Ignorance.

So I had a Neurologist appointment today, and this is the guy who is supposed to be an "expert" in all of this sort of stuff, meaning fibro and all.

First off, I waited for 40 minutes because he was behind. (As per usual.) He finally comes in and asked me how I was doing and blah blah blah. He then told me to keep moving and keep pushing myself because my body will get used to it and build tolerance. And that was pretty much it. Literally a 5 minute appointment.

Now, the whole pushing yourself so that your body builds tolerance thing makes sense for the normal person. But let me say, if you know anything about fibro, you are NOT supposed to overdo it, because you can make yourself sicker. Or even worse, hurt yourself. What does this guy think? Does he really know NOTHING about fibro? Is he really that ignorant?

I guess its time to do some doctor searching again. *sigh*

Disappointed.

Last night, I sat and watched/read the poll results as they came in. I saw in disbelief people in this state reject gay marriage. I watched the numbers creep in, and became more and more sick as they did.

I am disappointed in my state, the people in it. How can you be so cold? Does equality mean nothing to you? Do you really not think that everyone should be treated equal? Shouldn't mariage be more about love then what genders the couples are? And why should you even have a say as to whether someone can get married or not? What gives you that right anyways? How can you take away a right that everyone should be able to have? Do you not care how many hearts you are breaking? You know, when it comes right down to it, I think that's part of the problem. I really think you don't care. You're selfish. As long as it doesn't effect you, you just really don't care.

I've never been so ashamed to be from Maine. But rest assured, I DID #VoteNoOn1.
