Warning, this is a venting post. I am not taking any consideration of anyone’s personal feeling right now. Mostly because too few bother to consider mine. This is simply something I have to get out and just having it tucked away hidden in a file seemed disrespectful of myself and the few out there that must feel and think the same as I do. It would be a shame if I found I really was a lone wolf on this subject. But I don’t think I am.
It really is VERY sad that a grown man cannot simply move on with more important matters. It really is VERY sad he thinks the country has nothing better to do or think about than his childish ego.
If you realize I am speaking of the baby pretending to be president than you are right. I really am heartily sick of hearing his constant whining about his not receiving more popular votes than he did, and to be quite honest if there IS voter fraud I would suspect it more his doing than anyone else’s and he simply can’t believe his trick didn’t work.
What will he do when they find there is no fraud except on his part?
I am sick of the tantrums he throws, his finger pointing, his constant pouting. He has managed to ruin what little this country had left of respect. And I am writing this to vent, not please.
It sickens me having to wake every morning knowing there is a hateful, spiteful infant throwing tantrums because he doesn’t get things he wants. I never dreamed we would have to live in a country run by people as awful, as selfish, as the people in D.C. right now.
Between the white house, the congress and the senate, we have nothing but idiots thinking only of their own personal self interest instead of the country. I never dreamed it would be so bad. I want to go to sleep and never wake up.
Every time I read of another idiotic thing happening there it makes me wish I had died last year before I had to witness such a sick tragedy. We finally found a government that is so evil and closed minded, thinking only of what they might get out of only God knows what, that I doubt this country ever recovers. It would take many, many generations for this mess to get fixed.
I see it getting much worse long before it gets even slightly better. And it won’t happen with anyone who is currently in office. Sad to think everything my forefathers fought for when they fought for independence has been flushed down the toilet. And all for a few stupid bucks and ego. Perhaps my forefathers saw what was coming because they all left for Canada, Alaska and a handful here in Washington state. It’s a shame most are no longer walking among the living. The country could use a good swift kick!
I am afraid of what will happen. This is not the world, the country, we wanted for you, for our grandchildren, or great grandchildren. He may be a joke of a president, but he is very dangerous because he not only does not know things he should know, he doesn’t care. He doe not care what happens to the people, as long as he has a place to hide in comfort, he does not care what happens to the rest of the nation.
I will be posting this on my blog in a bit, but wanted to share it with you. How are you doing sweetie? I have found you wandering through my thoughts a lot lately. So many things have changed.
But one thing remains the same, we love and care about you very much. Hope that you are well. Trisha graduates this June. Amazing right. 🙂
Take care, my Angel, fly hi and stay free. Help those who are in need and remember, they don’t always look the way one might think.
It has been a really rough spring, yet I am thankful that I am not in the hospital this time. I have hit a hard place in that on top of having Early on set Alzheimer’s, now I am going through menopause. And since menopause has so many of the same symptoms I get a double whammy.
It never ends. It has been making me ask, “What’s the point of all this? Why do we do all the things we do? All the hard work, making money, writing, anything we do. Why?”
You know, that tiny word can really be huge. It makes me think of something I have said since I was a teen, “For as vast as the Universe is, the mind is more so.” I realize there will quite a few people who say, “No way!” But think about it a minute.
Have you ever REALLY been able to answer the question, “Why?” I mean it is one silly word and yet it is an entire question all by itself that never seems to have a solution, one why will lead to another and another and soon you have – a Universe.
Lately I have found it difficult to write. I have been having more trouble stringing words together to form sentences, at least any that make sense. Thank goodness the people around me can usually puzzle out what I am trying to say. It is maddening trying to come up with a simple little word like – oh for heaven’s sake anything. My brain has decided to stop so I have to end this.
Have you ever wondered if anyone reading what you write are people who really need to see something like this or if they are people who are already like you and so easily find it?
Of course, if you have found it, even if you are something like me, you may need to read something here whether because you might learn something you don’t know about yourself, or me, or the world, so I guess everyone who finds this must need something in it. Even if it is a smile.
Not even sure why this came to mind. But I have been wondering odd things lately and have found that it bothers me more now than it once did that I can’t understand why we are here. What purpose there might be in all of this. What the point of all this is.
Yes, it is one of THOSE days.
