My whole face is swollen up. I got into something I am allergic to, but I don’t know what it is. I’m allergic to Benadryl and most “allergy” meds, so I can’t use those to help. I really need some steroids, but I sat in the ER waiting room for 4 hours hacking my head … Continue reading When allergies attack!
I’ve posted before how I have a problem with Facebook sometimes. I’m not sure if I’m starting one of those times, or if I just ran across a particularly pernicious post, but I have been arguing with an armchair psychologist for about two hours. He’s a full on moron who perpetuates stigma on bipolar disorder … Continue reading Arguing with idiots
Eating disorders, like ALL mental illnesses, do not have a “face.” There is no certain way you have to “look” in order to have an eating disorder. You do not have to be so thin that you are near hospitalization, or worse to have an eating disorder, although that can be a result. All body … Continue reading Just an FYI
I just feel like I’m doing the whole “faking it” thing with everyone. Just the surface is all people are getting. I HATE doing that. I don’t know how else to be. No one wants to be around a sad mopey person. If I’ve learned anything in my life, I’ve learned that. Better to “surface” … Continue reading Struggling to pretend
No joke. I was on Facebook this morning, (every time I’m mad I feel like the sentence starts out that way), and some woman was talking about how fecal transplants can cure bipolar disorder and autism. WHAT?? No. They cannot. Just for the record. In case you wondered. Of course I corrected her. I also … Continue reading Misinformation is everywhere!
Okay. So this is not going to be some kind of medical description. At least, not a very good one. I just want to provide a brief overview of the differences and types of Bipolar Disorder since I keep seeing ridiculous things posted on the internet that lead me to believe that there is still … Continue reading Types of Bipolar…
I had a “video visit” with one of the doctors in the practice that I go to. It wasn’t with my doctor or this idiocy would not have happened, (at least I don’t think it would have happened). I told him how I had been feeling super fatigued and how it had come on rather … Continue reading Really??
Okay. I'm aware that this may make me sound... off to some people. However, I was out smoking this morning early, since I slept from 7:30-12:30am and that's it, and I thought I noticed movement in my neighbors' driveway. Their driveway is about, I don't know, 25 yards, from where I smoke. Maybe 50. So … Continue reading Thieves?
Okay. This is kind of a long story, but an important one. My oldest friend called me today and told me about her "church" (in quotes because it's not biblically based at all), has a choir that she's in. Fine. Apparently a new person joined the choir and has some issues with mental health and … Continue reading Stigma!!!!!!!
Do you know how hard it is to find a place to smoke outside where people are not annoyed and don't make stupid comments? I mean, I know it stinks. So do some people. It's a drug and I'm addicted. I'm trying to quit. In the meantime, I'm trying to find the least offensive ways … Continue reading Outcast
