Walls, tears, and masks
"Brand" by April Mansilla I feel so alone and scared. I'm not alone, Jim is here in the other room, but inside I feel like I'm cut off from the world behind a wall I can't break through or see through. Behind this wall I'm screaming, and punching it, but it...

In a little less than two hours, 2015 will be over, and we'll enter 2016 with high hopes for a good year. This year hasn't actually been that bad for me, I've definitely had worse years. Christmas this year was wonderful, we were able to give each other pre...

Pinched or irritated nerve in shoulder
I've got either a pinched nerve in my shoulder, or an irritated one. This is the first day I've been able to use my right arm in awhile, and even then I haven't been able to use it much. That means this won't be a long entry, as I'm right handed and having ...

My Raw Feelings and Experiences With Bipolar Disorder
I had a hypomanic episode in November, which by late November or early December it turned into a depressive episode. I've been depressed for quite some time. It's only been a few weeks, but it seems like years. Sometimes I'm numb inside, other times I'm dro...

Strength Training with a Disability

Whether you have a disability or a chronic condition that limits your mobility, exercise doesn't have to be out of reach or even painful.

They gave my dog useless treatment until we charged our entire credit card, the whole $400, to try and save our dog's life. When we told them we had no more money they told us to put our dog down. Since she never got proper care from them we were not able to save her and she had to be put to sleep. If we'd just been given a $7 bottle of medicine in the beginning, she may still be alive today. Instead they manipulated us into signing paper work to have her rabies tested after death even though she showed no sign of rabies. We couldn't afford her $300 cremation, so they kept her body and disposed of it in the dump. I would avoid this vet at all costs. They cade only about money, and not about the animals they're supposed to be helping.

The store clerks were friendly and quick. The pizza was really good, plus they accept food stamps.

This Walmart has a great selection and great prices. They always have clearance items and I've found some great things on clearance. It's definitely my go to store for just about everything except fruits and vegetables. Their fruit and vegetable section doesn't have a lot of variety and isn't as fresh as it is at Woods Supermarket.

This is not the best pharmacy I've ever been to, though it's a lot better now than it used to be.

Let me start off by saying this is my favorite store on Earth. I buy stationary, stickers, pens, crafts supplies, OTC medications, hair ties, headbands, scarves, cards, holiday decorations, and many more things at Dollar Tree. I can buy 20 things for only $20 plus tax, and you can't beat that. The other one dollar stores I've been to have only cheaply made items in stock. Sedalia's Dollar Tree is the biggest Dollar Tree I've been in, and many of the items are high quality. There are usually only two registers open, but I usually only have to wait 5 minutes or less in line. The cashiers are always friendly as well. It really is my very favorite store!

I went to Kmart the other day for a skirt. I'm a plus size, and not only is the plus size section really small but they didn't carry a single skirt. Not one skirt. I thought maybe I just couldn't find it for some reason, but I asked a sales associate and she confirmed that there were no skirts in the plus size section. I looked around the rest of the store, and everything there was poor quality and/or overpriced. Their scarves were just horribly ugly, their Halloween decorations way too expensive, and I looked and couldn't even find a crafts section. If they do have a crafts section it must be small because I went all over the store and couldn't find it. I'm disabled and have to use a scooter or wheelchair when I shop. While the scooter they provided for customers was small and turned nicely, their aisles, especially in the clothes sections, were so narrow I couldn't get down a lot of them and had to have the person with me go down the aisles for me and then show me what they had. Of course, there was only one register open with a long line. I won't ever shop at Kmart again.