It has been truly difficult to do much of anything for far too long . I am feeling good right now and wanted to write something before things get stupid again .
I haven’t been able to walk since I fell last January and broke both legs . Alzheimer’s is good for something, I can’t remember the fall very well, if at all , and I used to have so much trouble NOT remembering things like that . I used to have nightmares after falling and breaking something . Thing is , I have been remembering less every day . Not so good .
I will say this , I am so frustrated about what they tell people about how to possibly prevent this disease or at least slow it down . And the remarks about having better education and training your brain drive me nuts .
First of all most of the people who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s /Dementia have been highly educated and worked their brains probably TOO much . Many of them had exceptional memories like me. And I have been wondering about the early onset version of Alzheimer’s , because I have found it is not a new one only recently discovered.
I believe several people who gave much to science and technology as far back as the 1700s and possibly even earlier had it, especially the early onset one . Watching several scientific programs and reading biography and autobiographical has helped me see this . It has made me think that they are looking for answers in the wrong places. Which is sad . But will they listen to anything that I say ? Probably not .
I do believe that the Dementia one gets BEFORE age 65 is more different than the type one gets AFTER age 65. It’s difficult to explain why I feel this way . I just do and need to say something about it . And as for Alzheimer’s usually hitting the uneducated , and the poor , and people who don’t take care of their health and never work their brains, I find that silly .
I know that they are trying to get people to take care of themselves better, but these things don’t seem to be the cause of EOAD. I’m sorry. And working on puzzles and keeping your brain active and alert is great , but it won’t stop the disease .
You see , if EOAD worked the way they are trying to say it does then why do we have so many people who are highly educated and such hard working and who have been doing puzzles of all sorts with the disease . The same might be said for the disease that strikes after age 65.
My husband and I saw a show on Alzheimer’s / Dementia maybe 10 years ago and what stuck with me was one woman who was oh I think in her 90s or over 100 and she could remember so many things that I was wishing I could sit down and just listen . I would have asked her if I could write about it all . Can you imagine all the things we will never get to know because it is not being written down . And this woman never went through college , in fact , I can’t remember exactly , but I don’t think she went very far and may not have gone at all .
There are many other people who are like her . Some took care of themselves , but some did just about anything and everything , so much in fact you were somewhat surprised to see them not just alive , but enjoying life and what they were talking about . Yes , I so wish I could sit down with people who are 50 up and talk with them and write down what they said .
To be honest , I think children would learn more if they were allowed to sit with someone who is in a retirement home . I think everyone would benifit from the experience . And when the children are old enough to write well enough to be read by others stories that are currently being lost can be saved .
The children learn more about life , manners , respect , responsibility and so much more and the people who they are sharing their time with feel happier . Less lonely and so many other things . I think it would be a great thing . Something that can start in at least first grade and continue through high school . Something that would , besides making everyone feel great and so much learning being done , it would look good on an application whether for work or college . Also by doing this , it may help get more people interested in Healthcare Jobs especially where we need it most – the retirement homes and memory care facilities .
Yes, I realize that there are individuals who are not keen on having children around , but many of these change after getting a little bit of attention , the proper kind . It will take time to get it going well , but once it does , everyone will be wondering why it hadn’t been done sooner .
Maybe starting out one day a week , or if you think that is too much, then try once a month . But weekly would be great . For lots of reasons and I would have to say that twice a week would also work allowing the children more opportunities to get to know the people and possibly more than one home being at so more experience .
A lot of people who are reading this article will think I have slipped a little , or a lot . But this is something I have been thinking about for a long time . This, by the way , would also work in places where they have disabled people , or veterans if they allow it .
You know . My blog pages never read the way I think they should . I don’t know if I am doing this right or wrong . My journals read the same way . Odd, often rambling , strange and often gut wrenching . My husband says that I tend to be too blunt and I try to be honest . If I make a difference in someone’s life , especially if they need it, then I am happy .
Alzheimer’s is slowly and mercilessly beating me . This is a battle that I will not win, but I will not let it take me before I get to tell you what I can about it and what it is , does and what it might do if we cannot do something about it . But , it is not a new disease , it is , however , taking more people than it once did and younger . It may be the thing that wipes out humanity . After all , it doesn’t just distroy the memory , it distroys lives . And never just one .
