Feeding The Fire: Out Of The Frying Pan…

Ready. Set. Sail! (Mania Trigger warning! Explicit sexual content!) I’m not doing so good right now. I’m really fucking manic. I’ve been manic for about a week or so now and it’s been really taking me out of focus with reality. My brain is going so fast I feel like I can’t keep a string… More Feeding The Fire: Out Of The Frying Pan…

Good Working Day

I’ve been working this morning.  I turned in my assignment for this week for class already and have already gone grocery shopping as well.  I feel much better than last week and thank all of you for thinking about me.

I got a nice little ego boost–I had sent my short piece “Trade-In” to my professor to get her opinion and she had unreserved praise for it.  Her only critique was to make it even more compact and make every word earn its place in it. So I’ve done a little tightening on it and am glad I sent it to her.   Now I’m wondering if  I could do more with it–make it part of a longer  piece.  It would be hard to write but an interesting exercise.  So I am thinking about that this morning.  I’m not sure I’m brave enough to write more like it.   We will see.

I’m also working on a series of prose poems–what comes to mind when I listen to certain albums/artists.  I’ve only done two but think they’re all right. So we will see how that goes.  I’d ultimately like a poem on each artist/album represented in our music collection.  But that’s a  LOT of music to listen to.

Busy week ahead–doctor appointment Thursday and that will be an all morning affair. Just the usual stuff.  But we will see how it goes.  Saturday we’re going to the first State game.  My middle one is playing with the band and we have to get there by 6:30 a.m.  Sheesh.  But I think it will still be a fun day.  Any day at Mississippi State is a fun day.🙂


Weekly Wrap-Up August 29, 2016

Mood Odd week for me. I was in just a meh state at the beginning of the week, but by the end I nearly had an anxiety attack. I received a letter from Medi-Cal saying my benefits were ending on August 31 (3 days from now) because I didn’t send in the paperwork they needed to continue my eligibility. The…

Credit for Prior Learning

When I registered for college and received the finalized statement about my transfer credits there were 20 courses for which I still needed credit.  Three of these (two general education and one for my psychology major) I had taken before but they did not transfer in correctly.  I managed to acquire syllabi from my previous […]

Hey CDC, “I’m not who you think I am!”

This says it like it is.

Hey CDC, “I’m not who you think I am!” – by Angelika

I’m offended by the CDC opioid prescribing guidelines, with their assumption that I’m stupid and lazy (if my pain is even real in the first place) and that my doctor is ignorant and negligent.

I’m insulted by the derogatory appraisal of patient behavior and appalled that the CDC has broadcast such a devastatingly negative stereotype of pain patients

Coming from the government’s “Center for Disease Control”, these guidelines stigmatize patients with the authority of the US government behind them.
