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.

Do make sure to link my journal blog entry articles to yours if you refer to my works for any of your research in the slightest, for proper credit.  Thank you in advance, as I do as I request.

Maybe it does take a head injury to figure certain aspects out in reference to history

There are several factors of which I will dive into prior to posting links to articles for further reference aspects in regards of the #CivilWar in the #UnitedStatesofAmerica of which the #Union Army and allies had fought the #Confederates, against the enslavement of people and a little bit later I will refer to the portions in reference to certain females who were involved with the #CivilWar as well as all too often they are the most forgotten in regards of the time.


It is more well known as to how the Civil War had begun in regards of freeing the slaves though not as much has been paid attention to by some in reference to the #AfricanAmericans who fought along with the #UnionArmy, as well as those who fought with the #ConfederateArmy. Granted some of the slaves were forced to fight for the Confederates, however there were slaves who were willing to fight for the Confederacy as well. Despite popular belief there were several predominant slave owners who ironically had treated their slaves worse than those with lighter skin tones, comparatively. Despite popular belief, there were more than African Americans who were slaves. Despite popular belief there were many who were lighter skin tone such as Irish, English, French, German, Spanish, and along such lines who were forced into slavery and/or indentured servitude to pay off the debts incurred when traveling to the United States of America.


Though many depictions refer to the skin tone in modern time examples, many who were slaves had worked in the fields so long their skin tone colors changed and darkened over time. Also those who were slaves had only black color, brown color, and darker other colors without any lightened colors for their clothing in comparison. If you look at the clothing of people in paintings from those prior years when you look at those who wore lighter colors within their clothing, many more of them had been slave owners compared to those who had only darker colored clothing. The less amount of detail in the clothing as well for such pictures, also shows the lack of details allowed for such clothing for those years to such individuals. Only those who were allowed to work inside of the buildings had more formalized attire, for the impression upon the guests who would attend the owners' houses.


I do not think it takes a head injury to figure out in this modern era when taking a look at BDU uniforms of the United States of America's #ArmedForces and other such branches and divisions, to be able to see certain similarities in reference to the clothing designs. I suppose it does not take a head injury when looking into all of the information as to why I have fought as hard as I have for the rights for various individuals throughout the Armed Forces, law enforcement, fire department, and EMS despite the backlash I dealt with at times when looking at the additional imagery for such portions in reference to the details of the clothing.


However there were multiple types of slave owners despite what some would like to portray as there were multiple slave owners who would hire the people as workers or employees once the debts for being brought to the United States of America were paid, especially if they did an exemplary job and were loyal to their employers. Of course the ones who were vicious and cruel to the slaves they owned in all points in time such as Uncle Tom, are more well known; though there were many who were just as cruel as Uncle Tom, and there were even more who were far more vicious than he ever was. You can think of what you know in reference to Uncle Tom as the medium compared to what some had been as, during such times. A more modern time example of what some of the situations certain individuals had put their slaves through, you can refer to radicalized Muslim groups such as Boko Haram and along those lines for what was done by those who were worse than Uncle Tom. There were many who made Uncle Tom look pale in comparison to what they had done to various slaves they owned, and what torments they put them through wrongly.


When taking into consideration the fact many females were a part on both sides as to the Civil War when nurses were captured from the Union Army in reference to the Confederate Army, you can look towards how certain radicalized groups treat females in modern times for a few examples just in reference to the average female of the Union side. If the female had been a nurse or an equivalent of a medic, their treatment if captured was far worse and much closer to a slave's treatment similar towards Uncle Tom in such regards. Then there were the few who were similar to Dr. Mary Edwards Walker who was on the Union Army's side who was a doctor for the Union Army of which after she fought to be able to go to school to become a doctor to then graduate, she then had to fight to be a doctor in the Army for the Union. After she succeeded and became a recognized doctor in the Union Army shortly afterwards because of a situation similar to Benedict Arnold for the #RevolutionaryWar though reversed in reference to a female being involved with that Army camps' ambush, #DrMaryEdwardsWalker was a Prisoner of War or #POW in the Confederate area.


It does not take a head injury to envision what she went through during her capture before the Confederates learned of her capabilities, and it also does not take a head injury to figure out what they put her through until she started treating their soldiers against her will. It should not take a head injury to figure out what occurred to her until she complied against her will, nor does it take a head injury to figure out a portion of the aftermath of what she had to deal with because of having to do so. It should not take a head injury to figure out the punishments she dealt with if a Confederate soldier died because of too many wounds to heal, just as it does not take a head injury to figure out those similar and worse to Uncle Tom were the ones in charge of such punishments.


