Long, long ago, I had a coworker that jumped off a bridge. After years of not being in contact with his young daughter, he tried to get sober. He'd started talking to her, things were going well. But he just couldn't give it up. So he jumped.

He was a super nice guy, and a great employee. His family held his memorial in the middle of the day and workshift, so very few of us could go. We get there, and it's in a large conference room at a local hotel. With WITH a full fucking bar.

If you are gonna have a wake, have one. But this was all set up run like a memorial. Apparently their need to drink during the service kept them from having it at a funeral home, it church, or wherever.

Hell, I even went to one in a high school gym once and it was full. He lived two separate lives with two separate families (not two wives, he was Native American, but adopted into a white family, but then was very active with his birth family), so both communities, and also rally family for 40 of my years so he knew a motherfuckton of people.

Sorry, sidetracked :420:

I think this is in the wrong thread. Not that’s unwelcomed but looks like you were talking to someone not in this thread. :o

Have you not been posting updates, or am I just not seeing them (haven't checked watched threads in a little bit though)
I have on my fb wall.. so her friends stop sending me 11ty million texts everyday lol

She's ok. She still hasn't eaten and she is so tired. I gave her a bed bath today and changed her bedding and such and she said that felt better but she barely keeps her eyes open when we do anything. :hs: she has had two blood transfusions now and they said she's about a day behind where she should be. I'm at a loss for how she's going to improve enough that in 5 days she's out of there and home. 🤯

Ask for blood work, after seeing my mom the way she has been the past few days... look into it and don't put your health off.
I have bloodwork at least every 3 months; every month recently because they're trying to get my synthroid dose stabilized. Me and the needle are buddies. Full CBC every time now. :hs:

Is that maybe why you're overly tired right now too?
I'm anemic as all get out. My increasingly heavy cycle is likely to blame.

Like, when I got to my SIL's house last month after 5 hours straight in the car on day 6 of my cycle, I thought I was having a miscarriage the solid clots were small fist sized and I'm not even speaking in hyperbole. I wasn't pregnant either. :wtc:

It's likely causing my endocrine system to go all haywire. Which is causing a bunch of other really fucked up problems.

Once the improving starts it seems to go quick. Maybe the bodies' own motivation to get the fuck out of a hospital

Sounds like she needs rest. It was a big scary surgery, she's gotta be wiped out physically and mentally.

I'll go look at your page :love:

Oh fuck that sucks :hug: I've been so off on my cycles lately.

I switched to organic tampons this year and stopped taking my silicone cup (cause I'm allergic to silicone lol) that has seemed to have helped some of my pains randomly. I also take Naproxen now too which has been a huge help with blood flow and cramps. I still have one day of my cycle when it's hard to get out of bed though:hs:


anyways maybe worth a shot for yourself too

That was the universe reminding your mum that you still need her and to keep fighting

I'll look into it. This is unmanageable. Don't get old, ladies. :hug:

My poor husband (and me). I have like 15 total days out of any 26 day cycle in which I can have sex so that's going super well.

Aww.. I'm sorry. I had a similar thing last month where I was in so much pain I finally told my Dr I'm done and book me a specialist to get a hysterectomy.


I guess this is when you polish up on that oral for him 🤭

Omfg also mini rant..

My mom's stupid friend we have known for 25 + years said she wanted to visit my mom. I told her no because my mom doesn't want to see anyone and is so tired. She's all "oh well ill just pop in and say hi and only stay 5min"


No bish that means you don't go visit at all. :mad: I told my dad she can call me if she has a problem with staying away and respecting our families wishes right now.

Eh it's been tough... like I feel like at any second someone will call and say she passed away. Today she was laying there and I'm like ..holy fuck you look just like I remember your dad looking just before he passed. It was a weird happy sad moment, but also making me realize how little of time we actually have left with our loved ones.

PM if you need anything. I totally understand what you are going through and can hopefully give you a few home care tips if you need them. Not sure/comfort about posting personal hygiene stuff in the main so pm. Mom said you lose all modesty when you get sick, but I still think it’s proper to respect other’s privacy. :o
