Hysteria is a Killer

Within a few weeks life as we know it has completely changed here in the US. Most of the world has changed. All for the Chinese virus, coronavirus, COVID-19. Or, is this change actually from the panic and fear that the media and some of the leaders and powers that be, have infected us with? 

The virus, I can only assume, by what I am being told by the media and those repeating what they have heard, is highly contagious and can cause some major medical, and possibly death for some. I don’t know anyone who has been diagnosed with this virus. Though,I may have had this virus a couple of months ago, as did a few others I know. I had a cough. I was wheezie, to the point that I borrowed my sons inhaler. Never again! I had fever a couple of times. This lasted about 5 days in different degrees.  Always feeling well in the AM and then declining in the PM, I thought it was allergies, until I didn’t. 

I do know that media has presented this virus as the bubonic plague. Media has spread fear and panic by leading stories with how many have died from cornovirus, without presenting how many are living having had the virus. No one is presenting the real numbers of population vs infected. No one is telling that the stats are askew, because so many may have had this virus, like myself, months ago and it came and went like any cold does.  It is not being told that the majority of those dying are older and would have died if they had had a cold, the flu, the Chinese flu, or a stomach bug. There are also those of us with auto immune diseases , RA, Celiac, Lupus, Diabetes, Thyroid disease… or compromised immunities from Cancer treatment and such, we are susceptible to catching this thing and having a hard time with it. No one is reporting that the strong and healthy are either not getting sick or are mildly ill with this. No one is speaking of the countries (South Africa, Uganda, ) who regularly take malaria medications, are not being infected by this virus.  

Fear and panic is what is shutting down retail businesses and hotels. Fear and panic has closed schools, canceled plays, and sporting events, and tests, and graduations. Fear and panic has emptied the shelves of toilet paper. Fear and panic has closed theaters. Fear and panic has closed the doors of churches. Fear and panic has my husband and all his coworkers sitting at home having online meetings for 2 weeks. Fear and panic lost my son his job

No person collapsed from the coronavirus in any public place and was wheeled out by people in hazmat suits. I have seen a person describing the feeling of drowning, from the pneumonia. Frightening. This man also described being healed completely with the hydoroc. Within 24 hours of taking it. Another described her symptoms the same as what I myself went through  felt badly for a couple of nights when I had fever, and the cough was irritating, but the ‘regular’ flu was much worse. 

The damages and hurt I have seen is from the fear and panic. The hysteria. I have seen the repercussions of the fear and panic with my son being laid off. I heard the pain in his bosses voice as she described her paycut and the worry for all those hourly coworkers who were laid off. I know of others who are closing their business doors, wondering if they can open them again. Those that had their retirement in stocks that the bottom dropped out of, are in fear of never recovering. Will the banks be lenient with the mortgage and car payment? I have seen the panic in the grocery store as people stared at empty shelves.“WE should have stocked up. Does someone know something we don’t know? Why are all the beans and toilet paper gone? “ 

I have heard the disappointment in my granddaughters voice when she told of the play that was canceled in 4 weeks, that was to star in. The seniors in high schools all over the nation have been dreaming and working towards the day of walking across that stage. That is a memory that will never be had for them or their parents. The disappointment and sadness for those who burying their loved ones, alone, for the fear. Wedding ceremonies canceled. Looking at that new grandchild through the nursery windows. All lost, because of fear and panic. 

There is really nothing to fear, but fear itself. God tells us Fear Not and Be Not Afraid  at least 365 times directly. And then more than that subtly. This world is fallen, we will get sick. We will die. Dying is part of life. We have to die from this world to get to the next. Not knowing what the next is is where this fear is generated, by Satan. To know that after this world we step into the perfect presence of God removes all fear. Satan does not want you to have that assurance. 

So, If you are sick, stay home.  If you are susceptible to infections, do what you have been doing stay out of crowds. When you are out in the world, don’t touch everything, wash your hands, be aware of spreading germs and picking them up. Go to work. Go to school. Go to exercise class.Go camping. Go with your spouse on a hotel getaway. Go to church. Go to God and get right with Him. 

It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. Deuteronomy:8

I am here, I am here, I am here

Just as the cry of The Who’s in Whoville, “We are here. We ARE here. We are HERE.” I say as small and insignificant I may be, I AM HERE. 

