Loose current or what?

Hey fellow MeFites! I have a question about nerve activity in the body. I'm 19 years old and I was watching a newer 2003 series The Twilight Zone episode where a guy got struck by lightning and had tons of excess electricity going through his body. The doctors were able to release some of the electricity from his body through some medical device. [more inside]

So many options . . .

I live and work in midtown Manhattan and was walking home from work today when I was stopped by a woman. I'd guess she was somewhere between 50 and 70 - yes, I'm terrible at estimating age. She was dressed well and conservatively. She told me I reminded her of someone she used to know, that she lived nearby, and wondered if I'd like to get lunch or dinner with her sometime later during the week. [more inside]

Mental Swiss-Army Knife (in a Moleskine)

I have a graph-ruled Moleskine that is begging to be turned into a compendium of obscure, fascinating, and perhaps occasionally useful reference material. Some of the things I want to put in there are Rubik's Cube algorithms, keys to reading non-Latin alphabets, some simple math formulas (Trachtenberg math, e.g.), rules of thumb for estimating distance/altitude, and whatever else. I'm imagining the user would bust it out of his/her bag and use the knowledge within to solve a wide range of MacGyver/James Bond/bar bet problems. An intellectual "Swiss army knife", if you will. Any and all ideas are welcome!

How do I find off-the-books therapy?

A while ago, I asked about the implications of accessing mental health care and possibly having a diagnosis tied to me. From the answers, I've concluded that in my specific situation, any help I need will have to be "off the record." Because that's my decision, this has made it hard to obtain care.
