    Please understand that I not only care... I also have very real health problems of my own. Of course, that's no comfort or reassurance to you or to anyone else who reads this.

    I just wrote and then deleted a longer and more argumentative comment. I decided I can be more helpful to humanity if I do not allow myself to become any more embroiled in conflict.

    View counts go up and down. When I get one hundred, I'm tempted to delete the entire post, but someone may have chosen to relevant it or commented and I have to respect them. And leave it up even though I'm embarrassed. Sometimes you just have to say fuck it. It's YOUR experience. YOU are writing about it. This is writing for social media. It's something to enjoy, pass the time, share what matters to you. And if you connect with people that's a bonus. It happens from time to time.

    That's the same for me when I write about Vegas, the life I lived there. There were thousands of people who were negotiating the very same circumstances that I was navigating. Nothing unusual about it. The only difference? I give voice to my memories. And there are people still living that life and have been living that life 20 years after I walked away from it.
    So -- yes, I understand you, you want to give voice to a larger picture and that's worthy. But since you are the narrator naturally the focus will fall on you. The way it falls on me.

    "Are," not "ate." Darn typos!

    My "hyperbole" comment was directed to Nicole, not to Gerald. My assertion that the author was exaggerating was well documented with a direct quote from the article, and a live link to a local resource that has enough detail to demonstrate the insccuracy and hyperbole in Nicole's representation of events.

    What most people who live in coastal areas do not want to admit is that they live in areas which have become dangerous, and it is no longer prudent to remain in those areas. People become attached to places, and they want to stay there, so they get angry when tax-supported programs are not sufficient to enable them to stay.

    6 Fall Plants To Get Planted Now

    The weather is getting colder, but that doesn’t mean your gardening plans are thwarted. There are distinct benefits to planting some things in the autumn months: the temperature is cooler, the soil is still quite warm, there is more moisture in the soil and there are more good weather days for planting (as compared to the spring when sudden thunderstorms threaten your gardening days and wet the soil too much). In addition, you can cash in on discounts at your local gardening center as they try to move the last of their merchandise before winter. The ideal time to plant in the fall ends about 6 weeks before the first frost, usually in mid-to-late October.

    The following are the ideal plants to get into the ground during the fall months: Spring Bulbs

    Reschedule Marijuana to a Schedule II Substance Urges Medical Society

    Clinical evidence supports the use of marijuana for intractable chronic pain. However, there is a lack of evidence regarding the long-term effects of marijuana use, and overlapping state and federal laws create huge obstacles for physicians who may want to prescribe it. This puts pain physicians in a challenging position.
    It also makes them key players in this ongoing debate.

    “Many patients could potentially benefit from its use,” said The American Society of Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ASRA) Board member Samer Narouze, MD, PhD. “Neuropathic pain is probably the indication with the most convincing clinical evidence,” he said. Other indications with promising results include anxiety, depression, seizures, cancer pain, and HIV-related pain.

    Thank you, Pascal. The story " touched " me ...reminds me a story of my father. He is very strong personality, I always had to fight for my personal freedom and freedom to my decisions. I left my home when I was 18 and took my own decision where and what I want to do with my life. He cut contact. Only 10 years ago, we met first time after many years of silence. We started to talk and suddenly I understood that my father is going through life with a big trauma and the control was his way to feel safe. When he was 3 years old, his parents were murderd brutally by Ukrainian nationalists. He was a witness of a such brutality, his Mather in the last moment hidden him under the bed ...and he saw how his sister and parents were murdered. He told me this story 10 years ago, only 10 years... We lost so many years. Today, I understand him and I run from the end of the world just to spend with him few days. ... As I would like to return the all liost years, weeks, days...

    #51 The thing with smoking addiction is that it does not harm your life. The crazy thing you might do is heading to a gas station at a weird time of night. I did not know that your mom was a smoker. I am happy for your husband that he neither became the same nor the extreme opposite as his father.

    I overdo whatever I do so that I stayed away from strong stuff. Once a girl said to me at a love parade, that´s a huge, huge festival of love, party and .. drugs (and she did not MEAN it as the compliment I took it for): "You would throw a pill and sit there and try to control your mind". Yeah, I would.