My blog input has not shown this of late though.  I have three blogs I don’t input into regularly, thus making each most neglected, Deletewheat.com, TerminateCPS@wordpress.com and this one, Im not so Petty (christypetty@wordpress.com)

Life has taken priority, as well as my lack of prioritizing. Then it is just hard to make myself sit down and blog, to a world that really does not pay attention.  Then to chose which blog to enter my thoughts into, to be ignored, adds more to my doing less.

A few days ago, I  caused a car accident. I totaled my car and involved two other vehicles. Also I concussed my brain a bit, whiplashed my neck, swelled up a few bursa’s, and now suffer from seatbelt syndrome. All of this, and  the ticket states it was a ‘Minor’ accident.  It all seems pretty major to me.

I lost my favorite car of all time. My brain is stupid right now, searching for words and mixing up reality,TV and dreams on a regular basis.  My back, gut, knee, hip and head all ache majorly. The cost of this mistake of mine is major- my car, is gone and won’t be replaced, it was older and not worth the full coverage, so no funds coming in to replace it.  $200 for the ticket,  plus $99 to defer it, so it wont go on driving record. My insurance rates will go up, even without the ticket on my record, for repairing 2 other vehicles, and my bit of medical I received. This is all MAJOR, to me. hN37pbTrTyWIDeH670jabQxEvMnib+Rx+MHqnqQCdgWA

I suppose the criteria for Major would be if someone were delivered to the hospital via ambulance or had been killed.  And that, should God have not intervened, could have happened. To me.  If I had been a bit slower, or the truck that hit me a bit faster, the meeting of our vehicles could have caused me quite a bit more damage. Or if the kids in the other vehicle had not been buckled… Thank God this was deemed minor. Because WE are all here.

In Whoville, Jo Jo, the smallest of The Who’s is who eventually saved them all.

 The lad cleared his throat and he shouted out, “YOPP!”

Horton the huge elephant that was seen by all could not convince anyone of the Who’s. All the population of Whoville, minus Jo Jo, could not be heard. Then, the final addition of just the one, to step up ,even when he did not think it would matter. It did.

I, too often, think my efforts to rid the world of gluten are wasted. I base my unpopularity on how much more recognition another ,who hocks gluten free living, has.  I see the power CPS and corrupt courts have, and I question if I can make any impact, in terminating CPS. Then God reminds me… He YOPPS at me. Shows me, when I don’t intend to, I do make an impression. Literally.  Each and everyone of us make an impact. Negative and positive. Sometimes all by ourselves, sometimes we are all that is needed to help the masses to be heard.

My wreck was a negative. I made a mistake. I was ‘heard’ though.  I am significant, to do good and bad.  I need to concentrate on acting and making my presence to be for the good. To YOPP, without wondering if I will be heard. God will use whatever I say and do to his good, even if what I do is wrong. I just have to YOPP, and He will do the rest.

Because, I am here, for a reason, and God knows.

Im Gonna Eat Worms.

IMG_1635Nobody loves me. Everybody hates me. Im gonna eat some worms. Fat ones.Skinny ones. Oh how they wiggle and squirm.

Finally I am bothering to check in to my blog(S). I split my original Delete Wheat, into two. Adding this blog, so yew’s guy’s could go and be all business and gluten free at one and then all up close and personal with this one. I want to develop my ‘business’ of gluten free coaching and such more, and figure to be more professional I need to remove my rants and raves. Though to get to the ‘me’ blog it is just a right hand click away on the Delete Wheat site.

Since the change I think I have posted only once on each. Not so good. And I wonder why no one visits me anymore. I have said nothing new!!

But you would think some newbies would have taken time out of their busy schedules. Left their family gatherings at Thanksgiving. Put aside the Christmas candle lighting. Ignored the family that traveled miles to visit. Put that project with the deadline looming aside, another day, to read MY thoughts, MY opinions, My expertise in gluten free living. But Nooooooo. No one has darkened the door of my ‘I’m Not So Petty’ site.

You HATE ME. But I will change that. Soon. You will be reading both deletewheat.com and christypetty.wordpress.com everyday, and will be begging me to do more!! I know it.

Now that I think about it…. Eating worms is not necessary. You may not actually hate me. Besides it is really really cold out side and I don’t think there is a worm to be found.
