Warning: there will be foul words in this post. I don't use them often, but this is just the final straw. Venting ahead... As you, my friends, know, this Summer has been hell. Things got even "hotter" yesterday with the delivery of a letter from social security - and it wasn't the kind of letter… Continue reading A Kick In The Face
Little White Lies
Everyone tells them - the "little white lies." Right? Maybe. Little white lies have been on my mind today. They aren't the same for me as they are for you.

I am NOT me!
I am so not me. This thing that I've become, that my body has become, this is NOT me! And I've just discovered I'm really angry about that! Have to give it to the Methadone - yeah, it was great at blocking the pain. Methadone is used in chronic pain patients because it does not… Continue reading I am NOT me!
