  1. ?What? To heck with flattening the curve, protect the 401-Ks & thin the population?!?!?! Keep in mind with the shortages the very people who can save our lives (not a good time for  heart attacks etc) will be the largest part of the reduced population. Less PPE, fewer to provide healthcare, less population but by George the financial markets will look good. World gone mad indeed.

    Today sucked less then yesterday. I wont express in words what I've witnessed so far in the last 10 days. I hope we start to learn to be less selfish as a society. 

    Yipee! Glad you had a better day! Hope other's are doing the same.


  3. I understand. Met an elderly couple at the end of yet another empty bread aisle. He looked shocked, "No bread, no meat..." she looked at him "What are we going to do?" apparent it was their 1st time out. Oddly there have been no local TV reports to inform folks of food shortages here. Enjoy that beer!! Rant if you need to folks.


  4. Rod H we love you for it. Nothing could have prepared us but being prepared for something similar. Part of the problem here seems to be the announcement Sunday the public schools were closed. One County over 97% get school lunches, not everyone has access to the internet, nor do they all have computers. Those will suffer the most, not only educationally. If anyone communicates with Major Tom or the crew in Houston please be sure to ask where we can get protein pills. Might as well keep a sense of humour.


  5. Agree! Wal-Mart isn't reserving the 1st hour for elderly/disabled. I'm no match for a mom with 3 kids instructed on where to go, what to get & where to wait for mom with the buggy to fill. Try again tomorrow, my last MRE for dinner tonight.


  6. Our grocery stores open only for elderly & disabled for the 1st hour. Hopefully folks will regain or gain some sense of community & neighbor will help neighbor again.


  7. I'd like to stay home, Wal-Mart 7a, wouldn't have gone inside if I had food, witnessed the bread aisle & fled before seeing bloodshed. So tomorrow high risk me goes out for the 3rd time. Keep in mind I buy 1 month of food in 1 day every month.


  8. I buy groceries for the month (fixed income). Wal-Mart had no bread, no meats, no canned meats, no cheese, no milk, no eggs, no frozen dinners, no milk, no toilet paper & no paper towels. I called when home. Store is normally open 24/7. Now closes at 9 to restock. I was told to be there when they open at 7a & hopefully they'll have something I can afford. A BIG shout out to those who have the resources to buy ALL of the groceries & leave NONE for the most vulnerable population. I live in a food desert, compounded by panic & greed. I have transportation, those who do not made long trips & came home empty handed too.


  9. Good thing you ordered the Cluster O2 mask (bigger bag), you may need to go to a higher flow regulator. Many of us use minimum 25 lpm regulators from W.T. Farley Amazon etc.

  10. Hearing that air concerns me. Turn the oxygen off at the tank, disconnect your mask & hose, turn your regulator to 0 & turn the oxygen on. If you hear air, turn off the oxygen, bleed the regulator before removing it by turning the regulator to anything but 0 for a few secs, remove the regulator, check your washer & try again. If you need a washer or still hear air, you should call your supplier.


  11. If your tank gets low on oxygen that can reduce the effectiveness of your aborts. It can take a bit to perfect the  oxygen technique that works for you, so be patient. Get on as soon as you feel a hit coming, stay on after the abort is successful. Oh, a Kip-10 is much harder to abort. Most with CH don't need 6mg injections, many who use them split the injections. Best overall to use the oxygen to abort & save the injections for emergencies. Sumatriptan can cause more problems including increases in frequency, duration & severity (to name a few). The energy shots/drinks or even just caffeine can really speed up your abort times.
