My holiday this year is kinda crappy, but I think I'd rather fill out Property Loss and Rubble Removal forms that watch anything with either a Kardashian or a Beiber in it. :roll: :lol:
Seriously, I have to say that the support I've received from my family and friends has proved that things can be replaced; people can't...and they make up for all the crappy.

When you arrive at your parents’ house* for Christmas dinner at the agreed-upon time only to find that earlier guests have eaten all the food—the only thing left is half a pie.

*I am very grateful my parents are still with us.

I'm venting that I don't have a white Christmas this year! Simple as that. Blessed that I am healthy, and all the good that I've had this year. Experienced a parental loss this year that was the hardest thing to get through and accept.

i'm on the keto diet to manage my blood sugar levels, as my liver is trying to push me into t2 diabetes. to help it, no extra sugar allowed - of any kind.

what does the neighbour, who knows I can't have any starches or sugars for health reasons, do? brought over AN ENTIRE PIE and a bowl of macaroni and cheese. i. cannot. eat. any. of. this.

Pass it on.
I didn't cook. My daughter brought a full dinner home from work. I'm busy listening to the results of Hospital Wars. The fight is ongoing. I can't just dump half a bottle of seizure meds. These damned things have to be stepped down carefully or I'm right in the middle of the ER all over again. The nurses are keeping me updated. So far, no bloodshed. I had a full CT Brain scan at 1:30 AM Sat night. Neuro is still playing with that. I was fast asleep when they showed up to haul me to it. It's a major teaching hospital in addition to being a Regional so there are flocks of drs running together. You tell rank by how long their coats are. Department heads coats may need a coatman to hold a train if they are too short.
The nurses love me. I teach them how to keep score.

Back in captivity.
I've been getting rid of some kidney stones lately. As long as I can lose them myself I'm fine. Been there, done that... I can take rhat pain myself if they are small. Add an extra motrin if I need to.
I seem to have one stuck or something. Back to the ER I am hauled. More pain than I want right now.
Then my bp decided to go bananas. Geez, I just got here.

Maybe your ailments want to make sure you get your money's worth out of that hospital bed? :oops:
sorry. :(

It's one of those love hate relationships. :lol: If I don't go in, I get yelled at by one bunch. If I do, I get the look from another section of white coats for not going in to see them. I need to sell tickets. I have a bunch of things wrong with me that I don't take seriously. This frustrates a bunch of serious drs. I'm easy to work with and don't mind teaching how to write charts. It's a teaching hospital.

Maybe you should ask them to put you on retainer. ;)

A soldier I work witth, who is married to another co-worker, killed himself tonight. They had been married for less than 2 months. I have no words. I feel so helpless. We were all just at their wedding!

Please please please get help if you want to hurt yourself. Please.
