Thistlene replied to Parapluie's topic in Schizophrenia and Various Psychoses -- Jesus Had a Twin Who Knew Nothing About SinI was devastated when I lost my 13 year old toy poodle. In 2 more weeks should would have been 14, but she had severe kidney failure. The afternoon of the day she was euthanized at the vet I got a tattoo of her front paw prints on my right foot. For me, it was a kind of closure. The pain actually helped me cope with some of the grief. She was cremated, but I have yet to acquire what I feel to be a worthy "vessel." Money is an obstacle for me too. Trust me, a tattoo can be a great way to immortalize your love for such a wonderful friend that was lost.

The food was okay and we got to choose what we ate. The nurses creeped me out for some reason and made me uncomfortable, as did most of the other patients. It was boring as hell since all we were allowed to do was talk to each other, share two tvs, or color-which is demeaning since we could only color-in pictures with crayons, because colored pencils were too dangerous..
