Apologies for the dumb question. I'm just discovering this treasure trove. Can I print any of these out and disperse them? And would that apply to everything in this part of the forum? Also, there's a small typo on the 4th page near the bottom - "... trying to explain to it people ...."

Breathe. You can't tear down the world if you stop breathing, so breathe.

You haven't won and you may never win and you aim so high you know you'll never get there and you have to stop beating yourself while you're down or you'll never get up you have to breathe.

This world will kill you, it will tear you in half and grind you to paste. Your hopes and dreams are handles sticking out of your forehead and the fates or some other assholes will use those handles to steer you like a wagon and if you give up caring about things it won't get any better and you can survive this and maybe help a little and it will hurt but you have to breathe.

There's glass in your lungs and poison in your veins and everything you love will die in the end. The sun will explode and galaxies will collide and the universe will die a slow, boring death and there's nothing to be done about the laws of physics but that is trillions of years from now and you can only do something about now and it matters, you matter, you have to breathe.

You don't have to make peace with it and you don't have to accept it and you don't have to stop being the kid who would cry at a mall opening you don't have to be perfect you can't be perfect you just have to keep trying and breathe.

I love you. Breathe.

BY THE TIME I GOT TO THE END, I WAS BREATHING LIKE MICHAEL MOORE

ALSO  :mittens: IT'S BEAUTIFUL.

So...my mother works as a matron at a boarding school (far away from the one I'm currently at).

At wakeup call this morning, she found one of the students dead.  How was not mentioned to me, but because of the age and sudden nature, there will possibly be an inquest.

Fuck, I missed this. I'm sorry Cain. I hope your mother is fine. And I hope they find out what happened.






Cainad: You said it was unintentional, but are you sure there were no moderate changes to your diet? Reduction or removal of anything specific? Also, my weight is incredibly unstable. I gain or lose 20 lbs bi-monthly, depending entirely on absolutely no pattern I can identify. My first thought wouldn't be to assume a serious problem. But difference in age may explain that. I'm 20. I don't know how old you are.

Holy shit, Cainad and Cain.  Hope things go okay.

Police were none the wiser.

Well, Cainad. I've checked WebMD, and it appears you're probably going to be fine. Except for the fact that you're probably going to die a long, painful death. My condolences.
I'd make preparations soon.



On the topic of health, should it be of any concern that I've eaten a meatball sub that had a foam plate melted to it in the microwave? Peeling off the part of the bread that had the foam on it was going to take too long, so I just left it on there. I just remembered that people told me the foam is toxic.

PeeDee, I have lost 20 pounds (1.8 Celsius) between January and the beginning of April, unintentionally. I am led to believe that this represents a potentially serious health concern. I'm going through the rigamarole of getting to see a primary care physician, but if I went to an urgent care clinic would they be able to get bloodwork done faster? Also, do I have some kind of cancer-AIDS?

My understanding is that both urgent care and primary care have to send stuff to a lab, maybe the same lab, depending on location.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope it's just a tapeworm or some other horrible, treatable parasite.

Given the timeframe of the weight loss, I wouldn't stress about the waiting to get tests done part unless you're talking weeks to even see a doctor. (Not medical advice, I am not a physician, etc.)

Much thanks. I definitely expect any nearby clinics to send blood to the same lab, I'm just starting to get antsy. I missed my appointment on Friday and was rescheduled for next Friday.

I didn't really notice a problem until it started affecting my martial arts training. I got weaker and weaker, and then I started vomiting after heavy calisthenics. Not going back until I know where the fuck my already meager muscles went.
