Hi Irene. I'm in Raleigh and experiencing some of your wrath. Thank you for keeping me and my family safe and don't ruin NYC.

Rant of the week: Politics

I hate talking politics. I have avoided talking politics since I was a kid and my family fought every holiday over Democrats vs. Republicans. Lately, however, I find myself in a political frenzy. With the downgrade, the stock crash, etc. I realize how important it is to talk about it. Enlighten people. The latter is the hardest.

I'm a researcher, by nature and by career, and I research everything I have an opinion about. I find it absurd people talk politics and have no idea what they are talking about. They watch one news source, they believe what they are told. Freedom of speech means people can spin whatever news they want. It's been proven time and again.

People wonder why our government is falling apart. These people get into office because people don't do their research before voting for them. People complain about taxes, but then complain about a credit downgrade. Make up your mind! You can't have both. You have to pay for our government. We can say all we want about them "working for free" but would you? I do agree that they need to abide by the same rules that we do. Not working, no paycheck. The benefit of being a politician goes way beyond permanent payment! If that is why our politicians are in office, then they don't have our best interests at heart and shouldn't be in office in the first place.

Just saying.

A whole new life

I haven't "blogged" in awhile. I didn't realize that I even had posts up honestly. But since those last few posts, life has gotten a LOT better. I'm off all medications, yes, even the depression ones. And for once in my life I feel alive. I can think, I can feel, and it's good! I'm not worried about my past creeping up on me because I'm through letting it control me. I'm a survivor. I have strengths I didn't realize I had and I love learning about the new ones I find in me every day.

I get married in a few months and I hope that goes well. Right now, that's the only thing bringing me down, my wedding. My only family coming is my sister, my mother, & my mom's cousin (who is VERY dear to my heart). But I guess the most important thing is my CHOSEN family is coming. Those people in my life that I know will always love me. It's weird knowing that these friends I can never lose, nor do I want to. It's empowering. For most of my life I thought I was broken, I was unlovable. But these friends have proven that I'm not. That I am worth something and that regardless of how I feel, I KNOW someone cares about me.

Then there is my fiance. He is the most amazing man I've ever met. He's honest (most of the time), caring (all of the time), gentle, sweet, and just a great person. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would marry a man like this. I didn't think I could ever be this lucky.

And instead of being depressed, I realize I'm lucky. I may have the worst health luck in this world, but damn it, I'm the luckiest when it comes to friends and loved ones. :)
