      I was zipping up my friend's dress and Moxie our Goffin Cockatoo looked around for his zipper like to say, "Where's my zipper?" Then I asked him if he wanted me to zip his feathers up and he answered with, "No thank you!" I was dumbfounded because he knew what I meant. Silly Bird. I think he was afraid that his feathers would get caught in the zipper or something.

      Went to a doctor's appointment, they drew blood and I fainted. Slid out of the chairs I was in.

      Yikes, that is scary.


      I went to the dentist the other day. As usual, most of my teeth are great. I don't have any cavities or anything. But the xray of my front left tooth, the dentist said something is very wrong with it. "Internal resorption". He said I must have hit or bumped it, it's the result of a trauma. But it doesn't hurt, and looks completely normal. He said it has to be extracted. Oh my god. My front tooth. And an implant put in. Not even a root canal can be done. All I remember is that a few months ago I was undressing and my moldavite necklace hit me on the tooth very briefly. It hurt for all of 1 minute. I dismissed it. But it was that tooth.

      I'm really upset about it, but I'm coming to grips. I'm so worried I will look funny. And you know? Just last year when I went to the dentist, he said I have some of the most beautiful teeth he had ever seen. I take a lot of pride and take care of them. I am so sad.

      I think I will not do anything right now, because it's not bothering me at all. And it doesn't look any different. Although I go to see the endodontist in a couple weeks, and see what he says.

      Hopefully you are feeling better now; has that ever happened to you before?

      There's some twisted irony with these things... Just a few days ago my partner had a tooth crack/chip off, and it's one with a filling which the dentists have previously flagged as having "a strange black spot" a while back, but they did nothing further and suggested nothing either.

      My partner takes good care of their teeth too just like you and certainly a lot better at it than I am. It makes me a bit upset on some level that basically accidents still happen to the most careful people. I think I feel this way because it feels unfair, to me. I think that's why I've stopped caring about some things quite so much over the last few years. I am still careful about lots of things, but for other things, I've realised the extra effort just isn't worth it. It really depends on what it is, but I guess I feel like I've wasted a lot of worry and time over the years about miniscule things but I guess that's why people say "live and learn".

      Anyway, I hope it doesn't come to having an implant but maybe try and be prepared for it if you can. I'm sure it would look fine honestly, they're pretty good with that these days I think. It'd be the cost I would worry about, personally.

      Sorry to hear that, Moonage.

      Modern dentistry is so advanced I doubt anyone will be able to discern the implant from a real tooth. I don't think it'll have any practical affect on your life. Still, I can of course understand your anxiety and frustration about the incident. It does sound very unfortunate.

      Having issues with my computer. ERRRRR!! At least it is a flip pad laptop. Extremely busy....

      Yeah, I'm okay. I'm usually good with needles and blood or broken bones. Not the first time I fainted. I fainted last year in my house. Around the middle of February. I didn't feel that well, I walked upstairs to my room then went to open the door and blacked out. Woke up with something imprinted on my forehead. It was there for days.

      ANOTHER time, I was at my cousin's wedding rehearsal after sucking helium balloons and fainted in the middle of the rehearsal. My mom reminded me of this the other day. I was so embarrassed.

      "Little" rant about something I haven't really been able to vent about for a while. It's just been on my mind on and off.

      The other day, I was listening to the radio while helping my partner and a news came on about how doctors that are suffering from what is known as "long Covid" were feeling ignored by their professional peers taking care of them. They felt dismissed, ignored and entitled to treatment. They were also feeling like they were being called liars or fakers and whatnot.

      This is probably the one of the most mean-spirited things I've felt or said in recent years, but I remarked to my partner about how now they could understand my frustrations and also the frustrations of many people in general with disabilities, especially so-called invisible illnesses and disabilities.

      Though I wouldn't feel this way about any particular individual in the group if I knew them personally, as a collective group suffering from this issue I did feel a bit of "serves you right", a bit of "why should you get more attention than us". It does suck that they are having those issues because the symptoms they have to put up with very simply suck, as if getting Covid in the first place hadn't been bad enough for them. If they were someone I knew personally I'd probably try to support them with my own experiences as a basis, especially since they're also probably still dealing with their own stages of denial, which is a difficult part of any long-term illness, I feel. When I was first going through stages of denial, I didn't even recognise that I was or how my behaviour was altered by those stages.

