O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree! So far this month I have decorated 3 trees and that’s a record for me. =] The first was my own of course, the second was my Grandmother’s, and the last was when I helped decorate the above tree at Army.com. The tree looks HUGE in the picture because it’s REALLY HUGE in person. O_O It took 3 long strings of lights, a crap load of bows and ornaments, and 3-4 adults on stools to conquer this big beast but it was worth every second of the fight. There were even 2 injuries! Blood was drawn! Poor John nearly bled to death from a finger wound and I almost lost my beloved pinky finger. Oh well…I can’t stay mad at something so pretty. =]
It seems that everyone today is on some type of medication for OCD, ADD, ADHD, depression, or one of the many other acronyms and crap out there. The whole world has gone medication happy and i’m happy to raise my hand and say that I am one of the many many many pill poppers out there. A while back I was feeling fUnKy so I went to see my doctor and we talked about me and all sorts of “feelings” I was having and agreed to try something for depression. So no I take a cute little pill every day that tastes like dookie to help me feel more “normal”…whatever THAT means. Just ask my friends and they will tell you that I am nowhere near normal nor have I ever been. =]
Now, I know that many people out there don’t believe in taking medication for something like this but not everyone agrees with Tom Cruise or his loony band of alien worshipers. Talk about people who need to be on medication…sheesh! I’m all for trying to keep my body pure but not at the cost of my happiness. Since I went on my daily dose of HAPPY I have noticed a change in myself and my attitude towards people and life in general. Even some friends and family have noticed a difference… that I seem more like my old self pre-cancer. (If you wanna read about all THAT then just check out my about me page. Trust me though, it’s depressing shat.) Let me add here that only a very select few even knew that I had gone on anti-depressants so they noticed a change in me all by their lonesome selves.
Of course I still have bad days, or “down time” as I lovingly refer to it. Some people refer to these moments as “have you taken your pill yet today?” days. Such sweet and loving farkers. =] The whole reason behind this rambling post is that recently i’ve been thinking about stopping the anti-depressants and going it all my myself, but after accidentally missing my pill for two days in a row I have changed my mind. O_O I can easily feel the difference in myself. For example, I have started back taking them and today was my second day back on and I feel….. strange. Right now I would love nothing more than to go lay down and fall asleep wearing a perma-frown on my face. I hate feeling this way and i’m sure you will agree with me on that.
So, in conclusion to this long rant – but still NOWHERE close to the famous Chris Crocker, yeah you know who that is, Leave Britney Alone rant – I Heart my anti-depressants. How can I not when they help ME be ME with a REAL smile on my face instead of faking it. Nobody likes a faker. ;]
Are you tired of those sissy ‘friendship’ poems that always sound good, but never actually come close to reality? Well, here is a series of promises that actually speak of true friendship. You will see no cutesy little smiley faces on this card. Just the stone cold truth of our great friendship.
1. When you are sad — I will jump on the person who made you sad like a spider monkey jacked up on mountain dew.
2. When you are blue — I will try to dislodge whatever is choking you.
3. When you smile — I will know you are plotting something that I must be involved in.
4. When you are scared — I will rag on you about it every chance I get.
5. When you are worried — I will tell you horrible stories about how much Worse it could be until you quit whining.
6. When you are confused — I will use little words.
7. When you are sick — Stay away from me until you are well again. I don’t want whatever you have.
8. When you fall — I will point and laugh at your clumsy butt.
9. This is my oath…. I pledge it to the end. ‘Why?’ you may ask; ‘because you are my friend’.
These just crack me up. :p
