Spectra, it was a funeral. No one had to read her mind. Thanks for your kind words though.

OP here. Roommate is happy and floating on Cloud 9 because of new relationship. I told her that I'm trying to be happy for her, but can't because I'm struggling too much myself and to not take it personally. Erg, I feel like a terrible friend, but really need to take care of myself esp. now because of lots of raw emotions coming up with past trauma.

I definitely agree that healthcare workers are over worked and forced to come in when they are sick. It happened to me when I used to be a CNA. NEver again! I once went to work and was puking. I told my manager I had thrown up twice and she told me to just suck it up because we were already two short. I threw up the whole day and had diarrhea. By the end of the day I was lying in a corner of the employee lounge, clutching my stomach and moaning. My DH had to come pick ume up and he yelled SHE WILL NOT BE HERE TOMORROW! My manager gave him a dirty look. I called that morning to say I could not come in as I was very dehydrated and weak. My managaer said just come in later you can do a half day. I went in but sholdn't have, I was so weak I collapsed. I still got in trouble for leaving a pt with a call light on too long> What a disgusting place to work. I quite and took a different job but not much better at the next nursing home. They all expect CNA's to work no matter how sick they are, no matter how bad the weather is and we don't get paid well on top of it.

Speaking of migraines, I understand migraines are terrible and painful. I get them from time to time after my period so I know how rough they can be. But I can never understand my one friend who gets migraines almost daily and tells us how painful it is and she can't concentrate, she can't see, she's vomited and can't function. But yet, she's on Facebook all damn day complaining about it and laughing and commenting on other people's posts. She won't get any medication for it and she doesn't take anyone's advice either. I'm not believing her anymore.

Husb is angry at me over paying taxes. Every day there are long rants complete with filthy language and deriding comments about Obama, his cabinet, Biden, Michelle, politicians in general - just spewing hate. His language in the past months has become a constant stream of filth directed at politicians, Jews and blacks. Now I tell him I don't want to be around him when he is in an angry mood, that I am going out and won't be home for dinner. I don't mention that I'm concerned for my safety when he gets worked up. I leave around 3 p.m. but have nowhere to go. I spend the day moving my car from one parking lot to another, curled up in the back with a pillow and a book, but it's hard to concentrate enough to read. I return after 9 when I'm sure he's asleep.

My car was at a stopped at a light and noticed a guy using a cane at the intersection ready to cross. His cane caught my eye at first, but I didn't much of it. As he walks past my car, he looks up and our eyes instantly connect for a few seconds. His kind eyes and demeanor totally drew me in and I could not look away. Is it sad that I rarely make that type of connection with guys and definitely never at a stop light. Well, thanks cute guy for making my drive home more interesting!

This is going to sound so ungrateful, and I'm truly not, but I'm going to confess it anyway. I got a message from the florist that a friend of my was sending a gift and it would be delivered today. I was excited that I was going to have a beautiful bouquet of flowers to set on my counter for a week or so. Instead, they delivered a plant. A quite large plant in a tiny basket that looks like it needs to be re-potted soon. I don't have a green thumb. This poor plant doesn't have much of a chance. So now I have to go buy potting soil and a bigger pot and repot this plant that I don't really have a spot for in my tiny condo. Ugh. I feel like such a bad friend. I am grateful for the kind and thoughtful gesture, but it feels like work to me. Dang, just wanted some pretty flowers that I could enjoy for a week, then toss in the trash. Bad friend, I know.

My parents have been helping at there church for years. They have giving of their time and money freely from their hearts, without ever expecting anything in return. But now, the time when my mom could have used a helping hand in a much needed time of need, people at the church weren't there for her. She didn't say anything about it, but I'm sure she is wondering why. I'M wondering why. Isn't that what church people do for others, especially one of their faithful parishioners? Myself and her family were there for her, but it just goes to show you can't count on anyone. smh
