A small rant in D minor

I have reached the 'I hate my stent' part of recovery. OMG, I hate my stent. It wasn't too bad for the first two weeks, but for some reason, last Saturday or so, my body just went 'did you know there's a stent in here?!' and has been throwing a hissyfit about it. It's not a problem if I'm sitting in the recliner, but if I try to sit up straight or stand or lie down, everything starts spasming. I got a stern Mom Lecture last night about giving in and resting and not worrying about whether I'm helping about the house or not. But, like, last night I was trying to put left over rice away and I couldn't stand up long enough to find a lid for the Tupperware container. I'm that level of pathetic. It's coming out on Thursday, which seems like a very long way away, but is at least in sight.

In other 'let's complain about things' news, some person is robot-spamming with anonymous reviews spewing hate against "CU", which apparently is some group called 'Critics United' on there. Every day, one of my stories gets about 10-30 spam guest reviews all saying the same thing and there's nothing I can do to stop it. I guess it's been going on for a month sitewide, but I've only been hit in the last week. The owners of the site don't seem to be doing anything about it and the only option appears to be deleting the story, which feels like letting the bad guys win. Not a great problem in the grand scheme of things, but annoying.

So, I've just been doing a lot of knitting and listening to music and watching people play video games on youTube. It's Canadian Thanksgiving tomorrow, but we aren't up to hosting or cooking a big dinner, so we're going to my brother's for spaghetti and cheesecake tomorrow night. Which is fine, Thanksgiving is about being with your family, not a big fancy meal. Mom is doing a lot better and has been very active lately, which is good. Once I get this stent out, I think things will start to be back to normal. But, damn, I hate this stent.
