AlwaysBettaLover, whilst I do think some people were being inexcusably rude, you were sharing incorrect information. That alarms people, because that's exactly what this site doesn't stand for. I can tell you care for animals, but it's vitally important that the correct information is shared.

Rant: Willoughby hadn't sneezed blood in weeks, and now he's started again, really badly. He's cold and not eating well as a result. :(

Life.

Get well soon Willoughby!

I am having the hardest time finding a great painting or print for the dining room. I have two animal themed plates, one with a Tiger and one with a peacock. Maybe instead of paintings, I can hang several decorative plates..I dunno. >:/

I'm in the same boat with my anxiety, and am also ashamed to say I haven't had a job in years.

It doesn't impact me financially so much because my grandma needs my care, so I do get government benefits, but I am sick to death of relying on taxpayers and not pulling my own weight, if you know what I mean, even though *technically* I'm doing a job in caring for my grandmother full-time. I just... I want to get somewhere before it's too late, if that makes sense, but both my grandma needing care and crippling anxiety are holding me back. I'm forcing myself to do this course, and will force myself to succeed, because it's what I want to do as a profession, but at the same time I'm scared witless of even the practical aspect of the course, though I've been on the receiving end of body piercings many a time and know very well that it's not that big a deal when done correctly. I'm always scared of screwing up, and that fear is overwhelming, and now that fear is about something involving skin penetration, eek... I'm just scared that my anxiety is going to stop me from pursuing my dream career. Funny isn't it, fear of fear.

By the way LBF, what wattage of heater do you need? I have a few spare heaters and could post one to you if one I have is the correct size. They're those eBay ones, but they haven't failed me yet...

Thanks for the offer Sparrowhawk. Keep pushing. I have to get my butt into gear this year. I want to have money again and be able to support myself and my hobby. It was so nice when I had an income coming in every week.

My mum has offered to get me a couple of heaters to tide me over. Very disappointed in how my Eheim jagers have performed lately. Going to stick with my $15 ones I reckon. I think they are all made in the same place nowadays anyway.
