    You just need the healing touch of a nice woman

    Edited to add gripes:
    1) my over-sensitive coworkers who need to have either the heat or A/C on full blast. Can we not just open the windows and enjoy the beautiful spring morning? It's a little humid outside, so what? It could be January.
    2) Sparring partners who won't actually try to hit me

    Nah, in IT, you need the Magic 1000 ball or the Wheel of Fixing.

    Anxiety, failing meds, and training I really can't miss mean I'm up at work with one of the worst feelings of nervousness and anxiousness I've ever had and I keep checking over my shoulder every 5 minutes.

Is this going to be a 'your word against hers' thing or can you pull up a witness somewhere?
    No witness other than the bus driver, me and the kids getting off of the bus. According to a defensive driving instructor at the Delaware Safety Council it's a thin line, and he said you're supposed to stop a certain number of feet from the bus except there is nothing in writing about that. According to a former crossing guard, I did nothing wrong. So now I have to wait to see if I get a ticket in the mail and go from there. I just don't handle this kind of waiting well and feel on the verge of a panic attack.

    Then challenge it; they will most likely drop it, or at least reduce the fine and not give you points.

    Having just started tracking my fertility, I read "Ovulation generally occurs on the 14th day after the first day of your last period, so you should abstain from unprotected sex for a few days before and a few days after"

    Crap.
