Are you at risk of Tardive Dyskinesia? Find out now.

You know that rapidly rattled off disclaimer “Call your doctor if you experience involuntary repetitive movements as these are serious and may become permanent.”

No shit, Sherlock. This International Bipolar Disorder Story has some of the stuff the doctors won’t tell us. The TD causing meds developed for schizophrenia are now being used for mainstream, run of the mill, non mental ill concerns such as anxiety, adhd, insomnia, cancer and anorexia (stimulate appetite) depression, and bipolar disorder, so you might be on one of the drugs that’s whitewashed as something else and be at risk. The drug companies don’t exactly advertise they’re selling reformulated Thorazine. Antipsychotics.

Be safe. Be sure.

I feel Like Morrissey….”Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now”…I was looking for a job and then I found a job…

Yesterday I heard uptempo "November Spawned A Monster on Indie 103.1's "Breakfast with The Smiths." Listen at your own risk for depression! lol

I promise I won’t write about tardive dyskinesia, even though our numbers doubled last year. Mention it and people assume you’re radioactive, I swear.

 

A lot of stuff I’ve tried to do this week has either been shot down or flat out rejected…..I’m seeing the quality fade from my work. A lot of it is ‘circling the wagons’ at the end of 2017 to see all my specialists and get all my checkups done so I don’t end up eating my deductible in early 2017 out of necessity.

 

I keep seeing all these Open Enrollment “Try our Medicare Disadvantage Plan” ads. They tell you what you get, but not what you don’t. The lists of providers and preferred medications are not available. In what way is that fair? We can’t even be educated consumers.

Just changing or correcting that alone would go a long way to helping make sure we get our needs met next year.

I don’t know how this relates to Jason (Opinionated Man..OM) but I’ll try to post anyway.

allicatMe…a blogger named Allison

 

wellsThe Wells Fargo Ad that is outdated, ludicrous. New horses won’t do it.

Go back to starting block guys. Think like Don Draper in ‘Man Men.’ He had to market cigs after the surgeon general finally made his warning. The jig was up and it was time to reinvent the game and make new rules. Enter the age of ‘lifestyle ads’ like the Marlboro Man. It all started with the surgeon general sharing his truth about how dangerous cigarettes were. Blunt Truth. That’s it. Like Jason.  And from the surgeon general’s truth…the “Mad Men” Ad Men on Madison avenue figured out more creative ways to lie with images, not words.

Oh, Jason. (OM)

He’s the most successful blogger (in my eyes…) I know. Can I be him in my next life? Multicultural, probably bilingual…look at me, giving him all these attributes I wish I had. I barely know him.

I do know he’s going to make a big difference in social media…he’s going to rewrite the rules just like Don Draper did with Lucky Strike Tobacco…distract from the dangers and focus on quality.

I first became aware of Jason through my friend Teresa. I was astounded that two personalities as seemingly different were compatible in the blogosphere. I came to lean deep down they’re similar. They believe. They’re both great bloggers on wordpress, our larger community of thinkers, truthers, writers and pranksters.

No one knows idea knows I’m alive. No ‘likes’ ‘comments’ or replies.

 

Then again, my social media skills are so weak, It’s possible If I got them, I’m not getting notifications.

I’ve subscribed to get notifications of many people’s wordpress posts and get them for a while and then don’t.

I also spend a lot of time ‘providing content’ to be of help to other people on bigger, commercial platforms. They have high standards. It takes time. A lot of my stuff they don’t run with. Sometimes I hit a home run like with the “Three Sizes of Clothes” series, both video and blog.

Therefore, I don’t spend time developing my platform. It’s a choice.

I also, like Jason, don’t niche.

I’m not like “Bipolar Bubble” because for me, as a reader, that stuff in my inbox gets old. I don’t like reading about how people wish to end themselves because it reminds me of stuff I deal with at times, but not now.

I need a break sometimes from bipolargroupthink. It’s a crowded field and no one ever shuts up about it.

I think about writing a book but am working my up the publishing ranks, hoping to attract an agent and or publisher. I need other pairs of eyes and ears, including attorneys.

This year marked the publication of my work in The Miami Herald and The Tribune(now ‘tronc’) outlet in Ft Lauderdale, The South Florida Sun Sentinel. I yearn for a Wash Post Newsletter like “Acts of Faith” but I don’t have anything both faith and election related.

I don’t want to self publish a book. I’ve read a few self published books this year and find them hard to read. I need a new car, not a book.

I’m too new at this, and am sitting on a boatload of scandalous info I haven’t seen anywhere else (shocking corruption, glamour, Hollywood, real life celebrities, throughbred horsetraining, modeling, acting, alternative radio and organized crime…stuff I’ve never written about)…behind the scenes entertainment stuff agents say they are looking for in prospective clients.

But do I really have anything to say?

 

 

Wells Fargo Ad Hardly Hilarious

wells

 

Has anyone else seen these pastoral images of surety in full page apology ads and found it odd?

I wonder if the ad agency got the memo. They have to come up with something new. Like a photo of their entire management team bowed in supplicatio. Seriously. Horses?

They use these horses and talk about how sorry they are that they betrayed our trust.

They should have pictures of their entire sales team bowed in supplication showing how sorry they are they got caught.

Hay.
