  • Poetry – Beset by Satan

    Daily, I am beset by Satan in all his diverse forms – but the most persistent of all is the government.

  • Medicare Fees Mini Rant

    Am I the only one that thinks it is kind of messed up that you pay into Medicare all your life, and then, when you finally get coverage (either through age or proven disability), you still have to pay monthly plan premiums, deductibles, and don’t receive even basic care like prescription coverage without buying additional […]

  • Ghost Hunting and Ear Infections

    Man, I’m pretty bummed today. I was supposed to go ghost hunting at a local cemetery with a paranormal investigation group, but yesterday my earache turned into a raging ear infection and between the ear pain and the nausea from the antibiotics, I had to choose to stay home and rest. I guess there will […]

  • SSDI Hearing Update

    Sorry I didn’t update you all yesterday after the hearing, but I was just too exhausted mentally, emotionally, and physically after the stress of the day. Overall, I think the hearing went ok. It didn’t start out very well since my husband and I had trouble locating the right building and ended up walking through […]

  • The Cold Commercialism of Society

    I am often disheartened by the cold commercialism of society. As I watch the rise of the giant corporations and mega conglomerates, I feel like life in general is becoming less conducive to humanity and relationships and more about flashy advertisements and raking in the money.

    Reasons Why I Would Commit Suicide

      Kind of a downer subject today, but it is something I feel like I need to say. Please note I am not in any immediate danger, nor am I planning to hurt myself in any way. This is simply a post about WHY I would likely commit suicide if I ever did. I am […]

  • I Love a Good Conspiracy

    I Love a Good Conspiracy

    Admission time…I LOVE a good conspiracy. JFK. Roswell. 9/11. The Illuminati. Skull and Bones. I love it all. Sometimes I think conspiracy theorists can go too far (Sandy Hook being a hoax comes to mind), but overall, I’m willing to view evidence either way and see why people come up with the conspiracy theories they […]

  • A Few Words About Applying for Government Disability Benefits

    A Few Words About Applying for Government Disability Benefits

    (The below was written out of simple outrage from what I have seen happen to fellow human beings who are genuinely too sick and weak to work, but are expected to wait years for any help from the government programs they have paid into all their lives. I am fortunate to have other resources to […]

  • Is the adoption process unnecessarily hard?

    If you deal with the social service system for very long, you will no doubt start to hear complaints (and maybe even form your own) about how intrusive the system can be.  As a foster or potential adoptive parent, you will soon see and experience this firsthand.  Of course, before you can even be considered […]
