2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Life really resembling Hell right now
« on: December 12, 2011, 04:25:47 am »
Things have been going wrong for a while (as I'm sure some of you are aware) but recently it's been getting a lot worse. My daughter Elizabeth is having an operation next week on her ear- they are removing the T Tube and grafting her inner ear. It's not a major thing but she is still nervous as this may not go as smoothly as we hope. Also, just to add to the family stress, I have just been diagnosed with Autoimmune Liver Disease. They think that it has been caused by all the medication that I have to have for my other conditions (MS, Prolaped Disc, Ehlers Danlos etc). The problem is compounded by the fact that I have to keep taking my meds and that they can't be changed (11 types of tablets, 3 times a day for the last decade doesn't do your body any favours in the long term). And, just to cap it all, my cousin's 3 children (ages 8, 5 and 2) have just been diagnosed with Autism.

Things have been really stressed here lately, which is why I've not been around much. I've been trying to deal with everything but I'm finally admitting that I need help. If anyone could spare any energy or add my family into their prayers, it would be very gratefully recieved.

Thank you so much.

My gods, that is really a mess.

Good thoughts coming your way.
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'
