    I got shot down for more than one job for lack of exp and being too young, visually. If you really want to read that rant, it's in my old journal approximately 5,256,717 times.

    I'm glad you and Bill talked it out. That's one thing that I commend couples on that can talk it out. I can't with Clint. I usually just let it fester and then cry it out. I know it isn't healthy, but that has been the only way I can function with him emotionally at times. He can't handle it if I get emotional(which is often if we discuss something that can get heated or otherwise make me emotional). I think this is why I do my damndest to just avoid things with him for the most part.

    oh, so glad you talked it out. I suspect he is really a very good person who can be clueless at times. (at least that is my experience with my DH). Generally when he and I do talk it out we have such different perspectives on the same situation that it is hard to tell it is even the same situation!

    So next rant I will try to "listen" more and "talk" less, and just be here for ya.

    Glad to hear you had a good discussion! I think communication is the hardest thing in marriage. I did not have a good example nor did DH. We bumble along in that regard.

    There is no nursing shortage in the Northeast right now. In fact NY is trying to make it harder to become an RN. You would need a Bachelor's degree instead of an AS.
    Why can't he just leave that spot blank? Again, it's not a condition of being hired or not, legally, so it shouldn't matter if he omits that information... Oops... missed that line.

    I hope your DH gets a job soon; that will help everything. It is so tough with the job situation. Nursing is tough because it seems to me that many of entry level positions are taken by people who are already employed at the hospital in other positions such as administrative or one of the allied health jobs. That is the case here and at the last hospital I worked in. And I've been young and now I'm old, and let me tell, you nothing is easier when you are older.

    I get what you are saying about the legality, but from the perspective of the "hirer" omitting information and claiming "oops" doesn't speak well for the "Attention to detail" that would be required for the job you are applying for.... and an ER nurse is ALL about attention to detail.....

    ^This.

    Yesterday I worked in some of my ideas and your suggestions for solving the exhaustion problem. Even though I had carbed up on Sunday, I was not much more energetic, but being in emotional turmoil always makes me want to sleep.

    I drank 100oz of water yesterday. Chris will be proud of me. Did not go to the bathroom much, which tells me I am dehydrated.

    I had two cubes of bouillon. I think I'll cut that down to one. Gained lots of water weight overnight. Wt. Sun. 228.8, Wt. Mon after binge 232.5. Wt today 234.

    I added another dose of 5htp in the afternoon and took my iron pill with it, about 4 hrs after lunch. I am sticking to one iron pill for now switching to two during my period.

    Made it to the gym for cardio kick. I did it at high intensity and it felt good. I hit my low end calories (1600-1700) yesterday pretty easily.

    I'd wish I could say everything is much better between my husband and I. We had a great day yesterday, but unfortunately we fought this morning about the education of our youngest son who has Asperger's syndrome. We are not happy with his special education placement. My husband has decided what he wants and expects me to fall in line even though I do not totally agree with his position. I am also the one that has to translate his demands to the district. I am in a tough spot being a teacher and the Mom. That is probably our biggest issue, He dictates and I chafe against that dictation. ****I am just venting, I have no plans to spend the day posting about my husband

    Congrats on the calories, and working to fix the exhaustion. I just posted an article in the EMF thread that might be helpful.

    It maybe the kind of carbs you added were not helpful? Yea, yea, yea! the water will eventually make a difference. I will admit though that only about a third of my fluids are water, I drink all sorts of different teas for various purported health benefits.

    I usually let DH's dictations sit with zero response for a while, and go back and revisit after I have had a chance to clearly formulate my response. Not arguing, just stating my position. If he goes back to his exact position, I walk away again and let him think about it. Then come back later and try to clarify, including some of his points if reasonable. On smaller things, where I think he is being unreasonable, I tend to ignore the orders. (not possible in this case though).

    Chris - The carbs were added as part of a binge. I have no intention of adding carbs to my eating plan on a regular basis. I was actually answering marcadav. Her conjecture us that the VLC is making me tired. That is possibly so, but this program helps curb my binge issue so much, I am not willing to give up on it yet.

    My husband and I talked and hugged it out before I left for work. We are in a very stressful situation. In this case he is right. Our son is not being served. I just don't like having to be the hard line messenger when I would be more willing to compromise.
    He wants me to speak for us because people respond better to me and I am "one of them".
