      Who is 'everyone'? And what would be their motivation for lying?

    Had my medical procedure today. I was anxious and had bad dreams but I am fine now.

    I plan on starting a blog series on ABA & plan on having my first post up today: (should’ve been the day before yester’) ABA is pretty bad.

      You mention time constraints, not meeting your own expectations, feeling rushed or under pressure often.

      Yeah, I guess I have issues with time keeping and the like, or maybe it’s just ongoing guilt over wasting so much of my teenage and adult life in the past. Either way, I have indeed finished my draft, I’ll be proof-reading and uploading it later this afternoon.

      Ha, I have a friend like that. Had her house decorated in fall leaves on the 1st of Sept when it was still 100F. I'm more excited about hiking weather, football, Navratri and Halloween :)

    I've gotten some migraine headaches this week from noise sensitivity. I'm not necessarily sure why but things sound louder than typical.
    1. Raggamuffin
      Try Triptan medication. In UK you can order it without a prescription. I've recommended it to 4 people and each of them (myself included) found they nullify a migraine very quickly.

    If I win the Powerball jackpot (not likely), I will change my name and face and move to a castle with a personal army. Life goals!

      Word of advice: Avoid any girls in pigtails from Kansas with Cairn Terriers at all costs.

      But employing flying monkeys could be beneficial.

    The world is against me
    1. Gerontius
      Depression is against you, and (likely) circumstances where you're at. Though I do not wish to invalidate the feelings you're experiencing, I'd like you to know that there's a very likely chance things will improve.

      I realized that the world is against me long ago, and that along with environmental and societal decay convinced me that I had to live away from civilization as a hermit.

    Getting short and intense tooth ache since this root canal. It's like a 5-10 minute migraine in my tooth. Horrendous.

      Might be a sign of bruxism. When you grind your teeth in your sleep. Can be quite painful and impact a section of your jaw and not just a single tooth .

      Simple way to stop the pain over a few days is to wear a mouth guard specifically for bruxism to keep your upper and lower teeth from touching each other.

    I unintentionally hurt a friend. I need to break away for a while.
    1. Gerontius
      If you can apologize then "a while" may not be as long as you think. Tough skill for us to learn as a lot of times we dont know if the other person accepts the apologies.

    So, Montreal. One of my favorite cities. My mother was born there, at Hôtel Dieu, I believe. Still have some relatives in Iberville. Wanted to see a Habs game at the old Forum, but never made it.

    Even though I was born in the US, I feel more like I am English.

      That would be interesting to find out. I am primarily of Anglo descent with some Cherokee in my bloodline.

      That's cool (and a good conversation starter.)
      My family has a British last name & held English social habits until the 1970s...pretty sure there is a strong Anglo influence. Also, I look very English/old-school American.
