General Discussion / Re: Another MDAO comedy show.....
« on: January 09, 2015, 10:44:54 pm »
The current rookie MDAO comedy class sometimes uses the room beside ours - the veterans' comedy class.

I try to freak out the rookies by asking "Excuse me, is this the I Can't Stop Watching Dog the Bounty Hunter Support Group?"   :o

The two teachers in the group spoil it for me every time, by saying:  "Hi, Peter!"

Oh well....

Peter   :P

Besides here, I'm also on  It's very can post pictures...there's even a Mature/I.M. Mature section, but you need one time permission to go there, otherwise it won't show on your index.

I'm also on  For anxiety, mainly.  Also big.  You have to type in something else to get the forums....I forget what exactly.

I sometimes look at  About meds, with a sense of humour.

So far I've read about a lot of cyber bullying and inability to remove your account once you joined.

I've never noticed either.  I assume you meant mood support groups.


General Discussion / telling people re my/brothers' mood disorders....
« on: January 07, 2015, 01:38:49 am »
Emailed my cousin in Germany, as I usually do at Christmas, with a brief "how are you," and nothing else.

This time I explained my and brothers' mood disorders, my support groups, my standup comedy through MDAO, and sent a couple of jokes I translated.

I speak German, but it's rusty since I'm a 67 year old orphan....LOL....  Had to look up a lotta words, like
"support group" - never learned that at home.  I also had to look up "cockroach."

I told her one of my Laffing like Crazy jokes - I was really depressed last summer.  Audience:  "How depressed?"  I was sooo depressed, the cockroaches in my apt felt sorry for me, and bought me a ticket to Canada's Wonderland.   ::)

Also told a guy in the building re above.

I live in a seniors' building - lotsa people spend months (it seems) in their apartments.  Some of us were discussing this, but I didn't suggest that maybe a lot of those people are time I will.

Hi, Em.....Maybe you could go to the first group or so with someone else?

Btw, MDAO groups, they ask at the beginning if you want to talk or you don't necessarily have to say anything.

You're making progress as you're now on an online support forum!   :)


General Discussion / Re: Started taking Lipitor, cholesterol medication...

Thanks, Paul.  Less pain lately when bending and such.  Pretty ugly when I take off my shirt!...the wounds and bruises.

Btw, a typical male (middle aged?) who avoids doctors and symptoms - ex Mayor Ford.  He said he had stomach pain "for months," and he only got it looked into lately?


General Discussion / gall bladder out on Dec 5....
« on: December 09, 2014, 05:56:15 pm »
Still recovering.  I'm a little better every day.  I was walking around (but wobbly) a couple hours after the operation.
The surgeon made 4 small incisions...but lotsa bruises around them.

Hi, guys.....Thanks for your input.  I haven't been thinking about this recently, as I had my gall bladder out on Dec 5....still healing....I may have a separate post on that.

Re my father rarely giving advice, he was a "hands off" father.  (contrary to popular opinion, not everyone should be a parent!!!!!)
My mother did most of the child rearing (5 boys).....paid the bills, signed report cards, shovelled the snow all the time!!!!

My folks were from East Prussia, a part of Germany adjoining Lithuania....the Russkies took it over during WWII.
I didn't know until late in life that my VERY shy, anxious mother was pressured by her parents to marry him because his family had $.....the $ disappeared when they fled the Russians.  Never imagined that my father was from a semi-monied family!

Not sure what emotion I'm feeling.

 My younger brother R has a photographic memory for family history.

My father worked at the same small meat market for ages......almost all the guys there German speaking.
My father received part of his salary in meat...a lotta much that my mother had to throw a lot of it out and not tell him - bad temper. He must've been dumb not to notice she did that. R said she buried the excess in the backyard - didn't know that.

 I knew the above except for burying the meat.......R said they started paying him partly in meat because they caught him stealing meat!!!! (not sure how they worked that out?) I only learned this yesterday.
 Ironically, the ONLY life advice my father ever gave me was "don't steal."

 My father could've gotten a higher paying union job (before the theft?) at Canada Packers, a giant company.....he didn't want to because then he'll have to improve his English. I guess he mainly spoke German at work.

General Discussion / Re: dermatology/slap the Dr. and others around....LOL
« on: December 02, 2014, 11:08:33 pm »
They now have a lot more (?) dermatologists.

I got served in 5 minutes....nothing wrong with my skin.  No slapping around.....LOL.

But, their little sheet on their policies says some procedures aren't covered by OHIP, but I'm sure they are.....oh well.

We do our own introductions.  I chose something like:

"I never realized Peter was an alien......him eating uranium sandwiches in class should've been a tip off!"

I sometimes post stuff to hopefully get a laff/improve my mood.

Peter :-*
