      Yeah, they know where they can alright.

      Rant: Let me see. I twisted my ankle, bruised my ribs, sore arms and had some scrapes but, before that, I had to go save my mom with car trouble, she blown tire. I'm not feeling too well, to deal with the interrogation from some people that would not stop bothering me. Err. On top of that, I was surfing the crimson wave. I had to haul ass to the ladies, you know?
      I also had a lucid that was sort of a nightmare: https://www.dreamviews.com/nightmare...ml#post2232177

      I might be coming back to DV more often because of this thread. Because only this thread makes me feel comfortable, among all my countless social media accounts.

      Rave: I thought I won't be able to make a new friend again. But I managed to chat with someone online for hours consecutively and it felt really good. She told me things that others don't usually tell me, I'm able to tell her things that I usually have to think twice before I tell others, and I don't feel I'm on pins and needles all the time, wondering if I said the wrong things, wondering if I've made myself vulnerable because I exposed too much of myself. But baby steps... Maybe one day I won't feel this lost any more.

      Rant #1:

      Spoiler for “Rant”:


      Rant #2:

      Spoiler for “Rant 2":


      Rant 3:

      Spoiler for “Rant”:


      Rave:

      Tax refund came in a few days ago. That’s going to stay in my savings and might use some of it for a vacation. Unless my car starts tapping its feet asking for a handout.

      ---

      I'm still job hunting just in case and learned some things from positions I never thought I’d get a chance to experience. I just have to refine myself more and keep trying. I’m doing my best to juggle this and keep my chin up. But, I’d be lying if I didn’t have a constant struggle to do so in the first place.

      Rave 2:

      Intermittent fasting; I’m getting used to it. I’m doing the 16:8 protocol, and I think I can get into doing it indefinitely. It was awkward at first, but it made so much sense. Here’s to it helping destroy the yo-yo effect that comes with rapid weight loss, and for me to accept it’s a continual learning curve. The dietary supplement I take to curb the appetite makes it a lot easier.

      ---

      Had a dream where I was kidnapped and spat on. I knew I was dreaming, but I wanted to see how things were turning out. The guy in question looked like his mental fortitude was crippling away. I started to experience Stockholm Syndrome. Probably to the point where I didn't feel kidnapped. Maybe because it's within the confines of my mind, or, that's what I want to believe. I didn't get to see it through the end, or I probably forgot how it ended. I didn't know what I could learn from that virtual, experiential reality other than being so hard on myself that if someone was more aggressive, I'd feel pity on them for trying.

      Rant: I slipped on the ice while playing broomball and I was going fast and hit a chunk of ice on the frozen pond, so now I have a tropical yellow bruise that makes it really painful to walk.

      Feel better soon, Durza

      Link I would be EXTREMELY uncomfortable! That boss sounds like a real peace of work
      Kid trumps job every time. Especially since they've been waiting so long!

      Carrot, glad you've found a new friend

      IC, I hope your ankle is feeling better.

      Meh. That's my life in a nutshell right now I'm still disconnected from my on-line usual activities. I barely even check my email.
      I've been spending more and more time in my bed. But....

      Rant: My back is NOT happy about that The new back pillow isn't helping much. But...

      Rave: I "passed out", the other night, with all my pillows on the bed- 2 back pillows, a butt pillow , the reclining pillow for my legs. When I woke, I was sprawled out over all of them Such cushiony soft wonderfulness But...

      Meh... that may be one of the reasons my back is so angry with me. It NEEDS the firmness of the desk.

      Other than that... my BP was so friggin insane, I had hubby give me some meds and he's going to write a script for me seeing how my Dr doesn't think I need it. 170/110 is too high to fool around with (though that was a one off. It's been running around 150/103 which is still too high, but not THAT high). Hubby made a good point, I never considered. My bio-dad and his mom both had brain aneurisms (sp). I take after him, so I NEED to keep my BP in check. Uncontrolled BP make brain aneurisms more possible.

      Rant: On top of everything, I'm "trying" to get a bladder or kidney infection. Perhaps I'm trying to pass more "sand" (so far, I've never fully grown or passed actually stones that I'm aware of). Every time I pee, I get light-headed. It's only slightly uncomfortable... but my brain tends to pick up on pain long before my body does (as if that makes sense rofl). My backache could be related to that as well, I guess.

      Blah... time to go hide in bed some more.

      Good night, DV.

      Thanks, Ic161 and Zhaylin...I guess i figured I better get my broomball in when I'm young and a nasty fall just means a bad bruise for a few days instead of a broken bone!
      Hope your health improves Zhaylin....

      Thanks, Durza
      I got a fairly clean bill of health... though I'm 85% certain his techs don't know how to read a manual BP machine. They said my BP was 120/60. My BP hasn't been that low in over 20 years rofl (and I hadn't taken my BP meds the night before because I hadn't really gone to sleep yet).
      All of my blood work came back fine, though he hesitated when he reached my white blood count and declared it "acceptable". It tends to stay on the low side of normal.
      He did not, however, get back my D.
      My urinalysis (then and there, unplanned) was given an improper pass as well. The stench was enough to kill a vulture. Even if it read "all clear", I should have been given a lecture on staying properly hydrated.

