I think this might work better in an individual thread in the water cooler since not everyone reads the posts in here. I say go for it and see if you get any takers. My tablet is broken right now so I have to sit at desk or use my phone, which is much harder for me.

I figured the suggestion would be seen better here. Fiction Forum, I presume?

Know what? I just checked the last Neverending Story, and it wasn't finished! Let's finish it, and start a new one....

I finished the last Neverending Story, and started a new one.

Yesterday morning, I tripped on a neighbor's backpack, fell and sprained my left arm. My knees were hit, below the kneecaps, but aren't that sore. Taking my shower this morning was a bit of a challenge, as is going to the bathroom. Worst is trying to put my waistpurse on. Went to work--phone was dead so I couldn't call in--and pastors Brian and Terry said rest all you need. So I went online, did my email, looked up treating a sprain, and tried to find an urgent care clinic that takes my provider of Cal-Optima. One place was not a Cal-Optima provider; another place didn't do walk-ins; a third place they sent me to didn't take my Cal-Optima provider. They gave me a sheet with another clinic on it, but I just gave up, went to Rite Aid and, after seeing they wanted $31 for a sling, said forget that and bought a set of 3 dish towels and a box of 50 safety pins and made my own sling.
Definitely am going to change my provider.

Took me a week, but finally went to see my doctor. He sent me for x-rays. Yesterday at church I got my arm and right knee prayed for, and I can use my arm, though it and the knee are still a bit sore. I was getting sick of that sling, anyway; it attracted bedbugs, and as a result was spotted with blood from when I killed the disgusting little pests. They stink to high heaven when crushed, too.
The pest control came out Saturday, but we still have bedbugs; I've seen them drop from the ceiling.
And trying to talk with Miss Doris, who runs the shelter, got nowhere; today she was in a rotten mood, blaming us for having what she considers to be too much stuff being the reason we have bedbugs.
Yesterday I came home from church and shopping to find my suitcase missing from the end of my bed. This morning a witness said they saw my the staff rolling up the bed of someone who had left, and they took my suitcase by mistake. I have asked for it back, but they say I can't have it by my bed. Everything either goes into our bins for storage or it goes under our beds.
Look, I've been here for 15 months; at first, I was told it was okay for me to have my suitcase by my bed. Then I was told to put it in my bin. I did, but because of the bottom of the bin has space carved out to fit the wheels, my suitcase didn't quite fit. The lid wouldn't close all the way. It was like that for a year, then I was told to take my suitcase out so the lid would close. Now they say it has to be under my bed (won't fit) or in storage. And there's stuff in my suitcase that is used frequently, and half the time when I want to get stuff out, nobody's there when they should be. Consistency would be nice; or as I was taught growing up, do things right or don't do them at all. I wish they would make up their minds, but it's like they don't have any to make up. I wish I could get out of this stupid shelter.
