    A DMV appointment got completely blown due to them being closed several days after our hurricane here in FL. There was no email about them closing, and an automatic appointment reminder was even sent to me -- showing up on time to a shut building despite power being back up, the appointment still saying set and no notice on the door was a special kind of frustrating, and it took me 3 weeks to get this appointment even (they've been backlogged for ages), so who knows when they'll get me in next?

    Those types of people also seem to be the same exact types that have little to no concern about leaving you to constantly search and wait for them. Some of them even have a regular habit of cancelling at the very last minute, or always claim to be unsure, oblivious and say maybe to all sorts of plans and invitations, sometimes even to the point of just having you wait for nothing at all.

    However, I understand that saying no can be very awkward too, since people can get disappointed even if you are tactful and direct. Or they're just busy or uninterested, and it also just puts people on the spot. Thank you for somehow indirectly helping me finally see the connection between the two. Those seem to be some signs to look out for.

    This also reminds me of some of the other reasons as to why one can end up alone due to circumstance, even while actually making the effort to put one's self out there. I guess that's why I've been often told that making and keeping friends doesn't really need a push at all times. No wonder why it truly is more of a go with the flow thing, with you either simply clicking or not.

    "Christians" who boil Christianity down to
    1. Vote Republican
    2. Hate "Fags"
    and
    3. John 3:16 and accepting Jesus Christ as your "personal savior" (a phrase that occurs precisely ZERO times in the Bible.)

    It infuriates me to no end that there even IS a "Religious Right."
    These "christians" advocate the PRECISE FUCKING OPPOSITE of what Jesus was saying and make me fucking scared to say that i follow the teachings of christ (love, charity, compassion, forgiveness,) lest they think it means i'm a gun toting homophobic xenophobic republican who wants to deny people food stamps and healthcare.

    Matthew 22: 35-40

    Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying, Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

    There's an individual here who says that she wants US to find HER a new job and to send her resume off for her. Not only that, but she FOUND some jobs she wants us to apply to for her. Like, bitch, take your sorry ass over to their website and click "submit" just like everyone else has to do.

    Oh and she also has "functional limitations that prevent her from high stress work or duties that may expose her to information about traumatic events that individuals may have experienced" and she wants to apply to jobs like a Patient Relations Assistant and Patient Representative. Oh, you don't think the patients will want to talk about why they're in the hospital? Or that when you review their files to see why they need a patient rep you won't see anything that's traumatic?

    One guy - not here, just saw this through the grapevine - was looking for a job that didn't require him to sit for too long. Or stand for too long. Or walk too much. I mean ffs.

    I can't tell if I'm irrationally angry about this or not.

    I could never hear another song by The Lumineers or Mumford and Sons, I'd be completely cool with that.

    Jesus, does every song sound exactly the same to me.

    okay part of the reason i'm posting this is to see if anyone else has experienced it or knows someone who has.

    i get something akin to deja vu. But this isn't run of the mill deja vu. It's fucking crippling, debilitating, utterly fucking horrifying.

    Here's what happens: something will kindle a memory that seems to come from a dream i've had recently. one bit leads to another which leads to several more, but they are almost impossible to hold onto. but there is SO MUCH TO IT that it suddenly feels like i'm seeing into an alternate dimension: an alternate version of myself that has experienced all of these things. Sometimes it seems that these "memories" run right up to the moment the incident started.
    And in this alternate deja vu dimension, something is horribly, horribly wrong (although i can't put my finger on what it is.) It makes my fucking blood run cold. It LITERALLY does the thing where it makes my insides feel cold. It renders me utterly terrified and the fear is worse than anything i've ever experienced.

    Sorry for double post, but i wanted to lay this on you.

    Man, trazadone never worked that well for me either, but another med called Doxepin has worked WONDERS for me for YEARS.

    neurologist
    I've notice the experience of deja vu happening more in my older age as opposed to when i was in my 20/30's
    for me the occurrence is usually tied into something triggering a memory from a more recent dream. the sensation at such deja vu moments is followed by experiencing/reliving a feeling or sensation for (what would be a false memory-because it was just) a sequence of a dream being recalled.
    though (unpleasant sounding-) if my blood ran cold or i started feeling like i was having a bad trip, and it was often enough, id have a neurologist check me noggin..

    Jury Duty summons. I got the call and everyone before me during screening made up excuse and lie after another to make them seem unfair to get themselves thrown off. My fucking brain isn’t hard wired to make up shit, lie or be an asshole to get thrown off. It landed me a spot as a juror unfortunately. Day 3 now. This case can take up to next Monday if need be...it sucks.

    family drama is such bullshit. In May I asked my sister if she wanted to spend Christmas together: in September I find out she is going on vacation with my cousin instead. She booked a trip to a holiday resort at exactly the same time I am travelling to Europe. She's been avoiding me for years now, and abruptly cancelled a visit to us she'd arranged in April with no proper explanation. I have confronted her about it asking what the deal is, but I get no proper response, just insincere bullshit she obviously can not believe. Now also my wife is saying she doesn't want to go visit our cousins for Thanksgiving: she always privileges time with her family, and always makes drama when it's anything to do with my family. My daughter barely knows my side of the family; there always seems to be drama from them, and drama from my wife about hanging out with them, and stuck in the middle of this my response has tended to be: fuck it, I'm not going to even bother, it's too much aggravation. But now I'm getting frustrated at that, it's bullshit on both sides and I'm tired of it.

    Trigger warning: McDonalds.

    Holy hell... You know, I've put some terrible substances in my body over the years, but I think the fucking French fries I got last night at McDonald's were the closest thing I've come to just ingesting pure poison. I feel like I ate something that was like the fake food play-dough. Twenty minutes or so after eating that stuff, I found myself violently vomiting in the back yard.

    What I puked up did not look like regurgitated fries. It looked like pink slime. After throwing up, I literally felt like the air I was breathing was coated in some starchy fog, and that no matter how much I tried to stay calm and just breathe, I wasn't getting enough oxygen. My heart started racing, and my mouth swelled up like I had just eaten a giant spoonful of salt and then chugged it down with a pint of soy sauce. It got so bad I actually considered rushing myself down to the emergency room.

    This morning I feel like I'm getting better, but I could barely sleep because of how badly my stomach lurched all through the night. I feel like I should grab a poster board and stand outside the local McDonalds and protest.

    We have a weekly conference call here every Thursday with our central office. It's been going on for years and this is not a surprise to anyone. That's not the part that pisses me off, it just sets the mood.

    I send out the agenda today to everyone in the office and I get a response back that the phone number for the call is wrong, and can I provide the correct number. My first impulse is "I have been provided the same information you have. Why do you think I'm hiding the real number?" but instead I just ask why it isn't working. "It just isn't, can you give me the right number." Well the only number I have is the one I sent you. "That number is wrong, here, look." I look at what is typed and compare it to the actual calendar invite and yup, they match. So I send that back and say it's the same number and I get a "well it's still wrong."

    OK then.
