So, I've decided that it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission and I some point I may just have to jump in.

Sadly thats about the point I'm at. I went about 3 years with out a dog in the house. And I couldn't stand it anymore, that how we ended up with Peewee the old man. Only at the time I told the husband. That he just showed up. Only problem with asking for forgiveness rather than getting him on board. Is the puppies breeder. She wants both on board so there is less chance of problems down the road and the puppy being returned.

I really need to not freak out today... because I feel like I'm going to freak out today. I'm contemplating going home sick to avoid freaking out and losing my job as a result.

I have just broken my fourth nail of the day...

I don't have access to clippers so I am trying to chew my nails down to sort of roundness which is better than the jagged claws I have now.

Ugh.

The two or three year old a couple doors down has apparently decided my "squirrels" and I are the ****. Which means she has started knocking on my door because she just wants to "hug my squirrel". When I tell her they're sleeping and can't come out right now, she tells me she wants to hug me. I had to pry Ella out of her hands because she didn't want to let her go.

She's cute and all, but it gets old fast



And yes, I've given up on correcting her, and let her call them squirrels. I can only correct a kid so many times.

Everything got erased off the DVR last night when it just decided to turn itself off. So many shows I've not had time to watch. Guess I may not have gotten to them anyway how it was going but ugh!!!!

This! How did you find out? I've had my suspicions for a bit... what do you use to treat yourself?

It was actually a bit of trial/error I guess? After having some spicy-hot (but not overly spicy-hot) food, my tummy got REALLY angry and I got really nauseous. I thought the nausea was odd. Then I had a discussion with a co-worker who had recently dewormed herself and had obvious results (nausea during meds, "proof" in her stool) and decided to get myself checked out when the nausea/abdominal pain wouldn't go away.

I guess sometimes hot foods can aggravate worms in the intestine. Not always, but sometimes. Doctor said deworming myself couldn't hurt, so I got pyrantel. Got the bad nausea and the frequent bathroom visits... yuck.

The doctor was telling me most folks in developed countries have SOME worms in their gut, but since we live healthy clean lifestyles for the most part, they don't often develop to be a problem unless something aggravates them.

Go body?

This whole nightsweat thing is terrible. I wake up every. single. night. feeling like I'm in an oven. And my clothes and the bed are soaked, meanwhile the room is FREEZING.

Look up causes and one of the main ones is hormone therapy/birth control.

Implanon. You want war? You'll get war. (srsly, the longer this thing is in, the worse everything gets.)

Now I just have to go through the hassle of finding a doctor.

It makes me pretty sick that walking into the planned parenthood in Boston requires an escort service, about 20 security cameras and 2 metal detectors. I get it, abortion isn't your thing and you are against it.. so picketing and threatening girls going in there is helping the cause how exactly?

Even beyond the prochoice issue... planned parenthood offers birth control, prenatal care, help with abusive relationships/families and so much more, like why are people so ADAMANT about people being shamed for going in there?

I kept putting down '1' because I read it as 'a cat missing 1 leg is missing how many legs' for some reason.

It's 3.
Holy ****.
HOLY ****.
THIS QUESTION HAS HAD ME SO UPSET FOR SO LONG!!
