A moderately reacted timeline of events

(The reasons for which should be obvious by reading’s end. – ed.) “Misfeasance” is defined as ‘The performance of a legal act in an improper or unlawful manner.’ It is my assertion that certain discrediting and incorrectly defined ‘norms’ have been used to knowingly mischaracterize and miscategorize my experiences, my integrity and honesty in conveying […]

cPTSD and me

Most people jump to the conclusion I had/have PTSD. In fact, I have cPTSD. For reference, all but seven years of my life are trauma, and I’m pretty sure the professionals would say I’m wrong about those seven years, too. This is what ‘toxic stress’ and ‘chronic pain’ and ‘persistent anxiety’ and ‘severe depression’ means… that’s what it IS. That’s also before you add on the every […]

For the record….

Quoth the doctor: “The overall validity of her answers and responses are questionable. For example, she […]

Et al…

Et al…

While finally getting that infected kidney stone (49mm!!!) out, they discovered a problem with my heart. Now waiting for the ‘first available’ slot on Jan. 12, 2022. It was Dec. 14, 2021, but doctor had a family emergency (which I really hope wasn’t a loss) so things moved a bit. In the interim, I’m tasked […]

The Greek Buddha: Epictetus

The Greek Buddha: Epictetus

Later than the original, but no less realized; many classical philosophers call this man overly complicated or even obfuscated. He is neither. Rather, the most literal of the philosophers (which, seemingly, makes him unpopular, given that all philosophy is competitive). The tenets presented in this video are unsurprisingly close to the presentation of the “Four […]
