I Didn’t Write Yesterday (August 20, 2020), because I was Really Under the Weather. As Many of you Probably Know, I’m a Type II Diabetic – But I’m also Somewhat Overweight, and about 7-Years Ago I had a Small Stroke with a 99% Recovery and as a Result I am on Several Different Types of Medication Including Plavix, which is a Blood Thinner.
I was Scheduled to have some Dental Work Done Late Yesterday Afternoon. And to have it Done, I had to be Off the Blood Thinner (Plavix) for 5-Days Prior to the Dental Work.
SO HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED . . . In my Last Blood Test – More than a Month Ago – My Blood Sugars were Precipitously High, Mostly because I Gained Considerable Weight, because like Almost all of Us, the China Virus Restricted Many Types of Activities. And Because of it All – I felt the Increase in my Blood Sugars through my Body – Sluggishness, Weight Over My Eyes, Fatigue – Etc.
I Also Have To Confess That I Was Eating Poorly On Top Of It All.
SO – I Decided to Get Serious, and for one Month (Still Ongoing) I Cut-Out all Carbohydrates (Bread) and all Forms of Junk & Comfort Food. And Lo & Behold, in the Space of Just One Month, I Lost 15-Pounds. And as I Checked Today, my Blood Sugars were Normal.
Because I Lost so Much Weight so Quickly, and Because I went off the Plavix & Because I Stress Non-Stop over Politics (American, Canadian, Israeli – Etc), and Because of the Violence throughout Democrat-Led American Cities (Also Leaking Into Canada), and Because I Put so Much into Research & Writing, and Because Anne, Stryker, April the Cat & I Most Probably will Not be Able to spend this Winter in the United States . . . And Because this BLOG (Galganov.com) has been Dealing with a Torrent of Hacker Assaults . . . The Stress Got To Me.
I Needed To Know What To Do Medically . . . I Was Too Dizzy & Nauseous to go to the Dentist. And I wanted to Know what to Do about Not Taking The Plavix, and if Not Taking the Plavix was the Reason for the Way I Felt . . . Simple Enough For A Family Doctor To Answer?
It would be Simple Enough for a Doctor to Answer, if There Was an Available Doctor who Knew my History to Answer it. But in the Era of Free Medicine, which Isn’t all that Free, there are Not enough Doctors who are Readily Available to offer Help & Advice . . . And I’m Not Certain If Tele-Medicine Isn’t Just One Step Down From Internet Medicine.
There Was No Way I Felt Good Enough To Be Driven To The Local Hospital. And there was No Way that I Wanted to Sit for Hours Waiting My Turn in the Emergency Ward. What Anne & I Finally Did . . . was to Contact our Pharmacist, Not For Advice, but Rather for Information on Certain Deleterious Effects of Not Taking Plavix.
And if my Pharmacist Knew if Taking Gravol (Over-The-Counter Dizziness & Nauseous Pill) would be a Problem with my Other Medications. Thank God For My Pharmacist – But That’s Not The Way It’s Supposed To Work.
I Rested Yesterday . . . Watched some News, Read some Websites, and by Late Afternoon I Started to Come Around. Sitting on a Recliner, I Napped until Biden’s Acceptance Speech, so that when I Watched-It, I would be Fully Awake & Aware of Everything Biden had to Say.
1 – Like Just About Everyone Else . . . I was Waiting for Biden to Screw Something-Up. And Except for One Time, as Biden Stared at the TelePrompter like a Deer Caught Staring at the Headlights of an Oncoming Car, Biden Read What Others Wrote For Him.
2 – As Expected, the LEFTIST Media, Including the Fox News Pundits Were-All-A-Gaga over Biden’s Great Words & His Delivery.
3 – But I Wasn’t Impressed . . . How Could I be Impressed with about 30-Minutes of Bafflegab, when the Greatest Expectation for Biden Wasn’t what Biden Had to Say, but Rather, that Biden was Able to Say it Without a Major Screw-Up, In Biden’s Heavily Rehearsed – Phony Soft Obama-Type Voice.
4 – What I Heard In Biden’s Acceptance Speech Was Platitudinal . . . A Lecture on How Bad America Is – How Bad Trump Is – How Evil All The People Must Be Who Voted For Trump – But Biden Was Going To Fix It All . . . How? Biden Didn’t Say.
I Don’t Remember If Biden Said This Last Night . . . But I Heard Biden say it Recently, How Exceptional America Is – But I also Clearly Remember Biden’s Boss (Obama) Telling the Entire World on One or More of his Apology Tours . . . That America Is Not An Exceptional Country, yet Biden Kisses the Ground Obama Walks-On.
I Fear that Enough Americans have Become so Dumbed-Down by Academia and the Media . . . that Many of them will Buy this LEFTIST Claptrap without Understanding that Platitudes are Nothing More than Words with Empty Value.
Biden and the LEFT can use Whatever Amount of Empty Slogans (Verbiage) & Words to Try & Convince the Voters that America has Become a Dystopian Society Bereft of a Decent Future & Values Under the Presidency of Donald Trump, when in Reality, No Matter How Hard the Mainstream Media & Social Media Try to Shield the People from the Truth . . . The Truth Always Shines Through.
And I Also Believe . . . that Enough Americans are so Frightened at the Possibility that the United States of America Might Go Down in Defeat to the Forces of Communism, that the Conservative & Independent Turnout for Conservative Republican Candidates will be Massive.
And As Poorly As I Felt Yesterday . . . Is How Reinvigorated I Feel Today, After Watching The Biden Fairy-Tale Last Night.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
