I got used to the fact that when I hurt at night, I may as well get up. Now I enjoy it. I take a nap later. I coax myself into getting up by thinking about having that first cup of coffee, and I'm right up.

I've trained myself to get up before the pain starts, and stay mostly pain free now.

I had a book, The Source, that would make me sleepy. I could only last through a couple of pages. That book lasted me a couple of years, just reading at bedtime.
"The Source" did that to everyone. I saw James Michener on an interview show once where he apologized for the book. The first half of the book is as fascinating as most of his others, but almost exactly on a single page, it turns to absolute boredom. He said his publisher pushed him into doing a rush job to finish the book and he wrote the last half in a week, after taking many years to write the first half.

I've never finished it. I get to that area where he started rushing to finish and I can go no further. There was one section where he described a bush for 6 pages. Real sleeping material.

His book "Hawaii" was perhaps one of the best books I've ever read in my life. I read that when I was about 10.

That's a fact! I have a stack of 2,000 page text books I've read. I call em "door stops".

Chicken soup works every time...AII is airborne infectious isolation.

So AII would be the prevention measures taken to avoid AI?

Now I understand that you meant:

Don't you have to wear a mask to avoid AI, (Not AII)?

Thanks!

AII precautions is how the term is defined in the glossary I edited in December. But yes, a mask is a good idea.
