I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

Any chance that you or your Mom or some other close family could take the kids?  Keep them out of foster care at least?

Apparently the hospital gave the husband information for a shelter which would let him take the kids and get out of the house away from her if he needed. He hasn't yet, and she's calmed down. In a few weeks, there will be a follow up with a shrink, and we're pushing them to not only visit a family therapist, but also try to get a family doctor.

 

But yeah: we're right back to one day at a time for the moment.

 

Edit: day's done. Parents went back to collect my sister and take her back to the hospital. She apparently attacked her husband. I don't have details, but she goes back into the rubber room for a while. She SEEMED like she was calming down, but then...

 

My brain is burning...

Welp, she adamantly REFUSED to go to the hospital, so the best they could do to get her away from her children was to bring her HERE. This is going to end in tears and police cars.

 

Edit: alright, seems like we've forced enough of the pills down her throat that she's starting to take them voluntarily. She's surprisingly calm. The problem stemmed from the fact that her psychosis was making her BADLY misinterpret the instructions regarding volumes, and the med tech at the hospital didn't give her an ordered regimen, literally writing "as needed" on the prescription. We need to get enough into her to make her either voluntarily keep taking MORE than the one pill a day until the hospital calls back, or voluntarily go to the hospital for more treatment.

And it's over. She took a 2 hour nap, and when she woke up immediately started fighting about the pills again. We called 911 and between how she was acting, and what we said, and what her husband said: she was bound by law to the hospital. Once again committed.

i spent a week in the hospital after my suicide attempt...it was one of the best things that ever hapened to me. Hopefully being in there, she'll open up and accept the help.

 

When i got out, they had me on Lithium...and i could never get the levels right, so i was just crazy, angry, nauseous, and vomiting for 2 months...thankfully after i weened myself off of them and my mind balanced out...I haven't broken in an extreme way since. (also, the post-hospital place I was supposed to visit and be evaluated was seemingly populated with nothing but incredibly beautiful women...so I pretty much completely refused to go there after the second time...so me learning to deal with my stuff on my own and not breaking down was due to both stubbornness and angry loneliness... but atleast something good came out of it.)

 

but seriously, I hope the hospital does her good. Hey Wonko, are you planning on visiting her?

Her last time stuck in was only good for about 5 years. She didn't think she was in the wrong then, and she still doesn't NOW. She will more than likely be on some kind of medication for a very long time after this bout, and she might even lose the right to live with her kids because child services is going to get involved.

 

I don't know if I'm going to visit her. The last week has been ridiculously stressful, and I'm still angry at her for lying to us for all these years.

Sorry to hear about your sister, Wonko. It sounds like a lot has happened this week.

I do know what it's like to have a sibling that, putting it mildly, you want to put a boot up their ass. I can absolutely understand why you're mad at her right now. You have a lot of very legitimate reasons to be very, very, angry with her right now. Lying to you for years about her meds, getting CPS involved with your nieces and nephews. I haven't had the experience, thank heavens, but I'm sure having CPS coming into your family's life has to be a very scary thing. I'm sure there've been families permanently estranged for much less.
 
I would encourage you, after you've had some time to collect your thoughts and put some time into the situation, to try and remember though that she is your sister. She's done a lot of horrible things, it sounds like. And like I said, I know full well what it's like to have a grudge against a sibling...for a lot less than what she's done. But also, if she has been off her meds for so long, she must have been way out of her mind. I'm not saying that excuses what she did at all. Just that, she is human and she is your sister. 
 
Given time, I hope your family can heal and that you and your sister can patch things up. Not saying it'll be easy or that it won't take time. But it won't be easy and it will take time. But I do hope that you can.
 
Mean time, I hope your niece(s)/nephew(s) are okay. I hope they're allowed to stay with family. In any case, it sounds like they have a tough road in front of them. I hope you get to at least keep up with them. They'll probably need all the family they can get. I'll be praying for you.

 

Meanwhile, in a less serious update, my last post I said how my therapist gave a suggestion that I ask my doctor about an antidepressant. Well, as of today, I am no on Prozac (the generic form at least).

I know it's stupid a stupid sentiment. After all, you have a headache, you take Excedrin. You have a heartburn, you take Zantac. You have high blood pressure, you take *gets the bottle because hell if I can remember what that stuff it called* Amlodipine. So yeah, if you have chronic depression, you take an antidepressant.

So yeah, I know it's a stupid sentiment, but I've always felt this stigma about needing antidepressants to "be normal." But, here I am.

It's stupid I know. It just makes me feel like I've failed some how.

That's a very common sentiment. Sometimes depression just isn't a battle you can win on your own; think of antidepressants as reinforcements, not a surrender.

It takes a surprising amount of strength to ask for help. Getting the pills isn't admitting defeat: it's rallying for another run at better mental health.

It's one of those things that I know in my head. And I don't know that it's antidepressants in particular or more of a thing where...in my entire life, I've never had to be put on any kind of 'for the rest of you life' type prescription. Now I have blood pressure meds and depression meds. It's just another reminder that I'm not as young as I used to be and sooner or later, the body just falls apart and I hate it.
 
 

If you think about it, what is the difference between that and taking medicine for a headache?

 
Nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, anxiety, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite, tiredness, thoughts of suicide, irregular heartbeat, vision changes, decreased labido...

...

Actually kinda hoping for that last one.

I'm already on two and they're not even for depression.

 

So, like, if I can take Metformin and VitD2, then I don't see why anyone else can't take Bupropion or Lithium or whatever they need to be happy.

Yeah, I'm on blood thinner and metformin.  I hate it, but without the blood thinner my blood gets all overclottish and becomes potentially life threatening, so I take it, pride be damned.  But yes, it is a symptom of getting older, sadly.

 

This is my admittedly incoherent way of saying that there's nothing wrong with taking medicine.

So today's my third day on the Prozac. It really was nothing to get worked up over I can see now. It's still too soon to say how it's affecting me. Only been three days. I do feel calmer. But given the short period of time, I'm not sure whether I can attribute that to the meds or coincidence. Could just be after such a shitstorm, I just finally wore myself out. Either way, I'm feeling a bit calmer now. And another med to take is just another med to take.

I have been super depressed for the past few months and I am starting to realize that it is because I just don't have anyone to talk too. Like, not talk to about my depression, but talk to as in just fucking talk to someone. Anyone I try to reach out to and make friends with either ignores me or just blows me off and it really hurts. The person that I used to feel confident in talking to isn't there anymore. They're gone and I will never have them back like how I used too. 

 

Sure I have a large family, but that doesn't help when you're the head of the family and they all look up to you making it impossible for you to show any sign of weakness. I've just been really stressed lately and the person that used to be my only friend is gone and I can never get them back again.
