    Why are we "social distancing"? This article explains one woman's view of it, but it could be any of us

    Are people acting all crazy and hoarding things at the grocery store?

      Albertson, Smith-Kroger, and some other stores put a limit on TP, sanitizer, and other stuff. The grocery stores here are pretty much deserted.

      Yes it's normal. I was declared cancer free this summer-treatment ended Valentine's Day-2013.
      Yesterday, I got a big cramp in my neck-I had several symptoms of head radiation caused stroke and a mini-stroke. My son got me to the ER in 20 minutes.

      I'm not the only one worried and freaks out---last night I had scans to see if the radiation from years ago caused a septic spot in my throat, if anytype of growth was starting in my throat-and he named about 3 more things he wanted to check with the scan. Also labs to see if anything is wrong there. Several years ago, I had a kidney infection, and that ER DR was worried that the radiation had affected my kidneys or the rads started a cancer in my urinary system.

      I worry about my 3 coonhounds getting fed regularly-getting vet care. I fed the hounds before we left for the ER. My sweet Missy is ancient, blind -deaf, and she has a bad stomach. If given dry dog food she starts bleeding. A canned food diet is too hard on her system and she starts bloating and hurting. She doesn't have accidents in the house. She finally adjusted to being blind and deaf. I don't worry too much about my son and grandson-both adults-but I worry about my coonhounds.

      I had a friend who is a potter make a very nice urn for my ashes--- when the times comes!

      If it makes you feel more in control, make sure your will is up to date, your financial affairs are in order and if you are planing a funeral, discuss that with your family as will.
      You will feel relieved so you can then get on living.

      Don't forget to designate someone to be your legal designated patient advocate-power of attorney for your medical care.

      I don't care to be stuck in a bed on oxygen and tube fed.. Part of this is that my nose wouldn't survive oxygen-and more importantly, things like Ensure, Slim Fast, etc give me great pain in my stomach-I end up puking. I'd want them to stop the tube feeding instead of going through that-conscious or unconscious. For me it would be a sign to go--let my angel take me to my Lord. I'm not the best Christian, and I'm scared that my angel will get mad because the doctors ke4ep stepping on her and pushing her out of the way, and she'll take me to the hot place
