we believe absurdities,
we shall commit atrocities."
This is just a very short piece to show that I am still
here, written between winks or attempts to wink, and with the promiss
that Real Soon Now I will be going to discuss the RESPECT with which we
should speak - just having survived another Commemoration of World War II and
its many victims in Holland - about Hitler, concentration-camps and
such matters, for I have realized that some folks, notably Dutchmen but
also Americans and Englishmen, do not speak with the proper RESPECTFUL
attitudes about such things, refusing to see all the evidence for both
sides, in a scientific, objective manner, also for the soap industry,
while touching upon the fact that over 100.000 Dutch entities of
inferior race, in Holland, clearly - it being "offensive
to Dutch" to mention these matters - do
not deserve the RESPECT some
benighted individuals - Dutchmen again -appear to feel for such a mere 1%
of the relevant Dutch population, which in a democracy, RESPECTFULLY,
counts as nought.
But that is an enticing theme of liberation
and textual interpretation of a certain épistemè
RESPECTFULLY practised in Dutch, French and American universities since
po-mo-days, where RESPECTFULLY it has been decided, buy FULL democratic
MAJORITY, that whoever is larger
than the rest deserves, RESPECTFULLY, a beheading to teach him or her to
see things on the level of real RESPECTFUL de-mo-cra-tic sentiment We All
objectively Must RESPECTFULLY maintain, if We are to Save Our
Civilization, with RESPECT (of course!!).
Where was I...dreaming away between one attempt to wink
and yet another one that may fail, in dysfunctional illness beliefs that
Chill it! (.........)
Here, for the interested reader, are two really
good ME sites, of quite different types also:
This is by Laurel B, and American woman with severe ME
and a beautiful site and style of writing. The last is the more amazing
because, as she writes in "Eyes Wide Shut" dated May 1, 2010,
because of her illness she must type blindly, literally:
Here's why: something I have yet to mention on my blog
is that I type with my eyes closed. Without looking at the screen
(since my eyes are shut and all), I type out everything I want to say,
then open my eyes to go back and look for typos. Fortunately, the
plethora of said typos are usually highlighted in red, so I can spot
them with greater ease. I fix a few, then rest, then go back to fix a
few more, then rest, and so on.
And here is her very clear explanation of why she must
write with "Eyes Wide Shut", with my bolding added:
Once the typo's are fixed and there are no more bright
red lines to mock my typing skills, I am then able to listen to what I
wrote and make corrections as necessary.
I listen to what I wrote because I can't read what I wrote. Due
to neurological problems that effect both my vision and cognition, I
have been unable to read more than a few sentences per day for many
years. Doing so causes a setback (or crash) that can take weeks, or
even months or years to dig out of.
So... that's one thing that may happen to people with
severe ME. It is an impressive site that also looks very nicely, with
many beautiful pictures.
This is not a site designed that is really designed to
please the eye, but to please the mind looking for information about ME:
There is a very great amount available, sorted well in relevant
categories in the lefthand column.
It's a very rich, well researched site with an amazing
amount of useful information about and around ME, also well checked.
This is definitely the site to turn to if you want a
comprehensive view of many aspects of ME: Over 120 categories - if I've
counted well - all rich with information, files, links and useful
summaries and expositions... highly recommended.
P.S. Did I write one single disrespectful word?! Did I
now? Well... here is the theme I mean to be discussing RESPECTFULLY, also
in the light of how much evidence there is, objective fact, from the
mouths of people who knew the evidence, as gathered e.g. by
Leon Goldensohn, in The Nuremberg
Interviews, that - objectively, respectfully - a lot can and could be
said for healthy camps where the merits of
graduated exercise therapy and
cognitive behavourial therapy and such things were practised quite
effectively, really (objectively) quite humanely (relatively speaking,
with appropriate respect of course, and putting these things in their own
time and place, where and when values were, respectfully, so much better judged by
the more leaderly folks who, respectfully, ruled those camps, that did -
objectively! - much good to the soap industry, a purefying and
cleansing highly respectable value and article that
should be, respectfully now, seen from both sides, next to the
enormous benefits such camps turn out to have for bio-medical science and
the health of young children also:

me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!
No change, no pause, no hope! Yet I endure.
I ask the Earth, have not the mountains felt?
I ask yon Heaven, the all-beholding Sun,
Has it not seen? The Sea, in storm or calm,
Heaven's ever-changing Shadow, spread below,
Have its deaf waves not heard my agony?
Ah me! alas, pain, pain ever, forever!"