      In a way this rekindled part of my own past denial issues, and I suppose my upset with it all came from the fact that they felt entitled to being treated with respect and importance by their doctors; as if me and others hadn't been feeling this way for years... Everything they felt were things I'd already felt years ago. And hearing about this, it feels like you're in an endless queue, not by choice, and someone demands to skip ahead of the queue even though you've been there for longer, waiting, probably for years. I don't get any subsidised or governmental help, despite trying. I've never had special treatment from my therapists; some of the professional care I've received over the years simply hasn't been that helpful and I've accepted that there's not a lot more that can be done sometimes.

      On the other hand, I hope there will be some net positive for everyone, hopefully some of them will reach out to communities of people with other invisible illnesses and disabilities and be able to promote awareness collectively.

      It's been a weird couple nights. My allergies have been horrible, and the night before last I had another allergy attack (it's been almost every night now). I was laying in bed awake when I felt, like, a wave, the same feeling I get when about to pass out (like Humble, I also have had fainting spells - due to low blood pressure / orthostatic hypotension). Well. It was weird because I was already lying down. After that, I get this pain on the right side of my head, in my brain. In the back and behind my right eyeball. It was awful. Found out later it was a migraine. It lasted all day yesterday, and then last night it was still there. What the heck?? But my mom says it can be like that? This morning it was still hurting, and my eyeball felt like puffy and watery.

      I'm wondering what caused this, and how to prevent it from happening again. My doctor last week said my blood pressure was too low. He wanted me to drink coffee. But I don't want to. I know guys aren't doctors, but you don't that could cause this, right? Or maybe it's the allergies?

      It does sound like a migraine though puffy eye is odd but could be allergies as you say. Really severe allergies can be really difficult to deal with. My thinking is that he wanted you to drink coffee to check whether your blood pressure being raised a little would prevent the issue or not. Could be that coffee is possibly safer not to mention easier/cheaper to try, versus taking some medication that would raise blood pressure.

      Is there any specific reason you'd rather not be having coffee, even for a short time? I imagine he'd just like you to try it so as to help diagnose if the issue is caused by blood pressure being too low or not.

      Headaches can have many causes. I, for example, will get a headache during the night, if the bedroom is too warm. And that kind of headache is not lessened by paracetamol or other such over-the-counter medications.

      I also get headaches if I have not had caffeine for two days. So I guess I'm an addict.

      By the way, headaches can be caused both by constriction of blood vessels, and widening of the same.

      Don't judge me, but the reason I stopped drinking coffee is because my dream guides recommended it. Mostly because they said it's got a lot of toxins in it, and if I was interested in reducing my lead exposure, to stop drinking so much coffee (btw, I use k-cups, so it's already pre-ground up).

      My "mother" guide said "tea helps". I started drinking green tea, sencha imported from Japan - the good stuff, after reading the wonderful health benefits. A week ago I did have a cup of coffee, I figured, what the heck? I do love the taste and my doctor recommended it. That night my dream guides AGAIN told me to stop drinking it.

      I usually follow what they say, especially my old woman guide. She's spot on. ...Like I said, don't judge me, I know it's a little weird and unconventional.. but, I'd rather have an unconventional life than a boring one?

      Edit: I got a haircut today. First one in a year? Over a year? At least, that wasn't done by my mom. It's a lot shorter now.

      Well, it's up to you after all and don't worry, I won't judge you for it.

      I'll just suggest that there are other substitutes for a caffeine intake you could try such as; drinking black blends of tea, such as Assam or Earl/Lady Grey, they come to mind quickest for me; Cola of some kind, though I'm not sure how much caffeine actually is in it; and Guarana-based drinks (or fruits) too.

      But whether these are convenient for you to try or not is another thing, of course. Guarana in particular is likely to depend on where you live in the world I'd guess. Lastly, I wouldn't recommend trying a caffeine supplement unless it was with guidance by a doctor. You can overdose (lethally) on caffeine, but it's highly unlikely when it's coming from food and drinks as you'd need to be having several dozen drinks a day, while by comparison in supplement form it's easy to take too much by accident.

