Gang, I am so distraught right now. It's been a very tough week, and I'm feeling really overwhelmed and stressed. I'm so sorry that I don't post here very often and then show up periodically with some dramatic story happening in my life. I just can't seem to manage everything going on. So far this week, my husband learned that his eye procedure failed and that he needs a serious second procedure hundreds of miles away that will hopefully fix the problem. He also found out he may have cancer, and he's going for a consult about that tomorrow. Meanwhile, a red spot has appeared right where I had a skin cancer removed six months ago. My mother is in the hospital recovering from a knee replacement, and I'm concerned about her. At work, I've been assigned to a new project that is consuming a LOT of my time and energy and for which I do not have clear direction. And today, a coworker indirectly implied in her remarks that I'm not achieving success in my position generally; that she, of course, is extremely capable and competent. I am extremely hurt and angered about her comments, but I have no resources left to rise above them. She is one of those people who always seems to have something negative to say about the work everyone else is doing, except her, of course. SHE is the only person capable of performing well, apparently. She knows everything and has no need for direction or other people. I am an extremely dedicated worker, and I pour my heart and soul into my work. It's hard to hear such negativity. Another situation also came up at work today too, so work is really stressful right now. Of course, life doesn't stop with all of this going on, and our youngest with Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) had a super tough night last night during his in-home therapy. I'm exhausted and near to tears. Could use some support, I guess.
