((((Cookie)))) Wow, you are under a lot of stress. My old therapist worked with me a lot on letting things go. Like with your friend's funeral. You did what was best for you. It doesn't diminish what you felt for your friend or the fact that you are grieving. Your friend knows where your heart is. Do not feel bad about not going. It is only natural that you would still be grieving for you step mother and of course, your friend. What is going on with your Aunt? I hope she is getting better. As for your surgery...yes, talk to the dr so you can get all that set in your mind and be on the same page with the dr. Try to look on the positive side. This might be exactly what you have been waiting for. I wish I could be there to go with you. Vent anytime! Take care...thinking of you and sending hugs! xoxView Thread
Plans: went to the gym, got groceries. Had a little excitment in the neighborhood...my son and I saw a swarm of bees. I wasn't sure what to do so I called my neighbor. She keeps bees. She said they were honey bees so she has been working on "capturing" them in a hive. Very interesting to see.View Thread
Melly...I wish this were all different for you. I do think it is good for you to vent when you need to.
It is sad about the people not coming to see you. It is no excuse, people get busy (and selfish to be honest). I am glad y ou have your dh and boys there. They sound like they are doing a lot to help you. I think in these situations, it makes people feel good when they can do something to help.
Melly, hope you have gotten some rest! I had to do a double take at what time you were posting. Hope it isn't too long of a day for you.
Here: Weather: rain
Mood: anxious, up and down
Plans: still need to give the dog a bath. Need to do other things but feel like doing nothing. Just one of those days. I did get dressed so there is that at least.
After some time (and some wine last night), my anxiety is a bit less. I decided I am probably over reacting to things and other than me, who cares about what happened 25 years ago? I am probably the only one that remembers it.
Cookie how are you doing today? I think it is good that you are taking your time about finding just the right "sister" for Chewy. With our dogs, we say our lab is the evil step sister...or lately, it has been "grandmother".
((((Michelle))) So nice to hear from you. I have been in the same situation as you and I am trying hard to be active again. I missed everyone here and need the friendships. Take care and hope we hear from you again soon! xoView Thread
(((Cookie))) Did I miss something about a puppy? I hope you can find some joy in your day. Be good to yourself.
Here: Weather: ok..supposed to rain again later
Mood: anxious but trying
Plans: did some errands. Need to take care of all the pets. The older dog needs a bath, I don't feel like doing it. I am anxious because I am worried that something from my past might come back to haunt me. I am hoping it is far enough in the past that it will stay there. I have kept it under wraps (I think!) for 25 years, I would hate to have to deal with it now.
Plans: did groceries and errands. Truthfully, my mood would be worse but there was a nice nurse at my son's pediatricans office who bent over backwards to help me. Just made my day so much easier...I couldn't stop thanking her. Waiting to hear about a possible MRI on my shoulder.
Cookie, I look forward to hearing about the dog you are looking at. I guess your dh came around to that whole idea? I hope that your pain isn't worse. Take care. Everyone have a good weekend!View Thread
