Shitty mental health system

Posted By on Wed, Sep 18, 2019 at 9:02 AM

bitch-fork-pill.jpg
Most of the medications they've given me don’t work, and most of their other treatments like CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) don’t work either, and I think that's mostly because I was misdiagnosed. All that most of the medications do to me is make me stupid or sedate me—other than that, no benefits. The doctors even agree with me, but then continue giving me the meds that don’t do anything. It makes no sense. They refuse to reassess my diagnosis. To make matters worse, pretty much all of them refuse to taper me off the medications I don’t want to take, so I get horrible withdrawals. Any kind of problems with my mental health that I ask for help for, they refuse to deal with. Their OTs or whatever they're called mostly fixate on my diagnosis and anything about anxiety/social skills problems go in one ear and out the other it seems.

Trees: you CAN have too much of a good thing

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2019 at 3:34 PM

finger-on-target.jpg
A big thank you to the guys in khaki from Gagetown, NB who arrived Sunday afternoon to cut my fallen tree down to size, done in 10 minutes, and neatly stacked curbside all ready for the HRM chipper. BUT I couldn't help wondering what all this Hurricane Dorian clean-up is costing the taxpayer, much of which could be prevented if the municipality seriously rethought its tree-planting policy: On my walks over the weekend, I noticed that almost all of the fallen trees had very shallow roots; our urban environment of concrete and asphalt makes it impossible for trees to send down deep roots. My particular young tree had been planted right into the wires extending from my roof corner and right up against my underground water main. Did we learn nothing from Hurricane Juan? HRM must stop planting trees that grow to be 100 feet high: I suggest that HRM plant trees native to NS that will grow to be no more than 15-to-20 feet high. Everyone will still get their summer shade and carbon-cleaning, but they will no longer be a hazard to people's homes and overhead wires. There will also be a LOT fewer leaves in the fall clogging up our stormwater catch basins, which is a major cause of flooding.

Unfashionable hipster hoes

I keep seeing chicks these days that look so unattractive, who clearly do the most when it comes to fashion trends. However, they would probably look a hell of a lot prettier if they actually did nothing. Like for instance, I saw this chick that would probably look pretty cute, IF she hadn't shaved off the sides of her head and put on these wacky square eyeglass frames with the bar across the top of the lenses (are they even prescription)? A lot of chicks are wearing those weird mom jeans rolled up halfway up their calves, clothes from the ’80s, blue lipstick and all kinds of craziness. Gurls be lookin tore up from the floor up! You are never going to meet a man looking like that. That's OK, I'll take all the men for myself, you keep fuglying yourself up with these weird-ass trends.

Bitch better have my money

Why the FUCK does it take so damn long to get a PayPal into my account? It's 2019. We have the technology to put a man on the moon but we can't get a bank transfer to happen instantly? For fuck's sake! Banks are so annoying, I should just keep my money under my bed in a shoebox or something.

Don't yeet the lanes

Posted By on Fri, Aug 23, 2019 at 9:36 AM

Never did I think I would be a certified Halifax Angry Bike Person complaining to The Coast, but here I am. To whoever thought it would be good idea to extend the bus stop sidewalk four feet into the street on South Park Street, I sincerely wish you had not suggested this. Not only did the city yeet the bike lanes away, it now makes it dangerous to ride a bike because you have to avoid the sidewalk that pops out into the street. Once again, Halifax has robbed bikers of beloved bike lanes.

Drivers

Posted By on Wed, Aug 14, 2019 at 9:20 AM

OK, I didn't think I would have to do this or submit anything like this to The Coast, but I have to. It's the way people drive. Either they drive too slow, or they drive too fast for the conditions and are running stop signs.

I'm a professional driver who drives for a living, and the stuff happening every day on our roads is unbelievable. I've seen people cutting people off when they turned right in the middle of the highway! And don't get me started on running red lights. For the love of god, people, there's a Driver's Handbook: please read it.

Texting, yeah that's part of it, but when you're supposed to be doing a hundred on the Circ and somebody's doing 75, something's wrong. People get frustrated when people sit in the left-hand lane, under the speed limit, thinking, "This is OK, it's a 100-series highway, I can do what I want."

For all that is holy, please learn to drive. I think to the left of your steering wheel is a turn signal; it works, so you should use it. And at night turn your headlights on cuz nobody can see you with your daytime running lights on and you have no back lights.

Multi-level marketing

Posted By on Thu, Jul 11, 2019 at 8:30 AM

People fall into two categories when it comes to multi level marketing: They either recognize that it's a bullshit industry, or they've invested thousands in a company and are not making the money they thought they would make. Who is buying into this?—Perplexed

Finally folks are back on the Common in force, enacting their right to chill and not be messed with. It's a special preserve that no rich developer can buy, no bank can rename in their glory and no advertising will be seen. It's great and for the most part people do a pretty good job sharing it respectfully.

What would be disrespectful? Any of the aforementioned endeavours to make capital gain, for sure. Blasting your own music without asking everybody in the city first whether they want to hear it? Definitely. Why then do radio stations get the privilege above all other businesses to advertise themselves with speakers on top of trucks in the guise of a tasteless block party with no guests? Trucks on the Common?! Top 40? It's not fair to subject others to what you think they want to hear.

The Oval should respect this as well, but instead as people lay reading books and children try roller skating, churlish radio hosts talk about the gnarliest place to get laid in the world and emit shrill compressed cackles over each other. The best thing about the radio is that you don't have to listen to it if you don't want to. The best thing about the Commons is that no one is allowed to blatantly advertise in your face. Radio station promoters go home!

Bland to the Bone

Posted By on Thu, Sep 7, 2017 at 9:30 AM

Why are so many (apartment) buildings being painted a dreary grey? Why did they paint the Oxford grey? I don't understand why a place that lives in overcast winter misery so much of the year would chose a colour that is so sad! I get it, it's “clean and professional,” right? —And I Thought I Disliked Beige

Inconvenient politeness

Posted By on Thu, Jun 29, 2017 at 4:59 PM

Why do people 50 feet ahead insist on holding a door for you? They make eye contact and you are then compelled to hurry. Fuck that! My momma raised a man.  I'll get my door and hold it for those immediately behind me. You are welcome Halifax. I might have to start a blog on todays society. Who knows? Might get an audience 🙂—Walking With Coffee

Why are people in Canada so bad at bartering???

Posted on Tue, Nov 10, 2015 at 4:00 AM

For the last year or so I have been slowing selling items on Kijiji. Particularly for larger items there seems to be a trend. What has been happening is that buyers have become persistent on making their first offer a hard price?! They have the gull to first reduce the price usually by a 1/3 or more then make it their final offer?? I usually follow up by offering to meet them half way with the price and the response 9/10 is "no" and there is no more communication. I actually don't mind on moving my price but how do you expect me to move on my price when you won't move on yours?!?! It is so ignorant!!! Drives me nuts!!! —online seller
