sedation

Sometimes I like a little sedation, when I’m too up and need help calming down.  It helps to curtail a problem–it’s important that I don’t get really too up, which can be a hypomanic issue. A friend mentioned he needs to quit smoking weed.  I don’t like weed or alcohol, and it’s expensive.  So by… Read More »

blessed are the abortion providers

Blessed are the abortion providers.  Thank you to all the people in my life who’ve stood by me, believed me, understood me, respected me, and valued my choices and my choice.

zucchini is not punishment

veg tricks I used to see zucchini as a punishment.  We grew too much in our garden, a few years, when I was a kid. My best friend got mad at me because my mom kept making me give zucchini to her mom, and my best friend was tired of eating it.  Hahahaha!  Sorry about… Read More »
