That's rough Fezza. My moms family has just gone through this, sort of, with her brother. I hope your dad is as comfortable as can be and that the rest of you can pull together and get each other though.


I have to go to the dr now. Dreading it. I need to schedule all the unpleasant things I've put off: sedated/drugged out of my skull, whatever for MRI, endoscopy schedule (need full anesthesia for this), blood work to show how crepe my iron levels are since I stopped taking supplements in order to be pain free enough to go to work, and other stuff. I feel like a forking hypochondriac going in with a list of 123829987 things to discuss. All, I better get a new script for pain meds. She was ok about it last time.

Oh, and discuss that depressing results of the neuro tests they did on my leg.

I'll definitely need a gingerbread latte on the way home.

Having a tooth pulled. And apparently a cyst thing removed from the root bit. I am fine now, but I know I won't be.

Got a call at work this morning that my dad has been diagnosed with dementia. The doctor wants him to stop driving immediately, which will be devastating to my fiercely independent dad. He just turned 67.

Oh Erika, I am so very sorry. That is so hard. I hope you and your family are getting lots of support at this difficult time.

My heart goes out to everyone who's dealing with really heavy stuff. I'm so sorry. My complaint is really minor.

Besides being exhausted all day due to a renegade carbon monoxide alarm, I just had one of those days that left me feeling like I'll never find anyone. Romantically I mean. I've had plenty of relationships. But I'm 25 and none have lasted longer than eight months. I'm starting to think it's me.

Blah. Bad day.

I can't decide if my attitude is bad today or if everyone around me is just a gigantic douchebag.

I've been waking up in an anxious state most mornings. Eating is also becoming more challenging, and I'm starting to lose weight, and am getting a little concerned.

Thanks, everyone. Obviously the diagnosis is serious business, but I am coming to terms with it a little more. My dad still hasn't been to see a neurologist, so there may be medications that can mitigate the damage or improve his quality of life. And most importantly, he's not a different person from who he was on Monday before the diagnosis, it just means we're better prepared for the future.

Hope that a neurologist can help him out Erika xxx


I think I might be getting an infection in both ears, but I'm more certain it's the left than the right. I had a bad cold a couple of weeks ago and had some fluid trapped behind my eardrum. I don't think it's quite cleared and have been getting a dull headache just on that side, but both ears feel odd - not painful or itchy but just off.

I think this is a really wise way to look at it. Much love to you and yours, I hope the neurologist helps.

Compared to yesterday, today's worst thing is pretty mild. But still:

I was lucky enough to get a seat on BART for my morning commute. When I stood up at my station, I felt something drop into my boot. I had been cross stitching, so I figured it was a ball of thread or something that had been in my lap? I don't know- at any rate, there was a big rush of people going out of the train, up the escalator, and out the turnstiles (picture salmon), so I didn't stop right away. I finally got to a place where I could put my bags down, unzip my boot, and shake it out: it was a nasty old dried up piece of gum that had fallen off from underneath the seat. D:

I'm sorry about your Dad Erika, it's a horrible situation for you all. My dad has had a very slow developing dementia for a few years now, I hope your Dad's doesn't progress too quickly <3

Hugs to everyone needing them xx

i am so unhappy about so many things going on right now, from people dying and my own medical situation and huge implacable angst about where to live and what to do to the mundane (my spouse won't interact with me in person, but will post endless crepe on my FB page). I just want to stay home and cry today. But I have to work today til 10pm, all weekend, and then next week again. and miss my kid's science fair tomorrow.

also, it looks like my business partnership is over and done with. this will be the second stab in my back in three months. I just want to throw up, constantly.

Lots of hugs Torque. That's a really long list of crepe to have to deal with. I hope things get better soon.

Erika, I am sorry about your dad. My cousin had Alzheimers and it really was difficult for his wife and family. I hope you can find plenty of resources to help you and your family cope.

Torque, I hope your situation gets better. That IS a lot to deal with.

I have bipolar, and sometimes, it has a heavy impact on my life. I've been fortunate to get a good doc and the right meds and to be stable for some time. I just started a new job, and so far it is very good. I just worry a lot which is probably the only really bad thing right now. I'm fortunate.

There is black mold in my front room, front bedroom, downstairs toilet and bathroom. The patch in the front room extends almost to the ceiling. I've sprayed it with distilled vinegar and washed it with hot bleachy water. We can't afford to move house until next April at the earliest.

thanks, people, thank you for kindness. things are looking a little better when i can get up on top of the pile.

as i've mentioned, my best friend is in the hospital, trying to get a new liver before her time is up. I was very lucky to spend some time talking with her today about when we both lived in RI, and my problems just fade away compared to her situation. Her son is newly married, hoping for kids. Her mom is senile in a nursing home. She has people to live for. She has so much to give the world and she's just reduced to abject panic, loss, that howling hysterical anger at knowing that yes, she's defied the odds for 30 years with Hep C, but now her time's up and her body is done. The unfairness. This is the person who taught me everything I know about zen and about mature viewpoints and wisdom and patience. Most importantly, she is my parenting mentor, and taught me everything I know about respecting, trusting and disciplining my child. I have been so lucky to know her.
