Hillary’s Health

According to rumors, Hillary has pneumonia.  It would explain the coughing fits. It would not explain the way she collapsed walking to the van unless she passed out, which would have been quite logical.

Sunday afternoon CNN was forced to admit something is going on with Hillary Clinton’s health.  I saw the moment, as she was leaving her daughter’s extremely expensive apartment.  As usual, she was very poorly coordinated, fashion wise.  I don’t know if we would mention this if we were dealing with a man.  She did have what appeared to be a Chanel bag.  Anyway – she left the 9/11 memorial after feeling over-heated. Being post-menopausal, I’m always over-heated, and there are times when it makes me feel rather ill.  It’s a terrible feeling, one thinks would disappear once menopause comes to an end, but it doesn’t.  And – it isn’t a hot flash. It’s different, a churning in the stomach, almost nausea, and an overwhelming feeling of abject exhaustion.  I also have a tendency to get a little bitchy.  I also want to take the time of being bitchy enough to ask who is coordinating this woman’s wardrobe. It is a shallow thing to ask, but they missed their opportunity with the handbag.  It should have been red.

If you watch the video, Hillary does not stumble. You can see her legs lock. She wasn’t drunk. Her legs appeared to lock in pace, as she was required to almost Frankenstein walk to the van, then she completely collapsed. As she did, her people stepped in to shield her from the press.  She nearly fell into the van.  That was a physical collapse that seems to echo the rumors of Parkinson Disease.

There is an unreasonable expectation of perfect health for the POTUS.  Considering the fact that with very few exceptions we are dealing with people who are over the age of fifty-five, it is foolish not to expect problems.  There is NOTHING wrong with leaders of any country having health problems.  To expect them not to have problems is irrational and unreasonable.  This being said, the public does have a right to know what is going on, unless we’re dealing with the mundane.  Hillary has a thyroid problem.  So do I.  She is being castigated because of the medication she is taking. What idiots who report the news don’t grasp is people can have reactions to medications.  I wish I could take what Hillary is taking.  I can’t.  I can’t take the meds the press thinks she should be taking.  I have serious reactions to them.  I’m stuck dealing with a few supplements and herbs.

Hillary is taking warfarin.  It is a tried and true older blood thinner.  It is safer than the newer versions.  My mother nearly died taking the modern one.  Reporters are castigating Hillary’s physicians for using warfarin instead of something newer and fancier.  I would be more worried if she was taking the other meds, which are rapidly being the subject of ambulance chasing lawyers.

They now say she has pneumonia.  Some of it makes sense.  Some of it doesn’t.  A good four-five years ago she had a horrible case of the flu which came close to being fatal.  I know all about having that sort of flu.  It basically destroys a person’s health.  I’ve never been the same.  I have a tendency toward chronic fatigue.  It does not make me incompetent.  It does not indicate that my brain does not work.  It just indicates I get terribly tired a times.  The brain injury Hillary sustained when she passed out, during the flu, is what is probably causing the problem, and it is a problem.

BUT – not having good heath is not a reason to eliminate being POTUS.  The possibility that she has Parkinson’s, or dementia is a reason for her full health records to be released.  I’ve had to live with my father and his Alzheimer’s Disease.  Once the disease is well established and you know what you are facing is one thing, but when you don’t know what is going on – it is a disaster.  It is something for which my family is still paying, literally.  This week it cost me at least $1700.  When you are totally and completely broke, due to the after effects of a parent’s AD, that’s a heck of a lot of money.  We don’t need a POTUS who is hiding a dementia based illness from us.
