About Me

I was a member since the beginning of DU, but drifted away. During Trump, I decided to come back to the community of like-minded people for support and hope. In my last iteration here, I hit 10,000 posts, but will start again!

Awful anti-Cal Cunningham ads

Lol they're pathetic, esp the garbage - bah one. Just saw the ad making Cunningham sound like a Commie for expanding healthcare. Thom ,Tillis, watch out

Scary loss of memory

I hope everyone is well this Saturday.

I had a disturbing thing happen today. I make mental lists of things I need at the drugstore. Today, although I'd been thinking for days, of an item I needed as well as my Rx, I was, and still am, unable to remember the item . It's like a complete blank. I walked into cvs and just nothing. Does this happen to anyone else? I'm keeping a notepad next to me now, and I'm going to write things down and see if I can recall them.

Then I have notes if I forget! Scary experience. I take lamictal, latuda.

Getting SSDI

Hi all. I'm trying to get onto ssdi I the next year. I'm 55. I suffer horribly from stress, anxiety, and have been doagnosed as bipolar. My cutrent job has great benefits, but is the main source of crippling anxiety.

So much to say. I assume I'll be turned down when I first apply. Then a lawyer I've spoken with comes in to assist. It could take a year. I'm unclear if republicans have made it more difficult for people to receive ssdi. I don't have enough savings to live on for a year. I do have a short-term disability insurance policy from work if I went out (third time) on fmla. Then my employer has LTD they pay for. I could perhaps, live on these while awaiting ssdi. I also anticipate being turned down for both STD and LTD. i was for the short term, although I pay premiums for it. LTD is employer paid.

The SSD attorney said they can help with insurance denials.

I just feel trapped and unhappy. I've worked over 30 yrs and really need ssdi, although it'll mean losing 50% of my income.

Anyone have any opinions, etc, personal experience? I feel mental disability is not taken as seriously as physical.

Watching Fincher's Zodiac

I love this movie. Seen it dozens of times..

What's everyone's favorite Orange juice?


Sorry, but old-school conservatism sucks

Watching Morning Joe and Joe and guests praising the past GOP's values- fiscal limits, anti-authoritarian, Reagan's great leadership. The Republican party was awful in the past since Reagan, and helped bring about Trumpism. So this is the end game Republicans. I'm sick of hearing how Trump ruined the wonders of the party. It was horrible in the past, too. Stop masturbating over Reagan.

What's Nashville like?

I just applied to a job in Nashville, and I'm wondering what locals think of it beyond what I read on the Internet? Is it expensive? Any BoHo artsy-type neighborhoods? I see the mayor is a Democrat

FL Sheriff who endorsed Trump arrested in sex scandal

In May 2019, Darryl Daniels, a Florida sheriff called his deputy and said he was being followed by someone in a Jeep and believed he was in danger.

Daniels was being followed by Cierra Smith, a woman with whom he had been having an affair for six years. She was on her way to their regular meeting spot.

Daniels falsely accused Smith of stalking him. Although Smith was detained for hours, she was never charged, and Daniels ended up in jail.


Its not both sides "bickering"

I'm watching The Reidout, and a person-on-the-street person who needs bailout money complained about the bickering in Congress and how it needs to stop and average people need to be helped. Agreed. BUT

I get pissed when I hear things that sound like mere bickering is going on when The Dems are fighting for comprehensive help for struggling Americans! Like both sides are the problem. Just ranting, but it causes me despair to think some people feel Dems are bickering

Trump always reads in an impatient monotone.

Watching the shitshow, just started. EDIT
