In response to a confession. Every call I get or make, I document date and name. Someone leaves me a message, I write down the info that's given. Yet when I was a paralegal (and everyone left detailed messages EVERY time), we had to hire someone to handle those 'someone from your office called me' calls.

"Someone from your office called me" translates to "I didn't listen to the voicemail and I suck." and now, you get handed off to every single person in the office until you find the person who called you. Or, you know, you could listen to your voicemail and just dial that person's extension and talk to them. Imagine that!

I brought a container of leftover roasted potatoes to work for lunch today, because I didn't have/take time Sunday to meal prep my lunches. And I ate the potatoes and now I feel all gross and tired and like I've got to go to the bathroom (rumble-stomach). I am filled with potato and chagrin.

A lady I used to work with died over the weekend. She was very sweet. A force to be reckoned with. She was 54. She loved her husband, kids, and grandkids. She had cats, that she loved very much. She vacationed every year in Florida with her family. I found out she killed herself. She shot herself in the head. Everyone is just in shock. Tell your friends and family you love them. Be kind. You just never know what people are going through.

In response to a confession. Big Hugs. I'm really sorry, OP, that you're dealing with this BS at your nonprofit. How long have you been there? I work for a nonprofit, too, but haven't had issues. However, I'm really not surprised all that some nonprofits lack ethics and only care about optics. Do you have an HR person you can report this to?

I am disproportionately pissed off that all this new software is supposed to be SO great and wonderful, yet the features I used in the old program, the ones that made my life easier, are not part of the new software. What the actual fuck? And why, oh WHY can't any of these software programs be designed to print a #10 envelope? I mean, the client addresses are in there, so WHY? Why is this shit so difficult for them? Sometimes I feel like everybody in the world is an idiot except me.

I'm over it and don't want to work today. Tired of putting out fires and cleaning up messes because people can't or won't listen the first damn time.

I am so over working in a nonprofit that acts more like a corporation. I need to move into the private sector where I will actually make some money and be treated better. This non profit is old, racist, and full of people who think they make a difference and then take credit for doing the work that direct service staff does. The CEO makes 500% of what I make. It’s embarrassing and wildly unethical.

I do think it's similar, and this is coming from someone who has been to in-patient eating disorder treatment, more than once. The mental aspects of compulsively overeating are not that much different than compulsive under eating. But the way they are perceived is vastly different. People see someone starving themselves to death, and they accept that it is a mental illness and they need treatment and help. Very few people will just say to eat a sandwich. But people see someone eating themselves to death, and they tell them they are just weak and need to eat a salad.

I did a medically supervised reverse diet. Gained weight, of course. Never lost it. Didn't change anything. I don't know if I'm cranky. I think bitter is the better word. It's ridiculously unfair to not be able to eat like a normal person.
