    While we understand that Free Jinger is the internet "home" for many of our posters, Free Jinger is not a support board and therefore is not an appropriate place to seek out serious psychiatric advice or support. Free Jinger, and its staff are not equipped to deal with these situations. Any post threatening self-harm or suicide will be locked and the poster will be referred to appropriate resources.

    If you need help escaping an abusive or fundamentalist environment, please dial 2-1-1 in the US to reach the United Way, 1-800-363-9010 to reach the National Domestic Violence Hotline in Canada, or 116 123 in the UK to reach Samaritans. All are confidential and can provide links to local resources that can offer you a way out.

    The Childhelp National Child Abuse Hotline 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) is dedicated to the prevention of child abuse. Serving the United States, its territories, and Canada, the hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with professional crisis counselors who, through interpreters, can provide assistance in over 170 languages. The hotline offers crisis intervention, information, literature, and referrals to thousands of emergency, social service, and support resources. All calls are confidential.

    If you are contemplating suicide, you do need to speak to a professional. Please call 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK in the US, 1-800-448-3000 in Canada, or 116 123 in the UK. You can also text 471471 to reach the US suicide hotline.

      another seizure tonight.  Fortunately they're more like his hands get spastic and he shakes a bit rather than a full blown grand-mal. But I know those are probably coming. Fucking idiot VA doctors. I have to get up the energy to call the attorney that was recommended to me to sue their fucking asses.

      We've had too many tornadic storms for my tastes. Last night, a tornado went through my daughter's small town. She's ok but they may be without power for days. I'm a basket case, however!

      I survived the graduation extravaganza yesterday! The graduate thoroughly enjoyed the meal I made, and was excited to have some baked goodies to take home.
      It was bittersweet though, as most of the guests had vivid memories of when the graduate was born, so we were definitely feeling the passage of time yesterday.

      Quick update, blog post next week: She is mine! And she already made friends with a Collie living in our village during our walk. She is really cheeky, super intelligent and while we were outside all the people we walked past were like „awww“ and stopped to talk to us. So happy!
