Well here you goGirl Power  *Circle Share* or ( Girls are a Gay man's best friends )I don't release circles very often, but when I do, they are handpicked and filled with interesting and enganging , awesome and active users.This circle includes my absolute most favorite women on Google+ that I know, interact with and call friends. These beautiful women have a variety of different interests and everybody who is in this circle wants to be in this circle.

Stephanie Calahan513FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 1 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of women on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1310 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone (this is shared public too).If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  See the bottom of this message for the original post where names were collected.I thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless there is 100% warranted.#Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.What You Can Do Now* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name. I've labeled mine "Fabulous Women on G+".* Once you've added it, I recommend visiting the stream for this circle and browsing through it to see what you find interesting, encouraging, and enlightening. Then, share some love by commenting, +1ing or sharing the posts of your sisters!* Please note, this is a very diverse group of women.  You're likely to see some people in these circles who will see, understand, or experience things differently than you.  They may or may not share your similar interests.  With that in mind, a few suggestions:     -- If you disagree with someone's views, you can very easily remove them from your circle.     -- Please post to public vs to these circles directly.  Each of us has separate preferences on notifications and we want to lift one another up, not bog down notifications.  I hope you all see some increased activity, make some new and inspired connections, and lift one another up as we share our brilliance.Original Post: https://plus.google.com/u/0/117590169633617507930/posts/HHzp7g9aW9t2013-05-08 19:56:31324401632

Dolidh Young (Eileen)499,458*Happy International Women's Day!* To all those lovely ladies out there!!I thought I'd put together a mega-women's circle to share this #WomensDay  These are women that I've circled that have been active this year or I know personally. <3If you've never heard of international women's day, then pop on over to http://www.internationalwomensday.com to get yourself up to speed on what it is and what's going on. The short of it if that it's an international day of celebrating political, social and economic achievements of women, whether it be in the past, present or future.Today, we remember all those important female women who fought for rights, scientists and successful women... But really it's not just there we can stop.. We can remember all those women that have come before... the important ones that we don't necessarily have any more... Mum's, aunties, sisters, partners and friends.Have a great day everyone! It's a fabulous Friday!2013-03-08 13:33:4141217841

It's National Pain Awareness Month.

This month sits very close to home with me and for me, not only as someone living with #ChronicPain but Ambassador for US Pain Foundation as well. Most people aren't aware that conditions, illness, and other forms of trauma can be invisible to others, yet a battling reality for those #Spoonies everyday. Pain is real. Ignorance is real. The stigmas, the faltered relationships, the limitations on some things, the endurance and hope one must have just to get through the day can be staggering to anyone living with chronic pain.

"You don't look sick." You may not have a visible limp, need an assistive device, or the like and pain is still there. We are chronic pain warriors. We are not psychosomatic symptoms. We are real people, battling insurers and the complex healthcare system, friends and family that may not support us,... more »

Lazyboy - Underwear Goes Inside The Pants
Transcription below. 💜

Why is marijuana not legal? Why is marijuana not legal? 
It's a natural plant that grows in the dirt. 
Do you know what's not natural?
80 year old dudes with hard-ons. That's not natural.
But we got pills for that.
We're dedicating all our medical resources to keeping the old guys erect,
but we're putting people in jail for something that grows in the dirt?

You know we have more prescription drugs now.
Every commercial that comes on TV is a prescription drug ad.
I can't watch TV for four minutes without thinking I have five serious diseases.
Like: "Do you ever wake up tired in the morning?"
Oh my god I have this, write this down. Whatever it is, I have it. 
Half the time I don't even know what the commercial is:
people running in fields or flying kites or swimming in the ocean.
I'm like that is the greatest disease ever. How do you get that?
That disease comes with a hot chick and a puppy. 

The schools now: It is all about self-esteem in the schools now.
Build the kids' self-esteem, make them feel good about themselves.
If everybody grows up with high self-esteem, who is going to dance in our strip clubs?
What's going to happen to our porno industry?
These women don't just grown on trees. 
It takes lots of drunk dads missing dance recitals before you decide to blow a goat on the internet for fifty bucks.
And if that disappears, where does that leave me on a Friday night with my new high speed connection?

