I was reading the news on saturday and found out about some developments in the ebola outbreak going on in africa - which I didn’t know was going on at all beforehand, let alone as severely as it is. this reminded me of the book The Hot Zone which I’ve been meaning to read for years…I hadn’t read it yet due to the fact I gave up reading books when my back pain and arm strength teamed up to make reading books destroy me a few years ago.
well, I was way too curious about the book thanks to the news story that I decided to find an ebook and read it. I ended up spending that whole evening reading the book and finished it late that night. I ended up having even more trouble sleeping than usual. in fact. here it is 7am and I’ve not slept yet today, either. of course, there is a lot of other unrelated stuff causing unrest within me, but a pretty decent chunk of the reason is I am scared to death now that I have more information to fill in the blanks of this news story. what an incredible illness. I’m surprised I haven’t seen more about this issue on tv or other news outlets or even from friends. it’s very scary. it’s the biggest outbreak of ebola in history.
what a way to get back into reading books! on the plus side, I’m going to see about reading some books I’ve been meaning to read in ebook form. it worked out pretty well. no numb arms, back pain, or knee/hip issues(well, no more than I usually have on a daily basis)!! it’d be nice to get back into reading again. I missed it
