I suppose some coronavirus quarantines are better than others

"Silver Linings Playbook: 119 People Quarantined In A Brothel In Spain

Of all the places to be quarantined, a brothel in Valencia, Spain, might not be the worst. You've got booze, you've likely got a small buffet of fried foods and you've got entertainment.

But in all seriousness, that was exactly the case a day ago when authorities found that a woman working at the "La Selva Negra" brothel had tested positive for coronavirus. The findings forced authorities to quarantine the premises and the 86 customers that were inside.

The employee, who is now in the hospital, had "slept with several clients that same night," according to a translated blog post on the story.

In addition to the customers, the club's owners, waitresses, security and cleaning crew were also quarantined. When added to the total of 86 customers, it makes 119 people under quarantine. They have been asked to "keep calm" and to just "live a normal life" inside the premises."

Well.........I guess the good news is if they have strict rules (about kissing and "handling") it might be possible to get laid and not get the virus!  Not sure those guys' wives would consider that good news.....but just saying.  But Mark is right.......that's gonna be one tough phone call for each of those customers.  

On a more serious note.........I assume anyone dealing with Crohns or UC is on some serious immunosuppressant medications (Humira, Remicade, Methotrexate, etc, etc).  We need to avoid this virus like the plague.  I've already told my boss if even one person in our geographical area is identified as having it.....I'm teleworking full time until it passes.  He agreed. Many of my co-workers that had planned travel to the west coast and Pacific Northeast for work have cancelled and will do it via video conference.  For most healthy folks this is just a common cold.  But for us on immunosuppressants our bodies might not have a fighting chance if not caught in time.  So be careful out there folks.  You might only get one shot at dealing with this virus, and you might lose.  So don't take any chances if you can help it.

The flip side of that are those of us with autoimmune disorders. I'm a Type1 diabetic, my wife, although not an ostomy patient, has Achalasia. Our systems already go nuts when confronted not only by something foreign, but also with our own body. I can't even think about what this will do.

OMG!!!!

Yes, good point!  Seems these minor flu-like viruses can really wreak havoc on folks of many flavors.  It's just Mother Nature working that "Survival of the Fittest" angle again.  We'll just have to keep shuckin' and jivin' to stay alive.  Never a dull moment I guess.

Being Ostomates, we have hand hygiene down to a science. Gives us a leg up on the rest of the population. At least we have something going for us.

Hi all as a long time ostomate and all the hand washing and sanitizer use by this time of winter my hands get so dry and cracks around cuticles it adds one more pain to being an ostomate and having good hygiene.

Ron,

  No shit.......try the OKeefe's Hand lotion.  I'm not big on all those skin lotions and such, but I find the OKeefe's to be amazing.  They sell it at Walmart in a squeeze tube or a tub for like $4 and change.  If it can't help your hands nothing will.  Well, there is somethign that will work, but we'll save that one for extreme cases.  Getcha some of that OKeefe's.....I think you'll be surprised.  PS  shout out to whoever recommended the OKeefe's to me on here.........don't remember who it was, but 10 points to you.

bob

Agreed. However, it obviously has huge benefits during a pandemic! There is a cream made by Coloplast that really helps with dry, over washed skin - it's called Atrac-Tain. It has 10% urea and AHA, whatever that means (maybe that the joke is on me?). I find it helps a lot. Get the small size first, to try it, because it's a bit pricey. Or ask for some samples from Coloplast; they will probably send you some. 

While we are all enjoying our immunity to the corona virus, we will have to take some time to mourn the loss of Bob, who didn't learn to wash his mitts. Alas, poor Bob! He will be missed.

Would you look at this crap.........Ol' Webfoot has already written me off........and I don't even have the sniffles!  Her and her expensive Attack-Train overpriced Petroleum Jelly.  The nerve of some people!! 

Hey, we all gotta go sometime.  Guess I'd rather get a cold and drop dead in a few days than be plumbed to a bunch of machines stuck in a hospital bed watching my relatives divy up my stuff.  What a mad, mad, mad, mad world.  Great title for a movie, no?

Peace Out Folks,

B-man

Webfoot. I like that!😆 Maybe I won't have to pack my fins now when I go on a snorkeling vacation? And I am so sorry about writing you off. Rumours of your demise were greatly exaggerated! My most humble apologies.

Mon Mar 02, 2020 12:55 pm

Can anyone please help me. I am in a brothel in Spain but told the wife I was going out to get some peaches which technically I did. Can someone please call her and let her know that I fell down a drain and will be stuck for a fortnight or so.
