I check my blood pressure every single day. I have my own blood pressure device. It runs in the family, but hasn't affected me. Mine was 117 over 78 today. And that was after two cups of "make your hair stand up" coffee. Yours?Remember that statement when you've got cancer or have a heart attack....
My blood pressure at my last check up was 124/72 and I'm well within bmi and just recently ran a half marathon.I check my blood pressure every single day. I have my own blood pressure device.

Cancer. Not worried about it. The men in the family die from hearts, one woman from cancer. Should I get it, I'll deny treatment and swallow a bullet. That's my outlook on the Big C. About the same as I feel about the beer virus.
I've known several people that got cancer. None survived, even with chemo and radiation. So why lose sleep over it? If I get it, I don't want to know about it. Cause the hopelessness will just make it worse. I'm 58 years old. I've lived a long and good life thus far. If I die tomorrow, so be it. I'll roll with it.
I spent the entire day out riding my Suzuki M109R. Every bit of sunlight I could. Gorgeous day. You all? Spend it all on lockdown? So sad. There is still no mandatory lockdown here. Don't wear a fucking mask or gloves either. None are mandatory. Recommended only. I don't accept recommendations lightly.
well hope everyone is doing well and both staying healthy and hopefully not getting financially pinched by all this. Pretty wild times. Our work is in a mass-telework status, so my wife and I are working from home. She is going stir crazy, I'm loving it lol. I've been on travel for 12 weeks out of the past 4-5 months, and 6+ weeks of that out at sea, so it's nice being home for a change. A lot to juggle telework + homeschooling + homedaycare, but making the best of it. It is a little weird though, I don't really need to drive anywhere, so I've literally driven 2 times in the last 5 weeks lol. Hoping workload chills out a bit so I have some time to get the trucks out of winter hibernation and go on some cruises, but won't really complain there since we're really fortunate and our line of work isn't really impacted by this like so many others. Definitely hoping things work out for folks that are impacted.
Also holy cow, give it a rest cbxer, or start a new thread to go into all your blabber about your self education, or your self proclaimed immunity to everything, or your 17 nicknames for the television, I can't scroll past them fast enough when trying to just catch up on how others are making out lol.
I saw a cartoon comic on fb the other day and wish I saved it, because it concisely summed up the idiocy of the masses perfectly. It was something along the lines of the projections say this could infect X amount of people and kill X amount if we don't take action, however there is no way to tell how bad this would be if NO mitigations were put in place (social distancing guidelines, masks, closing down big events, limiting crowd sizes, etc.), all we can do is measure those with what was done. Yet the key point of the comic was, when those mitigations are put in place and infection rates and deaths are lower than original projections without doing that, people get all bent out of shape going "see, it wasn't that bad afterall, why did we even do all this stupid social distancing and masks crap?".....uhhh, high liklihood those things are directly responsible for the lower rates than projections.
The other thing is people clearly don't understand how things spread/grow. They look at an infection rate at day 1 or day 10, do some quick math against whatever to say it's only X percentage assuming that's as far as it'll ever get, and that's not that bad....yet fail to consider exponential level of growth and by day 20, 30, 40, it may not just be 2x, 3x, 4x more, it could be 200x, 2000x, 20000x more.
