Eeeew ;) Fun fact: in one of the reviews for my work-for-hire books, I remember someone pointing out unintentionally hilarious passages like "Her eyes fell to the ground."

It's just vexing as a psych RN to see quitting meds w/o alerting a provider used in books as a way to show "strength." I've had hundreds of patients say "my medicine saved me" and watched multiple patients readmit to inpatient after quitting meds/therapy and attempting suicide.

Writers: Please don't do the thing where your main character quits taking their psychiatric meds because they make them feel tired or cloudy-headed, etc. and then everything is a-okay. Yes, some patients feel better off meds. Other patients quit their meds and commit suicide.

Now to finish a freelance editing project, apply for two jobs, study my ass off to learn the material on the stats quiz I probably bombed today, get myself into a regular exercise regimen again, and in general repair the total shambles that is my life! But first, a break :)

Sure. I just hope someday high-profile Dems realize that supporting endless wars while failing to support universal healthcare, a living wage, demilitarization of police, etc.--literally letting people die--is what's "sowing discord." Not some silly "Hillary is Satan" memes.

Because sanctions disproportionately harm poor people and the US had *just* recertified that Iran was in compliance with the nuclear deal. So unlike "Real Democrats" who view ppl abroad as expendable, Bernie opted not to punish them for no reason, even knowing ppl would smear him
