Current Mixed Feelings

Why bother with any other forum?
Forum rules
We once roamed the vast forums of Corona Coming Attractions. Some of us had been around from The Before Times, in the Days of Excelsior, while others of us had only recently begun our trek. When our home became filled with much evil, including the villainous Cannot-Post-in-This-Browser and the dreaded Cannot-Log-In, we flounced away most huffily to this new home away from home. We follow the flag of Jubboiter and talk about movies, life, the universe, and everything, often in a most vulgar fashion. All are welcome here, so long as they do not take offense to our particular idiom.

If she ever gets to the point where she can tolerate a "people" show.

She occasionally will request it out of the blue. Right now she's on a "Magic School Bus" kick.

She's better, in general, with cartoons. "People", for her, usually refers to live action.

I currently have mixed feelings about wine spritzers. I can't drink beer anymore, God help me.

If it's weight loss related then switch to vodka, lime and low-cal soda.

I have started taking campral, a prescription medication for alcoholics and other heavy drinkers who are looking to abstain completely from alcohol.

Anyone know anything about this medication? Anyone have any experience?

No experience with it, but are you okay, man?

Getting by, thanks. The last few months have been pretty rough. The whole year was kind of a wash. Almost lost my job, almost got kicked out of my apartment, alienated friends. Kept family mostly in the dark, thankfully.

I'm currently in a program that combines counselling with medication. So far so good, these pills seem to work. However, I wonder how much of it is my brain knowing that it's being medicated, if that makes any sense.

Still waiting on side effects tho.

Hopefully the side effects stay to the side. Good on you for taking steps to deal with your issue.

Thanks, it seems to be working. Side effects seem to include diarrhea nausea, headaches, depression. Basically no different from a nasty hangover. I've been spared them so far.

At the risk of sounding like some kind of goddamn hippy - I thoroughly recommend mindfulness type exercises for a bit of centrering to help with at least one of those. And I say this as somebody who would have scoffed at all that a few years ago.

I haven't had any problems with those yet. The pills make it hard to sleep, however.

I may do just that!

This first week I've been on a half dose. One pill with each meal, to acclimatize my system or whatever. Next week I go full dose, two pills thrice a day.

We'll see how that goes...

Tomorrow's my last day at the job I've been at for over four years. Definitely the best work environment I've ever been a part of, so it's not easy to leave htat.

But man. I'm getting more money, better/more hours, a shorter commute, benefits (health insurance!) and a career ladder I can move up. PLUS no more dealing with health insurance for a living.

So mixed feelings, but just barely so. Huzzah!

I'll be the Utility Billing Coordinator for a property management company called Renter's Warehouse. Just making sure all the utility bills for the places they manage get paid on time and working out payment plans and such for those which haven't. They've apparently got quite the mess on their hands and called in The Fixer.

I've also dabbled in being a Lyft driver. Gave three rides the other night and am already drafting a book in my head about my experiences.

Arrow and Flash have been deleted. Got bored of them and there wasn't enough hours in the day to keep up.

On a related note, I recently started Spanish classes. Prolly shoulda mentioned that first.

Fun fact: camarón días means "shrimp days" in Spanish.

Another fun fact: "Zapata" means "shoe." Therefore, "¡Viva Zapata!" can sort of translate to "Long Live Shoe!"

But not really, so.... yeah. Forget it.
