A ‘thought’ that seems to take on particular significance when we’re unwell: fear 😨

[From post healthunlocked.com/nras/pos... ]

.

.

"Aside:

We all ‘hear’ horror stories 👻 💀 . . .

. . . people get hit by buses 🚌 because they left the house 🏡 . . .

. . . people die in plane crash because they flew ✈️ . . .

.

Yet, we don’t seem(?) to hear much about people not looking both ways 👀 before crossing the road 🛣 . . .

or the infinitesimal probability 📉 of dying by plane crash? 🤔

.

• Wondering how common ‘hospitalisation 🏥 by neti pot’ is for the immunocompromised 🤧 ? (What’s ‘statistical probability’ 📊 ?)

• Also wondering, how common is it for the immunocompromised to not (routinely, scrupulously?) practice proper hygiene/ safety precautions given known vulnerabilities? 🤔

.

.

On a ‘contemplative’ note:

"Una vida con miedo es como la vida medias."

.

("A life lived in fear is a life half-lived." 😳 🤔 )"

.

😌 🙏 🍀 🌺 🌞

Hi suzannedale - Not really - I've been working on the reduction of my allergies in general with the Minocycline, but don't really have anything else to offer.. So sorry
