Up shit creek without a paddle

Ah, the stupidity these days of trying to get medication. On their website, Lifeworks NW clearly states they prescribe medication. It’s even in their FAQ in case some poor sap is confused by their list of available services.

"Does LifeWorks NW prescribe medication?

Yes. Our medical staff and counselors evaluate medication needs necessary to serve each person.”

So, I’m sure you can well imagine my surprise/irritation yesterday at my psych intake when my therapist said that no, in fact, they DON’T, and that I should go through my primary care provider for that. Whatever, fine. I can do that. Except, I can’t. My primary care provider absolutely, positively, WILL NOT prescribe mental health related medications. So, where the fuck does that leave me? Oh right. FUCKING STILL UNMEDICATED. Somebody please shoot me.

The Chance To Dance Again

by Michael Keller

We highlighted the TED talk of Hugh Herr a couple of weeks ago. But his work is too important and beautiful to leave to just one post.

The MIT associate professor of media arts and sciences is making prosthetic limbs and exoskeletons that restore function in those who have lost legs from injury or disease. This set of gifs focuses on his team’s BiOM powered ankle and foot prosthesis

"Bionics is not only about making people stronger and faster," he said during the talk. "Our expression, our humanity can be embedded into electromechanics."

To prove his point, Herr and fellow researchers studied dance movement to replace the lower leg that professional dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost after last year’s Boston marathon bombing. He concluded his talk by bringing Haslet-Davis on the stage to perform a bionic rumba.

I feel like Buffy Summers and Dean Winchester would be best friends.

  • Dean:

    So you're Chosen too, huh?

  • Buffy:

    Yep. A bunch of old men played God a zillion years ago, and here I am.

  • Dean:

    I know that feel.

  • Buffy:

    Oh well. It could be worse. I kind of enjoy killing things.

  • Dean:

    It's really good stress relief. If only we could just stick with killing monsters, right?

  • Buffy:

    I know. One day it's "kill vampires", the next you're sacrificing yourself for your younger sibling.

  • Dean:

    And then they bring you back from the dead!

  • Buffy:

    You too, huh?

  • Dean:

    Crawled my way out of a grave.

  • Buffy:

    Sucks, doesn't it?

  • Dean:

    And then I got back to find out that the person closest to me was doing sketchy, addicting things to become more powerful, all in the name of the greater good.

  • Buffy:

    Let me guess, he tried to start an apocalypse?

  • Dean:

    Not TRIED to start so much as-- wait, how'd you know?

  • Buffy:

    Been there, done that. Man, next thing you'll tell me someone close to you lost their soul and tried to kill people you loved.

  • Dean:

    Dude. This is eerie. Next thing you'll be telling me you have a red-headed computer-hacking lesbian unofficial sister.

  • Buffy:

    ...um....

  • Dean:

    .....Are you my alternate universe parallel?

  • Buffy:

    No, the only alternate universe I've been in, they told me my life was all fiction. And not even good fiction.

  • Dean:

    ...We should hang out.

  • Buffy:

    Definitely.

  • Dean:

    Decapitate some vampires.

  • Buffy:

    Sounds good.

  • Dean:

    Are you seeing anyone?

  • Buffy:

    No, but I'm not over this guy in a big coat who I hated for a while and was an enemy but then came over to our side because he fell in love with me, and then later he betrayed me and it was awful, but then he really did feel bad about it and tried and make up for it and he died saving the world but then came back only he never calls me.

  • Dean:

    .....

  • Buffy:
