Must move from this town

I need away from where I live. I came here to finish my college education when I was a single mom in my 40s. I finished it and ended up staying because my children were in school. They are out now, my youngest just turned 20, and I need to go. Some years ago I became aware that one of the biggest events in this town is a particular festival that is supposed to celebrate the diversity of this community.

Hate the patriarchy

Long time lurker, coming out on this blog because I don't know where else to talk about this. Last Friday, I called the Southern Baptist Church in which I grew up, to ask them to NOT hold a memorial service for my mother. I spoke to the senior pastor, and can I just how much I truly hate that condescending, pastoral tone? I voiced my opinion because my father requested this memorial, and my siblings support this.

      Tomorrow (4th) I start to wean off Pregabalin.  It's seriously aggravating my polymorphic light eruption, which had pretty much buggered off in recent years.  Plus, it wasn't doing that good a job on the constant achiness that I was taking it for in the first place.   So, it has to go.
