Stand-up introduction

Hello everyone. I just want to start off by saying that I'm very uncomfortable and despite that I'm going to do my best to entertain you.

Where do I begin? Well, my name's Cat, Cat Vonnegut is my pen name, and I don't want to think I'm a narcissist, but (and nothing good is followed by a but, is it?) I don't want to think I'm a narcissist, but I'm also asking for you to give me your attention right now.

Am I neglected or just needy? How does one tell the difference between the two? Well, if you've come here for answers, I have good news, I don't have them. Why is that good news? You're not alone in being dumb and lost for answers. We're dumb together. They say misery loves company.... well, you're welcome. I came along for the misery ride before you even knew we were in the same bandwagon.

All aboard the depression express! I kid.

Anyone else have anxiety? or generalized anxiety disorder... or GAD as we call it, because we like to shorten things, and all the other alphabet soup diagnoses; ptsd, cptsd, ocd... or cdo as they prefer it. I kid.

Some days I really don't know if I'm artistic or autistic and apparently I could be both. The doctors don't really know either, something about needing to test me for how much money is left in my wallet. I kid, but diagnoses are expensive and a bit elitist, don't you think?

Think of it like this, having depression or anxiety and even having a therapist, that's like... having an associates degree in being mentally ill.

When diagnoses start getting more specific like... manic depression, generalized anxiety disorder (or GAD as mentioned earlier), maybe even agoraphobia... or the more complicated diagnoses like dipolar disorder, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder, etc. I think those are all bachelor's degrees in being mentally ill.

Are you autistic? Well, congrats on your masters! I hear it's like a couple grand just for "rule it out" testing. Correct me if I'm wrong. All I know is my medical bills are like my piles of dirty laundry or dishes, always stacking up.

Truth be told we're all a little messed up and that's ok. I'm just happy to not be alone, laughing at all of life's misfortunes, on this floating rock in space.
Thanks for listening to me ramble, everyone.

*Most of my materials are in the "rough draft" stage, please excuse any typos, grammatical errors, etc.

Maybe THIS is why last night I was so angry at everyone who had ever done anything to me.

Canes & Brains

I was looking everywhere for my cane one afternoon. Couldn't figure out where the heck I put the thing. My partner comes home and goes to get a water from the fridge and there it is, hanging up on the shelf, literally just chillin.

Toothpaste Follies

Today I went to get my blood drawn. I take off my hoodie and feel something tubular and squishy in the pocket. So I reach in and what do I find? When I burshed my teeth I put the toothpaste in my pocket afterwords because THAT is where the toothpaste goes, my friend!🤣😂🤪

Can we post YouTube vids of animals on here or does that go against community policy? Went down the rabbit hole today and the cuteness and humor must be shared! #TheMighty #MightyTogether #Rules #Animals #Humor #DistractMe #MakeMeLaugh

Snap benefits

I just dropped my salad on the ground.
Anyone know who I can contact to see if the US government will give me a coupon for my daily allotment for nutrients because that $5.00 bag of lettuce is not consumable? Or should I just eat the expired food left at pantries after I finally manage my anxiety enough to stop throwing up to go there?
(This is in jest… sort of.)
