It sounds like a tough time for all concerned, not least you. My sister-in-law had some really crazy (several weeks or months) episodes every few years, which have really put my brother through it. Medication (lots of it) barely touches the sides! She sees a very different world while she is there,with fantastical relationships etc, but which remain consistent throughout here episodes. I feel terrible that I can't help my brother more, meanwhile he is trapped as they have a little boy and he has to make things 'right' for the boy every time. In the years in between, when the medication regime is working, she is a fully functioning person, with a responsible job!

So, second hand, and having only seen a handful of days like it myself, I know how impossibly difficult it can all seem, and is indeed actually so!

This doesnít compare to the above but I think it falls into the unhappy category. Probably the stupid file as well. I was using a pressure washer yesterday and was washing a spade off. Travelled a bit to far up the handle and sliced a groove open between the thumb and upper part of the hand. Scalpel work people. Nice incision into in unnecessary area of flesh. I have a pretty high pain threshold but I have to say that hurt. Couldnít look for about 50 ft of pain. Worked my hand to see if I cut any tendons or imports bits. Nothing. All good. Wrapped it in a towel and taped it with painters tape. Called the hospital but they said they were busy beyond belief. Bought some really neat stitch and heal bandages and now Iím happy again.

Snap! Well, not snap, but SLICE!

My thumb has looked like this for the last few days due to a scalpel wound when trying to cut for the new scenery I am working on. I never learn - always cut AWAY from yourself.

Still, I am lucky, no stitches needed unlike the time I opened my little finger up 3 cm long! That was ugly, and again a scalpel wound from careless modelling. Several stitches then!

Ouch!☝️
Here is the really cool bandages. Yes I know the rest of the hand looks like it belongs in Padres death army but it is loving breathing flesh.

My mother lost one of her sister's this past weekend, a favorite aunt of mine, and we haven't heard what the cause of her passing is yet.  All very disappointing.

My fairly new computer, only a few months old, has been having problems since about the first week I bought it. I'm pretty sure I bought a lemon but I've procrastinated about taking it in.

Well really got to motor on it no because last night it essentially died completely. Wouldnt go past the loading screen, and has no spent the past 12 hours reinstalling windows. I'm taking that as a not great sign.

Ouch!  I'm looking at buying a new computer myself.  Seems like the video card might be damaged on one, and the other is an older model.  Time for an upgrade soon.

So as of this weekend my brother has severed all contact with me because I didn't attend my cousin's funeral (along with whatever my estranged father has told him) without even calling me to find out why or get my side of the story. That hurts.

Also, my paternal grandmother passed away yesterday (not due to covid). So there's another funeral coming up in the near future.

That hurts for sure. My brother hasnít talked to my mom/dad for 5 years. I can understand not talking to my dad but I canít get around him cutting out my mom.
Family dynamics sure can be crazy bad at times.

Bummer to hear.  It would be nice if folks could get along, be accepting, empathetic, graceful, and understanding.

Not sure if anyone visits The Grand Alliance site (complete AoS board). A great in-depth and positive site that covers virtually every aspect of the AoS world has been closed for for few days. Hope itís just maintenance but all the talk of GW and their mishandling of recent products make me worry unnecessarily. Iím sure that site has close links with GW.

Oh that'd be a bummer if the site doesn't come back.  I don't frequent W:AoS sites almost ever, but still, loss sucks.

I reacted like an idiot as usual. TGA just closed for maintenance. All good this morning. The good thing about ringing the alarm bell is that it comes round to pound you in the arse later but allís well that ends well

One of my cats broke her jaw. She had to be put to sleep.
On the plus side, I've adopted another feline

That is very sad. Iíve never heard of that happening before. We have 3 of the critters.

I'm still taming Angus at the moment. He's quite skittish
My must have been a chaos god in a previous life. She likes to get on my Empire shelf and bat the miniatures off it. My old steam tank now has teeth marks in its barrel
