(Master List of Fanfics) Smutty fanfiction writer.
I'm a geek by hobby and profession and once got out of a boring meeting by jamming pencils up my nose and saying 'wibble'. I love cups of tea.
I did kind of burn out after the last lot, which when you consider I’ve taken no breaks from writing in nearly 6 months was hardly surprising! I’ve got a few sewing commissions to do (people LIKE having Tucker’s Law sewn onto things, don’t ask me why) but then I think that should have cleared the detritus out of the old head and returned it to normal functioning capability again.
Damn thing just needs rebooting often. It’s old and knackered ;)
This you’ll probably all find funny (is it a full moon or something this week?). Got a lecture from a family member, yet again, about how I needed to stop INSTANTLY taking my antidepressants because “those things are addictive!”.
Same family member who has NO issues with my morphine, valium, tramadol……
I’ve learned to laugh at people who do this kind of thing to me. I FEEL angry but raging never got me anywhere apart from stressed out.
So I laugh. Even when I don’t feel it.
And once again the same person at work, the same muppet as before:
Muppet - “I wouldn’t want to work with anyone who was mentally ill, god, could you imagine it?”
Me - “You DO work with someone mentally ill you fuckwit – ME”
Muppet - “Yeah but you’re not like, shooting up the office or anything”
Sooo tempted to put thumbtacks on his chair and chewed up gum under his desk….
(I won’t. I’m a professional. But the mental images make me feel better. Although calling him a fuckwit wasn’t professional really…)
Ahh well. I just imagine how Malcolm Tucker would deal with this guy. Or Jamie! Or BOTH! Mwahahahaha
(yeah, the ‘crazy’ part of my url isn’t hyperbole.)
I am thinking of taking out the swearing and sending this to some of my family who consistently belittle me for not going off my antidepressants. They argue that they are ‘addictive’ - which by the way is hypocritical since they have NO problem with the morphine I take for my back injury and that shit is WAY worse - and that after 20 years on the stuff I should be ‘cured’. I’m not. I probably never will be. I liken it to my spinal injury - it’s something chronically wrong with me and it will not go away. All I can do is adapt and try to manage it. One of my personal favourite ways to take my mind off things is to write funny and/or smutty fics!
Please do me a favor. Stop dissing medication. I cannot tell you how many people have said to me. Oh, just eat better, and exercise and use natural methods. Medication is bad. Well FYI medication saved my fucking life and I can tell you that without it I could might as well be dead. So please stop shaming people for using medication. It could be saving their lives.
That is all.
