A Humanitarian Problem
short-sighted at best – unconscionable at worst

This might be the most important post I have ever written
(out of 500+ information-dense articles).
It applies to every single one of us,
so I hope you will take the time to read it all.

A tragic implication of Boiling Frog Syndrome

As I began in an article as part of the Executive Functioning Series, two Mondays ago [How well do you REALLY function?], when things decline gradually we tend to accommodate the accumulation of difficulties until we are struggling to cope and practically desperate for help.

Before I continue with a Series of articles designed to describe and discuss EF struggles, what’s involved, and explain what you can do to mitigate the effects (before, during and after they develop)

What’s your strongest sense?

Sense of smell then comes hearing.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

Sleepy.  Along with the other little mentioned Dwarfs named Tired and Exhausted.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?

42. As you can see I was a my Peak Performance. My hair and skin were perfect. My hair as you can see I had Locs was all the way down to my butt. I was pretty. I had plenty of energy. I looked and felt great. No aches, pains or disabilities. Guys liked me. Boy how things have changed!! LOL!!

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.  [Remember:  This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.]

I used to wish I could be like the old TV show On the Road with Charles Kuralt with Zora Neale Hurston thrown in for good measure! LOL!!

The only job I want to see or experience is Retirement. The hell with jobs and careers. My whole goal is to disengage and disconnect from society. Made all my contributions when I was a young woman. Now it’s time to be lazy. I wanna Waste Away in Margaritaville as Jimmy Buffet sang!!

Uniform

I wear a uniform in my current job as a Museum Security Guard but just like I cannot ever mention the name of my museum workplace Nor am I allowed to post photos of me in my museum uniform.  However my time in the military prepared me to deal with many of the nastier members of the general public.

United States Army Veteran

November 1977 to November 1981

Units:  569th PSC, Augsburg, Germany  & the 101st Airborne Division, Ft. Campbell, KY

BTW I was Chairborne not Airborne. Women were not allowed in combat in those days. Also some of these Cadences are a little risque. If you are overly sensitive don’t listen.
