    I feel very fortunate to have such a wonderful husband. He makes me feel very lucky and very loved. I don't think I could help out here as much if it wasn't for his love and support. I also feel very fortunate to be one of the Mods, Support Staff, and Admin here on DF who volunteer their time and talent. I believe in what DF offers, and I know they do, too.

    One Foot In Front of the Other....

    Does anyone else hear that phrase as sung by Kris Kringle and the Winter Warlock in the old claymation movie 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town'? I dearly love that scene- it makes me bawl like a little baby every. single. time. And no, I'm not spreading Christmas cheer - my attitude towards the holidays is more like 'so it begins'. I love Thanksgiving, I have a ton of wonderful family memories from Thanksgiving. And Christmas too. But Christmas comes with a virtual obligation of gift giving, and I can barely keep my family fed in the good months. So Christmas becomes a reminder of 'oh, look 20YaC at how badly you are failing!' So yeah, not excited about Christmas, nope. Things blew up a little Thursday at work. I can't really say much more than that - I just erased it all and thought better of it. I was going to put this blog entry out Thursday and decided not to. That's where I'm at right now. I hate it when work is like this-walking on eggshells all the time and waiting for the inevitable explosion. Because I feel like who I am and how people perceive me means there is a target painted on my back, regardless of my behavior. It triggers my anxiety and panic into overdrive. I hate feeling terrified so much of the time. And the crazy thing is, that it is only in the last couple of years that I am figuring out two basic things most people already know : a) it's not always my fault or about me and b) work shouldn't feel like this.

    Don't be afraid to speak up & let your doc know what you are comfortable with, and even to ask him to explain the reasoning behind his decision, letting him know your concerns. It might be that his reasoning is different than what you think it might be. Either way it is good to know why he is doing what he is doing. A good doc won't hesitate to enlighten you.
