The Union Association survived for only one season (1884), as did the Players' League (1890), an attempt to return to the National Association structure of a league controlled by the players themselves. Both leagues are considered major leagues by many baseball researchers because of the perceived high caliber of play and the number of star players featured. However, some researchers have disputed the major league status of the Union Association, pointing out that franchises came and went and contending that the St. Louis club, which was deliberately "stacked" by the league's president (who owned that club), was the only club that was anywhere close to major league caliber.
Once scabies has been diagnosed, the physician should explain its basic epidemiology. Otherwise, medication alone might be relied on to eradicate the infestation. If environmental control measures are not instituted, treatment failure will occur, because mites are able to survive and reinfest the patient. Thus, it is critical to decontaminate all linens, towels, and clothing used in the previous four days by hot-water washing (60°C) and heated drying. Items that cannot be washed in hot water should be dry cleaned or sealed in a plastic bag for five days. Even if household and sexual contacts have no symptoms, they should follow the same cleaning procedures. Treatment must be simultaneous for all.
People also relapse after successful treatment with a good therapist. In fact, I define a “relapse” as one minute or more of feeling lousy. Given that definition, all human beings will relapse forever. Some of us can pop right out of those bad spells, but others get stuck in them, for weeks, months, or years. This doesn’t have to be a problem if you prepare for relapse at the time you recover. I always did Relapse Prevention Training with every patient I treated prior to terminating therapy. This seemed to help a great deal. I am pretty sure the last chapter of my book, When Panic Attacks, describes how the Relapse Prevention Training works.
