Not finding any place that will accept dogs, even

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

service ones. Blatantly say on phone that no dogs allowed,even when say,not a pet. Illegal. Can go to human rights but don't have time for that when looking, unless. They can make them give me the apt. Don't take section 8 or person with disabilities either as state working people. Others want 3 months rent up front, rent,security,last month.

Don't have that  kind of money. I just keep looking daily but it looks bleak.

Absentee, Bad Landlord Chris Messina wants me out...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

I got  hit in the side of my head last Wednesday eve, june 22, 2016 with the front door to my building have an apt. renting at. I have a concussion. Let landlord know. Asked that he fix door that hasn't shut in weeks. He sad shuts fine and would get to it in order of priority. Tells me if outside to stand or sit away from it when step is by it!

That is when called Code Enforcement and complained. Guess they called him as door was fixed the end of that day. Three business days later, i received a 60 day notice to vacate the apartment have. Retaliation? You bet! He lives in Schenectady with his mommy and daddy though is about 40. Only time comes to property is to get rent or fix apt on top floor he plans to live in at some point.

When I got injured, I had just swept stairs,halls, as got sick of seeing the dust balls as he never does them,cut the hedges,pulled weeds,painted pillar fell over last year and got two black eyes as landed on my face(told him needed to be painted and he did nothing). I am the only one who brings in the garbage pail and recyclable bins,shuts off lights and lets him know if something happens or if a repair is needed.

Yes it makes perfect sense that i should be the one being thrown out,smirk. Meanwhile i have neighbors down stairs with two pit bulls. one leaps against door daily as pass with my dog. Recently the big brute almost got through a window that had plexiglass in it. half of his body was out trying to get at my elderly dog. Told landlord who didn't return my call. Neighbors down stairs left window bent.

I called animal control as didn't want my dog bit and window was fixed. Pilot light went out in my apartment and I had no heat the first day got cold this past winter. landlord didn't come out and help me until next evening even though had been upstairs for hours. let me freeze. Place is uninsulated so can't shower in winter but have to quickly hand wash at sink.

His father said can't do repairs with me there but can when am gone and then can raise rent. Part of why wanted me out. Rent is $550 and i have section 8. My advocate and lady from Section 8 won't be back until Tuesday. Hope can work with him while I look for a place to give me time. Also would like to hear why he wants me gone.

He had said I should have asked him before put yellow paint on small step and pillars that go to ankle and knee. Also said I needed to move my bike,cart use to walk from by stairs. Yes all of a sudden such an issue. I brought other things up to apartment but that. My head hurts. Anyways, been looking but landlords do't return my calls or emails. Am worried will end up in homeless shelter again with bullying sociopaths, like last time. Made me very symptomatic.

Mayor Shawn Morse recently spoke that Cohoes was on it's way to becoming an 'all American town'. To be an 'All American', it needs to serve all it's citizens,, not just those with good jobs and some money. Some work but are poor. Sadly can't afford to live in nice housing but are decent,law abiding people who are quiet and don't cause trouble.

Due to plans for economic development, Shawn's view was things are improving For some they are. For others it's business as usual. I have sold my jewelry and gently used items at events in the past here until I was bullied by grown women and their gossip They were other vendors. Many in this town are equally mean and do the same thing, even though don't know me and all i do. listen to here say. Fear and then anger permeate this town like a cancer.

It is for these reasons, i didn't pursue getting a vendor license at city hall, but went to other events out of town,write on line, do private sale and ebay. of course not all are like this here. If you want this town to be better than it's inhabitants need an attitude adjustment. 'Idleness is the devil's play ground'. Many here have way too much time on their hands to being taken other people's inventory. Live and let live. mind my biz are great AA slogans that apply to all. I keep to self and ignore them as like gnats. Negative and do nothing with selves.

Side walks need paving and cleaning as do streets and of course lower rents on Remsen to attract business. Making Cohoes a town that wecomes all and not just WHITE people who fit the status quo, would greatly improve it and make it 'All American'. Until that day comes, the poor reputation of Cohoes will remain just as the rude,ignorant,mean people who are here.

Stigma of not disabled but people with disabilities

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

The latter terminology is more empowering as not a label.

