So through December I hit a depressive state, and all my girls felt it especially my wife. I ended up frying 3 plants. Didn't help the depression at all, but I got over it. Then my wife brings home covid, we have to isolate and I got to spend some much needed time with my girls. We kick covid to the curb with minimal long term effects. Then Friday at work something in my calf pops and I'm almost taken to the ground from pain. Everyone sees me hobbling around asks what happened, the boss is worried about a worker's comp claim, and I have a job I'm sworn to complete. I get through the day on severe amounts of pain. To shorten the story, it's looking like at least a partially ruptured Achilles tendon

I'm sorry to hear you're having a hard time. Be strong.

Peace ✌

Here's another one, Kona Orange? Not so feminized. BALLS!
Well, rest in peace. Time to start another one.

G, my dude, you have sent plenty to keep me going. And I appreciate you offering more but I'm OK. Still got three chances with that strain so I'm thinking Kona Maui and Blue Mataro are next.

At this point, I'd be wondering if I'm making stuff up, and I really wish I was. Do your best to keep your indoor cat, an indoor cat. Mine got a taste for the wild a few years ago and noone could keep her inside when she wanted to go out. Well last night she didn't come home, and this afternoon we found her. No details, but we're having her cremated. I know to many of you she was "just a cat" but I lost a 15 year companion.

I don't want to know how strong I can be, stop the testing.

My condolences Joheim. Animals are special friends.

I recall back when I disliked the company but felt personally committed to coworkers, and I would come into work half dead to get things done for them. You are a real trooper, and this will pass. I know it sucks now but there will be better times to follow.

Still haven't gone back to work.
Forgot to update in a while. "High grade strain/tear with possible rupture of the gastronemius muscle". No surgery thus far.
I had a follow up today and the Doctor was concerned because of my lack of progress. So he grabbed an ultrasound and found a "large hematoma" in between the muscle masses. Decided to drain it, which caused immediate pressure relief. They pulled almost 60cc of fluid from my calf. I can almost walk without a limp.

Another one bites the dust. Kona Maui was a boy. Going to start some more soon. I've still got Kona Ghost and I believe it was called Purple Healer? (Alaskan Purple x Master Kush) by Swarleyseeds going right now. They've just started into veg. And I'm glad I haven't given any of my clones out. I have thrips. Easily treatable, just irritating, and I can't treat my Green Crack, she's only 3-4 weeks from harvest. Going to be a 100+day auto.

Well, it is nice that even when the cards are falling, every now and again, they drop an Ace. Thus morning I got notification that I won another light. And holy crap this one is even more expensive than the last one I won.
My wife looked at me when I told her and said "I'm not buying you another tent(I have 3, one not in use)" but I need a bigger one again. I'm wondering at this point should I just forget about the tents and just light up the whole room?

I try to tell people in tight financial situations to pay attention to their hobby forums with giveaways. No not all forums have them but if they do you might as well try. I have now won 2 insane lights i could  NEVER have afforded, much less would have paid their price tags. I've won some seeds also. (I'm working on some fems of them, just need more time) Just throwing your hat inthe ring can be enough to get things you wouldn't have ever bought yourself.
