So. Ya'll know that radio silence post about the weird and wacky and crappy stuff that's been going on in the life of D? Well. Heh. So. My father fell on Friday and it's a fucking miracle he didn't crack his head open on the door on the way down. He's stiff and sore and can barely walk now, due to bruises and a nasty turned ankle. The one aunt that was making Very Stupid Life Choices can't apparently get out of bed due to a hip problem and my mother's OTHER sister had a freak accident and is now blind.

SO! Thanks universe. Just. Like, I get the fact that life isn't fair, I do, really. There is no reason for you to rub it in my face like I'm a puppy that's had an accident inside the house. Seriously.

I am SO VERY HAPPY I have alcohol in this house. JFC.

So, this radio silence...


So. After receiving some lovely emails (and some not so lovely but hah, I'm ignoring those) I realized I've been pretty damn radio silent since bitching about home life a while ago.

What's been going on that could strip me away from writing? Well. Here's the long version. Under the cut.

Apartment living, revisited


The joys of apartment living, revisited:

I think someone tried to break in, today. I was in the bedroom when I heard - I swear to god - like someone was at the door, fucking with the lock. I thought, for a crazy moment, it might have been Himself, but he works late on Fridays. So it wasn’t him. And I had gotten a strange call from the buzzer not a half hour before, asking for someone who did most emphatically not live here. So yeah. Weird. I now have my butcher’s knife next to me and won’t feel secure until Himself comes home. Fun days. Didn’t call the police, because what am I going to say? I heard a weird noise and was too chicken to look outside? And I’m a goddamn foot shorter than the peephole so I couldn’t see jack? Yeah, that wouldn’t have flown.

*sigh* And this AFTER I see the flyer from the apt management stressing people to not allow the outer doors to be propped open because there have been “issues”. Fun days, yo. Fun days.

Why I hate apt living reason #409


Because I just had a five minute coughing session and mild allergic reaction to whatever the hell the downstairs neighbors were burning. Pretty sure it wasn’t drugs, more like some idiot trying to BBQ and not knowing how. Just the scent of the smoke made me choke, made my whole upper chest seize. I haven’t had an attack like this since I was fucking 12. Then my sinuses decided to swell, and I can’t tell if it’s because they’re going holy-fuck-gimme-liquid or if I’m actually having a reaction and not just an asthma attack.

So yeah. Lots of fun for D tonight. Couldn’t breathe - literally could.not.breathe. To the point where Himself was pulling on shoes to drag me to the ER. Sadly my shitty health insurance would break us if I went, soooo yeah. Nope. Not going.

I foresee theraflu in my future for the moment, since we don’t seem to have any benedryl in the house. *sigh* *gently, so I don’t start coughing. Again. Because every time I take in a breathe that’s quicker than a meditation breath, I feel my chest catch and the urge to cough comes back. FML*
