Oh man, so much to do and think about. Someone on one of the boards mentioned about taking all your problems and lining them up in a row and they wouldn't seem quite so overwhelming. Then take one at a time until you dealt with them all. I've always had trouble with that concept. You would think it would be easy for me having been in AA and believing in the one day at a time theory. I think I'm just stubborn. But it does seem for you if you could focus on one or two things, work them out, and then move onto the next, it would really benefit you. You take on way too much. And as far as cars go, you should consider public transportation. I have never known anyone to have the bad luck with cars that you've had, jeez.
I think calling a counselour is a great idea. They may have some great ideas for helping you cope with this mountain of crap that's falling down around you. Let me know what happens.
Nothing really new with me dear. My back is still trashed and I'm living on pain killers. I do have an appt at the No. California Spine Institute. The guy I'm seeing does non-invasive injectional therapy. He uses cortisones, steriods, and some other meds I can't pronounce. I'm hoping it will help so I can get off the pain meds. The wife and kids are great. My youngest daughter is babysitting my granddaughter for the summer to earn some extra money. I'm still looking for full-time work, but there's nothing on the horizon yet. Like I said Rach, it's SOSDD.
Well, that about all I got for now.
I love you bunches. Say hi to downunder for me :),
> I just felt way too overwhelmed with everything going on - the laser treatment, my kitty (who is still living, just, but I can't see her because she lives with my parents and I need to be here for work), work is just ridiculous...who knew that making sandwiches would be SO stressful???, I broke it off with a guy I had been seeing, moving house (STILL not unpacked, don't have furniture, don't have a flatmate yet), and there's another biggy that I can't talk about here, but I have mentioned at ASH.
> Plus every little cruddy thing that can go wrong, is going wrong. My car broke down, I lost my wallet, I found my wallet but my bank card was missing (which I discovered at the supermarket checkout), my phone and my mobile phone were disconnected because I couldn't pay the bill because I didn't have my card so I couldn't access my money, I've gotten rude notes from my neighbours (because I dared to park a different way to fit more cars in the car park), my friends have decided now would be a nice time to start excluding me...
> It all just really got to me today. But I went to work (as much as I really wanted to call in and quit), and I think I may have moved past my little temper tantrum. Now my phone is on, and I think the first person I call will be a counsellor so I can make an appointment and have a chat.
> How are you, G?
