This is my view, from my foxhole.  Everybody has their own war…  Take what you need — leave the rest.  And, most importantly, I reserve the right to change and evolve my opinions over time…  That's what good conversations do — blogs, inherently, are conversations.

    Him the Almighty Power
    Hurld headlong flaming from th' Ethereal Skie
    With hideous ruine and combustion down
    To bottomless perdition, there to dwell
    In Adamantine Chains and penal Fire…
    As one great Furnace flam'd, yet from those flames
    No light, but rather darkness visible
    Serv'd onely to discover sights of woe,
    Regions of sorrow, doleful shades, where peace
    And rest can never dwell, hope never comes…

    I was talking to one of my recently new¬†friends and she'd expressed a discomfort in approaching me during an event.  She wanted to respect my space, but didn't know a comfortable way in which to approach me with respect to my PTSD symptoms within a group setting.  It made me start to think about the intense air that I must emote for her to question when and how to approach me.  I like talking to people — that is, except for the ignorant and/or stupid, as I have a zero-tolerance for ignorance and stupidity — it's where I get some of my greatest inspirations.  However, at times, my condition may not permit me to interact on a desired level and/or in an expected way.

    It was a late Friday night, when I'd finished a long round-up of WordPress themes, and had completely forgotten that my fridge was empty.  I collapsed onto the sofa, launched Snapchat, and suddenly my mouth started watering…  My neighbour had posted a picture of himself — eating a huge, yummy burger.  The ridiculous tradition to take pics of food, and boast of them publicly, appears to have migrated from Instagram to Snapchat.

    I've been noticing myself having — more and more frequently — nosebleeds as of late.  So, I decided to do some research of my own into it.  While I'm going to follow-up with a doctor later in the week at an appointment I'd already had for something else, from what I've found in my search, the amount and/or types of medications that I'm on may be causing my nosebleeds.  Although some of them are minor, some are absolute gushers.

     

    60% of all people that've had at least one nosebleed in teir life and 6% of nosebleed patients seek medical treatment.  Some nosebleeds are caused by medications.  In a study of 281 patients with nosebleeds (i.e. epistaxis) who sought treatment at a Nova Scotia emergency room, from 2005–2006, researchers found that 41% had taken one or more anticoagulant drugs.