      I feel like I always come with a warning label attached. And in all seriousness, just do what you feel is right, since you know your body best.

      By the way, headaches can be caused both by constriction of blood vessels, and widening of the same.
      Didn't know that. Thanks for sharing. It was just very weird and unpleasant for me because I never ever get headaches. But I'm glad it's over. I somehow suspect it's connected to the allergy attacks.

      RANT: So, Today, Fell asleep on a flat board that was laying on something. Had a dream about being in an elementary school. Then I was jolted awake, rolled to my right, and all almost fell off it. kind of scratched up my arm. I fell asleep despite the loud noises of the nail gun, air compressor, and our neighbor's dog that was barking. AHHH! the sounds of spring At least, it was nice out.

      Oh, and cap locks are still STUCK!

      RAVE: Made some homemade Jalapeno Poppers!

      Had another code red today. I was assisting with testing, so I was with a group of kids I didn't know in a different room. I heard it all break down on the radio before they announced. Wow, it was freaking scary. People shouting "Get in the room, RIGHT NOW." on the radio and stuff. Then, they called it a moment later, I had already gotten my kids in this little side room. It was pitch black. We had to sit there for close to an hour. At one point, in the room next door (empty), the emergency lights flickered on and off a few times. The kids got real quiet. I could feel adrenaline flooding my body when that happened. But we are ok. Apparently, another shooting (with a rifle) in the next door trailer park. Last time we had one, it was a double shooting in the same trailer park.

      OMG! I am glad you are ok. That must be a very bad area! Nothing like that happens around here.

      I got my first shot of the Moderna vaccine on Friday. It kicked my butt. My arm felt like it was on fire, my whole body ached, got chills, and super tired. If that's the first one, what's the second one going to be like? :/ But still, glad to be almost vaccinated.

      My friend and co-teacher at school, her uncle just died from a reaction to the J&J vaccine. He got it, they made him wait 2 hours for safety, then sent him home. The next day was very ill and went to the hospital where he died of a blood clot. They at first told him it was a reaction to the vaccine, then later backtracked after he died and said because 20 years ago he had a blood clot, that they couldn't record it as a J&J vaccine-related death. WTF.

      This was the only vaccine being offered to teachers in my county *(through the school district anyways). I decided to skip it and go for Moderna through the Dept. of Health (long line, but, way worth it imo).

      They had me subbing in the ASD unit today. I am their back up when the teacher is out. Mostly because I have some experience with my son and volunteering at the Palm Beach School for Autism. I love working in there and always wanted to work in a unit like that. I didn't realize the person in the unit (A PE teacher who was filling in) is leaving until a couple weeks ago when it was announced.

      So after subbing in the unit for the morning, I approached the principal to let him know I'd be happy to take the unit next year if he needed someone. He told me he had just hired someone for it. Bummer! I also talked to him about keeping my classroom next year (I got my own room this year because of COVID; it used to be a small teacher planning room). He didn't seem to think it was a likely thing, which I expected (we've had this conversation several times before over the last three years). We're going to be very full next year due to many students being retained, and we're already bursting at the seems. But I had to ask. Unfortunately, being that I only teach half the day, and then co-teach the other half, usually us special ed teachers are relegated to "floating". That means we teach in other people's classroom while they're on planning break. It pretty much sucks big time.

      However... when I mentioned again that's why I was asking about the ASD unit, because it would give me a classroom and I would be happy, he seemed to really consider it. He said he would talk to people and find out if it was possible. We'll see. It would be pretty awesome. I think it might depend on whether they hired an actual ASD teacher or just a teacher who's going to fill in for the year.

      Anyways... this was a long post! But.. good news is that I feel like I really know what I want to do. I mean, I've always known it, but I somehow got stuck teaching science instead. Now, I'm looking at different university graduate programs for a master's in autism spectrum disorders/intellectual disabilities. If I get that, I could even run a severe unit (like the one I used to volunteer in) at the PBSFA. I really want to do that. I am ready to do this.
