I am alone. I am *completely* alone.

Once again, I found myself living temporarily (thank goodness!) as a bachelor. The Wife has gone down to Tampa for her job this weekend, and the girls are with my mother-in-law until I get them tomorrow afternoon. I have been alone in my house since Thursday afternoon.

It's not been all fun and games. I've worked extra shifts at the hospital, both yesterday and today. I'm completing my project on schizophrenia for my licensure class. I have to mow the grass tonight, or else the neighbors will surely knock on my door and demand that I do so. I did pick up Capote and Flightplan from the neighborhood Blockbuster, so I may blog about those movies if I find time to watch them.


  1. I'm completing my project on schizophrenia for my licensure class.

    If the following statement is anywhere in your notes, I would kindly ask that you consider removing it: Schizophrenia is incurable.


  2. Anon: Thanks for your comment. I have not written the statement "schizophrenia is uncurable" anywhere in my project, but that is not to say that I won't write "schizophrenia has no known cure." There is a difference, as I'm sure you realize. Schizophrenia is a brain disorder, and studies show that it has a genetic link. There are medicines available to help with symptoms, but at this point there is no known cure.

  3. SR: For the life of me, I don't know why I called you "Anon," when you've clearly left your calling card. All I can say is, I must have been tired when I wrote my comment to you.

    About schizophrenia, there is a camp of people who believe that it can be cured. You clearly seem to be one of those campers. I don't know yet where I am on the spectrum, but it is certainly my hope that there is a cure.
