I have been a total raging bisque all day and finally completely lost it. Mom and I had huge meltdowns and cried all the tears we haven't cried lately.

I'm taking tomorrow off work. I needed this bad, but no way am I going to be mentally ok enough in another 6 hours to go anywhere.

Mom and I are going to plan to do something tomorrow, and for now, watch RuPaul.

Maybe that's all the best thing about today too. I sort of feel like a volcano that has erupted. (We learn how to identify with rocks in geology school. Little known fact.)

Lavawitch, I'm so sorry. Sometimes a meltdown can be very cathartic (not sure if thats the right word). I hope you and your Mom do something lovely today.

This is such a hard time, and you absolutely need to let that volcano erupt now and then. I hope you are able to get (some of) the rest you need, and that tomorrow will be a better day. XOXO

Thanks. Today was actually pretty ok. But I think yesterday had to be epically awful for that to happen.

I know you can relate with all this. <3

We are about to eat nachos and watch cooking shows.

Yes, MUCH better than holding it all in. Let yourself feel it, and when it all feels too much, go do something happy and play with Molly.

Nachos and cooking shows seem like an eminently sensible plan. I hope you enjoyed them!

This week has been sheer hell.

I start out fine this morning. I put makeup on, tied a pretty scarf in my hair, had my pistachio smoothie, was planning an afterwork nordstrom shopping spree with birthday aunt gift cards, and then traffic troubles started. 95 was all blocked, so I had to detour,t he. The detour was blocked so I had to detour around the detour which took me right through the forking hospital campus.

So, I had a total meltdown. Couldn't drive, had to pull over, took klonopin, tried to calm down enough to drive for over 30 minutes, realized I'd never make it work or stop crying, called work, didn't go in, sat another 45 minutes in a fried chicken parking lot before driving home.

This week is just the worst.

I hope work is not too upset with me. I've always been reliable in the past.

Tripped right outside work, stubbing my toe and obliterating my $5 coffee drink.

On the bright side, very little of it got on me/my clothing, and this was right in front of some people who were about to power wash the sidewalk, so.... all evidence has been erased.

Now I just need to eliminate the witnesses.

This was kind of a best/worst thing, but I realized why I am having so much trouble coming up with what I want to do for my birthday. I'm turning 30 next week and should be planning a blowout. But not only are a lot of my friends not around, but I can't throw a big BBQ like we did for my husband's 30th two years ago, because it was a lot of family and none of my family would be able to come. Dad is gone, grandparents haven't been well/willing to do things, my aunt and uncle can't do much with their current health issues, I don't have significant relationships with my half sisters. That basically leaves me with my half brother but he probably wouldn't be able to get away since he works most weekends.

It was kind of a relief to come to this conclusion, but left me in a terrible place most of the day.

The pistachio smoothie sounds amazing! I'm sorry everything after that was so sucky.

I was looking at rescue dogs online today (mistake) and one organization is posting a dog not in their care who is going to be euthanized Monday if they can't find a home. She is a senior and sounds pretty swell but can't be in a home with kids. I can't do anything and it's been bothering me all day :(

I've been feeling off-colour since yesterday. This morning I had diarrhoea and a headache (I hardly ever get those) and now I've started throwing up and am so cold I've had to put a sweater and the central heating on, even though my temperature is only on the low side of normal. It's a bank holiday weekend, so I don't have to go to work tomorrow but there's a lot of stuff I need to do. And I thought there was an "I'm sick" thread I could post this whinging in, but then I couldn't find one. Booo!

My brother is a right wing racist homophobe and transphobe. We were raised, with my sister (who shares the same views that I do), by the same people in the same house at the same time. I don't know how to reconcile these things.

Saying goodbye to the Most Important Place to me, T.'s family cottage. It's complicated. Growing up with such absent-but-abusive parents, T.'s family took me in when I was a teenager and so many of my first memories of what it's like to really have a family were there. It's been such an important place for working on coping with severe anxiety disorders and depression. It's been a reliable calendar event each year that I can build my life around. And at the end of the month, it's gone.

Then after that, I come home to my parents at our place, when I'm already feeling very vulnerable. I asked my brother to catsit for us, but he doesn't drive so my parents brought him to our place. They overstayed their welcome and spewed their negativity all over us. We're weary from a 6 hour drive and just want to be alone, and they just hang out there. My mother and father are divorced, but my mother sees that my father has some cash and she has reeled him in and made him quit his job and support her with his inheritance. He's basically a shell of a human being when she is in his life. I don't love my family at all, and all I wanted to do was bask in the glory of a weekend with my in-laws (my REAL family) but they had to bring me back down to earth and remind me where I REALLY come from.

I want to be estranged from them - I am better without their negativity and thinly-veiled contempt for me - but in order to have a relationship with my brother, I have to still see them.

Sorry for the incoherent rant.

I am approaching livid and need some talking down.

11 days ago my oldest went through a fish tank (goofing around) and sliced his knee. He went to urgent care and they stitched him up but did not do x-rays or any thing to check if he had ruptured the fluid disk above is patella. They did no pain management, only stitches and sent him on his way. The stitches looked like battlefield stitches, which a lot of puckering and some odd gaps. Just a pretty terrible job.


Later that night we take him back to the ER. Xrays show no broken bones. And the ER doc just says that it is his anxiety meds that are making him hurt so badly.

Today he goes in to get his stitches out and they tell him it is not healing well. In fact it is healing like it was broken and not set. And that maybe he actually did rupture something and why didn't he get that looked at. They are telling him he may need surgery.

I don't know what to do right now, aside from getting him to get his medical records from both records. I understands mistakes happen, and we tried our best to correct the one from the first visit with the second visit.

I was running this morning and completely out of nowhere, I got a severe shooting pain in my neck in shoulder. It took about 10 minutes to figure out that it wasn't going away any time soon and that I wouldn't be able to keep running. I had to walk about 2 miles back to my house. I can't turn my head to the left at all and if I lift my arms wrong I get some pretty extreme pain. It's been bad enough to make me scream a few times.
