they've been wanting me to start physical therapy

The obstacles are no different than they were when I started the blog 10 years ago and no different than they were when I entered abject poverty 23 years ago.

number one the car is not safe to drive

number two I cannot afford to repair it.

  number 3 I cannot get around, walk and balance on 6 to 8 inches of ice that will not melt until the end of May beginning of June.

Number 4 Dont have means to move to California for example.

Number 5

Even if I sold the car I would be forced to use taxi cabs which would burn through any money I would get from selling the car extremely rapidly.

The chances of my qualifying for a car repair loan are slim since my credit is poor, and I have a very slim chance of being able to hold down a part-time job since I'm wracked with bodywide excruciating pain and devastating weakness.

I continue to have no choices in life.

How would you want to be treated?

When people with an opposite political point of view or religious point of view begin preaching or speaking about it, I do everything I possibly can to show respect.

When I was at the food center the other day a woman began preaching, speaking a very right-wing point of view in regards to Christianity I responded:

" I respect you as a human being and I respect your point of view but I don't quite see it that way and I'm not comfortable sharing my own views on the subject"

As an atheist I would like to ask you (especially Christians) to give me and any other atheists that you might meet the same due respect.

Isn't that what Jesus would do?

My bday buddy

The first ten years of my life My adoptive parents celebrated my birthday one day too late until I found the birth certificate showing them that I was actually born on June 24th 1963

Either way George Michael and I across the pond from one another were celebrating our birthdays roughly the same day every year for 53 years

George dob was 6/25/63

Mine was 6/24/63

Malnutrition?

Last night for dinner, ramen noodles with a small mystery pastry the landlord gave me for x mas.

Breakfast/lunch today is 8 bites of cream cheese (no money for bread) and a 4 oz. Container of Apple sauce I got for free from a church.

Tonight with my 1/2 gallon of gas, im forced to go to mission for dinner, where normally all I can stand to eat is the fruit.

Grandma Moses

It still looks like there is a very strong chance that Grandma Moses was one of my ancestors. She is in the king family, I am a king descendants, her migration patterns throughout the United States immediately pattern my own 6 time great grandfather John King.

We're both descendants of the Mayflower but not until I send my ancestry DNA test will I come closer to finding the answer

Calvin and Hobbes

Only a few days ago I was telling my acquaintance about Calvin and Hobbes and this particular sticker of course just a few days later I'm parked behind the sticker and assume that the person whose placed the sticker on their car has cancer as their horoscope sign like I do.

It took me awhile to realize after seeing the breast cancer ribbon on the back of the van that Calvin is pissing on cancer!

Out of respect to his wishes, I held back a few steps; I created some distance because I knew that I would not be welcome to greet him/sadly, I felt the need to make sure he didnt see me, since he doesn't want contact.

Laura's Album

I found this absolutely amazing book in the bookstore last week just kind of jumped off the shelf at me only one week after I was looking at a Laura Ingalls Wilder video on YouTube.

This is a compilation of Photographs & Memories and all the memorabilia of her whole life, it is absolutely incredible beauty an amazing back at the past

Commonalities with celebrities

I'm not an opera singer but I learned that my crew is an opera singer and he in my opinion has the most amazing voice to listen to

He's one year older than me and attended Catonsville community college and Towson university at the same time that I was there.

You might also be surprised to find what you have in common  with some celebrities

. For example Amy Schumer attended Towson University as well. She also like me has one Jewish parent and one non Jewish parent.

Freaky adoptee memories

Here is just one memory that I think of rather often. At some point in 2006 or 2007 I saw the balloons with the directions to my uncle's house (in Baltimore) so that people can "sit Shiva" in his memory. ( an open house that allows people to come and go everyday for about a week and it's basically a party celebrating the life of the deceased in the Jewish religion)

Can you imagine what it would be like to see the invitation to a p"party" of your immediately immediate family member and you can't go (because u aren't welcome) you never even met the the uncle who died? I never met any of the family on my father's side.

My father (who I only met thrice) he thinks he can forbid me from introducing myself to my family

There aren't many people that you could discuss that kind of memory with because there aren't many people that could relate to something that freaky

But the main reason why I don't believe her is because he wondered would have planted Abraham's body in her backyard?!

99 percent bedridden

The issues with the back has worsened substantially in the last 10 years and I'd say for the last 10 215 years I can't stand for more than 15 minutes I can't walk very far either due to largely to excruciating back pain. I am so weak I can barely put a fork to my mouth. The migraines are almost daily and the stomach issues have been also very very severe for more than 10 years.

I think it's fair to say that I gave up years ago and do not want to spend my life running from Doctor to doctor or specialist to specialist. I'll never ever have a normal life on $8,000 a year and I don't see myself being able to hold down a job

Feel badly for Josh Earnest

The people in The Briefing room keep asking Josh Earnest the same questions over and over and over again, questions that he keeps giving the same answer to. Nobody is really listening to what Earnest is saying; "The priority at this time is the peaceful transition of power!"

