My normal voice is low. It’s hard to breathe, especially at night. My chest hurts so much at night I feel like I’m drowning. I cough up phlegm a lot. I lost my job because...

    Sick Canadian children are pouring into the pediatric emergency rooms in Montreal. Hundreds are brought in every day. Unfortunately, they are often so ill that they have to be hospitalized. Parents camp out overnight, waiting for 16, 20, or even 24 hours for their children to be seen, depending on the priority they are assigned during triage. Stretchers line hallways. Medical staff is working around the clock to care for more and more sick children, reports the Montreal Gazette. ‘Busiest than I can remember Emergency room doctor Suzanne Vaillancourt told the newspaper that she had never experienced this before. “It’s...

    Medical assistance in dying (MAID) has been available in Canada since 2016 and is set to expand in March 2023, extending eligibility to those with a mental illness. Bill C-7 would allow individuals seeking MAID to apply solely on the basis of a mental disorder. Prior to the bill’s passage, MAID eligibility was based on having a “grievous and irremediable medical condition,” according to a report from the Canadian government on the practice. Creighton School of Medicine professor Charles Camosy said Wednesday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” the bill would allow “mature minors” to be euthanized by state doctors without the...

    Getting less than five hours of sleep in mid-to-late life could be linked to an increased risk of developing at least two chronic diseases.

    The following is for informational purposes only. Take it with a grain of salt. You are reading it on the internet after all. Also, I wanted to document it, so I thought this would be as good a place as any. There seems to be another Covid-like disease going around our area. I just spent almost a week in the hospital with a toddler family member and now I have it. Rhinovirus is what they are calling it. One nurse called it “rhinorona.” This one seems to affect children the hardest. I predict shutdowns after the election and another non-vaccine...

    Supporters of a plan to expand benefits for millions of veterans exposed to toxic substances and fumes are furious after a surprising defeat in a Senate procedural vote left the bill in limbo. Veterans advocates and lawmakers who support the bill are vowing to keep fighting for its passage, framing Wednesday night's shocking development as a delay rather than a defeat. Still, it's a delay they say could cost cancer-stricken veterans their lives as they wait for care and should be blamed on a group of Republican senators they described as "liars," "hypocrites" and "cowards." "How are these people human?...
