    Karna. I am so sorry and hope the separation let's you step back and decide what's best for all of you. In the meantime, you take care of yourself and your kids and do something fun for yourself. Are you getting any kind of counselling?

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Hi all. I'm new to this thread. Actually though I've been registered for a while, I was hardly active at all till recently. And now that I'm feeling more a part of this dear community, and now that my troubles are much less than they were in recent years, I'd like to be here to support others, and undoubtedly myself at some point again too, because that's life.

    I welcome PMs and can be especially understanding in matters of anxiety. I've also had my share of bad relationships, scary workplaces, and surgeries, if that helps anyone.

    I've just read back a little bit so I'll jump in first for MRD because I've been hearing the more positive side elsewhere, and I'm sorry to hear that your healing is more difficult today. I wonder if there might be a better med for you. Painkillers are important post-surgery but there might be one with less adverse reactions. In any case, I send you hugs and and good thoughts that you'll feel much better tomorrow.

    karna I don't think we've met but my heart totally goes out to you and your kids. I know you'll all be better off for this at some point but I'm sorry for your heartbreak and challenges meantime. My prayers are with you too.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    It's been a strange day. I still can't sleep, but my pain level shot up due to massive swelling in my belly. I stayed in bed most of the day with ice packs and slept a bit and now, even though its 4 am and I can't sleep, at least my pain level has gone WAY down. I haven't had a pain pill in hours and am taking ibruprofen only. And once the swelling went down, so did the pain.
    We did call the dr. and he said that the 2nd day can be worse as the first one you still have anesthetic helping out. He wasn't too concerned about the swelling and suggested the ice.
    I think if I could get more than 2 hours sleep at a time, I'd be feeling MUCH better. But just having the pain reduced did wonders.
    Funny thing is, we sedated the dog to clip him and bathe him (he bites when we bathe him and hates baths and now we know clipping too).
    So the big lug was loopy on his medication and so was mom. He did manage to plant his large self in a medium sized dog bed. Something he's been trying to do for months and today he managed it. It's now flat as a pancake, but he's happy. Bogie is NOT. It was his bed.
    Maybe I should have taken the dog meds, because he slept all afternoon.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I need to know if I'm overreacting to something or not. I was hired as a nanny for a wonderful family with 2 kids, and the family seems to be pleased with my service. I found this family through a craigslist posting.

    Anyways, my friend [who is also a nanny] inadvertently responded to her ad as well [Craigslist makes your email addy anonymous so you don't know who you are responding to]. She emailed her and asked if the position was filled, and the lady I nanny for said yes. However, my friend told me that she mentioned in the email that I am going to be back in school for the fall, and she won't be needing me once school starts. We have never discussed anything about terminating the position once I go back to school, so I was a bit confused. She then asked my friend to talk to her about starting once school started because I won't be available. She mentioned that she will be looking for someone in August.

    I can still work after I get home from school at 3, but I guess she doesn't feel like that's a good time. I'm pretty upset that she would mention not needing me without talking to me about it first. What do you think I should do? Should I mention something when I see her tomorrow, or should I just drop it? I would hate to be told before I start school that she won't need me anymore, but then again, I wouldn't want to put her in a bad position.
