This is what I know about women who voted for Trump:
Very many of them will gladly accept an Anti-abortion SC justice- even if she will destroy their own diabetic children's ability to afford insulin.20 million Americans will lose their health insurance in the middle of November if Trump's nominee is confirmed. During a pandemic of an infection with chronic long term effects.
It's mind boggling.
Sherman said that if you find yourself in a high-risk scenario in which a someone sneezes or coughs near you, “Immediately exhale to avoid inhaling droplets or aerosols. Purse your lips to make the exhaling last longer. Turn your head fully away from the person and begin walking.”
This method won’t definitively protect you from COVID-19, but it could reduce how much of the virus you’re exposed to if the person who coughs or sneezes happens to be contagious.
I don't know why I haven't thought of it before. It seems like I should have...
Other people have thought of it before, though. There are some studies.
Oral vitamin D supplementation reduces chronic rhinitis, irritation in the nose. I have been telling y'all that for years.
And low vitamin D is associated with COVID, which enters and attaches through the nose.
Makes sense. So, finally my brain put them together...
A few experiments have been done with inhalable vitamin D spray, and it does pass through the membranes of the nose and lungs, raising serum levels. Most of the spray on the market is for the mouth though, and has sweeteners and other stuff in the mix.
I didn't see any articles just wiping VitD oil up the nostrils with a swab. Topical VitD has been tested on nasal cell cultures though, and there was no toxicity.
So I tried that. And it's lovely. I like it a lot.
I've been wiping olive oil up my nostrils for years. It has helped my breathing so much.
This week I put olive oil up the left nostril and VitD oil up the right.
Right side definitely wins. Way less inflammation and cracking and dripping.
(3 drops on a swab tip, stick it up there, wipe it around. Use separate swab for other nostril.)
I'm not inhaling the oil into the sinuses, it's probably not great for that, but I will try to figure out a snortable water soluble mist next.

Yes, that's to be expected.
He's an old man who's been isolated for years and practices terrible personal and dental hygiene.
He's finally gotten to the point that his lower rear molars have cracked. This interferes with the auditory nerve and distorts ordinary noises.
Mine broke during a septic episode caused by antibiotics. My jaws were clenched for weeks.
My air conditioner whispered to me.
The windshield wipers in my car made siren sounds.
The blinker noise was unbearable.
My teeth never hurt.
Yeah, he needs a dentist to examine his head, thank you very much.

In 1962, he spent about a week in an airplane on a tarmac in Florida, waiting to see if he would have to bomb Cuba.
"I lived in that machine with an atomic bomb strapped to my ass."That's how he put it.
He was lucky that John F. Kennedy was president. Because my father was a good soldier.
