  1. I have that weird feeling where I'm concerned that I'm not sad or depressed and because I'm not I think something must be wrong. My triad relationship ended really abruptly. The mess and the filth became too much, it was making me physically and mentally ill. I decided to move out. I take things literally and can be nothing other than honest and have a hard time figuring out when people aren't being literal or don't want honesty, so when they asked me to be honest about the reasons why, I told them simply that they were too mess and filthy for me but still felt our relationship could continue if we lived in separate housing. It really was horrible, if I explained how filthy then you'd all understand. But they didn't like that and took offense and we exchanged mean words and I thought fine, whatever I was starting to hate that location anyway. Plus it was getting really cold and I honestly hate the cold. So I started driving and driving and driving and ended up back to where I started years and years ago and I feel really ok with it. More than ok, I feel like I never left and a certain sense of peace that I'm where I want to be. Haven't felt any missing of my friends/girlfriends. Haven't answered them or felt a desire to reach out in return. I feel content with this decision. But also wondering if maybe I'm numb because I had several big moves last year. I get really uncomfortable when I feel content. It doesn't feel normal.
  2. True story. It's sort of an intellectual turn on.
  3. It's too bad they can't just start over now that Fuller is back. I'd really like to see a take on it from someone who isn't the blood-flying-loving-Fuller.
  4. It would definitely be interesting to go that route. I don’t know if they’ve really seeded a good reason for her to do so. Would it be vengeance against Steel Balls for killing someone or accidental? Or just something made up out of thin air?

    I'm so so very sorry for your loss, @drawkcabi
  6. So in effect the agents are sent to the future to get the inhuman to break the earth because the earth needed to be broken to go to the future? I'm genuinely enjoying this season but sometimes time travel can annoy me.
  7. So I guess now we have the inhuman that will put Earth back together? Will he do it in the present or the past? Do they take him back to stop Daisy?
  8. Hmm, I'm not so sure on this. In my situation I was no longer seeing the original therapist who had diagnosed me as I'd moved so I was able to start fresh with a new therapist. I think it's probably best to be direct and have your list of reasons handy. Maybe she'll reevaluate or maybe adjust treatment. I'm also a big fan of the second opinion if it's possible. I think maybe you're right in that I haven't found my place. I've taken some time away to really clear my head and think and it's occurring to me that I constantly fall in love with the idea of something or some place without really thinking about the long term realities of it. So I'm always going from one thing to the next when what I really need to do is figure out how to fall in love with the reality rather than just the idea. Not sure if that makes sense, it works in my head lol.
  9. Yup. Years ago I received a diagnosis and it felt right in the moment and the treatment for it helped get me through a crisis. After that and as time went on, I became less certain the diagnosis was correct. At the time I was doing well but started to feel myself struggle and long term treatment and maintenance for the diagnosis just seemed useless for my situation. I sought out a different doctor and she got a more thorough history and really took her time and arrived at a different diagnosis. It feels right. More importantly, there are more effective ways to manage my health with this particular diagnosis because treatment is slightly different. I say it probably doesn't hurt to have it further examined, especially if you feel that you've been inadequately treated.
  10. I sort of wonder if I'm going through some type of life crisis. I feel so...unsettled? I don't know if that's the exact word I want to use, but I guess close enough. I find I tend to be a bit nomadic by nature. I love being in new places, but I also love being home. I think I'm sort of looking for a place to dig in roots, but also scared of the idea of being settled in one place. I'm in a location where the idea is to find a place to settle, but nothing appeals to me at all. Maybe the idea of it, but definitely not the reality. I start wondering how I could have possibly wanted to do this. Then when I sit to think about where I might want to be instead of here, I'm just as baffled and uninterested. It's strange, unsettling. I'm only in my mid-30's but I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm having some sort of super early mid life crisis. Is this what it feels like?
  11. I really enjoyed the newest episode though it was terribly hard to watch and in some places quite maddening. A plot that incorporates the slave trade is always going to be nauseating and emotional. I think they did an ok job of showing the horrors of the enslaved without fetishizing it too much. I was frustrated that Jamie and Claire didn't give Temeraire something to assist him in his life in hiding. Not even so much as a weapon, ugh. Would be great if they actually had more story and commentary about the slave trade other than using it as a convenient pot device to further Claire's and Jamie's needs. Then using Yi Tien Cho as a distraction, gods that was terrible. Geillis! I mean it was beyond creepy and disgusting and horrifying. I could barely watch as she seduced a child, but it's hard to deny that some of the camera work and directing was excellent. That part where she slithers off Ian was so crazy. The reunion of John Grey and Jamie was the highlight. I'm glad that (spoiler is minor change from books) It just made the reunion that much better. Looking forward to more Governor Grey.
  12. I figure I'll probably like the show better now that Fuller is out. The story captured me right away, but Fuller's flying blood fetish annoyed me so much I wasn't going to tune in to season 2.
  13. This is true. I just expected/hoped the show would be different on this. Almost all of the scenes with the priest were useless and it was made more obvious on screen that they ignored Mamacita (or made her a stereotype) in favor of this priest who was only needed to officiate a wedding. It seemed like all the actors even realized all of his "but you have no hand" was stupid dialogue because no one was selling it. They have somewhat improved Mr. Willoughby. Wish they could improve the tertiary female characters. About Joan, doesn't she have a novella? The Space Between was Joan focused, iirc.
  14. This season has been a real slog for me. I thought I remembered this book in the series to be fun, fast paced and exciting but it's not translating well to the screen. Or maybe I'm just misremembering how I felt about the book. I'm also becoming quite annoyed with peripheral female characters having such little development. It seems like Father WhatHisName had much more development than the Brothel Owner, Mamacita and Goat Lady combined.
