Mark, KitchenPC is a website like what you described earlier. :)

The weekend kinda blew chunks but I got my animals moved to the house... It meant I got to bed late and only got 5.5 hrs sleep but I missed my fur babies :D
Today we're meant to have a barbeque at the house... C's Idea. On the one hand that means I don't have to cook but on the other I just don't feel like dealing with people and having the BBQ means no moving will be done tomorrow either unless it is late at night again... FML

Edit~ Also this morning is a typical Monday already but I had the unique displeasure this morning of our bus being stopped for speeding and having to wait for the officer to give the driver a ticket... this was made more awkward by recognizing the officer from work... :S

So how is everyone else?

My T told me today that she wants me to go inpatient.

Doikers 23-05-2011 07:49 PM

*Hugs Laura* I'm sorry hun , how do you feel?

*Hugs Crimson* Please PM me the website , I'm scattered and won't remember your post, sorry.

Laura2.0 23-05-2011 07:53 PM

*hugs mark*
I'm not going inpatient. I told her that and she printed out a referral anyway. Not sure what I'm thinking about that.
Sat in the park for 2 hours. Called a friend and told her while I was crying. Then I wrote a list of reasons why I didn't take the pills and gave that to the receptionist of the T.
I came to the conclusion that I'm going to ask for another appointment after the T is returned from vacation and work on some of the answers she wants from me.

PoisonedApple 23-05-2011 08:36 PM

Laura, If she is still persistent on inpatient are you willing to take the meds to keep from being inpatient? If so, maybe telling her that will be a good compromise for both you and your T...?

Mark, sure thing! I'll do that now. :)

Laura2.0 23-05-2011 08:41 PM

That sounds like a good idea.
I'm not refusing the meds, I just feel like I'm not ready for meds.
I couldn't even imagine to ask for an appointment 6 weeks ago. Now she wants me to take meds and go inpatient. It's just all too fast.
How are you?

EDIT: what if she notices that I'd do anything to stay out of hospital? She could manipulate me with it.

In a recent audit of the VA Disability Compensation System at 16 Regional Offices, the VA Office of the Inspector General estimates that the rating staff incorrectly processed 23 percent of the 45,000 claims inspected.
The IG investigated offices throughout the US and focused mainly on the handling of the following five types of claims: 1) temporary 100 percent disability evaluations (TDIU), 2) PTSD, 3) TBI, 4) Herbicide Expo*sure, and 5) Haas (Haas v Nicholson: “blue water” claims from Vietnam Agent Orange exposure). The processes evaluated ranged from mail handling to actual disability percentage awards.
Of the 16 Regional Offices, Baltimore, MD and Anchorage, AK scored the lowest in compliance with VA standards. Both failed to meet 14 of the 15 process requirements. Extended management vacancies were cited as one of the linking factors between all poorly performing Regional Offices. Because of the vacancies, these offices lacked continuity and proper oversight. As a result, procedures were not developed or implemented to correct previously identified problems.

I could seriously cry right now! I've been fighting with the anchorage office off and on for YEARS! They denied my hearing loss, denied my knees, denied my mental health, refused to give my daughter her apportionment that they've been giving to her father who hasn't been raising her or even paying child support... And now that comes out...

Hi everyone, how are we all? *hugs everyone*

I don't know what to say to you all today. I want to impart some great wisdom or other that makes everyone feel amazing, but I can't. :-(

The only tip I do have is to use this website called Moodscape. If anyone would like me to buddy them on there, please PM me for my email so I can buddy you. (It's NOT the email I have listed as my MSN).

PoisonedApple 23-05-2011 09:42 PM

Moodscape MJ?

dontwantyoutoknow 23-05-2011 09:49 PM


Sorry, it's scope lol. I'm thick :-( You track your mood every day and after a few days it's supposed to tell you some stuffs. I don't know to be honest, but it looks good, and I'm on Day 2.

Laura2.0 23-05-2011 10:07 PM

*hugs MJ* sounds interesting.

Arrrrg I can't beleive there was meat in my flat and he touched stuff (Including me) With his meat holding hand without washing it ! So mad ,Really.

I'm going to BBQ with my siblings and dad. erm... I'm not a fan of BBQs cause I'm a vegetarian and they are all going to eat meat. I prepared some mushrooms with garlic butter and zucchini with olive oil and salt&pepper. yum.

flutterby butterfly 24-05-2011 05:54 PM

that sounds nice Laura. I went mental at a guy at work once for cutting my bagel with a knife he'd just used to cut ham, & he refused to clean it. I still get stressed when i think about it now - even though it worked out ok in the end

Doikers 24-05-2011 05:57 PM

*Hugs Laura*

*Hugs Mara* you are well within your rights to be mad at that guy :/

aklx 24-05-2011 06:32 PM

*hugs Doikers*
I'd be pissed off too Mara!
That sounds yum Laura. I haven't eaten dinner yet and now I'm hungry lol
I'm a vegetarian too :)
I hate it when people call themselves vegetarians but they eat fish or eat chicken...it's like wtf? How does that work?

Doikers 24-05-2011 06:39 PM

Oh I get that same pet peeve Mrs Sam !

Laura2.0 24-05-2011 08:22 PM

*hugs all*
The food was good. I ate more than usually so that's good I guess.
Earlier today I had the best experience in ages. Went for a trail ride with 2 other girls and we went to bath in the river... with the horses of course. Then there was a part where the water was really deep. And my horse went there and swam. With me on top and it was very very awesome. I love my horse.

Doikers 24-05-2011 08:28 PM

!YEY! Laura :)

Do therapists always look at people as if they care?

Doikers 24-05-2011 08:54 PM

Never been to a Therapist, Laura , But My Psychologist and P doc seem to care :)

Laura2.0 24-05-2011 08:59 PM

that's cool.
My psychotherapist keeps looking at me as if she cares. But I'm sure that she's trying to manipulate me, so she doesn't really care after all.

dontwantyoutoknow 24-05-2011 09:22 PM

I'm vegetarian too; used to be vegan but it was more of an ED thing. And I was thin then. And now I'm back to veggie and I've got fat again. Meh. But as long as I'm not eating anything dead it's ok I guess.

Laura - I sooooooooo want to go swimming with a horse, and ride on the beach and all. I've been to Germany before but want to go back. I went to Koln/Cologne. :-) At Christmastime - the markets were awesome.

*hugs Mark* I'd be pretty pissed over that too.

Laura2.0 24-05-2011 09:26 PM

*hugs MJ* I haven't been at a beach with my horse, cause we don't have any beaches here (south germany). Did you visit the dome in cologne? It's huge.
