This is a petty rant but who cares - obnoxious girl from my club is going to the national comp eeeergh! Why do you want to ruin this for everyone! People can barely tolerate you here and now you want to take your attention seeking shitshow interstate? It's like a nightmare and I can't wake up.

Finally get the sewer issues somewhat resolved (parts of the house still smell like a porta potty), and tonight the cat drops a toy down the shower drain. Two doses of Drano and a pipe snake later, and the shower is still blocked. I can't say 100& its a toy, but I'm thinking it might be.

Oh Dew! What a nightmare!

You can always detach the pipe connecting to the drain and manually clean out the blockage. A plumber will do the job for you if you're not a hands-on kind of person or lack the know-how but I'm not sure what they might charge for this kind of service.

It's down the shower drain, so it's somewhere in the network or piping that runs behind the walls, in the in between area of the second story floor and the first floor ceiling. I'm not sure how we could get to it, even if we knew precisely where it was, without tearing out flooring or ceiling.

Day before yesterday, my cat was fine, other than having lost a bit of weight. Now she's in the hospital barely alive hooked up to IVs. I don't understand how it happened and honestly, I don't think the vet does either. It all happened so fast and they aren't sure what it really is.
I'm scared she'll die or that we'll run out of credit cards before they can save her.

I hope I don't come off sounding transphobic or the like, but I need to vent. I have a friend who I've known as female for many years, up until about about a month ago now where I learned they were gender-fluid during one of their streams. I support this, though it came as a shock mostly out of selfishness and I found myself wondering why they hadn't told me about it despite being comfortable enough to announce it while streaming. About a week later I then find out they are considering reassignment and was already working on ways to deepen their voice.

Something just cracked in me hearing that. Again largely because I felt like I was being left out and worried that, had he not mentioned it, I wouldn't have found out until it happened. But also because I'm scared I'll lose him as a friend. The friend I knew them as. And I fucking hate myself for it. I love and support anyone who identifies as the opposite, both or neither sex and if they want to go through the process of changing. So why do I feel so fucking hurt about this?

I did manage, mostly on accident due to twitchy fingers, to send him a message detailing my fears and feelings. He responded, we had a good chat about it and I do feel better to the point that I am mostly, but not completely, happy to call him by male pronouns now. Yet every time he mentions it on stream, every time he mentions trying to deepen his voice it upsets me. I don't understand why beyond being jealous of his current voice, which I find cute and beautiful. Why do I still feel like he'll become someone else? That I'll lose my friend? Fuck I hate myself.

Vare- I'm of the firm belief that you can't always control how you feel about something right off the bat. Things changing can be hard to handle and things like transphobia, homophobia, racism, etc are all deeply culturally ingrained- it's VERY hard to stop thinking under a lens at least somehow affected by any number of those things. Plus, when you've known and relied on a friend being one way for a long time, it doesn't seem outlandish to be thrown off balance when something changes.

That is to say- it doesn't make you a bad person for feeling bad about it! It would be bad if you rejected him, or told him he's wrong or that he can't be trans / refused to use his correct pronouns- but those are all actions and that's the key difference. You can't always control how you feel, but you CAN control how you react to those feelings. Right now, it looks like you're trying to combat them and figure out where those feelings are coming from so you stop feeling that way. That's a good thing, and a great way to respond to realizing you feel something you don't logically agree with. You're trying to understand what's going on so you can stop feeling that way in the future.

So you're not a bad person! :hug: You're trying your best to combat something internal, and that's hard as hell, and incredibly frustrating. You got this.

Thank you, Lupis :hug: I'm just tired of losing friends for stupid reasons.

I'm grateful that I've had the warning/build up this time though; there was another streamer I used to watch a few years ago who I'd stopped watching because of gender-reassignment and it not clicking with me. But in that regard I'd only recently found her while she was male and had absolutely no idea of her plans. She'd stopped streaming for a month or so then suddenly came back female and I could not register why. I had to stop watching her because it bothered me so much. I don't want it to happen with my friend too. I hate that it bothers me despite being okay with it.

In a weird way it makes me wish I could relate/have similar thoughts about myself. Heck I've been toying with either making one of my characters intersex or have PMDS (persistent müllerian duct syndrome, wherein said duct in a male fetus does not break down and forms a womb).

There is nothing wrong with being bothered by something. I went through the exact same thing with a high school friend. Supporting them is the best thing to do BUT that I think depends on how they act also.I had to break ties with my high school friend after they transitioned because they did nothing but complain and be generally rude to cis and straight people. I do mean really rude. It was super hard to do I loved them as a friend and hell I gave them money for meds back when I couldn't really afford it.


You are honestly doing the best thing you can do.

Thanks for the support guys :hug: I'd rather be happy for him but if being sad and confused is the "correct" way then it brings me some peace. Plus it will be some time before the procedure so I've got time to think about it.

I'm sorry you had to go through that, Cow, and I'm grateful that you shared it with me. Some people just want to take advantage of everything they can and it's horrible. I hope you were able to bounce back from that experience.

Sudden feeling of inadequacy hearing friends say certain things to and greeting other friends in a special way and wondering why they don't say it to me. I love doubting it when people tell me they consider me a friend just because of shit like this.

Still not done packing and the movers are coming tomorrow...but my sisters dogs ruined my mattress last night so that's one less thing to have to take. I'm more upset that I think the dogs are sick and she adopted a special needs cat who is not doing well either. Now instead of finishing packing I have to rush the dogs to the vet. My head might just explode at some point. It's just me here to handle all this while she's at work. One disabled woman can't take care of her five animals and finishing packing the entire house. :cry:

Rant reinstated! She's going again! Even though she has no job and defriended that entire group on facebook (and her only friend isn't going) like why? No one's going to want to socialize with you and it's just going to be awkward af! I think this nutjob is giving me an ulcer.

Edit: Found out she's gone into $1,500 credit card debt to come and has no job! What! Why? Talk about irresponsible :/

I was in a group to kill Soundless. Some random horde hunter tries to tame it infront of 40+ people between the horde and alliance groups patiently waiting to pull it. I immediately get kicked from the group and blamed.

I'm alliance. I had a pet out so I couldn't even remotely attempt to tame. I was still sitting on my mount when the horde started taming it. Plus I would never do something so stupid. Sometimes people make me sad. So quick to just blame the first person of the same class without actually knowing who the true culprit was. I could understand if it was another alliance hunter in our group that tried to tame it and someone mistakenly thinking it was me. But it's quite easy on pve servers to see the hunter was of the other faction. It was even standing with the horde group.

It just makes me angry at the horde hunter for being such a jerk. People like that are what give hunters a bad name. I understand Soundless is a unique skin to tame. But, taming infront of two raid groups waiting to kill it for the mount when it has a huge respawn timer is really stupid. Find a friend to pull you to an RP or dead server and tame it there or wait until the wee hours of the morning when nobody is around and tame it. I had to wait to 3am to get my Packmother tame because I refused to tame her if there were people actively wanting to kill her. She doesn't even have a bad spawn timer either it's just common courtesy.

Soundless is a rare that shouldn't be tamable. As for it having a unique skin, just give it to something else.
