not looking good for that 2nd shot according to the news today....

Client is a nurse, got the first round, said she was more scared of the vaccine than the virus!
got the first round, said she had such bad heart rate, almost like a panick attack, sore shoulders and neck muscles, waking up in the middle of the night freaking out. Being a nurse she went to the er. had all kinds of tests done. While waiting for test results the symptoms subsided. felt almost normal. got the second shot. tests all came back negative and drs' didn't know what was going on. soon after the second shot, she had the same symptoms come back, super fast heart rate, like 170/90!
She self diagnosed herself when her test results came back negative, says it was the vaccine that was doing that to her body. I don't know, we are all guinea pigs at this point. Better than the virus though!!!
We're going to get group psychosis from the idea of the shot making them sick

My sister will faint around needles. The power of belief is something

"bad heart rate, almost like a panick attack, sore shoulders and neck muscles, waking up in the middle of the night freaking out."

This is my normal state so I don't think the shot will faze me. :dancing:

Sounds like an anxiety attack .... or the weed was too good and ya held yer breath for too long. :alien:
Or, they'll slap one of these things to your chest for 30 days to see what yer ticker is doing.

I never had an angziety attack until both my parents died with in a two week period.

People would say that had them and I would be all "What? Just relax, you pussy."

My sisters took tons of anxiety meds, I just white knuckled it.

I had one one time on a plane as people were boarding. I almost got off but I said to myself, you will be stuck in the airport in SF and have to do this again.

So I just used tension to handle it. That is okay in the short term. But getting control with excessive tension messes you up long term.

I'm fine now.

Right?

Right?

:cursing:

THC levels are rising.
I'm surfing when there's waves
I'm running 5-6 miles, 3-4 times a week
I'm playing drums (electronic kit) a good amount
I'm practicing guitar every day almost

That's what I need.

My situation is tenuous though, so I don't really beat myself up or call myself selfish for needing these things to keep it together. What ever helps.
I also feel it's important to show my daughter that taking care of yourself is important, and can be very effective in dealing with anxiety, fear, and especially anger. IMO, she doesn't get a lot of that example elsewhere.

It's also a really great excuse to (get high and) practice your instrument. Or (get high and) listen to music while running.
Temptation bundling at it's finest :roflmao:

Decided by whom and why? Better yet, why not just shut the whole thing down since colleges and universities themselves come from a European narrative?
Probably non-Europeans. Or maybe not.
But Europe created the concept of the university?

Perhaps that statement is a symptom that the larger effort to decentralize a Eurocentric shaping of the world seeks to address?

I retired.

Was asked to come back. Was begged to come back.


The powers that be have known this for 6 months. January 1st, my email account and privledges from 16 years of service were deleted. Pau.

Non retreivable. I was asked and tasked to help do the colleges 2020 W2's. Two weeks spent trying to get our IT Dept. to give me the priveledges/access I need to do the fvcking job. I'm working now but only 6 more bidness days left to turn out a workable product.

All I have to say is never give your employer an advance notice of retirement. It's not fvcking worth it.