Masterminds are another word that comes up all the time.
You keep hearing about these terrorists masterminds that get killed in the middle east. 
Terrorists masterminds.
Mastermind is sort of a lofty way to describe what these guys do, don't you think?
They're not masterminds.
"OK, you take bomb, right? And you put in your backpack. And you get on bus and you blow yourself up. Alright?"
"Why do I have to blow myself up? Why can't I just:"
"Who's the fucking mastermind here? Me or you?"

Americans, let's face it: We've been a spoiled country for a long time. 
Do you know what the number one health risk in America is? 
Obesity. They say we're in the middle of an obesity epidemic.
An epidemic like it is polio. Like we'll be telling our grand kids about it one day.
The Great Obesity Epidemic of 2004.
"How'd you get through it grandpa?"
"Oh, it was horrible Johnny, there was cheesecake and pork chops everywhere."

Nobody knows why were getting fatter? Look at our lifestyle.
I'll sit at a drive thru. 
I'll sit there behind fifteen other cars instead of getting up to make the eight foot walk to the totally empty counter.
Everything is mega meal, super sized. Want biggie fries, super sized, want to go large. 
You want to have thirty burgers for a nickel you fat mother fucker. There's room in the back. Take it!
Want a 55 gallon drum of Coke with that? It's only three more cents.

Sometimes you have to suffer a little bit in your youth to motivate yourself to succeed in later life.
Do you think if Bill Gates got laid in high school, do you think there'd be a Microsoft?
Of course not.
You got to spend a long time in your own locker with your underwear shoved up your ass before you start to think,
"You'll see. I'm going to take of the world of computers! I'll show them."

We're in one of the richest countries in the world,
but the minimum wage is lower than it was thirty five years ago.
There are homeless people everywhere.
This homeless guy asked me for money the other day.
I was about to give it to him and then I thought he was going to use it on drugs or alcohol.
And then I thought, that's what I'm going to use it on.
Why am I judging this poor bastard.
People love to judge homeless guys. Like if you give them money they're just going to waste it.
Well, he lives in a box, what do you want him to do? Save it up and buy a wall unit?
Take a little run to the store for a throw rug and a CD rack? He's homeless.
I walked behind this guy the other day. 
A homeless guy asked him for money.
He looks right at the homeless guy and says why don't you go get a job you bum.
People always say that to homeless guys like it is so easy.
This homeless guy was wearing his underwear outside his pants.
Outside his pants. I'm guessing his resume isn't all up to date.
I'm predicting some problems during the interview process.
I'm pretty sure even McDonalds has a "underwear goes inside the pants" policy.
Not that they enforce it really strictly, but technically I'm sure it is on the books.___Well...this is quite genius. Nice share, +Martin Conterez

The Geekdom explodeth all over your stream. There are no words. Thanks so much Charlie!!!

Geekscape 2014 Uber-Mega-Album!!!

This is the big one folks! Over 400 Geekscapes dating back to the first ones from late 2013. You'll find all of the artist information along with them, so please share these and go let the artists know how amazing their work is! 

I'd like to thank +DeviantArt.com for creating a fantastic platform and fueling my daily posts. For those who don't know, I started posting these because I spent so much time searching for appropriate images for my Geek Question of the Day on DeviantArt. I kept finding incredible artwork of all kinds that had either very few views, or even worse, was being shared without attribution.

Thus the Geekscape was born...

As a side note, I want to thank all the folks who have nominated, plussed, and shared images over the last year or so. Without you guys these posts would be nothing!

Here's to a very geeky 2015!

New Tabletop!! It's Forbidden Desert (not sure why it's spelled Dessert in the thumbnail, but you can be sure we're going to never let whoever messed that up live it down), with Felicia Day, Alan Tudyk, and Jon Heder.___Since watching #Tabletop, I discovered lots of new games-some too challenging or complex, others just within my level of geekiness.

This is deplorable, and must be stopped.

As you may know, September is #chronicpain awareness month. I'll say it before, and I'll say it again: you don't have to have to have a visible medical device to prove your condition, illness, or disability. A disability doesn't mean you are moving in a wheelchair. A lack of placard displaying in your car window doesn't denote your living situation, your access to care, your benefits you may/may not receive, economic hardships faced and the brutal fight with the social security disability process that almost guarantees a denial the first time.

