Europeans Continue Coming to Their Senses

About mod­els and the effects of the media on body image in their pop­u­la­tions, at least. Fol­low­ing Spain’s move last year that banned ultra-thin mod­els from cat­walks, France is act­ing. The “French par­lia­men­t’s low­er house adopt­ed a ground­break­ing bill Tues­day that would make it ille­gal for anyone—including fash­ion mag­a­zines, adver­tis­ers and Web sites—to pub­licly incite […]

Thank Goddess That’s Over

This was, offi­cial­ly, the Day of Dri­ving All Over Atlanta. Since Sam did all of the dri­ving, and I actu­al­ly only had to go to one of the five sched­uled appoint­ments, it’s ridicu­lous that I’m even tired. My poor sweet­ie is exhaust­ed! We’ve all seen our respec­tive health care providers, though, and Katie did most […]

Book Joy! And Stuff

I’m so tick­led! In the last two weeks, I’ve found not one, but two books that Sam and I have want­ed for ages at good prices on eBay! First, I’ve been look­ing for See­ing Red: The Rap­ture of Red­heads by Howard Schatz for years and years. Seri­ous­ly, it has to be at least five years since Sam […]

Extreme Introvert Attack In Progress

Seri­ous­ly. I did­n’t even want to make a post, because it counts as inter­act­ing with the world. But hey, that’s the price of Blog365, right? I remem­bered those “Writer’s Block” prompts on LJ, and decid­ed to try that as a starter. Who comes up with these things? One of them was about what you’d want […]

Mah tahred hurts

Read it pho­net­i­cal­ly. When I’m real­ly tired, I fall back into the Alaba­ma accent. Made it to my appoint­ment this morn­ing. Made it to Katie’s appoint­ment on the oth­er side of the world. Then the car would­n’t crank. In fact, it would­n’t do any­thing at all. Not even the auto­mat­ic door locks were work­ing. No […]

Another One Down

I fin­ished up week 3 of the semes­ter, which means that we’re almost at the halfway point. I real­ly, real­ly want to get done with both class­es this semes­ter. I’ve had to drop the man­age­ment class twice in the past, and I’m tired of it! The human­i­ties class isn’t that bad, oth­er than the “My Country […]

FMS at PostSecret

Did any­one else see this at Post­Se­cret today? I was made aware of it by a post to the Live­Jour­nal Fibromyal­gia com­mu­ni­ty. Reac­tions there are fair­ly neg­a­tive because so many of us have had bad expe­ri­ences with peo­ple who think we’re malin­ger­ing. I have mixed feel­ings, though. I don’t exact­ly share the sen­ti­ments expressed in […]

Cortisol and FMS and CFS/ME?

There’s been a lot of buzz over the past week about a study pub­lished in the Jour­nal of Chron­ic Fatigue Syn­drome that sug­gests treat­ing fibromyal­gia and ME/CFS with cor­ti­sol (a steroid), based on the fact that most patients have low cor­ti­sol lev­els. I do not have access to that pub­li­ca­tion but would like to point […]
