Yeah, I've learned to be a little more careful about that. That's actually why I started doing the cheaper pizzas. Cause it'll be like 300 calories with 3 servings for 900 total calories, but the other pizzas I used to get were like 350 calories, but 8 total servings for 2800 calories. I was like "Dang! Can't believe how many that one pizza has!" And of course I would still eat it all in one sitting.

I remember reading once about many areas being taken over by the Dollar Stores. They can have lots of food, but it's all low quality. But like in certain poor areas people can't really afford anything better and the real grocery stores don't want to go there because of the competition and the poor people means they would be spending a lot of money with little gain. So only the dollar stores remain, meaning they don't have access to healthy options. Is sad, really.

I remember when I learned that juice is bad for you. WAY too many calories and WAY too much sugar. I was wtf, it's juice! Crazy how some things are.
Juice is fruit but without the fiber. Or the effort (read calories) it takes to clean. It’s still better for you than sodas, though.

That said, I rarely bring it home from the grocery. It’s more of a treat while dining out.

I've all but stopped having soda. I get a 20 oz for gaming and that is all. Game only only once or twice a month. I drink 3 Liters of water a day now to keep myself good. Still fighting the carbs but instead of pizza, subs and burgers my carbs are now english muffins with butter or turkey.

Have not had a burger since Labor day, no pizza since August and last sub was August.

I encountered a possible adventurer ( murder hobo). He had his backpack, waterskin (Camelback), quarterstaff ( walking stick), machete (said he made it out of titanium) explorer outfit (purple dress shirt and black bowtie), 10 foot pole (more like 3 foot), claw weapon(garden cultivator)

I used this floor cleaner called Fabuloso. It's smell is very potent. I had these older dried out swiffer pads that I put the cleaner on. I think I should have deluded it.

Yeah. Speaking from experience, you almost never want to use stuff like that at full strength unless you have a bunch of blood (or similar) to clean up.

I knew you were a lawyer, but I didn’t expect that kind of experience...
He does live in Texas. Guns are issued to new borns at the hospital and at the border for people moving in. How to clean up blood follows learning how to shoot, walk, talk (in that order) come before learning to read.

I am learning the difference between alone and lonely. I live alone and mostly work alone. I am not alone. I rely heavily on my mom and my aunt. I have the Hive. One day my mom and aunt won't be here. One day the Hive will go dormant. I will be truly alone then. I feel lonely a lot. I know that feeling will only get stronger. It's been growing over the last 10 years. I dread the mess I will be in another 10 years.

I sometimes skip my medications. If I go without my antidepressants long enough I start feeling like I am right now. I have typed out a variant of this twice now. I know it is up to me to keep up with my meds and it is my choices that put me in this situation. It is my choice to change it or not to. I know I am weak and will probably keep making the wrong choices.

Funny story; I was standing around chatting with the employees at a gas station tonight. (I fancy one of the girls. I spend as much time talking to her as I can.) A man walks in. I can see him only from the shoulders up. I can tell he isn't wearing a shirt. As I watch him approach the counter I'm saying in my head "please be wearing pants" over and over. He comes from behind the shelves and I can see he is in fact wearing pants. I was relieved.

Being alone and being lonely are definitely 2 different things.

A nickname I have for myself is The Brown Recluse. While I live with my folks, it’s a big house, so I don’t see them for most of the day- usually mealtimes (I’m the main cook, these days).

And my RW friends are mostly not keeping in touch with me anymore.

But I’m OK with that.

I used to get a little lonely in college, but I realized that was because I wasn’t getting girls like some of my buddies. Once I sorted that out into its own distinct issue, I became better adjusted to my isolationist tendencies. By the time I got to law school, going a couple of weeks without a meaningful face-to-face conversation was just fine.

I get that my feelings of loneliness come from my lack of a girlfriend/wife. It hasn't gotten better as I got older. It seems to be getting worse. I went through a period where I was able to accept it easier than other times. Maybe I'd be better off if I hadn't had a brief relationship last year. Maybe it's because that relationship ended only because of how it could have impacted her job. It's like a drug, after the first taste you want more.

You are not alone.

Growing upas the son of the law in a small town I knew a lot of bad stuff. I knew a classmate was being sexually molested when I was 6. I was not to tell anyone (and I didn't) about it (I didn't even know what molested meant). It shaped me into a cynical and untrusted person whom was often a target of bullies looking to impress their fathers whom my father arrested or investigated.

Tried my best to be normal and in many respects I did so. But I never had true friends. The closest was gaming friends but many of them in Vermont did illegal things which placed a barrier of sorts up.

Now I need Lithium twice a day to suppress negative thoughts and impulses.

And worse - now I am in a wheel chair and the doctors still don't know what is wrong with me.

Every day I think about 'lonely and alone'.

I keep going if only out of spite.

My neighbor has a Trump flag and a Glock flag on his house. I wonder if when he says the pledge of allegiance he says "one nation under Glock"

I told this one to my aunt. She said that's a bad joke. I disagreed. I thought it was my best since the MAGA weasel. She didn't like that one either. lol
