    My hands and wrists had been feeling tender, but my left wrist hurt so bad tonight I haven’t been able to sleep. Baby holding + bad phone ergonomics.

    My wrists have always been stupidly sensitive to strain but I developed pretty bad tendonitis when C1 was a babe. I had to wear braces all day for a while, then at night for even longer to get them (especially left) to calm down, but it did work. Now I’m conscious of how I sleep to keep them straight and that helps a ton. But ofc now carting C2 around it’s started to hurt again.
    Tldr; I feel your pain. :cry:

    I’m sorry that’s been an issue for you. It blows.

    I'm angry crying. It pisses me off and hurts my soul that I can never live in Texas again in peace. I already kinda understood that after watching how the pandemic unfolded there, but the abortion law really nailed that coffin shut. It's a nonissue today, but there was always a little whisper of hope for way later. Nope.

    Those fuckers really want to make this country Gilead.

    J’s uncle has been waiting on a double lung transplant for a while now (from work related lung damage). He heard yesterday that a set of lungs became available and to prepare for the transplant today. We’re not sure what happened, but it’s now not going to happen. I think people were starting to lose hope that he was going to find a donor so to think he got one then lose it is just such a blow. I’m so sad for him.

    I'm sorry Bug. That would be such a huge blow. I hope another set becomes available soon. Maybe the doctors discovered the lungs weren't in good condition? Still very deflating though.

    That's so crushing @Imabug1002 . Fingers crossed for him.

    So the lungs had an unforeseen issue and couldn’t be used. I guess it’s better it was the donor lungs and not him. Hopefully it’s a good sign though that he’s high on the waiting list and could be getting some soon. Thanks for the kind thoughts.

    I’m sorry about that huge disappointment. I hope some lungs become available for him soon.

    This job is the first job I’ve ever had where my employer waits until 1/31 to give us our W-2’s. Some years, I didn’t get it until after 1/31. :angry: It really pisses me off because Ryan already has his and we want to file our taxes as soon as the window opens. I don’t know how W-2’s are generated but it seems like it would be fairly automated? Sometimes I really hate this district.

    Well, yes but you work for the the most inefficient government bureaucracies in the world. W2s can be automated, but then they get check by in-house accountants before they get ran up the flagpole, signed off on, and sent out. Of course the state isn’t as effective as Ryan’s Fortune 50 employer.

    Ha yeah. Another reason I can’t wait to get out of education.

    Maybe this is more of a whine but whatever. I want to get a doll that looks Filipino, which I know is hyper specific, so I'm open to even just a vague resemblance. I also don't want to spend a ton of money on this. Three hours of internet searching later, yeah I found something BUT THREE HOURS WTF?

    I either have food poisoning, flu, or covid. Whatever it is, I've been nauseated all day and got hit hard and fast with moderate aches and fever. I just want to cry from misery.

    I am, once again, going through the “is my sore throat from Covid or too much weed” inner monologue.
