News is dead. We are being turned into ignorant fools.
But, Kim Basinger doesn’t approve of daughter Ireland Baldwin’s latest Instagram photos

I worked at a nursing home for a summer, it is very hard, sometimes emotionally draining work. We had a lady there who woke up every morning asking for her husband that had been dead for some 15 years, and we had to tell her every morning. But the ones that were lucid were mostly amazing people
I have the utmost respect for nursery home workers.
Really hope they get their demands
It's incredibly physically and emotionally draining work. I had girlfriend who worked at one; she got close with many of the residents and then a bunch of them died and she relapsed on her alcoholism. Cool and good times.
Most of the people working there were not super well trained. CNAs, I think. It was a month long course that the facility paid for if you agreed to work for them for a set period of time. Really high turn over because it was hard, gross, emotionally difficult, and poorly paid. Some good people that went above and beyond for the residents, but not compensated, trained, staffed, or supported nearly enough to adequately take care of people.
I'm stockpiling some opiates for when I can't take care of myself.

You can say that about pretty much anything.

Diapers is a hurtful and derogatory term. Use "briefs" instead.
Briefs is already the word for form-fitting legless underwear, no? I agree with Mister Yuck, it's a euphemism and helps nothing.
We could try to steer society towards a healthier approach to aging (and dying) so that it's not a humiliation.

hey just out of curiosity, what political party goes the governor of CT belong to?
The republicans are an alliance between extractive industry capital and the petite bourgeoisie; the democrats are an alliance between finance/knowledge industry capital and the PMC. There is no labor party in American politics.

I was a CNA in a nursing home for 4 years before becoming a nurse and working in a hospital, and because of this experience I will be dying by my own hand when the time comes. There is no such thing as quality of life when you've deteriorated to the point of needing 24/7 nursing care. Life is not precious and should be abandoned when it becomes miserable.
The thing is if you end up that way you are already dead.
I used to think I would huff some nitrogen when I started to go but these days I realise it doesn't really matter. I won't know who I was or where I am or who anyone is or anything. Just a sack of piss and shit propped up in a chair drinking thickened koolaid.
