Avoid any place where people gather!

A waiting room of any kind is to be avoided, and if you can't avoid them, the biggest thing to avoid in there is "reading the magazines"!  Lots of colds are transmitted on the magazine rack!

 Wear a medical mask as soon as you get thru the door and find the hand sanitizer. Stay in the woods where I belong  ;D .

Well, went in last Friday for a follow up to a physical (doc changed my blood pressure meds) and after 2 1/2 hours got let go, pretty sure the only thing they didn't do was change the oil in my truck, and yes it needs it. I hadn't been feeling good all week but not that bad either just told him I had tightness in my chest and lost my breath easy, so after lab tests an ekg, and chest Xrays they let me leave saying it must just be a virus, can't wait to get the bill for this one.  I do like my doctor but I also know me and probably should've put a stop to it, they've been having a LOT of influenza? around here so better safe than sorry I guess.

Heck, Coxy, I had a heart attack just after I turned 46, so age really don't have a lot to do with it!

Actually my heart attack didn't have much to do with the heart other than that's where it happened!  ::)

The doc that did the angioplasty said most likely "acute mi" was caused by a small clot probably caused by banging into the coffee table during the night, and it couldn't fit through the small artery that it wanted to go through!

There's a lot of negative talk out there about how vaccines are dangerous because they contain mercury and aluminum that can lead to all kinds of neurological illnesses. That's all I had to hear to decide that I won't take them.
I eat lots of citrus fruit, take vitamin D or fish oil supplements, drink lots of water, eat tons of garlic, and other stuff that strengthens the immune system naturally.

Casualty numbers show a much lower childhood mortality and a good deal longer lifespan since vaccination became common.   Also Id advise caution in who you listen to.  Its been my experience stupid people talk a lot and mostly to the negative.
