Brohugs, Josh. That sucks.

Mars, there's something going around. Fight it! (I'm fighting it too).

Thanks! I called in sick today, which feels shitty since I don't feel completely laid-up, but given how I feel worse than yesterday, and by the end of the day yesterday my body was fighting to finish the last hours of work... I think it would have been detrimental to getting over this thing if I worked today.

My good friend's mother in law passed away this morning from Colon Cancer. She was diagnosed around Christmas and her illness has been so fast and devastating and I am so sad for my friend and her husband. They are so broke, I sent her some money just so they can put gas in their car. I am happy that I am able to help right now.

My grandfather, who also has colon cancer, had a fall on Monday night and has had his next chemo treatment postponed due to a mild bladder infection. He's generally been extra weak and tired and I'm concerned about him. We got his diagnosis almost exactly a year ago and I'm freaking out now. Also missing dad a lot today. So generally things are crappy.

Josh I am so sorry that happened to you, that sucks so bad. Mars, feel better soon. I'm hoping you can enjoy your time off.

Pretty much two weeks of sleeplessness. Tonight was a new low: 11:10pm to 2:48am. I just want to sleep again :(

about a year and a half ago an ex-friend assaulted a very dear friend of mine and nearly killed him. They live in the same squat (now co-op) and my friend has had to face seeing that psycho every day. The case finally went to trial, several of my friends were picked apart and made to look horrible as witnesses and the forker got acquitted (hmm coincidence that he had a pricy lawyer paid for by mommy and daddy). I am alternately heartbroken and livid.

just an update for anyone worried/interested: after a horror day of organising travel, I got back to Berlin around 5am this morning. two hospitals later I'm now treated+medicated, I dropped by work to solve an issue, then I came hope to take an epic nap. besides feeling like someone punched me in the leg, I'm feeling completely a-okay :)

My husband fainted 3 times this morning. I woke up because I heard something fall and thought it was the dog. I came in, and my husband was struggling to get up in the bathroom, so I tried to help him and he passed out, hitting his head, and gashing a 3 inch deep wound in his forehead. Then he came to and tried to get up again and then collapsed on me, and just was babbling incoherently. I freaked out and called 911.

I have never seen him sick or weak, and it was so scary to realize that if he passes out, I physically cannot lift him or help get him to safety.

He is feeling better now, but I am still worried.

Wow, Tofulish that is so scary! I'm glad he's feeling better, but I can totally understand you still being worried. I'd probably be freaking out. Did they figure out what caused it?

We think it was dehydration from the cold/flu he's been dealing with. I felt so much better after they confirmed he wasn't having a stroke or a heart attack or otherwise dying. It freaks me out that one day he will die and I'll be holding his body like that when he goes. I couldn't move him an inch - I was trying to drag him him but I couldn't budge him at all. I really thought he might be dying.

Leela of course slept peacefully through all of it, including 8 giant firefighters and EMS guys tromping up and down our stairs. The guys were supernice and reassuring.

I'm so glad to hear he's okay. And at least Leela slept through it - it would have sucked if she'd been freaking out on top of you trying to deal with everything <3

Tofulish I hope he is OK :-)

We have had a hard few days with Mum. A few days ago something snapped, she's now having paranoid delusions. Even though she has never broken a law in her life she is cowering in bed convinced the police are coming to arrest her, that she has ruined everyone's life, that she is on TV and that her laptop/tv are sending her messages. The doctor was here yesterday, the MH community nurse came today and thinks she has psychotic depression, the crisis team are coming tomorrow. I think she will be sectioned before the weekend is over.

Yeah, I was pretty much useless and freaking out. I always thought I'd be calm and collected in an emergency, but turns out, not so much. I was a crying, screaming, mess. My husband is just so big and strong, I never think of him as being vulnerable to anything. Its been 7 years and I've never seen him not be able to handle something. He's had bad things happen, but is always able to advocate for himself and figure things out. Seeing him helpless freaked me out.

Tofulish I'm sorry to hear you had such a scare. Glad B is more or less okay.