Schumer is proposing new bill against discrimination but integration instead. Good luck. Stigma is alive and well.

Boy bullied at school gets punished.

If  different in some way, doesn't stop when an adult. I am ignored, avoided, laughed and gossiped about in a bullying fashion as is many against one. Alone they say nothing. Many bullies were bullied and have mental illnesses themselves. i love me and walk with God. All they have is the Devil. Who should I fear?

'We do not wrestle with flesh and blood but the principalities of darkness'

The Devil is operating in them. I rather be with my dog than with any of them. They stick together as don't know a better way to  live and speak. That is how get attention and feel better about them selves by putting someone else down. Has been this way since came here a year and a half ago.

I write for money online, sell jewelry for private sale, am on ebay selling, am a vendor when is one even can get to and host provides me with chair and table. Also have sold gold and silver to jeweler and antique shops got from estate and yard sales. Am referred to as retarded,slow and nuts. Does that seem like the behavior of a nut?

I think the nut is someone who sits around and runs his or her mouth doing nothing with his life.
I live daily with chronic pain in back and knee and the repercussions of two car accidents where I had concussions. Now  live with several symptoms daily like short attention span,anger issues,anxiety,sadness,lack of motivation,poor organizational skills,trouble focusing and completing a task. Have to push self. I can't bend repeatedly or lift or am in extreme pain.

I have no reliable home care as used agency that sent me incompetent staff. Family and old friends have deserted me. I  have to let things go in my apartment and do them when able. Seldom do I go far except to doctor and therapy appointments(P/T,talk therapy,GP) I wonder how happy you'd be if this was your life?!

How to cope with self in the world

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

We can only create a healthier society by stopping the sick way many of us speak to one another. We are all equal and worthy and God's children. We deserve love and respect just because we are alive and not for what we do which often is never enough as we have been told as children that many things we did were wrong and perhaps even we were bad. Doesn't help when many in society are the same way because of what they came out of. All we can do is stick with supportive,uncritical,loving people and minimize contact with those we don't feel good around. We also need to change the tapes that run in our heads of negative statements some have said to us. Were the words true? If not,rewrite them and move on.

This was a quote from a past post . Felt note worthy of how have been feeling.

Harmony hills is not that harmonious

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

This over-priced housing where the mills used to be on N. Mohawk st., is over-priced and ill-managed. many tenants I hear are unhappy. Complaints go unheard and they are blown off. Typical for people here who missed the class on how to treat people way like to be treated. The deluded ones here who are proud of their little city of horrors, thinks this place is great. i guess if you've lived in filth all your life, you can't smell the stench anymore.

For more on the unharmonious hills, click link below.

Oh, btw, if you don't like what write abut Cohoes and the many meanies and dummies who live here, skip my blog. If care to help me, look for a nice pace in Albany near Guilderland and I'll be gone in a flash. You will need to move me as well. You might try talking to and getting to know a person before bad mouth them. I have met many of you and you are nohing to write home about.

I keep my distance, just like you ignore me as I find you repulsive. 'people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones'..but..YOU throw BOULDERS!! hahhaha. oh yes i am sick and you are so well. you are in fact really really sick and vile. You hate your selves deep down when not hanging with people who say what want to hear. Yes you know what dirt bags you really are. you're ugliness emanates from every orifice.

Since came here, for the most part, never get any praise for art and jewelry, though it sells. How can people encourage others I guess who are so hateful and unhappy in own lives doing what hate if do anything at all.

Why People are mean to certain people...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

I keep to self, do own thing and mnd my business. Since came to Cohoes, a small city in upsate NY, have encountered down right hostility in my direction from complete strangers never had any dealings with. I have the pleasure of hearing daily how 'noone likes her', 'she's crazy i heard', 'retarded'.  I happen to have a high school degree and work from home.

I get paid to write articles online sell on Ebay, sell my jewelry privately, do the occasional vendng at local fairs and flea markets. These people sit o their ever expanding butts and run the gums daily spewing lies and gossip about someone they don't know.

Perhaps how I live is not main stream and they are jealous. i am not married, have no kids and work on own when like. They instead must live in the beds they made and hate it. Are miserable beings. I like and love me and I don't care for them or their ways. When they lauh at me, etal., show how dumb they are.

