I’m horrified but not astonished.
A 2007 Rhode Island study looked at 30 men and 30 women who had just had coronary-artery bypass surgery and tracked the medications they were given. The researchers were astonished to find that men got pain medications, while women got sedatives. With chronic pain problems, women’s symptoms are often minimized.

One time a girl got mad at me because I said she was an animal eater. She said it was rude and offensive but had no problem being called a meat eater. It really is concerning how deep the disconnect is in some people.
and my boyfriend finally comes home Thursday after being away in Kuwait for 4 months …
