If the weather is correct, today is the last nice day and then high 90's for a week.

Do you have a source for this, or do you actually know the people involved?
If true, it would indicate a serious problem with your local testing protocols!

At this point it's one person telling my friend who shared it with me.
It does make me wonder about other test results from that location.

Indeed, that is worrisome if they are that disorganized.
One also wonders if these positive results belonged to someone else, who has now not been notified...
In any case, sounds like a mess. Best-case scenario, hopefully something was just lost in translation as the story was told to your friend.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

Greyhound, i'm so glad you are feeling better and that the really serious part lasted such a short time. It isn't just the physical part but covid is so psychologically draining too (and I wasn't even the one sick) - so really glad you are doing better.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

My dad's business partner wants to dissolve their business. Dad's not happy cause his partner has stolen all their valuable equipment already so if thry just dissolve it without a buyout, he'll get barely a thing.

I've actually been trying and trying to get my 100% healthy sister to help my dad for a while now but she thinks it's my responsibility as I dont work. I've told her that I just can't take the lead helping my dad cause deep in my heart I don't want to help him. I realize I resent my dad very much.

And I just cannot get myself to do things I truly don't want to do because of my adhd sometimes. Sister still hasn't done a thing and doesn't think my adhd is a good reason when I don't have to work.

Now what I didn't want to happen, which is my other sister who still gets fatigued and has 2 crazy kids to raise, will have to lead the effort - calling me over and over to push me to do the things that need to be done since I can't do it without the push. And that other sister is still probably gonna do nothing and get mad at me still for not wanting to help my dad. Her attitude of me being responsible for everything with my dad just cause I don't work is completely unfair.

I'm already starting to feel that adhd anxiety that creeps in when I don't want to do something I have to just writing this.

That situation completely sucks. My brother did not guilt me into helping
when he had to move my dad into a nursing home, but he made it clear
that he was doing it so he would be the financial beneficiary.

Fine with me. It wasn't worth any amount of money to help manage things
with my dad. I didn't resent dad any more, but I had cut the connection and
did not want to reconnect in any way.

I lost my Vyvanse prescription a few months ago, and I’ve really been struggling. Not sure if I’ll be able to go back on MPH. We’re still waiting for the Strattera to kick in.

Re: The what's bothering you RIGHT NOW thread Part VI

What's bothering me right now? What else? The tyrant I'm married to, who calls me a liar... because explaining to him 19thousand times the short term memory is crap hasn't yielded results. So, I am a liar, forever..... can I scream now?

Is your own covid still getting better greyhound?

Yeah, I had to drive around to take care of some of my dads things and it’s like people are just proceeding as if the pandemic is over. The only exception is that masks are required indoors now so people are wearing masks. Which is great.

But I wish people just stayed at home when they can. And the way they wear masks. So many just wear them around their chins.

A lot of things are bringing me down this year. This is one of the worse years ever.

I’m doing much better. Thanks for asking. I had a rough 3 days and then was back to my abnormal self. My wife also got sick a few days later and had a Covid test which came back negative, thankfully. Two at work were out for almost 2 weeks with the same symptoms we had and their Covid tests also came back negative. Not sure what it was, just glad what it wasn’t.

How’s your sister doing?
