      Sue can your PCP recommend some counseling. My medical center has a counseling department. You are simply doing too much. A counselor could help you find ways to reduce your work load without jeopardizing your retirement or health insurance. Also you should check out this site
      http://www.livestrong.org/we-can-help/ If you explore the site you can find many resources the also have one on one counseling

      It isn't so much the cars.

      It is a bit of the cows and the lands clear cut of trees, which once helped to supply oxygen, to hold the animals.

      Mostly it is the endless wars.

      Iraq did not know cancer until we gifted them with rounds and rounds of depleted uranium bombs (depleted? What does that mean? The reactors can't use it? because we know it takes millions of years for the poisons to go away). Now our military has gifted the cop on the corner with bullets that have depleted uranium heads (depleted? What does that mean? ....).

      Japan was foolish enough to let a munitions company (General Electric) build six nuclear reactors on a fault line. The whole Northern hemisphere of the planet will be paying dearly for that idiocy for some time to come. If they don't stop the leaking (they don't know how, they say), all waters will become polluted and all the food will come replete with cessium 90. Geiger counters are spinning in what used to be quiet places. You would think that, of all countries, Japan would know better than to trust a US munitions company but so it goes.

      There are few restrictions on imports from Japan. That car next to you on the road might set a geiger counter to clicking. How does one tell if a Japanese car was made in the Ozarks or in Tokyo? A whole bunch of earthquake trash hit the US Pacific Northwest Coast. Some of it was large and set geiger counter sounding like cicadas in hot weather.

      It is difficult to believe there is NOT a conspiracy when you break things down simply and just follow the money.

      There is a HUGE amount of hepatitis in North Africa. A couple of decades ago, WHO was gracious enough to give as many of those folks as they could find a vaccine against hepatitis B which was a gift from our dear friends at Merck. They sorta forgot to use new needles with each patient and have spread the infection rather than eliminate it. The vaccine also contain(ed?) something or other which seemed to cause demyelination. I had to look it up .. it is some sort of nerve damage. It causes all the complaints of hepatitis plus quite a few more. Merck is doing quite well being paid to clean up the damage.

      Medicine always asks for a trade off. Okay. The problem it that there are times when the trade off is worse than the original health challenge. The problem is that medicine seldom, if ever, puts all its cards on the table.

      Had anyone told me the truth about what might be done to me. Had anyone answered my detailed questions with other than lies, there is great doubt that I would be blogging here. No one can know if I'd be off to greener pastures or to Elysian Fields but I wasn't given a choice because I was given false information to get me into the system.

      I think that sux.

      P. S. Clorox changed the formula for several Burts Bees products once it bought the company. I can't use those products any more.

      I'll let you blather about the environment. I sign petitions, and am the mother of a bat, 2 butterflies (probably chopped up by wind energy in their migration path) and a sea turtle that probably got drowned by a net so non-beef eaters can eat fish. I do not eat fish, because our planet is over-fished, and on the point of no return. I love to fish, but realized that I needed to catch and release in the 1970s-late 1970s. The Ancient Greeks probably had cancer; people in the 1920s had cancer. The problem with the earth is that there are too many people here. The huge hurricanes, super tornados, earthquakes -and fracking helps with the earthquakes are the sign of a beast that's attacked by wolves and is fighting for its life, rolling over on the predators., kicking them.

      My main group is a Spanish one that has a global vision of saving the Selva-the jungle on every continent- and are worried about European exploitation of South America, the Pacific islands and Southeast Asia. America doesn't have the only companies that are guilty- and I wouldn't call the Japanese politically or scientifically naive. They darn well resist anything that they don't think is in the best interest of their nation.
