Physical Therapy Etiquette Shouldn’t Tie You Into Knots (or “How To Love Your PT”)

October 19, 2016

As my long time readers know,  I occasionally use the Ehell blog as a platform for public service announcements based upon my own experiences.   May is EHell’s own Melanoma Awareness Month after I had been diagnosed with malignant melanoma and underwent a 4 hour operation and biopsy (all clear!) seven years ago.  February is the […]

Stop Being Exploited By Your So-Called “Friend” and Learn To Say “No, Thank You”

October 18, 2016

I have a friend who keeps having “parties” that revolve around buying overpriced clothing.  Same product line and consultant each time.  The clothes cost about 4X what similar items cost at a department store.  Nothing is inexpensive.  The consultant gets a 30% commission and the hostess gets free and discounted merchandise.

Dueling Restaurant Fundraisers

October 10, 2016

I volunteer for a small nonprofit animal-related organization that is run solely by volunteers.  A few months ago the organization was literally broke and I made some suggestions for different fundraising ideas. The president of the organization made me part of the fundraising committee and sent me copies of the tax forms, etc. so I […]

Words In The Wind

October 6, 2016

I share the name of a character in a popular kid’s TV show, and it’s worth noting that I have never watched this show, and don’t really like it. Any way, when I was in elementary school, I got teased for my name, and was just bullied in general. Now I’m in high school, and […]