That being said, Kanye West had a concert. He forced everyone to stand, obnoxiously stopping the song until a couple remained. One waved a prosthetic limb to show "proof" if you will. The other? Until his bodyguards confirmed that the man was actually in a wheelchair, only... more »

That being said, Kanye West had a concert. He forced everyone to stand, obnoxiously stopping the song until a couple remained. One waved a prosthetic limb to show "proof" if you will. The other? Until his bodyguards confirmed that the man was actually in a wheelchair, only then did he proceed the rest of his song.
---------------------------
Via ABCNews:
“There’s literally two people left,” he said.

“Stand up, stand up, stand up,” the fans chanted.

One of the fans reportedly held up a prosthetic limb, according to The Independent.

Someone else was still sitting.

“This is the longest I’ve had to wait to do a song. ... It’s unbelievable,” West said. “Now, if he’s in a wheelchair, then it’s fine.”

West apparently waited for confirmation from one of his bodyguards -- yes, the fan was in a wheelchair -- before launching back into “Good Life” with no apparent apology.

This month sits very close to home with me and for me, not only as someone living with #ChronicPain but Ambassador for US Pain Foundation as well. Most people aren't aware that conditions, illness, and other forms of trauma can be invisible to others, yet a battling reality for those #Spoonies everyday. Pain is real. Ignorance is real. The stigmas, the faltered relationships, the limitations on some things, the endurance and hope one must have just to get through the day can be staggering to anyone living with chronic pain.

"You don't look sick." You may not have a visible limp, need an assistive device, or the like and pain is still there. We are chronic pain warriors. We are not psychosomatic symptoms. We are real people, battling insurers and the complex healthcare system, friends and family that may not support us,... more »

"You don't look sick." You may not have a visible limp, need an assistive device, or the like and pain is still there. We are chronic pain warriors. We are not psychosomatic symptoms. We are real people, battling insurers and the complex healthcare system, friends and family that may not support us, and even employers that don't provide a way for us.

For myself, I educate myself about so many different diseases, conditions, and trauma. I never assume. I always stand up for proper laws and bills to pass that will help those with chronic pain-contacting members of the proper government, and advocating. I advocate wherever I go. When there is a stereotype, I abolish it and shut it down immediately. I am my best advocate. I speak up for myself and those that might can't.

There are various ways to help, educate, and advocate and stay informed. Contact local lawmakers. Reach out to the chronic pain community. Volunteer. Donate if you can, even if it's time out of your day.

You do not know of anyone's struggle. Pain is real. This community is strong. Together, we can make a difference.

Bow ties are cool.

So, no bow tie? Buy one. Ladies look great in them as well. I say even put a fancy bow tie hair clip in your hair if you want. I have one. You'll never go wrong with a classic.

Tomorrow is National Bow Tie Day. I expect to see your best. Just in case you need to brush up ... Did I mention you get to see inside my closet? #BowTiesAreCool

Probably the most complex concrete form I've seen out there, but worth a try. Beautiful, if written in song I suppose especially with the couplets. Got to love the originality.

This. A hundred times this.

Support Artists - Want more cool stuff to share on social media? Make sure you help give artists the proper credit

I see so much of my friends photos, cartoons, and artwork shared on the web which is a great thing!!  The bad part is when their work is shared and there is no link back to either their site or their profile so more people can find them and thus they are encouraged to make more cool stuff to post.  Worse are those that will post these things as if they were the ones who created it.  And those who shall remain in the pits of hell are those who actually change the image to include their own URL.  

But if I am sharing their work, isn't that good enough.  I am giving them free publicity

No.  Many artists work off commissions or even the little bit of ad dollars they get on their site.  +Nate Fakes has had his work shared by one celeb multiple times on Facebook without linking to his profile or his site.  You know what Nate got out of that.  Nothing.  I had something shared on social media that did include a link back to my profile and in one day it accounted for 1,000 new people liking my work.  That is the power of giving proper attribution.  Which again empowers artists to create more cool stuff.

One thing I do is if I see something shared that doesn't have a link, and it is obvious who the artist is, I will share that in the comments.  Many times the OP will then edit their post to include it but if not, others will see it.

So share away but give the proper attribution and support the arts!!___This. A hundred times this.

Support artists.

