Anyone ever vacation in Highlands, NC

I'm really into waterfalls, but my so cannot walk far. I'm researching waterfalls by roads or very short distances.

Highlands looks great, and has an affordable hotel.

Finally saw "Testament" today

Powerful movie about a community struggling with societal breakdown and slow death from a nuclear bomb. There is no explanation for the reason for the blast.

I recommend this somber movie. I'm still thinking about it. It is very sad

Sometimes I feel okay

Today I'm worried about paying back my short term disability, getting health insurance, and living on a limited income. My appointments and meds are about 800 a month. Having panic attack today. But I just couldn't continue working.

I'm trying to be mindful. Take it one day at a time. Be positive. Attending my therapy. Following treatment plans.

Been in a better place in the past. Just hitting me today. The uncertainty. Living. Money.

Hope everyone here is doing well and in a good mental space

Anybody watch the 70s film The Parallax View?

It's a great movie with Warren Beatty.


It's about a corporation that puts political assassins into place to kill various politicians to further the interests of the elite. It's chilling.

And depressing. Beatty plays a reporter trying to get at the bottom of what is going on, but it set up as a "lone wolf" assassin at the end.

I'm starting to get paranoid.

Question about IRS payment

I had my taxes prepared about 3 weeks ago at HR Block. I chose to have what I owe taken directly out of my account. It still has not come out for state or federal taxes.

I called my preparer last week, and she said not to worry, since the IRS is behind.

Am I in trouble if it's not paid my the 15th this month?

Anyone have anything similar happening? I'm calling again tomorrow.
