I fear they will push an eating disorder diagnose on me.. Obesity is not recongnize as a disease in Denmark. Its only ppls own fault even if you suffer from a hormon disease like me. Denmark only have one official politics for obisity.. if you are fat , you are lazy, umotivated and too stupid to loose weight.. I been fighting the system for more than 9 hours on this..

Just came back home. The interview had a lot of questions and lasted for 2 hours. The doctor was kind but it really took alot of my health bar to be there. Im totally busted.
They want to discuss ny case so I dont know what they decide.
Glad it was a real GP doctor though

Fingers crossed for you tarn.

My new rant, we had moved an air conditioner (new in box, to be installed in the spring) and a bunch of tools to the front porch because of the flood and resultant ripping up of floors, walls, ceilings, etc. The ac and a bunch of tools are now gone. Let's be honest, we won't be getting them back. The AC is basically a must in the heat of the south, and we had worked hard to save up to buy it. We're in even worse shape financially now, and the tools aren't cheap either. It wasn't the brightest idea to store them there, but we didn't have much choice.

I don't know if this is actually a rant or a LOL. We still have no shower water. My husband has been trying to fix it. No shower, but the toilet is now filled with HOT water, so I guess we can bathe in that???

Oh no Dew :( I'm so sorry you're still experiencing so much shit from the flood :(

And that's awful Bowno, I hope whatever is wrong is an easy fix, like loose battery terminal or something.

A few ppl been asking on how Im doing so i thought I log in and post instead of letting my wife do it.
I had a 4 x bypass. After that I sadly got Diabetisk ketoacidose and was in hospital for 24 days.
It's been almost a year now (was in marts/april 2020) and my hear now pump at around 35%. Og will never get better than that.
I dont have any energy as I dont get blood and oxygen transfered quickly enough through my system due to my heart only working at less than half capacity.
Besides that I have some serious side effects from my diabetes. One of them is neuropati. I have pain 24hours a day.
Beside that I struggle with mental health problems. I have various diagnoses and it's just hard.
I wont be returning to petopia forums as I used to.
Sorry my spelling and gramma

Not sure if rant or just concern, but a co-worker of mine has tested positive for Covid. I've been in direct contact with her through work. Guess now I wait and see.

A few days ago I lost my best friend suddenly. He'd seemed healthy for all the times I'd spoken with him so it came as a complete shock and wouldn't be until shortly after that I'd get an idea as to why it might have happened.

We'd been struggling to get Heroic Stone Legion down for the last few weeks. That day, we finally managed through sheer luck. It was the last pull of the raid time so we'd stopped and he'd gone into a private channel with the other guild officers. From what I was told he'd spoken a few times then suddenly went quiet. He never joined us outside the channel. None of us thought much of it at first as he was prone to randomly falling asleep (the clue I was given) and pulling all-nighters. We all thought he'd simply fallen asleep at the keyboard again.

Yesterday I was running Torghast with my friend's sister, along with another group friend. We'd been joking about my best friend falling asleep and discussed how long it should be before we call for a wellness check. The other friend worried me by saying that my best friend had slammed his desk hard once we'd beaten Stone Legion, suggesting he might have gotten into trouble with his neighbour and/or landlord. Then suddenly his sister says the police are at her house.

All we know is it wasn't Human Malware and that the neighbour had gone to investigate the bang when they found him. My hint was the fact he randomly fell asleep and apparently had been doing so for some time. I'd not had a clue as we'd gone distant for a while, only finding each other again late last year. He'd also mentioned a hospital appointment but never said what it was for. I have a sinking feeling that I know why now.

Not long before he'd been teasing me about us living together as he had a spare room in his apartment. I was strongly considering it once all the crud had come to an end.

Rest in peace my dear friend. For all the stupid things you'd done you were a wonderful person and will be greatly missed.

Rest in peace Stephen Foster aka Lukahn, Kamaryn, Lalaesa and many others. You were a dear friend and will be greatly missed.

Me and the rest of my workplace is pissed off. Our city (perth) has gone into 5 day lockdown because someone with the UK Variant of covid has been out and about in the city with it. Our workplace was told to go into the office because our department is "essential" but our area really isn't. I'm going to have f all to do all day and really think travelling into the city in the first place is going against the whole purpose of this lockdown because some managers can't think for themselves.
