The bus/train accident really fucking sucks. As far as I know, we've had buses flip over from the wind, or hit cars stopped at the side of the road, but I've never heard of one hitting a train here before this.

They say the bus never slowed down. So far, there are 6 dead, 31 taken to hospital and 11 of those are critical.

As someone who takes the buses in Ottawa all the time, the accident doesn't surprise me. A large number of bus drivers are either chatting with people standing at the front of the bus or talking on their cell phones. As a rider, I find it disturbing.

My foster mom finally died from the stomach cancer that's been slowly eating away at her. My foster sister, who alienated me with her heroin use and inappropriate behavior, doesn't understand why I won't talk to her. She also doesn't know how bad I've gotten with my own health problems...cause I won't talk to her. I'm in such a horrible place...I just don't have the energy for a conversation with her that she won't listen to and will just use as an excuse to attack me again. I want to go to the services but I just don't know. I'd like shitty things to stop happening to me and my loved ones. Fuck.

I actually really like that idea Unjon. I just finished talking to my best friend on the phone and it really cheered me up and we specifically talked about the peace the temple has brought us in the past. Thank you.

Well fuck. Had it all figured out how I was going to finance tickets and the trip to BRC next year and then I got the fucking rug pulled out from under me. The amount I make does not cover my expenses. I have been covering that by working overtime in a different department. The first week of every month that department has unlimited overtime . I have been working that to cover the difference and to pay doctor bills which have piled up. Well I was just informed that I can no longer work in the other department because they do not know how to bill my hours for the other department. WTF??? They trained me so I could work in the other department when they needed extra help !!!!!

I feel you BB. Just as I got hopeful and felt like things were going my way...they cut off my long term disability payments. With no warning. Based on one 10 minute "independent exam". Losing over a third of our household income has us scrambling. I have to file an ERISA appeal. I meet with a lawyer next week about that. The shitstorm just keeps coming. Fuck.

Did I mention the thoracic MRI found at least 4 more herniated disks in my back? That makes a total of 11. FML.

Hugs to everyone.

Wow, had a major wake - up call last weekend. I took a fall down my stairs while carrying stuff up and down. My family found me face down at the bottom in a pudde of blood. I ended up with bleeding into the brain, a lacerated liver, 4 broken ribs and foreheqd laceration. Family tells me I stopped breathing at one point before the EMT's got there.

Has certainly made me re-evaluate how lucky I am to be here, and how none of us ever know from moment to moment what is around the corner.

Head and ribs hurt like a bitch but I'm home from the hospital and hope to be getting better every day.

Hug everybody you love today!

Thanks all for your thoughts - have had lots of burner love though haven't been on line much - things are still a bit blurry. Hopefully that will be better soon as I transition to non-narcotic pain management.
