 Cu ochi plecați, de Carmen McKnight

Azi stau cu cap plecat

Și gânduri mă apasă.

Că-ci pace n-am și sunt întunecat.

De omenire la puțini le pasă.

Pe Dumnezeu mulți l-au cam uitat.

Dar din memorie aud un glas de mamă

Ce-o dată a grăit fără de teamă:

“Ridică-ți ochii fără zăbovire,

Și de ai lacrimi în a ta privire

Dă slavă Lui cu preamărire!”

Și ochii mi sau ridicat.

Eu slavă Domnului am înălțat

Și cu durerea încă-n suflet

I-am spus Lui totul 

Și pe urmă am iertat.

Mi-am amintit de clipe din trecut

Când slab eram, și frica-n piept bătea

Dar Duhul Sfânt cu mine timp a petrecut 

Și-un înger protectiv, deși tăcut, 

El a trimis să-mi amintească- al Lui copil eu sunt.

Când greul sufletesc împunge

Și lacrime pe suflet trist prelinge

Și vorbe pline de tăiș străpunge

Adu-ți aminte! Suflet drag,

Copil al Domnului tu ești, nu un pribeag.

Și inima ar trebui să-ți bată

Fără de grijuri ci eliberat.

Cu fața ta senină și shimbată

Toată tristețea ai și spulberat.

Slăvit să fie al nost Împărat!

  1. MEDICINE-an abnormally low concentration of oxygen in the blood.
  2. ECOLOGY-oxygen deficiency in a biotic environment.
  3. CARMEN’S TAKE– My version of Fitbit watch keeps waking me up in the middle of the night right as the dream turns sweet. Hmm, the last dream though it was so stressful most likely I was holding my breath trying to die.

Low levels of oxygen concentration in the blood is not a laughing matter though, especially for those who suffer from severe sleep apnea- like most of my brothers do- and if not fixed damage to the organs can occur within minutes as Facty Health puts it.

On the lighter side of life, lack of oxygen to the brain can cause stupidity but we all know about those symptoms don’t we? We have far too many embarrassing examples to realize our chances to hit genius potentials are severely low.

Common signs include rapid heart rate, coughing, sweating, fast breathing, changes of skin color (such as blue or red), and mental confusion (Facty Health info), so it’s really good to know that I have every single one of those symptoms and all is… semi-well.

Mental confusion comes naturally with age, especially if you raised kids. They take every last sane neuron from your brain, twists them into misshaped knots and spits them back at you so you can somehow operate for the remainder of your natural given life.

I’ve been diagnosed with anemia, one of the possible causes of Hypoxemia, about a zillion years ago. It is genetic. Explains why I keep fainting, although that could very well be a vagus nerve disorder. I witnessed aunt Rodica’s pale complexion for years and heard enough of her stories to know anemia it’s a serious condition. In fact my sister Delia, struggles with anemia as well. Hypoxemia is present in respiratory conditions such as pulmonary edema, pneumonia, and pulmonary embolism, respiratory diseases such as COPD, ARDS, and interstitial lung disease, high altitude- that can really be fixed by getting back to lower altitudes- medicine such anesthetics or narcotics and heart disease present at birth according to, making Covid-19 a strong enemy.

Treatment according to…well apparently none.

The obvious thing you need is oxygen, and that can be prescribed by your doctor if diagnosed.

On a more natural route any supplements that increase B12 and Iron deficiency will most likely help but my favorite products are: Vitamineral Green by HealthForce Super Foods a product I’ve used for 20 years now and ChlorOxygen by Herbal Medicine (pill or liquid format).

Have a well oxygenated day:)