    #50 Good analogy @Aurorasa Sima. I used to be a smoker. I quit 4 years ago. I keep a vaping pen on hand in case I'm in a situation that may spark my desire to smoke again. I never want to go back to it. When my mom was told she had a large mass in her lung before her diagnosis, the first thing she said - "I guess you're going to tell me I have to stop smoking now?!" Her doctor was cool, he said "I would never tell a smoker they have to stop, it's like a crack addiction and you need to remember you began smoking long before the data came out." He went on to say, "if you decide to quit and need help, just call me." She quit the next day and never called for help. She did have me buy her a vape pen! @Pascal Derrien, never forgotten- many lessons we learn from those who were so ill. My husbands parents divorced when he was 11 and his mom had a break down when he was 15, my husband lived with his sister and brother for a year, then moved in with an older sister who had drug addiction problems. He finally got his own place when he was 17. He told me before we married, marriage is for life and I have to say, he was and still is an such an awesome father who's been loving and a great influence on both of our children. He broke that pattern!

    @Pascal Derrien, my husband's dad was an alcoholic and very abusive. As a matter of fact, so abusive he was only allowed to visit when another adult was present. My husband despised his father for years. I'd love to write a buzz about it but he might get upset with me. Anyhow, his dad died in 2009 and my husband just told me a few weeks ago that he made peace in his heart with is father and he understands now that his dad was a very ill man. He also said, he felt his dad made peace with himself before he passed and that makes my husband feel better. I think it's tougher when there is such a history- the emotions can be all over the place. It sounds like you made peace :))

    Very interesting trivia. That was my attempt at an oxymoron. Seriously, an interesting article. I don't know if it was on purpose or by accident, but you stumbled into something very deep with this sentence: "It momentarily suspends belief and suddenly illuminates a new truth." Initially I thought to 'correct' that by suggesting the cliched 'suspension of disbelief' (as in an audience reading a book or watching a movie or a live performance of a story), then I realized that "suspension of belief" (not disbelief) is not only more profound, it may be the key to science, art, and world peace. Very cool.

    One question...what parts of this were sourced from "Dr M Grothe. Oxymoronica. Harper Collins. Glasgow. 2008"? Thanks for mentioning that source, by the way.

    "Free Yourself" --- that is the challenge to many people ---It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.
    As John Locke who was admired by Voltaire said : "I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts."

    Nice piece, Cory. I just finished answering a comment on a similar theme. I wondered how many people who say "Follow your bliss" are actually following their own. I especially wonder about people writing books about "following your own bliss." I believe you should, by the way, but I've never considered it blissful. I'm continually asked how much I've made from my novel. I usually answer: "I'm just surprised I could write one." My conscience changed dramatically after I wrote "Horse." It wasn't bugging me to write, rather to write better. Still a pain in the ass at times, but we learn that being "pushed" helps.

    The key paragraph for me was

    "They are heroes because they have refused to be silent. Through right action they have made it difficult for acid to be sold on the streets, they have successfully lobbied for tougher laws, and got laws enacted where none existed. They have put their attackers behind bars"

    Like Rosenberg I see a hero here who refuses to be a victim and is getting laws changed, and is making sure that people who do this are duly held to account and the guilty sent to jail. The WSJ report details a news story about SIngapore and here the focus is psychological violence http://blogs.wsj.com/indonesiarealtime/2013/05/28/study-most-singaporeans-wouldnt-help-domestic-violence-victims/ - this story has the same foundation - a photo with victim crossed out and and replaced by victor. We do not need to live heroic lives, the heroes who become victors are heroes because this involves change that is both compassionate but also courageous.

    All of that shows me that this is not just a shelter for victims, this is a movement towards change.

    #4 I had to leave my home country after 8 years of violence and abuse by a sick "man". My biggest struggle was not spoiling my soul by wishing it dead. There were times I woke up with the thought it should die, I thought it throughout the day and it was my last thought before I went to sleep. Even as a victim I would never condone death penalties. I´d put them all away, far away from society, where they cannot harm anyone. The real problem is the society, though. It´s like killing the flies swarming a rotten apple without removing the apple.
