I don't like crowds either, except when I'm at Disneyland. They just don't bother me there, I suppose because they and I are both there for the same reason--to have fun! So get the hell out of my way, 'cause I've got to get on Big Splash Mountain, motherfu**er!

hhhhhhhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Mindy

let me think about this..many disabled people with physical disabilities can go to college..get a degree and become tax paying citizens

i had a friend who was badly burned and on disability who had been a nurse..she went back to college...got a master degree in health education and was able to go back to work as a nurse educator..she didn't want section 8 housing however

sometimes disabled people can't hold certain kinds of jobs but can hold others...i knew a man in Oregon who was terribly hurt in a logging accident but was then able to become a sociologist and work 4 Oregon in CFS

of course none of these examples wanted section 8 housing

the adrenaline surges sound like ptsd. what you witnessed and endured and did is traumatic.

also, thank you for doing the right thing. and thank you for standing up for Rose, those in need.

Not that it really matters, but the song Mr. Dylan was spitting out is actually "Senor" not "Senior". The irony there was amusing and so, worth mentioning
