Chickens I Am Very Circumspect About Counting Upon
        These chickens come in 2 flavors.  One is home,  The other is health.

       The past 4 months have been the absolute worst they have been, even since 1993 when I first began working on Jackson Square.

       But back then I had 3 things working in my favor.
a)  I was receiving a LOT more $$ in food stamps.  No records available, but I believe Raven and I received close to $150/month together.
b)  We were both working on the Square.
c)  We shared a $275 a month apartment.

a)  If I can stay warm this winter,
b)  If my health allows me to work long hours,
c)  If people from Northern Climes come here for Yule,
d)  If the teams i the Sugarbowl are from PROSPEROUS Northern Climes,
maybe, just MAYBE I can maybe enough $$ to begin seeking for a permanent home.

       Similarly for Mardi Gras and Valentine's Day.

       The aspiration is to have enough $$ to get a home after Gras.  Rent to own would be ideal.  A duplex would be even better.  Relatively Safe neighborhood half the distance to work would be ideal.

       No idea if this is even remotely possible, but it is what I want.


       Even though I do not feel as close to Oliver and Angie as I was feeling in September, and even though I do not want to share an apartment with them (or anyone else!), I would like them for next-door neighbors.

       Chilie (or is it Chilly?) who just came back to town does home repair  I like him.  If the building is run down, he can advise me, and do repairs over time.

       I do not care if the house is a mess for a year (one of the benefits of being a dirty Hippie!) so long as the kitchen, bath, and a place to sleep are functional, the roof does not leak, the building is secure from thieves, and I can put all my stuff piled into it as the repairs a progressing.

       I have no fucking clue how much $$ would be needed.  $5,000 to $6,000 is my tentative goal.


       The other chicken is even more iffy.

       Back in the summer of 2013 I stopped doing the Hb A1C blood testing.  I had $$ for the test kits but my apartment was too warm and the test did not work..  I flushed over $100 down the drain. {Ouch!}

       No $$ for daily blood testing since before my move.

       My diet has been strange.  Both from experimentation and from lack of $$.

       Both from what I have been feeling AND from what I have read (11/25/2014) that I may be ess diabetic than 6 months ago.  Maybe even cured.

       Wouldn't that be interesting!

       I have been having similar feelings and observations about dietary oxalates.  I have considerably MORE oxalates in my diet.  No oxalates in my tears.  Minimal leg cramping.  Almost NO painful "headless pimples".

       The answer to both seems to be my supplement regime.

       Seems to me the 2 key supplements for both diabetes and oxalates are high dose Niacin and high dose MSM.

       Protandim and my Biomat, I suspect, may also be helping but I have no idea if or how much.

       January slow season I go to a doc.  Maybe even in December, depending how frantic I am grasping for rent & food $$  S/he can look at my Hb A1C.  Oxalates are all up to me.

Actually you have all the symptoms of late stage long term untreated diabetes, including going blind, dementia, advanced neuropathy, and many other symptoms (about which you are in continual denial.)

I'm no fan of your idiot cheering squad here who comes in to cheer you on to your inevitable and near-term demise either. You girls can fuck right off.

Would people reading LJ know about the symptoms you list, if not seeing Alobar in person? He talks about his neuropathy reducing, for instance.

You make a good point. He does lie about this, all the time. He presents a much rosier picture than what is really going on. So that's unfair of me.