      So... meh. He gets the job done, I guess, but leaves a lot to be desired. And I'm too stuck in my ways, lazy, and stingy with my money to find a different Dr. (His office is just 5 minutes down the road and because he knows my hubby, he doesn't request my co-pay and writes off some of my visit.)
      He did write me a script for migraine pills instead of the injection he wanted me to try... and he wrote my acid reducing script as well

      I asked him about my feet (finally ) and how my SKIN hurts and gets blotchy red after wearing the same clean socks for just a few hours and I pointed out that my big toenail stays a bluish shade. He wants to do a circulation test the next time I see him in a month.

      So, all in all, I'm fine *whew*. I just HAVE to friggin make myself drink more. Why does that remain so difficult

      Rave: I'm finally finding my niche at the personality forum. There's a "Type Me" thread where people submit collages and the reader has to guess their personality type or the inspiration behind the collage.
      I've been flexing some analytical muscles and spent nearly 2 days making my own

      Here's what I ended up with:
      I loved that I stumbled onto a way to make my own image the background. But, I couldn't figure out how to rearrange the items which resulted in improper cropping.
      So, I made a second one, but couldn't figure out the whole background thing
      It was the first time I've ever made collages though- digitally or otherwise, so I was still fairly pleased with myself.

      Humbug... it wont let me attach the other one...

      My boyfriend has a concussion from sparring with his friend. Spent a couple of hours with him at the hospital this morning. When we got home he was taking apart stuff in the living room. Then he got up and said he needed to go to work but, I told him that he had a day off and that he had a concussion. Then he decided to take a floor fan out of a box and started to put it together, while he rambled on how that I was a girl that he just met and he wanted to go out with me. So, that was my day...

      Thank Zhaylin! He is getting better.


      I had a dream, last night, that I was working at some "Staples", Spellbee2 appeared along with a dream character named Dave. You looked like you did in the pictures that you posted a while back. This Dave DC looked like someone I went to school with.
      I recall that you guys were looking for folders and a tape recorder? Are you looking for a tape recorder?
      Spellbee, I don't know if it was you in real life that has said, that you use a tape recorder to record your dreams? I remember in the dream that you kept calling me Taskmaster, for some reason, in a not so settle mocking way. At the end yes, you found what you were looking for.
      Perhaps, I'm really the one who is looking for a tape recorder. It is a good Idea.


      Did the task of the month bonus: https://www.dreamviews.com/tasks-mon...ml#post2232600
      I hope Siskel and Ebert won't screw it up of me.

      I've never really used a tape recorder for my dreams, but I have used one for long trips in the RV. Hubby would always go to the back and sleep nearly the whole trip lol. I would create songs during the drive. First, I'd get a melody in my head, so I'd hum it into the recorder, Then the lyrics would come.
      It's a good idea for dreams! You can usually find them at Walmart for something like $20. on the low end.

      Blah. I have to rush off and go to the store

      First of all, I'm drunk. Then I chased a stupid squirrel around our house. Not sure why it was in my house. I completed all the tasks of the month and one task of the year.
      I'm watching the movie "Inner Space". I remember my brother getting very sick on the ride in Disney World when I was little.

      Lol, this thread shall always be my favorite

      OUCH, IC. I hope your finger recovers quickly!

      Sorry I’ve not checked in for a while. I’ve not been been on FB much. Didn’t even know abt the crash until I heard it on the news a couple days later lol

      I’ve been spending way too much time at the typology site and researching the different areas of study.
      I’ve been having way too many headaches, but other than that, everything is fairly quiet.

      Stay well, everyone.

      Know what i'm beginning to realize? That everything i am and everything i do means nothing anymore. None of it matters. Its all meaningless. Deep down i know this regardless of how much importance i attach to things. I have no real friends, no relationships. And the older i get the more of an outcast i feel everywhere i go. I'm all alone in the world. What difference does it make whether i live or die? This was a depressing thought that dawned on me but little by little its becoming more a liberating feeling. Sometimes what seems depressing is really a blessing.

      You may be all alone in the world, but at least you're in good company; there are tens of millions out there in that same predicament. I started out in life feeling somewhat different from most everybody. Nowadays I feel enormously different from most everybody. That's ok, I don't mind! It makes me feel alive, it makes me feel that I am me.

      It matters whether you live or die, because whether it matters to others (and it probably does, in more ways than you may ever know), it matters to you! Your life, and all the many possibilities you will be blessed with in the time ahead, depend on your being there to live it. No one can know what impact your actions will have on the future of the world around you, but if you hang around you will get to witness it, and you get to choose what the impact shall be like. We all have capacity to make the world more wonderful, in small ways, and in large ways. We just have to be there, and with good intentions do our stuff. The world is shaped by that, even if people don't immediately notice.

      So ... is this the real universe, or is it just a preliminary study?

      Maybe not just millions but billions. Perhaps deep down everyone is alone. Doing everything they can to avoid feeling alone. Seeking companionship, keeping themselves busy, distracted. Constantly creating meaning, purpose in ones life. Developing hobbies, addictions. Anything to avoid feeling alone. Not saying this is true just a thought that occurred to me.

      I've been a loner since my teens. I too have found it to be more of a positive than a negative. Good its been the same experience for you.

      I absolutely agree with you. Each life touches another. And i know i have impacted peoples life in a major way and continue to do so. It may sound like contradictory statements "it matters whether you live or die" and "it doesn't matter whether i live or die," but it may not even be so as they can be presented differently and mean different things. If you wish for me to provide an example i can do my best to do so.

      Thanks for your reply.
