The discomfort doesn’t go away–and I have an aversion to medical doctors. For half my lifetime, I practiced holistic health. This past year (due to the Coronavirus), I’ve neglected my health!! (Lack of exercise and absence of nutritional meals.) My strongest pain reliever was Aleve but I suspect it was contributing to intestinal pain. My “natural remedy” revolves around my passion for (1) Ancestry, (2) my fondness for my blog (journal), and (3) my love of clipart. Climbing the family tree is as challenging as a Rubik Cube, and jigsaw puzzles. It is so engrossing, I compare it to having a tiger by the tail. I’ve earned a gold medal for devotion to my sport, and hard work. ~~ I don’t want to put the vaccine into my body (I don’t take flu shots either). The stronger Coronavirus Delta-variant may catch up with me and I’ll be dead before the end of the year. I’m going out “happy” because of my mental gymnastics—and I’m leaving information that will be accessed for generations.
