  1. Can you tell your doctor that you aren’t suicidal, but you need to talk about what has made you suicidal in the past, so that you can process those feelings and manage them better?
  2. Do I need to pick through your fur and pull out the twigs and leaves and eat those little bugs again? Only they’re better with salt, and there’s nothing in the cupboard but garlic powder. But I know you’ll feel better once your coat is all fluffy again, so I’ll take my protein where I can find it.* Everybody wins! * I found this fascinating. I need to get out more. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/23039342/
  3. Keep us posted on the brewing. My friends and I did it once when I was about 19, and somehow we screwed it up, and the bottles began exploding. It was...stimulating.
  4. @KJ, the same thing happens to me with songs. I spent five hours today listening to the same album looping over and over again, and that is nowhere near a record. Plus, it’s only one day...
  5. Are you having quick flare-ups that go away, or are having multiple instances repeatedly, in a way that is unusual for you?
  6. If you can’t read your own handwriting, do you have autodyslexia?

  7. Bardcore, baby. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRIfsFefatg
  8. I would submit that talking about it is a big part of how you make it make sense.
  9. @Fluent In Silence, congratulations! Those are very good grades indeed. You’re entitled to be proud of them.
  10. If you can get insurance to pay, there’s no harm in trying. There are no side effects.
  11. Oh, yeah-something quite similar happened to me. Memory fuzzy at best. Don’t remember waiting at all.
  12. I tend to get along more easily with men. Men, or autistic women. The problem with getting along with men is that sometimes they think it means more than it does. Or they eventually wish it did, and they start to make nuisances of themselves. Read this recently and thought it was interesting: https://www.boredpanda.com/tumblr-explanation-woman-idea-being-friends/
  13. Acting out sexually is very, very common. The degree to which a person remembers or forgets is pretty variable. Mania screws with your memory. Some things stay incredibly vivid, and others don’t. It’s a crapshoot.
  14. Whatever else you decide to do, do not post pictures of your vaccination card. https://www.cnn.com/2021/02/01/us/vaccination-card-warning-post-social-media-trnd/index.html https://www.cnn.com/2021/03/18/tech/vaccine-cards-sharing-online/index.html
  15. When my mother was a little girl-this is a long time ago, folks-the signs didn’t say: CAUTION CHILDREN PLAYING where she lived. What they said was: CHILDREN YOU MAY KILL ONE This caused spasms of grammar-based hilarity for her father every time they passed one. Even better than Burma Shave.
  16. I’m afraid I’m going to need you to start a band.
  17. I had Covid last summer, and have long haul symptoms now, so keep that in mind. After the shot, which was at about 3:00 on a Saturday afternoon, I was fine for about eight hours. I had some brain fog and disorientation, but that happens all the time anyway, so make of it what you will. By around 11:00 I had chills, body aches, stabbing abdominal pain, and crushing fatigue. Occasional rounds of full-body shaking. I thought about chewing my arm off before bed, so rolling over on it wouldn’t wake me, because the injection site was agony incarnate. I had trouble using my left arm. The sw
  18. I sympathize. It’s incredibly frustrating to feel like you’re full of meds and not be sure which is doing what, or why or if at all. I’ve been there.
  19. I would be interested. It’s not available over here yet. I don’t know much about 3D generation tricyclics.
  20. My mother has been obese most of her adult and has never had any issues with blood sugar. It’s not a given.
