Fun little trick I learned in therapy: validation. When someone is upset, don’t try to fix the problem, point out the cause, or tell them it could be worse. Just validate their emotions. Be like, ‘shit yeah man, that sucks. I’m sorry you’re going through that. I’m here for you.’ That’s literally all you have to do to make them feel better. Thank you and goodnight.
Gonna try not to spam this. But for those that don’t know, my girlfriend has Multiple Sclerosis and has been out of work for several months. Due to this, she has racked up some hefty medical bills, and we can’t even make the…
Please Signal boost the hell out of this!
This is my boo Dave (knockingonvalhallasdoor) trying a last ditch effort to get us some cash. I haven’t been able to work in about 4-6 months (I don’t recall the exact date but I’ve got it written down someplace) because my multiple sclerosis and fibromyalgia have blown pretty out of control lately. Dave doesn’t have a job. I’m trying to go back to school, he’s already still in school, and basically everything is terrible.
Any little bit helps. And I don’t want to offend anyone by posting this. I’m just scared and on a lot of medications i am terrified of suddenly being forced into withdrawal over all at once. Anything helps, you guys, and thank you for reading.
Jenna added to this, and clarified some issues. I’ll try to only post this like 3 times a day during peak hours. I’m sorry if this is annoying any followers but I need goddamn help and I know you guys will do what you can to donate and spread the word.
I’m still hoping to reach enough people that can help us. The last few days have been really rough and I’ve honestly been selling my stuff for us to even eat. I’ve sold most of our dvd’s, about half the cd’s (I have hard copied of all the things I really like) and almost all of my bookshelf except my favorites. I’m really shook up about this and don’t want to have to do this, but I don’t see any other way. I’m literally sick over the books especially. :(
And then there’s going to be the fun of withdrawing from all of my medications all at once, which will probably land me in the hospital, which is gonna be even more awesome because another bill.
If you can help, in any way at all, even a couple dollars, I would be so grateful I can’t even begin to explain. I’ve never found myself in this situation and it’s really stressing out my already run down and painful body. I don’t want to drive any of you away from my blog or friendship or anything. It just sucks.
Too busy with work and getting publishing stuff done. Electric Time is now available on Amazon and I just have one last check and the print version will be ready too. No links as I’m on my phone now.
I also got the proofreading changes into Child of Spring and almost cried on the last couple of pages. I am officially a sap. Child of Spring should be up by the weekend as well. :D
Got the feedback on my class cover and he liked it! Only a couple of little tweaks to recommend. That makes me happy especially since he said I have a good eye. 8D
I’ll try to remember to post it so everyone can see it.
One set of exercises but the hubby and I walked about a mile and a half to try to stretch his leg out. It’s been giving him fits.
No knitting either since I was in a food coma after dinner.
Tomorrow the goals are write (a lot!), exercises, knitting, pick blueberries and make chocolate chip cookies for the hubby. At least blueberry season should be winding down soon.
Now it’s bath and bed time so goodnight everyone.
