Thinking now much I HATE hospitals, but doesn't everyone? Just the smell of a Hospital makes me feel queasy. Spent the best part of the day in the Hospital after my Father-in-law came over really poorly at our place and had to be rushed to Hospital in an ambulance. Fortunately, after lots of tests, he seems okay now but it was a very stressful time for awhile. The Nurses were lovely though.

It's all brought back horrid memories of when I was 22 and my Dad was battling with terminal Cancer for months and we almost seemed to live at the Hospital. I was struggling with my job at the time too

I hope when my time comes I just go to bed, apparently healthy, and just don't wake up. But how many people get that kind of perfect ending?

God I'm in such a morbid mood tonight. Another sleepless night ahead of me I think

My mum just ordered a grocery delivery a few days ago and she's just ordered a take away. How can she be such a failed human?

Imagine being happily single and not having a desperate need for someone else to validate and define who you are. I'm white noise.

She had just ordered a grocery delivery, so either she failed to order any actual food to eat in it or she has food but failed to carry out the basic and easy task of cooking for herself. Given she owes me 26.5k the last thing she should be doing is wasting £15 on a takeaway. She is a failed human.

Why the idiots upstairs don't install a doorbell? Both these idiots and the idiots before them have had no doorbell and generally don't hear their door until it's been knocked 2-4 times. It's a simple problem with a cheap and simple solution.

Not sure what to do about the washing machine. The issue might be the PCB, motor, or heating system. To get it fixed under the free parts warranty will cost £120 labour. If I knew what the issue was exactly, I could fix it myself. A replacement PCB is £60 and if it turns out not to be the faulty part I can send it back with a restocking fee of £15 so if I did that for all 3 parts and don't manage to fix it, I will have wasted £45. Buying a new machine will be £220 plus £16 for the council to remove the old one (why I should have to pay for waste removal I don't know), this option has the best future proofing and mum was planning on getting a new one when we moved anyway (because she's an idiot that loves to throw away money).

She's too stupid to run her own life, if it wasn't for me she would have let the flat get repossessed and ended up homeless as she thought it better to pay for wine than her own mortgage, that would have thrown away the inheritance that me and my brother are due, having had to put up with her.

She's starting to go senile and will soon need to be cared for, I can do this to a higher standard than carers and without throwing away our inheritance to pay for it.

It's free accommodation for me, which allows me to save to support myself in the future as she has arranged nothing towards that end.

She's actually a lot better behaved than she has been historically, it's less common that she's deliberately nasty these days, which has mostly been a constant.

I'm confused - are parents supposed to arrange support for their children after they have died?
Surely by having a job and earning money you will be able to support yourself

So are you basically living with her so you can get her money when she is no longer alive?

I guess as an alternative, had you not wanted to 'put up with her' you could have lived independently, seeing as you work. You would have been free of her then.

It's a mutually beneficial situation. I guard her from her own stupidity, cook, clean and help out with whatever she needs help with and will fully care for her once she's incapable (not that I owe her anything), while I get free accommodation allowing me to save for the future and to make sure she doesn't waste our inheritance (the least we deserve given her behaviour towards us).

I have lived independently before a few times, it's just expensive, not much positive to say about it other than not being around mum. I need to think about what's best for me and my brother in the long term rather than what might feel a little better to me in the short term, like dieting basically.

^^ That's so sad to hear Kooky After people and pets, I think that pictures that capture cherished memories are the most precious things we possess.
Do you have any idea where you might have lost your camera while out and about and when? It's may be a bit of a long shot but maybe someone handed it in to lost property? I hope you find it

^ Enjoy your holiday Mutedsoul

^ Twins have that special relationship with someone that they've known literally since before birth so it must give a sense of security somehow. Some twins can't stand eachother though, that must be hard! I wonder if anyone here is a twin.

Apparently it's 'sexual happiness week' this week!

The chance would be a fine thing.

^ Do you find yourself waking up a lot in the night or jumping awake? Sometimes if you're not getting proper deep sleep it can leave you still feeling tired. I remember reading that people with certain breathing problems can be left still feeling tired in the mornings. There was some sort of mouth guard type thing that could help with it, if I remember rightly.
