These past few months, I've been waiting for yesterday to come. A horror type comic con named Cil-Con was to take place at my small local mall, and advetrised was Philo Barnhart who worked on Fimls such as The Little Mermaid, Secret of Nihm, Beauty and The Beast, Star Trek, Smurfs, and others was gonna have a panel. Well, my dad I were the only ones that showed up, so him and I talked for an hour an a half. I got insider stories that I couldn't have gotten anywhere, behind the scene of The Little Mermaid. It honestly transported me back 13 years ago when I met with Roy Disney. I'm gonna make a bigger post later in the Disney Discussion, but I'll give you a little taste of what's to come. There were four animators who worked on the banned Little Mermaid cover was made, and the company asked one of them to please step forward, no one did, so they were fired.

So, yeah it was truly magical for me, once again, out of the blue, I get to experience something many Disney fans hardly are able to do, and it was all in my own backyard. Feeling blessed. College starts on Monday, and I'm revved up and ready to go.

Oh, my, this is such amazing and good news! You are so lucky! I wonder if the guys who made the Little Mermaid cover really intended to put a male anatomy in it or if they didn't and were honest that they didn't and were fired anyway.

Well, didn't think I'd be posting in about this thread in the link ever again. I am happy to report though it's good news. I had to see a new GI doctor because the previous one had to retire and ended up seeing the main head of GI at this hospital. The new doctor's name is the name of the clinic.

viewtopic.php?t=28830&start=80

I informed him of all the insano things I went through, getting excommunicated, not being able to see a doctor at one of the local clinics, even if this GI doctor came to where I live I could not see him, but I could see him in the town an hour away from where I live. In addition, I can't get my blood drawn there either. Now let me be clear, I am glad things worked out how they did, I got an amazing family doctor, now have an amazing GI doctor. That said, I've kinda wanted this reversed. I asked someone locally and they said in order for me to try to be allowed to come just to get blood work, I'd have to right a letter in lamens term say I have to be a good boy kind of letter. Well, the new GI doctor was dumbfounded, and said, the doctor who did this to me can't do that, it's not legal. So, he ordered me blood work to be done at the local clinic where I am banned. I told him that in the system my name comes up and it locks me out. So with this test, if I am turned away, I am to call the new GI doctor because he is gonna step in and say Ahem.... basically he'll say uh no this isn't right and reverse this.

I right now am feeling happier than I have been in a long time, like heavy weight has been lifted off of my shoulder. I can't even begin to exlpain. Been crying all day, but happy tears. It seems the he second half of this year is going better than the first.

I'm vindicated. ust can't believe it, feels like a dream, but one that is finally going to come true.

I had to put down my dog Oliver today. One of the absolute hardest things I've ever had to do, if not the hardest. He was yelping and at first was walking around and wouldn't sit, and then once he did lay down, he couldn't get back up. The vet said it was probably a tumor on his spinal cord. It was just very sudden. My heart is very broken. He was my best friend for 8.5 years. Such a good, good boy. I miss him so, so much. I know that we don't have all the members we used to, but for those who knew about Oliver, I couldn't not post.

Oh, I am so, so sorry Amy! That is so sad. He sounded like a great friend to you. May he rest in peace.

Michael, I am glad about your new GI doctor and how things are looking up for you!

Condolences Amy :(

Six years ago I had to make the painful admission that our Bob (also a Dog) would be best off passing on :cry:

The misery does linger for a while but you can take comfort in knowing that you did what any devoted Pet owner would :star:


I know it's been a while since you posted, Michael but I'm glad things are going well with your new GI specialist :)

The last time I posted in this thread was when my Oliver passed away. (It was 8 months ago last Sunday- I still miss him so much every day.)

Since then, we adopted 2 dogs when we lived in our apartment; then we moved to a house and adopted 2 more! So we have 4 dogs. One, Lucy, has cancer (she had had a mass sent to the pathologist before we adopted her, but then the results came back positive). It's carcinoma-- she had a mass in her mouth. She already had one surgery, but there's still cancer. :( The rescue group we adopted her from paid for her medical care before we adopted her (obviously) and they paid for that surgery and a CT scan. They have already paid thousands for Lucy, and they just can't anymore, since they have many other dogs in their care. My husband and I are going to set up a GoFundMe for her; hopefully friends and strangers will be able to help alleviate the $2000+ surgery cost. It's been making me a nervous wreck. The vet is hopeful that this surgery will get the rest of the cancer out (but again, the last vet who did the last surgery said that that surgery often gets the cancer out. I'm just worried that if this surgery doesn't get all the cancer out, she'll have to go on chemo...I'd have to do research into quality-of-life for dogs on chemo. I brought it up to the vet, who said that it's a lot lower dose than humans get, but if she's going to feel crappy all day every day, it doesn't make sense.

If anyone can pray, send positive energy our way, that would be very welcome. I've been a nervous wreck over this. I just want Lucy to be cancer free... :( <3

Amy, be sure to link the GoFundMe page when you guys get it set up! I’d love to send a little help for Lucy and I’m sure others would too. (Hugs!)

Thank you! <3 <3 (Mods, please let me know if this isn't allowed.)
www.gofundme.com/help-lucy-beat-carcinoma-fund is the link! We'd never made one before- my husband said make sure to post videos and more photos, but except for updates, I don't see where to!

Thank you again Karen- I'm about to cry- I just appreciate it!

IIRC, Karen is a mod, so it's allowed. Best of luck Amy! I'm not able to donate as of now, but I hope all goes well for Lucy.

Yeah, hoping for the best, Amy, for the little dog.


