  1. I had a really bad day at work. My new annoying and difficult client is pushing me to my limit and I wasn't feeling good today to boot. Grrrr. And I kind of f'ed up by showing our client services director my stress today. I had to push back and let her know that I could not meet the client's extra request this week because I've already spent over the allotted hours they're paying us. If I spend extra time, then we're doing free work for them, not to mention my other client work suffers. Then I told her that if I am to do this extra task next week, that other tasks lined up for next week will have to wait. I am annoyed that this client is SO high maintenance and that they're demanding SO much of my time. I am also being stretched too thin at work, I am feeling the burden of it all, my boss says he'll lighten my load, but when exactly? I'm freaking dying over here. I suppose I should be flattered that my company gave me their most important client, but I am too overloaded and overstressed by it all to even feel that way. I'm grumpy. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. šŸ˜–
  2. Yes I am. But my boss is also helping me so I suppose he could partially be held responsible too if we lose them. But Iā€™m in charge of strategy.
  3. I will try my best!!! Thank you for your words of encouragement!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
  4. Aww, thank you Sober. I really need to hear this right now. I am questioning myself and everything I am doing. Yes, it would be awesome to save this client and to be responsible for it but at what cost to me? Right? I am SO stressed about it. I feel they've put far too much pressure on me. I put a lot of pressure on myself too, so it's not all their fault.
  5. I am very stressed. I have a client project due this week that my boss tells me must be awesome. I feel so much pressure as a result. We could lose this client, so a lot of it, or almost everything, hinges on ME to do work that will make them happy and stay. This doesn't help my anxiety problem in the least. I am struggling.
  6. I've been in a whirlwind prepping for my wedding. I'm getting so excited! But it's a lot to do, and we're not even having any guests, lol. Prepping for a tropical vacation AND a wedding in another country takes some planning AND paperwork! My goodness. Well, we got the paperwork in today... now it's just smooth sailing until May. Man, do I need a haircut badly -- that's next. Anyways, I am in good spirits!
  7. OMG. Our honeymoon is now weeks away. I cannot wait!!!! I went wedding dress shopping with mom and sis yesterday and tried on several pretty awful dresses, lol. Wow, I felt like the doll that stands on top of a wedding cake. Hehehe. So I've decided to wear the one I have. It's perfect for a beach wedding in hot weather. I'm going to have it taken in some to give it more shape, and my mom bought me all the right jewelry for it yesterday. Yay! I am now dreaming of drinks by the poolside, soaking in the hot tub on our balcony overlooking the ocean, and PURE RELAXATION. We even have our own butler! Seven nights and six full days of fun in the sun.šŸ–ļø ā˜€ļø šŸŒ“ I am now counting the weeks and days until we leave. We just have to pay the remainder of the deposit, email our documents over to them for the wedding today, and the deal is sealed. Our ceremony should be very special -- at a gorgeous gazebo overlooking the ocean, surrounded by tropical flowers. We've paid for photography so we don't have to take pics ourselves. Mom and dad paid for that part -- thank goodness. I'm getting SO excited now that it's closer!!!!!! Soon I'll be calling him my hubby! šŸ’•šŸ’˜šŸ’–šŸ’ž Awwwwwwwww. I couldn't have asked for a better man to marry. I am SO very happy!!! šŸ˜šŸŒ¹
  8. I had a big victory today at work, so I feel good. My boss could read my like a book yesterday since I wear my heart on my sleeves, lol. He could tell how stressed I was. He said he will lighten my workload, so I feel SO much better with him just telling me he will. Thank goodness. And Sat I go wedding dress shopping with my mother! I'm sooooo excited!
  9. Very anxious. I am listening to ocean waves trying to shake it off. This will now be my morning ritual. I hate anxiety. šŸ˜”
  10. We cannot fix past mistakes sometimes, so all we can do is try and be a better version of ourselves today than we were yesterday.
  11. Monday morning. I have to face my most difficult client this morning. I am not ready for this. I need more power in my coffee.
  12. I know this feeling. I am so sorry you're dealing with that. I usually interpret it to mean they are angry inside about something in their life that has not gone well or right, and they're taking it out on innocent others by lashing out with mean words. But that's an assumption. It's not fair, it's not right. Unfortunately, these kinds of people are everywhere. I try not to take it personally. It says everything about THEM, and who THEY are, but nothing about YOU and who you are. HUGS.
  13. Hi. I have not been through something similar, but what I can ask is: exactly how long has this gone on for? The lack of intimacy, the hatred of everything, etc? There's only so much pushing away that a person can take and for only so long. It sounds like he needs treatment and possibly medication if he is diagnosed as depressed, but in the meantime, what about YOU and YOUR needs within a relationship? Are you willing to stick it out to see if he recovers? That may take months.... he probably needs individual therapy to help him out of this negative slump, and like I said, probably meds. I personally wouldn't be able to hold on very long in that situation myself, especially if I am not married to the person, and especially if there seems to be no hope for a long-term commitment and partnership. I guess what I am asking is: how long are you willing to go through this with him? It impacts you as well, your happiness and your ability to live a fulfilling life.
