

    #157 @Lisa Gallagher I've forgotten more of this material than 99+% of licensed physicians in neurology/psychiatry ever learned; its both terrifying and irritating as hell; in fact I gotta minimize my social media discussions and focus on the work; discussed in the newer post hearing comments like "we don't understand how...", and etanercept doesn't physically cross the lining of the ventricular system/choroid plexus, and from that jumping to the incorrect conclusion that billions of neurons on the other side (basically the entire parenchyma) are therefore not "contacted"... all of the "half understanding" (though, no doubt, well meaning) folks are months away (at most) from witnessing the method to immediately reverse an ongoing pro- inflammatory cytokine storm in the CNS (regardless of how advanced it may have progressed). Today, (yesterday), I guess we've entered the stage of preparing for public awareness that "things have now changed" vis a vie aberrant autoimmune activity in the CNS; what, up to now are regarded as separate entities (mood disorders, chronic pain, dementias of varying etiology, TBI sequelae, CTE.). News of the conclusive proof of this is going to be a tremendous shock that will travel quickly around the globe; it is also necessitating a change in my schedule and habitat...

    #158 @Cyndi wilkins I heard the "sun exposure" one myself; a remark about an ugly rash which comes and goes --it began after "flood exposure" --I did not waste my energy giving them a "piece of my mind, heart and soul"...just walked. Lupus of course is a perfect exemplar of the (till now untold) rapidly growing epidemic of "hair trigger" immune overeactions; often "turning on themselves" (autoimmune disorders)...which seem to be linked to (an unknown quantity/variety) environmental toxins which are saturating air, land and sea. The most recent (and completely unknown sequelae of) culprit are various nanoparticles which have been recklessly used in everything from cosmetics, to toothpaste, to Lord only knows how many "fine line an wrinkle removing creams" (whatever that means); as well as the usual suspects; it's one thing to grow an organic crop...it's another thing for a bee to pick up pollen from a GMO version down the road; because it attended the "pollination dance" at the hive "conference and entertainment center" and cross pollinate at will...as well it should; while we thank each other over the course of 2800 indexes worth of "thanks for the honey dear"...

    That is a fabulous idea Deb...For many of us dealing with congenital issues bestowed upon us by our genetics...the fear of a heart attack/stroke sometimes overrides our better judgement and we fall into the maze of medication...very tricky terrain to navigate even for someone with the knowledge of alternative therapies...but sometimes pharmaceuticals are necessary to keep things in check for a period of time until we can strike a balance in the system...Long term use is sometimes a necessary part of the equation, but having a better understanding of how these chemicals effect our bodily systems would certainly shed light on how we approach treatment and customize care to our specific needs rather than being thrown into the snake pit to take our chances with taming the beast. We are at the mercy of the establishment when it comes to our health...and they do not focus much on prevention. In fact, side effects caused by drugs are grossly under reported because of the time consuming nature of doing such for doctors who are already over scheduled and quite frankly, uninformed on such matters.

    #158 You know, Gerry. If you post your paypal, I will pay you for a few freshman level classes on some of these topics.... No prescribing, just science. It is really sad that we have so many people on pills, but it is not part of the package to understand what these things are doing so that the person can adjust other variables and watch for emerging problems....they just have to wait until the side effect is so pronounced it is worth the financial hit and loss of time to go back to the doctor who is just guessing, as well, but has the certainty of being patted on the back by the pharma rep....

    I am really serious, @Gerald Hecht. Name your price on explaining the electrolytes, because helping people understand the balance of calcium, sodium, magnesium, potassium would go a long way for establishing a basic level of health possible simply with food and really safe, cheap supplements. It is a crime that all most people know is you buy a bottle of crocodile-ade and that sorts out your electrolytes - along with a gallon of sugar that will give your pancreas a heart attack.

    #130 I have a pharmaceutical question @Gerald Hecht...I've struggled with blood pressure problems over the past few years despite my best efforts with alternative therapies and was eventually placed on Lisinopril (low dose) to keep it in check...After recent surgery and the hormonal effects experienced by "women of a certain age," the BP has been much higher prompting my doctor to double down on dosage of meds...Now I am struggling a bit with what appears to be discoid Lupus type eruptions on my lower legs and arms...She thinks it's a reaction to sun exposure...but I have had an entire summer of sun exposure without issue until I increased the dosage...Perhaps a reaction to this drug or combination of the two? She wants to further increase it and I declined much to her disapproval...I know rising blood pressures are very dangerous, especially to cardiac patients, which unfortunately I qualify...Curious your thoughts on the drug itself...

    #152 Holy crap that's something I had never heard before @Gerald Hecht. I found an old article about it (partial article) in Time Magazine. It appears this happened in 1949 and it was given to a cardiac patient who died from it as well. I can't believe it's stuff like this we never hear about. Kids should be learning about this in history class even, since not all kids take Chemistry. They put my sister on Lithium about 4 mos ago or so. I found out they didn't check her level for 6 weeks and had her call to demand a blood test. She's not on Lithium anymore. A Psychiatrist (hospitalist) put her on Lithium in hospital and her Dr. was never informed. Again, my disdain for hospitals using hospitalists too. Your stains were cool. SO much I don't understand but this is very interesting! Thanks
