This Week Sucked

Just not feeling it this week. My personal health condition is unchanged, at least for right now. Taking my medicines and hope to have my next cardiac ablation scheduled later this week.  Which is a two-edged sword since I have to go off the meds for five days to clean out my system so they can find the problem heart cells and zap the little bastards with electricity. Of course, going off the meds means I might have another incident before I have the procedure.

On an entirely different note, the nation had to live through a conservative republican terrorist sending pipe bombs through the mail this week. Nothing signifies the utter corruption of American politics when all manner of Trump-supporting MAGAts openly believing those crimes were some Democratic-inspired hoax. And just to add another insult to an already injured country, another conservative wacko decided to shoot up a synagogue in Pennsylvania.

What comes close to leaving me in despair is that the Orange Bastard is still out there trying his best to burn the country down.

It was an awful week. It drove me to, finally, turning off tv news entirely and running a few DVDs on repeat.

Hope the health thing gets better. This is a very few words for you.

It's just so very depressing. I don't blame you for not feeling it - I'm going to go bury my head in yarn.

Wishing you a speedy recovery, my friend.

Found this appropo:
But, as the historian Tacitus said, “Nothing in human affairs is more unstable and precarious than power unsupported by its own strength.”

I hope by now your next cardiac ablation is behind you and was a full success. Let us know how it went.

As to politics, I've found the last two years not just depressing (if that wasn't enough), I've felt highly stressed the entire time.

I am just getting around to read this... it seems so long ago that pipe bombs were showing up addressed to Democrats—in just a little over two weeks, too much has happened. I hope your heart proceedures went well.
