Medicine

I’m taking a new medicine (no, it’s not insulin) that comes in a pen. I give myself a shot in the stomach every morning, which isn’t remotely as bone-chillingly horrible as it sounds. With these pens, you screw them into the pen and give the shot. Then you throw the needle part away and use a fresh one the next day. After 2 weeks, I needed more “pen needles.” I can’t seem to get them. My pharmacy doesn’t appear to…

A Second Opinion

When they’re not talking about the Nazi rally down the street, a lot of people are talking about health care. Health care in America has sucked for a long time, almost got better, but then kinda didn’t. Now? It’s going to be worse than it’s ever been, and for whatever reason, some poor people are happy about it. I guess if your insurance company decided to raise rates and deductibles, that’s bad news for you. But they didn’t do that…

My Brain Not on the Drugs it’s Usually On

Last week, I had a doc appt on Wednesday. I hate going to the doc. Actually, I hate going anywhere. I don’t like being around people or in environments I don’t have any control over. The older I become, the worse this is. But I needed med refills and an A1C, so I arranged my whole week so I’d be sure to make it to this appointment. The doc was sick and canceled on me. That sucked. It was almost…

Did Funzo Just Say “Hurt Everyone?”

I finally, at long last, have my proper medication in hand after being more than two weeks without it. As of last night though, my psyche was pretty much broken. I was within a breath of telling H to “shut the fuck up and stay away from me,” which is simply not how we speak to each other. But my brain was broken. In weirdness news, I learned that there’s a way to report people who steal your Tweets. One…

Indian Food

I had Indian food for the first time last night. Paneer with spinach and a seafood dish in a spicy sauce with yogurt and nuts. Also, garlic paneer. H had paneer as well and a citrusy tomato sauce. It was really spicy. Mine was supposed to be “medium” but I also found it intensely spicy. Here’s the thing.I need to learn to make–at the very least, paneer and that sauce, which is called “korma” sauce. I’m guessing that this will…

Clocks

The time change only went into effect 2 days ago, and what appears to be seasonal depression has already hit me in the face like a fucking cinder block–except I can’t make a makeshift shelf out of it. Ha HA! Yeah, expect a lot of compensating laughter and sarcasm as I attempt to throw off debilitating depression and complete the NaNoWriMo. I have almost no work to do this month, aside from 6 Pear articles and some work for one…

Not the top of a house…

I think I have shingles. I developed a really painful rash on my back. Now it seems to be spreading. I don’t know what else that could be. And I have had chicken pox as a kid. Luckily, H has had chicken pox too, which means I can’t give it to him. Thanks, WebMD. I’ve been doing work, looking for more work, and watching TV. Kind of a lot of TV. The fall shows are back and the summer shows…

Out damn Stone!

Was planning on getting up at a reasonable hour and getting a bunch of work done. I’m still gonna get a bunch of work done–but mos def NOT because I got up at a reasonable hour. I’m having another goddamn kidney stone, and it has me hobbling around like a 90-year-old without a cane. Dang and Fie!As such, I didn’t get out of bed until about an hour ago, and will be heading back there soon replete with ibuprofen. The…

Site Launch, and doing stuff

The new site for The Horror Within is almost ready. Now that the foundation has been laid, it’s just a matter of adding final graphics and organizing everything the way it needs to be. Then getting all the staff accounts ready. Oh, and I’ll need some fiction to share with readers. Sad times, because I can’t pay anyone yet. We’ll be accepting reprints and actively seeking new authors. Plus I want to have novel chapters and interviews with up and…

Ow

Behind on work, which is not really a surprise. Computer issues, health stuff going on, depression still not lifting. Woke up today to find the elevator scene from The Shining…in my pants.And if that’s TMI, you obviously haven’t been through middle-school sex ed yet and probably shouldn’t be reading this blog. It’s full of fucking swears. ( Cut for Game of Thrones and Mad Men spoilers )
