The RHATT Pack Watch
Today is Tuesday, January 8th, Day 258 of the Rhatt Pack Watch.
Have you noticed the Red-face Ratt, or maybe it should be the Blotchy Red-Face Ratt, around Town during the holiday season? He’s been seen on the streets, that is literally walking and somewhat dazed, of White Springs. In addition, he’s been seen frequenting various places and businesses at all hours of the day and night and in a wide variety of conditions. Here’s just a couple of examples:
For instance, when he apparently ran out of his favorite weed, he’s been seen in Munchies in a sleep walking episode, clad only in his pajamas, looking for a joint.
Or on a few other occasions, after pulling a couple of lines, the Ratt got the munchies and ended up at Family Traditions for takeout and those special brownies that have been available next door.
In any event, everyone who has seen the Ratt has made similar observations. The Ratt hasn’t been looking very good. Yeah, he’s been spaced out, but that’s pretty normal. His face has that bright red glow, but now there’s more. His eyes look like the eyes of the Grim Reaper. And lately there seems to be mucus or something drooling from the side of his mouth. The Ratt claims he’s OK, and he may have a few good days where he appears to be at a fairly advanced stage of his apparent HIV/AIDS like illness. It’s not known whether the Ratt is taking his Meds, or whether his recreational pursuits are aggravating his condition. As you know, he continues to miss many Town Council meetings, when his condition may be highly contagious and warrants intense medical treatment.
There appears to be no question that the apparent HIV / AIDS – like condition of the Red-face Ratt and his extremely aggressive sexual behavior with the “Cousins” and young fondlings warrants health prevention, monitoring and care as appropriate. As you are aware, HIV/AIDS can be spread easily, has a long gestation period and can be life threatening, if not detected and treated early. Unfortunately HIV / AIDS has established a foothold in White Springs. If left unstopped and untreated, in a few years, people will be dropping like flies. Don’t be one of them! Learn the basics about HIV / AIDS and practice what you learn.
As the “Watch” has reported previously, there are effective preventitive medications and post infection treatments. Some of the many antiretroviral medications available include Ziagen, Epzicom, Triumeq, Agenerase, Reytaz, Evotav, Biktravy, Symtuza, Rescriptor, VidexEC, Tivicay, Julka, Prexita, Truvada and more. You don’t need to wait until your immune system is completely compromised and sores, blotches and redness appears on your skin, similar to what the Ratt has which is apparent. You don’t need to be as sick as the Ratt.
You can receive help early and look forward to a long life. The Hamilton County Health Department is available to assist with both pre- and post-exposure HIV / AIDS and other STD treatments. Contact the Health Department for an appointment at (386) 792-1414 or contact the US Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at 1600 Clifton Road, Atlanta, GA 30329-4027; 800-CDC-INFO (800)232-4636; https://www,cdc,giv/guv/basics/whatishiv.html. They have extensive resources. Also, the Florida HIV / AIDS hot-line (800) 352-2437 has additional resources to help.
Everyone can help by reporting suspected STD’s and HIV / AIDS outbreaks. You can also rid White Springs of the Town Administration and Council Members who promote this type of environment. Call the FBI office in Jacksonville (904) 248-7000 with any relevant information.
