Amen. My sister is a teacher and it is heartbreaking to see the resigned fear that has become her outlook. She has kept her own kids in remote learning only but has no choice but to go in or lose her job.  She knows she may catch it and/or bring it home to her children etc. It’s just awful on her.

I had an ovarian cyst in my 20s that was fine. I had one in my early 40s that was really big and ruptured. I had no idea what was wrong with me but it was painful and scary. Your doctor should have discussed some of that with you IMO. Read more

Ovarian cysts are pretty common but they can become problematic if they rupture or twist. If you start having unfamiliar pain, urinary symptoms or unexpected bleeding pay attention to it. Read more

While I understand the principle, why would it matter if she answered a question or not? It would be a bunch of propaganda and lies anyway.  I hope that slimy bitch gets a terrible rash.

Stanzi, if you’re still out there and missed the GT lifeboat list because they deleted it prematurely, reply to any of my comments and I’ll get the address of the new (and really awesome) GT 2 to you.

Oh yeah.  I have had a couple of exchanges where I could not get that shit out of my head.  One from here kinda still needles me from time to time. My rational mind says “pay no attention, let it go” etc but...  Anyway, I get it.

No Thanksgiving for us here. I am living (for now) at my home in Canada far away from the family. Usually we pack up and go back to the states for the winter and spring but we’re just going to stay put and try again next year.  I do not plan on celebrating/acknowledging any holidays until my family can be together Read more

I’m guessing that neither you or your father are a multi-millionaire with access to on demand testing, experimental treatments and a personal physician should you require them. Read more

I’m a New Englander in exile. Fall is better there. No local here would believe it because the trees turn here too but it ain’t the same.  I also live for caramel apples but I will definitely give these grapes a whirl.

I’m an American in Canada. We usually do our “big” celebration in October then a smaller one for just us and maybe a couple of friends in November.  I know we did *something* to acknowledge Thanksgiving last month but damned if I can remember what it was.

My family is either on the other side of the continent, immunocompromised or both so we will be solo this year as we have been since St Paddy’s. I imagine that Christmas will be solo as well. Once this is over we will do all of our holidays at once. I have been telling the fam that we will be in our Halloween costumes Read more

I recently switched from a lingerie bag to a pillow protector to store soiled masks. The mesh didn’t offer enough containment for me to feel like they weren’t going to contaminate anything else. I feel better with a layer of fabric between me and the dirty masks now that I’ve switched.  It  gets zipped up and thrown Read more

I did not come away from those Gina Rodriguez comments thinking that she was ignorant. I recognized the feelings and fears she was expressing. Naming this stuff & talking about it out in the light of day is pretty new & scary to a lot of us. It’s going to take time to get fluent in this language & it’s sometimes Read more

We are definitely getting takes from very different sources then. I mean, I won’t deny that there are some who want the police gone completely but in my experience, that is not the majority of activists nor is it what I hear in every interview on the subject I’ve read or heard. Read more
