I have a hat! And after three years, I've finally found a good, simple pattern for this yarn.


ignore the toilet


ignore my face

Made from this pattern (Ravelry link)
ecto_gammat: ([st] - you can break nothing i)
So I just need to share this.

I'm sick. I've got something called idiopathic intracranial hypertension. This causes chronic daily headaches (not joking about this; I've had a headache since 5 Feb 2011... that's 879 days of the same fucking headache) and horrific migraine attacks that can mimic strokes. I've also got several mental health conditions that require constant monitoring by medical professionals and medication. 

Y'know what I take every day?


image



There's seven prescription medications in those 24 pills. That's not counting the four vitamins I'm out of (two pills each), my birth control pill, my allergy pills that I really only need in the spring and fall (two), or the antibiotic I'm currently taking twice a day for Lyme disease.


If you're adding all this up, that's 37 pills (and I'm not counting over the counter painkillers, the Vicodin I take for my broken ankle, or the three migraine abortive pills I've got, y'know, just in case).


And I house these pills in two of these containers:


image



(with a television remote for handy size control; there's also another, smaller, cuter pill container for my midday pills that I unfortunately left on the bathroom counter)


If I didn't have insurance (which I may end up losing, but that's another story), my eight prescriptions would cost me $2,701.94 every month.


(one of those pills alone is $1,183.99 for a thirty day supply)


With insurance? $172.00


(Thank you, Obama, for the free birth control; you save me $27)


The worst part? I need these pills to function. These medicines keep all my problems to a minimal level. I physically need these to be able to get out of bed and work and cook and type and read. 


I'm so ridiculously fortunate that my little retail job offers near-full-time workers pretty decent health care coverage. If I didn't have insurance, I'd be dead right now. 


I really don't know what the point of this post is. And I know we have huuuuuuuuge problems to fix as a country (like working to get trans people, specifically trans women of color, proper and nondiscriminatory medical care, housing, and jobs), but this is why everyone needs some sort of health coverage, especially if those people work in sectors that don't normally provide insurance (like retail and food service; a dear friend of mine is a store manager at a McDonald's, and his epilepsy is mostly untreated because he can't afford the doctor or medicines).


So yeah.


Edit:

If anyone's curious, this is my super adorable midday pill case that I'm supposed to always carry with me but I accidentally left on the bathroom sink this morning oops

It doubles as a compact mirror =)

Title: Between Past and Present Tense
Fandom: Burn Notice
Summary: "But in this career path, relationships and self-identity are not prioritized. While spies are trained to be able to ingratiate themselves with others, fooling strangers is a long way from the honesty and communication that people in relationships tend to expect. Combined with an emotionally stunted bedrock, navigating these waters can be ill-advised at best and downright dangerous at worst, often with little hope of success." And yet, despite everything, Michael Westen finds himself trying anyway.
Notes: Companion mix for the brilliant fic of the same name, written for [livejournal.com profile] queer_bigbang. This mix contains spoilers for said fic as well as pretty much the entirety of Burn Notice.

Fic. Great, isn’t it? Fan writers can take your favourite characters and make you laugh, cry or make you feel a little funny in the… No wait! Fic doesn’t always have to be about NC-17, full on, sexiness, does it? No! But sometimes it can be hard to find fics that can be romantic, fun or sad without all that X-rated grinding.

There’s [info]more_to_fic than that!

Yup. I'm in on it too. Signal boosting liek fuck.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] deathpixie at Signal Boost: Return of the DDoS
For those wanting to know more about the recent DDoS attacks, yes, it looks like it was the Russian government trying to shut down the dissidents again.

As I said last time, while it's frustrating not to have access, LJ is a lot more than a social network platform. From the article:

"LiveJournal isn’t just a social network. It’s also a platform for organizing civic action. Dozens of network projects and groups mobilize people to solve specific problems — from defending the rights of political prisoners to saving endangered historic architecture in Moscow."

So while I know many are considering the move over to Dreamwidth and other such sites, supporting LJ is a way we can help support those who use it for more than a writing/roleplaying/social venue.


Also, as a FYI, LJ is giving paid users effected by the outage two weeks of paid time as compensation.

I'm attempting this blogging thing, over on Wordpress. An instance on Twitter pissed me off enough to attempt a blog post about it. Did I fail on many levels? Or does it make sense?

I'm not sure how often I'll update that, but I'll try occasionally =)

As instructed by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] posthoc, I'm posting my response ♥

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo!

Because I can. Thieved from [livejournal.com profile] awils1 , and twisted in my own head =P I swear, these "randomize" memes always come out oddly. Too much variation in my music =D

    • Write down 10 of your favorite OTPs.

    • Put your IPOD/Media Player on shuffle. The number of the song corresponds to the number of the OTPs

    • Quote a part of the song that you think that have any similarity with the story of the couple

    • Ask me questions, if you want!


Not all of these pairing are meant to be "romantically inclined" pairings. I mean, the bromance that is Shawn and Gus is too ultimate to be slashed (IMO), but they truly are one of my OTPs.
