Events in Manchester make me think that the world is going to hell in a handbasket. Who the fuck walks into a concert attended mostly by kids, with a nail bomb? How warped is a person, a movement, that thinks this is acceptable? It just makes me want to give up on humanity, until I remember something that Mr. Rogers once said. "Whenever something bad happens, look for the helpers."
So I look for the helpers in Manchester.
And they're there.
I look for the helpers, and hear about long lines at local hospitals, donating blood.
I look for the helpers, and see people bringing the police tea and sandwiches.
I see the helpers and I feel like maybe the world isn't so fucked up after all.

My acid reflux has irritated the back of my throat, so that it feels weird when I swallow. But I'm swallowing all the time, which makes me hyper aware of it. *sigh* Can anyone out there say 'catch-22'?
I haven't had to deal with this stuff in a while, and it seems that there are now two schools of thought regarding acid reflux. The traditional school of thought is that it occurs when there's too much acid in the stomach. The new school of thought is that it's caused by a lack of stomach acid.
Which is it?
This is just one of the reasons that I think doctors are just a bunch of quacks, looking to get rich off the sick and the stupid.
In the meantime, I'm sitting here on the couch, debating whether I should take some antacids or eat something spicy???
