First the stuff that matters -
I've updated the Know Your Sources section, which includes:
- What is the purpose of Crazy Meds?
- Who are these crazy people?
- Why do they think they know so much?
- Where does their money come from?
- Are they part of the CONSPIRACY that is monitoring my online activities?
- How do I get past their anti-telepathic mindcontrol tinfoil hats?
That took care of the site's HON Code certification for the next 12 months.
I'm done with most of the Things You Need to Know When Taking Crazy Meds / Basic Crap all Neuro-Psychiatric Meds have in Common section, which includes:
- Tips on How to Take Crazy Meds
- Tips on How to Stop Taking Crazy Meds
- Common Side Effects
- Meds & Supplements
- What You Should Know Before Buying Meds Online
I'm still working on the updated Brand vs. Generic page. No telling when that will be finished.
I've also juggled a bunch of blogs between defunct and the panoply of stupidity etc.
No need to read any further...
Extreme couponing has arrived in small town Montana. I moved out here to avoid shit like that, but I should know better; if I live where broadband is available, and near where cable TV is available, there's no escaping the bits of civilization I can't stand. The clerks at the grocery store were acting like Elvis showed up to buy some peanut butter and bunny bread. They couldn't wrap their heads around the concept of people 'buying' four items (I don't know what, just making it to Superior to get my meds and a couple things from the store was a heroic conquest for me that day) with nothing more than two coupons from two different sources, and purchasing nothing else at that.
Fifty-one out of 54 counties in Montana have had a state of emergency declared due to the flooding. So far Mineral county is one of three with no flood emergency. Yet. Instead we have to have other forms of excitement, like a bank robbery in St. Regis and a murder in Superior.
I had the snow tires swapped for the 'regular' (i.e. all terrain) tires on the truck, so at least I didn't have to deal with inclement weather when I drove to Spokane to see my shrink. Twice. Because the there was appointment confusion. I should have called when I didn't get the usual appointment verification call, but thinking clearly hasn't been one of my strong suits of late. It still took me three hours each way, and not because there was snow on the road (but plenty on each side) going over Lookout Pass, but because the shocks were shot and I couldn't drive any faster than 60.
Tuesday night Stephen Colbert smoked a pipe on his show. It's not the first time he's done that. While the main reason I smoke a pipe is a bowl of pipe tobacco is about all I want to smoke in a day, another reason is the chance of pipe smoking ever being cool-popular like cigar smoking is somewhere in the neighborhood of non-existent. Still, I think even Mr. Colbert won't be able to elevate the pipe from eccentric curmudgeon territory.