Thankfully Dr. Mary Edwards Walker was extremely intelligent and resourceful and as she was taken from place to place she made notations as she had, in hopes there would be someone in Washington DC who would come across her letters and recognize her as herself. Ironically the doctor who had fought against her the most to be involved with the Union Army came to her defense initially unknowingly of his defending her, as a Congressman had made comments aloud for that doctor to hear. Upon making such commentary the doctor asked what Dr. Mary Edwards Walker was up to, and the #Congressman demanded more details as to the validity of the letters which had been going into #WashingtonDC for several weeks and months. The situation which occurred thereafter for Dr. Mary Edwards Walker shortened as the details are far more complex though if there is a company who would be interested in me to direct such a movie please do contact me, as I know the full story more-so than I have or will write here.


As per all of my website writings as well as my books I have authored, I have not and do not give permission to anyone to make into movies or television shows without my personal approval. If you are interested in purchasing the rights to be able to do such, then please contact me in reference to such through the To Contact Form. If your experiences are like some of the experiences I have written about in reference to FSL books that is one aspect, though not in regards of specific situations which only I have such experiences of course as well as my other books I have written and my journal blog entries. Hence not only the copyrights stated on my website though also for those who did not know, my Library of Congress copyrights for my works.


Nonetheless the letters which Dr. Mary Edwards wrote to Washington DC lead to the investigation as well as ambushing the enemy in the Confederacy, and successfully achieving the victory for freeing of the slaves. The most least known fact is for if it were not for Dr. Mary Edwards Walker who is also the only female Medal of Honor recipient thus far, the Civil War would have ended fully in a completely different way. Her letters were the saving grace the Union Army needed to cease the war, bring forward the #ThirteenthAmendment, and end slavery in the United States of America officially; #BDSM Lifestyle aspects aside, in reference to those who are consenting adults.


Though Dr. Mary Edwards Walker survived such and earned the recognition of the #MedalofHonor as well as the first female to receive such an award, her life thereafter was far more pleasant comparatively to her time prior to her release. She had assisted with several other aspects in multiple ways and there are treatments which she is responsible for finding the pathways to, for modernization of various measures.

#Britannica has a lengthy in depth description of various instances and information including the #Copperheads which #Irish, #German, and #Presbyterian individuals fought against the Confederacy together despite the Democrats fighting for the Confederacy and slavery to continue: American Civil War - The war in the east | Britannica


A quote about which might seem befitting in some ways in the current time frame to take a look into the year of 2021: "The Peace Democrats, dubbed “Copperheads” by Republicans after a poisonous snake, braided together three coalitions: immigrants, especially Irish and German Catholics, who had been the target of ugly discrimination by nativists and Protestant reformers and who had gravitated into the Democratic Party in the mid-1850s; people in the Lower Midwest with family ties to the South; and conservative Democrats who had a strict constructionist reading of the Constitution. Poorly led and having only loose formal connections beyond county lines, Peace Democrats universally characterized themselves as conservatives worried that Lincoln and the Republicans were reaching far past constitutional bounds. They also shared a deep antipathy toward African Americans. By the summer of 1862 the rallying cry of these conservatives was “The Union as it was, the Constitution as it is.”

Another article in reference to #Juneteeth by #DerekBrysonTaylor of the #NewYorkTimes wrote additional information about the holiday: slavery-brochure.pdf (nps.gov)




#PBS the #HistoryDetectives go into multiple research avenues for different information about the Civil War: Investigations History Detectives | PBS


#NPS has a pamphlet which is available online as well to read through in reference to the Civil and Revolutionary Wars: slavery-brochure.pdf (nps.gov)


All of which can bring together a larger perspective of the whole in surrounding the aspects of the Civil War for more review as back in those times there were not the available resources then in comparison to today for the ability of further information to educate in regards of the multiple sides and aspects in the length of details, though also remember when in reference to prior history books in education school systems; the fact the teachers in class did not always teach everything within the history books, as they chose what information was taught. If you read through all of the pages throughout the entirety of each history book when going through school as a child as I had when I was in Elementary and Middle School into High School, you would have seen more of the information as seen in reference to what I posted about online now. Back then I thought others read through all of the pages of all of the books as I knew I was not the only one who did not have the access others I knew had to video games and computer games to play, which I thought more had read as much as I did back then in the 1980s and 1990s because of such.


I suppose it may have taken a head injury to figure out, I may have been one of the few who did so back then as I grew up. I suppose now it makes a bit more sense as to why some of my teachers did not like the fact I corrected them in regards of what they were discussing in the classroom, in reference to multiple aspects. I suppose it did take a head injury, to figure that out.

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

If there are those who find such interesting enough to research further to bring forward more information in reference to the forefront for more detailed information, as usual I request the courtesy of the same which I do in reference to how I refer to articles for reference points when writing my journal blog entries; for each one used for reference starting points, to research.

 

That is common sense, good etiquette, and good karma; whilst lifting others upward, in positive ways.

The Ornery PSA

Quotes which mean a lot to me:

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 guilty, rather than the law breaker. 

Freedom is never-more than one generation away, from extinction.  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.  Though best to be able to share in person with who matters, until that time occurs being able to see what is possible through such is a feat to notice.  One must be happy within oneself prior to being happy with another, though such can be enjoyed if living in one's own truth is as such.
