  1. FINAL UPDATE: DS is home!! He feels better mentally, even when compared to how he feels a day after he has electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)! The doc added Lithium to help his antidepressant medication. I hope it continues to work because he is now at a 7 on an increasing scale of depression instead of a 9 (after ECT). Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts. We all really appreciate you!
  2. Chef-Boy-Ar-Dee Spaghetti and Meatballs, directly from the can. If it is heated, I hate it -- it tastes and smells bad. Liverwurst, chicken livers, beef liver. Onions, asparagus Fresh spinach added to homemade soups.
  3. Nutella, hummus, olives, sour cream, cream cheese, yogurt, mayo, arugula, sausage gravy, hot peppers, hot sauces, quinoa, anything with banana except an actual banana.
  4. I guess with his three talkative siblings there, the nurse wanted to avoid hearing about how DS must have his Kindle. Because they took it away -- no electronics. We brought him some books.
  5. Thank you for your prayers. Yes, we have support. My DS has been severely depressed for a decade, and we have been through this before.
  6. Thank you. I'm fine. DH has gone to bed. The kids are on their way home. Hospital won't let them accompany DS to his room b/c it is a locked ward. Nurse has DS's backpack with Kindle, phone, and laptop. I hope they let him keep that stuff, especially his Kindle. I think he'd rather have the kindle than the phone b/c it isn't a smart phone.
  7. He has tried and been rejected because he hasn't tried to commit suicide. He has been having electroconvulsive therapy for nearly 1.5 years. So far, that has brought him up to having suicidal thoughts daily, but not actively considering doing it. For several months he's been going once every 2 weeks instead of weekly. He's gotten worse since then.

Thank you for your prayers and good thoughts. We all really appreciate you! **** He has treatment resistant depression. He is at ER with his siblings because he is actively suicidal. He is a devout Christian, so I'd appreciate prayer for him. Thank you. (I am not th
  9. My husband has both ASD and narcissism. Two of my sons have ASD -- one milder than the other. They are not narcissistic. That makes a lot of difference.
  10. Our mothers would get along just fine.
  11. That is a good question. Who would think that anyone would refuse a safety measure like that? My mom has. I suspect she doesn't want to face that she needs it.
  12. Long ago, when Ted Turner televised the Goodwill Games, I looked around the office and no one was working. I asked loudly where everyone was and why they weren't working. Answer: Water Polo was about to come on. "Oh, Good," I said. "I can't wait to see how they get the horses in the pool!" When I found out there were no horses involved, I returned to being the only person working. I never lived that one down, to this day. (I keep in touch with some of my former coworkers from Turner.) And I still don't know what water polo is. I'll go look it up. Looked it up and it looks
  13. When I was dating DH, I had long blonde hair. I wanted shorter curly red hair. So I had it done. When I went to DH's place to show him, he laughed uncontrollably. He thought I was playing a joke on him by wearing a Ronald McDonald wig. In his favor, I was well-known for playing elaborate practical jokes. Needless to say, we fixed it with some super heavy duty conditioner which took out the curl. Neither one of us remember what we did with the red color, but it got gone, for sure!
