News and Reviews for October 9th 2013


Yes it’s Wednesday, and I’m tired, then again I always seem to be tired, I guess it’s because I really don’t sleep. The last week or so I’ve been going to bed between 1am and 2am and getting up at 6am so I haven’t gotten much sleep, just wide awake. It could be all the crap I have going on in my life right now like the fact that the washer is broke and the part I needs costs $80 plus shipping and I think I’ve got $5 in my bank account right now. It could also be the pain that I’m in and the fact that no one believes me or actually cares. Went to the doctor a couple weeks ago and she actually asked me why I was in pain. Really? I thought she was a doctor and I thought she was supposed to tell me why I was in pain? At least I thought that was how it worked, I could be wrong, maybe it’s a new way of treatment?  Oh well.. life goes on I guess, who cares about my problems right? read the news..
