Cliche, but it's a kitten.

Morgan's brother made a suicide attempt. We flew out to California to visit him in the hospital (they have him on a psychiatric hold, it seems), but he's refusing all visitors.

Sorry to hear that, Val. My best to Morgan and his family, and my wish that his brother will accept and get the help he needs.

@Val: I hope he’ll be able to handle seeing people before you have to go back. I can easily imagine that one would not want to see anyone soon after an attempt, even if one understands that the visitors are a positive thing to have.

Morgan's brother is out of the hospital and he's been referred to a psychologist. I'm going to try to head back to Kentucky ASAP because my job may or may not be in jeopardy from how suddenly I left...

Heading back to Kentucky Sunday. It sounds like my job is technically safe, but management is not happy with me.

Well, it was a family emergency. I hope that they understand even if they aren't exactly happy with the sudden departure. I wouldn't be happy in that situation either, but I'd understand.

Took my sisters to the dentist for an appointment. Turns out their insurance doesn't work. My mom, dropping the ball on her children's basic needs? Shocking. :roll:

*hugs* sorry Val

I've been having some trouble with reality lately. It started with a dream that had me thinking I was losing it until I finally woke up, Sunday afternoon. It rather shook me. Essentially it included exaggerated versions of symptoms I already exhibit regularly, but are not out of the realm of possibility. Yesterday I woke up having doubts about reality. It was enough to make me cry a little over not knowing what to do, but overall was mostly just ideas. Today I had a strong sense that this wasn't real. It... made it difficult to proceed with the day and I cried most of the way to work. It really didn't help that I kept automatically slipping into other worlds when I closed my eyes. I ... entertained the idea of suicide as a way of waking up. The feeling that all this wasn't real kind of faded this afternoon but left me with the doubts. I mean, maybe this is real, but maybe the times I feel like it's not are when I'm almost waking up. I'm also considering the progression. If it's even worse tomorrow morning, maybe I'll actually wake up? In the case that it is real, I'm not sure how to get better. A little Googling led me to a name that I'm not entirely sure fits but happens to be caused by things like anxiety, migraines, depression, lack of sleep, and other stuff. So... maybe I'm just over stressed and I definitely haven't been getting enough sleep. I haven't had a full weekend to myself for a month and my Sundays that I've had to myself have been spent almost entirely relaxing without getting anything done. Oh, and thanks to Lia, arte, and others for trying to help

The person I wanted to date turned out to be an abusive controller. DX Why me?

Through my own stupidity I overdrew my checking account. Pay day was yesterday and I may go in the negative again before next payday. I just wish someone would kill me because I obviously can't handle playing at adulthood. I have to see what I can do *sighs*

Plenty of well-qualified adults will overdraw checking accounts, or other financial slip-ups. I've forgotten to pay bills before, realized (or been told... :( ) a while later. To that end, adulthood has always seemed to me process-based, rather than results-based. It isn't about the result of never-being-overdrawn or not making mistakes, it's about the process seeing-what-you-can-do. Still, I know this stuff isn't easy, so good luck.
