to figure this out...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Satirical Blog

*(utilizing articles discussing facts)*

By:  Susan MeeLing

After the head injury caused a coma while I learned how to deal with the headaches, migraines, cognitive disorders, memory problems, and other medical conditions I went from College Algebra with Trigonometry & Calculus down to 2nd grade math.  Here is how logic works for someone like me::

~  It took awhile for the doctor's recommendation to use sticky notes, to help remember.

~  It took several months to realize sticky notes moved, let alone to remember to speak with the doctor.

~  After I finally remembered to ask the doctor about the note problem, notebooks were recommended.

~  When I could remember to pick up a notebook, it took a long time to learn similar to sticky notes, notebooks are not always where they were placed.

~  After I was able to organize the notebooks over several months I still had not learned notebooks are not always readily available, at the necessary time.

~  When I remembered to speak with the doctor about the notebook problem the doctor had few other suggestions, to assist memories better.

~  After several events and adding up sticky note and notebook location problems, I realized my skin goes everywhere I do.

~  Wanting my tattoos to only be for me and not for public consumption I started the ink on my legs, able to hide easier.

~  It would not be until many tattoos and several years later I would realize my memory problems were usually not as bad when wearing shorts, capri pants, or a skirt.

~  Between 3-5 years after my first tattoo I had the first tattoo completed on my arms, and my memory has slowly progressed towards an easier memory jolt.

 

 

When I say "it should not take a head injury to figure this out" it is partially in humor from personal experiences, towards understanding.

 

If I can laugh at my mistakes after recognizing and dealing with them, so can you.

 

You have the knowledge, understanding, and wisdom I lack in order to put everything together to fix the problems seen with abilities I do not have. 

 

Utilize the information within the blog to find genuine repairs and instead of complaining of the "hurtful" commentary, prevent the issues from reoccurring.

 

Then again, it should not take a head injury to figure that one out.

A set of situations a bit of time ago...

Back in 2001 I met a female through a male she was married to which because he had been friends with the manager at the #Chilis she worked at on I10 and #DeZavala in #SanAntonio #Texas, I had gotten the job as a to go order preparer. The female named Lisa was also going to college at #UTSA for her #RN degree though one day when I went into work I saw Lisa sitting on top of John's lap feeding him food and laughing after giving him a kiss before feeding him, when she noticed me walking into the building. Her body language changed and she jumped off of John's lap to sit on the other side of the booth, to wave at me smiling. I walked to the back area of the kitchen to clock in as one of her friends asked what I was doing, and another one of her friend showed me a flyer for the upcoming #TempleofFlesh event in 2001. I was pregnant at the time and was not interested as the male tried to convince me to go as he said, 'Some males have a thing for pregnant girls there'; knowing how I was being treated at the time, in reference to that particular situation I was in.


When I returned to the apartment I told my now dead-ex-husband though at the time in 2001 my then at the time husband, which had refused to contact Terry to let him know what was going on as I knew Terry needed to know. For three days I dealt with what I dealt with trying to get the correct thing done so it would be better as best as possible, though at the time to no avail. Essentially when it was realized I was not going to stop until the correct action was taken, the phone call was made. Then was when Terry had said he "wished [he] knew that three days ago as it would have been better for [him]."


Shortly after the phone call was when going over to Terry's apartment as it felt important to do so, and upon arriving I saw the difference between the last time of having been there to then. All three of us went to get pizza as well as they got a few beers prior to my needing to leave to go to work which unbeknownst to me at the time, I was going to be called into the office by the manager John about the situation. When I walked in and John had told me he needed to speak with me he then told me Lisa told him she told Terry and Terry had been told by my now dead-ex-husband about what I saw at work, which then John tried to tell how he thought what happened at work needed to stay at work at Chilis.


