    Oh god yes. Chocolate, vanilla, or butterscotch?

    Anger Management fail

    Perhaps that’s something else you should be working on in therapy. This suggests to me that nothing anyone says to you is going to be helpful to you, because you’re just going to do what you’re going to do, regardless of anyone’s advice. If all you want is a place to vent, I suggest you use your blog.
  3. Thanks for posting. It’s always really helpful for us to be able to see outcomes. That’s how we learn, and expand our knowledge base.
  4. People do it all the time. Around here you can also talk to your pharmacist about contacting your doctor for authorization.

    ...half a grilled cheese sandwich with a cup of tomato soup. Have you ever watched Letterkenny?
  6. DJ, slightly off topic, but I ran into some stomach problems with Viibryd, and found that splitting the dose helped. Maybe you could try that?
  7. Do you call it hot chocolate or cocoa? Is there a qualitative difference?

      Cocoa sounds fancier, and more comforting. But I call it hot chocolate.

    How Do You Feel THIS MOMENT in Time?

    Echo is right, DJ. She isn’t the mother you should have had, and she will never be the mother you want or deserve. You are better off without her. You can just not to answer. Yup. You sure can. You can decide when to text. If you decide once a day is enough, then that’s what she gets. It’s tough, but she’s earned every bit of you ignoring her. It’s been her choice to bring your relationship to this point. I once cut off contact, all contact, with my father for three years, and believe me, he had earned it.

    whatever the weather

    It’s raining. It’s been raining off and on for several days. This place is trying really hard to become uninhabitable. The warmer temps are melting some of the snow, and the runoff from the rain and meltwater is overwhelming the municipal storm drain system, so some of the lower-lying roads are under inches of water in places because the drains have backed up. The real flood watches aren’t supposed to start until next week, though.

    Even my injuries have injuries. DJ, does she mostly contact you via cell phone? I have a couple of noisome people in my life, and I’ve programmed my phone not to notify me (in one case) of their calls and texts, and in another I’ve assigned a unique ringtone and text alert sound to that person. In the first case, I now have total control over when I interact with Noisome Person. Never again do I have to jump when the phone rings or beeps. I can check on my own time. In the second case, I know before I look at my phone who it is, and can decide if I want to engage at that moment or not. In the case of your egg donor, were I you I’d go for Maximum Recluse setttings all around. I don’t use Facebook, so I don’t know what kind of controls you can put on that (but I bet someone around here does).

    My grocery lists are immaculate. Military campaigns are not planned as well as my shopping trips. Do you wear a bathrobe?
  12. This may sound like a weird question...but do you ever find your nose really stuffed up? Not with mucus; there’s nothing to blow. Like your sinuses and soft palate are inflamed, and it’s hard or impossible to breathe through your mouth.
  13. If you are given two options, one being “Vomit tomato-chicken soup with incredible violence at 5:00 am,” and the other being “Get a nice quiet night’s sleep while peacefully digesting your soup,” chose the latter.

    I sure have. Got the scars to prove it. Have you ever bitten a dog?

    That sounds awful, Mia. Will you be receiving some sort of surgical intervention? I hope you can sleep.
