Thank you for reminding me that I was due for a pap smear several months ago. On the phone to reschedule it now.
A friend of mine was in a... "thing"... with a girl he met online for about five years. She had cancer and lived across the Atlantic and they couldn't meet because of... issues. He talked her through chemotherapy for hours and hours every night, through her having to get a mastectomy, got to even know her family members on the phone.
Then one day he spoke to her mother and it turned out she had never had cancer, she had been getting electroshock therapy for severe mental illness.
I'm not really sure how you get over that.
@Edith Zimmerman Whaaaaaat! You break my heart, Edith.
@limenotapple I am exactly the same way and I never really thought about why it's a thing for me... It's the same kind of 'detaily' stuff that I get the feeling from - I remember distinctly watching this girl in my math class in high school kind of obsessively but delicately touching and readjusting her hair and being mesmerised by it. Same thing with makeovers, anything delicate/detaily/hand-oriented.
I had no idea this was a thing.
This event never occurred to me when I was a server.
Possibly because of the proportion of the time I spilled drinks on people.
@MadKey Or alternatively, go hiking alone in bear-less places.
@Sea Ermine I'm not sure not eating food can be considered 'healthy' at least not in terms of 'mental health'. All I see is disorder.
Maybe he just doesn't poo. He's figured out the SECRET.
