but when has that stopped me?

GooCon sounds awesome! I hope a lot of people come! I doubt anyone will honestly be looking forward to meeting me in particular (and, seriously, your expectations of what I'm like in person are too high, I am certain), but I think it will be awesome to meet people I only kind of know. Plus, most people know to expect a fruitcake, so I don't have to worry about acting too looney around people!

I have like three huge things going on right now. But, one I can't talk about because it mostly involves the wife (and I would get killed), the second involves a horrible situation that I can't discuss due to it being related to work (and I can't chance it), and the third is boring, but I can discuss it safely...or mostly safely. I'm on medication, but it's too early to say whether it's going to do me any good yet. Speaking of which I have to go take a pill right now...done deal. The problem is that the doctor gave me the three weeks of sample pills on condition that I seriously consider seeing a therapist. She gave me two options of therapists she recommends, neither of which is covered by my insurance. So those two are out (I can't afford such luxury). The one I know (Dr. Coo-Coo) won't put me on medication, because he doesn't believe in it, so that's out. And I really can't afford to go back to him either..which means the other options available to me are probably the same amount, which is beyond my means at the moment. I don't know if she will continue me on the Lexapro (combination depression and anxiety medication! What a deal!) though if I don't go to a therapist. I am feeling kind of better (what is better?), and I don't think I am worrying as much (except about things that really do need worrying about...no irrational worry), but results can take up to 6 weeks, and I'm on week 2. Who knows? My follow up appointment is on the 31st on this month, so we'll see how that goes, I guess. Update to come!!

The song of the day is the Oddity I just posted. Go check it out! It's pretty funny, I think!

I hope that the situations that you can't talk about work out for you.

30-VI-2009 or Is it wrong to be happy?

I take joy in finding out that the ex that f-ed around on me 3 times while we were dating now appears to be divorced from the first guy she married, and is now apparently married to the guy she f-ed around with all three times we were dating. I am happy because a) she obviously really really liked the guy and b) now I know that it really was her, and not me. I beat the sh!t Go »

13-VII-2014 or What The Hell Am I Doing With My Life

Title refers to a line from the Lonely Island song "After Party" as I have no questions about what I am doing with my life. I feel like I have three or so on-line communities that I post to, apologizing for the long absence, and claiming I'm going to start coming back and not ignoring the valuable friends I haven't spoken to in ages. And, typically, this lasts a few weeks to a month, and then I am doing other things, or getting busy, or just feeling blah, and there I go dropping off the face of the Earth for another extended absence.

Gotta clean the dust out of here... Also gotta hope no one sees me doing something that is not RB concerts... Yay! Go »
