About Me

Just curious: did TLG make an arse of himself at Tiff's wedding? nt

My dog died.

She was the (very) older of the two. Really smart and sweet. I'm so tired of feeling sad.

Both dogs appeared to be grieving the other losses in our family, but she stopped eating. I took her into the vet. I have no idea what my finances are going to look like, so I couldn't hospitalize her. We tried other treatment over the last week, but she was getting progressively worse.

What can I do for my grieving dogs?

One won't hardly leave my bedroom. I guess he's afraid I will "disappear" like my husband did last month (sudden death).

The other one is even more mopey. She doesn't want to play. She barely eats her dog food, but she'll hang around for table scraps. They both have lost weight.

It's hard enough on us. but now my dogs are hurting too.

I will never be an elder-caregiver again.

My MIL was total care the last couple of months of her life. I hired a little help to care for her during the week, but most of her care still fell on me. She finally passed peacefully, using morphine drops for perceived discomfort at home.

I won't have to worry about caring for my husband as he ages because because he died a few weeks before his mother. There is no doubt in my mind that this stress and other chronic stressors contributed to his demise. My sweetheart is gone. My children's father is gone. I won't have a partner in retirement. I had to make his mom's funeral arrangements. As I told the social worker, I feel fucked over in addition to being sad, depressed, tired, and angry.

BTW, I will be deleting my thread in a few days just because I don't want family accidentally finding it.

And that, my friends, has been my adventure in elder-caregiving.

Desperate, crazy anti-Warnock ad in Georgia:

"Joe Biden and Raphael Warnock believe a man can get pregnant. They believe a boy can become a girl by giving him female hormones and surgical amputation. Tell Warnock and Biden Hands off our kids."

Because Biden is forcing transgender kids to change? It's ridiculous, and I fully expect it to be a Qanon talking bullshit by dinnertime.

Cross-posted from GD: Mail truck potentially carrying absentee ballots 'burned to a crisp'

BAKER COUNTY, Ga. - A mail truck potentially carrying absentee ballots in south Georgia caught fire on Monday.

Photos shared by the Baker County Sheriff’s Office shows the Jeep fully engulfed in flames along a rural roadway about ten miles southwest of Albany.

The mail carrier was not injured.

Deputies say the Newton Post Office has a list of packages and mail that was being delivered along the route.

It sounds like the county already knows what absentee ballots will need to be reissued. Cue the MAGAt idiots to proclaim Ds are cheating.

I voted early in Ga, and as I thanked the poll workers,

one of them said, "It's been a long day." I asked if it was because of the machines, and she said, "No, it was some people," but she would not elaborate any further. I guess some MAGAts or election deniers were pissed about the machines.

I'm sick of the lies in the R election ads, BTW. Especially the anti-Warnock ads and the pro-Walker bs.

Good grief. 5 emails from Nevada's Masto in one day.

I rarely get more than two per day from other candidates. I don't even know how I got on her list.

A prolife young man came to my door with a flyer.

I was in a good mood, so I talked to him about why I'm pro-choice:
1. women don't go through 7 months of pregnancy misery and suddenly wake up and make an appointment for an abortion like it was a pedicure.
2. I explained that the vast majority of abortions are first term, and later term abortions are usually due to fetal anomalies incompatible with life.
3. Continuing a pregnancy and raising a child with disabilities can bankrupt a family, and state help isn't consistent between states.
4. I don't want a Washington lawyer who doesn't know the ok of pregnancy, like what an ectopic pregnancy is, making that decision for me and my doctor.
5. If the government can tell you that you must have a baby, then they eventually will have the power to tell you that you can't.
6. I claimed the "prolife" mantle, explaining I am for a woman and her family making these decisions, not the government.

He had an enlightened look on his face.
