    Drama. Not helping people. Making shit up. Being combative. Sure as fuck not having someone else benefit monetarily for something I work every day on while I _actually_ hover just above poverty. Nope.

    Oh and one of my favorite past times is actually, instead of having legitimate feelings, reactions, thoughts, ideas and expressing those, to just be completely batshit all the time. So actually, like anytime anyone disagrees with me- it's because I'm being fucking crazy. Not because we have dramatically differing opinions, just that what I think is fucking insane. clearly.

    [oh wait i'm making drama again. oops. talk amongst yourselves. CDE!!!]

  1. That's not the concern. The concern is that your username and password are being sent over the internet in plaintext where they can be intercepted by just about anyone who cares to try. The information they can get by logging into your CB account is probably not, by itself, all that life-altering, but the primary vulnerability with this kind of thing is a password-reuse attack. The vast majority of internet users use the same password on multiple sites, often in conjunction with a common username or email address. The CB accounts of the people who use the site are not all that important in the grand scheme, but if someone can log in here, they can get an email address and a password, and in a lot of cases that can get them access to bank accounts, email addresses (used for various kinds of important authentication), health information, paypal accounts, basically almost any internet service where someone might set their own password. I use a CB-specific password for just this reason, but I would be willing to bet that a majority of the users here don't. It's a widely accepted thing among just about anyone who works with computers or the internet professionally that it's a big risk to log in anywhere that doesn't use SSL. If the CB crew doesn't want to use SSL because it's a pain in the ass or they just don't care or whatever, I can totally understand that, but I don't think this mocking tone in response to a reasonable question about a very basic part of information security is entirely necessary. Rosie's tone was not mocking. She responded after several responses that continued to debate what is a moot point [which I explain further on down]. if you choose to see this as mocking, you need to ease off a little and maybe take a break. There was likely a bit of sarcasm but i would actually inquire at the admin desk. I hear it is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 130-215 and every 3rd Sunday if they feel like it for one random hour. Individual's mismanagement of their passwords in regards to other sites they use is not CB's responsibility- even though implementing it and a crap load of other reasons probably play into it, there is a very basic fact that it isn't CBs responsibility to pick up the slack of everyone else for sucking at managing personal password security. I have like 800 passwords because if I had the same one for every site I'd be screwed. i change them fairly frequently as well. These are two very basic tenants of internet security and if you use anything on the internet you run into these recommendations frequently. In my mind- the logistics of implementing any of this don't even matter because it simply is not CBs responsibility. What Rosie said was perfectly legitimate- there is nothing that requires usage of the site worthy to encrypt, so CB has no responsibility whatsoever to do this. And, seriously? If you can't take a little bit of snark, sarcasm or slight of attitude, what attracts you to this site?
  2. ...I don't think you meant it like this, and I don't want to try to speak for mel. But I'm just going to say this: In her situation, being on court-mandated treatment would be but one slice of my FRUSTRATED AS FUCK pie that I get served every day. And to have someone say "I also get that you're frustrated about being on court-mandated treatment"... would mean, to me, were I in similar situation, that they don't really get the frustrations I experience []and frustrations would honestly not be at all the appropriate word, because i don't think there is a word] or why I experience them,nor how they manifest. That is, if I were to be in a similar situation. <sarcasm> which is ludicrous. Obviously mel and I are NOTHING alike, right?</sarcasm> --- That being said, I'm not terribly active here, but to make a general thread like this kind of sucks. addressing each situation and each poster individually is appropriate and I've certainly been aggressive and protective on that front at times- and not at others, depending on the individual situation. But to make a general thread, so many people are alienated with one sweep- even people who might be open to a conversation where one says to the other "Look you make me feel like shit when you try to enforce your ideas on me"... and that could be coming from either side of this, yes? Was the point to alienate people? Or was it just because there was anger and someone felt crappy? I get the latter, but not really the former.
