I could see a bright shein of blood on the back heel part of one of the good brown slippers, from a foot skin picking session that had gone too deep. I'm reminded it's a dumb habit, picking at the body, that can cause clothing or footwear damage ... from blood that shoild be inside the body.The urge to painfully haul up a leg into pole position to idly pick at my foot skin is screaming at me. It's like any addicition; I want to and need to feed it.

The Proud Boys are a group of like-minded metaphorical cock-spanks---not literal because they abstain from self gratification and it only counts if it's going into a lady---whose hilarious name belies their juvenile outlook. To join you also have to be beaten up until you can name five cereals for breakfast because your mother got it all ready for you when you were a kid or some such.In their rhetoric I'd be counted an Omega and not wanted because I would bring t

The ever boil was lanced and gunk shot out the side and top. The during was the worst part, for the fucker had risen to where nerve endings are and the squeeze pain was exquisite. So intense that after it stopped, and the area now drained was less hurty than before, that I got an epic post-pain high. I keep walking around marvelling at just how fucking painful that was but that it's not happening now. It's like I'm happy saying "Jesus, how fucked was that?!" and feeling it too.The ever boil; proof positive that something awful happening that then stops is better than something nice happening.I feel like a high five is owed. Woooooo!

Sometimes when you have OCPD, PTSD, anxiety and depression and you go for a ride and a think you may end up in a state of disassociation. I had one on the lake ride, with angry crying and carrying a crippling amount of emotional baggage.

Via our Chris today, whose royal commission objections are mounting towards jihad: Labor fundamentally undermined the integrity of the financial system by partially shifting responsibility for repaying debts from the borrower to the lender, which is insane.
