This month, a federal judge ruled that emergency contraception should be made available without a prescription to women of all ages. This week, the New York Times takes on the next phase of the birth control debate: What
Caffeine and Alcohol Intolerance
So I was drinking decaf tea for a while. And it still made me sick. There’s too much caffeine in decaf! Chocolate, I can still eat chocolate. I’d better, body!
I recently thought I could handle alcohol again. Nope. I mean, I can have one super-weak drink but that’s it.
I was on a roller coaster with what makes my stomach ill. ALL THE. TIME. I believe it’s GERD now but the pills only make it better, not go away. I may need something stronger.
If you can properly digest caffeine and/or alcohol (like most people), enjoy it. For me. ;)
Motivation Gets Me Down
I have a difficult time motivating myself. The sayings and stories sound great but… I don’t know. I have nothing.
This has been my entire life. Some call it “lazy” but when I do do something, I do it quickly and accurately (or ask questions/search Google to get as close as I can).
I can never get enough work but I hate networking. This is one of the reasons I left the entertainment industry. I’d like and need to make a bit more money, just get over this hump. I’m tired of always being stressed and worried. I’ve always suffered from anxiety and depression. This shit just makes it harder to handle.
I have one person I can always go to, my husband. I’m fortunate in that respect, though there are so few others I could turn to. And by “so few others” I really mean “no one,” or it feels that way. Every time I try to tell an ol’ friend about shitty family issues or anything else, it doesn’t feel like they care enough. But these are people I used to be closer with; it’s not like they tell me what’s going on in their lives (besides the basics).
Sometimes, I just need to get things out of me, in a public way. It makes me feel better.
But the motivation never comes. I try to make it happen but there are always things in the way. Go to the gym (or do some activity for exercise)? That would make me feel better. Yet if I had the extra cash, I’d have health insurance. It’s still not affordable. Fuck you, republican politicians.
Every time I hear a sob story about someone dying because they couldn’t afford treatment or surgery, it hits me really hard. I fear that will be me someday. I also feel for the family/friends of that someone.
These things, plus more (I’ve already vented about issues with my mother), continue to bring me down. It’s hard to motivate myself to do much of anything.
Progressives thinking of voting for 3rd party candidates such as Gary Johnson or Jill Stein for cannabis (re)legalization reasons alone, please consider the real possibility of Mitt Romney being elected.
Remember this ol’ nugget from almost 2 1/2 years ago?
Obama is open to the discussion and some think he will change his tune after re-election. While he surely does come off as a hypocrite, he said he’s open to discuss anything. Romney is against marijuana for all purposes, even for cancer patients. Even for non-Mormons!
If the republican politicians
want control of my uterus, they’re going to have to take it. All of it, every last bit. Only then they can do with it what they choose.
Jokes on them. I fucking hate it.
But until they take my entire uterus, hands off!
It may be Celiac…
I think many of medical issues may be Celiac Disease. I’ve been gluten free for about two days but do feel better. We’ll see how it goes but, so far, I do feel better.
I do have a headache but that’s it! Happy to have a headache? Not really but it’s a step up that that’s the only thing wrong with me.
Whether or not you celebrate the “stoner’s holiday,” consider visiting Americans for Safe Access to see what they’re doing to support & protect the rights of medical marijuana patients. It’s their tenth anniversary of advocating for the sick, disabled, and dying who rely on medical cannabis to function.
Happy birthday, ASA!
Please reblog to raise awareness today! And please feel free to ask about my own experience with medical marijuana. Thank you!
