    Under the glitter I live in the dust
  1. Welcome again

    Hi Everyone, I thought I'd type an introduction since it's been years since I've been on cb. And stuff has changed since I've last been here. Currently I am on my second quarter for a Masters of Arts in Education w teaching credential. Let me say this: I LOVE SCHOOL!!! (and I got all A's my first quarter and I'm really proud of that). I hesitated about getting accommodations because it's a lot of heavy reading and if you don't read you can't participate in class. So, I would usually go to the library when my kid was in school and I would work. My kid - 5th grade and she has the lovely mark of being "Twice Exceptional." You ask what that is = gifted + an IEP. An IEP is a individualized education plan for students who have issues that prevent them from learning in the normal school environment. She has become very anxious and sometimes depressed because, get ready for this........ Her dad suicided in Nov 3, 2016. So, yeah, she's a little messed up. Her dad was a member of crazymeds and CB. That's how we met. If you are suicidal I'd suggest not asking for my advice because my views have greatly shifted against the current thoughts in the mental health world. The big thing that brought me back to CB was the CA law of recreational marijuana now being for sale (oh, we will fight Jeff Sessions). I don't use. But I did have a friend on CB who did and unfortunately he passed away many years ago. His mother wrote me a card to let me know about the loss. I can't imagine the pain it took her to write that to me but if she didn't I would have never known. Anyway, now that pot is legal I think about him all the time. In CA there are a lot of radio commercials that started on Jan 1 reminding us that "being high can also get you a dui." Make Books Not Bombs, db
