    I want to go home!

    Need to vent

    I want to preface this by saying that there's no real purpose to this post. I just want to vent in a place where people can respond if they want to, but I don't expect anyone to do so. I will also be discussing depression, eating disorders, suicide, etc, so I would like this to be my content...

    My mandatory annual physical

    I never want to go and have skipped many. I did go in about a month ago to get a COPD dx and inhalers. I am impatient waiting for them to call me back from the waiting room. So they weighed me, took my blood pressure and my oxygen level, didn't tell me what any of them were. I asked about...
