It should not take a head injury

*after personally sustaining a head injury & coma*

to figure this out...









A Satirical Blog

*(utilizing articles discussing facts)*

By:  Susan MeeLing

After the head injury caused a coma while I learned how to deal with the headaches, migraines, cognitive disorders, memory problems, and other medical conditions I went from College Algebra with Trigonometry & Calculus down to 2nd grade math.  Here is how logic works for someone like me::

~  It took awhile for the doctor's recommendation to use sticky notes, to help remember.

~  It took several months to realize sticky notes moved, let alone to remember to speak with the doctor.

~  After I finally remembered to ask the doctor about the note problem, notebooks were recommended.

~  When I could remember to pick up a notebook, it took a long time to learn similar to sticky notes, notebooks are not always where they were placed.

~  After I was able to organize the notebooks over several months I still had not learned notebooks are not always readily available, at the necessary time.

~  When I remembered to speak with the doctor about the notebook problem the doctor had few other suggestions, to assist memories better.

~  After several events and adding up sticky note and notebook location problems, I realized my skin goes everywhere I do.

~  Wanting my tattoos to only be for me and not for public consumption I started the ink on my legs, able to hide easier.

~  It would not be until many tattoos and several years later I would realize my memory problems were usually not as bad when wearing shorts, capri pants, or a skirt.

~  Between 3-5 years after my first tattoo I had the first tattoo completed on my arms, and my memory has slowly progressed towards an easier memory jolt.



When I say "it should not take a head injury to figure this out" it is partially in humor from personal experiences, towards understanding.


If I can laugh at my mistakes after recognizing and dealing with them, so can you.


You have the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom I lack in order to put everything together to fix the problems seen with abilities I do not have. 


Utilize the information within the blog to find genuine repairs and instead of complaining of the "hurtful" commentary, prevent the issues from reoccurring.


Then again, it should not take a head injury to figure that one out.

Does it take a head injury to figure this out about prescription medications, overdose deaths, MMJ,

Each picture below has a link to the article in reference to each portion of this blog referencing different aspects of prescription medication, Medical Marijuana, overdose deaths related to the two, herbal supplements, and taxes in reference to MMJ.

At the end is the summary, of

my opinion.

Each picture above has a link to the article in reference to each portion of this blog about the number of deaths associated with prescription medications, veteran deaths associated to prescription medications, MMJ, herbal supplements, and taxes.

Now at the end is the summary, here is my opinion.

* Does it take a head injury to understand the lack of deaths (with many hospitalizations) from Medical or recreational Marijuana compared to prescription pills or alcohol related deaths, should be a positive trait?

* Should it take a head injury to figure out the list of possible side effects for MMJ or recreational use are far less damaging side effects, than the prescription medications available?

(migraine medication causing headaches; ulcer medication causing upset stomach; stress medication causing suicide; etc.)

* Should it take a head injury to ask all candidates what they will do in reference to veterans who have found MMJ to be far better than the pill cocktails sent home, or whom have found a balance using both scientific medicine along with natural medicine?

* Should it take a head injury to figure out the FDA does not regulate herbal supplements sold at Whole Foods and similar stores, we should question why there are so many regulations over MMJ?

* Does it take a head injury to figure out plants purchased at the local Home Depot, Walmart, Target, Lowes, Kmart, and similar stores with garden centers sell bulbs and plants which are far more poisonous, than marijuana?

(For example: Amaryllis, Poinsettia, Rhubarb, Oleander, Monkshood, Adenium obesum, Corn Cockle, Aesculus, Datura, Colchucum, Brugmansia, Thevetia, Artemesia (AKA Wormwood), Salvia, just to name a few)

* Does it take a head injury to figure out the rise in heroine/crack is due to the education system not willing to work with children or their parents unless prescription medications are initiated, in which the doctors prescribe medication to take away the natural childhood responses and thus; is it truly curious why an adolescent/young adult will turn to hard drugs for any sort of rushing feeling, which had been taken away by the prescriptions?

* Does it take a head injury to figure out the amount of money made from taxes for MMJ separate from the taxes for recreational marijuana can possibly bring in more tax revenue to assist with education funds, law enforcement funds, fire response funds, emergency response medical team funds, transportation funds, healthcare savings funds, military spending funds, and etc.?

* Should it take a head injury to suggest finding a balance between both scientific, and natural medicine?

The ultimate measure of an individual is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at the time of challenge and controversy.

We must reject the idea that everytime a law is broken society is guity, rather than the law breaker. 

Freedom is never-more than one generation away, from exinction.  We do not pass freedom on through our blood stream because freedom must be fought for, protected, and handed on for the next generation to do the same.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

It should not take a head injury to figure this out, because you are smarter.
