    Re: Talk about your troubles

    The nice thing about the washer and dryer is they basically sit in the middle of a big open unfinished basement. The fridge I measured but really with that space size I'm limited to the smaller top freezer fridges which limits the options usually to like 2 fridges. I've only replaced that once. I bought all my appliances at once when I bought the house. Stove, washer/dryer and fridge. Fridge died after about 7 years or so. Stove and dryer are still going good. Washer stopped making noises by the second load so I figure I got some more time on it.

My lower disc muscles were messing with my spine and giving me hell. I've had 3 spinal adjustments this week alone.....they thought it would be good to do my neck too. Boy did I feel good after doing them and the muscle therapy. It just sucks! Bad timing! In 2 weeks I am going on vacation!! I'm having to wear a brace in the meantime and still a tad sore! Anyone else have a similar issue? I've been so paranoid lately, too...watching how I sit....sleep...stand....drive! It's so frustrating. It's like having to retrain myself on how to do things....
    Yuck! How awful for you, and frustrating too. I hope you feel better in time for vacation, so you can enjoy it! Take it easy on yourself.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I just feel hopeless. Despondent Doc released me to return to work in 2 weeks. Principal still wants to discuss "that day" Union guy is worried they will try to "run me out of the building" My restrictions are really not feasible in a Middle School setting. They are working on trying to find a different placement but....

    because of all the crap we have been dealing with my other half and I have been growing really distant and some off the cuff comments have been made that just make me want to walk away-but I can't. If I lost his insurance I would die pretty quickly and since both of my parents are gone, I have no where to go.

    I just wish . well, I don't know what I wish but going to sleep and waking up in Heaven sounds awesome; every night I pray to God to just take me home

    Bake that union rep a batch of cookies and clear the air with your other half. You need them both in your corner. Have that talk with your principal and emphasize that it is a medical issue. Visualize the outcome you want, complete with the positive feelings. Surrounding you with love.

    Oh Tapper! It sounds like you need to talk to someone. Since you have insurance you probably have access to a therapist.

    Sending love!

    tapper01, I'm truly sorry you're feeling so anxious. I have faith that your administration will sympathize. How could they not? This was completely out of your control. The union needs to stand up for you - that's their job. Remember how valuable you are and exude that kind of confidence when you go in there.

    And I agree with Gutmutter, regarding your other half. Focus on reconnecting. It's been a trying time for both of you.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    A friend of mine called me crying last night - her husband died - heart attack or stroke (they don't know yet) after coming home from the gym - he went to take a nap - her daughter couldn't revive him. She called me at 10pm - I went to stay with her while the sheriff's officers were there and til the Medical Examiner got there to remove the body. Victim Services were there to help her out through it. I got home at 1am. They went to stay at a hotel. Her mom is getting here around 430 this afternoon. It's all so surreal. One minute they are selling their house, signing a lease on an apartment, downsizing to live with 1 kid going into high school and 1 off to basic training with the Air Force...and the next, this happens. It's crazy. He was only 41 years old and they had been married for 20 years! I know she's in shock. I wish I could have blown off work to sit with her til family arrived but my bosses are jerks and I have to take off next week for my parents so I couldn't do it. I've told a few our mutual girlfriends and I know they are willing to help but she says she doesn't need anything right now. I know she will need help in the weeks to come. wow, just wow.

    I'm so sorry, PGM35. That's too young, and too sudden.

    Thank you for taking such good care of your friend. She'll never forget it.

    PGM35, how tragic! It should be the prime of their lives.
