"Everything's fucking shit" Thread

This week has not been pleasant for my girlfriend and I. My girlfriend's mother is in the ICU and now on a ventilator. Things went downhill pretty quick but at least on the ventilator it's under control and she's stable, but the doctors are concerned that she's going to become dependent and go into a coma. Some back story is that her mother is last-stage COPD and already has a hard time breathing. She came in with an infection and her organs were failing one after the other. I have to leave here tomorrow because I need to go back to work and take care of things back home, so my girlfriend is stuck here in her hometown with her sisters until she either pulls out or worst case scenario, have to pull the plug.

We had our first snow storm of the season today.

You'd think no one ever drove in bad weather before, it's taken me six hours to make it from work to a diner about half way home

The senior most server admin at work has been severely ill for over a month now and I'm not sure we're going to see him any time soon which leads to me being the most senior on my team. Before this, I had half of the busiest customers; now I have all of them. I'm fine.

On top of all this, I've also, for some God forsaken reason, been considering delving into the Linux side of the house as well for more experience.

Ending the year with a bang, I'm off for ultra sound and an X-ray  on my left shoulder. The pain I'm in is like it was when I dislocated it many many years ago.

Instead of having a year in which to build up the money for a comfortable house deposit for me and my fiancee we've now got all of 3-4 months to bring something together (we've got a little put together already) and hope and pray that the banks are feeling lovely on the day we pop by for a chat about how much we can borrow. It's all a bit accelerated and quite stressful knowing we'll be at the bottom end of the market. ><

Applied via Freedom of Information for some reports and received a reply for payment of 39 pages. Paid cost, received documents only to find it being 39 pages of 'fill the gaps' and totally useless for what I needed them for. I understand authority is required to name names of the other party/ies but entire pages of nothing helps me zip!!
