Guys, it's not that simple. One, he's getting out of the hospital tomorrow, and he had to miss his brother's funeral because of it. The stress of everything was just too hard on his ticker.
He's been a part of the family for 12 years. He did a lot to help my brother, he's done a lot to help me. If he needs to crash at my place for a few days, I'm not gonna say no.
And I just told my mother and she's fine with it. But admitted she won't be over to visit.
And if my current life was a TV show, it would NOT be a sit-com. It would be a drama show. Maybe with some ex-rated stuff thrown in for good measure.

I really doubt she means it literally. We all say stuff like that when we are stressed out. I wouldn't consider it a real threat. Andů. if she did it would be all over the news. She's way too private a person to let that happen.

That's what this thread is for - to vent and find support, while you talk about random everyday stuff. No reason to be an ass. Unless you have taken the time to read through all the posts on this thread, you know nothing about cheluzal. Not that she would ever use what has happened over the past few years as an excuse, but she is entitled to have some really bad or angry days and she deserves a safe place to spout off as much as anyone else.
Not that she needs me to stick up for her, but I'll do it anyway ;)
We all have really bad or angry days and I understand hers. Some of us keep our reasons to ourselves, which is our choice. Still no excuse for some to get quite vile over minor comments that are not loaded with name-calling.

I may get a little sarcastic or snarky or argue my views but I don't think I drop down to that level of personal attack.

Also, when was the rule of demanding to be ignored initiated? If one wants to be ignored then one shouldn't post.

cunzel would do well to refrain from calling others doushebags herself. Glass houses and all that.

Dont get me wrong though. I am glad that she is back and posting, and kinda reaching out, but I think she needs to accept that playing nice is a two way street. Nobody is above reproach or being called on the carpet.

Haha :) I went to an acupuncturist today to try to get rid of my migraines. Hope this works!
My friend gets acupuncture for migraines and says it works wonders! I knwo a few people that get the cupping, too. I haven't tried acupuncture myself, though.

Calling people out for being rude is one thing. Basically telling them to go away because no one wants to listen to them when they need a shoulder or support is another.

This looks like the start of an interesting discussion. I'm *almost* sad that I will have to miss most of it.

Which is why I didn't reply to your post. I know that some people just rub each other the wrong way and bring out the worst in each other. I don't usually call people names, even on Topix (I'm pretty much the same person on here that I am IRL, which is why I have so many Topix friends that are now FB friends), but that's just me. I try not to get in between people's feuds on here.

No matter how much I dislike someone though, the minute they type a separate post that calls out for help, a shoulder to lean on, or a non-judgmental ear, the last response I would give is snark or dismissiveness. Over the past few years, I think all of the Regs have come here for support at one time or another.

Speak for yourself. I don't have angry days. I have things that make me angry, but it does not affect how i conduct myself with people that have nothing do do with it.

Do your angry days coincide with the use of feminine hygeine products?

I must have missed the cry for help. I only saw the antagonistic bitchy ones.

Then our resident realist chimes in....

:D Love you Tonk.

That last sentence of yours, IRL -- to a woman, can get you maimed. Horribly.

I find it ironic that the liberally inclined on here have no problem buying adults who are complete strangers healthcare and providing them with all sorts of handouts, as if they are children who must be cared for by their surrogate mommy and daddy (taxpayers), but act incredulous at the notion of allowing someone who is close to you and your family and suffering hard times to shack up with ya for awhile.

Okay -- now that we've traded barbs, time to get into what's really important.

I think Scarlet posted it a bit ago. I'm eagerly waiting for Friday.

Abby won't post. No big loss. It is a single letter extolling the virtues of writing thank you notes and pitching her book on how to do so..

No doubt she and the inters are all down with the flu

That's because Tonka is only your alias and I know that your real name is Mr. Spock.

Often my psycho days fall on days when my hormones are out of whack. That's not a coincidence. Maybe I should try to post here on those days, instead of just crying over my iPhone ;)