  3. I've done the following: -reassess the goal of treatment. -reassess methods treatment [different meds/approach to therapy/diet. Subtracting specific stressors, adding relaxing elements/activities, utilizing different coping techniques, etc]. -reassess whether your provider is a good fit. I have for the most part avoided medstacking, personally, because there have been times when I have been on a very large number of medications for various reasons- if I had such side effects from those medications that we started stacking, I could get to a truly ridiculous number quite easily. I do think it is at times necessary though.
  4. That's BCBS listing disorders as classified according to legal definition ["The law defines the following conditions as a serious mental illness:"] I had trouble finding legal definition [on BCBS or generally] but I have seen the terms elsewhere. Looking over the list, it appears that the classification may be made [at least in part] by how much/how many/how intensive/how costly typical interventions can be for each given disorder.
  5. In response to OP: I would be interested the timing of all the food and then how quickly/slowly you started to feel irritable. [Did you also notice anything else going on? Physical/mental energy, anything else?] Depending on how you changed your diet, and if you had reduced the intensity of normal sugar peaks and valleys you experience, then you ate drastically OUT of this new habit it is possibly you may have experienced plummeting sugar and resulting affects from that. If you add caffeine to that it will certainly also be a factor. Hard to say with any more certainty with out testing out any of these theories though.
  6. Like I should have just stayed under my desk that one week I didn't do much else.
  7. After reading the second link posted in this thread- where he posted something on his blog- I then responded a second time. It made more sense that he responded how he did. I also said he probably felt pretty awful. He mentioned he recieved a lot of letters and he must have received a lot of letters from the assumption that he had no idea what it is like to feel depression personally. Given such a heated, provocative subject, and his equal original statement/opinion... I can only think that it must have felt pretty fucking shitty to read those letters from the people who had that assumption. Part of his entry:
  8. *sees many people actually stealing directly from said individual's mouth*
  9. "dancing banana advisory" Oh. Wow. This will now be added into my general phraseology [<--- totally a thing, right?]. Thank you so much for that saddest! haha
  10. I have a personal policy not to give any fucks, but to demonstrate good fucks by example.
  11. I am on disability and have been for nearly a decade. In that time I have repeatedly tried to get off of disability only to fail [and had a couple regularly scheduled reviews]. I am at the point where I can't even work at all. I was approved with no lawyer in about six months. My father is also on disability. He was recently approved [early fall of last year], after being denied twice and winning in appeal with a lawyer. I mention this because he actually understands the entire process, how complex it is and how difficult it is to be approved. He is also aware of the review process. I discussed with him earlier this year about the issue of my poor dental health and how I really am trying to figure out a way to pay for some serious dental care I need. I have various options, none of them really great, and I was seeking his advice. His advice: "Get a job." This was several months ago. It still really fucking stings. I'm not sure it's going to stop any time soon.
  12. I feel good about my Facebook. I think people have the potential to make me feel bad, [myself included at times]. That said, like 60-70% of the people on my Facebook I actually know through here. I don't stay away from Facebook, but I take measures to steer clear of people who make me feel like crap. There are alternatives to simply shutting down.
  13. I have such a high amount of respect for myself [and even for you though it's really an undeserved gift at this point], that even though I am a whole 31 years your younger I don't resort to making fun of you. I said you were being a dick for very specific behaviors you demonstrated, and even gave you pass- assuming that you were behaving so as a one off and suggested you maybe step away and take a few breaths. I'm not sure why, if you are coming here for support, you are choosing to attack and attempt to demean someone who actually was giving you the benefit of the doubt. If you reread my post to you, yes it was full of correction and yes I swore, but at no point was it as low as what you have written here. You may not be able to help being dyslexic, but you can help whether you try to tear others down and you can certainly help what you claim as fact or not. Personal experience is helpful, but studies and trials will always hold over that in terms of what can b expected for side effects. If you bothered to look at any of the PI sheets- which actually show the side effects that you claim metformin has- they show the percentages of how often the side effects occur in the population, and in population subsets. [And that's quite confusing, you are familiar with the huge number of possible side effects of one medication but seem completely ignorant of the concept of frequency or percentage of side effects in general?] Regardless, maybe you should actually step back as suggested. [i'm going to do the same at this point.] Oh, and stop sending rude PMs. That would be nice too.