No doubt whatsoever!

Additionally, I have no doubt that, as always, Michelle handled herself with tremendous grace and aplomb, in her meeting with Melania, and served as an extraordinary role model to her.

Obama meets trump

As always, Obama handled himself with grace and aplomb, and I have no doubt , this is day 1 of Obama serving as an excellent role model for, "The Donald!"

Trump protests across America

What can actually be achieved with the protests?

At this point, for as scared as I feel about a Trump presidency:

I can say 2 things;

Regardless of who has been president, my q.o.l. has steadily declined since 94

And

A trump presidency doesn't appear will directly hurt me in the first few months, in that I am too old for a reversal of roe v. Wade to affect me

And

A wall along the border wont directly affect me

Nor

Will the repeal of Obamacare.

I can only hope that Trump will have peaceful, highly intelligent role models, every step of the way

All in all, the Native Americans, tend to travel in large friendship and/or family groups.

But there's a subset who are always alone, asking me for money and or passed out on sidewalks, Starbucks, etc.

This particular man, once they got him off the mens room floor, I guess he refused e.r. because he walked to Starbucks and fell asleep there.

Im confused on why there are so many who travel alone, always drunk/because its a given they have a large family who love them, him, her.

Likely, the Starbucks store mgr. Will also throw this particular man out.

"We had nice Jewish sex!" Seth Rogen

Poverty is serious ongoing crisis

For 70% of the year as an example 2/3 of each month I am in fight or flight mode trying to figure out how to live on $3 a day for everything. The biggest thing that puts you in fight or flight mode is Crisis food crisis

All of my burners as well as my oven have very very bad and everything is turned on no it's not gas but it's electric.

I tried calling the maintenance man in here I actually have a long list of things that need to be repaired, he was stupid enough to bust my water heater even though I told him that there was a risk that could happen and to be very very careful he flooded nearly all of my apartment so I simply do not trust him and hear it

So the combination of situation with the stove as well as the oven  is a serious ongoing crisis it makes it very very difficult to function at all/im always mentally in fight or flight as I try to problem solve

If I sell the car I could finally go down and spend some time in Sedona as well as have a few weeks with extra food so obviously that's not a long-term solution even if I did use mountain lift due to the bad ice here  you have to pay out of pocket and it's pretty expensive!

UC events you want to participate in true meet up but you don't have financial means to do any of them

I'd like to go back and visit The free thinkers at their meeting place people bring their dogs but I do not patronize business that allow non service dogs into their establishment so that's really not an option....

The car is drivable but I don't want to run it into the ground even though the repair would be affordable to most people it's not affordable to me. As you know trying to run more than one errand in a day on this is absolutely exhausting and requires a great deal of walking.

Been watching a lot of Soul Train Dance videos a lot of concerts a lot of www.axstv.com which is everything to do with music and concerts!

When my head is completely surrounded with music then I typically feel over the moon happy/but its a distraction nit a solution.

The overwhelming majority of the time I don't like unsolicited advice from anybody but especially not rich people because they have no clue and no business giving advice when they never had to live through any of this. But if you're not a millionaire and you want to give me advice especially if you've gone through poverty and you want to give me advice and I'm open-minded.

I could set up a go fund me account but the bottom line is just sick to death of living like this

Lynyrd skynyrd tribute concert

Watching lynyrd skynyrd one more for the road on axstv

The person I want 2b

Despite the thousands and thousands of experiences that I personally had with black on white racism now that I've left Baltimore approach every interaction every meeting with an African American in Arizona as if I'm living a brand-new life (without those tragic experiences in my background.) As far as I'm concerned every single human being deserves a fresh chance so I do everything in my power to put those memories out of my mind when I'm making new African American acquaintances or friends....

I survived a tornado

That's the name of the show I'm watching.

I'm pleased to say that's one of the few things I have not had to survive! although I have seen tornadoes I have never been so close as to incur any sort of major injury or loss.

As I watch Weather Channel I'm thinking about how prior to deciding where in the United States to live over the course of the last 22 years I have always strongly considered climate.

predominantly violent . While onecan never wholly guarantee that they won't be the victim of this or that you can certainly gauge  likelihood.

  from mudslides to floods , tornadoes to earthquakes there are places in the nation where you're not nearly as likely to become a vic. But when thinking about storm sandy, who knew?!

obviously with climate change there are fewer and fewer places to run in the world

Now

It feels like someone is hammering on the back of my hand while someone else is stabbing the back of my hand with knives while concurrently all limbs are burning and stung with bees.

Not to mention the spine pain thats had me mostly bedridden since prepping for the carpet cleaning guy who was a no show on Thursday!

Wings - Band On The Run (Original Video)

Count on someone else if you want it to b done wrong or not done at all

I've been preparing for weeks to get the carpet cleaned.  Its alot of very difficult very painful physical labor, as I have to get everyting i own, off of the carpet and into the kitchen and the bathroom.  Why?  Because even though I have a storage unit, nobody at the complex cleaned it out prior to me moving in and it's very large and impossivble for me to adequately clean.......

