When the bulling took its toll and my girl was committed to a mental institution for a short time. And nobody ever touched the bullies. I didn’t have proof, but in order to obtain proof , I would have to secretly record them, which is illegal. So dealing with bullies in Japan is sort of Catch 22.

Record them, post the recording anonymously online. At least then they do not know who to prosecute except the bullies.

I had a stroke. It was minor, no long lasting effects, but it was still terrifying. I'm only 44 years old. If you've been meaning to get healthier, but take the attitude "I'll do it when things start to get hard," don't. Do it now. I literally woke up and couldn't speak right for half a day. It could have just as easily killed me. Quit smoking today. Start a healthy diet today. Tomorrow isn't guaranteed.

Toss up between Noro virus and bad case if Influenza. Noro virus had ne vomiting and crapping half my guts out. The influenza had me wanting to stab my head open to relieve the pressure since it felt as though my head was going to burst from the pain.

The loss of a 35 year friendship due to an illness diagnosis

After getting bullied at work end of 2022, I started to rethink my job. I decided to ask for a wage and more responsabilities and tasks. 3 months into 2023, my boss got sick of me, started gadloghting me and when I went home overwhelmed, I got a letter next day being fired ("reorganisation" was the reason he stated). I fell back in my depression.. a month later, I had a kidneystone and surgery.
Half a year later I found a new job, more pay for less hours, more appreciation and coworkers who don't bully me and a boss who says I fit in (instaid of gaslighting me).

This was a good ending. I am so happy that 2023 ended up being nice after that horrible start.

Lost my job which was paying enough to cover all my costs... and now have had to beg friends for small pieces here and there. Got so bad I had to sleep in my car briefly. I've never gotten that rock-bottom before. What's scary is I am old and it's kinda hard to start over.

Attempted gaslighting from some of my middle school students - they never learned any social norms about respecting elders during the pandemic, and refused to take any responsibility for their actions. Because I maintained fidelity to the curriculum, they felt that I wasn't honoring their beliefs or their interests, and because they felt that they shouldn't have to follow school rules that impinge on their perceived freedoms, they shouldn't be held accountable for their actions. They would repeatedly lie about what they did in class and tried to make it look like I was wronging them, both through false accusations against me and through their denials of any rule breaking. Eventually, my administration recognized how toxic these students were and had them shifted to another teacher, but the mental health stress made me panicky about entering into my classroom, and I've been teaching for 30 years now.

TL;DR - Students tried to gaslight me and my administration over their right to break school rules.

"I have a right to learn the facts as I believe them and only study the subjects I want to study." Equals, "I have the right to be an undereducated idiot."

Had my gallbladder die and get removed.

Had a stroke. Not being able to move the whole left side if my body was terrifying.

Had to put down my dog.

Hearing "pain free is not the goal" from a dr I had hoped could help me. It was a struggle to accept that. Not sure I have yet

Aiming for pain free should still be an option, though. A dr should encourage you. Do you think you can do some research on whatever condition you have (can it possibly be pain free?) And perhaps if other doctors have some expertise in your condition? I'm sorry that your doctor made that remark to you. I hope you'll get better in 2024 😊

The permanent end of a friendship, someone I viewed as family. We separated in 2022, which I thought we might eventually patch up or remain casual friends. Then in 2023 I found out how much trash talking and backstabbing she had done about me while I kept silent about her.

She still doesn't know I have audio recordings and documents from when she was hospitalized (mental health, suicide attempts, etc.). Only three people know, they were involved in her hospitalization. The docs and recordings are being kept in case she's hospitalized again.

Started the year with a 10x10cm ovarian cyst causing ovary torsion, so emergency surgery. Ended the year with a diagnosis of carpel tunnel in both wrists, bursitis in one shoulder and muscle problems in the other!

Being rejected by my crush. She did it very respectfully, but it still hurts none the less.

Yeah it happens to a lot of us. I’ve had it happen too but once me and him became “friends” I kinda lost the 6 year crush that I had and then just eventually lost interest. He goes to a different school now. The reason I put friends with quotation marks is because it was more of like a situationship cause we always flirted with each other. No I’ve moved on and realized that there’s more to life than boys and who’s dating who. I now have 2 boys that like me. So my best advice is to move on and seek new relationships and friendships cause you never know if you become friends with a really sweet and pretty girl. Who knows she might like you. All with the best love, Lena :)
