About Me

Just a poor liberal lesbian living in the deep south. Don't expect me to be nice just because I am a liberal. I am kind of bitchy with an attitude problem.

My patient's dad tested positive. I am livid!

I am a private duty nurse and one of my medically fragile patient's parents are willfully unvaccinated. I broached the subject of vaccines a few weeks ago as the Delta variant was spreading. They did not give a specific reason why they weren't vaccinated, but it is part of my job to educate and I did and let it go.

I found out today that the dad who works in the public, was positive for Covid. I am so angry! Their 1 yo child is medically fragile and this disease could easily kill him. They have another child, 6 yo who is also at risk.

I have just had it. If this child gets sick and dies, I think CPS should be called. Stupid dumb assed idiots!! Gggrrrr!

I've turned into a horrible person and I hate it.

I am gripped with schadenfreude every time I hear of a public anti-vaxxer, anti-masker, covide denier being hospitalized with the virus. I don't revel in it, but am overwhelmed with feelings of satisfaction that I am sane. I am doing everything I can to do what is right for my community.

It saddens me that that these people are selling their souls, but I am so glad when these evil people are gone.

I'm a horrible person.

Anti-vax? Be prepared to pay more for insurance: Analysis

Americaís covid-19 vaccination rate is around 60% for ages 12 and up. Thatís not enough to reach so-called herd immunity, and in states like Missouri ó where a number of counties have vaccination rates under 25% ó hospitals are overwhelmed by serious outbreaks of the more contagious delta variant.

The vaccine resisters offer all kinds of reasons for refusing the free shots and for ignoring efforts to nudge them to get inoculated. Campaigns urging Americans to get vaccinated for their health, for their grandparents, for their neighbors, or to get free doughnuts or a free joint havenít done the trick. States have even held lotteries with a chance to win millions or a college scholarship.

And yet there are still huge numbers of unvaccinated people. Federal, state and municipal governments as well as private businesses continue to largely avoid mandates for their employees out of fears they will provoke a backlash.


I am so angry!!

I am a private duty nurse for a very sick little boy. He has a severe metabolic disorder which causes seizures and his health is fragile. Poor little guy has a g-tube through which he receives his nutrition due to his swallowing issues and risk for aspiration pneumonia.

This little guy's mom is a hovering and "concerned" parent. She is always on top of his condition, his disease progress and therapeutic regimens. She is borderline munchausens by proxy.. Both parents are intelligent and educated.


I have tried to educate them. My supervisor has tried to educate them. I am at my wits end with them. Just venting. Ugh, if he gets sick I am really going to be pissed off.

Got a surprise bonus from work today.

$750.00 Out of the blue! Just had to share my good news. Signed on to ADP to check my paycheck and in addition was my bonus!!

It couldn't have come at a better time as the back of my wooden privacy fence was rotten and we did not realize it. A neighbor frantically knocked on our door Saturday evening and told us that our dog had poked a hole through it and she was afraid they would get out and attack her children. I shored it up as best I could and we got it fixed on Monday after having to take out a payday loan.

So, there's my good news for the week.

Got my second Bill Gates microchip implant today!

Now, he can track my every move! Lmao

So apparently on Facebook you can use the word"ni@@a" while making fun of Barack Obama,

but I can't call someone a stupid racist. I hate Zuckerberg.

Dagnabbit! I have to stop partaking in legal marijuana.

I'm applying for a new job and even though I have a prescription and would NEVER go to my job high, I have to test clean. It really sucks because I have it for my arthritis and it really helps. So, for the next few weeks I have to take potentially harmful ibuprofen to alleviate my pain. Ugh.

Zuckerberg puts the Jan. 6th insurrection blame squarely on trump.

In his introductory remarks, Zuckerberg rejected responsibility for fomenting the riots, pinning the blame squarely on Trump and a "political and media environment that drives Americans apart."

Zuckerberg said Facebook "did our part to secure the integrity of the election. And then on Jan. 6, President Trump gave a speech ... calling on people to fight."

Now watch the right wingers heads explode. They will try to start a boycott of Sesame Street and then bitch and complain about "cancel culture".

Sesame Street to add 2 Black Muppets; discuss racial literacy

"Sesame Street" is introducing two new Muppets, a Black father and son, as part of an effort to help children understand racial literacy.

The two Muppets, Wes and Elijah, were introduced in a short video created by Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind the long-running show. In the video, Elmo wants to know why Wes's skin is brown, so his father Elijah explains the concept of melanin and how "the color of our skin is an important part of who we are," according to a press release from Sesame Workshop.

Sesame Workshop also released a music video to the song "Giant" where the "Sesame Street" Muppets celebrate their "own unique identities." Another video featuring Rosita, her mother and her friend celebrates speaking Spanish and shows the Muppets helping Rosita cope after a racist incident.
