Very pissed off.

Hello again all. These past few days-months even-have been very rough. Christmas/Yule was okay though. My brother came over from Louisiana to visit us here in Arizona and we exchanged loads of presents with each other.

However, after my brother left to go back to his home in Louisiana, the rough times came. My dad's breathing and sleep apnea issues got worse and he now has to retire early due to health. And my mom, I am worried that her mind is starting to slip. One time, after Christmas/Yule and before New Years Eve-even though my dad and I have told her on numerous occassions that our fireplace chimmeny is clogged and cannot be used, she went ahead and started a fire in the fireplace. Dad and my brother had to get the fire extinguisher and put the fire out as cinders and sparks were flying everywhere. And the whole house was filled with smoke so my mom thought it was a great idea to turn on the almost non-working smoke ventilator but not open all of the windows in our house and assist the ventilator. So my dad, despite all of my mom's protests and angry outbursts, opened up all of the windows and back patio doors. Then, a few days after the New Year, I woke up at 12:00 in the morning because I could not sleep very well, and went in to the kitchen to eat an early breakfast. Lo, and behold, the stove was on. Fortunately there wasn't anything near it and it was on low heat. So I turned it off and asked my mom about it. Her response? Well she was cooking that afternoon for my dad's work party and she guessed that she must've left it on. She also stated that she's glad that there was nothing near it and that I was there to turn it off! Smdh. What's next?! What would've happened if I wasn't there and there was something flammable nearby? Not only would we have lost the house to a fire, but my parents as well! As to the what's next, well, yesterday we found out, by the gas meter reading guy, that we have two gas leaks and had to shut off all of the gas lines to our house which includes the following: Stove, water heater, house heater, oven, dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer, grill, and pool. And we are without these until we can get a plumber/electrician out here to fix this, which won't be until tomorrow or sometime next week. The gas leaks are in our laundry room and outside near the grill area. I have been telling my mom FOR MONTHS that there was a funny smell going on in the laundry room and that SOMETHING needed to be done about it. Mom's reply? It's the paint on the wall. Bullshit!

I really need to move away from my parents before their actions get me seriously injured or worse, killed.

And my skin disease, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, isn't helping matters any. I have to go to the doctor in a few months and discuss some new abcesses (2) I've found and see if they require surgery. For more info on this disease, follow these links: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hidradenitis_suppurativa and

And just to cheer everyone up after such a daft and upsetting journal-here is the photo I took of a Red-tailed Hawk (Light phase) I believe.
