Where Dani writes about… just about everything!
Have any of you heard about the zoloft lawsuits that are going on? Not only has Zoloft worsened depression in some of the individuals that have taken it, but it can also cause birth defects when pregnant women take it — even though it was previously classified as a moderately safe drug for said pregnant women to take. Not only that, but Zoloft doesn’t mix well with MAOs. If someone has taken MAOs even as long as two weeks before they take Zoloft, there still may be a high enough concentration of the MAOs in their blood to mix with the Zoloft and… well, bad things can happen. I’ll just leave it at that for those of you who are not into biology and medicine to the degree that I am.
Luckily for me, the only medicines that I took during either one of my pregnancies that were outside of the norm were safe ones. One was for the pinkeye that I contracted midway through my pregnancy with my oldest son, and the other one was for the debilitating itching that began taking place during the third trimester of my most recent pregnancy. Before taking either one of these drugs, I consulted with more than one source to make sure that they were okay. And when I found out that they were, I took them as needed.
Just saying… this chair has been with us for three generations now — hence the color changes. My mother sat in it when she was growing up. Then I sat in it when I was growing up. Now Jason sits in it, and when he’s too old, James will.
I found this on YouTube, and I couldn’t help myself — I had to share it here.
What do you look for in a potential boyfriend?
Most importantly, goals and ambitions. You have to have the passion to make something of yourself, and the drive to set the various things in motion that will one day make that a reality. Having a job is important to me as well, or at the very least, going to school so that you can get a good one is — because even though the economy continues to recess, I’m not going to entrust the basic needs and care of my two already existing children to someone whose ability to provide for them is questionable. If I didn’t already have kids, I would say that being able to put a roof over both of our heads would be acceptable — but I want more for my kids than just a roof over their heads and the bare basics.
I don’t think it’s bad that I want my children to be able to enjoy nice things, some of which I didn’t get to when I was their ages or things that weren’t available when I was a kid — because, you know, there’s a difference between being a child of the eighties and one post-millennium. Namely the difference between the technology available in both eras… I mean, as a child all we had were VHS tapes. DVDs were made during my late childhood and early adolescence, if I recall. And the iPhone and iTouch didn’t come out until 2007.
I wouldn’t mind being with someone who is religious, just as long as we agree to disagree on key points of whatever religion that might be if it comes down to that — either that, or we choose to leave religion out of our relationship. I don’t want to be seen as someone who can potentially have a guy X amount of babies, and I would never entrust my sexuality to someone who was opposed to birth control and eventual sterilization. I would want to be with someone with whom I could be my geeky self, continuing to play MMOs and video games without being seen as “weird” for that… even though now we live in a time where that’s encouraged, so that one’s not too much of a big deal any more.
I’d also want to be with someone who was not looking to play “father” to my sons. Step-father, maybe. Role model, sure. But they already have fathers. You can’t be the biological father for someone who already has one, as all of us have a mother and a father. Maybe that’s the nerdy side of me speaking.
And most importantly, you have to be someone that I’d trust around my kids. That right there is the single most important thing… because if I can trust you around my kids, and I wouldn’t mind them getting to know you as someone that Mommy liked, the rest of it begins to fall into place nicely and neatly.
