I remember when it was just 6 cents to mail a first class letter! They are proposing a one cent hike to raise it to 50 cents in the USA.

For a letter under 20 grams:

Within Norway and the Nordic countries: 3, 30 NOK
Europe outside of the Nordic countries: 4, 20 NOK
The rest of the world: 5, 20 NOK

This was around 1992

I have a quilt of labels. I had a language disorder and a speech disorder. Then communication disorder NOS. My other diagnoses have been Language Processing disorder, dyspraxia, SPD, OCD, ADD, Asperger’s, anxiety disorder, adjustment disorder, anorexia nervosa. My mom’s labels of me are: eating disorder, anorexia, social anxiety, PTSD, just being sensitive and having the victim complex when I was a kid. And of course she says I’m normal and says the only thing I had as a child was language. Huh? I must have been a shitty person then and maybe a difficult child I was who had to be labeled because of incompetent school staff and mean kids who didn’t accept differences and because I was trying to be “normal.” :/
