Defcon 10

posted from my blog: Lessons in the Higher Education of Life

I don't remember the name of the movie, or even what it was really about. What I do remember is Defcon 10. The build up - we have now reached Defcon 6. The breath holding dread - Defcon 7. The pleading, heart racing - Defcon 8. Praying, edge of the seat - Defcon 9. Oh no, there's no way to stop it! Wait, maybe, just a few seconds more... take a breath, it can't be stopped, there's nothing left to try... it's too late... Defcon 10 has now been breached.

The Defcon 10 flare days of Psoriatic Arthritis. I hear and feel that movie every time.
