That's pretty rough, BlazingStar. And it's a real hassle having to make the phone calls, etc.

I hope you can get this resolved in a relatively harmonious manner.


Thanks, Kortie. I'm fine. It was just getting poleaxed emotionally. Not a big deal, but my emotions went crazy.

Re: Medicare, like all the state and federal programs, are complicated, complex and difficult to understand. My job involves helping some people with this; it makes my head swim. :D

How often I have no idea what an OP is talking about.
I have to read replies to see if I can figure it out.

I got my flu shot today. I've been getting it for the past few years now, and I don't seem to be any more autistic that I was before. :)

In fact, if what the antivaxxers say was true, I shouldn't be able to use the potty, dress myself or chew and swallow my own food without assistance by now. :roll:

Yesterday ate six extra servings

Tranquilizer

Flying monkey

Dr Butler

Suspect brain damage

MRI, but insurance won't pay

Felt heavy and bad today

Nothing good or bad happened

That is a good thing

Mumbo jumbo

The penis barked at me about the phone

Whatever

What did you expect?

High blood pressure and a low pulse tend to happen when you’re taking medication for high blood pressure. But it can also be a sign of a serious injury or untreated high blood pressure.

Your doctor can help you narrow down whether it’s anything to be concerned about based on your medical history and symptoms.

the flu shot is killed virus so you can NOT get the flu from it. sometimes people get a bit achy and feverish while their bodies mount an immune response. depending on how well the predictions for what strains of flu will be prevalent this winter match actual strains, you are more or less likely to get the flu this year. if you're vaccinated and get the flu, it'll probably be less severe.

Etchiverri emailed me last Thursday to pressure me to take Wellbutrin

But disclaimer said, "seizure"

Etchiverri told me that the psychiatrist said that the current dose is below seizure threshold

But everyone has a different seizure threshold

Everyones seizure threshold is constantly changing

You can't measure the seizure threshold, without $$$$. Please do not try, s**t :roll:


Etchiverri acts like she earns commission

Quote the PubMed article

:mrgreen:

She could have misunderstood or misheard the psychiatrists statements

Like the game "telephone"

Selective hearing

She said only bulimics have electrolyte imbalance

But you have to say, which one

Desperate for something new, but a seizure?

Driver license revoked

Side effects

Boundary

Cost benefit analysis

"Life" is not a Nintendo game

"You don't get a second chance"


Song lyrics

The solar system is a torture chamber, not a playground


It was weird Dr Butler asked me if I wanted a man or woman. And she pressured me

Wtf?


But Dr etchiverri is not my Dr anymore

So if I answer the email, that's just reminding her , about Wellbutrin

Even if I were to have written the world's most persuasive email, that is not as great as , not emailing



Nothing to do yesterday


Lied on back

Played with phone


Ate

Most people bore me.

They wake up, go to work, come home, watch TV or if it's Friday or Saturday go to the pub, have a weekend 'off' where they go shopping to the supermarket & go to the match. Their opinions come from daytime TV.

They are born, go to school, have a bit of time in life where they get drunk, meet a girl, settle down, get married, have kids, have grandkids.

Why? They might as well all be AI robots. Never when I talk to them do I actually hear either depth or originality.

Differences are:

People who are disabled
Aspies
Artists
People who work for themselves
People who are LGBT
People who go to uni for long enough & study humanities which opens up another side of the world to them so they're more conscious of the world and its possibilities
People like my parents with an age gap or something
First and second generation immigrants who've seen another country
People who have been unemployed a long time
People who were ill in their youth
People who are so unusual I can't imagine them right now

But that's not most people. Most people are tedious. As individuals they wouldn't be. It's just the same cycle of a person trotted out over and over again like on a factory production line. And honestly? Yeah I do find it hard to have empathy with someone when they're that much like everyone else and that boring. Social media makes most people seem tedious.

It is quite interesting the list you give. I have found some who have been unemployed a long time to be genuinely fascinating and tallented people... But somehow they are often overlooked as somehow employers tend to look for "Mr or Mrs Average". I habe had some amazing conversations in the past by some who are close to retiring, but are unemployed and have had amazing experiences in past employment.
