I wonder if they recognize the harm they have caused "humoring him" now?
Ph (-), pain
I think my back is finally done with my shit. After 9 months of sleeping on an air mattress to make sure I can stay distanced from my immuno compromised partner my back issues that started when I was in the navy have gotten to a point where I can barely move. No lumbar support have basically collapsed and compressed part of my spine so it pinches several nerves almost constantly. So that's fun.
So everything sucks. Took the week off for my birthday and instead of getting any rest I have to be on hand to take care if others. Tell my partner and my brother that I'm stressed out and could use some help. Get told that sucks when are you doing chores and making dinner. So I've spent the week getting even deeper into depression, stress eating, and hating myself and everything that I am. It's great. Even got my old brainwashing back. Ship, shipmate, self... what fun
COVID business casualty
I just learned the AFK Tavern in Everett had to close permanently in part due to COVID. I'm sorry to hear this because when I moved here almost two years ago this was one of the places I scoped out as a place to go once we met people to hang out with in the area. Never got a chance to go due to mental health barriers. And now I won't get the chance. Unfortunate.
So today I get to run a short dnd game for one of my clients to celebrate them leaving service due to successful completion. Traditionally the team puts together some type of celebration for the client when they transition out. They get to choose things like theme or venue within reason. This client just wanted to play a session with the team. So today I get to herd cats for work. :)
