To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate?

Are we injecting massive amounts of neurotoxins into our babies? We are. Time to become more informed.

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate?

Getting back to writing has been a journey. I started my online adventure in October of 2016—about two years ago. I needed to make a living somehow. I had finished my degree in 2014 but found that my lengthy stay in our collegiate system had hurt me. I had not counted on many things: age; illness; and the fact that advanced degrees were needed to make it in today’s world.

The “research” bug bit me in childhood. It was my dream—as a child—to gain a position in the genetic research of cancer. I currently have some background in the language of the body—at least enough to understand some of what is out there. I’ve forgotten much of what I knew, but retain those distant memories enough so information that does not blast through can be measured through context.

I’ve had misadventures in medicine thrust upon me in the last two years. Such things made me curious as…

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford

  Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Thank you. You are my hero. I remember thinking I was a hero once. It was a long time ago. A powerful man tried to do that thing to me. I was only sixteen. I reported him within an hour after the event but was brushed off. Years later, I would learn... Continue Reading →

Murder By Medicine

Believe it or not, after I thought of this title, I realized it was catchy and did a search on it to see if it has been used elsewhere. It has. A doctor left her practice because she could no longer stand the fact that many people are dying because of medications that are being given. Her... Continue Reading →

Devilment in The North End

I was barely seventeen. Somehow I envisioned the world as pristine outside of the turmoil of my childhood. My trust was implicit. I had met a few undesirables but had maintained this view of the world. For four years, I had escaped the brutality of my home through drugs. I woke one morning—kidneys screaming—a wisp of myself—ribs... Continue Reading →

A Touch of the Past

The Wild Ride

It’s been a while. Stories have swirled through my head but never made it to the keyboard. It’s as if the virgin territory of my new study forebodes me. It’s time to break this cherry.

Light a cigarette, Joyce, and get going.

I was nineteen, and I was in love—not with a man, but with a voice. Lou Rawls owned it. It was his, but I embraced it.

Play him as I write.

When he came to Boston, I took every chance I could to listen to him. It was in a dark, dusty little joint in the underbelly of a building on Boylston Street. It was small and cozy. Probably not the venue for which he was hoping.

I had been able to get there for a few nights, but funds were running tight.

Wait—the music stopped:

Ahhhh—back to the story.

There was only one way I’d…
