Roe v. Wade

What do a bunch of old men know about women and their bodies? It is unbelievable in this day and age for government to invade the privacy of women in the decisions they make regarding their own bodies. The right to privacy is guaranteed by the constitution of the United States. Any decisions a woman makes about her own body is her personal right; no one should be able to tell her what to do. The solution is to educate women and men about ways to avoid conception. Government has no business coming between a woman and her right to privacy.

One of the women in my carpool told me that last summer she had a visit from Prince at her home near Chanhassan Minnesota. She said that he was canvassing the neighborhood for the Jehovah's Witnesses! Not sure if I believe her.

In the 90s I used to see Prince cruising around on his motorcycle. Paisley Park is nearby and he lived in the neighborhood.

In January, after feeling achy and tired one too many times I finally relented and went to the doctor where I learned that I have fibromyalgia. Of the 18 different tender points used to diagnose fibromyalgia, I have 12. Or at least I had twelve on that day. After reading everything I could find on this disease I concur with my doctor. I have so many of the symptoms it's scary. But in the end it's a relief to know that it has a name. My case seems to be fairly mild except when I have a flare up and then I am in utter pain and fatigue.

My SAD has been pretty good this winter. I attribute that to meds.
