Venting Stories

  • Stressed About Tomorrow

    Saturday, May 18, 2013 | A Venting story

    I try not to hollar too much or get too upset about things I can't change, but today, I need to vent a little. (Or maybe I'm whining, or maybe I'm dreaming of whining....) Lol Anyway, I just needed to set it all down.
    My life the last few weeks has been greatly complicated by my car breaking down. All of the family relatives are 100 miles away or more, and any friends I have are usually so busy w...

  • String of bad luck this month

    Saturday, June 22, 2013 | A Venting story

    So far June's been pretty crappy for me.  I sprained my knee (thankfully only a minor sprain!), but then right when I was starting to walk without a brace this guy accidentally stepped on my toe and completely massacred it. It is not a pretty sight.  I taped it up, but it still looks like crap   My friends have now nicknamed me Franken-foot.
    And a few days ago my boyfriend beg...

  • Venting and Ranting

    Wednesday, November 6, 2013 | A Venting story

    I don't feel like anyone really understands me (as teenager as that may sound). I don't think I can really talk to anyone about things that are bothering me. My mom just shrugs it off as no big deal, my friends don't want to hear it, and my boyfriend doesn't say much of anything and barely listens.
    It becomes increasingly frustrating to feel so alone. People I see in my every day life, disgust m...

  • Life Sucks!!!!

    Tuesday, December 24, 2013 | A Venting story

    Everyone says Merry Christmas..... I can't get into the "Christmas Spirit"... Between my pain level and going through the 14th Christmas with out my mom.... She was the one who got me in the spirit every year. She loved this time of year. I finally made it to the cemetery to visit her grave..... it was a 4 for 1 special... My great grandma, grandma, grandpa and mom are burred there... 
    You'd...

  • Discouraged, Lonely

    Tuesday, January 21, 2014 | A Venting story

    I've felt really bad today. Dizzy, light headed, neck and lower back hurt. Never know when the severe vertigo will occur so I'm often housebound. Still a couple of weeks before I go to the different ENT doctor and the neurosurgeon a few weeks after that.

  • Facebook is gathering our data, even when we don't use Facebook, for advertising purposes. This is a worrying trend. Haven't they earned enough money as it is?
    It's one thing to seek money from Advertising; I have registered to do that myself; but this clandestine gathering of data underlines how the obsession with being Super-Rich taints the soul.
    If I was a philanthropist, I'd inject the money ...

  • So frustrated!!!

    Friday, August 1, 2014 | A Venting story

    I called my doctor's office last night to see if it would be open next week only to find out it's closed until August 13th!!! It's always closed a lot! I had my blood tests done two weeks ago and they probably have the results by now but they might have closed before getting them! While they're closed there's no way to find out anything!!! I'm so tired of always not feeling well!!! I'm so tired o...

  • Rollercoaster emotions

    Thursday, December 11, 2014 | A Venting story

    I feel like physically and emotionally that I am on an unending rollercoaster! Some days my pain isn't too bad and other days it's horrendous! My bowel movements are all over the place. Some days I have 10 or more bowel movements a day passing very small amounts. Sometimes I have to really strain to have even one bowel movement. Other days I'm just bloated, gassy and pass only a little liquid sto...

  • 2014 Was rough

    Monday, December 29, 2014 | A Venting story

    A new year is about to dawn as the old one draws to a close.  I can't say that I will miss this year.  Early in the year a young woman whom I've known most of her life committed suicide leaving behind a loving husband and two beautiful twin girls.  I think that it is safe to say that we are all still reeling a bit from that one.
    Then my father-in-law found out that he has Stage 5 R...

  • After effects of colon resection and waiting on endocrinologist

    Wednesday, February 11, 2015 | A Venting story

    I've been told that it will take a year from surgery before my bowels normalize more and that they won't be the same as before. That there will be a "new normal". For a while I was struggling with constipation, bloating and pain. I had a horrendous sigmoidoscopy in order to stretch the narrowing where the two ends of colon are attached. Never again will I have a sigmoidoscopy without sedation an...
