When I was a child my mother always would read to me. It opened up a world of imagination that is still with me.
As I got a little older we went and got my first library card. I picked out so many books she made me put half back.
At age 7 she gave me an auto biography to read and then I would write a report on it. We moved up to different cultures in the world and this practice developed my love of different places and people and history. I should include acceptance in that sentence.
When I went into high school I was able to interact with all the groups (etc the druggies). It enriched my life and continues to this day. I love to study people and places.
I continued the process with my daughter who grew up and traveled the world as a model for Elite. She also was ready for different lifestyles.
My favorite book was one put out on the white house after JFK was president and Jackie revamped the inside. My lifelong dream was to visit the White House. I was thrilled when I finally made the trip in my 20's.
I don't want to offend you in any way. I have asthma, chronic bronchitis and COPD. If you just sat two tables away from me in a diner or coffee shop I would be so affected "I" have to go leave. Smokers forget the smoke penetrates your hair down to your shoes.
You have the right to destroy your own body. But why should my outing be spoiled because I have these breathing issues and have never been a smoker?
Smokers have never been allowed in my car or home.
You can be witty and loads of fun we won't be friends because of your smoking. It effects me that much.
When I was younger and doing the bar,let's go dancing etc- it would enrage me to get home late and have to put my clothes in the garage and go shower and wash my hair.
Let's not forget the medical issues down the road. It raises the ins cost for all.
My town has made all public buildings non smoking. I still have to walk through the could to get inside. . Now I'm smelling like cigs and I don't like it.
As I say your right to destroy your health but not mine or my nt out.
Thanks for reading.View Thread
I go in with a list starting at the top with my biggest issues. Then I write out which scripts I might need. My peeve is I limit it to 3-5 things it depends on how bad I've been.He ignores part of the list.
In the last to years he has never reviewed any blood work, just copies me AND I have high un controlled BP and they don't always take my reading.
The weight I just say every other time, I'll pass you see me ballooning up and nobody's checking why.
