A woman who murdered another - a stranger has been found not responsible due to Schizophrenia - WTF kind of example has been set? AGAIN. I feel incredibly sad for the victims family, so kill someone - say your 'crazy & the voices made you do it' and your set free? I met someone who was responsible for 2 deaths due to a drug induced hallucination & the voices in her head'- she too was set free by the judge over a decade ago - she told me herself 'she felt special' because she was 'let go' & the father who lost his daughter was a "fucking nut" because he wanted her to pay for what she did. Go figure.
I wonder if she had been sent to jail she might be slightly more 'normal, she might have gotten the HELP she needed.. 'she MIGHT have understood the pain she inflicted and showed a little remorse, she didn't then & doesn't now. Apparently this woman now is 'FINE' again - what happens the next time she goes off her meds? Who will be next? Today, I heard a drunk driver today got 10 years - was he not temporarily insane from the alcohol? I don't imagine she will have 'much of a life' here, she will just move and start somewhere no one knows her (just like the woman I met) yet the death of the other woman will go on and continue to hurt her family & friends for EVER.
Another hot topic I have 'been there' & blogged about it -Credit cards and insurance - apparently- if you get sick- the insurance will help you pay off your credit card- GOOD fucking luck with this! IT is a SCAM - I KNOW - I had it and the moment I could not make a payment it became 'null & void' - so much for all that extra money I forked out! It was before my brain surgery when I was VERY sick & they made me SICKER from the constant HARASSMENT they inflicted daily with calls and threats for months. Someone from MasterCard called & told me - if I didn't pay my credit card he would "... come to my house & make me pay my fucking card!" I called head office (it was a struggle to get help) & they had 'heard' the calls & what this person had threatened - he was fired, I was told and my 'CREDIT card debt would disappeared' & it did. Hindsight (after sharing my experience I was told) I should have taken MasterCard to COURT & would have won. The same thing happened when the bank 'tried to deny our Mortgage insurance, because my illness did not 'suit their guidelines'.. & "being a stay at home mom - did not count or contribute to anything in a marriage of over 20 years" - FUCK THAT.
I heard a voice then (blogged about it extensively) God - told me to get off my ass to to the bank and get what we deserved. I did.
The second time they did NOT decline me.
It was a miracle I am thankful to God for daily... as we were very close to losing our home.
When I think of these past events in our life, I am reminded that The POWER of PRAYER changes things. Faith in God. ASK. Believe, Receive. I did not ask for money, I did not ask to have my house paid off - I asked for strength, guidance & help and surrendered to God.

I have heard a voice too - never kind or hateful, Gods presence constantly reminds me to:
Be kinder, nicer, better. Love more. Forgive.. let go.. get past it. Help, serve - do what you can to make each day better. Paint someone a gift to let them know they are loved. Done.
I've started another big canvas.. an owl & cannabis - of course.
No iPad yet- apparently I need to make an appointment' to have it fixed, which makes me think - they did not need me to make an appointment when I bought it and spent a small fortune. hmmmmmmmm.
