I went to the grocery store with my mom and Logan tonight after I took my nephew home. Someone went right up to my mom (I was standing behind her) and started asking her questions about my dog. I interrupted to answer, since you know, I'M the one with the answers, and the stupid woman STILL keep addressing my mom. My mom didn't have ANYTHING to do with this dog's training, aside from making it take longer. She doesn't know half of what my dog does. Just because I'm autistic doesn't mean I'm mute or stupid or whatever this woman thought I was. Then when I tried to explain that he can find ANY bathroom by scent, even if he's never been there before, I think her had exploded. Yes, my dog lives with me. Yes, I love my dog. No, he won't bite. NOW GO THE **** AWAY AND LET ME SHOP.

I got a live spider in my eye while giving a final exam to my students today... so I couldn't make any noise.

I managed to hold it together, but it was a huge effort.

My eye is still itchy.

My grandma had an MRI and an MRI with contrast this morning. The neurologist says she had an "acute mini stroke" and also saw a spot that shows she has had a mini stroke in the past.
Tonight she is having some kind of blood oxygen test done to see what her oxygen levels are like while sleeping. She was diagnosed with sleep apnea years ago but refuses to wear her CPAP mask. The neurologist gave her a very stern talking to about how that can cause stroke and heart attacks. A few weeks ago she apparently felt like her chest was tight so tomorrow they are doing a full workup on her heart and chest as well.

She's feeling much better but she is in the hospital tonight, spent last night sitting in the ER. They are pretty sure she can go home tomorrow at least.

I don't like this one bit and I'm terrified of what the chest workup might show and that even if the doctor says YOU NEED TO WEAR THE CPAP IF YOU WANT TO STILL BE HERE she will do it for a few days, then get stubborn as usual and stop using it. We've been telling her for YEARS she needs to wear that mask...

Terrible rotten horrible no-good day. I had a friend who was supposed to come down this weekend but I told her it's probably best not, because my stomach has been acting up and I'm afraid I picked up the gastroenteritis and don't want to share, plus I didn't know what was going to happen with my grandma. So I don't even have a fun weekend to look forward to like I was. =<

I know this may come off as rude, but I am going to be truthful:

Maybe that's why she asked your mom because maybe she found your mom to be more approachable then you, if I had a service dog I would be proud & happy to talk about their training not "get the **** away & let me shop!"

I have met a couple of service dogs (real ones) & ones in training (like to assist those with limited mobility/ or the blind) & those folks were happy to discuss & spread the word on how their dogs have or are going to change the life of someone.

I don't ask to let the dog or anything, I just wanted to know more about service dogs in general, if you played it right, you could be an advocate for people use service dogs for disabilities people can't see & it might help others.

Just saying.

I've been sick for almost 2 weeks now and my cough is only getting worse. I can't go to the doctor because there's apparently a $1000 deductible on my insurance that needs to be met before anything is covered, and I have absolutely no money after going to an (unrelated) doctor appointment earlier this week and learning about my lack of current insurance AFTER the appointment. I just want to stop coughing!

With most insurance, even with a deductible, your doctor's visits are usually covered for the cost of the copay. My insurance has a $1000 deductible, but I still just pay the office copay ($25 in my case). Everything done in office is still covered.

Sending vibes your grandma gets better. We had to have my grand-mum taken today after falling for a 2nd day in a row.

I usually DO answer questions. When they're addressed to ME, not when they're addressed to someone else. If someone wants to ask ME questions 99% of the time I am more than willing to answer. It's when idiots start assuming I'm incapable eof answering that I get pissed off.
