Child with a mental illness

My partner and I both suffer from various mental illnesses - treatable and manageable.  We knew, genetically speaking, any child of ours was likely to develop a mental illness.  I thought I could accept the guilt.  Secretly, I hoped that, if by some miracle, our child was given a stable and secure childhood then, maybe, he would be OK.  I do not think there is anything wrong with a person who has a mental illness, I just know how exhausting and terrifying being mental ill can be to a person.  Now, I see my child slipping and slipping into a life-time of pain.  He was 4 when he had his first panic attack.  He is eight now.  He is happy, intelligent, compassionate and often overwhelmed with anxiety.  A few days ago, I saw him staring with the exact look of fear I have seen on my face.  It really threw me, I can not get that look out of my mind.  I do not know why I am writing this, maybe, I hope someone can help me help my little boy.

First woman on FBI most wanted list

Given the political and economic climate of the day, is there not someone more of a threat to national security than a member of the Black Liberation Army whose trial is circumspect to say the least.  Why now?

We should have basic entitlements - part one.

Two stories, in the Washington Post this morning, illustrate why the word entitlement should not have a negative connotation.  Homeless teens are not entitled to a bed in a shelter?  Since when is living in a shelter a luxury?  What really sickens me, DC has a surplus of money and the local government keeps talking about helping the homeless while cutting aid.  Not providing a child a bed should be criminal.  I do not care how Libertarian, Fiscal-conservative, Liberal or whatever someone labels themselves as, this can not be an issue you can seriously debate.  A bed is an entitlement we are all entitled to have.  These children deserve a safe and warm place to sleep.  The second story concerns the Fort Peck Indian reservation in Montana.  I could write a manifesto about the disparaging treatment of Native Americans in this country.  But, come one, cutting funding for schools in a place where schools provide all of the basic services a community has access to?  This school system is in dire need of more funding, not less.  School counsellors, summer programs, free and quality food are things we are all entitled to have.

Music people, stop scrolling a moment. This art is by Pushead. Brian Schroder, Pushead, is most widely known for his album cover art, art for thrasher magazine, art for t-shirts.
but (or and)
Pushead put together a killer “unofficial” top 100 albums of the 80s.
A tumblr I deeply respect lovingly and very carefully curated the full collection of MP3s and made sure they were tagged properly.

But, what then?Browse. To play, you must make a playlist. You may add songs or entire albums to playlists. Look for the + button; it’s small but you’ve found more challenging details.
When your playlist is ready, look for the play button. It looks like a play button and appears above the playlist.
A couple of requests
