Effing everything and everyone around me is annoying me these days and provoking unusual and unhealthy levels of anger, which I am (probably unhealthily) suppressing instead of yelling.

Probably a sign I need to have my thyroid med levels checked again. (I'm having bloodwork done Thursday.)

Reminder:

You are stronger than your fears.

They can’t control you.

If you fall, you'll get back up.

Today, you embrace the people and things that make you feel good.

You are resilient and strong.

You can handle anything that comes your way.

I'm proud of you

It is a miracle! Someone other than me did the dishes. Someone other than me emptied the kitchen trash. Someone other than me refilled the toilet paper roll.

It's something.

He failed to uphold the first three tenets of the EMS Code of Ethics. He violated the most basic expectations of a paramedic. He forgot what his actusl job was and acted a lackey of the bullies with badges.

"How do women find some of these guys?"

They don't. They're lured in, they're hunted by men like these. Men who seem charming and funny and friendly. Men who purposely fake being decent human beings to get you to let down your guard and trust them. Men who gaslight you about the early red flags.

I'm inmune-compromised and steroid dependent. I've gotten every Covid shot and booster.

As I told someone, I don't care if it becomes necessary to get them monthly or even weekly. I'll do it, because I've not gotten Covid (so far, knock on wood) because I mask in public and I'm fully vaxxed.
Missy McMurray @diamonddarling
I have a good friend who is 70 that told me she has Covid and she’s very sick. I asked if she had gotten her booster and she said no. I just read that about 900,000 older adults have died of Covid-19 to date, accounting for 3 of every 4 Americans who perished in the pandemic. Get your boosters!!

Republicans offer you piles of dead bodies. That's it, simple as that. Same as it ever was. That's not polite though, is it? People around you will gasp when that truth is spoken but say it that way. That's truth. If anything, it'll give you a reckoning as to who wouldn't lift a finger as you died.

Actually, I don't think we can debate Pres. Biden's record v. trump.

Public health: Trump created a preventable pandemic and told people to drink bleach.

Immigration: separated families, banned Muslims, put kids in concentration camps without soap or blankets, sterilized women.

I've found my experience has improved a lot by clicking on ads that don't bother me and using the X to open the "send feedback" dialogue on the ones I don't like (mostly the Judicial Watch and other rightwing misinfo ads).

Fewer dead rodents and misinfo, more resort and auto ads.
Isa-Lee Wolf @IsaLeeWolf
They're ads. We deal with them and ignore them literally every, and I mean EVERYWHERE else. The bigger the site gets, the better our ads, but just find some amusement in the terrible ones while they're here.

I started having severe menopausal symptoms in early 2022. Hot "flashes" - no. Try "heatstroke" 2-3 times an hour, resulting in vomiting 4-5 times a day. Sleeping 3-4 hours a day. Struggling to understand oral and written language. Difficulty comprehending numbers. Simmering anger.

This is the stupidest, most ridiculous decision. It'll ensure the outbreak worsens, endanger children and other vulnerable people in the community, and likely result in a number of entirely preventable deaths and disability.

Music for Airports is my go-to background music when I'm writing papers or doing data entry. I can't work in silence, but I can't have music that distracts my brain from the tasks at hand.

It's just relaxing enough to make work feel easier, but not so relaxing you'll want to take a nap.
Laura Lawrie @Canyonsfan
Brian Eno said, “Ambient Music must be able to accommodate many levels of listening attention without enforcing one in particular; it must be as ignorable as it is interesting.”

It's important to note that the ruling was based on a technicality (the legislative session having ended).

In PA, most voter registration is public info and *any* registered voter can buy the list. The PA Senate wanted the confidential info (signatures, state voter reg numbers, etc).
