Wife, mom and corporate peon a little too comfortably ensconced in the Boston 'burbs.
@oldflame I have three chronic health conditions, and have had to be on some sort of daily medication since I was 15. And yes, there have been side effects - one of my conditions is actually a side effect of the medication for the big heart condition. So I take a pill because I take a pill. Ugh, I know.
But each of these pills helps me stay alive and live an active and enjoyable and not-totally-bedridden life with my family. And for that, it's worth a few side effects. Maybe the drugs will be worth it for you too? But you'll never know unless you try them. If the side effects outweigh the benefits, you can stop taking them. Really.
@Lindsay Robertson Except John Denver and the Muppets, they get a pass. (And should be much higher up this list to boot.)
@geekspice The two are not necessarily mutually exclusive. As history has shown us.
Creepy and damaged, even a little bit, are incredibly overrated.
@franceschances Or, rather than looking down on them, you could realize that you both weren't a good fit, or you were in different places in your life, or both. Sometimes relationships don't work out, and it's not necessarily because one or both people is a major dingdong.
@Jane Hu No kidding. Absolutely solid gold.
@melis Please tell me the first post is a "curated" list of the best garbage other names you came up with...
@cherrispryte Ghost AND adorable babies AND basement torture implements, all in one place? This site may be too much for me.
@stuffisthings For a brief moment I thought it said "MixedSingle.Cow" and was ready to congratulate the spammer on his customization.
Polly, loved your advice for LW1. Extra points for the awesome Ping and Ferdinand references.
