    Lately things seem to be sucking. On the 27th my cat ran away, and then this morning while I was directing traffic around my new broken down car, I got a call saying that his collar was found without him. Keep in mind that I tend to connect better with animals than I do humans, and he is also my primary relief for anxiety/paranoia. I've been so on edge since he ran off that I feel like any little thing could set me off at this point.

    Unfortunately I can't really help you much here, but to say one thing: Think about the things that are ok (if nothing else you might be physically healthy and this might be every important thing to have. I know it because i am now in pain for a month) and don't let your guard down on being sucked into the black hole of despair. Take a walk, go out for a beer for a change (only if you don't drink regularly!!!) or we can drink together on-line.
    Be well man and good luck!

    Hope your buddy comes home soon.
    I had a dog that would disappear anytime there were fireworks and return when all was clear.
    I ended up having to keep her in a week before the 4th until a day or two after of I'd loose her for that time. Poor girl.


    Stay strong brother and best wishes.

    As said above, best wishes and I hope your little one comes home soon. The New Year causes a lot of stress sometimes. There's always this feeling of wanting to do more and perform better then you did in the previous year (at least in my case). I always gave myself New Years resolutions and this year I decided against it. I say try and appreciate what you have accomplished this year and pat yourself on the back. Remind yourself that your doing great and you will get through these things that make you stronger and make sure you think about all the good things you've done lately.

    From your recent threads i've read you seem to have been very busy with your new job and growing the edible mushrooms. That's cool stuff! :)

    When I was living with my friend our cat also disappeared. We found him 3 months later all beaten up and sick.
    I believe your cat is still alive?
    Have you tried putting notifications with your cats pictures around the neighbourhood? That might do the trick ;)

    Anyways, best wishes to you and your family!
    An your cat of course :hatsoff:

    I have some food and water outside the door along with a bag of his used kitty litter, hoping the familiar scents will lure him back. I've spent most of the day reading and spawning oyster jars and getting fuel pellets ready for my shiitake jars just to try and keep my mind off him. Unfortunately it looks like I'll be here all day going crazier since I have no way to get to work tomorrow. About the only really good news I've had today is that my apprentice's monotubs are taking off, he sent me a picture of the B+ tub I got him started on, and there's actually a giant one that's trying to push the lid off.

    I was just informed that I no longer have a job thanks to the car breaking down. I missed 1 fucking day of work, and let them know well before hand that I couldn't arrange a ride. I also let them know I made arrangements to be there tomorrow, and they were cool with that. THIS IS FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!

    Dang..I don't know what to say bro. You seem to be on a binge of bad luck lately.

    Hang in there.

    Texting my psychiatrist now. I'm about to lose my fucking mind. Every time I try to work towards making good things happen, and try to make this world a better place in my own way, that fucking nasty whore Karma decides to give me someone else's curb stomp. I am fucking sick of this bullshit, what is the point in even trying to get anywhere when all roads lead to the same shit hole you crawled out of?

    What does not kill you makes you stronger...or stranger...I have yet to figure that out.

    All jokes aside sometimes life just has a way of shitting directly on to your head for no apparent reason. You just have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, regroup and keep on fighting the good fight, things will turn around for those who put in the effort and always strive to better themselves.

    I know the feeling brother. I had $1600 worth of tools stolen from me, had my hours cut, and lost a promotion all within a 1 week period...that was a VERY tough pill to swallow and it sucked hard...Sometimes shit just happens, have to try your best to brush it off.

    Got some more wonderful news, the mechanic is now saying my car can't be fixed. I'm willing to bet that if I went to a golf course holding a club in the air during a thunderstorm right now, I'd be the only son of a bitch that didn't get hit by lightning.

    I only talked to you a few times Death, and you seem like a very intelligent person to me. I was there as well and the best thing that could happen to me is that they let me go. No job is permanent anymore. I know you are in college and to be honest, that's the best place to be for you. I can tell you are pretty serious about that direction. Once you can transfer to the bigger university, you can do work studies and get paid, it's not a lot, but you can get paid. Maybe with the credits you do have, they will accept you and transfer you over? If not, maybe there is a job there for you. Custodial or something. As far as cats go and animals, it's tough when they leave. My best friend was a cat as well and that was really hard on me. Keep that head up brother and don't get down too bad. Take a few days and focus on what you need to do, not what you can't do. Don't quit school, worst mistake you can do. If you need help with financial aid questions ask me I know the system very well or find somebody who can. Good luck!

    Yeah, kinda sucks. I spent New Years Day at the hospital because I got bitch slapped with fists to many times:p I had headaches for days. That was...interesting to start off with..like "yeah great" and then I have to find some job on top of that, but I am so fucking broken down by shit. Its like my life is fucking still born:(:p We keeop trying, but the disease makes it hard (the autism) on me and I keep hitting these damn walls. Its not easy.

    However, I have learned a lesson: Stop being such a pest to people and treat them better (from the beating). It was like "dude, you gotta learn a lesson..BAM!" in my head.

    I kind of realized what a shithead I had been and for no reason and I kept trying to weed out the anger and its so darn hard. Its funny I kept displacing it because I wasnt angry at the people who hit me. I am angry at myself. How did this shit go so far.

    And lately my grows just fucked up :( Cant seem to make it work. Its kind of hard sometimes.

    I wish you the best Deathryder, I know I have been a bit of a pest but its nice to hear from you:) *hug*
