Monday appointment
3pm
$41 for the medicine of death
$90 to turn you to ash
cancer is no
respecter
of species

Spyder,
what would you say
if you knew
what was coming?

The question haunts me
and you aren’t even
dead yet

Hi! I am an artist, author, and blogger who also happens to have Asperger’s Syndrome. I have won several awards and honors for my writings and artwork. I suffer from a few severe mental illness and chronic pain conditions (Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, Ehlers Danlos, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc.), which greatly affects my life and makes me want to advocate for others going through similar things. Other interests of mine include reading, writing, drawing, watching cartoons and movies, collecting toys, hanging out with my family, and annoying my 3 cats.

  1. Sending you hugs. I can’t even like this post, because I can feel your pain. From one cat lover to another and especially as my last cat had cancer too. Xx

  2. This is awful. I’m so, so sorry. Will be thinking of you & Spyder today. I know they’d say “you’re doing the best for him, taking away his pain”, but it doesn’t feel like that when you’re taking them to the vets and letting them go. It just hurts like hell. Sending love  ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

      1. I understand.
        My parents did the same thing, but for my dog a long time ago, I was about 10 years at that time.
        It was a great dog that took care of our house and was a great companion so we had to end his pain and called in the doctor.

        Now he is buried in the back of the house and a great tree has raised in the place were we buried him. I will always miss that dog!
