Just found out that a friend of mine is in a physically abusive relationship and the reason I haven't seen her for stretches of time is because she's been beat up. I just found out now because no one has heard from her in 4 days. So I'm simultaneously furious and sick.

I'm sorry, I really hope you hear something from her soon. Being in a situation where someone you love is being abused is a shitty, scary place.


She got in touch just as two other friends were about to go to the police and file a missing persons report. I knew none of this before this morning so it's a total blindside. There's only so much we can do but we are going to do at least that- tell her we're concerned, give her an exit strategy, keep up-to-date and in touch. And try not to hunt this forker down and stab his eyes out with a pen.

I've gone from shaking my head in disappointment and sadness to being forking scared. What in the hell is wrong with this country?

Apparently the shooter is now dead and we don't know anything else.

How many has it been this month? Is it time to talk about it yet? Is it time to look at how we are failing?

Wow that is insane. I'd say we'd need to reach the tipping point before people will reconsider gun laws but I think we are there.
I think this sums it up pretty well and this was from a year ago

It's probably just time to talk about how it should be our right to take guns into Chipotle.

Because obviously the answer is to make sure everyone is armed so they can 'protect' themselves.

I thought the tipping point was when a kid killed a bunch of helpless little children. Oh wait, that was what, three school shootings ago?

I feel like we do have to protect ourselves now, though by arming children in bullet proof vests before they go to school. I'm only half joking. Reminds me of the time of the DC sniper when I lived in Virginia. People were donning vests to fill their cars up with gas. It's gotten so ridiculous that I feel like everyone is a potential target for a random bullet.

Did you guys see that piece about stray bullets being a public health issue? what the fizzle. We are going to need to start passing out pamphlets about how not to get shot just like we do about STIs and effective condom use.

I gave some money to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and also Everytown for Gun Safety because it felt better than just sitting here feeling hopeless and scared.

According to an internet graphic, it was 74 ago. I don't know how reliable that number is but most shootings don't make big headlines so it wouldn't be surprising.

Jesus forking christ.

This is smaller potatoes, but my basket/commute bike was stolen. It's not terribly valuable, but it was an awesome bike that D spent a bunch of time finding parts for and putting together. It was a rad vintage frame as well. This means extra wear and tear on my already super worn and torn race bike, and another setback in buying a new race bike.

I'm sorry, dude. It may be smaller potatoes, but it fits into the theme of "people are horrible dickbags".

I had a post-work frustration cry. It was the first day I had been feeling better/well in months and someone was able to shiitake on it in one fell swoop.

I often have to listen to my coworkers (healthcare providers) complain about the lazy Medicaid patients who act so entitled. "No one forced them to be on Medicaid! They're always the ones who complain!" I couldn't keep my mouth shut today and had to ask what poor people are supposed to do when they need care, go die on a street corner? And these are people who consider themselves liberals.

Also, everyone where I live plasters their car with disgusting "you can't take my guns away" stickers and I forking HATE GUNS.

Shaming a kid because the parent didn't pay $.26 in lunch money is pretty shitty. Defending that because you hate the poor... equally as shitty.

Seriously, shaming the poor is always the worst.

I just had my first major panic attack in almost 6 months :[

I know it probably was brought on because I haven't been sleeping well, nor have I been eating well. It just sucks because I start to freak out, and it gets worse. I end up not really getting much sleep because I fear that I might not wake up in the morning. I know it's just all in my head, but my panic attacks cripple me. I get numb on the side of my face, the room starts to spin, and my heart starts racing. Most of the time, I black out. It's terrifying, and I wish I knew how to control them.

I just got in email saying "i never received your BA thesis, therefore you have failed, it should have been handed in by yesterday".
My boyfriend handed it in 3-4 weeks ago. I am freaking out.

Surely it's a mistake, VeganInBerlin! I hope it gets sorted out ASAP.

Part of my job is to check off beer as it's loaded onto the distributors' trucks. Yesterday while I was doing so, the driver kept asking me question after question about any- and everything. I remember thinking he was like a little kid. He was all, "How come ...blah blah blah?" and "How come you blah blah?" "Why is this beer called that?" "Who names the beer?" etc. the entire time I was standing there trying to work, and I was definitely distracted.

Today we got an email from the distributor saying they were short a pallet, and I just got totally reamed by my boss for it. I couldn't really say, "But the driver distracted me!" because that's a lame excuse, but I really do feel like if he hadn't been talking to me non-stop for the entire hour it took to load, it wouldn't have happened.

The first step is recognizing you can't control them! The more power you try to exert over them, the more panicked and lost you'll be. You have to deal with panic paradoxically - the more you accept it, the more it is okay. (I'm a panic attack veteran myself!)

I hope you find peace!
