Thoughts and Writings on Mental Health and Mindfulness

I’m sort of a worse case scenario type of person. Before I enter or commit to something, I ask myself, “What’s the worst that can happen?” After that, I taper it down with other scenarios. For example, I need to get meniscus surgery. When I asked my doctor what’s the worst case for this he said, “A knee replacement in twenty years.” Okay, I can live with that (remember that line). I have been in pain for fourteen months and haven’t been able to run, so if I have a partial removal and fast recovery, which will in turn enhance my quality of life by being able to hike and run again, that sounds like a good trade off.

  1. I could share a memory here. Back in the early 1970s my dad went on a business trip to Japan. He was engaged in a speaking tour or something.

    When he returned he just raved about how great the Japanese people were and how polite they were and stuff. I distinctly recall that one of the things he related to me was the fact that whenever a Japanese person thinks they might be coming down with a cold – if they even suspect that – they donned a mask in public. Why? Simply out of consideration and respect for other people. They did not want to give their cold to someone else.

    That was long before anyone ever heard of the coronavirus. But I wonder. What would’ve happened if we had been doing what the Japanese were doing back then? Perhaps this Covid-19 pandemic wouldn’t be so serious. Of course, I cannot prove that – but I wonder.

    • The first time I recall seeing people wearing masks in public was when I was stationed in Okinawa in the 1960s. It was for the same reason your dad shared. Thanks for sharing.
