Recovering from a nasty bug, probably strep or some such, and last night at 10PM or so, a giant tree fell, blocking the road, crashing my fence, taking out power for me and those past me on the grid. Five hours it took the utilities guys to get it removed and restore power to everybody but me! They banged on my door at 3:30AM to tell me. The tree yanked the power weatherhead and seal out of my roof. Has to be fixed by an electrician.
Without electricity, I have no water. Without the water pump, the 17-18 cats I care for have none. And whatnot.
Loads of fun. I took pics but they're on my cell and I don't yet know how to upload. Will figure that out and upload when I come back into the light. Heheh.

I'm still very low, tired, and coughing up shit but am much better ... and I think my friend got it far worse than me. I feel very tired of the world's wrongs. I should say human wrongs. I don't mind trees falling. What I mind is a utility company placing the pole and power line UNDER that tree (which was there before the pole was put in and long leaning over the lines, which I had asked them to move) and then telling me I had to pay for the lines being yanked out of my roof. And so on. Neighbors who think they have a constitutional right to leave their dogs out barking, or to hit their dogs for picking up a stick but think it's okay to wander onto my property as long as they are leashed. I mean WTF.

I hear you. Today, got a knock at 9AM. The city was notifying us water would be shut off for untold hours todsy..ok...so I said when will it be back? Maybe before days end. My issue, the leak in question was roped off with caution tape for two days because the city didn't want to pay overtime while thousands of gallons gushed away. And come Monday then they want to do it. With elderly on the street, and I'm sitting here. Rare genetic disorder requiring I have access to water and bsthroom. My disease makes me pee a lot and I'm just totally freaking done. When can I move out to the country!!!??? Grrrrrr

Jyn VanBergen my life keeps going like this. Thoughts are dark, options are few, suicide and depression are a constant

Meg, I don't like to hear that. Makes me very sad. Life is hard. Gotta be kind to yourself. You should be on disability really, Meg, so you can enjoy life and sustain it, not suffer.
