Practicing gratitude. But first, a temper tantrum!

So, I’ve been laying low because I’ve been processing exactly how all of this turned out for me. Long story short: I GOT SCREWED! Not only was my settlement offer considerably less than what I was expecting, but I will only walk away with about 30% of Gross settlement amount. 30 FUCKING PERCENT! Now, this […]

Money in hand. Now what?

Many of us are receiving settlement offers for amounts of money that exceed anything we’ve seen at one time and probably more than some of us make in a year.

Truth: A Painful Pill to Swallow

My email inbox had a Google alert linking to an article in the Montreal Gazette. Upon reading it my first reaction was, “Who the EFF is this guy thinking he has any right to talk about the issues surrounding WOMENS’ birth control pills!?! Is he even a doctor!?!” Well, it turns out he is, , […]
