Has anyone seen Twisted Todd? We haven't seen him in HOURS. He's out looking for his pen.


Things are tough, but so are people

I've never been too afraid to talk about whatever tough and difficult things are going on in my world, at least if people seem to care.
One thing I've never wanted to do is bring anyone down for no good reason. I don't like to ruin another person's good time. If people care and ask, though, I'll tell them anything and everything. I really have no shame. Maybe a little bit, but a very little bit.
Last week my girlfriend had a complete psychological breakdown and some people have been attentive enough and kind enough to know something's wrong and I can tell they want to know. And I want to tell them! At least as much as I can tell them.
She had a post-partum type breakdown is what it is. I'm not going to go into too many details for her sake, but it's led to much dealing with different agencies in different parts of the state. I can remember a total of ten encounters with representatives from one agency or another.
What I can't remember is anything that's been so hard to get through. I really couldn't have done it to this point if not for my mother being so fantastic and some of my friends being there as well. People like Matt and Mark Hendrix have been tremendously supportive, along with various personal friends and even the Web Nazi.
They manage to make it a little less difficult to navigate through a situation that otherwise seems impossible and I can't thank them enough for that. I'm forever in their debt for how good they've all been to me recently and how good I know they're going to be to me in the future too.
So I know people care and I know people want to know what's going on. A lot of people I don't even know that well probably care a lot and they can tell something is wrong. I wanted to let everyone know that...yes, something is wrong. It's being worked out, but it remains very wrong for the time being. I do wish I could blog about all the details of everything, but I can't do that. I can maybe share more of those personally, but I'm not looking to broadcast it or spread the word too much. That isn't my place since I'm not at the root of this thing. I'm just closely connected to it and watching it all play out.
Honestly, though, if anybody reads this and wants to talk about anything or ask me anything, you can feel free to do that. If you want to say a prayer for a long-standing agnostic, I appreciate that too. But know I'm gonna be just fine and so are you and so is just about everybody else.

I'm not trying to be creepy or cryptic. Just trying to let people know what's going on, at least as much as I can right now. I have my head in this game over here. The show is where we go to get away from life's troubles. We hope that's how it is for everybody else. That's kinda the goal of it. It entertains us and takes us away from it all for four hours every day and we want it to do that for you the way it does for us.

Thanks, everybody. You're all great for the most part. Some of you are dicks, but not that many and I appreciate that.

Chin up!
Good luck Nine, will pray. Keep your baby close, these first months are SO important. Need to form trust with caregiver and keep up nutrition. She's lucky to have you.

You, too, shall prevail
So sorry to hear about your troubles Nine. If DSS is involved, it's useful to know that they get State funding every time a case is "Opened," regardless if it's valid or not, and the longer it stays open the more they benefit. I know this firsthand after my psychiatricly-impaired teenage daughter filed a false report against me at her school about a year and a half ago. Fortunately, there was an attorney who used to do work for DSS at the firm I was working for at that time. Even after my daughter admitted to making it up, they wouldn't close the case in order to keep that funding. After I moved out here to CO, the DSS worker here took one look at the file, spoke to me and my daughter, and dismissed it on site. I'm not sure how things would have worked out had I stayed in SC. I don't know about praying, but I do believe everything happens for a reason. You'll be okay, she'll eventually be okay, and your baby girl will be okay too.
