It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

MAC GOT THE JOB!!!

Right on, Mac! Stick with those daily showers and your employer will be so happy with you!

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

Hooray, job for Mac!

The NP who my dad has seen at the geriatric medicine practice was out today, but her PA read my brother's email about Dad calling the cops last night; she recommended doubling his antipsychotic dosage for now, and then on Monday my brother will talk to the NP about getting a referral to a psychiatrist.

My brother also talked to the police today -- the cops who were at Dad's place last night were off duty when my brother called, but the person he spoke to said that the Cincinnati police do have a mental health crisis unit with mental health clinicians that they'll send instead of cops (I had no idea our PD had that, but it's definitely needed) if it's a low-risk situation. But first the person has to be registered in the CPD's system as having a diagnosed mental illness. So my brother is going to tackle that Monday, too.

Yes, having him registered will be a big help, and of course being inpatient until they get him stable would be a whole lot better. I hope you can distract yourself this weekend.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Yay for Mac!

That all sounds pretty good, Tep. Hang in there

BTW, a couple of days later and I still have a nice lumpy tender spot on my arm from the Tdap shot. Not a painful swollen egg like shingles, but noticeable.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Yikes, that has been a lot going on!

I'm glad Mac is settling in and got a job, and I'm glad Steph's brother is helpful with their dad and I hope he gets his meds etc figured out., because that is a lot for you to deal with!

But my chicken/lemon/garlic/orzo soup is soooo good.

I've been trying to eat down my freezer, which includes a bunch of turkey stock. Do you think there is enough lemon in the world to make it avgolemono-esque??