As a side note John had claimed he was a #NavySEAL though later the truth came out, and he had been a line cook in the #Navy branch of the #UnitedStatesofAmerica's #ArmedForces. That was my first experience of someone stealing valor that I had learned of, which disgusted me. I know realistically I am not the only one, who is and/or could be disgusted by such. As John complained about the fact that he and Lisa had been cheating on each other's spouses with one another which because of the fact I had walked into Chilis when I did she had to tell Terry and if I did not walk into Chilis then, she would not have had to tell Terry which in turn would have meant I would not have had to tell the truth on them and their cheating to my now dead-ex-husband.


Yes, that was actually explained to me that way. Similarly of how my biological mother, biological father, and biological sister in 2003 had blamed me for my biological sister having a threesome in their bed because if I had not given a hug and a kiss to my now dead-ex-husband my biological sister would not have felt lonely enough to have a threesome in their bed when she was in high school. Ironically I was also blamed for my biological sister smoking recreational marijuana in the garage at the time, though the irony of not being introduced to #MMJ until 2005 and not accepting the benefits of how it actually helped me medically until many years thereafter. However in 2003 I was blamed for that aspect, just as in 2001 I was blamed for those aspects; of course in both situations, wrongly I was blamed.


As per usual in situations which spouses of others assist cheating on spouses, the relationship between John and Lisa did not work out. Between the fact of their starting of their relationship through cheating on their spouses with one another as well as John had a wife who was pregnant and already had given birth to twins in conjunction with Lisa having been in college, I would not be surprised if I was wrongly blamed for that not working out as well.


At Chilis I dealt with constant problems from Lisa's friend after that at work to the point of when it was time for me to quit because of the problems for my medical after my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury as it was still less than one year from waking up from the coma when I was working at Chilis as well as pregnant, I switched my last two shifts to avoid the continuous problems added to my already stressful pregnancy.


However the night of the day which I had been lectured by John the manager and liar of claiming to be a Navy SEAL though never was, after work I went to the store to pick up a few odds and ends for Terry because of the fact Lisa had taken everything out of the apartment including the washer and dryer which had belonged to the apartment complex. Upon my return to Terry's apartment I could smell the alcohol on the other side of the door as Terry approached to open the door, as apparently the two had gone to get more beer while I was at work. As I walked in after giving the bags of towels, plates, silverware, cups, and etcetera to Terry I saw the map on the floor and the plans drawn up of what in their drunken state they were planning.


I asked to verify I understood what I saw and their response at the time was they "knew no one would call the police if they raided a crack house, because what would the people running the crack house do when telling the police what was taken?"


I talked them out of it knowing it was mainly because of the amount of alcohol in their systems when Terry walked me over to the fireplace and showed me a picture of some guy he called #DirtyHarry, and asked if I knew who the guy was. When I told him I did not recognize the name or the picture, Terry pointed to the signature on the picture telling me about some movie. No offense to the guy or those involved with such, though I did explain to Terry of I was not allowed to watch movies above a G rating without permission until I was 13 years old and when I turned 13, I needed to get permission before I could watch a PG13 movie.


Terry looked dumbfounded as well as drunk and asked me to explain the situation again, which I did. Then he asked about how my head injury occurred which I thought was good because he was not drinking anymore alcohol at the time, so I continued talking with him so he could sober up a bit instead of paying more attention to the movie as well as the firearm on the mantle shelf; not realizing then of certain portions, which could have been of additional concern admittedly at the time. At a point Terry asked me where I grew up and as some comments were made and I quieted a bit in regards of the names I was called, when it was okay to speak again I explained the answers in fuller detail to Terry.


He sat down on the lawn chair to look up at me and asked me a few questions about several aspects as to why I joined, when I explained I had fought to be emancipated and asked him if he was in the #Army branch of the Armed Forces for the United States of America during 1993. He nodded slowly, and I informed him I was growing up at the time in #NewJersey and I remembered what the people I knew at the time went through and I knew I needed to do what I could to prevent such from occurring any further as per the nightmare I had been having as a child at the time.


