Re: World War III - I pushed the button

Views,

We have a lot in common. Also lifelong food issues here. Dad was also a drinker. My experience of abuse was largely emotional neglect from both parents. This too can really scar a person.

So glad you have great friends to help! I have some but not enough who get this kind of thing.

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Not much to add here...I am going through that process too. It helps to know you are too, although I wish none of us had to. Polar Bear, yeah it's all about expectations (positive and negative) and disappointments, isn't it? The contrast can be very stark. I think I'm very much at the beginning of t...

I got lucky, I think he had a cancellation. Next opportunity would have been Dec or Jan.

Re: Vulnerable

I am amazed at how easily we humans point fingers when it is something "we" wouldn't do, yet expect compassion for our own issues (this group excepted!). Why can we not be compassionate at ALL times. Almost none of us try to be sick, fat, drunk, or whatever else it is. No one woke up one ...

Good point, I need to not define myself as I think others may be. Some are, but probably some aren't!

Re: Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Thank you for my much-needed does of laugh-out-loud. Twice in one post! :lol: :lol: On a serious note, it is very hard to think clearly when you're sleep-deprived or otherwise feeling sick. Often when I've been sleep-deprived and incapable of the simplest thing, I've felt like there was something f...

Re: Vulnerable

Oh and the other thing he did...he gave me samples of the respiratory med. I was following him down the hall, and when he got to his drug sample cabinet, he literally asked me, "Can you step back please?" :lol: He didn't want me to see what he had in his cabinet! I wasn't even close enough...

Re: Vulnerable

I have appreciated all these replies. What an intelligent and well educated group. I saw a dietician who said that too low or no fat diets are not good...the fat in food creates the feeling of satiety, ie fullness. Beth, I agree with you regarding the food bars. I won't be buying any from him. I've ...

It's settled! Seeing specialist!

I just wanted to thank everyone who has been gently and persistently encouraging me to go to a specialist or quality of care center. I have been realizing how idiotic it is to allow myself to continue to be miserable, or at least to not know which of my current health symptoms are due to undertreate...

Re: Getting off of Requip due to augmentation

It makes me angry that you have to go through this. It seems to me that she should have granted you at least a few months of peace :evil: , but preferably, she should just keep prescribing the medication that is allowing you a semi-normal life. Would she be able to do her job if she woke up for an ...

Outburst at UPS Store Guy

Now, do I file this under 'Help for Relationships' or 'Humor'? :lol: I went to the UPS Store to mail something certified return receipt. The guy wanted me to write the address on the envelope in addition to the postcard part that literally gets stuck on the envelope. I questioned him about it since ...

Re: What Relationships?

It's terrible what living with a chronic illness can do to relationships. I am experiencing that now. I suspect that some good psychotherapy and maybe meds if appropriate may improve your ability to compensate for some of the social symptoms you are experiencing (for example impulse control). I've t...
