And my one pain med, Celebrex, I am told I must be off entirely for a week before my first vax dose, and at least a week after, lest the NSAID interfere with the immune response.
Yes, and how do they suggest I function???
I'm already half-dosing, and it hurts, so.... eek. And as we're not yet to my tier (or close_) here.... I guess it's time to find out how well all that "just don't think about your pain" stuff reallllly works. (Insert your choice of laugh here!)
Today in 1199, King Richard, "the Lionheart", of England took an arrow during a siege of an enemy in France ----- and eventually died. Richard was, in fact, the reason his kid brother John ended up being reviled as a king. Richard spent so much time away from England on Crusade, or fighting French enemies, that the English barons ran amok during his reign. When John got the throne, England's Crown was bankrupt, the nation in chaos, and he cracked down on it all. John was not an evil king, in fact, but one who inherited a shi*storm, and demanded rule of law return. Sadly, he was vilified, and he was rebelled against, leading to the Magna Carta ----- a document credited with guaranteeing English rights. (But only if you were were a baron, earl, etc. Otherwise, still screwed.) John was noted for his mercy at the royal assizes for commoners ------ in one notable case, a boy was skipping stones across a pond, the rock hit someone and by pure bad luck caused enough injury to kill the person. The kid was gonna hang, but John said "No, it's mischance, let the poor boy go." ....
Today in 1830, the first Church of Latter Day Saints (mormons) was founded by Joseph Smith and five others in western New York state. Eventually, the Mormons settled modern Utah, and remained notorious for their resistance to federal law officers, and still mandate every home have a stockpile of food, water, etc., against.... Well, whatever. Despite my asking, I am never told, as I am not "one of the church". (Thanks, cuz.)
And in 1917, the US entered World War One on the side of the Allies (England, France, etc.). Within two-and-a-half years, that war would be over, the Spanish flu pandemic had hit, and it was pretty much a crappy time to be alive. Good chance of dying, basically.
