  • Yick, sounds rough Geo. I hope you are feeling better soon. I've found that when tired and stressed worrying about food only makes me more tired and stressed. Worry about diet when you are back in sorts.

    • Thanks Jon. I'm just really tired so I hope sleep tonight. Waking up at 4am because you cannot breathe is not fun. I've been doing this every day for the past week and a half. It could also be stress from work. I love my job, but the stress kills me. I've actually thought about going back to call center work as it's less stressful. Yes, I did say that. I want to stay here a year before I jump ship. Probably the most stressful part for me is dealing with the public day in and day out. It makes me not want to see people I care about. I've been reading about introverts vs extroverts and the job is making a forced extrovert during the day which is draining any energy I have for things what I want to do outside of work.

      In other news, I've been talking to an ex of mine via Facebook. We dated when I was 18 and he was 23 and I really liked the guy. We never officially broke up. I knew it was over when I heard he had started dating someone else since I was going away to college. I was upset and actually told him thanks for not telling me about the dumping. He wanted to start dating again when I came home for winter and I told him no. By the time I finished school, he moved to Florida. Fast forward 18 years and we are talking again. Definitely as friends, but he did tell me he considers me as the one who got away. That made me upset. I told him, why would you say that when you are the one who dumped me? I told him I should be the one who considers him as the one who got away considering how he dumped me. I told him it did hurt when he started dating that other girl who I was actually friends with. He apologized. I accepted it. I told him I'm married so all we can be is friends. He said that is fine. I'm trying to figure out WHY someone would say something like this. Oh well, c'est la vie.

      • Here's something I've been thinking a lot about lately. How do you not take your job home with you. I'm almost always concerned about some things/patients and it's scaring me. I will have dreams about patients, obsess about what I did or what I could do better and what I need to do the next day, etc. I even was talking aloud over the weekend over things I needed to do yesterday and I should be relaxing. I've never done this before with any other job I've had in the past. I've also found out that my friend who helped me get this job is thinking about leaving the company and I may have to take on one of her responsibilities and I'm not sure I want to deal with it. The other PCC in one of our local offices will refuse to do it, she's just lazy and doesn't want to contribute to the team. I'm just at a loss on this.

          It's hard not too, and thinking about work just pisses me off. I just try to remember that if I can't fix it at work, I sure as hell can't fix it at home. It helps but I still get pissy from time to time when work comes up.

          • I developed a mentality when I worked retail: check it at the door. Check home life at the door when I walk in the door, check work life at the door when I walk out the door. It doesn't always work, especially when one or the other has drama, but it's still pretty effective.
            Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

            • I start thinking of work stuff at the weirdest times and then it goes away. My friend who helped me get the job is very frustrated and talking about leaving the company. If she does, I know I'm going to end up with one if her duties and I don't want it. The LBD aka Lazy Bitch in Dublin won't do it and it's going to be thrown on me. I don't want to have to re verify insurance for 8-9 centers plus do my other duties on top of it. I have an understanding of insurance, but not a heavy enough understanding to want to take this on. And it's not like I will have a lot of training on this.

              • Been off prednisone for 2 days and my stomach keeps flip flopping, I'm dizzy and am close to having diarrhea. I'm hoping this is from going off the prednisone without stepping down and not a bug.

                    • Is there an echo in here? Happy Thanksgiving! (And Happy Birthday to Heather as well!)

                        • Thanks for the Thanksgiving well wishes, everyone. Its been busy as of late. We are supposed to have a work Christmas dinner Monday night, but I'm not going. With some stuff happening at work, I'm afraid I'd go off on our District Manager so it's safer for me not to go. I'll put it to you this way. He's an incompetent douchebag with a Napoleon complex. Plus, it would be an hour and a half drive to the dinner from the office so I would rather not go. They are having the dinner in the Mansfield. OH area so us Columbus people and the Akron people can get together.

                          I've gone back to grain free as of Monday. Still working out the kinks but doing better. Now, if I could just sleep, I'd feel even better. A friend of mine does some work with essential oils and is working on helping me order stuff to help with sleep, allergies/asthma and carpal tunnel. My carpal tunnel is flaring up big time from knitting scarves.

                          This is something that is bothering me. How do I get more involved in the girls lives? Caitlyn is feeling especially left out. I've been sensing this for awhile now and the other night Clint asked me what I want for Christmas and I told him to surprise me, but he should at least take one of the girls shopping and I said Caitlyn would be a good choice. His response was,"she would drive me nuts". Caitlyn isn't that bad of a kid. She's got a good head on her shoulders. Caitlyn and I were talking last night and I asked her in general, how does she feel about her relationship with her dad and she sarcastically said, "who is that?" We kind of laughed and then she broke down a bit and said when she went to the fall weekend camp for her youth group last month, in their small groups, she said she actually feels like her dad doesn't love her anymore. She actually justifed this by saying that since her dad never had a relationship with his dad, it's not his fault. I'm trying to figure out ways to get them to interact. I know what it's like to have a dad, then not have one when you're young and I don't want her to have that hole in her heart as it's hard to fix. Plus, I don't want them to not have a relationship in 10-15 years. I could see it happening.

                          • Lavender for sleep, it'll also help with allergies. As for your wrists, get a highlighter or fat marker and try rolling it on your wrist, keeping it parallel with the ligaments and stuff in your wrists. Good luck!
                            Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                            If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                            • It's 2014 already? Where did 2013 go? Spent the best part of Christmas week dealing with either a sick kid, or a sick Clint or a sick me. We all came down with the flu.

                              Come Monday, I'm back to primal. I'm actually restarting the leptin reset. I think I've gained 20-25 pounds since I was on prednisone in November. I needed a couple of shirts for work and had to buy size XXL Wednesday. That was depressing. Especially when you consider I was wearing a large shirt in September.

                              • I am now doing a Paleo leptin reset. Wanted to clean up my act even further. Glad to have you back.
