Where’s Waldo? In the Reblog Button

Can anyone else reblog? I have not been able to since last night. I looks to me like a lack of communication between WordPress and WordPress where the programmers report into. When programming changes are made the Reblog button is the first to go, last time it was for a week. If this happens on a regular basis you would […]

We are tracking it here: https://github.com/Automattic/wp-calypso/issues/22491 WP.comTue, […]

Supreme Court Turns Away Challenge to Conversion Therapy Ban

May 01, 2017 Supreme Court Turns Away Challenge to Conversion Therapy Ban The Supreme Court today left standing a lower court decision that the conversion therapy ban in California is legal.  By declining to consider that case, the Court allowed the state ban to stay on the books, and by extension, the bans in five other states as well.  The lead plaintiff, an ordained minister and licensed family therapist in San Diego, sued the State of California on the grounds that the state law violates his freedom of religion and therefore is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court chose not to review that case.  The plaintiff was joined a psychiatrist and a man who underwent conversion therapy and now aspires to perform it on others.  The plaintiff had previously sued California on the grounds that its conversion therapy ban violated his freedom of speech, and that challenge also failed. By upholding California’s ban, the Supreme Court protected the bans in Oregon, Illinois, Vermont, New Jersey, and New Mexico from the same type of challenge.  A dozen other states have been considering bans this year in their state legislatures. The process of enacting a ban in every state would be drawn-out and in some states, a long shot at best.  Members of Congress have just introduced bills in the House and Senate that would make it illegal to accept payment for conversion therapy or to advertise that service, on the grounds that it […]

Memories: I Was Stalked For Six Years

My first business trip, I’m 24 years old and clueless. The company was celebrating a milestone. Once bored around 20 of us found a bar and settled in. This is time for a stalker, large groups of people, and pick your target. First he sent me a dozen white roses every day. I was young and naive about stalking. I assumed he had money. Then cards started coming and he started asking me to come to Boston. The phone calls were coming more often. I didn’t know how a stalker reeled in their target. After months of roses and cards, I gave in. Once in Boston, his lies were easy to see. The parents owned the house, he lived a small house over the garage. My radar is up about but nothing else. There was a party at a friend’s house, lets see how many are losers. The party was fun I talked food, wine and traveling. He paraded me around like a 100 LB piece of meat. We had a selection of drugs, hash, cocaine and some using a needle. I don’t use a needle period. I enjoyed the selection of smokes. We left heading for his house, he’s high and driving. We arrive, had problems with the stairs, to high and laughing ass off. I told him before arriving, I would not sleep with him, ok no problem he says. We started doing line of coke, no memory how […]

Nevada Falls & Vernal Fall Yosemite National Park

Classified as one of the Strenuous Hikes. I had the pleasure, sweating, beyond thirsty and pain of hiking Nevada Falls and Verna Falls. Vernal Falls is the highest and the longest hike for me. It’s brutal. Suggestion: Lightweight weight clothes and hat covers back neck, Hiking gloves, walking stick, broken-in hiking boots, and carry as much water as you can. Conserve. Very few amenities along the route. In the summer one good wind and you’re covered in sand. Hand wipes are a portable doctor in a box. I had a few brushing, up or down the trail. Hiking Verna is straight up, “Natures Giant Spiral Staircase.”  I was on top of the world. I’m working on this photo. The Jacked up version is on my “About Me” page. Hope you enjoy.   Xx  M  Vernal Falls   Climb Verna Falls is nature’s giant staircase. Where you are rewarded with close-up views of two waterfalls and numerous geologic features (depending on how far you choose to hike). Powerful and turbulent, these two waterfalls will soak you in spring and entice you year-round. Vernal Fall Footbridge Distance: 1.6 mi (2.6 km) round trip Elevation gain: 400 ft (120 m) Difficulty: Moderate Time: 1-1.5 hours Top of Vernal Fall Distance: 2.4 mi (3.9 km) round trip (via Mist Trail) Elevation gain: 1000 ft (300 m) Difficulty: Strenuous Time: 3 hours Top of Nevada Fall Distance: 5.4 mi (8.7 km) round trip (via Mist Trail) Elevation gain: […]

Withdraw: The Scattered Mind

Xanax is an anchor drug in my medication combo for treating Anxiety/Bipolar Disorder. I’ve taken Xanax for 15 years, it works miracles in keeping me grounded. Working quickly is an advantage with little to no side effects, EXCEPT ADDICTION. The downside side is addiction happens quickly after starting. For me withdraw starts on second day, by fourth day I look like a street addict who would sell my soul for a pill. The emotional and physical breakdown took me to hell. My deep secrets/scars laughed and taunted me.               Here are some of the delusions I experienced. Learned a new language Surviving in the desert like Jesus Discovered potential link for Postpartum Depression In touch with my families Indian blood Could feel natural body rhythm Felt small earthquake Saw Bobcat tracks on front tree Started writing Country songs Tweeting Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton and Pharrell, talked to Gwen and Blake several times, Pharrell retwetted twice. I was flooded with people wanting to follow me after seeing tweets from Gwen. I was overwhelmed. Locked all computers down, trying to keep myself from writing. These are some of the out of control thoughts running through my head non-stop The physical pain is unbearable Anger, pain, begging God to stop kicking me in stomach, wailing, screaming, throwing up, four days without food. Having  to transition back one medication a day at a time Delayed Lyme protocol by a week, […]

Withdraw, Now What.

Here are the two best prayers I know: Help me, help me, help me and Thank you, thank you, thank you.   Anne Lamott I have two weeks of living to share with you. When the drugs are back in your system it takes several weeks to peak. Withdraw is on the been there & done that list. The psychological pain will linger longer than the physical pain. I am recovering from physical injuries caused from thrashing around in the bathroom. During the worst days I closed myself off to prevent my husband from seeing me. I’m resting, trying to not overdo it. One positive from withdraw is the reminder I’m a Survivor. I’m starting to feel human, self-critical but human. Which is perfect since I have oral surgery on Thursday. I’ll be back in the grove soon. Xx  M

  A shimmer of light Eyes filled with tears Light is closer I’m at complete peace God what do you want from me I have no special skill Is light a miracle from high above Trapped in darkness, I hear keys Thoughts no chains Falling to ground weeping Is the light a sign of better days How can it be, […]