COMIC FANS! As you make your way to SDCC remember most of the artist spend more money to be there than they can ever make during the convention. Do yourself a favor and wander over the Illustrators booths and artist alley and discover the visual storytellers behind your favorite comics, games, toys, and cartoons. You'll be connecting with real people not products and who knows you may just find a cool print or original art you can't live without. See you there! Booth 5560 ‪#‎SDCC‬___Support artists.

Life Saving Meds: Help Pass SB 2096 For The #ChronicPain and #Spoonie Community

Ten days are left to pass Senate Bill 2096-An Act Relative to Financial Patient Protection in the state of Massachusetts. This bill would put a cap on copays from which vital meds are often needed, especially in the case of specialty meds where meds are exceeding expensive and the treatment works where others have failed. We cannot deny patients specialty meds and treatments, yet #chronicpain patients are often stuck wondering how to afford their meds even with insurance and other coverage. Meds can cost hundreds, even up to thousands monthly-all without a cap, where one is wondering how to afford them.

AVOIDING OPIOID MISUSE (Part 1)

Chronic pain is complex and challenging both to live with and to treat. The potential mixture of pain, mood and sleep problems, reduced function, interactions with social life, work related issues, and much more, and with not two persons living with pain being alike, is quite a challenge. Even though “pain” should never be the only item to focus on, it is at the core of the problems, and may lead to prescription of opioids. Opioids have risks and benefits, but how do we balance and navigate?
One of the big problems at hand is there – strangely enough – are rather few studies of good quality to guide. In short there is good evidence for the efficacy of opioids on acute pain, but much more doubtful evidence when it comes to long-term use. “Long term” most often means more than 90 days! In a Cochrane review from 2013 it was concluded:

“There is some evidence (very low to moderate quality) for short-term efficacy (for both pain and function) of opioids to treat chronic low back pain compared to placebo. The very few trials that compared opioids to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or antidepressants did not show any differences regarding pain and function. The initiation of a trial of opioids for long-term management should be done with extreme caution, especially after a comprehensive assessment of potential risks. There are no placebo-controlled trials supporting the effectiveness and safety of long-term opioid therapy for treatment of chronic low back pain.”

Now, reviews and guidelines are intended to provide an overview of existing evidence and recommendations in general, but as no two persons living with pain are alike should the treatment be individualised, obviously paying close attention to the general evidence. This individualization must be on both benefits and risks of using opioids.

Indeed there are risks to be aware of, especially the rising prevalence of opioid misuse, abuse, and fatal overdoses. Risks to be assessed and evaluated at an individual level, and held against the potential benefits of opioids treatment, benefits which, according to the Cochrane review and other studies and reviews, must be expected to be rather limited.

Pain does not transits from acute to chronic over night, but rather as a gradually process often taking place between 3 to 12 months after the debut of the pain. Using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI, a technique to detects which centers of the brain are active during specific experiences and stimuli) it has been documented how brain activity for pain in the early phases after an injury or other cause of pain, is limited to regions involved in acute pain, whereas in chronic pain activity is confined to emotion-related circuitry. The brain imaging studies have even been able to demonstrate how these changes gradually take place in the brain as the pain becomes chronic between 3 and 12 months after the injury or disease. This is not the same as saying “the pain is all in your head.” The pain is not a product of imagination; it is a complex process beyond the individual’s control leading to long term or even persisting changes in the brain and nervous system.

In recent years multiple studies have identified persons at higher risk for pain to become chronic. These groups include among other conditions persons with depression or other mood conditions, anxiety, fear, having sleep problems, previous long time pain, and persons who are lonely. It is important to remember, however, that all chronic pain has once been acute pain, and that early reduction of pain has been proven to reduce the risk for pain to become chronic, just as addressing potential risk factors, as those mentioned above, is crucial to reduce the risk for pain to become chronic.

Besides effect on pain opioids also have many other effects including calming effects reducing the burden of anxiety and depression, and even induce sleep. Using side effects of opioids to treat these serious parts of life with chronic pain, with the potential serious risk for misuse and addiction, is obviously not the way to manage the chronic pain complex. Many other treatments both pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical exist. Research has documented that proactively addressing the manageable comorbidities of chronic pain has the potential to improve quality of life and mitigate risk of opioid misuse/abuse.

How to navigate this risk complex and how to use modern technology to do so, will be discussed in “Part 2″ next week