Holy god, Tofulish! I just came in here to bisque about my back playing me up but I'll STFU now except to say A. I'm glad he's okay, and B. I know how scary it is when the big strong man you're used to being...well, big and strong, suddenly isn't, and there's little you can do about it. Anyway, I'm sure everything will be fine, but you know where to find me if you need an ear!

Thank you. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we have reached a point where she will get some help whether she wants it or not

Thankyou. The visit with the crisis team went well. It was decided that treatment at home is the best option. More staff will be out tomorrow and careworks/specialists are being assigned and booked on Monday. Things seem a little brighter now

Oh Star, I am so happy that you got good news and have a plan for treatment! Its so scary when your mother really isn't acting like herself.

Sending you and your family many good thoughts.

And thank you all for the kind thoughts for me and B! <3 the PPK!

I work in Aintree and have to walk past the racecourse everyday to get to work. I hate the place.

Tofulish, that is scary stuff. I've passed out a couple times in the shower and it is petrifying. My grandmother was always freaked out near the end of my grandfather's life because he fell once in the shower (Parkinson's) and she had to call the fire department to get him out. Hope he is on the way to recovery from the flu now.

Today just kind of sucked, even though good stuff happened. Every minor issue that came up made me more and more pissed off and sad. I need a vacation and a bunch of sleep.

I'm not sure where to post this (almost posted it in the relationship thread) and I don't know that it's worthy of it's own thread; my roommate has a huge dog that weighs more than me and she doesn't exercise it.

She lets it into the backyard in the morning and when she comes home at night and before she goes to bed. I think not getting exercise is frustrating the dog, and is one of the reasons why he acts out. My fiance is afraid of the dog and is a lot smaller than the dog so that doesn't help either.

She doesn't pick up the dog shiitake in the backyard. One of the reasons why I chose this house was because there's a killer backyard but now it's turned into a dog toilet. She also never bathes or brushes the guy so he stinks pretty bad and there's dog hair EVERYWHERE.

The dog is a Rottweiler and if you've heard one bark, you know it's pretty loud. When the dog is outside it'll bark until it wants to come back in but sometimes she lets it bark for ten or twenty minutes, and sometime it's pretty late at night or very early in the morning.

So my plan is to say something to my roommate about cleaning up the backyard, which isn't a big deal for me to do. I haven't said anything about it in the 3 months we've been here because I frankly hadn't noticed or used the backyard. But! I don't know if it's inappropriate for me to talk to her about walking the dog. I talked to my neighbor and he was like "for the love of god yes!!" My bf also thinks I should, but I really don't want her to think I don't like her or that I'm trying to control her or whatever.

Are you moving out soon? I think she's being pretty irresponsible as a cotenant, and you'd be within your rights to mention it. Why do you think that she would think that you don't like her? Is she very sensitive?

I know a lot of people don't think its necessary to walk their dogs and just put them out in the yard. I don't think its a great idea, but I think reasonable people in the US do differ on it - so maybe couch it as "I think "X" could use more exercise than he is getting. Maybe a walk would help? Or throwing some balls to him and letting him play fetch?" I say that only because it was a bone of contention for me and my partner - I grew up in a household where the dogs get at least 2 walks a day and his just put the dog into the yard and never walked them. I asked our vet to settle our debate, and he said most people in our area really don't walk their dogs. And as I walk Cuddles, I see lots of people walking their tiny dogs, while the bigger dogs just seem to be eternally confined to the backyard, because they're not easy to control on the leash (our neighbors have a huge hound mix and a smaller pitt mix who never are walked ever and the hound howls loudly whenever he's put out. They always remark on how good Cuddles is and I say its because I walk him, but they don't seem to make the connection). Not that it makes it right, of course, and I feel sad for the big dogs, but its at least a matter on which people can differ.

I'm not planning on moving out, though I could. She seems very depressed, and because of that I think she is sensitive. I moved in with her because she trains horses at a barn that my friend stables his horse at. She moved to the area knew no one. I've offered to go out with her in a variety of ways and she always turns me down. She goes in her room when she comes home and just lays in bed with the dog watching Netflix. She's mentioned being very stressed and her eating has turned a complete 180 from lean protein and veg to lots of junk food and take out and she gave up on her plan of doing a fitness physique competition.