So, all that work and the carpet cleaning guy didn't show up!

Two chain smokers moved in downstairs.  Having severe chest pain, mild cough, wheezing.  I'd ask them not to smoke on their porch but, their tough girls very unfriendly, the "don't fuck with me" kinda girls!

So at urgent care they prescribed me 2 inhalers.  Cant' fill for a week, since i have 3 bucks to last 7 days......

The fact that I was able to complete the physical labor without help shocked me, since if i walk for 1/2 hour the back and feet pain is unbearable and i have to get into bed.  I applied for a job in a preschool, because I was so happy about my body surprising me.  In the email I described to the employer alot about me, like i havent had a job in 13 years.......................because as a very disabled woman they need to know the truth.

a man I didn't know gave me a beautiful compliment today that had nothing to do with my appearance.  I was so encouraged by what he said regarding his observation of me, I thought, maybe I will try to work part time.  All I've had to eat today is a bologna sandwich and crackers.  This has been my diet all week, not enough calories since ran out of money and had to put 2 dollars in the gas tank today.

8/24/1996 essentially homeless

Renting very small office in somones house. Can't bring anything I own with me.

I had lived for 2 weeks as f/t liv in nanny. They knew in advance Id b in ocean city for a few days with my friend, I decided to return early.

My boss went all through my personal belongings must hav read my journals, discovered I was politically librral. I had no car, and theres no public transit in Shadyside, Md. She fired me instantly upon my return from o.c. (It was in written contract that nobody in their fam. Smokes indoors. They broke contract, I complained, as Im severely allergic.

They bought me a one way ticket to Baltimore city at night and I Had no clue where to go. ID DO A night here a night there.

By about 8/6 Carolone and her hubby Shawn let me rent a small very dirty office. They didnt move anything out for me, I "slept" on the floor of the office.

Here is my journal entry

8/24/1996

"Where do I start, what approach should I take? It's not too late.

Baltimore is driving me to drink!

I finally slept normally last night I was the only one home.

I was I  living room (after dark) when a rock, which I thought was a bullet, came through the window.

I screamed and instinctively dropped flat to the floor (cuz I live in a u.s. war zone)

I crawled to the landline, not unlike a snake. I called 911.  I just want some peace, waitin on the police. 

They say "We can't do nuttin, aint no crime  been proven. (They made fun of me for thinking it was a bullet)

There were no witnesses they reiterated.

No mo no mo
Just leave me alone!
I aint hurtin noone
Just chillin here at "home!"

Ill b honest to a fault

If I had a choice between a life of homelessness and poverty or getting murdered painlessly I would have rather been shot in the back and killed in February 1994 then to have had to live this kind of life. You know I am honest to a fault

The bulk

Most of the people that I meet have low to extremely low IQs.

But it's an even more common occurrence in people from one if three ethnic groups that I wont name, where the bulk are ether severely developmentally disabled or just dumb as a doorknob.

At the time that they were working on debunking racism stereotypes they determined that size of brain is identical the brains looks identical even though the ethnic groups were different;then why can't I have a conversation with anyone that it is normal. I had a more enjoyable interaction with my 7 year old friend walking home from the bus today can I do with most people. Because Levi is a really quick learner and he loves to learn.

Here in the privacy of my own home I can Google whatever I want to Google and I can type in whatever ethnic group I want to type in  by asking the Google search engine particular questions!    I want to find out whether other Americans are having similar experiences as me, or, am I exaggerating? I learned that ny perceptions are sadly and strikingly real.

I told the bus driver today that I didn't have my ID because it was temporarily missing in my apt. She charged me doubleand added on a lecture: You really need to have it with you all the time!

  I just got through telling you it's MISSING its LOST!

I have to repeat myself over and over and over again with everybody! As you can see there are some things that are going to follow me no matter where in this country I live .

They don't seem to comprehend even the tiniest of questions. A few years back I noticed that on days that I didn't have my watch if I asked couple of people throughout the day what time it was they would invariably give me the wrong time

I was trying to exchange an item for another item in a different department at Safeway.  I had to repeat the same story/phrase six different times !before the Safeway employee comprehended that I don't want to exchange it for the same exact item!

I'm wondering to  myself why does he think I would exchange it for the same exact thing that doesn't make any sense!

I think I told you this story before but I was calling a clinic a local Clinic run by one of the ethnic groups that I mentioned earlier.

I called on the phone and asked if John Smith still works there  the receptionist replied  there's no John Smith here but would you like to speak to Jon Jones ???!

OMFG

This week was good in some ways

I was speaking with my very dear friend Carol in Las Vegas and the conversation gave me a sense of hope that I probably haven't had it about 12 years, time will tell on whether or not I can hang onto this Outlook but it is looking like I just might be able to
