Uggh. Lousy day.
Posted by: anonymouse1
Date: December 06, 2021 01:47PM
Have a temporary medical thing which has me feeling under the weather for a day or two, and 14 year old daughter exacerbated some stuff at school, was sent home for a couple of days (bad decision on their part, IMHO), and I just don't have the energy I want to have.

uggh!

Looks like we have some wind coming this evening, hopefully all this just blows over.

Trust me - it could be worse, much much worse. I won't go into details now, but this could be the worse day in my 60 years of life.

I would trade you in a heartbeat, but would not wish this experience on anyone (though we will all go through it)

Give your daughter a hug, tell her you love her.

Whenever I get a day like that I imagine that someone else has it way more worse off than myself.

If I'm correct in my assumption, Ombligo is probably having a day we all wish would never happen.

Sorry to hear. One thing about getting older, the lousy days get worse but it gets easier to let them go.

Today, the problem is small. My garbage disposal needs to be replaced. I'm hoping I can just drop in a new unit.

So sorry to hear that. Best thoughts to both you and anonymouse1.

And Sarcany wins the "best cheer-up reply of the day" award.

first, thank you everyone. I'll be okay and will post about in a day or two.

Next, apologies to Anonymouse1. I did not intend to hijack the thread or make into a contest. I posted without thinking.


Mavic if you have the standard three latch mount, then Badger, Insinkerator, and Moen all will fit. The Moen is better than Badger but not as expensive as Insinkerator.

I generally hate the Holidays, but this year its worse than any other. But at least I'm not dead.

Fair point. I need to get a medical proxy ASAP for my partner now that I have no real family left.

Best wishes and prayers to both of you. We all have days/weeks/months like this that we wish would never end.

As I tell my patients, getting older is no fun, but it's better than the alternative. I did have a 94yo once tell me I was wrong and I would hopefully get to be old enough to realize that myself.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way.
For me it's not health reasons, emotional would be a better way to describe it for me.

It's everything. I need 5 surgeries, and eventually cataracts in both eyes.

Oh, and I can't get effective pain management. smiley-gen081

OMG! Not sure what to say now. I will definitely send positive vibes your way,
if you believe in that type of power.
Many times just knowing others care is a healing means of it's own.
