PeeDee, I have lost 20 pounds (1.8 Celsius) between January and the beginning of April, unintentionally. I am led to believe that this represents a potentially serious health concern. I'm going through the rigamarole of getting to see a primary care physician, but if I went to an urgent care clinic would they be able to get bloodwork done faster? Also, do I have some kind of cancer-AIDS?

My understanding is that both urgent care and primary care have to send stuff to a lab, maybe the same lab, depending on location.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it's just a tapeworm or some other horrible, treatable parasite.

Given the timeframe of the weight loss, I wouldn't stress about the waiting to get tests done part unless you're talking weeks to even see a doctor. (Not medical advice, I am not a physician, etc.)

Much thanks. I definitely expect any nearby clinics to send blood to the same lab, I'm just starting to get antsy. I missed my appointment on Friday and was rescheduled for next Friday.

I didn't really notice a problem until it started affecting my martial arts training. I got weaker and weaker, and then I started vomiting after heavy calisthenics. Not going back until I know where the fuck my already meager muscles went.

Apparently the army has great mental health care.
Weird considering they don't let anyone with mental problems in.

Soldiers commit suicide at a higher rate than the general population. It's very bad for PR, and they will put you under 24/7 guard if you have any indications that you might be even slightly depressed or unstable.

Sure, just change the name to Jake.

You don't hear anything good about Obamacare because people like it that way. It's still far away from what I want, but the fact is that it's better than before.

And I'm not sure you appreciate the threat that yahoos pose when they see that "their guy" has got the big job, so now they can get to work "making America great again." And all the horrors that entails.

Clinton will piss people off (and who won't?), but Trump will embolden fascists.

That's what I'm thinking, although the program I originally used to make it got borked. :lulz:

I really like the aesthetic I had for it, but I think it was a little ambitious for my level of expertise and that's why I stopped. Took too damn long to make things look pretty.

If I get one or two more essays I'll slap in that table of contents and finish it off.

Let me know if the attachment doesn't work. This is an incomplete draft of the second Intermittens issue I tried to make, but never finished to my satisfaction. I don't remember exactly when this was made, I think about 2011-ish.

Goddamnit, I didn't become a Discordian so that new people could show up and CHANGE things!


GET LOST, NERDS

Oh, and our beautiful healthy baby girl was born Friday morning. 6lbs 12oz, 19 inches long, fortunate to mostly look like her mother.

Hooray!

No one really disabused me of the notion that everything I have to say is relevant and interesting while I was growing up. Now I have to pick apart bad habits in my shitty, calcified adult brain.

2008 was a weird year in general. Obama happened, and Anonymous, and there was a whole lot of this feeling of stretching after a long nap in an uncomfortable cave.

And then we were in an even bigger cave.



I oozed my way onto the forums in 2007, and by 2008 I was a full-blown PD.com Asshole Fuckface (as we were known by other Discordian forums, back when they existed).

I remember being a lot weirder and thinking about weird stuff a lot more in those days.

I basically transitioned from adolescence into psuedo-adulthood on PD.com. The damage can never be fully undone.

I wish I could enjoy pot more than I do. I've had about 50/50 on "nice high" and "sweating paranoia and cognitive fog" in my experiences. It actually makes me less creative and more clammed up.
