I checked the Physician's Desk Reference. Turns my psych med can cause hyperglycemia.  :argh!:

So smack it down with some metformin.  It's like $0.05/pill, and all but two of the side effects are beneficial.

The two bad ones are: 

1.  During the first two weeks, 90% chance of horrible intestinal maelstrom, which is unpleasant.  I went through this, but didn't really notice a difference.
2.  Acid ketosis can occur, but if it doesn't happen within two weeks, it won't.  You will know it if it does, on account of high fever and the super power of puking 12 feet across a room.  This is very rare, but if it happens, you have to stop taking it, because it will eventually kill you.

Any doctor will prescribe it for hyperglycemia or diabetes, because it does about 5 good things for you and only has the above possibilities.

Metformin and lamictal do not play well together, in that it will cause metformin to stick around longer than it should. I'll talk to my psych about that, and maybe be getting a new primary care physician as the one I currently have fucked up the renewal for my lamictal.

I almost think the whole thing is just smoke and mirrors to keep support for Congress from completely collapsing and dragging the GOP's coalition down with it. They're parading around like they just solved world hunger or something (well, not that, since they'd never admit to doing that) despite the fact that the bill is still mired in parliamentary procedures. They've already pleased their base by portraying the Senate bill's success as something that matters, and if the bill does eventually die, they'll let it do so quietly and let their voters keep on thinking something was done.

Maybe they'll come up with more illegible writing to put in the margins?

He's fighting back on the first step because if the the pensions go, right to property and so on is on the table.

Farage was whining on TV yesterday that he wasn't going to give up his EU pension because "why should my family suffer?"

His boundless narcissism really has no limits.

Also note: he was a commodities trader before going into politics.  In other words, his "family" (his German wife has left him and he's currently messing around with some French girlfriend) isn't going to suffer by losing out on a 70K pension regardless.

Alot of the Kippers do like Trump.  I mean, just look at Farage.

He's ideal for them, really.  Profoundly brain damaged Hitler.  He's what they've always wanted.

The hope is that the house will want to put their dick in it, which means it goes back to the senate again.  This can go on for years.
