Wellp that was a very personal post so I’m unsure if I should be posting regarding inactivity here or the other thread but as you mentioned you will do two of my suggestions in your post, I will try to think of some more.

If staff wants my help with anything, I’m here. Kind of. I did ask Kate if we could run the codies several months ago but she had private issues in her personal life and took a step back. I do think reinstating the codies would be a fun idea whenever Kate/the staff is open to it.

I think they might want someone with more experience .. unfortunately I have zero experience in this area of law. But I guess I'll find out soon enough. :(

 I am alive because of religion.  Are you calling me garbage?


He said religion is garbage. You are not a religion.

The Sean Spicer ones were hilarious imo.


Never seen them. Once I decide I dislike something I tend to avoid it entirely. I just feel like the humour is so blunt and obvious. I like more witty humour. :(

The Saturday Night Live skits are trash/unfunny. Don't get me wrong, some are decent like the more cowbell classic, but most that I've seen are like a magnified version of Friends. Let's take an obvious or a dad joke and push it into your face like a fucking clown with a pie. Because we think our viewers have the same IQ as a red crayon. Top.


I agree .. I've never really found any of them funny.

#2016084 Ableism

People don't seem to get that celiac disease does make you gluten intolerant and not just a pretentious douche bag. 


Yup, basically. I don't know why people get so automatically aggressive and annoyed when I tell them I can't eat gluten. I see similar responses with people who are vegan.


I don't think it's a matter of people not knowing that celiac disease makes you gluten intolerant, because, well, that's all it does. It's more of a thing that people don't really know celiac disease is a thing :p


We had a patient last month that had pain and lots of cases of diarrhea in the past few years, and my teacher asked for an exam for celiac disease, and it was positive. I couldn't begin to imagine the pain she felt. I'm glad you were finally diagnosed after so much suffering @cara (unfortunately it took you that long though :/)


Yup, it definitely sucked. I'm so happy to hear that she got a diagnosis, though. It's shitty to not actually know what's wrong with you, especially when it's such a simple solution. 

#2016060 Ableism

Posted by cara on 27 September 2017 - 03:04 PM

I'm not entirely sure what ableism is, but I see others ranting about their experience with being mistreated in the healthcare system and society so Imma go ahead and do the same.


It took years for them to diagnose me with celiac disease. I was in the hospital only once, and not because the pain was more than usual, but because I was so frustrated with it that I said 'fuck walk-in family doctors, I'm SURE the hospital can help me'. Well I was sooOooOO wrong. Turns out I had a stomach ulcer, they gave me some medication and sent me packing. I would have pain so badly after I ate that I would have to lie down in the washroom afterwards. On the floor. In public washrooms. I have lied down on so many public washroom floors it's unreal. Years later, a family doctor spoke to me about my re-occurring ulcers and complaints of pain. And shortly afterwards, I was diagnosed. YEARS of physical pain after eating was gone. Years of mis-diagnosed UTI's and unnecessary antibiotics was over.


Now I'm happy, pain free, and just need to deal with everyone I encounter hating me because I can't eat gluten. Because despite countless studies showing that gluten is harmless when you are not allergic, some twat wrote 'Wheat Belly' (widly scrutinized and generally debunked), a bunch of hipsters believe gluten is bad and have kicked it from their diet. So everyone thinks I'm some obnoxious hipster who elects not to eat gluten. Which I have come to terms with, because god bless those hipsters for making being gluten free a popular trend and thus easily available to me in most restaurants.

Thank you.




No it's just disgusting. 


Pineapple on pizza isn't human


I completely agree. But I dislike pineapple in general though.
