Odette, ugh, that is awful. So sorry that your parents keep living down to worst expectations :( I can't imagine how draining it must be for you.

Wishing you strength and small comforts.

Hugs Odette - so sorry to hear that.

It's probably one of the most difficult things in life - finding out our own parents are not the best for us. No matter how well one can rationalize this on a purely intellectual level - on the emotional level it will always kick in and hurt.

Strength and new sources of happiness for you!

Can I just say... you two, among many others here, have been incredibly supportive. It astonishes me sometimes. I try my darnedest not to go overboard with these types of posts, and to counter them with some positivity, but some days I just cave and let it all out. I haven't sensed a word of exasperation from any of you amazing Dimsfolk. It's really more humbling than I can say. Thank you. :blush:

Looks like my Father has pretty severe esophageal cancer.

He is 82, and has been in exceptional health. Sooner or later that was going to change, but this went undetected for a long time so the very sudden very severe news has just left me numb for now. Still struggling to process this. Or in other words FAAAAAAACK!

I'm so sorry Tad. It's never easy to hear a loved one is ill and it's so hard when it's sudden like that. Sending lots of positive thoughts your way.

Oh no, Tad! :( I'm so sorry you've had such news out of nowhere like that. Much love and strength to you and your family.

I know guys aren't supposed to do this, but you need a hug?

Unhappy today about the dating scene for SSBHM's on feedism dating sites. Just wow... I can't believe how crazy everyone is about begging for money on these "social" fat sites. Not only that, but the number of fake profiles that are just people trying to get you to send pics and post them up on tumblr and co. It's hard enough to meet with and connect with people due to the sheer number of other options it seems like everyone else has on these sites. Where can a cherubic guy to talk to real people?!?! *throws hands up*

I had a stress dream that shot up my anxiety. I haven't been able to bring it down and it's to the point where Archer trying to get me to play with him while I eat breakfast (which happened every morning) frustrated me to the point of tears so I had to call out of work. Today I was supposed to cover at the psych hospital, I love being there, I've never called out on a hospital day.

Piggies are sick again.

Meg had a bladder infection/sludge that needs a special diet and oral medication twice a day.

Missy has ovarian cysts. I either need for have her operated on, or need to give her hormone injections. Operations are a huge deal for piggies, the average rate of recovery from spaying is ~75%. Which is good, but, you know, 25% chance of her dying is terrifying.

I'm so sorry loopy. Hopefully they get to feeling better soon. It's so hard when a pet is sick.

Awww =/ Good luck with the two of them, Loops. Let us know how they get on. You should rep them in that thread in the Lounge sometime :happy:

I actually have some unhappy news along the same line. One of my puppies died very suddenly today, of septicemia, after killing a rat she'd found in the house last night. (Due to the drought, many critters are invading houses looking for water.) It still feels so surreal that she's gone. Just hours ago she was still playing and jumping around like a jack-in-a-box. The bacteria got to her brain and within less than 2 hours she was barely conscious. RIP little Nani. You were the life of the puppy party.

That is devastating, Odette. My heart goes out to everyone who loved her.

loopy, best health wishes to your poor pigs. Sounds draining for you, so wishes of energy and strength your way too.

My beautiful baby girl, Missy, died today. She had been sick for a few days, but I was forced between having an operation with a 5% success rate, watching her suffer or having her put to sleep. She was so brave.

RIP Mistletoe
