Systemic refers to something that is spread throughout, system-wide, affecting a group or system such as a body, economy, market or society as a whole.
Had the flu bug this weekend. I never seem to be able to coordinate a malady to manifest itself on a workday. Actually, I believe it is a subconscious effort to avoid cleaning the garage and prepping the snow blower for the gusts and dunes of snow to come. Whatever, I was confined to my back, sweats and blankee.
The surfing of channels occupied my time between bouts of delirious sleep and make-out sessions with the porcelain bigmouth.
I learned from our various news outlets that we are doomed! Doomed I tells you!

SNAP has bankrupted Catholic Dioceses tagging the Culture of Corruption and Patriarchy in the Institutional Catholic Church - as opposed to punishing NAMBLA poster boys in stiff collars. It's a Systemic Problem! No, it's the acceptance of weirdos universal - Who's to Say? God Made Me This Way!
Odd that the priests grabbing little boys were once universally regarded by National Catholic Reporter type Catholics as paragons of feelings and sensitivity.
I had the flu - a topical disease. It was not a systemic mallady - I would breathe, walk, employ my opposable thumb, recognize my children as they tossed armfuls of laundry over me. I got over it and feel ready to go one round with a blind ten year old girl. Bring it!

I took Imodium, Canfield's ginger ale, and a huge heaping helping of sleep. I got leaped out of the rack at 3:15 AM, said my prayers, made the bed, tossed in a load of laundry, took out the trash, got some coffee, had a smoke, and watched the news.
I'm Hell when I'm Well and I Ain't Never Been Sick! Jump Back, Loretta!
Nothing is systemic! Everything ( excepting Glio Blastoma brain tumors, most head wounds and self-inflicted leaps off of most Chicago River bridges) can be fixed, including a 24 hour bug
How you feeling?