Well, I'm about to graduate, but honestly stuff just feels aimless for me. I'm graduating in a Linguistics degree (so...sorta like English for the USA), but honestly at least in the countries I've been living, it's pretty much a very low paying degree, and you can't do much with it work-wise unless you get into masters or courses to help you extra. Here I am, at 24, aimless, without knowing what to do, with a useless degree that took me ages to finish (I have problems studying as well...Neat). I don't know what to do at this point, the only options I have to get a stable job is to either get a masters in another field, since the masters related to my education (languages, Education, translation) don't lead to well-paying jobs (I'm thinking either Marketing/Publishing or International Commerce, instead), or enroll into my country's Diplomatic Academy (Which the entrance exam they say is difficult, and it seems they only value specific degrees over others, even though the official list says they accept anyone with ANY degree, but eh, once you're in, you have a stable income for life), or once in my country go to a cooking school for 2-3 years while working aside and dedicate my life to cooking (which is swell since I actually do have a knack for cooking, and it's a booming work field in my country for the last years). My lack of experience these years in the work field I also fear may hinder my job opportunities or the ability to get a masters (and not because I didn't want to work, honestly...I had a permit that didn't allow me to work all those years. It has honestly hindered me more than helped me in the long run).

Like, I was dumb, sheltered and stupid at 18, went to bad schools (the schools even had the gall to promote the "useless" careers, like philosophy, we had an entire course dedicated to philosophy in high school...Like fucking damn, it's like the school wanted us to be poor from the start), I didn't even have a proper vocational counseling, and I was rushed in to get into college, which is what probably lead to me to pick such a dumb degree, based more on my naive feelings than any genuine thought or formation regarding jobs, income...If I had taken things slower, or had proper orientation, maybe things wouldn't have turned out so bad... but it also happens that in my teens I was pretty bad at stuff like maths and the like, so Engineer or Economics would be out the window for me regarding options to study. I don't know, at this point I'm ready to get into anything as long as they accept me. I need a job.

My biggest dream is to publish my books, I've written a lot of stories in my free time these last years, plays and novels and short stories and the like, but I'm as far from publishing as I was from the start, and in a way, I got into this degree with the naive thought that it could get me close to publishing houses, and such...But nope! I'm as far as I was when I first started. I feel angry, I feel wasted, I feel envious. There are so many people my age or younger that are doing successful things with their lives, and I'm just mistake after mistake after mistake.

Sorry for such a long comment, I'm tired and nervous and I don't know on whom can I rely on for help. College was a fucking waste in that regard, most of my classmates are in the same boat as I am (the ones I'm on good speaking terms with- there were a lot of very unfriendly, competitive people in my degree as well, but I've also always had trouble being social, just now I'm noticing I reap what I sow, so it's sorta half and half- I feel I always had a problem of social, cognitive issue, due to having problems understanding concepts or making good friends, but the doctors never told me what I had- Depression, Aspergers, Down, Anxiety, Autism...Like everything goes in the bag), and my parents can only do so much (they're getting old, and sick, and we always had troubles but I really have to rely on them for these things. I could speak with my extended family for help, but we've always been so distant, and I don't wanna come off as a mooch). I feel lost and lonely, and I don't know what to do. I need to concentrate cause I still have two exams and my thesis to present on September, and I have to feel stable to study and do a good job of it and finally get rid of this horrible career, but yet...I can't stop crying and feeling like crap when I go to sleep, my stomach hurts without even eating anything, and I have a huge anxiety when it comes to going out of my room now.

Awwww thedisneyspirit, I'm sorry to hear all of your story. It's sad. But, it will be ok. Go forward with one of your options. Get the masters classes or try the Diplomatic Academy, or Marketing or Publishing (could that help you publish your writing?!), or try Cooking. I kind of feel the Cooking one, but only you know yourself enough to pick the best decision. But just go forward with something and if that doesn't work, try the next one! Don't feel too bad, you will be ok, just go after one of your choices! Although I don't know why Education would be so bad, maybe it just doesn't pay enough without a spouse with another higher paying job with you? I also don't see how you could ever be diagnosed with Down. I do know one woman who has it and isn't like retarded but she needs help in ways you don't and I don't think you could ever have it.

Thanks, Duster. Your words are valued.

About teaching, the thing is that at least in the countries I've lived in it's really one of the lowest paying jobs. I'm not sure how can I manage with that in mind, especially since I really wouldn't like to return to school anyhow (I just have memories of school).

I'm searching for any option available, but I'm still worried since there isn't enough time. My mother rejects the idea of a Masters and wants me to enroll into the Academy as soon as possible, while my father seems more interested in the Masters...I really don't know what to do. The master would take more time and money but at least I would get a certified job with it, while if I enter quickly into the Academy, I may not know enough about what they may ask and I may get fired, and they only allow two or three times. I would like cooking the most, since I really do like cooking and understand it, but again, I feel bad for starting another career again (and I'm getting pretty old, and haven't worked in a long while), and depending so much on other's money... And I don't know who to listen to. Some people say the Master is a good option, others the Academy, others cooking....

I just feel lost. And it's just bad since I really need to be calm to finish my studies and make the last exams in September, but I can't stop shaking and aching, and I can't even sleep well without feeling like crap before going to sleep and once waking up.


About the stuff of Downs, I'm not sure, since the doctors have never really found any concrete evidence regarding something like Downs or Autism / Aspergers, but many have claimed I have stuff like OCD or anxiety/depression (I think the last one is accurate at least) and often given me pills or such. I have a bad history with pills, so it's always hard for me to take any one of them, but sometimes, if the body won't help...
