politely not mentioning that it is completely nonsensical to say "happy yom kippur"
my therapist is a religious catholic. she's very supportive of me as a religious jew & sometimes asks questions to clarify her understanding of where i'm coming from. but i don't always know if it's safe for me to say i think we've slipped onto a fascist slope as a nation. i don't always know whether it's safe to share all parts of me
also it seems i'm sleeping in the garden. maybe the cars going by will soothe me to sleep
meth is a rampant problem in the mountain west. its pandemic nature makes me feel really proud of individuals i meet who have scars from picking ( they're very distinctive ) & no recent sores. that's so powerful. i'm rooting for them, & also people beginning their recovery, & also those who aren't ready yet

i went to an urgent care today bc i was in so much pain & they confirmed i probably have a kidney infection, possibly even a stone. i got a shot of antibiotics in my butt cheek & pick up the oral script in the morning. so. my self-diagnosis was right & my doctor ought to listen to me
i bumped my immunized shoulder coming up the stairs & complained "ow, my pneumonia" -- my jewmate prodded me in the chest & declared "PUT SOME ICE ON IT." i said, "no, it's fine," he said, "PUT SOME ICE ON IT." i said, "are you being dominant ? because that's arousing for me." he left me alone
@MoMartin to your point. i went shopping for new pants today & fully 2 separate individuals asked me if i was A) jewish & B) part of chabad ( here, rabbi mendel's flock ). neither of them seemed to be aware of the reform / conservative synagogue at all.
personal, not bragging, but yes excited
yesterday i got to see my favorite band play a full set right in front of me in a recording studio, just 15 feet away. i was the entire audience of people who were not working. i got a private show. it was amazing & i should have thought to take my record for them to sign
