Pro-Vax, Pro-maskers and Anti-Vax, Anti-maskers both get the virus.

 

But there is no joy in seeing either "group" suffer.

 

My daughter's neighbors are organic, back to nature, essential oil, free range chicken owners with the appropriate political signs, and Anti-Vax, Anti-maskers.

They went to Branson, Mo. last week. It has lately been ground zero for the virus with only 39% vaccinated in Taney County.

Numerous theater shows, amusement areas, dining buffets are the main attractions there.

Now the whole family has the virus, but they are too embarrassed to let their Anti-Vax, Anti-mask friends and church members know.

 

So my daughter is bringing them food (to the doorstep) and feeding chickens.

 

But there is no "Schadenfreude" for them or my friend who has nearly died twice from anaphylactic shock after her 2nd dose of vaccine. 

 

Are we enemies...or victims blaming each other?

Agreed, I know folks in both camps who have had dances with Delta Dawn recently here in TX. ( the ones with fairly recent injections seem to being only getting slight symptoms from what I have seen.)

Luckily, no one I know has died from this thing yet, and no one I know personally has had to be hospitalized, although a few had fairly rough ride at home.

 

As the flood of recent data shows, the only folks with a likely big leg up, are those who have taken this bugger head on....not a real option for many though.

 

My 80+ mother is terrified right now, as there are multiple reports now coming out about possible Delta mismatch ADE issues, that could also be applicable to the boosters, since they are still using Alpha spike formula.

But being nearly first in line for the gene shots, her antibodies are now well along in the waning phase, and she has no idea how much longer, if at all, she will have any added protection....or worse yet if she is at the point where the antibodies have waned so much that ADE type issues could take hold if she got infected with Delta or beyond.

She is considering isolating and going Monoclonal route if needed until more evidence is in on the boosters, or a Delta specific version is released. (which will also most likely be effective for only a short while, like the original, as new strains become dominant)

 

Not an enviable situation to be in....

 

And looks like Caleb did not make it...no idea if he had any other underlying conditions other than being clearly overwieght.

This is the real epidemic, that unless it is addressed, is going to keep leading to more and more unnecessary deaths.

The reason for obesity is not eating too much, it's sugar consumption.
Only a small segment of people have no problem with sugar, they have a very high metabolism, most won't be able to tolerate it.
It slows the metabolism down so that everything you eat turns to fat, it doesn't get burned. Most people at restaurants order soft drinks or sweet tea, water is all they should be drinking. Anyone can be normal weight if they eliminate all forms of sugar, even fruit and they can eat as much regular food as they want.
There may be a few outliers with a medical condition or meds may be causing it, but the majority
don't understand the sugar/obesity connection, if they do, they simply don't want to give up the sugar.

Also need to watch portions of starchy vegetables. I've eliminated below ground vegetables from my diet and breads. It's all about net carbs.

That theory does not work with me. I can't live without desserts with every meal.

I have done 36 cruises and they have choice of 4 desserts with every dinner & lunch.

I usually order 2 desserts because I love the desserts and there is no extra charge on cruise.

At age 81 now, I still can fit in my wedding dress from 1992. My secret is relentless exercise.

Exercise helped me overcome excess weight, high blood pressure, hip & knee joint pain, panic attacks,

border line diabetic etc. My exercise routine began at age 59 with playing 5 rounds of 18 every week walking 30 miles.

After quitting membership in private golf club at age 75, this is my daily exercise now.
