We've pretty much decided this is an aftereffect of her last seizure. If so, she'll get over it after some time.
Her worst seizure left her unable to put one of her back legs on the ground, for more than two weeks. I thought it would be that way forever, but eventually it resolved. I think she feels a bit insecure...but not terribly so.
I have seen her post seizure, not want to be too far away from me. She listened to me when she's outside. Takes cues not to run off too far.
She's free(r) outside this time. But she does want to be near me, overnight.
She would definitely be hot sleeping in a bed. I am working on keeping her brushed...brushed her again today. She's doing okay on that. It's like she's decided that independence isn't what it's cracked up to be.
On the other...I don't know that it's even politics. I just know if I'm treated as if I'm persona non grata, I don't hang around! It's human nature to go where you're wanted / appreciated.
I am a public figure and when someone needs someone to burn, they often choose me. And they act like I did something to them, as if that's even possible.
The only person I have met offline in the last ten years, is Jilly. I go to no other astrology websites, I bother no one, ever, and it's been this way for years...for a decade probably so who knows.
I still like the forum. I just feel it doesn't like me, so I respect this.

I think your are admired and liked a lot. You've been good to me, in fact the best anyone can be to someone they have never met. You give a lot of yourself here. So, I don't think its you. I have been here for years and watched people get a little quiet from time to time.
I do believe people actually think we are in some end of the world scenario. I hear it when they speak, see it on social media. People are really caught up in the news and protests. They are watching 'The Donald' to see what he will do next....and listening to everything that this entails.
I have a client that is so distraught and caught up in it she was crying at drop off last week. I asked her what was wrong (she was such a mess I thought family had died) she said she was sick over the president....I thought oh lord....don't let me open that can of worms....took the pooch and wished her a good day...and sent a pick-up text with a walk-out drop to avoid having a melt down in my home. She has a masters degree in nursing. She isn't normally a woman that melts down over things. This isn't the only one....there have been many since November. I just nod, do my job and go on. I really have never seen so many people this deeply disturbed. You'd think we are getting ready for nuclear war and that there is a date set and a go time..... I don't blame people for their opinion. They are entitled to it. And, their feelings count too.
The forum likes/loves you Elsa. If you could have seen this woman (I am in a blue state so its everyone around me) and seen her state of mind, it would give you an idea of where peoples heads are right now. 66 million of them. :/
I sure hope your pup is okay. I just love my furries. They give me so much joy caring for them. My dogs are such an important part of my life....they are the kids the Pisces and I never had 🙂

My husband wants a "bed bunion" for, Lila. This would be a table (like a sofa table), set at the foot of the bed, with pillows on top.
It's a nice idea, but he will be the one sleeping there, seeing as she is not leaving my head.
I am hoping in another week or so, this switches up somehow. Aquarians are like that. One day it's A, the next day it D or C or L!

I also think it's a post seizure effect.
My granddaughter is epileptic. It takes her a few weeks to recover.
My granddaughter is also the reason I don't post as often. I go with her to her therapy sessions (PT, OT, SLP). My husband Big Sadge and I babysit afterwards for the rest of the day. She's taken more of my time than what I spent on line a few years ago. I try to read every couple of days to catch up.
About the dog bed...my cousin and her husband have search and rescue/cadaver dogs. They built a dog bed much like you described. It's a thick piece of plywood set on 4*4 legs, maybe a foot high. It has 1*6 sideboards to keep the mat and pillows on the bed. They may have used a full sheet of plywood. Their five dogs share the space.

That's awesome! Happy Birthday to the fur baby. Today is my mom's birthday.
I wouldn't worry about people not talking to you, people have been weird all year.

I am in total agreement with everything Soup said. She quite accurately describes the way I've been feeling lately, much of it due to post-election trauma around me (and I didn't even have a pony in this race!)
Also, Elsa, as everyone before me has said, we all love you very much. I am so surprised to read that you are feeling heat from people... but I think most folks here love and appreciate you. I know I do.
I'm just not verbal lately.
And much love and happy birthday to Lila, too! Your fur people are an integral part of your extended family up here, so please know that we enjoy reading updates on them as well.

Hope she'll be better! I'd trust the person "speaking dog" here. I certainly have two in my household. My Husband helped me to overcome a trauma caused by an untrained terrier at the age of 5. And my Daughter... Well, apart from her pointing at every dog she sees since she was 8-monts-old and being generally speaking dog crazy, we were over at my SIL's place at Christmas, and they have a dachtshund that she first met as a baby. He regards her as a pactmember to protect. Now, when they were chilling on the floor, my Daughter caught him eating some plastic wrapping, and said in a very firm, packleader voice (mimicing my SIL, no doubt), "No, *dog's name*, don't eat it. It will make your tummy hurt." Sure enough, the dog vomited on a carpet the next morning. I've also let her see some none bloody animal resue or vet shows, and she is transfixated. I think she'll likely become a vet, Moon conjunct Cancer sextile Taurus MC she is.

Hugs and love to you both Elsa and Lila!
Have to limit comp. time, strained my eyes, still spend too many hours digging deep into politics.
Could Lila be hearing a sound that frightens her, one too faint for you to hear? My dog (part Border Collie, a herder) gets spooked sometimes, won't go out for walk, clings and shakes when there's any sound like fireworks. In my last neighborhood it turned out to be the sound of the bat making contact with the ball at minor league stadium half a mile from my house! I only realized it when we drove by the stadium one night and he reacted, then noticed his reaction coincided with the scheduled games there. I now live near two schools with evening games...

Well, Elsa, how's she doing? Still sleeping on your head at night?
I had to laugh when you said this: It's like she's decided that independence isn't what it's cracked up to be.
God help me, I'm a Lila, minus the fur.

We all love you here, Elsa and appreciate everything you do. There's a lot of haters out there on the internet that enjoy being mean to others. I think its like a sport for some of them and for others, its a form of therapy. They can say the most awful things to anyone on the internet because they're mostly anonymous and there are no repercussions, for the most part. I'm sure you'd like to go back at them sometimes, but its better for you not to get involved. You don't have to meet up to their expectations. If they don't like you or your site, they can leave. Your site is free, so they have no right to expect anything.
There are a lot of unhappy people in this country and they were that way even before the election, but the election was the last straw. They didn't win and refuse to accept it, so they riot and protest, endlessly. There are even paid, online trolls, paid protesters, agitators, etc. I hope the payers have a lot of money because Trump's agenda is going to carry on despite them.
I hope Lila is feeling better. She's still young at 6 years old.

Thanks, everyone. Lila is coming around. No longer wrapped around my head, though she does spend more time *with* the family as opposed to treating us like we're her sheep! 🙂
