When allergies attack!

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!

Arguing with idiots

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.

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
