On my mind!

What really made me think about the Colorado incident was thinking about people who were around the shooter during the days, weeks and months before he acted.  I wondered if they were seeing any unusual behavior on his part.  Of course I know it's easier to recognize something after the fact.  But, it made me think about my own brother's psychotic break.  Looking back I realize there were signs that something was going to happen but I didn't recognize them at the time.  When someone is a little odd all the time its hard to recognize that they are acting stranger than usual.  That probably doesn't make any sense but that's the best way I know to put it.  I can't help but wonder what would have happened if Mike had hurt someone during that episode.  Would he have been considered legally competent?   Having been there at the time I can't imagine that he would have but I don't really understand the legal definition.

I'm just praying for all the victims of this horrible act!

Yesterday I started physical therapy.  OMG thought I was going to die.  I was pounded, stretched, shocked, and anything else they could think to do to me.  I'm sore as a boil today but I sure hope this helps.  I'm scheduled 3 times a week for 4 weeks.  That's a lot of stretching and pounding.  The PT tech who hooked me up to the vital stem machine was probably 19 years old and the PT around 24.  Gads everyone is looking so young to me.

Physical therapists do belive in inflicting pain but they are very effective.
Take two aspirin and go back for more. It does work.
