Truth #15

Last September, I drunkenly made a time capsule one night when my kitchen was being remodeled. I filled a box with random stuff, pictures, and a note with probably too much personal information (basically everything about me minus my social security number). I secretly hid it in the insulation of a wall before my contractor closed it up.

I’m still deciding if this was a great idea… or a fucking fire hazard…

It’s probably just a fire hazard though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Perhaps you wish to leave your deep marks…to reveal who you really are…somewhere you’re tired of being anonymous in that mask…so you hide the box with sort of keepsakes…are you really afraid of that box as a fire hazard?? Perhaps I’m thinking over but I write what I sense from your words….Apologies if I hit the arrow at the wrong point…๐Ÿ™

  2. Haha, jesus you’re so creative/spontaneous!

    Ok I researched this to death, simply because I don’t like to just state stuff or avoid a problem!

    The only obvious thing that would make it potentially a fire hazard would be electrical wiring near to it, which if it short-circuited/overloaded at that point might then be able to ignite it. If it’s catching fire from a fire started elsewhere, then it must be too severe for your little box to make any difference.

    “Outdated wiring often causes electrical fires. If a home is over 20 years old, it may not have the wiring capacity to handle the increased amounts of electrical appliances in todayโ€™s average home, such as computers, wide-screen televisions, video and gaming players, microwaves and air conditioners.

    Breakers should be triggered when circuits get overloaded by too much electricity, but outdated breaker boxes often have worn connectors that do not work, causing the system to overload and start an electrical fire.”

    Overall sounds very unlikely. And even if there was a fire, the type of insulation is going to be the much more major factor it seems. ๐Ÿ˜†

      1. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ. That’s ridiculous! Any more crazy coincidences that you want to share? Do you listen to My Chemical Romance? Lol, just a band I’ve got back into recently.

        Honestly I keep thinking of rum now whenever I’m in the supermarket…๐Ÿคฃ. It’s only a matter of time before I go full pirate again. Should probably stock up before the coronapocalypse. Shit that’s a good word! Rum will be currency.

      1. Adderall helped my anxiety actually. I don’t want be be stuck on any more meds… I hate relying on meds to make me feel good ya know? Plus it’s a pain to get controlled substances prescribed here… I don’t know how easy it is for you guys there.

      2. It definitely helped mine too, actually! (Initially, back when I was less traumatised). I’d love to see how it is in calmer times.

        I know what you mean, I was initially against it and trying other things first. But given the benefits I remember having, and the lifetime of struggles, I’ll take it :). The way I see it is that without it, I’ll only get the same level of focus with a lifestyle that’s so thrill-seeking and active that it’s unrealistic. That it makes less thrill-seeking activities more rewarding is pretty miraculous!

      3. Oh yeahโ€” well, the ADHD medications basically just have to be prescribed by a psychiatrist, which means my GP can’t prescribe them. So it’s just a case of waiting on the waiting list for long enough to start getting them prescribed. Then once I have, it should be no problem after that. I was getting it through a private psychiatrist before, which I could againโ€” just costs ยฃ100 a month though! Through the NHS it would be free.

      4. That’s interesting. We just go to our primary doctor here. No psych needed…. But you have to hand deliver the script from the doctor to the pharmacy every month here because it’s a controlled substance.

      1. My contractor found them behind the old cabinets. Like a recipe for chocolate cake and one for butterscotch frosting lol. They’re pretty though for I’ve framed them and put them up in the kitchen. Bread and butter pudding?!?! That must be a British thing lol

      2. Thank you!! I actually fell asleep not long after I wrote that, even whilst waiting to go get food I was desperately needing. I fell asleep at 4pm and woke at 12:40 to start the day ๐Ÿคฃ. Man it’s so fucking nice to begin the day in the middle of the night!! That’s the greatest thing that Sertraline gives meโ€” when I’m not disturbed by noise I have so much choice over when I sleep.

      3. Yeah… I live in an area off a small City. I technically live in a village ( most safe village in Wisconsin btw lol). But like eight minutes away there’s like meth heads and shit… It wasn’t like this when I was little…
