About Me

I was a member since the beginning of DU, but drifted away. During Trump, I decided to come back to the community of like-minded people for support and hope. In my last iteration here, I hit 10,000 posts, but will start again!

Constant hang-up calls on landline

It's driving us crazy. We're on the "Do Not Call" list. We keep getting calls like a man saying, " Is the lady of the house there?. Hello?". My male partner finally answered the phone and told him to stop calling. I use my landline. Sometimes for imp business. I snapped last week with a caller who keeps calling my partner about something and demanded they stop calling everyday.

Can I get their number and call my provider? Lots of hang up calls. They're creeping me out and making me anxious.

Anyone deal with this? I feel like telling them to stop should end it. Is there something we can do? Tia

Evening unease

Hello all. Hope everyone is having peace and calm in their lives.

I've always been a night person. Used to love sitting up late, watching TV, but I'm getting old so I don't stay up past 10 pm usually. It used to be that coming home from a stressful day of work, was the happiest time of my day. I had no such feelings then

I find myself feeling unease or dread as evening advances. It's the oddest sensation. I start worrying that Mr Xanaduer might get ill or die; my anxiety level goes up. Watching an absorbing TV show does help. I have no idea why I'm getting these feelings as it gets dark.

It feels like things are closing in on me. Anyone else have feelings like this? I'll be turning on Vera soon

Help me understand facebook craziness

I identified a picture of magician James Randi as "The Amazing Randi" and someone alerted that that was bullying. I got a threat from Facebook!

WTH!

Depressed today;scrubbed the floor

Thanks to everyone who responded to my messy-house thread with tips, hints, and suggestions.

Today. I took the initiative to scrub clean the absolutely grungiest section of the floor. Like, bleach and hot water, on the floor with a Scrubbie.

It looks and feels so much better now. Small victories

15-yr-old MA teenager dies of Covid Complications

https://www.boston.com/news/coronavirus/2022/01/07/kurt-ryan-covid-19-gloucester/

Gloucester teenager has died from COVID-19 complications.

Kurt Ryan, 15 and a sophomore at Gloucester High School, died on Jan. 4., according to a GoFundMe established to cover his funeral expenses. As of Friday morning, the campaign had been shut down with over $27,000 raised.

“I don’t know what to say, we’re in so much pain right now,” Tammy Ryan, Kurt’s mother, told WCVB.

Does anyone here have chaos in their environment?

My last sublet was roomy and beautiful, and I kept it up. Due to ongoing mental-health issues. And feeling drained constantly, my current apartment is messy and there are unpacked boxes around. Dust bunnies and fur around the baseboards. I do keep on top of the dishes and laundry.

The apt is a bit run down, and the area around the tub not grouted or waterproofed, so there's some recurring damage in that corner. I'm terrified of the lease not being renewed. I am grateful to have a place to live, however.

Anyone else struggle with a chaotic life , home, etc? I'm off work, so I should do more, then I feel guilty and worse.

Thanks for listening

How relieving to hear bad incidents at work

And knowing none of it is your problem anymore.

Any DUers have some good tuna salad recipes?

I sometimes add pickle relish.. had some today with celery. I use albacore.

Anyone here have experience with long-term disability payments

I've been taken out of work and got my employer's long-term disability payments. I have to pay them back.

Anyone ever in the same situation? I understand the LTD company can take your SSDI back payments. I'm just waiting to be turned down (first attempt at applying) for SSDI. can the insurance company take, or put you in debt, to them if their payout exceeds any SSDI back payments? I'm worried. What if I don't have enough back payments to cover 2 years of LTD payments?

Does anyone have experience with this?

Anybody ever use cheese ravioli layered like lasagna

Or has a crockpot recipe for lasagna? I'm trying to come up with an easy lasagna method
