  • FOCUSING ON THE FLAWS OF FUNDAMENTALISM SINCE 2005

     

    "Childbearing. Child rearing. Gender equality. Religion. Race. Regionalism. A woman's right to her body. Money/welfare. My god, everything my mama and Miss Manners ever said NOT to talk about among strangers!!"

    Free Jinger is a free speech zone.  We do not allow hate speech and we limit direct discussion of children. If you don't like what someone is saying, challenge them. Logic and reason are prized here, as well as thoughtful debate. Be prepared to don your asbestos underoos, though.

    If you are not okay with these topics, just leave. They are the point of this board.

    Or, as one of our members said: "What is discussed in this forum is Supreme Court stuff--literally--...the venting might be ranting. No grammar police, no fully enforced punctuation rules, but please don't wade in if things religious and reproductive will harm your psyche, because this should be a safe place to marvel at the massive political and social movements about to overtake our nation. And recipes."

    You have been warned. Welcome!

      omgosh she would have made me want to go home and get my wedding dress and Miss Havisham up with her....... I'd start calling the male nurses pip.... Oh yes, that is something I would have gone along with....

      That sounds awesome.  I mean, not his life of crime, but the fact that he was hallucinating it. My lady with the uti and the delicate mental health hauled her 1940s-era wedding dress out of storage and was wandering the halls in a very Miss Havisham state.  It was kind of great, except she was scaring the other residents with the whole FBI thing.

      He has a neat belly side, he's got that tiny white patch just under his neck...like a little tie.  And then he's got kind of an extra wide cumberbund...white patch between his front legs and then the white down at the bottom.  I munch on his fuzzy belly regularly   I'd like to think we're immune to the cute, but I know that's totally false.  The older cats just give us these ugly looks because he get away with murder.  He's got this thing he does when he gets in trouble....we go through the "GETDOWNFROMTHEREDAMMITTHOR!" spray bottle, what have you....then he disappears. Walk around the kitchen island or into the hallway....he's flopped all sprawled out on the floor giving the MOST pathetic "I'm so tired and so sorry" look ever.  We cave.  @LadyCrow1313 That's the kitchen, old old linoleum, I'm not even sure it comes like that anymore!  The rug I think has the no slip on the bottom....I don't know how to wash dishes without making a bigger mess so I have rugs everywhere!

      OMGOSH YASSSSSSSSSSSSSS. I had a patient once who was back in the days when he was breaking into houses and businesses and was hallucinating that he was doing a "job". Kept threatening to off me if I ratted him out. Probably one of my favorite dementia patients ever. Dude was doing some seedy stuff in his younger life, me thinks.

      I used to work in elder care.  I left because since I didn't work the medical side of things, the pay was terrible, but I LOVED my dementia patients. I do have to say, you haven't really lived until you've had to talk with a schizophrenic with dementia and a UTI who's having a delusion involving mass marriages and the FBI coming to kill us all.
