    I only know you both from your excellent contributions here but I am so sorry that you are dealing with such pain in your lives, from trauma and from grief & loss. Words just kind of fumble at these sort of issues, I know they don't really help. I just wish you weren't going through this.

    YouTube is throwing so many right wing videos at me over the past couple of days and I've not done anything more than watch the usual videos from people I'm already subscribed to. Wish you could report them without watching them.

    I'm so sorry about this, watching your best friend not be their best is rough.

    This may sound weird but there's a comic that I read daily that helped when my cat passed. It's about cats that the person who draws (actually paints in watercolor, to be fair) has owned over the years. Some of them have passed but she keeps their memory alive as characters in the comic. It's called Breaking Cat News and there are a couple collections available as well.

    You can ask YT to stop recommending videos from that channel, which might also tell the algorithm you're not interested in seeing similar content.

    everything I read about the algorerhythm is that is it operates on the "any interaction is an interaction" mindset so even that is it saying "well sure but eventually you're going to want to see this!"

    I cannot install ad blockers on my computer at work, hence the following complaint:

    The Temu ads are amazingly NSFW sometimes. I'm just trying to find information about how to make PowerAutomate and PowerApps work and the advertisements on the pages are so god damn creepy. I don't need to see an ad for what looks like a cock ring next to a tied-up anime fox girl ffs.

    This is more of a massive thing that's pissing me off. Vermont is FUCKED right now. We had so much rain the last couple days that there is horrible flooding all over the place. Thankfully I'm fine where I am, but some of the neighboring towns are completely underwater. Many of my friends and coworkers either got evacuated from their homes or are stuck in them. My work was closed yesterday and today, and they called off the rest of the week as well.

    I know motorcyclists want us all to be more careful watching out for them whenever there’s a tragic car accident, but…if more of them would also start wearing helmets and using turn signals and stop driving like they’re in some kind of action movie and trying to impress people, the rest of us on the road would really, REALLY appreciate it.

    Out there making the rest of us nervous all the time. Chill. We BOTH gotta be attentive and careful. You are not exempt from road rules just because you want to be cool instead of being safe. You gotta do your part, too.

    Also, those "loud pipes save lives" people? Someone gunned their "loud pipes" next to me once and startled me so much I almost swerved into him.

    When you buy something and you think it's like the last thing you bought because it has the same model number as the previous one you bought... and it's lesser... and doesn't fulfill your needs.

    And then you have to spend a lot more money to get what you wanted in the first place...

    My thyroid is all out of sync again so that’s been a frustrating rollercoaster.

    Waiting to hear from my doctor.

    Roommate's dog decided it would be a good idea to fight a skunk at 5 in the morning today (so like, 15 minutes ago).

    Ok, so, seriously, all the soft tissue on the right side of my neck is hard as a rock, still: I mean from my ear, down to the back of my neck. I feel like I've mentioned this before.

    So, THEN, the other day, I woke up with some sort of like, biological material all in my hair and beard (I've grown a ridiculous beard), that made it to where all that shit was stuck to my shirt.

    So they said it was CANCER, and then NOT cancer, and then maybe it IS, and then I saw an ENT who couldn't find anything wrong, and FUCK ME.

    Often, I can HEAR and FEEL like...fluid, going through my neck. It really sucks.

    ALSO
    Your mother.
    Not anyone's mother in PARTICULAR, but SPECIFICALLY, YOUR mother, if you're still reading this. If she's sick or no longer with us, I apologize.

    Does any of the above sound like ANYTHING that ANY of you folks have ever heard of?
    Like, i'm ready to slice my fucking head and neck in half, and see if i live.
    I'm just curious. I've been to MD after MD and specialist after specialist.
    I've hit a couple of oncology departments. I've had fucking CTs and PET scans and sonograms.
    I've been diagnosed with Lymphadenoma (which was real), and Lymphoma (a deadly blood cancer which was ALLEDGEDLY a false diagnosis), and a Bunch of Other More Shit.

    But, nobody can fix it. They feed me this medicine and that one. But, no matter what, it HUUUUUUUUUURTS.
    50% of my head and neck is rife with horrific agony, 90% of the time.

    ALSO, my Rheumatologist QUIT. @chuckrh , you're likely the only cat who MIGHT understand.
    Could it be that the Bullshit has gotten into my cervical spine?

    It's pretty rare with RA but the answer is yes. I'm currently fighting with insurance about getting a spinal implant. The trouble for me started in my lumbar spine but now has spread to my whole spine. I'm just this side of crippled. I really need a total spinal fusion but the surgeon thinks it would kill me & that surgery has a poor track record. My doctor is appealing the insurance company decision.

    Ok. I'm finally going to tell you guys the score, and I can only really be mad at myself.
    On April 22, I woke up at 7pm. I got in an argument with my wife and decided to borrow my mom's car to sneak a beer. I didn't want anyone to KNOW I was drinking a beer, so I drank it in the parking lot of the store.
    NOW. This is nothing to brag about, but I can GODDAMN sure drink ONE 24oz IPA and drive one mile. I have epilepsy, and I'd been neglecting to take my meds, though, and I had a fucking seizure at PRECISELY the worst possible time.
    In this town, they don't pull over the locals. But, I was driving erratically, so they kind of HAD to pull me over. For full context: seizures erase my memory. I don't even remember BUYING the can of beer. I just remember coming to (from the seizure, not the beer), in jail.
    I was so embarrassed that I wasn't even going to ASK anyone to bond me out, but then, they wouldn't give me my fucking Xanax or Suboxone.
    So I've been out on bond this WHOLE time. Because I caught a DWI in 2000, before I was old enough to DRINK, it's #2 and the penalty is harsh, and I'm facing up to 1.5 YEARS in the tiny, TINY jail, here: I'm talking 10 single cells, just in a row: 5 for men and five for women, just straight up IN the police station. YES, I had a seizure, BUT, over .08 is over .08.
    The scariest part is, that I've been on 3-4 mg of Xanax a day for like 15 years, and 24mg of suboxone for over four years. You can easily DIE from abrupt Xanax cessation, and the suboxone withdrawal is nastier than ACTUAL opiate withdrawal.
    Luckily, I (and my lawyer) have letters from three doctors attesting to this fact.
    Almost 5 months later and i still haven't heard anything. I refused to blow, and refused the blood test for as long as I could, so MAYBE my BAC had gotten low enough. And I've also got good friends, here, in high (for a small town) places, and my family name carries some weight, so MAYBE they won't throw the book at me. Shit, I wouldn't be so scared if this were Dallas (aside from the med issue) because it's 3 days per one day, due to overcrowding. Here, idk if they have good time or what-i mean, this is JAIL. Town of 2k: they'll leave the light on for you.

    I feel like I'm in a confession booth, here. I'm deeply sorry if anyone reading this has lost anyone, or been injured by someone drinking and driving. It was honestly one can, but, still. I know it's wrong.

    So between trying to compartmentalize THAT (i have a wife, and disabled mother, and now a teenage son to look out for, plus I don't wanna die from xanax withdrawal), along with "you have cancer/you don't/have cancer/wait you MIGHT/we don't know WHAT'S wrong", yeah...I feel like I've had my fucking head in a guillotine for months, waiting for the blade to drop, and i'm just trying not to lose my mind, here.