I walk with my head held hie and do daily, enjoying my life. I find it a blessing these people are not in my life. I am a loner and prefer my dog's and my own company to anyone else's. Below is a link that helps explain why people you don't know and never did anything to may act mean to you.

Housing Discrimination Against People with Disabilities...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

I have been looking to no avail for housing. Generally the ads say that they want a working person. Does that mean seniors and people with disabilities are confined to housing through HUD that will accomodate them? I have several disabilities and have a service animal, dog. Manager said on last apt. called about, that he had to ask the landlord about the dog.

This is totally illegal.I do work part time per diem doing a variety of jobs when work is available. Sold a couple of pieces of my new sterling silver, never worn, jewelry for less than retail, today. Made $33, after debiting what spent for it. I also wrote an article, I hope to sell for an online service.  Will be at Tug boat Alley in Waterford in September.

I want to leave Cohoes as I find that downtown there is many stupid, uneducated, backward, ignorant, mean, angry, dysfunctional people. They like to take their misery out on others. I have had 13 people on a continual basis here make comments about me as walk down the street. I know I have problems but I have seeked therapy and attend support groups as I walk with God.

They are heathens who depend on selves. The are far from perfect and don't see how ridiculous and childish they appear as sit on their fat asses running their mouths, picking on people who are walking alone. I keep to self by choice as saw the way they act and want nothing to do with them. I encountered this stupidity when was a vendor at farmer's market here all summer too.

Every Friday when attended, same people talked crap about me. One was a woman in her sixties selling towels and things from foreign countries with her cronies. Event was a supposed to be handmade by crafters and artists. Since she and others, polluted the event, I sold whatever too along with my handmade jewelry and art prints.

There is plenty of abundance in the world and opportunity. There is no excuse to act this way and be jealous of another's success. I always sold there making between $50-100/week. I don't go to events here anymore as want nothing to do with them. I attend classier shows with nicer people.

Anyway..when look for housing, they don't take programs,including section 8 also which have. Only places that take it are in awful areas.  The nicer apartments want  $800 for a one bed room which is higher than can go with section 8. Says can look up to $700. So here I continue to live, hearing how my neighbors have to live near a 'lunatic' and the like.

It is unsettling. I feel like saying something but am outnumbered and best to just keep walking as do, doing what have to daily. Can't do anything unless put hands on me. So I wait and pray can get something soon.

More on Bullies...

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

Bullies in Cohoes,NY schools and internet. Can see link below. Is sad but these kids learn close to the tree as many of their parents operate the same way to deflect attention to themselves. It doesn't stop n school. Plenty of adult bullying here. As said Cohoes is not a nice place to live. 

Also goes on in senior housing, assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

Christina Grimmie from the Voice, dead at 22

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

Se was shot and killed after an auto graph signing, after a concert she gave in Orlando Florida last night. She was shot several times and succumbed to her injuries. How sad, is all I can say. She was very talented. Chris sang and played piano. She hit the high notes and held them. She was a beautiful young lady.

She was a spokeswoman for the show in the wardrobe dept. as helped dress each contestant. Last season she had competed and got third place. God Bless Chris. You will be missed. Here's a video of her singing a Drake song, 'I'm coming Home'. Peace.

Tips on Coping with a mild TBI

spam deleted. Thanks! 'here's to your health!'

As have shared in past, I live with the after effects of a head injury from a car accident several years ago. With it, has come emotional challenges as well.  I have at times feelings of fear being out with this. Also get frustrated when making decisions. Feel sad as there are limitations on how much can do in a day, how quickly do them and so on. Also get stressed as live with service dog and cope with this mostly on own.

I found an article on a web site on daily coping tips for persons living with this as well for care givers who care for us so understand us better. Here's the link  I just want to say to those of you out there, I find doing something daily helpful. Ex. am off to see my therapist today speak to her about how am doing.

 Many people are dealing with concussions and it is in the news now, especially with returning service men coming back with brain injuries and the movie 'Concussion' bringing to light sports injuries. Anything that can help people get better and accept their condition and have some sort of a life is good.

One is not as was. I just make lemonade from lemons given. Take care.
