Re: Waiter, check please

That's my "typical" reaction to triggers; I seldom become depressed by them, which is supposed to be the "typical" female response.

I wonder if I have too much testosterone?

Re: Waiter, check please

Well it gets better...I called my 61 yeard old dad in FL who lives with is 85 yr old mother in misery..well it turns out that he hasn't eaten in five days and is throwing up black stuff. He refused to go to a hospital and my grandmother is immobile with anxiety and fear. So I was present enough to take action and long story short got an ambulance out there. He refused to go, but his blood presure was so low, sugar so high and it looks like he was coughing up blood, that they just took him. I got a vm from a Lt Johnson who said it looks like they can't take care of themselves and "if you could see what I am looking at...it's foul." So they are going to get some social services intervention.

I don't know what's going to happen with them, but I know this is beginning to get too much. I don't mean to be selfish, but the tank is running on fumes now. I see the PDoc tonight, thank god, and I am going to have to talk to him about the possibility of short term disability if this doesn't get better.

Half of me is present and in the now and the other half is crumbling. I hope the half that is present is able to stay there.

Re: Waiter, check please

I hope you can get on temporary disability too. Maybe you could just take a breather then?

You have gone through a lot and it says a lot about your character to keep going. I am just by myself, so if anyone is selfish... it is me. I can usually get things taken care of... but you have been holding together a family. That says a lot about you man.

Keep up the good work, because though you don't see it right now... I notice it and I am sure others do too.

Re: Waiter, check please

It's called BS overload....
Call and see if you can get the temp disability, docs are usually good about it.
I almost did it when Kee was pulling his crap..I was eligable for the FMLA but I ended up not needing it...however it was comforting to know....it was there if I wanted it.

You are not stable on meds yet...perhaps he can give you some anxiety med to at least help with that why you are still titratiing up on the Lamictal.

Keep talking.....
I know you don't feel like it now, you are stronger than you know.
Everytime you feel like giving up...go look at the kids...
See my sig...that is why I use it...and look at it..
They are the only reason ....I am here...


Hope

Well they are now taking my grandmother to the hospital because she fell and is completely out of it. The rescue worker guy told me that by foul he meant there was feces and vomit all over the place.

Bottom Line I actually have to intervene to get ehm help.....

Re: Waiter, check please

The only question for me this morning is the following:

I know the truh is right now I am caught up with events that I have no control over. Even with my BP can I let go and go with the current or continue to swim upstream against it. I am still in bad shape. My stomach hurts from being in knots yesterday. Everythign seems so big and I feel so small, but that is the position of the "little me" in the ego.

The PDoc is putting me at 150 for two weeks and then 200mg. I am thinking of telling my company about my condition. They are very big and have a huge outsourced HR dept. I am thinking of asking of working officially virtual as a reasonable accomodation. I work 98% of the time virtual, but if they make it official I don't have to hide the fact that I am moving to FL.

To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.

~e.e. cummings, 1955 ~





A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it.
~Jean de La Fontaine ~






All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another. ~Anatole France~








Wish I could be there with you my friend, it's heart breaking when we know what you are going through and can't do crap about it from here.
My heart and thoughts are with you.

Well you are so close to moving on, what is the danger in just coming out with the truth and using the ADA / 504 to cover yourself? You have the backing of your doctor? If that is what you need to do , do it.
What is the alternative? You becoming so overwhelmed you blow a gasket and then aren't covered because they don't know? It's just a thought? My job knows now. I told them when I went through all that with Keenan. I don't use the accomodations but they are aware.

It will get better. The problem is, it often gets worse first.


When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
~Author Unknown




Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. ~Anne Lamott

Re: Waiter, check please

I don't have all of that flashy font colors or the loving inspiration as everyone else today but what end are you at today, I am up, I am feeling a bit mean today too.

my daily manic behavior was playstation games and a salon visit, my hair is now blue black.

I am here for support because I hate feeling this way and I am sure that you aren't feeling the best either...

Hang in there, and remember you are not alone
