Yesterday I lost my car keys, and had left my phone and wallet in my car.

I spent 5 hours looking for the keys, before getting them return via a nearby cafe.

I had strongly been considering just living there, there was a tree which was dropping some sort of nut type thing that looked like a small pineapple, but looks fibrous like a coconut - possibly banana related. I was going to gather them up to take but wanted to wait until night time, so I didn't have people staring, but then I forgot. I don't think they would have tasted nice.

I had Appendicitis when I was young, so I don't really remember it, besides vomiting lots and being in a lot of pain.

But my recovery in hospital was awesome, a week playing Donkey Kong on Super Nintendo and watching movies.

I had a room by myself, but got moved because I was scared of being alone in the dark.

Looks like a good memory - good in the sense of giving you a warm nostalgia

I hate hospitals and doctors, maybe I have a trauma for the time I spend as a 2 year baby doing a stomach pumping.

I am not feeling too much pain and so far I am waiting the results of the scans

A few years ago I suffered heat exhaustion, borderline heat stroke, thought it might be a cardiac event so opted for an ambulance over an uber. Expensive error. But I learned that cops automatically accompany ambulances around here. It turned out okay, they were just superfluous which is best case scenario. So I guess now I will never call an ambulance for myself and will have to make a snap judgement if it ever comes up that I might have to call one for someone else.

How do you check yourself out to rule out a cardiac event? I've thought of stocking a pulse oximeter and potentially a blood pressure monitor, but I'm not sure what else I should consider.

I really should find out for sure- though in this instance it would not have mattered- I was basically delirious from dehydration and not able to make good decisions. I self diagnosed panic attacks after 3 wasted trips to the ER when I was much younger. So I did know it wasn't that but something physical. Those times they gave me nitro pills (which are very bad for you if you are not having a heart attack), then saline for dehydration. So emts in 3 out of 4 experiences did not know the difference. The heat stroke they didn't do that just started saline in the ambulance. Probably having saline bags and the skill to administer would be a good addition. I mostly resigned myself to prevention and being okay with the consequences of no treatment. If I don't get off cigarettes its probably a when not if scenario. Symptoms vary alot too; not everyone gets the sledgehammer in the chest feeling.

I haven't posted to one of these in a while. And tbh it is not really Friday anymore.


I've been sleeping too much. And too little. Sad in my heart and tired in my brain. Wishing for something else. No complaints. I miss my home. I miss snacking on plantains. I miss my cats. I heard one went muerto while I've been away. I am saddened by her pain.

I don't really know what has got me so blue. And I don't know what keeps bringing me back. I just want to make the most of my existence before it all goes black.

So I guess recently I just witnessed my first dramatic event of Raddle. It was not pleasant.

I found a sexy adult novel called Wifey, written by Judy Blume, iconic YA author who I read a lot as a teen and was deeply moved by as a young brain ... Now I'm all grown up I'm ready for Blume 2.0

Apparently someone downvoted this post. I wonder why.