He laughed nervously and asked what I brought to his apartment as at the time, he did not look inside of the bags. I showed him several brown towels joking about him being a male, among the other little odds and ends here and there. He laughed and asked if I knew what he did for a living, which I shook my head side to side as I did not understand what he meant by that, asking what that had to do with anything. He asked me if I knew what company the couches which were gone were made by, which I shrugged my shoulders, unsure of what he meant or why the was relevant to the situation in reference to the Dirty Harry guy or the stuff I picked up from the store. He asked more questions before he asked me what the full after effects were from my Psalm Sunday 2000 head injury, which I told him what I was told by the doctors at the time up to that point. It had not yet been figured out of the going from College Algebra to 2nd grade math yet, though it was known about the memory deficits and cognitive disorders. It would be a few years before that aspect was more recognizable, in a more official sort of way.


As the years went on here and there Terry would pop into see what was going on including when purchasing my house in San Antonio, which he was at the house warming #BBQ and joked with me about my BBQ skills being a bit of a surprise to him being from New Jersey. When I told him that was the first time I had BBQed, he took a few steps back and asked how I knew what to do. I told him I knew how to cook, and I enjoy cooking. I did not see what the big deal was in reference to BBQing, as I just saw it as another form of cooking. A few times I had seen Terry here and there again though after a certain point, life was what life was. I hope he is well, of course.


As a side note similar to #SCUBADiving and earning first place for my chili during the chili cookoff, if BBQ had been considered a big deal in the state of #Texas at the time; I did not know that, though may be why Terry was surprised I could BBQ. Possibly?


Though I remember he was an #ArmyRanger or something of the sort before and at some point he had asked me later on when in my house about where I was, during the events of 11 September 2001; and as we were alone and I knew I could trust him in that regard, I told him part of what I did on that day. I asked him what he did and where he was which was #ISR, which then he was quiet for a little bit. He asked a few other questions about what was going on with my son and my daughter, which I told him about the current situation at the time. He asked a few other questions which at this point I feel as though he realized certain things a bit quicker than I in reference to certain medical aspects, though I guesstimate if he found out about my SCUBA Diving he probably would have been a bit surprised having completed some of the stuff he had been a part of when involved with the Armed Forces as he had.


I can joke, he may have seen a boat. Possibly, he could know the difference between the types of boats too.


Nonetheless the portions of which in regards of that time just before the events thereof, were as they were. Whatever occurred in reference to his ex-wife Lisa had been what they had been, though I know she had a bitter taste towards the military after the combined situation in reference to both individuals with military backgrounds. One who had been truthful to her and treated her better than she had ever been treated and one who had been in though had lied to her about what he had done when in the military, though both did not have much to do with her afterwards from the timeframe of. The latter of the two having not completed what the first of the two had in regards of #SpecialForces types of missions I could see easily offending quite a few including the first of the two, especially since in the Special Forces it is known better to only take credit for situations and valor that were accomplished compared to that other. Despite one having been in the Army and the other having been in the Navy, any branch of the United States of America's Armed Forces individual is going to be quite particular when in reference to certain aspects of service in the Armed Forces.


Stealing valor is not a valid option, at any point.


One does not have to be a #Ranger or a #SEAL, to know and understand that.


It also should not take a head injury to figure out stealing valor, would upset a large number of females and males who earned their valor.



A picture I took of snow in a field in a way, in Washington state in 2013

I would guesstimate if Terry knew what I have been up to now, he would not have seen such back then. Admittedly, I wonder what he is up to and I do not mean his height.

The ultimate measure of an individual is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at the time of challenge and controversy.

We must reject the idea that everytime a law is broken society is guity, rather than the law breaker. 

Freedom is never-more than one generation away, from exinction.  We do not pass freedom on through our blood stream because freedom must be fought for, protected, and handed on for the next generation to do the same.

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

It should not take a head injury to figure this out, because you are smarter.
