  1. So he is out of surgery? Now you can "give him a piece of your mind for not saying goodbye this morning. LOL Although, I know that once you see him, you will spoil him, as he recovers. :)
  2. I've never been to a depression support group. (There never seems to be any in my area) but I hope that it was helpful for you. Keep plugging away at your work. I hope that it doesn't get too stressful. You're doing well keeping "all those plates up in the air." (( )).
  3. Not sure if you are a "business as usual" kind of person or a "take time out" kind of person for coping with the waiting time. Maybe a little of both....... Just keep sending those good thoughts out to him. (( )).
  4. I remember when my Father had heart surgery. The surgery turned out well, It was just a lot of sitting around waiting for me. I guess, I just decided that once he left his hospital room, I just had to trust or think that everything was going to turn out well. I knew that my "work/worry" was going to be once he got out of surgery. The visiting, and recovery and taking him for walks, and things like that. I'm not saying don't worry, because any surgery can have complications, but I don't know, I hope that you can go through the waiting time with peace and faith, Also, at the time I didn't want my father to see that I was worried, so I just sort of blocked it out and it helped me just kind be ok with things until later So I hope that things go very well for both of you and father. Sending good healing and tranquil thoughts.
  5. Maybe it's all just catching up with you, plust Monday malaise just sucks anyway. You'll get another crack at the day tomorrow. (( )).
  6. I too am a call center casualty. You really have had worked there for a period of time to really understand the feelings it can evoke. The one thing good about it, is that your coworkers are usually pretty nice because of the fact the customers can be absolute terrors so there tends to be more "solidarity" with your teammates. You do need to leave that job before it actually "changes" you. And usually that change is not for the better. I would experience a lot of road rage after work and after a few years. I just quit cold turkey. A coworker of mine didn't quit, and she is now on Paxil. (ok I know it is not the sole reason but call center work sure did not help matters.). But once you have been through call center work for a good period of time, know that you will be able to handle pretty much any obnoxious person that you may encounter in life :).
  7. Right now I like the sleep hypnosis videos by Michael Sealey
  8. They should at least treat the symptoms of the sickness. Are they not prescribing anything because of potential drug interactions with your depression meds? Or are they suggesting over the counter remedies for certain symptoms? I hope that you aren't sick with something now, because that just makes life just all that much harder. Since your doctor won't give you anything, I will send you lots of healing good energy. (( ))
  9. " fake it till you make it," right? There's nothing wrong in getting another person's viewpoint. Consultants are used in business all the time.! You must be leaning all sorts of new things right now. Hi5 :)
  10. It's like when people tail gate me speed past me and then cut in front of me, just to end up at that red light ahead. I'm like, really? You wasted all that gas, expended all that energy, end up stopped at that red light, just to let me know that I am driving too slowly for your taste.
  11. Wow, that takes guts to go and have your writing critiqued, because it can go either way and really do a number on your writing confidence. Kudos just for going there. I know how it feels when people are unnecessarily harsh there's really no need for that.
  12. Helping others can be a tough at times, that's for sure. but I think it's because people's natural reaction to the "unknown" is avoidance. so that can often keep people stuck where they are.
  13. Sometimes i wish they had "depression buddies" like the support person you would get at AA, someone to turn to when times are tough. That is funny because a few months ago I had that same thought exactly. I mentioned it in passing on a different forum and it was "crickets". I do like your post though. It is very poignant.
  14. Nah, you didn't "lose" that job opportunity. You negotiated, and they didn't counter. They just took themselves out of the game. You my dear are still in the game so ROCK ON! :p
