Repugs have been slashing vital gov't agency budgets for years
including the IRS which is vastly understaffed esp if you need any help
so now rather than bring in more staff.....we're going to spend our tax dollars on privatizing collections!!
which of course targets the poorest and most vulnerable
and every year we're warned not to fall prey to collection scams posing as IRS
this is going to go so wrong so fast
Wonder who owns the private company and how much they contributed to Trump

 Last night I found out that one of my favourite people in the world, my friend and erstwhile lecturer has passed away suddenly. I've been trying to digest the news all day but it still hasn't sunk in. Add to that the announcement of a snap election where Labour will more than likely be wiped out, and I'm in the middle of my worst manic episode to date. Altogether things are a bit messed up.
 I'm still here though, although maybe not quite on the same planet.

Shh, Slantrhyme, if you tell everyone you've got a planet of your own you'll get swamped by everybody else who wants to get off this one!

Lol that's funny, but I think it might be a problem fitting them all in my head, large though it is.

Made my other half pancakes, crispy bacon & maple syrup with fresh fruit and double cream on the side for breakfast.

And then accidentally gave her the dog's fork to eat it with.

She put a brave face on it. Unlike the dog who was furious.

Your dog eats with a fork?  Count your blessings!

No. She gets her food chopped up with her own special fork.

And she recognises it and wags her tail in anticipation when it comes out of the drawer.

 Well, after a load of arguing with the new junior psych Who looks about 12, Who tried to tell me that 100 mg was the maximum allowed dose of quetiapine, which is bollocks  because I've been on loads more than that before;   and about five phone calls to the GP, I finally got my higher dose of medication, and fingers crossed it seems to be helping. I'm a lot calmer and my head is clearer. It's bloody impossible to get up in the morning though, but given the alternative I think i'll take the tiredness.

Cheers flump. If there's one thing I've learnt it's that I can't go without it. It's just finding a maintenance dose that keeps me stable and isn't too heavy on the side-effects. I really hope this episode is on its way out now because my girlfriend starts her new job soon and she doesn't need the stress.
