    So, I literally am stupid

    as all get out. I am sensitive, and get excited/ sad over the smallest things. A friend (super smart one) recently said, "I hate being smart, it would be much easier to be ignorant and dumb." What she doesn't get though, is that ignorance, isn't bliss. No matter who believes...

    I don't really think I rescued a cat,

    in fact I think I may have stolen him from his mother. I live in a rural area and there are feral cats aplenty. One night, while walking my dog I heard a kitten frantically meowing somewhere out in a grassy field. I took the dog home and returned a few minute later with a light...

    I think this Group should be called "I Are An

    I was not diagnosed with early onset dementia

    as you might have inferred from a previous (soon to be deleted) experience. My father had dementia (and passed before 70) and my grandpa had (at least) Parkinson's. I got a little nervous when I googled some things that were happening to me and it popped up "dementia." You...
