  1. I really want to thank Dr Aluta for saving my marriage. My husband really treat me bad and left the home for almost 1 month i was sick because of this,i was not my self again, then i told my friend about my husband case then she told me to contact Dr Aluta that he will help me bring back my husband he told me that my husband is under a great spell of another woman. They cast a spell of return back of love on him. And he came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again, i want you all who are having relationship, ex and even husband problem to contact Wish you all success contact me on my mail above she is for real

  2. Still don’t see the big deal about Tegan and Sara but whatever makes you gay is fine by me.

    I had to create a lot of tabs and bookmarks for the links. There is a lot of good stuff to read. I might comeback later to comment about it. I’m not too thrilled about reading more stuff about Voldemort especially after reading more about his tax plan. Ugh.

    My advice: learn the differnce between credits and deductions for your taxes. Do research on tax laws before the tax season starts ince the human cheeto takes office. Speak to tax professionals to maximize your tax savings. Get some investment income that is federal tax free people. Use tax deferred accounts like 529 College Savings plans and charitable plans….. anyways, i went on a tangent here but it is important.

  3. Thank you for the “I’m not brave, I just have cancer” link. While I don’t have cancer, it really captures a lot of the feelings that go with being chronically ill and very unhealthy at 23. It’s been a full year since I’ve been healthy. It’s frustrating that my answer for what I want for Christmas this year is the same as last year: to not feel sick, a body that works, a healthy body. To not be in pain every single day. Hell, I’d settle for a diagnosis, so I could stop having stress dreams that this undiagnosed pain is something that will kill me.

    Though nobody has called me brave–because chronic pain is invisible I get called lazy and useless and told I’m not doing enough. Not that I want to be called brave (because people have said that for being queer, for being trans and it always leaves a sour taste in my mouth) because that’s awkward at best, but it would at least acknowledge the struggle.
