Each doctor telling you to see another doctor, who tells you, "No, you need a specialist in xyz." Until you've gone full circle, and you are back at square one."

Memories & The Stuff That Keeps Us Up at Night

I remember when my father brought home our families first computer in the mid 1990's. I was maybe 8 or 9 years-old.

This is Me Bitching: Chew, Swallow, Repeat…

Chew, Swallow, Repeat... Doesn't sound hard, does it? I'd just like to feel hungry again or swallow without discomfort, feeling as I once had.
