Well, at least it wasn't Phoenix....

St. Louis is most dangerous city in the U.S.

Having flown there several times to visit John, and driven by on my way back from Kentucky, I have to agree that St. Louis is ghetto with a capital G.

It is SO cold!

Ok, so technically here in Arizona it isn't. But after injecting myself with flu-inducing MS medication yesterday, it sure does feel like the North Pole this morning.

"Oh don't be silly!" says Brian. Gee, thanks for the support honey!

But like the uber-fabu Michael Guy says, "I digress."

Impending death Minor flu symptoms aside, it's overall a beautiful day. Here I sit in my jammies, consisting of cheap $2-5 Wal-Mart tank top and matching lounge shorts (shhhhhh! Don't tell the other queers or I will get slapped for not wearing Dolce & Gabbana silk robe with matching slippers), drinking my fresh brewed Starbucks coffee while listening to fabu disco music and writing my latest boring post. Brian has taken our little Daisy May to the groomers as the poor soul can't see with all the hair in her eyes.

As soon as my flu goes away, which thankfully only lasts about a day, I will begin my June Cleaver duties of cleaning house. It's a pig sty in here! Brian may be unemployed and you'd think he would keep busy by cleaning house, but alas, it was just wishful thinking on my part.

Much Going On

  • I started on my MS medications on Friday. Copaxone which is my daily injection, and Avonex, my weekly injection. I am able to give myself both injections without passing out or be a chicken shit. I'm very surprised and proud of myself. The side effects of both are the downers. Copaxone makes my muscle near the injection site spasm and cramp up. Avonex has flu-like symptoms for about a day.
  • Brian is going to fight his job loss on Wednesday. A grievance hearing has been set to discuss the circumstances around his termination. He did nothing, but they put the blame on him. I will go in more detail as soon as the dust clears as the internet isn't as anonymous as people think it is.
  • I came home from work today to not only find Brian drunker than the man that lives behind Safeway, but also surfing and chatting on WTF? I ripped him a new one. He managed to lose my trust in him in a second flat! And he still had the audacity to say "he doesn't know how he ended up on and have a profile." We had a talk about this after I cooled down, but it wasn't productive as he tends to keep emotions and thoughts bottled up. I have a feeling this relationship won't last. And I have yet begun to talk about his drinking. He has a drinking problem. Beer is his nectar. He can go a week without drinking, and may drink occasionally. But there are times where he can drink 12 - 15 beers at one time. aside, I don't think I can handle THIS!
  • I will be moving from one department at work to another. This is a good thing believe me! The current department I am in is a disaster. Nobody knows what the fuck they are doing because they are all incompetent. I spend more time cleaning up messes than doing my own job. Over the three years since I've worked there, my boss and I have become good friends. It's hard to tell her how I feel about her department without hurting her or our friendship. So like a thief in the night, I am going to quietly leave that department.
  • Back to Brian....I have to give him props for being proactive in his job search and grievance process against his former employer. At this point he doesn't care if he ends up getting his job back. The grievance and the battle is just for the principle of it. To clear his name that he did nothing wrong. He has thought about going into the transportation business and be a truck driver. I haven't decide how I feel about it. With everything going on with us, his job loss, drinking problem,, etc., all I can do is take it a day at a time. As God as my witness though, if this relationship ends I shall never date again! Too much hassle.

So that is what's been going on in my mind as of late. Most of which I believe time will fix on its own. I hope time hurries up as I feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders.

Michael Guy is alive and well! :o)

Michael Guy has been posting on his blog all along! So ignore my message in the previous post wondering where he has been. It looks like it was my fault, or should I say my brower's fault for not updating his blog every time I went to it; I kept getting the same September 27th entry every time I visited so I began getting worried. But all is well! :) :) :)

Job Loss

This week has been a rather stressful week for Brian and I. Brian got the pink slip on Tuesday, after working 10 years for his company. It's a long story and maybe I shouldn't say too much as you know the internet isn't as anonymous as people think it is, but let's just say this company decided to flex its muscles and nitpick on the littlest thing to get Brian fired. Brian is going to fight it tooth and nail. But at the same time he's down, I'm down, and we got bills to pay. So in the meantime I need to dust off my leopard print mini-skirt, 4 inch heels and tube top and hit Van Buren St . in downtown Phoenix for some paying Johns.

In other news, I went to the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale this past Monday to get poked and proded (not in a good way) like a lab rat for a multiple-sclerosis study that I decided to be a part in. As you may or may not know, I was diagnosed with MS earlier this year when out of the blue I got double-vision for a whole month. Nobody knew what it was until good sweet Dr. Carter at the Mayo Clinic took me under his wings and found out that it was caused by MS. After going back for a followup in August, he confirmed his findings and asked me if I wanted to be a part of a study he's in. Free of charge. My ears perked up! Any time I can save from paying a co-pay and prescriptions I'm there dude! Besides he said that in this study I will for sure be getting a proven medication for treating MS. The purpose of the study is to see if two of the MS drugs out there used at the same time will help MS patients more than treating the disease one drug at a time. So I went for my first screening this Monday where I got to partake in such awesome thrill rides as the EKG machine, the MRI machine, and the Needle Poker (not once, not twice, but THREE times). Oh the fun! Betcha y'all are jealous!!!! I go back in about a month to get my medications, which by the way, are ALL administered via injections. OOOOH, I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Last but not least, WTF happened to Michael Guy????? He hasn't updated his blog in about 2 weeks. Totally not like him. Totally like ME, but not him. Calling Mr. Guy, come in Mr. Guy.
