Hi everybody. This kid is a good friend of my son Alex's, and her family could really use some help. She's got ulcerative colitis, which as some of you know is horrible to have to go through. And she's only 10. Anything you can spare would help her parents immensely. Please read.


A Blessed Winter Solstice, and Season's Greetings to all!!!



Writer's Block: Multiple Personalities

Introduce all your different personalities.

Wow. This is fucking offensive.

Writer's Block: Oodles of noodles

What is your favorite go-to pasta dish?

Pad Thai. A rare treat since my son is allergic to almost half the ingredients.

Greg's new hobby

One day last week I was so exhausted after work that I took a nap.

I wake up to my name being called. The world is very, very blurry at this point. And Greg's saying: "Quick, Jen! Get up! Get up!"

He sounds as excited as a little kid who wants his parents to get up so they can open presents.

"The zombies are here, Jen! You gotta get up!"

I kind of lurch up, my vision swimming about. "Wha?"

"Jen, get up the zombies are here!" Pacing back and forth at the foot of my bed.


"Yeah! Yeah, c'mon! Let's go!" Opening the closet where our hobby weapons collection is locked up until we get suitable decorative cabinets. He's grinning like an idiot.

"F@#$ off."

So that was fun. When I woke up a little more I told him not to do that again unless it was the real deal.
"Yeah, I need to get some camisoles to wear under this new stuff soon. I have Super Nipples."

So now we have almost a complete work wardrobe. Just need a few camisoles and we're nipple-proofed.

Macro Text Needed

Maybe its too early in the morning, but I can't figure out what text to put on this. It fuckin' NEEDS it, though.



Writer's Block: Get up

If you had to eat the same breakfast everyday for a year (and it would be prepared and served to you), what would you choose?

Bakery-fresh raisin bread, toasted and lightly spread with butter. Mmm.

Hairy dream

I had this nightmare the other night. I dreamed that I had grown a full beard overnight and I somehow had to get rid of it. I somehow knew in the dream that it would grow back, so I was desperately trying to figure out the way to keep it from doing so.

I remember thinking of all the things having a beard would disrupt. It never occurred to me once that I could change my gender identity or adapt to it in any way. I just wanted it gone.

I'm still trying to figure out what it means. No matter what, it seems I currently feel overwhelmed by unexpected developments.

The Myth: People with Dissociative Identity Disorder radically change their behavior and lose their memory of what has just been happening when they switch personalities.

Some people would say that DID itself is the myth, since it’s, suspiciously, much more commonly diagnosed in North America than anywhere else, but let’s assume for today that it does exist.

People with DID have anywhere from two to over a hundred different personalities that alternately take over their bodies. These alternate personalities (“alters”) usually, but not always, form due to childhood trauma. The alters don’t always cause huge, noticeable changes in appearance or behavior, so observers might not even notice their existence. Many people with DID (“multiples”) realize that various alters are present and know who those people are, even before therapy, which wouldn’t work very well if they had no memory of switching. It’s possible that one personality has no knowledge of what happened while one of their alters was in charge, causing a sense of amnesia, but they might be entirely aware of what is happening and just not actively involved. The group of alters can usually communicate to some degree, and might even work together to hide the fact that they are multiple. Some multiples prefer not to have therapy to choose one personality and stop switching, because they are perfectly fine living as a team.
