My boyfriend just broke up with me.
And I sent him an angry message. Like a crazy girlfriend would, out of my feelings.
I'm extremely anxious to see what he says. I wish I could undo it. It was pretty nasty. At least I thanked him for dragging me through an experience and not doing the same mistake over again.

I also have to present a report on a book I read in English class sometime this week. I'm a little nervous about that, and my anxiety has been a bit on edge lately. I hope I don't have a panic attack while I'm presenting... TALK ABOUT EMBARRASSING.



Hey Bubble,

Don't worry about it. If you are not his girlfriend anymore you don't have to feel responsible; neither do you need to be anxious to see what he replies to you.


I don't think you are a nasty person, in fact you are the sweetest crunchyroll user I know. You shouldn't think about school too much, it is work that makes you happy. Use me for example I never finished school but I'm very happy with my job because for 8-13 hours a day Ive only need to watch anime with the crunchyroll app or play Real Racing 3

bottomline is, who cares about past lovers, and try to think of high school as a game. I DID and I had so much fun that is before the principal asked me to leave and I dropped out.


anyway time for me to go to work now, I had no sleep

I am afraid of getting old. Or, I should say older; as I already feel 'old'.

I'm afraid of werewolves, jellyfish, and tuberculosis. I take preventative measures to avoid entanglements with these things. Avoiding werewolves is easy because they probably don't exist.

^ Yeah, I don't like presenting either. I had to take a public speaking class in college and I nearly OD'd on how much anxiety I had about it. I don't even understand why I get nervous. I knew everyone in the class but I always got nervous. I always got so frustrated with getting nervous lol. But I finished the class with an A so I feel better now.

In regard to the topic, life in general has me anxious. I didn't like high school but at least i felt no pressure. Life after high school can be a drag, too.

Many things worry me, too many to list. But,it's counterproductive to worry about things over which you have no control. It's easy to say it but less easy to live it.


^ Wise words.

It's funny you ask that because my fear of TB is the only rational one on the list. More people should be afraid of TB.

TB is not that virulent, but it's still nasty. It takes at least 18 months after infection for symptoms to show up (unless you are immunocompromised like with HIV), and usually over two years. It requires at least 9 months of consecutive treatment with two or more antibiotics to get rid of it, and it often evolves immunity to at least one of those antibiotics during that time. Multi-drug resistant (MDR) strains require over 9 months of treatment with at least three antibiotics, and often become untreatable. Extremely drug resistant (XDR) is fatal 99% of the time, only it takes years and years to kill you. While you are waiting for death, any time you cough you could be spraying aerosolized droplets of pus, blood, and bacteria up to twenty feet away, creating uncountable fomites and exposing thousands of people. You want to be thoroughly disgusted? Read about caceous necrosis.

Because of the spread of MDR and XDR TB from endemic areas into urban areas by immigration and international travel, and because the US health care system only treats those who are willing and able to pay for services, TB is now spreading through the US again. TB is still prevalent in the populations of many tribal areas, particularly in the western states and Alaska, and is becoming more common in cities on the east coast. It's just a matter of time before TB becomes an epidemic in the US, and without constant development of new antibiotic treatments we will never keep it under control.

Here is a cross-sectioned lung with a large caseous cyst ready to erupt into the bronchii. When these cheese-like abscesses grow into a bronchiole and rupture it, they leak TB-filled pus into the lungs, which is then coughed out along with some blood from the rupture. When they grow into a blood vessel and rupture it, they leak TB-filled pus into the blood stream. These cysts are usually found on the lungs, but can grow anywhere in the body, including within the bones, skin, and muscles. They can be as small and numerous as grains of sand, or as large as grapefruits.

You sure it's not even covered by Obama care? Anyway I worry about emphysema anyday more than tb because there is actually methods to treat it what they do is make some sort of scar that separate the bad and the good within the lung.

And I take back what I said about liking my job. Some stupid chick hit me in the head. Not all women are like that right mhibicke lol
A miracle I am not bleeding out of my ears even if I am I would never file an injury report because I worked for wcb I know what a shitty job they do and how long it takes thwm to process one thing

Holy shit balls. ^ Coincidentally, I just got done getting a TB test and it didn't 'bubble up' so I think I'm in the clear. I was pretty pissed about having to get one done (just didn't feel like going to the doctor's office) but after reading this I feel a little more positive about the experience lol.

RIGHT?!!!! See why I'm afraid? And that picture is actually one of the better ones. Most of them get pretty stomach-churning. I don't even want to imagine the smell.

Certain jobs require testing for TB antibodies (the scratch test you got), specifically anything in health or child care because sick people and children have lousy immunological defenses and one infected person could really tear things up. Basically, most people with TB are like Typhoid Mary - they don't realize that they're spreading disease, and so go about their business as usual.

TB vaccinations are available, but not often given in the US because the cost-benefit ratio here hasn't justified it yet. It only offers about 1/2 protection, and that protection decreases the older the recipient is at the time of injection. Canadians and people in many other countries, however, get TB vaccines as part of their childhood immunizations, so will present positive scratch tests.
