Honestly, you get hurt-it’s your fault!

Leave a comment

I don’t know how many times, I’ve informed people at work, NOT to sneak up on me, NOT to put their hands on me, and for the love of your deity, NOT TO ATTEMPT TO SCARE ME! I am NOT a fan of pranks! Call me crazy but after surviving domestic violence where I was beaten on a daily basis, yeah, fuck you! I don’t like it, AT ALL!

I am a disabled Veteran, a survivor of Domestic Violence and Rape! I don’t fucking play around with my safety! The keyword here is VETERAN! I’ve been trained to HURT people! And I do! Not my fault if you don’t listen to the rules!!!

Thank you!

While some are celebrating the start of summer and having BBQs with friends and family.

Please don’t forget those that gave of themselves so that you can have that bbq; not everyone’s family and friends made it home!

Thank you!!

1) So I caught two ppl yesterday posting as friends on facebook and attempting to do who knows what. I emailed my friends and the scammers (?) got reported and taken down.

2) Then for those that use Indiana Credit Union specifically the Marion, Indiana Branch. You might want to rethink that!! Within the past month, there have been ppl that have been closing and transferring to other banks. WHY? because of multiple overdrafts that have been happening in the past three months. I smell a bad egg in their location. And yes, I’m transferring very, very soon!!! One of the tellers the other day called me and I quote, “A fucking stupid idiot!” When I asked to be transferred to her supervisor, she hung up on me. When I called back in and said hello, she hung up on me. I attempted to call the branch in Muncie, and they apologized but that they were busy.  So really it’s this one branch that is being obnoxious, rude and I think sneaky about something…. six ppl that are transferring their accounts in a week period, can you smell it?

 

and woohoo TGIF!! is it quitting time, yet? LOL 😛

 

11/11/15 Poppy

Poppy

The red poppy many of us pin to our coats in November was originally created to help us remember those who have fought in war.

 

The Red Poppy pin

What it means: We wear a red poppy over any other flower because it grows wild in many fields in northern France and Belgium. This is where some of the deadliest battles of World War One took place and many men died. Poppies are tough flowers, and can grow anywhere, but are also delicate. It is thought they are a fitting emblem to remember those who died.

How to wear it: Many say on the left, symbolising that you keep those who died close to your heart. It’s also where military medals are worn. Others say men should wear it on the left and women on the right, like you would a badge or brooch. There are also many people who say that the leaf should point to 11 o’clock. The Royal British Legion told Newsbeat: “There is no right or wrong way to wear a poppy. It is a matter of personal choice whether an individual chooses to wear a poppy and also how they choose to wear it. The best way to wear a poppy is to wear it with pride.”

Hero- Gladys Osmond

Gladys Osmond

Gladys Osmond, who wrote thousands of letters to soldiers, mourned
A Newfoundland grandmother, who hand wrote “hundreds of thousands” of letters to troops overseas, has passed away at the age of 91
By Nick Logan Global News, January 16, 2015 6:56 pm
Gladys Osmond, who became known as “Dear Gladys,” founded the Granny Brigade to “bring valuable and tangible moral support to the men and women in uniform” serving overseas in the Canadian Forces, the Dept. of National Defence (DND) said in a statement on Friday.
According to DND, Osmond passed away on Wednesday.
“I was deeply saddened to learn of Ms. Gladys Osmond’s passing this week in Springdale, Newfoundland,” Chief of Defence Staff Gen. Tom Lawson said in the statement. “She was a dear and true friend of the Canadian Armed Forces.”
Global News spoke with Osmond in 2011, when she said she composed “more than a thousand letters every month,” not to mention countless emails.
“Just because I’m available to do something and I want to make something useful of myself,” Osmond told Global News reporter Ross Lord at the time. “I’ve got time on my hands.”
Osmond began writing to troops in 1983.
She wrote whatever was on her mind, from the weather to what’s happening in Canada. She said she felt like the troops she wrote to were “like [her] children.”
In 2006 she received the Canadian Forces Medallion for Distinguished Service for her efforts.
Osmond, who also wrote a book about her years of corresponding with Canadian soldiers, told Global News she had hoped to continue writing her messages until she reached the age of 100.
She will be laid to rest in her hometown of Springdale, where she was born on Aug. 12, 1923, at the Salvation Army Citadel.

Veteran’s day is upon us:  Tuesday, November 11th. I would really like to see this video shared amongst your social sites! So far, this is one that I really like! *Tear Warning!* If  you are, related to, or support our troops! Please Share! thank you! ❤

I am a veteran! I am one of 1% that have served in our Armed Forces. My father is also a Veteran. We are both DAV’s,  Disabled American Veterans. My paternal grandfather was in the Army, and my maternal grandfather was in the Navy! I have extended; non-blood siblings that are in all services, past and present!

omg… health issues…. again…

so ya’ll have noticed by now, no updates since the 2nd. Well I didn’t do any updates on the weekend, I usually take those off. And then on Monday, the 5th. I was having shooting pains in my right arm, chest pain, dizziness and shortness of breath. And after having a few TIA’s and a possible stroke (?) I decided at lunch to go to the VA ER in town. And next thing you know, I’m hooked up to monitor’s, doing the blood draw, getting a shot, and passing out…

yeah, I was prepared to be admitted! but NOOOOOOOOOO!
get this, the hospital they called had no beds. Okay, SO?! There are at least five other hospital’s that they could’ve transferred me to! So what the eff??!!

They kept me till my blood pressure dropped to a ‘reasonable’ level, and then released me with a 24 hour bed rest. No meds, no pain meds, no NADA! “Oh your primary doctor should be calling you to schedule a follow up.” No seriously, really? DUH!

OH Yes! I’m a little more than ticked!! I am filing a complaint. This is effin’ ridiculous. So we want to admit you, but since the one hospital we tried has no beds, you can go home? WTF?!

And okay, my bp is actually better today, and the side effects from the shot I got have gone away. But OMG! My right shoulder through my bicep muscle is killing me. I’ve taken my Tylenol, and I’ve been icing it whenever possible. And now I’m trying to locate a sling, as it feels better when it’s elevated. But obviously I’m still typing with it. Ah! I have to work. But when I’m not typing, I’m keeping it iced and elevated. Takes the pain from a 10 to an 8.
So I may or may not be blogging the rest of the week. I know a lot of people will understand, and thank you! HUGS!

oooh good news! One of my new favorite supervisor’s, just took my on call hours this weekend, so I can recuperate, and I’m taking her’s at the end of the month. She’s my new favorite, cause she’s doing this for me on such short notice!! Squee!!! If anything, Friday after work, I might be driving down to the Indy VA ER to see what they can do.

Anywho, if anything, I’ll be posting the calendar days for the rest of the week! Ya’ll have a safe, happy and healthy week!!

Argh! Doctor appt

Oi! I thought when one sees the doctor, you get to ask questions, and explain your issue. Silly me.

This doctor was telling me ALL my issues stem around ONE issue.

Well alrighty then. Damn! I should’ve seen him years ago!

And he was the doctor, and there are no others to him. Ummm, this dude is a neurologist. And he was a rude, obstinate, smart ass ( not in a good way ). Seriously, we didn't cover squat that I went there to see him. Oh! And he wanted to cancel ALL my other meds, to give me the ONE that will cure me. Yes, he wanted to cancel my blood pressure meds! Um hello! really? Cure me, with only one med, after one visit, and you didn’t cover all my medical issues. Oh my freaking Goddess!

So yeah, this might have been a huge waste of time. I’m so calling my PCP tomorrow. PCP= primary care provider.

I hope y’all had a good day!
