Actually doing the work (writing)


I’m working on a book that’s before its’ time. Tardive Dyskinesia, (soon to be ACRONYZED as TD) It’s centrist and slightly comic as the subject matter is really heavy stuff.

I want it to be an ebook that can be updated when new resources (charities) or new meds or clinical trials become available.

My first 6 chapters are done but there’s a lot of repetition because of memory issues. The truth is I want to get this over with so I can write my ‘main’ story. Or maybe this should be folded into my main story? I just don’t know what I’ve got until I do the work.

Can you just put something like this on your blog? So people can find it when they need to?

Indie Pharmacies an Endangered Species…The only kind who understands and cares


I am on a tear to save independent pharmacies being driven out of business. If you read my stuff, you know I have bipolar/tardive/borderline diabetic side effects. When I got tardive my publix of fifteen years bumped me off. My complications were too much for them. I found an indie which is why I wrote this story.

On the road with 3 sizes of Clothes

gainesvilletwo You would never know this by my tags  but packing for this trip to see my father on his farm was murder. First of all, my weight varies a great deal, largely due to my psych meds, namely clozaril. Other atypicals, like Seroquel and Zyprexa, among others, do this too. Thus, I have three sizes of clothes in my closet, and I had to FACE THE MONSTER when packing, and try them on, all while, trying not to get triggered when stuff didn’t fit. I made lists but I still spaced out and forgot to pack warm weather clothes for a heat wave in Kentucky. So we hat to hit a clothing store for some short sleeved shirts after the airport. Still, nothing  I wear is ever good enough for my father, and I’m never thin enough. This is sort of why, in addition to bipolar, I have an eating disorder too. More from the farm later.

Weekly Word Review



This is Michael and I at his job. He used to be a construction superintendant, a foreman. He can fix or make just about anything. In 2008, the construction industry went bust down here and all these high rises they were gonna build just went bust mid-project. You can imagine Michael’s job prospects at this point. the company he’d been working for, Lear Construction, went out of business.

This is the last one, of this batch. I’m running out.

Luxating Patella, if you have an older dog, you might have come across this. It’s when the patella (kneebone) shifts, pops off to the side or front. It’s got to be really painful. I wonder if they have pain meds for dogs.

inimitable: So good impossible to duplicate, imitate.

Fulsome: Excessively Flattering. Probly the type of stuff the Kardashian’s wear.

Thrummed: Thrum, to reverberate in someone’s ear, echo, like in this case referring to the engine of a boat. Rrrh Rrrrh
