This thread is meant to be for RANTS and RANTING. Then Rant again. We need a place to simply get rid of the anger. Write it here. Unleash it all. Get it out. This isn't meant for the Stupid comments(great thread). This is for the gut wrenching, tell them off anger.

IMPORTANT: When done ranting don't necessarily stick around. Toxic. Drop the rant and find a better thread.

Only rules: Please, follow them as the Mods will shut it down in a heartbeat( waving Mods)

1. Be careful to not mention docs, nurses, hospitals by name. Defamation and all that tedious legal stuff

2. If it's caused by someone on BCO, just don't mention their name. I think the exception will be if someone is stalking you, blow their anonymity wide open. A stalker doesn't deserve politeness.

3. If you think the rant is about you, let it go, they're no names. Don't take it personal. This is the steam room.

4. If they're is a fight, don't expect the Mods to moderate, it was your choice to come here.

5. After writing a rant, do nothing more, re-read at a future time. Decide if it's important enough for you to cut and paste the rant to whomever caused you the anger. It's a choice. Sometimes it needs to be done, but remember they're can be fall out.

6. ######## pound those keys, SCREAM(caps), J*&R$WSDF&(swear)

7. Religion and politics discussion should go to those topical threads. IF their is something that impacts cancer, it belongs here.

I will revise topic box as needed-sassy

For puking and the color works pukeewogh

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".

I have not even had my own hair cut at all since COVID and live with a transplant DH in the house so we are so careful. Chopped off 6" on the back deck of our house a year and half ago but it down to my waist now and driving me crazy and need a major cut but do not feel safe going at all anywhere. Hate feeling trapped because we are afraid to go anywhere.

I’ve started cutting my own hair with just a little help from my younger daughter. It’s a simple straight blunt cut. Before cancer I had very long hair, but with all the meds trying their best to thin my hair , it looks better short. At least my hair is still dark.

I went gray early (staring in my late 20's even heredity). Dyed it for many years since did not want gray hairs with my dark hair. Dyed at home myself but when cancer surgery could not do it anyway let it go and that was it and now all gray. Figure I'm in my 60's now so not as bad. Gray and young with kids was sad.

There’s a local news anchor who let her hair go gray during the pandemic. It’s stunning. πŸ‘

I letmy hair go grey during the pandemic and I really like it! I knew that I would eventually stop coloring it. I also let it grow to collar bone length. I now have mostly very dark brown spiral curls (natural) with silvery grey framing my face. I am very happy with it and saving money since my hairdresser used to color it and it was not cheap!

Pre-Covid, I used to frost my hair but then nature took its course and it is now silvery gray frosting rather than ash blonde. It has always been baby fine but was much thicker before all the AI's. My last haircut pre-Covid was in January 2020 since my next appointment in early March was canceled by the lockdown. I let it grow and wear it most days in a ponytail since it doesn't seem to want to curl anymore. I have ventured into the local walk-in salon picking times of low volume and they mandate masks. So I have had it trimmed twice in the last year. They just cut off the dead ends and blunt cut it. So I call it my Covid cut. It is probably not all that flattering but it is minimal upkeep and that suits me for right now since we seldom go anywhere other than grocery shopping and to medical appointments. I agree coloring it was not cheap so having that extra money to use elsewhere has been great, too.

I had been cutting my own hair for years pre-Covid, so I've got my regular short messy hair I've had for years. And I hadn't colored it since a year or two before cancer, so that's been at least five years. If my shoulders get any more painful, I'm out of luck.

Oh for heaven's sake, all of the crap going on in my life and now the tenants in my back apartment were fighting with each other and calling the cops during the night. I found out because, of course, sleeping soundly after finally falling asleep during the loud fireworks being set off all around by neighbors, the cops wake us up in the front banging on our windows looking for the guys who are fighting in the back.... Still up now after being scared awake, insomnia.....

re: hair, I understand about being unhappy with your hair. Perhaps you can find someone to cut your hair outside. I have a friend who cuts hair in the backyard, got a good business going through covid cutting hair outside. Mostly word of mouth referrals. I have only had one haircut total since last June though....

For me, weirdly enough, my previously almost straight brown hair grew back in super curly and partially grey and actually looks great short. Best hairstyle I've had in decades, compliments of chemo. Everyone who sees me now without a hat tells me how great I look. More compliments on my hair than I had in my whole previous life when I spend hundreds of dollars to get the perfect hairstyle over and over....

oldladyblue that is hard to deal with and hope you can get some rest. Some people are so rude and have no sense. Makes you wonder if they were not raised with any manners at all if you ask me. We always taught ours growing up to be quiet and not disturb anyone else. If you are making enough noise to bother someone else you are too loud.
