In Topic: After death, you’re aware that you’ve died

The brain relies on sensory input to function properly, deprived of inputs, it starts to invent its own simulation. This is nothing more than a brain crying out for some information and then trying to fill in the gaps to explain what's going on. Doesn't mean they're aware of death, they're just trying to make sense of things.

I know we've migrated, but I have seen this phenomenon in real time. Even within death, the brain fires. Truly, it can go back to concerns for the people you love. TRUTH- I have seen the fight to live and the title fight against what came next. Shit- it happens and although I would love to deny it, I had Mr's face in my hands. Honestly, I tried to explain it to him that I would be ok- always his main concern. I don't give a damn about what the ME and the Police said- I got his last breath, and last word. A little piece of energy released, and then it's gone. So it goes.

The brain is the most interesting piece of the human body. We still know only a tiny piece of it. Peace to you, and if the site goes dark, please come to the new one. Even though I've argued against you, you have great thoughts.

Nearly all intramuscular shots have the potential to hurt, at the site OR the entire arm. Great tip: MOVE that area, after you're cleared to go. A lot. I have no idea if it helps distribute, only that it helps the muscle recover. Doesn't mean that the other symptoms won't present, only that the muscular stuff goes away.

And- I prefer he stay in the dark. Yes. He's a financial criminal, among other things. But I prefer him to go into accounting Hell on Earth, and disappear. ///////the less said about him. the better.

Is email making us miserable? An interesting take about the increasing demands on workers and how it affects health. Add Zoom calls in (and all the rest) and maybe it's time to act like the French.

Thanks, guys. I fared fairly well. In addition to the cluster!@% that is simply TX, we had historic lows followed by historic highs, within less than a week. Minus 9 to 85 in 4 days. The thaw out was not good. God Bless my house- nearly all was fine, save for a leak through a downstairs HVAC register due to the rapid condition changes. FUUUUUCK. I had to turn my water off at the main, for further investigation. Then the rubber hit the road- My son and I bugged out for hotels to ride it out. The cold during no power was ridden out, but this was no longer acceptable. He's here temporarily to help me with physical issues and I am certain keep a watch on Mom. I've heard from more than one source that he is terrified that I will finally have a breakdown. Eh, kiddo? I'm stronger than you think!

Back to virus/superspreader. Turns out, Gov JERK in chief didn't even bother to consult with the majority of our state's health experts before lifting mask mandate. Further confusing, he's still encouraging Texans to wear masks and stay safe, even though he just lifted all controls. WTF?? Pivot, CYA. Mandates for all including business regs go away March 10. Through some conservative conduits. I have sent him a message: Dear Gov: If I or my son get hurt from your mismanagement, you and the State of TX will face epic, epic lawsuits. LOL- I have a former legal partner of his on my side. Yep- PG hasn't changed. I work all sides.

I consider myself lucky. The small issues have been taken care of with lightning speed. Insurance process has been seamless, and the truth is that I have resources to do whatever is necessary to protect. I really do have meditation moments daily for the millions who don't. It is a true mess in this state, and the "leadership" is lacking. God bless Tx, indeed.

EDIT: Beeze- you out there? OK? Check in.
