    Are you exploding?!

    Seriously though, I hope the swelling goes down, that can't be comfortable at all and that you get some answers for what's going on. I'm glad it's not immediately life threatening though.

    I'm so annoyed with wired right now. I'm active on random acts of pizza on reddit.

    It's suppose to be a fun cheer someone up thing. Wired wrote an article on how to scam people there.

    Omg, if you want the dog to go away, STOP TALKING TO HIM. And if you don't want the cat to bite you/try to steal your lunch, stop giving him some of your sandwich EVERY TIME HE BITES YOU. And no, just because an animal walks up to you, or by you, does not mean it is asking for food, so please stop saying 'Sorry, I don't have treats. I don't have treats!! What do you want? Treats? I don't have any!' five times, before I eject you from the room. Deeeaaarrr lord, where did you learn to interact with pets?

    And then when I walk by to pet MY cat, she's all 'Oh what's wrong, Ollie? What's happening to you?' wtf, I'm petting my cat and he's leaning in for more, go away....?

    I'm slowly being driven insane.

    I just saw this a few minutes ago. How scary, especially without a known cause. I hope the swelling goes down soon and that you'll be ok. :-(

    I hate how when I get mad I want to cry. Because I'm really mad and want to cry right now.

    I don't understand what happened to the respect I used to get.

    Haven't had a period since May 1st and its really annoying me. I hate being so irregular. Took a test to be on the safe side and its negative. Took a few tests and they are negative. Feel sick I I even think about food and just feel sick all around. Plus my skin picking issues are getting worse and I destroyed a spot just below my knee the other day. Didn't realize how bad I picked at that spot until it looked like a shallow crater. I hate this and I really wish I could STOP picking at my skin.

    Made the mistake of watching Talia's video where she tells everybody she has up to a year left to live and has decided to not pursue any treatment... she is so amazingly well-spoken and collected for how young she is, as is often the case when kids have ugly, horrible diseases.
    And all I can think about is Tucker when he decided not to pursue treatment anymore. And how immensely brave he was and how mature to have made that decision when he was just a kid. And how I can still hear him saying hi to me every time he came to the station and I pray to God as time passes I will never forget the sound of his voice. And how much this world sucks for losing people like this.

    I just can't stop crying.

    This is what my wasp sting has turned into.

    [​IMG]

    I went to soak it in the hot tub and what happens? well a swarm of the buggars come flying out and circling me. I am no longer going outside.

    This is not how i wanted to die. There are SO MANY much cooler scenarios that I envisioned.

    Ouch, that looks painful.

    I am venting because I was certain I was going to buy a house in Alberta, everything was going great, then everything fell apart and it's not happening. So now we are stuck trying to find a place to rent again, in a province that apparently really hates dogs over 25 pounds.

    But, I called about a place tonight and the landlord said that she doesn't care about dogs or cats. Zomg. So now I'm totally stressed because Nathan is only getting into town late tonight and I'm scared that someone is going to snag it before he go see it tomorrow. Ugh.

    OMG that looks horrible.

    Is it just there it's not spreading up your leg or anything is it?

    The swelling seems to be isolated to the bite and below to my foot. My mum is a nurse though thank dog so she can take a look at it and if it gets scary I'll go in. I've got polysporin and pretty heavy duty bandage on the actual sting now so fingers crossed.

    Does your elbow joint hurt? Twice in my life I have had weird swellings on my legs accompanied by joint pain, and it turned out to be some unidentified autoimmune thing. Prednisone cleared it up.

    I hope whatever it is gets better--it's so unsettling to not have a cause when something like that happens.

    My vent is that the only thing I hate more than this heat is working 12 hours in it. Thank God this is not my normal schedule. Also, I don't want to go straight home, eat, and go to bed--I want me time dammit. I have to choose between me time and sleep.... DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE. First world problems....

    Also, my dad has successfully p!ssed off my aunt again (whole he lives with-she helps support him). Of course he does this right before the weekend I'm supposed to come down, so I will have to listen to her bitch, then have to have words with my dad about his behavior. Ugh...

    I've had this... Lump for like, as long as I remember. So I've never really paid attention to it.

    Except it changed. And now I'm like SKIN CANCER.

    Whiskey slept next to me on my pillow and I woke up barely able to breathe. Now my throat feels like it is filled with mucus and swollen and my nose is stuffy and skin is itchy. Have I mentioned that I'm allergic to cats? It's not so bad that I can't own cats, but **** him for sleeping ON my pillow.
