Harassed by repair person

I have just had an awful experience with a home repair person I have known and used for 4 years. This guy was referred to me by a man I knew and trusted, who had no idea that this repair person has the problem he does. The repair guy, I'll call him J, has always been a flirt. I flirted back in the b...

Re: World War III - I pushed the button

Views, yeah it is really sad more isn't required to be a parent. I read that book too.

My mom tends to apologize for the past. I can get over the past. But she does the same crap now. Zero insight. I'm just fed up.

Re: New to Site; hello to all

That sounds horrible! I know you're not into government stuff, but you may want to consider getting an attorney on contingency and applying for SSI. You do need a medical record for that so maybe re consider going to the doctor. This is a complex illness and I can't imagine trying to go it alone. It...

Re: exhaustion provides no reserve to deal with stress

The effect of poor sleep - even when medications are "controlling" the symptoms - is devastating. It's a life changer. It's the difference between generating a scientific paper and being unable to even read one, let alone do original research. It's the difference between doing all the thi...

Speaks to the desperation of the sleep-deprived. I hope you find something that works without this side effect.

Re: First night on oxycontin

I did it last night. For crissakes it wasn't that hard! Oh lord, can I ever relate to that. I have been through so many episodes of putting something off, and when I do decide to do it, it takes less time than I spent deciding to put it off Exactly! It took all of half an hour to an hour to figure ...

Re: Neighbors from you-know-where, anyone?

Just popping in to say that these fools stole my trash can on trash day when I wasn't home and left me with their trash can instead, which is older and maybe smaller. They also put trash in it, which I removed and put in front of their curb. I have it on security camera. I suspect they did the same ...

Re: It's settled! Seeing specialist!

They don't need a brain...just follow the clinical treatment algorithm, right? [sarcasm]

What's more than a little scary...they are opening their own private medical school soon!!! That creeps me out.

I'm sharpening my grievance-writing pencil already.

Re: Issues feel insurmountable

Thanks deb... Beth yeah that's a good point...not to change too many things at once. Amazingly, today I received in the mail an enrollment special from the gym waiving the start up fee and going month to month! :lol: Swimming or water aerobics will help my joints and help relax me.

Re: Issues feel insurmountable

If it's depression, it's different than all previous episodes in my life. I've been on the same meds since 2005 or so. I'm afraid to change them for fear of making my situation worse. In the past when I tried to go off them, I'd get into an agitated depression and it was bad news. It might be worth ...

Re: World War III - I pushed the button

Views, I appreciate what you said, especially the last paragraph. I have said similar things many times. It was my mom's birthday in Oct. Usuaĺly I send a card and or call. This year I just emailed. I haven't wanted to engage. If I had the energy I would have sent a card but I did not get it togethe...

Re: Issues feel insurmountable

Here is a thought fragment. It all feels like being taxed beyond my ability to respond. That's the language I put to it tonight. Come home exhausted, almost too tired to feed the dog and floss my teeth. But of course I feed the dog. The teeth, most of the time. Anything else I can put off, I put off...

Re: New to Site but not to RLS

Welcome! That sounds very frightening to be falling asleep like that. I'm glad you are getting the sleep study. Hang in there.
