Being Undersexed in an Oversexed Society

"I'm neither one thing nor the other particularly. I am fortunate in that I am apparently reasonably undersexed or something...I've never said that I was gay and I've never said that I wasn't...what I'm trying to say is that I am a person before I am anything else...."
--Edward Gorey

I identify as straight because I find men more appealing. If I were to have sex with anyone, it would be a man. I have never had sex with a woman, nor do I wish to. It isn't that I find the idea disgusting, simply that it holds very little appeal for me personally.

The fact is, however, that although I can look at men and find them appealing, I have zero desire for sexual contact. Even when I was younger and comparatively randier, I only had sex as a way of paying for companionship. I never desired sex for the sake of sex. There were moments that one might identify as pleasurable but those were brief and in the long run seemed quite a waste of time. I'd rather read a good book.

During my lifetime I've had four sexual partners, which many people might consider shockingly low for a person of my age. I have an adult son, who was born when I was nineteen. The relationship with his father, my high school sweetheart, lasted for eight years. Part of the break-up may have been due to my disinterest in sexual contact. I would engage in it, but it simply did nothing for me. My ex was more interested in sex than he was in companionship and after the divorce he had very little to do with either our son or me.

At the behest of friends I tried dating again three other times. One of these relationships lasted for four years and I was not sorry when it ended. The others lasted for nine months and a year respectively and I was more relieved than hurt when they were done. I have not been in a relationship (or had sexual contact) in ten years, and I don't intend to ever do so again. It was supposed to make me happy, but it doesn't. So why waste my time?

I make a much better companion when not feeling the need to engage in "wifely duties." I would much rather have dinner guests than bedtime buddies. I realize in this oversexed society, that makes me quite the oddball. But in case you hadn't noticed, I'm not exactly normal anyway! writing for love or money

Report finished and cookies ready. Life is better!

Maybe some fresh baked chocolate chip cookies would cheer my mood and help me finish this drag of a report I'm working on. Worth a try!

Fibromyalgia and Me

I don't experience severe pain generally the way some people do, just a chronic, all-over, low-grade ache that leaves me feeling tired most of the time. Some days its worse than others. The pain itself is never unbearable but being in pain at any degree all the time does contribute to depression. Sometimes I wonder if it's really worth it to keep trying. Also, the brain fog sucks and becomes worse around PMS time. 

What a difference eating lunch makes. I was feeling pretty rubbery in the knees and shaky-handed. Now I'm ready to get up and get stabbin'!

Blaaarrrghhh!!!! I'm hoping my ulcer isn't making an unwanted return to my life and digestion. My stomach has been bothering me a lot lately

Bring Manufacturing Power Back to the U.S.

RT @abcnews Cadmium, Lead Found in Children's Drinking Glasses
And, of course, the glasses were made in China. So not a surprise.

I am not hating on the Chinese people as an entity. But the government is corrupt and there are very few controls on manufacturing. Human and animal rights are both close to non-existent. Dogs and cats are skinned alive and used for fur. Toxic substances are allowed in food and items such as the drinking glasses named above in obscene amounts.
It is not like the United States is perfect. The fact that monosodium glutamate, a substance which causes moderate to severe intolerance reactions in many people is generally regarded as safe because its putting money into someone's pocket attests to that. But there are a modicum of controls and protective laws in place. 
Why does the U.S. continue to import so many items from China rather than manufacturing them ourselves? It seriously cannot be that much cheaper. We should be buying such items from U.S. companies. We need to begin manufacturing our own goods again. Not only would this allow for better quality control but it would create jobs, which would boost the economy.
We as consumers can also take the small step of trying to be sure that the majority of goods that we buy are grown or made in the United States. We can also take the further step of supporting our own communities by buying locally produced and manufactured goods as much as possible. This cuts down on shipping costs which reduces air pollution and boosts the local economy.
I know that this is supposed to be a horror fiction blog, but our current economy is a huge horror story.

On the other hand, I hate sciatica. And now I have to wear reading glasses too. Depends are probably next. Getting old sucks!

Although it will make me look less gory and evil, I have to confess. I love cats. My cat is so fluffy and sweet.

Need to take an online test today.

I am pondering annoying body functions. Belching, coughing, farting, and sneezing all serve a purpose. What purpose do hiccups serve?

Hate how our medical system/government does people. Uncle probably has to go into nursing home, aunt stands to lose everything, no joke.

Off to the hospital. Not to become a patient, to visit someone who is. And to rob the blood bank.

Preparing to crawl forth from my coffin. The sun! The sun! Ahhhhhh!
