    Another day off ruined by household disaster.

    Ok, hold on to your seats, I got a real humdinger this time.... Why me?... While I was getting ready for bed, I could hear the upstairs lady in her ensuite bathroom directly above my bedroom, going about her evening routine. Toilet flushed, sink started running. I hear the usual second flush...

    Need advice about a wall switch in my house.

    I just got the shit scared out of me by a light switch. I will be calling an electrician tomorrow but I would like an opinion on this. It's really hard to find reputable contractors here. The upstairs lady just woke me up freaking out about a light switch in the porch sparking. I ran up to...

    Would this work to free a stuck tank?

    *This is a technical question. I am not asking for war stories. I would never do that, especially on this site.* I am reading a fictional novel about a U.S. mechanised brigade engaging in combat with the Soviet Union. At some point during the novel, the protagonists tank (M1-a1 Abrahms)...

    Family Or God? Why Must I Choose?

    Well.... This is one of the scariest posts I've ever written. Deep breath, here goes... This has been an interesting week. Almost killed, almost fired, now possibly ex-communicated. You know? I am getting really f*cking sick of just about everything lately. Why is there no cave I can crawl...

    Almost died today

    Still shaking, was doing ok for a bit, not so sure now. (I'll try to make this explanation clear as possible.) Walking to work I have to cross a intersection with proper traffic lights. This is one of those intersections that during the night remains green for one direction until someone drives...

    Damn Wildlife...

    I work in shipping for a stupid company, which I only mention because this is why I was out walking at 1am. I was born and raised a city slicker, my normal idea of wildlife is found in zoos. The kind that gets within 100 feet of you, it's found in petshops. The particular Canadian city I live...

    Why Does No One Listen To A Word I Say?

    So, for the last few months I have had pain in my shoulder and arm when moving my head and neck. It got better for a while, but about a week ago, it got quite a bit worse. So naturally I ignored it, hoping it would go away. This doesn't seem to have worked, oddly. Last night I went to reach...

    I Hate Bugs.

    I just got finished waging war on a spider I found whilst putting my shopping away. It was a big one too. With great big pointy teeth! Well no not really... but still Eeeeewwww! I hate those things! I hate them, I hate them, I hate them! I went to turn the light off and there it was on the...

    I Told You So... (story Time)

    While I was out of town the other week. I had a conversation with one of my relatives about cigarette smoking. She and her boyfriend were trying to quit for the 50th time, but they both started again. Now there's nothing remarkable about that. What caught my attention was they both tried to...

    I Had To Pass The Scene Today.

    One of my relatives who also lives here in Canada, passed away this week. She had been very ill for several years now. She had suffered from multiple sclerosis for longer than I've been alive. In the last few years, she was beginning to develop congestive heart disease, kidney disease, which...

    How Did You Bring In The New Year?

    I haven't done this in years now, but I spent the seconds ticking down to the new year, plus a couple of hours before and after, with my head in the toilet. Why? To much to drink? Nope. Food poisoning? Possibly, I have eaten more than my share of McDonald's this last couple weeks. Stop...

    Remembrance Day Is Soon Upon Us.

    Now that it's November. Remembrance day is fast approaching. I have already made my contribution to the poppy fund. Will give more come payday. (Story time) I used to work in retail, long time ago. The company I worked for at the time aimed for seniors as their target demographic. So...

    I Did It. Why Do I Feel So Horrible Now?

    I am hiding in a toilet stall at work. I had a driver try everything possible to make me lose my temper at him. It was absolutely deliberate, he and have never gotten along. He showed up 2 hours early with a a massive load I didn't have room for. He hid the paperwork for the driver that was...

    You Know Your Paranoid When...

    You come home a late shift, almost trip over a mysterious package some dickhead has thrown over your fence. Immediately go inside, don your flack jacket, torch and knife. Go outside and ensure that it really is just a piece of trash, and not something worse. (turned out to be a dirty diaper.)...

    Neverthesame's Stupid Lessons Learned The Hard Way.

    I got a splinter from a pallet at work today and it reminded me of something stupid I did once. The more I thought about it, I started remembering lots of rather dumb things I have done over the years. Some funny, some not, but valuable lessons learnt by the experiences. I thought I would...

    Anyone Else Ever Have This Happen? (colonoscopy Related)

    Last year I had to go for a colonoscopy, just a screening. I spoke of it here in the forums briefly, but didn't go into a lot of detail. I have scoured the internet searching for the answer to this, but I can't find any definitive answer. A quick outline of what happened: - Prep a day prior...

    Other Hyperacusis (unusual sensitivity to sound)

    I was another thread and this thought entered my head. Rather than hijack that thread, I wanted to start this one. I have had this problem for a few years now, usually it's not too bad. Though, last year I had a couple of days when it got really bad. It has since calmed down for the most part...

    I Never Thought I Would Have To Do This Again.

    I am on day 2 of my withdrawal from Effexor (Venlaxafine). Before I get too many messages about how bad an idea this is. I know, I really do. This is something I would rather not have done. Yes it is dangerous, and yes I am a massive hypocrite for doing the thing I freak out about other...

    The Wrong Thing For The Right Reasons.

    This was something that occurred years ago. Before I had PTSD, when I was still me. The first job I ever had, was at a gas station. Miserable job, customers are umm. Special. Some are nice, some are jerks. Some are nice but come attached to jerks. Which leads me to the point. This one day I...

    Uncontrolled Muscle Movement.

    This happens to me sometimes and I was wondering if anyone else does as well? The best way I can think to explain what I'm on about is to tell the story of when this happened last. Feel free to laugh at this, I sure do. A couple of years ago I was having dinner with my Mum. I had ordered...

    An Uncomfortable Question.

    I will be going for a medical procedure within the next few weeks to determine if I have bowel cancer. I am not expecting bad news, odds are the test will find nothing. I have however found myself thinking very heavily on the idea of what I want to do should the test come back positive. Over the...

    Sufferer I Think I Have Been A Massive Idiot.

    How to begin? I guess I will start with where it all started to go wrong. About 8 years ago, I was training to be an EMT. One night went out with a couple of friends for a little camping trip, at one of those rv parks. I don't feel up to going into a lot of detail about what happened. There...
