I catch it on TCM late at night. I'm a big Art Carney fan, and H&T makes me cry. I recommend it wholeheartedly!
Great to see you all
The admins said to head on over to The Lounge and introduce yourself once you sign up, so I am here to say hello!
This is a homecoming of sorts for me, since I was a long-term member, but fell away for some years.
I decided to return because of the great people, and I needed a community of like-minded people again to give me hope and light at the end of the tunnel with Trump's Presidency, and all of the ongoing horror that entails.
I am happy to see a lot of usernames I remember. I see DU is still the same great place, and I look forward to moving through Trump, his loss in November, and everyone moving forward with President Biden. I want to be here for that sweet, sweet moment.
So, hello again, missed you, and am glad to be back. Cheers!
The shelter emailed me back-Jocelyn is doing great in her new home and they're sending me her picture. This makes me feel better. I will continue to sponsor cats. When you sponsor, you send $25 per cat and your name goes on her enclosure. I'm so happy for her!
Hi all: I am new to this forum. I was on DU for years, years ago, but fell away. I am glad to be back, and glad there is a safe space like this.
I suffer from bipolar, depression, and anxiety. I am under the care of a psychiatrist and psychologist, who are both very good. I take medications as prescribed and try very hard to function. My job is very stressful, and I am considering going on SSDI soon. I have worked full time many years, and my doctors think it may be best for my health to be on disability.
I really have no one else to talk to about this. I love animals, and support cat-charities. This entails sponsoring a cat at my usual cat charity. I regularly visit the website to view the cats, and if I see one that "speaks to me", I sponsor them. If I win a lotto, I will donate enough to have them build a new wing!
I saw this cat a few weeks ago, and I really wanted to adopt her. This wonderful, no-kill shelter is about two hours away from me, in the same state, but I would have happily traveled to adopt this older cat, abandoned, with trauma issues from being discarded by a previous owner. I just fell in love with her! I have one cat I love who is FIV+ , and our vet made us promise to not get a second cat. So, we promised.
My sponsored cat was adopted a few days ago. I am so happy she found a home at age 8- she has a funny little face with her tongue hanging out all the time. But I just am heartbroken. I really wanted to adopt her. I keep thinking about this, and it is making me sad.
So, while I am happy for her that she has a forever home, I am so sad that it is not with me, and I keep thinking about this. I also have OCD. I am trying to take my mind off this, and am glad a terrible situation (abandonment of cat, being rescued and taken to this great cat shelter, being sponsored, and finally finding a home) turned out great for the cat.
This has never happened before. I told my psychologist about this, and he was very sympathetic to me.
Thanks for listening. I feel really sad and empty tonight, and also feel like a crazy person for feeling like this.

About XanaDUer2I was a member since the beginning of DU, but drifted away. During Trump, I decided to come back to the community of like-minded people for support and hope. In my last iteration here, I hit 10,000 posts, but will start again!
