I was just basing my comments on what you originally posted.
I forgive you, the situation for me is more complicated than it seems due to the way I word things and how overall, everything in my life is overstuffed. I really don't know what to expect from this situation because I know there's this selfish part of me who wants everything to go a certain way to benefit me and spite my enemies since I can be spiteful to people I don't like.

My whole thing is, you can't support someone who doesn't want your support or friendship. Likewise, you shouldn't overextend yourself for someone else when there's so much going on in your own life. Self-care is #1, bitches.

Drink 32oz of water a day, exercise daily for at least 30 minutes, take your meds as prescribed, eat healthy (count calories), reach out to your support network when you need them, practice basic hygiene, learn from your mistakes, forgive yourself for your failures, admit when you're wrong, be humble when you're right, be nice to animals, and try again.

Honestly I haven't been in a stable relationship in a year (something more then a few weeks or beyond hooking up) and it's annoying, but I recognize why that's going on. Self-humility and analysis is important.

I agree about you shouldn't support someone that doesn't want it.

Cockroaches are absolutely disgusting. I used to have a horrid infestation of them at my old apartment in NYC.

Agreed. Like, I respect them, they're beautiful in their own way and one of evolution's masterworks in terms of survivability. But they get into e v e r y t h i n g once they're in your house, spreading poop and general contamination everywhere they go. The only thing worse is mice. And they really are orders of magnitude worse.

Not really an entire day ruiner, but my boyfriend and I got a PS4 over the weekend, and it messed with our TV's HDCP configuration (or lack thereof). We managed to get the PS4 to work with the TV by disabling HDCP while connected to a smaller TV I use as a second computer monitor, but I haven't been able to connect to this TV with my PS3 via HDMI anymore. I'm thinking perhaps it's an issue where the system thinks I'm trying to illegally copy games or something, since the PS3 is American and the TV is European. Never had this issue until the PS4 (obviously European) came into the picture.

I can still use the PS3 connected via AV cables, but there's a drastic dip in video quality. I also can't just email Playstation support, which is dumb. I can't call either because for one, it's international, and two, I'm going to sleep when their business hours begin.

So not an entire day ruined, though it's taken most of my free time today to try and fix, but will definitely ruin me using my PS3 going forward until the day comes when we're able to get a new or second large TV.

Finding out that I need open heart surgery within the next few weeks hasn't exactly made my day any better, I'll tell you that much.

I was going to say that stapling my own fingertip ruined my day, but damn. Really puts things into perspective. I hope you make it through okay. I wish you the best in this.

Thanks! By the standards of open heart surgeries, a valve replacement is fairly routine, and the surgeon I have a consult with tomorrow is apparently one of the best in the world. Plus, for the last year and a half my doctor has been getting me into the best physical shape of my adult life, because eventually I was going to have to have this surgery (just hoped it'd be ten or twenty years from now), and right now I'm an excellent candidate for it.

I mean, I'm absolutely terrified, of course, but logically I know I'll probably come through this fine.

Hey, stapling your fingertip hurts! I didn't actually experience any physical pain today! ;)

I have made a serious goddamn mistake watching these victim testimonies from the Larry Nassar hearings. I went down the rabbit hole with one YouTube recommendation, and it brought me here. The emotion just drowns you. I'm watching a mother tell her daughter's story, because she couldn't be there to tell it herself, because she took her own life. I haven't cried this hard in a long time. And knowing I have nieces, and baby cousins, that something like this could happen to them, heaven forbid, but the idea just freezes me with horror.

I'm sorry, I just had to say something.
