Worst Week I've had. Fish with Dropsy.

This even tops the shooting.

So at the beginning of this week my computer broke and I can't afford to get a new one. The next day my iPod broke causing 2 mental breakdowns because I need my technology. I'm typing on a Kindle Fire because scant get a computer or anything for MONTHS. So I'm stuck with this.

Then my first Betta, Milo, got Dropsy. His eyes are swollen, Gray belly, bloated belly and little bloating behind it, and he's starting to pinecone. As if it couldn't get worse. I don't need help with treatment, I know how :). I've put some Epsom salt in but I'm about to go get another quarantine tank.

Other things happened but it's not something you post on bettafish lol.

THEN my parents said they're leaving the whole weekend. (Good or bad? Lol)

Sorry to play the complaining card but I've got to get it off my chest.

Aww, man, I'm sorry you're in such a rough spot. You need to find yourself some chocolate ice cream and lemonade and binge-watch some TV or something. Or go do yoga, or see a movie by yourself, or paint your nails, or take stupid internet quizzes, or learn to do something new, or read a bunch of awful romance novels.

Alternately, just watch this video of a kitten making friends with a hedgehog. You'll feel better, I promise.

Suggestion: get a netbook instead of a laptop? I found you one for about $100.

http://www.amazon.com/10-Inch-Netboo.../dp/B001BY97IU

Eee PCs are pretty decent computers. They're small and they don't have a DVD or CD drive, but my first personal portable computer was an Eee PC, and it lasted me two or three years. Plus they're easy to carry around!

Here's a nicer-looking one for a little more cash.

Here's one for a hundred in white.

Not what I'm looking for but thank you, it doesn't have enough storage but thank you for all the suggestions.

Milo's pineconing has gone down and I can see his bloat dropping a little bit! I added a few extra things to his treatment and the Dropsy is starting to go away a little bit. :D

Lol I'm listening to Let it Go (so overrated).

I'm treating Milo more in a few minutes c: he gets better and a little more active every day.
