I’ve been consistently meeting my therapy goals and doing a lot better at managing stress and finding balance and I’m focusing on me more. My life is not perfect, but it’s come to the point where my therapist and I just said our goodbyes. He’s been a great help over the past year or so, helping me get to the point where I feel like I’ve made the changes in my life...
Texts With the Boyfriend
Context: Today I was eating at a restaurant and I heard the table behind me talking about their upcoming road trip to the Creation Museum in Ohio… Side note: Tom said he’d break up with me if I labeled these text message posts with “She” and “Him” again. Her said: TINY PLASTIC FETUS HAS TO GO TO THE CREATION MUSEUM. Him said: Only if you let Tiny Plastic Fetus...

It’s enough to make you sick. No sooner had the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on the Affordable Care Act than scam artists began working the phones. They say they’re from the government and that, using the Affordable Care Act as a hook, they need to verify some information. They might have the routing number from your bank, and then use that information to get you to reveal the entire...
Those same two kids are in all my dreams involving the world ending. I have no idea who they are. It’s fucking creepy. It wasn’t raining fire this time, though. So there’s that.
I could easily spend the next 12 hours watching my dog try to pick up this piece of ice.

SQUIRREL!! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel! Squirrel!...– My dog.
“Turn right at the penguins, follow the path past the flamingos pond, and turn right at Monkey Island…” Directions sent to my sister on how to get to her meeting place at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Anyway, she starts her internship today. Exciting! I’m driving her to the zoo just as soon as I hit “Create post”. :)

“…Founding Father’s religion, which is Christianity…”; “…open the door to fund radical Islam schools…” I’m not surprised she said it. Just disappointed and a little nauseous that people continue to practice willful ignorance. You want to follow a particular religion and believe things on faith, fine. I respect that. I do not respect...

She: This isn't working.
Him: I hope you're referring to the A/C.

Update on last week's Medicare fiasco. My member...
1. Under Wisconsin law, someone with a developmental disability cannot be admitted to a nursing home without a need for skilled nursing care, which he has so 2. He needs a pre-admission screening to prove he needs the nursing home level of care but 3. Since he won’t need to be at a nursing home for 30 days or longer and he would be discharged to the nursing home from the hospital...
It's not even 9am yet...
After several back and forth phone calls on Friday with the Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center’s Social Worker and Nurse regarding discharge plans, I was kind of expecting at least a voice mail letting me know when my client was discharged. Especially since we hadn’t actually established which services he’d be needing in the community. The only voice mail I have today was left by a provider...
