Here’s a fresh new open thread for you all. The Congress has passed a clean Continuing Resolution, so the government won’t shut down until December 11, when they’re going to have another fight over raising the national debt limit.

Retired Army/National Guard Infantry NCO. I am an IT Specialist for the US Department of Agriculture. Nothing I say in any forum should be attributed to the the Army, the National Guard, the DoD, or the DoA.
I ski and hike and camp a lot.
Oh, and I go to Comic Cons in Salt Lake City and in San Diego whenever I can.

I get through each day like that. I have a huge raft of appointments coming up–Psychiatric individual therapy, General Practice, Marriage Counseling, Anger Management, PTSD group therapy and so on. In the short term, I’m prioritizing my energy. The lawn at my house needs mowing, but it keeps raining so no use in getting wrapped […]
I have been dealing with overwhelming feelings of anger and sadness for some time now, and it’s gotten progressively worse. I won’t go into the details of how I got here because that would entail me violating some people’s privacy, but I do believe that overwork, my PTSD, and the May 20, 2013 tornado were […]
I know that I haven’t been as active as I or some of the readership has wished in the last several months. I’ve been pretty active on Twitter, which seems to fit my flights of fancy better than long-form. Well in the last couple of weeks, I’ve been so angry and sad that I’ve been […]
