"Co-occurrence of free-living amoebae and non-tuberculous mycobacteria in hospital water networks, and preferential growth of Mycobacterium avium in Acanthamoeba lenticulata" This study used water samples from a hospital and contains an intriguing clue as to how and why NTM resists disinfectants and antibiotics. Ultimately, it may have important consequences regarding drinking water networks.

why can't they really get this? I used to say this and now you can tell undoubtably! It's so sad I look in the mirror only when I have to because I see no resemblance at all to the person I am still and used to be. I don't know what's worse looking "normal" but feeling all the chronically ill symptoms, feeling like death inside and know one notices or looking exactly like you feel and worse and don't have it in you to even put chap stick across my lips. For years my husband and kids have lived with me no make-up, with unbrushed hair in bun, unmatched pjs, and glasses. My husband sees this plus no dinner on the stove, a messy house, children begging for his attention like he's a single dad! How can a young man stay with something that's such a disaster of a wife and mother in every area in life?

Antibiotics lead to mental illness: "After kids are given excessive amounts of antibiotics that lead to the destruction of their gut health and the subsequent onset of mental illness, they are then given deadly antipsychotics and other psychiatric drugs to ‘treat’ the condition that originated from pharmaceutical drug use."
