About Me

I've been a member of DU since the very beginning....after that horrible fiasco - the sElection of 2000. My first user name was Lindsey, then I changed it to Nirvana555, and now it's Upthevibe. I had devices crash and I ended up having to change my user name. I've never been one to make a whole lot of original posts, but I consider myself a very active member in that I come to DU almost every day and read the wonderfully informative threads. I can't imagine what life would have been like over the past two decades without DU!

A friend of mine has a friend whose daughter attempted

suicide by overdosing on pills (Xanax and some type of anti-depressant). She's OK and is getting the appropriate treatment. My question is this: My friend was told by one of their other friends that this young lady (around 25 years old) had a prescription for 5 mg. of Xanax a day! I said that I thought it was impossible that ANY doctor would write a prescription for a 25 year old who weighs around 140 lbs. to take 5 mgs. of Xanax a day. I'm NOT asking for any advice or anything like that. I'd just like input if this sounds completely bizarre. Thoughts?

Who's going to their cities "Women's March" next Saturday?

It's on January 20th. I'm a Californian but am in TX for a temp. work project. I'll be attending the March here in Dallas. I private messaged all of my FB friends yesterday to encourage them to go to the ones in their areas. The responses I received were so heartening! I don't know that their is a lot of "buzz" about it. I want the crowds to be even bigger than last year because he's been more of a nightmare than I could have possibly imagined! The "powers that be" need to know we're paying attention. I think my sign will say, "Shithole in solidarity." This past week has REALLY revved me up....

"For a group of people that claimed President Obama got nothing done,

they sure do spend a lot of time undoing his accomplishments." I just read this on Facebook and thought it'd be appreciated here....that's all....

Rotten Tomatoes...

The movie "The Post" has skewed ratings on this website b/c of dt supporters. They say it right there in their reviews. One person gives it 1 star and actually states in the review that he's not going to see it b/c of "Liberal Hollywood." I saw the movie and thought it was excellent. If any of you guys have seen it and liked it, it's not hard to sign up as an audience reviewer. One of my good friends (who's a Progressive) actually said she may not see it b/c the audience ratings aren't that great. I just thought I'd put it out there...

Yesterday I saw the movie "Darkest Hour"...

I'd love to hear some feedback from other DU'er's before offering my opinion...anyone???

I need some ideas of funny/feel-good/inspirational YouTubes, cartoons, etc.

that I can email to my best friend who's really down: He's 53 y.o, is in an unhappy marriage (he and his husband have been together for 14 years), is devastated about what's going on politically, intensely dislikes his job, and lives in Rhode Island where he can't stand the cold weather (he's lived here in Southern California -where I am- for most of his adult life and is trying to get back out here as soon as he can). The two of us have been friends since 1993 where we worked for the same company. We initially had our gayness (I'm a lesbian) in common and the more time we spent together the more we realized we had a whole lot in common. We connect on levels that I've never connected with anyone else. We've been through EVERYTHING together. He's the most important person in the world to me. He has an amazing sense of humor, and I know if I send him some funny, touching, inspirational, links, it'll mean a lot to him. Thanks guys

Can someone clarify something about the supposed "banned words" given to the CDC?

My understanding is it was reported by the Washington Post on Saturday, and I think there were around seven words. Now I'm reading a denial that this mandate ever existed. I'm thinking WTF? Did someone intentionally feed The Post bogus information to e/affect their credibility?

The movie, "Last Flag Flying"....I thought it was beautiful....

The acting was perfect (in such a subtle way)...the plot was heartfelt....I loved this movie. I'd like to hear what other DU'ers thought....

I'm watching "The Keeper" on Netflix and my God....I just don't know what to say...I'm

on the 2nd episode...Is anyone else watching? It's times like these I wish I wasn't single!

Vaping....I used to be a heavy smoker. I've mainly been a non-smoker for 30 years...

(My main question is below in all caps if folks don't want to read all of this-I'd really appreciate what you know regarding my question). Anyway, I've had a few relapses but the last one I had (about 5 years ago) I was able to easily quit because Chantix really, really completely worked for me; I actually lean more towards being a health nut. Anyway, I went to a reunion of sorts with life long friends a couple of months ago and one of them is trying to quit smoking so she was vaping. I tried it and really liked it (but not the tobacco part, more for the sensation). Anyway when I got home I bought the vaping device and the ejuice (with 0% tobacco). I really, really enjoy it. It helps me with my oral fixation and also helps me regarding overeating as I'm trying to loose weight. Anyway, the main reason I'm posting is because the ejuice that I ordered online came in today and my roommate brought it in to me (Side note - I have a roommate because I want to live in the awesome beach city of Redondo Beach, CA and wouldn't be able to afford it otherwise). This roommate can be really difficult sometimes (a complete B BUT most of the time she's okay). I love everything about my apt. and don't want to move unless absolutely necessary. Anyway, she said, "Are you vaping?!?!?! I said I'd tried it and mentioned my experience with my friend at my reunion. She became furious and said you will NOT VAPE here and started giving me the 3rd degree (She's a TOTAL control freak and I try to overlook it). I'm almost 60 years old, I completely pay my 1/2 of everything, have NEVER, I repeat NEVER been late on ANY bills, etc. The reason she has control is because the lease is in her name as I moved in while she was already here (I found her through a service). I've lived here for about 3 1/2 years. I've been around her more lately because I'm in the kitchen more because of my diet. Also, neither of us works right now as she's retired and the company in which I worked went out of business. So, the more I'm around her, the worse it its. After all of this, my question is:


(The really FUNNY thing is I've been vaping in my room/office for two months and she's never noticed a thing)! LOL!
