How to Recognize Physical Abuse in Your Relationship

I said I would follow up that last post about emotional and mental abuse with one about physical abuse, so here it is.

It’s definitely more cut-and-dried, but with the added challenge of trying to spot it in other people, this may also end up being a lengthy post, so buckle up.

Before I begin, […]

Remission. Again. Hopefully for good.

The thing about Lyme treatment is that for a lot of folks, it’s never over. I will probably hear the word “remission” several more times.

HOWEVER, the symptoms that were basically blocking the road (the nerve damage in the legs, the muscle issues due to the nerve damage, and the vertiginous migraines) are being dealt […]

Types of Abuse and How to Spot Them [UPDATED]

While this post was inspired by, yet again, the situation that inspired THIS post, (situation described here in the decorum post, which has been restored to it’s original self, because honestly? fuck the person trying to censor me), it’s actually a post I’ve been trying to write for four years – since my marriage ended […]

Whoops, haven’t been updating.

Not gonna lie, I’ve kind of come to hate WordPress the past month or so, with all the writing I do for IGM on it. It’s not like I hate my job. It’s just that staring at a white screen all the time gets to me.

Anyway, a lot has happened since I last updated. […]

New sidebar link – Indie Game Magazine Subscription

I write for Indie Game Magazine. In addition to the website, we have a print mag that can be ordered either as an e-zine or in physical format.

I wrote 4 articles for the July issue – 2 game previews, one game review, and a hardware review (gaming keyboard).

This is my job right now. […]

the end?

I went to the Lyme doc, today. It was not a happy visit.

It was warm outside, the A/C in our car still doesn’t work, and it’s about an hour drive, so by the time we arrived, I was feeling a bit foggy, and that might have led to the events of the visit, but […]

Kidneys are clean now, got a psych referral, and also a job-ish thing?

Life has been too exciting, lemme tell ya.

I took a week’s worth of cipro for my kidneys, and that was some STRONG stuff, because I ended up getting thrush, despite also taking an anti-fungal and some pro-biotics. That cleared up, though, thankfully.

I had my re-check yesterday, peed in a cup, it was clear, […]

More awesome friends, and “new” medication.

While everyone else I know was watching the Super Bowl, some friends of mine on Twitch had something called the Squeaky Bowl.

I found out about it a few days before, as the guy organizing it needed my paypal email. He used our joint charity streaming channel to host the event (a 48-hour stream), and […]

I wonder how many posts I’ve titled, “WHARRGARRBL”?

I’ve become part of a streaming community through Indie Game Mag, which is pretty neat. My profile page is here (and the blog is linked there, because a lot of the questions people ask me can be answered here, and this is a public site, so I honestly don’t care): gameplay.indiegamemag.com/squeakyb/

I’ve been slowly developing […]

Today was the day. Did the world end? Nope.

I mean, aside from the inclement weather, which is somehow only going to make temperatures stupidly low tomorrow. They’re just going to go back up on Tuesday, soooo…yeah. Some winter storm, as far as we’re concerned.

I started my regimen of Bactrim (BID) and Levaquin (once per day), and so far I feel nothing out […]
