My poor, lovely sister fell down a couple of stairs and broke her right leg. She's understandably frustrated and unhappy. I don't like hearing her cry.

I have a migraine. I want to throw up then pass out. But I have to go to Shorty's band concert.

torque, thank you! Seems like there are so many evil cockatiels in the world, my cockatiel included but I love them!

Lavawitch, Conrad hates the other birds and wants nothing to do with them and Green Bean tries to be a bully but most of the other birds just ignore him. I think the biggest bully of them all though is my budgie Nemo! She is such a trouble maker.

8ball, that’s awful! Hope she feels better soon and has a quick recovery.

Every time I talk to my mom or my sister on the phone I want to cry because I feel sad that I don't live closer to them. i know I need to keep my job for at least a year to have any chance of finding another one, but this is starting to seem like the longest year of my life!

it's one-sixth over! and the summer always goes by so fast; it won't be as long as it seems. but it makes me sad to think of you leaving new york now that i've met you. *totally selfish pout*

You could try to find another job without leaving your current. People move for family reasons all the time, so you could spin it, especially if you'd have good references.

IJDI - I am with you and my husband flip flops on his willingness to move. I've told him before that I struggle with staying here even though I like it, I just wish I was closer to my family. At one point, he was 'let's move!', then the next week, he said he didn't want to move. It is hard for me because if it wasn't for my family, I wouldn't what to move but what happens if we do and I hate it? Plus we'd both need to work from home if we moved unless we possibly moved to northern california which is still an 8 hour drive or so.

I can't go visit right now because I'm crazy broke and just started a new job. By the time I have enough money to visit, school will have started again and then it'll be impossible to go because of that. If I wait til Thanksgiving or Christmas, then that's even more money plus my family has this magic knack for generating immense holiday drama even when nobody is terminally ill. So yeah. I'm not sure how that is going to get resolved but I'm trying to work it out because the idea that I could literally never see my mother in person again is slaying me.

Today hasn't been as bad overall, I kept busy with work. Tomorrow is my day home with the kids and it is going to be brutal. I keep looking at them and thinking about how they have never met her in person, and how impossible she is to describe to someone who hasn't met her.

I'm so sorry, coldandsleepy. I really hope you find a way to see your mom.

I'm so stressed out over work right now and have worked driven myself into a panic mode. I've been out of work for 4 hours and I cannot calm myself down. I went to the gym for almost an hour to try to burn off some of my tension, but if anything, I think it just got me even more worked up. Ugh.

That sucks! I'm sorry. I miss my parents so much, even though I've been living in a different province and/or country from them for more than 13 years. Family are so important. At least start looking? You've worked so hard to get to where you are career wise and you deserve great opportunities but also happy non-work times.

I'm stuck doing unpaid overtime on Friday night because we have people here doing a simulated audit of the company and they will not forking go home, so I'm here babysitting. This sucks a lot right now.

Woke up to multiple sms's from my family saying grandma's in ER (and my sister was in the ambulance with her to get there). Radio silence since. Uuuuufghsdfj sdfjgsljkfd.

Once again, my sister is there being the adult/compassionate one. Which is awesome -- I would much rather my sister hold my hand through the hospital than my mom. BUt ugs gsjfsj, I wish my mom could handle herself better at times like this. And treat my grandma better during all the times in between.

(So far, 2013 is shaping up to be just as bad for my grandma's as 2011.)

I have some updates now. Grandma's staying at the hospital for a couple of days. The dr. on call finally (!) realized that the fluid which has been accumulating for more than a year (thus making her more of a balloon-grandma than a grandma-grandma, since failing hearts are shiitake at removing waste and her overall toxicity is through the roof because of it) is a problem, and they're working on draining her, which, if it works, should give the rest of her organs a bit of a break. Mom said they'd been through several bags of drained fluid already. And that tomorrow, she's going to start checking out nursing homes on "the list" so grandma can get better treatment for a couple of days or weeks or whatever she thinks she needs once the hospital discharges her.

There were more details which make me really sad. I am still not sure whether to hope she pulls through and is ok for awhile (but, I mean, she couldn't shower or brush her teeth or anything, and grandma HATES not being clean, to the point where she used to brush her teeth 4x per day sometimes), or that she's able to drift off peacefully, with someone holding her hand. (I wish I were there to hold her hand now. I'll be there in 2 weeks. But 2 weeks is a lot for her to suffer through right now.) I don't know. My sister and I always, always worry that she doesn't ever feel loved enough, so it seems mean to hope anything right now except that she feel totally, thoroughly surrounded by love.

Moo.

Aw lutin. That's so hard. I don't know what to hope for you either (just that they can find some way to ease her suffering quickly in the short term I guess) but she & you will be in my thoughts.

Many good thoughts lutin!

And it has always sounded to me like you do a great job making sure your grandmother feels loved. You post about her with so much warmth and care. I am glad you're going to be over there with her soon. <3

It's not enough, I guess, to just FEEL like my life is falling apart. One of my teeth just literally broke in half.

(It's not a huge surprise, I've needed a root canal on it for probably a decade. I didn't get it done when I had all the other dental work done a few years ago because it has to be done by a specialist and then I lost my dental insurance and I just genuinely couldn't afford to get it fixed. And I still can't.)
