Escape from The Birdcage, March 21, 2016

Stopped by Bings for breakfast and swung by Town Hall to make an appointment with the mayor regarding my ongoing liaison duties, and then went wandering a bit. Then I visited Blings ‘N Things.  I am trying to invade my own life, which is …interesting….  and it involves first of all deciding where to move. […]

The Pharmacodynamics of Mefloquine

The psychological effects of Mefloquine are a nightmare, literally; every soldier I have spoken to talks about the Meflomares and how they knew it was fucking them up but not how exactly or who to tell about it. Mefloquine acts as a chemotherapeutic prophylactic agent against malaria, and stops the body from transporting adenosine diphosphate […]

Alberta Mental Health Services App 

I read recently about the idea of releasing a mental health app which texts you affirmation messages throughout the day. At one point I might have laughed at this idea but as Napolean said, you can’t lead a horse into battle if you think you look silly; its documented that the use of mental health […]

One of the primary difficulties I encounter while advocating for trafficking victims and […]

On Slenderman and Thrill Testing

I read an article recently via Hunter Stinson, who also hunts pedophiles and I imagine has dreams similar to mine; I know he has mental health issues as much as I do — go figure.  If you’ve never had the pleasure of writing about pedophilia with your buddy over breakfast, you haven’t really lived.  That’s […]

Setting Boundaries 

Boundary setting is an important part of self care and is often overlooked in our digital environment.As an empathic healer and consultant I am often asked to provide my services and time at no charge, day or night, with little regard for personal and professional boundaries. This must stop. I am under advisement to ask […]
