I can't stand that all I've been able to do for the past couple of days is argue with my mom and brother. He's 18 and still gets babied, so everything he does is my fault.
My mother has gotten into this habit of talking about me like I'm not here, mostly when I'm in the room. "Oh, she doesn't have a job. She lays in bed all day. Blah, blah, blah." I suffer with depression, so it is a little hard for me to get out of bed each and every day, I hardly ever leave my room, and I do have a job...okay, so it isn't a high paying job and I actually have to work really hard in order to make money at it but it's still income.
The only person I can stand in this house is my dad and that is probably only because he works all the time, and then when he is home he is usually doing stuff for Mom, who talks to him the same way she does to me which makes him the only person who understands how I feel.
I have come to accept the fact that we don't have as much money as we use to with all of the bills and the crappy economy yet my younger brother still begs to eat out every night and when we don't he usually goes without after throwing a tantrum. [/rant]
Sorry, it's just some stuff I wanted to get out of my head...
Lost my voice. It's mostly back today, but still sounds icky.
Damian's sick again. This time with bloat (he's not pooping), and an infection on his tail. It's not rotting, but there's definitely something up with it. Right now just treating with AQ salt just in case it turns into a fin rot-type thing. He's lethargic but has an appetite, but I'm going to be fasting him for a bit just to see if he'll actually take a poo. His gills are worse than before, so I'll be looking into medications. Anyone know of a good medication for inflamed gills?
Gah. I think I'm going to have to put Azrael into the divided 10 gal instead, since Damian doesn't need any more stress right now.
I'm sorry to go into detail, but there's a pimple under my skin and it really hurts. And I can't get it to go away. I washed it, dryed it out, put rubbing alcohol on it, and I'm just hoping it'll go away by tomorrow... or the Christmas dance, at least!
Betta Slave: From personal experience my advise is take a damp wash cloth and heat it up in the microwave for about 10-15 or so seconds enough for it to get warm/as hot as you can stand, and keep it pressed to the area where the pimple is. Keep doing this, and re-heating it for a while , and eventually it'll come out because the warmth and moisture will open up your pores. Sometimes it takes repeated uses over a day or so, but eventually it'll work.
